Life is winding down for French Canadian immigrant Rose Dowd. She isn’t fighting the flow until Fate forces her to gear up for yet another chapter. Much like her adopted country, as it stakes out a new international role in World War II, Rose must reinvent herself. Quickly. Before she can move forward, however, she needs to absorb lessons from her past, by channeling her former persona as the spunky Quarryman’s girl, by reexamining her culture shock and parental abandonment, and by mending a long-standing rift with her sister Isabelle.

Integral to Rose’s journey are her sharp-tongued sister Izzy; her perpetually worried son Vince, a resourceful shipyard worker; her long dead Mรฉtis mentor Mรจre Agathe; her bright and bubbly, but sickly granddaughter Netty; and Nate, “The Ragman’s Grandson,” a club-footed, pre-law student dreading his future. Follow these unforgettable characters from the 1880s to the 1940s, Travel from the hard-scrabble pig farms of Quebec to the granite quarries of Quincy (Massachusetts); from the frozen St. Lawrence River to the deep-channel Fore River, launching pad for some of World War II’s most famous warships.

About the Author. . .

Melanie Forde grew up hearing fanciful tales about her voyageur forefathers swaggering through 17th century Quebec, while her Mรฉtis foremothers parsed the mysteries of the natural world. It was only a matter of time before she mined those memories for a novel. It was high time that she set her characters in the gritty hometown that started her own journey: Quincy, Massachusetts. She’d like to think she inherited some of the earlier generations’ resilience, joie de vivre and attunement with Mother Nature. She credits both her French Canadian and Irish ancestors with the storytelling gene that inspired four previous, character-driven novels. Although she now lives in the Virginia mountains, far from both Quebec and Quincy, she sometimes hears ghostly sled dogs howling softly amid the moonshadows that dapple the snow.

A Talisman Series Prequel

by Tam DeRudder Jackson

Genre: Paranormal Romance

A skilled warrior with a life-changing task...
Every warrior needs a talisman – but for Riley Sheridan, he cares more about partying with his buddies than finding the mate he’s supposed to bond with for life. That is, until a stunning raven-haired woman steps up to the keg and asks for a beer.

A fiery beauty with untapped powers...
Lynnette Montgomery came to the festival to relax, celebrate, and take her mind off her still-undiscovered magical powers. But after fate draws her to a suave and cocky warrior, she’s shocked to realize that she’s his fated talisman. But finding your mate is never supposed to be this easy.

And the wrath of a goddess bent on their demise.
Drawn by a ripple in the cosmos, the infamous goddess Morrigan sets her sights on the pair. She’s dead-set on stopping the next Sheridan from bonding to his talisman – and when they retreat to a remote cabin to complete the ritual, she sees her chance to strike. After the goddess kidnaps Riley, Lynette is thrust into a deadly battle with a seemingly impossible goal: to save him from a fate worse than death.

Bursting with all the pulse-pounding action and rich worldbuilding of a riveting fantasy adventure, this gripping prequel is a must-read for fans of Tam DeRudder Jackson’s Talisman Series, or as a starting point for your adventure into a world of modern-day Celtic warriors.

Deadly Sweethearts

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 2

My boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend came to town, and crazy doesn’t even begin to describe her.

Try seditious. Malicious. Murderous.

Except it’s me that gets pinned for the rash of murders in town while Hashiki’s out there making moves on my boyfriend.

With the help of a trio of far-too-sexy tiny faeries (oh yeah, faeries are real, people) I might stand a chance—if I can survive the attention of an old viking vampire who thinks we’re the next vamp power couple.

But seriously? He’s got the wrong girl. Sure, I’ve got big dreams, but that isn’t one of them.

And right now, I just want Philo back.

Seoul Demon

Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl Book 3

Just because I'm undead, doesn't mean I'm suddenly a ghost whisperer.

But if it'll convince my dad I'm still me, I'll go to Korea and do my best. I'd do anything for him to love me again, even if it means trying to convince my ancestors to quit haunting us.

And the task turns out to be as impossible as I feared—until the imugi hiding in my auntie’s garden offers me a deal. He’ll help put the ghosties to rest, if I help him become a real dragon.

It could have been fun. It should have been fun.

But when it costs me every person I love, even winning feels like losing.

When times get tough, get a dog. Werewolves, optional.

When the starving mutt showed up in my backyard, I thought he'd be the perfect distraction from the sorrow that’s plagued me all summer.

But Cheveyo's no ordinary dog and the more I help him uncover where he came from, the more we learn about the dark side of the supernatural world.

A world that I just outed in a viral video.

I always thought it would be cool to be famous, but this is definitely not what I had in mind.

Not exactly a recipe for success.

I might be small; I might be young; and I might not know much about what it means to be a vampire, but I’m not going to give Philo up without a fight.

I just hope it's enough.

#CoverReveal #Giveaway...The Lord's Gambit #Series Volume 1... #DarkEpic #Fantasy

Oracle of Life

The Lords' Gambit Series, Volume 1

by Katherine D. Graham

Genre: Dark Epic Fantasy

Six fallen lords. Three vengeful goddesses. And one mortal, damned to prophesy for them all.

An Exiled Oracle

Nariah, the Heiress of Ellonai, is dead. An exiled, desert-dwelling Doomsayer is all that remains within the shell of the powerful princess she once was.

A Heretic

She isn't sure which of her visions her people hate more: the one where the three benevolent goddesses they serve have decided to destroy the world, or the vision of six lords falling from the skies to save them.

The World's Only Hope

Stumbling across the very lords she's been seeing in her visions for years, only Nariah's accursed gift of Sight can aid the lords in their rebellion against the goddesses, and determine the fate of her world before it's turned to ash.

But does she even
want to save those who've wronged her?

A whole new take on mythological fantasy awaits in this thrilling dark epic by USA Today Bestselling Author Katherine D. Graham.

**This is not a standalone novel, though each book in
The Lords' Gambit series follows a different main character. Book two, Monk of Death, is available for pre-order now.**

Monk of Death

The Lords' Gambit Series, Volume 2

A life of service and deceit...

Kritinia's pilgrimage was never supposed to end with Death. After living her entire life disguised as a boy at the lord of Light's monastery, Kritinia's sacred journey was to end with her official initiation into the order of Royal Warrior Monks.

Uncover a dark secret...

Finding the lord of Light's capital city besieged, the unwitting monk stumbles into an eternal battle between the lords of Light and Dark, and at the mercy of the lord of Death himself. He knows the deepest, darkest secret of her lineage; a secret he intends to possess.

She never meant to marry a lord... or become one herself.

Caught in the crossfires of a war older than her kingdom and forced into a marriage with Death, only Kritinia's ascension to lordship will finally put the bitter feud between Dark and Light to rest.

But can a mere monk, whose life is built on secrets, lies, and death become the lord of Life?

You've never read a mythological fantasy quite like this dark epic by USA Today Bestselling Author Katherine D. Graham! Dive into this world of lords, love, and life today!

Keenan is just your typical, everyday graphic designer. He eats, he drinks, he loves... and he lives with hundreds of pesky ghosts that only he can see.

But how can he win her over when he knows his fun-loving “friends” won’t leave it alone? Introduce a horny succubus who visits him on a nightly basis, an angry entity that's trying to kill him, and a burly city cop who wants to arrest him, and you have a comedy of disasters that takes this reluctant psychic and turns him into an even more reluctant hero.
