New Indie Book Release:
Halfway Bitten - Terry Maggert
Paranormal / Urban Fantasy (238 Pages - February 2016)

Halfway Bitten: Halfway is a fictional town on one of the gorgeous lakes that span the area. It’s a tourist haven in the summer, frigid in the winter, and there’s a current of magic that makes Halfway a lot more interesting than your usual sleepy village.

- "The writing is superb, the plot engaging and fast-paced, the characters well fleshed out, and the world solidly built, but not overdone which leaves room for the reader to use their imagination to fill in the rest. All said, a great novel in the Halfway Witchy series." - Reader Review

When clowns, vampires, and corpses start piling up in town, Carlie has to break away from her boyfriend, Wulfric, to bring her witchy skills to the table- or grill, as the case may be.

Spells will fly. Curses will rain.

Amidst it all, Carlie will make waffles, protect her town, and find out if a man from the distant past can join her in happy ever after.

With love and honor at stake, Carlie has no peer.

About the Book

Claira Robbins technically didn't exist until two weeks before she began teaching at Grassland Academy. Her new identity may have given her the credentials she needed for the job, but it hasn't helped one whit to soothe her frayed nerves caused by years on the run. It also didn't come with instructions on how to handle three ravenous cowboy brothers intent on seducing her.

Six years after losing their wife, the McLendon brothers are focused on running their family ranch, Falcon Ridge, and raising their rambunctious twin boys. They've never believed they could find another woman with which to share their hearts and family.

When Matt and his twin, Mason, meet their sons' classy new teacher, hope and love aren't the only things that spring back to life. Matt is convinced she was Heaven sent to heal their family. Mason hopes he's right, but knows they have a bigger problem than convincing Claira to take a chance on their unconventional family; a much bigger, surly, older brother kind of problem.

After their wife died, Grey McLendon planned to live the rest of his life comfortably numb from the neck down, even if it killed him...and it just might if he can't reconcile his guilt and desire for Claira before her treacherous past catches up with her.

About the Book

It began on the Navajo Indian Reservation when a fourteen year old boy, George Tokay, witnessed and reported the murder of a Caucasian boy his own age. Kelliher and his team of FBI agents solved that crime, which led to the freedom of thirty boys who were abducted off safe suburban streets and held in captivity, some for more than two years. The FBI thought the boys were safe and so did their parents. After all, arrest warrants were served and members of the human trafficking ring were arrested. That is, except for three dangerous men with absolutely nothing to lose.

These three men arrange for a handsome reward if fourteen year old Brett, one of the boys who had been held captive, is killed. Brett has no idea that he, his younger brother, and his friend, another former captive, are targets. But more than anyone else, these three men vow revenge on George, whom they blame for forcing them to run and go into hiding. What was to be a fun-filled vacation with his newly adopted family, turns into a nightmare and ends where it started, back on the Navajo Indian Reservation high up on a mesa held sacred by George and his grandfather.

Outnumbered and out gunned, George is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, but can he protect his father and his brothers from these dangerous men before that happens? Can he save them without knowing who these men are or where they might be? Or when they might attack? Can George trust his friends whom he reaches out to for help? Is he prepared for betrayal that leads to his heartbreak and possible death?

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "A wonderfully crafted and accomplished debut. Compelling, beautiful language. Protagonist Ruth is an intelligent and beguiling narrator and yet there is a fragility there that connects the reader to her from the onset. I was captured from the opening scene. " - Debz Hobbs-Wyatt

- "[...] A beautifully written story with wonderful attention to detail. It is a troubled tale detailing the lives of two sisters as they come to terms with life after the death of their mother. The thing I liked about this is the fact that each of the characters is flawed, without being one-dimensional." - Sara Knight

- "Ms. Hogarth is a very talented writer. Her prose is beautiful and melodic. The descriptive passages pull you into the scene. The reader can feel the sun-baked aridity of the Australian desert, see the red kangaroos and their young leaping across the land, smell the rain and humidity of England, and hear the deafening stillness when Ruth sits alone in her cottage. Ruth’s life takes her through fear, pain, regret, love, loss, rage, and redemption. The characters and the story feel true to life. The atmosphere is rich. The tale is told unhurriedly." - Christine Terrell
