“I wanted you then, I want you now, I want you forever…”

At twenty-eight, Ava Blackwood seems to have the ideal life. Well, at least on the surface. Recently engaged to Seattle’s most loved congressman, Michael Brenner, they are two kids and a yellow Lab short of becoming the picture-perfect family. That is, minus her haunted past and growing dissatisfaction with their relationship.

Ava grows more conflicted when she has a chance encounter with an old flame. One that was never extinguished. Psychiatrist and best-selling author William Debroux is one of the only people who know about Ava’s traumatic upbringing, and has always understood her in a way no one else has. Despite the six years that have passed without seeing one another, her heart soars when she lays eyes on him again. She suddenly finds herself longing for the blossoming romance they shared when she was just a silly college girl at NYU, her mind rushing with memories of when she first wandered into his office as a patient.

Her current situation gets even more strange when she finds out that her fiancé has recently befriended William. As their lives start to become more intertwined and William begins hinting that he intends on winning her back, she begins to ask herself…Is my heart really behind this upcoming marriage? Or was it already stolen in New York all those years ago?

C-Shells is a collection of five short stories all woven together by the common threads of situational psychoses, dark literary imagery, mental anguish, substance abuse and insanity. Descend with the author into the shadowy mired depths of his vividly deranged imagination only if you dare! All first-person narrative vignettes, “Murder by the Bay” is a mushy love story gone horribly afoul but the character intimacy and beautiful San Francisco scenery lend it a classy touch of old-world romanticism. “Transient Vampire” takes a brief peek into one night in the life of an undead protagonist as he seeks out and takes his next meal. “Dead Drunk” is set in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado and puts forth the very bizarre situation of waking up hung over and lying next to a brutally murdered woman, with the narrator being the only apparent witness, the only obvious suspect, no memory at all of the killing, no idea of what to do next, and it only gets worse from there. “Silent Love” was originally written to be a Penthouse Forum letter for submission, but found its way into this collection instead because, erotic though it may be throughout, it is still just as aberrant and twisted as anything else included in the book. “Friday Night, Bloody Night” is also set in Colorado and closes out the volume by describing, through the storyteller’s own eyes, a short-order cook who finally snaps, goes on a murderous rampage through his kitchen and restaurant, then manages to escape the scene and the suburbs into the secluded wilderness of the Rocky Mountains where he then recaps these adventures in essay format. Each of these stories (Shells) fall under the general umbrella of “psychological thriller” which is why, although they were all written separately and in some cases many years apart, they all found their way together into this one bound volume. None of these have ever been published anywhere else, so readers of this book will be getting a genuine original. C-Shells is not for everybody; each and every story presented has some level of adult situations, language, and themes, and none of it is normal, but if you like your literature a little beyond the mainstream and leaning a bit towards the deranged, then this book really was written just for you.


Reeling from a motorcar accident, Captain Brody Neill seeks shelter in a derelict manor house. But the injured Captain is not alone.

Only the mysterious, blind beauty who inhabits the house can save him, but doing so means that reclusive, sheltered Angelica Grey must risk exposing herself to a world of lies, lust, and obsession that she is not prepared for.

This dark & gritty 1920s historical romance contains strong language, sexual assault, and drug addiction. Romance Heat Level: Warm-Hot (4.5 out of 5)

As the island’s residents reel from the news, Thomas turns to his childhood friend, local lawyer Nora Linde. Together, they attempt to unravel the riddles left behind by these two mysterious outsiders—while trying to make sense of the difficult twists their own lives have taken since the shared summer days of their youth.

Inside was a short film he had written and directed in college, extra clothes, a laptop and two full length screenplays he had also written. After being on the streets, he found his way into Sunset Gower Studios, where he lived inside the movie lot for the next few months. During his time inside Sunset Gower Studios, he got an audition for a commercial and set his screenplay on the desk of a production company.

Engaging the Hearts and Minds of Children for the Kingdom of God

The Big Takeaway for your Child: It is important to pick your friends wisely and serve the Lord with all of your heart; then you will grow up to be a godly person and experience God’s love in your life.

The Storyline: Josiah was only 8 years old when he became the king of Judah, a nation that was living in complete disobedience to God. How could such a young child rule a kingdom, let alone one like that?

As the story unfolds, King Josiah seeks the Lord.

He then learns of the imminent doom of his kingdom because they have turned away from God to worship idols made with their own hands.

What will King Josiah do and will there be any hope for his kingdom?


