Pulse

Expected Publication Date: December 1st, 2021

Genre: Dystopian Sci-Fi/ Horror

Pulse is a multi-POV dystopian sci-fi horror novel set in the near future around a creature and a music festival. Think Fyre Festival, Black Mirror, and X-Files combined. The book is being praised for its genre-bending style utilizing screenplay-like formatting while bouncing all the plotlines with the pace of a thriller. Early reviews have already praised Bellec for his fantastic use of horror and incredible world-building. This will be the first book in a new series with more coming soon.

About the Author

Profile Pic

Author of the Reader Views Young Adult Book of the Year, Someone’s Story, and co-collaborator on the music it inspired, B.A. was born in Richmond, BC and raised in Langley, BC, before settling in Winnipeg, MB. His first adventure was a career in Finance, where he spent 15 years developing his business skills. His highest achievement was the Certified Payroll Manager designation. He currently still consults with businesses on their systems and processes. Over that period of time, he also attended Lights Film School where he started to nurture his early creative abilities.

A self-starter always interested in research, he taught himself many of the aspects of storytelling through reading books, screenplays and material online. Whenever he found an inspirational piece of art, he quickly went to the source to find the story behind the artist who created the work. It took many years after attending film school for him to finally combine his creative skills with his life experience and tell that story he had been holding back. Some of his favorite creative people: Lukas Rossi, Justin Furstenfeld, Peter Jackson, Stephen Chbosky, J.K. Rowling.

During COVID-19, B.A. started a YouTube channel and was awarded a grant from The Canada Council for the Arts. He also pounded away on the keyboard to bring his second novel, Pulse, from his imagination to the page. He can’t wait to release that book along with the new songs that will go with it!

Inexplicable and uncanny changes wrack his mind and body.

To protect humankind from slavery Angus must face the past, but more troubling, his future while unraveling the mystery of his heritage. He strives to discover millennia-old truths from Olympus, Greece, and the violent history that produced them. The truth of who bred him to die saving humanity.

About the Author

819450648161768041

Rob James is a student of history and geopolitics and writing novels with historical themes is his passion. Dramatic events and tales from history help to create thrills and suspense. They also color flawed but compelling protagonists.

Since childhood, stories of Rob Roy MacGregor, and the ancient Greek heroes heightened Rob’s passion for reading. He knows them and the history of their times intimately, lighting the richly layered backstory of his novels.

When referencing ancient characters, tradition can become repetitive so Rob takes care to provide unique takes on the often-repeated tales. As his plots are set in the present day, intertwining the old with the new demands respect for the old, while giving them a modern punch; a lift to provide relevance and resonate with readers.

Relatively Normal Secrets

Publication Date: September 7th, 2021

Genre: Middle Grade/ Fantasy/ Adventure

Tuesday and Zed Furst are perfectly normal children with perfectly strange parents. Their father won’t discuss his job, their mother never leaves the house without her guard dog, and the topic of the family tree is off limits.

When a last minute “business trip” gets the adults out of the way, Zed and Tuesday decide to get to the bottom of things once and for all. Too bad some thugs with shape-shifting weapons have other ideas. Their escape leaves them trapped in the modern-meets-medieval Falinnheim, where everyone insists their father is a disgraced fugitive. They hope whoever is leaving them coded clues may have some answers, but they’re not sure they’re going to like what they learn.
If they ever want to see their parents again, they’ll need the help of a smuggler with a broken compass, their unusually talented dog, some extremely organized bandits, and a selection of suspiciously misquoted nursery rhymes.

Zed and Tuesday may not have all the answers, but one thing is certain—when it comes to normal, everything is relative.

About the Author

CW-Allen-Author-Image-1-927x1024

C.W. Allen is a Nebraskan by birth, a Texan by experience, a Hoosier by marriage, and a Utahn by geography. She knew she wanted to be a writer the moment she read The Westing Game at age twelve, but took a few detours along the way as a veterinary nurse, an appliance repair secretary, and a homeschool parent.

She recently settled in the high desert of rural Utah with her husband, their three children, and a noisy flock of orphaned ideas. Someday she will create literary homes for all of them. (The ideas, not her family.)

Relatively Normal Secrets (Cinnabar Moth Publishing, Fall 2021) is her debut novel. She writes fantasy novels for tweens, picture books for children, and short stories and poems for former children. Her work will appear in numerous anthologies in 2021. She is also a frequent guest presenter at writing conferences and club meetings, which helps her procrastinate knuckling down to any actual writing.

The Eradication of Humanity by Social Media

Expected Publication Date: October 10th, 2021

Genre:  Social Media/ Fiction

Everyone wants to be Internet famous, an influencer, a celebrity. But the means by which most people seek it these days are toxic.

The Internet has afforded society many, many perks. The ability to reach out to someone across the globe in an instant is miraculous in some regards. Having access to a wealth of information, entertainment, sporting events, and the news is a way of life for millions of people. But there is a down side: social media.

Social media sites and apps like TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch provide entertainment. That’s how they’re touted. But behind the scenes, when you take a deep dive into how and why they’re utilized, you’ll find the dumbing down of generations of people who crave the perceived fame and fortune without realizing what it is they’re inviting into their lives. 

The Eradication of Humanity by Social Media examines the toxic culture of social media. It exposes the harsh realities of life for those who portray themselves as something they’re not for likes, reposts, comments, brand partnerships, and the hard-earned money of those who can’t stop scrolling and hope to, one day, be like them.

Discover the hidden side of social media. See how it can destroy lives, invite problems, change the way we feel about ourselves, our lives, those around us, and so much more.

If you’ve ever wondered if social media was dangerous or fake, this book provides those answers with detailed facts, examples, stories, and shows you how they link to many of the problems we see in the world today.

Coming Soon!
