We are so excited to welcome back Alane Adams, award-winning author of the Legends of Orkney series. Her second book in the thrilling middle grade saga, Kalifus Rising (SparkPress, September 6, 2016), is sure to keep Sam fans on edge. This back-to-school read will have kids wishing for just one more week of summer.


Who could forget Colleen Oakes? She is one of SparkPress’ first authors and the raging success of her bestselling, award-winning debut series Queen of Hearts still has us trapped in Wonderland. This queen of fairy tale retellings is in a different land now though. In the second installment of her Wendy Darling series, readers continue to take a deeper and darker dive into Neverland. Get ready for Seas (SparkPress, September 20, 2016), a can’t-miss exploration of Peter Pan.

We are thrilled to welcome back St. Martin’s Press; working with this publisher again delights us to the core and we’ve got not one but two fabulous and chilling books for Fall. B. A. Paris weaves a haunting tale of a picture-perfect marriage with a dark side in Behind Closed Doors (St. Martin’s Press, Aug. 9, 2016). Debut author Stephanie Gangi brings us her debut book The Next (St. Martin’s Press, October 18, 2016). This modern-day ghost story is sure to make our skin tingle when October rolls around and Halloween looms.


And finally, a big welcome back to BLINK YA. We love bringing these stories to the world. We’re delighted to share bestselling author Lorie Langdon’s latest YA novel, Gilt Hollow (BLINK YA, Sept. 27, 2016). Willow Lamott meets Ashton – fresh out of juvie and fueled by rage – and is instantly drawn into his dark world. But as they uncover more of the secrets of their small town, he may not be the only danger she faces.



We are thrilled to announce that SparkPoint Studio will be working with Bloguettes, an unbelievably stylish and smart group of women who teach today’s modern entrepreneurs how to navigate marketing, social media and so much more. With webinars, workshops and an awe-inspiring new stock photo platform, we will be helping these wildly popular experts reach an even larger audience of women.


Welcome to M.L. Stover, author of Provectus (She Writes Press, October 4, 2016), a science-based thriller bound to entice anyone who is into action and a little bit of conspiracy. With Stover’s Master’s in Anthropology and certification in forensic identification, we know readers will be educated and enthralled by her thrilling new novel.


Roll out the welcome mat for Meg Little Reilly! As President Obama’s former deputy communications director for the White House Office of Management and Budget, and previous to that, spokesperson at the US Department of Treasury, Reilly has one diverse background. And now, she is releasing her first novel, We Are Unprepared (MIRA, August 30, 2016). Her debut is a beautiful story of a couple facing a super storm, the trials of humanity in the wake of this threat, and the challenges imposed on their marriage as they try to survive.


Break out the welcome sparklers for Jackie Middleton! She is the debut author of London Belongs to Me (Kirkwall Books, October 14, 2016) and an award-winning freelance writer. Her first novel is certainly one to read with a cup of tea as you venture to London and through the heart and mind of a delightful character looking for herself in a new city.

Amie-BorstA big (haunting) welcome to Amie Borst, a quirky middle grade author of spooky fairy tale retellings. Her books Cinderskella and Little Dead Riding Hood were definite spine-tinglers as well as being award-nominated. Soon, young readers will be able to get their hands on her next Halloween hit, Snow Fright (Jolly Fish Press, October 4, 2016), written along with her daughter.
