Say Hello to Our New Acquisitions!

In fall 2019, we invited authors to submit their speculative fiction manuscripts with or without representation. The acquisitions committee reviewed those manuscripts and made final recommendations, resulting in a wave of offers. True to our mission, most offers were made to authors already published with us, including A.R. Vagnetti, Michael D. Nadeau, Jonathan Lazar, Joseph Kassabian, Crystal L. Kirkham, Aisha Tritle, and Chad D. Christy.

FULL LIST OF NEW ACQUISITIONS

The “Storm” series by A.R. Vagnetti. The first book in the series, “Forgotten Storm,” was acquired in 2018 and published in 2019. Described as “steamier than expected” with “amazing worldbuilding,” the series will continue with “Forbidden Storm,” scheduled for publication in summer 2020.

“The Lythinall Saga” by Michael D. Nadeau. The first book, “The Darkness Returns,” was acquired in 2018 and published in 2019. Endorsed by Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms, this epic fantasy series has won fans internationally. The second book in the saga, “The Darkness Within,” is scheduled for publication in summer 2020.

The “Case Files of Zachariah Lars” series by Jonathan Lazar. The first book in the series, “Zachariah Lars and the High Elf Mystery,” was acquired in 2018 and published in 2019. Future plans for the fantasy detective include both novellas and novels. The next installment, “Zachariah Lars and the Time Travel Conundrum,” is scheduled for publication in fall 2020.

The second book in the trilogy, “The Great Traitor,” is scheduled for publication in summer 2020. Robyn Bennis, author of the Signal Airship series, said: “Half Old Man’s War and half Matterhorn, Citizen of Earth is a twisty, turny adventure filled with sass and action.” Kassabian is known for his sharp humor and war commentary.

Cover Reveal – Life2 by Aisha Tritle

We are so excited to reveal the Life2 cover! This awesome science fiction story by Aisha Tritle is a thrill ride with deep themes and amazing characters.

Astrid was brought back six months ago for one purpose: to help restore balance in the city.

Cursed with a past she can barely remember, Astrid fills her role as an assassin with ease. Every day, she kills Unworthies – those deemed unfit to be a part of the society so carefully constructed after the Infirmum swept through the earth a hundred years ago, leaving all of the children dead and all of the adults infertile.  

Humanity now relies on a weekly injection of Curat to survive. Everyone is young, beautiful, and almost immortal – including the enigmatic doctor who renewed her, Michael.   

As the city is pushed into a new ice age, Astrid realizes she knows dangerously little about the place she lives and the people she kills for. Her trigger finger begins to fail her, and she fears she might be labeled as Unworthy next. When Michael draws her into a rebellion, secrets begin to come out, and the worst one might belong to the past she forgot. As she starts to remember and Michael tells her the true reason he’s been able to survive for so long, Astrid finds out she won’t just have to save the city, she will also have to decide what it truly means to be human.
