An American Family Odyssey

Available in:
KINDLE and PAPERBACK

 

Tucked away in a remote cul-de-sac on the Maine coast is a place where the strange is normal, and the bizarre, is everyday. This is a place, where, if you do not have an open mind, you will loose your mind in its reality and truths. This is the home of The Monsterjunkies, An American Family Odyssey.

Residing at this place, twelve year old Crow and his fourteen year old sister, Indigo , along with their friends go down a reality curve to arrive at the harsh truth of the indelible hurt bullying, emotional abuse and prejudice can foster. The family faces ignorance combined with aggression at every step as they try to build a life for themselves in the home of their ancestors.

We are all MonsterJunkies and wear masks during our daily lives, in school, during work, hanging out with friends, imitating, being people who we look up to and admire, or those we want to be. It is those people who take off their masks and show the real person inside who are the ones that truly find the meaning of their lives.

The Monsterjunkies an American Family Odyssey, defines growing up through a cast of quirky yet engaging characters who also experience the same anxieties as any other family, enduring the issues that portend ‘coming of age.’ Not all angst and agony, it marks a clear path to the ultimate form of acceptance, the approbation of self.

Meet Author: Max W. Miller

I am not a fan of horror, decapitations, or disembowelment. Senseless blood, blood, blood does not pump-up the volume for me. If somebody’s bleeding, it shouldn’t have happened because of an accidental walk into Jason or Chucky’s backyard. I like meaningful plots, something my husband and I can try to unravel. For me, there needs to be a reason why little Judy got her throat torn out–for heaven sake.

Hi there, I’m Max. Welcome to my world of proses. I couldn’t be more honored that you are taking the time to get to know me. How awesome is that? A few things about me … I’m a Southern wife and mom with hopefully good manners and an occasional ability to be charming. I am enthralled by dreams and visions and how they come to inform, guide, and shape our decision making process. Please understand that no life should be controlled solely by dreams. Just know that the supernatural world co-exists with the natural.

I like to write about happenings that earthlings cannot explain away–events challenging traditional reasoning. These events bring to the forefront of our consciousness an understanding that the supernatural is well … very natural in some realms. I like to recall true events and mix-in my untamed imagination. I hope you enjoy my books as I have enjoyed dreaming them up. And I do mean dream!      See ya! Max

Blood Melt – Young Adult * Sci-Fi * Fantasy Fiction * Adventure

Blood Melt (Seth Cometh…) by Max W. Miller

All aliens visiting Earth are not little green things with exaggerated, oval shaped eyes. That’s what Avani Darrisaw found out when she gazed into the honey-brown irises of Seth, a prince from Amarka.

Sixteen year old Avani always knew there was more to the story about this secret war her father fought in—a war never broadcasted on the evening news. But when Counselor Vivian Brashear came from Savannah, Georgia, to her home in Winston Salem, her frustrations mounted even higher. The woman tells Avani that an alien Star Warrior has chosen her to help him come to earth, and that he must have talks with her. Avani tries to shrug-off the woman’s comments as the ranting of a lunatic, but still, her heart could not deny the gorgeous stranger now showing up in her dreams.

Pressured on every side, Avani feels she has no choice but to have these talks with Seth. Soon, their meetings throws the feisty teen into a tail spin for more reasons than one. Seth is trapped in a sphere and needs Avani to save him. She’d have to agree to undergo a ceremony, the Blood Melt, where Seth requires a deadly evacuation of her blood. As if the Blood Melt Ceremony wasn’t scary enough, if she consents to save him, a Walfarian Spiker, sworn enemy of the Amarkarues, would track and try to assassinate her. Find out whether Avani will risk her life to save Seth, and in return, how can Seth save her when he is imprisoned inside a disintegrating sphere?

You really want to read this book—fast pace, filled with intrigue, wit, and unexpected twists and turns.

Spending Christmas with a Yeti
by Max W. Miller

Amazon Order Page

Even though she had never mentioned it, Shayne Blackwell doubted that her mystical mother, Linda, didn’t know who was responsible for Shayne’s bruised face. When her mother gave her an all-expense-paid Christmas gift to an exclusive couple’s retreat, Shayne was sure something was up. The retreat, located near Seattle Washington, ascended high into the reach of Mount Rainier.
From the onset of the trip, Shayne was overtaken with an edgy feeling, rising above her husband, Ranger, insensitivity and criticism of her. The road was slippery and cold. When Ranger lost control of their SUV, Shayne witnesses a horrifying sight—something only she could see. The image of a mammoth shape wearing bristly white hair had darted from snow pile to snow pile, and then finally seizing their vehicle. She screamed frozen terror into the air. Frustration engulfed her since Ranger has no idea what the fuss was all about. She whimpered as the unwanted gargantuan guest finally eases their SUV back onto the road………..Read more

American Magic: The Book of Light

American Magic: The Book of Light

Help Support this Magical Project…..

