Parasite Girls

Parasite Girls

Aidan Connor is a globetrotting American photojournalist. Burned out from a disastrous assignment, he turns up on the Tokyo doorstep of his old college friend, Mima. He soon learns that Mima's past (and his own) become present.

A talented artist, Mima is struggling to make it on her own. Two of her oldest friends, Sora and Eko are also battling a peculiar form of social injustice: they are branded "Parasite Singles" because both still live at home despite being in their early thirties.

Aidan knows everyone has a story: a brilliant painter, Sora suffers from mental illness. Eko, who appears to be the poster child for the term also has a dark past.

As he remakes himself, Aidan is reminded of what kept him close to Mima all these years. He also sees what keeps Mima, Sora, Eko and Mima's old love so close as well...one thing never dies. More info →

Shadow Storm (Quantum Touch Book 3)

Will evil prevail? Can the portal “Give Peace a Chance?”

What will Fritz Russell have to confront next? And where? After he opened the portal into the Oval Office and became friends with the man who works there, Fritz reluctantly agreed to help the president make the world a safer place. He saved hostages, helped prevent a nuclear war, and began a life of excitement and danger he never saw coming.

Now an ominous shadow has been cast by a hidden enemy prepared to use violence to upend world affairs. The president has only a year left in office, and every disruption fuels his concern. As violence escalates and Fritz himself becomes a target, the portal may be the only way he and the president can end the growing danger and bring peace to the globe.

But the voice in the shadows believes they cannot thwart his plan. “Uncertainty breeds fear,” he says. “Fear wins elections. Scared people don’t want more of what makes them afraid.”

SHADOW STORM (the third book of the Quantum Touch series) plunges Fritz into the portal’s mysteries and dangers. More info →

Eye of a Fly

Eye of a Fly

Short description: Raised by slum-dwelling alcoholics, an autistic teen struggles to complete college and woo a handicapped girl—with bittersweet results.

Longer description: Eye of a Fly is a novel of tragedy and redemption with a cast of characters that includes:

* Ernest Wentworth, a profoundly introverted boy who inhabits a world of mathematics and music. *

Tiffany, his innocent younger sister whose friends practice voodoo.

* Warren, Ernest's talented but learning-disabled younger brother whose suicide triggers the novel's finale.

* Harry, Ernest's father. A former Hollywood screen writer, he has always dreamed of drinking hard, seeing the world, and writing like Hemingway—but only succeeded at the first.

* Annie, a handicapped but radiant girl who draws Ernest out of his shell.

***

JD Salinger for the New Millenium.

A brutal delight written with the compassion and wisdom of the greats, Eye of a Fly by Justin R Smith is one of my favorite books by a living author.

Written in simple, honest and accessible poetic language, it goes right to the reader’s heart. There is so much more to this story than the description would suggest. A truly beautiful transcendent reading experience cleverly disguised as a sincere and heartfelt urban coming of age tale, it is, in fact a journey into the heart of redemption of the human spirit.

And even being at times a real tear-jerker, the book has humorously slapstick moments which are so rude and outright funny, I nearly s**t my pants laughing. The scene at the butcher’s counter at the corner grocery store is one of those hilariously surreal literary memories that I will doubtless take with me to the grave — and quite probably beyond. Justin Smith with this splendid new book has earned himself a place as the new millennium's answer to JD Salinger. Bravo!

Live from the Cafe

"What did you dream today?”

Harlandsville, Quebec—look up the definition of small town in a dictionary, and you’ll find its picture.

A one-stoplight village, Harlandsville doesn’t have a lot to offer, or so it seems. Old homes, an abandoned mill, a gas station, one Chinese takeout joint, and a former pub turned into a coffee shop. For the latter, one learns never to judge a book by its cover.

One step through the doors of Le Cafe, and you enter a world where the coffee is brewed one pot at a time through a strange machine, the pastries are homemade, and the music is a roadmap of Canada’s history.

Presided over by Luc, the son of one of Harlandsville’s most loved residents and his partner Emily, the cafe is home to natives and visitors alike. Where the coffee is strong, the spirit of friendship stronger, and occasional strange (and famous?) characters show up to hang out, and play music.

Small-town life, love, change, prejudice, pasts and futures are examined and experienced. The heartbeat of Harlandsville is right here. You never know who’ll show up, or what will happen next, Live from the Cafe...

Through The Suffering of Others: A Fictiongarden Anthology

Through The Suffering of Others: A Fictiongarden Anthology

The second anthology from Fictiongarden.com and almost twice the size of our debut effort, Through The Suffering Of Others expands upon The Door Beyond The Dark's original theme.

