Acquisitions Announcement: Bewitching Books for 2021

We're stopping by this cool Autumn morning with a chilling announcement. Here are six brand new voices that we've added to the Parliament brew...

E.M. Wright: Sedition

In an alternate Victorian England, clockwork cyborgs provide the main source of

labour for the upper class. Known as biomatons, they are property by law and have been manipulated and mind-controlled into subservience.

Taryn Roft, a 17-year-old girl attending classes at Grafton’s School of Mechanicks in London has a secret: her left arm is made entirely of clockwork. She keeps her deformity hidden beneath a glove, but the existence she has managed to eke out is neither easy nor exciting. Worse, she cannot remember anything before her twelfth birthday, neither the man who made her a Biomaton, nor the reason he abandoned her. More than anything in the world, she wishes she were human.

Despite all her uncertainties, Taryn of sure of one thing—she was created for more than slavery.

She was built for rebellion.

Sedition was acquired by The Parliament House Press for publication in early 2021.

About the author:

E.M. Wright has been writing since she grew too big for playing pretend. She lives in Portland, Oregon, beneath the shadow of Mt. Hood. She works as a freelance editor and full-time bookstore employee, because everyone knows you can’t make money writing. You can find her @EMWrightWrites on Twitter.
