She's running from her past, he's hiding his.

When Sami unearths some family secrets, she has to flee England. With everything she's based her life on feeling uncertain, she decides to rediscover herself in the coastal town of Cypress Cove. On the way to California she makes a bucket list of things to do while in America. She never planned on meeting a man like Nick. With each item they check off her list, Samantha falls just a little more for him.

Nick lives a simple life in his hometown Cypress Cove, renting out kayaks and surfboards and running his vacation rentals. He's been single since college and for his own reasons doesn't believe he can pursue romance ever again. When Samantha moves in next door, Nick decides to help her with her bucket list as a way to break up the monotony of his life while helping out the new woman in town.

Both Nick and Sami want to put the past behind them, but some secrets refuse to stay buried. When what they've been hiding catches up with them, will they be able to hold onto one another?

Someone to Hold
(The Calloway Inn #1)
By Patty H. Scott
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 262 Pages
April 2, 2021

She's a small town girl. He's got dreams bigger than their past.

Amelia loves her life in Cypress Cove. It’s all she’s known, and despite the typical quirks of small-town life, she wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else. She’s had a love and lost him. Now she spends her days helping on her parents’ small farm, at her Nana’s inn, and running her own hospitality business to local tourists. She doesn’t have time for romance, especially not with a man like Dalton.

Dalton Price couldn’t wait to move to a big city when he graduated high school. He had a crush on Amelia, but his future was elsewhere. When his company decides to open a real estate branch in Cypress Cove, Dalton comes back to oversee the project. What he didn’t count on was how seeing Amelia would affect him. His feelings have only gotten stronger over the years away. But Dalton’s heart has been broken and he’s hesitant to love again.

When Dalton decides he’s willing to risk it all for Amelia, can he convince her he won’t leave this time?

Hate Notes
(Lakeview Prep #1)
By Gracie Graham
Young Adult Contemporary
Paperback & ebook, 199 Pages
June 26, 2021

Topher Elliot is high school royalty.

The king of Lakeview prep.

You know the type. Disgustingly rich. Blond-haired. Eyes the color of a clear, blue sky. And muscles for days.

He also happens to be enemy #1, the bane of my existence.

Only, now my scholarship is in jeopardy and, like the peasant I am, I must tutor the king himself if I want to graduate.

Still, if I have to be around him, I might as well make it worth my while. So I send him a scathing text, telling him exactly what I think about him. But he mistakes me for someone else. That’s when I hatch a plan: get dirt on the king, and watch his reign crumble.

It’s about time someone made the king come tumbling down.

The Mostly Real McCoy
(Apple Valley Love Stories #1)
By Julie Christianson
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 284 Pages
April 30, 2021

Our arrangement was supposed to be for just one month...

Single-dad Mac needs a temporary nanny for his daughter, Daisy. I need a second job until my promotion kicks in. Since our arrangement is only for one month, I am positive I won’t get attached. Medium positive. Okay, I’m negative.

This is a terrible idea.

Because I can’t give Mac and Daisy what they need, and I won’t risk breaking their hearts. But his green eyes and her crooked pigtails have me dreaming about forever. And who can resist a dad buying pink ballerina tights after a day spent in a hard hat?

The thing is Mac is a fixer, and I need to repair my own life. Better yet, I don’t want to feel broken. So it’s a good thing the worst has already happened to me. Nothing will hurt more now.

Water can’t get wetter, Brooke.

That’s what I keep telling myself.

Too bad I’m all wrong...

My Own Best Enemy
(Apple Valley Love Stories #2)
By Julie Christianson
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook
September 30, 2021

This isn’t a wedding. This is war …

I get it. We were in elementary school. Just a couple of kids on the playground. But after Nash Hendrix called me Enemy instead of Emily, his stupid nickname ruined my life.

Now our best friends are getting married, and they expect me to stand across the aisle from Nash the Ruiner without killing him?

Whatever. I can survive being maid of honor. It’s only for one weekend.

Until it’s not.

When I get roped into wedding planning at the same places Nash is fundraising, I’m ready to blow up our temporary truce.

All I wanted was to start over. New job. New permanently-single status.

But the more time we spend together, the more I feel like … not murdering him.

Is it possible Nash and I don't hate each other?

No way. He’s still my enemy.

My big, dumb enemy.

My big, dumb, gorgeous, sweet-talking, dog-loving —

Emi, you’re doomed.

Author Interview

What inspired you to write Inventing Vivian?

I wanted to write a story where the woman was the smart one, all logical and practical, while the man was the one who was moved by his emotions. I am kind of tired of people assuming that science is for boys and poetry and art are for girls. The whole idea is outdated, and there are so many women and girls who are amazing at math and science and the STEM subjects.

What do you love the most about this story?

I love having a heroine who is awkward and nerdy, and the hero loves her anyway.

