Skye Malone’s AWAKEN

Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan.
Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in
unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents
and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know
her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.
But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things
start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’
doesn’t even begin to apply.
Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing
blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be
hiding secrets all his own.
It was supposed to be a vacation. It’s turning out to be a
whole lot more.

About Skye Malone

Skye Malone is a fantasy and
paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time
not-quite-convinced that the things she imagines couldn’t actually exist.
A Midwestern girl who migrated to
the Pacific Northwest, she dreams of traveling the world — though in the
meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the
fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate
characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long
after the book is closed. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without
getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she
listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

Dean Murray’s BROKEN

Adri Paige’s arrival in Sanctuary thrusts her into a
dangerous, shadowy world most people don’t believe exists, and places her in
the middle of a war between darkly handsome Alec Graves and charismatic Brandon
Worthingfield that threatens to consume the entire town.
On the surface, both Alec and Brandon are nothing more than
average high-school guys, but as Adri is pulled ever more deeply into their
conflict she realizes that one of them wants to kill her. Adri needs to decide
who to trust before her time runs out once and for all.

About Dean Murray

Dean Murray is a prolific author
with dozens of titles across multiple pen names and more than half a million
copies of his work currently in circulation.
Dean started reading seriously in
the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent
three decades lost in other people’s worlds.
Things worsened, or improved
depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with
writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a
wonderful wife and two lovely daughters to keep him rather more grounded, but
the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people
in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer
on a fairly regular basis.

The summer after high school graduation, two cute and snarky
boys hit the road in an RV. Their mission: follow the traveling fan convention
for Castaway Planet, the cult sci-fi show they’re both obsessed with.
BRANDON irons his t-shirts, loves the dapper and reserved
Castaway android Sim, and hides his pesky Catholic guilt from his out-and-proud
roadtrip partner, Abel.
ABEL collects funny belt buckles, loves Castaway‘s brave and
dashing Captain Cadmus, has a hot boyfriend with a phoenix tattoo, and has
nothing to hide—except his epic crush on Brandon.
During their six-week cross-country adventure, Brandon and
Abel post new entries on their Castaway Planet fan vlog, spar with an online
community of slash fiction writers, meet their TV idols, play with their action
figures, uncover big secrets, and maybe possibly fall in love. Can two fanboys
face down their obstacles and write themselves a real-life romance—or is
fiction the only thing bringing them together?

About JC Lillis

So about me. I am a veteran of
eight tempestuous Internet fandoms, three Catholic schools, and countless
crushes on fictional characters. I live in Baltimore with my awesome and
patient family and a ragtag band of tropical fish, some of which will probably
be dead by the time you read this. I obsess over thrift store art, homemade
dollhouses, second-tier 80s sitcoms, koi ponds, retrofuturism, Game of Thrones,
Edward Gorey, and peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
My mom still has my first batch of
homemade books. I wrote them when I was six or seven, on stapled pieces of
construction paper. They were about a family of talking silverware, a gray shoe
who lost her mate, and my father’s grim adventures at his office and in
“Giantland” (vastly different locales, though in both places he was shouted at
by the disembodied head of his boss). I’ve been trying to top the Giantland
story ever since. Maybe this will be my year.

Private investigator Jesper MacMillian was sure he’d seen it
all. After all, in a city like San Francisco, strange is what’s for breakfast.
Following a long recovery after a horrific accident, his life is finally the
way he wants it- or at least, close enough. The only monsters on his radar are
the ones that keep him awake at night.
All that changes the day he meets Lena Alan.
Before MacMillian has a chance to brace for impact, Lena
drags him into a world where monsters aren’t just real, they’re hiding in plain
sight. Suddenly, everything he knows is suspect, starting with his current
case. For Lena, a psychic medium since childhood, it’s just another day at the
For MacMillian, it’s the beginning of the end of everything
he thinks he knows.

