I love Orbit's continued progress toward inclusivity. Your most recent acquisition announcements are very exciting. Can't wait to read them!
Thanks for having book giveaways!
131 Days. Book series by Keith Blackmore. Brutal violence and awesome character development.
When I try to sign up for newsletter I keep getting an error. Whats up?
Awesome prize im entered thank u f the opportunity
Love the Expanse Series
Just finished book #8. I'm in distress - waiting for #9...!
I’m amazed at how poor the editing is in The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind. The countless typos, repeated words, unintentional grammatical errors, et al, are pretty appalling. You may want to give this some attention if you guys want to be around for a while. Good story though.
🙏
So happy to have found this family of books!
Thank you for the opportunity.
I’ve been looking for a new publisher. Who can I talk to about this?
