The Griffin Cryer (Griffin Riders)

by Julia Hughes

It’s an easy mistake to make – instead of whistling and calling for her dog, fifteen year old Frankie accidentally summons a griffin and his rider from an alternate universe. The Rider is tall, blond and extremely rude. On the other hand, Balkind is the sweetest, most lovable griffin Frankie’s ever met, and she’s determined to help them find a way back to their own world.

In doing so, she becomes aware that her newly discovered talent could be used to transform her own family’s tragic circumstances: Following a freak accident, Frankie’s brother has been comatose for over two years, hovering between life and death. With the mysterious Rider’s help, Frankie summons the courage to venture from her self imposed emotional prison and attempts to bring her brother home.

Dealing with parallel universes, disgruntled warriors, and hungry griffins is the easier part of Frankie’s life. At school, Frankie learns friends can become enemies, teachers aren’t always right, and the boy of your dreams can be all too human. Told in approximately 53,000 words, suitable for young adults, and all those who’ve ever dreamed of riding a griffin.

by Charlie Wood

Book Two of the STRIKE Trilogy

It has been seven months since Tobin Lloyd became the superhero known as “Strike,” and the city of Boston, Massachusetts has never been safer. Yes, it turns out Tobin is pretty good at this superhero-stuff…even if he has to balance it with hanging out with friends, doing homework, and trying to graduate from high school.

However, a threat is looming that Tobin is unaware of: the red giant named Rigel–the last follower of the super-villain Vincent Harris–is still alive, and he is plotting to continue Vincent’s invasion and enslavement of the planet Earth. To do so, he is searching for a bizarre creature known as “The Daybreaker,” a super-villain so powerful that no one on Earth (or Capricious) will be able to stop it.

Will Tobin and his friends–Orion, Keplar, and Scatterbolt–discover Rigel’s plan before it is too late? Exactly who is this Daybreaker, and where did he come from? And even if the heroes succeed, will anything ever be the same again?

Featuring new characters, new locations, and new revelations, STRIKE: DAWN OF THE DAYBREAKER is the thrilling sequel to the young adult fantasy novel STRIKE: THE HERO FROM THE SKY.

Tobin Lloyd’s adventures are about to continue…whether he is ready for them or not.

The Priestess and Her Strobe Light Burden

by Alex Carrick

Two modern magic mystery tales.

“The Priestess and Her Strobe Light Burden”. A ghost story based on a family’s mysterious and often tragic history. Where are the fathers? One woman finally breaks the cycle, but must take charge and exact retribution after a terrible accident.

Features plot twists that will appeal to readers fed up with the modern traffic scene.

“Physician to Precarious Longings”. A hanky-wringing, bring-tears-to-your-eyes romance. More literary, poetic and sentimental than Mr. Carrick’s usual. One comment: “Astonishingly rich, sumptuous writing.”

It’s a warm-hearted story, allowed to develop at its own pace, that will surprise and move you.

Mr. Carrick is a critically-acclaimed author whose story “The Size of the Skip” – found in “Three Scoops” Is A Blast! – was short-listed for the 2010 Lorian Hemingway Short Story Award. In 2011, he received another Honorable Mention in the world-renowned Hemingway competition for “Caboose Follies”, which appears in “Four Scoops” Is Over The Top.

On the Edge of Twilight: 22 Tales to Follow You Home

by Gregory Miller

Gregory Miller writes: “â?¦time fades old frights.” A clever line yet not quite true, if one is to believe these stories, many of which feature the departed and their undiminished entanglement with the living. Miller walks an undulating line between the creepy and nostalgic, the macabre and sweet, the malevolent and innocent – a provocative blend that leaves the reader wistful for many who have passed, but also relieved to leave some of the more vindictive spirits behind. In short, this collection, his third, is a tapestry of diverse tales that resonate in surprising and unusual ways.

The Lingerie Shop (Book 7) – Vampire Hunting

by Trisha Miller

The Lingerie Shop

A dark, romantic fantasy

copyright © 2013 Trisha Miller.

Vampire Hunting

Peter gave Katya a look, “Vampire hunting, I’m not sure I’m comfortable with this,” he said.

“You will need the practice, before you even attempt to take on the Guardians. You said you would help me.”

“If you two need more time, that’s fine with me,” said Bill, “I can think of a lot better ways of spending an evening.”

Peter shuffled his feet and looked down at the ground, “I know I said I would help,” said Peter, “but it’s too weird.”

“Can’t you just do it for me, Peter? I can’t do it alone,” said Katya.

He looked at her lovely face, serious in the fading twilight. “Hell! Ok: I guess I’m as ready as I ever will be. Let’s do it!”

“Brilliant! Said Bill and clomped off towards his van. He emerged with three waist quivers stuffed tight with arrows. “That’s 30 each, don’t waste them: I doubt we’ll get a lot of time to fetch â??em back.”

Katya clipped a quiver on her waist band, slid an arrow out and held it in front of her, the silver head shimmering in the moonlight. She examined the mechanism, “You did a brilliant job with these heads Bill.”

Bill grinned, revealing a gap in his front teeth from bare knuckle fighting. “I do my best, Princess. They’ll shatter and drill their way through virtually any body armor, then open up like a silver flower on entry and release the shaft. The buggers will never get it out.”

“Sounds gruesome,” said Peter. “I didn’t think vampires wore body armor?”

“They don’t,” said Katya, “just the Guardians.”

“Guardians?” asked Bill.

“Sort of vampire police I suppose: they ensure the vampires keep to the law,” said Katya.

“You seem to know an awful lot about them,” said Peter.

“Let’s get going, while we still have the light,” said Bill.
