Fantasy Spotlights

Start this Paranormal Thriller Series

Eliza Lainn is the author of the Apparition Investigation series. She loves fantastical stories full of magic, mayhem, and monsters, though she's been known to read through some science fiction now and again. She has an unhealthy obsession with billowing coats, can't throw a battle axe to save her life, and daydreams constantly about what it would be like to have superpowers.

When not writing, she's probably losing at a new board game against her brother or going for meandering walks around her Texas town.

Transformation Fantasy Fiction

Astrid Vogel de Johnsson is a South African author and anthropologist now residing in Sweden. In early childhood, she showed an interest in reading and languages--interests which her family encouraged. Astrid started writing her first novel at age 12 and now writes high fantasy, exploring her passion for cultures and languages. She is fluent in five European languages. She is happily married with two adorable children. When she isn't writing, Astrid likes to read, take walks in nature, play silly games with her children, do embroidery, and play music.

Astrid writes transformation fiction: incorporating transformation principles in novels, rather than writing another self-help book. Astrid is also interested in minority group questions, considerations on social standards of beauty and the negative consequences these have, and would like to make the fantasy genre accessible to people of non-white, non-Christian backgrounds. Astrid feels the fantasy genre has become too restrictive with limited representations of race, ethnicity and culture. She seeks to explore other paths on this writing journey, incorporating her background in anthropology and psychology to create engaging experiences which also provide food for thought on the diverse topics she finds most important. These include: racism, minority rights, cultural diversity, culture change, intolerance, humanity's environmental impact and much more.

MM Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

Morgan Brice is the romance pen name of bestselling author Gail Z. Martin. Morgan writes urban fantasy male/male paranormal romance, with plenty of action, adventure and supernatural thrills to go with the happily ever after. Gail writes epic fantasy and urban fantasy, and together with co-author hubby Larry N. Martin, steampunk and comedic horror, all of which have less romance, more explosions. Characters from her Gail books make frequent appearances in secondary roles in her Morgan books, and vice versa.

On the rare occasions Morgan isn’t writing, she’s either reading, cooking, or spoiling two very pampered dogs. Series include Witchbane, Badlands, and Treasure Trail.

The next book, Loose Ends, should be out in December!

Unapologetic Romances Because Love Needs No Excuses

I love taking ancient tales of Irish and German origin and combining them with Native American myths like Spirit Animals to create something brand-new. Don't expect authenticity--instead look forward to excitement, action, and romance.

Growing up in Germany, I've always had a passion for myths and fairytales. No surprise then that I married an Irishman and lived 6 years in Ireland, the country of Leipreachán, Sidhe, Púca and other fascinating creatures. There's nothing like walking at night through a deserted laneway, fog swirling around your feet, knowing that maybe, just maybe, on the other side of the hedge, there might be some old lady in a black cloak waiting for you...

If you got the shivers right now, you know why I feel compelled to write stories around the supernatural and paranormal. There's nothing like a delicious shudder making you enjoy life just a little more... Plus I'm a romantic.

So look forward to modern romantic stories set against the background of ancient myths and legends. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!

Literary Fantasy by Benjamin Mester

I love writing that inspires.

Foundational to the human spirit is the love of a good story. A good story makes you yearn to live your best life, to fight for things worth fighting for, and be swept away in heroic events. I'm not one for shock and awe, but a story that builds slowly, using mystery, suspense and adventure to draw the reader along.

I hope you'll check them out! Want more? Check out his YouTube channel.

A kingdom in danger. An ancient weapon. And a cryptic secret that could change everything. The closing lines of a farewell poem, written centuries ago by the last great king of the old world, might prove to be more than it seems:

The world and all its light shall fade;
I'll stay with her beneath the shade
And wait until the world's remade...

Something is creeping at the fringes of the world. Is it just the talk of frightened villagers? Or is it something more? Enter the entirely new fantasy world of The Banished Lands! Now, for the first time, the complete series is on sale in one collected volume. The Banished Lands combines the best of epic fantasy, fairy tale, mythology, poetry, romance and mystery. If you love a good old-fashioned story, The Banished Lands will deliver on your expectations. Here's what reviewers of the individual books had to say:

Carpe Diem:
"Lyrically and beautifully written. An extraordinary story that fully engages the reader in the mystery, suspense and adventure found within. This talented author has created an exceptional fantasy world wherein the characters are vividly brought to life as they discover their history is different than they believed, and now face dangers both known and unknown. An excellent read, especially captivating when read aloud as the listeners hang on every word of this enthralling tale!

Yes, I have charmed by The Banished Lands – an amazing feat for this reader who doesn’t typically favor the fantasy genre! I am now looking forward to enjoying the continuation of this series!"
