Go on a journey of redemption with THE NAMELESS DWARF. This is a set of five novels that tell the epic tale of a dwarf who is set on saving his own kind who he tried to wipe out.
THE NAMELESS DWARF is a wonderful five book fantasy series that fans of Game of Thrones and The Hobbit would enjoy.
The series started as a short story by the author to submit to science fiction/fantasy magazines, but soon grew into the series it is now. Oliver Reed would star in this book.
This book will be available on April 25th.
I was born in the South East of England in the late sixties, just in time to get a good sniff at the Summer of Love. I spent most of my childhood immersed in fantasy and SF novels as well as Marvel comics.
Since 2011 I have been a full-time author and editor. I am married to Paula and have two children, Theo and Cordelia. My chief influences as a writer are: David Gemmell, R.E. Howard, Lin Carter, L. Sprague de Camp, Stephen Donaldson, Joe Abercrombie, and Mary Doria Russell.
I love Italian food, so long as it’s served with red wine. I’m a huge fan of EWTN. Other than that I love old school Doctor Who and the remake of BSG. I’ll listen to anything from Neil Young to Kiss, to Mozart’s Requiem or The Goons.
In THE EXEMEUS, find yourself in an epic battle for what is yours no matter what the odds. When the Treptonian Government takes over Earth, Hyalee and Dephon need each other to reclaim the planet. Unfortunately, time and space separate them and the Treptonian government will do anything to keep them apart, even if it means elimininating them… permanently.
Readers who loved Divergent, Angelfall, and the love of Twilight will love THE EXEMEUS.
THE EXEMEUS was based upon the author’s thoughts about having a book that chronicled a person’s life from birth to death. Jennifer Lawrence would make a wonderful Hyalee.
This is available on Kindle and Nook for $0.99 on April 25th.
Singleton stopped the vehicle and hopped out. “Come on,” he said, leading the way through the brush. What else could I do? I jumped out of the car and followed. Smoke was billowing through the air, and it took me a few moments to realize I seemed strangely immune to any effects of the fire. Singleton had stopped inches from the flames. “You’re way to close!” I shouted–and I had to shout to be heard, because the fire was roaring. “You’re going to burn to death!” He turned and looked at me, and without looking away from me for a second he took a deep breath and stepped backward into the flames. For a moment I couldn’t move, couldn’t say anything. It came to me in a flash that he had decided he didn’t want to live if we couldn’t be together. Was he insane? “No!” I screamed as I rushed forward. I had no idea what I was going to do, but I had to do something. I loved him. I could survive without touching him, seeing him, hearing him, but I couldn’t live without knowing he was alive. I ran frantically toward the flames, trying to locate him in their glowing embers. Instinctively, I knew what I had to do. I thought cooling thoughts, water-filled thoughts as I yelled his name, my voice cracking to be heard over the deafening noise of the inferno. A strong hand reached out, grabbed my wrist, and pulled me into the fire.
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.
Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.
As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.
We write at the table in the dining room. We love the TV show One Tree Hill- hated to see it go. We love all kinds of music, except polka and yodeling. We love to travel, to lounge, and to waste time: we rarely get a chance to do any of those things (maybe when we become bestsellers.
MEAT CAMP is a fast-paced horror that will have you up all night. Adapted from Scott Nicholson’s original screenplay, MEAT CAMP is a heart thumping adventure where a strange infection has taken over causing the campers to start a violent bloodbath. The infection is not only causing death, it’s bringing the dead back to life.
MEAT CAMP is a definite must for lovers of slasher horror novels!

