Becca Meister Fitzpatrick―wife, mother, grandmother, and pillar of the community―is the dutiful steward of her family’s iconic summer tradition . . . until she discovers her recently deceased husband squandered their nest egg. As she struggles to accept that this is likely her last season in Long Harbor, Becca is inspired by her granddaughter’s boldness in the face of impending single-motherhood, and summons the courage to reveal a secret she was forced to bury long ago: the existence of a daughter she gave up fifty years ago. The question now is how her other daughter, Rachel―with whom Becca has always had a strained relationship―will react.

Eden is the account of the days leading up to the Fourth of July weekend, as Becca prepares to disclose her secret and her son and brothers conspire to put the estate on the market, interwoven with the century-old history of Becca’s family―her parents’ beginnings and ascent into affluence, and her mother’s own secret struggles in the grand home her father named “Eden.”

Escape to Clown Town

General Sharaya touched Duchess’ dark brown hair as she lay weak and dying on the cold stone floor of their jail cell. The dark star Epsilon Eridani finally succeeded in taking her star stone. Duchess has yet to learn that General Sharaya is her cousin and that she herself is Faree.

18 year old Duchess is a simple village girl that has no idea that she is at the center of the most epic war of the ages that is soon to come. Duchess tries desperately to escape her village upbringing and dreams of becoming a dancer in the famous Royal Clown Ballet. Duchess has not been told the truth about her royal fairy lineage and falls victim to a universal plot; conjured by the dark star Epsilon Eridani. The clowns easily ensnare Duchess by seducing her with the life she’s always dreamed of.

After Duchess escapes her kidnapper, she wakes up in the grandest room she has ever been in. When she gets up to look out of her window, she realizes that she is in the Grand Clown Plaza Hotel located in the center of Clown Town. King Clownington quickly learns of Duchess’ arrival to Clown Town and immediately plots with Epsilon on how to extract her star stone. Epsilon learned from killing many fairies that star stones must be freely given in order to retain their power and cannot be extracted under duress. King Clownington orders his son Jax to court Duchess and the entire clown family does all that they can to trick Duchess into sacrificing her stone.

Duchess falls in love with the king’s son but starts to grow suspicious when she tries to leave Clown Town and is not able to. General Sharaya sends Duchess a seemingly cryptic message about the clowns that Duchess fails to understand, until it’s too late. With the universe on the brink of a war that has the power to penetrate space and time, will Duchess become trapped by her hatred of the clowns or freed by her new found destiny?

Wanted, the Chase Ryder series Book 1


The award-winning creator & screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones, The Defenders) brings you an action-packed thrill-ride in her debut novel readers unanimously raved about, describing it as a “MUST-READ” and “UNPUTDOWNABLE”. If you loved Dean Koontz’s Watchers, Marvel movie Logan and heroines like Maximum Ride, you will love The Chase Ryder Series.

The first time I saw him, I had no idea he was created in a lab.

I’d been living on the streets for around eight months before I lost count. It wasn’t easy, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home. In all that time, unable to trust anyone, I had been alone (I knew from experience that people always failed you). Then one day, while out searching for food, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked.

It wasn’t a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn’t a normal dog – he was crazy intelligent. I’m talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn.

The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would’ve been the end of our story if we hadn’t been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully’s clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe…

Even if it meant risking my own life.

Did you love how awesome Katniss (The Hunger Games) was? How, despite being so scared, she risked her life to save her loved ones?
Did you root for Eleven (Stranger Things), who was tortured then hunted for her special abilities?
How about Ellie and Joel (The Last of Us) or Logan and Laura (Logan) – did you love their relationship?
Do you like characters who feel so real, that they leap off the page?
And dogs. Do you love reading stories with a dog as a main character?
If you love all this and more, and you’re looking for an original story, one that will make you both laugh and cry, then you should try Wanted.

Lies She Told

From the author of the USA Today bestselling novel, The Widower’s Wife, comes an electrifying story of love and deceit.

As stresses weigh her down in her professional and personal lives, Liza escapes into writing the chilling exploits of her latest heroine, Beth.

Beth, a new mother, suspects her husband is cheating on her while she’s home caring for their newborn.

Before her deadline is up, Liza will have to face up to the truths about the people around her, including her own. If she doesn’t, the end of her heroine’s story could be the end of her own.

The Animated Marx Brothers

To many people, The Marx Brothers always seemed cartoonish. Small wonder that film animators plucked their personas from their first appearances in The Cocoanuts (1929) and Animal Crackers (1930) and caricatured them in countless animated appearances in theatrical cartoons. Their animated likenesses have since been wisecracking in television cartoons, direct-to-video movies, fan films, commercials, flip books, avatars, emoji, a slot machine, and two TV pilots so rare they were once thought not to exist.

At last, Marx Brothers fans can rejoice. Matthew Hahn’s search for every animated appearance of a Marx brother has trailed longer than Groucho’s coattails. His discoveries include the backstories of the studios, moviemakers, and stars, rare test drawings from the Smithsonian Institution National Portrait Gallery, abandoned projects, connections, coincidences, and apocrypha.

The Devil And The Muse

An ancient curse.

A forgotten love.

A painting with secrets only one woman can reveal.

In this fast-paced second installment of The Creatives Series, Creative (mystic artist) Coco Rhodes is surprised by a horrific vision beneath her most recent painting: the violent attack upon a fragile young girl. When a link is discovered between an education-finance fraud and several girls disappearing from Washington, D.C. schools, Coco’s lover and leader of the Allegiance, the vampire-warlock Gabriel, vows to rescue the girls, and topple a corrupt congressman. Concurrently, the dark and twisted past of Kenan, the Allegiance’s sworn enemy, is revealed. With Kenan’s whereabouts unknown, members of the Allegiance begin to unravel his sadistic plan.

From New York and D.C., to Tuscany and the Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy, the supernatural guardians of the Allegiance are guided by both the lessons of history and the shocks of present-day life. Through magical twists and otherworldly subplots, this supernatural thriller weaves a web of intrigue, love, and conflict. In The Devil and the Muse, Coco’s sense of duty to the Allegiance is tested. But will protecting her loved ones cause her to sacrifice her humanity?


Mennonite farm boy Lance Roark’s faith is as big as the challenges he faces on his family’s drought-ravaged Dust Bowl spread on the old Chisholm Trail. He can also run over, around, and away from people on the football field and is a natural-born aviator. These abilities lead him to college gridiron glory and bring him into contact with famed aviators Charles Lindbergh and Wiley Post, entertainment icons Will Rogers and Bing Crosby, best-selling young author John F. Kennedy, and President Franklin Roosevelt.

As war clouds gather across the seas, Lance finds romance first with teenaged Chickasaw cowgirl and stunt flying sensation Sadie Stanton, then with beautiful oil heiress Mary Katherine Murchison, whose mesmerizing voice carries her to the heights of Big Band Era stardom. Nearly all of this crashes against his pious, peaceable ways. And it leads him into the dangerous world of America First, the Lindbergh-led organization that opposes the popular Roosevelt’s covert drive toward American involvement in World War II, now ablaze in both Europe and the Pacific.

When the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor, Lance, with his lifelong commitment never to raise his hand against another human being, faces his ultimate decision—whether to accept command of a B-17 Flying Fortress in which he would face, and inflict, mass slaughter in Nazi-occupied Europe amidst history’s most fearsome war.
