Supernova release

Today, as part of the release of Supernova, I've been asked to share my superhero alter ego. Now, normally that's the kind of thing one should keep under lock and key, but since Elizabeth asked so nicely, I've decided to share my secret identity.

My superhero identity would be...Adaptor! (no, I did not misspell that, it was intentional).
See, I thought about being invisible and how awesome that would be, but then you run into the problem of people running into you, or dropping things on you, or when someone shuts the door on you because they don't realize you are behind them.

So instead...I adapt, to every situation and can blend in with any crowd. No matter where something is happening, I am there, and you would never even know it.

One important part of being an Adaptor is being able to change my physical appearance at will. Whether it be jeans and a t-shirt, a business suit, or thigh-high black boots, not only will you not notice me (until I take you down, so criminals beware!) but you also won't remember me afterwords (which can be a bummer, because it's very hard to get recognized for all of your good deeds when people don't remember you).

Want more superheroes? Ones with a bit more of a story? Then be sure to check out Supernova, the newest release from Elizabeth Sharp!

On Cleo’s first day at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Academy, things get pretty weird pretty fast. After being confronted by a strangely hostile boy, she meets two girls and instantly bonds with them. Before long danger threatens the entire student body, in the form of a soul eating possessor fae. When her brother is savagely beaten and left coma, the girls decide to use their fae powers to become superheroes and the possessions.

They quickly learn things are a lot more complicated than they had ever imagined. A government plot that had begun when they were infants endangers them all, and a demented former soldier bent on revenge is after them. The line between friend and foe has become so blurry, Cleo has no idea who she can trust. Will their superhero plot help them save the day, or just get them killed?

Mythology:The Wicked excerpt

“Right now I need you to measure souls like a guardian.”
I’ve done it lots of times before. It was one of the first things that Jonathan taught me to do after I transformed, and it has always come relatively easily to me.
Glad to give my attention to something else, I concentrate until I feel crackly dry heat right behind my eyes. Jonathan once told me that every guardian perceives a soul’s state a little differently; the way I see it is in the whites of someone’s eyes. Through experimentation and comparison, we determined that white means a healthy or “intact” soul while damage to me looks like jaundice of varying degrees.
Jonathan clears his throat, and when I look over at him, he makes a gesture with his hand. Like he’s waving me out there.
“What?” I say, my eyes widening.
 “Pick one of them to save and cast your protection.”
My glance sweeps through the mourners again before coming to rest back on Jonathan. “You’re serious?”
“Perfectly,” he says patiently. “Choose one.”
He rests his elbows on his knees and looks down at his clasped hands. Apparently, today’s lesson starts now.

I get up and move away from him, weaving through the people who are mingling in the reception area and some who have already migrated into the chapel. He wants me to “choose one,” huh?

Mythology: The Wicked Release!

A demon with a pure heart, Micah Condie lives his life by a code of ethics, but breaking that code may be the only way for him to survive. A supernatural entity in her own right, Hope Gentry would do anything in her power to protect her loved ones, but she may be the one who puts them in peril.

When the Demon Impiorum challenges the laws that keep guardians and demons in balance, ancient enforcers of justice intervene. Micah, Hope, and their mentor Jonathan become entangled in a conspiracy that will test even the deepest love and trust.

Beyond Fate - Heather Lyons

It's here! BEYOND FATE by Heather Lyons is here and we are thrilled to get to be a part of the release day launch! We finally get to hear from Jonah in this novella from The Fate Series. Check out what we have going on today as we celebrate the release of this outstanding novella, and there's an excerpt for you! Then look below for all the information regarding the book and Heather Lyons. You can also enter in a giveaway below! Check it all out and be sure to let us know what you are looking forward to when it comes to BEYOND FATE and The Fate Series!


There are always two sides to every story . . .

His whole life, Jonah Whitecomb has strove to meet everyone’s expectations of him: the perfect student, dutiful son, loyal twin, accomplished surfer, and powerful Magical. But behind his carefully composed façade hides the truth of how his family has fallen apart, leaving Jonah more often than not feeling adrift. To complicate matters, he fell in love long ago with a girl in his dreams, one he’s never told anyone about, including his twin brother.

Just when life seems its bleakest, Jonah discovers that Chloe is real. Wanting to finally reach out and grab happiness for himself, he embarks on a journey to track down the girl of his dreams, only to find that happy endings aren’t always guaranteed, the best laid out plans can go horribly awry, and sometimes, you have to simply let yourself go along for the ride.

* Beyond Fate is Jonah’s point-of-view of the events of A Matter of Fate, and is a companion novella.

