Shadow Stalker: Revolution Part 1 (Episode 23): A Dark #Fantasy Serial by Renee Scattergood is Free on #Amazon for a Limited Time!

It’s the calm before the storm, and the storm is closer than Auren thinks.

Auren is successfully using her ability to control people’s minds and actions to take over Nadiria and finally bring an end to the Galvadi Empire, but there is a catch. The more she uses that power, the more she loses herself to it.

If she can accomplish her mission quickly, it will reduce the chance of that happening. The allies she has found are helping her move things along, but there’s a lot of work to do and horrors that Auren has not yet discovered that will make controlling herself nearly impossible.

Her friends and allies are growing concerned over her unpredictable violent actions, and Auren knows her time is running out.

About the Author

As a child, I could always be found in an old oak tree reading a favorite novel or on the back of my horse riding off to a new adventure in Pinellas County, Florida.  I still have a wild imagination, still love old oak trees and own three beautiful horses that I teach people how to ride on.  I am still in Pinellas because I love Florida.  I still ride in the state parks.  I still tell wonderful and imaginative stories as well.

Wishes, She Roars (A Dark and Twisted Aladdin Retelling): A #YA #Fantasy by Angela Kulig and Angela Sanders

Wishes, She Roars
A Dark and Twisted Aladdin Retelling

by Angela Kulig and Angela Sanders

Genre: YA Fantasy 

Publisher: Green Envy Press
Publication Date: November 1, 2019

Princess Cyra isn't cursed, and she doesn't need Aladdin's wishes to save her kingdom.

People are starving in Henjanan but in the palace on the mountain, otherworldly parties continue almost every night. In the middle of the crowd, where colorful veiled ladies dance with young lords and whisper lies and secrets, sits a sultan with a devil on his shoulder—The Grand Vizier—who does far worse than lie, cheat, and kill.

Absent from most of these parties is Princess Cyra al-Budur, who seeks to root out the evil inside her
country by whatever means necessary—even if it means never marrying or finding love, even if it means donning claws and fur, even if it means giving up everything she has. She doesn't dare fail.

In the middle of a monsoon, with the world raging around her, a chance meeting with the handsome son of wealthy merchants leaves Cyra attempting to outwit a kind soul.

Aladdin refuses to believe she doesn't need to be saved and tries to prevent the inevitable fallout of
wishes three.

Never After Tales is a series of standalone novels, that can be enjoyed in any order!

Where Ideas Come From

Walt Whitman wrote a poem called Oh Me! Oh Life!; that has stuck with me since high school. It’s about the recurring questions we have in life. He simplifies the question with a single answer.

“That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

Ideas come from living life…not simply existing in life. We are born, we live, we die. It’s up to us how we choose to live it. If we constantly keep our heads down in our phones, or forget to stop and smell the roses, then we are simply existing and not contributing.

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

Ideas come from exiting in every moment of life. They come from being present in the present—a laugh with friends, listening to someone talk about their lives; the way the sun hits the trees on the distant horizon. This is where ideas come from. If we close ourselves off from the rest of the world, then we are forgetting what life is truly about.

The idea for Shine book one of the H. A. L. O. saga came from seeing a ray of light cut through thick dark clouds. I thought what if that was how angels traveled. That was it. If I would have been sitting at home watching the tv then that moment wouldn’t have happened.

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

If you want to be a good writer, then you have to learn to observe. There are stories all around us. In my neighborhood we have a woman who walks her dog everyday at the same time no matter what the
weather is like. On rainy days she carries an umbrella and on days filled with brisk winds, she wears a coat. I’m absolutely fascinated by her determination at taking the walk daily at the same time. What’s more, I’m curious as to what the dog thinks when they are walking in the rain. It brings a smile to my face daily. If I didn’t pay attention to my neighborhood, I would never have noticed the woman walking her dog at the same time everyday rain or shine. These are the little things that make a story come to life. Is the woman going to be a character in a story or maybe just her action of walking the dog at the same time daily. The point is that observation is one of the most important tools we have. Our observations also help us come up with ideas.

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

Ideas come from contributing the verse that becomes the stories of our lives. My advice is live in the
moment, hope for the future and learn from the past. This is your moment…take it…enjoy it…remember it…then go write it down somewhere. This is where I think ideas come from.

