Welcome! This page is for book reviewers, bloggers and book clubs! If your book club is virtual, please indicate that in your email. We will only be able to send print copies to book clubs that meet in person but we will accommodate online clubs with eBook links whenever possible. Reviewers please contact us with the name of your publication, or if you are with a blog and/or club, the number of members, which book you'd like (currently there are three to choose from) and which month you plan to read it. Please also indicate where you/your members review. For example, if they review on Amazon or GoodReads please indicate that in your email. Our expectation is that by receiving a free copy, bloggers will share reviews on their blog and book club members will share their reviews on review sites like Amazon and GoodReads.
NO HELP AT ALL Coming in January 2024, No Help at All is Kimberly Davis Basso's third humor collection, following INDIE Book of the Year HUMOR Finalists I'm a Little Brain Dead and Birth and Other Surprises (no pressure though!). For anyone who likes the sound of self-improvement but doesn't necessarily want to do the work - you're in luck. Kimberly Davis Basso spend a year working to improve herself, so you don't have to. She explored everything from astrology to epicuriousity; customer service to numerology; daily affirmations to tidiness to science to her slight obsession with calendars and failed every personality test. She shares her lack of results with honesty and a mouthful of cold leftovers. Grab a front row seat to award winning humorist Kimberly Davis Basso’s attempts to improve herself from the inside out so you don't have to (you're perfect, we love you, great job!)
As always - thank you for supporting indie publishing.
REVOLVE Door Volume II Coming in November 2023, REVOLVE is Kimberly Davis Basso's second horror collection, awash in classics revisited, retold, reborn. Classics of the horror genre (vampires, witches, werewolves oh my) and classics of the not quite horror genre (a well loved poem and a fairy tale or two) are reimagined with KDB's particular brand of sinister. Yes, there are slivers of humor. Yes, there are slices of heartache. A follow up to her debut horror collection Next Door (called "superb" in LOCUS Magazine's 2021 Horror Year in Review and "like standing on the edge of a cliff waiting for Basso to push you off" by Gabino Iglesias, author of The Devil Takes You Home) REVOLVE is the second volume in the Door series. As always - thank you for supporting indie publishing.
NEXT DOOR is collection of thirteen short stories - twelve twisted tales and one true story. In King of Cape Cod, a child finds a treasure on a beach, inviting tragedy into his family. La Strega Ragna gives a new twist on an old recipe, while To the Mountaintop and Archives will have you rethinking your outdoor activities. Shimmer explores cultish devotion, while Chat Box, Drill, Mote and Ink offer a glimpse into the hidden lives of ordinary people in your neighborhood. When Horses Cry visits a haunted city, and Moo visits the end of the world. Cul de Sac is a suburban nightmare, and the little girl in The Deep End of the Pool is not at all what she seems. The thirteen stories NEXT DOOR make one very unsettling place to visit, and just might make you wonder about your neighbors.
BIRTH AND OTHER SURPRISES is a memoir of childhood and parenting (but you don't need to be a parent to enjoy it). It'sa written in the same brutally hilarious style as KDB's debut and book clubs have absolutely loved it. Why, yes, there is a chapter on Epidurals, Episiotomies and Enemas called E.e.e.k! and Kimberly did do all the research herself. You'll also get the Top Ten Questions she should have asked while pregnant and learn The Stupidest Thing We Ever Did, 1978 edition in addition to interactive portions of the book, like the Parenting Spirit Animals Quiz. 100% not scientific and yet still remarkably accurate- turns out Kimberly's spirit animal is a sea horse, like so many. Lovely Hubby does make an appearance or two, what with being the other half of her procreative process and once again all names have been changed to protect the innocent. Even if you aren't a parent, the alien analogies alone are worth a look. After all, Kimberly wasn't born, she arrived.
