The
Dream Defenders
by
Neal DenHartog
Genre:
YA Fantasy 
 

A
vivid, dangerous dream world. Real-life consequences. Better ready
your defense.

When
fourteen-year-old Nolan Erling wakes up with a headache for the
fourth straight day, he suspects the likely culprit to be any number
of things—from his annoying baby brother, to vehicular crashes with
his elderly neighbor, or even his questionable late-night food
choices—not his dreams.

 

 

Aeryn
Sandman knows the true cause, though. She is a junior agent with the
DREAM Institute, a secret organization tasked with protecting the
world’s population while they sleep, and she’s on her first
assignment.

 

 

Her
mission: infiltrate Nolan’s life—and his dreams—and keep him
safe, all while persuading him to join their protective force.

 

 

But
recruitment missions are no walk in the park, and Aeryn’s goes
horribly wrong when Nolan’s powers unwittingly unleash two dream
creatures locked away in a restricted area of the dream world. While
Aeryn and Nolan search for ways to contain the escaped beings, they
uncover a much greater conspiracy.

 

 

For
these dreams can kill, and someone is orchestrating their actions in
the dream world. If Aeryn and Nolan can’t figure out who is behind
it, no dreamer will be safe, and neither will the organization that
defends them.

 

Discover
a book with a fresh voice, genuinely humorous characters, and a
compelling, original storyline. The Dream Defenders will
appeal to readers of all ages.

Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom they can trust and who is behind the plot

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019


Thanks for stopping by! Take a look at this brand-new fantasy adventure story with a hint of romance by author Annie Douglass Lima. 
You can download a copy of the ebook for free between July 9th and 11th!

Book Description:
    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?

Series Information:



King of Malorn is book 5 in the Annals

of Alasia. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the others; it will still make sense on its own. 


Each of the first four books can stand on its own as well. They each deal with events surrounding the same major political incident: the invasion
of the kingdom of Alasia by the neighboring kingdom of Malorn. 



Prince of Alasia begins on the night of the Invasion and
describes what happens to twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin after he is forced to
flee for his life. 

In
the Enemy’s Service

features a girl as the protagonist and tells the story of those who were not
able to escape from the Alasian palace when the enemy invaded. 

Prince of Malorn begins several months earlier and
focuses on the Malornian perspective of the events leading up to the
Invasion. 

The Nameless Soldier shows how a young Alasian soldier lives through the Invasion but then has to survive and make a name for himself in enemy-occupied Alasia. 


In each of the books, main
characters from the others make brief appearances and interact with each other
at the point where the timeframes and settings overlap. 



I also have a short
ebook of “interviews” that I conducted with the characters in the other three
books. Annals of Alasia: The Collected
Interviews
is not available on Amazon, but I send a free copy to anyone who
signs
up for my mailing list

(to receive updates when I release new books or occasionally offer them for free).

Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to create a relationship that will last?

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

 

 

Britney Mills was born in Utah but
parts of her heart lie in Boston, Washington D.C. and Germany. Her love of
writing began with the third grade book her teacher assigned her to write and
she spent hours hidden behind her mother’s couch writing pages and pages about
knights and castles. Now she writes about romance. Go figure.
When she’s not mothering her 4 small children, writing or reading, she’s
probably out playing a sport, going on a hike, or binge watching a murder mystery
series. The way to her heart is through homemade chocolate chip cookies and
five minutes peace.

 

A self-made billionaire, his real
estate agent and three weeks to find the right property.
Jackson Walker hasn’t had the best family life. Growing up in the foster system
in Australia, it wasn’t until he met his college football coach that he
understood what a normal family looked like. When he gets the call that Coach
has passed away, he returns to California for the funeral and to find a place
to honor the man. 

Hailey Montgomery threw herself into real estate soon after breaking up with
her boyfriend nearly five years ago. She’s been working to build a name for
herself and when the chance to make partner at her firm becomes available, she
jumps at the chance. But the only way to achieve that distinction is to find a
commercial property for the guy she’s nicknamed ‘Golden Boy’ from all the
stories her father told about him. 

As spending time together brings them closer, the trust between them is called into
question. Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to
create a relationship that will last?

