Spirit Lake

Six teenagers from Northern California are assigned a group project for their sophomore English class. Little do they know, this project will literally take them on a journey out of this world. Cantelia appears much like Earth, until the teens realize magic is as plentiful as the danger surrounding them. A dark and evil ruler has placed a curse on the tribal people of Sikuku Island—the same island where the teens have been transported. Now, they must help the tribal people break the curse if they ever want to see their own planet again. Alex and her companions quickly learn that there is so much more beyond their comfortable lives in Pollock Pines and its legendary Spirit Lake.

The Wrong Fairy Tale

Being a hero is not such an easy job after all.

It’s junior year, and Alex and her friends are just trying to survive high school: boring homework, detention, crushes…and a fateful journey through a portal to another planet—you know, the usual. Despite being average California teenagers, this group of six finds themselves on a return trip to the strange land of Cantelia, where their Spirit Guide, Goden, has sent them. This time, they appear near the Alfaran Forest: a place, where, once again, many inhabitants claim these kids are the Chosen Ones and that they will help to find a solution for ridding the forest of a new kind of horror.

Will the teens have the courage to fight the real enemy? Or will they be forever trapped on Cantelia?

What Do Fictional Characters Eat?

Hello, lovely readers!

I wanted to share a quick post with you all. Last week, I had the privilege of being a guest blogger over at “But What Are They Eating?” by Shelley Workinger. In the post, I talk about food in literature, and then address the food I made up in my own book, The Wrong Fairy Tale. This was a very different post for me—one that I’d never even thought about doing before—which made it all the more fun.

Take a look at my post by clicking HERE, and be sure to give Shelley’s blog some love. Hope you enjoy the post. 🙂

Until next time, happy reading and happy eating!

Now Available: Protostar by Braxton Cosby

Hey, guys!

Remember when I did the cover reveal for Braxton Cosby’s Protostar? Well, the book is officially out today! Super exciting! I wanted to do a quick spotlight so ya’ll can pick up a copy for yourselves. 🙂

 

Here’s the synopsis:

 

WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE: LOVE OR DUTY? As the Torrian Alliance continues its age-old mission of hunting down Star-children, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son, William, to planet Earth on a mission to bring honor back to the Royal Family name. The target: Sydney, a young teenage girl, unaware of her alien heritage. When an unforeseen accident delays the assassination, William begins to realize a connection forming with Sydney and struggles to follow through with his orders. With the fear of Civil War imminent back home, William must make the ultimate choice between his irrevocable duty and love, sacrificing everything he believes. But as a hidden menace emerges to secure a vested interest, and impossible odds begin to mount against them, William and Sydney wonder if a connection between two Star-Crossed lovers is enough to save them from destruction.

 

Protostar Cover

 

You can pick up a copy of the eBook on Amazon and other online retailers (Smashwords, B&N, Kobo). Paperback for this title will be available on June 30th, and there will be a special Facebook launch party on that day. (I’ll let you guys know all about that soon.)

 

Also, did you know there is a prequel to this book? It’s titled Broken Prince, and was released on eBook last week. I have had the pleasure of editing all the books in the Star-Crossed Saga thus far, and really enjoyed Broken Prince. Grab a copy on Amazon.

Broken Prince

On June 30th, Braxton will be releasing the follow-up to Protostar: Supernova. I am really stoked for that. If you’re into YA/Sci-Fi, you HAVE TO read this series! Just trust me on this. 🙂 The paperback for Supernova will also be released on that same day.

To see all the other books written by Braxton, just check out his Amazon Author Page by clicking HERE. Also, feel free to send him a tweet and congratulate him on his book’s release.
