Roxanne, a vision in ivory silk and lace rendered, the scene romantic rather than sinister

Friday, November 1st, 2019

 

Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.
A sparkling traditional Regency romance to enchant fans.
When the young and handsome
Earl of Pennington discovers the inheritance from his great-uncle depends on
him marrying at midnight on the eve of his thirtieth birthday, he is irate.
Marriage is not part of his plan to save his impoverished estates. He crosses
paths unexpectedly with the beautiful Roxanne Chesney, who is fleeing from her
abusive husband. 
 
He offers her a contract: marriage for six months to help him
fulfil the conditions of his great-uncle’s will, enabling him secure his
inheritance. In return he will pay her a small fortune. 
 
Can Roxanne resist this
offer? What about the revolting Edgar Doyle who forced her into a loveless
marriage that has not been consummated? Roxanne has escaped Edgar’s clutches,
but she wonders how long she will manage to evade him. The earl’s contract has
no strings attached. The offer is irresistible except for the fact that Roxanne
is already married!

 

Snippet:
The candlelight cast a soft glow in the
room and imbued the bride with an ethereal radiance. Mr. Lobb had a faint sense
that the proceedings were slightly irregular. He could not remember anyone
performing a marriage ceremony at midnight before. It smacked of the exotic,
something he had never been encouraged to consider. However, the appearance of
Roxanne, a vision in ivory silk and lace rendered, the scene romantic rather
than sinister.
Mr. Lobb was even more agitated than ever
since brides in the village were never as beautiful as the dream of loveliness
that Roxanne presented. He gulped several times, and his large Adam’s apple
bobbed up and down as he found himself temporarily speechless. Roxanne shook
hands with him, and he gasped and wheezed before managing a strangled “Good
evening.” The worldly thought that the Earl of Pennington was to be envied in
his choice of
bride sneaked into the back of his mind,
and he uttered a small sigh of rapture. Mrs. Dawson and Gregson attended in the
capacity of witnesses. Rufus had been banished to the stables, but the howling
that emitted from behind the doors was so awful that Julian had relented at
last on the condition of good behaviour. The hound lay in front of the fire,
his nose on his paws, behaving impeccably.

The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire

Sunday, October 27th, 2019
The
Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire
Books
I and II
by
Colette L. Saucier
Genre:
Paranormal Regency Romance 
 
FOR
THE FIRST TIME EVER: The definitive vampire adaptation of Pride and
Prejudice and its sultry sequel in one volume!

 

 


Books
1 and 2 of the award-winning, international bestselling Confession of
Mr. Darcy, Vampire, re-released in this special edition only on eBook
for a limited time at an incredible price.


 

 

BOOK
I: Pulse and Prejudice

 

Elle
Magazine selection “A Most Inventive Adaptation” (April,
2016)

 

Austenprose
“Readers’ Choice, Top 5 Books of the Year” (2012)

 

1st
Place Winner in Category, 2013 Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction

 

Mr.
Fitzwilliam Darcy – elegant, dark, brooding…vampire. The Master of
Pemberley tells his haunting tale of unquenchable desire and
forbidden love.

 

 

“I
cannot express enough how skeptical I was upon starting this book.
Pride & Prejudice with a touch of vampires was enough to send me
into fits of eye rolls. But, within only the first chapter, I found
myself strangely drawn to the story. The vampire Darcy weaves his
spell quickly.” – Austenprose

 

 

Book
II: Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth

 

In
this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, death shadows the
newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London to
the courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the
trials and travails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe
that she loves him as he is? Or will his jealousy tear them
apart?

 

 

This
is the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice; however, as it is not an Austen
adaptation, the reader will find it darker, bloodier, and more
provocative than Book 1.

 

 

“After
taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody
thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the
beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth’s love and devotion to
each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger.
It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while
at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose
inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own
plights.”

