New Indie Book Release:
The Unnamed Girl - Mike H. Mizrahi
Historical Fiction (270 Pages - November 2018)

About the Book

The Unnamed Girl (Mike H. Mizrahi)
Click to Read an Excerpt
When Confederate Private Jonathan “Woody” Woodard scours the battlefield of Port Republic, Virginia, an innocent voice beckons him. He picks up a gold-cased ambrotype and gazes at the image of a little girl. Over time, the photograph becomes Woody’s only respite from the nighttime demons of war that torture him. His permanent renewal is somehow dependent upon returning the gold case to the family of the dead bluecoat, whose haversack yields its treasure when he hits the ground.

Woody is captured, and months later a prison escape during a North Ohio blizzard claims his foot. The quest to find the girl begins. Woody enlists the help of the widow Rebecca Johnston in exchange for free labor around her Southern Ohio farm. He soon learns she is an abolitionist and conductor on the Underground Railroad. Complications arise: love enters the equation, but an insurmountable lie stands between them. Does Woody come clean with his secret? Will he put his search on hold to help Rebecca rescue a freedman and his son, sent to Lumpkin’s notorious slave jail in Richmond through the Reverse Underground Railroad?

New Indie Book Release: War-Born (Aaron D. Schneider)


New Indie Book Release:
War-Born - Aaron D. Schneider
Military Fantasy (356 Pages - October 2018)

War-Born is a fantasy story rooted in the very real experience of the modern soldier, this book lets the reader experience a story that is both grand and mythic in scale yet personal and poignant in delivery.

"[...] Aaron's writing reminds us that we read for the journey, not the destination. Shades of Tolkien can be glimpsed in this beautifully written, beautifully imagined epic war-story. It's Call of Duty meets Lord of the Rings. If you love military fantasy, don't miss this." - Reader Review


About the Book

War-Born (Aaron D. Schneider)
Click to Read an Excerpt
Two-thousand years of war just met its match.

For Lieutenant Lucius “Luce” Bollham, things have been going from bad to worse since the caves of Afghanistan. First, ostracized by his brothers in arms, now the possibility of being tried as a war criminal. You’d think getting away from it all would be a relief, but where you escape to matters.

Luce's “escape” takes him to the magical Twilit Kingdom of Other-Realm where he finds himself thrust into the midst of a war nearly two thousand years old.
And he thought Afghanistan was tough...

Caught between mind-bending sorcery, ancient grudges, and intrigues among aeon-old beings, Luce must gather the forces of the kingdom and revolutionize their idea of combat before enemy legions march across the land. Witchery and swordplay pair with assault rifles and asymmetrical warfare to stop an adversary who seeks nothing less than utter conquest.

Oh, and there is a woman––when is there not? Except she's a centuries-old warrior-sorceress with blood under her nails and fire on her lips. Bryth is just the kind of gal you want around in a world where curses can kill and dark things stir.

In the midst of all the madness, Luce has to decide what it is he is actually fighting for. Out of the frying pan and into the inferno, as they say.

About the Book

No Ordinary Duke (Sophie Barnes)
Click to Read an Excerpt
He’s everything she’s trying to avoid…But somehow precisely what she needs…

Caleb Crawford doesn’t want to be a duke. He’d much rather build houses for a living. So when fate disrupts his peaceful life and burdens him with the responsibilities of a newly inherited title, he does what any sensible man would do by fleeing London, disguising himself as a laborer, and seeking refuge with three young spinsters who need his help with a leaky roof.

Ruined by a marquess who promised her the world, Mary Clemens has sworn to avoid marriage forever. Instead, she intends to live out her days with her friends and the orphaned children they’ve taken into their care. But when Mr. Crawford comes knocking, Mary finds herself in real danger of risking heartbreak all over again. Especially when she discovers that he’s not at all what he seems.

3 Tips to Indie SUCCESS from 3 Successful Authors


Asking successful Indie Authors:
3 TIPS TO SUCCESS FROM 3 SUCCESSFUL AUTHORS

Indie Author Tip
We’re a few years into the rocket ship that is independent publishing, so most of us have read countless articles and books on the ‘how to’ and ‘what not to’ and ‘try this’ types of tutelages. The Indie Author has become a successful one-man and one-woman show. We’re educated in the fields of production and marketing. So of course many of these tips and articles have proven effective! But because our industry has grown with so many success stories out there, we can now start asking deeper questions on the motivation that has driven these successful authors.
As cover designer, illustrator and writer I’ve worked with countless independent authors and publishers. On this journey with them all I’ve seen some authors enjoy incredible achievements.
However, how do we measure an author’s success? Is it the amount of books sold, awards won – or is it the mere fact that so many authors have to overcome various challenges to complete a book, or even series?

‘Success’ is NOT just one thing. Its many things.

In my humble opinion, I would say it’s all of the above. ‘Success’ is NOT just one thing. Its many things.
It has been my privilege to work with these three authors, from diverse genres, who have gone onto publishing numerous books, won awards and even kick-started a whole product range!
So I asked them this question: “How did you go from ‘Wanting to write a book’ to now having published and doing so much more?”
All three answered generously (and authentically), and it’s my honor to share their insights with all authors out there, new or established. Each of these answers resonate with me, and I KNOW every author will find an echoing thought and driving inspiration.


HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE YOUR WRITING SUCCESS?

Tweet-worthy: “It’s not about reaching the peak. It’s about the journey to get there and then the journey to the next one.” – A.J. Culey

I think for much of my life I was waiting for the stars to align – for me to have the energy, the time, the inspiration AND the motivation all in the same moment. This is how years passed with plenty of ideas and tons of story starts but no finishes. Eventually I realized the stars would never align, at least not perfectly, for me to ever feel like this was the one moment I had to write. And that was my big lesson – realizing the moment had always been and always would be now.

So I started taking classes and I joined writers’ communities and I began to take my writing seriously. I think that's the big thing. We have to take ourselves seriously, as artists, as writers, as creative thinkers. And in that process of taking myself, my craft and my dreams seriously, one book led to another and another until one day I woke to the realization that I was an award-winning author with twelve published books in three different genres and several more on the way.

But to say “I woke” to that realization is to somehow imply that it just happened, which really isn’t the case at all. The truth is I invested the time and money in developing my career. I focused on the goal, invested financially in amazing book covers and illustrations, not to mention promotions, and committed my time to writing quality stories. I just plain did the hard work. And I think the big thing for me moving forward is to keep doing that hard work. I can’t stop to rest on my laurels. I have to constantly work at developing my craft and reaching for that next great story.

It’s not about reaching the peak. It’s about the journey to get there and then the journey to the next one.

About the Book

Off the Ice (L.P. Dover)
Click to Read an Excerpt
He’s always made the scoring plays, both on and off the ice, but this time he has a new goal … the one for Meghan’s heart.

I’m Justin Davis, all-star center for the Charlotte Strikers. For years, I chased the spotlight, not only with hockey, but through television as well. That’s why I decided to play the bachelor on Rich and Single. Unfortunately, I was stuck with a fake fiancée from hell who I couldn’t stand to be around. Now that our contract is up, I’m allowed to do whatever I want, with whoever I want. I plan to take full advantage of my newfound freedom.

After being on the show, people don’t recognize me for hockey anymore, even with just winning the Stanley Cup for my team. That’s why I’m spending the off season in a remote cabin in Wyoming where the chances of people knowing me are slim. Space is what I need, but when a down to earth beauty needs help on her ranch, I can’t resist. Meghan Taylor is exactly what I’ve been looking for, even though I’m not the kind of man she wants.

Getting her to see the real me has its challenges, but the more time I spend with her, the easier it is for her to see that I’m not the same guy she knows from TV. Being away from the media is one thing, but as soon as I’m back in the spotlight, I’m afraid it’ll change what we have. I don’t want to lose her, but I also can’t hide away in Wyoming forever. It’s a choice I’m not ready to make.

Click to Read an Excerpt
I'm Lindsay, and I'm a teenage visionary with a few big problems. My mother is way overprotective. My best friend is an airhead. My boyfriend joined the Army.

And I can see murders before they happen.

At the age of eight, I realized that I'm a visionary - that I'm "sighted," as my mom calls it. She tells me I need to learn how to manage my ability. She insists that it's a gift.

That's so not true. I think she's just trying to make me feel better about it. I mean, I already have enough to contend with. Like surviving the continuing drama that is my best friend Sara, and finding the time to be with my boyfriend Scott, all while trying to get myself graduated from my small-town high school so I can go to college and have even more to contend with.

My visions of grisly deaths - past, present, and future - kind of complicate things, especially since I'm still learning how to handle them. Every now and then, I see them wrong.
So while Mom calls it my "gift," I disagree. If this is a gift, then I'd like to give it back.

Evander must find a replacement. But, despite the fact that his master was a nearly crippled, illiterate, farmhand, Evander staunchly refuses to consider anyone but a strong, young male for an apprentice.

New Indie Book Release: Noël - Of Memories and Sleep (Benjamin Boudreaux)


New Indie Book Release:
Noël: Of Memories and Sleep - Benjamin Boudreaux
YA Fantasy Adventure (300 Pages - August 2018)

Noël: Of Memories and Sleep draws heavily on Cajun and Creole culture, which have rarely (accurately) been explored in most media. The food, the music, the language, the folklore, and just the general way of life are all portrayed in this novel.


About the Book

Noël - Of Memories and Sleep (Benjamin Boudreaux)
Click to Read an Excerpt
The town of Beauséjour, located in Southern Louisiana, is home to many Cajuns and Creoles, who are happy to spend their days fishing and crabbing; tilling and sowing; eating, drinking, and laughing. But this town is also home to sinister secrets, which are soon to be unearthed by a child of thirteen summers by the name of Noël Broussard, as well as his friends Évangéline Lejeune, Marc Lejeune, and Amédé Fontenot.

Many strange and terrible things occur, such as denizens visited in their dreams by a nightmarish entity; children selectively spirited from their homes by a demonic creature; and telltale signs of a wolf-like being infecting hapless wayfarers. These are spirits straight out of the traditional oral folklore of the Cajuns and Creoles of Acadiana – and they are very real! But there is something linking them all together – the key to everything – and it will prove integral for Noël as he struggles to solve the mystery and end the terror that plagues his hometown.

This story – the first in a series – delves into the subject of memory, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of fear, anger, sadness, and failure. Noël will have to learn (and accept) many things about himself if he is to succeed.
