A Handful of Earth
by Larisa Walk

Historical fantasy (Medieval Russia Book 1)

Yaroslava is a princess without a throne. Her small city-state in the south of Russia has fallen to the Mongol Horde. Many believe that God Himself opened the gates of Hell to unleash the Mongol demons to punish people for their sins.

She must endure her new life as a slave if she is to free her people and herself. In captivity she is surrounded by many enemies: a fellow slave with an old grudge; a water spirit that wants to imprison her soul in its river; a jealous concubine that can harm with an evil eye.

Yaroslava must find courage to save her people and defeat her enemies in a handful of earth that absorbed the blood of her dying father.

Whispering Pines The Beginning
by
Charles E. Wells

DescriptionMatt and Chuck Veal of West Creek County, Georgia are brothers who own a timber sawmill. Chuck, the younger, left the state in search of a career outside trees in the newspaper business, leaving his brother to run things for them. The story gets into high gear when Matt vanishes and Chuck has to return to Georgia and figure out what happened, who "done it" and why. The sub plot and paranormal touch comes in the name of Gail, an employee of the same paper where Chuck works. She has a strange vision triggered when touching an old coin but doesn't connect all the dots until hearing about Chuck's missing brother and more in depth details of the Veal family history. Matt's friends, after Chuck arrives back home, join with him and together they stir up a hornet's nest of trouble and closets full of family skeletons. The fast paced action keeps the reader breathless until the last page of the book.

The Sacred Book of G
by
Gonzalo W. Bénard

Description"The Sacred Book of G" is a book of philosophy. A sacred book. A Journal of an inner journey of life. Written on different rhythms and times and locations. "The Sacred Book of G" was composed like a music sheet for a strings' quartet. It's music. In real life. It's minded. About brains, and inner thoughts on society - which does not make much sense. It's critical in its wonderings. Facing the world as it goes. It's fire in its dynamic and water so you can dive in. It's an inner brain coming out. A book of memoirs to remind yourself that life should be lived. An autistic journal to remind yourself that life goes on and that we must learn how to embrace it. No matter how. It's a book about life. A book defeating death. Written following the rhythm of the thoughts. Inner ones. With inner doubts. About life itself and how we all should manage it.

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
