I completed Twilight Daybreak, my "Breaking Dawn" sequel sendup and released it on Amazon. Earlier I released my two book set of Magic and Time Travel between modern day, Ancient Egypt and Minoan Crete. It includes The Missing Princess of Egypt and The Princess and the Minotaur. I'm planning my next books, and there may be a 3rd book in my time travel series. I completed my trilogy of Star Wars, Twilight and Star Trek parodies Twilight of the Star Vampires.

Please enjoy my works. They are on Amazon.
Best wishes,
Paula Sunsong

Alon Shalev published At the Walls of Galbrieth (A Wyccan Master Book), Winner of the Eric Hoffer Book Award - YA category and Grand Prize Finalist! The young elf desired only to follow in his mother's footsteps and become a healer. But when the Emperor's army attacks his village to punish traitors and conscript youth, Seanchai flees to the mountains, seeking safe harbor with an uncle he has never met. He is shocked as many people sacrifice their lives to ensure he reaches a Wycaan Master, an enigmatic woman named Mhari, who can teach him to wield a powerful death-and-life magic that might just free the races of Odessiya.

In a world defined by strict racial boundaries, where humans rule, dwarves hide deep underground, and elves are a slave nation, Seanchai must find a way to create friendships and trust, unheard of since the fall of the Wycaan Masters, and reunite the races into an alliance that will bring freedom to all.

But sometimes one must choose between his companions and his destiny. Seanchai abhors his ability to kill and, in the friendships he forges, discovers something potentially more powerful than his magic.

Friendship, however, can be a double-edged sword. Check out At the Walls of Galbrieth and the other Wyccan Master books!

Earl Roske has self published The Tale of the Music-Thief. Get a copy from Amazon here and plague your local bookstore to carry copies! Here's the book description to whet your appetite: Music is being stolen. From everywhere. Not just the printed pages and the crystals that playback music, but from the very minds of the people. The latest victim of this theft is the City-Along-The-Lake Opera Company. Their latest production is shut down opening night because no one can remember a single note or word of the opera. Allegra takes it worse than others. From her childhood she's been surrounded by music. Now that her clan from the Great Steppes is dead of a sleeping plague she has only the song memories left to remind her of who she is. But those memories scare her, she's afraid of the pain they will cause her. She has buried them under hundreds of other songs she's learned since then. Now that those songs are disappearing, the past is rising in her memories. Allegra tries to hide at home but when the isolation gets to her, she dons the disguise of Allegor, a traveling troubadour. One night, as she plays one of the few local songs she has left in her memory at a local tavern, she feels the music being stolen as she sings. She also sees a strange man in a traveling cloak, carrying what looks to be like a teapot made of crystal. She tries to talk to him but he escapes the tavern. Suspecting that this mysterious man may have something to do with the disappearing music, Allegra sets out in a pursuit that takes her far down the South Road. Using a magic map she tries to catch the music-thief. But she only has until the music-thief reaches Town-Where-South-Road-Forks. After that the magicked map will be useless and the thief will escape with all the music.