14 year old Simon Warner sets out to rescue his kidnapped father and is violently pulled into the world of monsters and magic.

AMERICAN MAGIC is a young adult fantasy novel and the first ebook of a planned series. I have been working on the first book for the past two years. I think every writer at some point wants to examine the journey into adulthood, and AMERICAN MAGIC is the end result.

AMERICAN MAGIC gets into the teenage psyche–their hopes, fears, dreams, and most of all, the big questions–identity, finding role models, and learning that their actions affects others. All of this, while still being a great adventure story with a wide cast of fun, complex characters, and set in an exciting, fast-paced world.

AMERICAN MAGIC will be a series of six books. The subtitle “The Book of Light” refers to the book itself, rather than some mystical object in the story that the heroes must find in order to save the day. This Kickstarter campaign is to help finalize the first book and bring it into the world with the level of polish it deserves.

About the Author: Clay Held

I started writing in third grade, which was just over twenty years ago. I’ve done comics, short stories, poetry, and now I’ve reached into novels. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing from Southern Illinois University – Carbondale, where I studied under some of the absolute best teachers a developing writer could have.

I like paranormal stuff–have for as long as I can remember–so it only felt natural when I became serious about writing that I gravitated toward paranormal adventures. They’re fun to do (magic? fantastic creatures? IN!), and I end up telling very grounded, very human stories, just set against a supernatural backdrop. It’s really the best of both worlds for me.

Experience the Birth of an Epic Fantasy Novel

What is The Evenarian about?

In a world of kingdoms and empires, mages and sorcerers, there was a prophecy. It was said that a man would bring about a golden age. This messianic figure would be known in history as the Evenarian. But he must be stopped. A strange wanderer valiantly tries to prevent the dystopia that awaits in this “golden age” in which magic is removed from the world. Our hero embarks on an epic journey. His young friend, a student of magic, testifies this tale – perhaps the greatest story their history has ever (or never) known.

It’s written by me, Julia Dickinson, a long-time writer and journalist with a passion for fantasy and sci-fi. The Evenarian is my way of giving back to the fan and creative communities that have given me so much inspiration and enjoyment over the years. The Evenarian is a blend of epic tales with magical elements like Game of Thrones, and of twisted stories that make you question the true intent of history/destiny, such as 12 Monkeys.

 

About the Campaign –

A message from the author: Julia Dickinson

Why is launching a Kickstarter campaign so exciting? For me, it’s the feeling of letting you be a part of this book, The Evenarian, in a very special way. Some authors are all secluded when they write their book, not giving the slightest glimpse to strangers or family alike. But I want to share my book with you, and let you get a sense of what it’s like to write and publish a novel.

All my life I’ve been training to be an author. I’ve saved up money while working as a journalist so that I can do this. Every day after work I would come home and work on a novel that I self-published online because I wanted to perfect the art. Since it received many positive reviews, and I had enough money saved up to get started, I went for it. I’m writing full-time now, and it’s going great. I’m writing conflicts and resolutions, build-ups and action, plot and subplots. The story will be spellbinding – not in the least because there’s actual spells in it.

Sadly, I recently realized that I have enough funds to get me through writing the book, but not enough to build an audience and get the novel published. That brings up all sorts of troubling questions. What if I write a great book but nobody will be able to read it because it just needs an extra boost to get a bit of press and an editor who will make it shine for a publisher? That’s why I need you to donate to my campaign.

But this isn’t a one-way street. I can give you an inside scoop into writing and publishing, and you can give me a chance to go all the way to bookshelves and living rooms all over the world. This is where Kickstarter comes in. With each donation comes a prize.

For the price of a movie ticket, you can get the first level of inside scoops into the book and writing process. You can get a postcard in the mail with new and improved Evenarian cover art and a heartfelt thank-you note from your truly. You can also get an inside view into what literary agents see when I send them the package about my book. You can get a phone call with me where you can ask me about the writing and publishing process, or just what it’s like to live in California. It’ll be a blast. You can even get an invite to the book launch party. And most importantly, for all of the prize levels, you get your name in the book’s thank-you section!

Thanks in advance for your support. I promise it’ll be worth your while.
