Still a new author trying to write and publish his first novel.

I met Suzy Vadori at the Rocky Mountain Writer’s Retreat two years ago. Over the weekend several discussions about writing with her and others occurred including an extended discuss on relationships and romances in YA. She also took the time to explain her method of plotting stories. She described herself as a quilter. Which made a lot of sense to me. I learned to enjoy YA lit raising my three boys. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, you know the list. So I bought her book and read it. Gave it to my sister, she loved it. Wonderful story, well written, with one of the evilest antagonists ever! I kid you not!

A New Chapter for Evil Alter Ego Press

mplestedWell, actually it would be more accurate to say, “A New Novel for Evil Alter Ego Press”, but the sentiments are the same.  In this case the new novel/chapter is The Fountain by Suzy Vadori.

When we formed Evil Alter Ego Press we always intended to bring in new, exciting authors. What we hadn’t planned is to find someone so awesome so quickly.

Suzy Vadori is, to put it mildly, a force of nature. She is a great writer AND she has a terrific handle on promotion and what is necessary to make a book successful. That is a terrific one-two punch any author would be fortunate to have in their kit bag.

When Ava discovers a deeply hidden school secret everything changes. Guilt drives her to try to fix what she has broken but nothing is ever that easy.

We at EAEP are thrilled to announce the release of Suzy’s debut novel. Today. December 8, 2015. We know Suzy will do great things, not just with this book, but with her future works as well.

And with this book release, we officially enter the next chapter of our journey as a publisher. Stay tuned. More is coming.
