            A second book in a series of three and a historical novel, all set in Colorado, are new from Raspberry Creek Books, Ltd.

            Authors Kym O’Connell-Todd and Mark Todd have released two books in the Silverville Saga series and a third is planned for release later this year. In addition, Larry K. Meredith’s “This Cursed Valley” has been re-issued in a special 10th Anniversary Edition.

            The Silverville Saga series began several years ago with the publication of “The Silverville Swindle,” a fun, quirky science fiction novel set in a small Colorado mountain town that many readers see as their own community.  It has now been re-issued, with updates, as “Little Greed Men” and has been joined by book two in the series, “All Plucked Up.”  A third book, “The Magicke Outhouse,” will appear soon.

            “This Cursed Valley” is set in the central Colorado Rockies and recounts the history (in novel form) of the area from Aspen to Glenwood Springs to Marble with particular interest on the Redstone area.  The new version includes some previously unpublished material and an introduction by Anne Hillerman, daughter of famed southwestern novelist Tony Hillerman.

            All books are available from the publisher, Ingram Book Group, Amazon.com (print and e-books for Kindle), Barnes & Noble online, the authors and in many local and area bookstores.

            “Little Greed Men” was nominated for a Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Fiction Award and as a recommended reading title at the Library of Congress by the Washington Center for the Book.

            “All Plucked Up” was nominated for a Colorado Book Award in 2013.    

            “This Cursed Valley” was a finalist for a Spur Award from the Western Writers of America.
