NYT Best Selling Author Presents David Farland Discovery Program for New Writers
by BWW News Desk - Mar 21, 2016

WordFire Press will release 'The Feather and the Moon Well,' a debut novel by Shean Pao, as the first novel in the innovative David Farland Discovery program to discover and showcase new talent. David Farland, known as 'the Wizard of Storytelling,' is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author. He's had a hand in discovering and nurturing new talent for years. In the late 1990s, he was asked by the head of Scholastic to help pick a book to push big for the coming year. He chose 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.' As a writing instructor at Brigham Young University, he taught Stephenie Meyer, whose first novel 'Twilight' became an international success. Other students have gone on to become #1 New York Times Bestsellers, including Brandon Sanderson ('Wheel of Time'), Brandon Mull ('Fablehaven'), and James Dashner ('The Maze Runner'). As the lead judge in the world's largest science fiction and fantasy writing contest, Dave has a reputation for spotting and nurturing new talent. Dave says of this new program: 'From time to time, I find novelists of considerable talent, and I've wanted to be able to help them get a boost into the public spotlight. Fortunately, WordFire Press has offered me a forum to do that. I don't have any particular agenda. I like fantasy and science fiction, humor and thrillers, tales for adults and teens. What I look for are tales that are beautifully told, that drag me in. I look for storytellers that I can believe in. Shean Pao fits the bill perfectly with her debut novel, 'The Feather and the Moon Well.' Legend tells of a sorceress, the Willow Woman, living within a white tower who owns a vast hoard of strange and curious items. If you bring her something precious to add to her Collection, she may grant your wish... or curse you. When she has a vision of a great flaming feather that has the power to free her from her tower- prison, she discovers she will have to create an evil spell for a vile lord in order to get it. Will she risk love, friendship and the terrible war she sees within the Moon Well to obtain her goal? This is the first installment in a powerful new series. Farland says: 'Shean Pao draws upon traditional tales of the fairy realm for inspiration while creating a world that is uniquely her own. The resulting story is richly drawn and seductive. This is a book that stands up to rereading time and time again.' The first novel in the David Farland Discovery Program, 'The Feather and the Moon Well' by Shean Pao to Be Released from WordFire Press. WordFire Press • PO Box 1840 • Monument, CO 80132-1840 WordFire Press is a mid-sized Colorado-based publisher owned by New York Times bestselling authors Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.

New Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 12, 2016

Climb aboard the mighty pirate ship Bella for a swashbuckling adventure with Ryan, the fearsome pirate captain. He and his crew of misfits seek buried treasure, but danger awaits those who sail the high seas. Follow their story in this new book by author Joseph Louis Garces III, released by Dog Ear Publishing. In their latest collaboration, Garces and illustrator Bethaney Abercrombie create a story that stars Ryan, who looks every bit the pirate with his peg leg, patch covering one eye, a bushy beard and a hook in place of his right hand. He and his crew - who all have checkered pasts - sail to an island in hope of finding the treasure marked on their map. Once there, they spend days looking for it to no avail. Fate steps in when a drenching rainstorm pops up, and what could have been disaster quickly turns to joy as they make a surprising discovery. 'Ryan the Pirate' is the third in a series of adventure books dedicated to the author's three sons. Its rhyming words move the story along quickly, and the colorful illustrations with their bold brushstrokes bring the adventure to life. This is the third book for author Joseph Louis Garces III, who also wrote 'Garrett the Firefighter' and 'Tyler the Cowpoke.' Garces, a firefighter and arson investigator for the Oxnard Fire Department, previously served as an elementary school teacher. He is a graduate of Southern Utah University. He and his wife, Taira, live in Santa Paula with their three boys. Illustrations were created by Bethaney Abercrombie, who taught junior high school art for years after earning a degree in art education from Brigham young University and a master's degree in art education from Northern Arizona University. She is now a foster mom. She and her husband and five children live in Gilbert, Ariz.