 

Snippet:
Hailey
brushed her mom’s hair for a moment and then asked, “What will you do now?”
Her mom sat up and looked at her. “What
do you mean?”
“I mean, you and Dad did everything
together. You traveled with him to so many games. What will you do with your
time now?”
Her mom gave her a look of irritation.
“I loved your father dearly, and I am so grateful for all the years we had
together. But don’t think for a minute that I’ll sit and have a pity
party.”
Hailey raised an eyebrow. “What do you
call this?” Her mom swatted her across the shoulder.

 

 

“It’s okay to cry when you’ve lost the
love of your life. And I’ll probably have moments like that down the road. But
I’ve got you, Junior and Penny to worry about.” She gave Hailey a half-smile
and said, “When you get married, you’ll understand what it’s like. That you
give up parts of yourself to gain so many others. I’m not the same person I was
before I met your father, and I’m grateful for that journey.”

Bobby
Ether and the Jade Academy
by
R. Scott Boyer
Genre:
YA Fantasy Adventure 
 
“Bobby
Ether and the Jade Academy is a thrilling action-packed adventure you
never want to end.” 
—IndieReader
4.5 stars

 

When
Bobby Ether is abducted and brought to the secluded Jade Academy in
Tibet, monks teach him and other special students how to tap into
their Anima—the universal energy that connects all living things. 
But
the headmistress of the academy is secretly testing each student,
looking for genetic triggers that can be exploited to create a new
breed of humans born with metaphysical powers and abilities. As his
abilities increase, Bobby is thrust into a cesspool of conspiracy,
lies, and betrayal. A jade amulet left by his clairvoyant grandfather
may provide answers, but what exactly is his family’s connection to
this mysterious place? Can Bobby master his talents and uncover the
truth in time to avoid the schemes? If not, his fate—and the fate
of all the students—may be sealed.

Dark times are upon the land of
Nereth. Centuries have passed since the rightful heir to the throne was
banished. The people are losing hope in ancient legend, which foretells of one
who will rise up, overthrow the evil king and queen, and restore peace. Like
all others in Nereth, Edlyn has suffered greatly. Orphaned as a child, Edlyn
grew up as the serf of a drunken lord. Now a spirited seventeen-year-old, Edlyn
works to buy her freedom while fighting off the unwanted advances of Sheriff
Hurst. One morning, Edlyn discovers a young man hiding in the stable. He is
fleeing from Sheriff Hurst and inflicted with a sword wound that will surely be
fatal without her help. In a split-second decision, Edlyn conceals the young
man from Sheriff Hurst and begins nursing him back to health. As the young
man’s strength returns, Edlyn learns that his name is Maddock, and she is
stunned to find that he has come from the mysterious land to the north. Maddock
soon comes to Edlyn’s aid, rescuing her from Sheriff Hurst. Suddenly declared
outlaws, both Edlyn and Maddock must escape for their lives to enchanted
Ravenshire Forest and then the desolate mountains beyond. As their adventure
unfolds, Edlyn and Maddock discover that their meeting may have been more than
chance, for their lives prove bound by a fate that neither of them could
possibly have imagined.

Snippet:
Edlyn slowly turned to Maddock. “I
presume this is about you.”
            Maddock
did not respond. Wincing, he reached out with one arm to brace himself against
the wall while keeping his other hand pressed on his abdomen.
            “I
could be imprisoned for helping a fugitive, or killed,” Edlyn went on
frankly, shutting the stable door. “It depends on what you have
done.”
            Maddock
found his voice, “I will not put you in danger.”
            He
made another move to leave but swayed and began to fall. Edlyn lunged forward,
catching Maddock in her arms. Staggering under the weight of his limp body, she
lowered him to the dirt.
            “Help
me leave. I must get away from here,” Maddock begged, attempting to get
up.
            From
the sounds outside, Edlyn knew that the riders were nearly upon them. She also
saw that Maddock’s breathing was growing shallow and the life in his dark eyes
fading. He would not escape those who hunted him. For one moment, Edlyn
hesitated, looking between Maddock and the stable door. Then she spoke upward,
as if to the sky:
            “This
young man might be an outlaw, but may the spirits of Ravenshire Forest curse me
for eternity if I ever help Sheriff Hurst.”

children (and grandchild), my passion is writing. My current project is The
Three Crowns Series. Sweet Tea is the first book in this seven-novel series

