Meet Kim Elliott

Lady Noble and the Masques

This is the original novel-length followup to the short story “The Masques of Noble Mansion.” In Regency England, the beautiful young widow Lady Lucinda Noble wishes to find an answer to the suffering of neglected wives and unattached respectable women.

They are special guests at the hidden parties she holds for her women friends, who find at last the attention they long for. Lucinda finds herself falling deeply in love with one of the seven, the magnificent Sable, who is especially marked for revenge by the townsmen… and then, one night, when they learn of yet another party, the enraged townsmen return to Noble Mansion. Please Note: This is a steamy, romantic story and contains detailed depictions of sexual activity between consenting adults over the age of 21. There is no mistreatment between the partners. No part of this work was generated using artificial intelligence (AI) software of any kind.

Meet Juliet Robbe

Juliet Robbe loves writing sensual, romantic stories, so venturing into the world of erotica was a natural for her. “The Masques of Noble Mansion” is a short story that serves as an introduction to the original full-length novel LADY NOBLE AND THE MASQUES: A HISTORY OF NOBLE MANSION, now available as an e-book and in paperback.

Meet Laura Pruett

Laura Pruett began her writing career at the ripe age of approximately three years old by signing her name in her books. She soon advanced to writing random words on doors and, eventually, kindergarten stories about a Santa Claus she had never been taught existed (this time, on normal notebook paper). By the time she finally entered college classes, she would answer the introductory “If you could do any career that you wanted, what would it be?” question with, “I would like to edit dictionaries.” That said, although she minored in English, she majored in psychology, a degree which she obtained in 2003. Years later, in 2011, she began working as a freelance writer and editor on a site once called Elance (now Upwork). Because she preferred editing to writing, she soon eliminated the writing portion from her offered services and focused on editing–including GoFundMe pages, personal memoirs, fiction stories, self-help books, scientific reports, financial reports, and so much more. After years of editing others’ works and encouraging her husband, Michael C. Sahd, to publish his, Laura decided to finally contribute some of her own to the reading world. As of 2023, she has published two children’s picture books, The Dwarves Of Dimmerdown and My First Book Of Strangers: The People I Don’t Know. Currently, in addition to writing A World Apart, Gedra Gets a Man, and To Catch A Fish, she is working on another super-secret Kindle Vella novel, under a pen name. If you’re interested, here’s a one-word hint: Dwarves. Look around and see what you can find!

Meet Cajah Reed

Author of the Divine Land Of Illur, Cajah Reed, fell into writing after the opening line of her first book would not stop cycling through her mind. Continuing to follow the stories in the YA dystopian series felt like an adventure of its own and a way of stepping out of the unpredictability of real life. Her inspiration for the series stems from music, geography, and the humanity of everyone, especially an individual’s need to belong. As an avid reader of all things science fiction and fantasy, Cajah is especially drawn to books with dark oppressive dystopian societies, supernatural characters, or epic worlds unlike our own. It was no surprise that Cajah’s debut series came from one of her favorite genres.

Meet Meagan Diehl

Installing Karma

An action-comedy VRMMO LitRPG with a setting inspired by Wuxia and Xianxia stories and a hero that might have a few screws loose.

Meet William Dickey

Growing up, William was the weird quiet kid in the corner who spent more time interacting with imaginary characters than actual people. Not much has changed. When he’s not inside a book, William enjoys videogames and the occasional jigsaw puzzle. As you can probably tell, he hates writing about himself, he’s far too boring of a character, so he apologizes to anyone reading this garbage paragraph.

Meet Millie Copper

Millie Copper, writer of Cozy Apocalyptic Fiction and preparedness mentor, was born in Nebraska but never lived there. Her parents fully embraced wanderlust and moved regularly, giving her an advantage of being from nowhere and everywhere.

Millie Copper lives in the wilds of Wyoming with her husband and young son, tending chickens and attempting a food forest on their small homestead. After living off the grid for several years, they’ve recently gone back on the grid. Four adult daughters, three sons-in-law, and five grandchildren round out the family.

Since 2009, Millie has authored articles on traditional foods, alternative health, homesteading, and preparedness-many times all within the same piece. Millie has penned seven nonfiction, traditional food focused books, sharing how, with a little creativity, anyone can transition to a real foods diet without overwhelming their food budget.

The twelve-installment Havoc in Wyoming and six-installment Montana Mayhem Christian Post-Apocalyptic fiction series use her homesteading, off-the-grid, and preparedness lifestyle as a guide. The adventures continue with the upcoming Dakota Destruction series.
