The
Ghosts of Ravencrest
The
Ravencrest Saga Book 1
by
Tamara Thorne & Alistair Cross
Genre:
Gothic, Paranormal Horror 
 
Darkness
Never Dies …

 

Ravencrest
Manor has always been part of the family. The ancestral home of the
Mannings, Ravencrest’s walls have been witness to generations of
unimaginable scandal, horror, and depravity. Imported stone by stone
from England to northern California in the early 1800s, the manor now
houses widower Eric Manning, his children, and his staff. Ravencrest
stands alone, holding its memories and ghosts close to its dark
heart, casting long, black shadows across its grand lawns, through
the surrounding forests, and over the picturesque town of Devilswood,
below.

 

Dare
to Cross the Threshold …

 

Ravencrest
Manor is the most beautiful thing new governess, Belinda Moorland,
has ever seen, but as she learns more about its tangled past of
romance and terror, she realizes that beauty has a dark side.
Ravencrest is built on secrets, and its inhabitants seem to be
keeping plenty of their own – from the handsome English butler, Grant
Phister, to the power-mad administrator, Mrs. Heller, to Eric Manning
himself, who watches her with dark, fathomless eyes. But Belinda soon
realizes that the living who dwell in Ravencrest have nothing on the
other inhabitants – the ones who walk the darkened halls by night …
the ones who enter her dreams … the ones who are watching … and
waiting …

 

 

Welcome
to Ravencrest …

 

Who
is the man digging in the garden beyond Belinda’s bedroom window?
Who – or what – is watching her from the vents? From ghostly screams
and the clutching bony fingers of death in the indoor pool, to the
trio of gliding nuns in the east wing who come at Belinda with black
blazing eyes, to the beckoning little girl in the red dress who died
more than two centuries ago, Belinda is thrust into a world of waking
nightmares where there is no distinction between the living and the
dead, and there are no limits to the horrors that await. Witchcraft
is afoot at Ravencrest and as unspeakable terrors begin to unfold,
Belinda realizes that her beautiful new home is a keeper of tragedy,
a collector of souls. And it wants to add her to its collection …

The
Witches of Ravencrest

 

 

Dark
and Unnatural Powers

 

In
a remote part of California just above the coastal town of
Devilswood, Ravencrest Manor, imported stone-by-stone from England
more than two centuries ago, looms tall and terrifying, gathering its
dark and unnatural powers, and drawing those it wants as its
own.

 

 

Murder
Lurks in the Shadows

 

Governess
Belinda Moorland has settled into life at Ravencrest and, as summer
gives way to autumn, romance is in the air. She and multi-millionaire
Eric Manning are falling in love … but powerful forces will stop at
nothing to keep them apart. And as the annual Harvest Ball is set to
begin, evil abounds at Ravencrest. Murder lurks in the shadows, evil
spirits freely roam the halls, a phantom baby cries, signaling a
death in the mansion, and in the notoriously haunted east wing, three
blood-soaked nuns, Sisters Faith, Hope, and Charity, tend to the
demented needs of a maid gone mad.

 

 

Vengeful
Spirits

 

Ravencrest
has come to life. In the gardens below, granite statues dance by
moonlight, and a scarecrow goes on a killing rampage, collecting a
gruesome assortment of body parts from unwilling donors … But
Belinda’s greatest danger is the vengeful spirit of Rebecca Dane.
Once the mistress of Ravencrest, Rebecca Dane has a centuries-old ax
to grind with the powerful witch, Cordelia Heller – and Belinda
becomes her weapon of choice.

Devil Comes to Ravencrest

 

 

The
Jazz Age

 

In
the 1920s, Henry Manning ruled Ravencrest with an iron fist. He held
debauched parties that would have inspired Jay Gatsby himself. From
the Manning fortune to a beautiful wife, the silent film star known
as the White Violet, Henry had it all … including a loyal cult that
worshipped the demon Forneus.

 

 

Deal
with the Devil

 

Violet
lost her life putting a stop to the demented perversions that Henry
and his demonic familiar visited upon Ravencrest …  but now
that evil has returned.

