$FREE on 10/31/2019 – The Art of Dying Well: Part 1 by Jodi Ralston

In a world where fairies enslave mankind, the undead roam the unsettled prairies, and supernaturally-strong women protect men against both threats, Rede Russell, Jr., seeks escape in the recently opened wild lands thousands of miles to the far east.

This journey means months of mind-numbing isolation and physical hardship seasoned with the occasional threat to his life and freedom. A fair trade for a young man longing to build his own future instead of marrying into one.

But five months into the overland journey, the weary wagon party stumbles upon an oasis of lush grass, fruit-laden orchards, and a refreshing stream—all of which is just a little too inviting for the party's good.

Despite Rede's misgivings, the group settles down for an overnight stay: a decision that may cost them their lives. For the magical place isn't about to let its prey leave, and death may be their only escape.

This is the first in a series of short novels of pioneering adventures, gunslinging imps, butterfly fairies, cosmic horror, and magic stitches.

$FREE on 10/16/2019 – Ramshackled by Erynn Lehtonen

Some rules should be broken.

Two brothers banned from battle. A forgotten family legacy. Their friend kidnapped by a sorcerer who would threaten them all…

Hidekazu and Masanori Genshu’s futures were preordained. They would not become exalted warriors like their mother and father, nor would they change the course of history. Their family name should fade from legends and histories unnoticed, them with it.

But Masanori and Hidekazu had other plans.

In the early hours of the morning, far from the watchful eyes of their parents, they practiced in secret. Until the day Tsukiko City was attacked, and their friend was kidnapped. Even as the world around Hidekazu and Masanori returned to normal, they realized they could not sit on the sidelines any longer.

It was time for them to fight.

Masa and Hide's journey begins in Ramshackled, the first of four novellas prefacing the Wyvern Wars series: an epic fantasy adventure inspired by selections of Japanese mythology and folklore. Get your free copy today!

When I arrived at Prince Eldran’s estate, I had no memory of who I was or how I’d gotten there, but everything was prepared and waiting for me as though I’d been expected. As I struggled to piece together my past, I met Sorcha, whose memories were as fragmented as mine. We quickly became friends and our connection developed into one that I could only describe as magical. During the Prince’s glittering masquerade ball, I realised that I loved her deeply and I wanted to discover what it meant to share my life with her.

Our love blossomed like the beautiful gardens that surrounded the estate, but something dark was brewing in the realm beyond the mansion. The fae had seemed a peaceable people, but there was much I’d forgotten and war has a way of opening your eyes to the truth. When it reached the shores of Prince Eldran’s enchanted island, Sorcha and I were forced to defend our home and fight for our lives.

We’ve faced so much, but malevolent forces threaten to tear us apart and destroy the life we’ve built together. Only through an unimaginable sacrifice can we hope to survive and help our people… but with so much at stake, can we conquer our enemies and ensure a future for our love?
