Blurb: 
A hard-earned shield.

Days before she is to take her place as a shield maiden, like her mother before her, two deaths alter the course of Liv’s future. One belonged to a witch who called her by name, the other a chieftain from the north. Vengeance for the chieftain’s death comes in a wild fury that burns her village and slaughters her family. Left for dead, Liv pleads to Skuld – norn and weaver of the future – to spare her. A deal is struck that will endow her with the dark magic needed to claim her vengeance. But this power comes at an unfathomable price… 

Ink made from the ashes of loved ones. 

After his home is attacked, Calder races to warn neighboring villages of the threat. Little does he know he’s traveling into the path of fate that will lead him straight to Liv. Despite being broken, angry, and overwhelmed by power she cannot contain, it’s her willingness to defend others that draws Calder to her. 

Armor forged from the bones of those she held dear. 

Together, Liv and Calder discover they are two sides of the same sharpened blade. Rising from the heartache and fury in their pasts, they see a future together worth fighting for. With their strengths and hearts combined, can they become a force powerful enough to defeat the fleet of darkness coming for them? Or will the thread of fate that binds them unravel?

Author Suzanna Lynn is a happily married, full-time mother of three beautiful, energetic children, and lives in a small town nestled in the deep rolling hills of Missouri.

Growing up in the Ozarks, Suzanna spent her childhood wandering the fields and woods surrounding her home. While most children avoided the dark corners of the woods, she sought them out; imagining them to be filled with fairies, dragons and all number of creatures.

 

Having not lost her childhood imagination, Suzanna has written numerous poems, songs and short stories that won various awards in high school and college. Her dream was to, one day, be an author.

 

In 2014 she decided to stop wishing she could publish a book and made the dream a reality when she released The Bed Wife.

 

That first novella gave birth to two more books, completing the series, and stirred the embers of a new five-book series called The Untold Stories. She has since published stand alone novels, and even has several children’s books in the works.

 

When she’s not busy writing or spending time with her family, Suzanna loves to draw and paint, as well as scrapbooking. She also has been known to volunteer with her children’s school, the Ladies Auxiliary, and even the local zoo!

“And may I ask another question?” Red asked, making her voice soft and sweet. “If it’s not too much trouble.”

            “Of course, my dearie.” The old driver laughed. “Always happy to assist a young beauty like yourself.”

            “Back at the village… um… what was it called? I missed the sign,” she asked.

            “Pineborough is the name.”

            “Yes, Pineborough,” she continued. “May I ask why everyone was so… well… mournful? Has something happened?”

            “Oh, um,” the driver mumbled, shifting uncomfortably in his seat. “They’s just a bit nervous is all.”

            “Nervous?” Red pressed. “Because of the wagon? Because of us?”

            “Or the guards?” Rapunzel offered from behind her.

            “Oh no.” The driver shook his head. “Nothing like that. It’s just getting close to evening is all.”

            “They’re scared of the dark?” Red laughed. “Surely not.”

            “True right, they are,” the driver replied, his voice deep and serious. “And you should be, too, if you know what’s good for ya.”

            “Why must I be scared of the dark?” Red asked, her eyebrows furrowed.

            “Because the dark is when it comes,” he growled. “The dark brings death.”

            “Death? What comes?” I stammered, scrambling closer to the little window.

            “The beast.”

Title: The Reign of Silence
Author: D. Fischer
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy
Publisher: Divinus Kingdom Publishing
Hosted by: LadyAmber’s PR

Blurb:

There are rumors of a crown that will show the true whereabouts of those who were chosen to replace
the gods. A crown that once belonged to the late queen of shadows.
 

Nefari Ashcroft doesn’t care about rumors. She plans to take it for herself because with it,
she can claim what’s rightfully hers: Her title as her peoples’ fated queen.
 

First, Nefari must travel to her kingdom – a kingdom that hasn’t witnessed a living soul for a
decade. This harrowing journey will test everything and everyone she thought
she knew.
 

It was prophesied that the shards of a broken kingdom will find the fated queen, but what if these
shards slice deeper than glass?

