Another start to a gorgeous week is here. I'll be up to my typical rounds of no good this week – maybe even more so than usual. I mean someone has to keep bossman and our authors in line, might as well be me, right? Be sure to send me extra chocolate – I'll need it this week!

This week, we have another two new series launching. One is in the Oriceran Universe, the other is a fantasy stand-alone series (for all of you saying it's part of Skharr, I have it on VERY good authority that it is not – I ASKED to be positive.) 

All of our covers this week are on fire! Don't they look amazing? You can't get better looking covers, don't you agree?

I have 7 amazing books launching this week and one of these released this morning!

Winland Underwood has been running and hiding most of her life. Today is the day she will stop and stand her ground.

The half Light Elf and half Witch has led a band of magical refugees to the Ozarks where they can finally put down roots.

Title: Undead Alternatives
Series: Demon Codex Book 3
Release Date: 06/21/2022

Daemons, Necromancers, and Yetis. It's been one tough year for Philadelphia.

Professor Watson – with major assistance from friends and allies – defeated and destroyed the lich Malifa in a titanic battle, securing the known fragments of the Demon Codex along the way. It looked like things might finally get back to normal.

But that would just be too easy

Complications arise when a lawyer informs Watson and his girlfriend Trixie that Malifa has left them a fortune in his will, as well as more than a few questions to keep them occupied.

And then a new professor arrives.

Without consulting Watson, his Dean has brought in a guest lecturer to his department of demonic languages, one with expertise in controversial magic capable of exploiting infinite parallel timelines. Having just defeated Malifa, will this new mage be a potential ally for Watson or a fresh danger, and are her loyalties as divided as the fabric of reality she controls?

It would be more than enough for Watson and his magic-wielding friends to solve Malifa’s riddles and keep an eye on the newcomer, but other powers have begun to circle, secret societies and government entities who are playing a vaster game from the shadows.

Join Professor Derrick Watson in a magical confrontation that threatens to shake not just his world, but countless parallel timelines as well!

Title: Whispers From Below
Series: Rise of the Grandmaster Series Book 2
Release Date: 06/21/2022

The reward for good work is…more work.

Note: This book was previously published as part of the megabook, Rise of the Grandmaster.

Tim continues to adjust to his life in the game.

Forming a group with Shadowlilly and Cassie is a no-brainer.

Figuring out the dynamics of his new team is only the start. Tim desperately tries to get to the bottom of who The Man in The Orange Sah is working for.

There’s still the matter of his original plan to play the game and get paid.

That could prove tricky, and making an enemy of the cardinal by working directly for the high priest wasn't in the plan.

Tim isn’t about to let a little thing like running for his life get in the way of achieving his goals.

The Goddess Eternia has a different goal in mind…

She sends the team on a quest that could bring Tim’s time playing The Etheric Coast to a messy end.

Now Tim and his new team have to get their act in gear if they want to survive the dungeon and its half-woman, half-spider occupant.

Title: Night Of Sorrow
Series: Gallows Hill Academy Series Book 1
Release Date: 06/22/2022

Land on my feet? But I’m a raven, not a cat.

Mom tossed me out of the nest with five dollars and the clothes on my back. Why? I visited my snitch brother in Danvers Sanitarium.

Pariah or not, I refuse to abandon my favorite sibling.

Did I forget to mention mom made me homeless on the night before my first day of high school? The principal took pity, but she stuck me in the boarding house with a nosy roommate.

I refuse to flunk out of high school like the rest of my family. Breaking the cycle is a tall order.

Three of my classmates decide to grief me because of my shady family. The others are part of an exclusive and mysterious clique. My only friend is Ed, a scrawny medium I rescued from a gang of psychic bullies.

At least he doesn’t mind my obsession with ghosts.

How will I get through the first month at this rowdy school, let alone three whole years?
