  • Brother Broken

    by Cecile Beaulieu
    ‘Brother Broken’ is not a tale of woe. It’s not a romance novel, a how-to handbook, a travel guide, a pot-boiler, a sci-fi sequel or a fantasy adventure. It’s a Saskatchewan true story. A slice of history that’s not dark or depressing. A memoir of hope and gratitude, with a touch of ridiculous―though some parts are complicated, because there is nothing straightforward pertaining to ‘broken’. Three of my brothers died. I wish I could say they died of natural causes, but there is nothing nat... more
  • Don't Tell Mom! Shenanigans of a Small-Town Kid

    by Greg Schweiner

    The book takes us back in time for a nostalgic look at time before parents were described as helicopters and tigers. We follow the adventures of a little boy and see the world through his eyes as he grows up in a era when video games didn't  exist and phones were attached to walls. 

    The stories and characters are relatable to anyone who lived through the period, or anyone who wants to know what life was like back then. The lessons learned are timeless.

  • She May Be Lying Down But She May Be Very Happy

    In dense, lyrical prose, Jody Gelb pays tribute to her daughter's short life. SHE MAY BE LYING DOWN BUT SHE MAY BE VERY HAPPY is a marvel of compression and potency. Gelb lays her experience bare in the full range of its emotional complexity, from profound suffering to ecstatic joy. It is a m... more

  • Reflections from the Shadow of Los Angeles

    by Byron Schneider
    Reflections from the Shadow of Los Angeles captures the unique mix of orange groves and ocean beaches, Disneyland and drugs, freeways and false landmarks that defined the Golden State in the 1960s and ‘70s. But there is hidden trauma in this paradise – family secrets that can’t stay buried forever.
  • Mob Island

    by Bubba Haupt and Teresa E. Ward, Ph.D.
    “Some things are not what they look and feel like.” — “Louie the Tailor” Rosanova Lou was right. Who would have believed that Savannah, Georgia, specifically the Savannah Inn and Country Club, played a significant role in mobster relations? Leading figures in the Mob during the seventies came together for important meetings at the Inn. And there were good reasons why they chose Savannah for these meetings (and the ultimate burial site of Jimmy Hoffa). \tMore important, who would believe th... more
  • Diamonds Beneath the Darkness: Life thru Lyrics ...the journey to become (part one)

    by Nicole Danielle
    Most people are just living to die. Here I am, just dying to live—is the whisper Nicole Danielle heard on the darkest night of her life. A beauty queen who committed a crime. A lover who committed a sin. A dreamer told to get her head out of the clouds. A bright light dimmed by the world. Life got dark and every time Nicole tried to change the narrative, the noise was just too loud— “You’re not enough.” “You will never be anything more than what you are.” “You’re a dime a dozen.” “Your... more

  • Hop, Skip and a Jump!: Life: Proceed With Caution

    by David Richard Hughes

    “Poignant, zany, and at times tragic, Hughes' story is a hyper observant travelogue of a life lived in full--and perhaps, out of control. And, naturally, there are hookers involved as well as a first heart attack at age 50 (in which no hookers are involved). "
