About the Book

Lucy Wright, sixteen and a paraplegic after a recent car accident that took her mother's life, lives in Queensland on a 10,000 acre farm with her father. When Lucy investigates strange lights over the creek at the bottom of the property, she discovers a mystery that links the lights to the science of cymatics and Scotland's ancient Rosslyn Chapel.

But beyond the chapel is an even larger mystery. One that links the music the chapel contains to Norway's mysterious Hessdalen lights, and beyond that to Saturn and to the stars. Lucy's discoveries catapult her into a parallel universe connected to our own by means of resonance and sound, where a newly emerging world trembles on the edge of disaster. As realities divide, her mission in this new world is revealed and she finds herself part of a love story that will span the galaxy.


"What a delightful discovery this book has been! Following Lucy's journey through self-pity, self-discovery, and the beginnings of self-realization has been an inspiration to me. I liked that much of the mystery in the author's world is linked to some of the mysteries in our own world. It blurred the lines between fantasy, reality, and the realm of possibilities. I look forward to reading the next book in this series!" Melissa King, NetGalley

Forthcoming releases for 2014

Print On Demand

Frontier Incursion by Leonie Rogers

The release of our second print on demand will be Leonie Roger's Frontier Incursion. We've finally received the proofs from our US printer (the recent winter storms in the US, coupled with the Christmas rush resulted in a significant delay with delivery), but they're here now and we're going through them with a fine tooth comb. The cover's title has been given a revamp by Scarlett Rugers to further enhance the original gorgeous artwork by Emma Llewelyn.

Frontier Resistance by Leonie Rogers

The much awaited sequel to Frontier Incursion is almost here. Leonie is presently working her way through the first set of editorial changes while Emma Llewelyn has already started on the cover (while fitting in a trip to Africa).

Isis, Vampires and Ghosts - Oh my! by Janis Hill

Cover - Isis, Vampires and Ghosts - Oh My

To banish Branwyre, the vampire infecting her sister's soul, Stephanie must recover Branwyre's crucible. In doing so she finds herself bound to the ghost of a pissed off Buddhist monk, makes several deals with both creatures of the Dark and Light, and learns what happens if you try to imprison a vampire with a sunbed.

The rather stunning cover was designed by (Jade Zivanovic). This is the first time we've worked with Jade but it certainly won't be the last. Scarlett Rugers once again did the title work.

Presently the editor is busy marking up the first set of changes for Janis' attention. In the meantime you can read more about the background to Stephanie's world on a blog Janis wrote entitled - Welcome to my world and what lies within.

Across the Bridge of Ice by Ruth Fox

In 'The City of Silver Light', Keira Leichman spent the night lost in a wild snowstorm that struck Cassidy Heights. But what really happened that night? Not even Keira can be sure. What she does know is that she's been having strange dreams since the accident, and now she's stuck with a broken ankle and the possibility of never playing soccer again. That is, until she finds Jake's telescope, which calls her to the City of Silver Light.

The editing process is almost complete and Ruth is now working on the cover.
