In the tradition of “City of Ember” "Chronicles of Narnia" and "A Wrinkle in Time", this family adventure is a high stakes space race to save our world from an invading force before it is too late.

-Book 3-

Will Ian’s quest to find his destiny away from Jupiter lead to Earth's untimely demise?

As he struggles with his identity, Ian Castillo helps one of Earth’s greatest scientific minds, Dr. Nikola Tesla, make the scientific discovery of a lifetime: a strange mineral that can perhaps power our world for years to come! They discover it is not just an energy source, but something much more! When the device powered by the mineral is activated, it awakens a sleeping giant buried under the Earth by the Martians generations before. The beast known as “Gigantes” leaves behind a trail of destruction and calls out to a deadly enemy headed for Earth.

And the secret inside the mineral will change everything for Earth and the entire Jovian Realm…forever.

FIND YOUR DESTINY.

Cover by Eve Milady and Ben Fosselman with Magnetic Dreams Animation Studios (Iron Man:Extremis, Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers, Sesame Street)

Single
Rider
by
Skye Leah Collett
Genre:
Contemporary Women's Fiction

This
is a story about a woman named Kenzie. A woman who knows what she
wants and likes things just the way they are, thank you very
much. 


This
is also a story about a man named Max. Max can be a real pain in the
ass. 


And
finally, this is a story about Dash, ex-husband extraordinaire, who
likes to get down to the Scissor Sisters and parties a little too
much. 
And
Katie, the best friend who parties far too much and can expertly
defend herself against sexual harassment accusations. 
And
Claudia, sister, mother and head of the school parent’s
association, long time tea drinker. The chalk to Kenzie’s
cheese. 
And
Michael, the one that got away. 





(The
one in the hat!)

First
time author of Single Rider

Skye
Leah Collett,

refuses to concede that her debut novel is in any
way
Autobiographical.
Her
ex
-husband
doesn't
buy it.
He
won’t shut up about the

similarities between himself and the vibrantly likeable
supporting
character Dash. Unrelenting in his co
nviction
that the imagined fellows resemblance is as unsubtle as the nose on
his handsome face, he’s adamantly staked a claim in sharing any
perceived future celebrity entitlements. H
e
is also one of this
author's
biggest fans.

Sydney born but a devoted Brisbane
girl for almost three decades
,
Skye’s

stories centre on the

lives

and relationships of
individuals
living in
modern
suburban
Australia. Their friendships, their
increasingly
overbearing families and of course their lovers.

Her
father's
dedication

to
waffling,
unapologetically

long winded stories is a treasured family trait passed on through
generations and
Skye’s
rich,

colourful characters are painstakingly crafted to become people you
wished you knew and
become
reluctant to farewell.
Skye
spends a
n
unseemly indulgent

amount of time pinching herself as a reminder that she is indeed
awake
and
very much a person who finished writing a novel.

She’d
adore hearing from anyone who feels inclined to make the effort or
just wants to say hey
.

An Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody by D. L. Gardner #Paranormal #Humor


An
Unconventional Mr. Peadlebody
by
D.L. Gardner
Genre:
Paranormal Humor 

Rockford
Peadlebody dies in a train wreck while traveling with his family, (a
rather dysfunctional lot of half-blood vampires) after a flood in
Mississippi washes their home away. Once his brother Gerald, his wife
Ginger, and son Raymond reach grandpa's estate in Ohio, they are
surprised by the news that grandaddy Benjamin Peadlebody has also
died. They are now heirs to the infamous Peadlebody manor and all its
peculiarities, including the butler, a reserved, tattooed, muscle-man
named Richard Cottlebone, 





It
seems fishy to Gerald that two untimely deaths in the family happened
within a week. Yes, Rockford's demise was of his own doing, but
Benjamin's? Perhaps the butler, knows more than he's letting on?

To
prove himself worthy, since he failed to live up to old Benjamin's
standards when he was alive, Gerald goes about to unravel the thread
of Papa's death. No help comes from Ginger. She's too busy trying to
un-vampire herself. And Raymond is in love, but not with his
relatives. Gerald soon discovers solving a murder mystery meets with
a stone cold reception.








With
a passion for a good wholesome story, Gardner dives into the adult
and young adult fantasy genres. She is both a best selling author and
an award winning illustrator who lives in the Pacific Northwest, USA.
Dabbling in screenwriting, she's won screenings and a trophy for some
of her film projects. 





She
loves a tale that ignites imaginations, strengthens friendships,
spurs courage and applauds honor. Though she targets her stories for
young adults, her books are enjoyed by all ages.

Harper's Place
Harper Grey is fed up with over-bearing men. Her father wants to sell the family hamburger joint to her brother because a woman could never make it successful.
Harper knows she has the same flair for business as her mother, and sexy Navy SEAL Patrick O'Brien dares her to prove it to the world.

