When wildlife prodigy Sam and her crush—quirky handsome Jake—are attacked by a dragon assassin, Sam discovers her secret past. A past connected to a supernatural giant cat and a glowing faerie. Sam is quickly pulled into a high stakes battle for the world. Everyone, including a creepy ancient villain, wants her supernatural staff, which she doesn’t know how to use. Sophisticated ninja dragons, a kong-sized gorilla, and mysterious beasts offer help—but are they friends or enemies? Sam has a big heart, but will her love for all creatures tear her life apart? To survive the hardest choice she's ever made, Sam will have to unlock the hidden power inside her. Ready or not, Sam is about to find out if she has what it takes to be a guardian… Guardian: The Choice is the new exciting start of a magic-filled fantasy four book series starring a powerful heroine, a tough brawny hero, and a slew of not-so-friendly magical beasts. ***** Sam and Jake must capture a magical golden dragon—or Jake dies. Can Sam can save the man she loves? And will she have to die to do it? But everyone wants the golden dragon, including the powerful Evil One, who has been hiding for centuries and has sworn to destroy all of life. No one can be trusted. Death Matches and ancient secrets test the guardians as never before. Sam fears that whatever she does, she won’t be able to save Jake…nor stop the Evil One. ***** IAN BOTY awards = Independent Author Network Book of the Year Awards CHOICE won the Young Adult category. Guardian: The Choice was selected as Finalist in “Fantasy,” and “Young Adult” category winner! And Guardian: The Choice was selected as the “Outstanding Young Adult” category winner! Read an Excerpt from Guardian: The Quest “Manticore,” I murmur. “He’s beautiful.” “Do you need glasses, Sam?” Jake shakes his head. “Well, he is,” I insist. “If you ignore that we have to fight him.” “You’re right! Why didn’t I see that?” Jake flips a hand. “He’s kind of beautiful in a I’m going to tear you to pieces and chomp your limbs off kind of way.” “Hello!” I say loudly. “We’re your friends!” The manticore keeps walking and snarls at me. “You do have a way with wild animals!” Jake winks at me. “Shut up. We could die here you know.” “Good point.” The beast is a deformed Lesser which must have been away from KiraKu’s water and air too long—even longer than Biggie, given the mutation it went through. Lessers are the basis for all mythological creatures in human legends, but the ones we’ve met so far were able to talk with reason. This creature appears disturbed, with no visible vulnerabilities. Worse, I don’t want to kill it. It makes me even angrier at Kert. Uncle Biggie calls in his singsong voice, “Be nice now, wittle kitty. All’s gonna be okay now.” The manticore stops and snarls, wagging its head as if to shake Biggie’s soothing voice out of its ears. Several years ago I watched Uncle Biggie calm down a whole warehouse of nervous wild animals in minutes, so I’m hopeful.

Warrior Woman of the Samurai Series by India MillarFirefly Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 1 by India Millar Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance There are some who believe that the honor of a samurai is reserved for men. But they are wrong. Keiko was born the daughter of a samurai. But as a mere younger sister, her future was to run errands for her lovely elder sister and obey her father. Until the day it fell to her to defend the honor of her sister and her family... Goodreads * Amazon Mantis Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 2 Keiko’s men are dead, slaughtered by peasants in a desperate attempt to obtain food for their starving families. She is the last of her line; without her, the noble and ancient house of Hakuseki will die. In order to try and save her family name, this noble samurai warrior woman is forced to humble herself at the feet of the local daimyo. When he ridicules her and takes the family estate for himself, the samurai code of bushido says there is only one thing left for Keiko. Vengeance. Keiko plots to take revenge for the actions of her greedy noble lord and revenge against the men who wanted to buy her and keep her as their slave. Just like the praying mantis, Keiko lures her enemies into a sense of safety before taking her revenge… Goodreads * Amazon Chameleon Warrior Woman of the Samurai Book 3 Keiko’s revenge on her enemies is almost complete.

Keiko is sure she knows who is behind the abduction, but she cannot act alone to get Niko back. She is forced to turn to the most unlikely ally to help her—Akira, the most feared yakuza in Edo.

Daeios: 140 Feet Down by Colleen Eccles PenorDaeios: 140 Feet Down by Colleen Eccles Penor Genre: Dystopian Thriller They believed Daeios would be a safe haven. They were wrong. Fleeing apocalyptic weather, a young survivalist woman and her family seek safety deep underground. But a new danger awaits them. When the leaders of the shelter announce their plans to repopulate the earth using all fertile females, Shea knows she will be forced to become a breeder. Horrified at her impending fate, Shea must make the gut-wrenching decision whether to breed with an elderly, sadistic man and bear his child, or to fight the breeding, knowing that defiance will endanger her life and that of those she loves most. A dystopian thriller with overtones of The Handmaid’s Tale, Shea’s chilling story will appeal to readers with an interest in family and survival. Contains mature situations and language. Add to Goodreads Amazon * Bookbub I exhale a sigh of relief. I’ve been holding my breath, but oh, my God, we have to get out of here before someone comes and sees what Mother has done. Someone may have heard the shots. We’ll leave, and the rain will cover our tracks, but we have to hurry. I lay my gun on the table and step down from the RV to help. Mother faces me, and she’s terrifying. She’s all sharp angles and shadows and smeared mascara. I expect a thunderbolt and lightning and a bloodcurdling scream, but there’s nothing but hammering rain. My mother is soaked, her skirt clinging to her slender legs, her white bra showing through her blouse, translucent with rain. Her wet hair looks black in the gloom. Loose tendrils hang from her previously tidy bun. If she’s concerned about having killed a man, she doesn’t show it. It makes me wonder if there’s something in her past I don’t know about. I turn back inside to see Maya holding Jace. She’s rocking him as they weep quietly. “Maya, come help with Dad. Hurry.” Jace lunges for Maya when she gets up, but she’s too quick for him to reach her. He continues to sob, his shoulders jerking. I doubt if he even knows what happened. I despise his weakness. Maya’s still crying as we run toward Dad, and I want to cry, too, but I need to be strong for her if I can. We fight against the wind that pushes us toward Dad’s attacker. I don’t want to see him, but my eyes are fascinated by this abomination. The man’s remaining eye, wide open and all black, stares at us as raindrops fall in the pool of blood collecting around what’s left of his head. I imagine evil spirits, their voices howling on the wind, are pulling us toward the man’s reach, and I panic, tugging too hard at Maya’s arm, but it breaks the spell, and we run to Dad. Colleen Eccles Penor wrote and illustrated her first children’s book, The Rubber Ducky, when she was seven, and sold it for 25 cents, keeping 100% of her royalties.
