Ms Kuo, who lives in suburban Chicago, stated that Brimstone Fiction will publish works of fantasy, science fiction, and horror into the Christian and general fiction markets.
“It may seem odd at first, “ Ms Kuo notes, “that such works would have a Christian worldview, but the category of ‘speculative fiction’ offers us a glimpse of worlds beyond our own, and our authors bring to life stories that stretch our imagination, while at the same time glorifying the Creator.”
The first book launched by the new imprint is, “Crossing Into the Mystic,” by DL Koontz. Koontz, a West Virginia-based author, wrote this novel for the young adult, paranormal marketplace, where most readers are exposed to dark, and demonic-themed stories.
Three years after losing her family in a car crash, Grace MacKenna is set to inherit her stepfather's ancestral estate among the mountains of West Virginia. Seeking solace and healing, Grace discovers the ghost of William Kavanaugh, a dashing Civil War captain in Virginia's 17th Infantry, haunts the property. When William charms Grace into investigating the mystery that led to his death a hundred and fifty years ago, she finds herself drawn into a world of chivalry and honor, but also deception with secrets too dark to speak aloud.
Torn between her love for two mysterious young men--one living and one dead--Grace stands in the shadows of the Antietam Battlefield with a choice: one that could leave Grace lost forever, "crossing into the Mystic."
Mr. Jones emphasizes that these new imprints have been established “to create new outlets for authors of non-fiction and various genres of fiction. By creating a new publishing platform for authors who can publish in e-book, audio, and print-on-demand form, LPC creates opportunities for both new and established authors, while providing assistance with marketing and publicity, and generous royalty arrangements, including monthly royalty payments.”
