Blood Web
by Gary Starta

Caitlin Diggs Series #1

FBI Special Agent Caitlin Diggs faces a paranormal killer when a crystal takes over a teen and leads her on a chase across the country. Empowering the teen with supernatural abilities, the crystal exacts revenge on descendants of soldiers responsible for the Sand Creek Massacre but it also has a taste for neurotransmitter serotonin which it needs from humans to continue its consciousness.

Agent Diggs is the only FBI agent in the bureau to consider extreme possibilities and surmises the teen has a means to track his victims via DNA.

A heart pounding cat and mouse game ensues as Diggs attempts to fool the teen she is his next victim but as she plays with fire, a former military man begins to see the crystal as the perfect ingredient for a mind control weapon. Because the crystal possesses sentience it can counter Diggs' plan for its demise and possibly exert mind control over her as well.

Can Diggs stop this biological internet from taking more victims, becoming a tool for mass mind control and resist the lure of its blood web?

Ruby's Story
by
Bill Cronin

Jack McNamara’s terminally ill Aunt Ruby has come to live her remaining days with him. She has a story that she wants her best-selling, author, nephew to write, a written legacy she wants to leave before she passes.

Bad Elephant Far Stream
by
Samuel Hawley

DescriptionBad Elephant Far Stream is an animal story for adults, a novel about the odyssey of a circus elephant, told from her own perspective, through her own eyes. Inspired by the true story of the circus elephant Topsy, it begins in the forests of Ceylon in the late 1860s with the capture of a baby elephant known to her own kind as Far Stream. She is taken to America and sent to the Adam Forepaugh Circus in Philadelphia. There, Far Stream embarks on a new life under the big top, appearing as “Topsy,” part of Forepaugh’s famed elephant dancing quadrille. She crisscrosses North America for thirty years with the circus, experiencing hardships, kidnapping, escapes and adventure. But when she comes to outweigh her keepers by a factor of forty—it’s hard not to hurt somebody. It’s hard not to be “bad.”

The Echoes of Love
by
Hannah Fielding

DescriptionGold medalist: Independent Publisher Book Awards - Romance Category.

'An epic love story that is beautifully told.' The Sun newspaper

Set in Venice, The Echoes of Love is a beautiful, poignant story of lost love and betrayal, unleashed passion and learning to love again, whatever the price.

Venetia Aston-Montague has escaped to Italy’s most captivating city to work in her godmother’s architectural practice, hoping to put a lost love behind her.

Paolo Barone, a charismatic entrepreneur who bears the scars of a tragic past, is endeavoring to build a new life for himself.

Venice on a misty carnival night brings these two people together.
When Venetia finds herself assigned to Paolo’s magnificent country home, love blossoms in the beautiful hills of Tuscany and the wild Sardinian Maquis. But if they are to be together, they must first confront their past and dark forces in the shadows determined to come between them.

Daring to love again after so many years, can Venetia overcome her own demons? Or will Paolo's carefully guarded, devastating secret tear them apart forever?

Praise for Hannah Fielding

“Escape to the winding streets of Venice, where Venetia gets herself tangled up with charismatic stranger Paolo. He’s a Don Juan with a dangerous secret, and she has sworn that her heart is closed – but can they resist their smouldering chemistry?” Inside Soap

“I absolutely adored the depth of the love story in The Echoes of Love, it felt almost voyeuristic to read. Fielding encapsulates the overwhelming experience of falling deeply, completely, utterly in love beautifully, and the glorious backdrop of Venice, eloquently described throughout, is the perfect setting for this romantic novel.” Books with Bunny
