Guardian’s Legacy; For Charlee, everything she ever thought she knew about herself soon crumbles as she starts down a path to discover her true self

Saturday, December 24th, 2022

 

Guardian’s
Legacy

The
Last Princess of Latara Book 3

by
Darren Simon

Genre:
YA Epic Fantasy Adventure

Fourteen-year-old
Charlee Smelton is a Guardian, a path forced upon her by fate. She’s
come to accept

this
fact after fighting to save Earth, the world she thought was her
home, and the magical world of

Janasara,
the true home of her bloodline.

But
the fight is not over.

Once
more, Charlee must stand against not only her great aunt, the
sorceress Theodora, but also an

ancient
evil—the Brotherhood—seeking to be reborn and to conquer worlds.
If she is to save the

universe,
she’ll have to put her faith in the last person across the
dimensional divide she would have

turned
to for help—a person who knows the truth about the cursed medallion
that calls to Charlee.

A
war is coming, and her very soul is on the line

Guardian’s
Return

The
Last Princess of Latara Book 2

A
month has passed since fourteen-year-old Charlee Smelton discovered
her magical abilities and faced her great aunt, Theodora, in a life
or death struggle to protect Earth. A month has passed since she
tricked Theodora back across the dimensional gateway that brought
Theodora to Earth. Since then, Charlee—now fully aware that she is
part of a noble bloodline from another world…another dimension…has
grown stronger in her magic, aided by her protector, a shapeshifter
sent to Earth to protect her.

But
the terrible dreams won’t stop.

Theodora
lives, and if Charlee’s dreams of death and fields of spilled blood
are true, her great aunt has avenged herself on that world across the
dimensional divide.

Charlee
knows what she must do. The fight is not over. She must travel across
the gateway to the home of her ancestors and face Theodora one more
time. But doing so may cost Charlee more than her life. The same
medallion her great aunt desires so much—a medallion Charlee
possesses—could make her just as evil as her great aunt.

Can
Charlee stave off the twisted tendrils of the medallion long enough
to defeat Theodora—for good—or will evil consume her? Can she
even survive so far from home? Her only hope may rest in the Lord of
the Dragons, but that beast turned his back on her grandfather long
ago…

Guardian’s
Nightmare

The
Last Princess of Latara Book 1

Charlee
Smelton is an average thirteen-year-old girl struggling to adapt
after her family moves to San Francisco. She thinks her biggest
obstacle is facing the bullies who brand her a nerd and a dweeb.
She’s wrong. Her life is about to change—for the worse.

First,
she receives a gift of the ugliest, most old fashioned bike she has
ever seen. Try as she might to ditch it in the city, she just can’t
seem to escape that very mysterious two-wheeler. Then come the
visions of a world across a dimensional divide, a princess in fear
for her life and a dark knight pursuing her. Are they just dreams or
something more?

For
Charlee, everything she ever thought she knew about herself soon
crumbles as she starts down a path to discover her true self, and she
will need that hunk-of-junk bike more than she could ever imagine.
Without it, she might not be able to find the hero in herself—the
hero she must become to save her friends, family, her city—the
world—from an evil only she can defeat. An evil she allows into
this world.

Like
many writers, my journey to become an author began with a love of
reading, and I have my grandmother to thank for that. When I was
eight or nine, she gave me a paper bag filled with comic books from
the 1960s and ’70s. Comics became a big part of my life. I would save
my weekly allowance to buy the most recent editions of Batman and
Superman. Then, growing up in the ’80s, I began to read Choose Your
Own Adventure books from the world of Dungeons & Dragons. And
that led me to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. But my path to become a
writer was firmly set after I saw the movie Ghostbusters in 1984,
just prior to my freshman year of high school. I was in awe the way
the writers came up with words that made people laugh so hard, and I
knew right then I wanted to write. I immediately went home and wrote
my version of Ghostbusters II. More importantly, I took journalism in
high school, and continued to study journalism in college. After a
wonderful career as a newspaper journalist, and a secondary career as
a college English professor, it was time to rekindle my love for
fiction. I knew I wanted to write fantasy, like Tolkien, and I wanted
to write for middle grade and young adult readers to inspire them the
way I was inspired by the books I read. I hope young readers–and
even older ones–enjoy my work. Thank you for checking out my author
page, and keep reading, no matter what you love to read. To learn

