New Christian Fantasy Novel Inspired by Marvel Cinematic Universe
If you like Marvel Super hero movies, you may want to grab yourself a copy of Author Regina Curry’s Marked: The Beginning of the End under the pseudonym, Sarah Benjamin. Marked is the first installment of the Marked trilogy – a Christian novel that follows the life of Jonathan Peterson.
Jonathan Peterson believes he’s old enough to make his own choices, but quickly realizes he’s not mature enough to accept the consequences of those choices. When expelled from his prestigious private Christian academy and enrolled in public high school, his true identity is revealed and a supernatural assignment follows. It all begins with a dream that introduces him to a fantastical kingdom, and the forgotten oath taken several years before, at a special altar in his late grandfather’s church.
Marked: The Beginning of the End has been categorized as Christian fantasy in the publishing world – a genre attributed to authors such as C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. “These are not Christian novels at all.”
“My story won’t fit comfortably in any genre,” Regina says. “Marked is the precedent of a new genre, a genre that introduces the remnant of God and their works in the end of the ages,” which according to Regina, is swiftly approaching. MARKED: THE BEGINNING OF THE END is available now at http://www.pearlppd.com or on Amazon.
ABOUT REGINA CURRY: Regina Curry is an author, producer, and CEO of Pearl Productions, Publishing, and Distribution. The Washingtonian mother of two is a Christian-based author who began her company for herself and other Christian artists to share their work. Through music, novels, television programming, and film, Regina will not only tell her stories but provide avenues for other great stories, as well. www.pearlppd.com

Stepping into The Red Lair was like a dream come true. My blindness didn’t bother the staff, and I felt accepted. When his presence behind me became a distraction, I knew things were about to change. His dominance was powerful, and everything that I wanted, everything that I craved, was within reach. After two years, would I be able to explore this lifestyle or would my wanting to stay with Carter ruin that for me?
After feeling lost for so many years, The Red Lair opened its doors to greet me. It was a welcoming environment, a place where I could be myself, free of judgment and humiliation. What I wanted to do was mark a girl’s ass, dominate and fuck her, and then move on. However, when I felt the heat of her body, I knew she’d be the only girl my hands would linger on. Though I wanted her, could I disappoint myfamily to pursue this part of myself that I’ve longed for?

Tales of Ferrês
Legendary Tales Book 1
Since the beginning of time, one kingdom in the world of Tarzinëa has remained a mystery. Very few have entered its depths and survived. Walk alongside our heroes and watch their tales unfold as they enter the Forest of Ferrês. Discover everything from wolves so large they look like full grown ponies, to devil creatures that lurk in the night. Expect the unexpected as you venture into the magical land of Ferrês where not everything is as it seems.
Jerked back to reality, a wide-eyed and gaping Karigan followed as trees parted to reveal a path covered by undisturbed dirt littered with fallen leaves. She hesitated, knowing the path led deeper into the forest. Ralph said no one ever comes out once they go in. But what if the forest draws you in? What happens then? Curiosity won as Karigan stepped forward, taking the path deeper into the Forest of Ferrês. All Karigan knew was that a mystery awaited her, and something told her it was best to keep moving.
Moments of wonder swiftly turned into regret as the trees grew larger and the fairy’s glow fought to keep the darkness away. “Excuse me, Alia, but where are we going?” The light swayed as Alia hovered to a stop beneath a large archway. Karigan stepped closer, eyeing the darkness within and looking over her shoulder as little Alia sat down on a nearby stump.
“Go inside,” Alia said.
“But it’s so dark.”
Giggles rang out as Alia swooped into the air, circling about her and creating particles of dust. “Do not fear, for in darkness is light. Go inside.” The little fairy shoved her back forcefully, making Karigan stumble forward through the archway.
Nothing. All she could see was nothing. Where is the damn light! Panic gripped her. Calm, yourself, Karigan. It won’t do to lose your head. Just breathe and try to relax. Fairies are supposed to be good, trustworthy. Oh…by the gods, the damn fairy is trying to kill me!
Her eyes flew open, and her breathing grew frantic as fear pressed in on her lungs.
“What was that?” She turned around. To her dismay, the exit had disappeared. “How the hell?”
I’m going to die! She faltered, stumbling over a branch. Karigan hit the ground hard, knocking the wind out of herself. Fear consumed her.
Jumping to her hands and knees, Karigan’s eyes locked on the nearby trees. Slowly, her eyes adjusted as she watched, and waited. Silence weighed on her until a rabbit crashed through the brush beneath a nearby tree. “Oh, thank the stars…it’s just a rabbit.”

Buddy the Blue Corgi is here to help children through the tough times they encounter in life — from feeling like they don’t belong to dealing with bullies. Buddy’s stories offer your children an uplifting message and an easy-to-understand Bible scripture to show them God is always with them.
We read both books to my nephew and baby niece. Each had its own cute story. We loved reading and talking about Buddy, his mom and friends. The little life lessons were relatable and realistic. They were easily understood by my nephew. He loved looking at the pictures on each page. The details of the graphics were wonderfully done. There is also a biblical verse at the end of the books. Overall a wonderfully illustrated book for children. We can’t wait to read about more of Buddy’s stories.
I can’t be held accountable for the mistakes of my father, that wouldn’t be fair. But after his passing, demons of his past come to the surface to seek me out.
Nikolai King doesn’t care about what I think is right and wrong. Unfair, fair it’s all the same in his book. With only a few words, he’s taken away my everything and shaken it until all that floats around me are fiery ruins.
I loathe him. And I won’t be afraid to show it. While his sinister smirk may charm everyone else, I’m determined to hold my resolve. I see the way his eyes linger on me, like a lion licking his lips, that’ll be his downfall. I will use his greatest desires against him until he crumbles.
He will not break me down. He will not take away my fight. By the time he’s through with me, I’ll have him begging for my forgiveness.
I will not show weakness.
I will stand tall.
I will not show mercy.
