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 Do remember we do not publish: children’s picture books, poetry, erotica, general self-help, general memoirs, or political works.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)

The 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to the 2012 Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt!

We had so much fun last year with a smaller version in conjunction with a chat we decided to expand it, gather some terrific prizes and give lots of people a chance to win them by running the event through the month of September.

         A number of our authors have donated those prizes, and they are all related somehow to their books. How they’re related, we aren’t going to tell, beyond maybe a hint or two. We don’t want to give away all our secrets.

         The way the contest works is that a group of Zumaya authors are hosting a collection of links on their blogs. There will be a question about themselves or their books, and a link to where you can find the answer. Visit all the blogs, collect the answers to all the questions, then go here, and complete the contest form.

         Now, a contest wouldn’t be any fun if it was too easy, so we’ve added some book and author-related trivia questions just to challenge you. Take your time—the Zumaya Trivia Scavenger Hunt will run through the entire month of September. You can see photos of some of the great prizes we’re giving away over at  Pinterest in the “What Do These Have In Common” album or at the Zumaya page at Facebook. Who knows— there might even be a few books and ebooks tossed into the mix before we’re done. We’ll definitely be giving away at least one ereader, but we’re waiting for all the new models to come out before we pick those.

         There will also be daily and weekly trivia contests, so keep an eye on Twitter and the Zumaya page on Facebook, or re-visit our company blog Zumaya Tales.  If you haven’t liked the Zumaya page on Facebook, now would be a good time. We’ll also have a chat at Coffee Time Romance and more on 4 September to launch, and a couple of hangouts on Google+ over the next four weeks.

         There is, of course, no purchase required, and your private information will remain between you and Zumaya. Unless we’re authorized to do otherwise, it will all be deleted when the contest ends. While we’d love it if you sampled our wares, our goal with this contest is to get to know as many people as we can, and to let them get to know us. So, welcome and have fun!

Here’s a peek at some of the prizes for the Zumaya Publications Scavenger Hunt:


If you’ve read my novels, you’ll know which one I threw into the pot. Hee hee!

Now to get you started…

At the bottom of this post is a list of Zumaya authors. On each of their websites you’ll find the answer to a question. Collect the answers to those questions, then go to the ZP Survey Monkey page and fill in the answers.
