Psst! Does anyone know what the hell they are supposed to be doing with their life? Are you letting other people’s opinions determine your trajectory while you figure it out? As Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that working for ya?”

Her stories and introspections cut straight through the platitudes and redefine success with unapologetic authenticity.

A Tale of Two Bitzers by Amanda N. Newman Genre: Dystopian Fantasy

A Tale of Two Bitzers

Tales From the Outback Book 1

by Amanda N. Newman

Genre: Dystopian Fantasy

Sometimes friends can be found in the most unlikely places.

After spending the last two years confined to the Republic’s prison, Trapper Cayuse wants nothing more than to walk free again. The conditions for his supposed freedom: simple, tell the Republic’s Army where the rest of his Bitzer gang is. However, when the opportunity to escape presents itself, Trapper takes the chance and pays a heavy price. Injured and shackled with a device that makes him unable to use magic, Trapper now faces a long road out of enemy territory, a road that just happens to lead him to an unlikely ally, a Republic teenager named Ara.

Bitzers aren’t supposed to get involved in conflicts between slaves and their masters, let alone get involved in ways that end in blood. Nickel Cly has known that ever since he joined the Bitzer life, and never questioned it, until a chance encounter preys on his sense of honor. With a single arrow, he saves Alura, a non-magic wielder, from the master that almost killed her. But Bitzers don’t normally keep slaves for themselves, and acts of mercy aren’t always simple, especially when they make him question himself and the life he’s lived for the past decade. Now, he has a choice to make: send Alura back to the Republic, send her back to the slave trade, or protect her from those who wish to harm her, all while threats from her past close in.

My Fatal Futility by N J M Hemfrey Genre: Cyberpunk, Time Travel

Shellshock

My Fatal Futility Book 1

by N J M Hemfrey

Genre: Cyberpunk, Time Travel

In a neo-Japanese inspired future, comes a cyberpunk epic with a razor-sharp time travel edge.

Kage Carnifex never bleeds easily. He’s stronger than the slickest cybernetics. And the chip in his brain whispers the value of violence.

Kage is the last product of a dead corporation. When he is scraped off the streets by another megacorp, Kage plunges headlong into an unforgiving world of unbreakable contracts, absolute loyalty, and soulful devotion beyond what he thought possible.

Yet, the psychotic butchers from his shrouded past cannot be escaped forever, nor their malicious masters denied Kage’s life. Blood is owed and carnage is coming to carve everything Kage loves apart.

And the secret to surviving may lie within a device Kage can’t control; the chrono-disruptor — a time machine — but time is a fatal thing…

Amazon * Goodreads

Convulsions

My Fatal Futility Book 2

Return to the high-octane, ultra-violent world of the 25th century: where cybernetics, bionetics, and bionics blur the lines between people, robots, and beasts; where a secret sinister syndicate play the strings of apocalypse; and where the river of time runs with a fatalistic flow.

Honour-bound, tough as titanium, Kage Carnifex follows two paths that twist his head and heart. One turns him towards the past for love and strife in the climate-ravaged steppe of Norvono. The other fires him into the future under a new captain and a new strategy to devastate Psychosisium.

But seeing the truth of his destiny and origin is barbed with manipulation and betrayal. The hologram ghost of an archenemy promises answers to avoid armageddon. While the malfunctioning chip inside Kage’s head seeks greater control of his body.

Facing off against temporal assassins, teleporters, and butcher-bots has never been deadlier. Fortified by samurai-instincts and bulletproof flesh, Kage plunges into the depths of this neon nightmare — where good deeds make devils and the worst make gods.

Passport to Terror

The Passport Time Travel Series Book 1

by Christy Cooper-Burnett

Genre: SciFi Time Travel Adventure

What really happened to Jack the Ripper?

They always say, “Be careful what you wish for.”

I wish I had been careful.

I could’ve easily sold my time travel machine for billions and walked away. Instead, I opened The Taylor Travel Group where I take the elite on vacations into history, to a time and place of their choice.

But when a big-time movie studio hired my company, I sold my soul.

What was supposed to be a few days of method-actor immersion in nineteenth-century London went horribly awry. Now America’s hottest starlet is dead, and Jack the Ripper is on the loose in modern-day Los Angeles. And it’s all my fault.

I was careless enough to let history’s most ruthless serial killer slip out of the past. Am I smart enough to match wits with him and send him packing before he vanishes forever?

