The Beauty in the Beast
by Regina Puckett

Why does everyone across the university campus call the Medieval Literature lecturer, Dr. Alec Knight, a brute and a beast, when Holly Day insists there has to be a better man hidden deep within him? Is there really a concealed beauty in the beast or is Alec just as terrible as the rest of the world believes him to be? One snowy day, out on a cold stone wall at the center of the university when everyone else has left for the Christmas break, Holly finds out the truth, after which neither she nor Alec will ever be the same again.

by
Carl Stevens

DescriptionTHE CANTERBURY TALES IN NEVERLAND makes a post-apocalyptic detective thriller resonate with literary history and ask what it means to be well-read . . .and to get the joke. This is a post-apocalyptic mystery wherein the detective's need for hard facts clashes with a culture's need to reinvent itself on the ever shifting sands of story telling. There are two main stories. In one, Jackson Thomas, a former mayor of a small town known as The Ville, is trying to avoid being stoned to death on false charges of conspiracy to incite riot and murder. He is hampered by being under arrest and dependent on a friend to wear out shoe leather poking into what really happened. Meanwhile Jackson's son and several of the son's friends have all talked themselves into believing that the wisest solution to Jackson's dilemma is to trek across a hostile landscape in search of angels and a miracle.

Fall Eagle One
by
Warren Bell

DescriptionIf you liked Col. Steiner in THE EAGLE HAS LANDED, you'll love Siegfried von Rall--"the best pilot in the Luftwaffe"

BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE NOVEL IN 2014 INDIE BOOKSTORE CONTEST!

The time is 1943, and Nazi Germany is reeling from nightly battering of her cities by the RAF. Catastrophe looms at Stalingrad. Siegfried von Rall, Hermann Göring’s technical advisor, hatches strategic missions to buy time for his country to refine cutting-edge technology into “Victory” weapons.

Two targets galvanize Siegfried’s attention: Soviet hydro plants in the Urals and killing FDR. He chooses aircraft and a team of experts for the missions. Göring fast-tracks detailed planning and training.

In Britain, codebreaker Evan Thompson reads Siegfried’s radio messages but can’t detect his objective. The chilling truth emerges only after an Amerika-Bomber bearing “smart bombs” leaves Norway for the U.S.

FALL EAGLE ONE has aerial combat, trans-Atlantic assassination flights, Eastern Front action, codebreaking at Bletchley Park, intrigue at the highest levels of the German High Command, and fast-paced war-time romance.
