From the author of the bestselling Zyan Star fantasy series comes a new world of magic...
Evryn’s got mad skills at playing hide and seek. She can find lost children, hack the most secure databases, pretty much anything. Except for the one thing she desires most: the knowledge of who her parents are, why they abandoned her, and what her special talent means about who and what she really is.
So, when a guy named Seeker appears quite literally out of nowhere, claiming to know about her past and offering her a job, Evryn can’t say yes fast enough. Even if it does mean following him to another realm. As in, mind-blowingly, not Earth. Apparently she’s part of an elite clan of Hunters descending from Artemis who can find just about anything in all of time and space. As the last of Artemis’ direct lineage, Evryn is her clan’s best shot at finding a lost city before rival clans do.
Not just any city, but the flying, realm-hopping city of Skye. Aboard Skye is the Artifex, a magical device with the power to create or destroy worlds. Everyone wants the device, and with Evryn’s super-powered lineage, it means everyone wants her, too. It’s hard to decide who she can trust, even within her own clan. After she discovers a strange, alluring connection to the Artifex, she’s not even sure she can trust herself. Worse yet, the only person who may be able to help her is the Timekeeper, the sadistic ancient being who created the Artifex. An interdimensional war is brewing, and Evryn is right at the epicenter of it all.
Let the hunt begin.

Do you have a dragon problem?
It's not easy living with a dragon in your belly, but I think I've finally figured it out. We're going to be just fine, so long as the rest of the world doesn't find out. Which of course, is going to happen any second.
It's not like I want life to be easy, but maybe, we could leave out getting stalked across Eastern Washington by reporters, followed by cops, and impersonated by strangers on the internet. Maybe, my gang could stop fighting among themselves, I could stop gathering runaways like a mother hen, and the stoner kid with a megalomania complex and a dragon that dwarfs my own will just leave us alone and go away.
I've never been an optimist, but maybe, if the world would stop conspiring against me, I could keep it from finding out about dragons.
And get Doc back?
My personal, invisible, Blue smartass isn't helping. Unfortunately, he's right. Doc left us. Now everyone's looking at me to fix things, our gang's coming apart at the seams, and I think I'm being haunted by a silver death worm.
You made that up.
Never mind. Some days, it's best to let the dragon win.

FREE only this weekend!Aigle Comyenti hears the last notes of an alluring tune and makes a sudden decision. He MUST have it. However, the musician -- on her way to an art festival to perform -- not only teaches Aigle the melody, but also steals his trusty pendant: the coppery piece given to him by his real father. The jewellery, worthless to the young woman, Mallory, is immensely valuable to Aigle and his vanishing kind; the empathetic mindmerging comyentis.
He has to follow Mallory, but where she is going, Aigle is reluctant to set foot; it is a city crammed with the comyentis' number one enemy: humans.
What Aigle finds next within the walls of the city of Traumermoure is beyond what he could ever have dreamed up. Bizarre things are happening.
Who is putting the city's visitors to sleep and to what end?
Should Aigle, who has powers beyond men's understanding, and is at high risk for discovery, care? Will he risk everything that is at stake for one human he hardly knows?
For to wake Mallory up from her deep sleep, he must enter her dreams . . .
'City of Dreams' is a YA stand-alone fantasy novella (a spin-off from THE COMYENTI SERIES) that captures the enchantment of the world of art and dreams, and the power of friendship and hope.
"As usual, I loved it how Hellenthal weaved deeper meaning into the story. What is at first glance a well written fantasy adventure with likable characters is at second glance filled with life lessons, criticism and inspiration."
"The insight, humor, drama, and extremely interesting characters in this book combined to make it a very enjoyable read."
--Terry W. Sprouse
"Ms. Hellenthal's story reminds us that perhaps what we dream of, is not always the answer to heart's true desire . . .Captivating!"
Excerpt: "Have you ever wondered where stories come from? Where are paintings, sculptures and poetry, prose born? In the artist's subconscious mind? Dreams? How come some writers and painters roughly have the same idea and come up with similar creations, even though they've never read or seen anything by the other or communicated it in any way? Is there such a thing as a 'Well of Art' that all artists drink from to be inspired? And if so, how is this accomplished? Whilst asleep? Dreaming? Where is art born?"