The Devil’s Daughter

by C.A. King

Ghost Hunters had it wrong.

The Johnson brothers were living in the limelight, seeking out proof of the paranormal in front of the public eye. Fame, fortune, and success came hand-in-hand with evidence. Answers were worth their weight in gold. The trio had no idea they were asking all the wrong questions… until she appeared.

Pretty dresses and jewels meant nothing when all she wanted was respect. The moment Vallenna spiralled down a black hole, life turned upside down. It was the chance she’d been waiting her whole life for.

Born to rule two realms, but accepted by neither, the devil’s daughter is determined to leave her mark on both. Can the brothers stop her diabolical plans with only charisma and raw animal magnetism at their disposal?

#TheDevilsDaughter #ghosthunters #multiplerealms #paranormalinvestigations #MoonRituals #Magic #Devil #Netherworld #BeastMaster #ForbiddenLove #Demonic #Summoning

I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger.

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years.

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes—I want them to know they are making a difference.

Fast forward to today…

Sebastian Garcia, Juliet Okofor, and twins Angus and Celia McNeil could not be more different from one another. But when they accidently discover an enchanted house that once belonged to the great magician, Moriarty Mortimer, everything changes. 

Legend has it that somewhere inside the mysterious mansion is the most powerful book of magic ever known, and the kids aren’t the only ones hoping to find it. Someone unexpected wants to use it for their evil plan.

Now, they must find the book and use a spell to travel back in time to convince Moriarty Mortimer to teach them magic well enough to defeat a maniacal mad man.

But magic is tricky, so they must work as a team. If they fail, unimaginable power will fall into exactly the wrong hands. If they succeed, they’ll go from magicless misfits to guardians of The Book of the Seven Spells

PRAISE for THE BOOK OF THE SEVEN SPELLS

“With mystery, adventure, magic, puzzles, and four diverse protagonist, bestselling adult author Charlie Lovett jumps into the world of young readers and embarks on a new middle grade series with his patented skill, perspective, and historical knowledge. Using the protagonists’ self-doubts and strengths, Lovett deftly crafts a magical message of empathy. His world-building is cinematic, and his writing is smart, clever and fun. THE BOOK OF THE SEVEN SPELLS will find a wide range of readers.”

Kristen Gilligan | Owner, Tattered Cover Bookstores, Denver, CO

 

“THE BOOK OF THE SEVEN SPELLS is an action-packed story about powerful magical books and fabled histories, heartfelt friendships and the journey of a team of children to discover their truth and find themselves. THE BOOK OF THE SEVEN SPELLS is a treasury of moving character development, quirky dialogue and exciting plot twists that is sure to have all readers wishing for more. I really like the recipe of this book from start to finish!”

Drew Durham | Children’s Specialist, Books, Inc., Burlingame, CA 

 

“Full of adventure, this book captivated me from page one. I love the characters and rich storytelling that always makes Lovett’s books exciting and engaging. In my experience as a bookseller and community organizer, I come into contact with many parents and teachers who are looking simply for “good stories” for their kids. This is the book I want to give them.”

Jamie Rogers Southern | Operations Manager, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC & SIBA Board Member

 

“Kids will root for its heroes and heroines—plucky, flawed, skillful, and brave—and will devour the way book knowledge and child-driven research makes plausible the unfolding of the mystery of Hedley Helm and Mortimer Mansion. Likewise, librarians will appreciate the clear writing, suspenseful plot, and the thoughtful portrayal of each character’s insecurities, fears, and talents. It is excellent to see a middle grade fantasy novel feature such a diverse cast of characters! I liked that the characters confronted issues of race, gender, class, and more throughout the novel, showing how assumptions based on the way kids look or act can do harm to them (or become internalized over time). I loved how Charlie developed empathy in each protagonist; by the end of the novel, you didn’t just see them come together as a regular school-crew: it made perfect, believable sense. In short, I really did love it!”

Aubrey Restifo | Middle Grade & YA Specialist, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester, NH

 

Charlie Lovett lives in a house full of old books and can often be found reading on his back porch with his dog Rosie curled up next to him. He loves to run, watch movies, and travel, but most of all he loves to tell stories. He wrote The Book of the Seven Spells for a group of young friends and he hopes you like it as much as they do.
