curse, and wolf. We all have a hero inside. All it takes is to
believe. Cara knew the legends of her village but she never thought
she’d become one.

Hi
all, I’m
Jessi
Mcpherson
.
I live in a small town in Iowa right on the banks of The Mighty
Mississippi. I started writing when I was about 10 years old. Almost
every girl has a journal but I not only had fun stories of the day
but poems and short stories that popped in my head. I love fantasy
and romance novels and read almost daily. I like to find my
inspiration in everyday life. That’s one of my goals is to find one
thing every day that inspires me. I grew up an army brats so I have
traveled to a few places over the years. I have two amazing children
and a very amazing husband. They thankfully put up with crazy work
schedules because being a mom and a writer isn’t enough but I am also
the general manager of Sidelines Sports bar in my home town. No
matter how busy I find time for it all. I do hope you enjoy my books
and I look forward to writing more.

There are other kinds of magic in the world—like red-hot first kisses, secret glances, and falling truly, madly, inconveniently in love

Don’t
Call Me Cupcake
The
Holloway Girls #1
by
Tara Sheets
Genre:
Supernatural Romance
 
Most
families have a favorite recipe or two, handed down through
generations. The Holloway women are a little different. Emma
Holloway, like her grandmother before her, bakes wishes into her
delicious cupcakes, granting the recipient comfort, sweet dreams, or
any number of good things. It’s a strange gift, but it brings only
happiness. Until gorgeous, smooth-talking newcomer Hunter Kane
strolls into her shop, Fairy Cakes—and Emma makes the mistake of
selling him not one, but 
three Sweet
Success cupcakes. 

 

 

 

Hunter,
it turns out, is opening a fancy new restaurant and bakery right on
the waterfront—Emma’s competition. To make matters worse, the
town committee has decided to split the upcoming summer festival
contract between the two, forcing Emma to work with her nemesis. But
she can’t afford to split her profits. The solution: create a
recipe that will make Hunter leave town permanently.

 

 

The
Holloway charms are powerful. But there are other kinds of magic in
the world—like red-hot first kisses, secret glances, and the
feeling that comes with falling truly, madly, inconveniently

 

in
love . . .

French
Privateer, Captain
 Drago
Gamponetti 
is
given one final mission from his employer, the king of France:

instructed to steal.

60 British warships have amassed in Negril Bay, Jamaica, preparing to
attack New Orleans. He must retrieve the sacred relics before the
British arrive and seize the city.
Novitiate
nun and healer,

door nine years ago. When an old enemy re-surfaces and threatens to
drag her back into the dark underworld from where she’d escaped,
both she and her dark pirate captain stand to lose everything they’ve
fought so hard to protect…including each other.
Either

sends him to the guillotine, the other straight to hell.

pirates, wrapped up in women’s action and adventure sea stories. If

~Award-Winning
Author~ Chloe Flowers writes historical women’s action and
adventure romance novels about scoundrels, pirates, and spunky,
independent heroines. She likes to challenge her characters by
tossing them the middle of actual historical events, or with real
historical characters. 
 

 

Chloe
is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Northeast Ohio Romance
Writers and The Beau Monde Romance Writers group, where she serves as
secretary. In 2011, she formed the Sunshine Critique Group so that
she and other aspiring authors could motivate and challenge each
other to become better writers. Six members have been published. She
has given workshops and presentations on creating a critique group,
how to provide effective critiques, story structure, and
self-publishing lessons to writers groups, library patrons and
children. In 2014, she started her own small publishing company,
Flowers & Fullerton. Currently, she’s the publisher of record
for authors Sheridan Jeane, H.O. Knight as well as herself.

 

 

 

Whether
it’s dancing naked in a downpour at 3AM, zip-lining in a
rainforest, or racing ponies, Chloe’s always looking for the next
adventure. Her pets have always been named after favorite characters
or action heroes: Indiana, Luke, Gimli, Thelma, Rocket, Forrest, Al
Giordino, Severus, Mushu, Mérida, Gibbs, Jack…Dead Pool (he’s a
goldfish).

