As you know, Matthew Freake’s LGBT romance, Forbidden, launches on May 17th, 2015. What you might not know is that Forbidden’s release kicks off our Summer of New Releases! From May 17th to October 17th we intend to release two books each month!! We’ve teased about a few of the titles and introduced you to most of the authors, but here’s a more comprehensive look at what’s to come!
“The only man I ever loved is dead. This is our story…”
We can’t talk about this book enough right now. The cover has been revealed and Forbidden is available for pre-order from major retailers and on our website. At 130 pages, it’s a quick read, but the story is as intense as it is transformative. If you like historical fiction, literary fiction, or tragic, steamy romances, then this is the book to check out this summer!
June 1st – Disenchanted by Leigh Goff, a young adult romance about witches!
A forbidden love, a dark curse, an impossible choice…
The cover reveal for this book is just around the corner and you won’t want to miss it! June 1st is coming up fast, which means that Disenchanted will soon also be available for pre-order. It’s fantasy, romance, and full of magic! If the supernatural is your thing and you’re even remotely interested in witchcraft, then you’ll want to keep an eye on this one.
Children are the keys to our future. And now, children are the only hope for our past.
Step back into the past through an overgrown stone arch in this time-travel series by Sharon Ledwith. The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis is full of fun and mayhem and is a wild ride to the Sherwood Forest and back again. And being that its somewhere between middle grade and young adult, readers of all ages will find something in it for them.
July 1st – Stormdancer by Joshua Pantalleresco. A post-apocalyptic epic poem with art by the talented Florence Chan.
The Storm is here!
Have you read The Watcher yet? If you have, you’ll love this sequel. With more art, more poetry, and more post-apocalyptic adventures, Stormdancer delivers on everything The Watcher promised. If you haven’t read The Watcher yet, what are you waiting for? It’s a unique experience you won’t soon forget!
Could a dragon-mage be the next ruler of the magical kingdom of Dorlith?
Follow protagonist Trina as she tries to find a dragon mage to teach her to control her fire-powers in this comedic fantasy adventure. She gets in over her head when she enters a competition to become the next heir to the throne and hilarity ensues. With fantastic writing and storytelling, She Dreamed of Dragons would make a great addition on anyones to-read list!
August 1st – Legend of the Timekeepers by Sharon Ledwith, a second installment in her middle grade adventure series!
There is no moving forward without first going back.
Legend of the Timekeepers is a prequel to The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis. It tells the story of Lilith and reveals how she turns from an Atlantean refugee into a legendary Timekeeper sworn to protect time itself from an ancient evil.
Fate and wills collide in this Shakespearian-style romantic comedy about good intentions and their unintentional consequences.
Murandy and I are back with another fantasy romance, but this time we’ve taken a more light-hearted approach. Unintended has four main characters with four distinct plot lines woven together. There’s never a dull moment, and I promise we’ll have you laughing. If you haven’t read one of our novels yet, I suggest you try this one. You’ll be glad you did!
September 1st – The Legend of Ghost Dog Island, a middle grade adventure and the first in Rita Monette’s Nikki Landry Swamp Legends series.
With a colourful setting and colourful cast of characters, the writing in this book is exceptional and will suck you right in! Meet ten-year-old Nikki Landry and her dog Snooper and head into the bayou with them for the adventure of a lifetime!
September 17th – Sol of the Coliseum by Adam Gaylord, a gladiatorial fantasy adventure.
Sol, a gladiator, is born a slave in the coliseum and knows nothing else. Join him in his world and learn the ins and outs of life within the coliseum’s high walls while participating in fierce and deadly battles against fantastical creatures for the entertainment of the masses. Sol of the Coliseum is gripping, action-packed and thought-provoking. I strongly recommend it.
October 1st (or possibly sooner) – The Coffee Monster by Nate Friedman, a full-colour children’s book with art by Saba Bushnaq
The Coffee Monster has a problem. Two children, Jenna and James are the only ones who can help him. This beautifully designed children’s book lightly touches on the issue of addiction in an amusing and educational way and is brought to you by the highly talented Nate Friedman.
October 17th – The Curse at Pirate’s Cove by Rita Monette, the next installment in the Nikki Landry Swamp Legends series!
It’s back to the bayou for another middle grade adventure, this time featuring pirates! Same great writing, immersive setting and imaginative characters. Rita’s one talented lady! This book and the one before it also feature her own artwork!
