Sneak Peek of Dragons Walk Among Us by Dan Rice

We head for the Chapel Library off the quad to study with Haji. Over an inch of snow hides the red bricks of the quad. The snow falls dry and thick, quickly filling in our footprints. We enter the library and walk to a chamber like a cathedral with a high vaulted ceiling, book-lined walls, and long tables. The room is only sparsely populated with studying students, so we easily find an empty table and sit across from each other.

            We decide to work on algebra while we wait for Haji. We’re deep into working quadratic equations when someone loudly clearing their throat makes me nearly jump out of my seat. We both look up, searching for the disturbance. I half expect the culprit to be Haji.

            It’s a tall and absurdly thin man standing just inside the entrance to the reading room. I recognize him as Dr. Radcliffe from the many faculty functions I’ve attended with Dad over the years. I stare at him, entranced, not believing what I’m seeing.

            “Allison, is something wrong?” Dalia whispers.

            “No,” I say and drag my gaze back to the quadratic equation written in my notebook.

            Dalia resumes talking about strategies to solve the equation, but I barely register a word. My gaze is lured back to Dr. Radcliffe like a particle inexorably pulled into a black hole. My eyes widen, and my jaw slackens. Furrowing my brow, I blink, desperate to clear the mind-boggling absurdity from my vision.

Dragons Walk Among Us

The Allison Lee Chronicles Book 1

by Dan Rice

Genre: YA Fantasy

At times it’s hard to believe what you see.

Shutterbug Allison Lee is trying to survive high school while suffering the popular girl’s abuse. Her life is often abysmal, but at least her green hair is savage. Her talent for photography is recognized by the school paper and the judges of a photo contest.

While visiting her friend Joe, a homeless vet, Allison’s life irrevocably changes after an attack leaves her blind. All her dreams as a photojournalist are dashed as she realizes she’ll never see again. Despair sets in until she is offered an experimental procedure to restore her vision. But there are side effects, or are they hallucinations? She now sees dragons accompanying some of the people she meets. Can she trust her eyes, or has the procedure affected her more than she can see?

Book Spotlight: Hexes & Hijinks by Sherry Soule

Hexes & Hijinks

Danika Dreary Mystery Book 1

by Sherry Soule

Genre: Cozy Paranormal Mystery

This book will appeal to readers of Nancy Warren, Angie Fox, Molly Fitz, and Kate Allenton!

A whimsical matchmaker. A bizarre murder. And a psychic amateur sleuth…

Danika Dreary’s life is a hot mess. After her latest soul-crushing crisis, Danika moves in with her eccentric grandma, Elsie.

But there’s a catch: Danika must work at Karma Moon within the quaint town of Mystique, California. Except this is no ordinary new-age bookshop, it’s also where Elsie—a legendary matchmaker—helps the lonely residents find love.

When Ryker Van Allan demands his money back on a true love package, Elsie and Danika are shocked. Yet Ryker insists the woman never showed up for the date. And he’s telling the truth—Danika has a built-in lie detector that warns her whenever someone’s being dishonest.

That night, the woman’s body is found near the shop, and Elsie is accused of the murder. Danika can’t let her grandma serve time for a crime she didn’t commit. But the victim has more enemies than the town has secrets, and Danika can’t throw a tarot card without hitting a potential suspect.

With the clock ticking, Danika must prove Elsie’s innocence, suffer through the horrors of retail, and maybe even find a place where she truly belongs.

Guest Post: One Unique Thing About Kimberly Wylie

One of the unique things about me is I currently live on the tiny island of Ambergris Caye in Belize. The island is only 26 miles long and just one mile wide at its maximum width. At some places, it’s so narrow you can stand and see both shorelines on either side.

I still pinch myself almost daily. I live in a place where most people dream about vacationing. I don’t own a car. Instead, most personal vehicles are golf carts. And if I’m forced to wear shoes, it’s flip flops. We call sneakers (and other shoes) ‘foot prisons.’ It’s not uncommon to see people barefoot everywhere—even the grocery store! I wake up to the turquoise blue waters to my east and mangrove islands to my west.

We do not have Walmart or Target or Starbucks (although we do have a couple of excellent coffee shops THANKFULLY!). There are actually no fast food chains in the entire country, let alone our little island. No McDonald’s. No Subway. No debate over who has the best chicken sandwich.

My friends back in the States agree it’s an amazing place to visit, but I’m often asked, “Don’t you miss…civilization?”

Sometimes I think I may miss it. I think I miss being able to go to the mall or go see a play. But then I head out to my dock, put my fins and snorkel on and head out to the water. I guess I’ll trade sea turtles and manatees and dolphins for civilization any day of the week.

Zombies For Everyone

A Jenna Sutton Supernatural Cozy Mystery Book 1

by Kimberly Wylie

Genre: Supernatural Cozy Mystery

Jenna Sutton is nothing like the iconic vampire slayer of TV fame.

She’s the antithesis of a cheerleader. She’s not peppy. And she sucks at gymnastics. She has nothing in common with the fictional Buffy, other than being blonde and in high school…

Oh, and occasionally she kills vampires for a living as well as other things that go bump in the night.

Following an attack on an English teacher at a nearby school, it becomes clear this wasn’t an ordinary coyote bite. The gray-green Lichtenberg-like webbing of streaks making their way up Ms. Pruett’s arm can mean only one thing—zombies.

But this isn’t a normal zombie attack. The victims seem to be hand-picked.

Can Jenna complete her investigation without the school administrators figuring out she’s actually a high school student from another school? Will Jenna be able to find out who’s behind these attacks before a full-scale zombie outbreak overtakes the town? And, perhaps most importantly…

Why did her best friend kiss her after all of these years?
