        Pauder ran his hands over his face, a sign his patience strained toward snapping. “Meelo can dig, I suppose that’s something. Don’t know what yar going ta do besides slow me down,” he said to Craze.
“He knows this place too well, he can’t stay,” Needle said. “So I make him your bother. That’s what you Backworlders say, isn’t it? I’m your bother.”
Pauder frowned. “In a big way, sister. I want yar word when I bring back yar weaponry, ya’ll leave here ‘n leave with us all alive.”
     “We will leave,” Needle said, “but I can’t promise the other.”

That's two great space operas for less than two bucks.

One 5 star review says: Different. And different is good. The characters are engaging, fun. This series had my attention right away, the story is odd, but in a good way. Fantasy and science fiction.  

Earth in 2099; a girl stuck in a strange cult; 
some very unusual plants, or are they plants?

5 stars from The (Mis)adventures of a Twenty-Something Year-Old Girl: "You know when you get a book and it's much better than you thought it'd be? Ruby's Fire was one of those. Loved it!"
5 stars from Teen Blurb: "Ruby's Fire is a fantastical journey of mind, body and soul for Ruby and her brother, Thorn."
5 stars from Books for YA: "If I could have my own Red I'd be the happiest person ever!"
"I reach for the velvety sack in my cloak and feel the reassuring give of the Oblivion Powder. It’s diminishing with every dose, and I won’t be able to make more here. I need to ration it carefully. My heart hammering, I flutter into the bathroom, inch open the drawstring and shake a line onto my wrist. I inhale greedily, desperately."

It's a paranormal roller coaster ride with dark twists and heated turns...
I thought it was all good with us. I love him beyond death so it has to be. “At least make me understand why you’d risk this…risk us, to fly off willy nilly!”
Basil rounded on her, his face etched with pain. “Because I didn’t get to say goodbye! Okay? Is that enough? Or not enough? I didn’t get to end things with my parents like you did. No closure. My life got ripped away from me. All because I joked with the devil! A few choice words with the wrong person and I ended up with this!” He slapped his palm against his Harvestor’s mark.

One of the several 4/5 star reviews for They All Fall Down: "Fantastic. Short, action-packed and enough drama to keep the reader to the very end."

(The 13th Floor series, #1)

Heaven will never grant him absolution, and he refuses to return to Hell.

5 stars from Cherie Reich - "THE MARQUIS is so different from the normal paranormal romances I've read. The characters are older, yet the romance is still sweet and passionate. Marc reminds me a lot of Hellboy without the kittens." 

Bitten by Books - "THE MARQUIS gets three and a half tombstones for overcoming two major difficulties of short fiction: character development and exposition. The Marquis plunks us down in the middle of the action and stays there."

   Mae had seen his demonic side. His fiery eyes and inhuman maw. His goddamned ugly mug.

   There’d be no last cup of coffee. No sweet smile or comforting touches.

   He wanted to smash the cars he strode by and throw them through windows. The urge to destroy, to kill, was intoxicating.

   Marc had saved her. For the time being.

A Legend Is Hungry Tonight!

Once Upon a December Nightmare by Cherie Reich

Available on all e-readers for free for a limited time! 

Four friends. One monster. Who will get out alive? 

     “No one will be coming up here.” Cassie laughed, although the sound held no mirth. She put on her gloves. It was already getting cold in the truck. “James said the forestry service checks this road once a week. It could be several days before they make the rounds. The road behind us is blocked, and very few people will come out here during the winter season, as well. I’m going with James. I won’t stay here.”
     “Cassie has a point.” James shrugged. “We don’t know when they’ll check the road, but we don’t all have to go.”
     “Well, I’m staying here.” Denise crossed her arms. Cassie might be a few months older than she was, but it didn’t mean she had to listen to her, and there was no way she was going to walk out there in the dark. Besides, Cassie was being childish with that horror movie nonsense. “There could be wild animals out there and who knows what else.”

5 stars from Christine Rains - "... nail-biting suspense"
5 stars from Aubrie Dionne - "... stark and chilling"
4 stars from Medeia Sharif - "This is one creepy horror novelette."

Polar Night
by Julie Flanders

At noon the sun awakens as rural Dalton highway is painted on the arctic, Alaskan horizon. Silhouetted against the burning haze, a haunted asylum pierces the never-ending sky.

A woman screams.

A silken voice and a powerful grip to the throat persuades her silence. His classic Russian features, not unlike the minted image of Czar Nicolas II, remain frozen in time. “Please do not disappoint me like the others, my darling.”

The doorbell chimes. He releases his hold and caresses her cheek. “Natasha,” escapes his lips as he ascends the creaky wooden stairs. A calm hand opens the door. The glistening snow on the front porch pales against Aleksei’s skin and charming smile.

The callused hand of detective Danny Fitzpatrick flashes a search warrant. His puffy, bloodshot eyes lock onto Aleksei’s ...

The young woman cries out, but only Aleksei hears. They will never find you my dear. This beaten and hung over man does not have a clue.

Hours later, the detective crosses the threshold and shudders as if encased in a block of ice. The sun drops to sleep and an eerie shadow creeps alongside him. He shakes his head.

Aleksei watches from the peephole. You feel my immortal essence ... do you not?  A forceful hand bolts the door. Aleksei probes his elongating eye teeth.

It is time for a new plan ..

Praise for Polar Night
"A great, super fast read. I couldn't put this down.  - Lisa Regan, author of Finding Claire Fletcher and Aberration

"This is a real page-turner. The way the book switched back and forth between the villain, the victim(s) and the heroic cop, kept me always wanting to turn the next page, to read one more chapter, then one more. It takes a riveting plot to get me to do that." - Graeme Ing, author of  Ocean of Dust

How do you get rid of ghosts?
Help solve their murders in the Indigo Eady Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series

A Guilty Ghost Surprised
Book II
By Gwen Gardner

An Angel Among Us

Paranormal happenings at the Eady household are the norm. Recently, things have become downright peculiar. Childish giggles at odd hours of the night lead Indigo Eady to her little cousin, Bryan, a guileless cherub spirit, complete with Spider Man pajamas and a set of faux angel wings. The problem is that Bryan died nearly three years ago in a hit and run that killed him and his mum. The driver was never found.  Now the gang must solve the mystery of his death in order to send him back to heaven.  But where to start when the trail is three years cold?

Indigo Eady

Indigo Eady is not clumsy. At least, that’s what she keeps telling everyone. Can she help that the overactive spirit community of Sabrina Shores causes her psychic abilities to short-circuit? It’s unfortunate that her cute friend Badger is often on the receiving end of her mishaps. At times, she is positively hazardous to his health. Even so, sparks fly in more than one direction.
5 Stars! "Just when you think you have everything figured out, the tale twists around and keeps you guessing until the end...A not-so-average nearly seventeen-year-old girl with powers to see ghosts and retrieve powerful memories. She has boy troubles and ghost problems." Christine Rains, author of the 13th Floor Series.
