The Abandoned Edge of Avalon
by Eden Tyler (Night Publishing)
Storm World: Speaker Of The Gods
Not once in twenty-four years has Alexis slept a dreamless night. She used to relish the visions, but lately they've grown dangerous. Darkness is invading her days, showing the true nature of her existence.
After a nightmare occurs while she’s not sleeping, she discovers much about her past. Her real mother was killed the day she gave birth, leaving Alexis a faery changeling. Now the murderous evil is on the loose and stalking Alexis, desperate for her soul.
A simple bedtime verse holds the key to her life and safety, as well as the lives of many other fae. With only strangers to depend on—one being a depraved faery whom she can't help but fall for—Alexis’ emotions become stuck in overdrive.
Not even her wildest dreams could have prepared her for this chaos. But that's exactly where she must delve, back into dreams, to steal and sacrifice. This, according to the prophetic rhyme. Alexis’ strength must lead her toward the greater good. She’s in a race against fate, evil, & time … and doesn’t have a clue if she can actually win.

In the peaceful coastal town of Burgundy Hill, friendships, morals, and faith will be tested. In response to the increase in storm activity and an unexplained death, a gothic gang known only as The Resurrection Men infiltrates the town. They bear warning to Samuel Johnson that these are signs of the end of days and in order to survive, he must learn the ways of their order. The young man resists--only to see the earth dying around him--but is it too late? Can he solve the mystery of this cult before they transform Earth into Storm World?

Modern Day Drifter
When Calli Courtnae breaks the World Record for the 100m, she is invited to Montana to prepare for National tryouts. However, upon arrival using her lip reading ability she realizes she’s been lied to, or at least not told the whole truth. She's a superhuman, a Runner, and her new world includes transporting packages for other supernatural groups.
She’s paired up with an overly anxious Gothic roommate, is continuously glared down by the gorgeous top-dog, Chris, who feels she doesn’t belong, and is placed on a delivery team to transport a valuable magical diamond to a clan of terrorists who can kill with their thoughts.
Chris, the team leader, is given the diamond, but Calli secretly receives the real stone along with a vision of the future and an explanation of why she was hand selected to carry out the mission. Almost immediately the hidden diamond oozes unprecedented additional powers and abilities into Calli making her more sought after than the diamond itself.

Jake Shepherd is a man with a past he would like to erase. Fresh out of prison, he lands in Phelps, Texas, a town so small it isn’t much more than a wide spot in the road. Desperate to start a new life, he takes a job as a ranch hand and finds that ranch life is something he is good at, and soon he gains a spot on the rodeo team.
Despite extreme warnings from other ranch hands, Jake becomes interested in Annie Smithson, the ranch owner’s daughter. Annie is beautiful, sweet, and a star barrel racer. From the moment Jake meets her, he knows she is too good for him. Jake’s main goal after being paroled was to prove he was a better man. Finding love was the last thing on his mind. After falling for Annie, he lives in constant fear that his past will be revealed and he will be exiled from the ranch forever, being shunned from a life he is beginning to love, away from the first woman he ever cared for. A major accident tests his life, love, and friendships with many people he has come to know.
