Luckily, the wait won’t be long as The Sisters Mederos by Patrice Sarath hits shelves this April. And now we’ve an excellent cover to show off – as well as an exclusive excerpt of the prologue and first chapter – over on the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog.

The Open Door… has closed once more

The Open Door 2017 has now closed. Thank you, thank you to everyone who submitted their proposals over the last two months. A last-day flurry, notably amongst folks for whom GMT is something of an alien concept, meant that we decided to keep the way open for a few more hours. Well done to anyone who was able to sneak in under the metal shutters just before they rattled down.

Total submissions this year: 1046 full novels

We’ve already started reading, but of course be patient with the Robots as we work down the pile to yours. If you need

Cover Reveal + First Chapter: Queen of the Struggle

Nik Korpon’s The Rebellion’s Last Traitor is “an explosive tale of betrayal and revenge in which allegiances prove as dangerous and unreliable as the memories the citizens of Eitan City buy and sell. Korpon crosses genre lines with ease, and imbues this post-apocalyptic tale with the rhythm and immediacy of crime fiction.” (Chris Holm, Anthony Award-winning author of Red Right Hand and The Killing Kind.)

Since the first one was brilliant, we are even more excited to reveal the cover of Korpon’s dystopian SF sequel, Queen of the Struggle, which follows the fate of Eitan City and the further challenges Henraek faces.
