Nothing is as it seems in Worlds Between. There are places where hunger can't be contained and telepathy is possible, where the afterlife brings about more adventure than the living can handle, and sometimes employers might just bite.

Worlds Between features six novels from bestselling authors. Dive into these paranormal worlds that will have you reaching for the safety of your covers and reading well into the night. Check out more about the included stories below: 


Wicked Hunger by DelSheree Gladden


Born with an insatiable hunger for pain and suffering, Vanessa and Zander Roth struggle to hide the truth of who they really are. Keeping their secrets becomes even harder when Ivy Guerra arrives and stirs their hunger into a frenzy. Will their need to feed on others’ agony turn them into villains, or can they somehow find a way to become the heroes of their own dark story?


Haunting Zoe by Sherry D. Ficklin


Logan woke up with a big problem. He’s extremely dead. No one from his former life seems able to see or hear him, making his afterlife little more than a nightmare. That is, until his funeral, when the bitterly sarcastic Zoe, a friend from his childhood, calls him out at his own wake. Now his only chance at moving on means dealing with his sordid past—and the girl he never really got over.


The Mind's Eye by K.C. Finn


A girl with a telepathic gift finds a boy clinging to his last hope during the war-torn climate of 1940s Europe. Kit Cavendish has psychic powers that allow her mind to travel to places her disabled body cannot follow, so when war breaks out across Europe, curiosity gets the better of her. The Mind's Eye is a story of personal triumph and young love set against the harsh realities of life at war.


Reluctant Guardian by Melissa J. Cunningham


She's dead, and would give anything to have her life back. He's alive, but demons conspire against him. Can two lost souls save each other from destiny? Death is nothing like Alisa thought it would be. Rather than peaceful rest, she must become a guardian to Brecken, a dark and dangerous rebel, who hides a terrible secret. When feelings develop between them, everything spins out of control.


Kindling Flames by Julie Wetzel


Fresh from college and with no real work experience, Victoria Westernly considers herself lucky to land the coveted position of personal assistant to Darien Ritter, the CEO and owner of a multibillion-dollar company. His busy schedule and eccentric ways are enough to keep her on her toes. But, all is not what it seems when she discovers the handsome man employing her just happens to be the most powerful vampire in the area. 


And sneak peeks from Aftermath by Sandy Goldsworthy, Hidden Monster by Amanda Strong, The Awakener by Amanda Strong, The Eye of Tanub by M.E. Cunningham, Angus MacBain by Angela J. Townsend and River of Bones by Angela J. Towsend.

While fairytales are few and far away, Worlds Entwined will be sure to keep your blood pumping and your heart fluttering through to the very last page. 

Worlds Entwined features five novels from bestselling authors. Dive into these romantic and light fantasy worlds that show love is cruel, painful, sweet, wonderful and inspiring. Worlds Entwined is sure to keep you reading well into the night. Check out more about the included stories below:

Rema's an ordinary girl with an extraordinary past… All she wants is to be free. But it comes at a price. She is forced to accept the proposal of a cruel prince, even though she loves another… his brother. 

Rumors by Erica Kiefer 

Seventeen-year-old Allie Collins would rather hide behind rumors than face the truth—her life will never be the same as it was before the accident. As a star athlete grieving in the shadows, she hopes to find normalcy in boys and basketball. When her best friend sets her up with the popular Shane Moretti, Allie drags her feet, reluctant for added complications. Then she decides that dating Shane would be the perfect shield from last summer’s tragedy. However, what starts as a mere distraction proves much more complex. As Shane leads Allie into questionable situations, gossip continues to swirl. 

Never Forgotten by Kelly Risser 

Life tasks a drastic turn for Meara Quinn. Her mom’s cancer returned, and they are moving to her mom’s childhood home in Peggy’s Cove. Meara has never met her grandparents and doesn’t know much about her mom’s childhood. Dreams of her dad help her realize that all is not as it seems. With her new boyfriend, Evan, and his sister, Katie, she embarks on a journey to discover who—or what—she is. 

Rising by Holly Kelly 

Sara is a criminal with a death sentence hanging over her head, who is being stalked by the deadliest assassin in the sea—only she doesn’t know it. Xanthus’s job is simple. All he has to do is break into her apartment and slit her throat. If only she weren’t so beautiful… so innocent. Will he do his duty and slay her, or will the executioner become the protector, and the hunter become the hunted? 

Finding Willow by Michelle Pickett 

Finding Willow is the prequel to Unspeakable, which will be releasing in 2015. This touching romance between Brody and Willow explores one girl’s quiet strength to survive the unbearable weight of a family secret alone, and the love and resolve of a boy determined to help her. 

And sneak peeks from Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin, Sweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez, and Moonflower by Angela J. Townsend.



