THE LAST LINE. THE LAST WORDS. THE LAST CHANCE.

Ifferon is one of the last in the bloodline of the dead god Telm, who mated with mortal women, and who imprisoned the Beast Agon in the Underworld. Armed with a connection to the estranged gods in the Overworld and a scroll bearing Telm’s powerful dying words, he is tasked with ensuring the god’s vital legacy: that Agon remain vanquished. Fear forces Ifferon to abandon his duty, but terror restores his quest when the forces of Agon find his hideaway in an isolated coastal monastery.

Weighed down by the worries of the world, but lifted up by the companions he encounters along the way, Ifferon embarks on a journey that encompasses the struggles of many peoples, the siege of many lands, and discoveries that could bring hope to someâ??or doom to all.

Enter the world of Iraldas. Answer the Call of Agon.

Interview with the Author

Q – What makes the Children of Telm series special?

A – The world, the characters, and the story that drives those characters through that world. Iraldas is not just another fantasy realm; it’s a place where gods are trapped like mortals, where the blood of deities intermingles with common folk, and where the stuff of legends is an everyday reality.

Readers can expect intense and nail-biting battles, unique and unusual characters, lyrical language that lifts and inspires, a magical world that is almost as alive as our own, and moments of hope and horror, which can move us to laughter or tears. In other words, a classic epic fantasy adventure.

Q – Why is fantasy such an important genre?

A – I see fantasy as the modern heir of ancient mythology, the continuation of those tales that moved so many people in bygone days. The best fantasy novels not only offer us a means of escape, but help us better explore the real issues of the world, under the veil of symbol and myth.

I think this is why there are so many fantasy best sellers, in print or Kindle, because it answers to a core human needâ??the desire to understand ourselves and the world around us.

Q – So, what makes these books a must read?

A – Because the Children of Telm explores the premise that man and god are not so far apart as they might seem. The series brings readers across a vast and varied landscape, with many different races and cultures, and many different battles, which are part of one great war against one great enemy: the Beast Agon.

The bottom line: If you enjoy lots of action and suspense, intriguing characters, epic fantasy adventure, and a beautiful world you can escape to, then The Children of Telm series is for you.

Q – Can readers expect more stories set in Iraldas?

A – Definitely. I’ve been working on a few short stories called The Memory Magus, the first two of which are now available. There will be more to follow, and I hope to flesh out the world of Iraldas even more in the months and years to come.

Thanks for reading!

Ageless Sea (The Ageless Series Book 1)

by M.R. Polish

**This is the first book in a completed series**
The crash was no accident. Fate carried Brady and his airplane to the isolated island where Karis was banished to live alone. She feared the worst as she sifted through the wreckage, sure that no one could survive. But there he was, barely breathing yet still alive.

The closer she got to him, the more her powers awakened. He was like a magnet she was drawn to. Maybe it was the years alone that left her yearning for companionship, or maybe it was the taut muscles in his arms that beckoned her to come closer, either way she had a hard time controlling her thoughts. She knew things about him that he couldn’t remember, things that were blocked from his memory. He wasn’t from earth either, and she needed his help to save both of their worlds. But the closer she gets to Brady the more she knows her world is with him.

Even with a woman as beautiful as Karis, Brady was well trained, but he wasn’t prepared to care as much as he did. Being an underground fighter made him the wrong man for a future Queen of a different world, and he knew it. But that didn’t stop the yearning he felt deep inside. It didn’t stop his heart from racing when she was around. And it didn’t stop him from falling in love.

The Ageless Series is a Fantasy Romance.
M.R. Polish is also the author of the Young Adult, five star paranormal, Wolf Spell.



Q: Are We Not Human? A: We Are Corpses! (The Corpse)

by Richard Knight

Acting as a sequel to A Boy and His Corpse, this free standalone short story concerns teenage necromancer, Alan Chandler, as he wrestles (No pun intended) with the possibility of his undead federation including living wrestlers in its stable of combatants. But Alan and his band of corpses won’t go down without a fight! Will the Undead Wrestling Federation become half corpse/half living wrestlers, or will Alan get his way and keep the UWF just that–undead. Find out in this short story of guts, glory, and braaaaains.