A legion of ancient evil trapped one man, exiling him to tombs of darkness and shame. His days and nights were consumed by a never ending torture, one that he tried in vain to silence through self-mutilation. The outcast known for centuries as The Maniac was forsaken by an entire nation, including the ones he loved the most. He lived in hopeless despair, sorrow that nearly pulled him into the edges of eternity until the day that The Nazarene arrived on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, bringing redemption with him.

The chains were broken. His sanity was restored. His scars of guilt and shame were covered, and he at last found rest in the salvation offered only through the man called Christ. But what happened when Jesus and his disciples left? What became of the man that was told simply: “Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee?”

What difficulties did this once possessed man face as he made the lonely walk back into the village, absent from the presence of his Savior? How many shunned him? Was he mocked? Chased away by the very people that once called him brother, son, friend? This speculative look into the journey taken by a man set free from the bondage of sin walks the line between fear and faith, exploring the depths of man’s depravity and God’s forgiveness. Who, or what, will conquer in the end?


The tantalizing paranormal romance that launched a fictional world.

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he’s hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

Now he and Beatrice De Novo follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, though the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation hundreds of years in the making.

History and the paranormal collide in A Hidden Fire, the first book in the bestselling Elemental Mysteries series and semifinalist in the Kindle Book Review’s Best Indie Books of 2012.

Alexis talks about growing up in Lexington, SC. She belongs to some strange cult, in which her family members are the only devotees: her mother, her father, and her brother.
She hates them all.
Whenever she brings up the house they share, I see her contempt. She wants to get away from it.
I want to help her, whether I’m retired or not. I’ve helped others escape from cults in the past. Why can’t I do the same now?
The house. I can’t get it out of my mind. The horrors she told me about it. So many details, and yet so much mystery.
I must see the house for myself. That is the only way that I can save her.”

The last thing Alexa needs is another talk-show worthy drama in her already complicated life, no matter how well Casey kisses.

About the Author:

I’ve always had a fascination with vampires. My ideal man evolved from tall, dark, and sexy to tall, dark, and sexy with fangs. And so my fantasy was born.

My first release is Taken: The Vampire’s Concubine (Part One). If you like a safe and neat series, this is not for you. Taken is very dark in nature, with strong sexual themes, dangerous situations, and Gothic undertones throughout it. When you open the pages to my series, you’re stepping into a world ruled by beings that survive on blood. There’s nothing safe about that.

The year is 2050, and Keely has just been abducted from her home in small-town USA. Blindfolded and bound, she is taken into outer space and delivered into a world with three moons and no sun. Almost immediately, she discovers her fate. Due to a rare blood factor she’s been taken and now she’s expected to select a male vampire mate and breed.

The attraction between her and her guard is instantaneous, but where can it lead? Now a concubine, Keely is taken for her grooming. The market is quickly approaching, her future dark and uncertain. She’s destined to be a vampire’s concubine, but which one will she pick?

For Emily Baxter, life is simple. Her world is made up completely of school, church, and the community in the small farming town she calls home. All that changes one fateful Sunday, when a new girl shows up at Pleasanton Baptist—a girl unlike anyone Emily has ever seen. A girl with long red hair, crystal green eyes, and style and posture like royalty.

A girl named October.

The months that follow are filled with magic—the magic of ordinary things, of finding pictures in the stars, of imagination and a new sense of beauty. But as time goes by, Emily begins to sense that her enchanting new friend may have secrets that could break the spell. Is October really all she seems to be?


An alien spacecraft arrives in Earth orbit in the year CE 457 and blankets the globe with data collectors. In Briton, Angle chieftain Icel, his daughter Elfleda and their band of warriors see a shooting star strike a grove of trees. Racing to “the steorra,” they find themselves facing their twins.

A teenage girl awakens in a Chicago alley, dressed in the clothes of a street person. She has no memory of how she got there or even who she is. Somehow, though, she is sure of two things. She is not homeless and her mother is in grave danger. As she searches for her identity, she discovers she has special abilities. She also realizes she’s being followed.

Christopher, the story’s narrator, moves to Canon City, Colorado, in the sixth grade. Up until now, his life has not gone well. He is blind in one eye and still recovering from rheumatic fever. Though smart, he is a poor student. He is also somewhat of a loner, a result of having moved every two or three years of his life. In Canon, Chris befriends Lance, a Tom Sawyer-like boy with none of Chris’s failings and an unerring ability to get into trouble.

In a series of interwoven chapters filled with murder, conquest, disaster, trickery and adventure, the characters find themselves thrown together and pitted against one another. In the end, they will face the ultimate test of their principles and their courage–with millions of lives hanging in the balance.


The first king is a tyrant. The second king doesn’t have long to live. The third king is way out of his depth. And Merlin rules them all… These are the REAL legends of King Arthur, brought to life for present-day readers.