Much like the first anthology, Through The Suffering Of Others features established authors such as Lindsay Buroker and Tony Healey as well as returning faces like M. Todd Gallowglas, S.M. White and Tristan Gregory.

We start things off with the aforementioned best-selling author Lindsay Buroker's Shadows Over Innocence, a prequel short story to her Emperor's Edge series. Fans of Buroker will be familiar with the tale, but those who haven't read her work will find an intriguing starting point.

Next comes Kal S. Davian's Branding of a Heretic, the first story in his Nihilan Effect series of shorts and a cleverly written introductory piece about a scholar who uncovers a revolutionary secret that others wish to suppress.

This is swiftly followed by A Man With Purpose by best-selling science fiction author Tony Healey. Set in the same world as his Fallen Crown series, it serves as an excellent introduction to his grim and inhospitable The Bloody North.

Continuing the dark tone, S.M. White's The Last Battleground tells the story of a man who simply refuses to die upon the battlefield, but there's more to this brief tale than meets the eye.

Ogre by Tristan Gregory mixes faith with monsters, as a forgotten cleric returns home having succeeded in his mission to bring the monstrous ogres to his faith.

Michael Watson's western-themed Justine (The Sum of Stories) is the recollection of a self-professed tongue waggler and his encounter with the legendary Justine. It chronicles part of her journey and the subsequent conflicts in a storyteller style.

The Purifying Flame by Christian Warren Freed is a tale of duty and honour as one young man attempts to warn those around him of what it is he has foreseen. The Flame must be defended at all cost, but conflict from within may prevent their latest stand against a monstrous foe.

The Cave by J.R. Karlsson is set in a dark and cold cavern with a group of people who have no escape save for the inevitable death at the hands of their captors. It is their interactions and actions within the titular cave that make things interesting.

Lassie Came Home by Bruce Blake is a deeply twisted reunion story bordering on horror that involves a shape-shifting creature that takes the form of a beloved childhood dog for reasons unknown.

Sichana – Apex Rising by Tom Wright is a hostage pit fighting scenario set in the same Africanesque world as his popcorn fantasy series, where humans and animals are bonded together in pacts, with those bonded to predators seeking to dominate others.

D. Thourson Palmer's The High Red Country is a fantasy western that could have come to our screens in the western's hey-day. It's about justice, or so we're told...

Ken Lim's entry is Thaumaturge, an urban-based fantasy pursuit tale detailing the activities of the Fae Liaison Unit and their latest attempt to apprehend the titular thaumaturge.

Davis Ashura's Prank does exactly what it says. It's a light-hearted tale of the construction and execution of a prank at a military school.

Dragon Company by Patrick J. Loller has an intriguing setting: what if there were genetically altered dragon-like humanoids in World War II?

M. Todd Gallowglas shines in a brief story about an irritable narrator detailing a bedtime tale called The Two Pickpockets. A scenario every parent of a demanding but awake child will relate to.

Talonfall is a full-length novella kindly donated by SG Night and set in The Dominion of Io, the very same world (and with some of the same characters) as his début, Attrition.

Last but most certainly not least is another full-length work by V.M. Jaskiernia, the macabre pseudo-European entanglement of Larkspur: A Necromancer's Romance. The first introductory novella to her much-anticipated Larkspur series. More info →

Gwenna (The PastFinders)

Against all odds, the plucky sweet maker refuses to relinquish her dreams.

Amid the bustling vibrancy of Auckland’s Karangahape Road, Gwenna Price’s passion is making sweets. Her pa had great plans for the family confectionery business when they emigrated from the valleys of Wales looking for a new life, but he died all too soon. Gwenna promised she would bring his dreams to life instead - and she would, if it wasn’t for her domineering stepbrother, Elias. With him in charge, it would be a matter of time before the business collapsed.

Falling in love with the cheeky and charming Johnno opens up other opportunities, but every step of the way Gwenna is thwarted. If not by Elias, then by Johnno’s father and the restraints of a society with strict Victorian values, but Gwenna is irrepressible. Nothing will stand in her way.

Throughout the twists and turns of love and tragedy, Gwenna is a young woman with uncommon courage, determination and ambition in an era when women were expected to stay at home. There are people who love her and those who are willing to help her achieve her goal but, blind to anything that distracts her from creating her legacy, Gwenna risks losing the one thing that matters to her the most.

Inspired by a true story from the author’s homeland, Gwenna is a fascinating insight into life in Auckland at the turn of the 20th century.

There’s something to be said for lust at first sight.

