BIG NEWS, EVERYONE!

Unrelenting, the first book in our co-written contemporary fantasy series, will be published by Not a Pipe Publishing in Spring 2022! The book will be available through all major booksellers, and you can bet we’ll let you know how to pre-order it as soon as we have the details.

Follow Bridget, a determined young woman, on her desperate search for Dahlia, her missing sister. When she discovers the disappearance is linked to a hidden, magical society, Bridget must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to find Dahlia.

It’s been a journey, y’all.

The concept for Unrelenting began in 2013 with a collaboratively-written role play. Honestly, it was little more than a character study.

The idea really stuck with us, so in 2015, we started drafting that role play into a novel.

That draft sucked.

So then we wrote another draft. We refined the ideas, the characters, the plot. (Can you tell we’re discovery writers?)

By 2018, we hammered out the third draft, and it bore a striking resemblance to the novel YOU, dear reader, will get to hold in your hands (or on your e-reader, if you prefer) in 2022. But there was still plenty of refining to do, especially as we dove into beta reader feedback.

Once the manuscript was polished in 2019, we were ready to query agents. We got some great feedback from industry pros, but it wasn’t until Unrelenting was selected as a finalist for the 2020 Book Pipeline Unpublished Contest that the floodgates opened.

Pipeline Media introduced us to many agents and independent traditional publishers. It was a dream come true… never more so than when we were connected with Benjamin and Viveca of Not a Pipe Publishing.

We’re excited to be joining the Not a Pipe Publishing family.

From the first conversation with Benjamin and Viveca, we felt a complete alignment of values, beliefs about publishing, and excitement about the trajectory for the book. In every conversation since, we’ve had our initial impressions confirmed.

Not a Pipe treats their authors with care, and they’re passionate about the books they choose to publish. We couldn’t be happier for Unrelenting to find a home with them. We encourage you to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to learn about all their wonderful authors! If you’re a fan of speculative fiction (and more), you won’t be disappointed.

We’d love to keep you up-to-date on Unrelenting news and announcements, so we encourage you to join our mailing list.

Thank you for all of your support. We can’t wait to share this labor of love with you in 2022!
