Children's Books: A brief outline of what the book is about, three pages of writing in a PDF file with 3 of the illustrations to go with it.  Gnome On Pig Productions currently employs only a small number of illustrators who are all working on projects at this time.  You are responsible for payment to your own illustrator and providing proof of copyright, new creation decoration and or splitting of royalties.  We can help you with the splitting of royalties if this method is approved between the author and illustrator.  We can also point you in the right direction to find an illustrator.

    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. We can guide you to illustrators, but you will need to negotiate prices, royalties and contracts with them on your own. Gnome On Pig Productions will not be responsible for payments to illustrators/artists that are not under our direct employment.

Dirtbag Danny

Synopsis: July 30th, 2018

Releasing late 2018/early 2019


By: Mark Taylor



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…
