CONGRATS TO MELVINA, WINNER OF BEYOND THE VEIL by Rachel Coles!
Ever wonder if the people you meet on a paradise vacation are what they seem? Ever imagine that Valentine’s Day could be cursed, literally? What would it be like to be turned into a vampire and find that you couldn’t leave your old life behind, even if you wanted to? What about karma? If bad things we do could come back to haunt us, what about the good things? Did you ever wonder what inspired certain statues or pictures of art, or what pieces of the artists soul, went into their creations? This collection of short stories explores vengeance, closure, justice and other possibilities from beyond the grave.
CONGRATS TO SHERRI, WINNER OF ARTEMIS RISING by Cheri Lasota!
Torn between her father’s Catholicism and her mother’s Pagan beliefs, Eva finally chooses Paganism. She accepts the name of Arethusa but learns too late that her life will mirror the Greek nymph’s tragic fate. When they sail to the Azores Islands, her mother tells her that her destiny rests with Diogo, the shipowner’s son. But Eva sees a vision of another . . .
When the ship founders off the Azores, Tristan, a young Azorean, saves her. Destined to be with Diogo yet aching for Tristan’s forbidden love, Eva must somehow choose between them, or fate will soon choose for her.
Artemis Rising is a beautiful, seamless blend of two mythologies: the Arthurian legend of Tristan and Isolde, and the ancient Greek legend of Alpheus and Arethusa. It is a story filled with young romance, tragedy, forgiveness and attempts at redemption.

Life sucks for orphans Callum Tate and Harper Bailey.Kicked out of their foster homes because they suffer the ‘eighteen disease’ with nothing but a hundred dollar check from the government and a pat on the back, they’re forced to rely on a system that failed them miserably.So they sit. They sit inside Social Services, waiting for their social workers to call their names and offer them the miracle they know will never come but they sit anyway because they have nowhere else to go, no other options on their very literal and figurative empty plates.But as they sit, they notice the other. Although captivated, they each come to the conclusion that life is complicated enough without throwing in a boiling tension that can’t ever be acted upon because they’re both too busy thinking about where their next meal will come from but when their names are called and both are placed on a year long waiting list for permanent housing, suddenly relying on each other seems like a very viable plan B.And, oh, how lovely Plan B’s can be.
Well, except for the psycho from Harper’s past that haunts her and, oh, yeah, there’s the little issue that neither of them knows they’re in love with the other.
Needless to say, Callum & Harper’s life just got a bit more complicated.
