book cover for Cusp of Night, a mystery/suspense novel by Mae Clair

Recently settled in Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore, especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual “Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone dressed like the Fiend.

Compelled to discover who is behind the attack and why, Maya uncovers a shortlist of enemies of the Hode clan. The mystery deepens when she finds the journal of a late nineteenth-century spiritualist who once lived in Maya’s house—a woman whose ghost may still linger.

Known as the Blue Lady of Hode’s Hill due to a genetic condition, Lucinda Glass vanished without a trace and was believed to be one of the Fiend’s tragic victims. The disappearance of a young couple, combined with more sightings of the monster, trigger Maya to join forces with Leland’s son Collin. But the closer she gets to unearthing the truth, the closer she comes to a hidden world of twisted secrets, insanity, and evil that refuses to die . . .

Cover Reveal: Quantum Wanderlust – A Short Story Anthology #CoverReveal #anthology #scifi

I’m so excited to reveal this cover – isn’t it beautiful?  I was asked to contribute a short story to this anthology, and when I learned it was about time travel, I jumped  on board.  Ever since I watched my first Planet of the Apes movie (thanks, Dad!), time travel has always been a favorite topic of mine.  Quantum Wanderlust will be available for FREE sometime around the end of this month – will keep you posted.

Spring Forward, Fall Back

That reminds you of changing the clocks, right? When we talk about the passage of time, it’s usually in short bursts—seconds, minutes, hours—. Or slightly longer chunks—weeks, months, years.

What if it was limitless? What if you could go forward or back, in any size segment you wanted? Decades, centuries, eons? Would you go back and change your life? Go forward and see your future?

We are excited to share thirteen short stories crafted by very talented authors that will take you forward and back through time.

If you could travel through time, what would you do?

My Cover Reveal – and ARCs #TuesdayBookBlog

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know I’ve been working on a book for a few years (earlier attempts will never see the light of day).  Back in August, I mentioned it was finally being published – and here’s the cover!  I think the designer did a fantastic job and I’m really pleased with it.


Seventeen-year-old horror fan Cain Shannon thought helping a ghost find her killers would be the supernatural adventure of a lifetime. Now, he just hopes to survive long enough to protect his family and friends from her.

A bet between friends goes horribly wrong, resulting in Sarah’s death. When she returns to seek justice against those responsible, Cain agrees to help her. But when he discovers Sarah has been hijacking his body, he realizes she wants retribution instead of justice. 

Terrified of what could have happened when he wasn’t in control, Cain commands Sarah to leave his house – but exorcising her isn’t that easy. She retaliates against her murderers in bloody, horrific ways, each death making her stronger, then sets her sights on Cain. With the help of friends, Cain fights to save himself and his loved ones and searches for a way to stop Sarah before she kills again.

The paperback copy of Sarah is scheduled for publication December 1st and the ebook December 7th, both available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  Currently, preorders are available with a 10% discount through the publisher’s website HERE.  

Sarah is a YA horror/thriller laced with some humor.  I’m taking requests for Advanced Reader Copies, so if you’re interested, please email me at tpolen6@gmail.com – I only ask that you review it after publication.   I have a PDF, but if anyone knows a quick way to convert, I beg you to share it with this computer skills-challenged individual!

The Last Orphans (The Last Orphans Series Book 1)

 One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving
their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific
aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in
his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a
large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly
Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have
never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find
is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the
annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends
are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up
planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out
there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

other teenage survivors in a hidden base set deep within the mountains,
they will learn how to repel an imminent attack by an ancient race of

Determined to safeguard the children under their charge, Shane and his friends compete for the ultimate prize—a suicide mission against the flagship of the alien fleet. While Shane’s feelings for
Kelly deepen, along with his need to protect her, he finds emotions
clouding his judgment. He’ll gladly die for her. But he refuses to die
with her. No amount of training can prepare them for what is to come.

Cover Reveal: First Choice, Second Chance by Fallon Brown

FirstChoiceSecondChanceSmallerWebUse (1)


Title: First Choice, Second Chance

Series: Kurztown(#1)

Cover Designer: Marianne Nowicki(http://www.premadeebookcovershop.com/)

Release Date: 8/18/2015



One wrong choice doesn’t have to lead to another

Seven years ago, he watched her drive away.

