A man hiding from his past and a woman running from hers.
Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared with one another in Facebook messages. They’ve never heard the other’s voice, or seen a photo.
Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She’s cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are — fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart.
Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She’s just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship.
Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise – actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas.
And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek.
Christmas Inc.: A Politically Incorrect Tale Of What Happens When Santa Goes Public
by Pendelton Wallace
Warning: This is not a children’s book. Exposure to children under 12-years old may cause child to stop believing in Santa Claus or take a cynical view of Christmas.
What would happen if Santa decided to go public and sell shares of Christmas on the NASDAQ?
The Wall Street Journal called it “the biggest IPO (Initial Public Offering) since Facebook.”
But, with the influx of capital comes a host of problems. Now Christmas Inc. comes under public scrutiny. Santa must report to the stockholders and stockholders want to see a profit.
When the economy collapses and Christmas Inc. is in danger of bankruptcy, the Government deems Christmas Inc. “too big to fail.” Santa must accept a government bailout. With the bailout comes increased regulation.
So how does Santa solve his problems? He does what every other major CEO does: cut costs. First, he hires illegal burros from Mexico to pull his sleigh. Then he outsources toy making to China and his IT services to India.
This throws thousands of elves out of work. Most leave the North Pole to find work elsewhere. Christmas Inc. follows the lives of three elves caught in the turmoil.
Henry moves his family to New York to pursue the American Dream. As illegal immigrants, they try to make a life for themselves in mainstream America.
Duncan gathers a group of friends around him, forms a co-op, rents a closed down workshop at the North Pole and starts a toy company to compete with Christmas Inc.
Always the rebel, Alstair starts the Occupy North Pole movement. Sit-ins, political rallies, protests and speeches quickly spread around the world. Before you know it there are Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Paris and Occupy San Francisco movements.
Add in a James Bond-style super villain, Hu U, a general in the Peoples’ Liberation Army of China. Santa outsources his toy making to Joy International, a company under General Hu’s control. Unbeknownst to Santa, Hu’s goal is nothing less than total world domination (of Christmas). Hu’s factories start shipping toys covered with lead based paint, containing melamine, small parts that can choke a child and faulty welds.
Can Santa save Christmas and return us to our cherished values?
Christmas Inc. is a rollicking, politically incorrect satire on the state of our society.

Monte Vista Village
by Lynn Lamb
THE APOCALYPSE— WOULD YOU SURVIVE? I’m Laura, and I survived global nuclear war. When I walked out into the devastated landscape, I didn’t find zombies, witches or vampires— what I found was infinitely worse; it was real.
IS THIS OUR RECKONING? Our tormentor is no longer the enemy; it is what’s left of the desperate earth. My neighbors are starving and sick from the biochemicals in the air. Our food, water and meds are running low. Our only hope is to come together to stay alive.
WHO WILL LEAD US TO SALVATION? Certainly not me. Why would it be me? The Army Colonel should be the leader of the Village, not me.
