for a young witch. As a student of the Holstrom Sanctum, she’s

attempting to foil the plot of a cultist opening a portal to another
world. This magical beast comes to her with a calling, a duty to
defend our world against denizens of a dangerous realm called the
Umbra Oculus. Charlotte finds herself inextricably bound to her new
friend, a partner in his crusade.As they begin to investigate, they
find themselves dangerously outmatched. Their opponents are fully
trained, adult wizards with serious zeal for their work. Even after
enlisting the aid of two additional students, they discover they may
not be cut out for the task. But with no one else working on the
problem, these children and their cat must save the world, even as
they risk their very lives in the effort.

“FIVE
STARS!” by Ellie and AJSW

 

 

“LOVED
THE JOURNAL FORMAT! RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!” by DJS

 

 

The
first short story in the Occuli series is here!

 

 

A
Golden-Eyed, or “Aureus”, has one sole purpose in life: to
protect. Raised from children to be bodyguards, these Occuli are both
the fastest and strongest and are commonly used as fierce
weapons.

 

 

Frequently
they are not what they seem however, as they can be tempted by too
much power and control over those they protect. This can lead them
down a dark and dangerous path.

 

 

This
supplement to Book One of the Occuli series, gives the reader a more
intimate look at the character of Zias. In this story the reader is
taken through Zias’ personal journal, giving his perspective on the
journey so far with Remy and the other Occuli. He tells the story
through his eyes about his struggle to remember his past and break
from traditions and curses, while putting it all on the line for the
love of his life, Remy Verbetta.

within, or will she succumb to the darkness that is her nature?

Writing
and reading are my passions! My dream to be a writer began, when as a
five year old child I would ask my mother to write down the stories I
would make up about talking dogs. 

 

 

Since
growing up and becoming further educated with a Bachelor’s Degree in
English (I have an affinity for classic literature), a Master’s
Degree in Leadership, and a degree in Ultrasound, I have begun to
pursue that dream in hopes of one day making it my career. I have
many interests and ideas so my ultimate goal is to release works of
fiction in multiple genres. Fantasy will always be my first love
however, as I have always had an intense imagination that threatens
to inundate me if not expelled onto paper.

 

 

I
currently have six published books: an ongoing fantasy series with
four installments so far (and a fifth one coming soon!), a fantasy
short story, and a suspense/thriller short story. Several of my books
have won awards, but the first book in my fantasy series, The Grey
Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One, has now won 7 wonderful awards
which is very exciting!

 

 

Aside
from writing, I enjoy physical activities like running and yoga. I am
blessed to have an amazing family, close friends and two beloved
canine companions.

Pink
Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats
by
Carla Rehse
Genre:
YA Urban Fantasy
 
Witches
must bond with humans in order to produce children—and once the
bond is made, it cannot easily be broken.

 

 


Imagine
seventeen-year-old Gracie Mason’s surprise when she accidentally
bonds with a witch named Asher. Sure, he’s cute, but that’s
beside the point. She’s not gonna settle for a guy just because
she’s magically bound to him.

 

 

To
dissolve the bond, Gracie must seek out another witch to perform a
magical rite. However, matters become considerably more complicated
when witches begin turning up dead. Wanting nothing more than to get
on with her life, Gracie must now team up with her new witchy friend
and wade deeper into a complex world of enchantment and
intrigue.

 

 

Pink
Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats is an enthralling story of magic,
mystery, and murder—and each new twist will draw you further under
its spell.
