Medieval
Madness
Mr.
Willifred’s Great Adventures Book 1
by
Jessica Sara Campbell
Genre:
YA Fantasy, Time Travel

through time is not for everyone, and it’s definitely not Susan and
Freddy’s idea of a fun ride. Their adventurous granddaughter Sylvia,
though, would be happy just to do something new for a change already,
anything! 

 

 

Travel
back in time to medieval London with the Willifred family on a
heart-warming adventure of history, excitement, humor, and love. Meet
the real heroes of the medieval era, some who you may not have heard
about, and some you might know well! Watch history come to life in
this action-packed saga.

 

 

As
Sylvia discovers, medieval London may not be as glamorous as it
appears in the movies, and there may even be someone up to no good
behind the scenes. No one ever said old age is easy, and no one ever
said being a teen is easy. Join Freddy, Susan, and Sylvia on a
jam-packed ride of a lifetime, for they might find more than they are
expecting in their typical weekday routine this time…

Quinnipiac Disappearance
Tawnee
Mountain Mysteries Book 7
by
Lee Tidball
 
Down
in South Jersey, you got your Jersey Devil and the Pine Barrens.
Up here, we got E.T.s and Quinnipiac.”

So
says Alan Riddiak, NSA field agent Jake Farrister’s friend, as they
rent kayaks at Quinnipiac Reservoir, site of what locals say was the
most credible mass sighting of a UFO in human history, and just miles
from the swanky Tawnee Mountain Resort, where Alan’s boss, revered
Senator Grant Bilson of New Jersey, is on an August recess
retreat.

Ok…”
smirks Jake.

But
smirks turn to shock when two bizarre disappearances and an attempted
murder suck the rest out of the retreat, and Senator Bilson
commissions Jake to solve the mysteries.

Jake
finds nothing but frustration, though, until he finally concedes what
quirky new friend Nikki Hayes has told him all along; when it comes
to Quinnipiac, the only explanations are inexplicable, the only
believable witnesses are unbelievable, and in order to stop the
world-shattering plot at the heart of the mysteries, Jake must do
what he thought was unthinkable—and hope he’s not too late.

Phoenix, AZ for 20+ years with my husband Tim, I found the urban
wilderness to be endlessly fascinating. Our home was tucked up
against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal
that ran across the base of the mountain provided inspiration
for painting, drawing, and writing with sitings of wild
coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards, constant
change…and stories of life and death. In December 2017, we moved to
a beach in Florida, which is whole ‘nother story!

In
the Beginning…

 

Believing
wasn’t always a crime. 

 

 

 

Faith in God wasn’t always
illegal. 

 

 

 

In the glory days of the Old World, there were
many who lived out their faith in full view of all, and taught their
children, and their children’s children about God, their beloved
Creator.

 

 

In those days, prayer was still allowed in
schools, church was still held on Sundays with picnics and family get
togethers afterward, and the spare change that jangled in everyone’s
pockets still carried the words ‘In God We Trust’.

 

 

Then
the God Wars happened. Life was never the same again.

 

 

This
is a prequel. It’s highly recommended to read the Unbelief Trilogy
first.

C.B.
Stone is sometimes called author, writer, or purveyor of stories. One
might even dub her a yarn spinner if you will. It’s very possible she
might be considered just a little left of normal by most, but she’s
cool with that. Really, she’s too busy avoiding normal to care. On
any given day, you might find Stone pounding away at a keyboard in
sunny Florida, contemplating waves, contemplating life and dreaming
up more exciting stories to share with readers. 

 

 

Except
Sunday’s of course. Sunday’s are God’s day, so you’ll often find her
making her best “joyful noise” with her local church praise
team. When not pounding poor fingers to bloody nuggets and
reinventing the definition of eye strain, C.B. Stone enjoys living it
up, doing the family thing, the kid thing, and the friend thing. And
in her downtime, reading the minds of fans.

 

 

Also
being invisible. Being invisible is fun.

Fantasy, Magic Realism

pages
 
Rosewood
Manor has been ashes for weeks.