Snippet:
Zezilia
Accusing
eyes and a wave of hatred and confusion followed us out the doors of the dining
hall. I wanted to put up a stronger shield around Hadrian, but no amount of
energy was going to block out the spite behind us. It helped that Hadrian was
leading us down the corridor at a pace that kept me trotting to keep up. The
farther we were away from that crowd, the better.
Where
may I have an hour in private?
” Hadrian sent. I was so distracted by the
emotion behind us that for a moment I thought he was asking me. Then my brother
replied.
Taking
a sharp left, Hadrian flung open the next set of double doors and swept into
one of the side rooms off the main corridor. With quick orders from Renato, two
defenders took up stations on either side of the doors while the remaining four
followed us into the room and closed the doors behind us.
“Guard
the windows from the outside,” Renato ordered. I heard them obey, but I didn’t
see them because my attention was taken up with watching Hadrian.
He
had crossed directly to the far wall of the room and sagged against it. His
wide shoulders sloped and his head fell forward as though it was too heavy for
him to lift. This alone would have concerned me, but the storm of pain, fear,
anger, and frustration that warred within him was what tore a cry of help to
the Almighty from my heart.
Almighty,
help him. Give me wisdom. What can I do to ease his pain? Please, God, give him
peace.
“Hadrian?”
Renato’s panicked query brought Hadrian eyes to him. “You didn’t eat any of the
fruit, right? Do you need a healer?” My brother stepped forward into the sept
son’s personal space. “What is wrong?”
Hadrian
raised a hand wearily and pushed him back. “I am fine, Renato. Now go fetch
Korneli. I have time for him now.”
“Answer
my question first.”
Hadrian
merely shook his head. “No, I didn’t eat. I am not going to die, Renato. At
least, not at this moment. Now go.”
Nodding,
Renato turned to me. “Come. Korneli is…”
“No,
she stays here.” Both of us turned to regard the sept son. Hadrian had not
moved.
“But,
Master, you said I was to never leave you and her alone.”
“Send
in Plantonio when you leave. He will act as witness. Now go get Korneli before
I throw you out.”
“Yes,
Master.” Executing a sharp salute, he walked toward the door, sending me a
warning look as he passed.
Hadrian
did not move as Plantonio appeared, saluted, and then took station near the
door. I watched Hadrian carefully, monitoring the emotions that kept flaring
from him. Without the life of his dark eyes, his face appeared years older than
I knew him to be. Feathered lines radiated from his closed eyes and deep
crevices bracketed his mouth. The dark circles under his eyes spoke of hours of
lost sleep. A flare of anger distracted me from his face for a moment as I
stepped back from the intensity. His eyes flew open and immediately focused on
my face.
“How
did you know?” he asked. Slowly lifting his head and straightening, he crossed
to the nearest chair and sank into it.
“Pardon?”
“How
did you know it was poisoned?”
“He
intended to kill you.”
“But
how did you know? Did you read his thoughts?”
Fear
flooded through me. The servant hadn’t been a Talent. To read his thoughts
would be worthy of grave punishment. “No, he was projecting the emotions of a
man afraid of getting caught. When I saw him exchange the dishes, I knew why.”
He
closed his eyes and laid his head against the chair back. Pain washed over me
as his forehead tightened.
“Headache?”
I asked before thinking.
He
smiled bitterly. “The cost of stress and tension.”
“Where
does it hurt?”
He
sighed wearily. “Are you sure you want details?” He opened one dark brown eye
and squinted at me.
“Is
there anything I can do to help?”
Hadrian
closed his eye. “Yes. Come and sit in the chair across from me, so I don’t have
to keep looking up at you.”
I
quickly moved to obey, carefully stepping over his sprawled legs to reach the
chair. “Does this often happen, Sept Son?”
“What?”
He lifted a hand to massage his forehead. “The headaches?”
“No,
the attempts on your life.”
“More
often than I would like. I haven’t had this close a brush in a while.”
“Who
wants you dead?”
He
looked at me from beneath the shade of his hand. “The better question is who
doesn’t want me dead, Zez. The mesitas, half the kings, and most of the
worshipers of the goddess wish me out of the picture permanently.”
I
didn’t know what to say. I knew without a doubt that my father was one of the
group that wished Hadrian ill. What words does one offer a man who has recently
faced death?
“I
don’t hold it against you, Zez. Your father’s position has not affected my
trust in you or Renato. In fact, Renato’s closeness to me has limited some of
the attacks because Ilar doesn’t want to harm his son.” He paused for a few
moments. “I am sorry to bring you into the midst of this. This isn’t the place
for you.”
I
shook my head. He was wrong. “This is where I am supposed to be. If I hadn’t
been here, the Almighty wouldn’t have used me to prevent your death.” I
shuddered slightly at the thought. “I am the most qualified in many ways, and
you are going to teach me so that I can grow even more skilled. He has a
purpose for me here.”
He
laughed softly. “I can’t argue with that. His purpose is the only thing that
keeps me here. Though, I fear at times, Zez, that I am not going to survive
this. Each time I face my mortality, I wonder what the Almighty has in store.
All it would take is one moment when He decides not to show me grace and stop
the assassin’s hand. One time and all I have worked for would be gone.”
“He
has promised that what He has purposed will come to pass.” I quoted one of my
favorite passages of the Revelation to him. “I shall pray that He will continue
to spare you.”
Lowering
his hand, Hadrian looked at me and smiled slowly. “Thank you, Zez. Your prayers
will guard my soul while your Talent will guard my body. I will do the same for
you and, Almighty willing, we shall survive. If not, at least we shall be at
peace.” Then he quoted another favorite passage of mine. It spoke of the
instantaneous transformation at death when a believer steps from his own body
into the presence of the Almighty.

