Euthanasia, by Mack Mulluncey
She lies on the cold, metal table--clad in a loose, white paper dress--waiting, waiting, waiting, as her lover claims his next victim.

THE TAKE, by Mike Dennis
In the world of small-time bookie Eddie Ryan, only the cop cars are black and white. Everything else swirls in a kind of gray soup. Overcome by greed, lust, and the survival instinct, Eddie takes part in a high-stakes heist, stepping into a morally treacherous world where no one can be trusted, and where life expectancy is short.

Set in the dim half-light of the Houston and New Orleans demimondes, THE TAKE is a fast-paced, nerve-jangling ride.

The book includes a preview of SETUP ON FRONT STREET, the first novel in Mike Dennis' Key West Nocturnes Series, a group of novels designed to reveal Key West as a true noir city. The series takes the reader behind the margaritas and the sunshine to the dark shadows and alleys of...

Spirit of the Road: The Life of an American Trucker...and his cat, by Rick L. Huffman
Spirit of the Road: The Life of an American Trucker...and his cat embarks on a one-year journey across the United States in an eighteen-wheeler. It runs the gambit from a wide-eyed rookie in Commercial Driving school to the eventual embracing of a new lifestyle at a dusty little truck stop in Crab Orchard, Tennessee.

Having made the transition to trucking after spending 20 years in television broadcasting, the author sets a comical tone from the very first chapter in a "fish-out-of-water" story. However, the dangers and challenges of life in a big truck are very real, and the book takes on a more somber tone to describe this aspect of road life. The reader is also introduced to little-known, funny, or unusual historical f...

Fresh and Crispy: Journal of an Italian Walking Tour, by Nancy Millikin Tubbs
My first trip abroad was a nine day walking tour of Italy, from Rome to Florence to Venice. I discovered that parts of Italy, Florence in particular, were overrun with statues of naked men, everywhere I looked. Maybe that was my fault. Maybe I shouldn’t have been paying so much attention.
Both my sister and I seemed to be trying to discover just how many ways there were to embarrass ourselves in a foreign country (while my niece somehow managed to remain relatively unscathed).
The food, from pasta to pizza to tiramisu to gelato, was truly incredible – not to mention wine every single night with dinner! Such civilized people, the Italians!
This is a short, funny book describing my summer trip to Italy. ...

A Divide Beyond Reason, by Roger Emile Stouff
As boys they were inseparable, brothers born of different mothers and fathers. Over the course of their lives together they were drawn into a heinous crime and the path of a terrifying Indian loner; climbed into the mountains in search of courage; confronted treachery on their very doorsteps; loved and mourned, and faced death in the wilds.
Now they are old men; one among them stands against the theft of his home by corrupt politicians and an avaricious developer. The second stands with the villainous. And the last must choose between the law he took an oath to uphold and a lifetime of friendship.
So begins a journey across three lives, forever entwined no matter how divided. How they came to this place in time, a shotgun a...

Choking on a Camel, by Michal Ann McArthur
"A moving, dynamic debut." --Kirkus Reviews

Meet Alex Ferguson:

Compulsive skeptic. Devout believer. At odds with the group-think at her fundamentalist university. Preached at and taken advantage of. Agonizing over the recent death of her brother. Hurting for the larger world she lives in. Wrestling with the God she wants to love but maybe hates and definitely doesn't understand.

"An intriguing, multifaceted portrayal of Alex's spiritual journey."--Kirkus Reviews


New release. Literary novel. Religious fiction....
