THE WEARY GOD OF
Who is Lydia Warren? That’s what she’d like to know. An amnesiac, she vaguely remembers arriving in Santorini with this one-armed man she instinctive trusts but cannot recall his name. She guides us through the fog that is her mind, and her odyssey towards understanding that is even further complicated by memories of a life not her own from before she was born.
"Brimming with suspense and carefully controlled darkness, the sounds and smells of Greece waft from every page as Stilling moves back and forth from Lydia’s past life to her present with a dexterity and skill commensurate with Audrey Niffenegger." — Damian McNicholl, author of A Son Called Gabriel and The Moment of Truth.

D. X. Varos is a boutique publishing company that produces works of fiction. Because of our smaller size, we are under no pressure to produce mass quantities of titles and are able to be very selective in our acquisitions. Therefore, all of our titles will be at the pinnacle of their genre.
We only take on a few new fiction authors each year. We also accept nonfiction works about royalty and royal families or biography n general through our House of Willis Publishing imprint. Click on House of Willis in the menu for more info.
Being a small publisher does not mean we don't offer the same services as the big guys do. And yes, we are a REAL publisher. Our authors pay nothing to have their books published. We handle all aspects of perfecting, producing, and distributing your work. We also do promotion, but expect our authors to do the same. To learn more about how we partner with our authors, please see the Expectations page.
About the name: The owner of the company is author Daniel A. Willis. Dano Varos is the main character of his first novel, Immortal Betrayal, and D. Xander Varos is a pen name he uses for certain writing. Many of Daniel's friends are convinced that novel is his autobiography (making him about 600 years old!). So the company was named in homage to this fragment of the owner's complex personality.