It’s a fight for life in Worlds Undone. The only way to live through these post-apocalyptic times is to stand up against authority, hone in on special gifts, and learn to control the elements. In these stories of survival against all odds, heroes will rise and the evil ones will fall; and amidst the darkness, they might just find hope and love.

Worlds Undone features five novels from bestselling authors. Dive into these dystopian and apocalyptic worlds that will keep you rooting for hope and reading well into the night. Check out more about the included stories below:


The Woodlands by Lauren Nicolle Taylor


In Russia, after a race war has decimated the planet, the Superiors who control the compounds of the Woodlands are obsessed with creating a ‘raceless’ race, convinced it is the only way to avoid war. Collecting troublemakers for use in their high-tech breeding program, they should have lifted the claw when it passed over sixteen-year-old Rosa’s head. She is strong. She is loved. She will fight.


Project ELE by Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels


With millions dying each day from a brutal heat wave, fifteen-year-old Willow relocates to a government shelter—where chaos, romance, and strange new powers await her. A must-read doomsday saga with nearly 100 five-star Amazon reviews! 


Concealed in the Shadows by Gabrielle Arrowsmith


Sydney will escape with her sister if they’re denied the right to be together. Chip implants, the electric barrier, and the interest of two opposing forces amplify the danger. Can she trust the side she fights for? Can she receive unexpected love? When her sister's life is jeopardized, she’ll have to weigh new love against the only one she has known. The cost could be deadly. How will she choose?


The Bionics by Alicia Michaels


All I wanted was to be a normal girl. But the nuclear war that laid waste to our country killed any hope I had. They took everything, including my humanity. I’m now half-human, half-machine, part of the freak show that is the Restoration Project. They hate what they created, fearing us for being strong. What they don’t know is—there’s a Resistance and The Bionics aren’t going down without a fight.


Wind Warrior by Jon Messenger


Xander’s simple life is turned upside down when he discovers he’s the newest Wind Warrior, a race of supernatural men and women who control the air. However, they’re not alone and as their time comes to an end, the Fire Warriors grow more and more eager to claim the planet as their own.

My Awesome Publisher!

CLEAN TEEN PUBLISHING
A New Kind of Publishing

Clean Teen Publishing is a new Indie publishing company that publishes Young Adult and New Adult fiction. Clean Teen Publishing opened their doors in late February of 2013 and has since developed an amazing portfolio of talented best-selling and award-winning authors. Clean Teen Publishing will be feeding your reading addiction for years to come with their numerous Young Adult and New Adult books. Read more below to find out what makes Clean Teen Publishing unique:


What Makes Clean Teen Publishing Different For Readers? 


One of the things that makes Clean Teen Publishing stand out from the crowd is their trademark rating system. All Young Adult genre books that are newly published through Clean Teen Publishing contain a content rating and full disclosure. This content rating is based on the following: Romance, Language, Violence and Drug/Alcohol Abuse. At Clean Teen Publishing, they believe that their readers deserve to know ahead of time what they are reading. They do not believe in censorship; they believe in the right to know. Every reader, no matter what their age is, has certain boundaries they don't want to cross. Currently there is no consistent rating system in place for books like there are for movies, music and video games. Clean Teen Publishing believes that by offering a wider range of disclosure about the content of their books, they will give readers of all ages and parents, a stronger sense of comfort according to what lies between the pages. 

With that said, they will not deem whether a book is appropriate or inappropriate for any particular age range. Their disclosure is simply for you to know what is in the book and we leave it up to you to decide what you are comfortable with reading. 



ASK THE PUBLISHER:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION: "Your name is Clean Teen, doesn't that mean that every book you have is clean?" ~Reader

ANSWER: "Our name is Clean Teen Publishing because we liked the name and because we wanted to make a unique name for ourselves within the publishing industry by utilizing our content rating system. We can't define the term 'Clean Teen' because clean could mean different things to different people. Instead, what we can do is offer you full disclosure of what is included in our books. With that said, we do advise that you utilize this disclosure if you are looking for books that are moderate in content because some of our books may have mature themes. One nice thing is that you will never be surprised with the content in our books, because the full disclosure is at your fingertips."  ~CTP Crew


Do you have a question for the Clean Teen Publishing Team or for some of their authors? Check out their Video Blog on YouTube and ask a question in the comments. 




What Makes Clean Teen Publishing Different For Authors?
"Now that your book is finished, let your story begin…"

At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe our authors, who create new and amazing literary worlds, deserve to receive a large share of the profits that their art creates. We also believe that our authors deserve the support of quality editing, breathtaking covers and the power of a strong marketing presence behind them. As authors ourselves, we know that your writing comes from your heart and, in a sense, is a part of you. We will carefully protect that part of you and work hard to keep your creative vision alive. We strive to be different and unique in the publishing industry. Some of the complaints  that we have heard about from authors is that their publishing house is hard to get ahold, that it takes too long to get a book published, that they aren't treated the same as other "best-selling" authors in the house. This is where Clean Teen Publishing and Crimson Tree Publishing is different. We like to think of our authors as part of our family. Our team is available daily to answer questions, to provide support and guidance and to be your biggest fan. Our authors work together and provide support and feedback to each other. If you are looking for a new home for you next novel, we recommend you review our author feedback on our website and on our Facebook page.

