The Lantern Menace

Princess Castria is a hurricane in a tiara that pushes her royal powers (and her best friend Finch Balfour’s nerves) to their absolute limits with her pranks. But when she steals a dusty old lantern belonging to a one-eyed wizard, not only has she put the kingdom of Fanthia at risk, there’s a distinct possibility that the Wold itself might be in danger…

Castria has no idea that the lantern contains the incarcerated soul of D’Monica Grace: the witch single-handedly responsible for the darkest period in the Wold’s history – and now it has fallen into Fanthia’s most hated enemies’ hands, with plans to reconstitute the ultimate evil into flesh, blood and bone once more.

Along with Fanthia’s resident spell-crafter, Rufus Lightfoot, the troublesome princess (with Finch swept up in her wake) must set forth on a race against time to retrieve the lantern before D’Monica’s soul is reborn and the Wold is plunged into despair. It’s going to be an impossible journey with danger and betrayal at every turn, and many factions conspiring against Finch and Castria, determined to see them fail…

The Forgotten Gods Counseling Group
By. L.D. Hutchinson

Aetina is the Greek Goddess of War, Darkness and Hate. She's the Daughter of Zeus and Nyx, the only problem is she was never included as one of the worshipped Gods. Not even among the minor ones. She was all but forgotten like many others that she has met over the course of the last three hundred and fifty years.
After talking to Sjorn, the Norse God of Pain and Fertility, she's finally talked into going to the New York offices of Mental Health where she meets Chi, the Chinese Goddess of Wisdom, another of the forgotten Gods.
Chi tells her of the Forgotten Gods Counseling Group and that many of them attend and join in. The number alone surprises Aetina and gives her the push she has needed to finally say that she'll gladly be a part of the group and see if it can help her.
Things almost instantly get a little weird though; Zeus and Nyx start fighting and try to get her to take sides. Aphrodite wants her head on a platter and the Demi Gods are showing up everywhere.
But, even that's only the tip of the iceberg. Ichi, a Japanese God, has decided to create havoc amongst the humans for forgetting him.
Now the God's are coming out to help and trying to stop the madness before it's too late.
If only Aetina could just get one day of peace…

L. D. Hutchinson was born and raised in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. She's been writing since she was able to hold a pencil in her hands and form words and drawing since about the same time. Her love for reading books came when she was about eight years old and she picked up her first book. A Novel titled 'Hawkson' that's gone down as one of her favorite stories. Though she reads books such and Sherrilyn Kenoyon's Dark Hunter's series, Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series (Which she is a huge fan of.) P.C. and Kristin Cast's House of Night and many more. 
Most of her books have been influenced from the many things she's read and watched over the years. Her favorite thing to do other than write and draw and even design her own book covers as well as other's is sit down and veg out to play some video games. It's one of her favorite passion's she'd never give up.
You can catch her with her nose pressed up in the newest comic or manga she finds or a good novel if not there then on Photoshop, or playing videogame and trying to beat top scores again.
Due to that she was published with Midnight Hour Publishing where she publishes all her works into the world. May they be YA, Adult or anything in between!

Above His Station

As the new guard at Regal Street Underground station takes his post, he is unaware that something extraordinary has affected the entire population of London.

Isolated on the station platform with no other person in sight, the guard is completely cut-off from the world above…until a foul-mouthed talking rat informs him that he is probably better off where he is, as chaos has broken loose on the streets. And that’s not the only thing that’s loose, as the station guard realises when he is attacked by an escaped tiger roaming the Underground, devouring any prey that it comes across.

Fleeing for his life, the guard picks up the rat and they eventually make their way up to ground level to find the answers to what catastrophe has befallen London, as well as what they can do (if anything) to help put it right.

What they find is not at all what they expected.

And its impact is felt far beyond the limits of the capital.

In their quest for the truth, the guard and his rodent companion cross paths with a pack of deadly wolves, car-driving flamingos, anteater policemen and gorilla bodyguards before their search takes them for an audience with the king of all beasts, and a journey that will transport them to the farthest side of the galaxy with the fate of humankind hanging in the balance…

EXPLICIT CONTENT: This book is unsuitable for anyone under 13 due to some very rude words.


Before His Time

The eagerly awaited sequel to ‘ABOVE HIS STATION’…

The rat is back!
And so is the Station Guard in a pulse-pounding, consciousness-expanding, mind-bending, side-splitting adventure even more absurd that the last!!!


‘BEFORE HIS TIME’ is more whacked out hilarity with a dollop of science fiction from the author of ‘The CORNELIUS QUAINT CHRONICLES’ and ‘The LANTERN MENACE’. Recommended only for readers of discerning tastes who enjoy laughing out loud in public places.

EXPLICIT CONTENT: Not suitable for Under 13’s as this book contains bad language and graphic descriptions of rodent intercourse.