Preston Black has a nasty habit of falling in love with the wrong type of woman. But girls who don't play nice are the least of his problems. This handsome bar band guitarist isn't washed-up, but he's about to be. He's broke, he's tired of playing covers and he's obsessed with the Curse of 27.
He's about to add 'deal with the devil' to his list.
Lucky for Preston, he has help. Like the angelic beauty who picks him up when he's down. And the university professor who helps him sort through old Appalachian hexes and curses to find the song that may be his only shot at redemption. And when things get real bad, he has the ghost of John Lennon to remind him that "nothing is real."Let Raw Dog Screaming Press author Jason Jack Miller take you to a place where love is forever even when death isn't, where magic doesn't have to be seen to be believed, where a song might be the only thing that saves your soul.
The MURDER BALLADS AND WHISKEY Series is a unique, literary, blend of dark fiction, paranormal urban fantasy and horror. It's Appalachian Gothic, Alt.Magical.Realism, Hillbilly
Horror. It's AMERICAN GODS meets JUSTIFIED. TRUE BLOOD with witches. It's Johnny Cash with a fistful of copperheads singing the devil right back to hell. THE DEVIL AND PRESTON BLACK is your ticket into a world where love can save your soul, where a song can change your destiny, and where evil still hides in the dark corners of the night.

"With this new book, Jason Jack Miller has single-handedly cornered the market on Appalachian Noir fiction, and deservedly so. The Devil and Preston Black is a page-turner laced with an audiophile's longing for the days when music was genuine, and the storytelling reminded me of a strange array of similar stories -- High Fidelity, Crossroads, Justified... -- yet it stood out from the pack as fresh, thanks to Miller's authentic Appalachian voice. Any lover of guitar music or the history of the blues will instantly see themselves reflected in the story, filtered through a noir fuzz pedal, amped up with the electricity of dark fantasy. Miller's flair for words is evident even in the title alone: I can't think of a more appropriate name than "Preston Black"! With just the right touch of magical realism, this hip take on the 'deal with the devil' story conjures up a tale that's vastly enthralling and compulsively readable. Highly recommended." Five time Bram Stoker Award winner Michael A. Arnzen
"Miller infuses his tale of longing and self-discovery with so many subtle and overt (in a good way) nods to music and its creators that his passion for music is quite evident. Even if you don't know all of the references, you know the type of music gods he's referring to. He also has created such a believable character in Preston Black that you care about the many ups and downs Miller puts him through. The finale, which I won't give away here, literally sent goosebumps down my arms. I can't remember the last time that happened while reading a book. All in all, a great read from an author with a mature voice. I look forward to reading more by Jason Jack Miller."

Having a daughter changes things. Even for God.
Jessica McCloud is God’s only begotten daughter, and she’s not super thrilled about that. Sure, she can smite and she knows juicy gossip about folks in her tiny West Texas town, but that’s about where the perks stop. Because add an overbearing Father and a handsome shyster with a knack for founding churches to the already tricky mix of girlhood and puberty, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for ultimate humiliation.
After a close call with a demon, Jessica decides that developing her ability to tell good from evil could be an especially useful survival skill for a messiah. But hopefully that can wait until, oh, high school? In the meantime, she must contend with twin bullies, abstinence-based sex education, and intense menstrual cramping (followed by lightning storms), meaning Jessica has a few things to clear off her plate before she can worry about any nonsense with the Devil.
Feel like the world's gone crazy? You're not alone. The Beginning is the first book in an epic satire series with unforgettable characters and the fresh take on politics, organized religion, and sexism that you've been waiting for.

The day I turned nineteen, I expected to gain what little freedom I could within the restrictions of my bank account and the hallucinations that had haunted me for the last six years. I expected to drive away from a life that had been dictated by the tragedy of others and shaped by the care of strangers. I expected to be alone. Actually, I relished the idea of being alone. Instead, I found fear I thought I’d overcome. Uncertainty I thought I’d painstakingly planned away. And terror that was more real than anything I’d ever hallucinated before. I’d seen terrible, fantastical, and utterly impossible things … but not love. Not until I saw him.

