The Spark (The Carolina ConnectionsSeries) (Volume 2)


The Spark (The Carolina Connections Series) (Volume 2)


*NEW STANDALONE ROMANTIC COMEDY*

When your back is against the wall, can you change the person life's experiences have molded you to be? 

Fiona Pierce is many things to many people. Dutiful daughter to her loving parents, fiercely loyal friend to her very tolerant bestie, half-assed employee to her laundry list of bosses, and dedicated fashion goddess and spreader of good cheer to the world at large. But Fiona is hiding something behind her irresistible smile - something she's determined to keep to herself. 

Mark Beckett doesn't do complicated. Saddled with lingering baggage from his childhood, Mark sails through life one girl at a time - with frequent gym breaks in between. He likes his life just how it is and doesn't see any need to change his work hard/play hard attitude. 

When an unexpected blast from the past threatens to turn his family's life upside down, Mark finds help in the unlikeliest of places - specifically the pint-sized princess who has a knack for pushing his buttons.  

Can you overcome your fears and embrace the happiness you might just deserve?
And, perhaps more importantly, can you really fall in love with someone who is so damn insufferable? 

Find out in The Spark by Sylvie Stewart.  

The Spark is the second book in the "Carolina Connections" series from Sylvie Stewart. Each book can be read as a standalone with a HEA. 

This book contains adult language and sexual content inappropriate for readers under 18.

New Exciting Card Game!



5ive: Kings Court


We're almost ready to release 5ive to the tabletop game lovers at Kickstarter - but we need you to help us bring the court to life!  Thunderclap allows you to contribute your social influence by sending a one-time post. Just press the big red buttons to support 5ive: King's Court via Facebook and Twitter. It only takes 2 seconds, that's it! Thunderclap will automatically post a synchronized update around the world on your feed, along with other supporters, on March 1st (2017).


Tell me more about 5ive: King's Court
--------------------------------------
5ive is a set-building game where players take turns attempting to foil the plans of their rivals by completing their own royal court. Players compete to complete a set of all 5ive card types by completing each of five actions.  Every action will impact another player, so strategy is critical.  A simple error in judgement could prevent you from completing your Court, allowing another player to take control and win the game!

In the King's Court, your role is to play actions that result in each of the members of your court (The King, Queen, Knight, Bishop and Rook) being in play. Each member of the court must complete a specific action before being added to the court, and multiples of any member can be added for security.


The game takes just a few minutes to learn, and a round takes from 10 to 20 minutes to play.




Origin Story
--------------------------------------
The game mechanic was devised by Luke Wilkinson, and David Papp decided to help make it all a reality. The GameStax team had great fun playing the mechanics demo. We printed several sets of the single word cards and battled it out. Along the way - we found that likening our 5ivecards to a 'team' of some sort added to playability. Soon we were adding symbols and colors to ensure we had created the full set.

After a lot of searching we arrived at the King's Court. Using the home row of a Chess set for inspiration, the King, Queen, Knight, Bishop and Rook formed the core five - or 'the 5ive'.

We couldn't settle on just one theme for the first deck, so we hired a brilliant illustrator to devise artwork for all of the possible sets of 5 in the game. Zombies, Aliens, Cats, Elder Gods - you name it. And since each court is filled by one of the 5ive - your court will be different nearly every time you play!

Our upcoming Kickstarter edition features:

- A traditional Medieval Court
- Amazing Aliens
- Stunning Steampunk
- Cthulhu
- Atlanteans of the Undersea
- Werewolves
- Feline Shenanigans
- Dungeon Fantasy
- Robot Overlords
- Zombies
- and Superheroes!

GameStax has created successful Kickstarter projects before, with our Game Accessory UberStax - and we learned a GREAT deal from that experience. Production and Fulfillment are very different beasts, and we've taken that experience to heart for this project.
