Goddess Legacy: Goddess Series Book 1

by M.W. Muse

Legacy Kore is an average seventeen year old with your basic insane crush on the hottest guy in school… rather Adin Shepard was the hottest guy in school before he graduated a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s summer vacation and she’s not sure when she’ll get to see him again. Until he shows up at her surprise seventeenth birthday party. Cue saliva glands–it’s time to drool.

But her giddiness is cut short when her guardian delivers an emotional blow, telling Legacy her mother hadn’t died when she was baby, but that she’d left for Legacy’s protection all those years ago. After the initial shock, she expects some story about how her mother was in the Witness Protection Program or something else just as crazy, but when she’s told that her mother is a Greek Goddess and that Legacy is changing into one too, she thinks her guardian needs a trip to a mental hospital. Legacy a goddess? Um, yeah. Right. And her BFF is the Easter Bunny.

While trying to make sense out of something that was impossible to believe, Adin asks Legacy out on a date. She is thrilled that her fantasy might become a reality, but when she meets the new guy in town, River, she discovers everything isn’t always as it seems, and the legacy she wants just might not be the legacy she is destined to have.

Coyote Jack And The Bluebirds

by Paul Bisson

Famous Texas bluesman Coyote Jack has agreed to join The Bluebirds for a one night gig at their UK home venue. Freshly dumped by his fiancee, singer Charlie French hopes that this is the start of bigger and better things for him and his friends. Alas, the band’s blues have only just begun. A series of misfortunes threatens to clip the Bluebirds’ wings, and as their eccentric guest staggers from one embarrassing calamity to the next Coyote Jack’s credibility is called into question.

Have mercy! – it’s not the Texan’s fault. The airline lost his damn guitar, the Stetson wouldn’t fit in his luggage, these middle class white kids don’t know diddly about the blues…it’s no wonder old Coyote’s flustered. Right?

There’s another problem. Charlie’s band – and therefore Charlie’s world – is about to fall apart.
