Kia Ora! Welcome to the February newsletter from Splashdown Books. Boy, have we got a lot of news for you this month! I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
I’m very happy to announce that Splashdown has added three more authors to the team in the last month!
R.L. Copple writes classic fantasy in the tradition of Tolkien and Lewis. Follow the journeys of a ring with healing powers, and the courageous travellers called to wear it.
We’ll be re-releasing two of Rick’s previously published titles in the Reality series: Reality’s Dawn (expanded version of the novella Infinite Realities) and Reality’s Ascent (formerly Transforming Realities). A third book, never before released—Reality's Glory—will be published at a later date.
Travis Perry and co-author Mike Lynch have created a wonderful romp through the genres we all love in The Crystal Portal, where a time-travelling warrior elf together with a robot from the future and a boy from 1st-century Nazareth fight an evil warlord in an alternate world.
Look for Reality’s Dawn to release in March, The Crystal Portal in April, and Reality’s Ascent in May. In June we’ve got another surprise coming...
Splashdown has located a number of fresh new manuscripts that fall on the darker side of speculative fiction. So we’ve decided to give them an imprint all their own: Splashdown Darkwater, the world’s only imprint created solely for supernatural and paranormal tales with a Christian worldview.
We have already signed at least one author and novel for this imprint—but I can’t tell you about that just yet! Watch this space!
Splashdown Darkwater...Dare to go deeper. Launching in June.
I recently enjoyed an hour’s discussion with the guys at Flying Island Press, on publishing and many related topics. Have a listen at http://bit.ly/gJTj34.
Pre-orders are now available for Reality’s Dawn. Come on over and make sure you get in on the first opportunity!
Take care...and thank you for coming along for the ride!
