Rising Tide: Dark Innocence

by Claudette Melanson

Could Maura’s life get any worse? …turns out it most certainly can.

Isolated and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura’s never been able to make friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that almost everyone around her keeps their distance.

Even her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses to utter a word about her long-lost love?

When a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates, Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

If life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring, compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother’s lies—become obstacles in Maura’s desperate quest for the unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.

Under A Tie Dye Sky

by Suzee Carson Branch

Suzee takes you along to walk, drive, hitchhike and fly the road of life she found in the 60s. Questing, Suzee chases The Dream that the enchanted ones were committed to finding. Love and truth snatched them out of this world to go wherever they were led. Something wonderful and shiny transfers out of her stories about encounters with the Beatles, college life, childhood friends, experimenting with drugs, her fantasies, and gripping challenges.

Suzee takes us back to the days Boomers experienced, but somehow may have missed or forgotten. This isn’t just another memoir about a patchouli-wearing, acid-dropping Flower Child with a berserk past. There are strands of hope and you’ll find yourself wondering how this person ends up writing about God and forgiveness. It’s all here, told in her warm, whacky but insightful writing style.

Knights Of The North: A Yukon Adventure

by Bobby Hutchinson

HIS RIGHT HAND MAN TURNED OUT TO BE A WOMAN

Constable Christine Johnstone joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police looking for travel, adventure and promotion. But working undercover has put her life in danger, and the best way to protect her is to hide her in plain sight–as a working constable in Dawson City, Yukon.

Corporal Michael Quinn doesn’t consider himself a chauvanist, but he needs a tough young policeman to help him uphold law and order in what is still in many ways a frontier town. He can’t believe they’ve sent him a female constable. Quinn is a renegade cop, a still young, old fashioned, disillusioned Mountie whose career is at a standstill. He’s the law in Dawson, and he’ll be there upholding it until he retires. He knows his town and all the people in it, and he has no illusions about love, marriage and happily ever after–or about the ability of his new constable to subdue drunken miners.

But Chris knows that brains can outdo brawn. What she doesn’t know is how to deal with the sizzling attraction between her and Quinn. How can they resist passion when winter is one long, dark, cold night?

Jonah The Seer

by Howard Littleson

In 1936 Jonah Cook was twelve years old. He lived in a tiny rural Michigan town gripped, as all towns were, by the economic ravages of the Great Depression. He was in every way a typical boy, or at least he thought he was, until the day of his Uncle Jasper’s funeral when he discovered he had a bizarre gift. This gift, or curse as some would later come to refer to it, sent Jonah head long into a hair raising supernatural journey that brought him face to face with his greatest fears and released unintentional consequences that forced him to fight for his freedom, to prove that he wasn’t schizophrenic, and to protect the lives of those he loved the most.

In this, the third novel by author Howard Littleson, the richly textured details of the 1930’s come alive as Littleson takes readers on a riveting journey which starts with a small town graveyard and the secrets buried beneath its granite markers. The journey continues through the stately halls of a well-intentioned asylum of the day where murky diagnoses and crude courses of treatment force Jonah to question everything including his own sanity. Finally, the journey takes the reader back to the tiny town of Davisburg where Jonah struggles to live a normal life, find purpose and meaning for his controversial gift and put away, once and for all, the demons that haunt him.

Inevitable

by Jonathan Nace

Your world’s water supply is reaching its finite end. Aquifers are drying, and water is being divided between production of food, medicine, and agriculture. When America found itself on the brink of Malthusian catastrophe, population control was installed for the greatest good for the greatest possible number of people.

For Benjamin Zachary the country did only what was necessary. As any other twenty-one year old, Ben expects to receive his Fairness In Nature And Life Act (FINAL) letter from The Office of Population Management. But he grows suspicious and nervous when he fails to receive his letter within weeks after his birthday.

Ben soon learns that his fears are well-founded as he is being accused of a crime he did not commit for a second time – this time by The Office, itself. He is wanted for immediate trial by Panel Hearing. Ben struggles to face his own death, knowing that he has little chance of defeating The Office at its own game. He has no lawyer to represent him, no knowledge of the rules of the hearing process, and he finds that the Panel that is going to decide his fate is hand-picked by his adversary, Office Director Dante Ringer. His only hope is his friend, Patricia Mullins, whose cold acknowledgment of The Office’s necessity juxtaposed with her feelings for Ben, twist her into conflicting directions. As Ben and Patricia fight to overcome The Office’s powerful organization, they learn the only way out for Ben is at the expense of others.

Up against a nearly unlimited government agency created to deal with a dramatic environmental crisis, Ben and Patricia fight against the Inevitable.
