Excerpt

Oh No! I’m back. I am surrounded by inky black nothingness. The air is musty…damp, my nostrils fill with the smell of dank basement. Like in a haunted house, filled with saws and chains and bloody hooks, this is the perfect place for any psycho to hide his tools of the crazy trade. I’m trembling, from the all-encompassing fear, eating at every cell in my body. Where am I? My fingers search out for clues. Beneath me is a thin mattress on a hard surface. My head rests on a concrete-like pillow. My breathing escalates as the panic rises in my chest. I open my mouth to scream, but only a muted croak escapes. Over the thunder of my pounding heart, I hear a booming crack, a gunshot. I recognize the sound from a trip to the range with Jake years earlier.

I swing my legs over the side of my perch, thinking in my blind panic to run even though I cannot see. I can’t ignore this intense urge to flee. But my impulse is thwarted by an unknown restraint trapping my left arm, a rope? Panic has me in its grip. I gasp for air to fill my lungs but produce only whimpers and muted pleas.

A loud screech reverberates through the darkness. Rats? Oh, please, no rats! Could this get any worse? Hysterical, I yank relentlessly on the rope tethering me. With each tug, the line cuts deeper into my skin. My arm warms as blood seeps from the gouges, coating my hand and fingers. Behind me, the pounding sound of footsteps startles me. Before I can turn to confront my visitor, I feel the rush of air preceding the impact to the back of my head. A blaze of bright stars then, a different blackness envelopes me.

King Beatrice
By Evangeline
Genre: Mature YA Fiction, Coming-to-age

KING BEATRICE is a coming-to-age novella that’s after your heart!

Alex is a young boy interested in his experiments, his dog, family, and little else. He lives a life of seclusion until the day his dog leads him on a wild goose chase through the forest and he comes across Beatrice, a crazy girl with leaves in her hair and the fierce belief that she is a king.

After many attempts of trying to avoid Beatrice, Alex realizes he’s stuck with her. As the years continue and a true friendship grows, he finds that perhaps she isn’t so bad, even if she constantly bests him in their duels. But life isn’t so simple, as the real world—a world of bullies and death and temptation—invades their make-believe, will it be too much for Beatrice? Will Alex make it to her in time?

Devotion (The Afflicted Saga: Tale of the Fallen Book I)
By Katika Schneider
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Sword & Sorcery

Demons were nothing but legends…

Or so the young General Nessix Teradhel had always believed. Abandoned by her god and caught in a political trap with her late father’s old comrade, Nessix had barely kept herself together even before these startling reports appeared.

But now Mathias Sagewind, the fabled White Paladin, has arrived on her quiet island nation of Elidae with confirmation of such terrors. Wielding the name of the Mother Goddess and divine strength not seen in years, he is Elidae’s best chance at victory. In the wake of a holy war, Nessix must learn to trust Mathias as he attempts to guide her from a troubled past and protect her from a tragic future.

Splinters
The Prospero Chronicles Book 1
by Fiona J.R. Titchenell & Matt Carter
Genre: YA Horror, SciFi
Under normal circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to
speak to each other. He’s an easy-going people person with a
healthy skepticism about the paranormal; she’s a dangerously
obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. But the
small Northern California town of Prospero, with its rich history of
cryptid sightings, miracles, and mysterious disappearances, has no
normal circumstances to offer.
When Ben’s missing childhood friend, Haley Perkins, stumbles out of
Prospero’s surrounding woods and right into her own funeral, Ben
and Mina are forced to work together to uncover what happened to her.
Different as they are, their unlikely friendship may be the only
thing that can save the town, and possibly the world, from its
insidious invaders.
A snapping, crackling, popping homage to classic horror.”
—Kirkus Reviews.
Whip-smart
dialogue… genuinely terrifying Splinters, the descriptions of which
will have fans of monster films utterly enthralled… A promising
series opener, this will satisfy those readers who like their scary
stories to be as clever as they are chilling.” —KQG, the
Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books.
The stakes are high. The action is intense.” —Washington
Independent Review of Books.
**only 99 cents!!**
Shards
The Prospero Chronicles Book 2
When autumn descends on Prospero, California, Ben hopes the normality of
the new school year may offer a reprieve from the town’s paranormal
horrors. Mina knows all too well that there are no reprieves and no
normality to be had in Prospero, but even she can’t prepare for
what the coming year holds.
On top of the vivid hallucinations that have plagued Mina since the
attack on the Warehouse, and the brewing Splinter civil war that
threatens all of humanity, inside the walls of Prospero High, Ben,
Mina, and their expanding Network face a vicious campaign to destroy
their friendship, and a mysterious assassin picking off human rebels
– an assassin with powers like no Splinter they’ve fought before.
Ben and Mina’s one hope rests with a mysterious old man hiding in the
woods outside of town; a living legend who may be able to teach them
how to fight this dangerous new breed of Splinter. That is, assuming
he doesn’t kill the pair of them himself.
Titchenell and Carter hold nothing back in this solid sequel that thrills and
expands on its predecessor. Aided by swift writing, relatable
characters and unexpected scares, Shards is a chill-inducing
delight.” —David Powers King, co-author of Woven.
Maintaining the same level of popcorn-munching fun, Titchenell and Carter are
taking The Prospero Chronicles in a promising direction.” —Joe
Dell’Erb, Washington Independent Review of Books.
Slivers
The Prospero Chronicles Book 3
Ben
Growing up is hard, and growing up in Prospero is even harder, but I think we
manage. I mean, yeah, my friends and I spend more of our time
fighting a race of shapeshifting aliens than we do hanging out, but
we have our fun. We go to parties, help each other with our classes,
maybe even fall in love…
I’ve no illusions that we live ordinary lives, but they’re our lives,
and I’m going to make sure we make the most of them whether the
Splinters want us to or not.
Mina
The truce is temporary. We will not humor the Splinters forever. It’s
only until the Slivers can be stopped, until the army of Shards being
planted among our classmates can be disassembled, until we get our
hands on the thing I’d almost given up believing in.
The humanity test.
For the chance to know, once and for all, who can be trusted, some
dealings with monsters must be excusable. Inevitable. Just like this
feeling between Ben and me.
And that has to be temporary too.
Stitches
The Prospero Chronicles Book 4
by Fiona J.R. Titchenell
This is Prospero’s darkest hour. The few remaining humans trapped within
the quarantine zone are all but defenseless against the multiplying
forces of the Sliver Queen, Locusta. With Ben missing, Aldo among the
enemy ranks, and more steel plates than bones left in her body,
Mina’s passing the hours drowning in morphine and throwing heavy
objects at her guards.
Stripped of her weapons, her gadgets, and the Network itself, she has just one
card left, hidden somewhere under her oft-sutured skin. It might be
powerful enough to complete her life’s work once and for all… or
to reach the one person who could make her life into more than a
means to an end. But playing it will cost everything she has, or
everything she believes in.
The final chronicle of Prospero waits in these pages.
F.J.R. TITCHENELL is an author of young adult, sci-fi, and horror fiction, including
Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know of). She
graduated from Cal State University Los Angeles with a B. A. in
English in 2009 at the age of twenty. She currently lives in San
Gabriel, California, with her husband, coauthor, and amazing partner
in all things, Matt Carter, and their pet king snake, Mica.

