STEM (Zombpunk Book 1)

by Christopher Blankley

Elder Tull is a Puke, one of the few unconverted. Without a stem, he’s been discarded by society.


Those converted now fed directly on electricity, through a power socket attached to their sternums. This cybernetic implant has transformed mankind: everyone is beautiful, everyone is healthy, everyone is thin. The stem regulates everything.

Meanwhile, the Pukes are left to scavenge in the gutter, their minds burned out by starvation. Forced to squabble for what few crumbs remain, they’ve resigned themselves to living like the walking dead, shambling through a world of the eternally young…

Until the day it all comes crashing down.

One tiny glitch in the stem and the world goes insane. The few Pukes left now face a new threat: the mindless, snarling jaws of those Stems that had once seemed so perfect. With the lights out, they’re searching for a new source of energy…. hungry for human flesh…

Zombpunk: STEM is a postmodernist reinterpretation of the classic zombie genre, where the ranks of the walking dead are not filled with filthy, rotting corpses, but the young, forever perfect empty husks of a collapsed consumer culture.

When the world finally runs out of food, will the living envy the (un)dead?

The Doll Dilemma (Kids’ Court Book 1)

by Caron Pescatore

New cover. New series title. Same great story!

A headless doll. A boy with a habit of breaking toys. A sister who is convinced her brother is the guilty party.

Eleven-year-old Luanna Porcello is a peacemaker at heart. So it’s no surprise that she wants to help when she overhears twin siblings, Jenny and Jimmy Corbett, fighting over who broke Jenny’s beloved doll. Jenny is positive Jimmy is the culprit, but he claims he’s innocent. To uncover the truth, Luanna decides to start a kids’ court.

With the help of a few friends, Luanna gets to work. Believing in Jimmy’s innocence, she assumes the role of his attorney. Best friend, Phoebe Chen, becomes her private investigator. Jake Crandall, Jimmy’s fiercely loyal, but not so bright, best friend, is thrilled at the prospect of being the court bailiff, because he’ll get to carry a gun. Jake’s thirteen-year-old sister, Heather, is recruited to be the judge. Although she’s way too cool to hang out with “children,” the thought of all that power is too much for her to resist.

As the drama unfolds in court, unexpected facts are revealed by the testimony of each witness. With all the evidence stacking up against Jimmy, Luanna begins to wonder…is her client as innocent as she thinks he is?

Join Luanna and the Kids’ Court as they delve into their first case and try to uncover the truth of who really destroyed Jenny’s doll!

by Carolyn R Scheidies

The last days of the War Between the States, Dawn goes mute in terror when, from her hiding place high in a tree, she watches Union soldiers desecrate her sister Julia. A lieutenant’s care of her sister in her last moments leaves her confused. In a single afternoon, Dawn loses her sister, her plantation home and her faith.

Still and all, she must stay strong for her younger brother, Caleb, as they make their way through the war devastation and danger to find their uncle in Boston. Once there, they find only a temporary respite as their welcoming uncle not only dies of his lingering illness, but also places them in the care of his lawyer who has no intention of providing for two orphaned young people.

Instead, they find themselves sent west to Kansas like orphan children. A kindly minister helps them along the way, but even he cannot prevent the dreadful man from claiming Caleb or from leaving Dawn stranded and alone. As Caleb fights against Jars who paid his way west, the lieutenant, Austin Andreeson, who has never forgotten the dying young woman’s request to care for her sister â??Dawn,” discovers that very young woman and her brother in need of his help.

Austin steps up to take them both under his wing and to his prairie home.

Will Dawn release her fear to trust her Heavenly Father with her family, her home and her new found faith in order to find a future of hope…and love?

When Gargoyles Rise (Shades and Shadows: When Gargoyles Rise Book 1)

by Ashley C. Harris

â?? â?? â?? â?? â?? ‘Bella Forrest and Cassandra Clare fans can get ready for their most addicting read yet!’

From International Bestselling author Ashley C. Harris.

When Rose was born in the year 1544, she and the other gargoyles were a beautiful race of humans with dragon’s wings. Created by magic, the gargoyles were able to do and take whatever they wanted… Until the vampires came, and with them, they brought a curse.

Almost five hundred years later, Rose awakens from stone in Washington DC, to a world that’s very much changed. The kingdom of the gargoyles is no more; instead, the same group of blood suckers that cursed Rose’s family now rule a hierarchy of shades and shadows.

Desperate to awaken her loved ones and break the spell, Rose learns she must convince Sean Noble, a human, to fall in love with her. Something that should have been easy… if he and Rose weren’t only seventeen, and required to attend school.

Sean and his high school girlfriend dislike Rose as much as they do homework. And to make things worse, the handsome vampire prince, Adamus, who betrayed Rose in the year 1556, he and his bad boy brother have surfaced….

Rose, before graduation, must find a way to keep her identity secret from Adamus, not let him get too close, and trick Sean into falling in love. Easy if you have wings, right? Not so much.

Readers of Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and Shadow Hunters will love this story’s female hero who brings a new level of fierce into a supernatural game.
