The Fulton Parks Scholarship Fund

by L.G. Siller

Fulton Parks, IV has grown up in privilege, but feels imprisoned in what he calls “The Big House.” His dreams of escape are dashed when he is “sentenced” to a prestigious university by his domineering father. Reluctantly, he leaves his beloved, but eccentric aunt and his wayward girlfriend. Even as his own world spins out of control Fulton tries to save the women in his life and ultimately is brought to a reckoning. Set in the urban sprawl of Houston in the late 1970’s, Fulton’s story is an irreverent and suspenseful journey filled with an odd group of misfits who help him overcome his personal demons. Funny and sad, ,The Fulton Parks Scholarship Fund unravels the lies of the Parks family and shows us how letting go of our own family myths can set us free.

An Accident Waiting to Happen

by Adrian White

“Extraordinarily engaging and sensitive, wringing one’s emotions.” (Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller)

A young woman disappears. Her partner Gregory, under suspicion of having done her harm, is left to care for her son Tomas from a previous relationship. The race is on for Gregory to find the woman he loves before the police take Tomas away. How far would you go to protect the ones you love?

What others are saying about

An Accident Waiting to Happen

Adrian White’s debut is irresistible . . . it’s like life.

Afric Hamilton, Irish Examiner

If you were to judge a book by its cover, you might think An Accident Waiting to Happen is a touchy-feely boy’s book in the Tony Parsons/Nick Hornby tradition. However, appearances can be deceptive and this is a rather unpleasant book with a remarkably unsympathetic narrator. Dark, unsettling – and definitely not touchy-feely.

Anna Carey, Image Magazine

A tough subject, desertion, handled with compelling simplicity as a father and son cope alone in a rough world. Extraordinarily engaging and sensitive, wringing one’s emotions.

Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller

His novel mixes gripping sections with an internal monologue filled with anxiety, confusion and weakness. Disturbing and sometimes irresistible, this is a story that will find a responsive audience in the growing ranks of dispossessed fathers.

Lucille Redmond, Irish Independent

White offers a porthole on the male dilemma – the pressure to plumb his emotions and articulate them, the quandary of a sense of alienation from his environment. His unflinching honesty, coupled with an accessible writing style, produce an assured debut.

Martina Devlin, Dublin Evening Herald

An Accident Waiting to Happen was first published by Penguin Books, as was his second novel, Where the Rain Gets In. Both are now available as ebooks.

Il regno segreto (1907) serie WERDENSTEIN ep. 1 di 6 (Collana: Romanzi a puntate) (Italian Edition)

by Carmen Margherita Di Giglio

BESTSELLER IN NARRATIVA STORICA

Primo episodio: Il regno segreto.

WERDENSTEIN
Una figura femminile eccezionale, fuori dalle regole del proprio tempo
Un genio nella creatività e nella dissolutezza

GERMANIA 1907-1938. Da moglie e madre sottomessa e infelice, Helèna von Waldenburg si trasforma in donna forte e trasgressiva. Ã? lei “il genio”, la creatrice di Werdenstein, fra le cui mani tutto sembra fiorire. Donna d’affari audace e ambiziosa, eterna rivale del marito, il gelido opportunista Heinrich von Rosenberg, ufficiale dell’esercito tedesco, Helèna è anche madre di Philipp (il tragico duca de “Lo scrigno di Ossian”), su cui riversa tutto il suo amore: amore assoluto, amore disarmante, amore profondo e totalizzante… ma non amore materno. Dietro le mura dorate del castello di Werdenstein si nasconde, infatti, un inconfessabile segreto: l’ultimo tabù dell’umanità, da sempre tenuto sepolto agli occhi delle folle, innominabile e intoccabile anche ai nostri giorni…
Attraverso una scrittura raffinata e intensa che non risparmia nulla al lettore, passando dai toni della saga familiare a quelli del giallo e del romanzo storico-politico, l’autrice delinea il ritratto di una società decadente – quella che dalla Germania di Guglielmo II condurrà alla follia del Terzo Reich â?? e apre uno squarcio sul tema delle contraddizioni esistenziali, delle degenerazioni erotiche che sottostanno all’ideologia nazista e su alcune delle tematiche più scottanti dell’umanità: l’incesto madre-figlio, l’innocenza e la colpa, l’eterno femminino e l’esistenza di Dio.

Frankie Jones

by J. R. Klein

Frankie Jones is searching for somethingâ??something elusive.

Abandoned as an infant by his father, orphaned after his mother died when he was a child, Frankie grows up tough, edgy, and street smart. The quintessential self-made man, he lives life to the fullest.

Frankie becomes a journalist, hoping to be the next great American writer. While in Boston, he meets Mercedes Brewster. Refined, sophisticated, and from a prominent New England family, she is the complete opposite of Frankie. He can’t help falling for her, but can he keep his wanderlust in check?

Yet, it is the American Dream that Frankie seeks more than anything. Get the career. Get the success. And most importantly, get the girl. In California, Frankie becomes friends with Owen Brookes. Gutsy, brazen, and at times reckless, Owen is Frankie’s alter ego. It is Owen who challenges Frankie’s belief in the American Dream. Will either of them achieve what they want? What must they give up in pursuit? Some lessons you learn the hard way, but it is how you react in the face of adversity that ultimately matters. Frankie Jones is a rich tapestry of hope, love, friendship, and betrayalâ??a story of life itself.



La trilogia di Sofia (Italian Edition)

by Francesco Casali

Fino a che punto la mente umana può spingersi per affrontare il dolore?
Sofia e Francesco: due anime unite da un trauma.

Sofia, presente nei tre racconti che compongono la trilogia, tocca le corde più profonde dell’animo, con i suoi sdoppiamenti e le sue ricomposizioni.
Un dramma umano che colpisce il cuore che palpita per il destino di un’anima divisa tra amore e morte. La protagonista è lo spunto fervido per affrontare il tema del lutto e degli affetti familiari, delle relazioni parentali e della genitorialità, in una trilogia dalla storia complessa e contraddittoria, sospesa tra romanzo e saggio.
Sofia è il personaggio attraverso il quale l’autore si mette a nudo, svestendo i panni di educatore e svelando con ardimento le sue parti più intime e fragili, analizzando quel che resta dopo un trauma come la mancanza degli affetti più cari.

La trilogia comprende
– Sofia (contenuto in “Niente da nascondere” – Koi Press – 2012)
– Les galets dans le lac (contenuto in “Quello che resta” – Koi Press – 2013)
– La strada verso casa (inedito)