Fun, flirty, and absolutely endearing!
I'm a sucker for stories where the protagonist follows their dream even when it seems unlikely they'll succeed. Throw in a sexy SEAL? YES. I'm in.
- M J C, Amazon Reviewer
Fun, flirty, and absolutely endearing!
This is a short read that you'll want to be longer by the time you've finished. I was so engrossed that I couldn't put it down.

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Harper's Place. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
"How would you bring in new business, though?"
I'm amazed that he seems to find our conversation interesting. He's an audience willing to listen and I've not had that in a long time. Damn this crush of mine. It won't be easy to tame after tonight.
"New menu items, specials, things like that. Start serving dessert, like pies. Easy cook items. With the new burgers I've created and a new d├ęcor, I'd open in the summer when the air is fresh and everyone is happy to be out of the snow, hungry for grilled food. I think we could do fine."
"What's your hold up?"
"Tony, Dad. It's complicated." I shrug. His arm feels good, and I have the overwhelming urge to nuzzle against it. "Did you kiss Amy Parker when you were twelve? She still brags about it." Did I just ask him about kissing? What is wrong with me? Will this mouth of mine never shut up? Stop it, Stop it, stop it!
"That I did, in a closet over at Robert Anderson's house."
"Ew."
"I was twelve and desperate. You can't blame me. I do blame that stupid soda bottle. And your first kiss?" There is a challenge in his voice.
"Kevin Monroe at the Klines Movie Theater. He sent me a six-page note the next day about how much he loved me, and I freaked out and dumped him."
"Any regrets?"
I choke back a giggle. "Naw, ‘cept I remember I liked his cologne. It could have been aftershave, but it was nice." It's not half as nice as the Aramis that Patrick has on. Something about it sends a shiver up my spine that has nothing to do with the zombie waiting in Dad's office.
"The dark isn't so bad, now is it?"
"I guess not."
Silence surrounds us. The fear that enveloped me seems to disappear.
"Are you seeing anyone?"
"No." It sounds terrible now that I've said it out loud. Like I'm admitting to being a desperate and dateless leper.
"So," he drawls out, "ever thought of dating a military guy?" He squeezes my fingers.
Is he serious?
His fingertip smooths over the rough callouses I've gained from years of hard work. Suddenly my wasted evening of not going out to celebrate is starting to look better. "I think it would depend on which military guy."
"You're killing me. You know that, don't you?" His strangled tone only sets off a case of the giggles.
"Are you asking me out, Patrick?"
"Trying to, but you're not making it easy." The challenge is back in his voice.
"I wouldn't mind a date or two," I manage to squeak out. Breathe, Harper, just breathe, calmly through your nose, out your mouth. Sainted Mother of God, Patrick asked me out! I hit the jackpot! Now all I have to do is not hit him.

The Wandering God - The Watcher: Book 3 by Joshua Pantalleresco #Fantasy



Greater Worlds than These



Following the events of Stormdancer, The Watcher receives a vision in a dream of a city in turmoil. The dream haunts him, as does the voice that insistently repeats, 'Help me,' night after night. Leaving the safety of the tower of scientists behind, the Watcher and his friends embark on their final journey to locate the source of the message and come face to face with their most difficult obstacle yet: doubt.

Though they trust the Watcher, Kristen and the others can't help but fear that the voice in his head is driving him mad and leading them all to their deaths. Even the Watcher is afraid. He knows that listening to this voice risks everything he has obtained up until this point, but he can't help but continue to follow it, driven forward by curiosity and an  instinctive need.



Beyond volcanoes, rock people, and deserts of nothing but crystal, lies the City at the End of the World. And there, the Wandering God awaits...



Tags: Young Adult, Poetry, Epic, Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Dragons



Kindle version of the book is 161 pgs. long.

Praise for The Wandering God:



“I can say with no hyperbole that The Watcher by Joshua Pantalleresco is, truly, an epic epic.” ~Dirk Manning, author of Tales of Mr. Rhee and Nightmare World



"Joshua Pantalleresco paints a stunning and vivid world through poetry and takes the reader on an adventure that is well worth a read." ~Christine Steendam, award-winning author of the Ocean series and Foremost chronicles


Read an Excerpt:

now I stand in this space in the dream 
I know this cannot be real 
watching this whole story play in my head 
feeling the presence of someone 
something 
watching with me 

"Help me." 

I know the voice when I hear it 
it beckons me to another place 

the vision shifts to a city 
like the one I saw at the beginning 
it still stands 
surrounded by barrenness 
it thrives in spite of the growing emptiness around it 
vibrant defiance in an empty world 
those same structures I saw in the dream remain 
pointing up at the heavens 
daring the Wandering God to find them 

somehow I know 
that voice will be there 
waiting 

"Help me." 

I wake up 
gasping back to life from slumber 
happy to confirm it was only a dream 

I look around at the others 
sound asleep 
at peace 
dreaming their tranquil dreams 

I am thankful they came for me 
it is nice to know that in this empty place 
you are not alone 

I am glad to be with my family 
I wouldn't trade them for anything 
I close my eyes again I am not alone
