DESCRIPTION:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Dovekeepers and The Museum of Extraordinary Things: a forbidden love story set on the tropical island of St. Thomas about the extraordinary woman who gave birth to painter Camille Pissarro—the Father of Impressionism.

Growing up on idyllic St. Thomas in the early 1800s, Rachel dreams of life in faraway Paris. Rachel’s mother, a pillar of their small refugee community of Jews who escaped the Inquisition, has never forgiven her daughter for being a difficult girl who refuses to live by the rules. Growing up, Rachel’s salvation is their maid Adelle’s belief in her strengths, and her deep, life-long friendship with Jestine, Adelle’s daughter. But Rachel’s life is not her own. She is married off to a widower with three children to save her father’s business. When her husband dies suddenly and his handsome, much younger nephew, Frédérick, arrives from France to settle the estate, Rachel seizes her own life story, beginning a defiant, passionate love affair that sparks a scandal that affects all of her family, including her favorite son, who will become one of the greatest artists of France.

Building on the triumphs of The Dovekeepers and The Museum of Extraordinary Things, set in a world of almost unimaginable beauty, The Marriage of Opposites showcases the beloved, bestselling Alice Hoffman at the height of her considerable powers. Once forgotten to history, the marriage of Rachel and Frédérick is a story that is as unforgettable as it is remarkable.

The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack

Evolved Publishing presents the literary saga of a young girl plucked from the sea under mysterious circumstances, in “The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky” by David Litwack, award-winning author of There Comes a Prophet and Along the Watchtower. [DRM-Free]

[Literary, Saga, Speculative] Though written for adults, this book is suitable for readers as young as 13.

After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.

Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena’s plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.

These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena’s home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.

But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever… and perhaps their world as well.

Be sure to check out David Litwack’s new dystopian sci-fi series The Seekers, beginning with The Children of Darkness (now available). Then watch for the second book in the series, The Stuff of Stars, to release November 30, 2015.

A beautiful young woman is dead. Her body, naked except for a pair of thigh-high black boots, hangs from the ceiling of her Greenwich Village apartment. In life she was drawn to celebrity artists, dark thrills, and forbidden pleasures, a hunger that NYPD detectives believe led to her self-imposed, possibly accidental demise.

But reporter Cass McCray is not willing to accept that her former friend’s death was a suicide or the tragic result of a sex game that went too far–and her investigation is leading the determined journalist deep into a secret world nestled in the shadows of the downtown New York City art scene. Here, where sexual submission is graphically celebrated and pain is fine art that sells for millions, Cass will discover a side of herself she never knew existed. Fearing the need yet unable to resist it, she gives herself willingly to photographer Mike Chernak, who will be her guide through a sexual playground of the creative and powerful. But surrendering to her curiosity–and to something far greater–could prove to be a most dangerous game for Cass McCray, as it pushes her to the erotic edge…and over it.

Eight years ago, while working for the district attorney’s office, she helped to prosecute a serial killer known as the Bayside Strangler – a man recently executed for his crimes.

When a third body is discovered, Kali realizes that the victims are anything but random. A chilling pattern is emerging, a pattern that points directly to the next target – Kali herself . . .

The gods are gone. All of them.

Their last message to humanity was: “Thank you for believing in us, but it is not enough. We’re leaving. Good luck.” At first no one took them seriously. Until, that is, all the denizens of all the heavens and hells started showing up on people’s doorsteps.

Creatures that were once thought of as myth are now refugees striving to adapt to life on earth. Trouble is, after eons of living forever, they’re not very good at being mortal.

Caught in the middle is Jean-Luc, a struggling hotelier who (reluctantly) promised to help these wayward ‘Others’ live in this new GoneGod world. But taking care of his guests, keeping his hotel afloat and dealing with the constant drama of the Others’ lives is figuratively killing him. And now that an unusually strange Other is in town, his figurative demise might soon become more literal.

Paradise Lot is a new urban fantasy series by R.E. Vance that chronicles the adventures of the humans and ‘Others’ alike, as they struggle to navigate this strange, new post apocalyptic godless world.

