One fateful night – different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful – Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos that is the parahuman world, a world with chipper zombies, truck driver wereponies, maniacal necromancers, ancient dragons, and now one undead accountant trying his best to “survive.” Because even after it’s over, life can still be a downright bloody mess.

Fay and Ellie Marlow are two sisters from Sandford, south of London, living with their parents; Rita and Gordon.

As teenagers, they chase boys and double date, all fun and games until one day Fay’s life is irreversibly changed.

Fallen pregnant, she and the handsome Jeremy Page quickly marry and settle down. Not comfortably, as one night, Jeremy leaves the house and doesn’t return…

For the next few years, the Marlow family struggle to keep together in the wake of death, life and loss.

Fay must hold it together for her daughter’s sake and Ellie tries to stay loyal to her family despite feeling betrayed once Fay remarries, while Gordon works to keep his family together.

Living in the grand Sandford Lodge, the family quickly increases in size as time rolls on; Fay’s four daughters being raised in the house, just as she and Ellie were as girls.

Twenty years after the first daughter, Laura, was born, an unexpected visitor returns looking to cause trouble and wreak havoc in the finally calm household.

With the lives of the six women in the family weaving in and out of each other, the romances and tragedies all come to a head, with results no one was expecting.

While the relationships between sisters remain strong amongst the drama, it is the bonds between fathers and daughters that are the most tumultuous.

In the sweltering heat of a Montana July, the small town of Grandview readies for its annual Jamboree. The event is meant to celebrate community, but this year tensions boil over, threatening to tear the town, and a family, apart.

Sam Kelvig, a third-generation resident, will do just about anything to protect Grandview from the influx of new oil money and the strangers chasing it. Meanwhile, his restless wife, Patricia, wearies of the constraints of marriage to a man who is so tied to his community; Sam’s estranged son, Norby, has reluctantly returned home despite the family’s struggle with accepting his sexuality; Henrik, Sam’s volatile brother, is looking for any easy opportunity; and Blanche, the family matriarch, only wants a bit of peace before she dies. As Jamboree goes into full swing, the disputes and desires of the Kelvigs–and their friends and neighbors–collide, fueled by both longtime resentments and an irrepressible hope to preserve their family and hometown.

DESCRIPTION:

A compilation of the first three books in the Xoe Meyers Series.

Xoe: Xoe Meyers had a normal life. So she was stuck going to high school, and she only had a few friends to call her own. She liked her normal life. Things were about to change though, because there’s a new guy in her small town, and he is anything but normal. Before Xoe can say, “Werewolf,” her best friend’s life is in peril, and Xoe’s world is turned upside-down. Then, of course, there’s Jason. Xoe doesn’t trust him as far as she can throw him, and given that he’s a vampire, she’d have to be able to catch him first.

Accidental Ashes: Last year Xoe’s life was turned upside-down. Things haven’t improved much. With the lives of her friends at risk, Xoe forgets to worry about another life…her own. With the reappearance of a face from her very distant past, and a random string of abductions to deal with, Xoe has to fight to keep things together. Even if ‘together’ is a far cry, ahem…howl, from the norm.

Broken Beasts: Xoe had hoped that after the events of the last few months, things would finally slow down. No such luck. The werewolves are out for blood, and so are the vampires apparently. Let’s not even get started on the problems her own friends are causing. Regardless of the danger, Xoe and her rag-tag entourage are in Moab, facing the werewolf coalition. Their final ruling will change Xoe’s fate, and the fate of her friends forever. Here’s hoping that’s a good thing.

In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald’s, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children—everything from cousins (“celebrities for little kids”) to toddlers’ communication skills (“they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news”), to the eating habits of four year olds (“there is no difference between a four year old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor”). Reminiscent of Bill Cosby’s Fatherhood, Dad is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.

Never fall in love with a bank robber.

Especially if she’s the one who robbed your bank, took you hostage, and dumped you unconscious at the local convenience store. And definitely not if you are the assistant district attorney of Tupelo, Mississippi.

