Hello, we’re Jonas (writer) and Sage (publisher/Sweet Candy Press). We want to tell you about Jonas’s book, The Greatest Most Traveling Circus. It is set to be released in March 2014 by Sweet Candy Press. It will be Jonas’s debut book and Sweet Candy Press’s fourth title.
The Greatest Most Traveling Circus is an anthology of stories about vampires and superheroes, gypsy curses, giant killer robots, psychics, love potions, bar fights over stolen angel wings, imaginary monsters, magical traveling pants and the devil as a red-headed con man. But it’s also a novel about overcoming depression, struggling with suicide, handling loss, and trying to find meaning in a world where the supernatural isn’t the hardest part of life to accept. Above all, it’s about finding friendship when it is least expected--but most needed.
This is the first volume of a two-part story that would later continue as the less surreal, more auto-biographical zine Cheer the Eff Up.