 

 

 

Chloe’s
biggest fault is her apparent inability to say “no” whether it’s
in response to a call for aid or a double-dog-dare to hike home
through 30 acres of a snow-covered forest at midnight…during a full
moon. It was early morning during said adventure when she came upon a
group of sheriff’s deputies searching for a lost girl. So, of
course she offered to help. Turns out, they were searching for
her. 

 

 

 

In
addition to her addiction to adrenaline, she has a weakness for good
red wine, dark chocolate and brown-eyed guys with beards, which is
probably why she digs pirates and treasure hunters and writes about
action and adventure, pirates and romance (which is the greatest
adventure of all).

Run Amok
An
Abracadabra Mystery Book 3
by
Sharon Pape
Genre:
Cozy Paranormal Mystery
The
answer to whodunit may lie beyond the veil . . .

 

 

 

November
in upstate New York can be chilly, but Kailyn Wilde’s shop,
Abracadabra, is a cozy respite where you can find lotions, potions,
and plenty of warm, feline company. But what customers don’t know
is that the proprietor has some unusual powers—and unusual friends,
including the renowned magician Merlin, who’s been transported into
the modern world. All of which comes in handy when there’s a murder
to be solved . . .

 

 

Investigative
journalist Ryan Cutler has perished in a car accident in New Camel,
and his friend, Travis, suspects foul play—especially when the
reporter’s notes reveal a mysterious list of dead men’s names.
Kailyn wants to help, but she’s also got her hands full with the
curmudgeonly Merlin, who’s not exactly maintaining a low profile.
Between keeping the wizard under wraps and mixing up cold remedies
that work like magic, she’ll have to tap into her many talents to
figure out a killer’s fatal formula . . .

That

An
Abracadabra Mystery Book 2
 
It’s
time to work her crime-solving magic again . . .

 

 

Kailyn
Wilde enjoys running her shop, Abracadabra, in the quaint New York
hamlet of New Camel, where she lives with her six cats. Her family’s
been here for centuries, and she’d like to keep up the tradition.
But the place may never be the same if a big hotel gets built, so she
does her civic duty and attends a town meeting along with her aunt
Tilly . . . and Merlin. Yes, 
that Merlin—though
he gets introduced to folks as her “distant English cousin.” The
wizard is pretty grumpy about being transported here, but there are
things about the modern world he doesn’t mind—like pizza.

 

 

Kailyn
was prepared for a heated debate about the hotel, but she wasn’t
expecting murder. When Tilly finds the body of a board member outside
the schoolhouse, Kailyn doesn’t want any suspicion cast on the
wrong person. She plans to crack this case, even if she has to talk
to every living soul in town—plus a few departed ones . . .

C.
J. Rose lives in Central Illinois. Originally from just south of
Chicago, Rose is not married and has no children. The passion for
writing took root in high school where she began writing song lyrics
and poetry. On top of literature, Rose has a keen love for all things
nerdy and sci-fi. On a quiet night, you can find her curled up with
an episode or Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, and more. C. J. also
belongs to a theatre organization located in her town. The devotion
to musicals and theatre has led her to be a part of over 10 shows as
an actress, and over 20 as a staff person. Lastly, because she wasn’t
busy enough, C. J. has her own bow company where she sells hair bows,
bowties, scarves, lip balms, key fobs and more.

 

 

 

When it comes
to her writing, it was an itch that needed to be scratched. While
working on a cookbook, and reading her typical fantasy fiction novel,
the idea came to her. She took the love of all the books she has read
and turned then into a novel of her own. Published by Burning Horse
Media in 2014, Generation Son: Bridge of the Gods was born. Selling
over 100 copies in the first month. In 2015, Rose finished penning
the second novel in the series; To Rescue a King. Being new to the
game, Rose has struggled to do most of it on her own. One thing she
vows, is to never give up.
The focus of the novel series is to
not only bring her fantasy and ideas to life, but take those stories
and make them a fun learning experience for the younger generation.

