The
greatest inspiration is often born of desperation.
 

One year ago Hannah Quinn scored her dream job, and now the fate of the museum she loves will rise or fall on her next exhibit. But wait…
there’s a problem. She doesn’t have a clue what her next exhibit will be!
When a trunk with two quilts is donated to the museum, Hannah’s boss thinks she’s wasting her time chasing down the history of the quilts,
regardless of their beauty; but Hannah persists. She knows there’s something special about these quilts, and a story that demands to be told.
Little does Hannah know, her friend Callum, a researcher and consultant, plays an unexpected a role in her investigation that leads to
questions and discoveries that threaten the foundation of all she holds most dear.
Will her desperation to discover the story of the quilts cause her to lose the very thing she loves the most – or will the secrets she uncover lead her to more than she ever dreamed?

The Origins of Benjamin Hackett and the family secret

Saturday, March 18th, 2017
The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett
by
Gerald M. O’Connor
Genre:
Coming Of Age
 
All
families have secrets. Most go untold…

 

 


In the summer of
‘96, Benjamin Hackett has come of age, technically. And in the
midst of the celebratory hangover, his world is whipped out from
under his feet. His parents have finally shared their lifelong secret
with him; he’s adopted.
At the age of 18, the boy still has
some growing up to do, and with the help of JJ, his loquacious
consigliore and bodyguard, he embarks on an adventure that’ll put
to bed a lifetime of lies.
Over the course of five days, they
find themselves caught up in the darker side of Cork. But when they
sweep through the misfits blocking their way and finally discover the
truth of it…now that’s the greatest shock of all.

 

The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett

is a tender tale of heartache and displacement told through a wry and
courageous voice. Set in Ireland, it’s a timely reminder that the
world hasn’t moved on just as fast as we fancy. Now, in this
emotionally charged story, Gerald M. O’Connor explores conditioned
guilt and its consequences in a country still hiding from the sins of
its past.

 

 

O’Connor’s
book draws on a time when the Catholic Church in Ireland would
quietly take children from mothers in convents and Magdalene
Laundries and deposit them into new homes, making it nearly
impossible for these kids to find their real parents. Attempts by
children to find their birth parents were often blocked by a dark web
of secrecy and bureaucracy that, in many ways, still continues to
haunt the country today.
Brimming
with unfathomable escapades, a motley crew of characters and a
healthy serving of Irish humor, O’Connor’s book is steeped in
Irish culture told in the inimitable Corkman’s brogue. Set in a
time before the chaos of modern digital culture,
The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett

takes a step back, allowing space for readers to escape and think
about the realities of growing up in a family founded on a lie. In
his stylish debut, O’Connor shows an amazing ability to paint
heartbreak and longing that will keep readers thinking about
The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett

long after they finish the story.

Advance
Praise For
The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett
“‘The
Origins of Benjamin Hackett’ by Gerald O’Connor is a raucous and
riotous coming-of-age story that is brutal, tender and hilarious.”

Paul
D. Brazill, author of A Case of Noir and Guns of Brixton

“O’Connor
doles out killer dialogue that adds oodles of character to this
hero’s journey. Told with the lilt and panache of Joseph O’Connor
and Dermot Bolger in their novels of the ‘90s, Gerald O’Connor is
the new and improved voice we’ve been waiting for.”

Gerard
Brennan, author of Undercover and Wee Rockets

“Visceral
writing that inherits a long Irish tradition. O’Connor’s
narrative contains sharp characterization, and has an assured voice,
while dramatizing conditioned guilt with humor and style.”

Richard Godwin, author of Apostle Rising, Mr. Glamour, One Lost
Summer and others
“If
you’re expecting the usual coming-of-age tale, you’re in for a
big shock. This is a tale big on heart and one which the author,
Gerald O’Connor, has hied religiously to the advice of Harry Crews
for writers, to ‘leave out the parts readers skip.’ None of those
parts remain in these pages. An auspicious debut!”


