If you are a pre-teen or have one in your family who
enjoys fantasy tales, pick up this book. It's funny and packed with
just enough action to trigger the reading bug in any youngster.

The Songwriter's Journal
I just wrote my first week's song, and I'm having a
hard time keeping myself from reading ahead to next week. In fact, if
I didn't have other things to do, I could just cuddle up with this
book for the winter and write one song after another. -- S. Lick
This book is packed with innovative jet fuel that will
set your mind soaring into the creative stratosphere. There are
hundreds of imaginative ideas here to unlock the imagination. --
Stony Meadow Publishing is only
interested in mainstream commercial novels of
80,000-200,000 words. Mystery, Suspense, Thrillers, Crime, Science
Fiction and Fantasy are our main interests.
We are also very partial to middle
grade and young adult fiction.
No nonfiction please. (For horror,
visit our Dark Moon Books imprint site.)
Please only send us the first 3
chapters as an attachment to your e-mail. In the body of your e-mail
please include a detailed synopsis of each chapter (or scene) and a
brief (150 words or less) biography at the end of your email. Do not
send multiple submissions. In addition, we don't always have time to
respond personally to each submission -- we do when we can, but
don't expect a response. If we are interested in publishing your
submission, we will contact you within 3 to 6 months of submission.
Simultaneous submissions to other
publishers are acceptable, but you must make us aware of this in
your e-mail and keep us apprised of your story's situation.
