If you've been following us at all in the last few weeks, you know that we've been prepping Michael Blake's masterpiece of historical fiction, Dances With Wolves for ebook publication.

We are so excited to be introducing this brilliant work to a new generation of readers, and have every hope that it will again receive the accolades and honor it deserves. Now with a new preface by the author, readers will learn the inspiring story behind the novel's creation. We cannot offer enough thanks to Michael Blake for his generosity in sharing his work with us, and look forward to bringing you many more works by this incredible author.
Our surprise release this week is a personal favorite. ZOVA Books welcomes Jenny Bellington's debut novel and the first in her Mapmaker series. East to Adonia (Kindle edition here) is a rip-roaring children's fantasy novel following the adventures of 12-year-old mapmaking genius, Mercator Robinson, as he finds himself dropped onto the fantastical island of Adonia. Our young hero must face the magic and mystery of this new world while trying to find a way home again - and to survive until he can. This is a book for brave children and grown-ups alike. With brilliant illustrations from Jenny and Trish Bellington, this is a perfect book for both reading aloud or curling up in a quiet corner. We are so excited to launch this, our first children's book, as a testament to the power of imagination and creativity. Thank you, Jenny.
On a very different note, our February release is gearing up for a big splash. If you enjoy a good shiver, a quaking in the boots, this one's for you. Mike Sirota returns to fiction with this paranormal thriller - Fire Dance. Recounting the mysterious haunting of a desert ruin, the novel explores the mind of a murderous spirit and the intrepid young woman who will do anything to stop it from killing again. Fire Dance is Sirota's first novel after a 20 year hiatus from his writing career. We look forward to rediscovering his past publications and unearthing yet-to-be-published manuscripts from his writing desk. Thank you, Mike. We are eager for your release.
