Zumaya Artist and Authors News – Apr 2014

NEWS

ZP cover artist Charles Bernard just recently completed the following cover for one of his other clients. The cover is for a science fiction story about an emperor, love, power, betrayal and murder and this cover is Charles’s latest art cover for the series.

 

 

 

 

For even more fun, Charles made a video showing his entire process – from the original email contact letter from a publisher to the delivery of the finished product. And he even reads (well, has the computer read to him) the book! Which is an awesome way to get the artist’s creativity flowing.
To see/hear his journey click the link The Creative Process for Painting Book Cover Illustrations or watch it below.

APPEARANCES

Rie Sheridan Rose will be attending the Austin International Poetry Festival April 3-6 and will also be doing several readings there.

From Zumaya Boundless – Ebenezer

Ebenezer

by JoSelle Vanderhooft

 

 

It’s Christmas Eve in the city that never sleeps, but Ebenezer doesn’t feel like celebrating. Her girlfriend of ten years has just left her, her job as a debt collector is slowly killing her, and worst of all, she hasn’t truly acted in years.

 

But when three spirits representing the places and ambitions closest to her heart pay her a visit, Ebenezer just might find a reason to end her life—or a reason to keep going.

 

Set during the global recession, this retelling of Charles Dickens’s immortal classic A Christmas Carol explores the vagaries of growing up and exchanging old dreams for new meaning.

 

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon as well as in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

From Zumaya Other – The Marriage of Mushrooms and Garlic

The Marriage of Mushrooms and Garlic

by Chester Aaron and Malcolm Clark

Photos by Roger Adams

Mushrooms and garlic go together like a horse and carriage, so The Marriage of Mushrooms and Garlic is a perfect title for this superb collection of essays and recipes from two of the world’s leading experts.

What Chester Aaron and Malcolm Clark don’t know about garlic and mushrooms respectively likely doesn’t matter, anyway. With the help of skilled chefs Suzanne Adams and Pic Sangsana, and filled with the fabulous photographic art of Roger Adams, they have produced a small book worth its weight in delicious information.

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

From Zumaya Thresholds – The Talisman of Zandria

The Talisman of Zandria

by Christine Norris

The Talisman of Zandria

 

 

Adventure happens when you least expect it

Ivy Peterson is Less-Than-Ordinary. She’s so very Less-than-Ordinary that sometimes she feels invisible. She is also Not Very Brave.

But part of her wishes she could be something More, that something Extraordinary and Completely Unusual would happen. What she forgets about wishes is that they do sometimes come true.

Ivy accidentally falls into Zandria, a magical world that exists just outside her own. And she’s trapped there because someone has stolen the Talisman of Zandria, a magical amulet that controls the five gates the worlds. She and her new friends—the wizard Arden, his young apprentice Connor, and a pair of fairies—set off on a quest to recover the Talisman, a journey of discovery that will change Ivy in ways she never could have imagined.

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon as well as in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

ISBN:    9781612712215

Also available in ePub, Mobi, and PDF at the ZP eBookstore.

From Zumaya Enigma – Death on the Run

Death on the Run

by Joan Blacher

Death on the Run

The past is present

An Ardis Jensen Mystery

A young woman is killed by a hit-and-run driver, and when Ardis learns she knew the victim neither her heavy workload nor her husband’s disapproval keeps her from agreeing to help with the investigation.

The more she and Detective Larry Hopkins learn, however, the less they know; and when the man Ardis considers the prime suspect also ends up dead, the mystery just gets murkier.

Who was the mystery man Lori had known who suddenly appeared in her life again? The answer is not only surprising but deadly.
