Broke Guys Productions transitions to small-print press with these editions.
To ring in the New Year, co-creators Jeremy Hicks and Barry Hayes would like to announce new editions of their gripping, action-packed dark fantasy novels in the Cycle of Ages Saga. Mr. Hicks—acting as publisher for their company, Broke Guys Productions—reacquired the rights to their first novel from Dark Oak Press and published new editions of Finders Keepers and Sands of Sorrow. With these recent releases, Broke Guys Productions transitions to a small-print press for genre novels and short stories after years of serving as a means to produce and promote their novels and screenplays.
Seeking to rebrand their flagship property, Hicks and Hayes commissioned Indonesian artist Enggar Adirasa to supply a vibrant series of covers for these editions. Using Adirasa’s artwork, author and artist D. Alan Lewis designed eye-catching covers that provide a unified aesthetic for the Cycle of Ages Saga. These editions of Finders Keepers and Sands of Sorrow are available online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-a-Million in both paperback and e-book. Mr. Hicks is editing Delve Deep, the third installment in their saga. It is scheduled for release in 2017, but cover art will be revealed soon. Stay tuned!
Called “The Hobbit meets Heavy Metal” by author Michelle Lowery Combs, the Cycle of Ages Saga will conclude after five novels. However, short stories set on the world of faraway Faltyr can be found online through Dark Oak Press and Pro Se Productions. Deep Diving Death Defying Dwarves of the Deep is featured in the first Capes & Clockwork anthology. Savior of Istara is a story in the Pro Se Digital Single Shot Series. More stories are scheduled for release through Pro Se in the near future. In the words of Mr. Hicks, their saga was created “to provide a sandbox big enough for every fan of fantasy and horror.” Eventually, the creators hope to open up their world to other writers looking for a place to call home. In the meantime, they will continue to work on their novels and push the screenplay versions of the saga.
After a rough and tumble career in field archaeology, Jeremy Hicks teamed up with long-time friend Barry Hayes to realize their creative dreams. They created Broke Guys Productions, wrote screenplay versions and then novel versions of the Cycle of Ages Saga, and had Finders Keepers published by Dark Oak Press in 2013.