The
Dung Beetles of Liberia
by
Daniel V. Meier Jr.
Genre:
Adventure, Historical Fiction
 
Based
on the remarkable true account of a young American who landed in
Liberia in 1961.

 

 

Ken
Verrier is not happy, nor at peace. He is experiencing the turbulence
of Ishmael and the guilt of his brother’s death. His sudden decision
to drop out of college and deal with his demons shocks his family,
his friends, and especially his girlfriend, soon to have been his
fiancee. His destination: Liberia – The richest country in Africa
both in monetary wealth and in natural resources.

 

 

Nothing
could have prepared Ken for the experiences he was about to live
through. He quickly realizes that he has arrived in a place where he
understands very little of what is considered normal, where the
dignity of life has little meaning, and where he can trust no
one.

 

 

Flying
into the interior bush as a transport pilot, Ken learns quickly. He
witnesses first-hand the disparate lives of the Liberian “Country
People” and the “Congo People” also known as
Americo-Liberians. These descendants of President Monroe’s American
Colonization Policy that sent freed slaves back to Africa in the
1800’s have set up a strict hierarchical society not unlike the
antebellum South.

 

 

Author
Dan Meier describes Ken’s many escapades, spanning from horrifying to
whimsical, with engaging and fast-moving narrative that ultimately
describe a society upon which the wealthy are feeding and in which
the poor are being buried.

 

 

It’s
a novel that will stay will you long after the last word has been
read.

Taken to a desert metropolis, Anna is promised a life of reverence, wealth, and fame—in exchange for her gifts

Scions
The
Scribe Cycle #3
by
James Wolanyk
Genre:
Dark Fantasy
Pub
Date: 4/9/19
 
Three
years have passed since the devastation of Golyna. Anna, once the
maker of immortals, continues to fight the evil she unwillingly
created through her rune-carving magic. Secreted away in an isolated
mountain monastery, she works as a teacher to young scribes, guiding
them toward runes that foster peace rather than endless war. So when
the tracker who murdered her brother comes to Anna’s redoubt,
begging for his eternal runes to be undone, Anna agrees to grant his
wish on one condition—that he aid her in rooting out the remnants
of Volna, a genocidal regime bent on destruction.
In
this brave new world where old foes can become allies, so too can
former friends sour into deadly enemies. With the tracker’s help,
Anna is propelled into a confrontation with Ramyi, her former
apprentice. Grown bitter and disillusioned, Ramyi now wants to lay
waste to the world—but not before she completes an apocalyptic
ritual that could have dire consequences for all of existence. To
stop Ramyi from unleashing chaos, and restore peace to a broken
world, Anna must be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Three
long years have passed since Anna, First of Tomas, survived the purge
in Malijad after being forced to use her scribe sigils to create an
army of immortals. Safely ensconced in the shelter of the Nest, a
sanctuary woven by one of her young allies, Anna spends her days
tutoring the gifted yet traumatized scribe, Ramyi—and coming to
terms with her growing attachment to an expatriate soldier in her
company.
Away
from her refuge, war drums continue to beat. Thwarted in her efforts
to locate the elusive tracker and bring him to justice, Anna turns to
the state of Nahora and its network of spies for help. But Nahoran
assistance comes with a price: Anna must agree to weaponize her magic
for the all-out military confrontation to come.
Dispatched
to the front lines with Ramyi in tow, Anna will find her new
alliances put to the test, her old tormentors lying in wait, and the
fate of a city placed in her hands. To protect the innocent, she must
be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. For even in this season of
retribution, the gift of healing may be the most powerful weapon of
all.

