CONNECTING IS TOUGH WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN TOUCH

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Benson wasn't always germophobic. There was a time she didn't worry obsessively about rogue pathogens lurking on every surface, lying in wait to contaminate her. But that was before her brother Toby's premature birth left him with underdeveloped lungs. Before she got Covid and infected him, putting his already fragile life in danger.

To protect Toby's health in the years that follow, Phoebe dedicates herself to pathogen avoidance, refusing to touch any potential sources of contamination—handrails, doorknobs, vending machine buttons, and even other people—leading to an unintended life of seclusion. By the time she reaches high school, her only sources of respite are pottery class and her friendship with Walter, the elderly owner of the used bookstore where she works part-time.

Now Walter's devised a plan to help Phoebe overcome her anxiety, and she must decide whether to continue isolating herself or risk everything initiating a friendship with the charming subway busker she can't help but want to touch.

A Story of Giants - Book 1
Which side do you choose when your family is both the good and evil of the Giants who guard our realm of endless worlds?

First Book in New YA Fantasy Series

What if I told you that our world was but one on a string, like an infinite length of pearls? Only those of us whose gifts have awakened, the "Giants" among us, can travel this string, called a realm, and, in rare cases, transverse multiple realms. Giants live on the principles of peace and humility, keeping watch over the infinite worlds under the guidance of the Council which dictates a policy of non-interference in the absence of a world's imminent self-destruction.

18-year old Leanna Salinger emerges as a Warrior Giant. But even among her own kind, she is alone. She won't open her heart to anyone beyond her younger sister Violet. When insurgents plot to overthrow the Council, Leanna and her fellow trainees embark on a multi-world quest to protect it. To survive, Leanna must fight the tragic past which has come to define her and learn to open her heart to the man who loves her.

Daughter of Darkness

She is destined to kill a demon. He is sent to protect her. One of them is about to fail ... He spent centuries in the dark ... After 300 years spent in the underworld as a punishment, warrior Devon is called on by the gods for a chance to fix his mistake--and to win his redemption. But there's a catch: the gods won't tell him details about his mission. He's supposed to suffer while trying to figure out what he did wrong in the past, and fix it in the present. All Kenna ever wanted was to be the owner of her own life and destiny. But for now all she can do is run away from the evil wanting to claim her powers. ... until she came ... When Devon becomes unintentionally entangled in his new neighbor's life, he can't help but feel he's closer to his purpose. Every moment he spends with Kenna makes him confused, and every time he touches her, glimpses of the past, of his failed mission, come back to haunt him. ... and showed him the light. Darkness is closing in, and with Kenna's help, Devon needs to put the pieces of the puzzle together before he fails his mission again and evil consumes the world. Only this time, he's sure he won't be the only one damned.

“We are most courageous at our weakest; when we believe we have faced what we fear the most and have nothing more to lose.”

Set against the backdrop of two warring towns, Oby Aligwekwe’s Young Adult debut—told from the viewpoint of her main character—is inspired by her West African heritage, fables, and spiritual beliefs. Ona’s journey reveals the power of choice, the true source of happiness, and, most importantly, the transformation one must go through to realize and eventually occupy their purpose.

At the sudden death of her grandfather, Ona’s pain transports her to mystical Luenah—a place of infinite possibilities, free of turf wars and other ills that plague the earthly dimension she lives in. In Luenah, where her grandfather awaits her, Ona learns she is an Eri, one bestowed with unique intuitive and spiritual gifts passed down from generation-to-generation.

On her eighteenth birthday, she returns to Luenah and is handed a box to deposit her ‘exchange’ for love and happiness—her greatest desires. Burdened by her quest, Ona crosses paths with danger and heartbreak as the two men that love her dearly are viciously pitted against each other. As evil looms, she learns that dreams carry a hefty price, and no one is who they seem. Now, she must unmask the villain and save the one she loves, even at the risk of losing everything she holds dear.
