I’m
an entomologist and a soil biologist, which is a fancy way to say

always been my passion. I was a kid when I read The Lord Of The Ring
and fell in love with fantasy novels.
When
I discovered cozy mystery and crime novels, I fell in love with
Hercules Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. Then I grew up and . . . Nah,
I’m joking. I didn’t grow up. Don’t grow up, folks! It’s a

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.

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?

Spark
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.

 

 

Check
out this novella-length prequel to the award-winning Resistance
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?

The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Friday, April 19th, 2019

Please tell us your name?
My name is Kelvyn Fernandes, author of The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Kelvyn, where were you born?
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, but my parents immigrated to Canada from Mombasa, Kenya.

Cool…how long have you been writing?
Ever since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about writing. I’ve always had running storylines and new ideas constantly popping into my head. I’ve written a few short stories, but this is my first full-length novel and I’m excited to share it with the world.

Interesting, Who are your favorite authors?
My favourite authors are George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and Haruki Murakami. Growing up, I enjoyed reading the works of JK Rowling, Emily Rodda, Kathryn Lasky, and Christopher Paolini.

Loved the Aragon Series too. Tell us why you wrote your new book?
I’ve always had ideas for fantastical tales and far-off adventures running through my mind. They would blast their way into my imagination, linger awhile, and then move on so the next idea could take its place. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi is the first story that I will never forget. It’s the story that popped into my mind and refused to leave. The characters took hold and dragged me through a tale of incredible monsters, interesting characters, and jaw-dropping settings I had buried away in my imagination. It got to the point where the adventures started writing themselves. I had formed these characters so clearly in my mind that I no longer had to think about what they’d say or how they’d react. It was like watching a movie; I was just bearing witness to what they would do next.

I love it when characters do that. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi, what is it about?
The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi follows the titular characters as they work together, each searching for something uniquely special to them through the four kingdoms of their known world. It’s a tale of fantastical beasts, peculiar characters, remarkable settings, and a unique brand of biochemistry-based magic. A story that focuses on meaningful character interaction, delicate world building, and intense action battles.

What age is The many adventure of Peter and Fi intended for?

I’d say the main demographic is 13-25, but the story is meant for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a fantasy world.

Sounds interesting. Is there a book trailer for your book?

She’s
a legend at 17, but only Henrietta knows the price she paid for her
fame … and it was much too high.

 

 

From
the Winner of the California Fiction Writer’s Book Contest comes this
thrilling adventure of a young warrior on one final quest … against
an opponent she swore never to face again.

 

 

Henrietta,
the legendary Dragon Slayer of Bleuve, can’t face the thought of
another kill. She’s lost family, friends and home on her rocky road
to fame. But when the young warrior is summoned by a King to retrieve
the Dragon Stone from the last dragon in existence, she can’t re
fuse–her mentor lies dying, and the healing stone is all that can
save him. This quest will be her most harrowing of all, for it means
facing mysterious assassins, the dreaded choppy sea, and all with a
misfit band–a young witch, a jester and a surly knight. And at
journey’s end, someone must die … the dragon, or
Henrietta.

to aid her friends?

 

 

Jaxter,
now a king, must come to terms with the heavy responsibilities of
ruling the Oro Islands, newly emerged from over 75 years of evil
rule. This means doing right, even when it means going against
ancient customs and protocols. Worse, the marauding Varangians press
at his borders. He must find a way to defend his home, or none of
them will survive.

 

 

Will
Henrietta and her friends be able to stop the ruthless sorcerer from
obliterating her, claiming the Dragon Stone, and ruling over the Five
Kingdoms?

E.
Kaiser Writes was born into a family of readers, and got started on
storytelling around the age of four when her older siblings prompted
her into recounting an absolutely ridiculous account of a parallel
childhood. It was good for the family’s general entertainment, and
she discovered the thrill of making people laugh.

 

At
the age of seven her mother read the Hobbit aloud, and a fascination
with beautiful fantasy was born. At nine she came to the decision
that she wanted to be a writer, and set to reading rabidly to learn
the art. At thirteen she attempted her first novel, and it was eaten
in a computer’s demise.

 

Afterward,
during her teenage years she tried very hard at various times to stop
writing all together.

 

 

Not
succeeding, she at last gave in to her addiction, and wrote “for
fun”.

 

 

Her
first novel, Jeweler’s Apprentice, is a light-fantasy adventure for
teens. The shy, bookish heroine is thrust out on the first step
toward the adventure that awaits, and growing up. More books in this
series are expected.

The
Singular Adventures of Jefferson Ball
by
David Perlmutter
Genre:
YA SciFi Fantasy
 
There
never was a heroine like Jefferson Ball. And, thankfully, there may
never be.

 

She
is, simply, the most powerful humanized female dog in a universe full
of them. Faster, stronger, more attractive to boys. Unbeatable as a
lover. Unfortunately, her brains are not up to this quality, but
don’t tell her that.

 

About
the only one who can is Major Hamilton Pomeranian, the diminutive
ex-soldier who is Jeff’s best friend and conscience. When she gets
too big for her limited clothing, Hamilton tells her what for. And
it’s usually only after that point that they are able to escape
from whatever convoluted situation they find themselves in.

 

This
potential collection will have readers both laughing and awestruck at
the events that happen. And, hopefully, you will be one of them.