The Sons of Constance fled Britain when tyrant King Vortiger killed their father and claimed the throne. Now they have returned, and must defeat Vortiger and his Saxon ally Hengist to reclaim their birthright and win Britain back. Merlin serves them all, but none of them are sure whether he is ensuring their success—or whether they are simply pawns in his plan to bend the country to his will.

You do not need to read Book 1 of The Swithen to start with this one, as it begins a new storyline, one that finds the adult Merlin stepping into his familiar role as advisor to kings. One king is a tyrant whose future is foretold in an epic battle between two angry dragons. Another king falls prey to a conspirator in the court and learns the danger of deceiving Merlin, for which the consequences are devastating—and deadly. It all culminates in a massive battle—presaged by a dragon of fire in the sky—that will decide the fate of the fledgling country.

This is the second book in the series that retells the original legends of King Arthur, laid down between 1100-1500AD, in new retellings that bring the characters and emotions to life for the present day. The Sons of Constance alternates between the intimate and the epic, vividly describing the battles and combat that transform the country, and also the psychology that shows how the events transform the characters. Magic comes to the fore in this novel, which features several supernatural events, and a dark tale straight out of the Twilight Zone, as we are there for the massive events that transform Britain—and set the stage for the birth of Arthur.


All Jon ever wanted was to be normal, but the grisly murder of his parents when he was just a child left something terrible brewing inside of him. Jon was a killer, a fact he’d long accepted as he now lives on the streets, looking for a place he belongs in this world.

On a night that seems like fate, while on a train heading west, a stranger intervenes as Jon is on the verge of his most recent crime. His name is Professor James Conrad, and he asks Jon to come live with him and a group of young serial killers he has taken under his wing.

The world taught her that sex has rules. HE teaches her to ask why…

Damian Bryant has it all – intelligence, charm, a flare for fun, and a highly successful self-run graphic design business. Katalina Avery – an ambitious, fiercely independent graduate student – knows it’s wrong to date him the second she meets him on a Philadelphia bus.

At heart Katalina is a “good” girl, molded by her conservative rural upbringing, and has never considered venturing beyond the safety of her humdrum relationships. But there’s something about Damian’s authoritative ways and strange delight in being called “sir” that tempts her to break what she believes are unbreakable rules. While she wants nothing more than to spend her time exploring the city with this incredibly sexy man, she’s also tortured by the question of how a modern woman could fall for a someone as controlling and sexually aggressive as Damian.

Bombarded with the opinions of seemingly everyone she knows (and doesn’t know) on what sex and relationships should be, Katalina is tormented by growing guilt about her newfound submissive and – dare she admit – kinky inclinations, until it threatens to destroy everything she and Damian have. It’s then that Katalina must consider whether “right” and “wrong” might be blurry concepts that every couple, including her and Damian, must define for themselves; if she doesn’t, she’ll risk losing the greatest love she’s ever known.

PLEASE NOTE: This novel is published in two parts (think of the end of part 1 as an intermission, rather than a cliff hanger), and contains light BDSM.

How do you fight against fate? You don’t. You can’t. You can only surrender to fate in Jacelyn Rye’s new release!

Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.

Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.
Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it’s with another.

But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.
Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?

This is book one of the New Adult Romance Series: Fate’s Path.

Would You Like to Know Jesus as Those Closest to Him Did?

Son of Man is an honest-to-Bible account of Jesus and the world he lived in. Two things make this biography unique:

First, it arranges the Gospels chronologically to help the reader see how, and maybe more importantly, why things unfolded as they did.

Second, it tells Jesus’s story in the context of his culture. The geography, climate, politics, racism, social norms, religion, traditions, economics, morality, language, and customs of the second temple era play key roles in this narrative. What emerges is a holistic, historically accurate dramatization that provides a 360-degree view of Jesus and his world.

No fictionalized elements or dialog have been added. All events and quotations are taken from the texts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts. All of Jesus’s recorded words and actions are included, and duplicate accounts have been harmonized.

Recent books about the life of Christ have been skeptical of the Bible and have used Jewish and Roman texts as their primary sources. Religious and secular history books provide valuable insights into Jesus’s world, but to understand the man himself, the best sources are the ancient narratives written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

An appendix is included to help Bible students study Jesus’s ministry years chronologically, pericope by pericope. For deeper research, Old Testament passages that are relevant to each event are cited.

If you are a student of Jesus’s life and times, or a follower of Jesus and his teachings, you will find yourself looking at Jesus with new eyes and new understanding. And you will gain a greater appreciation for what it must have taken for Jesus to do what he did: embody the Son of God in the Son of Man.

