Blurb:

.Niamh’s banishment from Ireland is as incomprehensible as it was unfair.

A fairy thrust into the world of New York; she has to learn to make it on her own.

When Simon, the Lord of Lycan’s first sets eyes on Niamh, he’s captivated, but he’s not the only one.

Simon thinks money and power can buy her safety.

He installs her in an apartment block the clan buys as an investment, aware of the restrictions she faces.

When the reality of her danger comes to the fore, Simon whisks Niamh away, but whoever is stalking her doesn’t give up easily.

They may both desire a life together, but danger is lurking around every corner.

Cover Designer: Jacqueline Sweet
Editor: Karen Sanders
Publication Date: Oct. 1st, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

To the north of the Realms of Centuros lies the nation of Castille. From the vast cities of Aelthorn and Rheins, the wild and mysterious forests of Aranach and Derrien and the pirate-haven ports of Hightide and Blade’s Edge, Castille is home to many dangers and adventures to come. From their citadel in the Skypeak Mountains the sorcerers of the Sacred hold dominion over the realms of Centuros, forcibly inducting any they chose and punishing all who deny them. 

When challenged by a fellow Guildmember, Wraith and her allies known as The Forsaken descend into the Lockwood Mausoleum, crypts that have claimed the lives of many would-be treasure hunters and graverobbers. 

All Wraith seeks is to recover a single lost relic, but in the darkness of the tombs she will discover an evil that cannot be allowed to escape and a lost friend she cannot abandon.

Title: Fire & Ice
Author: Michele Barrow-Belisle
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Cover Designer: AMDesign Studio
Publishing: BarBelle Publishing
Publication Date: Oct. 26th, 2021

Blurb:

Adventure wasn’t something Lorelei was interested in. Gifted by a dark Faerie with two other-worldly talents for singing and healing, she’s always shied away from her gifts, preferring invisibility, over attention and fame. But when she meets the enigmatic Adrius, with his dark and dangerous mystique and eyes that see into her soul, her life becomes irrevocably altered. 

Adrius turns up in every one of her classes and knows more about her than any newcomer should. Including the condition of her mother who is suffering from a mysterious illness. Accepting his offer to help leads her into a terrifying and thrilling world, where Elves are even hotter than Legolas, and Faeries…are nothing like Tinkerbell. The two magical beings are fire and ice opposites. One Lorelei can’t help falling for, and the other she’s compelled to be with. 

Now she’s trapped, expected to prevent a war between witches and faeries, or forfeit her mother’s life. Nothing is what it seems. Not her family. Not the Fey. Not even Adrius, whose feelings for her balance precariously between desire and danger. Despite her better judgment, she can’t stay away. 

As secrets unravel and unsettling truths are revealed, Lorelei must fight to save much more than her mother’s life. One mistake could put the fate of his world, and her soul in jeopardy. 

But hey, no pressure…right…

Entering the woods is forbidden. To go in can mean a fate worse than death. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Laura has been told. But living in a new town with nothing to do, she ignores her mother’s dire warnings and explores the forest near her home. 

The trees entice Laura deeper into the woods. A mysterious, soothing voice calls her name, and she becomes lost. When a young man finds her, she thinks she’s saved. But he insists their meeting is more than a coincidence. For centuries, his colony has been waiting for a savior. With his alluring eyes and gentle smile, Laura almost believes his crazy story. 

Caught between worlds, and with her life at stake, she doesn’t know who to believe or trust. Her heart tells her one thing and her head another.

Is it her destiny, or will her fate only postpone the inevitable?

            The hair on my arms rose. My heart thumped hard, the blood pulsing through my chest into my throat. Looking left and right, my muscles tensed to run or fight.

“Who’s there? What do you want?” I said at the same low whisper, my voice shaking.

A shimmering blur disappeared behind a tree—a featureless something, flashing in indistinguishable color as quickly as a silent whip.

“Laura,” someone said again, gentle and feather-light, drifting between the largest trees in front of me.

I held my breath.

“Laura.” My name resonated through the humid night air, echoing through the sugar maples before it thinned and died.

It was a male voice, full- bodied, but lacking malevolence and hostility. Strangely, it put me at ease. There must be a boy somewhere out here in the woods. I was sure of it. The voice sounded young, maybe my age of seventeen.

            Or maybe it was a ghost. My Uncle Dean had told me the locals believed these woods were haunted. But ghosts couldn’t kill. At least that’s what I believed.

