Passage on a Bridge

by William Cheevers


It is 1935. Jim Hoffman, 19 years old with no future, leaves his hometown in search of adventure on the rails and finds instead an awakening and enduring friendship in the midst of tragedy.


"In those days I seemed to be watching a fork in the road always moving away." This is Jim languishing in a small Appalachian town once known for coal mines. One afternoon he stops by the local train station diner where a chance encounter with Jacks Mackenzie, a prep school dropout, sets in motion an odyssey of self-discovery and friendship.

Riding the rails with Jacks and a Texas panhandle Irishman named Murph O'Connor, Jim is thrust into the heart of hard times - the innocent, the displaced, the disillusioned, the deranged, the idealistic, the unscrupulous, those who endured and those who could not. Here is Jim's memoir of his education in the classrooms of boxcars, rail yards and transient camps, agricultural fields and penny auctions, a Mexican cantina, Cajun cafes and long talks into the night. He has sought adventure and finds much more.

Playhouses: Sexuality and Fundamentalism

by Sherry Scott


Three cousins fiercely defended their roles within the sanctity of their playhouses. But a six-year stint in a fundamentalist religious organization thwarted Scott's developing understanding of sexual orientation. Homosexuality was an insidious, infective spirit that conferred fear upon her adolescent naivete, eventually eroding the relationship with her cousins.

"Reconciling who we were took years, but survival led to relational ties without fear and a heart for activism in the face of rising institutionalized discrimination."

Playhouses is a journey from corrosive indoctrination to celebrating the differences in others.

The Night People: Sam and Jade's Alien Adventures

by C.S. Hand


Are aliens real--and here on Earth? Sam doesn't 
want to believe it, but if they're visiting him at night, what choice does he have?

The Night People have been visiting Sam for ten years, since he was five.

Sam is the definition of a teen loner. Jade is smart and outgoing. She wants a boy-girl friendship with Sam. Just a simple friendship. But Sam is afraid to have friends, because of the Night People. They appear to be aliens, and if people know he sees them, they'll think he's crazy. Jade convinces him they should become partners and investigate these mysterious beings.

The Night People's actions are straight out of a sci-fi mystery. But what are they doing in a small Midwestern town? What do they want with Sam and Jade? And how do two ordinary teens end up being harassed by an army officer? Or stranded in an underground military base? Or in Area 51?

Sam and Jade are already dealing with teen issues--anger, bullying, abuse, and trust (or lack of it). Will their new friendship survive these challenges and lead to something more? Will they discover who the aliens are and what they want?

What reviewers are saying about 
The Night People:

  • ... a fast-paced adventure that kept me on the edge of my seat ...
  • ... relatable characters and compelling world-building ...
  • ... a style that is both compelling and haunting ...

*Trigger warning: This book contains several instances of child (teen) abuse.

New Orders (A Space Adventure Book 1)

by Ell Leigh Clarke


The year on the human home world calendar is 2220.

Life is a bit like the sci-fi shows of the 20th Century in some ways.

In others? Not so much.

I'm on a League of Civilizations star ship. Yep. Star Ship. In space.

Currently trying to physically, and emotionally, recover from a crash where I lost my partner. All would be going fine except we also have to survive an encounter with the deadliest lifeform in the universe.

A lifeform we were starting to think was just legend.

No big deal.

If it were just about the lives on board that would be one thing. But it’s not. What we do next will impact everyone, in all the League civilizations. That’s hundreds of billions of sentients. They could all be wiped out.

I’m running out of options.

And time.

Oh yeah, and as if dealing with trying to save everyone in the universe wasn’t enough, I also have to contend with a crush on the ship’s first officer who also happens to be… yes, you guessed it, a synthetic life form.

Fuck my life.

Surviving either of these things intact is going to be a challenge.

The Anonymous Scribe: An Unputdownable Historical Mystery (The Vatican Chronicles Book 2)

by Diane Cummings


When the lie is two thousand years old, who, exactly, will the truth set free?


While analyzing parchment fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls, grad student Susan Bauer pieces together text that indicates the existence of a stolen Secret Temple Scroll that was penned decades before the gospels. If discovered, this document could free the Jewish people from the centuries’-long blemish that they are responsible for Yeshua’s death.


It could also turn Christianity on its head.

From the basement of the Israeli Museum to a basilica in a picturesque French village to the ruins of Herculaneum, ex-Mossad Yigael Dorian and blacklisted archaeologists Valentina Vella and Erika Simone journey on a transcontinental chase, dodging thieves, kidnappers, cardinals, and enlisting mobsters to uncover the truth behind this rumored scroll.
It is the writer of this document, however, who has the final word in a mesmerizing depiction of life in the Galilee alongside Yeshua.

The Mystery of Julia Episcopa, comes Book II in the Vatican Chronicles series: The Anonymous Scribe

The Road to Farringale: Modern Magick, 1

by Charlotte E. English


Can British magick be saved? Hell yes.


Imagine modern Britain without magick.

No fae enclaves. No flying chairs. No magick wands. Giddy gods, no 
unicorns.

Who wants to live in that world?

Me neither. But with magick on the decline, that's the world we're ending up with.

Meet the Society for Magickal Heritage. Our boss is a disembodied voice. Our headquarters is a sentient house. You could say we've a vested interest in keeping magick alive.

Can a ragtag bunch of magicians, necromancers and fae prevail against inevitable ruin and decline?

Hell yes. Try and stop us.

First mission? Find the source of a magickal disease that’s decimating Britain’s troll enclaves — and fix it. Simple.

Or... maybe not. For the only place that might hold the information we need is the ancient and inconveniently lost enclave of Farringale...


Join Cordelia “Ves” Vesper and the enigmatic Society in the fight to save modern magick! Urban fantasy with attitude — and fantastic hair.

Unconventional: A Memoir of Entrepreneurism, Politics, and Pot

by Jamie Andrea Garzot


An inspirational story about taking a chance, following your vision, and thriving in one of the US’s wildest emerging industries, 2022 Independent Press Award Distinguished Favorite Unconventional profiles Jamie Andrea Garzot’s journey as one of California’s legal cannabis industry pioneers.

Jamie Andrea Garzot was one of the least likely people to become a cannabis entrepreneur, advocate, and industry pioneer. She had no business background. She was not involved in politics. She had only a four-figure capital investment to start with. And, surprisingly, she had very limited experience with cannabis products. So how did Garzot find herself at the forefront of California’s cannabis movement?

In this inspirational memoir, Garzot describes her trajectory from a cannabis retail rookie navigating an unregulated market to a cannabis authority. During her time in the industry, she developed a wildly successful line of artisanal edibles, managed $12 million a year in all-cash sales, and became an advocate for cannabis legislation at the state capitol—all of which led to an eventual acquisition by High Times, one of the most recognized names in the industry. From office intrigues, personal crises, and shifting regulations to teamwork, innovation, and community leadership, Garzot, with good-natured humor, shares how thinking creatively, planning ahead, and forming connections in the most unlikely places contributed to her success in a continually shifting business landscape.

Unconventional is the story of an industry in its wild heyday, the inner workings of local and state government and cannabis’s dicey road to regulation, and the seismic changes in the way cannabis was distributed and sold. But it is also the story of one woman’s tenacious spirit and all the lessons she learned the hard way—by refusing to give power to fear, taking risks, building community in a volatile environment, and listening to what people wanted—and how staying true to her vision paid off every step of the way.

Anyone who has ever dreamed of following their gut and reinventing their life will be inspired by Garzot’s unusual and unconventional journey.