Besides reading and writing, I enjoy singing. I love music period. Music is in
our family. Whether it be the bluegrass from the Ozarks that my Grandpa Sutton
use to play on his banjo or fiddle, or the smooth, family harmony in which I am
fortunate enough to sing with my Dad and Brother. But you can give me some
kickin’ AC/DC too! I like it all!I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. Every free moment is dedicated
to my family and my current project, The Three Crowns, a seven-novel paranormal

“We
have to get out now!”
I could
feel the intensity of each word being yelled to me from this guy standing over
me. I didn’t know him, yet…I did. My heart was pounding. Fire was all around
us. Smoke was heavy in the air. Where was I? Throughout the large room, the
murk was cut as bodies were thrown through the air, and swords swung faster
than my eyes could follow. I heard loud gnashing and growling all around me,
and the smell of flesh burning filled my nose. There was only one place I could
possibly be. Hell.  
I
looked down and took notice of my torn and blood-drenched clothes. A panic
blanketed me as my thoughts ran rapid. How could this be? Am I going to die?
What am I doing in hell?
“We
have to go now!” The guy exclaimed, grabbing my arm. His eyes gleamed with a
mission. He stood strong and with purpose. He appeared fearless. He looked to
be my age. Wait. What is my age right now? Am I seventeen? I feel like…I’ve
lived a thousand lives, yet haven’t even begun to live. I took a deep breath,
trying to focus on the moment. And if all I had was this moment, then I had to
move or be moved (or die more like it!).
I arose
to my feet, feeling very weak. I looked down to keep from stumbling, and
screamed in horror. A man’s body lay close to my feet. His head lay next to his
body. I felt tears starting to burn in my eyes from complete fear that had
taken hold of me. As I gasped in shock, I noticed a few more feet away from the
first body lay another body crumpled on the floor. Again, his head was next to
his body…and another body! Oh God! Please show me the door out of this
nightmare! I quickly turned away and tried to run. I didn’t get four feet when
I tripped. I gathered myself and tried getting up as quickly as I could. When I
looked to see what I had tripped over, I couldn’t help but scream. It was
another headless body. But this time it was a woman! As I scrambled up, I
looked over to the left of the body, and there was her head about five feet
away. My blood ran cold as chills climbed my spine. Fear had found me as
though it had been seeking me. I could almost hear the haunting echoes of his
laugh ringing in my head as he closed in on taking what little courage remained
in my possession. This fear wanted more than just my courage-he wanted my
soul. My soul he could not have! A new strength consumed me and I pushed on
through the nightmare.

‘Touch me, Roosa. You will see I’m real
enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears on his
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races
up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand back
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

“Gods,
but I’m a fool,” Taran groaned. Cal snorted and Taran glanced at him. “I wish
I’d taken your advice. I never should have gone.”
Cal
frowned and Taran paused before adding, “Cal, I killed someone.”
Cal’s
dark eyes widened and he slumped to the bed, staring in disbelief. “How the
hell did that happen?”

No matter who dares you, no matter what lures you, do not go in the spooky old house…

Monday, June 17th, 2019
Ann has been a writer since junior high, but to
pay the bills she has waited tables, delivered newspapers, cleaned other
people’s houses, taught school, and had a stint as a secretary in a rock-n-roll
radio station. She also worked as a 911 operator and a police dispatcher. 


Her fiction began to win awards during her college days. Since then she’s
published several short stories, novels, and novellas. She’s always reading and
always writing, but even if she never sold another story, Ann would not stop
writing. For her it’s a necessity, like breathing. Most of the time, it even
keeps her sane.

It was the late 60s. The Beatles had washed across America like a
British tsunami, Vietnam was a grainy, green and black dose of unreality on the
evening news, a bunch of hippies had taken over San Francisco, and there was a
heck of a rainstorm pouring down on Woodstock. But I didn’t know all that then.
I was a little bit lost, looking for something. I swear I didn’t go looking for
a ghost…well, okay, maybe I did. But I didn’t expect to find one. Heck, I was
just a kid. I didn’t expect much of anything.

Within weeks of starting at Genesis, Nia witnesses something she shouldn’t have

Friday, June 14th, 2019

 

 

Christina Enquist is a YA author and aspiring bookstore owner. She lives with her boyfriend and several pets in Visalia, Ca.

