Circus of Scales-a dragon sanctum novella
word count: 24k/24k
The truest friend Ivy's ever known is a white scaled dragon named Celestia. Together they perform and travel with the famous Circus of Scales. People from all over the Emerald Continent have witnessed the pair's death defying act.
With the threat of dragon hunters lurking in every town, Ivy knows the circus is the safest place for her beloved dragon. Still, Ivy wishes she could give Celestia the freedom a magnificent creature deserves - instead of having to endure the cruel harvesting of her magic as well as other abuses at the hands of the circus ringmaster.
When Celestia is kidnapped, Ivy risks all she has to bring her dragon back. But the farther she gets from the circus, the more she realizes her captors are not who they appear to be, and the harder it is to see where the true danger lies.

To Be Announced
Faleen Osprey was born on the wrong side of the boundary. Not only does she stick out with her larger dress size, few people in her pious village understand the depths of her mysterious gifts. Not only is she a Siphon, able to extract healing essence from gemstones, but she's also sensitive to the emotions and intentions of those she comes in contact with.
Faleen keeps her secrets and plans to marry her late sister's fiance in her place, until signs she can no longer ignore predict a sinister blight. When the dark illness ensnares her little brother, she feels she has no choice but to go against everyone's cautions and crosses the boundary into a land where her size is appreciated, and magic is not only tolerated, it is honored.
But that honor comes with a high price, and Faleen will have to stretch herself to the brink of destruction if she is going to gain the knowledge she needs to save her home... if it's not already too late.