 

 

The
Soulless Child

 

In
the night, an innocent maid is seduced by a demon lover. A child is
born, but it is not of this earth. Father Antonio DeVargas is
summoned as ghostly parties light up the old poolhouse and phantom
screams rip open the night. Meanwhile, the White Violet wanders the
halls of Ravencrest warning the inhabitants of death and disaster to
come.

 

 

And
the current master of Ravencrest, Eric Manning, is decidedly not
himself.

 

 

Midnight.
The witching hour. Watery echoes in an empty building. The grand
Greek Pool at Ravencrest Manor babbles and gurgles as
chlorine-scented water flows like cool blood in veins and arteries.
The moon, full and high above the arched glass ceiling, shines its
light into the cobalt pool, casting splintered rays across the
water.

 

 

A
spring and thunk from the tall diving board, then somehow, water
explodes into the air. The sound ebbs and flows with movement.

 

 

But
if no human ear is present to hear it, no eye to see it, can these
things be real? Or are they merely tricks of light and sound, magic
courtesy of Mother Nature?

 

 

Soft
golden lamps flicker to life. And then, music, faint but
unmistakable, rises and echoes. Eddie Cantor. If You Knew Susie Like
I Know Susie.

 

 

Laughter.
The sounds of a party, of voices, of champagne glasses
clinking.

 

 

Then
something white and serpentine slithers and stirs beneath the water
like glistening cold silk, there and gone again in an instant.

Desperate to hide, Kat flees. Now, trapped in time, her survival and return are threatened by her tortured heart.
Ensnared by hopelessness and grief, twenty-four-year-old Kat Shelton accepts a position as the curator of an old English estate with the sole purpose of running away from her memories and to bury life’s pain.
 
What she finds on her journey is much more than she bargained for—an arrogant employer, patronizing staff, and a chaotic system to name a few. Then to top it all off, an unforeseen tumble down the antiquated cellar steps brings her to a sudden halt.
 
Waking up in the year 1878, and mistaken for the children’s new governess, Kat scrambles to navigate nineteenth-century British lifestyle and culture. An impossible feat if it weren’t for the help of the Gilford girls and their charming and handsome brother, Merritt.

 

 
Will Kat find the strength, love and forgiveness she yearns for in the past? Or will her path bring her back to the reality she fears?

I
was born to hunt. I was born to protect.

fae are sneaking into our little town. They stole my sister. They
stole my sight. And now they’re going to steal everything else …
unless I stop them. Isn’t that so charming?

 

I
don’t care that they’re pretty. I don’t care that to them lies
are truth, power is sustenance, and every action ripples into
violence. I’m not going to let their glamor fool me. I’m going to
use it to fuel me as I bring them down.

 

But
the town is turning against me, and I’m losing allies one by one. I

four roles of the Faewald. A role she must fulfill by force of
magic.

 

 

Worse,
the Blood Moon has risen in the Faewald and that means it is the time
of the Wild Hunt.

Ashes of Ailushurai
The Esfah Sagas Book 1
by Christopher D. Schmitz
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Dwarves, elves, & goblins collide…
…Esfah is another world originally from the creators of Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance.
Here there be dragons!
When a reluctant Dwarven adventurer undertakes a quest on behalf of his blind father, he accidentally awakens an ancient evil banished ages ago. Now, with dark elves and goblinoid trogs snapping at his heels, Hy’Targ must prevent a powerful lich from reuniting with the ancient bones of his lover. Failure means a new age of darkness will spread across the land.
Prince Hy’Targ of the Irontooth vagha would much rather stay in the library and read about the exploits of others. In his studies, however, he uncovers the tale of a powerful artifact he believes could restore his father’s sight. On his quest, he accidentally triggers a trap that releases an ancient undead general that was long ago sealed away to prevent him from beginning a planet-wide uprising of the dead. Hy’Targ knows that this fiend must be destroyed before he can regain his full strength, and he knows where the lich has escaped to.
Journeying towards the creature’s dark tower, he enlists the help of the few souls who believe him, one of whom is an imprisoned thief that must first be freed… a thief who is linked to their problems more closely than they realize. He stole the sacred bones the lich is after and undead scouts pursue his every move. Can this band of unlikely heroes prevent a second rise of the Black Tower?

