Throne of Silver
The Silver Fae Book 1
by K.B. Anne
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Meet Starr Bishop, the girl next door. Well, if the girl next door can deliver a dropkick to the throat and is possibly supernatural.
A secret organization wants me as an assassin. Me, kill someone? No way. The General also hints that I’m a superior being—whatever the hell that means. But it might explain the strange flickering thing that’s been happening to me lately.
And then there’s Christian, the goth-loner who casts disdainful glares in my direction like it’s his day job. When I go missing, he goes all superhero and finds me. And what’s with his eyes changing shape when he doesn’t think I’m looking at him?
Now there’s this crazy chemistry between us, but I must deny my feelings. Christian is a complication, and my life is complicated enough. If I give in, I could put both of our lives at risk, and I’ve already lost two friends because of the Organization.
But when Christian goes missing, I follow him into a world of deception, lies, and secret realms. No worries. I’ve got this. After all, the General wanted me as an assassin. If I can learn to tap into my true nature.
The trouble is, the Organization will stop at nothing to pick up their top recruit. Will I figure out what superior being I am before it’s too late?
If you like Linsey Hall, CN Crawford, Chandelle LeVaun, Leia Stone, Michelle Maddow, McKenzie Hunter, and Jaymin Eve, you’ll love the highly addictive Silver Fae series.

Silver Fae Hunter
The Silver Fae Book 2
Fae
aren’t real, right? Or at least that’s what I keep telling
myself.
 But
when my grandparents locked me in the library, thanks for that by the
way, I remembered things from my childhood, back when my dad was
still alive. Things like silver thrones, pointed ears, and fangs.
 Christian
and I knew we couldn’t fight the Organization on our own. We needed
help. 
Di,
a mutual friend and anti-everything is a no-brainer, plus her taser
will come in handy. Frank, my absolute best friend will put his life
on the line for me. Ben and Coda, not to be outdone by also swore
their allegiance. Christian’s the only hold out. He knows what the
Organization is capable of and has the beaten body to prove it, but
when I want something, I usually get it.
 And
now, though I keep denying my “other” nature, every time I get
angry, each time I feel too much, the flickering happens. My Fae side
wants to break out. Will Christian, Frank, Di, and the rest of the
team accept me when they find out what I am?
Life
becomes tense on the Qualla Boundary, sparks fly, and the
Organization is about to smash in our door.
Inspired

Heir of Wings and Shadows
The Silver Fae Book 3
Betrayal
cuts deep. A Starr gone. A team betrayed.
 You
never know who your true friends are until a gun’s pointed at you.
One will take a bullet, and the other will pull the trigger. I
learned that lesson the hard way.
 When
the Organization decided they wanted me as an assassin, life took a
dive in the deep end. One, I learned I’m a Silverlain and
evidently, a faerie princess. Two, there was a secret cult run by
Jerry White but somehow related to the Organization and my
grandparents who all wanted me as their own personal…I don’t know
what. And three, Christian, well Christian betrayed me. I trusted
him, believed in him, loved him, and he tossed that love in the
garbage and aligned himself with Sami and Jovie instead.
Did
I mention they’re still alive and want me dead? You’d think I’d
sleep easier at night, but not so much.
Christian’s
betrayal hurt me. I will never give my heart away to anyone ever
again, and since I’m jailed by the Organization, I will become the
Fae assassin they want me to be. But Treadwell better watch his
throat because if I get close to him, I will rip it out myself.
Sami
is one of my guards. Talk about unfortunate circumstances.. But don’t
worry, I’ll create my own team, albeit I won’t be able to trust
any of them, but on the plus side, I’ll get my revenge. After all,
I am the Heir of Wings and Shadow.