Archibald "Arch" Stan was a local cop in Midian, Tennessee that was good at his job, good at being a husband, and exceptionally good at hiding his disappointment at not being able to figure out what was missing in his life that made it all seem so empty.
Lafayette Hendricks looked like a drifter, a broken-down hitchhiker blown through Midian on the prevailing winds. When Arch catches him in a fight on the town square, though, things start to get weird, fast, because the guy he's fighting doesn't die when he gets shot. And Hendricks is carrying a sword.
Pretty soon, Arch's whole life is turned upside down by Hendricks's revelation that there's a secret world operating under the one he's been living in his whole life - one filled with demons, chaos, and unspeakable evils, one of which is already in town, stirring trouble. And if the two men don't band together to keep watch on the darkness falling on Midian, then this small town might just get swallowed up by the forces of evil - with the rest of the world to follow shortly behind.

Hugely controversial, you will either love this book or hate it. Some will feel challenged and uncomfortable by the topic it deals with, and others will be drawn into it and unable to put it down... the question is, what will you think?
A young student at Oxford University has an idea for his doctor’s thesis (PhD), which fulfils not only the criteria for ‘originality’, but goes far beyond it. For if Jason Dyke is right, his idea will soon change the world and shift the delicate balance of power from one nation to another.
Jason’s idea is simple: In the genetics laboratory at Oxford University, he will clone Jesus Christ.
But when the CIA finds out about his plan, the President of America realises that if the UK succeeds, the balance of power will shift from the USA to Europe. And he realises that the only way to stop this happening is for America to create its very own clone of Jesus Christ.
The race is on...
Whoever reads this book will never forget it. And they will ask….one of two questions:-
1: Is it really possible?
2: When will it happen?
What people have been saying about this book:-
Awesome Read: ‘I read many books and this one was one of the best I have read. I loved it and think I will read it more than twice. It was the kind of book that was almost impossible to put down. Very glad I bought it and would recommend it to everyone.’
A Thumping Good 'Must' Read!: ‘ ‘Browsing the Kindle store for something to 'unwind' me, I chanced upon this excellent gem of a book. To my mind, the Author mirrors perfectly the Biblical events of Jesus' birth 2000 years ago and the subsequent 'Revelations' predicted for our time. The characters are totally believable, able to deduce and thwart the plans of the Americans and British governments and to hide the true Messiah. A well thought out and researched book by the author, I was totally absorbed in it from start to finish. Believers & non-believers alike will enjoy this thumping good read!!! Far better than the Da Vinci Code by a country mile, I am certainly recommending this to all my many friends.’ ‘
Well Written: ‘I was looking at a different book, Dan Brown Inferno and this title came up on a reviewers comments suggesting it to be worth a read. I have to agree, it is. Loved the idea of cloning Jesus and for me it was written well, had page turning elements to it but I was disappointed when it ended. In a nice way though! It does leave one hanging...’
Totally preposterous, but enthralling! : ‘I just happened on this book while browsing to find things to download to my Kindle. The premise of the book captured my interest so I duly downloaded it. And, I loved it! The story is utter nonsense, let's be honest - recreating Jesus Christ through cloning?! But, it is written in such an engaging manner that I found myself drawn in unwittingly. Mid-read, I actually broke my ankle and I found myself begging my family to bring my Kindle to the hospital so I could continue reading the book! I would recommend this highly to anyone else, with the proviso that they suspend belief and read it for what it is - a truly interesting and captivating piece of fiction!’
Book One of Two Parts: Please note that Book One continues seamlessly into and is concluded in Book Two. Trying Book One is an excellent way to get to know this exciting new author! Alternatively, readers are recommended to purchase the full omnibus edition containing both Book One and Book Two. Readers may now borrow Book Two free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Romantic Comedy and Humorous Mystery Author D. D. Scott is back...this time, with the third book in her new bestselling series co-authored with David Slegg.
What if Santa had a double knee replacement and had to put his BFF Father Time and The Mom Squad's Grams in charge of The Big Red Ride?
For Stuck with Sleigh Bells – think Castle and Beckett, The Good Witch and Maxine in Whoville.
Here’s the scoop, straight from Grams:
And no, I ain’t ringin’ some bell at a Salvation Army pot. Although, I do take part in that each holiday season.
But not today, folks. Not today.
I’m jinglin’ these damn sleigh bells as fast as my scrawny arms can shake ‘em ‘cause word has it that doing so this time of year could have some major ramifications.
I have it on good authority that ringing sleigh bells with gusto can not only ward off bad luck and evil spirits, and trust me, in this family, that’s important stuff. But also, these bells can attract meteorites!
Now, how cool would it be to see Santa Claus comin’ to town ridin’ the big ass tail of a meteorite?!
Okay. Just kidding...sort of. That’s not the reason I’m ringin’ bells. But, for the record, I do think Santa arriving by meteorite would be totally awesome.
And, since I’m gonna be piloting his sleigh this year, I do have a say in its operation. That’s right. You heard it straight from the main elf’s mouth. I, Lucy Weiss, am finally going to be able to check off the top item on my Bucket List, which is to be at the helm of Santa’s sleigh on the most magickal night of all nights. Yes indeed, hold onto your Santa hats! I’m in charge of this year’s Big Red Ride.
Bonus Content Included:
D. D. also treats you to a Sneak Peek at her brand new Christmas book – THE BILLIONAIRES’ CHRISTMAS CLUB - co-authored with Bestselling Amazon Author Theresa Ragan. Think Trading Places meets Tim Allen’s Santa Claus
Included too is an Excerpt from HULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO, D. D.’s first Cozy Cash Mystery Christmas Novella. Think Will and Kate gone-Bond, James Bond, in The Grinch’s Whoville.