This is the advice Hank Huckleberry Rivers would have given himself, back when he was a man who vowed to always walk on the right side of the law. The same law that had seemed sacrosanct ever since the day he and his friends watched as two men were murdered right below their tree house.

Falling in love with a dangerous criminal can have life-altering consequences, though. And when the past and the present meet head-on, Hank finds himself in more trouble than he ever bargained for. He must run to save his life, daring to find answers to the questions threatening his safety and his heart, as the killer below the tree house comes after Hank–and his pistol-wielding bank robber.

It’s a simple case of love in the first degree.

DESCRIPTION:

From one of the greatest rock guitarists of our era comes a memoir that redefines sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll

He was born in England but reared in L.A., surrounded by the leading artists of the day amidst the vibrant hotbed of music and culture that was the early seventies. Slash spent his adolescence on the streets of Hollywood, discovering drugs, drinking, rock music, and girls, all while achieving notable status as a BMX rider. But everything changed in his world the day he first held the beat-up one-string guitar his grandmother had discarded in a closet.

The instrument became his voice and it triggered a lifelong passion that made everything else irrelevant. As soon as he could string chords and a solo together, Slash wanted to be in a band and sought out friends with similar interests. His closest friend, Steven Adler, proved to be a conspirator for the long haul. As hairmetal bands exploded onto the L.A. scene and topped the charts, Slash sought his niche and a band that suited his raw and gritty sensibility.

He found salvation in the form of four young men of equal mind: Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, and Duff McKagan. Together they became Guns N’ Roses, one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Dirty, volatile, and as authentic as the streets that weaned them, they fought their way to the top with groundbreaking albums such as the iconic Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion I and II.

Here, for the first time ever, Slash tells the tale that has yet to be told from the inside: how the band came together, how they wrote the music that defined an era, how they survived insane, never-ending tours, how they survived themselves, and, ultimately, how it all fell apart. This is a window onto the world of the notoriously private guitarist and a seat on the roller-coaster ride that was one of history’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll machines, always on the edge of self-destruction, even at the pinnacle of its success. This is a candid recollection and reflection of Slash’s friendships past and present, from easygoing Izzy to ever-steady Duff to wild-child Steven and complicated Axl.

It is also an intensely personal account of struggle and triumph: as Guns N’ Roses journeyed to the top, Slash battled his demons, escaping the overwhelming reality with women, heroin, coke, crack, vodka, and whatever else came along.

He survived it all: lawsuits, rehab, riots, notoriety, debauchery, and destruction, and ultimately found his creative evolution. From Slash’s Snakepit to his current band, the massively successful Velvet Revolver,Slash found an even keel by sticking to his guns.

Slash is everything the man, the myth, the legend, inspires: it’s funny, honest, inspiring, jaw-dropping . . . and, in a word, excessive.

DESCRIPTION:

SHATTERED MIND. SHATTERED WORLD

He doesn’t know his real name. He doesn’t know how the world became a dystopian remnant of what it once was. He doesn’t know where all the people have gone. His mind is shattered.

And he’s dancing with a mannequin named Livvy.

He’s Solo–at least that’s what Tom, his only friend in this desolate world, calls him. Tom is without conscience, without remorse, and enjoys spouting folksy one-liners to drive home his beliefs.

Life is like licking honey off a thorn.

Solo’s memories are fleeting. Latent images swirl in the murky ocean of his mind, some surfacing without warning: A girl–Eye Lyds. A hospital. An experiment. Danger. And perhaps the truth.

The truth? Why when a lie would do so nicely?

As Solo begins to string together the fragments of his returning memories, he loses even more of his grip on what is real and what is not. Can he make sense of his life “Before” so he can save the woman whom he loves in the “After?”

Forget the Regret.

Irresistibly readable, Solo is a mesmeric science fiction, psychological thriller in the same vein as The Twilight Zone, and a study in how far one damaged man will go to save someone he loves.

Be careful how you fight the monsters, lest you become one.

