[]Blue Moon by C.D. Ledbetter

Romantic Mystery/Suspense, ebook and paperback

Mary Corbett's calm, orderly existence is shattered the moment she sets foot on an old, run-down Louisiana plantation. Even though she's never been there before, she recalls details about the house that only someone who actually lived in it would know. If that weren’t bad enough, she finds that her attraction to the other curator, Jack Windom, hasn’t lessened since they last worked together. In fact, as they spend time together on the estate, she realizes she’s falling in love with him. Unfortunately for her, he’s already spoken for.

When she and Jack attend a Blue Moon Voodoo ceremony, she has a "clear-sighted vision" about the former owners, both of whom mysteriously disappeared over a hundred years ago. Even though she's never been psychic, she continues to "see" bits and pieces of their lives. Shortly thereafter, the ghostly apparition of the former mistress, Magdalene Laroussard, appears to her and begs for help. When Magdalene continues to ask for help, Mary realizes what she has tried all along to deny—that she is somehow tied to this house and to Jack. She makes up her mind to not only buy the run-down plantation and turn it into a bed and breakfast, but to also solve the mystery of what happened to Jean-Pierre and Magdalene Laroussard.

Her determination to find the key to their disappearance is fraught with danger. When she learns that members of a local Voodoo cult have vowed to protect her from harm, she can't help but wonder who's going to protect her from them.

[]Breaking the Chain by C.D. Ledbetter

Mystery/Suspense, ebook and paperback

Some paths are destined to cross again...

You would think that after helping a ghost find peace by solving a hundred-year-old mystery and thwarting a murderess' plans, Mary Corbett's life as an estate curator would settle back into a normal routine. Well, one can always wish...

At the moment, things couldn't be better. Not only is she married to her beloved Jack, but her dream of owning a bed and breakfast has come true, thanks to the help of her very rich, but snotty Aunt Elizavon. Now that the Blue Moon Inn is open, there's just one thing left for Mary to do—invite Sadie and Justine, the two elderly women who served as the plantation's former housekeepers, back for a visit.

What Mary doesn't know is that Sadie, the elderly Voodoo priestess who predicted the series of events that brought Mary and Jack together, is also searching for her. But Sadie's reasons are much more pressing—she's started having visions again, and this time they're worse than before.

After Sadie arrives, Mary starts having ESP flashes of her own. Why is she seeing ghosts again, and how is her life tied to the "brown man" that Sadie's so afraid of? What kind of trouble is he destined to bring, and worse yet, how does Sadie know he's going to visit the inn?

[]Jingle of Coins

Romantic Suspense, ebook

The sound was unlike anything she’d ever heard. Was the slot machine broken or...

While recuperating from a devastating automobile accident, Emily Sane discovers she has the ability to walk into any casino and tell which slot machine is going to pay off. Her heightened sense of hearing—a direct result of her accident—actually allows her to detect the subtle change in pitch of the reels as they line up for the winning combination.

After testing her theory in local casinos and nearly going to jail for suspected cheating, Emily moves to Las Vegas to cash in on her talent before it disappears. On paper, her plan sounds like a winner. Move to Vegas, get a day job to cover the fact that she’s hitting jackpots in every single casino, win the million dollar jackpot, then split. In actuality, however, what she she gets is a dead neighbor on her doorstep, an attraction to a man she’s not sure she can trust, blackmail, involvement in a Secret Service investigation, and a contract put out on her life.

Emily’s determination to use her talent to win the biggest slot jackpot takes her down a path with only two possible outcomes: more money than she ever dreamed possible, or death by the hand of a professional hit man.

[]The Huntress by Michelle O'Leary

Romantic Sci-Fi, ebook and paperback

The Hunter:
Traumatized at a young age by the violent death of her parents, Mea Brin becomes a Hunter, part of an elite policing force of the Planetary Coalition. She is the best of the best, ruthless and predatory on a hunt and driven by the memory of violence. But then she meets Seth Terrik, an escaped convict, and Regan Freya, a child recently orphaned. The pair make an impression on Mea that she can’t ignore—she feels a deep empathy for the girl and in Terrik she sees reflections of herself. Her choices seem limited—duty demands that she capture the escapee and turn the child over to the proper authorities. But Mea is not one to allow duty to define her. She creates a new choice.

The Convict:
Seth Terrik has spent more than half of his life in prison. All that he knows or cares about is survival and the fight for freedom until a trusting girl becomes his responsibility and a seductive Hunter offers him what looks like a second chance at life. The simple rules of his existence become much more complicated as he is forced to redefine the concepts of survival and freedom. What does a hardened criminal like him know of trust or love? Is he even capable of stepping beyond instinct and into human emotion?