Maya knew something was wrong… The stranger’s glowing hands were a big tipoff.

When the stranger murders Maya’s boyfriend with a single touch and injects the college sophomore with a DNA-altering serum, Maya prays for a savior. Instead, she gets a double helping of knight-in-not-so-shining-armor when two young men claiming to be her half-brothers pull off a belated rescue.

Arianna Sinclair had led a privileged life, growing up in an elite neighborhood in Marin County, California. Having only known private schools, fancy country clubs and all things luxurious, Arianna had been prepared for everything in life–except hardship.

At twenty-two, Arianna’s world is rocked by tragedy, and all she wants to do is escape it by taking the trip of a lifetime. All she wants to do is pretend that everything is “normal”, even though her whole world has crashed in around her.

She’s made the decisions about the direction she wants her life to go, until a surprise encounter with someone from her past challenges everything she believes–and everything that she thinks she needs in order to move on.

The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack

Evolved Publishing presents the literary saga of a young girl plucked from the sea under mysterious circumstances, in “The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky” by David Litwack, award-winning author of There Comes a Prophet and Along the Watchtower. [DRM-Free]

[Literary, Saga, Speculative] Though written for adults, this book is suitable for readers as young as 13.

After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.

Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena’s plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.

These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena’s home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.

But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever… and perhaps their world as well.

Be sure to check out David Litwack’s new dystopian sci-fi series The Seekers, beginning with The Children of Darkness (now available). Then watch for the second book in the series, The Stuff of Stars, to release November 30, 2015.

Maya knew something was wrong… The stranger’s glowing hands were a big tipoff.

When the stranger murders Maya’s boyfriend with a single touch and injects the college sophomore with a DNA-altering serum, Maya prays for a savior. Instead, she gets a double helping of knight-in-not-so-shining-armor when two young men claiming to be her half-brothers pull off a belated rescue.

Now Maya is swiftly transforming into an “angel”, one of the scientifically enhanced, energy-sucking creatures her brothers have spent their whole lives trying to destroy. Maya’s senses sharpen, her body becomes strong and agile, and she develops the ability to visually see the emotions of those around her as colorful auras…beautiful auras…tempting auras.  

Struggling to control the murderous appetite that fuels her new abilities, this reluctant protagonist must find a way to accept her new condition and learn to trust her angel-hunting brothers as she joins them in their fight against the powerful and destructive creatures.

On the up side, at least Maya’s eldest brother has stopped trying to kill her!

DESCRIPTION:

Lieutenant Callum Harper hadn’t intended on punching his commanding officer quite so hard. But maybe it wasn’t such a bad turn of events. Court-martialed and dumped on a reject raft bound for Earth, Cal feels optimistic about a life where getting blown up, shot, or even eaten is altogether less of a concern. And, more importantly, a life where the only person he’s responsible for is himself.

Unfortunately, fate doesn’t favour the mundane. Crash-landing on a lethal planet, and with technology failing all around him, Cal must take his fellow passengers under his wing in order to survive and unravel the reasons behind their situation.

But the cause is far worse than any of them could have imagined, for theirs is a small part of a much larger crisis. Colonized space is under attack. Humanity is on the verge of chaos. And those who enjoy such anarchy are already beginning to thrive.

Yet Cal and his new companions will discover that mankind isn’t the true threat, not by a long shot.

˃˃˃ About the book

Star Splinter is the first book in the Fractured Space series, a fast-paced space opera that throws an unlikely group of characters together and spirals them to the very edges of colonized space. The protagonists find themselves having to unravel the mystery behind their ominous circumstances whilst being pitted against genetically engineered beasts, con men, pirates and, in true space opera style, aliens! It’s a character driven tale that starts small and soon ramps up to an adventure of epic proportions. And this is only the beginning!

Star Splinter is a humorous, action-packed adventure with dark undertones, but at it’s heart it’s a story about survival and the true worth of friendship.
