I
was never that child you found in the corner reading. In fact, I
loathed the idea of picking up a book. The activity seemed more of a
chore than a past time.
All that changed when my brother began talking to me about the
newest novel he was reading.Harry Potter and The Order of the
Phoenix. 
Before I knew it, my curiosity got the better of
me, luring me to try the series. It didn’t take long for my mindset
of reading to turn on its head.
But even with my new hobby discovered it wasn’t until my junior
year of college that I developed a hidden desire for writing stories.
And when I found myself writing scenes instead of paying attention to
my professors, I knew becoming a writer was the career path I was
meant to follow.

The
Unblessed Dead
The
Hidden Necromancer Series Book 1
by
Rhiannon Frater
Genre:
YA Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy
 
When
I was younger, my mother saved my settlement from the Unblessed Dead
that would have killed us all. It cost her everything to reveal her
necromancy and sent shockwaves through our stringent religious
settlement. Convicted of heresy against our sacred Lost Texts, she
died soon after. 

 

Since
then, I have worked hard to maintain my Pious Standing so that when I
turn eighteen I will be selected by a suitable husband at the Bridal
Auction. 

 

As
the large clock in town square ticks down to my eighteenth birthday,
the dead have been appearing in my garden. If I’m discovered, I’ll
face the Necromancer Trial just as my mother, oldest sister, and I
did all those years ago. This time I fear I will not survive it.

 

To
add to my worries, an enigmatic handsome young man has arrived in the
settlement. Around him swirls a green aura only I can see. Is he here
to help me? Or does he have more nefarious plans?

 

My
name is Ilyse Nott, and I fear I am a necromancer.

 

If
I am, my life is over.

 

 
 
The
Accused Dead
The
Hidden Necromancer Series Book 2
 
According
to the Lost Texts, the sins of the mother are laid on the shoulders
of her female children 

 

My
mother was a necromancer and the shadow of her conviction and death
blots out my hard work to be considered Pious Standing in the very
religious settlement where I live. 

 

Though
I’ve been exonerated through the Necromancer Trial, there are those
who are convinced that I am a heretic, a devil-woman, someone who
should be exiled, or worse, killed. I have to escape and my only hope
is for Quade to win my hand at the Bridal Auction.

CUSP OF NIGHT
Hode’s Hill
#1

 

by
Mae Clair
Genre: Thriller/Suspense

 

Pub
Date:
6/12/2018
 

 

The truth hides in dark places…
Recently settled in Hode’s Hill,
Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore,
especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like
creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific
murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the
past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual
“Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of
the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone
dressed like the Fiend.
Compelled to discover who is behind the
attack and why, Maya uncovers a shortlist of enemies of the Hode
clan. The mystery deepens when she finds the journal of a late
nineteenth-century spiritualist who once lived in Maya’s house—a
woman whose ghost may still linger. Known as the Blue Lady of Hode’s
Hill due to a genetic condition, Lucinda Glass vanished without a
trace and was believed to be one of the Fiend’s tragic victims. The
disappearance of a young couple, combined with more sightings of the
monster, trigger Maya to join forces with Leland’s son Collin. But
the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she comes to a hidden
world of twisted secrets, insanity, and evil that refuses to die…
Mae Clair opened a Pandora’s
Box of characters when she was a child and never looked back. Her
father, an artist who tinkered with writing, encouraged her to create
make-believe worlds by spinning tales of far-off places on summer

Isaac
Comett: My Life as a Shard Knight
by
R.T. Driver
Genre:
YA SciFi Fantasy
 
It’s
2003, and the coldest of seasons has arrived, filled with monsters,
robots and dead beat dads.

 

 

Isaac
believed his only job was to blow off homework, play video games and
get a date with his crush, the cunning local delinquent June Farnell;
not defend his hometown from vicious space pirates!

 

 

On
one Fall afternoon, he and his friends are attacked by aliens seeking
the Memorite Shards; crystals that grant the user superpowers. His
comfortable life with his mom and younger brother is gone, and he’s
forced to fight a secret war against the merciless Cyborg, Straum.
Even when they gain the shard’s protection, more questions about
their unyielding attackers arise, and their only source for answers
is another shady alien, and fellow Memorite user, Chenzo.

 

 

Lying
to his mom and swinging a sword become Isaac’s new life as he, June
and the others train to become Shard Knights; defenders of the
Memorite. Unfortunately for him, he’s the team’s weakest link, and
surviving the one year bonding period to the crystal seems less
likely with each battle. And what’s worse, his estranged father Zack
is back in town after a year long hiatus, ready to “set things
right”…again.

 

 

Will
Isaac defeat Straum’s army of mechanical warriors, save his family
and live long enough to put on his graduation cap, or will Comett
burn out like so many others before him?

 

 

Join
Isaac, June, the slick talking Austin, his brainy beauty girlfriend
Emma, and the comic-book obsessed Fiora in this epic sci-fi rumble
and see what being a hero is REALLY all about!