[]Angels and Ministers of Grace by Michelle O'Leary

Romantic Sci-Fi

Anya Vaedrin is a woman of extraordinary talents. A singer by trade, she has earned the nickname Angel with her voice, her white hair, and deep blue eyes—and a secret. In a time when telepaths hold positions of power and empaths are their weak discards, Anya is an explosive mix of the two talents. Able to both read emotions and cause others to feel anything she wishes, from joy to fear and pleasure to pain, Anya is a new breed that the telepaths would give anything to possess—or destroy. Pursued to the ends of human occupied space by a telepathic assassin, Anya has one last hope of safety before she must brave alien territory. Far Reach Station is known for its liberal policies towards alien species, but would they give sanctuary to one of their own when she is wanted by the Telepath Guild? Anya's prospects seem grim when she is confronted by Jason Salvatore, the surly second in command of the station. And Captain Marta Jamison makes the station a dubious refuge when it becomes clear that she has an agenda all her own.

Suddenly plagued by feelings he’d thought long dead, he knew this creature before him was his destiny. Vowing to make her his own, he laid claim to her essence, body, and immortal soul.

[]The Surrogate Who Cleaned Up by Karen Laven

Romance Parody

It's not easy being Dali Wright. Her career as head usher for the Gurthrie Theatre is a far cry from the directorial position she longs to hold. She knows she must further her education in order to place her well-toned rear into one of those high canvas chairs with her name emblazoned upon the back. But the truth of the matter is, Dali simply doesn't have the funds to go back to school, and as if that's not enough to bear, she is rapidly approaching her peak childbearing time. Toss in a nonexistent love life for this blonde, perfect physical specimen (except for a nose that stubbornly veers to the right) and the desperation of Dali's situation mounts. No terrific career, no boyfriend, no children—no way to live, she decides.

It is in the midst of this turmoil, Dali spies a classified ad from Blade and Daisy Dafner (a wealthy, unhappily married, but gorgeous couple) searching for a housecleaner and surrogate mother in one. Despite her best friend's arguments against the preposterous idea, Dali finds herself living and scrubbing within the lap of luxury—while at the same time watching her own lap expand. As the tale unfolds, Blade and Dali uncover an undeniable attraction for each other, while Daisy maintains her frequent "physical" appointments with Dr. Dynk.

Will Dali find the success and happiness she craves? Will Daisy and Blade continue to live a matrimonial sham? Will our heroine ever reach her dream of directing Jim Neighbors on stage? Read The Surrogate Who Cleaned Up, and you will uncover the answers to these questions and perhaps learn some handy household hints in the process!

If you love the romance genre, if you hate the romance genre—you'll love The Surrogate Who Cleaned Up.

[]Aneesha's Prophecy by Darlene Duncan

Lesbian Sci-Fi Sequel

The daughter will return and avenge the death of her mother
and those innocents killed here today.

Dorak Deanna has come home to claim her birthright. Home, to a planet she remembers only through the implanted memories of her mother, Miktra. Home to a planet still occupied by the same Empyrean forces that forced her departure nearly thirty years ago.

The Day of Ascension is fast approaching and the Empyrean Governor of Nedamla grows more fearful of Aneesha’s Prophecy with each passing day. Especially since each day seems to bring another unexplained, violent death of at least one of this soldiers. Yet the Empyror refuses his requests for more troops, assuring him that since Aneesha’s child was killed during the invasion, there is no heir to ascend to the throne.

By accident Deanna discovers she has the ability to communicate, with at least one Nedamlan, by using only her thoughts. Is it possible that there are others among her people with this ability? Perhaps it will be the secret weapon she needs.

Even with the ability to mind-talk, how can one woman turn a population of women, known for their pacifism, into warriors? And if she and her warriors take Nedamla from the troops now occupying her, how will they maintain their freedom? The Empyror has more than enough troops to simply send another invasion force.

As if fighting the Empyre weren’t enough to worry about, Deanna has another problem–she has fallen in love.

Will Deanna fulfill Aneesha’s Prophecy? Can she return her people to a time when they were fierce warriors, asking no quarter and giving none? Will Jorsta agree to join with her?

[]Everything You Need to Know About Being a Woman Can Be Learned in the Garden by Patricia Fish

Inspirational Humor

Meet the Hillery Beach Garden Club, a group of middle-aged, suburban women…

When they hear that Dr. Ruth Wizenheimer, appearing on the Sally Jesse O'Donnell show, advises women that onion rings, tossed in horseshoe fashion, can make for fun sex play, the ladies are disgruntled. From there, the women realize that they are fed up with feminine self-help books and female advice gurus—Rosie Winfrey, Dr. Joyce Sisters, Martha Showoff—the lot of them. They decide that only those with some experience should be dispensing such advice. With their combined wisdom of 1,070 years, they are sure that they know it all and begin to compose the ultimate self-help book.