About LJK Oliva

L.J.K. Oliva is the devil-may-care
alter-ego of noir romance novelist Laura Oliva. She likes her whiskey strong,
her chocolate dark, and her steak bloody. L.J.K. likes monsters… and knows the
darkest ones don’t live in closets.

Kayti Nika Raet’s NIKO

One can live for several weeks without food but only a few
days without water, a fact seventeen year old Niko is only too aware of as she
struggles to provide for her two younger brothers in a post-apocalyptic
landscape where the rain burns like acid, food grows increasingly scarce and
any Slither that crosses her path is laid low before it can sink its teeth into
Then one night everything she’d ever worked for and loved is
consumed by a raging fire, leaving her with one brother missing, the other dead
and herself gravely injured.
She’s rescued by the Rose Circle, a rogue group of Slither
hunters. They sneak her into Amaryllis City, a decadent metropolis where those
able to pay the exorbitant entrance fee live a life of relative ease.
But for Niko, Amaryllis City is not the haven she grew up
believing it would be and her unique abilities as a Slither hunter make her a
particularly visible target to a city with hopes of experimentation,
replication and other nasty bits.
All Niko ever wanted to do was find her baby brother, but
that’s proving to be harder than expected.

About Kayti Nika Raet

Originally from Brooklyn, New York,
Kayti Nika Raet moved down South when she was 11, where she was bitten by the
writing bug, as well as other, less friendly insects.
She is the author of the Outsider
Chronicles, a five book series starting with NIKO and set in a world where the
rain burns like acid and flesh eating monsters roam.
She’s also a reviewer for Readers’
Favorite and has her own Youtube Channel: Kayti Edition.
When she is not hard at work on her
fourth book she has fun reading, listening to K-pop, and photography.
Kayti lives in Milledgeville,

Madhuri Blaylock’s THE GIRL

The Sanctum, an all-powerful governing body founded by ten
families, entrusted to maintain the peace amongst Magicals and ensure the
ignorance of humans, has been corrupted by greed and savagery for generations,
but is all Wyatt Clayworth has ever known.
A descendant of one of the Founding Families and Class A
Warrior, Wyatt has always believed in the ways of The Sanctum, having grown up
in the system and thrived under their leadership. A golden boy, renowned for
his prowess and skill in battle, Wyatt has never questioned a mission or kill
order until the night he crosses paths with a brutally injured and mysterious
Scouring Central Park with his best friend and fellow Class
A Warrior, Ryker Morrison, for the hybrid demon prophesied to bring an end to The
Sanctum and destroy the world for Magicals and humans alike, Wyatt instead
finds Dev and his whole life turns upside down. Told he was hunting a killing
machine, hellbent on wreaking havoc and destruction upon all it encounters,
Wyatt instead sees nothing more than a broken girl with haunted eyes and a bit
of a death wish.
All Dev wants is for Wyatt to either kill her or leave her
alone. When he refuses to do either, she finds herself being pulled into his
life while being hunted by warriors everywhere she turns. Drawn to one another
for reasons they cannot begin to explain to themselves, much less anyone else,
Wyatt is determined to protect Dev and help her realize her mission to avenge
the deaths of her family at the hands of The Sanctum. His abdication of his
duties and his outright rejection of his responsibilities to The Sanctum create
a maelstrom of events beyond anyone’s imagination.

About Madhuri Blaylock

I’m that Indian girl everyone
thinks is Black, or Spanish, or Black and Spanish. I’m from down South, have
lived in the New York City area for more than twenty years, and am proof that
you can take the girl out of the South, but you can’t take the South out of the
I love Old Scout bourbon, tattoos,
french fries, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, my mom’s Indian food, all kinds of  naughty, sexy things, Friday Night Lights,
coffee, and Martha’s Vineyard. I can wiggle my ears, flare my nostrils, and
curl my tongue.
I am an introvert who can fool
people into thinking I’m an extrovert, all the while wishing I was home alone,
not having to speak to a soul, lost in a fantastical world of my own creation.
As the great Charles Bukowski said,
I write because it comes bursting out of me. I cannot stop it, nor do I want
I do other things to pay the bills.
