Bipolar Mama
by BZ Hercules

A little light comedy? Not in this case! BZ Hercules delivers a dark comedy about co-dependent behavior and its far-reaching consequences.

Wallis is beautiful and smart, funny and sexy. Unfortunately, she suffers from bipolar disorder. She has difficulty managing her life, and even more when she feels life's pressures due to her unpredictable illness.

Wallis' daughter Janie is searching for her Prince, the man who is going to make everything right for her and give her the love she doesn't get from her mother.

Bipolar Mama is voiced in parallel narratives, told from the points of view of each woman, spanning 20 years in Wallis' life and a week in Janie's. When their two lives merge at an intersecting point, will their paths converge or diverge? Will Wallis be able to clean up her act in order to ensure that Janie does not make choices she will regret?

A serial killer has been at work in the city, and Detective Noah Jordan turns to Morgan Snow to find out more about the psychology of a sexual murderer.

Married to Maggie

DescriptionTexas playboy, Ty Vincent, heir to the Vincent Oil fortune needs a short-term wife to convince his grandfather and the Board of Directors that he's changing his ways so they'll name him CEO.

The pains were becoming a common occurrence that started showing up after he lost his father in a fiery crash a year earlier. The woman who comes to his aid not only helps him with what she can only assume is a heart attack but she also fibs to keep airport security and paparazzi from descending on him. She's brilliant, unemployed and not his type which makes her the perfect choice for a temporary spouse. If he can ignore her extraordinary blue eyes then everything will go according to plan.

The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons.

Walking Away From The King
by
Mike Penny

DescriptionThe change necessary to save the human species and salvage the planet from impending ecological disaster cannot come from the powers that be, who only perpetuate their own ill-fated system. A swell of diverse grassroots movements has arisen to create a very different culture than our contemporary world controlled by corporations and plutocrats. Rather than the status quo with its patriarchal, domineering, and exploitative culture of Empire, these groups favor a truly democratic Global Community, centered on bottom-up ecological revival, gender equality, cooperative action and individual responsibility. Collectively, they have determined they must “walk away from the king,” in preparation for a Grand Transition from contemporary self-destruction to a world of resilience and sustainability.

Donavan
by
D.K. Cassidy

DescriptionIn Michael Bunker's “Pennsylvania”, we briefly met Donavan Yoder--a young man divided. Born in the Amish Zone, he was raised to embrace a plain, peaceful life. After he grows up, Donavan becomes an officer with the Transport Authority, the tyrannical government grinding New Pennsylvania under its iron boot. Eventually, his conscience leads him to side with TRACE, the resistance group fighting Transport for the freedom of the entire planet. Donavan has made some tough choices in his life. What ultimately drove him to sympathize with the very rebels he'd fought to subdue?

Barb Taub

DescriptionIn the world of Null City... Superpowers suck. If you just want to live a normal life, Null City is only a Metro ride away. After one day there, imps become baristas, and hellhounds become poodles. Demons settle down, become parents, join the PTA, and worry about their taxes. But outside of Null City, now that the century-long secret Nonwars between Gifts and Haven are over and the Accords Treaty is signed, an uneasy peace is policed by Wardens under the command of the Accords Agency.
