I should be worried about the dragon.

Dragons are known for cruelty. For fire and carnage. And here I am, chained up outside this one’s lair, wearing flimsy finery, waiting for a monster.

Did I agree to this?

Why can’t I remember?

Or seem to care?

Something here is not at all as it should be. I wish I could figure out what. Preferably before a terrifying beast has me for lunch. 

Dragonpets: The Sacrifice is the first book in R. L. S. Hoff’s new YA fantasy series, which features strong young women in a society not ready for them. It contains significant, but clean romantic elements.

A teenage runaway, New Orleans, 90s alt ballads, and emerging magical powers—this summer is shaping up to be anything but normal.

Miranda, feeling like danger could be lurking, runs away to New Orleans. New friendships and a job singing as the opener for a drag show, reveal to her how fun life can be. When her friends begin to develop their own powers, and the world erupts, staying off the authorities’ radar becomes more difficult. An unforeseen romance with a young woman compounds the complications. Bittersweet, real, and humorous, this novel is an exploration of love, found family, and how the world might react to supernaturally powerful women.

Reece had a thirst for the adrenaline rush that came with taking risks. He’d avoided paying the price for most of his push of the envelope until he met one person that used his lust for fast cars, wicked weapons, ditching school, and beautiful girls to trap him in the most seductive ways. Someone he least expected put her life in danger to save him from himself, and he wouldn’t waste her sacrifice. Reece would use the anger fueled by the strikes to an innocent to start the beginning of the turn of justice that would change the course of his life. He hoped his family could forgive him for the deal that put a target on their heads.

High School never prepared Evan for anything like this.One minute, Texas. Next minute, fairyland. To get back home, he has to complete three quests for the queen of the elves. Each quest is a near-impossible task to defeat fearsome beasts or overcome impossible odds. The chance of Evan succeeding is just like a fairytale, Grimm. Evan’s one advantage is that in Stellaluna, he can learn anyone else’s magic, but he has to find someone to teach him. There is no knight school for apprentice wizards, so he’ll have to get creative. Perhaps he can strike a deal. Deals with elves always work out well, right?It’s a magical romp across the realm with mischievous sprites, devious elves, and a crazy old wizard who’s a few ants short of a picnic.

Ashley Pagano has always dreamed of being an artist both figuratively and literally. Her love of art was instilled by her mother who always inspired her to be creative either with a paintbrush or with a pen and paper. As far back as she can remember her life was always centered around introspection, storytelling, and imagination. Because she is so artistic, she took to the idea of creative writing very passionately. Her ability to describe a scene, person, or place, she compares to painting a picture, where she can describe every detail vividly in order to make the reader feel like they’re truly living in the story. Her works of writing usually center around a powerhouse female protagonist (which reflect her own personality), who progresses through many wild and extreme obstacles. Ashley loves to write stories that end with a cliffhanger, that have the reader begging for more and questioning what happens next. Her most recent novel sets the stage for the supernatural romance of the century and includes fairies, vampires, werewolves, witches, and shapeshifters who just love to get in the way of true love. Ashley has won awards for her design, art, and writing. 

Ashley doesn’t believe in down time whatsoever and actually loves having a full “To-Do”list. Ashley is a wife to her wonderful husband, Eric and a mother to two beautiful girls named Dakota and Ember. She is also a Graphic Designer and a health and fitness coach. Her husband and daughters inspire her to be the best person she can be and encourage her to pursue any of her dreams (no matter how extravagant they may be).

Who knew that taking a job at a High School Newspaper would weave Rei into an underground news operation? She’d stupidly sacrificed her family and was blackmailed into becoming a member of a Vigilant operation to save the unsuspecting human population in what most thought was Newport, RI. Rei was no longer living in ignorance, but knowledge came with a price. Love wasn’t an emotion she could give into when the ransom of her family’s life was at stake. Asher was sent to help her, but she felt he was sent to ensure she paid the debt owed in order to save her family. Rei didn’t relish being held hostage by Megan and her puppets or being thrust into interfering with a war instigated by magical beings, and their fight to control humanity. Rei had no idea how she could create a diversion that would save her, destroy an unimaginable evil, and teach her to love – again.

Dexter didn’t like being a pawn. It seems life was taking him there though. He and his father never saw eye to eye, but being captured and tortured for his father’s mistakes gave Dexter too much to think about. First, the girl he lost; he’d never forget what they did to her. It changed him, and made him see the small city where his father moved him was a prison for magicals, the damned, and now him. Too bad, the creator of the Void didn’t realize they would be better off if they’d set him free, because now he was fighting for his life, and someone he’d have to hide his feelings from to protect, not just from those that want to drag them back, but from himself—a vigilant.

Gravediggers actually do the digging. Grave Diggers, however, keep buried bodies where they belong—six feet under.

It’s Makayla’s second year in the paranormal academy system, and she isn’t returning alone. No one made the honour roll last semester, and the coveted transfer position was withheld. It’s a good thing, too—GDA needs participants for the inter-academy face off. A win could bring back prestige and funding the institution so desperately needs. A loss, however, would close its doors forever.

This year’s students are about to learn there’s more to their Academy than meets the eye. Something isn’t right about the competition. It smells of the rot and decay only a freshly unearthed corpse could cause. Lucky for them, death is right up their alley.

About C.A. King

I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger. 

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years. 

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes—I want them to know they are making a difference. 

Fast forward to today…
