Lisa Shea Library of Books

I have a wealth of experience publishing books. I have published books through a traditional publisher, through a self publisher in print, and via ebooks in all shapes and styles. I have 229 fiction stories and 114 non-fiction books, totalling 343 works in total. This page is a master listing of all items I have published. Feel free to ask me any questions about how I did a given book or how the process went. Note that I don’t count my boxed sets in this listing – that would seem to be double-dipping :).



My books are available in two forms. The paperback version is generally done via CreateSpace, Amazon’s self-publishing branch. The ebook versions are on all major platforms (Kindle, Apple, Nook, Kobo, SmashWords, GooglePlay, etc.). In both formats the books were completely free to set up and publish. The books are listed in release order. Some of the ebooks are Amazon exclusive, to have access to their promotions, while others are available on all platofrms

Cinderella Fairy Tale


The original Grimm fairy tales portrayed women of strength and conviction. Women who took action and could forge their own destinies. Over the years they have been watered down. I seek to reclaim them in these sweetly romantic – while powerfully heroic – retellings.

Psychological Horror Short Stories


I used to say that I wrote anything but horror. I realized in time that it wasn’t healthy to define myself by what I did not do. I appreciate stories that delve into the ways individuals strive to cope with emotional trauma.

Wine Books


I have two wine books – one on sangria recipes and one on Champagne cocktail recipes. These are in print copies BOTH on Lulu and on Amazon. This is because Lulu offers spiral binding but only if you buy the book through Lulu. So to have a print copy available on Amazon I had to have a perfect bound (normal binding) entry in there. Both are being revised with fresh covers and updated content.
