New York, NY – May 7, 2013 – Disney-Hyperion, an imprint of Disney Publishing Worldwide, releases WARP Book 1: The Reluctant Assassin by the internationally best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series, Eoin Colfer. The title will be available simultaneously in print and digital on May 7 with a first printing of 750,000. On the heels of his overwhelmingly successful U.K. tour, Eoin Colfer will bring the magic of his new series to life in a nine-city tour across the U.S. this month.

“WARP, which stands for ‘Witness Anonymous Relocation Program,’ is an action-adventure series full of mayhem, magic, and murder—with a villain to die for,” said Eoin Colfer. “I think of this series as Oliver Twist meets The Matrix.”

“Eoin has created three vivid new characters and taken them on a high-stakes, high-tech pursuit through time that’s truly mind-bending,” said Stephanie Lurie, Associate Publisher of Disney-Hyperion. “And the book has all of the wit that made Artemis Fowl so popular.”

In WARP Book 1: The Reluctant Assassin, Eoin Colfer introduces a new character named Riley, a teen orphan boy living in Victorian London. He has had the misfortune of being apprenticed to Albert Garrick, an illusionist who has fallen on difficult times and now uses his unique conjuring skills to gain access to victims’ dwellings. On one such murderous escapade, Garrick brings his reluctant apprentice along for his first killing. Riley is saved from having to commit the grisly act when the intended victim turns out to be a scientist from the future, part of the FBI’s WARP program, and Riley is transported to modern-day London, followed closely by Albert Garrick.

In support of the release of WARP Book 1: The Reluctant Assassin, Eoin Colfer will embark on a two-week, nine-city tour accompanied by a magician, kicking off in Paramus, NJ, and continuing on to Minneapolis, MN; San Diego, CA; Mission Viejo, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL; Wichita, KS; Houston, TX; and St. Louis, MO. The series will also launch with a multiplatform advertising campaign that includes television, print, and online.

Eoin Colfer is the New York Times best-selling author of the Artemis Fowl series (dubbed “Die Hard with fairies”). Since 2001, it has sold over 13 million copies in the United States alone. Starring an irresistible antihero, these middle-grade must-reads follow Artemis on his James Bond–like adventures. In 2012, the conclusion to the Artemis Fowl series, The Last Guardian, was published and supported with Colfer’s live “8-in-8” stage show. Colfer has also written the notable Plugged, Airman, The Supernaturalist, and many other popular books. He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children.

WHILE WE WHERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY….


 

 

While We Were Watching Downton Abbey
Wendy Wax

FROM THE AUTHOR OF TEN BEACH ROAD AND OCEAN BEACH, A NEW NOVEL OF FOUR FRIENDS—AND A SHARED PASSION THAT COULD CHANGE THEIR LIVES

When the concierge of the Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building, invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and—even more unexpectedly—with each other…

Samantha Davis married young and for the wrong reason: the security of old Atlanta money for herself and her orphaned brother and sister. She never expected her marriage to be complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal.

Claire Walker is now an empty nester and struggling author who left her home in the suburbs for the old-world charm of the Alexander, and for a new and productive life. But she soon wonders if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than having no dreams at all.

And then there’s Brooke MacKenzie, a woman in constant battle with her faithless ex-husband. She’s just starting to realize that it’s time to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be.

For Samantha, Claire, Brooke, and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings, it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life’s hardest moments—all of it reflected in the unfolding drama, comedy, and convergent lives of Downton Abbey.

Polar NightABOUT POLAR NIGHT

When Detective Danny Fitzpatrick leaves his hometown of Chicago and moves to Fairbanks, Alaska he wants nothing more than to escape the violence and heartbreak that left his life in pieces. Numbed by alcohol and the frozen temperatures of an Alaskan winter, Danny is content with a dead-end job investigating Fairbanks’ cold cases. That all changes when a pretty blond woman goes missing on the winter solstice, and Danny stumbles upon some surprising connections between her disappearance and that of another Fairbanks woman three years earlier. Forced out of his lethargy, Danny sets out to both find the missing woman and solve his own cold case.

The investigation points Danny towards Aleksei Nechayev, the handsome and charming proprietor of an old asylum turned haunted tourist attraction in the Arctic town of Coldfoot. As he tries to find a link between Nechayev and his case, Danny’s instinct tells him that Nechayev is much more than what he seems.

Danny has no idea that Nechayev is hiding a secret that is much more horrifying than anything he could ever have imagined. As his obsession with finding the missing women grows, Danny finds his own life in danger. And when the truth is finally revealed, the world as he knows it will never be the same.
