by Daniel McGheeChasing a Flawed Sun is a harrowing story of narrowly escaping personal destruction, a life in prison—and death over and over again. It’s a young mans story of years spent avoiding cold, hard truths in pursuit of the warmth and comfort of heroin in a spoon. Daniel writes, “There is a sense of security I get from the sun. It brings me hope, brightness, energy and warmth. The soft kiss of the sun upon my skin cradles me. It blankets my body in a sense of comfort, and I spend as much time in it as... more
by Meg FloresThis is a memoir that faces how every love story reflects the one before it. Like waves, people crash into each other before pulling back. I have always known this kind of breaking. First, my father left my mother. And, in the same way, someone left me. I have felt this flux endlessly. A shattering. A sameness. Then, loving you changed everything. WE DIED IN WATER is nonlinear and poetic, insisting that the act of recollection puts one’s heart in a prism, a place of distortion and vivid beaut... more

by Siri ZwemkeRescue Meez is the story of how I went from crazy cat lady to director of a non-profit cat rescue group that rescued over 13,000 cats in 20 years.

I face rifle-wielding hillbillies, swim with cats, do the dance of the dead mouse and catch flying ferals as I learn what not to do when running a cat rescue.
