Elizabeth Jade stumbled into writing at the age of fourteen when she began to struggle with depression and anxiety. It wasn’t until the age of eighteen that she realised her struggles in school had been due to Aspergers Syndrome (an autistic spectrum disorder). She has always had a passion for animals and has volunteered at various animal rescues, so it seemed only natural that her stories would revolve around them.
Akea is a Siberian husky who was born into a family of sled dogs and a life which should have followed a predictable path, but from the day she first saw the lone wolf, Akea knew her future lay beyond the safety of her home. The wolf, Kazakh was well aware of Akea’s destiny and the traditions he would break to help her reach it. His task was to make sure Akea would be ready, no matter what the cost.
In ‘Akea – The Power of Destiny,’ you go through every part of Akea’s emotional and heartfelt journey to discover who she is and what she is destined to become. It is a sensitive and heartening story that will remind you of Jack London’s ‘Call of the Wild’. This story of self-discovery, loyalty and hope, will be the first in a series of stories for this unique husky. Having an autistic spectrum disorder has been a challenge for this young author in many ways and she is grateful for the support she is receiving from so many different people.
For fans of the Hunger Games (Stephanie Myer), A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J Maas), Graceling (Kristin Cashore), Divergent (Veronica Roth) and Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard).
“Gorgeous, fresh writing and a feisty heroine exploring a darkly magical world where nothing is as it first seems. Change of Chaos is perfect for YA fans who want to trek through a beautifully described world alongside a cast of compelling, fiercely likable characters. Jacinta Jade is a master of writing fast-paced, authentic action scenes.” (Michelle Hope, editor to top tier authors such as George R. R. Martin)

Husband, father, author, blogger and man who seems capable of holding seven streams of nonsense in his mind at any one moment.
I’ve had two novels of supernatural fiction published, ‘The Wannabes’ and ‘Hell’s Secrets’, both of which are available on Amazon. I have various other projects on the go, in particular a huge story it will take me at least a trilogy to write, and which – as you might imagine – if taking up a huge amount of my time and energy right now.
‘The Wannabes’ is freshly published in a Kindle version this year, and will be joined by numerous short stories. The first of which – ‘Foliage’ – is already published, and sits right on the crossing point of my interests in science fiction and horror.
PB & Jason
A young man with secret and extraordinary abilities is forced to reveal them, and everything changes. With the help of his dad and boyfriend, Lee Min-Su becomes a super-hero. But it’s soon apparent that comic book fantasy and reality are two very different things. Old secrets come to light in the company of new ones, and life’s layers are challenged in ways unforeseen. A cast of memorable characters joins Lee on his journey into a brand new world, a world where super-powers are very real.
PB & Jason is a husband, dad, musician, author, podcaster, Dungeons and Dragons world builder, and an all-around nice guy.
I live and work in Chester County, Pennsylvania, an area rich in Revolutionary War and Colonial American history. My enduring interest in 18th Century America began at a young age, inspired by the novels of Dale Van Every and Allan Eckert, whose timeless tales of adventure and romance capture the essence of early American lore. Eager to read more such stories, to my disappointment I had trouble finding them on bookshelves, so I decided to write one of my own. Thus began a journey fueled by my passion to breathe life into history through believable characters, plots woven with adventure, romance and suspense and, of course, plenty of derring-do.
This looks like a great site, and a nice idea. I’ll love to join and try it out, and hope for you all the best.
I’m 62 years young and started my first fantasy book in April 2017. I went to college with an intent to write full time, but became a Firefighter instead, eventually retiring as a Deputy Firs Chief. (Life got in the way.) Now I’m doing what I genuinely love, writing traditional fantasy. When not rewriting and editing, I also am writing fantasy-based short stories, usually a bit on the dark side. (Well, sometimes more than just a bit.) My NIP is the first book in a planned four-part series. If I live through the first four, maybe more, lol.
I am many things. A man. A soldier. Trained to kill. Born to hunt. Focused and lethal, nothing gets through the stoic control that hides my inner animal. An animal that simmers with rage and power. And that power makes me the perfect assassin. Then….. SHE invades my world. Charlotte – petite, beautiful and sexy as hell. A cop who claims a past with me that I don’t remember. At all. A dangerous distraction. My beast is captivated but suspicious, torn between wanting to sink teeth into her and…….wanting to sink teeth into her. My body craves her. But….. I don’t remember her. I don’t trust her. And I don’t trust myself around her. Who is she? Is she lying? And do I have enough control to not be blinded by her? To protect my secrets and uncover hers? And who pays the price?
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.