Les Edgerton, author of The Death of Tarpons, The Bitch, The Genuine,
Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping, Bomb and others

When
Arionna Jacobs loses her mother in a tragic accident, her world is
turned upside down. She’s forced to leave her old life behind and

new college, is torn in two, unable to communicate with the feral
wolf caged inside him.
When they meet, everything they thought

They don’t understand what’s happening to them or why, and they’re
running out of time to sort out the strange occurrences around them.
Their meeting sets an ancient Norse prophesy of destruction
in motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than
either could have ever imagined. Unless they learn to trust
themselves and one another, they may never resolve the mystery
surrounding who they are to one another, and what that means for the
world.

Legion
Lost
By
K.C. Finn
Genre:
Dystopian
 
One
Underground girl escapes from a soldiers’ raid. Lost and above
ground for the very first time, she has only one option to secure her
survival: the Legion—a government organization for teenagers with
no place left to run. Leave your identity at the gate, and join a
life of military service until you reach adulthood. It sounds ideal,
but the Underground girl knows that the System won’t stop looking
for its female runaway. So, she tells a lie about her gender.
And
it will change her forever.
Posing
as Raja, a boy-soldier, the Underground girl is thrown into Legion
life at its full, brutal speed. Here, she meets Senior Commander
Briggs, whose savage authority reigns over the teenage soldiers.
Amongst them are a band of oddballs known as the South Tower Rejects,
led by Stirling, a tall, savvy stranger with bright copper hair and
eyes that shine like oceans. There’s something hiding behind his
cocky smile, and Raja wants to know what it is.

The Undead Must Die or all is lost

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

 

Floriana is a seemingly ordinary art student, until an exciting opportunity to study ancient Greek relics introduces her to long-held secrets and shockingly dangerous truths. 


Her life becomes altogether extraordinary when a seemingly benign morning excursion transforms into an agonizing race across Europe to save humanity. Soon, she must work against the clock to recreate an antidote to save mankind before nostalgic Nazi militias make good on their plan to create a legion of superhuman zombie-soldiers that will wreak havoc on mankind.

As the heir apparent to a family of masterminds, Floriana is the only one capable of thwarting their efforts, but first she’ll come face-to-face with black roses, presumptive killers, and mysterious sects.

With the fate of the world in her hands, can an inexperienced and clumsy art student create an antidote before it’s too late?

Find out in this adrenaline rushing, young adult thrill ride, chock full of espionage, conspiracy theories, spies, and zombies!

The Undead Must Die by Penny Brojacquie is comprised of episodes one and two in the first book of the Order Of The Black Rose Series. It is great reading for anyone who likes adventure with a good plot. The setting is an island in Europe across the Mediterranean sea. Penny gives you a great idea of what it looks like there.

The story tells of an ancient people that is devoted to saving mankind from their own wrongdoings. Like in a great tale, there are other ancient people in it too, but these are the evil doers. The Order of the Black Rose are the good people and they are running out of time to save mankind from becoming mindless zombies with extraordinary physical powers. It takes one bite from an infected person to contaminate another, and there are many waiting to be unleashed on the cities of mankind.

The Order of the Black Rose knows where the paper containing the antidote recipe is and they also know there is only one person who can decipher it, Floriana. Floriana doesn’t know anything about The Order of the Black Rose and, because of the lack of time, they have to kidnap her to keep her from falling into the wrong hands. She can’t believe what they want, because their tale is hard to swallow and she is just an art student; how is she supposed to save the world? To see if she helps or not, you will have to read the book. The Undead Must Die by Penny Brojacquie is a wisp of fresh air in this genre and I enjoyed the clean contemporary story a lot.

Can a Princess be handicapped?

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017
Just in time for Valentines and for your favorite lady, a new clean, young adult, medieval fantasy romance hit the market today. “A Golden Princess,” book three in A Royal Romance Series of Anna del C. Dye is a stand-alone story. You will find an array of characters, fears, love, endurance and heroes, between its pages. Enjoy!