The Garden Club begins each thoughtful chapter with a story/vignette from their own ecogardens that—according to them—illustrates the chapter subject. Then they present the highlights of their chapter discussions for the reader to digest and to become—so the women assume—a more enlightened female. The women wrap up each chapter with a brief summary of their conclusions which does not—to the surprise of the reader—quite align with the chapter subject.

As readers delve into the stories of dogs, cats, flowers, squirrels, birds, and humans, they will also become immersed in the interesting little dramas and personalities of the Hillery Beach Garden Club itself. The reader will be most amused as the women attempt to bring their book to fruition against all odds.

While the stories of the ecogarden prove heartwarming and most enlightening, it is the funny and insightful discussions of the women which provide an even greater wisdom.

If your soul needs Chicken Soup, Everything You Need to Know About Being a Woman Can Be Learned in the Garden is most certainly the stock!

She is the paternal grandmother of Debra, who tells her story in Peaches and Cream. This is not the usual, childhood memories story, however. It is not a story of "rags to riches," nor one of a talented and driven young person who succeeds beyond her wildest dreams. It is the story of an average girl, one you may have known in your past, and certainly a girl you would like to know. It is does not relay events of astounding and unusual magnitude nor present a lifestyle one might aspire to but never hope to attain. It is simply a humorous and sometimes touching story of an interesting but very real-to-life family. It is a story about people you would like to know and call your friends.

[]Chocolate Days & Shadows by Bonnie Doss

Creative Autobiography

Chocolate Days & Shadows is an autobiography, and yet…

Chocolate Days & Shadows is about you. You are the abused child, of any age, any creed, any color. You are the mentally, sexually, physically abused child. You are the battered, bruised, bewildered child. You are a victim.

Chocolate Days & Shadows is by you. Your body crawls into the skin, the very soul of an abused child of an alcoholic parent. Your eyes reflect the pain. Your gut radiates the pain. Your lungs forget to exhale. Your heart writes the story.

Chocolate Days & Shadows is for you. You are a seeker. You cry out for help and the people, places, and resources appear in your life. You climb the soul-searching ladder of the recovery process, one rung, one day at a time. You discover that the essence of healing is love. You walk hand-in-hand with the Spirit. You love yourself.

You are the gentle, loving child of our Creator.
If you are an abused child, empower.
If you know an abused child, help.

[]Throwing Sticks and Skipping Stones by Gloria MacKay


Gloria MacKay has thrown many sticks in her life, and skipped lots of stones—or at least tried. It is hard not to, loving as she does the mist enfolded, water wrapped Pacific Northwest

As a writer and broadcaster of commentaries and articles, she broadens her base and throws as far as she can at whatever pops in her head: she skips from magic to politics; from recipes to baseball; from men, women, and children to time marching on.

Throwing Sticks and Skipping Stones is a collection of her most entertaining, thought-provoking work. Unlike the stones she tries to skip at water's edge, these essays are as on the mark as a dart in a bull's eye.

As you read Throwing Sticks and Skipping Stones feel free to laugh; this is how a girl throws, and Gloria MacKay wouldn't have it any other way.

[]I Never Held You by Ellen M. DuBois


Who are we? We are professionals in the workforce or professional mothers. We are painters and singers. We are caretakers and we are movie stars. Some of us may have children; while some of us don't. The one thing that connects us all is that we are women who experienced a miscarriage that seemed, in many cases, to go unacknowledged by many. We have all felt the dismissal of our very real grief and we have all felt alone and isolated because of it. We cry our tears together. You are not alone in your struggle to get through this…

Ms. DuBois poignantly tells of her own miscarriage, outlines steps toward recovery, and provides online support resources.

[]The Book: A Primer for Seekers of Higher Consciousness by Bonnie Elaine Doss

New Age, ebook and paperback

The Book exposes the arcane—the most awesome secrets known to man. From The Beginning, the serious seeker is a perpetual student of life, living in harmony with all creations and honoring the immutable laws of nature. The Key unlocks timeless wisdom through proven processes deliberately designed to develop latent abilities and awaken the sleeping consciousness. After correct training in powers of observation, The Door shall only open to seekers possessing patience, perseverance, and potentiality. Behind the door, lies The Path leading toward your Greater Self.

If you yearn for self-transformation to a higher intellectual, emotional, and spiritual level, boldly step upon the path and allow Aureole and Avatar to act as your trusted guides. They will shine further light into your life during The Journey and assist you in building a strong foundation that the winds of change cannot crack. They will show you how to adopt the laws of opposites into your everyday existence and teach you to intuitively recognize Truth.

Beware and be aware that only a chosen few take the quantum leap into esoterica, escape the material world, and enter into The Gap where all becomes seeable and viewable in its purest state. Unique, indeed, are seekers who arrive at The Destination, which is objective consciousness.

At the destination, you commit to Work.
If you correctly perform The Work...
If you possess purity of intent...
If you harm none by word or deed...
If you fearlessly fly into the unknown...
Energy is set into motion that will manifest the miraculous!