Would you sacrifice your humanity to save mankind?
 
IT’S THE YEAR 2828, and Domus is the last remaining country. Divided into twelve walled cities known as genuses, Domus spans what’s known as the purist lands—lands unaffected by the genetic modifications that killed all other species of mammals. But outside the walls of each genus the Immundus threaten the welfare of those within. From a young age, all citizens of Domus are trained for combat against these intruders.
 

 

At sixteen, Nia Luna knows little of the Immundus, except for the citywide alarms that ring any time an Immundus nears the genus walls. What she does know is that her own species is dying—their numbers dwindling as a mysterious disease called allagine kills many before their eleventh birthday. The same disease that ravaged her family when it took her sister.
 
When Nia is recruited into Genesis, a research company pioneering the path to a cure, she knows that her dream to find a cure for allagine is finally within her grasp. But within weeks of starting at Genesis, Nia witnesses something she shouldn’t have—something that changes everything. As she sets down a dangerous path that uncovers national secrets, Nia will have to decide not only what kind of person she wants to be but also how far she’s willing to go to save humanity.

Snippet:
I walk down the expansive
hallway. Most doors are closed, but the door to Calculus class is still open
and Mrs. Wiler is at the front of the classroom teaching. I tiptoe through the
door, hoping she won’t say anything, but the rickety-rackety-clackety of my
shoes yanks my classmates’ attention toward me—eyes prickling my skin as I make
my way to my seat. I plop myself down, the lumbar of the seat adjusts to my
body, and the desk swings into position in front of me.
“Glad you could join us,
Nia,” Mrs. Wiler says, her voice thick with sarcasm. Calculus is not my
favorite topic. I think it’s because the teacher has had it in for me all year.
I can get by, but only with Alex’s help. I’m so glad he’s in my class.
“Glad I could be here.” I give her a
just-leave-me-alone smile. She doesn’t seem too enthused by my response, but
it’s enough to appease her, so she continues her lesson.
Sabrina leans over the
moment Mrs. Wiler turns away. “Great game last night.” Sabrina’s soft voice
surfs the air like cumulus clouds on a calm day. She’s one of the brightest
students in class, and I picture her on the Genus Council one day. She’s not a
hologram either, which is nice. We attend classes with students in other
genuses, though not in person. Instead, 4D holographic forms appear in their
stead here, and I appear the same to them there. We can see, touch, hear, and
smell the students even though they aren’t here. Still. You can tell
the difference.
“Thanks,” I say.
A hand touches my left
shoulder from behind. “Alex wants you to check your messages,” whispers Robert,
a hologram from Genus Amatista, which is on the other side of Domus and used to
be called Canada. I open my messages on the screen on my desk—or dreen, as we
like to call it—being watchful of the teacher. I’m greeted by Alex’s avatar
holding balloons and throwing confetti that forms a message. It’s a group
message to Eric, Casey, and I. In tall black serif letters it reads:
It was great being teammates. Let’s all go to the promotion
party together
after apprenticeship selection.
“Alex, what would you say
is the answer to this problem?” Mrs. Wiler inquires, pointing to the
calculation on the media wall. I wonder if she knows Alex sent a message
out—she’s freaky that way. Alex scribbles on his dreen, sending the equation
and answer to the media wall for all to see. He figures out the problems in
seconds, which is why I’m glad he’s in my class. Two thumbs up appear on my
dreen from Casey and Eric. I
add my own.

There’s a lot of mystery and a murder that’s been unsolved for decades

Monday, June 3rd, 2019
An avid gardener, artist, musician and writer, Emily-Jane Hills Orford has fond memories and lots of stories that evolved from a childhood growing up in a haunted Victorian mansion. Told she had a ‘vivid imagination’, the author used this talent to create stories in her head to pass tedious hours while sick, waiting in a doctor’s office, listening to a teacher drone on about something she already knew, or enduring the long, stuffy family car rides. The author lived her stories in her head, allowing her imagination to lead her into a different world, one of her own making. 

As the author grew up, these stories, imaginings and fantasies took to the written form and, over the years, she developed a reputation for telling a good story. Emily-Jane can now boast that she is an award-winning author of several books, including Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (Telltale Publishing 2018), Queen Mary’s Daughter (Clean Reads 2018), Gerlinda (CFA 2016) which received an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, To Be a Duke (CFA 2014) which was named Finalist and Silver Medalist in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 Readers’ Favorite Book Awards and several other books. A retired teacher of music and creative writing, she writes about the extra-ordinary in life and the fantasies of dreams combined with memories.

