    The Beatryce Prophecy by Kate DiCamillo (Candlewick Press)

    Description: In a time of war, a mysterious child appears at the monastery of the Order of the Chronicles of Sorrowing. Gentle Brother Edik finds the girl, Beatryce, curled in a stall, wracked with fever, coated in dirt and blood, and holding fast to the ear of Answelica the goat. As the monk nurses Beatryce to health, he uncovers her dangerous secret, one that imperils them all—for the king of the land seeks just such a girl, and Brother Edik, who penned the prophecy himself, knows why.

    And so it is that a girl with a head full of stories—powerful tales-within-the-tale of queens and kings, mermaids and wolves—ventures into a dark wood in search of the castle of one who wishes her dead. But Beatryce knows that, should she lose her way, those who love her—a wild-eyed monk, a man who had once been king, a boy with a terrible sword, and a goat with a head as hard as stone—will never give up searching for her, and to know this is to know everything. With its timeless themes, unforgettable cast, and magical medieval setting, Kate DiCamillo’s lyrical tale, paired with resonant black-and-white illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Sophie Blackall, is a true collaboration between masters.

    Revolution in Our Time: The Black Panther Party’s Promise to the People by Kekla Magoon (Candlewick Press)

    Description: In this comprehensive, inspiring, and all-too-relevant history of the Black Panther Party, Kekla Magoon introduces readers to the Panthers’ community activism, grounded in the concept of self-defense, which taught Black Americans how to protect and support themselves in a country that treated them like second-class citizens. For too long the Panthers’ story has been a footnote to the civil rights movement rather than what it was: a revolutionary socialist movement that drew thousands of members—mostly women—and became the target of one of the most sustained repression efforts ever made by the U.S. government against its own citizens.

    Revolution in Our Time puts the Panthers in the proper context of Black American history, from the first arrival of enslaved people to the Black Lives Matter movement of today. Kekla Magoon’s eye-opening work invites a new generation of readers grappling with injustices in the United States to learn from the Panthers’ history and courage, inspiring them to take their own place in the ongoing fight for justice.

    The Weight of Air: A Story of the Lies about Addiction and the Truth about Recovery by David Poses (Sandra Jonas Publishing)

    Description: “Soulful, achingly honest . . . A potent addition to the literature on drug addiction and recovery.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred)

    In this groundbreaking memoir, David Poses chronicles his struggle to overcome depression and heroin addiction. By age nineteen, he’d been through medical detox, inpatient rehab, twelve-step programs, and a halfway house. He saw his drug use as a symptom of depression, but the experts insisted that addiction was the problem. Over the next thirteen years, he went from one relapse to the next, drowning in guilt, shame, and secrets, until he finally found an evidence-based treatment that not only saved his life, but helped him thrive.

    With grit, humor, and brutal honesty, David’s story exposes the danger in traditional recovery models: they actually increase stigma and the risk of overdose, relapse, and death. As depression and addiction rates skyrocket and overdose fatalities surge, The Weight of Air is a scathing indictment of our failed response to the opioid crisis—and proof that success is possible.

    Description: In this third adventure, shipwrecked orphan Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, must square off with a creature of town lore as he confronts a shadow from his past. While other towns celebrate Halloween, in Eerie-on-Sea it’s Ghastly Night, and a grim spirit in a lantern awaits its moment. Legend has it that if people fail to light manglewick candles on Ghastly Night, and if no showman conjures shadow puppets on the pier as an offering, the insulted Shadowghast will seize and devour the shadows of the living. This year, a professional theater troupe has been summoned, including a raven-haired magician named Caliastra with startling news of Herbie’s origins. No sooner have the players checked into the hotel than townspeople start vanishing into thin air, including the guardian of Herbie’s best friend, Violet Parma. It’s up to Herbie and Violet to separate truth from sleight of hand and solve the mystery of the Shadowghast lantern before darkness swallows them all.

    Sona Sharma, Very Best Big Sister? by Chitra Soundar (Candlewick Press)

    Description: Sona Sharma's house is full of three generations of people who joke often and argue sometimes. Relatives come over unannounced, the phone rings frequently, and friends drop by all the time. Then one day Amma tells Sona that she is going to have a baby. Is that good? Sona isn’t so sure. She doesn’t want to share her room or her things with a new baby, not to mention the attention of Amma, Appa, Thatha, and Paatti. And despite Amma's assurance that the sky always has room for new stars, Sona doesn’t feel stretchy or bighearted like the sky. But when she learns there will be a baby-naming ceremony, she’s determined to find the best name for her new brother or sister—one as nice as her own, a Hindi word for “gold.” Perfectly pitched to young readers, this tale of warming up to change is followed by a glossary of words from India to explore in the story.