About the book:

Small for her age, Princess Nyala is determined to be noticed and someday rule with fairness and valor in Kaloma. All changes when she looks upon the stars and they predict her accident. After she awakens to a broken body, her father takes to his goblet and she steps into power in her kingdom at sixteen.

Her father said that no man would choose a half-broken princess. Is that how Prince Nicolao sees her after the accident? Her heart is unsure and out of fear she keeps him away to avoid a broken heart.

As soon the other kingdoms in the land determine the predicament of the Royal House of Kaloma, they too will prey on her vulnerability to steal her kingdom. She will have to confront new foes or lose it all.

What other said about the book:

Review by Roseanne Wilkins: A Golden Princess is a story about overcoming hardship and finding true love. This story is a clean romance suitable for pre-teens. I enjoyed the story of love and loss and finding love again through hardship. There aren’t many tales put in a medieval setting that involve strong female characters, especially characters who are physically challenged. Much of the relationship-building between the main characters is told in past perspective after Princess Nyala is injured. Moments are lived through her memories. When Nyala accepts her injuries and moves forward, the story takes off. It was good to read a story where the main character has to face a life very different from what she had planned. I love happily-ever-after’s, and Anna del C. Dye knows how to deliver.

Can a human heart overcome a demon soul?

 

When soul-eating demons overrun his world, Kaelis, a young seraph warrior, uses the Queen’s ring to open a portal in space and flee with the infant heir to the throne, landing on earth. Unbeknownst to him, the demon leader, Nsark, follows through the portal, determined to devour the soul of every last seraph, especially the Queen’s heir. After Kaelis hides the baby, Nsark creates the ultimate weapon by fathering a half-human, half-demon: a soul-stealer’s child. 


 


Sixteen years later, an awkward teen named James struggles to fit in with his peers. In a last-ditch effort, he joins the school play, where he meets Lucy. Something deep draws them together, and their friendship reveals their hidden pasts: one is an angel, one is half-demon. Lucy and James find themselves pulled into an age-old war between their peoples. Hunted by relentless enemies, and grappling with deep-seated instincts and strange new powers, they must fight for their lives, their souls, and each other.

Snippet:
His rich baritone voice crescendoed in a dark laugh, pulling her gaze back to the stage. Backlit by slanted beams of light, his black curls gleamed. Gray eyes blazed so bright they were almost silver. High, sharp cheekbones soared above full, powerful lips. The cape draped over his broad shoulders, following his tapered form to the floor. Something fierce and powerful seethed inside him like a midnight storm. Was it just acting? Or was the role of Dracula opening a window into what was really inside him? Acting or not, something about James called to her.

The amazing adventures of DragonMan

Monday, January 23rd, 2017
 
Intro
to Series
The
amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century,
when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four
passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in
Shanksville Pennsylvania, but into the American certainty that the
horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.
It
was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for
whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is
he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as
a friend there is no one better.

perhaps? Or is this unimaginable journey into the unknown real?

You’re
about to find out when you embark on this unforgettable journey with
DragonMan. A fantasy adventure filled with wizardry and mystery that
carries you away on the wings of magic to bewitching lands, where
goblins dwell, wizards rule and witches still cast their evil spells.
The
story unfolds with the mood of impending danger set early on, as a
likable young teenage hero, Luke Starr, enters a mysterious realm of
Earth known as the mythical world of Spellville, by way of an eerie
portal in search of his kidnapped friends. But the journey for Luke
is not so much a mission of mercy as one of self-discovery. For
despite his humble midwest origins, Luke is no ordinary teenager.
Imbued with super powers following a ritualistic exchange of blood
with a clever dragon, Luke soon discovers the awesome legacy of his
birthright, a dark side of great strength and brutal fury and must
learn to accept the fact that he is known in this other world as The
Chosen One.