But will Hartley set aside his trophy girl to love someone as broken as Corey? If he won’t, she will need to find the courage to make a life for herself at Harkness — one which does not revolve around the sport she can no longer play, or the brown-eyed boy who’s afraid to love her back.

1. No dating or going out on dates.

3. Never pick up a guy in a particular social setting that I may frequently attend. Or, never sleep with a man whom I have the chance of running into on a regular basis.

What if You Could Change Your Life in 21 Days?

Are you ready to create a miraculous life?

I hope you answered yes!

I hope you know you deserve it!

A short video: https://youtu.be/VGz6MVroyC0

Not that long ago, I was at a crossroads. I could choose to slink away with a feeling of defeat or do something different. What did I have to lose? I was already losing myself and my joy so I decided to try something out, giving myself twenty-one days to see if it worked.

The long story made short is that it did work, and continues to work. I am amazed on a daily basis and so continually expect to see the miraculous show up in big and small ways.

Can you imagine what your life would feel like if you were open to the power of possibility?

Whether you are seeking peace, joy, better relationships, or more abundance – it begins with you being open to receiving more of those things in your life. Being open doesn’t necessarily come naturally to everyone. Being able to receive doesn’t come naturally to many people either. The ability to receive as well as give requires practice.

The Creating Miracles program will help you focus your attention and begin shifting how you perceive what is possible as well as your awareness of what you are creating.

In the first week of the pilot study, participants were already experiencing mini miracles and becoming more aware of what they were attracting into their lives.

*For example, one person was tired and needed a break from work. She recognized the same fatigue in her co-workers. She used one of the questions in the program and within an hour operations shut down – for a total of four to five hours, giving everyone the much needed break!

*Another participant found extra cash in her wallet unexpectedly.

*Another had the chance to attend part of a speaker’s training for free!

*I personally have created opportunities to showcase my work as a writer, poet, and vocalist.

As cool as those little miracles are, the most exciting change was in the people who experienced them. They were recognizing what was happening in their lives and calling more in. They were becoming more aware of Spirit at work and becoming open to the possibility.

**What might your experience be?

**What would it take for you to change your life?

**What if you could begin today and in as little as twenty-one days be living a new experience?

**What would be possible if you gave yourself the chance you deserve?

What if you were willing to find out?

You Can!


Creator and Coach of Creating Miracles

Saoirse Callahan’s family is broken. Hunger forced them out of Ireland and they still struggle to survive in their new home, where scorching Texas droughts threaten their small farm. Then, on one blazing Sunday afternoon, a series of mysterious fires devastates the region. Whispered rumors of a slave rebellion soon flame into a statewide panic. Vigilantes scour the countryside for arsonists, targeting foreigners and slaves in a bloodthirsty witch-hunt. Saoirse is determined to find out how the fires really started, but the more questions she asks, the more she puts her family and friends in danger. And the truth may be more than she can handle.

Meanwhile, safe in Pennsylvania, Westleigh Kavanagh can call himself an abolitionist with little fear. But when he realizes his father’s new boarder is actually a runaway slave, he must keep the wanted man’s identity a secret. Because Westleigh’s father is the sheriff, and bound by law to help capture fugitives, whether he believes in slavery or not. Westleigh wants to protect his father from the truth, but the longer he lies, the greater chance they will all be caught. Then Westleigh makes his own discovery—an old forbidden journal that holds secrets of his father’s past. Secrets that lead to the Callahans. Secrets that, if unraveled, could destroy both families.

In order to make the nightmare stop, Vienna Rossi, realizes she must take matters into her own hands. She’s compelled by an unseen force to hop on a last minute flight to track down a murderer.

Awakened within her is a psychic gift she never knew she had, a handsome spirit guide who drives her nuts, and the ability to help lost souls crossover to the other side.

Not-quite-sixteen year old Lizbet Moore expects a boring last month of summer vacation — and she gets what she’s expecting until a fifteen hundred year old Fae named Eamon shows up in her backyard disguised as a down-on-his-luck garden gnome. When Eamon slips an ancient amulet around her neck, the memories of Lizbet’s many past lives, including her first life as Morgan Le Fae, come slamming back to her to change her summer plans in a way she could never have expected.

Forced to go on the run when murderous monks show up at the back door, Lizbet hops a plane to Scotland accompanied by Eamon, the whispering voices of her past lives, and geekily cute James, the college boy from next door. Not only does she have to dodge the monks, but she’s racing against time and greedy land developers to prevent the entire race of the Fae from being destroyed.

The only thing Lizbet knows for sure is that if she fails and can’t produce a few live fairies at the end of her journey, she is going to be grounded for life…and probably for her next life, too.