Charlie Hutton is an irreverent, wise cracking jock, living in La Jolla California. Her foul-mouthed humor and unconventional lifestyle are in sharp contrast to her heart stopping beauty as she soars through life on a rocket of relentless energy and good humor. She has many friends but the most beloved is her impressively large and remarkably flatulent dog Tinkerbelle.

Always on the lookout for appealing revenue sources, she responds to a university ad looking for well paid volunteers for a Science project.

It is revealed that the research involves time travel and although she is apprehensive about the dangers, she is drawn by the handsome remuneration, the prospect of adventure, and the emotional lure of reuniting with her deceased alcoholic mother, and she agrees to participate. The experiment is a qualified success. She survives but instead of being propelled to New York in the 1970′s, as anticipated, she finds herself in the 1880′s in England, She is compelled to find a way to exist in this alien, repressive, misogynistic society for an entire year before she can hopefully return to her carefree life. Her survival depends on suppressing her impulses and curbing her tongue which she has found difficult enough in her own decade of origin, but nearly impossible amongst the staid Victorians. They find each other mutually appalling, particularly Conner FitzGerald, the captain who plucks her from the ocean where she unexpectedly arrives.

She is too compelling to be ignored, and too outrageous to be taken seriously, in site of all her efforts to assimilate.

It is a thought provoking comedic adventure with a juicy dollop of romantic encounters and entanglements.. Animal House meets Wuthering Heights.

DESCRIPTION:

An amnesiac convalescing in Big Sur encounters an oddly sinister envoy from the Freemasons’ Scottish Rite Psychophrenic Research Program…. A stoned surfer trespassing on Hearst Castle property gets hauled up into the sky by a massive flying black triangle…. A notorious starlet attending the wrap party for her first major Hollywood movie assassinates a Moscow journalist with a bottle of radioactive nasal spray…. In Crash Gordon and the Revelations from Big Sur, Derek Swannson combines these elements into a comic and subversive international thriller.

OCTOBER 1988: It’s morning in America again. Ex-CIA Director George H. W. Bush is calling the shots as Vice President. Intelligence agency black budgets are on the rise. Ronald Reagan’s trickle-down economics has been trickling upon the American populace for nearly eight years. It’s been a non-stop champagne bash for the rich, who’ve become much richer, but for the middle class and the poor the trickling has acted like acidic piss, burning gaping holes in their social safety nets. Is the increase in suffering intentional? Gordon Swannson thinks so–and he has the metaphysics to prove it. Sort of.

Fresh from a five-year resident scholar program at the Esalen Institute, Gordon (“Crash” to his friends) arrives in the sleepy seaside town of Cambria, California, to deliver a lecture titled “Galactic Loosh Farming and Reaganomics: How Much Longer Before the Fabric of Reality is Ripped to Shreds?” It’s the start of a bizarre chain of events that will launch Gordon’s career as an investigative journalist and entangle him with a cast of characters that includes: James Marrsden, a gleefully foul-mouthed radio DJ and Gordon’s untrustworthy childhood best friend; Kayleigh Fuller, a stoner witch who happens to be the niece of Buckminster Fuller; Skeeze Lester Huntley, a porn-addicted surfer whose alien abduction inspired him to become the Dope King of Central California; Rina Rowley, a lovely young actress with a shockingly ugly past; and looming largest of all, James’ morbidly obese and obscenely wealthy Uncle Lloyd, “super secret black-ops bagman for the medico-military-occult complex… and matchmaker.”

Determined to uncover the truth behind Lloyd’s lurid tales of psychic killers and a mind control program known as Project MONARCH, Gordon chases down leads from Cambria to Amsterdam’s red-light district and the Brussels headquarters of an alien-inspired sex cult calling itself The OääD Institute–getting a profound education in the machinations behind the 20th century’s greatest unexplained mysteries along the way. Seeking the final piece to the puzzle, Gordon returns to his roots in the isolated, faux-Swedish town of Kingsburg, where those mysteries began. What he finds there will send him hurtling toward a climactic showdown against a naked assassin dead set on turning the Cold War into a hot mess.