Perception
and Deception: A Spy Series

Full
Cast Audiobook With Music and Sound Effects!

by
Andrea Hintz

Genre:
Romantic Suspense, Small Town Mystery

Based
on the #1 Bestselling spy series! A full cast, cinematic-styled

 Romance,

simple life begins to teeter towards something perilous after a
beautiful, undercover agent moves into town…

This
book is a definite page-turner. It has suspense, romance,
intrigue, action. I was amazed by the research the author has
done in describing how a secret organization with authorization to
protect innocent civilians may possibly exist. I wouldn’t be
surprised if this is a fiction-based-on-fact type of novel.”

for
bringing me an incredible group of readers who have supported this
series from the very beginning!

this girl someday, his pursuit of her proves to be successful…until
she suddenly dumps him and he gets attacked in an alley. His rescuer
is surprisingly Felix herself, revealing that she’s really a
special agent for a top-secret division of the FBI and has blown her
cover. Ashton suddenly finds himself thrown into a mission involving
destructive weapons blueprints that could lead to worldwide
catastrophe, running from the bad guys who are now after Felix and

Emma; No one had wanted Papa to be sad, but why did she have to be their new mother?

Sunday, December 18th, 2022

 

Emma

Heritage
Series Volume 1

by
Susan Diane Black Blackmon

Genre:
Historical Fiction

Emma
lay very still, her eyes tightly closed. Sometimes – if she
concentrated – she could make out her Momma’s face.
She was the
youngest child of eighteen. She had barely been two when her beloved
Momma died. Papa had managed to keep body and soul together for a
little more than a year, not an easy task with four little ones
underfoot. The older children had been a help to him, especially
Betsy and Maggie. The bigger boys had helped with the farm’s
never-ending chores, but it was never enough.
Papa was different.
Losing Momma had hurt him deeply. His gentle eyes were sad. Even when
he had given her horsey rides, his smile had never quite reached his
eyes.
Emma supposed they shouldn’t have been surprised when Papa
had come home one day and brought them a new ‘mother.’ Honestly,
her memories of that day were fuzzy. She knew much of what she
recalled was from what the older children had said in hushed voices
behind ‘Mother’s’ back.
No one had wanted Papa to be sad,
but why did 
she have
to be their new mother?

Based on her maternal
great-grandmother and some of the events in her life, much of the
story is fiction. However, there are threads of reality woven
throughout Emma’s story.
The real-life Emma was, in fact, the
youngest in a family of eighteen children, which included three sets
of twins and a set of quadruplets. Yes, the article in The Austin
Weekly Statesman suggested the fair association should invite the
family to attend as “honored guests” when the quadruplet girls
were born.

As to the rest, it is up to the reader to decide,
fact or fiction.

Daniel
Brown Boultinghouse & Mary Jane Russell
:

A
Collection of Civil War Letters and Family Documents with Genealogical & Historical Commentary

Compiled
by Susan Diane Black Blackmon

Genre:
Historical Non-Fiction

Daniel
Brown “D. B.” Boultinghouse and Mary Jane (Russell), his wife,
migrated from Scott County, Arkansas to Texas sometime between March
1849 and June 1850. We know that in 1850, their neighbors in Lampasas
County, Texas were Mary Jane’s older brother, D. W. Russell and her
father, John.

For
thirteen years, the only remarkable events that were documented in
their lives are the births and deaths of six small children. As if
that were not enough to crush the souls of this young couple, in 1861
their lives were changed forever by the American Civil War.

Hidden
away for 158 years, the letters that chronicled their daily lives
quietly passed from generation to generation, until finally making
their way into the hands of the author. The unrealized dream of D. B.
and Mary Jane’s great-grandson, Joe Lee Mankins, was to share these
family treasures with his family and the world.

