Abracadabra
by K. Stevens
Genre: Paranormal Urban Fantasy
.
Rod’s a trickster by trade, magician by hobby, and thief by night. But when an old friend hunts him down and asks a favor, he can’t refuse. Mostly because she’ll likely try to kill him before asking again. But also because it presents a very interesting puzzle: to hunt down what a half-elf, magic weapons, and a killer-led cult of shapeshifters have to do with each other.
Lucky for him, Rod has the ability to be in three places at once. The problem? Even he can’t always tell which him is the real him.

To this day, she hesitantly struggles to keep one foot in reality while the rest of her remains firmly rooted in the fantastic and insane. In 2015, she finally worked up enough courage to share her stories with more than just her family, and was encouraged by the fact that she wasn’t eaten alive for it. She may be the crazy lady that talks to bugs and stares incessantly into the sky, but don’t mind her. She’s just thinking.

I was raised by fairies in a sylvan glade under a massive oak tree. My early life was spent wandering fields and woods searching for acorns and berries and staring at the cloud shadows racing across the landscape while listening to the whispers on the wind. The woods have always called to me, their silken tones luring me onto narrow paths leading to the hidden magical places.
Magic and the mystical are alive and well in all my books. Celtic and Norse fantasy, time travel, murder mixed up with ghosts, humor and romance, and a shapeshifting coyote, all inhabit my novels. If confused about where to begin–start with Moonstone, book 1 of Wolfmoon.
My books are not what you would call literature, and yet they are not mere entertainment either. They are unique–humorous at times, sad at times, and page-turners that take the reader into a world separate from this one. I do not write to market, I write from my heart.
I couldn’t stop writing if I tried–it is the heart and soul of me now. I am still astounded by how my characters lead me on, taking me down meandering paths where I hadn’t planned to go. The muse sits on my shoulder most days, and when she’s absent I flounder and realize I need a break. I love all things magic, including the Tarot, the runes, divination of all kinds, ghosts, clairvoyance, astral travel–you name it. Magic is all around us if only we open our eyes to it.
I lived in the Pacific Northwest for sixteen years before moving to the desert southwest with my husband, a cat and a dog. The move was hard because I left family behind, but Arizona is a wonderful place to be and the weather, at least in the winter, is delightful!
In my spare time I do yoga, hike, garden, and enjoy the bird and animal life that abound in the desert. Check my blog http://jalapenosandjavelina.blogspot.com/ for tales of close encounters with rattlesnakes, coyotes and javelina!

When the questionable cellphone photo of a flying black reptile is splashed over the internet, online news reporter Crystal Logan ventures to the small town of Winchester to find out just how real this alleged sighting is.

In the Black Sky Mountains of Colorado, Sheriff Derek Reaves has worked hard to maintain his quiet rural life. Now thanks to a paranoid tourist who swears he spotted a fairytale monster, hundreds of crazy supernatural and alien seekers are flooding Winchester for their own encounter of the bizarrest kind.
Unfortunately one beautiful news lady is a lot savvier, nosier and tenacious than all the others. If he’s not careful, Cryss Logan may very well uncover the dangerous secret Derek has hidden all these years, threatening not only his safe, peaceful life, but his very existence.
Unless he can find a way to stop her first.

The
Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman
by
Robin Gregory
Genre:
Fantasy, Magical Realism
Early

and uncontrolled mystical powers, Moojie is taken by his father to
his grandfather’s wilderness farm. There, Moojie meets an
otherworldly clan of outcasts that he wants to join. Following a
series of misadventures–magical and mystical–he is summoned by the
call to a great destiny … if only he can survive one last
terrifying trial.

 

 

Having
won a number of awards, Robin Gregory’s The Improbable Wonders of

Wrinkle in Time, the profoundly unique voice and heart-stirring
narrative recall great works of fiction that explore the universal
desire to belong.
