  Taking a girl’s voice is the same as taking her power.

This is a memoir about love and loss, secrets and lies. When a young girl from a broken family meets a charming man, she attempts to build a new life. But after a whirlwind marriage and the birth of two sons, their love story rips apart at the seams.

Exploring the impact of parents’ sins on the lives of children and the fates we endure for the chance to be loved, the story follows a mother navigating motherhood and womanhood – an abuse survivor emerging and learning to speak, to scream, to sing to her own wounded heart and to finally understand what it takes to be whole after breaking to pieces. Weaving the present and past together, the author reveals her truth in hauntingly evocative scenes.

As surely as the sun shines behind the grayest clouds, healing comes drop by drop. Like petals of rain.

DragonMan Series

 
 
Series Intro:
DragonMan is not your typical Superman/Batman comic-style adventure. 
It is about the adventures of Luke Starr, a superhero, yes, but he is so much more than that.
These are all stand-alone adventures, He and his sisters solve crimes and mysteries. They run Starr investigations detective agency. The audience for these books range from 7-16 years old, but can still be enjoyed by people of all ages. 
The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.
It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.

 
 
The Adventures of Luke Starr
DragonMan Series Book 1
by Ted Lazaris
Genre: Middle- Grade Fantasy 
 
Recommended for pre-teens all the way up to an adult, who want to forget about work tomorrow and lose themselves in a great story.

The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century, when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania but into the American certainty that the horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.

It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.
 
 
 
 
The Poseidon Encounter
DragonMan Series Book 2
 
 In Ted Lazaris’s first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Luke was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all the inherent problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a crush on a girl he’s too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly poking their noses into his business, bullies at school and exams to study for. But Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far greater weight than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to terms with his birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant world of Spellville. Not only that but, like hapless Peter Parker forced to juggle his complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his love interest and his not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to harness the enormous powers of Dragonman, his super alter-ego, a persona that regrettably did not come with an instruction manual.

In this second, action comic-like installment, Dragonman: The Poseidon Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy and appears well in control of his superpowers–which he will be called upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil demon who seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.

The mood of impending danger is set from the very first page when author Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped-for brand new bicycle as a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow “washed up” in the small lake on his parent’s isolated farm. While many consider the whale’s appearance a hoax, others believe it to be a sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke’s suspicions that worse is about to happen–which it does.

In a pace that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex thread of differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder mystery to a science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and not-exactly-as-they-seem. An imaginative writer, Lazaris blends magic, mysticism, religion, and the fast-paced action of the comic book world into a book that fans of the first Dragonman tale will find hard to put down.
 
 
 
 
 


Face of the Unknown
DragonMan Book 3
 
This superhero fiction is all about the power of love and faith to overcome the evil that lurks in the darkness, whether we know it or not. The superhero fantasy asks the questions we’ve all asked at one point or another, was life really created the way the bible says? Or could it be that mankind as we know it is the remnant of a past civilization which once lived on another planet – or even deep below the surface of our own? This adventure tackles these questions with a good sense of unbiased investigation, and at the same time, opens our eyes to the powerful issue of ‘What If?’

One hopes and prays they will survive the night, retaining dominion over their own world. While the other will wage war in ways mankind can scarcely imagine, in a gruesome fight to end all life on Earth. The bloody heroic war to determine mankind’s fate, battles between man and beast, journeys to other worlds, the power of the mind over evil forces, and the triumph of love.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Descendants of Man
DragonMan Book 4
 
 Why did the Anunnaki come here? Did they create human hybrids? What is their plan for earth? And for us, the human hybrids? Why did some; the original humans (Bigfoot) resist?

Will we survive what is yet to come? — Those who look for the truth, already know — those that fail to search, are lost — but those with an open mind will soon come to know…The Descendants Of Man.

Much of the story information that was obtained to create this story is believed to be true by many people around the world — Fact or fiction — You decide.

Synonyms: inscrutable, incomprehensible, enigmatic, indecipherable, impenetrable, obscure, esoteric, mysterious, mystifying, deep, profound
“unfathomable mysteries”
2.(of water or a natural feature) impossible to measure the extent of.

But when a bizarre sequence of events draws not only the United States but every world superpower on the globe into the threat of World War III the word takes on a whole new meaning.

