Hello Fearless Readers!
This year has been a rough one for us all. From the Corona virus to protests, from murder hornets to forest fires, from TikTok to Hurricanes, 2020 has been one massive mess. There have been high highs and low lows with some of us facing joblessness, frustration, depression and exhaustion. I , along with many of you, have experienced them all.
We've lost some great people and seen true heroism, we've seen humanity in all aspects, some gracious and beautiful, some self-serving and horrific. But through it all, I've tried to keep focus on positive things in this world.
My biggest distraction, other than writing, has been reading. So, while we ponder our journey accepting the new normal, here are some offerings to keep your mind off of what's next.

Life, death, and rebirth, Isis's and Osiris's future hinges on all three.
A century ago, the Dragon Kingdom of Nebty was lost to darkness. Invaded by demon hordes hellbent on stealing two powerful scepters, the Demon King claimed the preternatural realm as his own. To survive, the dragons fled their beloved home and sought refuge in the human realm.
Having lived most of their lives in human form, Queen Isis and Rock Dragon Osiris, mere children during the Great Exodus, find themselves clinging to their culture and the ties that bind what's left of Dragonkind. Safe and assured that they are free from the threat of demons, their love flourishes. Yet, on one horrific night, their lives are shattered by tragedy and betrayal. They learn that no realm is beyond the brutal reach of the Demon King.
Scores must be settled.
Love must be remembered.
And a lost nation must be reclaimed.