What Death Taught Terrence
by Derek McFadden
Genre: Inspirational Fantasy
LIFE IS A JOURNEY. SO IS THE AFTERLIFE.
At the end of his life, Terrence McDonald must discover its meaning,
or he’ll be banned from the afterlife forever, and his soul will cease to
exist.
Join Terrence–
and those who love him–on a poignant and
unforgettable journey through a life at once wonderful and harrowing.
Learn what Terrence learns. See what Terrence sees. By this provocative
story’s end, readers may even learn a thing or two about themselves.
***
The TV is on, and I’m on the couch, leaning as far back as I can. My heavy, indecisive brown eyes—their lenses blurred ever since my tumultuous, too-soon entrance into the world—flutter between open and shut. I am half-watching half-listening to a football game on a Sunday afternoon. Was that the doorbell?
“Who is it?” I call out, expecting to hear my daughter, Megan’s, voice. These days, she is the one person who visits me. The only person who knows I’m making my home in this little oasis fashioned from wood felled by my own hand.
“Terry, it’s Mom. I’m here to help you move.”
My mom? That’s not possible. She’s…
Wait. To help me move? Oh, God.
I rise from the couch and glance back at my lifeless body.
PRAISE FOR What Death Taught Terrence
“What Death Taught Terrence offers a powerful, painful, and poignant look at the life of a man rarely encountered in fiction. Derek McFadden’s writes with an insight few can match.”
— T.F. ALLEN, author of The Night Janitor and The Keeper
“A good story allows the reader to experience life as another person, and McFadden made me do so on a deeply personal level. If you like the works of Mitch Albom, I think you’ll find What Death Taught Terrence a worthy addition to your library and the reading of it a lifeaffirming journey.”
— BRADLEY HARPER, Edgar-Award Finalist, author of A Knife In The Fog and Queen’s Gambit
“In What Death Taught Terrence, Derek McFadden builds a world that satisfies both our desire for imagination and our need for personal introspection. I found this (story) immediately immersive, and it stuck
with me long after I finished. McFadden is doing something rare in today’s fiction—exploring the limits of what we will believe to form a better understanding of who we are.”
— ALEX DOLAN, author of The Euthanist and The Empress of Tempera

I honestly don’t consider myself a Millennial, and really hate that title. Also I’m a part-time working secretary and a full-time mother/housewife, as well as a Lupus Warrior.
Having Lupus, means a life of inside living, and the sun is known as my arch-nemesis, my personal kryptonite. I wanted to leave a legacy behind, something my kids could one day look back on and say, yeah my mom did that.
Thanks to the encouragement of friends and family, I found a passion in writing paranormal romance books. Anything fantasy usually suits my novels and I tend to be able to reach anyone in multiple genres. Most of my story ideas come to me in the most unexpected time and places, such as my dreams. They will plague me non-stop until I get my rear up and write it out.
I like to explore new types of characters such as Sandmen and Boogeymen for example. I really wanted to give them their own world, such as A Sandman’s Forbidden Love.
God has granted me success that I never imagined was possible., which led me to my obsession with the paranormal. Now, I know shifters aren’t real but Angels are another story. So Angels are also a part of my obsession, I will sit on the computer doing extensive research on both Sandmen and Angels trying to get my facts straight.
Then, on the side, I create Art Journals that can be cross generational from thirteen to sixty years younger. My goal with these types of books is to reach people who need that extra feel good in their lives.

Tell us something really interesting that’s happened to you!

I used to play tenor drum in a bagpipe and drum band, and we performed on the Minnesota state capital’s steps during a memorial the Saturday after 9/11. Besides having my kids, I have never done anything more meaningful. On a lighter note, during college I worked in a 50s-meets-the-80s restaurant where I roller skated and danced on tables (but not both at the same time).

What are some of your pet peeves?

A few of my pet peeves: 1) grammatical and spelling errors on signs. 2) multiple opened containers of the same thing in the fridge or cupboard.

Who is your hero and why?