Blended
with family documents and stories as well as historical commentary,
the reader will be caught up in the story and transported to a
simpler yet more difficult era. Ninety-one pages of letters, many
with images of the originals, are transcribed for ease of reading.

Who
knew that a Junior High School History assignment would turn into a
passion for genealogy which has become a love of historical fiction
stories?

In
1976, the assignment was to write an autobiography and fill out a
Pedigree Chart – thus began “The Tale of the Beautiful Princess or
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Me, But Were Afraid to
Ask,” and 45-plus years of researching my family.

Countless
hours of my ‘MamMaw’ and Great-aunt Ruth sharing the stories of
my ancestors have resulted in the publication of two sets of
genealogy books on my Boultinghouse and Driver lines. A third set on
the John Gray Parks family is in the works.

In
2022, I was privileged to bring to life the dream of my late cousin,
Joe Lee Mankins. The Daniel Brown Boultinghouse & Mary Jane
Russell Civil War Letters book is a story of love and heartbreak in
the written words of the main characters. The book contains images of
many original letters, some more than 171 years old. Not to worry,
each page has a transcript for easier reading.

After
so many years of research, I have many stories and anecdotes in my
mind. With a ‘nudge’ from my older sister, some of those stories
wandered onto the page and became Emma.

Based
on my maternal great-grandmother and some of the events in her life,
much of the story is fiction. However, there are threads of reality
woven throughout Emma’s story.

The
real-life Emma was, in fact, the youngest in a family of eighteen

Sarah’s
Story

The
Luck of the Irish Gift Book 2

Sarah
had inherited the same “Luck of the Irish” gift as her Uncle
Johnny. Where he had used his gift in his military career and his
security business protecting people, she hide from the world. As a
child, she picked up her Mother’s fear of separation and later felt
her parents terror as their plane crashed in the mountains. From that
moment on, she stayed close to her Uncle, wanting his protection and
rarely venturing outside of her loft. The only time she did go out is
when she would meet clients to design and make the perfect dress for
them, whether it was for parties or their weddings. Using her gift to
know exactly what would fit each personality. Professionally, her
business was thriving, yet personally, she kept herself locked away.

One
day while looking out the window and seeing all the people in the
park enjoying life, she realized how much she was missing out by
staying hidden. Just as she was thinking those thoughts, her best
friend, Jeffrey walks into her loft. He too works for the security
company and knows of a simple job in Miami, Florida she would be
perfect for. His friend, Brandon, owns a design company that was
getting their designs stolen and could not figure out who the mole
was. With her fashion experience and gift, she would be the perfect
person to go undercover and find the thief.

It
should have been an easy job but got complicated very quickly when
Nicco Kombi purchases Brandon’s company. The day she meets him, his
energy is so strong it knocks her into her chair. Never before had
she felt such strong emotions from a man. She knew she should stay
away from him, but the moment he touches her hand, she felt the
electric current her Uncle Johnny and Aunt Marta always talked about.
She always thought it was them making up a story, but now realized it
was real. The only question is, could Nicco possibly be the mole, or
is he the key to unlocking her heart?

Book of Shadow was found, but the quest continues…

Llyris
Fildarae is still reeling with the news of her heritage imparted by
an old man claiming to be the great mage Amnayel Prisma—doubtful,

couldn’t. He cured a boy, yet now demands a stave to aid in healing
a fallen knight.

The quest she and her companions embark on
requires them to travel to the Obsidian Fields, a place no one has
visited since time immemorial. Even Prisma himself—if that is who
he is—cannot tell them what it may look like or what to expect once
there.

What dangers will they face? Magic? Deadly curses? The
undead again?

Saturday, December 10th, 2022

 

Merlin’s
Apprentice: The Mage

by
Susan McCauley

Genre:
Epic Middle Grade Arthurian Fantasy

Twelve-year-old
Pip must embrace his magical powers to rescue his family from
slavery—or help the king save the realm—a decision that will tear
his world apart.

