Publisher pitch: Escape Publishing, Nov 2013

28 October 2013

Escape logoNovember is a big, big month for us here at Escape—a year ago, we opened our digital doors and published our first titles. Now, a year later, we’ve got 70+ Escape Artists, more than 100 titles, and modest plans for world domination. Thanks so much to everyone who has checked us out, read our stories, commented on our blog, sent us tweets, posted a review, or generally let us know how excited you were about all the new opportunities for authors and readers in Australia.

To celebrate, we’re going to give away one copy of each of our 10 anniversary month titles—10 books to random commenters, so you can celebrate with us. Just comment below, and we’ll draw the lucky winners. The giveaway closes on 11 November 2013. Good luck! (UPDATE: the winners have now been drawn. Congratulations to Deb K, Sonya F, ZjaNoir, jbiggar2013, Lyn W, Satima F, Tien, Helen S, Louisa M and Eleni K.)

Here are our November titles …

Awakening by Lara Morgan. A beautifully written, rich, lush, romantic, adventure fantasy novel about an orphan girl, a disintegrating pact, and a young desert boy—and dragons. Perfect for readers missing Game of Thrones, who love their fantasy with romance overtones—and also dragons.

A Warlord’s Lady by Nicola E Sheridan. An alluring, hot, exotic, jungle-fantasy (can’t very well call it urban fantasy!) novel about a powerful warlord, the woman he takes captive, and the best-selling, tell-all autobiography that she writes about the experience. Perfect for readers who like their heroes hot, their heroines strong, their settings steamy, and their syndromes vaguely Stockholm.

Lace and Lead by MA Grant. A startling original, polished, action-packed, futuristic-SF about a sheltered society daughter, a rough mercenary, and the devastating lies they both believe. Perfect for readers looking for something brand new.

Tearing the Shroud by JM Bray. A new adult fantasy novel with a retro twist about one guy heading off to college, one guy tasked with saving his world, their band of rag-tag, role-playing friends, and the women they love. Perfect for readers who have been looking for something different, and never knew they wanted to read a novel about role-players set in 1984.

Mango Kisses by Elisabeth Rose. A sweet, summery, beach-side romance about an ambitious, workaholic accountant, a laid-back, surf-shop owner, a host of small town characters, and a Kissing College. Perfect for the reader who loves romances about finding yourself, sea changes, and with a community feel and strong secondary characters.

Dancing on Air by Nicole Hurley-Moore. Cinderella meets Swan Lake in a cross-class, Victorian novel about a ballet dancer, an aristocrat, and the space in between them. Perfect for readers who like their historicals with a difference and a rags-to-riches twist.

Almost Mine by Lea Darragh. An emotional, moving novel about a man who knows what he wants, a woman who thinks she settled, and the truth that neither of them can see. Perfect for readers who love their reading with a box of tissues nearby.

Love, in Writing by Elsa Winckler. Our first South African author brings us a beachy, book-ish, beautiful romance set on the South African coast about a tender-hearted romance novelist, a hardcore Science Fiction writer and a clash of genre proportions. Perfect for the reader who loves opposites-attract romances with a fresh, fun setting.

Impossible Desires by Tamsin Baker. An erotic romp of a novella about a man who can’t ask for what he wants, and a woman who knows just what he needs. Perfect for readers who like their historicals hot and their heroes submissive.

Mistaken Identity by Alyssa J Montgomery. An irresistible beach novel about a Greek tycoon, identical twins, and the sensual, sexy, Greek seaside. Perfect for readers who love their novels indulgent, entertaining, intense, with a vintage feel.

You can let us know what you think here: FacebookTwitter and on our website.

Until next month,
