November Publisher’s Update
Good Morning, Parvus People!
To those of you who’ve chosen to sacrifice your sanity for the month, best of luck with NaNoWriMo. Grind away and don’t forget that December is FiYoShiMo (Finish Your Shit Month) over at the blog of our Managing Editor, John Adamus. John runs a series of blog posts aimed at helping you keep in mind that dumping words onto the page is awesome, but you still need to spend some time editing before they become a book. Check it out at: www.writernextdoor.com.
I’m here today to toot our own horn a little bit. VICK’S VULTURES by the incredibly talented Scott Warren was released on October 4, so our first month of sales is behind us and I couldn’t be more proud of how the book is selling. Scott’s written a terrific book and we’re all glad it’s finding the audience it deserves. Thank you to all of the readers who’ve picked up the book and especially to those who’ve taken the time to review it on Amazon, Good Reads, Audible, and elsewhere. Double special thank you to all those who are recommending VICK’S VULTURES to your friends. We love all of our readers equally but we love you recommenders most equally.
The cover art to VICK’S VULTURES has been getting a lot of attention, and we understand why; it’s gorgeous. The artist, for those interested, is Tom Edwards. Tom’s an independent cover artist from the UK and if you’re publishing SciFi, you should be looking at his art: http://www.tomedwardsdesign.com
Editing is under way on our second novel, COURT OF TWILIGHT by Mareth Griffith. If contemporary fantasy is your thing, you’re going to love this contemporary fantasy set in a hidden-world Dublin. Lovely Creatures Studio (http://lovelycreaturesstudio.com) has put together a beautiful cover for us and we wish we didn’t have to wait to show it to you, but we do. Look for a cover art reveal this winter as we get closer to a release date.
We are still open for submissions! Parvus intended a cautious start with three acquisitions in 2016 and we are looking to expand our catalog by picking up the rights to five or six new novels in 2017. If you’ve written a great bit of speculative fiction, we want to buy it! See our submission guidelines at: http://www.parvuspress.com/submissions
Thanks for being a Parvus reader,
P.S. I MAY have a few Audible download codes to giveaway for VICK’S VULTURES if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, ask nicely, and promise to give a rating after you’re done.
