Hello readers and writers! We’ve got massive news to share with you today… Writer’s Edit has launched a new fantasy fiction imprint: Talem Press!
Talem Press is a new publisher of fantasy books, and is an imprint of Writer’s Edit Press.
Founded in February 2017, they’re a completely independent, Sydney-based house.
Talem is the latin word for ’empower’, which is exactly what their books and authors aim to do.
They believe in the life-changing potential of stories, and everything they publish seeks to provide inspiration and escape.
The folk at Talem are particularly passionate about unlikely heroines, mysterious magic and out-of-this-world story-telling.
Talem Press will be publishing our very own Founding Editor, Helen Scheuerer‘s debut fantasy novel Heart of Mist later this year.
Heart of Mist is the gripping first book in The Oremere Chronicles, a fantasy trilogy of epic proportions.
Here’s a little sneak preview…
In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.”
Helen is a YA fantasy author from Sydney, Australia. Heart of Mist is the first book in her high fantasy trilogy, The Oremere Chronicles. It explores themes of identity, belonging, loyalty, addiction, loss, and responsibility.
After writing literary fiction for a number of years, novels like Throne of Glass, Elantris, The Queen’s Poisoner and The Queen of the Tearling inspired Helen to return to her childhood love of fantasy.
Helen is currently accepting review and interview queries, and has a media kit available upon request. Get in touch with her here.