Bestselling and award-winning author D. Fischer is a mother of two very busy boys, a wife to a wonderful husband, and an owner of two sock-loving German Shorthair Pointers. They also have a cat named Geralt, but since Geralt adopted them and not the other way around, the cat is more of a tenant who occasionally purr-purrs for his rent, if he’s not too busy murdering nerf darts.

Together, these misfits live in Orange City, Iowa.

When D. Fischer isn’t chasing after her children, she spends her time typing like a mad woman while consuming vast amounts of caffeine. Sometimes, if her husband can manage to remind her of the real world outside her office window, they hike!

Known for the darker side of imagination, she enjoys freeing her creativity through worlds that don’t exist, no matter how much we wish they did.

 Title: The Shape of Darkness

Author: D. Fischer
Genre: YA Epic Fantasy
Narrator: Zura Johnson
Cover & Trailer Designer: Divinus Kingdom Publishing
Publisher: Divinus Kingdom Publishing
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

“Is there anyone you trust, Nefari?” Dao asks. “Yes. I trust death.” 

For ten years, Nefari Ashcroft, princess of the Shadow Kingdom, has hidden. For ten years, she’s endured the memory of everyone she’s lost. Half the shadow people are dead, the other half are enslaved, and her once prosperous kingdom is nothing but an elaborate mass grave. 

Now, dark magic has allowed the Queen of Salix to wreak havoc on the realm; wraiths hunt from the sky, the harvestmen march across the land, and the bone criers pick apart the flesh of the corpses left behind. 

Nefari was prophesied to rise and be the sword of the realm. With her bright magic, she was born to conquer the darkness. And for ten years, she’s trained to do just that. . . 

It should be easy, since everyone thought she died the day her kingdom was destroyed. But staying hidden – remaining ‘nobody’ – is simpler than accepting her past, enduring her fate, and claiming her crown. 

This book follows The Woe of Shadows (Heavy Lies the Crown: Prequel).

Cover Designer: Melissa Stevens/ The Illustrated Author Design Services

Blurb:
Sometimes witches hunt their own…

Someone knows my secret and they’re wielding it as the weapon of my execution. I stand accused of poisoning my Gravebriar coven mate. To my fatal regret, I can’t prove my innocence without revealing the truth I’ve long kept hidden: while every other Gravebriar witch are green witches and healers, my magic lies in poisons.

There is one witch who believes me – the same boy who was sent to kill me with instructions to pluck the briars that sprouted from my grave – the only cure for a Gravebriar witch. Forge Silverthorn will be my undoing… or my salvation.

He claims there is a malicious plot vining through the witch town of Cauldron that threatens to tighten around my throat in a deadly noose. Promising I can escape by seeking the help of a banished witch who hides our kind in plain sight, he leads me to a dark circus full of witches.

The ringmaster will only help us if we agree to join his circus of uncanny tricks and diabolical feats for two nights only, using our magic to thrill his patrons. In exchange for our participation under the big top, he’ll divulge the information I need to save my coven mate and clear my name.

But when dark secrets emerge from the shadows of this promised sanctuary, I’m forced to decide if I can truly trust anyone, especially Forge… my would-be executioner, my coven’s sworn enemy, and my could-be love.

Blurb: 
One Prince. One Witch. One Fate.
The upheaval in my life began the moment a prince stumbled into my house and asked me to read his fortune. Any other night, I might have made an excuse to get him to leave, but this was no normal visit. My fingers prickled to touch him. So, I granted his request by handing him a single wishbone. When he snapped it, the wish … bled.
Hearing me suck in a shocked breath, he asked what it meant. Such an ominous omen could only mean one thing: his death was imminent. Fate revealed that he wouldn’t die of natural causes. Someone wanted him dead. Stunned by the revelation, the man I now knew as Prince Tauren disappeared into a night I feared he wouldn’t survive. The following day, I received an invitation to the castle. While it seemed the prince believed I could intervene and uncover who was plotting his death, his motives didn’t stop there. I was being summoned to join twelve other women in vying for the opportunity to be his wife and future queen.
Going could mean jeopardizing my plans to reclaim my heritage and resurrect the House of Fate. But staying would guarantee Tauren’s death, and the blood of his wish would be on my hands.
