Twelve noblebright fantasy novels of beauty and wonder!

Noblebright fantasy characters have the courage to risk kindness, honesty, integrity, and love; to fight against their own flaws and the darkness of the world around them; and to find hope in a grim world.

This boxed set includes novels by:
C. J. Brightley – The King’s Sword: A disillusioned soldier. A spoiled, untried prince. And a coup that threatens the country they both love.
Lindsay Buroker – The Emperor’s Edge — A law enforcer being hunted for a crime she didn’t commit must work with a cold-hearted assassin to save the only person who can clear her name.
Sabrina Chase – The Last Mage Guardian: Most thought the Mage Guardians simply a myth, but their old enemy knows better–and of their number only one remains to thwart his plan of magical domination and revenge.
Francesca Forrest – Pen Pal: It starts with a message in a bottle and ends with revolution.
Kyra Halland – Beneath the Canyons: A bounty-hunting wizard and a rancher’s daughter with untrained powers must stop a renegade wizard who is tampering with dangerous magic.
Angela Holder – Into the Storm: A massive hurricane will destroy Elathir unless Larine and her fellow wizards sacrifice everything to stop it.
Ronald Long – On the Shores of Irradan: Ealrin Belouve and his friends travel to a new land and face new dangers in search of a tree that may restore magic to one of their own.
Mike Reeves McMillan – Hope and the Patient Man: A talented young mage must overcome a curse to be with the wounded hero who loves her.
T. A. Miles – Six Celestial Swords: The dragon Chaos threatens the magical world of Dryth. Xu Liang sets out on a quest to unite the only six magical blades that can save it.
Christina Ochs – Rise of the Storm: When a renegade priest prophesies an imminent apocalypse, a conflict is sparked which will tip a continent into war.
Sherwood Smith – Lhind the Thief: Lhind enjoys life on the run, taking what she wants, until her secrets are uncovered one by one.
Emily Martha Sorensen – The Keeper and the Rulership: In a world where mathematics and magic are forbidden, Raneh’s growing magic and can’t figure out how to stop.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Image

Beginning with the Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander and the Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. Leguin, Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. She has also always loved a good love story. In 1990, as a new stay-at-home mom with a young baby, she finally decided to combine those two loves – like chocolate and peanut butter! – by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read.

Complicated, honorable heroes; heroines who are strong, smart, and all woman; magic, romance, and adventure; and excursions into the dark corners of life and human nature mixed with a dash of offbeat humor – all of these make up Kyra Halland’s worlds. She is excited to share those worlds with readers, who she hopes will enjoy her stories and characters as much as she does.

Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, and two young adult sons. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAuthor Bio:

 

I’ve always loved to read more than anything in the world, especially so-called genre stories—mysteries, fantasy, sci-fi, thrillers, horror. I like books that take you by the hand and lead you out of the mundane. That ease back the curtain and show you the wondrous and dark and unexpected lurking just around the next corner. I worked in journalism for a long time before I returned to writing fiction. Guess which is more fun?

They are the light against the darkness.

The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.

And they use demons to hunt demons….

Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King’s elite Water Dogs is that they leash wicked creatures called daevas to protect the empire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister.

Scarred by grief, she’s willing to pay any price, even if it requires linking with a daeva named Darius. Human in body, he’s possessed of a terrifying power, one that Nazafareen controls. But the golden cuffs that join them have an unwanted side effect. Each experiences the other’s emotions, and human and daeva start to grow dangerously close.

As they pursue a deadly foe across the arid waste of the Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, unearthing the secrets of Darius’s past along the way, Nazafareen is forced to question his slavery—and her own loyalty to the empire. But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake…

A.J. Norfield lives with his loving family on land but below sea level. He tries not to worry too much about climate change and the melting of the polar ice caps. His wife and two rascals of children keep him engaged and grounded in life while he pursues goals of publishing a story that has been stuck in his head for years.

As a longtime forest and mountain enthusiast, he often wonders about his flat surroundings and how to escape them. In his free time, if available at all, he enjoys a wide variety of gaming, reading/writing, drawing and socializing. His interest in (dragon-fantasy) novels has followed him throughout his life ever since he was young enough to read. It was this interest—with a number of broken nights thanks to his daughter’s sleeping schedule—that eventually lead to his current undertaking to write his own dragon-fantasy series ‘The Stone War Chronicles’ and put it out into the world.

Inspired by established names like Anne McCaffrey, Terry Goodkind and Naomi Novik—to name only a few of many—he is ready to show the world what he has to offer.

Danger lurks around every corner: Warriors larger than any man, predators stalking them through the night and soldiers determined to hunt them down. Leaving them all little choice, except to keep moving as they strategically plot—and skillfully fight—their way back to those awaiting their return.

