By Shawn McGuire
Occult Suspense
Regular Price: $4.99  Sale Price: $0.99

If you knew you could catch a killer, would you?

Tucked next to a pristine lake, the part-Medieval Europe, part-Renaissance Faire hamlet ofWhispering Pines is a utopia . . . except for the recent murders.

One month after arriving in the Northwoods, former detective Jayne O'Shea has settled comfortably into small-town life and is making good progress with her task of getting her grandparents' house ready for sale. Then the shocking death of one of the carnies rocks the community, and the villagers look to Jayne for help, placing her in an impossible middle ground of not wanting to get involved and needing to ensure justice is served.

When a second carney turns up dead, and the newly hired sheriff--more concerned with ticketing tourists than catching the killer--dismisses the death as an accident, Jayne has no choice but to step in. Can she uncover the truth before the murderer strikes again?

What price is beyond reason for revenge?

From behind the barred windows of his cell, that's exactly what John Cook must decide after helplessly witnessing the brutal execution of his proud father and his beloved mother.

A disheveled man with eyes the color of sunset and swathed in Victorian clothes matted with earth makes an offer John cannot possibly reject. John's heart stops beating and a new unlife begins.

Fast forward five hundred years to modern-day Houston, and we find our antihero working with an unlikely ally, Father Thomes. Together, they work toward using John's abilities for the light in an effort to bleach his blackened soul. If it means he gets to exsanguinate a few badies in horrific, imaginative ways without further damning himself . . . well, you know what they say about doing what you love.

Hindsight: Coming of age on the streets of Hollywood
By Sheryl Recinos
Regular Price: $9.99  Sale Price: $2.99

Kirkus Review: "The fact that her story has a surprisingly happy ending (as the initials “MD” after her name on the memoir’s cover attest) does little to blunt the sting that this gritty narrative of homelessness and young womanhood leaves in its wake."

Hindsight: Coming of age on the streets of Hollywood walks you through Sheryl's harsh upbringing and takes you on a journey with her as she struggles to survive as a homeless teen. This book will give you a glimpse into what it is like to feel unheard, unseen, and unloved; and it will reveal the impact of caring adults on traumatized youth.

In Sight of the Mountain
By Jamie McGillen
Young Adult Historical Fiction
Regular Price: $4.99  Sale Price: $0.99

In the devastating aftermath of the 1889 Great Seattle Fire, nineteen-year-old Anna Gallagher faces considerable pressure to marry well and soon. But she has no intention of giving up her freedom to keep house. She wants to be the first woman to summit Mount Rainier.

Anna's grandfather couldn't disapprove more. And after he discovers that she's befriended a Duwamish woman in the forest, he threatens to disown her completely. 

Inspired by the trailblazing women of the 19th Century who dared to summit Mount Rainier, In Sight of the Mountain is a charming coming-of-age story, but it also casts the reader's gaze upon issues of colonialism, class, and women's far-too-narrow options.
