We’re overjoyed to share the news that Publisher Kathryn Taussig has acquired World English rights, including audio, from Lisa Rodgers at JABberwocky Literary Agency for two books by author M V Melcer. The first book, Refractions, is pitched as Six Wakes meets Interstellar: a dying Earth’s first and only colony planet goes mysteriously silent, spurring a hastily cobbled together rescue mission beset with sabotage, murder, and betrayal. It will publish in October 2023, followed by a second, linked book in 2024.

Melcer says,

“I’m so excited to have Storm and Kathryn as my publisher for these novels. They’ve been a joy to work with already – I’ve been impressed by the team’s expertise and their enthusiasm for my stories. I know I’m in great hands with Kathryn, and can’t wait to bring my stories out to the world.”

Kathryn says,

“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome M V Melcer to the list! Her exceptional talent for creative storytelling is sure to captivate readers. Refractions is a thrilling, unputdownable read that is set in a future that is as beautifully crafted and believable as it is terrifying. We are so excited to work with such a talented author, and we are eager to help bring her work to a wide international audience.”
