In 2023, MultiMind Corporation releases the Wristcuff, giving its wearers pleasant dreams and improved health.
At least this is what Earth’s population is led to believe.
For the Dreamers, this technology fails to work, and they’re shunned because of their inability to adapt and evolve like the rest of the human race.
Amelia is a Dreamer. When she meets someone who helps her see through the veil of MMC’s lies and secrets, her world is shaken to its core. Amelia has to decide whether to fight for the freedom to dream, or take the ‘next step in evolution’ with the rest of society.
I had it all figured out. Graduate high school and head to college. It was just icing that my college of choice also happened to be where my life long crush and the boy next door, Cohen, was already attending. I had already been accepted.
Everything was working out perfectly.
The only problem was that my ‘perfect’ didn’t involve a freakin’ invasion. So, when everything went dark and monsters, literal monsters, fell from the sky, I had no idea what to do.
Hey, I’m not your perfect dystopian heroine. Hell, I’m not even your everyday human.
It took some time, and a bit of work, but now instead of graduating and following Cohen to college I am now hunting massive winged demon… things.
When your life is a lie, how do you know what’s real?
Alexandra Gastone has a simple plan: graduate high school, get into Princeton, work for the CIA, and serve her great nation.
She was told the plan back when her name was Milena Rokva, back before the real Alexandra and her family were killed in a car crash.
Milena was trained to be a sleeper agent by Perun, a clandestine organization from her true homeland of Olissa. There, Milena learned everything she needed to infiltrate the life of CIA analyst Albert Gastone, Alexandra’s grandfather, and the ranks of America’s top intelligence agency.
He hid the old pencil-drawn map for 40 years.
The guards never found it.
After 40 years in San Quentin, Luke Palmer leaves with a state-issued suit, $100 dollars to buy a bus ticket, and a map that will lead to a promise and into the heart of a dark forest.
“The Butterfly Forest is a high-octane thriller that is part mystery, part love story, and full bore great storytelling that you’ll think about days after you’ve left the woods.”
– John Davenport (Orlando, FL)
College graduate student Molly Monroe is about to release rare butterflies not far from where the FBI used 4,000 bullets in a shootout to kill Ma Barker and one of her gangster sons in 1935. Molly snaps a picture that will frame something she never sees coming.

THE VAMPIRE WORLD IS IN CRISIS . . .
Old vampires, roused from deep slumber in the earth, are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn their kin in cities across the globe, from Paris to Mumbai, Hong Kong to San Francisco. Left with little time to spare, a host of familiar characters including Louis de Pointe du Lac, Armand, and even the vampire Lestat, must embark on a journey to discover who—or what—is driving this mysterious being.
It was going to be exquisite: a rambling, shingled New England cottage converted into a grand beach inn. Nestled among hydrangeas and swaying dune grasses, this seaside haven would welcome guests on the Connecticut shore. Except the little beach town of Stony Point is no longer feeling like a haven to its residents. Residents including a brooding Jason Barlow, the esteemed architect in charge of the inn’s renovation–until a stubborn, grief-induced For Sale sign puts an end to that.
But with a little help from the beach friends, anything is possible. In an effort to save the inn and convince its cherished owner to stay, the friends band together to stage an inn-tervention, shaking up their own lives in the process.
