Zumaya Publications LLC

is an innovative publishing company that strives to bring the best of fiction to the public. Zumaya officially launched in 2001 with the release of its first titles in print and PDF format. Every year will bring an ever expanding listing to suit all tastes.

With new publishers appearing and failing almost daily, Zumaya Publications stands apart by limiting its list to only the highest quality titles.

One of the advantages of the new digital publishing industry is that we are able to offer titles from talented authors previously overlooked by traditional markets or who write in genres transcending standardized categories of fantasy, science fiction, romance, mystery, and others.

Zumaya’s philosophy is simple. If it’s a great, well-written story, we’ll publish it!

Our books are not only available through several channels in the US, but also in Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

We publish in both trade paperback and several kinds of ebook formats. All Zumaya ebooks are offered free of digital rights management (DRM), which means no matter whom you buy it from, you can convert it to read on the reader or app of your choice.

    Pennwriters – Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction with Barbara Mountjoy (AKA Alana Lorens and Lyndi Alexander)

    WEEK ONE:

    Discussion of different types of sci fi (hard sci fi, space opera, etc) and fantasy, high fantasy, urban fantasy, etc.  Writing assignment will be to sketch out a rough outline of the piece students will be working on for the class, using the above guidelines, whether a short story or novel beginning.

     

    WEEK TWO:  

    Discussion of tropes and how to avoid them. Drawing characters. Power Point presentation on world-building. Lessons from AVATAR on how to shortcut some world-building by using similar concepts that people already know. Writing assignment will be to continue to embellish the outline with interesting characters, situations and oddities of the world they are creating.

     

    WEEK THREE:

    Watching Firefly episode “Out of Gas,” an exercise in learning how to insert small details so that it doesn’t look like heroes are God-moding when they can suddenly do everything at the climax. Writing exercise will be to analyze piece for possible placement of such details.

     

    WEEK FOUR: 

    Sharing the works we’ve done over the month, feedback offered, “pickles of praise” as well as whatever participants request. Discussion of what might be done to expand this piece into something longer, and encouragement offered!
