    My Ladybird Story

    John Bird has never fit in. He can’t be the all American boy his dad wants him to be, he’s bullied at school and he can’t bear to look at himself in the mirror. While most boys his age are playing sports and kissing girls, John can only find comfort in the secret he keeps hidden away in a box in his room…

    When feisty Aureus crashes into his life, John starts the long process of realizing that it’s what is inside us that counts and that true friends love us, no matter what our secrets are.

    It’s time John learns to embrace the school taunt, “Ladybird” and grow into the person he is meant to be.

    Save the Last Bullet for God

    The novel is an epic, mind-bending science fiction story that takes the reader on a thrilling, thoughtful journey through time and space. This is dark speculative mysterious historical science-fiction.

    Save the Last Bullet for God follows Wilhelm Reich, a survivor of World War I who finds himself in a forbidden infatuation with a mysterious and disturbed young woman at the mental hospital where he works. His tale intersects with that of Oktay, a loving husband from Istanbul whose increasing obsession leads him to discover a hidden message in the Qur’an, and that of Cuci, a Mongol warlord and son of Genghis Khan. These characters and others find their lives ensnared in a struggle with an extraterrestrial being that seeks to twist them for its own purposes, and whose aims for the good of humanity leave little room or mercy for those who get in the way.

    The Vanishing Chemist

    YOUR BOOK DESCRIPTION (200 WORDS MAXIMUM)
    Greed and opportunity become a volatile mix in retired attorney Peter Alpert’s novel The Vanishing Chemist.

    Chemist Madison Bellamy first contacts attorney Mark Conover when he faces a $12 million judgement for allegedly polluting Colorado waterways with his platinum refinery. Conover gets the judgment overturned, but he hears from Bellamy again when the eccentric chemist continues his unscrupulous practices in Arizona.

    That won’t be the last contact. Bellamy’s greed leads him into high-stakes finance deals and takes him around the world in pursuit of cash. Getting governmental approval before he sells stocks is simply a formality that Bellamy doesn’t have time to deal with. What he does have time for is a Bulgarian beauty who joins him in his quest.

    Throughout it all, he phones Conover, hoping to stay one step ahead of the authorities as he tries to get the pot of money of his dreams. How long can he keep it up? Conover merely wonders as the calls keep coming and he finds himself circling the globe in an effort to keep up with Bellamy.

    Based on factual events, Alpert weaves a tale of international intrigue that gives readers an inside look at courtroom proceedings, high-finance risks, and the trappings of greed.

    Mark of the Remaker

    Hugo Ari grew up in the shadow of his late father, a Remaker named Wayland. All Hugo knew about his father was his heroic role in the Hundred-Year Void War.

    When enemy Techan forces attack Hugo’s hometown of Bringer, Hugo must find the courage to defend his father’s legacy. As Bringer burns, Hugo discovers a secret about his past . . . and the possible key to his people’s survival.

    Accompanied by a fellow band of Bringer survivors, Hugo retreats to a hidden hollow deep in the Gündrif Mountains. As Techan soldiers advance perilously closer, Hugo races to uncover the meaning behind his glowing red birthmark…

    Meanwhile, in the Techan capital of Rowan, General Analah Crescent is assembling a force of powerful warships and state-of-the-art sky stingers. Her orders are to capture Hugo at any cost. The emperor of the Techan Empire, a fallen Remaker named Rubin, will stop at nothing to expand his power and crush any movement to overthrow his reign—no matter if it means betraying his people once again.

    Can the Dwarves, Elves, Reptilians, and other races unite in time to save the world of Mythra? Or are Hugo and his fellow Bringer warriors doomed to repeat the mistakes of Wayland’s generation?

    A thrilling Heroic Fantasy, book one of Ian Yamagata’s debut series takes us into a new, unforgettable world, where enemies are not always what they seem . . .

    Like many teenagers, Jim Carson doesn't get along with his parents, feels he is neglected at home and finds it hard to connect with classmates and teachers at school. Devising a half-baked plan, he flees his Florida home in the middle of the night for what he hopes will be a new start on the West Coast. What he encounters along the way is life changing, but not in the way he had hoped. Based on a true story, Runaway: A Tragedy of Youth takes an unflinching view of what can happen when impulse overcomes prudence, when a split-second decision can pull a life off its rails.

    The Dark Lake

    Something is wrong with Jane.

    It's not that she still lives with her parents in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, although she's well into her thirties. It's not that she can't keep a job, stay sober, or function as an independent adult. It's something else. Something she can't quite remember.

    There was a party. And a car. And the lake.
