Charles Carter—a.k.a. Carter the Great—is a young master performer whose skill as an illusionist exceeds even that of the great Houdini. But nothing in his career has prepared Carter for the greatest stunt of all, which stars none other than President Warren G. Harding and which could end up costing Carter the reputation he has worked so hard to create. Filled with historical references that evoke the excesses and exuberance of Roaring Twenties, pre-Depression America, Carter Beats the Devil is a complex and illuminating story of one man's journey through a magical—and sometimes dangerous—world, where illusion is everything.

Twas the Knight before Christmas, when all through Max and Matthew’s house Not a creature was stirring?—but not in these boys’ family house; Stress, deadlines, and naughty children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums did NOT dance in their heads, When they met with obstacles, mounted to the sky, Could they overcome the hurdles before time flies? When what to their wondering dreamy brown eyes did appear, But peace, harmony, and calmness, my dears. And all was right in the land of Knights. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

It’s not every day you get a friend request from a dead girl.
I_am_Kronos is a thrilling blend of gaming, sci-fi, and supernatural romance. Keven Meyers, gamer and classic underachiever on the fringe of cool, gets a friend request from Sierra Sands, recently deceased and haunting his video games.
Sierra is stuck in the Nexus, the center where all the universes and realities collide. She desperately needs Keven’s help to stop Silas, another lost soul using his diabolical understanding of the world between the worlds to prey on gamers.
When Silas attacks Keven in his video game, Sierra drags Keven's soul through the game and into the safety of the Nexus where he becomes painfully aware that he is inextricably connected, across universes and realities, to this dead girl. But with the infinite possibilities of multiple realities come options--options like his best friend Lexy Granger. Only the strength of the ties that bind Keven, Sierra, and Lexy, on multiple levels, in and out of existences, are strong enough to overthrow Silas. Rachel DeFriez, author of the chilling zombie romance, Grey Matters, brings us a spine-tingling supernatural thriller that delves into the metaphysical world of the multi-verse.
