2014 has seen some exciting and eclectic new fantasy authors joining the LAW list. So if you're looking for something a little different...
Already a bestseller in her native Hungary, debut author A O Esther now launches her addictive fantasy romance series Shattered Glories globally in the English language. An avid social media user, A O Esther has been sharing her novels, their origins and inspirations on Facebook and Pinterest and is growing a legion of loyal fans. The first two books, Lost Souls and Torn Heart have just been published, with a further two later in November 2014 and four more in Spring 2015 (Amazon KDP). The series has also been snapped up in Brazil (Editora Record).
Pulp author Anonymous has already reached the bestseller lists in France, Germany, Poland and Spain with his horror trilogy The Bourbon Kid. His latest book Psychokiller (Sonatine) has now also reached no.6 in the French bestseller lists. The story of a serial killer at loose in the town of B Movie Hell, it is currently in development with Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures (Rock of Ages, Pawn Sacrifice) and Alexandra Milchan (Wolf of Wall Street, Bullet To The Head). Murder also lies at the heart of The Damned, the first in a fantasy trilogy by new author Tarn Richarson. Poldek Tacet, its troubled anti-hero, faces all of manner of beastly predators, including werewolves, as he tries to solve a mysterious murder in the town of Arras during the outbreak of WW1 (Duckworth Overlook, 2015). Inspired by a trip to the Somme this blend of meticulous historical research and stirring, dark fantasy marks the debut of a very individual authorial voice.

If you are a new author, please read the submission guidelines before doing anything else.
