She is needed to help defeat evil within the catacombs of Rome. But when she arrives in Rome, she meets Alexander – the man of her dreams!

2. A signed paperback copy of “Tapestry” by Solitaire Parke and a special-made bookmark (US Only)
A collection of over 200 poems written in a style often compared to that of Edgar Allan Poe.“Tapestry is a vivid sojourn inside the mind of the poet. His inspirations, hopes and fears come to life through a series of interlacing poems which depict his life and careers, his loves and disappointments, and his successes. Great to ponder in the wee hours of any long and lonely night.”
Included is a special-made bookmark featuring the poem “Solitaire” and signed by Solitaire Parke.
3. An eBook copy of “A Hint Of Murder: The Writer” by Lia Fairchild (International)
Alicia Fairfield didn’t plan on being famous. Now a bestselling author with millions of fans, Alicia also has the attention of a killer. Someone has been recreating the murders from her books and the suspects are piling up; her mentally ill son, a disgruntled associate, and possibly even her loyal literary agent. The pressure of public recognition along with the guilt over these senseless killings could be enough to drive Alicia over the edge. Can she hold it together long enough to uncover a killer?
This is a short story (9,000 words), and is the first in Lia’s exciting Murder Mystery Series.

Caron Rider’s, “Silver Knight,” constitutes book one in the Silver Series. Diana, the lead character is an unfortunate soul, either gifted or cursed to hop scotch through time with the dubious job of hunting and killing demons wherever they are found. Inexorably drawn to important times in history, and generally being victimized by them, she is helped and sometimes hindered by the very entities that she hunts.
The story bounces back and forth through historical events, telling them in such a way that the reader is challenged to determine how much is truly fact and how much is fiction. Caron’s descriptions are rich and thick with environmental backdrops that both add and give motivation to the story. The back and forth method of storytelling has been one of my personal favorites through my life, so this book appealed to me both at the intellectual and the emotional levels.
Aided by her friends, Sam and Maggie, Diana’s life almost comes across as a parody when compared to theirs. The result is a fresh approach to good vs. evil, light vs. dark, where the line drawn between them becomes faded and sometimes lost. In the end you’re not sure who to root for, proving that truth and following the light is not as easy as it looks. I genuinely had a good time reading this book and look forward to the second installment! Great job Caron!!
