July Release From Wild Child Publishing

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the July releases for Wild Child Publishing and Freya's Bower!


Pete Barnes a successful art thief with a knack for forging masterpieces gives up the life of crime to paint his own masterpieces.  Settling in Switzerland, Pete falls in love with the beautiful Carly Sims, who eerily reminds him of his first love Jenny who died unexpectedly of meningitis.  

Pete is thrust back into the world of crime when Carly is kidnapped.  To get Carly back, Pete must steal the Remsky Portrait, a hi-tech work of art, from the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.  The planned exchange of Carly for the portrait goes awry when the Russian Mafia interferes, and Pete and Carly find themselves on the run from the kidnappers and the Russians.


The stakes elevate considerably when an unknown entity marks Pete and Carly for assassination.  Surviving several close encounters while chased across two continents, Pete discovers that Carly is not who he thought she was, that love is not easy and that the Remsky Portrait is anything but a work of art. 


Dinosaurs, a wall of skulls, and mummies, oh my!


One fateful night, Mia and her best friend Jody stow away in the Bradford Museum to investigate the mysterious mummy exhibit from the Cairo Museum. Rumors of the Curse of King Ramesses II have surfaced. It’s believed that due to the king’s tyranny the Egyptian people vowed to rise up against him. In revenge, Ramesses II vowed he would never rest until all of the perpetrators against him and their ancestors were brought to justice.
Now, spend the night in the dark, deserted museum. Experience the roar of the dinosaurs, the cold blast of the arctic, and always run past the wall of skulls. Be prepared for a night of heart-racing action as the girls dare to solve the ancient Egyptian curse of King Ramesses II.


Will Mia and Jody survive the investigation or will the mummified king’s revenge be fulfilled?


LUCKY'S CHARM by Jenn Nixon


To protect her family and find a killer, Felicia “Lucky” Fascino assumed her adoptive father’s identity and joined the network, of moral assassins, to finish the job he began. Eliminating the man responsible for murdering her mother has consumed her for the last five years. Completing the job is the only way Lucky and her family can return to a safe and normal life. Lucky’s uncle, Stephen Chambers, hasn’t come close to tracking the killer. He announces he’s stepping down as her handler to concentrate on the investigation and names Elizabeth, his daughter, as successor.


Keeping secrets is a family trait, and Elizabeth’s addition to the business tests Lucky’s ability to maintain the pretense that the job doesn’t affect her despite the fact that all network hits are hardened criminals. While keeping her family at arm’s length, Lucky begins to feel the weight of her career choice and reclusive lifestyle. Then a chance encounter with an enigmatic hit man during one of her jobs turns into a provocative and dangerous affair. Distracted by the secret trysts with Kenji Zinn and mounting tension within her family, Lucky starts to make mistakes that threaten her livelihood and almost claim her life. When her family is targeted, Lucky must make several rash decisions she believes can save them and preserve her own sanity.

Book Four In Michelle Levigne's Popular YA Sci Fi Series Now Available

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of book four in Michelle Levigne's YA Sci Fi adventure series, The Hunt!

FINDERS, KEEPERS by Michelle Levigne

The Hunt Book 4  - The Hunt: Refugees from a despot who has overrun their world, a group of children are sent to Earth through a rip in time and space ... and are separated by time. They must first find each other before they can go home and save their world.

Iris Davenport hated the memories that came with world-shaking thunderstorms -- because she didn't want to remember she was a member of the Hunt. She was perfectly happy with her adopted parents, helping run the lodge on Smokeytop Mountain, exploring the mountainside, and doing search-and-rescue. The last thing she wanted was to face one of the Hunt and be reminded of the vows her parents had made when they gave her to the guardianship of the Hounds of Hamin.

But when a plane taking a sick boy to a a life-saving operation crash-landed on Smokeytop in a thunderstorm, Iris had to help. Even when one of the searchers turned out to be a member of the Hunt, who reminded her of everything she hoped to forget. She had her own life now -- a home, friends, parents, and a boyfriend. None of which she was willing to give up for a world she barely remembered.

Until the past caught up with them in the form of a traitor to the Hunt, and pieces of an old puzzle that could get her and her boyfriend killed if they didn't find all the clues in time.


A story addict since an early exposure to Dr. Seuss, award-winning author of over 30 novels and novellas, Michelle Levigne has been creating her own stories, heroes and adventures since junior high. She ventures into many sub-genres of science fiction, paranormal, romance and fantasy, including Greek mythology, Narnia spin-offs and her futuristic universe, the Commonwealth.

Michelle writes something for everyone! After all, since she likes to read all over the board, why not WRITE all over the board?