There is a hidden treasure in the
grand old mansion on Piccadilly Street, in a place called London, but not the
real London of English fame. There’s also a lot of mystery and a murder that’s
been unsolved for decades. But it’s the treasure that captures Mary’s interest.
 
Mary lives in this house along with her family, her Brownie friends and a
ghost. When the ghost reveals her secret about the hidden treasure, there’s no
stopping Mary, her Brownie friends, or her enemies to searching for this
treasure. 
 
Why the intrigue? Apparently there’s a little bit of magic connected
with this treasure. And so the adventure begins. 
 
Who will find the treasure
first?
 
 
 

 


  
~ Universal Amazon Link ~ 
  
My Review:

The Piccadilly Street Series, book two, Mrs. Murray’s Hiding Treasure by Emily Jane Hill Orford is a magical and great read for elementary school children. It is clean, easy to read and entertaining. The characters are well done, interesting and a good mix for children’s books. They consist of: a witch, Penelope; the savior and main character, Mary; her best friend and guardian, Rosie; the brownies; and the Ghost, Mrs. Murray.

In the first book, Mary gets sick due to an enchantment from Penelope and almost dies. While her body fights the sickness, her spirit appears in a magic world. When Mary finally comes back, the witch, her assistant Elizabeth, and a brownie trapped there a century,came back with her. In her quest to find Mrs. Murray’s treasure the witch makes life impossible for Mary and her friend Rosie. The brownies and Mrs. Murray are kept on their toes trying to save the girls.

This is a well done, great read for the whole family and a good addition to anyone’s library.

Snippet:
Once the house
settled down for the night, Mrs. Murray, the resident ghost, was out on her
nocturnal prowl. Satisfied that the house was safe and secure for the night,
after all the musical vibrations that shook the rafters earlier, she took her
place at the end of Mary’s bed and waited patiently for the girl to stir from
her sleep and take note of her presence.
            “What?”
Mary groaned, pulling her eyes open as she emerged from a deep sleep. “What
now?”
            “We
need to talk.” The wispy figure of what was once a very distinguished looking
lady, sat down at the end of Mary’s bed and looked the girl firmly in the eye.
            “Now?”
Mary groaned. “It’s the middle of the night. What time is it?”
            “What
difference does it make? Sit up and let’s talk.” The ghost was not going to
take ‘no’ for an answer. And, it would appear, feigning sleep would not send
her away either. So, Mary pushed herself into a sitting position and rubbed her
eyes again, hoping to eradicate the sleep that threatened to make them close.
            “Where
are the others? Where’s Brunny?” she asked.
            “Asleep
in their little space. And it’s not a natural sleep either. They’re all in the
deepest of sleeps, all except Elizabeth, who slipped out of the house a few
hours ago, just after the lights went out and your family snuggled in for the
night.” Mrs. Murray slid a little closer to Mary. “She’s still not right, that
Elizabeth. She’s good and well shackled by that witch.”

A promising new YA series about a totalitarian America

Sunday, May 19th, 2019
Counteract
Resistance
Series Book 1
by
Tracy Lawson
Genre:
YA Dystopian Adventure
 
Who
do you trust when your world unravels and everything you believed is
a lie?

 

 

For
the past fifteen years, The Office of Civilian Safety and Defense has
guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism. Teenagers
Tommy and Careen have never known life without Civilian Restrictions.
For them, there’s no social media. No one is allowed to gather in
public places or attend concerts or sporting events. Only a small,
select group of adults have driving privileges, but it’s a small
price to pay for safety.

 

 

Now
a new, more deadly, terrorist threat looms: airborne chemical weapons
that can be activated without warning. The OCSD is ready with an
antidote to counteract the effects of the toxins. Three drops a day
is all it takes. It’s a small price to pay for health.

 

 

The
day the disaster sirens signal the dreaded attack, Tommy shares his
last dose with Careen, even though doing so might hasten his death.
It’s a small price to pay for a friend.Follow Tommy and Careen as
they uncover a web of lies and deceit reaching to the highest levels
of the United States government and join an underground resistance
group that’s determined to expose the truth.