David Slegg is a Debut Humorous Mystery Author. He grew up on a cattle farm on the banks of the Wabash River and studied Ag Economics at Purdue. He’s been just about everything under the sun - a waiter, a research technician, a bouncer, a salesman, a mapmaker, a bookseller, an ultra-marathon runner, an AutoCAD drafter, and an editor. In his spare time, he recently earned his MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) from Simmons College in Boston. His friends have been telling him for years that he should write a book. Let’s just say he’s had an unusually high number of improbably unlucky experiences. We’re talking about the sorts of things that you’d find humorous if they were happening to a character in a novel but not so funny if they were happening to you. He’s happy to be inflicting some of these situations on his characters. Hell, it’s probably therapeutic.

The Change: An Action Adventure Romance
Five hundred years in the future, nine out of every ten births are female. Males have been declared ‘protected’ (enslaved) to stop the human race from going extinct, and the only way to get a mate, to have a chance at a family, is to enter the Games. In this post-apocalyptic future, the Network Council makes the rules and these tyrants never play fair. The competition is fierce and even the winner leaves damaged.
“After the apocalypse, there were no jails, no police. We had to do something with the criminals. Letting those killers fight it out for our entertainment achieved two goals at once. The apocalypse was depressing. Fresh blood brightened our day.” –The Network Council, 93AW.
Centuries later, the simple battles have evolved into a biological dystopian nightmare where the contestants are all female and the prizes are enslaved males who have been programed to be perfect, submissive mates. Families are strongly encouraged to sell any sons to the Network in exchange for food and fame. Those who resist are labeled rebels and tracked down by bounty hunters with no mercy.
Candice and Daniel
Daniel is a slave. His family treats him as such.
Candice is a bounty hunter, an employee of the post-apocalyptic government that rules their lives.
Their relationship is forbidden, but not even a biological conspiracy can stop the forbidden romance from growing into an adventure that will lead a nation into their rebel cause.
Torn apart when Daniel is sold, Candice Pruett will keep her promise to bring him home or die trying. Finally of age to enter, she is about to challenge the rulers who force them all to exist in torment. If she wins, she just might create a rebellion that leads to a future where the tyrants no longer exist.
Summary in 20 words or less:
The Change is a dystopian action adventure romance where a nation tries to overthrow the tyrants who rule them.
What can you expect to find in this action adventure romance?
•A biological conspiracy that is causing the human race to go extinct.
•A forbidden romance between an enslaved male and a bounty hunter who will risk everything to bring him home.
•A post apocalyptic government of tyrants with more secrets than the rebels could have ever guessed.
•A complete flip of the male/female roles. After the apocalypse, women took control. Their first action was to enslave the male population, under the guise of protecting the human race.
•A dystopian environment that still reveals the horror of war five centuries later.
