    by James Sterngram

It’s the long-awaited (by his wife), finished product of one man’s ecstatic attempts to examine and enjoy (and enhance for his friends) the adventure of existence. The two main characters are James and the reader.... more

  • Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere

    by Nina Hart
    Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere is a book that speaks directly to society’s “elephants in the living room” through kooky hooliganism and satire. Five-year-old Bonanza’s mother tells her to “keep digging” as she buries her dolls, and ultimately herself. The dead poet Robert Lowell reappears as a high school student. Meanwhile, at Butterfly Farm, the protagonist dishes up some unconventional environmental justice. Even the ones who kill with oil spills have a voice in this ... more

  • Tides: Poems: Life's Ebb and Flow

    by Sandra Haight
    The poems in this poetry book embody a philosophical theme that, like the tides of the ocean, life is made up of opposing forces – ebbs and flows, ups and downs, highs and lows – and that each of these complement one another to make up a whole or cycle. Through the words of these poems may you feel the contrasting movements of the different “tides of life” – the courage and fears, the optimism and pessimism, the hope and despair— which we all feel as humans.

  • Broken Pieces

    by Rachel Thompson
    This is my most intensive work to date. Broken Pieces is a work of nonfiction essays, poetry, and prose where I open my soul and invite you in for a visit. It's vulnerable, it's raw honesty, it's no-holds barred. This is the first book I've published where I questioned if readers and reviewers would respond favorably due to the serious nature of the work. And yet, they have. Most readers know me as the funny girl, but this work (hinted at in A Walk In The Snark), shows that I can go into t... more
