The Dread march to take the last strongholds of humankind and the defenders are too few. How can mankind stand in the face of such all-consuming power?

Communication with the Elites has been secured and winged allies once thought gone are about to return. They just might stand a chance after all.

Title: The City Wife
Author: R.M. Carpus
Genre: Dystopian, Thriller/Drama
Cover Designer: Robin Johnson of Robin Ludwig Design Inc.
Publication Date: TBA
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
A crushing betrayal.

A transcendent bond.  

Three thousand miles to asylum. 

My name is Joanna, and I’m just another statistic in The City’s trail of collateral damage. 

Before The Turn, my mother, Florence, was a devoted wife, iconic pianist, and tireless humanitarian. On stage and off, her humility and natural grace captivated and inspired her many admirers. Unmatched in elegance and fortitude, she was my role model and hero. 

Swiftly, expertly, The City siphoned her identity and shattered the illusions of her beautiful life. It built her up, then tore her down. She drifted away, far from the person I once knew. I should have known the tide would take me with her. I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere else—with Florence was where I belonged.  

As we fight for a new beginning on the Isle, can we salvage the remains of our past? Or will the delicate fabric of our history be lost forever in the apocalyptic crossfire of two worlds? 

THE CITY WIFE is the first book in the ISLE OF BURTONSHIRE dystopian thriller series. Echoing themes reminiscent of THE HUNGER GAMES, LORD OF THE FLIES, and THE HANDMAID’S TALE, this suspenseful, engrossing mother-daughter drama will hold you hostage until the very last page. 

Buy it now! Immerse yourself in Florence and Joanna’s harrowing journey to the Isle of Burtonshire.

 

A former Floridian and Seattleite, R.M. Carpus now writes fantasy and science fiction from Philadelphia, her birthplace and current home base. She is co-founder of Impossible Things Publishing (ITP), a collaborative anthology project, and a student and tutor at Saint Joseph’s University. The aftermath following the tragic loss of her mother led her to return to her Catholic faith, which she today counts as her greatest gift and joy in life, along with her family, friends, and love for storytelling. She speaks a little French, dreams of living in the English countryside, and like most writers, runs on coffee. She’s happiest outdoors—especially in the Pacific Northwest—or cuddled up at home with her animals while reading, writing, or watching classic movies.

Title: Frenzy
Author: Casey L. Bond
Genre: YA Dystopian, Horror
Editor: Stacy Sanford/ The Girl with the Red Pen
Cover Designer: Fated Creative/ Melanie Deem
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
After the world was ravaged by a viral apocalypse, Blackwater is one of the only colonies that remains. The survivors came together to create this safe haven. Nestled between a fierce river and a city’s flood wall, the well-being of its residents hangs on a long-established treaty with the night-walkers. Sounds simple enough, but lately, the people of Blackwater have been dying, and the humans believe the night-walkers are to blame.

Porschia Grant starves for more than her parents’ affection. Forced to enter the rotation, she will be given extra food rations in exchange for becoming a vampire’s breakfast and dinner for a week. The rotation has an extra responsibility as well:  leave the colony and enter the dangerous forest to hunt for food. A night-walker will protect the hunters from the infected that roam the woods. But with the treaty hanging in the balance and tension between the humans and vampires rising, anything could happen in the darkness.

What would you do if your only chance at survival might kill you?

Only it’s not humans I found, but the Fae.

A seemingly impossible task when Rune, a cursed, pain in the ass Fae warrior is assigned to train me. He’s hellbent on freeing his beloved princess and I’m desperate to save Tor. But no matter how hard we snarl during training; we can’t stay away from each other.

My name is Ava Mendoza, and I am a species traitor.
They came hoping to find a new home after their own planet was destroyed, but Earth was dying as well, and most humans saw their arrival as an invasion. Now, two decades later, the Veilorians have been banished to the District, a fenced-in area on the outskirts of the last known livable land on Earth. Most people do their best to pretend they don’t exist, but not everyone. There are humans, like my cousin, who see them for what they are. Despite the threat of disownment, she married a Veilorian, and now she, too, lives in the District.
Even before I met Finn, I was determined to stand up for what was right, but from the moment I laid eyes on him, we had a connection I’ve never experienced before. But with the election of a new and radical mayor on the horizon, tensions are high, and people are calling for change. They want to make my cousin’s marriage illegal and punish any human who goes into the District, but I refuse to back down from this fight. No matter the cost.

