Lyman Rate is an avid reader of military history as well as fantasy and science fiction. When not working or writing, he is reading and if not doing those, is usually spending time with his wife and two dogs. Lyman is married to his long-time girlfriend and with his dogs, Joplin and Zeus, has called Kansas home for most of his life.
In his free time, he likes to take nature walks and practice photography. His writing career started about four years ago when he was challenged by his wife (at the time girlfriend) to see if he could write a novel. Thinking this was a daunting task, he accepted the challenge and wrote his first book. Since then he now has two published books with a third being published.
Lyman is grateful to have the ability to write and truly hopes that those who read his books will enjoy them as much as he enjoyed writing them. Living in Kansas for the largest portion of his life has taught him that life is like a storm: It can be calm, but when that storm hits and everything is crazy, you hang on and the calm will return.
Lyman’s first book with Shadoe Publishing will be a fantasy fiction novel called:

Alex Spear loves traveling the world listening for stories. Born in London, she now lives with her wife and by the sea. Many, many decades have passed since Alex was at school but she still gets told off for being easily distracted. She will typically be writing two novels, a blog and a TV script all at once while reading half a dozen novels (none from beginning to end) while talking to good friends online, on the phone, and to her cat. Alex says, “I am passionate about women and my mission is to tell our stories. The power of female relationships, from friendships to love affairs and everything in between, is the true history of the world. I want women to enjoy themselves more, and to look after themselves at least as well as they do everyone else.”

Welcome to Paris, “The City of Lights”—where the only requirement to visit is being “Undead.”
Struggling with a past tragedy and growing unrest with my sister, I accepted an invitation to visit my very close friends in Paris.
My early morning flight had just arrived in Paris. As I made my way through the busy concourse, timed seemed to stop. All my mind could register were the three friends standing in front of me. Janine and her two Brother’s, Luc and Jaycee.
Meanwhile, back in the States my sister Elena had taken great joy in antagonizing me. Elena’s jealousy would come to be the driving force that would lead to the culmination of a showdown that will resolve a past injustice and ultimately lead to the destruction of our relationship, and a much darker, sinister means to an end.
Would the love that Luc and I came to share, along with Janine and Jaycee be enough to overcome the deceit, treachery and betrayal we would encounter? Would the secret my friends have destroy me or renew me?
Little did I know, they would literally hold my soul in their hands.

We have acquired the NEW BEGINNINGS series from Kaden Shay! The first of the six novels will be out shortly and here is a bit of a tease from the first novel HER CALLING:
In a world on the verge of being told that everything they once thought was merely myth, is real, can one teenage girl cope with life changes she never saw coming?
Seventeen year old Kyndle Callahan began her year as a typical high school senior. Well, as typical as a girl can be while living life as a werewolf. She wasn’t bitten or scratched as most people believe all werewolves are made, no, she was born into the pack that’s always been her extended family. She’s never seen the people she grew up with as the monsters of myth and legend but everything in her life is thrown into a tailspin when her father springs some shocking news on her. Suddenly, reality as a werewolf is much scarier than the stories humans tell. Stunned by the prospect of spending her life bonded to someone she can’t even stand sharing the same space with and devastated at the thought of losing the only love she’s ever known, can Kyndle settle into who and what she is in time to set things right? Can the girl that grew up knowing only pack law stand up, embrace her true calling, and become the woman she was meant to be despite going against everything her family believes?
With the help of her best friend Abbey, Kyndle must navigate a confusing world of wolf culture, teenage drama, and coming out in a group that believes her lifestyle is unnatural. Follow her journey through pain, heartache, several states, and the fight to be with the girl she loves and take her place in the world.
