The aliens are here, and now our lives are different: no wars, no  hunger, no exploitation. For political prisoner Thomas Bridge, there can be a strange new love; for the alien delegate, Avdryana, there can be  companionship in a world that she finds crowded and foreign. But even  with hope for the future, can there be an escape from the stifling ideas and expectations of the past?
*
“All Roads Lead to Winter” is a novella that deals with parallel worlds, politics, sexual tension, the grip of memory, the strength and  generosity of women, the beauty of being together. It also looks at the  pain of old lives that have not yet adjusted to the new.

An intimate drama with a vast background, a love story about heartbreak  and hope, it uses the framework of science fiction to examine the very  human costs of change and loss and new perspectives.

When Zelda Pryce is asked to assemble an ancient device, the talented young geometrix is drawn into the globe-spanning, centuries-long search for the most dangerous woman in the world.

With the help of the ever-charming Clive Caspian, special agent Yasmin Demir, and her friend Jenny Baker, Zelda sets out to learn the secrets of the arcane people known as demons. From a Siberian prison to a Chinese temple, from a Kenyan wildlife preserve to the very ends of the earth, every answer they find only raises more questions.

And the only revelation more terrifying than the demons’ plan for the human race is the discovery of the unspeakable act committed by Zelda herself which set all of these events in motion in the first place.

What they’re saying:
(
“Killer at the Door is a macabre collection of eight short stories, each with either a touch of murder and mayhem. Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson, sisters who co-author, have put together an awesome collection of short stories. While reading, I felt as if I were being held in a mind puzzle. Is it him? Is it her? Who the heck do you believe? I wanted to yell, “No! Don’t trust him!” or “Run! He’s the murderer!” I never knew who was going to turn out to be the killer. All the short stories are cleverly written by this duo. My only complaint is that I didn’t want them to end!

Crimson & Cream recounts an unlucky orphan boy’s adventurous tale of flight and discovery as he unravels his tortured past while securing his tenuous future.  Hounded by watchmen, trolls, goblins, and a relentless bounty hunter, Jetsam begins running for his life, and dreams of a day when the deadly race will end.
In the magnificent mountain city of Dwim-Halloe, Eadriel and Elvar were born identical twin brothers to teachers at the city’s revered School of Magic.  In Dwim-Halloe, a new king declared magic evil, and outlawed its practice.  This decree spawned a revolt by the resident spellcasters, which led to a bloody rebellion.  With brutal force, the new ruler crushed the uprising.  The twins parents’ murder forfeited the boys’ birthright to learn the art of magic, and sent them fleeing for their lives.
*
Rescued by an orphan gang, the twins were nicknamed Flotsam and Jetsam.  The clan introduced them to their underbelly lair, where they live in hiding.  To survive, the fugitive urchins sneak up to town nightly to scavenge and pilfer.
(
During their last risky foray, a castle sentry spotted the youthful intruders and the brothers fled into an unfamiliar cavern.  Lost deep underground, they encountered a strange beast that changed their lives forever and started a harrowing journey for survival.

What they’re saying about it:
*
“What a great adventure! I really enjoyed reading this book. Poor Jetsam had to do a lot of running from great enemies and creatures. You did a great job on the dialogue both making it sound natural as well as appropriate for each social class. This is a challenge for many authors, so kudos to you. You also had beautiful descriptions and story twists. We look forward to reading more of your work in the future.” — Grub Street Reads
