Sense And Sensibility

by Jane Austen

A beloved classic, Austen’s first published novel explores the question of what drives your life: your heart or your head?

The Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, are as different as sisters can be. Serious Elinor lives by reason and thoughtfulness while her younger sister, Marianne, only follows her passions. But in questions of love, they learn neither the heart nor head alone will lead them to happiness. Filled with romance, Austen’s brilliant wit, and rich characterization, this is a celebration of sisterly love and the need for family–no matter how different they might be from us.

Dark Prairies is a gritty, emotional saga set in the Wyoming badlands with both greed and vengeance at its core.

When billions of dollars in natural gas rights hang in the balance and the town’s top law officer’s wife is slain by her own blood, a reluctant hero is forced to battle his own demons and ultimately choose between justice, revenge, and duty.

Social Death: A Clyde Shaw Mystery

by Tatiana Boncompagni

A gripping new mystery about the murder of a beautiful heiress and the scandalous secret she carries to her grave.

When veteran news producer Clyde Shaw is called to the scene of a grisly murder on the Upper East Side, she thinks it’s just another high-profile crime, the kind she’s built her high-powered career on — except the murder victim is Olivia Kravis, the daughter of Clyde’s billionaire boss and Clyde’s best friend since childhood.

As a high-stakes network ratings war begins, Clyde’s own privileged yet troubled past comes back to haunt her, and she’s forced to choose between finding her best friend’s killer and losing everything — her job, her reputation, even her life. Long-guarded secrets. Millions at stake. And only Clyde holds the key to unlocking the truth.

Then a horrible scheme to use children to spread terror is revealed and the trackslead to an inevitably lethal confrontation with a merciless terrorist group.

Will Sam find his son?

Year Of The Chick

by Romi Moondi

An awkward family homecoming at Christmas.

A humiliating public weigh-in, with two judging parents as the audience.

The announcement of a deadline for arranged marriage doom.

And that’s just the first two chapters.

In “Year of the Chick,” Romi Narindra must find love before her parents find her a husband (a seemingly absurd concept that’s the norm in many cultures).

To escape her fate, Romi wades through the waters of secret-dating, where self-consciousness is at an all-time high, and experience at an all-time low. It’s the sort of thing that would turn almost anyone into a man-crazy freak with romance tunnel-vision, and that’s exactly what happens to her. All the while, a lack of inspiration in her corporate job leads Romi to her love of writing, in what quickly becomes a man-quest play-by-play.

From whiskey-breath scum bags to uni-brow creeps and everything in between, Romi and her wingmen come up empty time after time.

And that’s when she meets a fellow writer. On the Internet.

So will it be arranged marriage doom, or an Internet affair that’s not as creepy as “To Catch a Predator”? Time will tell in the “year of the chick,” a twelve-month quest to find love.


My Kind Of Crazy: Living In A Bipolar World

by Janine Crowley Haynes

“The author lures us into her Bipolar world by injecting humor into the serious subject of mental illness. She acts as a tour guide and takes the reader on her manic journey and then steers us straight into the abyss of her depression.” –Diane Urban, PhD, NYS Licensed Psychologist, Adjunct Professor at Manhattan College and Westchester Community College, SUNY

“MY KIND OF CRAZY is an important contribution which sheds light on the often hidden world of mental illness. The line between reality and psychosis is impossible to comprehend unless one has seen the world from both perspectives. The author unlocks the door to a locked psychiatric facility and allows the reader cross the threshold. The story is further enhanced by glimpses of her experience through the eyes of her husband and son.” –William M. Dince, Phd, NYS Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist

by Ani Alexander

What if you had the same recurring dream, the same nightmare all so often?

Imagine having to go to bed every other day wishing the dream would not come, yet knowing perfectly well that it will. Imagine waking up shivering and being scared to go back to sleep. And imagine yearning to, yet never knowing the meaning of this dream.˃˃˃ Emma

Emma should have been the happiest person around. She had everything, money, friends, a big house, a successful husband, a loving mom. Yet, everything was not as it seemed.˃˃˃ Sara

Sara had had a long, eventful life. At 83, she’d seen it all. Born to holocaust survivors, she felt blessed to have had a wonderful married life and a sizable fortune. She missed Adam though, her beloved husband who was now no more. She was lonely, but no one could guess the secrets she bore, and pledged to take with her to her grave.

Fate had other plans though.

˃˃˃ Dika

Dika believed the worst was over for her. The Gypsy girl had been married off to an abusive man at a tender age and had gone through all what a woman could ever bear before gathering up the courage to run away. In her job as a masseur she had found her freedom at last and life seemed so different from what she had experienced as a child.

She had her set of dreams about life, much grander and much happier, but those were just dreams. She never expected them to happen, at least not this fast.

Will Emma ever find the meaning of her recurring nightmare? Is she ready for it yet? Will Sara survive the biggest test yet in her long life, that of letting go of her secret?