    The Robber Girl by Franny Billingsley (Candlewick Press)

    Description: A brilliant puzzle of a book from the author of Chime and The Folk Keeper plunges us into the vulnerable psyche of one of the most memorable unreliable narrators to grace the page in decades. The Robber Girl has a good dagger. Its voice in her head is as sharp as its two edges that taper down to a point. Today, the Robber Girl and her dagger will ride with Gentleman Jack into the Indigo Heart to claim the gold that’s rightfully his. But instead of gold, the Robber Girl finds a dollhouse cottage with doorknobs the size of apple seeds. She finds two dolls who give her three tasks, even though she knows that three is too many tasks. The right number of tasks is two, like Grandmother gave to Gentleman Jack: Fetch unto me the mountain’s gold, to build our city fair. Fetch unto me the wingless bird, and I shall make you my heir. The Robber Girl finds what might be a home, but to fight is easier than to trust when you’re a mystery even to yourself and you’re torn between loyalty and love. The Robber Girl is at once achingly real—wise to the nuances of trauma—and loaded with magic, action, and intrigue. Every sentence shines, sharp as a blade, in a beautifully crafted novel about memory, identity, and the power of language to heal and reconstruct our lives.

    Next Door Nightmare (Shut Up & Kiss Me, Book 3) by Jaqueline Snowe (City Owl Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: A millionaire pretending to be a chauffeur to get out of a marriage pact, what could possibly go wrong?

    Eleanora “Nora” Atwood is a spoiled heiress who has never shopped for groceries or paid her own credit card bill. When she wants access to a large portion of her trust, her parents make a decree: to get the money she will have to live in the real world for three months.

    But there is one other way to gain access to the trust—she can marry. All she has to do is cash in the favor Anthony Carter, fellow heir, owes her.

    Fritz—who hasn’t gone by the name Anthony since he broke free of the money world—takes advantage of her lack of recognition when he shows up at the airport after a camping trip and a hiatus from shaving to fetch Nora. When she assumes that he’s the Carter’s chauffer, he rolls with it, not realizing she’s going to be his next door neighbor. Fritz almost got trapped in a loveless marriage once before, and he’s not about to let it happen again.

    Nora couldn’t be more fish out of water, microwaving tin foil and playing audiobooks for her plants. Fritz learns the hard way that opposites attract, as he gets suckered into volunteering to help her navigate her new, cruel world.

    The more time they spend together, the closer Fritz comes to falling for the zany girl next door, but if he doesn’t find a way to tell her he’s Anthony Carter before she discovers his secret, he risks losing her forever.

    The Awful Truth About The Herbert Quarry Affair by Marco Ocram (Tiny Fox Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: TV personality Marco Ocram is the world's only self-penned character, writing his life in real time as you read it. Marco's celebrity mentor, Herbert Quarry, grooms him to be the Jackson Pollock of literature, teaching him to splatter words on a page without thought or revision.

    Quarry's plan backfires when imbecilic Marco begins to type his first thought-free book: it's a murder mystery-and Herbert's caught red-handed by the butchered body of his lover.

    Now Marco must write himself into a crusade to clear his friend's name. Typing the first words that come into his head, Marco unleashes a phantasmagorical catalogue of twists in his pursuit of justice, writing the world's fastest-selling book to reveal the awful truth about the Herbert Quarry affair.

    Praise for the first Awful Truth:

    "The Awful Truth is endlessly clever, on the mark with its targets and simply funny." — Alex Austin, author of Nakamura Reality

    "A wickedly amusing parody of a crime novel, but as fast-paced and action-packed as any police procedural. I enjoyed it immensely." — Minette Walters, author of The Turn of Midnight

    "Typing himself into trouble and writing himself out of self-inflicted scenarios, Marco Ocram is the self-referential literary hero we all need. The action and humor starts on page one and doesn't stop until the final sentence." —S.G. Browne, author of Breathers and Less Than Hero

As each layer of the past is uncovered, Julia is drawn deeper and deeper into the story of what happened at this house over fifty years before.

    The Mystery of Julia Episcopa by John I. Rigoli (BookWhisperer)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: In ancient Rome, a woman flees for her life.
    Her enemies are those she once called 'brother'.
    Hidden beneath her blue cloak are secrets men will kill for.

