Enter the Witch (Witches of Whisper Grove Book 1)

by Andris Bear

Evangeline Winther is just a normal gal living a normal life. She has a new job in a new town, and nothing can stand in her way.

Except the new job. And the new town. Oh, and the fact that she’s the heir to a centuries old coven of witches, which apparently comes with a familiarâ??the stereotypical black catâ??that spends more time licking himself than helping her learn magic.

Mechanic Shane Carlson has heard the tales of witches in the small town of Whisper Grove his whole life. Did he believe them? Uh, no. Not until he was rear-ended by a beautiful girl who seems to unlock abilities in both of them.

When her gifts make themselves known, Evangeline realizes Whisper Grove isn’t the sleepy little town she thought it to be.
There are secrets buried beneath the picturesque surface, but even the deepest secrets have a way of rising.

Especially when the new witch in town can hear them whispering.

The Forest God’s Bride

by Genevieve St-Yves

An Arranged Marriage That Will Save Two Worlds

To honor an ancient pact, Eva is chosen by her coven to wed a god. Unable to refuse with no less than the survival of herself and the witches on the line, the reluctant bride travels to the heart of the Night Forest to meet her groom. She has no intention of forging a true relationship with Eckhard, prince of the forest gods. Yet his patient and chivalrous nature compels her to let down her guard.

Eva’s gruff kindness and hidden vulnerability sparks feelings that make him believe they can transform an arranged marriage into a real union.

The Swamp King, enemy of the forest gods, harbors an unrelenting desire to conquer the Night Forest and destroy Eva and Eckhard. Only the witch and the prince stand a chance of defeating the monstrous demon and saving their two worlds from his malevolent influence. Will it cost them their blossoming love and their lives?

Contains discussion of antiquated medical procedures and research practices that some readers may find disturbing



A Steampunk Christmas Carol

by Stephen Hunt

So, dear reader, you thought Spiderman and Iron Man was the ultimate team-up? Or Captain America and the Hulk, perhaps? No!

Such paltry partnerships were long before authors Charles Dickens and Stephen Hunt teamed up together to bring the world the steampunk adaptation of A Christmas Carol. This tome imaginatively entitled ‘A STEAMPUNK Christmas Carol … the fantastical adaptation no-one asked for, yet everyone somehow desperately needed.

Yes, this – spoilers – classic tale of a grumpy miser’s Xmas-related redemption has been recast in the Jackelian Kingdom, a far-future steampunk Earth where Great Britain has rejoined the European mainland through continental drift (Brexiteer trigger warning).

The original tale has surely been vastly improved by the addition of airships, steam-driven computers and a robot called Boffin.

Forget the Muppet version. Forget that TV one with Captain Picard as Scrooge. ‘A Steampunk Christmas Carol’ is surely the comical and light-hearted definitive version that will be remembered millions of years in the future, after humanity has risen and fallen countless times across the endless cycle of history.

And if it isn’t?

Well, failing some great technological advancements in immortality treatments or cryogenic suspension, you, dear reader are not going to be around to know about it.

Or, are you…?

Now with extra cogs and a SHOCK!!! ending thrown in for no extra cost.

Meanwhile, the Knights of Time are scattered throughout the Time Stream. Judah & Joan Raines appear on 1930’s Lae Island to locate the infamous pilot, Amelia Earhart. Yet unbeknownst to them, a familiar face is tracking their every movement, searching for a piece to the mysterious Project Dreamcoat.

Meet Rolland Wright – a seventeen year old orphan living out of his car in rural Woodland Hills, California. Aside from grappling with being abandoned by his drunken father two years previous following his mothers mysterious murder, his life mostly revolves around finding a warm place to sleep at night. When one day he is attacked by men claiming to have killed his father, Rolland discovers a strange ability to slow the flow of time around him, beginning a journey that takes him to places outside of time, space, and eventually to the early 19th century to fight the sinister General Andrew Jackson. With the help of a rag-tag group of historical and mythical figures with various supernatural abilities of their own (Joan of Arc, Jesse James, etc) known as the Knights of Time, Rolland solves the mystery behind his mother’s murder, falls in love, battles the evil Edward Vilthe – reaper of souls, and finds a home of his own in the paradise known as Eden.

By Death Defined

by Hugo Damas

The invasion has begun!
The arcane forces of the French Empire crash upon the shores of Belfast, with the Emperor himself at the lead. They threaten to deal the final blow that will guarantee an end to a centuries-old war with Britannia. If they fail, they will lose everything — an unprecedented risk that none can understand.
Making use of gunpowder and steam technology, Ireland rallies to defend against its supernatural conquerors and their arcane weaponry.
Among the Irish defenders are the O’Leons, a family who seeks to defend the city that has been their home for generations, all the while unaware of the important role they have when it comes to this historic event that will, one way or another, tip the war unto an end.
Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, however, is very much aware – that is why he is there.

Glorious or grim, grand or filthy, death will always be defining. For one Irish family, that means showing the impact that the death of the individual can have on the history of a world.
