Finding a job sucks. Finding a job after college when you have no experience and no connections really sucks. With the holidays looming and student loans coming to call, Kate McGovern needs to find a good paying job and fast, preferably away from the masses of caffeine junkies at the coffee shop she works at. Also, preferably before her landlord evicts her.
Then her favorite customer recommends her for an executive assistant gig with one of the richest men in Boston. Kate thinks her luck has finally come through. The catch? Her new boss, Mr. Waites, expects her to read his mind. Literally. And she's pretty sure deep down, he's evil.
Still, the pay is fantastic, the benefits unbelievable, and after slinging coffee three years, working for Mr. Waites can't possibly be worse than dealing with sleep deprived, under-caffeinated grad students before finals? That's what she thinks until someone tries to kill Mr. Waites. What's worse, Kate finds out if they succeed it might cause the end of the world. Now Kate needs to figure out who's trying to kill her boss, resist the urge to let them, and master telepathy all while making the perfect skinny latte with extra foam. No big deal, first jobs are always tough, right?
All demons have magic.
And that's just the beginning of his troubles.
No job, no hope, and not a lick of magic, Ezekial Sunstone has little going for him. The problem is, not a single demon in Hell's Fifth Circle will allow him to forget it. Not even the fairies.
Infamous for the wrong reasons, Lucifer's Council changes his fortunes when they select him for a special mission. The problem? They're sending him to Seattle to find a runaway who also happens to be one of the oldest and most powerful magic users in history. Aries has run away from the Underworld. No one knows why or where he is hiding. That is for Ezekial to discover.
Accompanied by his best friend and his worst enemy, Ezekial must learn to navigate the Overworld long enough to complete his mission. But the Overworld is a strange place. He will find no harpies or chimera, and magic is a definite no-go. Unless you're the bad guy. Beelzebub has assured Ezekial he is immune to Aries's attacks, but the last thing he feels like doing is placing his trust in the Prince of Demons.
Can he believe what Beelzebub tells him? How can he defeat one of the Underworld's most powerful magic users? What surprises will Aries have in store?
This could be his shot at redemption, or it might be the most humiliating event in a life full of them.
A young demon without magic versus one of the oldest of their kind with immeasurable power.
Hell hath no fury like like a demon without a chance.
No magic, no problem, right?

DTF. Support your local girl gang!
Me and my dirty, tough female besties were hell -- and tacos on wheels.
Who knew that my homemade Shizzle Sauce would be the key ingredient to my happily ever after?
Destiny had a wicked sense of humor -- that was for sure.
After surviving a toxic relationship, I vowed to never let myself be controlled by a man again.
With the help of my girl gang, I was rebuilding my life -- one taco at a time. My trusty snack wagon -- The Pink Taco Truck -- hadn't steered me wrong yet.
This time, it led me straight to a hottie restaurant owner with a sexy Australian accent, who just so happened to love my secret sauce.
He made me an offer I couldn't refuse. But that wasn't the only thing I was unable to turn down.
Jay was everything I could ever want in a man, but he wasn't without heartache of his own. In fact, he'd been around the world, and he had the baggage to prove it.
Good thing I was always up for an adventure!

I'm Evan and I hate my jobs.
I work at a call center, so you can imagine what I have to go through in the course of the day -- the crying, yelling and cursing. That's before I get to work, after that it's all downhill from there. At least the people I work with are good company. That makes my second job much worse.
My other job is worse. I get hired out to sabotage companies like the one I'm at now with my new friends by bad luck. I walk in, lay the whammy down on something and leave. The pay's good, but all the money in the world doesn't help me sleep well at all. My less than sympathetic co-workers and boss don't help matters.
How do I keep my sanity and a roof over my head?
A fey king. An evil horde. A new darkness. And a man with exploding hands.
"Fans of George Takei and Terry Pratchett will love this book and join me waiting impatiently for the next one. Go ahead, read it!"
"Couldn't turn a page without a chuckle, a chortle or a good old fashioned guffaw!"
"Funny, reminiscent of Robert Asprin, Douglas Adams, the best of Robert Heinlein"
"This is an adventure story with bits of madness, magic, a budding bit of romance, and an air force wing of fighting chickens."
Where two worlds meet, the jealous eyes of a Faerie King peer from the darkness as he gathers a slave army of subjugation
Set against him and his dark horde is:
Bill Strike, a naive, girl-shy youth with exploding hands,
the girl he's shy of,
and a pioneer of chicken-powered aviation.
Oh, and a sadistic young noble with a grudge against the universe.
Myths & Magic is volume 1 of a humorous fantasy trilogy that features compelling characters, fantastical storylines, plot twists and a magical multiverse. And the occasional laugh.
If you enjoy the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams or anything by Neil Gaiman, then you'll love this new fantasy series.

From New York Times bestselling author Angie Fox
Ghost hunter Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R (rest and romance) with her boyfriend, Ellis, and a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains seems like just the ticket. The Sugarland Express carries history and nostalgia in every compartment, and Verity is determined to enjoy it -- without ghostly interference. But the ghosts have other plans...
On a dark, desolate night nearly a century ago, the train was stranded in the mountains, and a young woman was found stabbed to death in her locked compartment. The murder was never solved, and a ghostly Belgian detective is still pursuing the case from the grave.
To Verity's dismay, all of the ghostly suspects are back. And when history repeats itself and a new murder mirrors the old, it's up to Verity and her friends to discover which of the passengers -- dead or alive -- could be behind the murders before the killer strikes again.