 

 


Left
with no post and no home, Anne Tinning never expected to find herself
in a luxurious carriage, dressed in the finest of clothes, pretending
to be the wife of Lord August Grey. The search for Miss Bellingham,
however, will require them to blend into the very height of London
society, a class Anne has only ever served, and which August
despises. But August insists that the ruse is the only way. For
although they’ve vanquished the wraith that called for August’s
life, they will never be safe unless they find a way to stop the
woman he scorned.

 

 

There
are traces of Lily Bellingham the length and breadth of London, but
when Anne and August investigate the gruesome disappearances in a
factory she has just purchased, they realize that Lily is more
powerful than either of them. And she has devised a new way to take
her revenge.

 

 

With
another curse placed upon August’s head, Anne must find a way to
defeat Lily, and this time, she will have no help from the young man
she has grown to love. This time, the curse is more insidious,
twisting him into someone unrecognizable.

 

 

This
time, August Grey is the one she must fear.

 

 

Lush,
lyrical, and layered in horror-filled suspense, Of Bells and Thorns
evokes the feel of classic Gothic literature, blending the magic of a
beautiful fairy tale against the rich backdrop of history.

The
day Anne Tinning turns seventeen, birds fall from the sky. But that’s
hardly the most upsetting news. She’s being dismissed from the home
she’s served at since she was a child, and shipped off to become the
newly hired parlor maid for a place she’s never heard of. And when
she sees the run-down, isolated house, she instantly knows
why:

 

 

There’s
something wrong with Rosewood Manor.

 

 

Staffed
with only three other servants, all gripped by icy silence and
inexplicable bruises, and inhabited by a young master who is as cold
as the place itself, the house is shrouded in neglect and thick with
fear. Her questions are met with hushed whispers, and she soon finds
herself alone in the empty halls, left to tidy and clean rooms no one
visits.

 

 

As
the feeling of being watched grows, she begins to realize there is
something else in the house with them–some creature that stalks the
frozen halls and claws at her door. A creature that seems intent on
harming her.

 

 

When
a fire leaves Anne trapped in the manor with its Master, she finally
demands to know why. But as she forces the truth about what haunts
the grounds from Lord Grey, she learns secrets she isn’t prepared
for. The creature is very real, and she’s the only one who can help
him stop it.

 

 

Now,
Anne must either risk her life for the young man she’s grown to
admire, or abandon her post while she still can.

learn the importance of opening up and asking for support in all its

immortal controls amazing powers of Nature, like fire, or elements of
Humanity, such as fear.

LORD OF
THE SEAS
Viking
Lords #3
by
Sabrina Jarema

 

Genre: Historical Romance


Pub
Date: 8/8/2017
 

 

The Vikings
roamed and raided the known world, always returning to their
beautiful, sacred realm. Now, a young Christian woman is forced into
this land—by a Viking lord with a secret he dares not reveal . . .
From
Istanbul to Ireland, Rorik of Vargfjell is legendary for the battles
he has fought, the wealth he has amassed, and the women he has loved.
So when a Northumbrian Earl refuses to pay tribute, and even burns
one of Rorik’s ships, the Viking seizes the earl’s daughter—and
will hold her for ransom. Or so was his plan.
At home in
Northumbria, Elfwynn had experienced agonizing losses—including the
peaceful world she was born into. Now she stands face to face with a
towering, chiseled Viking in his wondrous kingdom. With her gift of
music, her unworldly beauty and strange courage, Elfwynn will prove
to be very different than any woman Rorik has known. And for a man
who lords over sea and land, what she demands will be the greatest
challenge of all . . .

