by Constance Barker

An Ancient Mirror Threatens Death and Madness

***This is a Paranormal Mystery***

The mysterious death of a wealthy matriarch…
A cameo that pulses when danger is present…
An antique shop only open in the dead of night…
A funky sidekick…

Grace Longstreet just wants to go to the beach, but when the matriarch of a wealthy family dies mysteriously in her home, the ocean breezes will have to wait. When the family of the deceased wants Grace to declare the death suspicious, her intuition flares.

Grace is an insurance appraiser/adjuster for fine antiquities and a part time archeologist. She also wears a magical cameo that warns her of impending danger. Her mother’s death, ruled a suicide, has always haunted her and she believes the death wasn’t what it seemed as well.

Grace longs for peace, but her heritage, job and the people in her life give her just the opposite. Now as she sifts through the fine antiquities left by the deceased, she comes upon a pair of ancient mirrors with ornate snake frames. Her cameo goes spastic. Are the mirrors cursed? Did they have something to do with woman’s death? Can they be to blame for the next two deaths?

Find out as Grace, and her wacky sidekick Paisley, search for clues in this newest series.

The Knight of Inner Light: The Phoenix Empire – Book 1

by Josh Hilp

When Wes’s village is destroyed by bandits, he awakens to a new, powerful magic that he doesn’t understand, and doesn’t even truly control. This power leaves him with newfound responsibilities, and problems, as he struggles to keep important promises to those around him and those long gone as the world around him begins a slow, painful descent into chaos and darkness as demons begin roaming the lands for the first time in an Age.

Wes’s power might just be able to make the difference and save everyone, but he’s just one boy.

Beyond demons and darkness, Wes has to come to terms with the fear that magic, especially his own immense new power invokes in the people of the Kingdom of Strata, as well as the class system that leaves the nobility towering over those they deem beneath themselves.

Even if he manages to save the Kingdom, and those around him, will he still be a good person when all is said and done?

As Princess Arienne, Alice gets to experience the fantastical medieval adventure of her dreams.

But her virtual life is far from perfect.

Her fiance is a pain in the ass. Her secret crush is murdered in front of her. Then she’s abducted by pirates, led by the wickedly charming Alfred Du Bois.
