Changing WorldsThe Contract
Prequel to the Fractured Series
By Melissa Barker-Simpson


After the Demonic War, a battle which devastated the mortal realm, humans now stick to the world’s major cities. To even the score, and to protect those cities, hunters joined together to establish cells across the globe. Maddison Wood is part of an alpha cell within the north of England.

Though a skilled fighter and powerful witch, Maddison can be brash, and unpredictable. She has a penchant for trouble, and is usually the first to volunteer in battle. When she accepts an assignment to protect the Hympe King, Tobias Locke, Maddison’s fate becomes bound to his. As the stakes change, and she finds herself trapped inside the bowels of an enemy camp, Maddison must fight for her freedom, her independence, and for a prisoner who has not seen the light of day for almost a century.

MelBio: Melissa Barker-Simpson

I’ve been writing since, well…since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I often look back on those earlier stories, and apart from laughing at the heavy-handed drama, or cringing at my inexperience, I am reminded that I have always lived in other worlds.

My first novel was published in 2008, and I love nothing more than working on a new project. The voices inside my head invariably pull me in different directions, so although I try to work on one thing at a time, those who know me would tell you it doesn’t always work!

I have a full-time job which, though does not involve writing per se, incorporates my love of language. As a British Sign Language Interpreter, I get to translate information between two languages which is (mostly) fun.

I have two beautiful daughters who bring me great joy. They also keep me grounded, because otherwise I would have my head in the clouds permanently!

Saunders’ Choice
A Natural Gifts Novella
By Gina Briganti


Saunders finds himself in a plane of existence called the Dreaming, where he encounters Velvet, the most exciting creature he will ever meet. The answer seems obvious, but Saunders’ life has never been easy.

Gina Briganti has been writing since she could hold a pencil. It has always been a comfort that to create she needs only three things; the pencil, the paper, and her imagination.

She lives in beautiful Joshua Tree, CA, the setting for her debut paranormal romance series, Natural Gifts.

Excerpt from The Contract:

The sound from the dining room was akin to the frenzied buzz of a hive. The voices were indistinguishable as two dozen people crammed around the table, and abandoned all sense of civility. It was so familiar Maddy felt a rush of affection for her motley crew.
“Nice light show earlier,” Riley said, as she took her customary seat.
Looking into a pair of mahogany eyes, as rich and dark as his skin, she feigned innocence. “How do you know it was me?”
“You’re kidding, right?” He snorted. “You just can’t help yourself.”
“Jealous, wolf-man?” When he flashed his teeth, she laughed good-naturedly. He was the best scout she knew, and had relied on his senses many times in the field. “I was interrupted before the grand finale, but I’m sure Dimitri picked up the reins.” Dimitri was a powerful empath, and though few could sneak past her defences, she trusted him enough to allow the intrusion. He needed to absorb some of her magic to pull it off. “I can’t deny my brothers a little-”
The noise in the room snapped off like a muted television channel. No, not muted, she thought as she stared around the table – someone had hit the pause button. It meant only one thing. Orion Reece was in the building.
Shit. Can this day get any worse?
She waited for the fireworks which usually accompanied his arrival. Orion enjoyed to flaunt his presence. He was a god of unrivalled power, one who followed no rules but his own. It was something he had in common with the Fractured, the dark souls responsible for the Demonic War. Rumour had it he’d aligned himself with Draco, their leader.
