Her sister has contracted the virus and Alice is the only one who will brave Wanderland to save her. In her adventures she meets Chess, Waite R. Abbott, the Red Queen, Matt Hatta, and other fantastic characters who help and hinder her along the way. Will she be able to find the cure and save her sister? Find out in Alice Z!

Outline

Borogove Industries.

that changes everything she once thought to be true.

Original Cover Art by J.M. Sullivan

Competition

Alice Z is a retelling Lewis Carroll's classic tale with a scary spin- zombies! Although this concept has been explored (White Rabbit Chronicles, Insanity), J.M. Sullivan's book is an intriguing adaptation that both lovers of Carroll's work and the undead will enjoy. She incorporates Carroll's classic characters with a fresh twist that makes them  recognizable yet intriguing at the same time. Readers will not only enjoy the adventures of Alice and the thrills of momerath chases, but will also be delighted in matching beloved characters with their revamped counterparts, making Wanderland a true Wonderland.

Austin Brothers Publishing logo Austin Brothers Publishing

Helping writers realize the dream of publishing a book is the goal of Austin Brothers Publishing. We provide all the services of a traditional publisher, working in partnership with the author, to create the book the author desires.

Our strength is the ability to fill any role you might have, including ghost writing, helping you complete a manuscript, publishing, printing, distribution, or any service you might need to complete your book. Our process is determined by your needs. If you want assistance with self-publishing we can help.

Depending on the author and book, we can function as a traditional publisher, providing a royalty for each sale, or if you need more assistance, you will pay a small fee up front, but then we provide a very generous royalty. Working together, we can decide which method is best for both of us.

Each of our books are designed and produced individually, no templates or computer generated boxes. You will work directly with a real person who shares the same goal, to get your book published in the best possible manner.

i2i Publishing logo i2i Publishing

i2i Publishing was founded by Lionel Ross who is himself the published author of eight books. He knows, only too well, the almost impossible task confronting a new author when he seeks to find a book publishing company. Writers devote months and years of their lives to crafting and creating books devoted to the education and entertainment of unseen others. They then discover that their beloved manuscript is just a piece of often worthless merchandise in the eyes of the vast majority of book publishing companies. New authors receive countless numbers of rejection letters from the mainstream publishers who prefer to play it safe with either established authors or celebrity authored books. Finally new writers turn in desperation to the so-called Vanity market. There they are promised, in return for vast sums of money, that their book will be published.

Now there is another way, the i2i way. We DO ask for a small financial contribution towards costs but only on a SHARED RISK basis. And after that initial payment, the risk is all ours. We know from personal experience that most new authors are not 'made of money.'

We are always open to submissions and promise a quick response, be it positive or negative.

We are NOT a self-publishing organisation - rather a partnership between Author and Publisher and where your book, if accepted, will have an internationally recognised imprint - i2i

If you want to see your book on bookshop shelves and on the websites of electronic booksellers worldwide just ask us to consider your manuscript.
