Return of the Outlaw

by C.M. Curtis

#1 Bestseller

“As the Indian slipped past one of the horses, he abruptly stopped and for an instant his attention was distracted. He heard a small sound and spun around. Directly in front of him loomed a dark figure and for the tiniest instant he looked into a pair of eyes–and in those eyes he saw hell. Then, the razor-sharp steel of Lopez’ knife sent him there.”

They killed his friends, stole his ranch, and took from him the woman he loves. They branded him an outlaw, accusing him of the very crimes they committed. But they’re about to learn that taking everything away from him has turned this Civil War veteran into the most dangerous kind of man there is: The kind that has nothing left to lose. Jeff Havens has a fast gun and a long memory–and he’s back.

RETURN OF THE OUTLAW has sold thousands of copies worldwide, making it a #1 Bestseller, and readers have compared Curtis to the great western authors of old like Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, Ernest Haycox, and Luke Short.

THE M&M BOYS

by Lara Reznik

A tender tale of coming-of-age meets baseball heroes. Who wouldn’t want to be in that kid’s cleats when two of sports’ greatest legends move in next door?

In the summer of 1961 a Little League player’s joy of making the All-Star team evaporates when his father, too busy with a girlfriend, misses his triumphant opening game, and his mother spirals into a bed-ridden depression. Then, Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle move next door as they battle to break Babe Ruth’s home run record.

Based on historical facts, The M&M Boys explores the parallel lives of an embittered Maris and a self-destructive Mantle who live together incognito in a remote Queens apartment. Maris, a misplaced Midwesterner, gets booed by the Yankee fans who prefer Mantle, and the press pursue him mercilessly. Mantle, on the other hand, basks in New York fans approval, but a series of injuries destroy his hope of winning the competition. Marshall’s friendship unearths childhood memories for both men. What all three M&M Boys have in common is a good lesson in how to play the game of life, on and off the field.
