About Bast Books

We’re a digital publisher working closely with Lisa Mason, with her backlist, and with her exciting new books and series.

New, New, New! As of 2017, we are able to bring all of Lisa Mason's backlist back into print! New funding made this possible.

Here's our first print book: One Day in the Live of Alexa by Lisa Mason. How long do you want to live? Find out in this moving, powerful short novel. Also available as a Kindle Select title, but only until August 11. After which, the ebook will be available worldwide.

And here's our second print book: Summer of Love! We are so excited and proud to reissue this beautiful trade paperback of Lisa Mason's classic tale of time travel, the 1960s, and the far future.

We’re also proud to ride the exciting new ebook revolution and to bring Lisa Mason's previously published titles and newly published titles to a new audience. Since January 2010, ebook sales have expanded by 200 percent, whereas bookstore sales have declined by 4 percent.

Don’t get us wrong—we love brick-and-mortar bookstores. Some of our staff have worked many years in bookstores. And we love hold-in-your-hand print books. We collect print books—20,000 of them. A beautifully published book with great characters, a moving story, and a fabulous cover is a work of art.

But the new ereaders are taking the pleasures of book reading to a new high-tech level. People who read books and newspapers when they commute to work, travel for business, go on vacation, or simply go out to a café are quickly finding ereaders indispensable.

In the Dark Ages (before 2012), before the ereaders offered color, we asked Tom Robinson, our cover artist and a renowned San Francisco artist and jeweler, to create covers for Lisa’s two time travels that would look good in black and white on an ereader.

Since the retailers now will paste our color covers into your ebook, these black-and-white covers have become history in the world of ebooks—something rare!

Here, exclusively, is the special black-and-white cover for Summer of Love, A Time Travel.

You can really see that Milky Way!

And here is the special black-and-white cover for The Gilded Age, A Time Travel.

We love how Tom continued the star theme in the letters. This was designed to look like an 1890s billboard.

We hope you enjoy the selections below!