Lila Corelli was the love of Mason Akeley’s life, but she chose a music career and another man over him. He thought it would destroy him, but he’s been scraping by; on the family farm and in life. Now, she’s back in town, and he feels like he’s barely hanging on.

She made a wrong choice.

Lila knows she made a mistake. She thought she had been on the right path; to her career, love, her life. Instead, she never saw the disaster one wrong choice could cause. Now, with everything gone, she returns to her hometown, hoping to find her way to a new path.

Mason’s love for Lila has never died, but he’s afraid to open himself to be hurt again. Lila chose the wrong future once, and she worries she’ll be making another bad choice that will only lead to more destruction. But, if they can untangle their past from their present, they just might be able to find their future together.


Excerpt:  He held up a hand to stop her. “Give me a shot of Jack.” He caught Lila at the edge of his vision. “Actually make it a double.”

Jess hesitated then poured the drink and passed it over to him. He took the first sip and winced at the burn. He wasn’t sure if he would ever get used to it. The whiskey warmed the parts of him that had gone cold with Lila’s arrival. He kept his eyes focused on the wall across the bar as he took the second sip. He still knew the moment she stepped up beside him. He didn’t know if her scent still lived in his memory and he recognized it, or if it went deeper. He didn’t even have to hear her voice. It was in his head, in his dreams, every day and every night. When she ordered a drink, it twisted around his heart again.

His fingers tightened around the glass. He was almost afraid it would shatter right there in his fist. He dragged in some air through his nose, but it only came back out sounded strangled. He started to turn away. He needed to put some space between them. He couldn’t handle having her so close. As soon as he took a step, her hand was on his arm, the muscles in it cording tighter. “Mason.”

He was going to explode, shatter into tiny pieces no one would ever be able to put back together again. He had to get away. He didn’t even respond to her saying his name. He set the glass on the top of the bar. It must have been harder than he planned because a crack sounded when he did it. He didn’t even look back. “Put it on my tab, Jess. All of it.”

His head pounded. He didn’t think it was the alcohol or the music. It was Lila. It had always been Lila. He pushed out through the door. Then braced his hand against the side of the building and squeezed his eyes shut. The door opened again, and he didn’t even look behind him. Instead he strode across the small parking lot to his truck. She called his name again, but he didn’t stop. He checked his mirror to make sure she wasn’t right behind him, he certainly didn’t hate her that much. She still stood close to the building. She had her arms wrapped around her, and stared after him. His eyes started to burn. Then, he backed out of his parking spot and pulled out of the lot. The gravel spun under his tires, but he didn’t care. He wanted to put distance between them. Before he lost the grip he barely kept on his sanity.

EMERGENCE Cover Reveal!

Can’t wait for this book!

Michael Patrick Hicks

In a few more weeks, Emergence will be making its way onto reader’s Kindles (or hands, if they prefer print). I’ll also be sending copies off to advanced reviewers and my newsletter subscribers (hint: you can sign-up for that here) prior to the official release on May 4.

A little bit of time has passed between Convergence and this sequel, in both the real world and in my little DRMR bookverse, but Emergence is very much a continuation of the story begun in the prior novel. This is definitely a Read In Order kind of series. But, Emergence is also a little bit different than its predecessor – there’s lots more action, a good deal of technological horrors run amok, and a bit of a shake-up to the cast. Jonah Everitt was the main protag in Convergence, but his daughter, Mesa, is the central lead this time around.

Torn (Bound Trilogy Book Two) by Kate Sparkes

Aren Tiernal knows that safety is an illusion, that his cruel and powerful brother will never forgive his betrayal. Still, returning to Tyrea to challenge Severn for the throne would be suicide. It’s not until Severn himself comes to collect what’s owed to him that Aren decides to risk everything in an attempt to bring down the most powerful Sorcerer Tyrea has ever known. The mission seems doomed to fail, but it’s Aren’s only chance to save himself, his country, and the woman who thawed his heart.

Rowan Greenwood has troubles of her own. Though she should be a great Sorceress, years of being closed off from her magic have left her unable to control her incredible power. When a pair of ominous letters arrive from her home country, Rowan has to choose between her new life and a chance at saving her family—and just maybe changing an entire country’s beliefs about the evils of magic.

Torn apart by separate quests, Rowan and Aren will have to discover untapped strengths and confront their darkest fears in order to overthrow a ruler determined to destroy them both.