Release Day Excerpt:

She must sense my disinterest, because she rushes to say, “And your Connection is nice and strong. You’re very lucky to have been able to foster that relationship from such an early age.”
                Whoa. What now? Connection? “Do you mean the one with my brother?”
                I have a Connection with my brother, thanks to being Magical identical twins and all. But it’s not like a real Connection, not like the kind my parents had or Joey and Hannah’s. Not a romantic one, anyway.
                “Oh, well, yes, there’s that Connection too.” The Seer nods, biting the end of her pen. Then she yanks it back out, irrational embarrassment taking over once more. “I guess I overlooked that one, since I’ve never seen one between siblings before. No—I meant your Connection.”
                My brain sort of goes static-y. “I guess I’m confused here. If you’re not referring to Kellan, then what . . . uh . . . Connection are you talking about?”
                She looks down at the yellow legal pad, as if it somehow has answers. “Surely you know about your Connection? I mean, you’ve already been on that road with her, and have been since you were very young.”
                My heart starts racing, like it does when I run. But I’m not running. I’m sitting in a yellow chair in a Seer’s office and I’m dizzy and my heart is racing and I’m having a tough time catching my breath. “Elaborate,” I squeak. And it goes to show just how thrown off balance I really am, because I don’t even even care that I’m squeaking like a twelve-year-old going through puberty to some pretty girl.
                The Seer’s eyes widen. “Has no one explained this to you?”
                I clear my throat once, twice. “I know that my brother and I have a Connection, but I wasn’t aware I had another one. Nobody . . .” I’m forced to clear it a third time. “Nobody has two Connections.”
                “Well, uh . . . it’s true that I’m not aware of anyone else having two, but . . .” She blinks at me, scratches her head. “You do. You’re in love with her already, right?”
How could she know that? Can Seers tell that? Can they actually sense emotions, like I can? Can they physically tell that someone is in love, simply by looking at their paths? Because, if that’s the case, this is—
                “You’ve known her nearly your whole life,” Sera says, interrupting my internal high-octane rationalizations. “I’m positive of it. You’ve been in love with your Connection for a very long time.”
                If somebody had smashed a brick down on my head during this moment, I wouldn’t have been more surprised. So I sound like a total idiot when I blurt out, “You mean she’s real?”
                It’s the first time I’ve ever said anything about the girl I’ve called Chloe out loud, to anyone. EVER.
                “Well, of course,” the Seer says. And then she has the audacity to laugh. At me. Because I’m too . . . I don’t know. Slow? Stupid? Naïve? To grasp what she thinks is basic Magical Info 101. Normally, this would piss me off royally, but right now, I temper that annoyance down because I’m pretty sure if she doesn’t answer my questions, I’m going to have a full-fledge meltdown right here in her office. It’s been weeks—scratch that, MONTHS—since I last saw or heard from the girl in my dreams. Even if this Seer can give me the smallest bit of info, I’m completely willing to let her think I’m the biggest idiot on the Human plane. “No one has a Connection to an imaginary Magical,” she finishes lamely.
                THUD. Another brick smashes down on my apparently thick skull. My voice drops to a whisper. “She’s a Magical?”
                Jesus. Now I’ve basically turned into a parrot.
                The Seer cocks her head to the side. “I don’t understand . . .?”
                And then everything in me, everything I’ve felt for this girl my whole life floods me, and it’s too much, way too much, so the dam bursts forth and finally, finally, the truth comes rushing out. I don’t think I can stop the words even if I wanted to, and right now, here—I don’t want to. “I’ve . . . I’ve dreamed about this girl my whole life. I never knew she was real, though. I mean—I hoped she was, but . . .”
                Sera gets this dreamy look, and a flash of envy streaks through her. “OH! You’ve got a doorway! Lucky, lucky! So very rare.” Her smile is the rueful, conspiratorial one now. “What most Magicals wouldn’t do for one.”
                She knows about . . . “The doorway?”
Kill me now, because there’s more of the parroting.
The Seer blushes violently now. If I wasn’t so, oh, I don’t know, BLOWN AWAY, I just might be annoyed or amused at the fact that she’d just wished she’d had a doorway with me. But I have no time for these shenanigans. “How do you know about the doorway?”
It’s her turn to clear her throat. “Um, it’s . . . one of the ways some people with Connections meet? Like I said, it’s rare, maybe two percent of all Connection cases are like this. So . . .” She scratches her upper arm. “You’re the first person I’ve met with a doorway, though. Have you met her in person yet?”
I go lightheaded right before the ground below me moves.

Cover reveal- Amber's Faerie Tale

You asked for it, you've got it...Amber's story!  If you haven't read Enlightened, it is recommended to read that book before reading this novella.  As a matter of fact, if you haven't read it...don't read the synopsis of this book....or pay attention to the title.  By continuing to read, you're taking it into your own hands that you're reading a spoiler.  Don't write me and say you had no idea and now you're scarred for life.  Nope, you can't say those things.

You're reading at your own risk.  I'm warning you to turn your eyes and run and read the first two books before going any further.

Amber, the sassy sidekick to Jessie Lucente has met her match the day she meets bad boy Thorne.  They've gone on a few dates, but Thorne is Jessie's guardian and he has a mission to protect her at all cost.  He's able to handle Amber's sarcasm and dishes it back, to her dismay.  They are just learning how to juggle dating and Thorne's guardian schedule when Amber is abducted during a school dance.
Amber knows her abductors have a schedule, and if she isn't rescued before time is up, she'll die.  She doesn't fear death, she fears the pain it will cause her friends and Thorne.  When Amber's brother died she thought of nothing else but taking her own life, but knew how much it would hurt her family.  The only problem now is she has something and someone to live for; but she refuses to fear the end.

This isn't a love story full of sweet kisses and adoring teens, so if you're looking for that kind of faerie-tale, read about Jessie and Caleb.
