Arizona Publisher Adds Science Fantasy Author to Roster

Press Release

[Mesa, AZ]- Brick Cave Media, an Arizona based publisher of Science Fiction, Fantasy and poetry, has acquired the rights to Spyder's Wyrd, the debut novel from author Adrienne Bengtson. Writing as Adrienne Miles, Spyder's Wyrd is a Science Fantasy novel intended to take the reader into a new universe of Adrienne's creation.


Starfighter Ulla Thorsdaughter, shot down in the backcountry of the planet that her ship deployed to protect, wants only to get back to civilization so she can get back in the sky. The Fates, having other plans, want to meet her in person. This is the story of how a mid-career starfighter—who already thinks she is hot stuff—must, for her own good and the good of the world where she finds herself, embrace newfound psi skills and become an integral part of a community she knows almost nothing about.


Brick Cave Principal Support Executive Bob Nelson shared, "Adrienne came to our pitch session at the Mesa Book Festival in 2023, and her questions were on point, she showed us she had done some real homework. We were excited to learn more about Spyder's Wyrd, and after reading the completed draft and a couple of author/staff meetings we realized Adrienne  and her manuscript are a great fit for us."  


Slated for release in late 2024/early 2025, Spyder's Wyrd will be available worldwide. Adrienne will be celebrated by Brick Cave with a live virtual event on Tuesday, April 23 at 7pm. The event can be viewed on YouTube Live at Brick Cave Media's YouTube channel.
