I hope you realize the chain of events you cause. One word. One whisper. One promise. Could lead to a domino effect that ends with blood on your hands. ‘Blood’ doesn’t have to be literal in this case. Ten years ago I made a promise. I would have etched the words on this vessel that I call ‘skin’, to make it true. I would have slit my wrists and poured myself out to stand by my word. Alexis Pavette is a seventeen year old girl with an addiction to the next obsession. The only way to get rid of an obsession is by getting a new one. And oh, what a hot, sinful obsession Hunter Reed is. Maybe in his eyes, I was the one who barged into his life, but i’d call it kismet. You reap what you sow, and sweetheart, if you think you’re gonna have the last laugh with me then yeah, kismet is a bitch to send me to you. I’m immune to your cruelty. You can’t break me any more than I already am. That honors went away to my first victim. Who is Hunter Reed? He’s the son of my mother’s lover. Adultery isn’t as sexy when it’s your mother doing it. Well, technically it’s not adultery when your parents are separated, and you just didn’t know about it. The only question now is, who’s gonna burn the house down first? And if I knew what was lying ahead of me, would i stay and burn?

Shakira had never felt at home growing up in Surrey, but as soon as she entered the quaint Welsh village she knew she belonged. Maybe it was because of the welcoming villagers. Or perhaps it was the presence of the others whom she sensed nearby; the ones she saw in her dreams, with their strange glowing eyes.
Fate is not always kind. It gives with one hand and takes with the other. There is a reason she didn’t grow up with her own kind.
A rich tale of witchcraft, fae, sorcery, elinefae and dragons; this is a story for all who dare to believe.

The love of a good story is the reason Zelly Jordan says she had her nose in a book most of the time growing up. Escaping into a world of great love, great adventures and sexy-smexy fun times with drool-worthy heroes and feisty strong women was the highlight of every day. A lover of good coffee, cats and a good chat, with the occasional glass of wine, she lives in the most livable city in the world, Melbourne Australia with her almost grown son. Divorced and happily single, Zelly realised the danger she was facing in becoming the crazy cat lady and it was this fear, together with her love of a particular television show that lead her to give writing “a go”. She let the world in on her attempts as she went along and put it out there on the www for the world to see, if they chose. Surprisingly, they did and this is the result – her debut novel. A perfect example of what can happen if you just try. When she’s not writing or researching, she likes to spend time having a laugh with friends, watching good movies or shows and delving into the lovely world of Angels, crystals and healing. All with the added magic of music and a good espresso.

Fifteen-year-old Morgan is nothing more than an empty shell. She is surrounded by uncaring psychiatrists who’d rather be anywhere else but with her, and is bullied at school because of her wealth and status. She remains isolated from it all, never once giving a thought to friendship, or even love. This all changes when she meets a strange boy named Lucas. From his fickle, humorless jokes, to his cocky grin, to his pure, untainted eyes, Morgan can’t help but wonder if he’s just as unstable as she is, if not more. Over time, the two grow closer and eventually, they fall in love. But memories have a funny way of dragging you below the thin line of insanity. And in the end, they serve as a sentence Morgan could neither hide nor run from.

Melissa doesn’t feel much like the hero she’s being hailed.
While she is glad to have saved a life for once, the one she’d almost taken continues to haunt her dreams and stall her recovery.
Despite her good deed and continuous help from friends and family abroad and Kyle—the father of her little girl—she knows her days of freedom are numbered.

Patrick Witz has from his youth always been fascinated with science, strange discoveries, technology, earth and other worldly places presented in National Geographic and Popular Mechanics. He is a steadfast believer that knowledge and imagination are a powerful combination and readily admits he will forever be a student of the arts, be it creative writing, photograph, or any other artistic interest or endeavor. In his writing, Patrick likes to blend genres and his eclectic nature leads him into a labyrinth of fictional paths. Patrick’s writing goal is to bring his written words to life in reader’s minds… therein to strum emotional cords; sculpt intriguing characters; create captivating dialogue; and paint intricate colorful settings. One can say Patrick’s diversity is the spice of his writing – sometimes sweet, every now and again bitter, often mixed with a sprinkle of humor, a pinch of peculiar flavor, and finished off with an unsuspecting or emotional twist.
