Publisher info

BOOK VIEW CAFE came together in 2008 around a group of authors with a simple aim: to use the Internet to bring their work directly to their readers. It was already clear that a revolution was coming to the publishing industry and these authors wanted to help shape its course.

Drawing on a collective century’s worth of experience in the publishing industry, the authors created an online space where readers can browse and discover new authors and titles alongside current favorites. Aware that the Internet demands variety, the site features fresh fiction every day on the front page, a feat made possible by the extensive list of material available to over over thirty professional authors, including bestsellers and award winners such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, Laura Anne Gilman, Sarah Smith, Sarah Zettel and Steven Harper.

Since its launch, Book View Café has experienced a steady growth in readers and in author-members. The Cafe now receives over 700,000 hits every month. The author blog has also seen increasing popularity since its launch, drawing a further eight to nine thousand hits per month. You can visit the website at www.bookviewcafe.com.

The Phoenix Feather
After six years of happy immersion in Eastern history, language, literature and art, last year when we got sequestered in our homes, Sherwood Smith wanted escape into such a world, and so began writing The Phoenix Feather as a xuanhuan (an offshoot of the far older wuxia genre, which borrows freely from various mythologies), just to see where it would go. ISmithdeliberately put in all the most fun tropes—disguises, hidden secrets, martial arts training, beauty in people, places, and things.
Rise of the Alliance II: The Blood Mage Texts
Long-dormant magical forces are moving again in Sartorias-deles. In a four volume arc beginning with A Sword Named Truth, a shaky alliance made among young rulers brought too early to their thrones survived a first foray, commanded by Siamis, the handsome young Norsundrian who was born four thousand years ago. e! The world’s mages know it’s not the quiet of peace—it’s the stillness before the storm. The sinister and elusive Norsundrian commander Detlev has been seen more often in the past five years than he has in the past five hundred. The young allies discover that the alliance has been infiltrated by a mirror alliance of Norsundrian boys. Trained by Detlev. Which leads inexorably to the deadliest of stalking games . . .
Exordium
Exordium is a space opera with mythic resonance, often describes as a cross between Star Wars and Dangerous Liaisons with a touch of the Three Stooges.
