Destined to become Queen of Scotland.

Bound by blood to the Celtic gods.

Scotland, 1026—Gruoch, descendant of the line of MacAlpin, should have been born into a life of ease. But fate is fickle. Her father’s untimely death, rumored to have been plotted by King Malcolm, leaves her future uncertain and stained by the prophecy that she will avenge her family line.

Escaping to one of the last strongholds of the old Celtic gods, Gruoch becomes an adept in arcane craft. Her encounters with the otherworld, however, suggest that magic runs stronger in Scotland than she ever imagined.

Haunted by dreams of a raven-haired man she’s never met, Gruoch soon feels her fate is not her own. She is duty-bound to wed a powerful lord, if not the Prince himself; however, she’s not sure she can stop her heart when she meets Banquo, a gallant highlander and druid.

At the age of 30, Tess has had three jobs and three significant relationships with two men and one woman – each lasting three years. Drifting through life, confused about her sexuality, Tess decides to live a life of celibacy and to open up a restaurant devoted to soup. Tess has a talent for making soups with strong medicinal and spiritual qualities – something passed down from her great-great grandmother, a descendant of one of the Salem witches.

In the second week of the restaurant’s opening, an elderly professor of English, Roger Beanstock, comes in at closing time. “Beany,” haunted by his own past has lived a celibate life devoted to his work. He visits the restaurant every Thursday night for the next year to share soup and wine with Tess, which she calls the Year of Soup, before taking his life. Shortly after Beany’s death, Tess meets Jim at the restaurant, a furniture maker with his own reasons for keeping to himself. It is through a series of letters that “Beany” has left for Tess that she learns the truth about the Professor, is able to come to terms with her own sexuality, and discover Jim’s own tragic secret that will change both of their lives.

“The writing style is relatable and likable. It’s a fun and accessible read anytime, especially for spring/summer travels.” -Estella R.

A sixty-something woman with fear of heights and creaky knees decides to spend two months backpacking the High Sierra. What could possibly go wrong?

“What was I thinking? In that moment of madness, I completely forgot that I’m a total wuss, terrified of heights. In my defense, it doesn’t come up much in my city life, although I do need to practice meditative deep breathing on freeway overpasses….”

So swept along by the enthusiasm of her usually very predictable husband, a newly retired engineer, Laurel agrees to leave her overly busy life behind, let go of her worries about her grown children, and spend two months hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. She hopes the shared adventure will bring added intimacy to her odd-couple marriage and that time in nature will support her spiritual growth, or at least help her talk some sense into her rampaging inner critic. Despite paralyzing fear, sickness, injury, and hail, the majestic grandeur of the High Sierra did work some kind of miracle.

Jake Adler grudgingly arrives in the Twin Cities to land a job and hopefully reunite with his estranged wife and kids. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension jumps at the chance to have a Texas Ranger in its ranks, but Jake soon realizes the Bureau has fallen on hard times and is staffed solely with undesirables dumped from other state and local agencies.

After getting tangled up with newly released convicts, a puzzling affair and a secretive family pretending to be Native Americans, Jake gets closer to the murderer than he even realizes.

By infiltrating a heist teeming with potential suspects, Jake fits the pieces of the puzzle together. But just as he identifies the killer, one last under cover role has his mental state unraveling before his eyes.

“Defrocked priest Jimmy Holiday’s narrative voice is a strong blend of insightful, self-deprecating, and sincere.” -Publisher’s Weekly

From Examiner’s Recommended Women in Horror comes THE MARKER CHRONICLES by Danielle DeVor. The First Trilogy contains books 1 – 3. Now, for a limited time, save BIG by buying this special bundle deal at a killer price!


Not All Exorcists are Equal….One is Marked

When defrocked ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday, agrees to help an old friend with his sick daughter, he doesn’t expect the horrors that await him. Blackmoor, his friend’s new residence, rests upon the outskirts of the town of Sorrow’s Point. The mansion’s history of magic, mayhem, and death makes it almost a living thing – a haunted mansion straight out of a Stephen King novel. Jimmy must decide if the young girl, Lucy, is only ill, or if the haunting of the house and her apparent possession are real.

After the house appears to affect him as well with colors of magic dancing before his eyes, rooms warded by a witch, and a ring of power in his voice, Jimmy is met by a transient who tells him he has “the Mark.” Whatever being “marked” means, Jimmy doesn’t care. All he wants to do is help Lucy. But, helping Lucy means performing an exorcism.


Uncovering The Truth…Will Take An Exorcist

Jimmy Holiday, defrocked priest turned exorcist, is trying to get his life in order. With his on-again off-again witchy girlfriend moving in, the spirit of the little girl from his last exorcism hanging around, and a secret organization of exorcists hounding him, Jimmy equals stressed.

When a stranger calls in the middle of the night asking for help with a possession, Jimmy is about to land in a mess of trouble. Especially since the man on the phone claims to have gotten his number from Jimmy’s old mentor. Too bad his mentor has been dead for years.

After a mysterious silver flask arrives at his doorstep, Jimmy is left with two options: either ignore the newest enigma the universe has tossed him, or listen to Lucy and travel to Arizona to solve the mystery before all hell breaks loose…again.