Experiment in Terror
DragonMan Book 6 
 
 
Luke Starr: Milwaukee boy. Crown Prince of Spellville, aka DragonMan

Ten years ago, Luke discovered that he was the Chosen One of Spellville, a magical alternate dimension. He used his abilities as DragonMan to fight against the ruthless Unter. With the help of his great-grandfather Alaba and the other wizards of Spellville, Luke banished Unter into the inescapable Eon Vault. All was well.
Until a Supernova lends Unter the power to break free…
Now, the Evil One is back and stronger than ever.
 
Outraged by his previous defeat, Unter will hit Luke where it hurts most. Followers. Friends. Family. Kidnapping one of Luke’s sisters and his girlfriend Jenny Anderson, Unter will take one hostage on Earth, the other on Spellville. While the Dragon is distracted by his loved ones in peril, the Evil One will begin to terraform both worlds for his dying race.
 
Luke must make a choice: the Earth or Spellville, his sister or the woman he loves…
 
A cat-and-mouse game with no rewards, only consequences.
Our young hero must quickly adapt to this experiment in terror or watch his world be destroyed by a god-like being bent on revenge.
 
Time is running out, Chosen One. Tick tock… Tick tock…

 
 
 
 
The Awakening
DragonMan Book 7 
 
In the distant past, long before people populated the Earth, and before animals roamed the planet, something terrifying and cunning made its home in the vegetation covering the planet like a soft green blanket. Lying in wait for millions of years this species continued to evolve. Patiently crossing over and manipulating the genetic code of different species. And now, this perfect omniscient being… born from oblivion, has awakened and is ready to feed… God No Longer Rules Supreme… IT’S COMING.
 
 
 
 


The 13th Sign
DragonMan Book 8

Fear No Evil 
DragonMan Book 9


Dead bodies have been turning up all over the place, and the public is scared as hell. Eight murders in a span of six months, all committed in the same brutal manner, and still, nobody has a clue as to who this malicious killer is and the body count is rising.

Luke Starr, a private detective working out of his Milwaukee office with his two sisters, are busy with less sinister cases at the moment. He doesn’t know it yet but he is the only one who can stop this relentless psychopathic killer.

When his girlfriend, Jenny Anderson, a reporter, gets too close to the truth she finds herself in mortal danger.
She quickly enlists the help of her boyfriend Luke Starr and Homicide Detective John Logan to not only catch this psychopathic genius, who is always one step ahead of everyone else but to keep her alive for the biggest story of her career.

As the clues unfold, Luke discovers not everything is-as-it-seems. And what appears at first to be a serial murder spree might just be the beginning of the end of the human race. Can Luke discover the truth before it’s too late? Time is running out.
 
 




 


As, author of the DragonMan Series I would like to share with you, my lifelong struggle with dyslexia.

I have always struggled with the problem. In school, it was always terribly difficult for me to read what was right in front of me. And reading, writing, and spelling still to this day remain difficult for me. One thing I’ve learned despite having this learning disability, I can accomplish my goals, if I don’t, get overwhelmed by the big picture… I just take things one step at a time.

DragonMan: Face Of The Unknown, authored by Ted Lazaris, who created DragonMan and wrote the series of novels, has accomplished the amazing feat of debuting at NUMBER #1 on AMAZON KINDLE, ahead of David Baldacci and James Patterson novels.

Side Piece by Kelly Kay

 

Kelly Kay has revealed the cover for Side Piece!

 

Releasing November 10, 2020

Sex is the easy part. But they’re going to need to find an opening

in their schedules if they want to fall in love.

Side Piece is an instant connection sweeping romance where Tess and Alex simply don’t have time for romance. Their work schedules dictate their worlds, and they like it that way. But their pull towards each other is undeniable. The sex is magnetic it’s the scheduling that’s the problem. The relationship feels like a torrid affair cheating on their everyday lives. Perhaps there could be more if only their calendars overlapped long enough to fall in love.

Tess
Absolutely married to my job of writing happily ever afters. I love everything about my committed relationship with words. I feed it, and it feeds me, and we’re very happy together. The parameters of our relationship are cut and dry, black and white. And then Alex showed up with his gorgeous crooked smile and shaded everything gray, and now I don’t know if I can ever turn the page back. I never thought I’d be the girl who swoons. He scares me to death.

