The Golden Dragon Series: The Beginning of an End
($9.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0079-1, paperback
Cara wakes up to find she's turned into a dragon overnight, while her mother, father, and brother have each turned into a different kind of animal. In their shock, no one can make sense of what is happening. Rushing outside, she and her family realize they're not the only ones who have transformed.
Amid the panic of the neighborhood, several sleek black vans with the initials "IMA" printed on them drive up and a man begins explaining the situation. As Cara listens to him speak, she becomes convinced that his words are a lie--but will she have the courage to singlehandedly challenge the mysterious stranger who claims to have all of the answers?
About the Author

Keepers of the Light: Look to the Light and Find Me
($16.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7826-1, paperback
Lighthouses have captivated people for generations. Their scenic appearance and fascinating history capture the imagination. In Keepers of the Light, S. L. Russell highlights that mystique in a novel of adventure, intrigue, history, and romance.
Florida's Hillsboro Lighthouse stands as the centerpiece of this tale. A young Coast Guardsman, Mark Medina, is fascinated by it, especially after he experiences some supernatural incidents and realizes he may have a family tie to the place. He enlists the help of a local history teacher to help him unlock its mysteries. In the meantime, Mark begins his duties serving in the Coast Guard, and his adventures in this role also connect back to the mysteries of the lighthouse.
Blending the historical lore of lighthouses with an engaging fictional story, Russell creates a compelling read with Keepers of the Light.
About the Author

Russell travels often and gathers ideas for books along the way. An author of several other books including Carrying On, Arriba, Free Mail, and 58 Gardens, her interest in lighthouses and her two sons' service in the Coast Guard inspired her to write Keepers of the Light.
($18.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0105-7, paperback
It's a long way from Sweden to Sri Lanka, but Anna Edelhielm, a Special Narcotics Prosecutor in Sweden, needs to get away after her boyfriend is murdered in Stockholm. What better place to go on a "dream vacation" than Sri Lanka, where her sister, Marie, has settled and married? But something strange and perhaps dangerous is keeping Marie from leaving the island.
Kevin, an American conducting sensitive negotiations in Sri Lanka, starts to figure out what that something could be. And it's not what Anna--or you--might expect.