Redd wasn’t looking for Mr. Right but Mr. Right now. But the moment Nikko walked into her bar she felt that first rush of need. She wasn’t shy about getting what she wanted even if only for one night, which was all her chaotic lifestyle would allow. Besides, not many men wanted to date a woman who worked in a nightclub, even if she were the bartender. It tended to make them sneer. She didn’t know which was worse. When they found out she was part owner or when they found out she was a law student. That intimidated some. She didn’t really care.

Nikko wasn’t looking for anyone. His life was full as the senior associate at a law firm and he just found out he was being considered for partnership. His life was about to become even busier. Then something happened that left him shaken. What should have been one night of uninhibited pleasure became a weekend, then it became more. How did that happen? And did he want it to stop?

“The best part of the book is that while it's definitely steamy with lots of intense scenes, the story has depth and the characters are people you would want to know in real life.”

“I always enjoy a good sit-down with a Deborah Grace Staley story -- she's has a real knack for writing affecting plots with engaging characters and satisfying resolutions. She's a very confident and technically assured writer who knows exactly what she wants to wring out of a romance novel. “

More Than One Kind

First published as 'San Fairy Anne:finding family'

One year is nothing; one year changes everything.

'You're old and cold,' are the words that end Anne Grüber's three-year relationship with a fellow-teacher. A hurtful insult that she fears may be true. What chance does she have now of finding love or even an adventure?

Then she sees an advert that will change her life: a job-swap teaching in a small Welsh town. Is it coincidence or fate that brings her to the very place her half-sister was last known to live? What happened to the child born in war-torn Alsace and ripped from her mother's arms? In search of lost family, Anne jumps into the unknown.

Neil expects professional development when he steps into Anne's shoes to teach in France. What he finds is passion. For one man, Luc, and for Alsace itself. Can he ever go back? And should he? When Neil and Anne swap lives for a year, they both find that there is more than one kind of love.

'More than One Kind of Love' challenges conventional views of family and responsibilities, making us question what risks we would take, and which relationships matter most, when tough choices have to be made.

Love can grow from the darkest of beginnings.

Patrick Houston has worked hard to make changes in his life so he can be someone his children and Angel Ridge will be proud of. But Frannie Thompson is back in town reminding him of a time when he'd been out of control and failing the people in his life. Can love and loyalty grow from such a rocky start

Was Mayor Patrick Houston actually going to pretend he didn't know her?

"What can I do for you, Ms. Thompson?" he repeated.

Frannie looked at the file in her lap, resting on top of her briefcase. She had moved to Angel Ridge to open a non-profit business that would help people struggling to find jobs and housing. She couldn't just walk away. But this encounter with Houston was unbelievable.

"Ms. Thompson?"

He was in for a shock if he thought she would play along to make this more comfortable for him. "I had no idea you were the mayor. Your first name isn't on any of the information I've seen. Just your initials."

He absently rubbed his chin, which made her notice he hadn't bothered to shave.

"Yes, well, the only thing anyone around here cares about is that my last name is 'Houston'." He actually smiled then and added, "A Houston has been the mayor of Angel Ridge for more than a hundred years."

"How nice for you." She stood. "However, it's your first name that would have mattered to me, since that was all you cared to share. It would have also been nice if you'd included that you're married."

Deborah Grace Staley is a life-long resident of East Tennessee. Married to her college sweetheart, she lives in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains in a circa 1867 farmhouse that has Angel's Wings in the gingerbread trim.

SAVING SANDOVAL: A True Story Kindle Edition

SAVING SANDOVAL: A True Story Kindle Edition

"A revealing, real-life courtroom drama, reminiscent of A Few Good Men."--Hunter R. Clark, Director, International Law and Human Rights Program, Drake University Law School

In 2007, U.S. Army Specialist Jorge G. Sandoval Jr. was charged with murder by the very government he had sworn to serve.

While deployed to the most dangerous area in Iraq known as the “Triangle of Death,” Sandoval, an airborne infantryman and elite sniper, was instructed to “take the shot” and kill an enemy insurgent wearing civilian clothes. Two weeks later, Army Criminal Investigation Command descended upon Sandoval’s unit and began interrogating the soldiers, trying to link Sandoval and others to war crimes, including murder. Captain Craig W. Drummond was the JAG military defense attorney assigned to Sandoval’s case. “The case blew up and was closely followed by reporters around the world. After all, a soldier is trained to follow orders, not ask questions or second-guess authority. I knew I needed to prove his innocence or risk other soldiers being tried and convicted for simply doing their job.”
