Destruction…. A show of force… And a warning…

Three isolated towns across the world have been destroyed in a show of force by alien invaders. It is a clear warning of what will occur if their demands are not fulfilled. The fulfillment: Human children between the ages of twelve through fifteen years.

Kara Harper is an unremarkable fourteen-year-old girl who is selected by the aliens. She will be physically and socially orientated during the six months it will take to arrive at the planet Zaratan. The girl who liked the safety of being invisible, cannot help but stand out.

Matt Sparks, the boy next door, is also selected. Kara has had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. He vows to safeguard her. The closer they get to their destination, the more difficult it becomes to live up to his promise.

Kara is unsure if she has the strength to withstand the trials and physical changes she is forced to go through. In a new life, Kara will be torn. Will she be drawn in by an alien boy who has shown interest in her or by the powerful patriarch who sees her as the future of his race?

selected-author-evelyn-ledermanAbout the Author:
Evelyn Lederman cannot remember if her first crush was on Paul McCartney or James T. Kirk. Either way, Science Fiction has always been a part of her life. When it came to write her first Young Adult novel, she chose the genre closest to her heart.

She lives in Florida with her cats, her tennis racquets, and her beach bag all packed and ready to go. Like her main character in ‘Selected’, she loves the beach. Most of her literary inspiration occurs while walking along a sandy shore.

Her two adult series, Worlds Apart and Nightshade Saga are about parallel dimensions and soul mates.

He tells them they are not normal children, but are part of a group of six entities called Mytar who are periodically seeded throughout the dimensions to fight planetary invasions across these portals. Cathora has been invaded by an alien army, led by a creature known only as Zelnoff whose next target is Earth. The Mytar alone have the power to stop him if the other Mytar on Earth can be found. There ensues many struggles and battles as Chris, Susie and Joe seek to evade Zelnoff’s forces long enough for their powers to develop so they can detect the remaining Mytar back on Earth.

Pages: 235
Genre: YA Sci-fi, Fantasy

“…you must realise and accept, neither me, your mum, nor either of you are human.”

Nick and Mel are 14 year old twins living normal lives with their parents. When they discover an ancient book in the attic and read from it, strange events begin to happen around them. Something has been awakened which prompts their parents to take them away to a town called Midway where they reveal to the twins that they are not human. They had been hidden on Earth, brought up as though they were human, awaiting the right moment for the truth to be told.

When their parents mysteriously disappear on their first night away, they are forced to discover for themselves what their roles are in the new lives they’ve been thrown into. They struggle alone as they try to understand and balance their past human lives with their alien destiny. When the book they discovered at their home is stolen, it falls on the twins to recover it. The book has a lot more power than they realised, and if they fail, it will not be they who suffer, but the whole human race.

Along the way, they meet an array of characters, some will become friends, some will become enemies, who can they trust? For now, they can trust only each other.

About the Author:
Kevin Fleming has lived in Liverpool, England, all his life, born into a family with roots in Ireland, Yorkshire and London. All his family apart from he and his wife have long since left Liverpool to spread across the globe, even as far as New Zealand. He feels as though his ancestors all congregated in Liverpool, dropped him off then quietly left.

Even as a child he wanted to write a book but never had the patience to continue beyond the first page. Despite many more failed attempts through his teens, the thought of completing a novel stayed with him as an adult working in telecommunications and afterwards running his own business. In 2012 he decided he’d been employed enough for one lifetime and concentrated on writing.

After all the years of trying, ‘The Storyteller’s Book’ finally arrived, quickly followed by ‘The Mines of Kothkish’, ‘The Warlords of Shreen’ and finally ‘Carnival of the Otherworld’, to form the series, The Chronicles of Midway.

Married for over thirty years, he has a daughter and son who have now left home and are building lives for themselves elsewhere in England.

What if everyone just stopped caring? What sort of world would we create for future generations?

Letha and Nathan were best friends just as were their mothers before them. Soon, however, two dictators overthrow the city, take the children captive, kill the opposing parents and then brainwash, train, and sculpt these children into soldiers. At first, Letha rejects the new life she leads, staying strong only to protect those younger than her. She is then given the ultimate task: kill Nathan; if she does not, everyone, including herself, will die.

In a world where no one cares, Letha struggles against herself to do the right thing. Ultimately, she has to make a choice, save herself or drown in the codependency of one young boy who has become brainwashed and hardened into the dictator’s web. No matter what choice she makes, she will have to lose someone that she loves.

Dr. Albert Roth is thrown into a world of psychological terror when he’s directed to council the youth who have survived life behind the walls.He thinks their stories of war are traumatic, that is, until, some of the youth decides to keep him as their own.

About the Author:
Lotus is merely the pen name for a dreamer–a writer who can’t keep her head out of the clouds.

Since childhood, Lotus has spent most of her waking hours devoted to scribbling stories.

She isn’t like you and I. Even her air is different for she “breathes novels”. The world she belongs to is nothing like this one. It is a place where only the eccentric venture. And, of course a few brave readers…

“There is no law but that with which we put upon ourselves,” Lotus sighs, “and the laws to which we allow others to set for us.”

“Don’t be afraid of who or what you are. Embrace it. For the stranger you are, the better the story.”