 

 

“Counteract
is a novel for our times, but with a decidedly different plot twist.
Most dystopian thrillers focus on the devastating consequences of the
unleashed virus or poison on society, community, and the individual.
They become character studies of the protagonists and
antagonists.

 

 

“Tracy
Lawson’s novel asks an even more disturbing question–what if the
real culprit was someone or something we trusted? I thought The
Hunger Games might be the Millennial generation’s version of George
Orwell’s 1984. Now, I think Counteract and the Resistance Series are
more primed to take that spot.”–SR Staley, author of St. Nic,
Inc., and the Tortuga Bay series.

 

Goodreads
* Amazon
 
 
 
 
Resist
Resistance
Series Book 2
 
“I
loved the first book in this series so much that I jumped right into
the second one to continue the adventure. The Resistance Series is
another great YA dystopian adventure that combines elements of
thriller, romance, dystopian, and much more to create a well-rounded
story that is sure to appeal to many readers – it definitely has my
attention.”–TFL Reader, top 500 Amazon Reviewer

 

 

Knowledge
comes with a price.

 

 

Tommy
and Careen no longer believe the Office of Civilian Safety and
Defense’s miracle antidote can protect them from a terrorist’s
chemical weapons. After accidentally discovering the antidote’s real
purpose,they’ve join the fight to undermine the OCSD’s bid for total
control of the population.

 

 

Being
part of the Resistance brings with it a whole new set of challenges.
Not everyone working for change proves trustworthy, and plans to
spark a revolution go awry with consequences far beyond anything they
bargained for.

 

 

Tommy
and Careen’s differing viewpoints threaten to drive a wedge between
them, and their budding relationship is tested as their destinies
move toward an inevitable confrontation with the forces that
terrorize the nation.

 

 

Where
does love fit in when you’re trying to start a
revolution?

 

 

“Dystopian
YA literature needs more writers like Tracy Lawson! Lawson’s lean
writing style and idea-driven dialogue reminded me of the novels of
Ayn Rand, particularly Anthem, but Resist is much faster paced and
holds your attention from the beginning.

 

 

“Resist
picks up right where the first book, Counteract, leaves off, and
readers are thrown immediately into the action. I also loved the way
Lawson doesn’t give her characters the easy way out–they are forced
to make decisions and suffer the consequences. These are real people
that anchor the story, even if the setting is not.” –SR Staley,
author of St. Nic, Inc. and the Tortuga Bay series

Ignite
Resistance
Series Book 3
 
The
Greatest Risk Is To Take No Risk At All.

 

 

Nationwide
food shortages have sparked civil unrest, and the Office of Civilian
Safety and Defense’s hold on the people is slipping. The
Resistance’s efforts to hasten the OCSD’s demise have resulted in
disaster, with Tommy Bailey and Careen Catecher taking the blame for
the ill-fated mission in OP-439.

 

 

Both
teens struggle to survive the circumstances that force them into the
national spotlight—and this time, they’re on opposite sides. On
the run and exiled from the Resistance members in BG-098, Tommy makes
his way to a Resistance safe house in the capital.

 

 

The
OCSD is preparing to monitor all under-eighteens with the Cerberean
Link, a device that protects them against hunger and sickness and can
even locate them if they’re lost. Tommy’s now living in close
quarters with Atari, an operative who has been assigned to sabotage
the Link. But does Atari plan to use it for his own
purposes?

 

 

Through
it all, Tommy refuses to believe Careen’s loyalties have shifted
away from the Resistance, and he’s willing to assume any risk to
reconnect with her. Will they be able to trust each other when it
matters most?

Revolt
Resistance
Series Book 4
 
The
Explosive Conclusion to the Award-Winning Resistance Series

 

 

To
Deny Freedom is to Deny the Human Spirit.

 

 

Fugitive
Resistance fighter Tommy Bailey has come out of hiding to help rescue
Careen Catecher from the clutches of the Office of Civilian Safety
and Defense, where she’s been held and interrogated for information
about the rebel group. The OCSD is poised to launch the Cerberean
Link, a security device that will put all minors under constant
surveillance under the guise of protecting them.

