I’m so excited to wish Molly Cochran and Donn Cortez happy book birthdays today!
I’ve loved Molly Cochran’s work ever since the co-written Arthurian classic THE FOREVER KING. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to present her debut young adult novel LEGACY from Simon & Schuster/ Paula Wiseman Books.
When her widowed father dumps 16-year-old Katy Jessevar in a boarding school in Whitfield, Massachusetts, she has no idea that fate has just opened the door to both her future and her past. Nearly everyone in Whitfield is a witch, as is Katy herself, although she has struggled all her life to hide her unusual talents. Stuck at a boarding school where her fellow studens seem to despise her, Katy soon discovers that Whitfield is the place where her mother commited suicide under mysterious circumstances when Katy was just a small child. With dark forces converging on Whitfield, it’s up to Katy to unravel her family’s many secrets to save the boy she loves and the town itself from destruction.
“Cochran’s first title for young adults is a rip-roaring adventure” – Booklist
“In her YA debut, bestselling adult author Cochran (the Forever King trilogy) presents an exciting and well-written tale of contemporary witchcraft and romance.” – Publishers Weekly
“A fast-paced, electrifying read! My heart throbbed for the tender romance trapped in a world of boarding-school backstabbing. With a courageous yet achingly human heroine, Molly Cochran made me believe in magic!” – Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of the SHADE trilogy

Also brand spankin’ new Donn Cortez’s novel REMOTE, sequel to his dark thriller THE CLOSER, now in digital for Apple, Kindle, Nook….
The Closer is back.
Jack Salter is still hunting killers, but his new quarry is unlike the others. The man who calls himself Remote wants the same thing Jack does, to make the world a better place by removing those who do evil–but Remote’s methods are even more extreme. To catch him, Jack will have to seek an alliance with him–one that leads to a trap with no exit. Alone and unarmed, Jack must fight for his freedom in the bizarre lair of a monster whose relationship to pain is even stranger than Jack’s.
Meanwhile, his partner Nikki is fighting a battle of her own–to break the gargantuan, psychotic biker named Goliath to her will, before he breaks out of the improvised prison she’s keeping him in.
There are many secrets to be uncovered–but the Closer’s usual methods are not an option. To get to the truth, he’ll have to go further than he ever has before, past the very edge of his remaining humanity.
