The Forty Watt Flowers, by C. Subasic
Living in the indie band capital Athens, GA, Trisha decides to start her own punk band. Four young women are brought together and The Forty Watt Flowers are formed.

Rosemarie, on keyboards, has a sex drive as fierce as a tornado. Aline, the singer, is a hermit, scratching out poems in her antebellum mansion. Juanita, on drums, has a poison tongue a little too quick on the draw. Toni, on guitar, made the mistake of heading South to come out of the closet.

In addition to managing her crew of misfits, Trisha struggles to figure out the chaos of her own life. The relationship with Brent is caught in the roller-coaster of his moods. She “lost touch” with her parents two years ago (and they probably still blame he...

Catalyst: Change is inevitable - she'll see to it., by K.C. Cairn
Thrown a thousand years into the future, Keata Windhunter faces more than a personal crisis. Her entire race is gone, and the people she sees around her now are a vague shadow of who they should be.


She's the sidekick, content to follow the lead of the super-powered, hiding in plain sight to protect a secret. When it is discovered, she is used to betray everything and everyone she holds dear. And now, she's the only one that knows Super is possible.

Time itself seems fractured and unstable, colliding and changing reality. Instinct tells her she can fix it and three clues should help - interactive glyphs just under her skin, ancient scribblings from a crazy woman, and her own fragmented memories.

                     
Only Forty More Years, by Carter Matthew
This intellectually funny, and easy to relate to, fictional work with dramatic undertones is a first-person story that centers around the humorously skeptical recent college graduate, Sean Bronson, as he lands his first “real” job and learns to navigate the treacherous waters of corporate America - beginning to realize that incompetence and underhandedness abound in every corner and that office life can often be anything but professional. The story is set in the headquarters of a multi-billion dollar home furnishing company located in the modern day suburban landscape of Long Island, New York.

The story begins as the sarcastically precocious, yet introspective, Sean is waiting his last table at a depressing, dream-graveyard...
                     
Bonita Faye, by Margaret Moseley
Margaret Moseley's colorful and unforgettable Edgar Award-finalist that captures Fannie Flagg's homespun charm and Janet Evanovich's laugh out loud humor.

A Walk with Mud: a story of two friends hiking from Canada to Mexico on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Anna Herby
Mud and Bug both love the same thing: hiking. Certain that this passion can transcend the complications of their relationship, they set off on a journey to walk from Canada to Mexico, 2,660 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. Together, they brave snow-covered slopes in the Cascades of Washington, walk through lava fields in Oregon, navigate a smoky haze of wildfire in Northern California, climb eleven thousand foot mountain passes in the High Sierra and revel in the desolate beauty of the Mojave desert in fall.

But just two weeks into the adventure they break up. With four months of hiking still ahead, they find that navigating the new terms of their relationship is just as hard as navigating the wilderness. As a veteran U.S. Ar...
                     
They Came from the River (The Sarea Legends Book 1), by Lauren Jimerson
Pliny, Michigan is a town unlike any other in America that has the peaceful Iroquois River flowing through it. It is a diverse, but poor village built on the traditions of ancestry, marriage, and inheritance in which the old families used to hold power and rank.

Siobhan June is a successful author from an old family. After returning back to her childhood home for her great-grandmother’s funeral, she is commissioned by the Pliny Historical Society to write a biography of the city. In her pursuit of writing a worthwhile book, she stumbles on to a murder mystery that awakens a deeply rooted, ancient magic that is associated with the river, Pliny, and even Siobhan, herself....
