But when a menacing threat descends upon both countries, devouring all living things in its wake and leaving only husks of skin behind, Lansera's young Prince Janto and his fiancée, Serra, must learn to work together with the bedeviling Vesperi, an unpredictable Meduan who may possess the only weapon that can save them—the Silver Flame.

    Recent Press

    • Elizabeth Konkel, Seattle Book Reviews (4/5 stars) – “Rebecca Gomez Farrell weaves together a brilliant fantasy adventure about love, power, and destiny.” – Full Review
    • Kirkus Reviews – “War, treachery, and star-crossed lovers abound in this high fantasy novel. . . . Farrell’s book is imaginative, filled with detailed worldbuilding, but rarely bogged down in exposition. Each of the protagonists’ stories is engaging in its own way.” – Full Review
    • Paperback Paris – “12 New Fantasy and Science Fiction Books to Pick Up This Month” – Full Article
    • Book Allure (4/5 stars) – “I enjoyed the writing of Farrell. . . . Each action was written to such precision that it felt like a well-directed movie in my head, leaving little for me to fill in. And that’s great! For a high fantasy book, the author’s ability to describe is essential and Farrell excelled at it.” – Full Review 
    • JD Dehart Reading & Literature Resources – “I would place this book on the shelf next to Anne Aguirre, Veronica Roth, Christopher Paolini, and Ally Condie.  Being a former middle grades English teacher, Wings Unseen would have been on my recommendation list and if any of those former students come knocking, I would not hesitate to tell them about Wings Unseen.” – Full Review
    • Bookwitty – “Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell is a complex book that clearly owes a debt towards A Song of Ice and Fire in its multi-POV structure. … A lot of adult fantasy books are a slow burn, particularly in the romantic arcs, but YA and this book specifically, counter that by laying out the emotional elements in a very forthright manner.” – Full Review
    • Pulp Literature – “A New Fantasy Novel from Rebecca Gomez Farrell” – Full Article

    Endorsements
    "Wings Unseen is an enthralling female-driven fantasy debut. The world, magic system, and terrific characters – with two complex, multi-layered heroines along with the male protagonist – drew me in and kept me rapt. The romantic set-up goes sideways in a delightful way, satisfying me entirely. The characters truly grow and change over the course of their epic quest, including a heroine who begins in a dark place and rises above it. An initially unlikable heroine, Vesperi is deftly handled and won a place as my favorite character. Compelling, entertaining, and enlightening, Wings Unseen is a fantastic read!"
    – Jeffe Kennedy, award-winning author of The Twelve Kingdoms series
    "With a talon-like hook, Wings Unseen will grab you and not let you go."
    – Mur Lafferty, award-winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City
    "Wings Unseen marries intrigue, unique worldbuilding, and political machination in a fast-paced story that will surely appeal to high fantasy and historical fantasy readers."
    – Jaym Gates, author of Shattered Queen
    "Wings Unseen is the fantasy I've been waiting to read for a long time. Vibrant, intense, but underscored by a weight that makes the characters jump out at you, this is not a book you will put down."
    – Jay Requard, Author of The Saga of The Panther and War Pigs
    "An intricately woven coming-of-age tale full of magic and intrigue. Wings Unseen presents a vivid world populated with a wonderful collection of characters to love and despise."
    – Dominica Phetteplace, award-winning author of "Gin Is Stronger Than Witchcraft," "Project Entropy" and others
    "An absorbing, original epic fantasy that's impossible to put down."
    – Richard Dansky, author of Shadows In Green and Firefly Rain
    "An expansive, immersive world populated by compelling characters."
    – James Maxey, author of the Bitterwood Saga and the Dragon Apocalypse Saga

    About the Author
    Rebecca Gomez Farrell

    In all but one career aptitude test Rebecca Gomez Farrell has taken, writer has been the #1 result. But when she tastes the salty air and hears the sea lions bark, she wonders if maybe sea captain was the right choice after all. Currently marooned in Oakland, CA, Becca is an associate member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Her short stories, which run the gamut of speculative fiction genres, have been published by Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Pulp Literature, and Typehouse Literary Magazine among others. Maya’s Vacation, her contemporary romance novella, is available from Clean Reads. Her next short story will appear in the Future Fire this fall, and she is thrilled that her debut novel will be published by Meerkat Press in 2017.

    Becca’s food, drink, and travel writing, which has appeared in local media in CA and NC, can primarily be found at her blog, the Gourmez. For a list of all her published work, fiction and nonfiction, check out her author website at RebeccaGomezFarrell.com.

    Folk Songs

    Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons Blog Tour & Giveaway


    With Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, award-winning author Keith Rosson delves into notions of family, grief, identity, indebtedness, loss, and hope, with the surefooted merging of literary fiction and magical realism he’s explored in previous novels. In “Dunsmuir,” a newly sober husband buys a hearse to help his wife spread her sister’s ashes, while “The Lesser Horsemen” illustrates what happens when God instructs the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to go on a team-building cruise as a way of boosting their frayed morale. In “Brad Benske and the Hand of Light,” an estranged husband seeks his wife’s whereabouts through a fortuneteller after she absconds with a cult, and in “High Tide,” a grieving man ruminates on his brother’s life as a monster terrorizes their coastal town. With grace, imagination, and a brazen gallows humor, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons merges the fantastic and the everyday, and includes a number of Rosson’s unpublished stories, as well as award-winning favorites.

    “These powerful stories will leave readers unsettled in the best ways.”

    Speculate Blog Tour & Giveaway

    From what began as a dialog between two adventurous writers curious about the shape-shifter called a prose poem comes a stunning collection that is a disruption of language—a provocation. Speculate is a hybrid of speculative poetry and flash fiction, thrumming in a pulse of jouissance and intensity that chases the impossible.

    The Road to Woop Woop Blog Tour

    Eugen Bacon’s work is deemed cheeky with a fierce intelligence in text that’s resplendent, delicious, dark and evocative. NPR called her novel Claiming T-Mo “a confounding mysterious tour de force.” The Road to Woop Woop and Other Stories imbues the same lushness in a writerly language that is Bacon’s own. This peculiar hybrid of the untraditional, the extraordinary within, without and along the borders of normalcy will hypnotize and absorb the reader with tales that refuse to be labelled. The stories in this collection are dirges that cross genres in astounding ways. Over 20 provocative tales, with seven original to this collection, by an award-winning African-Australian author.

    Complex, earnest, and striking, Bacon’s impeccable work is sure to blow readers away.