Scribes
The
Scribe Cycle #1
 
Pawns
in an endless war, scribes are feared and worshipped, valued and
exploited, prized and hunted. But there is only one whose powers can
determine the fate of the world . . .
Born
into the ruins of Rzolka’s brutal civil unrest, Anna has never
known peace. Here, in her remote village—a wasteland smoldering in
the shadows of outlying foreign armies—being imbued with the magic
of the scribes has made her future all the more uncertain.
Through
intricate carvings of the flesh, scribes can grant temporary
invulnerability against enemies to those seeking protection. In an
embattled world where child scribes are sold and traded to corrupt
leaders, Anna is invaluable. Her scars never fade. The immunity she
grants lasts forever.
Taken
to a desert metropolis, Anna is promised a life of reverence, wealth,
and fame—in exchange for her gifts. She believes she is helping to
restore her homeland, creating gods and kings for an immortal
army—until she witnesses the hordes slaughtering without reproach,
sacking cities, and threatening everything she holds dear. Now, with
the help of an enigmatic assassin, Anna must reclaim the power of her
scars—before she becomes the unwitting architect of an apocalyptic
war.

The problem is that Patience is already madly in love with his lordship 

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

 

Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.

 

In this charming traditional Regency romance novella, Patience Cherwell is resigned to a life of spinsterhood. Therefore, when her young friend, the lovely Lorna Hartley, comes to stay for a London season, she decides the eligible, handsome Lord Blackwood is the perfect match for Lorna. Granted, Lord Blackwood, at forty, is much older than the vivacious 20-year-old Lorna, but Patience is determined to help her young friend make a good match. So why isn’t she happy when his lordship and Lorna seem to like each other’s company? The problem is that Patience is already madly in love with his lordship! 
 
An unexpected invitation arrives for Lorna and Patience to attend Lord Blackwood’s Valentine Ball. This is the perfect moment for him to propose to Lorna. Mysteriously, a corsage arrives from an anonymous admirer. Who is it for? And what will be the outcome for the wearer at Lord Blackwood’s Valentine Ball? 
 
 
 
This novella is the prequel to The Lady’s Revenge.

 


  
~ Universal Amazon Link ~ 
Snippet:
For her part, Patience had noticed everything about Lord Blackwood in one massive burst of clarity, as if his physical proximity heightened all her senses. The cleft in his firm chin, the somewhat tired look in his eyes that might be the sadness Henrietta mentioned, the way his coat fitted him so well across the breadth of his shoulders, his height which made her feel small and delicate, and the manly aura he exuded. He wore subtle spiced cologne water that she found appealing and strangely sensual, although she had pushed that wicked thought away, lest it cause more blushes. His eyes were hazel, flecked with green, and he had long dark eyelashes and straight black brows. It was futile to be the least bit interested in Lord Blackwood because he was not at all attracted to her. His smile for Lorna was caressing—or did she just imagine it?—and his glance fell upon Lorna’s fiery tresses and rose petal complexion with tenderness—or did she imagine that as well?

One thing’s for sure, the Twelve Days of Christmas will never seem quite the same again …

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

 

Dividing my time between homes in South-West France and Abu Dhabi, I live with my husband and our beautiful Tonkinese cat. I spent 20 years as a teacher of French, Latin and Classical studies, before a change of career led me to writing books for children instead.
Shadows from the Past is series of time-travel adventures, featuring 3 children and a rather special Tonkinese cat by the name of Max. I’m currently working on the tenth book in the series, The Shadow of the Witchfinder. Max also has a few solo adventures of his own to accompany the series.

As I take my young readers on a magical mystery tour through the past, I’m hoping that my love of history, myth and legend will rub off on them too.

 

 ~ Website ~
  
MAX’S ADVENTURES are spin-offs from my 
SHADOWS FROM THE PAST books.
A second solo adventure awaits Max the time-travelling Tonkinese cat in this Christmas short story. 
 
Invited to accompany a well-known figure on a whirlwind trip into the past, he sets off on a mission to search for something very precious to his owners Jemima and Joe Lancelot – their missing parents. 
 
The hunt reveals tantalising clues to this mystery and ends with a special surprise for the twins.

 

Max the talking Tonkinese cat has a third solo adventure in this seasonal short story.

What happens when the feline hero is trapped in the attic one night?

Will he escape the clutches of the Christmas fairy, a regiment of soldiers and three obstreperous French hens in time to enjoy a holiday with his family?
 

