May 16: Upcoming Release Fall 2019


We are glad to announce our signing of author Lauren Sergeant for the publication of her debut novel, Light of Distant Suns. Lauren never expected to be a writer. She never expected a lot of things that are now true, though. Somehow, composing poetry, blogging, and studying to earn her bachelor’s degree in International Studies. When she is not writing, you can find her curled up on the couch with a good book, whether it be fantasy, history, physics, or Calculus. She lives in Alabama with her husband and son, though she grew up in Southern California and never imagined calling the American South home. It seems the unanticipated things in life are sometimes the most delightful.

We are thrilled to announce that author Don Newton has joined us for the release of his next novel False Gods.

Don Newton is a writer and armchair philosopher, author of the science fantasy trilogy “The Prophet”, and short stories too numerous to count. Don has been in love with science fiction and fantasy his entire life. The first alternate world he created was the result of a sixth-grade essay assignment, and he’s been hooked ever since. That world has grown and transformed into an entire multi-verse of possibilities to explore. Don’s not just a writer though, he has hobbies too: like making up funnier lyrics to popular songs. He sings them to himself when no one’s around—especially in the car.

Having lived in nine different states and two foreign countries, he now calls the desert southwest home.

May 1: Upcoming Release Fall 2019


We are glad to announce that author Douglas A. L. Smith has brought his debut novel, Castle of Fountains into our fold! Inspired by his kids and his enjoyment of great fantasy novels, Smith moved from poetry and songwriting to completing Castle of Fountains, which is the first in his planned Tale series. Currently, he calls California home, but that may change as he pursues training for a job with the U.S. government.   

We look forward to joining Douglas on this journey, and hope you’ll come along for the ride! 

April 29: Upcoming Release Summer 2019

We are  excited to announce our signing of author Jamey Caruthers for the Summer 2019 release of his debut novel SNARDLER.

Jamey is a husband, dad, and attorney from Texas who developed a passion for writing as a child. He believes kids can change the world and his legal work reflects his desire to ensure bright futures for all of them. When he’s not busy being a very serious author and lawyer, you’ll probably find him devising snardles of his own. We’re proud to have Jamey on our team and hope you’ll jump at the chance to become a SNARDLER too!