Still,
unquestionably human, he must come to grips with what he has now
become, the most violent force in nature, a dragon hybrid, a.k.a.
“DragonMan.” And ready or not, he is thrust into a
nightmarish life and death battle to try and save Planet Earth from
alien beings hell-bent on destruction, at the same time grappling
with his own fears and doubts while always in an inner conflict with
himself trying to keep the violent nature of the dragon in check,
making it a tough road to travel for this teenage boy of strong
morals beliefs.
In
a pace that never flags, Luke and an ancient dragon must now join
together in an epic struggle that is all neatly stitched together by
an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and
not-exactly-as-they-seem, wherein , a mysterious psychic and an
ominous stranger and alien attack on Earth keep the action rolling
until the climactic conclusion.

DragonMan
– The Poseidon Encounter
Book 2
In
Ted Lazaris’s first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the
Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable
Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin.
Luke
was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all the inherent
problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a crush on a girl
he’s too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly poking their noses
into his business, bullies at school and exams to study for.
But
Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far greater weight
than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to terms with his
birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant world of
Spellville.

 

Not
only that, but, like hapless Peter Parker forced to juggle his
complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his love interest and his
not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to harness the enormous
powers of DragonMan, his super alter-ego, a persona that regrettably
did not come with an instruction manual.

 

In
this second, action comic-like installment, DragonMan and the
Poseidon Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy
and appears well in control of his super powers–which he will be
called upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil
demon who seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.

 

The
mood of impending danger is set from the very first page, when author
Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an
opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the
morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped for brand new bicycle as
a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow “washed
up” in the small lake on his parent’s isolated farm.

 

While
many consider the whale’s appearance a hoax, others believe it to be
a sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke’s
suspicions that worse is about to happen–which it does. In a pace
that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex thread of
differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder mystery to a
science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by an
intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and
not-exactly-as-they-seem.

 

An
imaginative writer, Lazaris blends magic, mysticism, religion and the
fast-paced action of the comic book world into a book that fans of
the first DragonMan tale will find hard to put down!

The
War to End All Wars Came Swiftly From East of the Dawn

 
A
series of savage and brutal murders is taking place by a killer that
might not be human. Where did it come from? How did it get here? And
how can it be stopped?

 

The
Order Of The Circle Of Light, a secret brotherhood first discovered
this baffling mix of man and God, in 1970. Now this Son of God, or
Satan is about to proclaim its divinity, through a ritualistic series
of slaying’s.
It’s
goal; wage war one last time to determine who shall rule Heaven and
Earth. To the victor goes the cherished prize … mankind.

In
the bloody heroic war to determine mankind’s fate, blood red
flames, smoke and dust soar high into the grim night sky above two
armies as they engage in mortal combat.

One
hopes and prays they will survive the night, retaining dominion over
their own world. While the other will wage war in ways mankind can
scarcely imagine, in a gruesome fight to end all life on Earth.
Not
only weaponry and blind fear will march into battle on December 24TH.
There will be hope and faith. There will be friendships. There will
be undying love.

But
far more than our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters will fall on
the bitter cold December battlegrounds to determine mankind’s
destiny; shattered dreams, innocence lost, and the very essence of
the human spirit will also become casualties of war, the war to end
all wars.
Can
Luke Starr, aka, DragonMan, a new superhero for our times, figure out
whom this mysterious being really is and stop its relentless threat
to mankind?

Only
time will tell.

The Order
The Order Book 1
by A.C. Donaubauer
Genre: Epic Fantasy
About the Book

A clumsy step, the wrong branch to hold on to and a bump on the head to leave her unconscious – no more than that causes Eryn’s life to turn upside down and to suddenly find herself in the capital city as a prisoner to the king.
She is determined to keep her magical abilities a secret in a kingdom where magicians have only ever been male as long as anyone knows. That doesn’t work out that well, though. The Order, the governing body for magicians, and the king seem to have their own plans with her, none of them caring in the least that she just wants to leave that blasted city behind and return to the peace and quite of her profession as a healer.
And then there is Enric, a high ranking magician in the Order thanks to his considerable strength, who seems to find watching her struggles an amusing diversion.