J.T. WARREN AND SCOTT NICHOLSON
Scott Nicholson is the international bestselling author of more than 30 books, including The Home, After: The Shock, Liquid Fear, The Red Church, and more.
What happens when an honest man has to choose between the hangman’s noose or living a lie? Cole Richards is wanted for bank robbery, but Daisy Gardner thinks he’s the new marshal–and she’s determined to marry him! MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS is a witty and delightful romance that will have your heart singing!
Fans of Linda Lael Miller and Maggie Osborne will like MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS.
MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS came about from the author’s research about dime novels. She thought to herself wouldn’t it be a good story to a dime store owner’s daughter be obsessed over a dime store novel’s lady detective. Tom Selleck and Reese Witherspoon would make a good Cole and Daisy – don’t you think?
This is available on April 25th.
Stay calm and think. So Daisy’s sister was the woman who’d shot him. What lousy luck. He had to get the hell out of here, especially since Miss Daisy thought he was the town’s new marshal. He didn’t even know what town.
There’s nothing quite like growing up in Owyhee County, Idaho, to fuel a young girl’s imagination. Jacquie Rogers lived on a dairy farm six miles southwest of Homedale. Stories popped into her head while she fed calves, or hoed beets, or shucked corn. And so it’s only reasonable that she should end up writing western historical romance full of dashing heroes and despicable bad guys set in the Wild West, which was and always will be Owyhee County, Idaho. It’s where the Old West really happened. Much Ado About Marshals (Hearts of Owyhee #1) won the RttA Award for Best Western Historical Romance in 2012. Other books in the series: Much Ado About Madams, and Much Ado About Mavericks. Coming soon, book 4: Much Ado About Miners.

I’ve always had an interest in fairies, mermaids, vampires, and, in truth, just about any type of fantasy or myth. When stories of these beings continued to entertain my thoughts, to the point of almost haunting me, I decided it was time to start writing them down. FATEFUL was my first finished work, and FRACTUED was my second. I’ve published 5 books, and 1 cookbook. I have several other books in the plans. All of them will have elements of fantasy in them, along with a romantic twist.
Favorite Food: I love Crème Brule topped with lots of fresh berries.
Favorite Place to Write: I write in my office surrounded by artwork of fairies, much of which I painted myself
Favorite Music: I love listening to bands like Black Lab and Imagine Dragons.
Favorite TV show: At the moment, my favorite TV show is Vampire Diaries.

Fans of the Walking Dead will enjoy CONTAMINATION : THE ONSET.
CONTAMINATION was inspired by the town of Buford, NY with it’s population of one and the sale of the town by it’s lone resident. Bryan Cranston would make a wonderful Sam Cook.
I’ve been reading and writing for as long as I can remember. In fact, my mother recalls prying books out of my hands in order to get me to do anything else. For me, writing has always been a natural extension of my life experiences and travels—and I try my best to impart that in my work. My hope is that others get half the enjoyment in reading my books that I get in writing them!

Most of my teeth were pointed, curved, sharp against my tongue. Furthermore, if I believed the sensations, there were two full rows of them on both the top and bottom of my mouth, which slid neatly between one another when closed.
Hey, I’m Nick. I’m a fan of anything speculative, whether science fiction, fantasy, supernatural or otherwise. Mostly I like to write for intelligent young audiences, and those who are still young in their own opinion (or want to feel young). My focus as a writer is on providing deeply immersive entertainment. I love the sense of being totally absorbed in and carried away by something. That’s the experience I hope to provide in my novels, and all my creative works. I also write musical theatre, and hope to move into screenplays at some stage. Splice Children is my debut science fiction novel. I truly hope you enjoy it.
Favourite Animes: Ghost in the Shell, Steins;Gate, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Naruto. Also Hayao Miyazaki films.
Favourite Foods: Pizza and ice cream. (Not together.)
Favourite Place to Write: Parks and gardens (so long as there’s internet access!)
Favourite Music: Dance/trance electronica (anything that either takes you away or alternatively gets your adrenaline pumping); dark slightly-emo rock (yes, I admit it); swing; and GOOD pop.

When he looked up his heart raced. There was no denying it. In their few days together he felt more for Avalon than he ever had for Guinevere. Without thinking he stepped closer, intimately close and his nose touched the side of her cheek. “Avalon,” he whispered, his breath uneven, torn between duty and the feelings that had been unleashed when they kissed. “Choose me, Arthur,” she whispered impossibly soft. Looking up, her green eyes pled. As Arthur lingered, the pain grew even more acute causing his eyes to water. “I … can’t,” he finally said. “I have to protect Camelot.” He took a small step back. “Leodegrance expects me to marry Guinevere.”
Annette Mackey, B.A. Music, is an American author and musician. Her works include three novels, two plays, and hundreds of musical compositions. She lives in Idaho with her husband and children.
I tend to love simple foods. Hands down, my favorite things to eat are tomatoes with salt. MmMm! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. I also love chopped tomatoes stirred in with cottage cheese. And a touch of chocolate once a day doesn’t hurt either.