Alex
I am utterly addicted to this woman. Beautiful, beguiling, Tess is a drug taunting me to have one more hit. My life is a deep dive into projects with no regard for anything and anyone else. Work is all there is. My friends and I built this media company from nothing. Making a difference, being a political pundit, is what I was put on earth to do. Tess is the perfect woman for me, but I just don’t have the luxury of falling for her. Sleeping with her, absolutely. But I don’t have the bandwidth for love.

Meet Kelly


I used to create “dreams” with my best friend growing up. We’d each pick a boy we liked, then we’d write down a meet-cute that always ended with a happily ever after. Now I get to dream every day, although it’s a little steamier these days. And I’ve discovered I can and will write anywhere I can. Keep tuned to Instagram to see all the times I fit in a sentence or two. I’ve published one trilogy, one duet, and a standalone this year and there’s a lot more planned.

I’m a writer, married to a writer, mother of a creative dynamo of a nine-year-old boy, and currently a little sleepy. I’m a klutz and goofball and love lipstick as much as my Chuck Taylors.

Good things in the world: pepperoni pizza, Flair pens*, wine, coffee, laughing with my friends until my stomach hurts, a musician at the top of their game, getting lost somewhere I’ve never been, matinee movies on a weekday, the Chicago Cubs, a fresh new notebook full of possibilities, bourbon on a cold night, Fantasy Football, witty men, walking through the local zoo in the rain and that moment when a character clicks in and begins to write their own adventure. I’m just the pen.

Parker Wilson has the life he’s always wanted: an apartment in Brighton Pier, amazing family and friends, and a job he loves. With the invitation to his childhood best friend’s engagement party, the safe haven he’s created around himself is soon flooded with memories of the past. The roadblock he’s taken years detouring soon becomes a reality he can no longer avoid. After six years, Parker will have to see Sarah’s brother again—the only man he’s ever truly loved.

After running away from the truth and moving to Boston, Jason Maxwell must finally face Parker again—and the guilt he’s felt for leaving Parker all those years ago.

Now, with the undeniable way he feels about Parker, Jason is determined to finally make things right.

Excerpt 

Parker glanced down at Jason’s hand grasping his forearm then lifted brutal, cold eyes back up, pinning Jason where he stood. Abruptly, Jason let go but stepped in between Parker and the door. “Please, can we talk? Just for a minute?” Had he ever felt so terrified and desperate in his entire life?

“You’re about six years too late to talk,” Parker deadpanned.

“I know. I’m so sorry, Parker. I never should have done that.”

“You made that pretty obvious in that letter—if a few pathetic sentences could even count as a letter. So, if that’s all you have to say, don’t worry. I got that extremely loud and painfully clear.” 

Jason sidestepped again to block Parker from leaving, his bigger frame making Parker look up. Jason’s body thrummed being this close to him, catching him off guard. Everything about this day wasn’t what he’d expected.  “No, I mean I never should’ve left you there.” Holy shit, this was spiraling out of control. He’d wanted to apologize but, instead, desperation clawed as he tried to keep Parker right here with him. “I…I got—”

“It doesn’t matter. I’ve moved on. I’m not the same person you left in North Carolina. I had an incredibly long and eye-opening bus ride back to Jersey, and I left all that other shit behind.” He waved his hand in front of Jason with disgust. “So, this whole apology is a waste of time. We’ll smile our smiles for Sarah and then go our separate ways again. Don’t worry about me. Don’t think about me. I stopped thinking about you a long time ago—the second you cut me out of your life without a backward glance.” The harsh glare Parker pinned him with made Jason swallow the lump forming in his throat. 

As Parker pushed past him to go back into the restaurant, Jason’s heart thundered: for the words just said, for the words left unsaid, and most of all because he still knew Parker Wilson better than Parker wanted him to.

And he knew when Parker was lying

I have been an artist from a very young age. From drawing cartoon characters and evolving into portraits, making jewelry, photography, and now writing. I have an amazing support system in my family and friends and couldn’t be more grateful.

I live in central New Jersey, love summers at the Jersey Shore, rock music, wine, sexy men, and laughing a lot with my amazing friends and family. Sunday dinners at my parents’ house are crazy, hysterical and you can count on a movie quote…or ten…being thrown out. Insults between siblings is how we show our love for each other!

When I’m not creating, you can find me reading books from my favorite authors. I’m a hopeless romantic, starving for passionate characters and always craving that happy ending, whether in reading or in writing my own books.