Commitments
The Order Book 2About the Book
Ram’an has, to Enric’s great relief, left Anyueel again to return to his home country – which leaves him to figure out the challenge that Eryn still presents to him in more than one area of his life.
Eryn is restless, unnerved by the Order’s demands and her own urge to do something useful. Thus an expedition into the woods to teach the herb gatherers in the city how to provide her with acceptable goods seems just the thing to do to pass the time until the new healer’s place is ready for use. Ten peaceful days of collecting plants far away from the city. Or at least that’s the plan.

Even hope has its price

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017
The scarecrow’s evil knows no bounds …

Having failed to save her friends from the scarecrow’s malevolence, Sullyan plunges into despair. Reen holds all the aces and nothing now, it seems, can prevent him from wreaking utter destruction. Nevertheless, she must try one last time, cast her life away if necessary, to avenge her loved ones. She marshals her forces and marches on Bordenn.
 

 

Yet Reen has usurped the power of a Master Artesan, and knows everything Robin once knew. Luring Sullyan to Bordenn is his only desire. The scarecrow squats in his lair, avid for Sullyan’s power, holding one final bargaining chip to force her into surrender. Her only glimmer of hope lies in a vague reference contained in the ancient diary of a long-dead Supreme Master—that, and a whispered message from a familiar spirit.
Yet even hope has its price, and life demands life in return.

1.      What inspired your book?

King’s Envoy, my first novel and the start of the entire triple-trilogy Artesans of Albia series, was inspired by a 1970s children’s TV show called “Tarot, Ace of Wands.” Tarot was a magician who used his special talents to solve crime, and this got me wondering what it would be like to be born with a special talent or power, especially if there was no one to teach you how to use it. This thought triggered a little scene in my head, which became the scene where my main male character, Taran, meets Major Sullyan for the first time.

2.      How do you spend your free time?

I have two rescue Lurcher dogs, Milly and Milo, so I love going for country walks. I also love gardening and have a large collection of unusual cacti. Singing is another love of mine and I have written and recorded some folk-style songs that appear in my books. They can be found on my website, www.caspeace.com

3.      What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you defeat it?

Confidence that my writing is any good. I always write for myself, so having the confidence to show it to other people is a struggle. I’m always surprised when complete strangers like or identify with my writing, and that gives me a huge boost. All the lovely reviews I’ve received for my Artesans series, plus emails from fans, helped me overcome that initial lack of confidence. Now I just write what I want and don’t worry so much about whether it’s “good” right from the start. I know I can always edit and improve.

4.      When did you first realize you were an author?

I never intended to become an author, I was only writing as a hobby, so I guess it was when I decided I had to take the plunge and show my first “real” piece of writing to my husband. He read it and really loved it, despite not being a fan of fantasy novels, and that gave me the confidence to send it out to agents and publishers. Although I received many rejections before finding my first publisher, I also received much encouragement and many personally-written comments. That’s when I realized these writing professionals were treating me as a serious author.

Many thanks for your interest – I hope you will enjoy my Artesans series!

Cas Peace.

Snippet:
Courtney stopped abruptly as the scatterings of a cave-in came into view. “Oh no,” she whispered, one hand to her mouth. Moving slowly, she noticed a body slumped in the hallway. “Please don’t be dead,” she said over and over again as she moved closer. She couldn’t help but wonder which of her friends lay there, and what had happened to the other.

The closer she came, the more detail came to light. She recognized Tyler Durand as he lay on his side. His light-colored hair lay limp against his head. His skin was unnaturally pale. At least she didn’t think he was dead. It took a lot to kill a dragon. But just beyond him, a little more out of the way, lay Anwen Porter. And she wasn’t moving.

