Glamour & Shadows
Glamour & Shadows Book 1
by Robert Hazelton
Genre: Urban Fantasy
260 pages

From the Author of Drown the Heart and Creative Spark, this is where the Society stories all begin with a dimming of the lights.

Monsters Exist

Only the Society keeps humanity blissfully ignorant of the dangers that lurk within every shadow.

Incubus Detective Algiers Stanton and his fairy partner Ophelia Dupre have been working together for quite a while. One serious, one not so much, they make a perfect team; complementing each other even as one grates on the other's nerves.

When they're called upon to investigate a grisly murder thought to be committed by a shapeshifter, it looks like a routine case of clean & close, everyone happy. But the complications of a millennia old organization refuse to go quietly under the rug and when the past rises up to shake the very pillars of the Society, the two detective's lives may change forever in the process.

The shadows await!

Nightlife Interrupted
Glamour & Shadows Book 2
221 pages

From the Author of Glamour & Shadows, Drown the Heart and Creative Spark comes a vampire story with heart, soul and a twenty-sided die.

Roll for Initiative

Vinny Presaro has it made. A newly created vampire, he owns the hottest game store in town, wiling away his nights with role playing and graphic novels. His life would be idyllic if not for his terrible luck with romance and the vivid, disturbing dreams he has every couple weeks. They seemed like mere fantasy so he did his best to write them off (the dreams, sure but also the chances of being near a woman without her nervously eyeing the door).

His latest nightmare came in the form of an apocalyptic scene complete with rivers of blood, pieces of people and a demonic girl dancing amongst the carnage. When she comes walking into the store, he’s faced with the possibility that he could be having premonitions and not a chemical reaction to bottled blood.

Vinny reaches out to investigator Ophelia Dupre to help him understand his revelation. Unfortunately, she has some trouble with Vampires so their working relationship is strained to say the least. Armed with pop culture references, preconceived notions and a couple big guns, these two very well may be the only thing standing between the world and the end of days.

We might be in trouble

The Hermes Foundation
Glamour & Shadows Book 3
258 pages

From the Author of Glamour & Shadows and Nightlife Interrupted comes the third book set in the world of the Society. 

Magic is Real

Lillian Bowan has seen a lot. A former war correspondent turned struggling journalist, she has been searching for the one story which will satisfy her ambition, to be part of something meaningful. When she rushed down for a coveted TV spot covering a gas main explosion, she never dreamed it would put her on a dangerous path of discovery.

Nicolas Chabrier lives in a world of demons and mysticism, where vampires are real and shape shifters stalk the night. An independent wizard trained by an esoteric group outside the bounds of reality, he tries to keep a low profile out of the supernatural spotlight. When he saves Lillian from a demonic incursion and tries to erase her memory, he finds something far more insidious than a random invasion.

But not always wondrous

The Midnight Turn
Glamour & Shadows Book 4
202 pages

Hollywood beckons!

Genevieve St. Claire’s novel The Midnight Turn became a big hit when it was initially released. Her meteoric ride to genre fame brought her to various conventions, talk shows and workshops across the country. When a movie producer decides to option the book for a big budget movie, her head spins with the possibilities, especially since she can’t claim the rights to her first book, a well-known horror novel published in 1818…

Gen’s second dive into literature was inspired by her vampire creator, Christian Lark, an unpredictable and romantic figure she’s polished into something a modern audience can tolerate. Enter the proposed leading man, Jacob Moran, wizard and descendant of the Lark line. His semblance is uncanny, his youth intoxicating but there’s also Allan Taylor, the handsome screenwriter hired to adapt the book.

With half a dozen lives intermingling amidst the chaos of film production, The Midnight Turn explores a human experience through the eyes of the supernatural. 

Enjoy the show!

Dark Side of the Vale
Glamour & Shadows Book 5
295 pages

A Messy Crime

A seemingly normal family is murdered, their home turned into a horrifying scene of torture and chaos. Their deaths follow a pattern, an extreme version of three serial killers terrorizing the country. The Society steps in to explore any supernatural angle the case may present and begin to work with Special Agent Rebecca Marsh of a newly formed FBI group code named The Park. Versed in all manner of paranormal creatures, she is to act as an ambassador to ensure humans and monsters can work together.

Such a dramatic change comes as quite the shock to Incubus detective Algiers Stanton and his fairy partner Ophelia Dupre. They land the case and the task of playing politics with their new human colleague. After spending years ensuring humans never learn about them, this goes against everything they know but they’ll need all the help they can get to stop the murderers before they strike again. For these fiends are not merely ending lives, they are collecting ingredients for a sinister plan, one which may destroy the world as we know it.

