Adelina Ransome was tired of being alone. She longed for the day fate would present her mate to her. Addy was prepared to do what she must to find the one person meant for her. But before she put her plan in place, fate handed her a gift in the form of a midnight-haired, curvy witch.
Finding her mate wasn’t supposed to be this easy.
Convincing her to succumb to the pull of destiny shouldn’t be hard.
Cora Latimer was on the run. Finding the other half of her soul wasn’t expected. As much as she wanted to act on the instincts driving her to Addy, she couldn’t.
There was a crazed warlock hunting her down. Cora couldn’t risk the love of her life, but she vowed she’d protect her at all costs.
Will they give in to their desires and claim each other?

Bianca, a timid and shy university student, has no choice but to step outside her comfort zone to seek answers to her ghostly problems. The only problem is that, because of what she finds, she now has more questions than before.
The things I see aren’t for the faint of heart.
And I am no longer willing to ignore them. Not even when my family, and my best friend, tell me to keep quiet about what’s happening. They say people will think I’m crazy.
Maybe I am.
But the spirit haunting my professor’s house is definitely trying to tell me something, and I’m the only one who can see it.
The one person who can help me is my best friend’s brother. But I don’t know if I can trust him or his friends. Or if I can step outside the protective bubble I’ve built around myself.
At this point it’s a toss up: the ghosts will kill me or my panic attacks will.
Either way, I figure I’m going to die.

The Book of Uriel
Expected Publication Date: January 26, 2021
Genre: Historical Fiction/ Jewish Fiction/ Jewish Folklore/ Holocaust Fiction
Publisher: Project 613 Publishing
In the fires of World War II, a child must save his people from darkness…
Ten-year-old Uriel has always been an outcast. Born mute in a Jewish village known for its choir, he escapes into old stories of his people, stories of angels and monsters. But when the fires of the Holocaust consume his village, he learns that the stories he writes in his golden notebook are terrifyingly real.
In the aftermath of the attack, Uriel is taken in by Uwe, a kind-hearted linguist forced to work for the commander of the local Nazi Police, the affably brutal Major Brandt. Uwe wants to keep Uriel safe, but Uriel can’t stay hidden. The angels of his tales have come to him with a dire message: Michael, guardian angel of the Jewish people, is missing. Without their angel, the Jewish people are doomed, and Michael’s angelic brethren cannot search for him in the lands corrupted by Nazi evil.
With the lives of millions at stake, Uriel must find Michael and free him from the clutches of the Angel of Death…even if that means putting Uwe in mortal danger.

Uriel wished he could scream.
Normally, he could. A scream was one of the few noises that ever emerged from the boy’s lips. No words ever escaped, but he could summon a scream.
Yet his lungs couldn’t gather enough air to produce a cry. They struggled to supply enough oxygen to keep the child awake. Smoke invaded his throat and clawed at his lungs. Although screams pierced the air from every angle, he couldn’t add his own to the din.
He still felt the pressure of mother’s fingers locked around his hand, even though she was gone. Uriel’s golden eyes darted to and fro, searching for her face. His fingers twitched as her warmth faded. He strained his ears, trying to hear her call to him, but her voice did not rise above the ruckus.
Mama! Uriel thought, his tears allying with the smoke and assaulting his eyes. He wanted to cry out for her. Perhaps if she heard him, she would find him, and they could get to safety. But his voice had never worked before, and though he opened his mouth to call out, all he could do was pant and cough.
Gunshots rang out. The fleeing villagers clung to their families and their few precious possessions, shoving one another out of the way as they tried to escape the flames enveloping the little town and the murderous mob cutting down the Jews. Young and old, women and men, little children and babies were thrown to the ground, beaten with clubs, shot, stabbed, and slaughtered. Their blood mingled with the warm ash coating the cobblestones.
Uriel stood in the midst of the mayhem, still as a statue, alone. His right hand yearned for his mother, while his left clutched the one possession he had snatched before fleeing his house. His little golden notebook. Small enough to fit in his pocket and filled with stories he couldn’t leave to burn.
Although the villagers would normally never leave a small child alone in the street, concern for their own lives and the lives of their families caused them to stampede. Uriel was pushed against a brick wall, and his golden notebook flew from his hand. He gasped, inhaling an army of ash. The boy desperately tried to crawl to his notebook. Boots and shoes stomped on the cherished book, but Uriel reached it. He grabbed the notebook and held it to his chest, shielding it with his body.
The child was trampled and kicked. His lungs began losing to the smoke and ash entering through his nostrils and silent lips. He felt as though his insides were on fire, as though every bone in his body was about to shatter. When darkness finally took him, all he felt was gratitude.

About the Author
Elyse Hoffman can write a lot of things, but finds her own story dull and difficult. She has been interested in the Holocaust and Nazi Germany since she was thirteen. Her somewhat morbid fascination is purely intellectual and emotional. She advises you to be careful when signing contracts. You never know where or when you may end up.

As one of six possible candidates vying for Viscount Sterling’s hand, Lady Angelica has been invited to stay at his grand manor for a week-long house party. But an unpleasant feeling lurks within Colchester Hall. It’s almost as if someone’s watching Angelica just beyond the edge of her vision. And while she tries to explain the chill creeping up behind her as merely a draft, she can’t shake the feeling that something disturbing might be at play.
When Sterling decides she’s the woman he wants, can Angelica accept her new home and the sinister secrets she fears it might hold, or will she give up on true love because of what could prove to be nothing more than her own imagination?