Christmas Countdown Blitz — Caitlyn’s Christmas Wish

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

 

Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time Laura was young, ideas for stories bombarded her brain. She would spend hours drawing her characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when Laura met her own hero while at college in northern Arizona and they later became the parents of six children. In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. Laura is the author of two LDS contemporary romances, Pierced by Love and The Matchup. Caitlyn’s Christmas Wish is her first e-novella.

 

Q & A With The Author:

1.  Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
 
To the average person, I might seem quiet and shy. But once you
get to know me, you’ll discover I have an opinion on most everything. I like
solitude and time for reflection. I love creative writing and fun sewing
projects. And only my family knows that I like to sing
.
 
 
2. What do you love most in the world?
 
My family and faith.

What Caitlyn isn’t prepared for, however, is the spark of attraction she feels for Ridge, Grant’s older brother, or the sense of belonging to their wonderful family once again. Ridge, who is recovering from his own personal heartache, seems to feel the same about her. As they work together to ensure the success of the Winter Festival that his parents have organized for their small Wyoming town, Caityln begins to envision a bright future. But will Grant’s unexpected arrival keep her Christmas wish from coming true?

Snippet:
Glancing over at Caitlyn, Ridge was surprised to see that her smile had faltered. “What’s the frown for?”   
“Who said I’m frowning?”
She lifted the corners of her mouth again but Ridge wasn’t fooled. “I know what I saw. What’s going on inside that pretty head of yours?” Her silence prompted him to repeat, “Caitlyn?”
He hoped by turning his attention back to the interstate that she would feel comfortable enough to answer. He was right.
“I don’t mind helping your parents out. They have worked so hard to put this festival together. Last night, I caught a glimpse of the toll it has taken on your mom. And frankly, all of you have helped me so much to conquer my addiction to diet pills and my eating disorder and feel like a normal human being again that I couldn’t possibly refuse.”
Ridge silently acknowledged the truth of her statement. Even before Caitlyn had married Grant,
she’d been a walking stick. Turned out she was fighting an eating disorder that had developed from her mother’s efforts to control her weight in order to procure top modeling spots through the best agents in the business. “I’m glad my parents got you into rehab when they did. It could have ended badly.” Caitlyn
finally hit rock bottom when she discovered that she was pregnant just after she and Grant divorced. That was when his parents decided to intervene.
“Yes. It wasn’t an easy road. Without their support, I wouldn’t have a healthy little boy. I might not even have survived much longer. I got down to a horrifying one hundred and three pounds.”
Ridge remembered how thin she’d been, remembered warning Grant that she needed help. Grant hadn’t appreciated his interference. Ridge might not know what it was like to go through an addiction on top of an eating disorder, but he knew what it was like to be so mired in guilt that personal care no longer mattered. He’d seen Caitlyn’s destructive tendencies for what they were—a cry for help.
Caitlyn had worked hard to become physically and mentally healthy once again, which took the better part of her pregnancy to accomplish. “You should be proud of yourself.”

Shadows of Atlantis
Awakening
By Mara Powers
Genre: FantasyAbout the Book
Atlantis is a luxurious paradise run by crystal technology built in alignment with nature. For thousands of years, Atlanteans have powered their cities with a Crystal Grid fed by psychic mindlight.
But the Grid has been infiltrated by parasitic shadows that feed off the negative emotions of humans – an epidemic called “the madness.”
D’VINID, a dejected musician, is consumed by his personal problems. He meets Brigitte as she seeks to uncover the corruption in the Grid. Their magnetic attraction forces him to face his past and accept his future. He is among those born with a gene unlocking mystical powers once believed to be the birthright of all humans.
As Atlantis slowly drowns in the trap of hubris and self-indulgence, he is faced with the shocking realization that his life may be mirroring Atlantis itself – he must choose to awaken or face destruction.
