Zelia is a priestess, with sky-blue skin and stranger tempers. Daughter of a ritual union between a human and Air's flighty elemental queen, she lives abandoned in the College of Healers. When a man dies because of Zelia's rebellion, she is accused of the crime and declared renegade.

Now Available: Instant Gold by Frank O'Rourke

Instant Gold - Frank O'Rourke

In 1933 FDR took America off the gold standard and locked the price at $35 per ounce. At that time the government forbade private citizens from owning any bulk gold, beyond the jewelry they wore.


Should anyone come into possession of any gold, via prospecting or other means, they are required to sell it to the nearest bank or Federal Reserve immediately, at the earliest possible time. Failure to do so would result in a rather lengthy prison term.

Our story takes place in 1964 when gold bullion was still illegal to own.




Early one foggy November morning a small shop opens for business in the fashionable shopping district of downtown San Francisco. Showcased in their window is the one thing they sell. A small, nondescript can with simple lettering. Etched clearly on the plate glass window was...


instant gold


A mysterious salesman opens shop selling "instant gold," a fine gray powder that isn't gold, but when mixed with equal parts of common sea water, and left to sit for one hour, miraculously transforms into solid 24-karat gold -- and now everyone wants a piece of the action. From common citizens, to big business, to the mob wants to get it, control it, and make a quick fortune from it. The government scrambles to control it while the public lines up wanting their eight ounces of fine gray powder and eight ounces of sea water to turn into one pound of solid gold, earning them a hefty $60 an hour profit -- which, in 1964, was a small fortune!


Could it be real?  Could the age-old alchemy dream of creating gold have come true at last?  And who are the mysterious inventors of this wondrous concoction? The world needs to know!




Instant Gold is a modern day fairy tale that satirizes human greed and lays bare the whole paradox of free enterprise capitalism, all the while thumbing a symbolic nose at big government.

If he follows the strict policy of the Government of Gautama, can he find a way to bring the pirates in peacefully without losing any of his soldiers?

Time, and most of Portugal, has almost forgotten Luminosa, a small fishing community on the Alentejo coast. A cluster of white and blue cottages huddle under the cliffs overshadowed by the great manor of Herdade Albatroz whose family has ruled the village since the days of Napoleon. Far off the tourist route, nobody visits Luminosa by chance.


When a ruthless American racketeer turns up, the peaceful village's way of life could be ruined forever. But will other visitors--Piper Pines, seeking news of her long dead Portuguese mother, and Leo Shine, bereft of a father and brother accused of terrible crimes--help or hinder his objective to drag Luminosa into the twenty-first century?

High Above the Waters - Gilbert M. Stack After Birth - J.E. Sayles

High Above the Waters by Gilbert M. Stack


Marcus Hunter won't stay dead; he stalks his bridge all bloody red...


As a pregnant fifteen year old, Autumn Fields learned firsthand that the town ghost was more than a creepy legend. All alone in the world, rejected by her boyfriend and beaten bloody by her father, Autumn climbed out onto Hunter’s Bridge to kill herself, but an encounter with a mysterious man convinced her that dying wouldn't necessarily solve her problems.


Sixteen years later, she's coming back to Prospect with her teenaged daughter to make peace with her dying father and finally discover the truth about that night long ago. But with the haunted bridge about to be torn down, has Autumn waited too long to come back and find her ghost?

After Birth by J.E. Sayles


When Miriam Gulch is forced to give birth to her child in an abandoned old farmhouse, she doesn’t remember much of it: A long car drive to the place that appears to have no purpose other than to facilitate the birth; a couple, awaiting the child’s delivery; and awakening later in her own room to empty arms. All she is left with is a foggy memory no one else in her world will acknowledge. Her parents insist she is going insane...


Miriam has but one goal: to someday find her child. She already suffered the horrific loss of Dex, and thought she could never love again. At first, due to her father’s threats to have her committed, she is afraid to speak of the child she lost. But now she has met Chance Blakeford, the one man who believes her--and wants to help. Together, they try to piece together what took place.


Eventually, Miriam uncovers a horrible truth. Long ago, she and her unborn child were unwittingly entered into an evil pact. The only way to eradicate the evil is to destroy the very place where the evil began...

Second Edition Now Available! Our Lady of the Snow by Louise Cooper

Our Lady of the Snow - Louise Cooper

Buy now at Coming to other retailers soon.


The small kingdom of Vyskir is under threat of invasion by Duke Arec, leader of the neighboring state. The people of Vyskir look to the benevolence of their god and his consort, the Lady of the Snow, but for some years now, the Lady has sent no visions and the religious elders are secretly questioning her very existence.


A marriage union between Arec's daughter and the heir of Vyskir's ailing Imperator would eliminate the threat, but such a union can--and must--involve the Imperator's second son only, for the true heir apparent, Prince Osiv, is a congenital simpleton. As the law decrees that the eldest son must be the first to marry, the elders set out to find Osiv a bride.


Nanta is the perfect choice; meek, docile, well-bred, and beautiful--and, along with the rest of the populace, unaware of Prince Osiv's condition. But Nanta has a sinister secret. For many years she has been haunted by visions of the Lady of the Snow; vision she dares not reveal to a living soul. For in them the Lady is dead. And a powerful voice, that's getting harder to resist, is calling Nanta to avenge her...

Ayden, a slightly overzealous dog rescuer, chases a pit bull down an alley just in time to witness a murder. The cops side with the killer, and his sudden interest in Ayden sends her straight back into the same weird visions that kept her institutionalized for most of her childhood.


She's learned to live with them, but somehow, the dark and dangerous Maxwell Jackson is not nearly as easy to ignore. He not only has the key to saving her dog, he believes in things Ayden has spent her whole life convincing herself are absolutely impossible.


She might be able to get past the crazy, might even be able to learn to trust another human again...but Maxwell is part of a group that uses dogs to hunt and to kill, and as far as Ayden is concerned, that's a major deal breaker.


If only she could forget that he's the man of her dreams.