A DARK PATH
Series: Katrina Williams #3
by Robert E. Dunn
Genre: Mystery/Thriller
Pub Date: 8/7/2018
Sheriff’s detective Katrina “Hurricane” Williams confronts deep-rooted hate
and greed in the Missouri Ozarks in this riveting police procedural…
What at first appears to be a brush fire in some undeveloped bottom land
yields the charred remains of a young African-American man. As
sheriff’s Katrina Williams conducts her in-spection of the crime
scene, she discovers broken headstones and disturbed open graves in a
forgotten cemetery.
As Katrina attempts to sort out a complex backwoods criminal network
involving the Aryan Brotherhood, meth dealers, and the Ozarks
Nightriders motorcycle gang, she is confronted by the sudden
appearance of a person out of her own past who may be involved. And
what seems like a clear-cut case of racially motivated murder is
further complicated by rumors of hidden silver and dark family
histories. To uncover the ugly truth, Katrina will need to dig up
past crimes and shameful secrets that certain people would kill to
keep buried . . .
A PARTICULAR DARKNESS
Katrina Williams Book 2
Pub Date: 9/12/2017
From the author of A Living Grave comes a gripping police procedural
featuring sheriff’s detective Katrina Williams as she exposes the
dark underbelly of Appalachia . . .
Dredging up the Truth
Still recovering from tragedy and grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war
veteran and sheriff’s detective Katrina Williams copes the only way
she knows how—by immersing herself in work. A body’s just been
pulled from the lake with a fish haul, but what seems like a
straight-forward murder case over the poaching of paddlefish for
domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier than the depths of the lake.
Soon a second body is found—an illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to
a charismatic tent revival preacher. But as Katrina tries to
investigate the enigmatic evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic
FBI agents and Army CID personnel. When more young female refu-gees
disappear, she must partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs
mixed feelings in her, to connect the lake murder to the refugees.
Katrina is no stranger to darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators
plan to make sure she’ll never again see the light of day . . .
A LIVING GRAVE
Katrina Williams Book 1
The first in a gritty new series featuring sheriff’s detective Katrina
Williams, as she investigates moonshine, murder, and the ghosts of
her own past…


BODY OF PROOF
Katrina Williams left the Army ten years ago disillusioned and damaged. Now a
sheriff’s detective at home in the Missouri Ozarks, Katrina is
living her life one case at a time—between mandated therapy
sessions—until she learns that she’s a suspect in a military
investigation with ties to her painful past.


The disappearance of a local girl is far from the routine distraction,
however. Brutally murdered, the girl’s corpse is found by a
bottlegger whose information leads Katrina into a tangled web of
teenagers, moonshiners, motorcycle clubs, and a fellow veteran
battling illness and his own personal demons. Unraveling each thread
will take time Katrina might not have as the Army investigator
turns his searchlight on the devastating incident that ended her
military career. Now Katrina will need to dig deep for the
truth—before she’s found buried…
Robert E. Dunn was born an Army brat and grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. He
wrote his first book at age eleven turning a series of Jack Kirby
comic books into a hand written novel.

Over many years in the, mostly, honest work of video and film production
he produced everything from documentaries, to training films and his
favorite, travelogues. He returned to writing mystery, horror, and
fantasy fiction for publication after the turn of the century. It
seemed like a good time for change even if the changes were not
always his choice.

Mr. Dunn is the author of the horror novels, THE RED HIGHWAY, MOTORMAN,
and THE HARROWING, as well as the Katrina Williams mystery/thriller
series, A LIVING GRAVE, A PARTICULAR DARKNESS, and the upcoming A
DARK PATH.

does not reciprocate and a threat to her people that might kill them
all, she is suddenly forced to become what she is meant to be – a
Prime.

From a young age, her dream had

From his Temple in the ground, the Horned God stirs…

Sunday, May 20th, 2018
Starfarers and explorers, the League settled on Kana thousands of years ago. They found it to be a paradise, a perfect, virtually uninhabited planet waiting just for them in the cradle of space.
Lovely Kana … it was too good to be true …But, all was not as it seemed. Simmering beneath the ground was a demented god who had soaked Kana in blood for untold ages, luring in victims, lying to them, and rejoicing in their suffering as they died at the hands of his dark angels.
And there will be blood again … From his Temple in the ground, the Horned God stirs.
When Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, a young man troubled by the weight of the world, dares give his heart to a girl from a mysterious ancient household, one that pre-dates the League itself, he comes to know the shadows of the past that hover over her.He comes to know of the Horned God, and for love he is destined to face him. All roads lead to the Temple of the Exploding Head, a place of evil and death, rooted in the ancient past, but also tied to the distant future. 

