 Called by his duty to a friend, Gabe is headed back to a place he’d never thought he’d have to see again. Even as his plane touches down, he feels a sense of dread. And his intuition proves to be right: the small ranching town hidden in the mountains carries a curse that has never let him go. But a stranger appears – in the form of a long, tall, soft-spoken young cattleman – to make sure he survives his visit. There is an immediate bolt of electricity between the two, something like Gabe has never known or even believed in. But perhaps his faith in the power of Magic is the second biggest mistake he’s ever made . . .

FlamesOfGuilt_400x600_115dpiAfter the death of his wife and child, Prince Michael is left in despair. Soon after, a prophecy is given and his grieving heart is set on a mission to find the remedy – the bearer of the Flames of Guilt. Though he doesn’t understand the full meaning of the words spoken, he sets out to fulfill what he believes will be his destiny.
But destiny doesn’t always come the way we expect it.
After years of searching, the nobleman is ready to give up, until the day he enters the rusty gates of the Kingdom of Gloom. Under the dreary skies and by the light of the bonfires scattered over the cursed kingdom, he meets Princess Evangeline, the ruling noble, and a woman cloaked in mystery and a bad reputation.
 He came to Gloom only for a peace treaty to please his father, but he finds something in the rundown kingdom that is much more important.
Something that will uproot his world, and change everything he knows.
Everything he believes.
Everything he hopes for.
Everything that matters.

Fighting against the system sucks. It’s even worse when you’re only sixteen and you’ve already been devastated by it, while your parents stood by and watched. Allyster Williams started fighting the moment he realized that the life of segregation he’s always known is wrong. In his world, people are separated by their horns and their halos – physical characteristics that have borne lies, hate, distrust, violence, and rumors – and it’s only getting worse. Allyster may be young, but as he discovers others who are willing to hear the truth and change for the better, he must grapple with hope to try and find the strength to keep fighting.
To raise the flag.
To knock down the barricades.
To prove that things can get better, even as his greatest nightmare becomes a reality.

boyeatingplants_promoSixteen-year-old Allyster Williams is thrown from his world: BAM! He is left unnerved, and unsure, even as he tries to remember how he ended up falling from the sky so dramatically. As he inspects this strange new place, Allyster finds himself surrounded by massive, flesh-eating plants who have found him guilty of committing the worst of all treasons – dating outside of his own kind. Now they have declared him lunch, and Allyster must find a way to escape. He befriends a wingless fairy named Lucy along the way – though her guidance often comes in the form of insults and trivial information. Allyster’s best friend Jasper is on hand as well, but so is his never-ending mouth, which seems to hurt more than help. Then there’s the brain bugs. And the smell. There’s really no getting away from the smell.

Please avoid all snapping plants, and for goodness sakes, don’t touch the bright orange (and yummy-looking) brain bugs! Brace yourselves as the boys fight to NOT become delicious entrées, and as they wager the cost of standing up for what they know is right.   

The full novel, Horns & Halos: Against The Giant, will be coming soon! Until then, enjoy this short story for FREE. Get it HERE!

James is tired. He is tired of being afraid all the time, tired of fear when he is awake, and of nightmares when he sleeps. Mostly he is tired of all the bad memories. He is young, and dying a slow death inside . . . content to be left alone. Even his artwork has come to a screeching halt – his imagination too sore for exercise. But one day, a fearless free spirit of a young man intrudes upon his solitude and captivates his imagination. James fights between opening himself to Ryf and a point of view he never experienced before, and doing what is expected of him. When he makes the wrong decision, Ryf challenges him to come out of the safety of the shell he has built. Can he do it? Or will he submit to fear and let Ryf go?

machines_promoFelix Todd is living a happy life. He has a career going. He has a stable relationship with a man he feels he owes everything – a man he’s endlessly loyal to. Even when the media labels Nigel Maxton things like “mad scientist” and “recluse mastermind”, Felix is supportive of the inventor’s endeavors and the machines he spends so much time working on, even when the one starts to become a little too life-like for Felix’s taste. But then sickness enters their house and their somewhat secluded lives. Shortly after, Felix finds out that there’s a murderess on the loose. The infamously named Murder Maid takes advantage of – and eventually kills – her employers, which leaves Felix wondering if maybe their new maid isn’t who she claims to be. Now it’s a race against time and the poison he knows has invaded the life he cherishes so much.
