Allegiant Publishing Group Acquires Wizards Keep Publishing

We’re very excited that we’ve been able to acquire Wizards Keep Publishing. The company means a lot to our CMO, Christian Lee, because he was offered his first publishing contract in December of 2014 by Wizards Keep. While things didn’t work out for Wizards Keep to publish his book, Christian learned a lot from the experience.

When Wizards Keep’s progress came to halt, we were greatly saddened and decided to step in and offer to carry on Wizards Keep’s work: “bringing visibility to fantasy and science fiction writers who are essentially marginalized in the current field of romantic fiction”.  To our great satisfaction, we were successful in acquiring Wizards Keep in December of 2015.

We have big plans for Wizards Keep! We plan to relaunch the company in April with Andretta’s help. We’ll be introducing a “Book Family Program” that will allow us to guarantee authors that we will publish all the books in their series or trilogy if they so wish and if their subsequent books adhere to our submission guidelines. We’re really excited about this program, and we’re sure that many authors will love to take advantage of it.

 

Check this blog often as we’ll update everyone as we make progress on relaunching Wizards Keep!

Exciting Things Happening For Wizards Keep

I hope that everyone had a great holiday season! We at Wizards Keep has been very busy this month, and we have finally dotted all of our I’s and crossed our T’s.

Wizards Keep has been acquired by Allegiant Publishing Group, and the closing date is slated for February 1, 2016.  Now that the contract has been signed, we can disclose a little more.

Wizards Keep Publishing was approached by Snow Leopard Publishing, the flagship imprint of Allegiant Publishing Group, with an offer of purchase. While Allegiant Publishing Group is relatively new, Snow Leopard is staffed by publishing professionals. One of the main reasons that I believed this to be the right step is that their social media presence is vastly superior to mine. They have a full staff, and their Chief Marketing Officer is very good at public relations, publicity, and social media, and I believe that your books will receive greater visibility and acclaim through their staff than my staff of one could ever give them.

My initial dream of opening this publishing house was to bring visibility to fantasy and science fiction writers who were essentially marginalized in the current field of romantic fiction.  Not only do I believe we succeeded, but we enabled three worthy authors of reaching their dream of becoming published.  I expect great things in the future for Wizards Keep Publishing and Allegiant Publishing.  Rest assured that the Wizards Keep name will carry on, as it is becoming an imprint of Allegiant.

Snow Leopard’s Chief Marketing Officer, Christian Lee, will be posting his own blog entry to detail more information from his side of these negotiations.

If you have any questions or concerns please continue to email us at Wizardskeeppublishing@gmail.com.
Thank you,
Andretta Schellinger
Current Co-Owner
Wizards Keep Publishing

The Future of Wizards Keep Publishing

On July 27, 2015 the family of Wizards Keep suffered a tremendous loss.  To be honest this is the first time that the owners have even looked at the website since that day.  We were attempting to honor the authors currently under contract and working to get more books on the shelves, however the owners realized they couldn’t get new books processed.  During this time we have also been working towards processing our loss.

 

At this time Wizards Keep will not be bringing on new authors but will stay true to our authors already published.  We feel that this is fair to them as well as to our customers.  Our next book was due to be published 1 September but that will not happen.

 

We do not know if we will be picking up new authors in the future, we do not know what will become of Wizards Keep, but to our audience and authors, we will continue to carry your books, we will continue your series, and we will continue to work through this.

 

Thank you

“The Broken Alliance” by Bennett Mohler

Wizards Keep would like to officially announce the upcoming publication

“The Broken Alliance” A Legend of Rhett Novel by Bennett Mohler.

 

LegendofRhett_FinalCover_FrontOnly (1)

 

Book Title: The Broken Alliance

Book Series: The Legend of Rhett

Publication Date: July 1, 2015

Word Count: 105,000

Page Count: 289

Publication Price: $11.99 TP, $3.99 Digital

 

Synopsis: 

 

“I am only that which others see me as, and others are only that which I see them as.”

Everyone knew the name Beio-Rhett but no one knew what he looked like.  While he did his part during the Rebellion, Beio-Rhett was not known for being benevolent.  Instead he was seen by many as a mercenary.  However in a galaxy where fighting is common place, and grudges are held among nationalities for generations, it is up to Beio Rhett, his friend Dembo, and the persnickety Sergeant Singatt to travel to distant lands and become pseudo government agents.

While seemingly straight forward for Beio-Rhett and Dembo, there is more to their mission than they were prepared for.  Even with joining forces, can the ragtag group combat the Masked Menace?

Synopsis:

To young Staff Sergeant Susan Bennett it was just another mission, yet when her actions were transmitted to the world via a helmet camera she becomes an instant hero – especially to a young Ciara O’Brien.

Lieutenant Paul O’Brien was only thinking about getting home to his daughter and family when a common enemy decided an embassy in Cameroon was a good place to exact revenge. With the aid of Bennett they were able to extract themselves from an otherwise deadly situation. While their heroics saved lives, it also placed a bounty on their heads.

Now, in a race to save themselves and their family; Bennett and O’Brien must make sacrifices to save lives, including leaving the only family they have to travel to a colony on a far off planet. While there, it quickly becomes apparent that not all is the way it seems, and Bennett and O’Brien must rely on each other if they plan on coming out alive.