 

 

 

REN GARCIA, is a Science Fiction/Fantasy author and Texas native who grew up in western Ohio. He has been writing since before he could write, often scribbling alien lingo on any available wall or floor with assorted crayons.

He attended The Ohio State University and majored in English Literature. Ren has been an avid lover of anything surreal since childhood, he also has a passion for caving, urban archeology and architecture.
His books are published by Loconeal Publishing and include: The League of Elder: Sygillis of Metatron, The Hazards of the Old Ones, The Dead Held Hands, The Machine, and The Temple of the Exploding Head. LoE Book VI: Sands of the Solar Empire was released in July, 2012 and Book VII: “Against the Druries” was released in 2013. His next set of books,  “The Shadow tech Goddess” was released in 2014 with the most recent book, Stenibelle, released in June 2015.
 He currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, and their three dogs.

 

The Temple of the Exploding Head by Ren Garcia is a compelling sci-fi-fantasy story with daring and well-rounded characters. It contains time travel, royalty and love, all well set and not overwhelming each other. The worlds created by Ren Garcia are developed, dangerous and amazingly well done. You will have a hard time putting this book down. This page turner will trick you into believing you know what’s going on, just to find out you were as far from right as you can get. I recommend it to readers of fantasy and sci-fi genre. You will be glad you chose it.

The version I read was composed of three books, which was overwhelmingly long for all at once…I would have preferred to have read them separately, in much smaller bites. That said, I really enjoyed the tale and the writing. What a great imagination and deliverance of this story.

Jolie
Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge’s Jersey shore B&B, taking her
cat Jazz, and joining Madge’s pair of prune-eating dogs. It’s not a
retreat from her embezzling ex-husband, just a smart change. Jolie
rekindles friendships, dodges a low-level wise guy, and tries to
figure out her new life. She hasn’t seen her high school classmates
in ten years, and they weren’t all buds. Why care if a couple of them
are murder suspects? Because finding a dead body when you’re
appraising a house grabs your attention.
Jolie
balances fear of a smart-mouth wise guy with a belief that her
friends are innocent. Her murder suspects include one accused’s
ex-wife and beneficiaries of the dead woman’s will. Jolie keeps
searching, but will someone’s plans leave her alive to find the
truth?

her, and will solving Mary Doris’ murder lead to a culprit in a
decades-old crime? Between running the food pantry at Christmas and

just the last-and maybe worst-in a long line of bad decisions. Saving
the small-town Gazette is the second chance both Andi and Graham

to be her publicist) and they have 4 sons whom they adore, and a
granddaughter who is the love of their life. They make their home in
the small fishing community of Bayou La Batre, Alabama.

He knows he will be the target of many, and his faith might eventually lead to death

Friday, May 18th, 2018
In a world where seventh born sons are valued for their strength and power, she is born a daughter.
 

 

Zezilia Ilar is the disappointment. Born after six brothers, she was supposed to be the son to restore her family’s prestige. She intends to remedy her shortcomings by being a dutiful daughter, marrying well and producing children, preferably a set of seven sons. But when someone offers her an alternative, she begins to dream of more.
 
 
In a society that worships a goddess, he follows the Almighty.
 
Hadrian Aleron, as a seventh son of a seventh son, stands to take up the second highest position in government, Sept Son. His main qualification for office is his birth. Despite preparing for this role from childhood, he does not desire what is to come. As a follower of the Almighty, he knows he will be the target of many, and his faith might eventually lead to death.

 

 

Rachel Rossano lives with her husband and three children in the northeastern part of the United States. Homeschooled through high school, she began writing her early teens. She didn’t become serious about pursuing a career as an author until after she had graduated from college and happily married. Then the children came.
 

