The dragon is dead. The princess has been saved. There is but one problem: Prince Charming had nothing to do with it.

In order to save his royal reputation, Prince Charming must begrudgingly enlist the help of accidental hero William Pickett. The two set out on an adventure that has them fighting trolls, outwitting a scoundrel, and drinking the foulest ale ever, collecting bruises to both body and pride along the way. Meanwhile, the rescued princess, Gwendolyn, turns out to be one dangerously distressed damsel, and an evil presence takes over Castle White in Charming’s absence …

Tonight, for the first time in over a century, a mortal child will be kidnapped by faeries.

When her daughter Fiona is snatched from her crib, Caitlin’s entire world crumbles. Certain that faeries were only a fantasy, Caitlin must now accept that these supernatural creatures do exist-and that they have traded in their ancient swords and horses for modern guns and sports cars. Hopelessly outmatched, she accepts help from a trio of unlikely heroes: Eddy, a psychiatrist and novice wizard, Brendan, an outcast Fian warrior, and Dante, a Magister of the fae’s Rogue Court. Moving from the busy streets of Boston’s suburbs to the dark land of Tír na nÓg, Caitlin and her allies will risk everything to save Fiona. But can this disparate quartet conquer their own inner demons and outwit the dark faeries before it’s too late?

Book One of The Hollows

Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She’s also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50% of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves-the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they’ve stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

On the run with a contract on her head, Rachel reluctantly teams up with Ivy, Inderland’s best runner…and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shapechanging assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crimelord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death…not to mention her own roommate!

Fun, sassy, filled with action, humor, and romance, DEAD WITCH WALKING is the perfect read for anyone who likes vampires, paranormal fantasy, and romance.

But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you’d expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future…

Angela Mathers is obsessed with visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Released from a mental institution, she hopes her new university, West Wood Academy, will give her the chance at a normal life.

But such is not to be…. For a secret coven plots within West Wood, and demons and angels alike walk the streets of Luz, searching for the key to open Raziel’s book–a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some wish to destroy Raziel, others, like the Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, to free him. For when the Archon rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to both Heaven and Hell, and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

Voyager Impulse to Publish Digital Submission Winners

  • Posted by admin on Jun 12 2014

Great news!  We’re expanding our footprint in the digital-first publishing space with the launch of 31 Harper Voyager Impulse eBook original titles.  The books will be published starting this summer, continuing through Winter 2015, and beyond.  The novels and novellas will comprise a wide range of SFF genres and subgenres from urban fantasy and military science fiction to fairy tale remixes and horror; and from superhero fiction to epic fantasy.  These digital-first publications will be followed by short-run paperback editions, making them available everywhere eBooks are sold, as well as at bricks-and-mortar booksellers.

“It’s incredibly exciting to expand our digital-first imprint,” says Jennifer Brehl, Senior Vice President, Executive Editor, and Director of Editorial Development of William Morrow and Voyager.  “Voyager Impulse gives us the opportunity to expand our frontlist in new directions and offer a more diverse selection of imaginative fiction to readers. I for one am energized by the vast potential opened up by digital publishing.  Onward, Voyager!”

“Impulse is a chance for Voyager to establish an even more dedicated digital readership with works that should particularly appeal to that fan-base: fast-paced, action-packed, and—above all—great storytelling,” attests David Pomerico, Executive Editor of Harper Voyager. “The authors that we are launching will fit in perfectly with the vision for Voyager, while bringing unique voices to the genre. In return, they’ll have the same level of support from the marketing, publicity, and sales team as all of our titles as we look to build their audience through dedicated digital targeting as well as physical distribution.”

The vast majority of titles for the digital publishing push were acquired from our open “call” for submissions, hosted globally by Harper Voyager in 2012.  The editors received more than 4,500 submissions.

Our first U.S. acquisition from this digital call was THORN JACK by Katherine Harbour, a Florida bookseller.  The U.S. editorial director was so enthralled by this modern retelling of “Tam Lin” that it is being published in hardcover, on-sale in July 2014.

The first of our digital-first publications is THE STOLEN by Bishop O’Connell (o/s 7/22/14), a compelling urban fantasy with a strong female protagonist.  It will be quickly followed by GLORY MAIN by Henry V. O’Neil (o/s 7/29/14), military science fiction set in space; and THE GOD HUNTER by Tim Lees (o/s 8/5/14), a humor-laced paranormal thriller.

 

Other forthcoming Harper Voyager eBook originals include:

  • THE CHARMING TALES by Jack Heckel – fairytale/comedic fantasy
  • DEMON by Erik Williams – supernatural thriller/horror
  • SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS by Lexie Dunne – urban fantasy
  • ON STONEHILL DOWNS by Sarah Remy – epic fantasy
  • THE DROWNING GOD by James Kendley – paranormal mystery/horror
  • THE SAND SIFTERS by Kelley Grant – epic fantasy

The editorial team is also excited to see two special additions to Harper Voyager’s digital publishing program, including a new epic fantasy by Auston Habershaw (THE OLDEST TRICK), who just won the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.  Also, Jocelynn Drake continues her popular Asylum Tales series with three new urban fantasy tales: DEMON’S FURY, DEMON’S VOW, and INNER DEMON.

More titles will be released digitally every month.  Pomerico is excited by the opportunities that lie ahead for the imprint: “One of the exciting opportunities for authors who publish through Impulse is our ability to provide the same suite of services any Voyager title would receive, and a speedy production process, meaning readers will be able to have the books on their devices not long after we announce them.”
