September News 2012

Kia Ora, everyone!

A busy July meant that August was quiet on the book front here at Splashdown, but there's all the more going on now! First up, our new release:

Seeking Unseen by Kat Heckenbach
The anticipated sequel to Finding Angel is here!

It may be Angel's wish...but it's Melinda's journey. It's been two years since Angel learned the magic chip of wood inside her locket would grant any wish. What is taking her so long to choose? An alarming discovery about her beloved foster brother Zack makes the decision easy...but everything else gets complicated after she runs into her old friend Melinda, who demands to go along for the return to Toch Island. 

Melinda doesn't fit in with the magical freaks any more than she did with the losers back in Florida, but she never wanted to belong before. A secret world surrounds her where even the bugs have magic... She's more of an outsider than ever. So when ex-con Doran Ashe slinks out of the shadows and offers her an easy road to powers of her own, Melinda follows him despite-or maybe because of-everyone's warnings. 

Grab it now - a fantasy treat for young adult readers!

Seeking Unseen on Kindle - $6.99

Three Splashdown titles available through Kindle Select

That's tomorrow, folks! So get over there and grab 'em while they're hot!

Splashdown's First Blog Tours

The first Splashdown Books Blog Tour roared through July with satisfying results. What? You missed it? Go here to start your trip through multi-dimensional space with Greg Mitchell, author of Rift Jump, as he showcases his debut novel.

The next tour featured Faith Awakened, the first novel of our own Space Kiwi Grace Bridges. Here's the central hub to find the interviews, excerpts and videos of this tour. 

Avenir is coming!

Later this month, as promised, Avenir Eclectia Volume 1 arrives with all the intensity you could want from micro-fiction in book form. We'll be sending out a short special announcement when this becomes available around mid-September. In the meantime, keep up with story developments at

Arrival in Ten, Nine, Eight...

Grace has crossed the pond. Eager fans, writers and groupies have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Irish Kiwi with a German Twist on her whirlwind 20 States Tour. We'll keep you posted as this world traveler travels our world for far too short a time. The tour plan is here and the photo albums are here (Canada) and here (Eastern states so far)

That's it for now. Never fear. We'll keep you up to date on breaking Splashdown news. In the meanwhile, sit back and enjoy a good book. We have plenty!

Faith Awakened blog tour central

Hang on, I hear you say. That's an OLD book!
It sure is. Five years old. But the Splashdown Blog Tour is a brand new idea, so we'll be touring our older titles in between new releases.