 

Now she spends her days being a wife, mother, teacher, and household manager. Her evenings and free moments are devoted to her other loves, writing and book cover design. Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page.

Top Ten List about Rachel Rossano

 

1 – I have three children that equally challenge, frustrate, and delight me every day.

2 – Almost twenty years ago, I married my best friend, and I have never regretted the decision for a moment.

3 – My parents are exactly a foot apart in height, and my husband and I are exactly a foot apart in height.

4 – I have no lenses in my eyes. I developed cataracts when I was very young and had the lenses in my eyes removed so I could see.

5 – Since childhood, I have not liked the texture of meat. Because of this, I have been a vegetarian since I was allowed to prepare my own food.

6 – I started publishing my books because I feared I would never have children. Now, I am homeschooling three children and fitting my writing and publishing around their educational needs. I’ve wondered more than once if the Lord did that so that I would continue to write. Otherwise, I might’ve waited until they were all raised and grown.

7 – I have naturally curly hair that refuses to stay straight or in place.

8 – My kids are some of my biggest fans despite the fact they have read none of my books.

9 – I post silly stories on FB about the things my kids say and do, not because I want everyone to be impressed with them, but so I will remember them later.

10 – My first crush was on Spock from Star Trek. So, when my husband comments that I am part Vulcan (meaning highly analytical and logical), I consider it quite the complement.

The
Stars That Rise at Dawn
Šehhinah
Book 1
By
Ivana Skye
Genre: Urban Fantasy
 
Yenatru
had always had trouble making friends. So he didn’t expect that
he’d have such an easy time befriending Lucifer…

 

 

Meanwhile,
his one previous friend Elīya is still not over the loss of the
third member of their friend group, Tamar. She disappeared one day to
become one of God’s Holy, and as far as Elīya’s concerned,
nothing’s ever been the same. It doesn’t help that her university
philosophy program is turning out much less interesting than she’d
hope.

 

 

It
could be that Yenatru’s weird new friend has just the skills she
needs to solve all her problems. But in order to get Lucifer’s
help, she’ll have to confront parts of herself she’s never dared
to.

The
Birds That Fly at Dusk
Šehhinah
Book 2
 

 

Celyet’s
been trying to keep her head low ever since she left the camp of
demons she grew up in. But then she actually talks to a barista at
the local coffee shop. And then an angel gets involved…

 

 

 

Celyet
finds nothing more terrifying than the idea of being misued or
misinterpreted by people. That’s why she hasn’t been talking to
anyone for half a year. But when she challenges herself to visit
somewhere in town she’s never been, she ends up making a terrible
mistake, bringing her time spent hiding to an abrupt end.

 

Sän
may work at a coffee shop, but that doesn’t mean they know how to
comfort people. But they really want to find a way to make a
difference for that sad-looking demon who keeps coming in.

 

 

And
just because the shop’s owned by the angel Jibril doesn’t mean
that they’re going to stop by anytime soon and start flinging puns
at people … right?

The
Lives That Argue For Us
Šehhinah
Book 3
 

 

Teśena
and Kjorel have been in an open relationship for years. But when
Kjorel leaves to travel for eight months, Teśena doesn’t really
have anyone else to turn to. Well, except the most powerful person in
the world…

 

 

 

Everyone knows God
is made of fire. So of course no one would ever suggest that the
easily-overwhelmed Teśena try praying to Them. Then why, when Teśena
tries to do exactly that in a moment of desperation, do they seem to
get along so well?

 

On the other
side of the world, Kjorel’s dealing with a loneliness of his own.
That is, until he starts his visit to the city of Ēnnuh, and finds a
boyfriend within a few days. With no way to contact Teśena, he can
only hope their previous agreements stand … or that Teśena will
improbably find a way to communicate with him anyway.

 

 

After
all, what’s a few thousand miles when you have God on your side?

too.

 

 

 

Despite currently being in the middle of multiple months
of travel through various countries she is not from, she still
retains a strong connection to the state of Colorado, where she will
probably permanently live. Eventually.
