Excerpt from Lamp of Light by Alex H. Sigh

As she ran, the blood pounded in her ears, and her mind strayed far away, back to the beginning of the string of events that led to her current predicament. There was no way she could have envisioned such a turn of events. What had started as an effort at solidarity and peace, a joining of powerful families to save a dying Kingdom had steadily dissolved, revealing an evil of such tremendous proportions that she could never have possibly known.”
She scanned the group again. She sighed inwardly, he had brought a lot of men to meet their deaths and he didn’t even know it yet. It was all well and fine. What she required was a chance for a show of strength for the entire Kingdom to see, and he’d provided the perfect opportunity for her. The leaders o
f the family all stared at her with undisguised contempt. She longed to wipe the look off of their faces.”
He’d never been too attracted to any woman before and it scared him. He’d always considered himself a master of the total control. Nothing could make him go above and beyond except he totally wanted to. Nothing could make him give up control at any point in time, no matter how important. He laughed sombrely wondering how easily his principles had faded when faced with the insanely perfect brightness she exuded. Her essence had given him reason to have a rethink of his principles.”

Excerpt from Alys of Asgard by Catherine Banks

I pushed a button, but it made the screen change to a loud angry black and white vibrating movie. I yelled in surprise and covered my ears while closing my eyes.
The ground vibrated and then the noise stopped. I opened my eyes to find Stevens standing with the remote in his hand. He had changed into another set of weird clothes, but at least they were more normal looking than his other set. He had on a pair of blue pants and a shirt that matched the color of his eyes, turquoise. I was excited that I could remember the names of the items and colors, but I didn’t say anything out loud to him. Now that I saw him closer, he was very handsome. “You okay?” he asked me.
I nodded my head. “I tried to use it, but it got mad, I guess.”

About C.A. Gray

C.A. Gray is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD), with a primary care practice in Tucson, Arizona. She has always been captivated by the power of a good story, fictional or otherwise, which is probably why she loves holistic medicine: a patient’s physical health is invariably intertwined with his or her life story, and she believes that the one can only be understood in context with the other.

Her favorite fictional tales have always been epic battles of good versus evil, with a strong tendency towards parable. An idealist herself, she has always been convinced that these stories have something deeply true to tell us about the human condition, and that is why we love them so much… or at least that’s why she does.

She still wants to be everything when she grows up. She moonlights as a college chemistry teacher (she has a degree in biochemistry, with minors in Spanish and Creative Writing), does theater when she gets the chance, sings, plays piano, was once a personal trainer and in coffee shop management. She is blessed with exceptionally supportive family and friends, and thanks God for them every single day!

About Catherine Banks

Catherine is a Northern California native and has lived within a twenty mile radius her entire life. She plans to travel to as many places as possible in her thirties to make up for her lack of traveling experience.

About Kelly Hashway

Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didn’t stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative fiction for young adults, middle graders, and young children. Kelly is also USA Today bestselling romance author Ashelyn Drake. When she’s not writing, Kelly works as an editor and also as Mom, which she believes is a job title that deserves to be capitalized.
