Bad Day for the Home Team

Bad Day for the Home Team

by Alex O’Meara

What makes a man walk into a restaurant on a bright, beautiful Memorial Day afternoon in a small Arizona town, pull out a gun and shoot forty people before killing himself?

That’s what Sam Tryor is trying to figure out. Only he’s trying to figure it out from beyond the grave. Instead of a who-dun-it, this mystery is a what-made him-do-it. With the help of a gorgeous reporter, a world-weary cop, and his brother, Sam seeks the reason for his horrific crime, and his search leads him to a conclusion that is as disturbing for what it reveals about us as it is shocking for what it reveals about him.

 

Tough Enough

Tough Enough

by Sarah H. Baker

Jackie is on the run; she has no time for romance. Matt has other ideas–there’s something about the spunky biker that has him head over heels.

They come from two completely different worlds, and hers has danger in it. Is Matt tough enough to cope?

The 12 Quilts of Christmas

In the air there’s a feeling of…murder?

Harriet Truman is looking forward to creating happy Christmas memories with her husband James and their new foster son Luke. She and the rest of the Loose Threads are also delighted to see their special quilts displayed throughout the downtown in festive store windows.

But a shocking murder disrupts the joy of the season, and when another body turns up, and then Harriet and Luke only just manage to escape a black-clad attacker, it’s clear all isn’t holly-jolly in Foggy Point.

And then there’s Harriet’s new horse…

New Release – Arcane Imprint – Moordragon’s Illustrated Grimoire

Moordragon’s Illustrated Grimoire

by Bob Hobbs

Moordragon's Illustreated Grimoire

In 1645, witch-hunters raided and burned the village of Mithewinter to the ground. The inhabitants, all branded as witches and warlocks, were hanged.

Moordragon, one of the village elders, buried his magical Grimoire beneath his home where it was unearthed a century later.

Over the next 263 years, the Grimoire changed hands numerous times until it became the property of an occult book collector who published its mysterious contents.

Contents that hold a dark secret that will be revealed in an upcoming graphic novel…if you can find the clues.

New Release – Otherworlds Imprint – Madness in Manatas

Madness in Manatas

by Roberta Rogow

Madness in Manatas by Roberta Rogow

This holiday is no vacation

Ned Cooper had made plenty of enemies with his loud vocal attacks on every religion that wasn’t his, but it didn’t seem to Halvar that was enough to justify a knife in the back. Nevertheless, there he is—dead as one of his own barrels. Then Guardsman Zoltan meets a similar fate, and one with even more suspects given his protection racket on the docks and his constant harassment of the women in the souk.

Are these murders personal, or might they be connected to the muskets the captain of the Belle Fleur was smuggling into Manatas? Was Master Albrecht making gunpowder for those guns? Will Halvar still have a job after his contract expires on New Year’s Day?

The intrepid Dane is once again knee-deep in corpses and on the wrong end of pointed weapons. Can he solve all the mysteries before his term of office ends? And what will he do, stuck in Nova Mundum, if someone doesn’t renew his contract?”

The Saga of Halvar the Hireling – Book 6

New Release – Thresholds Imprint – The Crown of Zeus

The Crown of Zeus

by Christine Norris

The Crown of Zeus

 

Not the best way to win friends…

The sleepover is intended to cement Megan’s new friendship with Rachel, Claire, and Harriet. They would do the usual stuff—talking till the wee hours, painting each other’s nails, gossiping. The Parthenon, the huge manor she and her father live in, is even supposed to be haunted so…seance!

But Megan stumbles on a loose hearthstone, revealing an old diary and a mysterious key. Before the night is out, the girls are on a dangerous journey into the myths of ancient Greece, and Megan’s job is to make sure everyone gets back alive despite gorgons, sea monsters, and sphinxes.

No pressure.
