Up first is the The dangerously dark fantasy The Dark Archer by Robert Cano.
Up next we have the contemporary realism The Smoke in His Eyes by Shane Wilson.
When TJ—a musical prodigy—witnesses a traumatic event as a child, his senses are overrun with intense hallucinations. Over the years, his visions increase in frequency and intensity, but he hides them from those he is closest to, including his best friend and musical partner, Lila, who challenges TJ to reject formulaic creation in order to create something beautiful and unique. But when Lila signs a record deal, TJ feels left behind and alone with his art and his visions.
That’s when TJ meets an artist named Muna. In his eyes and visions, Muna is made of smoke, and as this magical woman helps him learn how to manage his visions and how to translate what he sees and hears into music and lyrics, she begins to disappear. His journey into Muna’s past is a journey to discover where inspiration originates and what happens to an artist when that inspiration is gone.

Up next the romantic Sands of Time series returns with The Pirate and the Princess by Tim and Kathy Hunt.
When Kathy agreed to read Tim’s latest book as he was writing his tale of piracy and royalty, she never could have imagined the passionate story that would open up to her.
Kathy read the story of Lord Roanoke Westwind, a pirate. His world of pillage and plunder was turned upside down when fate took his ship broadside that of Princess Isabelle Millicent Heatherby. They had been friends until Lord Westwind’s disappearance more than twenty years earlier.
A spark lit in the cold heart of the dreaded pirate, known to the world as “The Dragon”.
Kathy delighted in the story of the Pirate and the Princess. As she read, she noticed the unmistakable resemblances between the princess, Belle, and herself. She was excited that Tim was using her likeness as the heroine in the book, but then she noticed something else. She could see that Roanoke was in fact Tim.
Kathy questioned Tim about it. Tim replied, “All my life I have been just Tim. At any other place or time, I am just Tim. So when I write, I am always the hero. I have never been anyone’s hero, anyone’s knight in shining armor, anyone’s handsome prince, so I write myself in my fairytales.”
The couple fall in love and write their own love story in the pages of passion. The two stories unfold in exciting similarities up to the royal wedding and the merging of two hearts, two lives and two stories. Love comes forth in it’s own way, it’s own time and just as it was meant to be, written in the sands of time.

Our final offering is the Eldritch horror The Quality of Mercy by GL McDorman
When a ruthless gangster threatens his old military friend, hardboiled detective Paul Henslowe intervenes… only to find himself working for a client on the wrong side of the law. When a series of cryptic blackmail letters plunges Henslowe into a decades-old murder, he follows a trail that leads him from a mysterious cult leader in the South Seas to a decaying lunatic asylum nestled among the City’s most powerful banks. Henslowe knows that if he doesn’t solve the case, his friend will die… but if he does, many others will die in his place.
The Quality of Mercy is an eldritch tale of madness and betrayal that asks whether kindness and mercy can survive in a world so corrupted by greed and violence.
