Publication date: October 15th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance
It’s the year 2216, and ever since Lydia Humsworth was little, she’s heard stories about electricity that used to light up skylines and planes that soared through the sky like birds. There were also stories about The Shift, which plunged the world into darkness nearly two hundred years ago and gave some people magical abilities. These people came to call themselves sorcerers.
Now, in the small village of Aldea, sixteen-year-old Lydia is training to be a Fighter in hopes of one day protecting her village. Her best friend, Daniel, spends his days working long hard hours on the farm. Humans and sorcerers have always seemed to coincide peacefully, but when Leonardo Kinch–a deranged sorcerer who blames humans for the death of his family–starts a war against humans, nothing is as they believed.

When war rages across the country, Lydia and Daniel must do everything they can to stop the war and stay alive, or risk the human race falling into extinction.

Relaxing: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Not every day is the same. Some days can be fun and cosy, like sitting on a great big sofa. And other days feel like being thrown at a giant cactus. Whether you’re going through a hectic project at work or you’re struggling with a complicated relationship at home, bad days happen to everyone. Stress is, unfortunately, a natural part of your day. As a result, most people have come up with their own coping mechanisms to escape stress. And thankfully, there are plenty of options for you to leave behind your worries and help your mind to relax. However, relaxing doesn’t come without risk. There is a healthy balance to maintain, namely relaxing is important, but not as much as learning how to manage your stress effectively. Here’s a little overview of how relaxing can sometimes put your health at risk.

Appreciating Yourself Just A Little More

Are you someone who always smiles when you look in the mirror? Maybe not, but you at least have something good to think whilst you’re there, right? Maybe you’re someone who can always be proud of what you achieved, because you know you’ve tried your best in whatever you’ve set your mind to, and you can look back with a sense of accomplishment?

But if you can’t do any of those things, then now’s the time to change your habits. You always need to appreciate yourself, no matter who you are or what you do, and you need to be strong enough to meet your own eyes in the mirror every day with a little bit of kindness! So with all that in mind, here’s a couple favourite tips for making sure you’re loving yourself in the best way possible.

When Stars Come Out Cover Reveal!


When Stars Come Out
Scarlett St. Clair
Publication date: October 31st 2018
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Anora Silby can see the dead and turn spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate ends up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s unpredictable behavior, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth–and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.

Why You Should Never Give Up Learning As An Adult




You may have thought your learning days were behind you. The minute you walked through those school gates as a teenager, celebrating the possibility that you may never have to look another teacher in the face again, you probably thought you had learned all you need to. Well, from a textbook anyway. We all learn something new about ourselves every day; it's all part of growing up and learning from experiences, so we are never too far removed from learning something.

But it's still important to pursue learning, whether that's going back to school, browsing the internet to expand our knowledge beyond the info we gain from our friends on Facebook, or picking up a book or two from the local store or library. Despite the everyday learning we all go through as adults - there are reasons why you should make the effort to tantalise your brain.
By continuing learning, you will…

What fate awaits a girl who hears monsters at night…

Sixteen-year-old Jaclyn looks up to her father. An honest man who once fought for the king, he now teaches Jaclyn how to use her wits—and her sword.

Upon hearing “monsters” are terrorizing the small villages around Black Mountain, Jaclyn’s father and his friends head out to hunt them … but they don’t return.

Armed only with her sword and three magic beans—a gift from a mysterious old woman—Jaclyn sets out for Black Mountain to save her father.

On her climb, one bean drops and grows into a beanstalk, catching her when she falls.

She isn’t the only one that takes the ride. Jack, her childhood friend and secret crush, is following her.

Together, Jaclyn and Jack must battle to save not only their fathers, but the townspeople the beasts plan to lay waste to before it’s too late.
