Synopsis: The Colonies lost the Revolutionary War. Now it’s 1839 and the North American continent is divided into three territories: New Britannia, Nueva Espana, and Nouvelle France where seventeen-year-old Claire Poissant lives.

Claire has a magical way with words—literally. But a mystical power of persuasion isn’t the only thing that makes her different. Half-French and half-Indian, Claire doesn’t feel at home in either world. Maybe that’s why she’s bonded so tightly with her fellow outcasts and best friends: Phileas, a young man whose towering intellect and sexuality have always made him the target of bullies, and Sam, a descendant of George Washington who shares the disgraced general’s terrible, secret curse.

But when Sam’s family is murdered, these bonds are tested and Claire’s special ability is strained to its limits as the three hunt the men responsible into dangerous lands. Along the way they cross paths with P.T. Barnum, William Frankenstein and other characters from both history and fantasy as they learn the hard way that man is often the most horrific monster and that growing up sometimes means learning to let go of the things you hold most dear.

About AshleyRose Sullivan: Born and raised in Appalachia, AshleyRose Sullivan now lives, writes, and paints in Los Angeles. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University and her first novel, Awesome Jones: A Superhero Fairy Tale is available from Seventh Star Press.

Elizabeth Donald Joins the Seventh Star Press Family With Compendium of Nocturnal Urges Novels!

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce Elizabeth Donald as the latest addition to our author family with a new compendium containing her highly-acclaimed Nocturnal Urges novels! Featuring brand new cover art by A. Christopher Drown, the release is set for late March and will bring Elizabeth’s popular series back into eBook and print editions for fans worldwide!

“We are thrilled to have Elizabeth join the Seventh Star Press family as we move into a new and exciting phase at the press,” commented Seventh Star Press representative Stephen Zimmer.  “She is one of the most well-loved authors on the convention circuit, by both readers and peers alike.  Her exceptional talents as a writer are well-established.  We couldn’t be more excited to have this great series and world-class author find a home with us.”

The forthcoming release will contain the novels Nocturnal Urges, A More Perfect Union, and Abaddon, the original three installments in the Nocturnal Urges series. The series features an alternate version of present-day Memphis in which vampires walk among us, but are not treated as our equals. They work the night shift, the jobs no one else wants, and they’re not too happy about it. Meanwhile, humans take advantage of the pleasures vampires can provide, but call them friends? Lovers? The gap between human and vampire stretches wide as death rises in the streets of Memphis.

Synopsis of the three novels included in this compendium:

Nocturnal Urges: It’s the most popular club in the Memphis nightlife. Part legal bordello, part feeding ground for the city’s vampires, Nocturnal Urges offers pleasure and pain in one sweet kiss. It’s the ultimate addiction: both drug and sex at once. For the vampires, it’s the only way to survive in a world where the creatures of the night are a dark underclass, ignored until the humans need another fix.

Into this world comes Isabel Nelson, a young woman seeking only a night’s pleasure. But after Isabel’s lover takes her to try the bite, she cannot stop thinking about Ryan, the dark vampire with whom she shared her lifeblood – and who is now suspected of murder. Isabel falls into a world where passion and love are miles apart, where life and unlike have little meaning… and someone is hunting in the shadows.

A More Perfect Union: Samantha Crews has lived a long time in the shadows of Memphis, working at Nocturnal Urges and hiding from the vampires that darken her past.

Det. Anne Freitas is stuck with a new partner, a young woman with a chip on her shoulder. Now they’re assigned to investigate a series of threats against congressional candidate Robert Carton, for whom Samantha volunteers.

But Samantha is falling for Danny Carton, the candidate’s son – an idealist who wants to make life better for humans and vampires alike. But there’s a lot Danny doesn’t know about Samantha.

He doesn’t know she’s a vampire.
He doesn’t know she works at Nocturnal Urges.
He doesn’t know his own father is one of her clients.
And he doesn’t know what’s stalking her…

Abaddon: Abbadon. The Lady Zorathenne requests the honor of your presence at a celebration. A toast, if you will. Followed by a feast.

Beneath the dark Memphis streets, something is stirring. Filled with ancient fury. Seeking revenge on the ones who live above. A revenge born in fire.

The fires are ranging in Memphis and no one is safe. Ryan and Samantha must descend into darkness beyond their imagining to find answers to the mysteries of the past, as Detectives Freitas and Parker seek the truth about the present.

And the return of an old foe could make the future a dark place indeed… save for the flames of Abaddon.

