GALAXY CRAZE will intro­duce The Last Princess, in which a series of nat­ural dis­as­ters has dev­as­tated the earth, and a young princess of Eng­land must escape from a mur­der­ous rev­o­lu­tion­ary who is tar­get­ing her royal fam­ily

KATE KLIMO will present Daugh­ter of the Cen­taurs — Cen­turiad #1, fol­low­ing the tale of Mal­ora, the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of a tribe of horse wran­glers and hunters, who must now roam the dan­ger­ous wild with no one but a band of horses for com­pan­ion­ship

ALETHEA KONTIS will intro­duce Enchanted, an inven­tive new take on an age-old fairy­tale about Sun­day, the youngest of seven sis­ters named for the days of the week, who befriends a frog with the poten­tial to become a prince — will she find love in such an unlikely place? 

ELIZABETH NORRIS will share Unrav­el­ing, in which high schooler Janelle is hit by a car then mirac­u­lously brought back to life by loner Ben — and her mys­te­ri­ous revival is only the first of many puz­zles she’ll have to solve.

And last but not least, MARY G. THOMPSON will present Wuftoom, the story of a sick boy named Evan who is con­fined to his bed and expe­ri­enc­ing a meta­mor­pho­sis into some­thing even sci­ence can­not explain, all alone except for his vis­its from the Wuftoom, a worm­like crea­ture who tells Evan he is becom­ing “one of them.”