CRASH GORDON and the Revelations from Big Sur is the big, shaggy conspiracy novel that everyone has always wanted to read–without actually knowing it. There’s a reason for that. They don’t want you to know about it.

You do know there’s a They, don’t you?

DESCRIPTION:

When Heather Jane Bell is diagnosed with alopecia and her hair starts falling out in clumps, she wants nothing more than to escape her home in London and disappear off the face of the earth. Heather gets her wish when her concerned parents send her to stay with a great-aunt in West Yorkshire. But shortly after she arrives, Heather becomes lost on the moors and is swept through the mist back to the year 1833. There she encounters fifteen-year-old Emily Bronte and is given refuge in the Bronte Parsonage.

Unaware of her host family’s genius and future fame, Heather struggles to cope with alopecia amongst strangers in a world foreign to her. While she finds comfort and strength in her growing friendship with Emily and in the embrace of the close-knit Bronte family, Heather’s emotions are stretched to the limit when she falls for Emily’s brilliant but troubled brother, Branwell.

Will Heather find her way back to the comforts and conveniences of the twenty-first century? Or will destiny keep her in the harsh world of nineteenth-century Haworth?

“…a quick and engaging read that YA readers of all ages will enjoy.” ~The Reading Cafe

“Mixing time travel, romance, history, and suspense, this new take on the Brontë family is refreshing and unique. Although a work of fiction, the story makes you imagine what it was like for the Brontë family in the 19th century. The Mist on Bronte Moor brings you on a vivid journey to a historical past.” –YA Vixens

DESCRIPTION:

“You don’t want to buy me. I’ll kill the man who buys me.”

Despite that outrageous threat, plantation owner Boyd Jardine buys Caleb and puts him to work in the fields. But soon Jardine discovers that his new slave is both better educated and more widely traveled than himself. When Jardine’s pregnant wife dies and Caleb saves the unborn child, Jardine grows increasingly dependent on him not only as a servant but also as a companion–and so their relationship as master and slave begins to change.

As the Civil War looms and Caleb’s thirst for freedom grows, Jardine reluctantly agrees to let the slave buy his freedom. Caleb has no money, but Jardine comes up with a scheme: Caleb can earn the price of freedom by fighting–and winning–boxing matches. But–in an ever more turbulent political climate–even if Caleb makes enough to purchase his freedom, what then? Freedom papers don’t mean much in a state of war.

Set against a conflict that threatens to split a nation, Caleb’s story is both tragic and triumphant.

DESCRIPTION:

Stephanie Evanovich, New York Times Bestselling author of Big Girl Panties, says “Laura Kenyon makes happily ever after desperately delicious!”

Imagine what might happen if our most beloved fairy tale princesses were the best of friends and had the dreams, dilemmas, and libidos of the modern woman. How would their stories unfold after the wedding bells stopped ringing? Set in a fictional realm based on New York City, DESPERATELY EVER AFTER sprinkles women’s fiction with elements of fantasy, and encourages readers to rethink everything they know about happy endings.

Years after turning her husband from beast back to man and becoming his queen, Belle finds out she’s finally going to have a child. But before she can announce the wondrous news, she catches him cheating and watches her “happily ever after” go up in flames. Turning to her friends for the strength to land with grace, she realizes she’s not the only one at a crossroads:

Cinderella, a mother of four drowning in royal duties, is facing her 30th birthday and questioning everything she’s done (or hasn’t) with her life.

Rapunzel, a sex-crazed socialite and one-woman powerhouse, is on a self-destructive quest to make up for 20 years locked away in a tower.

Penelopea, an outsider with a mother-in-law from hell, is harboring a secret that could ruin everything at any moment.

One part Sex and the City, two parts Desperate Housewives, and three parts Brothers Grimm, DESPERATELY EVER AFTER picks up where the original tales left off–and reimagines them a la Gregory Maguire’s Wicked. With the wit of authors like Jennifer Weiner and the vision of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the women of DESPERATELY EVER AFTER rescue each other from life’s trials with laughter, wine, and a scandalous new take on happily ever after.
