Attention Book Clubs!

If you are in a book club and are considering selecting our first title (or any future titles) as you book club selection please let us know. If you order your copies directly from us we will offer you a substantial discount and a group shipping rate. In addition, if you are a book club located in the Chicagoland area, author Ben Tanzer is willing to come and speak to your group.

So, if you are making your selections for the year, or just the next month, we would love for you to consider Orange Alert Press.

Baby Got Books

We've just been mentioned on Baby Got Books:

Ben Tanzer is a funny guy, but Most Likely is a mostly serious look at modern-day relationships, romantic and familial. The title is taken from a Bob Dylan song, and pop culture references are sprinkled liberally throughout. When dispensing relationship advice, one character speaks in a Yoda inspired sentence structure. It’s a sweet look at life in the big city.

Check it out here!

The cleaver cats at Everyday Yeah have posted a little bit of creative nonsense about our book. Check it out and fill in the blanks. We've also been told that a full review may follow at some point.

This week we also sent review copies to Wonka Vision and Stop Smiling. We would like to thank both fine and remarkable publications in advance for their support and what we are sure will be glowing reviews.
