Then tragedy strikes, leaving Venus with the impulsive, adorable Janus on her hands and a vengeance deal from the city’s Big Bad Witch. Turns out, brewing love potions is messy, but brewing mind-control concoctions for politicians… yeah, that’s next-level risky.

Meet Ffion, the last hedgewitch with zero interest in power games. She brews with wildflowers, not stolen sunlight, unlike the flashy witches at Foxhall. But magic’s flickering out across Wales, even the dragons have vamoosed, and Ffion’s simple life gets royally upended.
Enter Prince Tal, magic-hating, crown-chasing grump. His dad sends him on a mission: destroy the wall sapping magic from the land, and boom, instant king. The catch? He needs a witch’s help. Cue Ffion, who’s about as thrilled as a toad in a thunderstorm.

Nhika’s not used to silk sheets and fancy tea, but she soon discovers secrets about the case (and herself) that chill her blood colder than ice tea. Enter Ven Kochin, the handsome doctor’s assistant with eyes that sparkle like fireflies and a past as murky as a swamp. He both wants to know her and keep her at arm’s length, which is confusing even for a skilled bloodcarver.

Sci-fi fans, blast off with “Cascade Failure,” L.M. Sagas’ debut adventure ready to blow your mind (and spacesuit)! Think “The Expanse” meets Becky Chambers’ cozy vibes, with a dash of J.S. Dewes’ epic scale.
Corporate giants vs. worker unions? Yeah, that’s just Tuesday in this universe. But the Guild tries to keep the peace, even if it’s a bit… messy.
Enter Jal, a rogue Guild pilot who accidentally crashes onto their most unusual ship, the Ambit. Imagine an AI captain, a jack-of-all-trades engineer/medic, and a shoot-first XO – yeah, things get interesting fast.
Things get even weirder when they answer a distress call and find a whole planet full of… graves? Turns out, the Trust (those corporate guys) are up to something shady, and this dead rock is just the tip of the iceberg.
Now, the Ambit’s ragtag crew has a choice: play it safe or blast through space like a comet to stop the Trust and uncover the galaxy’s darkest secrets. Get ready for thrilling chases, vibrant alien worlds, and a whole lot of soul-searching about what it really means to be human. Trust me, “Cascade Failure” is a space opera you won’t want to miss.
Floating Hotel by Grace Curtis

Grace Curtis’ debut sci-fi is a total win, think comfy spaceships, quirky crewmates, and secrets swirling around like galaxies. Meet the Grand Abeona, a luxury hotel that hopscotchs across the Milky Way, catering to galactic jet-setters and hiding a whole lot of intrigue under its plush carpets.
Love poems popping out of thin air? Imperial spies disguised as bellhops? A shadowy conference buzzing with cryptic whispers? Yeah, the Abeona’s got more drama than a telenovela filmed on Mars. Plus, there’s Carl, our stowaway-turned-manager who loves this weird spaceship like it’s his family.
But when dark forces set their sights on the Abeona, Carl faces a gut-wrenching choice. Is it time to ditch his beloved floating home and blast off into the unknown? “Floating Hotel” is a heart-warming space adventure that’ll leave you pondering life, the universe, and whether room service on Mars is any good.

Meet Leslie Bruin, a fearless nurse from the Frontier Service. He’s been sent to the backwoods town of Spar Creek, where judging eyes and gossip are as thick as the fog. His job? Shots, babies, and maybe weathering some good ol’ fashioned small-town hate. But Leslie’s seen it all, from the trenches of war to the smoky cafes of Paris – he can handle anything, right?
Wrong. Spar Creek hides a darkness deeper than you can imagine. Something wicked lurks in the church pews, its sights set on a spunky kid they deem too wild. Violence hums in the air, waiting to explode. When Leslie rolls into town, he knows he’s gotta act fast. But these woods whisper secrets the wind won’t carry, and the mountains around Spar Creek have a mind of their own.
“The Woods All Black” is a powerful page-turner about passion, prejudice, and the fight for truth. It’s a story of standing tall, no matter the cost, set against the backdrop of rural America. Dive into a world where shadows dance and love burns bright – you won’t regret it!
A Botanical Daughter by Noah Medlock
March 19, 2024
Get ready for creepy plants, forbidden love, and Victorian secrets that bloom into full-blown horror in “A Botanical Daughter,” Noah Medlock’s debut chiller! (Think Mexican Gothic meets Frankenstein with a dash of Wilde and Shelley.)
Simon and Gregor, two Victorian dudes tucked away in a secret garden, are way closer than the Queen would approve. Simon’s into taxidermy (stuffed animals, not people!), while Gregor digs rare plants – his latest find? A brainy fungus that sparks a crazy idea: make a living plant person!
Driven by science and maybe a little glory, Gregor ignores the creeping red flags. Plants don’t talk, fungus isn’t friendly, and their “project,” Chloe, isn’t exactly a prize-winning rose. As the greenhouse gets steamy and the fungus goes wild, lines blur between who’s in control and who’s just fertilizer.
“A Botanical Daughter” is a wild ride of family, fungi, and revenge, all served with wit and warmth. Prepare for gothic chills, queer romance that blooms in the darkness, and a debut voice in horror you won’t forget!
Song of the Huntress by Lucy Holland
March 21, 2024

Herla’s in a pickle. Lovers, land, Romans – not a great combo. So, she makes a deal with the Otherworld king, hoping to save everyone. Bad news: time works funky there, and she returns centuries later to find everyone gone. Worse news: she’s now the Huntress, cursed to collect souls for eternity. Yikes.
But things get interesting when Herla runs into Queen Æthelburg, a Saxon ruler with eyes like glacial lakes and a magic problem of her own. Turns out, Britain’s got a big bad Otherworld problem creeping in, and only these two fierce ladies can stop it.
Herla’s gotta ditch the soul-sucking gig and reclaim her humanity before it’s too late. Æthelburg? She needs to unlock her ancient magic and keep her court from imploding. Together, they’ll face dead kings, dark forces, and maybe even fall for each other along the way. Get ready for a heart-pounding journey through ancient Britain, where myths come alive and warrior queens kick serious butt. “Song of the Huntress” is a must-read – don’t miss it!
