Things Keep Happening

by Joe Timms

Charlie was good looking, popular, and twenty three years old when he killed himself. John doesn’t know why he did it, but he’s content with avoiding that question by dulling himself with alcohol. Matthew doesn’t know either, but then again he didn’t really know Charlie, and so he hides his unwarranted grief with a new social high-life of partying and drugs. This doesn’t sit well with his sister Vanessa, who never met the dead boy but is curious as to what pushed him to suicide, identifying with some reasons herself.

As she obsesses over his death she watches Matthew lose himself in a fake identity, and John slowly self-destruct. They each find themselves acting as a life-line for the others, not realising that they are drowning too. As the three of them deal with repercussions of Charlie’s death and their own sudden mortality, they have to choose between saving each other and saving themselves.

THINGS KEEP HAPPENING is an 83000 word new-adult novel set in modern Glasgow. It is a melancholy, sarcastic novel that focuses on the period of life when you’re supposed to be considered an adult, but find yourself woefully unprepared for the harshness of the real world.



The Wheels of Justice

by T.J. Cheokas

The Wheels of Justice is a fast paced novel that provides an entertaining perspective of justice in the modern day south as seen through the eyes of a young prosecutor and a poverty stricken African-American boy. The seemingly simple yet extreme story also forces the reader to unwittingly explore the deeper question of “What is justice?” A timely novel for those debating issues surrounding the morality of the death penalty. This book has it all. The story not only provides serious insight into the criminal justice system and an exploration of the racially dividing issues that currently exist in the south but also presents nonstop entertainment by skillfully combining these serious concerns with action, suspense, humor, and romance. A modern day cross between The Outsiders and East of Eden, the novel captures the street kid personalities of the former and the witty symbolism of the latter. A book full of surprises, Wheels is a sheer pleasure to read.

The Harvester (Xist Classics)

by Gene Stratton-Porter

A Gripping Romance in a Natural Setting

If in one small degree it shows him where he can beâ?¦gentler, saner, cleaner, kindlierâ?¦it is a wonder-working book. If it opens his eyes to one beauty in nature he never saw for himself and leads him one step toward the God of the Universe, it is a beneficial bookâ?¦” â?? Gene Stratton-Porter In Gene Stratton-Porter’s novel, The Harvester, a noble and kindl man harvests wild plants for medicines.
