Two Fantasy Novels Coming in 2017

Published by:

We are super excited to announce that we’ve recently signed two wonderful fantasy novels, both of which will be published in 2017.

The first is an urban fantasy, The Year of the Knife, by G D Penman. Sully is an agent of the British Empire who is not afraid to use her magic skills to crack a case. But she may need more than that to track a serial killer across New Amsterdam and the American colonies, since the killer is controlling its victims’ bodies with a powerful magic of its own.

The second is an epic fantasy by Rebecca Gomez Farrell, titled Wings Unseen. The Meduan and Lanserim ways of life are as compatible as oil and water. But when an invisible threat consumes both countries, leaving husks of human skin in its wake, Lansera’s Prince Janto and his fiancé, Serra, must learn to work together with Vesperi, a Meduan who possesses the only weapon that can save them.

ABOUT G D PENMAN

gdpenmanG D Penman writes Speculative Fiction. He lives in Scotland with his partner and children, some of whom are human. He is a firm believer in the axiom that any story is made better by dragons. His beard has won an award. If you have ever read a story with Kaiju and queer people, it was probably one of his. In those few precious moments that he isn’t parenting or writing he likes to watch cartoons, play video and tabletop games, read more books than are entirely feasible and continue his quest to eat the flesh of every living species.
