Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
Mosaic, by Angelin Sydney
‘A wise woman once told me that when you break a vase, you can’t pick up the pieces and glue them back together to recreate it. It just doesn’t work that way, but you can pick up the broken pieces and make a beautiful mosaic out of it. You can create something truly beautiful with the broken pieces, and it doesn’t matter how many fragments there are. Or how tiny they are.'
Mosaic is a story about broken people whose lives have been touched by pain and suffering, yet it is also a story of hope, redemption and finding love in the most unexpected places. It is also an interwoven story, our stories, of characters who are complex and yet relatable.
This is our story.

The Risen: The Lifetime's War - Vol. One, by Todd Hartsell
The Lifetime's War has raged for centuries, leaving combatants on both sides of the conflict with no understanding of why they fight. Each side knows only to trust in the monocles they wear and the knowledge it provides, marking who is their foe and who is not, so they may lay down their lives if necessary to become one with The Rising.

After a devastating battle, a soldier and a medic, each from opposing sides, find themselves alone and separated from their troops, forced to rely on one another in order to survive the harsh winter elements without a functioning monocle to tell them who to trust or what to believe....
                     
Blacktip Island: a novel, by Tim W. Jackson
Inadvertent embezzler Blake Calloway high-tails it to the Caribbean, a step ahead of the Feds and desperate to restart life as an anonymous divemaster in a tropical paradise. On Blacktip Island, though, Blake quickly discovers “tropics” doesn’t mean “paradise,” and rookie boat hands stick out like a reef at low tide.

The locals are quirky: a landlord who swears he’s Fletcher Christian reincarnated, a boss who likes fish better than people, a sloshed resort manager with a sex-crazed wife, a possibly ax-murdering neighbor, and a girlfriend who just might turn Blake in for the reward money. Blake steers a ragged course between them, trying to straighten out the mess he’s made before the cops can track him down and ha...

  1. I wanted to let anyone that reads this know that my book, "The Risen" is free through the end of the week. I guess my timing for setting the free promotion didn't coincide with being posted on KBoards.

    So please, if you're a lover of YA stories or know someone that is, give us a try!
