Bad Moon

by Jackie Sexton

Life can be a little complicated when… your boyfriend sucks, your best friend since elementary school is basically the man of your dreams, and a totally gorgeous rock star is pursuing you cross country and you have no idea why. Oh, and you’re kind of addicted to pizza and a full moon is around the corner.

This is my life right now. Maybe I shouldn’t have decided to go on tour with Bad Moon as their manager. Maybe I should have stayed in my hometown and looked for a marketing job with good benefits and a 401k. All I can say is that my bachelor’s degree and color-coded planner can’t protect me from the fiery throes of rock n’ roll, lust, and werewolves…and I kind of like it that way.

This 16,000+ word novella contains steamy sex between amazing adult characters (18+). Not for the faint of heart! Book One of the Bad Moon Series.Excerpt:The way he swayed his hips in slow, grinding thrusts and
cupped the microphone in his hands like he was making love to it…

I couldn’t help myself. I was completely and totally turned
on.

And I had to admit, there was something completely surreal
about it all. I didn’t even notice the time pass us by until the music was
interrupted by his speaking voice, sultry and delicious just like before.

“Thanks for being such a kickass audience,” he said into the
mic, letting out an endearing chuckle as the crowd went wild. “This next song
I’d like to dedicate to a beautiful woman I met tonight. This is for you.”

Then I swear to God, his eyes met mine before he turned to
his lead guitarist.

“Did he just look at you?” Brandon asked, his mouth nearly
pressed against my ear so that I could hear him.

 “I don’t know,” I
said, almost overcome with shock. But it seemed in possible in such a crowded,
dark place.

The song was filled with power and passion, and seized my
core, rocking me with urges I knew were completely inappropriate in a crowd of
people that big. But I couldn’t help it; the electric music was swimming through
my veins, quickening my desire with every down stroke of the rhythm guitar. It
was like trying to navigate a love charm and losing desperately.

“I want you to know

I want you, in every way,

and I wanna touch your

sweet body tonight.”

And then he raised his eyes to meet my gaze again. There was
no mistaking it this time. He was totally one-hundred percent looking at me. My
knees went weak at the thought.



The Girl Pretending to Read Rilke

by Barbara Riddle

The Girl Pretending to Read Rilke is a coming-of-age novel set in a biology lab in the summer of 1963 in Boston. Both the heroine, 19-year-old Bronwen, and America are suffering growing pains and soon all the standards of the past will be shattered as the Pill and the war in Vietnam change people’s expectations forever. A shocking telegram forces Bronwen to choose between family and the temptations of a dazzling future in science.

“Barbara Riddle has given us a sharp, funny glimpse into a little-explored moment in women’s recent history. The year is 1963, the same year Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique. Brave young women were heading out from college and looking for lives very different from those their mothers had lived. My excitement about The Girl Pretending to Read Rilke stems in part from the fact that I was there- heading for graduate school in science in 1963. I recognize Riddle’s heroine Bronwen for her spirit of adventure as well as her sometimes crippling self-doubts (carefully nourished by the all-too-realistic boyfriend-from-hell). Today’s 20-somethings will recognize her as a woman struggling, like themselves, for personal coherence in a world that still has difficulty seeing us as complete and entire human beings.”

-Barbara Ehrenreich (author, Nickel and Dimed)

Synopsis: Now that Sarah and Brian have decided to stay in Baxter Springs, they have to forget some of their big city ways that might set them apart from new hometown. No city buses, no big movie cinemas, no street lights and no 911 service. Sarah worries that Brian will grow bored and get into trouble but she has her own worries, like finding a job to support them. There isn’t much call for more waitresses in a town with one diner and a coffee shop. How will she support them so they can stay here in her home town?

Then there is the hunky sheriff who’s also new to town, Carl Pierce, who seems to be quite interested in learning more about Sarah and her son.

A contemporary romance for everyone to enjoy.

The Unlikely Savior (The Unlikely Savior Trilogy)

by T.S. Seley Elliott

Air Force Sergeant Johnnie Carter awakes bloody and disoriented in the middle of the Nevada desert. The last thing she remembers is being in route to a remote training location when her sedan crashes into a farmer’s truck. But now a total stranger swears Johnnie miraculously appeared and saved her ailing baby’s life. All Johnnie wants is to escape this personal version of the Twilight Zone, but instead, she is propelled into an unstoppable chain of events teeming with apparent miracles, all of which seem to center around her, although she is not a willing or even conscious participant.

Byron Hoffstedder believes in miracles and he also believes in Johnnie’s gift. He remembers her as a child who drifted through his hometown years before, he also knows what she did. Retired from teaching, he becomes the “Angel Tracker” for a national tabloid and he has an ulterior motive. Finally, he gets the call: a “soldier angel” named Johnnie reportedly saved a baby’s life. The story delivers far more than the teacher-turned-reporter dares to imagine. Byron’s findings validate his hopes; he resigns from the tabloid and narrows his search, stunned by the magnitude of what he finds.

Thousands of miles away and worlds apart from Johnnie or Byron, U.S. President Wing Liang is in the midst of a global political implosion. Hesitant to further the conflict with military action or sanctions, he seeks a way to save the world from itself. In short, he needs a miracle.

As she encounters an eclectic cast of characters ranging from circus workers and unspeakable criminals to space shuttle astronauts, the unlikely savior is catapulted toward her destiny. Bizarre events unveil a force of unbelievable capacity and Johnnie Carter appears to be on a rapid course to save the country, if not mankind. And in the process…she just might save herself.

From the last of the old outlaws to hippies in psychedelic school buses, from Hispanic rebellion to apocalyptic physicists who embrace the bomb, everyone is in conflict; and the world around him is literally on the verge of burning down.

Nickel Plated Gold

by Brian Bieber

An inept improvisor downplays his fake drug addiction to impress a pretty grad student. A jaded trauma surgeon laments the dearth of comedy in his workplace. A forlorn circus clown tries to convince himself he has not been made a fool by his cheating spouse.

NICKEL PLATED GOLD is populated by characters stumbling–sometimes flailing–through lives fraught with self-doubt, delusion, and absurdity. From the ludicrous pontification of “How I Would Fight Certain Animals” to the tender rumination of “Love Life,” Brian Bieber’s first collection of stories is filled with characters who are desperate to do things right, but tend to fail hilariously.

“Without a lot of fanfare or exposition, [Brian] can connect what you don’t know with what you do. He recognizes there are moments in art that should be beautiful. There are moments that should not. His swift pacing allows him to do humor successfully; his facility with tone allows him to do absurdism; but it’s his rendering of human nature that defines my favorite of his stories.”