The Detectives Have Returned

Fairy Tale Ending
Glamour & Shadows Book 6
214 pages

Desperation Breeds Obedience

Renard Martin lives a simple life. As a hitman for a Society bigwig, he takes on targets the former Cleaners used to handle. As a graduate of the infamous Lark sanctum, he’s a dangerous and irreverent person who has no desire to remain beholden to anyone. After his family was brutally murdered, he thought he lost them all but then he heard a rumor. His sister Victoria may still be alive and the vampire Marius Sontag promised to help him find her…for the price of becoming an assassin.

Belia Dellacroix never got to live for herself. The ward of an ancient vampire, every event of her existence has been carefully planned, governed and censored. This has not left her without guile, however and once she discovered the grim fate her guardian had in store for her, she took drastic action. Stepping out means incredible risk and so she turns to the only person she can in her carefully designed world: a certain Society hitman looking for something dear to him.

But will Renard prove too unpredictable and harsh for her needs? Holding leverage over his head might well be the most dangerous thing she’s ever done but desperate times call for desperate measures. Without him, she’ll be an unwilling sacrifice, killed for a chance to claim ancient power but if she can keep her protector on track and under control, she may just get the fairy tale ending she’s always hoped for. 

The Lark Legacy
A Prequel to The Hermes Foundation
Glamour & Shadows Book 7

Without Direction

Ruby Lark comes from a long line of curious and reckless wizards. Her father, Henry Lark, runs a strict sanctum where students are taught through a brutal curriculum of harsh consequences and cruelty. He seems to have some nebulous purpose for her in mind but his dispassion and formality have kept them apart, master and student instead of parent and child. With no friends, no recourse and no sanctuary, she steeled herself for a life of service to a cause she would probably never understand.

Mortimer Dampton started at the Lark Sanctum at the end of his education. A brash, charming wizard, he comes with a wealth of necromantic knowledge. Henry assigns him to partner with Ruby, who instantly takes a dislike to his overly familiar, roguish personality. But he may just hold the key to her salvation, even as he begins to defy the edicts of her father, sending them both on a course to their fates.

Without Limits

Robert Hazelton has been writing short fiction, novels and music his entire life. As the founding member of Deadly Nightshade Botanical Society and a long time member of the band Abney Park, he has traveled extensively and performed countless shows in exotic locales. 

Robert writes in a variety of genres but keeps drifting back to modern fantasy/horror. He considers Elizabeth Moon, Frank Herbert, and Steven Pressfield to be his biggest influences.

Michael Meyer is the author of mysteries, thrillers, humorous fiction, and non-fiction: Love and romance, laughter and tears, thrills and fears. 

He has resided in and has visited many places in the world, all of which have contributed in some way to his own published writing. He has literally traveled throughout the world, on numerous occasions. He has lived in Finland, Germany, Thailand, Saudi Arabia (where COVERT DREAMS - INTERNATIONAL SUSPENSE COLLECTION BOOK ONE - is set), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (where DEADLY EYES - INTERNATIONAL SUSPENSE COLLECTION BOOK TWO - is set). He gained the wanderlust to see the world, to experience other cultures, at an early age, and this desire has never left him. If anything, it has only gained in intensity as he has aged. 

Among the many unique things that have happened to him in his world travels, he has walked the streets of Istanbul with a detective, searching for a pickpocket who got him good. He has ridden on the back of a motorcycle in Tehran while the driver, who spoke not one word of English, pointed out all the sights to him. He has wrestled an Iranian soldier who tried to break into his hotel room in Tehran. He has had the paint completely stripped from his car as he drove across Saudi Arabia in a sandstorm. He has stood on the stage of a busy nightclub in Tokyo, singing "She'll be Coming Round the Mountain When She Comes" to an audience feeling no pain from the Sake they were drinking. He has been chased by a family of mongooses (yes, that is the correct spelling) on the idyllic Caribbean island of St. Croix. And that is just the beginning of his long list of worldly adventures.

As a recent retiree from a forty-year career as a professor of writing, he now lives in Southern California wine country with his wife, Kitty, and their two adorable rescue cats.

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever...

When the immortal Pietas is marooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he knows it could be worse. He could be alone. But that's the problem. He's not.

Half a million of his people sleep in cryostasis, trapped inside their pods and it's up to Pietas to free them. He can't release one at a time. It's all or nothing. He's facing over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless immortals who will call on him for rescue and he has no way to answer.

It's not all bad. The beautiful telepathic warrior he's loved for lifetimes is at his side. He's bonded with a sentient panther. He hates humans but the one dumped on this planet with him has become a trusted friend.

Before Pietas can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he's fought for centuries. His brutal, merciless father.

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever...


Contains humor, sweet romance, betrayal, angst, vengeance... and a ginormous, sentient black panther who wants to be Pietas's "kitty."

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home.

She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it's hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories.

From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things.
No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She's been married so long she's tenured.