A Mind Reader’s Christmas
Eric Beckman Mysteries Book 4
by Al Macy
Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery
Eric Beckman, a mind-reading private investigator, is spending Christmas
in snowy Vermont with his wife and daughter. He needs a break from
solving cases, but the townspeople convince him to look into the
village mystery: Every holiday season, someone switches the baby
Jesus with one of the other figures in the town’s nativity scene.
With the help of his ten-year-old daughter, also a mind reader, he soon
learns that some of the residents of the small town are not who—or
even what—they seem to be. There’s something supernatural going
on in Newburn, Vermont.
His investigation causes an escalation of strange happenings, and soon,
swapped manger figures are the least of the town’s worries. If
Beckman can’t adjust his view of the world—force himself to
believe in things he never thought possible—the Christmas vacation
could turn out to be his family’s last.
A Mind Reader’s Christmas may be read as a
standalone book or as Book Four in the Eric Beckman series.
Democracy’s Thief
Eric Beckman Mysteries Book 3
Private Investigator Eric Beckman hates politics. He doesn’t even watch the
news—it’s just sensationalized stories crafted to sell
commercials. Why should he care?
But that changes when a friend is shot in the head during a politically
motivated break-in. Eric starts digging, and using his paranormal
mind-reading skills, he soon discovers that Wilson Kingman, the
presidential candidate behind the burglary, has some supernatural
skills of his own. With one sweep of his mesmerizing gaze, he’s able
to secure the fanatical devotion of the thousands who attend his
rallies–including the very people investigating him.
Worse, Kingman’s true motivations have nothing to do with leading the free
world. With the clock ticking down toward election day, Beckman must
overcome his aversion to politics and stop the wrong man from being
elected. If he fails, millions will die.
Democracy’s Thief is a standalone book which may be enjoyed without
reading any of the other books in the series.
Sanity’s Thief
Eric Beckman Mysteries Book 2
Private detective Eric Beckman can read minds. He’s used to weird cases, but
this one may be his most difficult yet. A beloved relative has
disappeared into a suspicious psychiatric hospital and Eric has no
choice but to go in after her.
Getting in is easy—he knows how to fake insanity.
Getting out … not so much.
The asylum’s director has some personality issues of his own and is doing
more than just treating patients. Now that Eric is one of them, his
mind may be headed for a fate worse than death.
His only hope for escape is to work together with the other inmates. But
collaborating with schizophrenics has its own challenges, even when
he knows what they’re thinking. Unless he can get word to the
outside, the case could cost him his sanity.
Sanity’s Thief is a standalone book and may be understood and enjoyed without
reading any of the other books in the series.
Yesterday’s Thief
Eric Beckman Mysteries Book 1
Private detective Eric Beckman can read minds.
Although he reads only the conscious thoughts of the people he interviews, it
usually gives him enough of an edge to overcome his inexperience as a
PI. But mind reading is hell on relationships. Trusting comes hard
when you know what people are really thinking.
The case of his life lands in his lap when a
beautiful woman materializes during a televised baseball game.
She
floats in midair, then drops to the ground, comatose.
Beckman is at her bedside when she wakes up. From the moment she opens her
eyes, she has him under her spell. He vows to figure out where—or
when—she came from, even if it kills him.
The stakes increase when she disappears without a trace. Worse, she holds
the key to a worldwide energy catastrophe. If Beckman can’t find
her and unlock her secrets, economies will collapse, and the world
will spiral down into chaos.
**FREE!!**
Al Macy writes because he has stories to tell. In school he was the
class clown and always the first volunteer for show and tell. His
teachers would say “Al has a lot of imagination.” Then they’d
roll their eyes.
But he put his storytelling on the back burner until he retired and wrote
a blog about his efforts to improve his piano sight-reading. That’s
when his love of storytelling burbled up to the surface, along with
quirky words like “burble.”
He had even more fun writing his second book, Drive,
Ride, Repeat,
but was bummed by non-fiction’s need
to stick to “the truth” (yucko). From then on it was fiction all
the way, with a good dose of his science background burbling to the
surface.
Macy’s top priority is compelling storylines with satisfying plot twists,
but he never neglects character development. No, wait … his top
priority is quirkiness, then compelling storylines, then character
development. No, wait …
