The
Half That You See

 

Genre:
Horror Anthology

 

Edited
by Rebecca Rowland

 

 

Believe
nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.”

-The
System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether by Edgar Allan Poe (1845)

Poe’s
classic tale told of a state of the art hospital boasting a curiously
experimental treatment, but things were not as they seemed. In The
Half That You See, twenty-six writers from around the globe share
their literary optical illusions in never before seen stories of
portentous visions and haunting memories, altered consciousness and
virulent nightmares, disordered thinking and descents into madness.
Take a walk down the paths of perception that these dark fiction
raconteurs have tunneled for you, but keep a tight grip on your
flashlight: the course twists and turns, and once you’re on route
to your destination, there is no turning back. That which creeps
about in the poorly lit corners of the human mind has teeth, and it’s
waiting for you.

Nothing
is quite as it seems in this thrilling YA fantasy adventure by
Jillian Boehme,

For
a hundred years, the once-prosperous kingdom of Perin Faye has
suffered under the rule of the greedy and power-hungry Thungrave
kings. Maralyth Graylaern, a vintner’s daughter, has no idea her
hidden magical power is proof of a secret bloodline and claim to the
throne. Alac Thungrave, the king’s second son, has always been
uncomfortable with his position as the spare heir—and the dark,
stolen magic that comes with ruling.

 

When
Maralyth becomes embroiled in a plot to murder the royal family and
seize the throne, a cat-and-mouse chase ensues in an adventure of
dark magic, court intrigue, and forbidden love.

He’s just been made captain of a ship, and he’s about to marry his

J TREVOR ROBINSON was young, he received a well-worn stack of mystery
and horror novels from his older brother, and it instilled in him a
lifelong desire to be an author. Heavily influenced by Stephen King’s

characters in Ayn Rand’s books, he blended those influences with
classic literature and pulp horror to write his Immortal Works debut
The Mummy of Monte Cristo.

 

He
has also self-published a young-adult horror novel The Good Fight,
and was published in the Amazon #1 bestselling horror anthology
Secret Stairs as the sole romance story in the collection.

lives in Toronto keeping the redhead gene alive with his wife and
newborn daughter, born Friday the 13th.

A
Study in Shifters

 

The
Adventures of Marisol Holmes Book 1

 

by
Majanka Verstraete

 

Genre:
YA Paranormal

 

 

The
game is afoot.”

 

 

Seventeen-year-old
Marisol Holmes wants to live up to the family legacy; after all, she
is the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes. What’s
more Holmesian than a grisly murder? The Conclave, an underground
organization of detectives solving supernatural cases, is giving her
just one chance to catch a killer and join them. After all, as a
half-blood jaguar shifter, Marisol is uniquely qualified to solve
this murder—since every scrap of evidence points toward the culprit
being a fellow jaguar shifter.

 

 

There
is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.”

 

 

There’s
more to this than just evidence. Is one of her own people really
involved, or is this all a ploy to kick Marisol’s mother off the
shifter throne?

 

 

When
Marisol discovers her handsome best friend, Roan, is missing, she
realizes Roan may be the killer’s next target. The stakes just got
higher than political intrigue.

 

 

“When
you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however
improbable, must be the truth.”

 

 

Just
when things couldn’t get worse, Marisol’s
ex-boyfriend-turned-nemesis, Mannix, starts leaving sinister clues
for her. In her last case, Mannix broke her heart and ruined her
case, and Marisol isn’t sure which is worse. Marisol fears this case
too might be far more personal than she could’ve
imagined.

 

 

“Elementary.”

 

 

It’s
time for Marisol to prove her worth, or her people could fall into
chaos while her best friend loses his life.

 

 

This
book is perfect for fans of: shapeshifters, steampunk, paranormal,
high school drama, teen romance, Sherlock Holmes and deadly intrigue.

Two
days ago, terrible events shattered the very foundation of the
Conclave. Now, Marisol Holmes swears she’ll stop at nothing to
destroy the man she once loved: her arch nemesis, Mannix.

 

 

But
when a cryptic clue left by Mannix leads Marisol to a secret room
that once belonged to her father, she realizes that hunting down
Mannix won’t be that easy. If she wants to catch him, she’ll have
to retrace the steps of her own past and discovers secrets that might
have been best left buried.

 

 

When
the hunt for Mannix brings Marisol to London, she teams up again with
Roan and Wyatt on a quest for the truth that leads her through the
dark alleys of London, to shady shifter pubs, to libraries cloaked in
magic, and eventually to an abandoned castle in Scotland that once
belonged to her family.

 

 

But
Mannix is as sadistic as he’s smart. At every turn, Marisol and her
friends face harsh truths and deadly puzzles and risk their lives to
uncover a past that should stay buried. With the stakes getting
higher and Marisol’s attraction to Roan growing, can Marisol deny
what she truly wants, even if it puts her new love on a collision
course with her villainous ex?

playing football and basketball, and still play basketball whenever I
can. I love everything outdoors whether it is hiking, camping,
golfing, or fishing. Being able to get out into the wildlife and
smell the fresh air is something my wife Sarah and I love to share
together. We both love dogs and love our dog Kumba.

Nina has always been
creative, be it art, theatre, film – anything but singing – you
don’t want to hear that! She earned her bachelor’s degree in
Theatre and Military Science from Eastern Michigan University where
she spent most of her time either on stage, rappelling down
buildings, or working one of three jobs. After college she moved to
Los Angeles, like so many other actors, in pursuit of her dreams.
Nina started writing short stories in 2008. Since then, her dreams
have gotten bigger and she likes to think her storytelling ability
has gotten better. She has done everything from secretarial work to
business development to being the Director of a private preschool.
She has fired a M16 machine gun, jumped out of a C130 aircraft, and
given birth – TWICE – but she always returns to her art.

 

She has two completed
series available; The Blood Angel Series (Awaken, Beginnings,
Revenge, and Pursuit) and the SECTOR C Series (The Chosen, The
Hunted, and The Bridge). Her latest novel, an interactive urban
fantasy novel, The Beast Within, is a standalone story with eleven
(11) possible endings and twenty-six (26) opportunities for the
reader to try and change the story. The Beast Within is currently
available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available for purchase
on March 1, 2021.

 

Though she’ll forever
be a Michigan girl at heart, she now lives in the south with her
husband and two beautiful children. If she’s not working on her
latest story, you can find her lounging with a good book, playing
with her kids, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to Starbucks
coffee.

Amanda
Cherry is a native of Pensacola, FL and an alumnus of UNLV who hasn’t
been thoroughly warm since moving to the Seattle area in 2003.
Amanda’s first love was performing, and she has had a successful
career as a theatre, television, and film actress.
 

 

Amanda’s
first book was penned in her family’s den and published by her father
in time for Christmas in 1985, she was six years old. After the
limited success of that first outing, Amanda turned to writing
stories for fun. She spent the next twenty-odd years doing just
that.
 

 

A
lifelong nerd, Amanda joined the staff at her favorite Star Wars
site, Tosche Station, as a contributing writer in 2016 and discovered
that letting other people read what she’d written was actually pretty
fun. Thanks to the encouragement of a friend, she was invited to
submit to Cobalt City Christmas: Christmas Harder in 2016 while
living overseas in Berlin, Germany. When she learned that her story
was bought, she cried.
 

 

Capitalizing
on the success of that publication, Amanda’s pitch for a follow-up
novel was accepted. The rest is, as they say, history.
 

 

Amanda
once again lives in the Seattle area with her husband of ten years
and four year-old son. In her free time, she enjoys driving her
little blue convertible and officiating flat track roller derby.