My dad. I didn’t get to grow up near him because my parents divorced when I was young, and we were 2000 miles apart. As an adult, I learned how much he cares for his family, my grandmother and grandfather, especially. He is the best storyteller, too. In fact, one of Dan’s stories in Skyclyffe is based on one of my dad’s.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

Not until Skyclyffe  was nearly complete, and only after I forced myself to tell someone outside of my family.

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

None—but once during a family trip we slept in a covered wagon on land Laura Ingalls Wilder lived on as a kid.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

When my son was young, he had this soft, round toy, each quadrant a different animal’s face and matching sounds to boot. We called it Piggy Cat Cow Dog. I imagine my spirit animal would have to be something like that, but an amalgamation of dog, elephant, and turtle. A dogphantle? Eleturtdog? That is awful. Let’s just go with dog. Besides, I do have a German Shepherd puppy avatar/logo in use just about everywhere.

What inspired you to write this book?

A lone, puffy cloud zigzagging in the sky. I joked to myself, “Who’s in that cloud?” and then a little voice in my head said, “Could be anyone.”

What can we expect from you in the future?

The next book in the Skyclyffe series.

Where did you come up with the names in the story?

The characters who grew up on the Earth’s surface have average names, except Rex’s. You learn about how his name came to be in chapter two.

Since the characters on Skyclyffe were born on the ship or alighted in 1936 (apart from a few we can’t talk about here), their names tend to be more typical of that era. I scrolled through Most Popular Baby Names lists by year.

Advice they would give new authors?

Write because you want to, and let the book be what it wants to be.

Describe your writing style.

Positively a Plotter with a capital P, but I’m not afraid to allow new ideas in.

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

Be original. I kind of like that when I was querying and agents asked for comps, I couldn’t find another book to compare mine to. Harder to sell in this publishing market, but I’d rather be a Hunger Games, Harry Potter, or Twilight than one of the scores of books that came after.

Z. Moss lives in Stillwater, Minnesota and is currently working on the sequel to Skyclyffe. Two dogs, three cats, and two turtles run the household, including the real-life Radar.

Crack detective, inventor, and woman of mystery Ace Carroway’s next case turns personal when one of her associates goes missing

Sunday, April 5th, 2020
ABOUT the BOOK
ACE CARROWAY AND THE MIDNIGHT SCREAM 1455 2328
Crack detective, inventor, and woman of mystery Ace Carroway’s next case turns personal when one of her associates goes missing.
It’s summer solstice at Stonehenge, 1922. Archaeologist Sam Biming keeps a midnight vigil to make sure none of the tourists trip into his dig site. A horrible scream rips through the air: the sound of sudden, excruciating death. The crimson splashes on the heel stone tell of grisly bloodletting. But no slashed body lies among the rays of bloodspatter, only a mysterious, solid gold ankh.
The ankh comes from ancient Egypt, but crafted recently. Sam chases the paradox, to his undoing. By the time Ace arrives, Sam has vanished.
Clues point to a secretive order of jester-assassins. But these assassins served the pharaohs of ancient Egypt and should have disappeared three thousand years ago.
Should have.
To  rescue Sam, Ace must unravel the most bizarre set of clues she’s ever encountered, across three thousand miles of travel and three thousand years of time. It’s a puzzle to stymie even Ace’s formidable intellect.  Solve it she must, but if she does, one thing is clear. Assassins lie in wait at the end.
This book contains: Stonehenge. The British Museum. The mighty Nile. Hippopotamus. A knife of solid gold. The secret guardians of darkness. A diamond necklace tossed contemptuously into the dust. Sweet Egyptian coffee. The ability to walk silently. Sunburn. A deposed pharaoh rotting in prison. Tweed.

Ace Carroway and the Midnight Scream is fifth in the Adventures of Ace Carroway series. Content rating: teen.

The Mejuarian Chronicles Book 1
by Zola Blue

To heal their lands, and prolong their heritage, a sorcerer, sorceress, wizard, and wizardess combine their mystical powers to become the Great One, known to all as Thire-los.
