Lynn Hortel author of Throwback

Lynn Hortel has lived in several cities throughout the southwest. She never felt settled until she moved to Joshua Tree where she fell in love with the surreal landscape. At Seton Hill University she earned an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, and Throwback is her first complete novel—partly written out in the desert, scribbled on notebook paper while surrounded by cacti. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hiking, stargazing, and wildflower viewing. She lives with her son and an Australian Cattle Dog named Richard.

Welcome Ari Marmell!

We are thrilled to announce that Ari Marmell will be joining the Omnium Gatherum team!  Welcome!

When Ari Marmell has free time left over between feeding cats and posting on social media, he writes a little bit. His work includes novels, short stories, role-playing games, and video games, all of which he enjoyed in lieu of school work when growing up. He’s the author of the Mick Oberon gangland/urban fantasy series, the Widdershins YA fantasy series, and many others, with publishers such as Del Rey, Titan Books, Pyr Books, Wizards of the Coast, and now Omnium Gatherum.

Ari currently resides in Austin, Texas. He lives in a clutter that has a moderate amount of apartment in it, along with George—his wife—and the aforementioned cats, who probably want something.

You can find Ari online, if you’re not careful.

Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Alice Loweecey recently celebrated her thirtieth year outside the convent. She grew up watching Hammer horror films and Scooby-Doo mysteries, which explains a whole lot. When she's not creating trouble for her sleuth Giulia Driscoll or inspiring nightmares as her alter-ego Kate Morgan, she can be found growing her own vegetables (in summer) and cooking with them (the rest of the year).

Cruce Roosters
By Brent Michael Kelley

Ebook $3.99

Release day is here! Get your copy today!

Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please! Let me introduce tonight’s guest of honor, none other than the big guy himself… the big poppa, the never-gonna-stoppa, the cream that rose to the toppa… give it up for YOUR! PROPHIT! KING! With his golden staff, Prophit King runs the Nation, keeps you safe from traitors, and presides over that greatest of sports: Cruce!

Molly Most is the Crucecaster from G-1 whose star is on the rise. She’s on her way to being the greatest Crucecaster the world has ever seen. Molly isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble finds her when she catches Prophit King’s eye. Telling him “no” isn’t an option, but an ally might be buzzing in her ear.

The Fog of War lifts, crucibles are revealed, and two teams of Roosters clash in a brutal melee. It’s the greatest sport the world has ever known, and this time the stakes could not be higher. Staple your eyes open, and set up permanent residence on the edge of your seat for a Cruce Championship to annihilate all championships!
