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 “Galaxy on Fire” trilogy by Joseph Kassabian. The first book in the trilogy, “Citizen of Earth,” was acquired in 2018 and published in 2019. 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.

“Falling Light” by Crystal L. Kirkham. This fantasy romance novel is scheduled for publication in 2021. Crystal L. Kirkham is the author of “Feathers and Fae” and several other works.

“Endgame” by Aisha Tritle is a science fiction novelette scheduled for publication on February 14, 2020. Kyanite Publishing LLC will also publish Tritle’s science fiction novel “Life2” in 2020.

“Ales, Agents, and Alchemy” by Jabe Stafford is a fantasy thriller scheduled to be published in 2021. It is the first book in the series. Jabe Stafford has also contributed to the “Kyanite Press: Journal of Speculative Fiction.”

“The Dark Corners of Eschos” by Chad D. Christy is a cosmic horror novella set in the same world as his forthcoming novel “Through the Blind,” both of which will be published in 2020, along with a science fiction novelette titled “Worlds.”

“Dead Town” by Anthony D. Redden. The second book in the “Dead Trilogy”, set for publication in 2020.

Kyanite Glass Goes Paperback

Based on feedback from readers and retailers, we’ve decided to make all our formerly eBook-only titles, like Night Shift by B.K. Bass, Dead Boat by Anthony Redden, What They Deserve by Sam Hendricks, and Inn Spirits: Tales of the Folsom by C.M. Harris available in paperback!

All four of these titles will be available in paperback May 31st, 2019! You can pre-order them now through our website, or wait for them to become available closer to their release date on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

We’re so excited to expand the formats these stories are available in so they can reach more readers! Going forward, all the novellas we option will be released in paperback as well.
