The Website Is Down

EEEKIn case you dropped by and discovered we’ve been exiled to the dreaded Land of 404, our website is currently being held hostage by the company paid to provide security, with the apparent cooperation of our hosting service. We’ll be moving to a new service in the near future, but in the meantime we’ll be staying in touch here and on our Facebook page.

We have some great new titles coming out in the next few months, so do bookmark us and arrange to get an email when we post something. If you’re thinking of submitting a query about your manuscript, please send it to this temporary address. Do remember we do not publish: children’s picture books, poetry, erotica, general self-help, general memoirs, or political works.

Meantime, if you’re looking for something to read that comes with the danger it could rev up critical thinking, we’ve given one of our backlist a new cover that better reflects the story that comes with it.

Bad Day-i

As is the case with all Zumaya books, you can find Bad Day for the Home Team in paperback and ebook wherever good books are sold. If your local bookstore doesn’t have it, ask them to order it for you.

BAD DAY FOR THE HOME TEAM, by Alex O’Meara, from Zumaya Eclectica; Trade paperback, $14.99, ISBN 978-1-93614-436-5, 252 pp.; Ebook, $5.00, ISBN 978-1-93614-437-2 (Kindle), 978-1-61271-378-6 (epub)

Name the Bear, Win Stuff!

(From Elizabeth Burton – posted by GO)

Twenty-odd years ago, my mom bought me a little white wizard bear at an after-Christmas sale. When I joined Zumaya Publications, he/she became our unofficial mascot.

Now, we’re going to make the bear our OFFICIAL mascot, but he/she needs a name. So, for the next month, until ArmadilloCon 33 in August here in Austin, send us your suggestions for what to name the bear. If your name is chosen, we’ll send you a new Kindle loaded with Zumaya ebooks and some other cool swag or a terrific computer attache full of signed Zumaya paperbacks—your choice. We’ll give prizes to the nine runners-up, too.

Send your suggestion to; please include your address with your entry. Entries will be judged by a panel of Zumaya authors and the winner announced on August 28th. You may enter as often as you like, but you must be 13 years old or more to enter. Sorry–legal stuff. And Zumaya authors and their immediate families will have to forego the fun, too. I’ll make it up to y’all, I swear.

Let the contest begin!

Name the Bear Contest!

Little fellow needs a name. Won't you help?
