We had three very special authors who stepped up to help us with contributions for our Morganville Kickstarter last year, and we were so lucky to get to know them! Each of them not only contributed money, but also books for the set (which were lovingly handled by our actors in Episode 5) … and we wanted you to know more about them and their work.
BRYNA BUTLER: The Midnight Guardians Series
The Midnight Guardian series is a clean YA paranormal romantic mystery series. The first book, Of Sun & Moon, is currently free from Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iBooks, and other ebook retailers! The series is also available in paperback at major online bookstores.
About the books:
Over the years, humans have pieced together sighting and assumptions to create the myth of the tooth fairy. As it turns out, they were pretty much wrong.
Keira Ryan has the same worries as any other high school freshman…her classes are boring, she’s crushing on an older guy, her best friend is dating a spoiled cheerleader…and, oh yeah, she’s a tooth fairy destined to bring about the end of a royal line of vicious, blood-sucking tyrants.
Andrew Irvine: Affliction
Andrew’s stand-alone paranormal thriller falls right in line with Morganville sensibilities, and we’re delighted to tell you a little bit about this fun read! Here goes:
It’s the usual story. Girl meets girl. Girl arrests girl. Girl gets caught up in massive underground movement to liberate society from government oppression. Oh and there is the small matter of an albino werewolf wreaking havoc on the city…
In recent years the government has reluctantly acknowledged the existence and rights of werewolves in society. All the while brutally resisting a new ‘disease’ that is sweeping through the world, a sexually transmitted disease that gifts the afflicted with psychic powers.
‘Psi’ has become an underground phenomenon amongst the lonely, disenfranchised and those seeking a connection in their mundane lives. The government has responded with incarceration, ‘rehabilitation’ centres and in the most extreme cases execution of the afflicted.
Detective Sydney Summers went undercover to bust a major ‘Psi’ ring. She fell in love. She arrested her girlfriend and had her sentenced to death for her crimes. Now she is one of the afflicted herself. Sydney is also one of the Officers charged with protecting the public from this affliction. As a series of hate crimes and increasingly violent murders take place in her city Sydney is partnered with the handsome and enigmatic Federal Agent Michael Marsters to stop the killer. A killer Michael seems intimately familiar with, what secret’s is he hiding?
As Sydney’s psi abilities become critical to catching the killer she is faced with a terrible choice: stop the killer and expose herself, or have the blood of the innocent on her hands.”
- Rose: Desires (first in the Legacy Novel series)
- R. (or Roxanna, as she doesn’t mind being called) also sent us a fabulous mythic adventure/romance … the first in a series that will continue late 2014 and again in 2015!
“Desires” is the first in the Legacy Novel series. “Malevolence” will be released later this year and “Sacrifices” will be released in 2015. The cover art for all three books is by fantasy artist Julie Fain and the interior’s Celtic art is by acclaimed artist Jen Delyth.
Passion, betrayal, malevolence, and magic conjured from the depths of ancient Irish legends comes to life in this story about Eléan. Created by the ancient Celtic God, Dagda to please his beloved daughter, Brighid and gifted with a spark of her soul; Eléan is given the task of living in the mortal realm while being relentlessly hunted in a deadly desire for Otherworldly vengeance. She must control her legacy and save the immortal soul that lives within her.
Liam and James have been friends…brothers…since they were children. Now the Otherworld has been released into the Mortal Realm and it’s coming for Eléan, a woman they both love and would die to protect. Will it destroy them or will they find the strength to fight what’s coming?
Forced into the service of the Goddess Morrigan, Greagoir must be the vessel for her uncontrollable lust and killing rage. Eléan is the key to his freedom. All that stands in his way are two mortal warriors gifted by a goddess and a young woman’s desire to survive.
Ms. Rose has also generously donated a beautiful sterling silver moonflower necklace, crafted by a master jewelry maker and based on the flower in her novel … included in the giveaway to the lucky winner of her book!