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub. Date: 12/19/2017
 
A
labor of love…
Seraphina
Fawkes is ready to make her mark on the Little Rock design industry
as Gallagher Interiors’ new lead on Tanbee House—a coveted
historic restoration project. But the job’s biggest perk might be
her handsome boss, Grant Gallagher. Grant shares Seraphina’s
straightforward, no-nonsense demeanor, so she’s surprised when he
hires an old adversary who was suspected of involvement in a drug
ring. Though Grant seems intent on giving him a chance, she’ll keep
a close watch on anything that could jeopardize the project—or her
growing partnership with Grant.
Getting
what he wants—even at others’ expense—never used to be
difficult for Grant, but sexy, stubborn Seraphina tests his resolve.
Though deception is necessary to maintain his covert investigation
into the crime syndicate plaguing the city, Grant knows that the
longer he hides the truth, the more destructive it will be when
revealed. Will Seraphina still trust Grant, and their intense
connection, after she finds out their foundation is built on secrets?

Rosinanti
The
Rosinanti Series Book 1
by
Kevin J Kessler
Genre:
Fantasy
 
The
Rosinanti Dragons are no more. Since their extinction nearly one
thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the
obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have
come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one
horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim
its lost world.
For
Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the
details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more
than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic
conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought
regarding his own past.
As
the awful truth of the Rosinanti’s supposed demise comes to light,
Valentean must stand together with Seraphina, a magically gifted
princess, to embark upon a mission to maintain order and light
throughout Terra. Only together can these two lifelong friends face
down the resurgence of the Rosinanti legacy, and combat the greatest
threat their world has ever known.

The Decimation of Casid
A
Rosinanti Novella, Book 1.5
 
While
an entire world away, men turn into dragons and ancient magic ignites
the air, Casid lived on in peaceful ignorance. This tiny village and
its people existed outside of the conflict which threatened to
swallow Terra, until the day chaos itself landed upon its shores.
Now,
one lone warrior seeks to protect his family, his friends, and the
woman he loves as demons rise from the flames to burn everything he
has ever loved to ash. This man is no god, no fundamental force of
nature. He is simply a man, alone against the fury of chaos.
Casid
will be decimated, consumed by the same blaze which threatens to
overtake all of Terra. But what will rise from the ashes of this once
perfect haven, forged in the fires of tragedy and loss, might become
the most fearsome opponent the darkness has ever known.

combat the greatest threat the world of Terra has ever known.
But
when they find themselves separated, with the entire world turned
against them, both princess and animus warrior must battle not only
the forces of chaos and darkness that seek to end their world, but
their own crippling doubts and fears.
Valentean
must also face the horrifying truth of himself. He is one of the last
surviving members of the Rosinanti race, and holds within him
world-destroying power, and the unwanted uncontrollable ability to
transform into a fearsome dragon.
The
struggle of man vs beast is not limited to the battlefield. Valentean
will wage that war internally, within the confines of his own
conflicted heart.
But,
in the end, who is stronger? The man, or the dragon?

exciting. Rebirth is the first book in her Teen Urban Fantasy, the
Tattooed Angels Trilogy, where the main character struggles with
social issues with the complications of turning immortal. And if
fantasy isn’t your cup of tea, head over to her Blog for some “Val,

Kramer, USMC, and his faithful four-footer partner, Sgt. Shadow,

(An Eye For an Eye)
Kramer
and Shadow Book 3
A
woman out for revenge. America took her husband. America will pay
10,000 fold!

 

Only
Kramer and his Anatolian Shepherd, Shadow, stand in her way. But
will they be enough to stop her?
 
 
 
 
 
 
The
advent of retirement opened a whole new world to me and now that it
has come to pass, I am turning my artistic bent from graphic design
and illustration to that of writing.
To
date I have published three books, KILLING SOFTLY (an erotic mystery
thriller), and begun an action crime series centered on two
characters, Captain Kramer, USMC and his Anatolian Shepherd dog, Sgt.
Shadow, USMC. Book One of the series is THE PITS, Book Two is YOU CAN
RUN, and at the time of this bibliography rewrite, I am working on
Book Three, LEX TALIONIS.

 

The
Kramer and Shadow series is an action, adventure, crime thriller
series that encompasses the world and has our two Marines fighting
hard against organized crime at many levels – but always involving
do-or-die confrontations.

 

My
hope is to establish a fan base for my writing so that my readers can
have an active role in helping me grow and develop as an author in
the years to come. I invite you to join me in this adventure.
