Only the phoenix rises and does not descend. And everything changes. And nothing is truly lost.

If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

“Andes, an acclaimed Latin American historian, makes a meaningful splash with this action-packed and heartfelt debut. Jade, Daughter of the Wasteland moves swiftly and powerfully, like its heroine. Check it out.”

They called it the Twitch. It decimated the world’s adult population and forced survivors to endure the savage dangers it left behind. But that was fifteen years ago…

Headstrong, sword-wielding survivor, Jade, wanders The Wasteland in search of her kidnapped brother. Her quest pits her against feral children, diseased Twitchers, and plague-mask wearing warlords bent on reclaiming their rule, all for the sake of reuniting her family.

With the aid of The Librarian, the de facto ruler of the Wasteland, Jade uncovers the truth about her brother. She must confront her past and face hard choices about those she loves and those who demand her loyalty. When new violence and bloodshed threaten to destroy The Wasteland, Jade must choose her side wisely. Will she die in battle when the war comes to the Library? Or will she overcome her past and seize her role in rebuilding humanity's future to rise as a daughter of the wasteland.

JADE, Daughter of the Wasteland is a coming-of-age story about a strong female protagonist with a sword and a mission in a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of zombie-like Twitchers and other horrors in the Louisiana swamps, action-packed and full of suspense.

We are an independent book publisher, specializing in original fiction of all sorts and sizes. We like vast universes and big worlds often depicted in science fiction, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, and dystopian stories, but we do not limit ourselves.


Our vision is to build a lasting legacy with enduring immortality thanks to a captivating mythos. We believe through published works true alchemy is achieved, and it is there that we find our apotheosis.


The Phoneix rises from a flame of its own making, bursting from the pages of a book to become godlike. This is legacy. This is immortality. This is mythos.


Our mission is to produce long-lasting, high-quality fiction books, shared throughout the world for all time, as they continue to inspire generation after generation of readers.