 

 

Fearful
that OCSD director Madalyn Davies’s bid for control won’t stop
there, the Resistance puts its own plan in motion to sabotage the
Link and oust Madalyn from the directorship. Just when everything
seems leveraged in the Resistance’s favor, treachery, lies, and
long-held secrets threaten to derail it all.

 

 

Will
even a life together on the run be impossible for Tommy and Careen?
Or will the Resistance’s efforts convince the public to put their
fears aside and demand freedom?

Careen’s
Prequel to the Resistance Series
 
“What
was our heroine Careen Catecher like BEFORE she became a firebrand
for the Resistance? Well, she was just a normal teenage girl trying
to survive college in the totalitarian state of Tracy Lawson’s
creation.” –review by Patrick Hodges

 

 

“Careen
is a believable, strong female protagonist who, having survived a
harrowing terrorist attack, is now trying to survive [college] in a
new ‘Quadrant’ where she can’t seem to fit in.” –review by
Candace Williams

 

 

A
strong heroine is made, not born.

 

 

Though
Careen Catecher survived a terrorist attack when she was nine, her
childhood ended on that awful day. Now, nine years later, she’s
ready for her life to truly begin.

 

 

A
full scholarship to a prestigious university far from her beleaguered
home quadrant seems like a dream come true, but when she arrives on
campus, she’s perceived as a charity case, despite grades and test
scores that prove she’s the academic equal of the best students
there.

 

 

Careen
knows she’s tough enough to survive just about anything, but
fitting in with her acquisitive peers—at least on the surface—is
necessary if she’s going to leave the past behind and claim the
stable future she craves.

 

 

But
her past won’t stay buried. She’s only been at school for a few
weeks when a cryptic message from an unlikely friend raises questions
that may put her in danger all over again.

Series, “a promising new YA series about a totalitarian America.”

Tracy
Lawson knew she wanted to be a writer from the time she could read.
In the first grade, she authored sixty-seven contact-paper bound
books through her school’s Young Authors program. Though that pace
proved impossible to maintain, she always intended to be a real
author one day. 

 

 

While
working toward her Bachelor’s degree in Communication at Ohio
University, she studied creative writing with the late Daniel Keyes,
author of Flowers for Algernon. After short stints as a media buyer
and an investigative analyst, she settled into a 20-year career in
the performing arts, teaching tap dancing in Columbus, Ohio, and
choreographing musicals. Though her creative energies were focused on
dance, she never lost her desire to write, and has a non-fiction book
to her credit: Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More, (McDonald &
Woodward, 2012).

 

 

Tracy’s
love for writing Young Adult fiction is sparked by all the wonderful
teens in her life, including her daughter Keri, a college student.
Counteract is Tracy’s first novel.

Thugs chase him, the scientists in Hell want to prod and examine the first possessed demon in history, and he can’t find the darn grimoire

Monday, May 13th, 2019
The
Good Inside Me
by
Barbara Russell
Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance 
 
Dragons,
short-tempered archdemons, and hysterical damned souls—Shax is used
to dealing with all that. He’s a young fire demon and lives in
Hell, after all. What he’s not used to is being possessed by a
human. A very good human and a pretty girl at that: sixteen-year-old
Tolis. Despite still having control of his body most of the time,
Shax can hear Tolis’s voice inside his head and feels what she
feels constantly.
Shax’s
mentor claims that Tolis hides an ancient, powerful grimoire, a book
of spells, and proposes a deal: if Shax finds it, he’ll help Shax
get work as a dragon keeper—Shax’s dream job. Tolis swears she
doesn’t have the grimoire and asks Shax to help her father, whose
soul is turning evil by the minute. Unless Tolis does something, her
dad’s soul will end in Hell. Hoping to convince her to give him the
grimoire, and not because Shax cares about the man’s soul, he
agrees to help.
Goodness
is overrated. Since Shax decided to help Tolis, his life has turned
into a hurdle race. Thugs chase him, the scientists in Hell want to
prod and examine the first possessed demon in history, and he can’t
find the darn grimoire.
And
the worst part? Due to the unavoidable presence of Tolis, who keeps
intruding into his evil thoughts, Shax discovers an almost decent
side of himself. In no time at all, he catches himself doing actual
good deeds. Is he becoming—yuck—good?

and save themselves, or risk the very landscape they hold so
dear.