Interview with the author

Q.How is this story connected to A Boy and His Corpse?This short story is a follow-up to that novel. It concerns Alan Chandler and his undead wrestling federation, which we saw at the end of A Boy and His Corpse.Q. What would you categorize this story as? Is it occult horror?In a way, yes, but it’s tame occult horror. I’d say it’s closer to zombie comedy. There’s more humor in this free short story than horror.Q. The main character in this story is African American but you don’t make that point known. Why not?I feel that too many stories point out a character’s race, but I don’t think that’s important. We’re all similar as human beings, so I didn’t want the reader to find out about a character’s race through some silly speech pattern, which you sadly find too often in fiction.Q. But you still call it African American Science Fiction. Why?Well, I am an African American author, so wouldn’t it fit into that category?Q. Would you also put the story in the science fiction telekinesis field?Absolutely. Moving a corpse is moving something, isn’t it?Q. What do you ultimately want people to get out of this story?I want people to laugh and sign up for my mailing list. I want us to be friends! 🙂



Mythical

by William Petersen

Upon inspecting the scene for himself, Marcus uncovers an ongoing struggle that has lasted for thousands of years, much worse than any terror plot, holding mankind’s future in the balance. With time running out, limited resources and only a frozen stranger to help, he must stop a terrible bloodline of ancient tyrants and evil men bent on world domination and total destruction, before they kill the last magical creatures on Earth.-

Korvaan is a world of all-powerful Emperors and jealous rival Kings, where the Dar’Shilaar craft items of magic from unbound magestones. From magic portals and mirrors that can traverse great distances for use in travel or communication, to flying ships and floating citadels, the Dar’Shilaar have proven almost anything can be done.

Little does Hoyle know that his latest choice in jobs, the theft of a shipment of unbound magestones, will set in motion events that will reshape his world.

Celia is a member of the Dar’Shilaar, a Spell Wielder, who discovers the theft and is determined to track down the thief and bring them to justice. Complications arise when she encounters Hoyle, and determines that he is by far the smaller threat.

Hoyle and Celia team up to investigate the forces behind the theft and uncover a far ranging plot that twists and turns, trapping them within its web, forcing them to prove their innocence to the Emperor, or face execution.

Amber Monet

by Amber Karazsia

*This book is intended for 16+ mature teens, young adults, adults, and mature audiences*

“Shhhhh…Don’t you know, that sex, is freedom?” Prepare yourself as you enter the top secret and sexual realm known as “The Rough”. Surround yourself with London’s finest prostitutes, geniuses, transsexuals, homosexuals, bellydancers, fortune-tellers, the rich and famous- as you await the moment you will gaze your eyes upon the prized and worshipped Amber Monet.

Amber Monique is a pure and sheltered adolescent, seeking more adventure out of life, and becomes manipulated by two very successful business-oriented noblemen. She is persuaded to enter the secret world of high-priced prostitution, being named “Amber Monet”, and is strategically advertised to become a worshipped idol to the public. Her virginity is arranged to be sold during an auction at a privately owned sex club named “The Rough”. As Amber Monet begins to evolve from an adolescent to a woman, her new identity becomes her liberation. This ultimately leads to her sexual and emotional freedom, and is expressed in detail throughout the book. Marquess Blythe, the owner and nobleman of Amber Monet, finds himself falling in love, with what he interprets as his very own “Created Woman”. This story not only has the most unique reason for being written, it is also a monumental, imperfect advance in the written world, which will seize the hearts and minds of those who read it.

Amber Monet is a written expression of the author’s own alter-ego. It is based on some true life facts and experiences, including her very own internal struggles. Purposefully written with flaws, inaccuracies, over dramatization, and an amateur writing style, the Author strategically planned imperfection, to share with the world the beautiful, raw, and imperfect reality of the journey of life and all of its impurities. The life of Amber Monet was written in a mental institution and created so that the author may be able to live vicariously through her, giving herself life and freedom with every word.

The Dozen and Three

by D.J.K. Rach

The year is 233DE in Karanya. The country – abandoned by its ancient and enigmatic owners – is now home to the Dalians.
Now, the Dalians have settled, but corrupt Dukes and rulers exploit the land and its people. This leads Jalrun Sresal to take matters into his own hands to free his home, and earns a life sentence in prison for his actions.
Jalrun is liberated from prison years later by a mysterious young wizard, who offers him a new life with an order of Knights who seek to free Karanya from this affliction: The Dozen and Three.
When a dark force intrudes the minds of the fifteen Knights and their dragon Soul-Bound, and foretells their impending doom, the purpose of the Dozen and Three must shift from simple justice to absolute survival.