It is amazing how quickly a phone call can interrupt your life, even when you’re a werewolf. Rick Keller hangs up from the unwanted call, but the shadowy organization he once belonged to doesn’t take such an answer lightly. Waking up collared and caged by MONIKER is a quick way to learn retirement isn’t always permanent. Death will be if he doesn’t accept their assignment.

Keller and his new team follow a group of human traffickers on a thin trail across the globe. Their only hope is in a man who hasn’t had much practice being a werewolf in a really long time, a sadistic agent who loves making dog jokes, and a beautiful operative who is better with guns than relationships.
If being forced back into service wasn’t bad enough, he quickly discovers they have many new experiments to try out on their pet wolf. Even worse, MONIKER now isn’t the only one who knows his secret.

Hopefully an old dog can learn some new tricks, especially if he wants to stay alive.

A clockwork raven. Two sets of irresistible teeth. A house brought to life by nanobots. A heart that won’t stop beating. All this and much more in the Writerpunk Press version of the beloved suspense stories by Edgar Allan Poe. We’ve pulled out all the stops this time around to bring you the very best punked versions of classic Poe tales, complete with shiny gears and tiny bots! In addition to the more familiar Cyberpunk and Steampunk, we’ve added Bio, Deco, and Dieselpunk genres to the mix. The resulting volume is a dynamic take on horror of which the Master of Macabre himself would be proud. Profits are to be donated to PAWS Lynnwood, an animal shelter and wildlife rescue located in the Pacific Northwest.

interview

 

 

  1. How did you get started in writing?

I’ve been writing for a long time, but once my daughter was born (2014), I decided to leave full-time employment and become a WAHM—that’s “Write At Home Mom.” I soon learned that my pre-delivery plans were thrown into chaos by LJ’s arrival, but now that she’s a little older, I’m able to carve out a routine and stick to it.

I started submitting short stories a few years ago, and eventually built up to a resume of pieces that had been accepted into a variety of markets—paying, charity, token paying magazines and anthologies. I finished a novel, Cold Run, which was published by Untold Press, and am currently working on a novel, a short story collection of steampunk detective pieces, and a number of other short stories. The latest of the steampunk detective series will be appearing in Merely This and Nothing More: Poe Goes Punk, which will be released May 31 from Writerpunk Press.

 

  1. Who is your favorite character?

This is such a tough question! Of the characters I’ve written, I’m very partial to Detective Mignon Boudreaux. She’s a veteran, a tinker—smart, tough, and capable—who keeps going after the truth of the matter, even when it’s not politically convenient for her boss.

As for characters written by others, one of my absolute favorite is Puck, from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. There is so much magic and almost a euphoric sadness that permeates the “dream.” I’ve always wanted to see a steampunk version of the play, as I think the two aesthetics would meld very well.

 

  1. Who is your favorite author?
    This is another tough question. I think my favorite authors change depending on what I’m into at the moment. Lately, I’ve been re-reading the Harry Potter series, and realizing how much I love J.K. Rowling for making me care about all of her characters—even the inherently unlikeable ones. That takes true talent.
  2. When do you usually write?
    If I don’t write in the morning, it becomes very difficult for me to sit down at my desk and work. Luckily, I have access to day care for a few hours a day, which allows me to get a good workout in, and then shower, change, and head to Starbucks to get my writing done for the day. If I hit 1K in an hour or two, I reward myself with something sweet!

 

  1. Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?.

I’ve tried, and sometimes it works, but in the past few months, I can’t do it. For some reason, I’ve started to find it very distracting. I love music, but not when I’m writing.

 

  1. What books have most influenced your life?

Sitting here on my couch, looking over at my bookshelf, I see some HP Lovecraft (scared me silly as a kid,) Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (my dad shared his love with us and it rubbed off), Redwall by Brian Jacques (one of my absolute favorites since I read it as a teenager), and a collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories. I think what they have in common is that they are all great fiction, with characters that have stayed with me long after I closed the covers … until I went back and opened them again.

 

  1. What are you passionate about these days?

I’m currently training for a sprint triathlon in June, which will be my first time attempting this sort of endurance event. I’m very nervous about it, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to try, so wish me luck! I’m also currently finishing a novel, Steel-Toed Blues, about a blues guitarist and Army veteran who starts to stumble over the border between this world and the Faerie realm. Additionally, I’m also working up a class on how to write better fight scenes; my first workshop is this Saturday! Last, I’ve had a chance to read the ARC of the Poe Goes Punk anthology, and I’m very excited for its release—I think that this is one of my favorite projects that I’ve been able to be a part of.

 

Thanks for having me!