Desperate
to keep his family together, Pip hides his power so he can be sold
with them. But when his father and brother are sold to different
mages and the slavers attempt to separate his mother and sister, Pip
loses control and injures a slaver with magic. The uproar catches the
attention of the southern king’s druid advisor, Merlin, who quickly
offers a place to Pip, his sister, and his mother. On the road to
King Arthur’s court, bandits attack their camp, and his family is
further torn apart. Pip has no choice but to work with Merlin—who
may not be the evil mage Pip assumes him to be—to learn to harness
his powers so he can help King Arthur stop Mordred. Only then might
Pip have a chance to see his family together again.

A Fairy Garden Mystery; There’s a gallery of suspects, from an unstable former flame to an arts and crafts teacher with a sketchy past

Friday, December 9th, 2022

 

A
Sprinkling of Murder

A
Fairy Garden Mystery Book 1

by
Daryl Wood Gerber

Genre:
Paranormal Cozy Mystery

Featured
on Buzzfeed Books!

Fairy garden store owner Courtney Kelly
believes in inviting magic into your life. But when uninvited trouble
enters her shop, she’ll need more than a sprinkling of her
imagination to solve a murder . . .

Since
childhood, Courtney has loved fairies. After her mother died when
Courtney was ten, she lost touch with that feeling of magic. A year
ago, at age twenty-nine, she rediscovered it when she left her
father’s landscaping business to spread her wings and start a fairy
garden business and teashop in beautiful Carmel, California. At Open
Your Imagination, she teaches garden design and sells everything from
fairy figurines to tinkling wind chimes. Now she’s starting a book
club tea.

But the light of the magical world she’s
created inside her shop is darkened one night when she discovers
neighboring dog-grooming business owner Mick Watkins dead beside her
patio fountain. To make matters worse, the police suspect Courtney of
the crime. To clear her name and find the real killer, Courtney will
have to wing it. But she’s about to get a little help from an
unexpected source . . .

A
Glimmer of a Clue

A
Fairy Garden Mystery Book 2

Courtney
Kelly has a shop full of delights, a cat named Pixie, a green
thumb—and a magical touch when it comes to garden design. But in
Carmel-by-the-Sea, things aren’t all sweetness and fairy lights . .
.

 
When
Courtney’s friend Wanda gets into a ponytail-pulling wrestling
match in public with a nasty local art critic, Courtney stops the
fight with the help of a garden hose. But Lana Lamar has a talent for
escalating things and creating tension, which she succeeds in doing
by threatening a lawsuit, getting into yet another scuffle—in the
midst of an elegant fundraiser, no less—and lobbing insults around
like pickleballs.

Next thing Courtney knows, Lana
is on the floor, stabbed with a decorative letter opener from one of
Courtney’s fairy gardens, and Wanda is standing by asking “What
have I done?” But the answer may not be as obvious as it seems,
since Wanda is prone to sleepwalking and appears to be in a daze.
Could she have risen from her nap and committed murder while
unconscious? Or is the guilty party someone else Lana’s ticked off,
like her long-suffering husband? To find out, Courtney will have to
dig up some dirt . . .

A
Hint of Mischief

A
Fairy Garden Mystery Book 3

The
proprietor of a fairy garden and tea shop in Carmel-by-the-Sea,
Courtney Kelly has an occasional side gig as a sleuth—with a
sprinkling of magical assistance. . . .

Courtney
has thrown a few fairy garden parties—for kids. But if a local
socialite is willing to dip into her trust fund for an old sorority
sister’s fortieth birthday bash, Courtney will be there with bells
on. To make the job even more appealing, a famous actress, Farrah
Lawson, is flying in for the occasion, and there’s nothing like a
celebrity cameo to raise a business’s profile.