The Dozen and Three is a precursor to The Draconic Assembly and the Derelict Brothers Series, and follows Jalrun as he faces an ancient evil. The Knights must not allow everything that they know and hold dear to be consumed by Maqerey.



The Thief’s Apprentice: Volume One of the Bookbinder Series

by Charles Tripp

“Nip” is a skinny, dirty, underfed, poorly clothed thirteen-year-old girl who also happens to be an exceptional thief. One summer day while stealing a book as part of her initiation in the thieves’ guild, she is caught by a Judge. Sentenced to a year’s hard labor by the harsh court system in the city of Dom, Nip is rescued by an unexpected benefactor: Luyten Pardalis, the man and bookseller she stole from. Given the alternative sentence of working for Luyten for two years, she is contacted by her guild master, Old Diob, who orders her to stay with the bookseller.

Frightened at first, Nip comes to love the much-older Luyten, who shows her the only kindness she has known in her short life. As Luyten takes Nip on his long journey home through the three seas that carve through the center of their world, Nip is torn between her girlish infatuation and her duty to Old Diob. Diob has a particularly strong hold on Nip: her younger sister, Lummi, whom Diob regularly threatens to sell into slavery if Nip does not steal a valuable item from Luyten.

Nip’s circumstances become even more difficult when she reaches the island nation of Siluca, Luyten’s home. There she meets Luyten’s wife, Mèdie, a beautiful, mecurial and highly intelligent princess from the kingdon of Insus, far to the east. Mèdie takes it upon herself to teach Nip how to be a proper young lady, and pushes the young thief to the breaking point with her exacting standards.

Complicating things further is the political situation on Siluca. Nip learns that the Pardalis family once ruled the island as kings, a power that Luyten’s ancestors surrendered only at the point of revolution. There are forces at work that would return the Pardalis family to the throne, and the family has been ripped apart by the machinations of the old nobility.

Nip discovers Luyten’s true profession; he is not simply a bookseller, but a book-binder, someone who makes Buchs. Buchs are tomes of immense power and exceedingly dangerous if misused. Some are used for medicine and can cure nearly any disease. Others power the great sailing ships of the Middle Seas. Still others can be used as dreadful weapons. It is one of these Buchs that Nip is to steal, a special Buch hidden in the great library of Luyten’s home of La Caille.

Nip is caught between the political forces of Siluca, her love for Luyten, her loathing for Mèdie, and her fear for her sister’s safety. How she chooses will affect not just the Pardalis family or the island of Siluca, but potentially the entire world; the particular Buch she is to steal harbors powers that none of them can comprehend and that could threaten the whole of existence.



The Blink Stone: Book One Of The Chronicles Of Amishval (Volume 1)

by James Pesek

In a land where magic is said to have died in the Old World in a final climactic battle during the End Wars, where sorcery is the stuff of legend three young thieves discover the contrary. Magic is alive, the black market abounds with relics of power from an ancient time and there are plenty of people within the city-state of Amishval who will do just about anything to rediscover the secrets left of that earlier age.

A young thief, believing a dream he has of a purse that looks like a tiny dragon filled with a hand full of gold coins to be a premonition, involves his small crew in a risky venture into the Silks Market to pick the pocket of a wealthy merchant. But will the lie he tells one of his crew be worth the score? Will the voice of a dragon that invades his mind signal that his luck has finally run out?

The dream proves to be reality and the crew, although split up in the process, come away with a purse that has a gold stitched dragon full of gold coins – and a little something else. In an effort to reunite they find themselves beset on all sides by different groups who want what the purse contains.

So begins a single day that will change the lives of three young thieves, barely more than beggars, thrusting them into the underbelly of a complex city where there are men with truth potions, Bone Pickers who summon demons, a Thieves Guild led by a Master bent on eternal life and a guard leader with a sixth sense.

by Sarah PJ White

‘God didn’t create the world; people like us did.’

After a chance encounter with a drunken man, Crystal looks for answers to who she is and why strange things keep happening to her since she turned twenty-one. She discovers a range of human half-bloods including Flyahs, Healahs & Angels – they’re not cute or necessarily friendly. They’re also living amongst us – and she’s one of them.

In her search for truth, she inadvertently discovers the Bible is a cover-up for the real, much more sinister story of the creation of Earth, heaven and hell – and why so many people disappear every day. The reality casts new light on the whole religious community, the world at large and who really is ‘in charge’ – whilst putting Crystal firmly in the headlights of danger. So many people want her kept quiet and the story to remain buried forever.