Some things are worse than demons.

Jimmy Holiday, reluctant exorcist, is finally getting the help he needs from the higher-ups. The Order of Markers is sending him to the Vatican’s exorcism school. Now, he’ll receive the training he should have gotten at the beginning. One problem, someone wants to sabotage him.

When his time at the school is cut short, Jimmy receives an interesting new case. It is the assignment that no one wants—a corpse has come back to life. And it isn’t a zombie.

Too bad nothing goes as expected. Armed with his usual bag of tricks, Jimmy thinks everything will eventually be all right. Well, that is until his betrayer turns out to be the person he trusts most.

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

The 2250 Saga is a Dystopian Action-Adventure based in the fictional world of Apex.

Follow Romy over ten years of her life as she tries to survive living as a Citizen in the world of autocratic Prospos and Soren Terrorists.

In this edition, you will find:

Romy [Book I]:

In the year 2250, life in Apex is built on classification systems. The rich Prospo live a lavish life in skyscrapers. Poor Citizens live underground and Soren terrorists are a threat that no one wants to contend with, least of all young, healthy women that are used solely for breeding.

Twenty year old Romy believes she’s done everything right to avoid being put on the Soren auction block. She’s studied hard and attained her robotic certification to secure an enviable job in Prospo City, but when her time comes, instead of the coveted ‘B’ classification, Romy’s status leaves her vulnerable to the Soren terrorists.

Follow Romy as she strives to live the life she’s worked so hard to attain and learns the truth about her name, her past, and her world.

Romy’s Legacy [Book II]:

It is 2255. The tyrants of the past are no more, and Romy’s life is perfect. Her quest to start a new community in the North has begun; food is plentiful; and everyone has ample space to live. All she has to look forward to is exploration and the occasional adventure.

That is, until she encounters the new people and realizes her ideal community is not what she expected. She’s left questioning everything, including the fact that they aren’t merely “backwards travelers” any more than she is merely a Legacy.

Follow Romy as she grapples with her past and the new world, unlocking truths along the way that threaten to dismantle everything.

Romy’s Last Stand [Book III]:

This is what it all comes down to. The big climax. The end. My death.

Her assignment? Help make Liberty the utopia it was meant to be, and it is right on track.

But between assassination attempts, security bots, deals with sworn enemies, and even more secrets than she can handle, she’s convinced she won’t survive the end of the world…

Little did Miztli’s father know when he decided to send his promising youngest son to the Great Capital of the Aztecs in hopes of a better future. A miner from a small village, he believed that, in the big city, the boy might have a chance at developing his talents, becoming a metalworker and not just a simple miner or a peasant like the rest of the family. A glorious future for a simple villager, as shiny as the golden-copper jewelry his son would be producing after learning the intricate trade.

However, the great island capital with its towering pyramids and gushing industrial life was busy with its internal politics, disdainful of foreigners, especially barefoot villagers among those, indifferent to their small aspirations. A civil war was brewing, preying on everyone’s minds, and when the actual trouble erupted Miztli found himself in the heart of it, swept by the powerful surge that cared nothing for his private frustrations with the big city, thrown in with the most unexpected company: from pretty Chantli, the workshop owner’s daughter, to a pair of adventure-seeking noble school pupils Necalli and Axolin, to the wildest kid of them all, Ahuitzotl, the youngest brother of none other than the Emperor himself.

A fun escapade of sneaking into the underground tunnel full of hidden weaponry and other anticipated treasures turned out to be not as harmless as they expected, pitting them against ruthless smugglers and worse, unleashing a series of events none of them could have foreseen or foretold.

Keeping out of trouble just isn’t on Leah Nash’s list of accomplishments. But reporting is—and she has ten years’ experience to prove it. So if she’s such great reporter, why is she back living with her mom in freezing Himmel, Wisconsin instead of covering crime in sunny Miami?

Answer: Good reporter, even better smartass; fired in disgrace. In other words, everybody’s favorite kind of female sleuth: smart with a smart mouth, intensely independent, willing to go where no one else will, and, when you get right down to it, fearless.

Susan Hunter’s somewhat cozy, sometimes hard-boiled, and altogether absorbing small-town mystery gets off to an action-packed and deliciously chilling start as Leah watches city crews try to stop a dead oak adrift on the swollen Himmel River from colliding with a dam. And suddenly finds herself looking at this potential headline: “Dead Nun Floats Into Town.” Because it turns out the oak picked up quite a bit of debris in its journey, including a body.

Small towns being what they are, Leah soon realizes the nun is an acquaintance of hers, someone she’d liked and, much more to the point, someone who worked at the school Leah’s own younger sister attended at the time she died—officially in an accident. Clearly, this death needs to be investigated—Leah’s sure there’s a connection. She’s also sure there’s more to her sister’s death than the police ever uncovered.

Everyone else in town is pretty sure Leah’s out of her mind. When that happens in a small town, you can be pretty sure it’s because a good number of them are involved in a murder and cover-up, at the very least. In this case, the crime conspiracy is huge—far bigger than any story Leah’d cover on a balmy day in Miami.
