The Wedding Season: An Enchanted Bridal Prequel by Samantha Chase

There were three guarantees in Tricia Patterson’s life:
1. Her friendship with Sean Peterson was rock solid
2. She had a career that she absolutely adored
3. This summer was going to be the death of her

With the proverbial “Always a Bridesmaid and Never a Bride” becoming her new mantra, Tricia didn’t know how she was going to survive this year’s round of weddings. Six of them this summer alone! In an attempt to ward off the pity-party, her best friend Sean gives her the perfect solution to help her get through – he’ll pretend to be her boyfriend. While not certain that was going to be of any help, Tricia’s knows it also won’t hurt.

When circumstances beyond Sean’s control keep him from coming home to Tricia’s aid, he sends his brother Ryan in his place. Four years older than his brother and his best friend, Ryan isn’t sure why these weddings are such a big deal. He’s also not sure of what the exact nature is of this relationship between Sean and Tricia. And that’s becoming a big problem because the more time he spends with Tricia, the more he realizes that she’s the one he wants to plan a wedding with.

A Child is Torn (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 1) by Dawn Kopman Whidden whidden

When dependable Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police are dispatched to his home. His ten-year-old son, Brad, is discovered inside, unharmed and seemingly alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the television playing his favorite video game, Super Mario—and he’s covered in blood.

Veteran Police Officer Marty Keal is the first on the scene. With his many years of experience, he thinks he’s seen it all. That is, until he discovers Brad’s not really alone after all. Upstairs in their bedroom lies the brutally bludgeoned and deceased bodies of both his mother and his father. When questioned, Brad confesses to the horrific murders.

When Brad is transferred to a local mental health institution for children, Dr. Hope Rubin is brought in to evaluate and treat the child. A preliminary investigation shows no evidence of any kind of mistreatment in his past. She must determine the disturbing truth: Is Brad telling the truth? Or is he covering for someone else?

Detective Jean Whitely rounds out the investigative team; and she suspects there is much more to the case than what meets the eye. The happily married mother of two is unwavering in her determination to uncover the real truth about Brad. Was he abused? Or is he the product of an evil seed born to kill?

As the layers of truth about Brad are systematically peeled away, you will be compelled to ask yourself, which is the more dominate factor in contributing to who we are—NATURE or NURTURE?

The Girls From Alcyone by Cary Caffrey

Excerpt:

Sigrid stood in the center of what had once been the Academy grounds on Alcyone. Now, all that remained were the burned and collapsed remnants of the school and dormitories. Smoke still wisped up from the blackened piles of lumber and debris. The stench was raw and acrid, threatening to overwhelm her sensors.

“There’s no way Independents did this,” Christian said. “It looks like a whole battalion landed here.”

Frantic, Sigrid scanned the area again, searching desperately for signs of the girls, but nothing turned up in her sensory modes. She tried calling out with her comlink. If they were in range, they’d pick up the signal. But there was still nothing. Not even the orbital satellites showed any sign of the girls, or survivors for that matter. Whoever had done this had been brutal and thorough.

Sigrid knew she would kill them.

Synopsis:

Sigrid and Suko are two girls from the impoverished and crime-infested streets of 24th century Earth. Sold into slavery to save their families from financial ruin, the girls are forced to live out their lives in service to the Kimura Corporation, a prestigious mercenary clan with a lineage stretching back long before the formation of the Federated Corporations.

Known only to Kimura, the two girls share startling secret—a rare genetic structure not found in tens of millions of other girls.

But when their secret becomes known, Sigrid and Suko quickly find themselves at the center of a struggle for power. Now, hunted by men who would seek to control them, Sigrid and Suko are forced to fight for their own survival, and for the freedom of the girls from Alcyone.

Saga of Sages by Ben Grigg

When seventeen year old Bastion finds out that he was born into a race of magical beings called sages, his life gets turned upside down by the fact that he must carry out a long-ago foreseen prophecy and bring an end to the rule of the foul King Kale, a warlord that massacred his entire race with the exception of ten small children fifteen years prior; Now Bastion must locate the other sage children, bring them together and convince them of their destiny and raise an army to bring peace to the land of Sola once more. With the help of a few magical creatures and items of lore by his side, Bastion will have to learn how to master his new ability and learn the history of his people. But will that be enough to right all the wrongs that have been committed in the land of Sola? Bastion soon learns of an even deadlier foe and more dangerous than ever creatures that will stand in his way in order for the prophecy to be fulfilled. With a solid group of ten sage children, each with their own unique “gift” and a group of not so normal mentors, Bastion will have to become the leader he was always destined to be and bring peace to the land of Sola again. The sage children will encounter magic beyond their wildest dreams, but also evil in its purest form. With the story taking place in the last era of magic, the companions will get the chance to meet rare mythical creatures and the last known members of a few surviving races that had long been thought extinct. The idea for “Saga of Sages” came to me in a dream one night. I continued having the recurring dream for some nights before I started writing down notes from what I remembered. Finally I decided to put my story down on paper. I’ve created a Facebook fan page to start building up an audience for my book. With 89,846 words, and 341 pages, I have completed the first book in my storyline. I appreciate you taking the time to have a look at my little story.
