The Woodsman
by Craig Hansen

Steve Peretti is a prolific serial killer known as The Woodsman. For years, he's terrorized dozens of victims throughout the Upper Midwest, without drawing attention or suspicion to himself, keeping a low profile. He's cautious, careful, and calculated ... most of the time.

But anyone can make a mistake.

One night, on the way home through Hope, Wisconsin, he stops for gas and ends up foiling a robbery. He gets injured in the process, and ends up in jail over a conceal-carry violation. While in lock-up, he taunts and is attacked by another prisoner, who blinds him.

Then he's given a chance to have his vision restored through an experimental, advanced eye-surgery program at UW-Madison, called EyeCU. His surgery is successful, and he returns from EyeCU ready to rebuild his life with his new eyes. And that means returning to being The Woodsman.

But he begins having strange visions; vivid dreams about acts of kindness and mercy that seem foreign and terrifying to him. Worse, he finds it difficult to carry out his normal acts of evil, leaving him increasingly helpless at a time when he's at his most vulnerable.

Evil can corrupt good, but is the reverse true? Can good disrupt the persistence of evil? If you've ever enjoyed movies like Eyes of Laura Mars, The Eye, or Blink, then The Woodsman is a tale that will defy your expectations, yet leave you entertained and more than a little unsettled.

Coerced
by
Mr. Dana Griffin

DescriptionOn landing at New Orleans’ International Airport, Omega Airlines 737 goes off the end of the runway. The investigation into the incident reveals the crew rushed to land before an approaching thunderstorm. Months later, reporter Stacy Greenier confronts Omega Airlines 737 Fleet Manager, Kyle Masters, asking pointed questions. Her mysterious behavior makes Kyle reluctant to contemplate the issues she questions until evidence is hidden from him, and his questions are answered with vague replies. People involved in the incident begin dying. With the help of NTSB Investigator Lori Almond, Kyle learns there’s more to the incident than a crew rushing to land.

The President
by
Johnny T. Noctor

DescriptionWhen The Hobo tries to get justice for his fractured skull and brain damage caused by a coward punch, the Hobart police refuse to arrest the perpetrator. Instead the cops relentlessly try to entrap the innocent victim, giving him no choice but to sleep in the woods on the mainland. In order to stay sober, The Hobo campaigns in four Australian States as a preferred party of AA, and spars in the hardest gyms with great Australian fighters. Even when fit and sober, he realizes that without the puppet master, he’ll never get to fight in Australia ever again. Desperate to earn money for his wife and baby, and not wanting to fall off the wagon, the homeless boxer gives this promoter one last chance to do the right thing. All the while, America’s great, lightning-fast fighter flies to Australia, straight into the eye of a Hobo tornado.

by
Mary O Paddock

DescriptionShe came to Gliese to save her marriage. Now she's trying to save herself.

She's willing to risk it.


Love and Liability
by
Katie Oliver

DescriptionHolly James is looking for her big break. A young journalist for BritTEEN magazine, she is dying to write about something more meaningful than pop stars and nail varnish.

The Wolf Tattoo
by
Kenneth Fore

DescriptionA man’s impromptu journey into the Alaskan wilderness is life changing when he tangles with a grizzly and an Eskimo woman who thwarts his attempts to escape. She takes him on an unforgettable journey where they must fight wilderness crazies and mysterious beasts that skulk through the forest like nothing you have ever seen. When they reached her clan’s winter campgrounds it is an unbelievable place isolated in the middle of the arctic wilderness and it is protected by huge wolves called Saluuettes.

Gabriella
by
Alan Hardy

DescriptionYou’ll love this bawdy, comic account of love and sex during a cricket match, where red balls, long-handled bats and probing deliveries are ideal metaphors for the game of love. This is a game of cricket played in a way you've never seen before.

Tales from the Promised Land
by
John Rose Putnam

DescriptionTales from the Promised Land is a collection of five of John’s most compelling stories of life in early California. From the tongue in cheek Bottomless Bartlett’s Beautiful Bride, in which a man offers $200 for a suitable wife, to Uncle Charley, where the rapidly changing times may surprise even a modern reader, each tale will leave your heart richer. A falling out between brothers is the focus of the powerful Payback at Murderer’s Bar, and in Firebaugh’s Ferry a reporter meets a woman at a lonely stage stop where the most wanted man in California will soon be executed. And with the adventurous Stoddard’s Gold comes a brand new twist to the famous yarn about a lost lake of gold high in the Sierra that will bring a smile to every face.

Blacklisted
by
Luke Romyn

DescriptionNobody can escape their past. It will always be there, returning to haunt you in the darkest times of your life.

Mike Swanson knows this - his past torments him daily and he sets himself upon a path of death and misery. He justifies his dark deeds by enacting them upon those he perceives as evil, not knowing that the real evil lies within himself.

Killing the scum of society, Mike becomes one of them and draws the attention of a group who require people with his skills. Unwillingly enlisted into the notorious 'Blacklisted Brotherhood', Mike must first survive horrendous training in order to hunt down a madman whose deeds will see the world plunged into anarchy if he succeeds.

Blasting across continents in their pursuit of justice, the team will come together in ways that they had never imagined and must learn to trust each other if they are to survive.

For if they die, it could mean the end of freedom.

Will Mike survive the confrontations in order to see out the mission? Or will he cut loose and run from the responsibility that has been placed upon him? Why should he care for the people of the world when they have never cared for him?

Why indeed...?