“Who are you?” I asked, relaxing my stiff muscles just enough to take a step forward. My shoulders dropped as I exhaled a pent-up breath. Broadening my stance, I leaned forward, raising the branch, and squeezed my eyes shut, hoping to hear it again.

“Laura,” it repeated. The word lingered through the dead of night, ringing softly in my ears. I opened my eyes.

 “How do you know my name?” I asked, moving toward the direction of the voice. As a cool breeze rustled my pajama shorts, I wrapped one arm around myself.

A bird chirp rode the wind, followed by several more, weaving into a rhythm of tweets and trills. I looked up. Within the tousle of leaves and sway of thin limbs, perched a gathering of birds, flexing their wings for flight.

I took a step backwards, my eyes fixed on the canopy of leaves.

The bird calls increased, one squawk overlapping the other until their unique melody collapsed, twisting into an eerie song and wing beats.

“A–are you still there?” I breathed, eyeing the woods ahead of me and taking another step back.

A smear of color flashed to my left, and a cloud of leaves rose from the forest floor.

“Don’t go,” I said, breaking from a whisper.

The woods resonated with angry bird speak, their unnatural song thumping in my ears.

“I want to see you,” I shouted above the rising mad twitter.

A shadow skated across the ground at my feet. Wings flapped overhead, and a bird beak met my scalp with a hard peck.

Title: Of Blood, Shadows, and Death
Author: Brandy Nacole
Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal
Cover Designer: The Illustrated Author
Blurb by: The Blurb Doctor
Publication Date: Oct. 1st, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

I was born in the shadows of night. A witch destined to protect those who are vulnerable in their waiting hour. Like all those who came before me, this lineage was considered an honor, a gift given to a select few. 

My existence was expected to be a promise of simplicity and rituality. The one clear path between life and death. It proved to be anything but. 

As time passed, my mind began to wonder. My soul craving adventure outside of my darkened world. A life in the light… I could only imagine how spectacular that would be. 

Some saw this curiosity as the beginning of my fall. To me, it was the start… of my uprising.

Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending time with her family and friends, throwing around crazy ideas, teaching, and singing like a rock star at a concert for no one else but herself. She loves plants, but unfortunately is a killer of anything that requires water but can’t voice (scream) their needs.

Author: Amy Bartelloni
Genre: YA Camelot Fantasy
Publication Date: Aug. 17th, 2021
Publisher: Aethon Books
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

Camelot is in trouble. Only they can save it.

Arynn Pendragon grew up on the Island of Avalon, isolated and dreaming of the colorful fires that burn on the mainland. Dragons protect the island, but the Knights have forbidden any other magic. 

Arynn and her friend Malik yearn to discover the mysteries they’ve only heard about in whispers and forbidden books. When Malik gives her a way to escape the island, she takes it, even though she knows it means she can never return home. 

What they discover on the mainland is more than she ever dreamed. Camelot is a world of magical creatures: magnificent dragons, elves, dwarves, and fairies who shrink when they take flight. But Camelot is in grave peril. King Arthur is missing, and in his place, Kay, the Regent, has waged war on magic. Arynn and Malik must rescue Arthur before Kay can destroy Camelot forever. 

Experience the start of an Epic Fantasy saga suitable for all ages, which brings a fantasy twist to the legend of Camelot through Arthur’s long-lost niece who must go on a quest to bring magic back.

  

Amy Bartelloni is a reader, writer, & coffee addict who lives with her husband, 3 children, and various animals in the northeast US. When she’s not playing mom-taxi, you can find her with her nose in a book or her head in the clouds. A people watcher and science fiction junkie, she still believes dreams can come true. Some of her favorite authors include Neil Gaiman, Jasper Fforde, Grady Hendrix, and Stephen King.  She’s the author of the three book YA dystopian Andromeda series, YA sci/fi Gen One, and the three book YA Camelot fantasy Children of Camelot series, as well as contributing to several anthologies.

The whole thing was a bad idea.  She knew that, but they’d had bad ideas before.  Even their adventures climbing the mountain were – strictly speaking – forbidden, but if she followed all the rules, she’d never have seen the way the ocean unfurls all the way to the horizon, or the quiet silence of knowing the heart of a dragon.  Or the beauty of the lights twinkling across the mainland shore.  Though they raised more questions than they answered, she couldn’t imagine a life without such mystery.  No, Malik was right.  Whatever the cost, they had to pay.  Even if it meant never seeing her home again.