Clean Teen Publishing is currently accepting submissions for Young Adult and New Adult novels. We are looking for well written YA (young adult) or NA (new adult) novels that are between 50,000 and 100,000 words. We are looking for something unique and breathtaking. For more information on our submission guidelines, check out: http://www.cleanteenpublishing.com/submissions.html


 Are you our next Clean Teen or Crimson Tree Publishing Author? 


Also check out our Adult Fiction Imprint:

Crimson Tree Publishing is open for submissions. We are looking for unique New Adult and Adult fiction. We generally prefer fiction with some sort of romantic element in the storyline. While we accept stand-alone books, our ideal submission would be the first two books in a series or a novel and a novella that is a prequel to the novel. We are looking for something unique and breathtaking. Please note that while this is our adult imprint of Clean Teen Publishing, we still prefer manuscripts that are not heavy on sexual content, violence or language. For information on how to submit to Crimson Tree Publishing, please view our submission guidelines at:

New Cover Review

We are excited to share the official COVER REVEAL AND ARC GIVEAWAY for Hidden Monster by Amanda Strong. Hidden Monster is scheduled to release by Clean Teen Publishing on November 4, 2014. This young adult sic-fi thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat as you try to determine who the bad guy is. You will be suspecting everyone all the way until the stunning conclusion at the end. HIDDEN MONSTER is book one in The Dragon Fae Series. 

HIDDEN MONSTER by Amanda Strong


The breathing halted as the ski mask cocked to one side. His voice slurred, “What do I want?” I bit my lip to keep from gasping. He’d never responded before. “It’s obvious isn’t it? I want you to fall in love with me.”

For seventeen-year-old Samantha Campbell, running back woods trails usually means freedom from her less-than-perfect life. That is, until the day a morning run turns into a living nightmare. When Samantha wakes up to find herself bound to a dirty, pinstriped mattress, she realizes she’s anything but free. With a masked abductor repeatedly injecting her arm with an unknown substance while holding her captive, Samantha tries in vain to find out what he wants, but he refuses to speak. Until the day he breaks his silence and his twisted words are worse than what she’d imagined. He promises her one day she will fall in love with him but the best part will be that she won't know who he is... until it's too late. 

Finding herself freed from captivity, with her captor still at large, Samantha is on guard against everything and everyone around her. Unfortunately, walling up her heart proves difficult when eighteen-year-old Blake Knightley moves in next door. When Samantha starts experiencing strange changes within her, she realizes her captor may have left her more damaged than she originally thought. Now she must turn to Blake for help in order to unearth the truth behind the monster who started this all... or risk experiencing worse things than just falling in love.

Young Adult Paranormal Romance

With eyes’ opened to the realm of angels and demons, Micah discovers he has become the Seer, called to save the world from an impending fire.  Shy and awkward, Eden stumbles through high school clueless her guardian angel shadows her every move, keeping her safe while she unknowingly “awakens” others to their spiritual gifts. Micah will need those Eden touched to complete his mission which began long ago in the ancient City of Enoch and its secret underground temple. 

With angels and demons fighting around them, both Eden and Micah must find their own personal courage and faith in order to know what to do for the battle that awaits them, one they must triumph or risk losing everyone they love.




More About Amanda Strong:


Born in Dekalb, Illinois, Amanda Strong has called Utah, Arizona, Hawaii, Virginia and now New Mexico home. Amanda has been spinning tales since she was a child. Her family still remembers finding young Amanda with her bright pink glasses, hiding in random corners of the house while scribbling away in one of her many spiral-bound notebooks. You could say that some things never change since Amanda is still writing today. Amanda began her writing career when she uploaded The Awakener, her first full-length novel, on Wattpad where it received over 430,000 reads in four weeks. She was blown away and humbled by the reader support and feedback she received. Because of The Awakener's success as a non-published book, she was asked to talk on 1400 KSTAR about her story. 

In September 2013 Amanda Strong signed with Clean Teen Publishing for publication of The Awakener, which is scheduled to release in late October of this year. The Awakener is the first book in an all-new young adult paranormal romance series called: The Watchers of Men.  

When Amanda isn't writing, you can find her chasing her three rambunctious children around the house and spending time with her wonderful and supportive husband. On some occasions you can still find Amanda with her not-so-pink glasses, hiding in a corner reading her favorite young adult fantasy novels or working out only to blow her diet by eating ice cream.