Now
Courtney has less than two weeks to paint a mural, hang up tinkling
windchimes, plan party games, and conjure up all the details. While
she works her magic, the hostess and her girlfriends head off for an
indulgent spa day—which leads to a fateful facial for Farrah,
followed by her mysterious death. Could the kindhearted eyebrow waxer
who Farrah berated in public really be the killer, as the police
suspect? Courtney thinks otherwise, and with the help of her
imaginative sleuth fairy, sets out to dig up the truth behind this
puzzling murder . . .

A
Flicker of a Doubt

A
Fairy Garden Mystery Book 4

From
Agatha Award-winning author Daryl Wood Gerber, the fourth in an
enchantingly whimsical series featuring Courtney Kelly, the owner of
a fairy-gardening and tea shop in Carmel, California. It’s a
special place brimming with good vibes and the kind of magical
assistance its proprietor will need to investigate a shocking murder
at a prestigious art show!

Making
fairy gardens, and teaching crafters how to do the same, keeps
Carmel-by-the-Sea shop owner Courtney Kelly busy—but sometimes she
has to make time for a wee bit of detective work . . .

With
a theater foundation tea and an art show planned at Violet Vickers’s
estate, Courtney is hired to create charming fairy gardens for the
event. It’s not so charming, however, when her best friend
Meaghan’s ex-boyfriend turns out to be Violet’s latest artistic
protégé. Even worse, not long after Meaghan locks horns with him,
his body is found in her yard, bludgeoned with an objet
d’murder.

There’s a gallery of suspects, from an unstable
former flame to an arts and crafts teacher with a sketchy past. But
when the cops focus on Meaghan’s business partner, who’s like a
protective older brother to her, and discover he also has a secret
financial motive, Courtney decides to draw her own conclusions.
Fearing they’re missing the forest for the trees, and with some
help from Fiona the sleuthing fairy, she hopes to make them see the
light . . .

EG Manetti

Genre:
Science Fiction Romance, Space Opera

Where
duty and passion collide.

The
first three volumes of the awarding winning Twelve Systems
Chronicles.

Life
within the Serengeti Cartel is perilous, riddled with malice and
intrigue that can threaten the mightiest of warriors. For Lilian –
brilliant, despised, and one misstep away from execution for her
father’s crimes – all that stands between her and destruction is
the powerful warrior Lucius Mercio.

THE
CARTEL: The Apprentice, Volume 1

Lucius
Mercio commands one of the most powerful Cartels in the Twelve
Systems. As clever and ambitious as he is ruthless, Lucius’ wealth,
influence, and power place him among the elite of the warrior caste.
It is not enough. Lucius intends to take his Cartel to unimaginable
heights with the aid of Lilian’s brilliance. He faces only one
obstacle. Lucius must keep Lilian alive.

BRIGHT
STAR: The Apprentice, Volume 2

Lilian’s
enemies are more determined than ever to see her destroyed. A visitor
from her past will endanger her future and threaten to destroy
Lucius’ slowly developing trust. To survive the next set of
challenges Lilian will need to find new reserves of courage, wit, and
determination.

TRANSGRESSIONS:
The Apprentice, Volume 3

Determined
to raise Serengeti to the pinnacle of power in the Twelve Systems,
Lucius has ruthlessly exploited Lilian’s brilliance to achieve his
ambitions. Within seasons, he will lead Serengeti to new heights with
the launch of Bright Star, the first stellar exploration venture in
over two centuries. With each new success, Lucius’ rivals multiply
while a traitor stalks the halls of Serengeti, determined to thwart
Lucius by any means. As the viciousness of her enemies escalates,
Lilian is forced to confront the past and choose between betraying
her oath of loyalty to Lucius and protecting the deadly secrets of
her father’s dark acts.

Twelve Systems Chronicles Volume 4

For
a year and a half, Lilian has endured the hostility, spite, and
deadly violence of those who despise her for her father’s crimes.
If not for the protection of the powerful warrior Lucius Mercio,
Lilian might not have survived. Without Lilian’s courage and
brilliance, Lucius might have lost the Serengeti Cartel to a vicious
traitor. Instead, Lucius has total control of his Cartel, and few
within Serengeti will risk his wrath to torment his
apprentice.

