Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of Dead City by James Ponti, the first in a trilogy of middle grade novels about a 12-year-old zombie killer – now available at Libro.fm, Audible, and elsewhere. The next installment, Blue Moon, is available for pre-order at Audible and Libro.fm, and the final book in the series, Dark Days, is coming soon! Molly Bigelow is an awesome, kick-ass young heroine.
A tween takes on undead New Yorkers in this paranormal action-adventure that “breathes new life into the zombie genre” (Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games).
Most kids have enough to deal with between school, homework, extracurricular activities, and friends, but Molly Bigelow isn’t your typical tween. By day, Molly attends MIST – the Metropolitan Institute of Science and Technology – but it’s what she’s learning outside of school that sets her apart from her classmates. Molly is a zombie hunter, just like her mother.
This, however, is news to Molly. Now she must come to terms with not only the idea that zombies exist, but also that they’re everywhere, and it’s her job to help police them and keep the peace. Sure, she’d like to be a regular kid, but “regular” just isn’t possible when it turns out the most revered (or feared, depending on your perspective) zombie hunter in the history of New York City is your mother. It seems Molly’s got some legendary footsteps to follow….

Book #4 in the wonderful YA fantasy series The Shards of Excalibur is now available at Audible! Cave Beneath the Sea by Edward Willett is the latest installment in this contemporary retelling of Arthurian legends. The final book, Door Into Faerie, will be coming out very soon. Elizabeth is proud to have narrated this excellent series, with Books 1-3 already available at Audible.
The fourth shard of Excalibur might come with a price Ariane doesn’t want to pay: her mother.
Seeking to recover the shards of King Arthur’s sword Excalibur before Rex Major (the ancient sorcerer Merlin in a modern-day guise), Ariane and Wally have traveled around the world, and their quest is not yet over. Ariane’s magical powers as heir to the Lady of the Lake, combined with Wally’s clever thinking, have enabled them to hang on to two of the three shards they’ve located so far – but Rex Major still has one shard of his own and will stop at nothing to claim all the pieces for himself and use its power to rule Earth and invade the magical realm of Faerie.
And now Major has his eyes on a big prize: Ariane’s mother, who went missing after she refused the power of the Lady of the Lake.
Thanks to Wally, Ariane knows her mother is alive – and that Rex Major is trying to find her. If he succeeds, Ariane fears she’ll have no choice but to surrender the two shards she and Wally possess, because she’ll do anything – and give up everything – to have her mother back with her again.
Ariane and Wally race to the Caribbean as they try to find Ariane’s mother and the fourth shard of Excalibur before Major does. As they struggle to stop Major, Ariane and Wally face desperate danger…and must make the most difficult decisions of their lives.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of Book #3 in the Shards of Excalibur series by Edward Willett: Lake in the Clouds, now available at Audible. The first two books in the series – Song of the Sword and Twist of the Blade – are also available, and Elizabeth will release the final two installments very soon. Cave Beneath the Sea (Book #4) is in post-production, and Door Into Faerie (Book #5) is in production now. This wonderful YA series is a Canadian reboot of the King Arthur legend, featuring a modern-day Lady of the Lake and descendents of Arthur himself.
Ariane is on her own and on the run. Rex Major has swayed her erstwhile best friend Wally to his side. And when she finally hears the faint call of the third Shard of Excalibur, it’s on the other side of the world, in New Zealand!
Wally, meanwhile, is discovering that life as Major’s “guest” isn’t all it promised, especially when he finds out Major’s plans for Ariane’s aunt. With Aunt Phyllis under threat, Ariane has no choice but to walk directly into Rex’s trap – and hope she can find a way to protect both the Shard and those she loves.
Elizabeth is excited to announce her latest audiobook release: Song of the Sword by Edward Willett, the first book in the Shards of Excalibur series, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the other four books in the series for ACX later this year. This series has garnered some stellar reviews – check out the Audible page, or visit the author’s website to read them.
Ariane’s life is complicated. Her mother suddenly disappeared two and a half years ago, she’s trying to get used to living with her aunt after bouncing around a series of foster homes, and she’s taking a lot of grief from the clique of “in” girls at school. To make matters even worse, now she’s having strange dreams involving swords and knights and battles, and things seem to get weird whenever she touches water.
The weirdness comes to a head the morning the lake starts singing to her. Next thing she knows, she’s underwater, talking to the Lady of the Lake of King Arthur fame (who turns out to be an ancestor), has acquired a nerdy sidekick, Wally, has been bestowed magical powers, and has been sent on a quest to find the five scattered shards of Excalibur before the powerful wizard Merlin, in his unsuspected modern-day guise, can get his hands on them. Can Ariane and Wally figure out how to use her new abilities to meet the challenge…or will they die trying?
