Operation Boyfriend
by Molly Zenk
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
It’s safe to say my love life stinks. As if getting dumped for another guy by my long-term boyfriend isn’t enough, my hopes at finding a boyfriend get crushed with a string of disastrous dates.
 
But then I meet the strange bus boy who has been staring at me for the last three months. He’s awkward, goofy, and has no fashion sense. Corin is the exact opposite of what I should want in a boyfriend, but I feel drawn to him in a way I can’t explain.
 
There’s also Daniel. Smart, charming, successful, and well-dressed. He’s the perfect man, the kind of guy I should want. Even my family is convinced we’re meant to be together.
 
Somehow, I went from the girl with a catastrophic love life
to a woman with one too many options.
 
Now I need to decide whether to follow my head…or my heart.

In a future that holds shifters captive, what will they risk to break free?
 
Lorelei, a siren, has spent the last three years searching for the man she loved after he was abducted in front of her. When the bounty for an escaped phoenix crosses her desk at the Phoenix Location Agency, she expects a typical bag and tag. Instead, she discovers the target, Aiden, is none other than her lost love.
Aiden has no memory of the sultry siren who insists they were once in love. Rising from the ashes comes with a price—he’s a new person, with no memories of his former lives. After years of being kept in bird form to harvest his healing phoenix tears, Aiden is not the man Lorelei knew.
 
When both are taken in by the Magical Creature Underground, reconciliation seems possible. But Aiden’s captivity comes with a dire consequence: a deadly poison is working its way toward his heart. The only known cure is a long shot at best. Can Aiden and Lorelei reclaim their stolen past before the clock runs out?

The blood graft stealing Aiden’s life is worsening. His only hope of lasting long enough to make it across the country is to let Xander use Phoenix Tears to keep the Burning at bay. A sacrifice Aiden isn’t willing for Xander to make now their relationship has a chance.
 
The hybrid baby growing double time inside Lorelei keeps her from being focused on the mission. As does Douglas’s ultimatum for their future. It’s throwing her off her game. That means she’s bound to make a mistake. One that could prove deadly for them all.
 
Their only hope of survival as they race across the barren wilderness is to rely on each other. With hearts and lives on the line, each decision Aiden and Lorelei make brings them one step closer to freedom … and one slip away from certain death.

King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court
by Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre: SciFi Time Travel Fantasy
 
 
How sick are you of US politics? How doomed is the world because of who has claimed the Oval Office throne—er, chair?
 
Refresh your spirit by laughing along with what Mark Twain
might have written about today’s political falderal.
 
Solidly entertaining.” —Publishers Weekly
 
WINNER 2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for
Science Fiction & Fantasy.
 
Morgan le Fay, sixth-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300 miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079, replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings, virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological marvels.
 
Whatever is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball franchise.
 
Written as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society, popular culture, politics, baseball… and the human heart.
 
Mark Twain began work on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court in 1879—the same year the Yankee Hank Morgan departed for his sojourn in sixth-century Britain. The first edition was published in 1889 and features more than 200 illustrations by the man who later would become founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Daniel Carter Beard. These illustrations are now in the public domain, and a handful have been incorporated into King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court as an artistic homage to this classic edition of the first time travel story in all literature.

In 2075, following the World Annihilation Period and Earth’s 50-year transformation, the detested Skalag clan periodically pillages Ukkiville to murder and enslave its inhabitants. Dangers intensify as vicious, mutant beasts lurk in the shadows, preying on villagers. At the heart of this evil, the twisted scientist, Zolokt, creates killer combinations of animals, plants, and insects to inflict his acts of revenge.
 
Infuriated by the savage attacks, a young leader, Thoruk, and his two lifelong friends pledge their lives to protect Ukkiville. The determined ruler aims to forever put an end to Zolokt and his followers, for only then will true freedom reign in The New World.

Once, living only in youngsters’ nightmares, ferocious mutant beasts now stir in the shadows of Ukkiville — even during the light of day. Blood-thirsty predators with glowing eyes, gnashing teeth, and razor-sharp claws prey on unsuspecting victims.
 
Caru, the brave but brash young daughter of Ukkiville’s ruler, fears nothing. Trained by the best and possessing powers of the mind greater than her father’s, she leads her two lifelong friends into the teeth of intensifying perils.

Before long, they encounter a beast far more ferocious than any discovered before.

With little choice but to ready themselves to thwart increasing slaughters, Hoot, her brother, Skeeter, and a precocious android named Andralec hone their skills and special powers. Until the inhabitants of Ukkiville and the surrounding territory halt this growing threat, survival remains all but uncertain.

While writing The New World trilogy proved to be one of the most exciting challenges of my life, if anyone had told me six years ago I’d be writing science fiction action-adventure novels, I would have declared them bonkers! For most of my life, I had been an engineering and programming nerd whose main reading materials included technical scientific articles and books with little time to read novels of any sort of fiction.
 
The few dreams I experienced during my lengthy career as a Sr. Software Development Manager at IBM mostly focused on conjuring solutions to tough technical issues at work. Never did sleep delve into imagining some fictional adventure. But that all changed after I retired from IBM in March of 2007 at age 53 with 30 rewarding years of service. The extra time on my hands provided plenty of hours to devote to more creative endeavors.
 
My initial attempt at writing capitalized on my 30 years of investing in all sorts of financial assets. I wanted to share my knowledge with our children to aid their financial planning. After completing more than 400 pages of the manuscript, I joined a writers’ group. The members liked the technical content but advised me to liven it up to make in more attractive for my younger target audience of high school and collage graduates getting a start on life. I came up with an fictional world and a couple of quirky characters to weave into my investing lessons.
 
The members loved the improvements, but an unexpected problem bared itself: my brain refused to churn out nightly ideas about investments. Instead, my dreams gushed with captivating characters and an intriguing new world with plenty of vicious beasts lurking in the shadows of my mind. I had no choice but to follow the fate which unfolded night after night, providing oodles of exciting material to more than fulfill any writing desires. I provided my financial manuscript to my daughters, and from that exhilarating change of direction in 2014, I’ve been creating a fascinating new world at the turn of the next century!
 
I began writing my first novel, The New World: A Step Backward in June of 2014 and published it on June 28, 2015. A little over a year later, on October 1, 2016, I published Book 2 of the series, The New World: Blue Moon Generation. After a bit of a delay due to the challenges of a serious family illness, I completed the final novel of the Trilogy, The New World: Crimson Winter and published it on November 6, 2018.