 

 

-Realistic
characters of different races and backgrounds that deal with true to
life issues, such as school drama, dating, divorced parents and
neglect.

 

 

-No
lengthy, needless descriptions make for a satisfying
read.

 

 

-Immersive,
over-the-top action influenced by video games, anime, and science
fiction movies while seasoned with emotional encounters throughout.
Feel like a part of a super hero team!

towards…young adults, I…couldn’t put it down! I definitely
recommend this suspenseful book to everyone who enjoys a good read.”
-Mrs. Wygant

 

 
 
Isaac
Comett: Interstellar Warrior
 
Isaac,
June, Austin and the others are halfway through their bonding period
with the powerful Memorite Crystals, but their adventure is far from
over.

 

 

Fighting
Androids and Seekers has become second nature to the team, but their
unity is put to the test when personal feelings from a bad breakup
get in the way of being heroes. With graduation only weeks away,
their parents growing suspicious of their activities, and two of the
warriors ready to rip each other’s heads off, it seems like things
couldn’t get worse…

 

 

But
they do.

 

 

Isaac
and the others depart for the world of Rudesia to Recall the
remaining Shards. There’s no rest for the tired friends, as not only
do they have a rich, stuck-up Count on their tails, but complications
from a new, less welcome addition to their group.

 

 

The
chance for an early freedom and end to the Memorite War has come!
Will Isaac’s emotional wounds heal in time, or will they lead to a
deathblow for the Shard Knights?

 

 

-Picks
up after My Life as a Shard Knight

 

 

-Inspired
by Video Games, Anime and Manga

 

 

-Crazy
sci-fi action throughout!

 

 

-Addresses
issues of change, what makes a healthy relationship, and the
consequences of greed and violence

Guardian’s
Nightmare
The
Last Princess of Latura Book 1
by
Darren Simon
Genre:
Middle-Grade/New Adult Fantasy
 
Charlee
Smelton is an average thirteen-year-old girl struggling to adapt
after her family moves to San Francisco. She thinks her biggest
obstacle is facing the bullies who brand her a nerd and a dweeb.
She’s wrong. Her life is about to change—for the worse. First,
she receives a gift of the ugliest, most old fashioned bike she has
ever seen. Try as she might to ditch it in the city, she just can’t
seem to escape that very mysterious two-wheeler. Then come the
visions of a world across a dimensional divide, a princess in fear
for her life and a dark knight pursuing her. Are they just dreams or
something more? For Charlee, everything she ever thought she knew
about herself soon crumbles as she starts down a path to discover her
true self, and she will need that hunk-of-junk bike more than she
could ever imagine. Without it, she might not be able to find the
hero in herself—the hero she must become to save her friends,
family, her city—the world—from an evil only she can defeat. An
evil she allows into this world.
 
 
Guardian’s Return
The Last Princess of
Latura Book 2
 
A
month has passed since fourteen-year-old Charlee Smelton discovered
her magical abilities and faced her great aunt, Theodora, in a life
or death struggle to protect Earth. A month has passed since she
tricked Theodora back across the dimensional gateway that brought
Theodora to Earth. Since then, Charlee—now fully aware that she is
part of a noble bloodline from another world…another dimension…has
grown stronger in her magic, aided by her protector, a shapeshifter
sent to Earth to protect her.
But
the terrible dreams won’t stop.
Theodora
lives, and if Charlee’s dreams of death and fields of spilled blood
are true, her great aunt has avenged herself on that world across the
dimensional divide. 
Charlee
knows what she must do. The fight is not over. She must travel across
the gateway to the home of her ancestors and face Theodora one more
time. But doing so may cost Charlee more than her life. The same
medallion her great aunt desires so much—a medallion Charlee
possesses—could make her just as evil as her great aunt. 
Can
Charlee stave off the twisted tendrils of the medallion long enough
to defeat Theodora—for good—or will evil consume her? Can she
even survive so far from home? Her only hope may rest in the Lord of
the Dragons, but that beast turned his back on her grandfather long
ago…

 

 
 
Darren
Simon resides in Southern California where he works as a college
English teacher after a career as a newspaper journalist. His love
for writing began with a love for reading when his grandmother gave
him a wonderful gift—a brown paper bag filled with comic books from
the 1960s and ’70s. From there, he moved on to Choose Your Own
Adventure
books. Eventually he discovered the works of J.R.R.
Tolkien, which solidified his interest in writing epic fantasy and
science fiction tales.
So
far, he has focused his writing on middle grade and young adult
fiction to inspire young readers just as he was inspired to read and
write at a young age.
He
self-published his first novel though iUniverse and immediately went
on to write the second book in the series. Upon completing the second
book, he decided to seek more traditional publishing. After countless
rejection letters, a small independent publisher—Divertir
Publishing—decided to pick up the series, a fantasy about a
teen-aged girl who learns her family is actually from an alternate
