Beasts of Tabat

When countryboy Teo arrives in the coastal city of Tabat, he finds it a hostile place, particularly to a boy hiding an enormous secret. It’s also a city in turmoil, thanks to an ancient accord to change governments and the rising demands of Beasts, the Unicorns, Dryads, Minotaurs and other magical creature on whose labor and bodies Tabat depends. And worst of all, it’s a city dedicated to killing Shifters, the race whose blood Teo bears. When his fate becomes woven with that of Tabat’s most famous gladiator, Bella Kanto, his existence becomes even more imperiled. Kanto’s magical battle determines the weather each year, and the wealthy merchants are tired of the long winters she’s brought. Can Teo and Bella save each other from the plots that are closing in on them from all sides?

The Synopsis Treasury

Have you ever wondered what successful authors submitted to publishers? Ever wanted to peek over their shoulders and see their synopses or outlines, the ones that landed a book contract (and maybe even the ones that were rejected)? Now’s your chance. Contained within these pages are never-before-seen story submissions by international bestsellers, grandmasters, multi-award winners, and rising stars, each with an original biography and introduction. But what about the publisher’s response? You’ll find some of those here too. Have you ever assumed an editor would accept whatever a heavyweight author gives them? This collection proves that even a successful writer may be asked to rethink, rewrite, and resubmit—and that’s if the editor likes it well enough in the first place. Selected by Christopher Sirmons Haviland over a span of ten years, these real story submissions in their context will supplement all those “how to write and submit” books by showing you how it’s done.
