Cover Reveal: Guardian of the Sky Realms

So pleased to reveal the front cover for Guardian of the Sky Realms, to be released early 2020 by Meerkat Press. A wonderful cover in itself, it is also perfectly in tune with the age group it is targeted for 12 to 14 years. I suspect anyone who likes unadulterated adventure would also enjoy my novel.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the sale of my middle grade novel, Guardian of the Sky Realms, to US-based Meerkat Press, as well as  an as-yet unnamed sequel. Guardian will be published in January 2020, and the sequel in 2021.

Guardian of the Sky Realms is a reprint purchase, while the sequel will be handed over to Meerkat Press with first publishing rights. I am very confident that my babies have been placed in capable, professional hands.

Market News: Cover Reveal for Guardian of the Sky Realms

I can't tell you how happy I am. My 'all ages' novel, Guardian of the Sky Realms, is going to be published by Cohesion Press, a great independent publishing house based in Australia, and it will be released exactly the way I wanted it to. Australian English, quality editing, quality internal block and cover.

Yes, the cover. High quality and symbolically representative of many elements of the novel – the Sky Realms, the barren lands below, and the idyllic, transformed state that Maree will find herself in. It appropriately leaves bits out.

Thanks to Cohesion Press (Geoff Brown), and the amazing talent of professional digital artist, Dean Samed, who created the cover.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for the third quarter 2014 for the release of Guardian of the Sky Realms.


News: Publishing Deal with Cohesion Press

I am excited to announce that my juvenile (to adult) novel, Guardian of the Sky Realms, will be published by Cohesion Press, a relatively new Australian independent publisher. I know the outfit and they are perfect for the job – professional, transparent processes, quality production. Given this positive turn of events, the release day (and the official release) is a bit up in the air.

Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks.

Review of Guardian of the Sky Realms by Bram Stoker Award nominee, Charles Day

Charles Day, someone who I respect a great deal, has nice things to say about my debut novel (Guardian of the Sky Realms):

GUARDIANS was a pleasure to read. Truly enjoyed the imaginative world author, Gerry Huntman created in his debut novel. If you're looking for a great fantasy full of wonderful characters this is the book for you.

Cheers, Charles!
