New Release!!!

sonataxlgThese are the dark, ethereal stories of Moonlight Sonata. Tales bound to disturb your sleep and chill your heart; a new collection from the award-winning author of Setting Suns and Nocturne Infernum, Elizabeth Donald.

All that can kill you is what you carry with you:
Imagine a haunted church, where the ground has turned sour and something walks in the shadows at night to the mournful hymns.
A silent covered bridge that no one dares to cross.
Angry spirits that cry out from beneath the ground of a cemetery that will not lie still.
An ageless man bound in love to a mortal woman, forever moving, forever haunted.
A police officer chasing a suspect into the woods – and suspects they are no longer alone.
A woman preparing to leave her husband, watched by unseen eyes in the corner of the room.
A voice that can speak only through a radio, a voice from beyond death itself.
A man haunted by an ageless face that brings tragedy to his life whenever it appears.
A girl whose imagination carries her beyond the point of no return in a future where dreams become reality – and so do nightmares.

Vampires for Valentines!

Crimson NightMeghann O’Neill – A psychologist, vampire, and mother of the legendary living Philosopher’s Stone!

http://www.darkoakpress.com/crimsonnight.html

Meghann O’Neill once dreamed of having a child, but that was a long time ago. It was before she had been seduced into a relationship of pleasure and pain, excitement and torture. It was before she had been transformed into a vampire by Lord Simon Baldevar, the cruel sadistic creature that made her cater to his every dark whim and desire. It was before she managed to escape Simon’s clutches leaving him staked out for dead. It was before he returned forty years later to exact his revenge by killing Meghann’s mentor and kidnapping her human lover. It was before Simon held Meghann captive for one fateful night and forced her to conceive his child.

Now, Meghann is on the run not only from Simon, but any vampire that finds out she’s conceived the living Philosopher’s Stone. For centuries, vampires have believed the bred offspring of two vampires will not only enjoy eternal life, but have the ability to walk in daylight.

Meghann, determined to fight to the death, will let no one take her baby from her-especially its treacherous, dangerous father.

You need some werewolves!

Guardian Angel Warfare

OOTS Front Dark OakThe prophecy Davian’s people had forgotten has been fulfilled; Elysia is now slave to a tyrant. His mercenaries, the dreaded Black Guard, kill at will, casting a shadow of terror wherever they tread. Elysia’s enemies, the mornachts, have overrun Earth, and the human child prophesied to rid evil from both worlds may not survive their attacks-or impending world war.

Elysia’s only hope for freedom lies in Davian. Once a decorated officer, Davian now roams Elysia’s outskirts as an escaped fugitive. Armed with only a stolen sword, he and three loyal soldiers vow to somehow return to Elysia through a wilderness full of mornachts, Black Guard, and a nameless evil that slithers in the darkness, watching Davian’s every move. For Davian to succeed, he must gather an army and somehow convince the neutral races of dragons, unicorns, and gnomes to help him along the way. The closer Davian gets to Elysia, the more one thought haunts him: To free his countrymen, he must betray his country.
