An emptiness consumes me. The rational part of me shuts down as the need for survival kicks in. I have to get over her, but I can’t do that with these people constantly bringing me back to her.
 
Jagger Carlyle’s world has imploded. He needs a fu*&ing break. A break from her. A break from everything that was lost.
 
Going on tour with the band Raid Night doesn’t help. One night fades into the next as he drowns himself in booze and a sea of blonds until a chance meeting with a crazy woman, a medical emergency, a horse theft, a monkey, and sleeping under the stars threaten to change his life forever.

Coyote Summer by Laura Koerber

Coyote Summer
by Laura Koerber
Genre: Magical Realism, Coming of Age
 
 
Ben O’Rourke, his best friend Clint, and their classmate Claire were supposed to grow up to be wealthy, prominent people like their parents. They were private school kids, raised in the belief that they were obliged to turn expensive educations into prestigious positions in society. Actually, more than that. They were entitled to prestigious positions—at the top.
 
Clint had done that by winning his dad’s seat in Congress. Benny didn’t know anything about Claire, except she’d never married and she still lived in Camden. Right there in Clint’s district.
 
Ben was nervous. His voice had to reach across the Rocky Mountains, across the Great Plains, and all the way to Wisconsin. And it had to reach across nearly forty years and who-knows-what changes and pain as well. Did it mean anything that Claire never got married? Girls who went to Saint Anne’s were brought up to get married.
 
As the phone rang, Ben’s memory returned to the past…and the two girls who’d rerouted his life the summer before college. An assault on Claire right after their high school graduation had led Ben to struggle with right, wrong, and his place in society; while his first love, Puppy, taught him there was much more to life than a prep school upbringing…maybe even things that floated beyond the realm of human understanding.

Laura started off life as an artist. Even in early elementary school she could draw with near-photo realism. She liked to tell herself stories while driving, or doing boring tasks such as housework, but never thought of herself as a writer. That is, until she got involved in the rescue of an abused dog. Her first book, a collection of short stories entitled The Dog Thief, made the Kirkus Review list of one hundred best indy publications and set her on a course of writing. With one exception, her subsequent novels are in the genre of fantasy, though four have themes relating to current events, and three are also dystopias. Wild Hare, the story of a half/man-half/nature spirit and his feud with the local civic powers also made the Kirkus Review “best of” list. The exception, I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found, is the nonfiction account of the largest dog rescue in the US to succeed without help of local authorities. Laura is a retired teacher and lives on an island in Puget Sound with her husband; her one-eyed cat; and her elderly, disabled and chronically grumpy shih tzu. She is volunteers at a rescue for unadoptable cats.

Mischief Island by Daneal Brown

Mischief Island
by Daneal Brown
Genre: Erotic Romance
 
 
Strengthen relationships with Insane O _ _ _ _ _ S”
This ad in the daily newspaper was all it took for two couples to go on a vacation of a lifetime.
Time away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind can always bring two hearts back
to one.” - Whit Lafleur
 
The McDonald’s and The Lafluer’s seem to have it all -- a loving relationship, a wonderful home
and some awesome friends, that is always there for them no matter what.
Lauren, the ambitious beauty, worked hard at her job, always bringing work home, trying to be
recognized as more than just a pretty face. Unknowingly she was neglecting her husband Leroy
in the bedroom and it began pushing him towards a young beauty at his job.
With Whit working more overtime than he’s ever worked in their twenty plus years of marriage
to his loving wife Suzanne the spontaneousness in their sex life was slowly fading away.
With a headline like “Insane O _ _ _ _ _ S,” how could the feisty buxom blonde Suzanne, pass up
this opportunity, no matter how tasteless Lauren thought it was, she had to see what it was all
about. After an intense morning workout and a regular day at the office, Suzanne and Lauren
went to one of their favorite eateries for lunch. Before their food could hit the table Suzanne
had already made the call and gave some mysterious woman all of their business. Now all they
had to do was convince their husbands.
Join Suzanne and her best friend Lauryn as they pull their husbands into a wild adventure on an
island where love reigns supreme, but mischief rules.
The couples let their hair down and find multiple ways to strengthen their relationships with
drinking, dancing, romance and oranges?
 
From the creative mind of Daneal Brown Mischief Island, will display and test friendship, love,
and marriage in this spicy novel.
 
 
 
 
 
Daneal Brown has been creative all of his life, but he didn’t start focusing his creativity on writing until he began attending high school in Atlanta, GA. His writing started out as poetry, which later became raps. Being a huge rap music fan, Daneal tried his hands at many rap styles, but storytelling became his signature style. His love for storytelling intensified in college when he was a student at Grambling State University.
 
After graduating and entering the real world, Daneal got away from writing his tales, but his writing was revived after seeing a writing challenge on Facebook. He hopes that his writing takes people into a zone where they lose themselves and rekindle lost emotions. When asked about his writing style, he said it’s out the box, spontaneous, entertaining, and he doesn’t plan on sticking to one genre.

Messiah--Biblical Retellings by C A Gray

Messiah: Biblical Retellings
by C.A. Gray
Genre: Biblical Retellings
 
 
 
Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be one of the five thousand when Jesus multiplied the fish and the loaves? Or one of his disciples when he walked on water? Or to have seen Lazarus come out of the tomb? Ever wonder what Mary thought when Gabriel told her she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit, or what the fallout was like in her personal life? Ever considered how those two disciples felt on the road to Emmaus, when they found that the man with whom they had been talking was in fact their risen Lord?
 
This collection of retellings from the gospels is designed to bring each of these stories and more to life in your imagination. They stick to the facts wherever the facts are known, from either the scriptures themselves or from extra-biblical commentaries. But they also add in back story when necessary, reimagining the sights, the sounds, the colors, and the emotions for the person most involved. Each retelling ends with an afterword discussion, summarizing the reasons for the choices made in the story, followed by the scriptures themselves.
 
Together, I hope these retellings help to paint a portrait of the Messiah.
 
 
 
C.A. Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies: PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends), THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology), and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that she's interested in learning more about herself, and then creates lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it. Her stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual content, and she abhors depressing endings... but they're not all kittens and rainbows either! She also listens to and reviews audiobooks on her website (www.authorcagray.com), Goodreads, Instagram, and on her podcast, Clean Audiobook Reviews, where she also occasionally interviews other authors.
 
By day, C.A. Gray practices naturopathic medicine, podcasts, and writes medical non-fiction under her maiden name (Lauren Deville). She lives in Tucson, AZ with her husband Frank, and together they maintain an occasionally contentious film review blog (under her real name: Lauren Baden. Three names. Yes.) She's kind of the queen of multitasking--so in her spare time, she creates whatever meals or crafts she found most recently on Pinterest, drinks lots of coffee (Aeropress btw) and occasional wine (reds--and she saves the corks for craft projects), works out (while listening to audiobooks), and studies the Bible (about half of the podcasts on Christian Natural Health are scripture meditations). ...She does sleep, too.