One thing’s for sure, the Twelve Days of Christmas will never seem quite the same again …



Snippet Book 3:
EXTRACT 1: Struggling to break loose, Max thrust his head out through
the tangle of tinsel and took a few gulps of air. From downstairs, he heard the
distant chimes of Uncle Richard’s grandfather clock and counted as it struck
twelve times. It was midnight.
 

 

EXTRACT 2: ‘What the Dickens is all this racket?’ barked the wooden
soldier, glaring at the fairy as he rubbed the sleep from his eyes. ‘Why have
you woken everyone up? You know the rules, Tinks. Christmas is still months
away.’

What have I done? I was a fool not to wait for Mr. Whittaker. Oh, Gareth, if only you were here…

Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.

 


In this delightful traditional Regency romance, Miss Diana Dashwood accepts an invitation to Lady Prescott’s Christmas party at Camden House, in the countryside. But things do not go quite as she imagined. Through an unexpected event, she is forced to spend the night in a woodsman’s hut with one of the guests. What a scandal! 
Of course, Sir Gareth Blakely must propose, and he does. Unfortunately, Miss Diana Dashwood has already been engaged to and broken off her engagement from Sir Gareth Blakely after a bitter quarrel. Is it likely she will bow to social pressure and accept his proposal, one made only to save her reputation, and if they marry, does their union stand a chance of survival? 
And what about the pretty heiress, Miss Jemima Plymstock, whom everyone thinks is the lady Sir Gareth had his eye upon? Headstrong and proud, Miss Diana Dashwood is caught in a dreadful dilemma. A must-read for Regency fans!
Snippet:
Diana stepped into the carriage as if hypnotized and sat next to Miss Plymstock. “What are you going to do to me?” she asked.
Mr. Rundle put on an expression of exaggerated surprise while Miss Taggart giggled behind one black-gloved hand. He stroked his beard.
“My dear Miss Dashwood, you are so imaginative. You make me sound like a villain in these romantic novels so popular with young ladies nowadays. I am going to do nothing to you. You will witness the marriage, along with Miss Taggart. I will begin my honeymoon with my lovely young bride, and the carriage will return you to town. Then you will, no doubt, make your way back to London and forget all about Jemima.”
He gave a leering wink.
“She will be too busy learning her new marital duties as Mrs. Rundle to keep up any acquaintance with you.”
He knocked on the roof of the carriage to signal the driver. Miss Plymstock moaned but did not wake. Diana looked out of the carriage window as the horses gained speed.
What have I done? I was a fool not to wait for Mr. Whittaker. Oh, Gareth, if only you were here.

Hunted by a ruthless mercenary, the boys are forced into the adventure they only dreamed about

The
Dragon Hunters
Histories
of Malweir Book 2
by
Christian Warren Freed
Genre:
Epic Fantasy
 
 
The
Mage Wars are a fading memory. The kingdoms of Malweir focus on
rebuilding what was lost and moving beyond the vast amounts of death
and devastation. For some it is easy, others far worse. Some men are
made in battle. Grelic of Thrae is one. A seasoned veteran of
numerous campaigns and raids, Grelic is a warrior without a war. He
languishes under mugs of ale and poor choices that eventually find
him locked in the dungeons of King Rentor. His only chance at
redemption is an offer tantamount to suicide: travel north with a
misfit band of adventurers and learn the truth of what happened in
the village of Gend.
Grelic,
suddenly tired of his life, reluctantly agrees and meets the only
survivor of the horrible massacre: Fitch Iane. Broken, mentally and
physically, Fitch babbles about demons stalking through the mists and
a terrible monster prowling the skies, breathing fire and death.
What
begins as a simple reconnaissance mission quickly turns into a quest
to stop Sidian, the Silver Mage from accomplishing his goals in the
Deadlands. The last of the dark mages seeks to recover the four
shards of the crystal of Tol Shere and open the gateway to release
the dark gods from their eternal prison.
Grelic
and his team are sorely outnumbered and ill prepared to deal with the
combined threats of a dark mage and one of the great dragons from the
west. Not even the might of the Aeldruin, high elf mercenaries, and
Dakeb, the last of the mages, promises to be enough to stop evil and
restore peace to Thrae.

Armies
of the Silver Mage
Histories
of Malweir Book 1
 
Malweir
was once governed by the order of Mages, bringers of peace and light.
Centuries past and the lands prospered. But all was not well. Unknown
to most, one mage desired power above all else. He turned his will to
the banished Dark Gods and brought war to the free lands. Only a
handful of mages survived the betrayal and the Silver Mage was left
free to twist the darker races to his bidding. The only thing he
needs to complete his plan and rule the world forever are the four
shards of the crystal of Tol Shere.

