Blurb:
From the USA Today & International Bestselling author of the Saga of Crimson & Clover comes a gripping new epic fantasy world that will leave you breathless to the very last page.

A crown woven together by lies.

A kingdom with the power to unravel them.

Four Reaches. Four brides. Only a fortnight separates the young women from becoming reluctant queens of the usurper king, Eoghan Rhiagain.

Twenty years earlier, King Eoghan’s father cunningly devised marriages between the highborn sons and daughters of the oft-warring Reaches, sealing the unions before they could protest, shattering existing betrothals in place of forced alliances.

Now, Eoghan, the cruel boy king who stole his crown through murder, demands the eldest daughters of these unions. To accept is unfathomable. To refuse is treason.

The lords and ladies of the kingdom have no choice but to prepare their beloved daughters for the horrors ahead. But they’ll soon discover there are no longer any daughters left to present. All four have disappeared, painting the world with their rebellion.

Theirs is not the only rebellion. Across the kingdom, little fires light within. From the enigmatic sorcerers in the northern mountains, to the magi who both wield and regulate the kingdom’s magic, and beyond… to a place where two prisoners are not what they seem.

As the Reaches ready themselves to face the king, the kingdom hovers on the edge of chaos.

And there are many who recall, in candlelit secrecy, tales of a time before… 

NOW LIVE!!

Sarah is a USA Today and International Bestselling Author of fantasy fiction, most known for her Saga of Crimson & Clover world. Her work has been described as rich, emotive, and highly dimensional.

An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf’s personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Pennsylvania, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.

Blurb:

Treachery can lie in the heart of any man, from our worst enemy to our
most beloved friend. Some choose to ignore it, while others work on defeating
it no matter the cost—and the cost is always high. However, the Righteous Man
believes he can alter the course of his life to one of redemption and justice
instead of servitude and pain by using deceit and sedition.

 

But, he would be wrong.

 

For Honora, it’s something she’s seen in her previous life as the Shadows
in the form of Macarius, Dolos, and Dermont. Now it takes the shape of someone
she trusts… someone she loves. The betrayal awaiting her is like no other.

 

For the Righteous Man deceives all… none more than himself.

 

I’ve always
loved to write ever since I was young. I would picture myself as the main
character so I could go on adventures. They began as daydreams, which I
eventually put down onto paper. Throughout the years I would write whenever I
got the chance no matter how small the manuscript turned out to be. I’d tried
the traditional method of sending out query letters to agents, but they would
respond with a “thanks, but no thanks” note. I felt discouraged, but kept
writing. I had a lot of encouragement from my mom, my Aunt Jeanne, my daughter,
and my husband. Having the support helped keep me chasing my dream. A few years
ago, I decided to buckle down and get serious about my writing. After some
research and speaking with a friend of my husband, I took the plunge into
self-publishing. I found an editor and a cover designer along with other indie
authors on Facebook. I’ve joined groups and asked advice from writers who have
already been through the steps it takes to get out there. It took me four years
and three versions before I published my first book titled Wasteland. From
there, I’ve completed several series and stand-alones with quite a few more in
progress, so watch for their release.

Title: Promises Broken (Nine Kingdoms, Book 4)
Author: Ann Bakshis
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Editor: John Cameron McClain
Cover Designer: Lori Pryzbranowski of Hell Yes Designs
Blurb:
A fortunate turn of events has Evander seeing his desires finally being fulfilled, but at a great cost to his wife Honora. Her only wish now is to flee the realm, but that can’t happen until the gate into the lost kingdom of Toorkuns has been unlocked. The moment it is, all the creatures in Reynes will have their full powers restored, and balance of rule will shift to the dark magic beings.
But neither she nor Evander have the nine medallions required to unlock the gate, and there’s very few opportunities available to obtain them without suspicion. Lies will be told, truths unraveled, and deals made that no husband should ever agree to.
Honora plans on reopening the gate… no matter what.

Blurb:

Another kingdom has
fallen. One that had been ruled by a cruel, callous man. Geron was never
considered a desirable kingdom by anyone in Reynes, but now that it has no
ruler the whores, bastards, and criminals who call that land home begin to
spread their poison, infiltrating the other kingdoms with their depravity.Seven
kingdoms now remain of the original nine, but only six meet at a royal
gathering to determine Geron’s fate and the safety of the realm. Honora finds
herself unprepared for the aftermath of her brother Lycus actions, as she’s
pulled into a dispute forged by the ruling kings and queens vying for control
over the home she shared with him. Evander sees this gathering as a perfect
opportunity to collect the medallions he needs, but he’ll have to be very
persuasive in liberating them from their owners without divulging his true
identity, or intentions.

Title: Chaos Reigns
Author: G. S. Scott
Genre: Epic Fantasy (with Romantic Elements & LGBTQ Characters)
Cover Designer: Colleen Nye
Editor: Genevieve Scholl
Publisher: True Tree Press
Publication Date: May 21st, 2019
Blurb:
For 500 years, the God of Chaos has ruled in a torturous reign of brutality. Now, desperate gods and goddesses are seeking an end to his dominion. To counter them, Chaos calls for the Cleansing: the sacrifice of all children under two.
Ellis escapes the Cleansing through intuition and prophetic dreams. Visions drag him north toward an ethereal tower, deep in The Lands of the Dead. His life is saved by Dirge, a swordsman with a haunted past who thinks Ellis was born to end the reign of Chaos. Ellis grows to head a troupe of traveling entertainers. His only true friend is Daylin, a young woman and former priest’s slave who talks with wolves. Always on the move, they stay steps ahead of the fire-wielding priest who killed Ellis’ parents.
To the north, villagers discover Betal at the forest’s edge. Sensing Betal’s immense power, a local paladin excludes Betal from the Cleansing and declares him The Hand of God. As Betal falls into a roll as an acolyte to Chaos, strange dreams of wolves haunt him. His only friend is a fellow acolyte, Mangin, a beguiling young woman who delights in twisting the minds of others. The pair set out to Citadel, where they will become full-fledged priests, if they can escape a murderous beast and assassins who stalk the path.
When the two groups meet, intrigue, love, and sex intertwine them. Can they trust one another when the old gods challenge Chaos using mortals as pawns? Even fools know to trust Chaos is to invite death.

Heartless squatted on the edge of his golden throne, his eye color changing wildly. A snarl played on his lips as he reveled in the power flowing from the Lord of Chaos through the bejeweled, multihued crown, entangled within his long black hair. At the foot of his dais lay the bubbling pool that used to be his herald—the man had the poor luck to bring him the spy. Heartless didn’t dare kill his eyes and ears within the Council of Taneer so he took his rage out on the herald.
A voice whispered in the back of his head.
He glanced at the spot where the spy’s gateway closed when the man left, the lingering scent of burnt ozone still in the air. “What were you holding back?” he asked, his voice echoing in the vast, dust-choked chamber. The light from mangled, crystal chandeliers and rush torches, along with the sparse rays peaking in through boarded windows left the castle in perpetual dim, earning it the name, the Black Keep.

Heartless clenched his fists, the knuckles whitening. It didn’t matter what the spy withheld, the news he brought was bad enough. His face twisted. “Gabriel thinks he can take what is mine? The gall! I won their damned Game. Edis—Chaos himself—chose me, and I won. The world is mine. And now the Arbiter expects me to step down over some time limit? A time limit?” Heartless hurled his golden scepter across the room, the crystal top shattering on the rippled, uneven marble floor. Taking a deep breath, he chuckled. “A Rebirthing? Why would Gabriel do such a thing? Why be a mortal when he’s already a god?”