    Forgeries that prove the newly self-appointed bishops are not followers of the way, but pretenders who have seized power and will stop at nothing to shape this new religion to their own ends. Now, Julia - a woman who had once walked with Mary Magdalene and taught alongside Paul must preserve the legacy of the apostles in the face of terrifying danger.

    Two thousand years later, classical archaeologists Valentina Vella and Erika Simone are tasked with advising the newly-elected Pope on the historical legacy of women in the early Christian period.

    The women stumble across an ancient parchment buried deep in the Vatican archives, a document that has clearly been altered. They find themselves on the trail of a woman who may have been the first woman Bishop in the Catholic faith. To reveal Julia's legacy will put them in the cross-hairs of a venomous Vatican battle for power and supremacy; to stay silent would make them complicit in an ancient heresy and would betray the teachings that Julia sacrificed her life to defend.

    The Mystery of Julia Episcopa weaves seamlessly between modern day Rome and the politics of the Catholic church, and the times and life of a 1st century Roman noblewoman who rose to be a dominant force in the early Christian movement.

    "Three women connected by two intertwined stories of treacherous political intrigues, ancient cover-ups, and savage vengeance."

    The Sightless City by Noah Lemelson (Tiny Fox Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: First Place in the OZMA BOOK AWARDS 2019 (Fantasy)

    Kidnapping.
    Enslavement.
    Murder.


    Those are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to actions some will take to protect their interests in æther-oil, the coveted substance that fuels the city of Huile.

    As both veteran and private investigator, Marcel Talwar knows this firsthand, and he likes to think he'd never participate in such things. However, that naïve idea comes to a crashing end when he takes on a new case that quickly shatters his worldview.

    A trail of evidence points to someone in Marcel's inner circle who's using him as a pawn to conduct grisly experiments-experiments that could lead to genocide.

    Now, Marcel is more determined than ever to discover who's pulling the strings to this sinister plot. But the further he gets, the larger the target on his back becomes, and it's not long before Marcel has to ask himself how much and how many he's willing to sacrifice to get to the truth.

    "The Sightless City is like nothing I've ever seen. Fantasy, dieselpunk, and sci-fi. Past, present, and future — all at once. Step inside and never leave." - Gary Goldman, screenwriter for Big Trouble in Little China (1986) and Total Recall (1990)

    "Take one step into The Sightless City and you're pulled into a crackling adventure of intrigue, danger and mystery until the very last page. Lemelson builds an intricate steampunk fantasy world and sets it ablaze with haunting characters and deep moral questions. It's a thrilling debut!" - Amanda Silver, screenwriter for Rise of the Planet of Apes (2011), Jurassic World (2015) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

    "With one foot in the seemingly magical and the other in SF, The Sightless City hits that same sweet spot that Tamsyn Muir mines so successfully in Gideon the Ninth. Lemelson revives and updates the gestures of science fantasy to make it a truly 21st century form. Funny, dark, irreverent, and endlessly entertaining, The Sightless City is a rustpunk wonder and a first-rate debut." - Brian Evanson, award-winning author of Song for the Unraveling of the World and The Warren

    "Lemelson melds industrial revolution with powerful magic; and, like all revolutions, this one isn't a tea party." - Dave Higgins, author of Origin and Seven Stones

    Description: eBook format is .pdf
    Ed Garrison has it all: a successful basketball career, a great relationship with his kid brother, the best dog a guy could ask for, and a supportive family. With summer vacation the only thing standing between him and a full-ride scholarship to UC Berkeley, Ed feels invincible.
    But everything falls apart as high school comes to an end and his mother leaves his father for a woman three thousand miles away, leaving behind a broken home. Ed feels helpless as his father turns to liquor and work and his brother throws away his future for illegal substances and crime. Not even the dog sticks around to watch.
    Soon, Ed lashes out too. He turns down his scholarship in favor of attending a small school in Northern California to distance himself from his family and start a new life of his own. Alone and confused, Ed switches his major to journalism, trains for a marathon, and adopts a puppy, all in attempts to fill an unexplainable void in his life. But as the years pass, riddled with distrust and regret, he fails to maintain the relationships that matter the most. Ed has no choice but to reckon with his past mistakes as his dreams of a basketball career are shattered and his family continues to crumble.