Here’s what some reviewers have had to say about the Nocturnal Urges series…

“Gripping and raw with intense emotion and great characters… This vampire world and its characters are created so realistically you almost expect to hear about them on the evening news, and not be able to sleep afterwards.” — Coffee Time Romance

“ An old-fashioned whodunit with the violence we’ve come to expect in any vampire novel; a love affair against the odds; and a vampire with a tortured past… definitely a keeper!” — Vampire Book Club

“One can never fully prepare for the onslaught of a Donald novel. I should have known that… The tension increases throughout, making it impossible to set aside this book until reaching the last page.” — Author Kit Tunstall

“Not a romance by any means… a story of loss and revenge. A story of love and a hate that has lasted for a hundred years and that will not be denied. It is a story of fire. The fire of the human and the vampire hearts… A storytelling ability to rival that of Stephen King.” — Enchanting Reviews

“The unexpected way this story evolves is magnificent. If you, like me, are enamored with vampires, then this is the book for you.” — Coffee Time Romance

“Elizabeth Donald once again takes readers on a remarkable ride through the shadowy world of vampires, while exploring some of the darker sides of humanity… This is a beautifully-written book with an enormous amount of depth and detail that really bring Ms. Donald’s vampires to life.” — JERR magazine

“Funny, scary, passionate and quirky… worth the price of admission!” — Ecataromance.com

“Enthralling and dark with danger, suspense and sex, Nocturnal Urges is a must-read for vampire fans.” — Romance Reviews Today



Stephen Zimmer’s First Rayden Valkyrie Novel, Heart of a Lion, Unveiled!

Seventh Star Press is proud to unveil the brand new cover art by the award-winning Bonnie Wasson for Stephen Zimmer’s first Rayden Valkyrie novel, Heart of a Lion. The new dark fantasy novel also marks a milestone for Stephen as it is his tenth book published.

The first novel of a three book story arc in a dark fantasy setting, Heart of a Lion features a hero for all times and ages: Rayden Valkyrie.

Rayden Valkyrie.  She walks alone, serving no king, emperor, or master.  Forged in the fires of tragedy, she has no place she truly calls home.

A deadly warrior wielding both blade and axe, Rayden is the bane of the wicked and corrupt.  To many others, she is the most loyal and dedicated of friends, an ally who is unyielding in the most dangerous of circumstances.

The people of the far southern lands she has just aided claim that she has the heart of a lion.  For Rayden, a long journey to the lands of the far northern tribes who adopted her as a child beckons, with an ocean lying in between.

Her path will lead her once more into the center of a maelstrom, one involving a rising empire that is said to be making use of the darkest kinds of sorcery to grow its power.  Making new friends and discoveries amid tremendous peril, Rayden makes her way to the north.

Monstrous beasts, supernatural powers, and the bloody specter of war have been a part of her world for a long time and this journey will be no different. Rayden chooses the battles that she will fight, whether she takes up the cause of one individual or an entire people.

Both friends and enemies alike will swiftly learn that the people of the far southern lands spoke truly. Rayden Valkyrie has the heart of a lion.

Heart of a Lion will be available in all eBook formats the first week of January, 2015, and will be released in softcover form in mid-January. The editor for Heart of a Lion was Scott M. Sandridge.

Hunt for the Fallen by Peter Welmerink, Transport Book Two
Shadow Out of the Sky, Book One of the Transitional Delusions Series
Book Synopsis

Peter Welmerink’s Hunt for the Fallen: Captain Jacob Billet
Journal Entry – Sunday April 5, 2026

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the undead are roaring…

Amassed at the UCRA east end enclosure, the dead strain the fence line while soldiers keep watchful eyes, the survivors on the opposite side of the rising river about to lose their minds.

It’s a crazy time: nonstop precipitation; everyone’s up in arms; paranoid city council members with an asshat City Treasurer. Water, water everywhere. Zees dropping into the churning drink. Troops afraid of being stitched up and thrown back into the fray as Zombie Troopers. Tank commanders getting itchy to head out on their own after drug-laden shamblers. Reganshire insurgents trying to extract our west side civvies for some unknown reason, possibly pushing the city into taking heavy-handed action against them.

Then there’s some black-haired dead dude staring at me through the fence, grinning like he’s off his meds.

And I thought Lettner was a headache.

All this sh*t might give me a heart attack.

Hunt for the Fallen is Transport Book Two

Brick Marlin’s Shadow Out of the Sky: A scarecrow crucified on a wooden cross made from a pair of two-by-fours sits in a field of corn, placed there to frighten away birds and protect the crops. Under its straw hat large buttons pose as its eyes, placed there by child’s fingers, view something sinister in the grave sky, appearing in front of the full moon.

Twisting, it forms into a sleek black mass, peering down upon the town of Woodbury. Four demons called The Reckoning has pulled this shadow, this urban legend from the past, out of an unmarked grave to bring terror across the planet, shoving it toward an apocalypse.

