The Dragons' Beads: A Treasury (Createspace paperback)
Amazon

Edited by Teresa Garcia
This first volume of what is hoped to be a multi volume project highlights essays, art, poetry, and short stories featuring and/or about dragons. Originally it was supposed to be a contest to highlight the best dragon stories and poems from young authors. The project had to be adjusted due to a lack of submissions (likely because this is a young and little known publisher). Perhaps future volumes will be able to have more competition, and it is hoped that in the future THG StarDragon Publishing will be able to afford having cash prizes to fuel writer’s interest in exchange for featuring the “beads” of their stories.

Dragon Shaman series

A brief note about the Dragon Shaman titles. The titles are intended to be Dragon Shaman Book # as the main title and then followed by the subtitle. Dragon Shaman is not just the series name.

Dragon Shaman Book One: Taming the Blowing Wind (Lulu Edition)

Createspace Paperback edition with new cover!

Every girl yearns for adventure, romance and magic in their lives. BlowingWind had all of these and lost them, just as she was starting on what she thought would be the greatest adventure of her life. Now, she is being called out by the forces of life and undertaking the journey into adulthood alone. However, journeys always seem to entail healing, and a quest to find her lost love turns into something even greater. Take Ryu is a boisterous magma ryugami trapped for five years beneath Mt. Fuji for the crime of becoming too engrossed in human affairs. Upon the end of his imprisonment he emerges to find a strange and undefended shaman woman within his territory. Falling prey once more to his kind heart he too is swept up in the threads of a destiny that neither human nor dragon could have ever believed.

Dragon Shaman Book Two: The Smoky Mirror (Lulu Edition)

Dragon Shaman Book Two: The Smoky Mirror (CreateSpace Edition) - $10.99US

BlowingWind and Ryu expected to be able to get on with living, but Fate has a different idea for the young Shaman in training and her Dragon Protector. A Kitsune and two Tengu are responsible for tests of her character, and her most prized tool is stolen from her. The pair must travel worlds and even time in this quest, and interesting facts about the O'Drake curse are revealed. The question is if she will remember them, and if she can regain what was lost.



Selkies' Skins series

Selkies' Skins: Castle and Well (SS#1)
Amazon $15
Lulu (hardcover) $45

We come then to modern times. First a fishing family, favored then by fortune and Marsali’s magic, the Makay clan grew to a merchant family that went on grand voyages for the good of the Magical Community. Few now remain, and those are now waterwitches, primarily interested in tending duties set by deities that few believe actually exist, hiding in plain sight, dealing with ancient rivalries, and the health of the waters both locally and planet wide.

Kirsty has little choice in her fate, only how it will manifest. There are tests to pass in order to prove her worth and determine which of the many deities can lay claims on her, a place that she may have to occupy prematurely if her visions prove true, and a need to earn her sealskin to be complete. Will Etain return safe to port, and will Kirsty survive her training and test? There are complications along the way regarding deities themselves, will she be able to stay on the course she's trying to set? In this first book of what is intended to be a trilogy Kirsty must ultimately go down the Lady's well for the first of her tests of fitness, while also having to balance lessons at her family’s traditional school, family, and a certain young lad. Perhaps, ultimately, the future Selkie Priestess and one of the Hounds of Herne can be the ones to finally untie the knot trapping Marsali and heal the Water Deities.

Half witch and half selkie, Kirstin Makay grew up always knowing that she never fit fully into any world, whether among the selkies, the Cowans, or those of the Magical World. Like her parents it would be her duty to walk between the worlds at the bidding of her family's deities despite her wishes to focus on the art of potions. Now she begins the path to earn her own sealskin as has been done by many – but not all – of her forebears. There is more complicating her path though, and with her mother gone nightmares threaten her grip on sanity during training for the first of her tests.

Kirsty's ultimate goal is to gain her own sealskin, become whole, and still be able to follow the path of potion making. First she has to get through school and internalize the lessons of Castle Carrick and the Lady's Well.

For additional side stories, please look for the Selkies’ Skins Wavelets stories.

Call of the Kami (Lulu Edition)

Call of the Kami (Createspace paperback) $7.99US

Magic is that breath never quite caught, Flowing always just behind the scenes, And only glimpsed when sought. The spirits of the past and present call out to those with the ears to hear. The worlds of the Kami and Mankind are not far apart, and perhaps the border is only in the mind. Primarily this was intended to be a collection of poetry inspired by and retelling some stories from Japanese Mythology and feeling the path of Shinto generated while working on my first novel. However, it has become much more. Meditate upon the poems and a flower unfolds slowly before your eyes, allowing a glimpse into a world unseen.

This is year one of the project that started on Patreon, and incorporated Maria Lightwatch, a character of Teresa Garcia's that never got to see a great deal of use in the real she was created for, as the figurehead.