What challenged you about writing it?

I am not smart with science and math and chemistry and all the things Vivian knows, so I had to learn a lot. I had so many questions, and the ones I couldn't answer with google, I luckily found smart people to answer. That took a lot of work, hunting down those answers.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

I relate most to Lord Benedict. He is all about peace and meditation and acting on his feelings rather than logic. I'm like that, I think.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

There is a character in this story who is an immigrant to London from China, and it was important to me to represent that part of the population. London was such a crowded city--I guess it still is--with all kinds of people. Not just lords and ladies. And I really don't want to be preachy or have people feel like they were expected to learn a lesson from my story, but immigration and the rights of immigrants is important to me. My grandpa was an immigrant.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

When I'm not writing, I love to play tennis. I try to play every day, and usually do

Inventing Vivian
(The Blue Orchid Society #2)
By Jennifer Moore
Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 224 Pages
June 7, 2021 by Covenant Communications

Ladies of London’s High Society are known for their social graces and poise. Vivian Kirby boasts neither of these enviable qualities, though she does offer impressive conversation on chemical compositions. Unfortunately, it appears that not many men want a brilliant wife. So it is that Vivian finds kinship with a group of young women who embrace each other’s differences: The Blue Orchid Society.

After an extended stay in China, Lord Benedict has returned transformed to his family’s estate, where an encounter with Vivian, whose scientific knowledge he once undermined, leaves him determined to make amends. He arranges to help forward her research—anonymously, of course. Through letters, Vivian establishes a warm friendship with her secret benefactor, even as she’s unexpectedly drawn into a murder investigation that forces her to work alongside Benedict to unearth the truth. Soon, Vivian fears she may be falling in love with two men, never suspecting that they are one and the same.

Solving Sophronia
(The Blue Orchid Society #1)
By Jennifer Moore
Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 224 Pages
May 1, 2020 by Covenant Communications

Lady Sophronia Bremerton is a far cry from the typical debutante, but she's the toast of London's upper class for one simple reason: she's a society columnist for the London Illustrated News, and the gentry loves seeing their exploits printed in the gossip pages. But Sophie has bigger plans - she aspires to be an investigative reporter. When a stuffy ballroom at yet another Season proves to be nothing more than the usual rumor mill, Sophie seeks respite in the library alongside four other young women who, for their own reasons, are also looking for escape. As the conversation turns to their secret ambitions, the women form a sisterhood and a bold plan: they will make their dreams a reality, no matter the obstacles. Thus begins the Blue Orchid Society.

Hearing of a murder in a London rookery, Sophie seizes the opportunity to prove her skills. Detective Jonathan Graham doesn't believe a civilian, a noblewoman at that, should be anywhere near a murder investigation, but Sophie insists on helping bring the killer to justice. Her investigative prowess doesn't go unnoticed by the police, especially Jonathan, who can't decide whether this intrepid reporter is a thorn in his side or the woman of his dreams. But as the case grows more complicated and dangerous, their very lives - and their hearts - may be at risk.

We're launching the Book Tour for THE SWORD IN HIS HAND by J.J. Fischer!

We're launching the Book Tour for THE SWORD IN HIS HAND by J.J. Fischer!


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write The Sword in His Hand?

There’s a wonderful saying: “Reading is like breathing in, writing is like breathing out” (Pam Allyn). I think every writer first falls in love with stories, so much so that they reach a point where they just need to create stories of their own.

Stories do so much for us—they allow us to test out ideas, to teach and inspire and challenge, to work through our triumphs and our pains, and to explore what it is to be human. Fiction, in particular, does a wonderful job of reflecting truth. As a Christian, I also believe that all stories are a part of the ultimate Story—the redemption story God has been writing for us since the world began. Composing stories that reflect and honor this profound narrative is kind of like shining a light on a diamond. It only really illuminates one small part of a complex, multi-faceted whole, but in that moment, you catch a glimpse of life-changing truth. And capturing that moment in a story—there’s really nothing like it.

For me, writing is like a reflex. It’s an instinct and a creative impulse and a way of making sense of what’s happened to me. I wouldn’t say I’m deliriously happy when I write, but it’s definitely how I feel closest to God. It’s also a huge part of how I worship Him.

The Sword in His Hand will always be a bit special to me. It’s my debut novel, my first official foray into writing. I began writing it in 2006, when I was fourteen, during a family holiday around Australia. On the west coast, in a place called Jurien Bay, I had a dream about the opening scene. It contained pretty much every cliché known to man, and eventually found its way to the electronic trash can, but by that time I’d seriously caught the writing bug, and Sword was born. In the end, it became a little of everything: a creative outlet; a friend in hard times; a way of wrestling with doubts and questions about my faith.

