Immagica
Where anything is possible.
Enter at your own risk.


The night before her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline Clayton uncovers a deep family secret. She receives an amulet from her deranged father, and he tells her she must find the book in order to save him. Rosaline is used to her dad not making any sense, so she dismisses their conversation as another of his crazy rants.

When Rosaline’s brother, Elliot, drags her to their Nana’s attic to explore, they find the old leather-bound book tucked away in a chest. It sucks them into its pages, transporting them to a magical world. Along the way Rosaline and Elliot are separated, and the only thing she wants is to find her brother and go home.

The creatures of Immagica have other ideas. After years of war their land lies in ruin. Using the amulet’s power, they want Rosaline to defeat the dragon and restore Immagica to its former glory. But Rosaline is bound to Immagica in ways she doesn’t understand, and when she discovers the truth about her family, she must follow her heart to save them all.

Title: The Problem With Heartache
Author: Lauren McKellar

The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart

Ever.

The one thing he can’t forgive.
The one thing she can’t forget

Cover Design - The Problem With Crazy by Lauren McKellar

Title: The Problem With Crazy
Author: Lauren McKellar

The problem with crazy is that crazy, by itself, has no context. It can be good crazy, bad crazy ... or crazy crazy—like it was when my ex-boyfriend sung about me on the radio.

Eighteen-year-old Kate couldn’t be more excited about finishing high school and spending the summer on tour with her boyfriend’s band. Her dad showing up drunk at graduation, however, is not exactly kicking things off on the right foot—and that’s before she finds out about his mystery illness, certain to end in death.
A mystery illness that she could inherit.
Kate has to convince everyone around her that her father is sick, not crazy. But who will be harder to convince? Her friends? Or herself?

The Problem With Crazy is a story about love and life; about overcoming obstacles, choosing to trust, and learning how to make the choices that will change your life forever.

Title: Collision
Author: Ingrid Alexandra

When two worlds collide, so do two hearts...

Meet Ella Beauchene. She has it all, beauty, wealth, popularity and an uber-hot boyfriend. Yet this fiery, misunderstood party girl is downright miserable. Despite her many blessings and 'I don't take crap' attitude, Ella feels like that's all she does - take crap. Everyone seems hell bent on making her change her rebellious ways and start marching down the straight and narrow towards a future she doesn't want. The people she thought she was closest to seem to be against her. Ella is trapped, miserable and desperate to escape.

But it seems escaping her troubles will never be any more than a dream.

That is until she meets a stranger in the woods surrounding her family home one night. A stranger who seems somehow familiar, who gets her, and who...wait for it...

...glows in the dark.

When she wakes the next morning, Ella is sure it's all been a dream. The beautiful, God-like Colton, a man whose body should have a warning label and who somehow understands her like no one else, HAS to be a figment of her imagination. That is until she is faced with frightening evidence to the contrary... evidence that forces her to consider that their meeting may have been a collision in more ways than one.

From that moment on, Ella's not sure whether it's her life she wants to escape, after all. It may just be that she is destined to escape her entire world.
