GODEATER: The Second World
In a world void of divinity, there is little to believe in. The gods and heroes of mythology have all disappeared, their stories lost to the ages. So few know the truth…
Naika Connors leads a quiet, normal life—at least, as quiet and normal as a welder and shape-shifting girl can. Naika was born with The Call—a primal instinct that causes her body to transform into that of a polar bear when in distress— a condition that has sometimes been the bane of her existence, and one that’s been absent in human culture for centuries.
When a mysterious force robs the Earth of all sunlight, Naika must team up with her best friend, Noah Humphreys, and an unwilling boy from her past, Sirus Vick, to determine the cause. Their little North Dakota town is turned upside down as mythological beings of every sort crawl off the forgotten pages of history and into their lives. One
monster rules above the rest— one that threatens the very existence of the world: the Godeater.
Will they be able to save the lights of the cosmos? Are all of the gods truly gone?
Queen of Diamonds: A Tale of El’Anret
There are some days in life that change the way you are, forever. That One Day Where All Things Are Undone. For Hazel Leigh Mac Tíre, that day was the day she found the mound in her backyard. It began as small as a mole’s hill, growing and growing as the hours ticked by, until a hole that spanned three feet wide sat against an open mouth of dirt.
The stories always warned to stay away from Faerie mounds. Leigh did not always listen.
What waited inside? A sadistic, renegade Queen with a stolen crown. A tortured Prince. An entire Faerie world in need of saving. And, thanks to the Fae fires that marked her, Leigh was their new and rightful Queen. She must separate fact and fairy tale in order to survive the realm of El’Anret. Can she save a world she wasn’t made for?
Jack of Diamonds: A Tale of El’Anret
The world of El’Anret has been quieter since Hazel Leigh Mac Tíre became the Faerie’s new Queen of Diamonds. With her son, Jack, in tow, she leads the land with a calm and careful diplomacy.
That is, until an unseen force shakes the very foundation of the land.
At Midsummer, a new Queen is set to be Marked. A Faeborn girl comes forth, blazing diamonds marking her arms, and what should be a day of celebration turns the entire world of El’Anret against their mortal queen. No sooner than her diamonds appear, the girl is kidnapped, and a single clue is left in her wake: a missive, written in blood.
ALL HAIL QUEEN MAC TIRE. ONE TRUE QUEEN.
Time is not the only enemy Leigh faces as she seeks to rescue the girl and set things right. The entirety of El’Anret hunts her and her family, believing that she intends to keep the throne from the rightful heir. In the midst of chaos, Jack disappears, becoming a fabled creature all his own.
A storm is brewing— one that no one, human or Fae, might survive.
King of Diamonds: A Tale of El’Anret
Darkness has long been cast over El’Anret.
While two diamond-marked Queens toil under the watch of the monstrous Alexandria, an awakening is happening– one that the renegade queen would never suspect.
Jack, Stag King of El’Anret, stirs from his crystal slumber.
As death waits around every corner and honored allies begin to fall, he has but one choice: harness the darkness inside him, before El’Anret falls deeper into madness. Jack must find any ally he can to save not only his mother and the rightful Queen of Diamonds, but the only world he’s ever truly called home.
Will the Stag King balance the scales between dark and light, or will El’Anret be lost forever?
KING OF DIAMONDS is the final novella in the Tales of El’Anret series.
Diamond Marked: The Tale of El’Anret
Inside a mortal girl lies the heart of the Queen of Diamonds, true ruler over El’Anret, the world of Faerie.
Inside a Half-Human, Half-Fae boy lives the soul of a Stag King, mysterious and powerful creature of legend, capable of transforming worlds… or destroying them.
And neither of them belong.
In a world of myths and monsters, it will take them both to usurp a renegade queen— one who stole the crown and made the whole of El’Anret bend to her will.
The Faerie world will never be the same.
DIAMOND MARKED: The Tale of El’Anret combines the stories of the Faerie and Mortal worlds into a single collection. Queen of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds, and King of Diamonds are included in their Author Preferred text editions.
Wayward: Poetry for Monsters, Muses, and Other Deviants
difficult to control or predict because of unusual behavior.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a mermaid and an astronaut. So, I became both- neither at war with the other, despite being at two extremes.
What does this have to do with poetry? Everything.
Within these pages, you’ll find poems that strain both sides of consciousness- words that aren’t afraid to be their truth, especially in the moment they were written in. Sometimes, they’re in harmony. Other times, their only harmony is found in chaos.
That’s what it’s like, being wayward.
In Melody Klink’s debut poetry collection, she shares many facets of her own life, from dealing with Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, to being a mother; from yearning to be her true self, to reveling in nature– sometimes, all at once. Offered as a random stream of consciousness, WAYWARD is a thoughtful, and often heart-wrenching, look at what it is to breathe in our everyday, modern life.
