Welcome to the Polyverse

Many words. Many universes. Many stories. At Polyverse, our mission is to turn these stories into completed titles. With consistent industry research, and a tendency to spend time in bookstores, Polyverse can help you find the right path to get your product on the shelf.

During brainstorming meetings, we discuss genre definitions, marketability, and create a strategy specifically tailored to building your title. With a priority on communication, Polyverse is happy to take a phone call or sit down for a cup of coffee. We even offer optional live design sessions, where we implement requested cover and format changes during the meeting.

We are based in Santa Barbara, and love our local bookstores! In fact, we are active with over 14 retail locations on the West Coast. We also maintain and monitor global sales channels so your title will be available through the Baker & Taylor distribution network.

The Polyverse team is happy to schedule a complimentary consultation to give advice and feedback on the state and potential for your project.

"Thanks so much for your advice and assistance in establishing myself as a local author."

Efren Stat, Author

Guy Galzerano, known by his pen name Efren Stat, was born on the shores of California. Within the great natural magic of the coast, he craved a way to release his thoughts and passions into stories. His first written novel, The Hollows, was written in his mid-20’s. The creation began during a starry night on the top of a creaky Coulter Pine resting on the edge of a grassy bluff.

With his heavy history of smashing and bashing in rugby, he found his body broken and worn. He wrote for a short time Murmurs of the Deep, post-game reviews, and then nozzled into his lifetime career of Stone Masonry and writing novels.

With his first novel, The Hollows, Efren Stat tackles environmental concepts. In a world where men have cut down trees for so long, The Hollows gives the Trees life enough to cut down men.


The Hollows is a riotous clash of living trees, pirates, scoundrels, criminals and crusaders. If you are looking for Harry Potter this isn't it. A celebration of different perspectives in the war for Gaia, and those who guard it, versus the demonic forces that wish to take over.

Through these pages we travel across forests and seas, both real and imaginary, experiencing a tale of dark magic, loss, and the strong bonds of brotherhood. Also there are skeleton gangs, hellhounds, witches, an ancient galaxy of death, and more than just a few battles.

If you are looking for a new flavor of fantasy - The Hollows is it!