Sometimes people ask, “Why fantasy?” Why not write crime or historical fiction or romance? But this is a no-brainer for me. Creating worlds—which are always rather paltry echoes of the world that God has created—reminds me of the fact that humans are made in the image of their Creator. Our God is a creative and inventive God, and human creativity is a reflection of divine creativity. I feel that I reflect His image when I’m weaving stories that reflect His truth. And yet, the more I write, the more I’m convinced that I’m not really creating but rearranging.

In that sense, world-building makes me feel terrifyingly small… and at the same time, deeply in awe of the God who didn’t just plonk landmarks on a map and call them things like “The Forbidden Forest” and “The Dark Lands”, but actually came up with all the building blocks in the first place. Incredible, right?

What do you love the most about this story?

Wonderful things come from terrible things, and that’s one of the key messages of Sword. We wrestle with darkness and despair, but there is always hope in Jesus. Sometimes I wince when I think about everything El and Torsten go through (when I was writing the sequel, my mum, who’d read the first book, would regularly ask me “How’s El doing today? Is she okay?”). And honestly, the end of Book 1 leaves everything in a pretty hopeless state.

But then comes Book 2, The Secret of Fire. And even though you don’t know how anything is going to get better, everything changes dramatically. Redemption comes from unexpected corners. Lives are restored. And I love that. I love that I can reflect the tiniest part of humanity’s own redemptive love story.

What challenged you about writing it?

Writing is hard work. It’s hard to create characters from scratch, to put yourself constantly in their shoes, to watch as they live and grow (and maybe even die). There’s a scene in Sword which still makes me shed tears each time I read it because it reflects my own struggles and grief. I’m deeply empathic, and so when something happens to a character, I sometimes feel as if it’s happening to me.

The flip side of that coin is that the act of writing is wonderfully cathartic; it definitely helps me to mature and process my own life. Writing is phenomenal therapy. It allows me to explore alternate points-of-view and to develop empathy with people whose shoes I wouldn’t normally inhabit, even to ask questions I may not have had the courage to ask within myself. It’s really a tremendous way to grow as a person.

I must admit, however, that I’m a little worried at times at how much I enjoy writing villains. I love a good redemptive character arc!

Which character do you most relate to and why?

All my characters have a little of me in them, but my main characters, Torsten and El, will always be special. In a way, they are both projections of my teenage self; two sides of the same coin, if you will. Torsten is loyal, passionate, and dangerously all-or-nothing; he’s a deeply skeptical person who doesn’t take things at face value. He asks hard questions and he’s not afraid of difficult answers. On the other hand, El is kind, idealistic, and compassionate. She’s a people-pleaser who’s ridden with doubts and crippled by past choices. She’s much braver than I would be in her circumstances, but I relate to her struggles with courage, as well as her desire to see the best in people.

Neither Torsten or El are complete in themselves; they not only need each other, but they need God. God essentially shows them that they are only ever made whole in Him. And I love that message. It’s the message that I first came to hear as a teenager, which essentially reconciled two very different sides of my own personality.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I think the best stories are the ones that change us. The ones where we close the book and walk away, but we cannot help but be irrevocably changed—transformed, even. I’ve read numerous books, but I continually come back to the stories that provoke deep emotion from me. The stories that frustrate and inspire and challenge and encourage me, that maybe even rock the foundations of my comfortable world.

Perhaps it’s too ambitious a goal, but I really hope that every one of my stories impacts my readers in some way. My faith is the cornerstone of my life—without it, I would not be the person I am today—and so faith is really what colors my stories. Many books indelibly imprint on the mind—and fewer still make their mark on the heart—but I also want to write fiction that feeds the soul. My books celebrate hope, courage, love, and perseverance in the midst of suffering, violence, oppression, and hatred. They feature characters who seek to triumph in the midst of adversity and struggle.

It has recently become fashionable to have a “life verse”—a Bible verse that speaks into a significant part of one's life. If I had to choose, my “life verse” is Psalm 42:7: “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me." As a character in my second book muses—inspired by this very verse—the deep in us is only an echo of the depth of God. I could write my entire life and not uncover even a little corner of the richness of the Author of life. But to reflect that depth is my calling, and it is my honest delight to honor it.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

Anyone who knows me well is familiar with my obsessions: Jesus, writing and reading books, floristry, and chickens. I’ve dabbled in martial arts, soccer, and basketball, though I could never be mistaken for an athlete. I love music and sometimes I swap my keyboard for another keyboard—that is, a piano.

I’m originally a clinically-trained psychologist, so I’m passionate about all things mental health, and I frequently blog about my struggles with chronic illness (I was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome/Disease). Catching up with family and friends is my most common pastime—that, and obsessively checking the weather app for a forecast of rain. It never rains enough for my Anglophile soul.

The Sword in His Hand
(The Darcentaria Duology #1)
By J.J. Fischer
Christian Historical Fantasy
Paperback & ebook, 496 Pages
February 9, 2021 by Ambassador International

“One is an opportunity. Two is a threat. Three is an invasion.”