    Faultland by Suzy Vitello (Ooligan Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: eBook format is .pdf

    Being a Sparrow child has never been simple. Olivia, Sherman, and Morgan all have their faults, and they all cope with their tumultuous childhood in their own unstable ways: Olivia leads an excessive lifestyle, Morgan cycles through risky behaviors, and Sherman dabbles in morally precarious business practices. Up until now, they have kept their family from completely crumbling; but the cracks in their relationships are about to be unearthed. As their shaky foundations collide, an earthquake levels their city.

    Olivia treks across a mutilated Portland to reach her family; Sherman finds it in himself to protect his siblings from militia looters and thugs; and Morgan uncovers the past wrongs of her parents. To make matters worse, their shelter is in the path of a mass of loose earth repeatedly shaken by aftershocks.

    When the siblings finally reunite, their new task is to survive long enough to be medevaced from their childhood home in the face of an impending landslide. Previously separated by secrets and resentments, they realize they are now united by survival. If resources don't run out, if sickness doesn't overtake them, if alt-right militia members don't intervene, and if the wet mass of land speeding toward their makeshift shelter doesn't bury them, they will have to navigate their past traumas and their parents' mistakes. Only then can they honor those they have lost—and survive as a family.

  • Word List unlike any you have seen before!


  • How will this book help you prepare for the GRE?

    GRE Words In Context: The Complete List
    contains a Word List unlike any you have seen before. A traditional word list offers a vocabulary word, its dictionary definition, and a SINGLE use of the word in a sentence. That is simply not enough for a fully functional understanding of a word in all its complexities.

    GRE Words In Context: The Complete List offers Word Lists from all the books in the GRE Words In Context series. Each Word List takes a vocabulary word through its paces, denoting its part of speech, synonyms for its various contexts, its dictionary definition, and, most importantly, THREE (3) to FIVE (5) sentences using the word in its varied contexts. When appropriate, those varied contexts include both literal and figurative uses of the word.

    How Can our Word Lists Help You Beyond the GRE?

    The goal of entrance exams, like the GRE, is to anticipate the test-taker's likelihood of success in the field into which they seek entry. Thus, the “long view” of mastering sophisticated vocabulary is that doing so will not only help you prepare for the GRE®, but will simultaneously prepare you for what lies ahead: comprehending, analyzing, and evaluating graduate-level materials and writing with the complexity and sophistication expected of a graduate-level student. To put it simply: a fully-functioning, high-level vocabulary is the key to success in your graduate experience. Prepare for success Now!

    Saving Apollo by Valerie Ogden (Anaphora Literary Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: Saving Apollo: Born into misery in Syria, gruesomely injured in Iraq, clandestinely transferred to Lebanon, rejected by service members asking to adopt him in the US, Apollo never gives up. Saving Apollo is a parable for all ages about a forsaken dog who always opens his heart and turns darkness into light as he searches for a permanent home and country. While one simple animal, Apollo’s experiences symbolize something larger than himself. His story offers a powerful message of hope and an upbeat remedy for despair.


    Valerie Ogden: As past chairperson of the Mayor’s Animal Advisory Committee for the City of Philadelphia and president of the Board of Directors for the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Valerie Ogden, actress/author, was asked to greet non-commissioned war dogs flying in from Beirut, Lebanon as they were reunited with their US service owners in Philadelphia. Apollo was one of the dogs. After this Brave Heart’s American dream turned into one nightmare after another, he ended up living with her permanently. Website: www.saving-apollo.com.


    Saving Apollo is a heart wrenching but uplifting story of war, courage, and hope. This gripping account of a dog’s astounding adventures and survival spans continents and political chess games. Apollo, the canine hero, teaches us that persistence and the joy of life will see us through even the worst of catastrophes. The narrative highlights that incredible and very special bond between dogs and humans.” —Edward G. Rendell, former Governor of Pennsylvania and former Mayor and District Attorney of Philadelphia.


    Saving Apollo is a page turner about a maltreated dog that always finds the best in any situation. It is also a warm and joyful tale about humanity coming together to save a very deserving life. This is a lesson in compassion and healing, and an inspiration for the future generation of animal rescuers.” —Meredith Ayan, Executive Director, The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals International.


    “A moving experience about the courage and endurance of an animal with an unstoppable will to live. Having rescued my own dog from Syria, Saving Apollo brings such engaging detail to the strength of these animals and is tough to put down.” —Daniel Rindone, U.S. Army Ranger. Deployed to Syria 2017.


    “Packed with its vivid characters and dramatic incidents, the book is a touching reminder that goodness can be found when you least expect it. I knew Apollo well at BETA and his spirited portrayal is deeply affecting.” —Helena Hesayne, founder of Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (BETA).