 

 

Having
spent most of their lives dreaming about leaving their sleepy village
and travelling the world, Delin Kerny and Fennic Attleford never
thought that one day they would be forced to flee their town in order
to save their lives. Everything changes when they discover the fabled
Star Silver sword and learn that there are some who want the weapon
for themselves. Hunted by a ruthless mercenary, the boys run from Fel
Darrins and are forced into the adventure they only dreamed
about.

 

 

Ever
ashamed of the horrors his kind let loose on the world the last mage,
Dakeb, lives his life in shadows. The only thing keeping him alive is
his quest to stop the Silver Mage from reassembling the crystal. His
chance finally comes through the hearts and wills of Delin and
Fennic. Dakeb bestows upon them the crystal shard, entrusting them
with the one thing capable of restoring peace to Malweir.

Dreams
of Winter
A
Forgotten Gods Tale Book 1
by
Christian Warren Freed
Genre:
Fantasy
 
Under
the rigid guidance of the Conclave; an order of holy men seeking to
bring back the glory of the time of the gods, the Order of the
Inquisition and their Prekhauten Guard divisions the seven hundred
known worlds carve out a new empire with the compassion and wisdom
the gods once offered. But a terrible secret, known only to the most
powerful, threatens to undo three millennia of progress. The gods are
not dead at all. They merely sleep. And they are being
hunted. 

 

 

Senior
Inquisitor Tolde Breed is sent to the planet Crimeat to investigate
the escape of one of the most deadly beings in the universe.
Amongeratix, one of the three sons of the god-king is loose once
again, the fabled Three. Tolde arrives on a world where heresy breeds
insurrection and war is only a matter of time. Tolde is aided by
Sister Abigail of the Order of Blood Witches in his quest to find
Amongeratix and return him to Conclave custody before he can begin
his reign of terror.

 

 

What
he doesn’t know is that the Three are already operating on Crimeat.
Each serves a different emotion: Vengeance, Sorrow and Redemption.
Their touch drives the various characters beyond themselves and
towards an uncertain future that can only end one of two ways. Either
the Three win and finally destroy the gods, or humanity stops them
and continues to survive.

A
Bread Shop Mystery #2
by
Winnie Archer
Genre:
Cozy Mystery
 
Business
is booming at Yeast of Eden. But with a deadly mystery taking over
the seaside town of Santa Sofia, the Mexican bread shop can’t
possibly leaven a killer’s appetite . . .
For
once, Ivy Culpepper feels fulfilled. An apprenticeship at Yeast of
Eden has opened her world to time-honored baking techniques under
owner Olaya Solis’s guidance—as well as the freshest small-town
gossip, courtesy of chatty regulars known as the Blackbird Ladies.
Ivy even begins accepting that she and restaurateur Miguel Baptista
may never again rekindle their romance—despite the undeniable
tension between them . . .
But
she’s tied to Miguel again when his trusted produce supplier goes
missing. Old Hank Riviera’s financial troubles would make anyone
consider running away forever. And with his relationship woes, there
are plenty of people who might want to see Hank disappear. As Ivy,
with the help of her octogenarian sidekick, turns to the loose-lipped
Blackbird Ladies for leads, she soon finds herself caught in a web of
lies stickier than a batch of Olaya’s popular pastries . . .

Jacobey - 
Anyone
who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never
met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I
work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often
in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be
dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the
middle of the night.

 

 


I
grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything
is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love
my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my
significant other, and many friends as well.


 

I
have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently
available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of
course, there will be many more stories to come.

Scott
I
have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write
both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many
influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not
help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa
Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura
Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list
by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my
desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my
dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year
old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful
of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty
of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my
laptop and coffee close by.

What if all the gods of the earth once existed?

Sunday, January 21st, 2018
Lightbringers:
The
Age of Myths and Legends
by
David Price
Genre:
Fantasy
 
What
if all the gods of the earth once existed? Long ago a superior race
once came to earth and became humanity’s gods. The story is set on
a post cataclysmic earth. Technology has vanished and been replaced
by magick. Myths and monsters once again roam the land.