Rise and Fall of the Obsidian Grotto

The Esfah Sagas Prequel
Elves. Dwarves. Blood Oaths & Dragons.
There are far worse things crawling upon Esfah than goblins…
…some, even swords and sorcery cannot defeat.
A devious elder monster allies with the lava elves of the Obsidian Grotto. She promises to provide an elven general with arcane weapons to throw down their dwarven enemies, and also the support of a black magic wielding cult hidden within the Nhur-Gale Forest. General Shedakor assumes that any bargain with such a dark creature would extract a high cost… but can he afford to pay it?
Meanwhile, on the far side of Esfah. An elven hero from the northern coasts embarks on a mission to protect his home from the goblins of Brackishomme swamp. But Davian Whisperwynd is prone to rash vows and the gods will not release the adventurer from a promise to lay down his sword: an oath that complicates things when he promises a beautiful enchanter that he will retrieve an item from the lair of the Death god himself.
Neither knows it, but the gods of fate have interlinked their destinies.
In the mid 1990s there was one fantasy RPG that ruled them all: D&D, of which Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and many other books and gaming worlds were a part of. It’s publisher, TSR, created another gaming world that won Game of the Year in 1995. That world was Esfah.
In eons past, when time was young and creation malleable, the four powers of Nature — earth, air, fire, and water — the children of Nature, gods in their own rights, brought forth two races of beings to care for their fledgling world of Esfah, created by the all-father, Tarvenehl. One race, the Selumari or coral elves, was created to husband the fluid forces of air and water. The other race, the Vagha, a dwarvish race, embodied the stability of earth and the tempering power of fire. Together, these two peoples worked to nurture their infant world into something glorious and beautiful… but then another god revealed himself: Death…

Jamestown’s Deliverance
The Kairos Makers Book 2
by C.A. Gray
Genre: Children’s Adventure
Fresh from their brief adventure to colonial times, Gabe, Elizabeth, and Marty receive their next summons from Thrylos, warning them that this will be a longer adventure, and to pack appropriately. Not knowing what ‘longer’ means, the kids do as they’re told, and arrive on a deserted island in 1609, just in time to see a shipwreck on the reefs!
It turns out that the ship is called the Sea Venture, and it was originally bound for the colony of Jamestown, Virginia. The deserted island is called Bermuda, reputed at the time to be surrounded by monsters. All the passengers of the Sea Venture survived the wreck, including one dog whom Elizabeth happily adopts, but the ship itself did not. Gabe, Elizabeth, and Marty find themselves stranded with the would-be settlers as they build two new ships and learn to survive off the land.
Nine months later, when the kids are really starting to wonder what they’re doing there, they finally set sail in the new vessels for Jamestown—only to find that the remaining settlers there are at death’s door! The kids learn from a mysterious prophetess that a resupply ship from England is on the way. But the crew of the original Sea Venture doesn’t know this; they consider the colony a lost cause, and they are on the verge of returning to England and letting it fail. Can Gabe, Elizabeth, and Marty convince them to just hang on in Jamestown for a few more days, even when it looks like all is lost?

Christmas Night 1776
The Kairos Makers Book 1
Ten year old Gabriel Jordan always wanted to be a magician. He just isn’t very good at it. His godmother writes to a mysterious traveling magician named Thrylos and begs him to visit Gabe, just to encourage him. To her surprise and Gabe’s, Thrylos does so—only it turns out that Thrylos doesn’t just do “magic tricks.” He’s a real magician, and he offers Gabe a magical adventure—any adventure—of his choice.
Gabe thinks long and hard about this. Because Gabe’s godparents adopted him when he lost his mom and dad, he knows what it is to be sad, and to need something exciting to cheer him up. So he tells Thrylos when he returns that he wants to give his adventure away to another kid who needs it more than he does. Thrylos is so impressed with Gabe’s unselfish choice that he offers to make Gabe his apprentice instead. Thrylos reveals that he is a time-traveling magician, and he travels throughout history to various critical, kairos moments in time to make sure they happen the way they should. But he can’t do it alone. Gabe asks if he can bring his adopted little sister Elizabeth and his bookish friend Marty as apprentices too, and Thrylos agrees.
Together, the three kids travel to Christmas Night, 1776: the pivotal night of the American Revolutionary War. Whether or not America ever becomes a nation hinges on General George Washington’s decision that night, when it seems like everything has gone wrong. Can Gabe, Elizabeth, and Marty convince General Washington to press on in the face of incredible odds? The fate of the future United States of America hangs in the balance!

