Siren Song
by B.A. Blackwood

How can a pint-sized, self-avowed word nerd master otherworldly forces when she hardly has the wherewithal to master calculus? That’s exactly the conundrum for Ariel Robinson, a freshman at Montana State University who encounters far more than the normal coed’s share of strange new circumstances.

Siren Song: Book 1 of the Siren Song Trilogy is author B.A. Blackwood’s first of three wildly inventive, humor-inflected young adult fantasy novels starring fallen angels who roam the earth, and the unsuspecting who happen across their high-flying paths. With wit, suspense, and a romance that transcends the human plane, it’s a smart, fantastical foray certain to absorb readers who relish a read that’s equal parts fantastical and funny.

When Ariel receives the glossy brochure from Montana State University inviting her to apply, the outdoorsy tomboy feels like a lifer who's been shown the secret escape passage from the cell block of her parents’ Dallas socialite scene. But when she arrives in Bozeman with her trunk load of books, the welcoming committee is far from what she had imagined. As if it’s not bad enough that her roommate Kristin looks like Barbie crossed with Gossip Girl, some invisible being with a sinister voice literally knocks her flat onto the frigidly cold sidewalk—and onto a hospital gurney. It seems that she’s actually been lured into the training grounds of two battling factions of the Fallen Angels, who are convinced that Ariel can lead them to the Piece of Home, a mysterious, highly coveted object lost when they were evicted from the big mansion in the sky that will determine who wins their war. All is not lost, however. A ridiculously good looking senior named Michael seems intent on popping up everywhere to chaperone her home. And while her blonde bombshell roommate Kristin and geeky classmate Todd insert themselves into their relationship in various vexing ways, Ariel is soon initiated into a world of Fallen Angels, including the kindly, patriarchal Achimalech, snooty Daniel, robotic Cyrus, and superstar lawyer Lucian. As Ariel is enmeshed in a battle beyond the scope of humanity, she learns that despite their heavenly pedigree, angels have romantic impulses, wandering eyes, and are as quick to lie, steal, and even murder as any mere mortal. Can Ariel find the Piece of Home and settle the age-old score—and snag a super hot boyfriend in the process?

Siren Song: Book 1 of the Siren Song Trilogy will keep you dying to read on, and laughing all the way to the pearly gates.

Walking Through Walls
by
Jeffrey R. Winters

DescriptionIn "Walking through Walls" we meet Nina who leads a very ordinary life, void of love and passion. One day after work, she unintentionally kills a robber and lands in prison. She must leave the comfy oblivion of her everyday life for the claustrophobic gray conformity of prison. There a second chance awaits her, but to take it, she must change. And to do that, she must stay alive. This fast paced novel has colorful characters, vivid and atmospheric descriptions, and an unexpected and gratifying ending.

Fear of Shadows
by
Stephanie Parker McKean

DescriptionSelf-sufficient Texas Eugenia Thornhill espouses many rebellions, including giving any man authority over her heart or her life. She hates the mother who named her “Texas” after her birth state instead of giving her a real name. She hates the mother who ran off and left her young child with a cold, emotionless father.

Texas brags that she’s not afraid of anything—not even spiders or snakes. Her boast proves empty when she meets childhood friend West Strom and realizes she is deathly afraid of shadows, but clueless as to why. Time and again she shatters her nascent romance with West by mindlessly shrieking and running out of her childhood home, fleeing the shadows that terrify her.

And yet, for the first time in his miserable existence, life feels normal ... feels real. But as those around him soon realize, reality is not what it seems. For when a tragic accident forces Kain's hand, his astonishing secret--and godlike power--changes their lives, and the world, forever.

Here Among the Ruins
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionA collection of poetry

Drink Our Fill
Ever once awhile and again
I think back to where it begin
A tracing of a fingertip
A momentary trip and slip
Goosebumps and shivers
Moments sliced into slivers
A pause and then a glance
Wondering if there could be a chance
If only time could somehow stand still
While our hearts drank their fill


High Tide
by
Maureen A. Miller

DescriptionU.S. Geological Survey expert, Nick McCord, cannot account for the strange phenomenons plaguing the Windward coast of Oahu. Breaking waves on a windless shore. Dead fish washing up on the sand. The only viable culprit for these anomalies is the new housing development, Manale Palms, and its attractive contractor, Briana Holt. Try as he might to find blame with Briana and her site, the truth remains a mystery.

The Night Porter
by
Mark Barry

DescriptionTHE STORY The Night Porter is set in a hotel, in November, in the fictional town of Wheatley Fields, (based on Southwell, near Nottinghamshire, deep in Sherwood Forest). It takes place over two weeks, underneath steel grey clouds and icy rain.

Four writers, all nominated for an upcoming awards ceremony, come to stay. One mega successful romance author, a top US thriller writer who sells in seven figures, a beautiful young YA tyro on the brink of world wide stardom... ...and a degenerate, nasty, bitter, jealous, trollish, drunken (but brilliant), self-published contemporary fiction author. The eponymous, pseudonymous and anonymous Night Porter is instructed by a secretive and powerful awards committee to look after their EVERY need, to ensure they make it through the two weeks to attend the ceremony. At the same time as keeping an eye on their wishes, antics, fights, relationships and never-ending ego explosions. And trying desperately to avoid getting involved himself.


Sing
by
Mary O Paddock

DescriptionMeet a man who doesn't understand women or whales, a woman who cries when it rains (or is it the other way around?), and others in this whimsical collection of short stories and vignettes.
