The Bellamy

Urban fantasy/horror

The Bellamy Manor Archival Library and Museum is one of the foremost in the nation, nay, in the world.  Its collections host an amazing depth and breadth of information, of historical artifacts, of documentation of life in thousands of different sorts.  Veronika Bellamy (possibly no relation, possibly some) has been working for years to get to the Bellamy, and now she has her chance.  If she can make it through her first day, she’ll be set in her dream job.

Content Warnings: Discussion of death, mention of dead bodies, missing people.

Malina and the Border Banners

fantasy

There were too many people at the party, so Malina went for a walk.  Sadly- or fatefully – the party was on the edge of the desert, where Malina Serafina Anastazja Dominika Naveed Jeleń nic Cecília O Alexandre, daughter of the King and Queen, promptly got herself lost. 

In the desert, she found a line of border banners where there wasn’t supposed to be a border.  She found a lot of cactus.  And then a sand cat and a mustang found her. 

The world – the worlds – are bigger than Malina had ever expected, and the sand cat is going to (more or less) explain it to her.

Begins here.

Purchase Negotiation/Keep Her Safe

urban fantasy/romance

Leander has living as a slave for longer than he wants to think about; he’s ended up in a far-too-posh sort of downtown black market slave market when Mr. MacDiarmad finds him. 

He’s not expecting anything more than just a different face on slavery.  What he gets – well, he’s still not sure. But he’s working as a bodyguard for Mr. MacDiarmad’s daughter, and this is turning out to be an interesting experience all around.

Content Warnings: slavery, discussion of abusive slavery in the past, magically-forced obedience

Begins here.

Saving the Cult (If not the World)

Urban Fantasy

This summer vacation that Lina’s parents have dragged her on is a bit strange and just keeps getting stranger.  For one, it’s at a hilltop campground full of rich people, and they all seem to know Lina’s parents. For another, there are people wearing robes – and not bathrobes, either. Fancy secret-society roles. For a third, Lina’s mother seems to have pulled a whole house out of a suitcase.
This is not helping with Lina’s current problem: that is, how come she’s generating force fields from her fingertips, and who can she ask about this?

Haunted House

Fae Apoc setting, apocalyptic fantasy/romance
When the strange man buys Mélanie from the slavemonger, she’s expecting him to be just like her former owners – at best, she’s hoping he might be a bit kinder.  Maybe give her a little more freedom.
She’s not expecting him to be generous and friendly, to treat her like a person – she’s also not expecting him to be a thief.
She was certainly not expecting his house to have such a personality!
