Enjoy My Misery: Trapped Inside My Mind

by James Roberts

Based on true events, James Roberts’ debut novel, Enjoy My Misery, is a story within a story â?? beginning with the seemingly endless struggles faced by Maria Michaels while growing up and then shifting narrative focus to the hardships of her sons, James and Jared. Readers are given the Michaels family history through the lens of both Maria and James, which brings their mother-son relationship to life on the pages. The book’s duel perspective allows for an in-depth journey through one family’s battles with depression, divorce, drug use, and death. Enjoy My Misery is just how it sounds â?? a series of unfortunate scenarios that entertain to the end, and underline that even when all else is lost, love and family ties can hold us together and keep us from losing sight of what matters most.

Roberts’ work of fiction is a must-read coming-of-age story, and what makes this Bildungsroman unique is its scope â?? by including two points of view, Enjoy My Misery reads at times like a diary full of dark family secrets and at times like a conversation with a trusted friend. Roberts completely immerses his audience in such events as police chases, cocaine binges, emergency room visits, and high school basketball tryouts. Enjoy My Misery will have you laughing, crying, and probably wanting to call your mom to tell her you love her. This work reflects, as Stephen Chbosky wrote in his The Perks of Being a Wallflower, “Even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”

Tales of the Jazz Age

by F. S Fitzgerald

A master craftsman brings one of the most fascinating periods in American history to vivid life in these provocative and poignant short stories

Born gray-haired and grumpy, Benjamin Button may be an infant, but his body and personality are those of an old man. Curiously, however, he grows younger with each passing year. Benjamin is aging backwards, which begs the question, when does a man become a man? And how do we recognize our true selves?
 
A delightful fable that poses serious inquiries about the nature of existence, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s best-known stories and the centerpiece of this legendary collection. From the Jazz Age decadence of “May Day” to the delightful fantasy of “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,” these evocative tales showcase one of the twentieth century’s greatest authors at the height of his talent.



Cautionary Tales: Voices from the Edges

by Emmanuelle de Maupassant

“We are the voices in the shadows â?¦”

Inspired by Eastern European and Russian superstitions and folklore, here are twelve tales; darkly delicious imaginings for the adult connoisseur of bedtime stories.

“Listen,

Listen with your eyes,

and your lips”

Be drawn into a world where the boundaries between the everyday and the unearthly are snakeskin-thin, where the trees have eyes and the night has talons, where demons, drawn by the perfume of human vice and wickedness, lurk with intents malicious and capricious.

“Listen with your skin

and your blood”

Here, the touching of your coat button as you pass through a graveyard can mean the difference between great fortune or eternal misfortune.

“We’re here,

at the edges.”

Tread carefully, for here the dark things best left behind in the forest may seep under your door and sup with you; the lover at your window or in your bed may have the scent of your death already on their breath.

“We are the shiver on your uneasy flesh,

The creep of the unknown on your skin.”

Whispered to you from the edges, from the haunted mouths of those who see more than you or I, here are twelve tales of lust and rivalry, of envy and deceit, and of secrets gouged from the darkest depths of the human heart.

Is your shadow on the wall,

really yours, after all?

From the vivid imagination of Emmanuelle de Maupassant, here are her Cautionary Tales – eerie, bawdy, horrific and erotic.

They’re watching.

Sinners & Social Workers

by Norah S. Bernard

Eight individuals’ lives … and deaths … overlap, as they meet again on a path on the “other side.” There each is given a “choice of fates,” guided by a variety of characters?priests and rabbis, angels and saints?and the devil himself! From the Reviewers: “With startling insight, captivating wit and enduring compassion the author populates her tale with a range of characters – all so recognizable in our own lives – from those born on the wrong side of the tracks to the silver-spoon-in-the-mouth anointed. We meet both the self-righteously pious and the devoutly ecumenical … and not to be missed is the lightly-concealed commentary on arguably the most egregious political machinations of our time.”



Tall Pine Turning

by Deborah A. Allen

*FINALIST IN THE 2016 FLORIDA ROYAL PALM LITERARY AWARDS COMPETITION!*

It is a story whose roots have grown into the headlines of today . . .

Former Army brat Joan Hoover is ecstatic when her father lands a post-military position in the “hometown” she’s never had — the picturesque Southern Georgia hamlet of Mosby.

Her hopes for a new life are shattered when she is rejected by her high school classmates, including the boys she labels “The Troop,” who taunt Joan relentlessly. After a humiliating classroom incident, a despairing Joan is suddenly — and inexplicably — taken under the wing of fellow student and Mosby native RhondaLee Garrett.

RhondaLee and her father, respected Mosby businessman Nelson Garrett, unite to help Joan and to smooth her acceptance into the community.

Late one evening, not long after the girls’ high school graduation, there is a horrible accident on the dark canopy road outside of town known as Tall Pine Turning.

In the chaotic aftermath, Joan finds herself facing a formidable decision: Keep quiet about the accident and honor the loyalty that Nelson Garrett and his family have shown her. Or risk losing all that she and her family have attained in their new home. Her decision alters Joan’s life forever, binding her even further to RhondaLee in a conspiracy of silence.

Though haunted by her guilt, Joan discovers a niche for herself in the community. As the years pass, she becomes a respected journalist, increasingly embraced and honored by her adopted hometown, and known for her dedication to the more tolerant values evolving in the South.

Years after that horrendous accident, the discovery of a piece of Mosby’s historic — and controversial — past becomes the springboard for the possible exposure of the girls’ long-held secret, forcing them to make new, more difficult, choices.

From the complacent days of the early 1970s until the dawn of a “New South” nearly two decades later, Tall Pine Turning traces the struggle of one young woman to not only deal with her guilt, but to cope with the slowly changing mores of a small Southern town, and ultimately, forcing her to question how much change has actually come about.
