Miss Knight and the Night in Lagos

Where African myth meets Victorian manners. The mission is simple: Travel to Lagos, save the Brownies, and don’t die in the process. Unfortunately for paranormal investigator Miss Beatrice Knight, her employer is a werewolf which means nothing is ever simple. Upon arrival, Miss Knight is insulted by the police, chased by a vampire, and visited by a talking chimp. Everything is going according to plan, just not her plan. At least they serve tea in the colonies, but will that be enough to survive the night? Miss Knight and the Night in Lagos is a prequel to the Society for Paranormals series, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unsolicited suitors inconvenience her in colonial Kenya. Welcome to a cozy mystery series concerning Victorian etiquette, African mythology, and the search for a perfect spot of tea.

Sanguine

The newest installment of the Blood of Cain series! “They’re just roses, baby. Roses in the snow.” On her way to Chicago to reckon with Dekker’s past, Frankie Mourning takes a detour into the town of Red Rock, Idaho, where strange things are happening, all seemingly connected to a young woman called Annalise Stoppard. Annalise has a peculiar power over her dreams, a power which has turned her life into a waking nightmare. Without Frankie’s help she will be swallowed up by her own mind, putting the lives of everyone around her in danger. Grappling with Dekker’s resurrection, a shifty psychiatrist up to no good, and their own complicated feelings for one another, Frankie doesn’t have time to play games. With Dekker growing more vulnerable by the moment, Frankie learns the source of the danger is a god trapped in a dream world of Annalise’s making – a god who threatens to darken the very fabric of reality if she can’t save Annalise Stoppard. If that happens, Dekker may well be lost to her for good. And if something happens to Thomas Dekker, one thing is certain: no one is safe from Frankie Mourning. Absolutely no one.

Dawning of Darkness: The Fall of Gods and Kings

Systems fall, planets die—darkness dawns on us all. When a god known simply as the Dark Creator enters our universe, the concord of the world inhabited by the spirits of men and their kings, the gods’ chosen few, fades. As this being and his overwhelming force of corrupted horrors and children eclipse Afterworld and its territories, the kingdoms of men must put aside their differences and band together.

After millennia of fighting, the final blockade separating man from those sinister entities has collapsed. With so much at stake, and with the Dark Creator approaching the Divine Mountains, will our protectors’ sacrifices ensure Afterworld’s survival? Or will this encroaching darkness consume it all?

Forgotten Gods Omnibus (Books 1-8)

 

The gods are real…and they want their world back.

Thousands of years ago, ancient deities fought a civil war that nearly destroyed the earth. They were defeated by a great warrior—and banished to spend eternity beyond the reach of the humans who once served them.

Their war is raging once again. 

And once again, it will require a great hero to save humanity. 

Unfortunately for humanity, I’m that hero. 

My name is Vic Stratton. I’m no saint, but I’m the best chance we’ve got at surviving the chaos about to be unleashed. But hey, at least I have my good looks, a quick tongue, and the sword of the gods on my side.

And I’m going to need it. Because when the gods return, all hell will break loose.

Afterworld

Death comes, and misery follows. As a man in his early twenties, Leon never genuinely contemplated what would happen after his death. Like those before him, he never understood the truth of our universe. After his sudden demise, the terrorizing reality of a mysterious dystopian afterlife begins crushing him as it has those prior. Men have started enslaving and killing each other to sate their greed while enigmatic creatures oppress the masses. Only a select few have shown the courage that is needed to challenge their supremacy.

Through this eclipsing darkness, there is hope. But will that hope prove to be enough to save this turbulent cosmos? The revelations of advanced science, magic, human savagery, and even our gods will be showcased. Both in a new light and disturbing darkness, will the verities of Earth and Afterworld give him a greater understanding of our universe; or in turn, begin to break him as they have done to so many before?

Magi of Gaia – Volume One: I Told a Lie

Three young, inexperienced magicians must defend their world against a wave of increasingly difficult opponents. That’s what Magi of Gaia is essentially about, but if you’re only looking for fierce, hard-hitting action, you’ll overlook the humor, kindness, and drama that bring this world to life. Sure, you might be happy with the amazing uses of magic and the broken noses, but you’ll miss out on seeing the quick temper of the usually-composed Jorri, the softheartedness escaping from Yuna’s severe demeanor, or Eren’s courage overcoming her self-doubt.

This trio, the Magi, are the imperfect heroes—human in spite of their incredible powers—and are tasked with keeping their world from falling into darkness. When a magician enters Gaia’s realm, it’s the Magi’s job to find them, determine whether or not they are hostile, and deal with the situation appropriately. It’s a lot to ask, and things aren’t helped by the appearance of a woman claiming to be a deity whose sole joy seems to be breaking the Magi’s spirit … and their bodies. This woman shows her powers seldomly, but when she does, she breaks the very logic of their world and makes it look effortless.

Come and read more. Find out how our heroines can laugh and joke around, even under the toughest of circumstances. See if you can figure out why Eren, a girl who should be a beloved hero, is treated as though she’s diseased. Discover why 80% of Gaia’s population is … female?!

It seems Gaia is different from Earth is more ways than you might think.


Meet T.E. Holtz

T.E. Holtz is an American writer who first started drafting the original Magi of Gaia (then titled “Welcome to Gaia”) as a playful hobby online in 2014. After a year of writing for fun, Holtz saw that the story could be reworked in a meaningful way with more excitement, better characterization, and a more, fuller view of this new world called Gaia. Finally, after years of tweaking and developing, Holtz ended a nearly 10-year employment at one of the world’s largest retailers in hopes of pursuing a love grander than the universe—a love for the world of Gaia and all the beloved characters than inhabit it.

The Return of the Eternals

cover

Being one of the highest ranking members of an anti-terrorist organization called Luxarx, Kaleth assumes he knows everything there is to know about the organization, and their most prominent foe, the Umbra.

He is proven wrong, however, after a chance encounter with one of their supposed enemies. The Umbra in question isn’t violent or threatening—he’s just scared. And he makes Kaleth start to question everything he has been told by his superiors.

Kaleth decides to investigate this oddity, but to get to the bottom of this, he needs help from someone outside of the organization—he doesn’t trust the agents outside of his team not to betray him. Enter Nef, a brother of one of Kaleth’s coworkers, who knows his way around computer security—something Kaleth sorely needs to be able to break into Luxarx’s most secret database.

But instead of simply finding out what is going on at Luxarx, Kaleth ends up discovering an ancient secret involving his country, his government, and even his own existence.
