Just past the halfway point of 2014, our authors are beginning to receive recognition for their newest releases! Myke Cole‘s BREACH ZONE has been listed on “Best Books From The First Half of 2014” by The Founding Fields, “Provisional Speculative Fiction Top 5 of 2014” by Pat’s Fantasy Hot List and “Books I Enjoyed Most Thus Far in 2014” by Rob’s Blog o’ Stuff. This final installment in the Shadow Ops trilogy has certainly lived up to the predictions of Buzzfeed and Best Fantasy Books, who had named it a top anticipated book for 2014.
Several other JABberwocky authors are receiving recognition as well! Amazon listed Brandon Sanderson‘s WORDS OF RADIANCE, Marie Brennan‘s TROPIC OF SERPENTS, and Jon Sprunk‘s BLOOD AND IRON as “Best Books of the Year So Far 2014: Science Fiction & Fantasy.” TROPIC OF SERPENTS and BLOOD AND IRON were also selected for Dolce & Gabanna’s Swide Magazine‘s “Summer Reading List: Top 10 Fantasy Books,” along with Charlaine Harris’s new #12 New York Times bestseller, MIDNIGHT CROSSROAD.
Even more exciting news: one of our newest clients, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, has been nominated for Canada’s Sunburst Award in the adult fiction category! Her short story collection, This Strange Way of Dying, is in good company on the shortlist alongside Ruth Ozeki’s Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel, A Tale for the Time Being. The winners will be announced in the fall.
With all of this recognition coming in at the halfway point of 2014, we can’t wait to see what the end of the year will bring!
