The second Tellus book is available for pre-order, and it’s a cracker!

Tellus_Bk2_Cover09_flat_frontonly_800px_159dpi Kindle eBook available to pre-order

for release April 9th 2015


“… a solid adventure interspersed by intimate interpersonal exploration…” — Piers Anthony, author of the Xanth series on The Lineage of Tellus.


Greyhart Press is delighted to publish Poison & Passion: book 2 of The Lineage of Tellus, a high fantasy series for fans of adventure, dry wit, and broad sexuality. Written by author and illustrator Lauren J. Hasbrouck. The second book in the series gets straight into the action. Lovers become enemies, and dark truths are revealed as the struggle for the world gathers pace. For maximum reading pleasure, read the first book beforehand, but that isn’t necessary to enjoy reading this book.

If you pre-order (at the reduced price of 99cents), Amazon’s Whispersynch will deliver the Kindle edition to your devices by magic on April 9th. Let’s see if we can get this book up the charts because it certainly deserves to be a resounding success.

Ashei Greyhawke just inherited the realm of Fleurdan – and a wealth of problems. Her friends have left her for their lovers, her bodyguard wants to do more to her body than guard it, and her unstable brother—the murderer of their mother—has gone missing, presumed cursed. The dragon seen flying around has to be him, surely …

Join Ashei and her companions on a journey of sacrifice and struggle to save her brother… or kill him.

Poison & Passion, is the second book in The Lineage of Tellus, a high fantasy series for fans of adventure, dry wit, and broad-minded sexuality. You don’t need to have read the first book in order to join the adventure with Poison & Passion.

Some illustrations from Poison & Passion:

Describe your scariest school experience and win this fabulous new YA paranormal adventure.

An ancient evil is surfacing. It’s in Jake’s school, in his house… and his blood!

TheTherions_ebook_Final_200px_96dpiIf you didn’t know him well, you’d think Jake had it made. He’s the best player in the school soccer team, and a lot of the girls at school can’t help giving him admiring glances that even his green eyes and good looks can’t explain. All Jake wants, though, is to fit in and be a normal 17-year-old.

But that’s not going to happen.

For when the Therions come to collect their human harvest, the only people who could prevent them are Jake and Vicky Harris, a girl from his class who doesn’t even like him.

One of the most compelling features of The Therions is that there are no safe places for Jake or Vicky to hide. School teachers, school friends: some are victims of the emerging evil, and some might be its perpetrators…

~ They’re in the shadows. They’re everywhere! ~

Jake thinks he’s just an ordinary schoolboy. Scraping a pass on his tests while doing the least amount of work, attracting admiring glances from girls, hanging with mates, and scoring goals for the soccer team: just ordinary things.

But Jake is far from normal. And his family? His sister is missing, his father changed, and his brother dead… or so Jake thinks; the truth is far more shocking.

When his school friends start to disappear, and with petite Vicky Harris the only person he can trust as his world collapses around him, it’s time for Jake to learn the truth.

The Therions are out there.

And they’re almost ready to reap their human harvest.

‘The Therions’ will grip fans of YA paranormal adventures. 

The Kindle edition of The Therions is available to pre-order now for delivery on Monday at a special launch price of 99c/ 77p.

Piers Anthony and Eleanor of Aquitaine

They say that the mark of a true writer is to write. That might sound obvious, but plenty of authors don’t. They become sidetracked, dry up, give up, or are just too busy enjoying their royalties (though not many could say that last one). By this yardstick Piers Anthony is as writerly as they get, having authored over 150 books.

He has claimed that one of his greatest achievements has been to publish a book for every letter of the alphabet, from Anthonology to Zombie Lover. That’s a cool achievement, but one thing he has yet to achieve (probably) is to be mentioned in the same breath as Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Eleanor of Aquitaine

Eleanor of Aquitaine

Until now.

The reason I’m coming all Piers Anthony at you is because one of our Greyhart authors (Lola aka LJ Hasbrouck) drew inspiration from his ‘Xanth‘ series when writing her own ‘Lineage of Tellus‘ books. Piers was gracious enough to read the first Tellus book and wrote some very positive comments for the August 2014 (or ‘AwGhost’) newsletter on his website (here). I think Lola was thrilled and so was I (when I was a teenager, his Apprentice Adept series had a big impact on me). 

DaughtersofBabylon2Eleanor of Aquitaine doesn’t feature in Lola’s Tellus books but is one of the principal characters in Elaine Stirling’s literary historical mystery, Daughters of Babylon. We recently launched Elaine’s book at a special promotional price, which expires at the end of this week. So buy this book today!

While unexpectedly finding myself in downtown Toronto last week (practically on Elaine’s doorstep) I snapped this picture of our Ontario offices for the Tellus books. Some stern words were required when I saw the sign writer had missed off one of the ‘l’s!