Thank you,
Joann H. Buchanan

Never Ceese was also Book Club Choice of the month at the American Christian Fiction Writers Association in May of 2007 when Sue was a member.

Dent’s stories continue to appeal to general market readers with surprise appeal to the denominationally discriminative (niche market CBA member publisher's serve. Ms. Dent likes to point out that though her work appeals to readers of this niche market, she does not write specifically for that market which is why you won't find her work in CBA member bookstores or rather on any shelf at any Christian Retailer or even listed on-line at member on-line bookstores such as

Caster Prophecy: An Urban #Fantasy Series by LaVerne Lewis

Caster Prophecy Book 1 

by LaVerne Lewis 

Genre: Urban Fantasy

She's a human with a busted ticker. He's an ancient warlock. The only thing they have in common are birthmarks that flare to the point of pain when they're together. But fate has other ideas... 

Studying abroad despite her advancing heart disease, Leilani Gibson squeezes all the joy she can out of life. Literally bumping into the most handsome guy she's ever seen while Christmas shopping should be the best thing that's happened to her in quite some time, but she knows he'll disappear when he discovers her secret. 

Born into a family of Casters, Stellan Kierkegaard lives his life away from the reminder that he alone is the only one un-mated in his coven. When he collides with Leilani at a Montreal mall, his gallant attempt to get her to the hospital when she succumbs to congestive heart failure takes an unexpected turn. Now he’s forced to withhold some secrets of his own. 

Stellan poses as Leilani's fiancĂ© until she gets the medical care she needs, but the more time they spend together, the more intense their feelings become as their birthmarks flare. If Caster prophecy is to be believed, and this reaction is only triggered in true soul mates, they must hide this fact from a trio of zealous Caster royals who have been tricked once. 

The Caster couple who bears the foretold birthmark is prophesied to knit dark and light covens to lead the Caster World. Yet how can this be when Leilani is by every indication, mortal? 

Goodreads * Amazon

Caster Prophecy Book 2

When the most precious Caster artifact goes missing, its retrieval becomes the difference between peace and civil war. 

Powerful warlock, Stellan Kierkegaard was united with his Caster’s Canticle in Leilani Gibson, whom he believed to be human, but is actually an equally powerful Caster who’s been raised by human parents. During surgery to repair Leilani’s severely damaged heart, the power which someone had been siphoning from her since childhood was returned, revealing her true nature. 

Now, the Kierkegaard coven is on the run from their governing body, The Hemlock Society, and the
unknown person or persons who plotted to relieve Leilani of her power. Shortly after learning that the
second half of the Caster Prophecy, the Caster’s Opus, has been stolen from the Hemlock Society in
Stockholm, Leilani is kidnapped, sending Stellan into a Caster rage. 

Will Stellan and Leilani retrieve the Caster’s Opus in time to join the Dark and Light covens together as prophesied, or will the Caster World descend into chaos? 

Goodreads * Amazon

Caster Prophecy Book 3

Ruling the Caster World proves dangerous, but is it as dangerous as a little-known prophecy which could be the final triumph? 

Stellan and Leilani Kierkegaard balance marriage, governing an underground race of magical beings, an investigation to discover who her biological parents are, all while completing their matriculation at an Ivy League school. It seems all too easy until their lead Caster investigator turns up dead, and every conceivable clue leads back to someone trying to keep her parents’ identity a secret. 

When Leilani’s grad school bestie learns the secret they’re sworn to keep at all costs, things get even
more interesting in their world, particularly, the fact that her in-laws may not share her views, or fondness for humans, when it comes to the existence of Casters in a world dominated by them. Combine all this with the discovery that there’s yet another prophecy which must be fulfilled in order for them to reign over the Caster World in relative peace and prosperity. 

Will Stellan and Leilani have to make the same choice her Caster parents had to make to safeguard their legacy, or will prophecy protect their Masterpiece? 

Goodreads * Amazon

LaVerne Lewis grew up watching shows like Dark Shadows, Bewitched and later Charmed and Supernatural. Her favorite authors in the genre include Anne Rice, Stephen King, Karen Marie Moning and J.R. Ward which cemented her fondness for Urban Fantasy and the Paranormal. While she works by day in an office writing dry contract language, her love for Urban Fantasy compelled her to pursue writing the types of books she loves. Now she writes her own Paranormal Romance novels in the hope that someday her name will be synonymous with her idols’.
