“Dr. Sally’s Voodoo Man,” authored by Monmouth College English professor Mary Hanford Bruce, will be reprinted under the Integra Press Imprint, according to MarJim Books spokesman Jim Dobkins.

This print edition of “Dr. Sally’s Voodoo Man” is expected to be available for purchase at www.marjimbooks.co in mid-November. In addition, “Dr. Sally’s Voodoo Man,” as well as Bruce’s book of poems, “Holding to the Light,” will be released under the UCS PRESS imprint as e-book editions. They will be sold by leading digital booksellers and in the UCS PRESS e-book gallery that will debut in late November at www.marjimbooks.com.

“Due to the positive reception of Dr. Bruce’s brilliant first novel, more books are planned featuring Dr. Sally’s adventures, including ‘Dr. Sally’s Mossad Man,’” Dobkins said.

Bruce draws from her travels to many countries and her two years as a Fulbright Scholar in Cameroon to give her writings authenticity. An award-winning poet, she is known for her memorable word portraits:

“She couldn’t tell if it were the wine or a memory, but she felt heavy, like air before a storm,” and “Her head throbbed at the back of her skull, further back than she dreamed a mind went.”

Integra Press and UCS PRESS are imprints of MarJim Books.
