Does music have the power to invade the soul?
Beware of the Dark Muse…
Sixteen year old Muddy Rivers has always wanted to fit in with the “regular” crowd. He aches for a romance with his blind friend, Poe, but knows he doesn’t stand a chance. He hopes that his life as the guitarist for his band, the Accidentals, will help him accomplish gaining her attention and acceptance from others.. But then his older brother disappears playing a mysterious song and Muddy is plunged into a world of music where songs come to life. He learns where musicians get their ideas and at what price. He must learn to harness the power of the legendary crossroads and what lies on the other side if they are to conquer a series of trials which no one expects “special” or “different” teens to even survive.
Along with drummer Otis, singer Poe, and saxophonist Corey, each battling their own disabilities or demons, Muddy must cross the river that is the source for all creativity. Once there, the band fights a world alive with horrors none can imagine and realize their path to redemption is hindered by two obstacles that may trap them there forever, if not destroy them: the Tritons, vicious inhuman leaders of the strange world, and the Dark Muse, something, or someone who wields the full power of the River. Their fight to survive and retrieve his brother calls for them to build a stairway to heaven, sail smoke on the water, become iron men, and walk this way across the abyss. But their ultimate battle may prove in vain–it might not save Muddy’s brother from the darkness, and may awaken something far more deadly.

Although thrilled to be away from her psychotic, divorcing parents, with no cell phone or internet access, Cathy is positive that her summer is going to be wretched. Just when she begins to make friends, and even finds a crush to drool over, her new friend Lauren vanishes. When a body surfaces in Beach Point Bay, Cathy is forced to face the question: has the Sea Side Strangler struck again?
T.J. Jackson just wants to be a normal high school kid. Unfortunately, his paranormal ability — and the responsibility that goes with it — won’t let him. He and fellow ghost hunters Bortnicker and LouAnne have made a name for themselves as reality TV stars, but now the stakes are higher. A witch from the 1600s has returned to avenge her death, and the Junior Gonzo Ghost Chasers must stop her. It sounds like great TV, but this time adventure and fame aren’t what’s important. This time, the fate of T.J.’s home town hangs in the balance…and the clock is ticking.
Are some secrets worth dying for?
Sixteen-year-old Aimee doesn’t like to touch people. One touch and she sees their past. One graze over her skin and she can see all the good and bad deeds a person has ever done.

With the help of her friends Aimee must sift through her stolen memories to determine clues. The quest to find a killer unravels the very fabric of her carefully woven life. He won’t stop until he silences her- for only she knows all his secrets. She will have to summon all of her inner strength to decide what she must do: hunt or be hunted. Are some secrets worth dying for?

After a chance meeting Quinn reluctantly allows actor Jason Preston into her life, which has complications of its own. She’s not used to letting people get close. Falling for him while fighting for her life, and her family’s legacy, only complicates things more. Jason shows her exactly what she stands to lose, especially when she’s being attacked by the mysterious entity. Each attack is more violent and terrifying than the last.

It wants her life.
