The Legionnaire
By Samantha Traunfeld

Discover the epic military fantasy where magic determines your place in life. “This grim, passionate tale will scorch readers.” – Kirkus recommended review

Saiden, a Blood-Cursed legionnaire—blessed by both the God of Life and Goddess of Death—is a paradox. Called both “death-bringer” and “world-ender,” she is surprisingly careful about taking lives and proving herself to be a monster. Torn between her loyalty to her queen and the need to protect her people, Saiden struggles to decide who she is going to be in a world that has already cast her aside.

Queen Loralei is hiding the fact that she’s been blessed by the God of Life while navigating the manipulative and dangerous landscape of ruling a kingdom. When she discovers a mysterious prisoner in her dungeons, she begins to unravel a complicated plot that shadows her reign and would change the course of history.

Mozare, gifted by the Goddess of Death with the powers to control shadows, is hiding lots of secrets in the dark. As Saiden’s legionnaire partner, he would do everything to protect her—even if that means killing the queen she swore to protect to save her from a fate worse than death.

With friends and enemies becoming indistinguishable from each other, can these three individuals survive long enough to fulfill their destinies without losing those closest to them, or will their missions irreparably ruin them—and possibly the entire kingdom?

Can't Catch My Breath
By Sarah Sutton


After losing my dad in a car accident, I’d rather pretend things are okay than be crushed by the grief and the guilt. Some might say that’s “living in denial,” but my friends buy the fake smiles, and my mom doesn’t seem to notice…or care.

And I’m doing great until I’m randomly paired with Vincent Castello, the most intimidating senior at Greenville High, for a class project. He’s my complete opposite—broody, moody, and he even has a lip ring. Interviewing any other classmate for this assignment would’ve been easy, but interviewing Vincent? Nearly impossible.

Because the car accident that killed my dad? It left Vincent’s father paralyzed.

Despite the awkward ice-breaker, I find myself drawn to Vincent. He sees past the mask I put up and he makes me laugh, something that I haven’t done in a long time. As we get closer, I realize that our worlds might not be that different.

Until something happens that changes it all.

I have to make a choice: can I put the past behind me, or will I let the grief and guilt of the accident consume me, and lose the guy who truly takes my breath away?

Fall in love and catch your breath with the fourth book in the Love in Fenton County standalone series, Can’t Catch My Breath, today

In The Interest of Letting Go
By D.M. Cabral


N THE INTEREST OF LETTING GO is part poetry, part memoir and part scrapbook; a collection of musings, photographs and journal entries exploring themes of falling in love, falling apart and moving on.

Broken into three parts: the flights of butterflies, the scars left behind and letting go, this collection invites you to step into someone else’s retrospection, subjective experiences, longings, heartaches and journey to self-love. Written with honesty and vulnerability, In the Interest of Letting Go is an exercise in remembering, healing and daring to let go.

I am a caffeine addicted single mom who writes words and reads books… when I’m not chasing my twins or stress eating Oreos in the laundry room… I created The Indie Bookworm out of my love and respect for Indie Authors and the stories they write. This is a place of love and magic.
