- Jay Requard: The Night from Apex-based Peak City Publishing, Late 2011. “This new dark fantasy story takes place in Tarinthol, a world fueled by action, magic, intrigue, and dark plots.” More info: http://jayrequard.blogspot.com/
- Natania Barron: Pilgrim of the Sky from Candlemark & Gleam, Late 2011. “A novel that might be best described as mythpunk. With elements of fantasy, science fiction, Romantic poetry, steampunk, and multiverse theory, well, it isn’t exactly the sort of book that finds a comfortable little niche to sit in.” More info: http://pilgrimofthesky.com/
- JL Hilton: Stellarnet Rebel from Carina Press, early 2012. “A science fiction romantic thriller.” More info: http://jlhilton.com/stellarnet-rebel/
