About the author

Steve Young (The Author) Born and raised in and around Chelmsford in Essex in 1975. Came from a solid, good working-class family. Didn't find growing up particularly easy due to a large amount of the time being bullied for various reasons one of which was likely to have been my height. The smallest of my peers for many years stopped growing at fourteen reaching just five foot two inches. I've struggled with various mental health issues for many years and have found a technique of visualization that seems to work and allow me to keep the condition under control without the use of any medication. I appreciate not all methods work the same for everyone and I would never claim I know more than a doctor but this seems to work well for me. I've always had a love for the arts and reading finding solace in comics and cartoons. Favourite authors have always been Roald Dahl, Robert Louis Stevenson, Charles Dickens, J R R Tolkien, Lloyd Alexander, C S Lewis and Ian Fleming. My other love was that of Rock Music, I never learnt to play any instruments nor how to sing but I have always appreciated the atmospheric escapism that one experienced when listening to the like of Genesis, Queen, Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden. This is why I decided to create a fantasy novel paying tribute to the various different genres of creativity I have the utmost respect and admiration for.

Synopsis

Adult Fantasy. Realm of Muzeek, Young Hero from Roxtopia goes on an adventure to save his sister from the evil Conqueror on the Island of Classishe. Lots of magic, threat, emotional heartache, some gruesome horror moments for people who enjoyed Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Recognisable Classic Rock Songs will be spotted throughout this fan fantasy story for all geeks at heart.

Why support this book?

  • If people enjoyed Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings but also have a nostalgic love for Rock Music then this'll be a fun read for them.
  • If people find some novels too intimidating due to the amount of pages to plough through this is a light fun adult fantasy read with a certain level of tongue in cheek humour so people may prefer this.
  • This story has a lot of potential to transfer easily onto various formats, audiobook for all the vast array of characters, fully illustrated graphic novel for all the descriptive imagery, a lightweight paperback for a great travel book and for the small download file as a Kindle purchase
  • This story ends on a cliffhanger which allows potential for future stories as prequels as well as sequels..
  • Perhaps if you've enjoyed the Discworld stories by Terry Pratchett this may appeal to you.

Boyle & Dalton logo Boyle & Dalton

Boyle & Dalton publishes great books. Our carefully vetted catalog includes work of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The world of publishing is changing, we're changing with it.

The Boyle & Dalton imprint was founded in 2014, as a quality-vetted imprint of Columbus Publishing Lab. Founder Brad Pauquette conceptualized a hybrid model which balances the financial and rights model of self publishing with the quality controls and production excellence of a traditional publisher.

Boyle & Dalton authors share in the cost of producing and marketing their book. Within our hybrid model, authors gain access to the infrastructure and resources of a traditional publisher, but retain the majority of the profits as if they had self-published.

Working together with authors, we produce books that compete with their traditionally published counterparts, but we adapt to the realities of modern publishing and take advantage of the technologies available to us.
Our designers and editors produce exceptional books that are distributed in both print and digital formats to all major retailers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Boyle & Dalton carefully considers all submissions for publication, based on manuscript quality. Boyle & Dalton does not acccept erotica or children's books.

We vet all submissions for quality, and only accept titles that will preserve the reputation of the Boyle & Dalton imprint.

All Boyle & Dalton books undergo a rigorous editing and production process, including developmental editing to ensure that your book is the best that it can be.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