    “A touching tale about my remarkably heroic patient, Apollo. I wept and laughed as I read his engrossing story as he deals with the best and worst of humanity through his infinite capacity to love and thrive. The book, just like the dog, is unforgettable.” —Lauren Deahl, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Specializing in surgery at Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center (VESEC). Volunteer with animal rescue efforts.

    The Day After by Shani Roffeh (BooxAi)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: The Day After is a true story drawn from the power of human psychology and mental strength. It is a story that moves the reader to tears; a story regarding coincidence and our inability as human beings to assess the likelihood of an event occurring that deviates drastically from the normal frameworks that we are familiar with.
    Noa is a beautiful, successful, and respected attorney, a Doctor of Law, a legal author, and the former CEO of a start-up company that developed algorithms for identifying the behavior of casino players. She has conquered great heights and fulfilled her deepest dreams. She is well known in Israel, where her successes have been widely covered by the Israeli press, as well as on television and radio.
    Shai is a handsome and impressive man, happily married and the father of three children. He is an attorney who lectures on legal issues, specializing in cyber law and technology. He is accredited as an expert witness able to give professional options in his areas of expertise - international and Israeli cyber law. He has many outstanding achievements and qualities and attained senior positions despite the many difficulties he experienced as a child.
    Even though he only completed ten years of formal school education, had severe learning disabilities, and, as a child, frequently heard the sentence ‘nothing will come of you’ (a message that is engraved into his heart and soul to the present day, he completed, in a relatively short space of time,​ four degrees in computer science, law, and business administration.
    One secret is woven into both their hearts, binding them together. This secret revolves around our inability as a society to consider the possibility of an extreme, out of the ordinary event occurring. A formative event that will change the very fabric of our being and our understanding of ourselves.
    This shared secret led to a mental and physical crisis, which forced them to confront questions regarding the fundamental nature of life and to begin an extraordinary journey of self-realization into the depths of psychology and mental strength. A journey intertwined with friendship and true love.
    What are the chances of them ever meeting?

    Among the Hunted by Caytlyn Brooke (BHC Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: Award-winning author Caytlyn Brooke takes us on an exhilarating adventure into a realm of mythology, dark fantasy, foreboding creatures and magic, while redefining the nymph stereotype as they rise up against the oppression of the gods.

    Kaitaini was once wild and rebellious, more concerned with sneaking off to exotic realms than mastering her magic. But that was before.

    Before she fell in love.
    Before she met Hermes.
    Before she got her best friend killed.

    For one hundred years, she shouldered her guilt and became a true nymph warrior for Olean, eager to throw herself into any challenge, hoping death would ease her conscience.

    But when she fails to protect her sister from Zeus, she vows to do the impossible: kill an immortal. Now, a new hunt has begun. A dangerous game played not only in the ethereal realm but also on Earth. A game that puts Kait in the crosshairs of one of the most powerful gods in existence. She’ll need to protect those closest to her and battle against enraged gods and creatures if she hopes to survive.

    Will her immediate need for vengeance prove crippling? Or will she open herself up to an unlikely ally and uncover a part of herself she locked away long ago?

    Cry of the Firebird by Amy Kuivalainen (BHC Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: A firebird is reborn on the borders of Russia, a gate to a world of monsters and magic is breaking, and only a reluctant, untrained shaman stands in the way of the flood of supernatural darkness...

    Anya is still reeling from the death of her grandfather when a strange encounter at a café changes her life forever. She learns that her family has protected the gates to the Otherworld for centuries—and if she doesn’t awaken the dormant magic inside of her, the gates will collapse and both the real world and the Otherworld will be destroyed.

    Anya is joined by the legendary firebird and other mythological characters pulled from Russian and Finish folklore. Cry of the Firebird is a dark urban fantasy that dives deep into the world of magic, pitting those who would abuse it against those who would protect it.

    Anya is the only one who can save both realms. Will she finally awaken the powerful magic inside her? Or will the dark forces of the Otherworld prove to be too powerful?

    What We Carry by Kalyn Fogarty (Alcove Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: Fans of Caroline Leavitt will relish this rich, complex novel born of the author’s own loss and grief, about how one can overcome tragedy through bravery and self-discovery.

    Cassidy Morgan’s life has always followed a carefully laid track: top education, fulfilling career, and marriage to the love of her life, Owen. The next logical step was starting a family. But when a late-term miscarriage threatens to derail everything she’s worked so hard for, she finds herself questioning her identity, particularly what it means to be a mother. Unable to move past her guilt and shame, she realizes there’s more to fix than a broken heart. Grief illuminates the weaknesses in her marriage and forces her to deal with her tumultuous relationship with her own mother.

