New Releases 2020

Despite the global setbacks and productivity hit of COVID-19, Verge Publishing, for its company debut, is still slated to launch 5 new titles in 2020 alone, with more to come in 2021! It may be uncertain times, but everyone here at Verge is Beyond excited for all of our projects to come to fruition!

Here's a peek at what we have in store:

Into the Beyond - Part 1: Fated - Paul James Keyes

 The Beyond exists outside of time...

few are fated to enter.

High school sophomore Lewis Graham is awakened by a strange creature appearing through a portal in his bedroom.  The creature looks like a doll, dressed in a little button-down suit, and calls himself Mr. Gray.  He says he is from the realm of immortals - a place called the Beyond - and that he is a Fate, like the three Fates of Greek and Roman mythology.  Mr. Gray says he has come to lead Lewis to his destiny, and that it is imperative he does what he’s told.

Mr. Gray insists on being taken to school with Lewis to help guide him through his day, but when Lewis follows Mr. Gray’s instructions, some very bad things start happening to the people around him.  Lewis is forced to question what sort of destiny the creature really has in store for him.

Mr. Gray claims no one else can see or hear him, but when a Native American girl at school sneaks Lewis a note containing three simple words, he is launched down a frightening and thought-provoking path:

Don’t Trust It.

Into the Beyond - Part 2: Far From Human - Paul James Keyes

The Beyond exists outside of time,

and its threats are far from human.

Part 2 of the Into the Beyond series brings new meaning to the term ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’ as unwitting hero Lewis Graham uses the riverbank of the Beyond to travel back up the river of time and re-live the events of Part 1 from a whole new perspective.

Armed only with a prophetic journal written by other versions of himself who failed at the journey ahead, Lewis must secretly help his slightly-younger self escape from the Agares - a sinister enemy that wishes to erase not only Lewis, but all of humanity by harvesting the energy of our universe‘s very creation.

A brief warning in the journal’s pages fails to provide peace of mind.

When the Agares are near, time stands still around you.  Pretend to freeze, and whatever you do, don’t forget:

They always come in pairs.

The Arcadian Complex - Book 1: Wrought by Fire - Paul James Keyes

An exhilarating fantasy with science lurking at its core.

A mysterious young man suffering from amnesia awakens near the small rural community of Darrenfield. Nicknamed Belford, the man is plagued with haunting visions of a destroyed world. When sixteen-year-old Javic Elensol discovers Belford on his property, it doesn't take long before Javic realizes there is more to him than meets the eye. Gifted with seemingly impossible abilities, Belford is capable of bending both man and nature to his will... that is, as long as the moon is up.

Disappearances around town coincide with the arrival of a dark stranger - also endowed with supernatural powers. When the man uses his abilities to commit unspeakable acts of violence within the community, Javic and Belford must flee for their lives as the stranger's intentions become painfully clear: He will stop at nothing to eliminate Belford and anybody else who stands in his way.

 

The Arcadian Complex - Book 2: Ashen Sky - Paul James Keyes


An exhilarating fantasy with science lurking at its core.

Times are far from ideal in the capital city of Erotos. The struggle for power blurs the lines of friend and foe. Between the Arcanum, the queen, the Ver’konus, and the threat of enemy agents hiding in plain sight, everyone is a pawn in somebody’s deadly game.

The military academy holds claim over Javic and Belford, but with all-out war looming on the horizon, and unpredictable fluctuations of the Power literally tearing the streets of Erotos apart beneath their feet, there is little time for either of them to focus on their mandated training.

Belford’s past becomes clear as his memories resurface, but the more he learns about who he is and where he came from, the less certain the future becomes. Can Belford stitch together the shards of his forgotten memories before his past inevitably catches up with him?

 
 

Passenger Poet - Audrey Kohler

How do you tell your boyfriend of three years you are moving to Alaska without him?

Like the ocean, the waves of this story may carry you through from beginning to end, or you may flip freely to gather just what you need.
Apply these words to your own narrative. Reach for these poems as you would a favorite song, to bend meaning in whatever direction your heart desires.

This is heartbreak
and self-love
This is trial and error
This is everything I have felt since I was
seventeen

I have done my best to craft you
a cup of tea
a conversation
to be shared and sipped

I am offering my heart to you
so, should you need it,
you might be able to tend to your own