For hundreds of years, strange things have been washing up on the shores of Darcentaria. But when a young foreign woman named El is found unconscious on the beach amidst the burning wreckage of a strange metal craft, the villagers of Odessa are immediately suspicious—is she an agent of the Dalriadan Empire, their cruel oppressors for as long as they can remember? Or does she come from the Outside, the vast and legendary lands beyond their borders from which no man or woman alive has ever returned?

Torsten Eiselher, a talented young swordsman, has spent the last nine years of his life wrongfully imprisoned by his uncle, the Empire’s ruler. Betrayed and deceived at every turn, Torsten has survived by keeping a firm grip on his sword—and by staying well away from anything to do with the Outside. But when his young sister is murdered, Torsten finds himself irrevocably drawn to El despite her Outsider heritage—and he begins to question everything he has been told about her world.

Intrigued by the existence of a powerful and dangerously advanced world within his reach, the Empire’s ruler, Jurien Arminius, launches a hunt for El and the two Outsiders that arrived with her—the ones who could help him win his war against Torsten and the rebellion that threatens to topple his Empire.

Suddenly, Torsten is forced to choose between defeating his long-term enemy or saving the woman he has come to love . . .

Each summer my family visits Mackinac Island in Michigan. It’s one of my favorite places and so inspiring. Every time we go, I admire the old homes and imagine their history. While this type of thinking is what led me to write the first Evening Island book (Meet Me at Sunset), it also inspired the character of Andrea in Summer’s End, as well as the circumstances that led to the Taylor sisters reuniting for a couple life-changing weeks.

What do you love the most about this story?

Because I was so inspired by the large, historic homes, I loved to think that the house itself could change a family. Although the sisters have each gone their separate ways as adults, they all share the same fond memories and connection to their summer house, which ultimately allows them to come together again, both in the physical and emotional sense.

What challenged you about writing it?

I wrote a large part of this book during the pandemic, when my place of inspiration felt very distant and at times, unreachable. I certainly had to stretch my imagination to channel the wonderful world that is Evening Island while essentially locked down, in winter, in my office.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

There’s a piece of me in all of my characters, but my personality is most similar to Heather in this book. Like Heather, I’m creative by nature and more than a bit of a homebody. Though I haven’t experienced Heather’s struggles, I’m prone to react as she did to personal setbacks.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I’d hope that readers find an escape in this book. The island itself is an escape for the sisters in this book, and the house is a haven. It’s nice to think that there is one place you can go where all your problems feel just a little smaller. Sometimes, we can’t get away like that in the physical sense, and that is the wonderful thing about reading.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

I’m sure it will come as no surprise that my favorite pastime is reading. I also love spending time with my dogs and walking along the lakefront near our house.

Kim is just weeks away from what should be her dream wedding, but as the big day draws closer, her doubts only grow stronger. Some time away may be just the thing she needs to help clear her head…or change her heart.

Heather has always been the reliable sister, but a recent divorce has made everything feel uncertain. When a second chance with an old flame comes along, she must decide if a summer love can last a lifetime.

Andrea’s career is her top priority, even if her heart is no longer in it. When her boss suggests a vacation, a couple of weeks on the island leads to the inspiration she was searching for, and not just for work…

Thanks to the beauty of the island and the memories they share, the sisters come together, search their hearts, and discover what the future holds for each of them at summer’s end.

Meet Me at Sunset
(Evening Island #1)
By Olivia Miles
Women's Fiction/Romance
Paperback & ebook, 324 Pages
February 25, 2020 by Rosewood Press

From USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Miles comes the first in a collection of stand-alone novels set on the fictional shores of Evening Island—just a ferry ride across the lake from Blue Harbor, home to the newest heartwarming series!

The Morgan sisters spent many blissful summers at their family's lake house growing up, but as they grew older, their lives took very different paths.

Hope adores her twin girls, but she doesn't love being a stay-at-home mom. When her workaholic husband doesn't support her career aspirations, she packs up the kids and goes to Sunset Cottage, thinking that some time apart will help her decide what she really wants-but when the life she dreamed of becomes a possibility, she is more torn than ever.

Gemma was supposed to be planning her wedding, not trying to get back deposits. And she was supposed to be finished writing her latest romance novel, not staring at a blank screen. Lost and down on her luck, she heads north to Evening Island, hoping to find the inspiration she needs to fill the page, and maybe, her heart.

Ellie is almost perfectly content living in the house that once belonged to her grandmother, even if it does get a little lonely sometimes. Still, work is steady at her art studio and the island continues to serve as a muse, especially when her first love makes a surprise return.

In the course of a month, the Morgan sisters learn that despite their differences and their personal struggles, they might just have more in common than the old summer cottage that they inherited.