Determined
to advance his ambitions and reward Lilian for her role in his
success, Lucius prepares for the voyage to Fortuna in the Fourth
System. There, they will oversee the next phase of the first
interstellar space exploration in two centuries. Lilian’s
anticipation soon turns to dread as dark dreams haunt her nights,

Where
passion and duty collide – The Twelve Systems Chronicles.

Ruthless,
devious, and ambitious, Lucius Mercio has elevated the Serengeti
Group to the third wealthiest cartel in the Twelve Systems, cementing
his place among the twelve most powerful members of the ruling

Lilian.

As
Lilian begins the third and final year of her trial by ordeal, she is
more determined than ever to survive and repay Lucius’ protection
and trust with loyalty and diligence. Expecting only the meager
assignments reserved for apprentices, Lilian was stunned to receive
the conservatorship of a valuable Vistrite Crevasse—an honor
reserved for proven and trusted warriors. When a lethal disaster
strikes Desperation Mine and Refinery and imperils Lilian’s
conservatorship, hidden adversaries seize the opportunity to plot the
downfall of Serengeti.

Where duty and passion collide~

With
only a season and half left to her bond, Lilian’s enemies are
becoming desperate, and those who would see her fail seek any

the memory of the Serengeti fallen and her actions in eradicating the
Despoilers, Lilian struggles to retain her discipline for the final
five months of her apprenticeship. With her actions in the battle of
Serengeti proving her valor and loyalty beyond doubt, only the honor
proof remains – adherence to the rigid and complex Apprentice
Protocol. Although few within Serengeti will challenge her bond
proof, throughout the Twelve Systems, those who wagered against her
are facing penury and will stop at nothing to keep her from
surviving.

With
Damocles and Despoilers defeated, Lucius’ power with Serengeti and
the Third System is uncontested. Determined to advance his ambitions,
Lucius lays plans for a triumphant launch of his revolutionary
stellar exploration vehicle, the Nightingale. As he prepares to
depart for Fortuna, a new threat appears in the form of a charismatic
prelate who rouses the populace against Bright Star and Lilian’s
role the venture. The prelate will prove but the first among many
determined to thwart him through any means, including his notorious
apprentice.

When
thousands gather on Fortuna for the historical launch of the
Nightingale into orbit, Lilian finds herself treading a blade’s
edge as she attempts to adhere to the Apprentice Protocol among
adversaries who are increasingly desperate and bold. Planned as a
celebration of Serengeti achievement, the Fortuna voyage becomes a
nightmare where she is faced with deadly opponents intent on her
destruction.

Brad’s willingness to walk the fine line between what Shelly’s heart wants and what her head allows slowly wears down her resolve

Sunday, December 4th, 2022

 

A
Home For Christmas

by
Katie Eagan Schenck

Genre:
Contemporary Holiday Romance

Brad has just one
wish this Christmas: to find a real home. Having lost his parents
before joining the Marines, he misses that sense of belonging and
family. When he meets an introverted flight attendant on his journey
to start his civilian life, he wonders if this might be his chance.

After a messy
divorce, Shelly has decided the only person allowed within the
brittle walls of her broken heart is her daughter, Lilly. At least,
until she meets a friendly man who hails from her hometown while
working a routine flight. When she learns he needs a place to stay,
she offers the apartment over her garage out of the kindness of her
heart – and her desperate need for extra cash.

Even
as Brad endears himself to Shelly by saving the town’s Christmas
pageant, she attempts to keep her distance to protect the fragile
stability she’s built since her divorce. But Brad’s willingness to
walk the fine line between what Shelly’s heart wants and what her
head allows slowly wears down her resolve. And when Brad receives a
job offer near the only family he has left, Shelly must decide
whether she’s willing to risk her heart again before he leaves her
home, and her life, for good.

rising star on the Atlanta legal circuit, Beau Hartwell is the envy
of every lawyer in the city…until his past desperately comes to
