Ghost Writer

Best Young Adult Book, Best Ebook, 2015 Idaho Author Awards

Sam expected a new phone for her birthday. Instead, she got an old leather diary that was supposed to be some kind of heirloom. So, she wrote something snarky in it about the really, really great gift and tossed it aside. What was even the point of all those blank pages and no keyboard? Later, she noticed someone else was writing in the diary every day. First, she thought it was her dad, who gave her the awesome gift in the first place. He was playing a trick on her and pretending to be some girl from a hundred years ago. Like she was going to believe that? Then one night she happened to see words forming across the page one letter at a time and the next thing she knew she was standing on top of her bed like rug sharks were circling below and she so had to text Hailey if she could just stop biting her fingers.

by M. R. Mathias

Dragon Racer 1 is the first book of a new “All Ages,” Gaslamp, fairy tale saga, by multiple award winning, #1 Amazon bestselling author,
M. R. Mathias.

Dragon Racers

Hovering in the Otherworld above a dystopian land called the Dregs is a place where humans, dwarves, and all the creatures of fae gather once a year to wager fortunes and celebrate the spirit of competition. The place is called Sky Island, for the dragons race around it. Those who risk life, limb, and wing to compete before the gods are granted a kingdom of their own if they win. It is no small thing.

But to race at Sky Island is by invitation only. A dragon racer must first win a Chalice in the realm of men before the gods will even take notice.

Dragon Racer 1

After losing her mother, Sharrah Che has moved in with her widowed Aunt. She and Aunt Sadie work at Guotin’s bakery across the lane and enjoy a decent life living under the king’s protection just off of prosperous Gaslamp Avenue. Not all single women are as lucky in this steam and spring powered kingdom full of poor, prosperous, and sometimes unsavory men. Just when Sharrah is starting to feel normal again, and because she is now of an appropriate age, her aunt decides to take her to the dragon races. From there Sharrah’s life is twisted into chaos after she is turned into little more than a prize for Luumin, a terrifying wizard with eyes the color of fall leaves.

At Dragon’s Keep, while punishing Luumin, angry King Travvingto mistakes Sharrah for a racer in training and orders her to ride the dragon named Azure in an upcoming race. All she has to do is hold on and let dark Anshi win.

But things are never so simple.