A personal note from the author:
I began writing this series shortly after my M.S diagnosis. I had many reasons to fight. I had incredible children, wonderful family, and amazing friends, but this series gave me a purpose. Whenever things become dark, I use my imagination to find the light within myself. No matter what life throws your way, you are stronger than you believe. I hope my character’s strength becomes an inner voice for the readers who need it. Stand back up and if you cannot stand, rise within yourself. We are all immortal.
All heroes are born from the embers that linger after the fire of great tragedy.
She slept a dreamless sleep free of dragons for she had slain them once again.
Everyone knows that lone dragons don’t have perfect mates. Storm dragon Grissom Hale had long ago resigned himself to a lonely life. But when he stops to rescue a beautiful woman from a long walk down a lonely stretch of road during a terrible storm, he finds the woman that he was made for: his soul mate.
She’s the treasure that he wants most to protect, but can a human even feel a dragon’s mating bond?
Latina Ana Alves meets Grissom on the worst day of her life, while walking home from the worst date of her life. Detective Grissom Hale is handsome, kind, and shockingly rich. He might be too good to be true. But when Ana’s luck turns from bad to worse, Grissom Hale is the only thing standing between her and an unfortunate end…
Her Detective Dragon is a complete, standalone novel containing a steamy romance between the Latina barista, who finds herself in over her head, and the storm dragon turned police detective that would do anything to protect her.

CAN CHOICE EXIST WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF A PROPHECY?
Angelika Juris unexpectedly becomes legal guardian to her sister’s rejected child, Dani… a child with the potential to develop supernatural abilities.
After witnessing a horrific event, Dani develops mental health issues, but is able to overcome her inner turmoil through treatment and her parents’ love. Their lives fall into a comfortable routine filled with dance classes, sleepovers, and video game marathons.
Until the accident.
At the age of thirteen, Dani is involved in a tragic highway disaster, and as a result of her injuries, her powers manifest. Afraid to tell her parents about her newfound abilities, and even more afraid of harming them, Dani is lured away to find her estranged mutant brothers, seeking answers about her origins and how to control her new power.
Guided by an amulet and map—a gift sent from her brother, Tomas Scholz—Dani embarks on an adventure where she meets a young boy, Jonathan. He is lost, with no memories of his identity, his family, or his home. With nowhere else to turn, Jonathan joins Dani on her quest, and together they battle pirates, the undead, and finally, her evil family—a family that is a far cry from what she expected.
Will Dani deny her destiny and resist the evil plans of her siblings, or will she succumb to her role in fulfilling the prophecy—being the path and the key—that ends in the fall of mankind?
Agent Markus Drake assisted Dani and Jonathan to their portside seats inside the pilothouse. The driver then tossed them a couple of life jackets, before taking his seat at the helm.
The boat edged away from the dock, the engine on low. Rob waited tall and stoic on the dock until they pulled fully away. Dani watched him through the window, shrinking down until he was a tiny doll‑sized man and then tiny zombie dolls came running at him, charging onto the dock. The shots from Rob’s gun echoed across the water. The tiny zombie dolls flew backward one after the other. And then she couldn’t see the island anymore. Water surrounded them.
Turning back to face the front of the boat, she yelled over the sound of the motor at Agent Drake, “How long until we reach the mainland?” She assumed the patrol boat would cover the distance much faster than the barge had travelled.
“A few hours. There are some apples and sandwiches in the cooler.” He pointed under their seat. “Help yourselves.”
Dani wasn’t all that hungry, not after the carnage they had just witnessed. But, surprisingly, Jonathan grabbed himself a sandwich and devoured it in four bites.
Dani couldn’t help being pissed off. All the effort of getting her and Jonathan this far…wasted. Now they were retracing their steps, returning home. And then what? Her parents would be fuming, probably never trust her again. She would be punished, grounded forever, no longer able to venture anywhere on her own. And they would continue to keep the truth from her, who her biological father and brothers were, and where her brothers now lived…why she wasn’t allowed to see them. Now she would never meet her brothers or learn to control her power.
She couldn’t help wishing there was still a way for her to get there…to Mount Hekla…which wasn’t too far away from them but was quickly receding into the distance with each passing minute. This boat, although quite large, sped through the water with astonishing velocity. The time to turn around was slim, and the handsome driver with shoulder‑length brown hair, wearing Ray Bans and a military-style jacket, was uncommunicative. He was doing his job, escorting the kids back where he was ordered to and that was that. Convincing him to change course would be impossible.
If only Dani could get control of the boat. Then she could turn it around and steer in the opposite direction, where she thought Mount Hekla was located. Of course, that was crazy thinking. She couldn’t drive a boat, and she had no way to know for certain how to reach the active volcano. Resigned, she settled back into her chair, the oversized fluorescent orange lifejacket she wore rubbing uncomfortably against her chin.
A bang on the stern side hull of the boat caused the deck to vibrate beneath their feet, gaining Dani’s attention. The driver seemed not to notice; his attention focused forward on steering the large watercraft through the choppy waves. A can of oil rolled across the deck of the boat into Dani’s view through the pilothouse window.
Where did that come from?
Then a loud moan came from directly outside the aft door.
“Jonathan, did you hear that?” she asked the blond boy who was crunching hungrily on a red apple.
Mouth full, he mumbled, “Whot?” Then another moan. This one he heard. Eyes wide, he turned to Dani, choked down his apple and mouthed, “Zombie?”
