Our countdown to the winter solstice continues!
Around this time of the year comes a number of important religious celebrations around the world. To celebrate, we’ve brought together quite a few amazing independent authors and artists for an advent calendar of blog posts.
Each of them will write a short piece or create something related to the celebration closest to their heart.
Yesterday’s story was La Bafana, by Derek Newman-Stille.
Make sure to come back tomorrow to see the next installment in the series, by Jennifer Carole Lewis!
by Caroline Frechette
Book 4 in the Family by Choice series
It’s been five years. Five years since GenEx. Five years since the world was completely changed. And now Alex feels responsible for integrating extrahumans with the “normals.” He must also take care of the gravely-ill Mister Lupino. When his son, Nicholas, suddenly reappears in his life under tragic circumstances, Alex doesn’t know if he can take it. Maybe that’s why he starts seeing people that aren’t there, and hearing sobs in the night. Maybe it’s all of the stress. Or, maybe, it’s something else.
Please join us for the launch of Kindred Spirits, the third novel in the Family by Choice series, by Caroline Frechette!

I have to, Jimmy. You don’t understand. It’s about the fate of the world. It’s pretty important.
by Caroline Frechette
It’s been over a year since the events of Brothers In Arms. Alex and his super-powered friends knew that GenEx wasn’t really gone, but they’ve been living peacefully since escaping them, and haven’t given it much thought. Now, not only is GenEx back, but Alex and his friends receive a message from the future telling them that much more may be at stake than their own lives. Are super-powers really enough for someone to save the world?
Kindred Spirits is book 3 in the Family by Choice series.

Renaissance Press’s very first series of novels is Family By Choice, by Caroline Fréchette. They feature the adventures of Alex Winters, a young mafioso with the ability to create and manipulate fire. The books can be read independently, but it is best to read them in order.
The series is paranormal/dark urban fantasy, with elements of horror and suspense.