Any Luck at All by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella

Any Luck At All, an all-new fun and flirty romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella is available now!

Georgie Buchanan doesn’t know the first thing about running a brewery—she doesn’t even like beer—so she’s thrown when her grandfather leaves his business to her and her three siblings. Selling Buchanan Brewery would be the prudent approach, and while Georgie is, first and foremost, a businesswoman, keeping it might be her best chance of connecting with her half-brother, Jack. But she quickly learns that what she thought was a fixer-upper is a money pit, the employees are all eccentric to the extreme, and her inheritance comes with a shocking catch. Her one hope for success lies with River Reeves, the handsome brewmaster who learned at her grandfather’s feet…if she can avoid falling for him.

After learning his best friend and boss is selling the brewery they built together to a soulless corporation, River quits on the spot, only for Georgie Buchanan to offer him a job the very same night. Helping her turn Buchanan Brewery around is his dream job, the perfect homage to the man who taught him everything and helped give him roots. There’s one problem: his new boss is his dream woman, and she’s not the type to mix business and pleasure. Balancing a new job, a new puppy, and a growing infatuation with his boss, River knows something has to give.

If Georgie has any luck at all, she’ll be able to turn Buchanan Brewery around without losing her mind or her heart. But as River helps her weather everything from her uncle’s possessed cat to a séance, she realizes she might be wishing for the wrong kind of luck.

Excerpt:

Beau had about a dozen tasting cups from various beer festivals, souvenirs he’d kept in the way people hoard things they like, and River had arranged them in two rows on the dining room table—one tasting cup each for each of the beers he’d picked out. A few fruity ones since Georgie liked wine and cocktails, plus a lager, a gingerbread Christmas beer, and a chocolate cherry porter he’d made for Valentine’s Day. She’d never experienced everything that was possible with beer, so he’d figured he might as well offer a wide selection to show her.
They’d made it through all of the fruity ones, which she’d liked more than the amber, plus the lager, which had made her scrunch her nose in a cute way, and the gingerbread. The chocolate cherry was the last one he’d chosen, and he did a drumroll on the table as she lifted it to her lips.
She held it back from her mouth, laughing a little. “If you’re not careful, you’re going to make me laugh when I’m drinking, and this one’s going to end up on your shirt too.”
“Maybe I want it to,” he said. “It might balance out the smell of the other one.”
She made a face and then sipped it, and from the way she kept drinking, he knew they had another winner.
“What do you taste?” he asked as she pulled it away from her lips, which glistened a little from the liquid.
“Mmm. That one was maybe my favorite, even better than the peachy one. Chocolate and cherries but not too sweet.”
“That’s what I like to hear,” he said, making a plus mark next to it in the little chart she’d made. Leave it to a businesswoman to carry around a notepad and pen in her purse. A monogrammed notepad.
“Only one minus and five pluses,” he said. “Guess you like beer more than you thought.”
She grinned at him, a wider, looser grin than earlier. “I guess maybe I do. Although you’re being a little generous with those plus signs. I said the mango sour was interesting. That was a nice way of saying I’m not going back for seconds.”
He hammed up a dramatic frown as he scribbled out the plus sign and added a minus sign next to it on the chart. “Demoted! Does this mean I have to be suspicious of anything you call interesting?”
“No, just the mango sour.” She paused, meeting and holding his gaze. “You, River Reeves, are quite interesting.”
Her eyes sparkled as she said it, and he felt warmth pulse through him. He found her interesting too, and he was running out of reasons why he shouldn’t. She planned on staying, on restoring Beau’s brewery, and he had no doubt she had the brains and means to do it.
But this woman had been to business school—she’d formed a business from nothing—and he was almost thirty and still a few community college classes short of a degree. He’d fumbled his way into the job that he’d quit a few hours ago. He doubted he was Georgie Buchanan’s type, or at least her type for more than one night. And for some reason, that wasn’t what he wanted from her.
“I like the porter too,” he said, clearing his throat and reaching for his tasting cup. The moment shattered, like he’d meant it to. “We sold out at the brewery, but I brought a six-pack over to Beau’s. This one’s all that’s left.”
“I’m glad you did,” she said, reaching for the bottle the porter had come in. “I think I’m going to claim the rest of this one for myself.”
