    2. Teen Books: A brief outline of what the book is about including desired genre, a PDF file of the first 1000 words, is the book a stand alone or a part of  a series.  If illustrations are to be included you must provide those upon acceptance to publish the work.

  7. We print in ENGLISH only. If you use any other language in your books it is on the onus of the author to make sure the translations are correct.

  8. Children's books must have their own illustrator as Gnome On Pig Productions does not employ an illustrator at this time.

Book #2




Author: Fred Waiss




Synopsis: 


Ron has completed his student teaching in high school physical education, along with a minor in “adventure”. He graduates but returns immediately to continue his post-graduate work.

During this time Ron finds himself able to move on socially. Jean Dahlquist, one of Audrey's best friends, re-enters his life and befriends him only to finally reveal to Ron that she has been in love with him for a long time. She could not tell him this before because Ron and Audrey were so in love. Jean would never want to hurt her friendship with Audrey. Ron decides a friendship is a good thing but after a short time Ron finds himself returning the feeling.

Life seems to return to a sense of normality only to have one of Jean's family secrets and a past acquaintance toss it into chaos again.

Trinity


By: Mark Taylor



Synopsis: 

 

The dust storms of planet Falstaff rage tirelessly. On its surface, the mining colony Trinity is ending its three-year rotation. Before the miners can celebrate their return to Earth, something comes from the darkness. Something terrible. People are changing.

Contact with the military base on the nearest moon has ceased. Everyone there is gone.

Hundreds are left without hope, cut off from rescue. Help is days away, halfway across the solar system. It may as well be a lifetime.

A chosen handful must find the answers and fight for survival – the overworked project administrator, a first-time engineer, a doctor, and an aging judge, must battle against the darkness seeping into every human on the planet.

Without them it will mean the termination of life on TRINITY.


A science fiction/horror mashup, Trinity is full of action, peril, and terror. A novel where no one is safe…