    Cassidy hopes her work as a veterinarian specializing in equine reproduction will distract her from the pain but instead finds that one of the cases she’s working on shines a spotlight on the memory of her unborn son. For once in her life, Cassidy is left untethered and wondering why she wanted to become a mother in the first place.

    Then the unexpected happens when Cassidy becomes pregnant again. But the joy over her baby is tempered by her fear of another loss as well as her increasingly troubled marriage. Now, she must decide whether to let her pain hold her back or trust that there’s still something to live for.

    What We Carry is a thought-provoking response to the author’s own miscarriage and lack of fiction surrounding the topic, that she and other women in her situation crave.

    Blood Brother: A Memoir by Susan Keller (TouchPoint Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: Blood Brother—an inspiring and nakedly honest memoir—finds hope, beauty, and meaning in the face of grave illness.

    As an athletic, fifty-five-year-old professional woman, Susan had it all—or thought she did—until the day of her shocking diagnosis with stage IV Mantle Cell Lymphoma, a rare and aggressive form of the disease. Ninety-eight percent of her bone marrow was cancerous and a heart attack or brain aneurism was imminent.

    Within minutes of being admitted to the hospital, her former life was wiped out and she became a diagnosis, lab values, and a course of treatment. She experienced visions so lucid and beautiful that she imagined she might be looking into the foyer of death or a magnificent afterlife. During treatment, she barely survived a psychotic drug reaction and blood poisoning.

    After grueling months of inpatient chemo most of the cancer was gone, but her one shot at survival was to undergo a stem cell transplant. The problem: her only possible donor was Johnny, her brilliant, off-the-grid brother who hadn’t been seen or heard from in thirty years. Finding him was nothing short of miraculous.

    Blood Brother is the story of curing an incurable cancer and of the enigmatic events that led to finding a man who never wanted to be found. It also explores why he disappeared, acceptance of what can and cannot be changed, and discovering what it means to forgive.

    The illness, the search, and the reunion with Johnny all proved life changing. Blood Brother is a life-affirming story of hope against all odds. It’s also a moving tale of rebuilding a family and of how to live fully when life hands you a profoundly generous second chance

    May Day by Emma Coleman (NewCon Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: May is just seventeen when the factory goes up, killing her parents and her sister in their home. In a split second, she has been rendered an orphan.

    The war is at its height and May has no option but to relocate to the country, moving in with her father’s sister, a strict church-going woman who never did approve of May’s mum nor her heathen ways. Despite Aunt Celia’s disapproval, May continues to practice the superstitions her mum drummed into her.

    Until the one time she doesn’t; at which point something dark and deadly arises and proceeds to invade her life, determined to claim her as its own...

    “A truly original tale of terror, founded on a vivid sense of period and place and in traditions that feel both occult and uncannily familiar.” – Ramsey Campbell

    “Full of uniquely nihilistic verve and eerie vision. In this tale Emma Coleman’s gorgeously classic writing racks up to a terrible tension, attaining nerve-racking pace. Blood spills as the bleak collides with the beautiful. A novella richly worth an award.” – Ian Watson

    A gripping stand-alone novella, available as a pdf, mobi or epub file.

    Christ in Camp and Combat: Religious Work in the Confederate Armies by Dennis L. Peterson (TouchPoint Press)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

    Description: Religion has too often been relegated to the far periphery of the history of the War Between the States, eclipsed by the emphases on the battles, tactics, and personalities of the conflict. In reality, religion was the very marrow of who Americans were. Religion, specifically traditional and evangelical Christianity, was the very foundation of Southern society during the antebellum period, and that spiritual emphasis permeated society during the war.

    When the war came, ministers and Christian laymen alike were burdened for the spiritual welfare of the generation of warriors who answered their country’s call to defend their homelands and who were fated to give their lives for its honor and preservation. A plethora of volunteers from every denomination of Protestant Christianity, as well as from among Roman Catholicism and Judaism, became chaplains, missionaries, and colporteurs. Their mission was to help the soldiers avoid the negative temptations of a life away from the positive influences of home,church, and community and to prepare them for the real possibilities of death and gruesome wounds. They not only encouraged them to prepare for eternity but also to accept the ultimate defeat of the Confederacy as God’s will.

    This book is the story of those Christian heroes, spiritual soldiers in a spiritual conflict amidst the raging winds of earthly warfare.