 

 

Blending
H. P. Lovecraft’s mythos, with the numerous mythologies of the
earth created a rich mythic landscape. Two groups of gods once
descended on the earth, Lovecraft’s horrific alien, inhuman beings
and the superior, god-like race, known as the Watchers, (the Elder
Gods described by August Derleth).

 

 

Lightbringers is

***Reviews***

 

“David
Price’s LIGHTBRINGERS is exactly what I look for in a fantasy novel.
Fast paced, exhilarating and far removed from the cookie cutter
fiction you run across all too often. Do yourself a favor and read
this one!” — James A Moore, author of the SEVEN FORGES and
TIDES OF WAR series of novels.

 

 

“With
evocative language, powerful metaphor, and careful attention to
detail, Price brings us a world we can immerse ourselves in and not
want to leave.” — Irene Radford, author of The Dragon Nimbus
Novels, Merlin’s Descendants Series, and The Stargods Trilogy

 

 

“David
Price’s LIGHTBRINGERS mingles a broad spread of myth and genre
tropes into a fascinating tale. Adding touches of history, locales
and dark lore, Price weaves a fine tale that will grip even a casual
reader. LIGHTBRINGERS splits the darkness of a lurid world.
Fascinating, funny and paced to please, LIGHTBRINGERS shines.” —
Steven L. Shrewsbury, Author of PHILISTINE, OVERKILL, WITHIN and
co-author of KING OF THE BASTARDS (with Brian Keene) and BAD MAGICK
(with Nate Southard)

 

 

Interview:

Do you see writing as a career?

I’d sure like it to be! I’m currently involved in several writing organizations like the New England Horror Writers, the Horror Writers of Maine, the Horror Writers Association, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. I’m most heavily involved in the NEHW, as I’ve been one of the editors on their last three anthologies, Wicked Tales, Wicked Witches, and Wicked Haunted. For the HWOM I solo edited the horror anthology Northern Frights. That was a lot of work and I’m not sure I’d solo edit something again, at least not as long as I still have my day job. Maybe if I could write full time I’d reconsider that. I only have so much free time as it is and I need to pick and choose my projects wisely. Now that Lightbringers is finally out there, I really wanted to focus on getting the next book done. Can’t disappoint the readers!

 

Who designed your book covers?

My publisher, Crossroad Press has this fantastic in-house cover designer named David Dodd. The thing is, I wanted something with  little more of a classic fantasy book cover like the ones I grew up with and that really isn’t David’s thing. A few artists were suggested to me but I settled on Alex McVey, who is best known for doing much of the artwork for The Dark Tower series. That was exciting, working with someone who had worked on my of my most beloved series. I’m really thrilled with how the cover came out and I hope I can continue to use Alex in the future.

What can we expect from you in the future?

At least more six more books in the Lightbringers series, I hope. I originally plotted out the series for seven books, but I only got about to the halfway point of where I planned to finish book one. I was told new writers could only get away with so high of a word count or it wouldn’t sell, so I decided to find another point where I could break off the story. If it takes off enough, I could probably get away with higher word counts, but we’ll have to see. So six books, at least, if I have my way. And I’m sure you’ll see my name as editor on more anthologies in the future. I’ve already been approached about a couple, but most likely nothing this year, which is fine with me, because I really need to focus on the follow-up to Lightbringers. Aside from those projects, I have lots of ideas for short stories I’d like to write, the only problem is finding the time to write them. If only I could clone myself! What I really need is a better system of managing my free time. Eventually I’d like to work in a horror novel, maybe even a science fiction novel, here and there. For now, though, it’s full steam ahead in fantasy land.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Synopsis

 

To be extraordinary is rare, but to be unique is downright dangerous.

Rebecca Hunter thought senior year would be all about hockey games, parties, dances, and college applications. When Becca’s absentee mom dies, things take a drastic turn. She just inherited a super power, but has no idea what it is. And now instead of worrying about homework, she’s got a secret group from the FBI at her door looking to recruit her.

 

Her days of being an ordinary seventeen year old are over, because she’s one of a hundred people left in the world with superpowers. This covert group, Project Lightning, offers to train her, but soon they discover she doesn’t just have her mom’s power, she has more. And that’s never been seen before.

 

As they try to help her manipulate this new power, agents from Project Lightning go missing, and a few turn up dead. They’re being hunted. And when two men almost kidnap her, she realizes she’s being hunted too. What was supposed to be an amazing senior year has turned into brutal training to find the lost, protect those she loves, and harnessing this new power.
