Hazelita and the Magic Broom by Hope Finning

Hazelita is a lonely old woman. Poor and alone, her only possession of value is a magic broom that she inherited from her mother. By sweeping with the magic broom, Hazelita is able to make the wishes of others come true, but her own wish, of a life without loneliness, is beyond her grasp. If she is to find happiness, it will take the kindness of a stranger and a very special wish. The story has a magical ending that comes, not from the powers of the magic broom, but from the magic that can be found in all of us.

BOOK ONE INSIGHT SERIES

Willow Haywood has always been trapped between the worlds of the Light and the Dark. Her waking hours are plagued by her ability to feel the emotions of those around her. No matter how inward she draws, she cannot shut out the feelings of others. Sometimes she will see images – echoes of other people and places – that she can enter to influence the emotions of people she has never met.

By night, Willow experiences her only escape from this terrible insight – entering into the world of dreams. Most of these dreams are shared in blissful silence with a stunning blue-eyed boy. But every new moon she lives through something much darker: a horrific nightmare shared by another mysterious boy who is always shrouded by shadows.

One night, this shadowy figure invades her dreams outside of his appointed time. In this new nightmare, Willow is marked; a mark which follows her into the waking world and sets her on a momentous path through light and darkness, through fragmented myth and half-truths, through past lives and disturbing family secrets, all in the face of the ever-dominant Zodiac. What she finds will endanger the lives of those closest to her and will force her to make a decision that will change her world forever.

Blast of the Dragon’s Fury: A Fun Dragon Epic Fantasy Book with Dragons (Andy Smithson 1) by L. R. W. Lee

Praise for Andy Smithson: Blast of the Dragon’s Fury (Book One) “I LOVED it! Totally hooked and want to hear more. When’s the sequel coming out?” – Book Reviewer “As far as Andy Smithson knows, he is a more-or-less ordinary 10-year-old boy, neglected by his overachieving parents and annoyed by his pampered older sister. What he doesn’t know is that he is also the latest in a line of rulers of the land of Oomaldee and the one destined to save that kingdom from a curse put on it 500 years before Andy’s birth. Andy is magically pulled into Oomaldee while washing dishes one evening, and the adventure begins–an adventure that includes fire-breathing dragons, a lisping wizard, flying horses, people-eating giants, and many new and delightful friends. The story has plenty of exciting moments and a great deal of humor, from fart jokes and silly wordplay to more subtle humor that should appeal to adult readers. Delightful characters, exciting moments, and plenty of cool extras.” – SP Reviews “The humor is visible and the book has many clever touches. The characters are believable… in this multi-layered story. A well-thought-through plot and vivid characters and situations.” – Editor, A Woman’s Write “What a wonderful read, it grabbed me from the first lines, and lively writing and dialogue kept me there!” – Author, The Sword of DemelzaThe Andy Smithson allegorical, fantasy adventure series includes:Blast of the Dragon’s Fury, Book OneVenom of the Serpent’s Cunning, Book Two – Now availableDisgrace of the Unicorn’s Honor, Book Three – Coming Fall 2014Yet unnamed books four to seven

Rise of the Olympians by Belle Ward

“A swicked adventure that will leave you smiling and wanting more.” -HM Ward, New York Times Bestselling Author

There are no minor gods.

Lilah Jones is officially thirteen. Unfortunately, the day comes with a few twists she didn’t expect. For example, her hair turned into a living rainbow and she was gifted with a golden necklace that randomly goes from being room temperature to as hot a supernova. On top of that, she has a dream that she remembers line by the line when she wakes up.

Seeking answers, Lilah meets two boys, named Cole and Adrian, who gladly clear things up. Remember the Greek myths you assumed were fiction? The old gods that you assumed were just someone’s imagination? You were wrong. They’ve been with us the whole time, fighting battles we didn’t even know existed, and they’ve returned. The Olympians are reuniting, preparing to fight the most dangerous battle they’ve ever faced.

The Father of Monsters is rising.
