Presence: Awakening

Mina Jewel swears the boogeyman slaughtered her abusive stepfather. But as far as the quiet town of Port Orchard, Washington is concerned, Mina is a cold-blooded killer and Cadric Jaden had been a saint. After enduring nine years of psychiatric care and whispers of her guilt, Mina is hell-bent on clearing her name, exposing Cadric for the sadistic pedophile he really was, and uncovering the true identity of the strange being who saved her life. Through a whirlwind of near-death experiences and sanity-sha

Presence: Wolf Mooon

A rogue werewolf threatens the safety of Port Orchard, Washington, but all Mina Jewel can think about is the sudden flood of unrelated missing children cases. Between her private eye gig, a rash of unexplained and debilitating health issues, and her duties to Presence--an underground society of psychic investigators and practitioners--Mina barely has time to deal with her screwed-up private life. Time is running out for the little ones, and Mina knows it. Frustrated with her lack of leads, Mina becomes care

Presence: Smoke and Fire

When the Port Orchard police come to Mina Jewel for help, she knows it should be an interesting case. But not even the promise of a preternatural mystery can keep her interest very long with all the other crap on her plate. A sudden rush of missing teens and no clues to track them with, an enemy from her past resurfacing without warning, and a life-shattering revelation bring Mina face to face with one of her worst fears. And all this before she's even recovered from losing her baby or truly accepting her

Presence: Into the Dark

Someone is messing with Mina Jewel's head, and she's about to crack. Desperate for a solution, but worried about backlash if her hunch is wrong, Mina steps outside of Presence to seek answers to an impossible question. What she discovers will obliterate everything she's ever known about Presence, her family, and herself. But Mina doesn't have time for self-pity or to rage at the world. The future of one innocent child hangs in the balance. To right the wrong, Mina must make a choice, knowing that liv

Brother Toad and the Giants

Giants are mean and hate everyone; dragonflies are food, not friends; and nobody is as important as the toads. That's what the Wise One says, at least. But one curious little toad, fresh from the pond, asks, "Why?" In fact, he has a lot of questions, so Brother Toad sets off into the Big Wide World, seeking answers. Along the way, however, he finds trouble. . . big trouble. When the giants pollute and destroy his wetlands, it's up to Brother Toad to save his family. With the help of some unlikely

Birds Town Presents: Chick Rebuilds

When the evil Bloodhound Cat Gang destroys Bird's Town and kills or enslaves most of the inhabitants, Chick, a brave little bluebird, follows his instinct to the peaceful island of Green Valley, far from any feline danger. Or so he thinks. While Chick tries to rebuild his life and Aviaria-a safe haven for all birds-he discovers that Green Valley has a dark secret all its own. An ancient avian civilization vanished, seemingly, without a trace. Further exploration of the island uncovers a trail of vague c

Blyssfully Abnormal

What happens when you challenge a group of fiction writers to take an everyday, normal, ho-hum situation and give it a smack upside the head? The answer is a trip into the sometimes dark, sometimes goofy-but always entertaining-alternate reality we call our minds. These playgrounds in our brains, these forests of many delights, this is where writers dwell. This is where we tend the gardens of the obscure, the weird, the unexpected. This is the state in which authors truly live and breathe, at home among our