Now it cuts through the air, as if it were opening wounds in flesh, peering down at the first house that it hovers over…

Shadow Out of the Sky is Book One of the Transitional Delusions Series

A man agrees to a meeting with his estranged wife and learns the horrible, obscene truth of the old saying: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…”

And a man struggling with depression and grief receives text messages from beyond the grave, messages that push him to the edge of sanity…and beyond…

Ten more reasons to say your prayers.

Ten more reasons to check beneath your bed.

Ten more reasons why you may never want to close your eyes again.

Siobhan Kinkade
Pronounced Shi-von, Siobhan Kinkade originally started out as a Dungeons & Dragons character. True story! She was an obnoxious little blonde-haired, violet-eyed half-elf rogue who had a bad habit of screaming at random and stealing things from her fellow travelers. She made the transition from fantasy RPG character to fantasy literary character in 2011. S.H. Roddey wrote a story out of her usual genre, and she decided she needed a pen name rather than confuse her audience. The romance is strong with this one. Some is sweet and some is spicy. It’s about half and half on the paranormal/contemporary fields, and all of it is quite good!
.
Fans of romance and speculative fiction everywhere should look to the stars, as Seventh Starlight will be shining down upon the book world very soon!

Cover Reveal for Peter Welmerink’s New Zombie-filled Thriller Transport!

Seventh Star Press is proud to reveal the new cover art by Jason C. Conley for Peter Welmerink’s Transport, the first book of an exciting new post-apocalyptic trilogy by the same same!

Transport brings together the elements of a military thriller and zombie-laced horror in a character-driven adventure and will be released in print and all eBook formats in May. The book will also feature a pair of brand new interior illustrations from internationally renowned artist Tim Holtrop.

Transport tells the story of the HURON, a 72-ton heavy transport vehicle and an army of four; tracked, racked and ready to roll, to serve and protect the walled metropolis of Grand Rapids—both her living and her undead. Captain Jacob Billet and his crew patrol the byways, ready for trouble.

William Lettner, the North Shore Coalition High Commissioner, has enemies from the mainland to the lakeshore and needs to be covertly transported home after his helicopter is shot down en route to Grand Rapids. He has no love for a city that give unliving civilians the right to survive. Lettner’s venomous outbursts assaults Billet and his crew along every mile travelled as they are assigned to safely bring him through the treacherous landscape outside the city back to his hometown.

The HURON and her crew will have to face domesticated zombies and the feral undead; marauders holding strategic chokepoints hostage; barricaded villages fighting for survival, and a group of geneticists who’ve lost control of one of their monstrous experiments if they want to complete their mission.

The crew will need to stay strong and trust one another in order to finish the mission and bring their “precious” cargo home, even knowing, all the while, the terrible deeds Lettner has done.

Travelling through West Michigan was never so dangerous.

Peter Welmerink has been published in various online and wood pulp publications, mainly in the realms of Dark Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery. Peter’s biggest novel endeavor to date was a collaborative effort with Steven L. Shrewsbury, entitled Bedlam Unleashed. His most recent published short story prior to Transport was published in Fading Light: An Anthology of the Monstrous. His is married with a small barbarian horde consisting of three rambunctious boys.

Anderson O’Donnell Comes Aboard Seventh Star Press With Kingdom and Other Tiber City Novels

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce that Anderson O’Donnell is coming aboard with his highly-acclaimed dystopian/noir novel Kingdom and future books featuring Tiber City!

Kingdom will be released as a second edition by Seventh Star Press during the summer of 2014, with future Tiber City novels to follow!  It will be issued in trade paperback in all eBook formats.

Original cover of 1st
edition of Kingdom

Kingdom became an indie book sensation in 2012, when Kirkus Reviews made it one of their top 25 Indie Books of 2012, saying this about the novel: “A taut, brilliantly conceived thriller with impeccable pacing bursting with ideas…For fans of noir-laden science fiction in the vein of Philip K. Dick that is in equal measures suspenseful, gripping, darkly funny and philosophically challenging.”

Kingdom takes the reader into a secret laboratory hidden under the desert, where a covert bioengineering project—codename “Exodus”—has discovered the gene responsible for the human soul.

Somewhere in the neon sprawl outside the nation’s collapsing economic core, a group of renegade monks are on the verge of uncovering a secret that has eluded mankind for centuries.

In a glittering tower high above the urban decay, an ascendant U.S. Senator is found dead—an apparent, yet inexplicable, suicide.

And in the streets below, a young man races through an ultra modern metropolis on the verge of a violent revolution….closing in on the terrible truth behind Exodus—and one man’s dark vision for the future of mankind.

Welcome to Tiber City.

Obsessed with Dystopian/noir fiction, the Clash, and his two sons, Anderson O’Donnell holds an undergraduate degree in English from the College of the Holy Cross. He has studied creative writing extensively with biopunk genre master Jack O’Connell and poet Robert Cording, whose work influenced Kingdom’s high/low culture dynamic. Anderson lives in Washington, DC, with his family.