C.A. Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies: PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends), THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology), and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that she’s interested in learning more about herself, and then creates lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it.

American Holocaust

Brady Cruze
Genre:
Coming of Age Fiction 
 
Is
the Holocaust really over? That is the question Jacob Rossner has
asked himself every day since his family fled Nazi Germany for the
United States. Jacob soon discovers that the so-called Promised Land

a child who was forced to grow up too soon, but who finds love and

Brady has experienced first hand the devastating results racism in
the US even many decades after the civil rights movement. In The
American Holocaust, Brady makes the argument that the US has another
kind of Holocaust in it’s hands and that racism is still a big part
of everyday culture.

His greatest battle is the struggle to protect his little sister from the horrors of legalized slavery in a world where slaves have few rights

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020
A GRIPPING YOUNG ADULT ADVENTURE!
 

About the Story:

Bensin, a teenage slave and martial artist, is desperate to see his little sister freed. But only victory in the Krillonian Empire’s most prestigious tournament will allow him to secretly arrange for Ellie’s escape. Dangerous people are closing in on her, however, and Bensin is running out of time. With his one hope fading quickly away, how can Bensin save Ellie from a life of slavery and abuse?


What is the Collar for, and What is a Cavvarach?

The story is set in a world very much like our own, with just a few major differences. One is that slavery is legal there. Slaves must wear metal collars that lock around their neck, making their enslaved status obvious to everyone. Any slave attempting to escape faces the dilemma of how and where to illegally get their collar removed (a crime punishable by enslavement for the remover).  

Another difference is the popularity of a martial art called cavvara shil. It is fought with a cavvarach (rhymes with “have a rack”), an unsharpened weapon similar to a sword but with a steel hook protruding from partway down its top edge. Competitors can strike at each other with their feet as well as with the blades. You win in one of two ways: disarming your opponent (hooking or knocking their cavvarach out of their hands) or pinning their shoulders to the mat for five seconds.

More About the Story


Set in a world alarmingly like our own, The Collar and the Cavvarach is the story of fourteen-year-old Bensin, a slave, whose status is made obvious to everyone by the steel collar locked around his neck. A martial artist who competes to win money for his owner, Bensin fights in tournaments with a cavvarach. But his greatest battle is the struggle to protect his little sister from the horrors of legalized slavery in a world where slaves have few rights. Desperate to keep her safe, Bensin struggles to find a means – legal or otherwise – to arrange for her freedom.

Annals of Alasia Book 5
Life as the king’s younger sister should be exciting.
Not for Princess Kalendria. She’s sick of the dissent and of constantly having her family undermined by those who think they could rule Malorn better than King Korram.
Hoping to lighten the mood in the palace, Kalendria plans a ball to celebrate her seventeenth birthday. It doesn’t hurt that their handsome Alasian ally King Jaymin has promised to attend, and she’s been waiting for him to notice her for as long as she can remember.
But unfriendly forces have their own party plans. When Kalendria, Korram, and Jaymin barely survive an assassination attempt, their only recourse is to flee into the wilderness. Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom they can trust and who is behind the plot. Can Kalendria help her brother reclaim his throne – oh, and catch Jaymin’s attention while she’s at it – before they are all killed and war destroys both kingdoms?

When the four of them encounter a mysterious stranger, he must choose between keeping the young girls safe and taking on a mission that could help free his kingdom.

One major obstacle stands between seventeen-year-old Prince Korram and the throne that is his birthright: Regent Rampus. Temporary ruler of Malorn, Rampus has no intention of giving up his position when the crown prince comes of age – or of allowing the prince to live long enough to reach that age.
Desperate to build an army of his own to stand against the regent, Korram treks into the Impassable Mountains to try to recruit the one segment of Malornian society not under Rampus’s control. But can he lead a band of untrained hunters and gatherers to victory against the full might of the Malornian military? Or will they all be crushed by the grasping hand of the regent before the prince can claim his rightful throne?