Told from Rhett’s point of you.
If Ava could see herself, the sight would have stopped her cold. Even Rhett was afraid. The hair on his arm rose. His goosebumps had goosebumps.
Ava had absorbed Mia’s energy. Blue light zapped and crackled not only through her, but around her like an electric storm. She became the lightning and wind, uplifting everything around her. The ground shook, walls trembled, and lightbulbs popped like gunshots. Centered in the brilliant phenomenon, she was Mother Nature about to unleash her wrath.
“Holy mother of all mothers.” Ozzie’s jaw slackened. “Do you see what I see, Rhett?”
“Yes,” Rhett said with a grim smile. “That’s my girl. I hope she gives them hell.”
Mia stood her ground. Rhett gave her credit for courage but she was a fool. Rhett knew Ava would make the right choice, so he didn’t try to stop her.
“Well, what’s it going to be, Mia?” Ava’s voice sounded as grand as her display of powers.
Rhett was learning something new about Ava every time she pushed herself, though he worried she might burst. He had no idea how her ability worked.
“I’m not going to apologize, you freak.”
Oh, no. She did not just say that.
“Uh oh.” Ozzie crouched lower. “Ava hates that word.”
Four massage tables zoomed across the room at a flick of Ava’s finger, boxing in the girls.
“Like this is going to stop me. Pathetic,” Mia spat.
Mia didn’t know when to quit. Ava didn’t want to hurt her, but she kept punching Ava with insults. Rhett had to do something.
Ava’s hands trembled. Her body was shutting down.
“No, they weren’t intended to hurt you, and they certainly won’t hold you in.” Ava shook her thin shoulders. “That was a distraction—this will do the damage.” Ava flicked her index finger. A metal tray flew off the counter like a rocket and collided with Mia’s face, knocking her head to the table. “The table is to break your fall, idiot. I was being generous. What about you, Ella? Want to walk with me or be carried out like your friend?”
Ella blanched and softened her stance, giving the impression of compliance. Her voice squeaked like a frightened mouse. “I was going to cooperate. I swear I was. I’ll walk.”
Poor girl. She shook with her arms crossed over her midsection.
The door slid open.
“Why are you all wet? What happened here?” Naomi cursed, her eyes darting around the wrecked room. “Are you guys okay?”
Ozzie pointed to Ava, gawking at her as if she was a goddess. “She did it. It was pretty awesome.”
Tamara laughed. “I should have been here earlier to see it all. The sounds did not do it justice.”
Reyna smoothed a hand over her face. “We’re in so much trouble. Zen’s not going to like this. It’s a good thing this room had no windows.”
“Well, at least we’re all going down together.” Rhett planted a kiss on his girl and supported her with an arm around her waist. When she’d stopped the bullets at Mitch’s apartment, she’d fainted. “You okay?”
Rhett gripped her shaky hand. So cold. All the warmth flushed out of her when Helix had diminished or had burned out. Or however her power worked.
“Yeah. Just a little lightheaded. At least I didn’t black out. I got a little carried away.”
“A little. Just a little.” Rhett chuckled to lighten the mood.
“Are you and Oz okay?” She examined him. “You’re wet.”
“Oz and I are fine. Do you want a change of clothes? We could try to find—”
“No. Let’s get out of here.”
Rhett was worried about her. How much could her body take?
Ava had practiced every spare second. Anyone else would be wiped out, but maybe someone like her didn’t need a lot of time to recover. If Helix could replenish her quickly, then perhaps it was all good.
“Come on. Someone want to help me drag this lunatic?” Ozzie’s shoes squeaked and squashed through two inches of water as he headed toward Mia. “Yup, Zen is going to flip out. Can we pretend it didn’t happen? Or do one of you girls have the power to put everything back together? Why can’t I have that kind of power? Why am I talking and nobody is answering me?”
“‘Cause you talk too much, Ozwald.” Rhett grabbed Mia’s other arm and hauled her up with Ozzie’s help.
Ozzie’s mouth scrunched together into a pout. “Ozzie. It’s Ozzie or Oz.”
How Rhett loved to mess with him, and Rhett knew Ozzie liked it, too, since he did the same to Rhett. It was the way they were.
