Action/Adventure

The Young Adventurers’ Club by Mike Gomes

There is extraordinary power that lies within us all. We just need someone to let it out.

Sawyer and Lainie Dray are average every day kids with the same problems any other twelve and ten year old have. But that all changed one day when a mysterious stranger arrived in their home with an offer that was too good to pass up.

What follows is a wild ride that goes into the secret world of spies and intrigue. Few have ever learned that there is an organization that goes beyond just one country and defends the world as a whole. This organization is The Young Adventurers’ Club!

On the other side of the law is Destructo, an evil organization that is hard at work causing chaos across the world. The only thing that has ever stood in their way is the Young Adventurers’ Club. But this time Destructo has a plan to take control and have their way with the world. If Destructo succeeds the world and everything we know will never be the same.

Humorous Romance

Love and Muddy Puddles (A Coco and Charlie Franks Novel Book 1) by Cecily Anne Paterson

Thirteen year old fashionista Coco Franks has finally made it into the popular group when her dad decides to move the whole family to the country so they can ‘bond’. Social death is looming, her shoes are covered in mud and all Coco wants to do is get herself back to her city friends. After all, things can’t get any worse, right? It’ll take a boy with no dress sense and totally hick boots, and a contrary horse called Cupcake to bring Coco to her senses. But it might just be too little, too late. Love and Muddy Puddles is humorous realistic fiction aimed at children aged 10-14 and horse lovers everywhere. Set in Australia, this clean teen romance is a funny and inspiring story of how a horse – and a change of perspective and heart – can change a young person’s life. Love and Muddy Puddles is the third novel by Australian writer Cecily Anne Paterson. Her first novel, Invisible, also a clean, realistic story for girls and teenagers, was called an ‘exquisitely written story’ by Publisher’s Weekly reviewer of teenage fiction, and was a semifinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards in 2014.

Urban Fantasy

Fresco by Patti Larsen

“Do you know what happened to you?” Joey’s voice broke a little. Fresco shook his head. The kid nodded, like it was no big surprise. “Yeah, me either. No one seems to. We just have normal lives, you know? Then suddenly you wake up with this thing eating into you,” he swallowed hard, “and that’s it. The rest is Wasteland.”

Seventeen-year-old Fresco Conte is an ordinary All-American kid from an upper middle-class family. He plays football. His girlfriend is a cheerleader. Life is good. Until unexplained things, scary things, start to take him over. Like surviving an accident that should have killed him. Or hearing the thoughts of the people around him whether he wants to or not. When the men in the dark blue coveralls come for him, Fresco is forced into addiction to the blue joy known as Wasteland and set free on the street, with no answers and only his hunger to keep him company.
