New Book Release: “Fruit of the Devil” by Mary Flodin

We are extremely pleased to be able to announce the immediate availability of Fruit of the Devil by Mary Flodin.

Ms. Aurora Bourne would do anything to protect her students from harm … even if that means going up against the most powerful corporation on the planet.

While getting her fourth grade classroom ready for Fall, Aurora begins to feel sick, and it’s more than back-to-school blues. Outside her windows next to the playground, strawberry fields have just been fumigated and pesticides are drifting into the classrooms, causing serious health issues for children and adults. When the teenage sister of a migrant student goes missing from the strawberry fields, it becomes clear that pesticide poisoning isn’t the only thing threatening the children’s safety, and Aurora begins to understand why farmworkers call strawberries Fruta del Diablo — the Fruit of the Devil.

Aurora starts asking questions and gets caught in a web of gangs, drugs, trafficking, and high-level corporate crime. When a Catholic priest comes to her aid, she falls in love with him, complicating her life further. She has no idea he’s actually an ancient nature god out of Pacific Coast indigenous legends.

Fruit of the Devil is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “The Stork” by Nancy Wood

We are extremely pleased to be able to deliver for immediate availability The Stork (A Shelby McDougall Mystery) by Nancy Wood.

Shelby McDougall’s past is behind her. Almost.

It’s been five and a half years since Shelby put her infant twins up for adoption, and she’s finally on track. Back in Santa Cruz, California, she’s sharing an apartment with her brother, Dexter, and in her second year of criminal justice studies. She’s landed her dream job as an intern to local P.I. Kathleen Bennett. And her stone-cold love life is heating up.

Then a late-night phone call puts Shelby’s perfectly ordered life into a tailspin.

One of the twins has been kidnapped, snatched from home in the middle of the night. There are no witnesses — no clues, no trails to follow. After meeting the family, Shelby knows something is off. The adoptive parents tell her the children don’t sleep, they eat constantly, and their IQs are off the charts. Against her better judgment, Shelby agrees to help.

By the time she realizes she’s up against something powerful, something evil, it’s almost too late. As Shelby fights for her life, and that of the kidnapped child, she discovers shocking truths about herself and the children.

The Stork is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “Due Date” by Nancy Wood

We are extremely pleased to announce the immediate availability of Due Date (A Shelby McDougall Mystery) by Nancy Wood.

Surrogate mother Shelby McDougall just fell for the biggest con of all: a scam that risks her life … and the lives of her unborn twins.

Twenty-three-year-old Shelby McDougall is facing a mountain of student debt and a memory she’d just as soon forget. An ad in Rolling Stone for a surrogate mother offers her a way to erase the loans and right her karmic place in the cosmos. Within a month, she’s signed a contract, relocated to Santa Cruz, California, and started fertility treatments.

But intended parents Jackson and Diane Entwistle have their own agenda — one that has nothing to do with diapers and lullabies. With her due date looming, and the clues piling up, Shelby must save herself and her twins.

As she uses her wits to survive, Shelby learns the real meaning of the word “family”.

Due Date is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “L’ultimo granello del mondo” (The Last Speck of the World) by Flavia Idà

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Italian edition of The Last Speck of the World (L’ultimo granello del mondo) by Flavia Idà.

No name. No race. No nationality. The survivor of the perfect catastrophe struggles to preserve herself and her hope that she may be found — by humans.

“I am female, thirty-two, alone in the last speck of the world. My name, my race and my nationality are no longer important. I do not know why the plague has spared me. It has taken everything else. All the clocks and all the machines are dead. What keeps me breathing is the hope that I may not be the sole custodian of the planet.”

Senza nome. Senza razza. Senza nazionalità. La superstite della catastrofe perfetta lotta per preservare se stessa e la sua speranza di essere trovata — da esseri umani.

“Sono femmina, di trentadue anni, sola nell’ultimo granello del mondo. Il mio nome, la mia razza e la mia nazionalità non sono importanti. Non so perché la pestilenza mi abbia risparmiato. Mi ha tolto ogni persona ed ogni cosa. Tutte le macchine e tutti gli orologi sono morti. Ciò che continua a farmi respirare è la speranza che io non sia l’unico custode del pianeta.”

The Last Speck of the World (L’ultimo granello del mondo) is available now in digital editions. A printed edition will available soon. Signed editions are also available.

New Book Release: “Memory and Metaphor” by Andrea Monticue

We are thrilled to announce the immediate availability of Memory and Metaphor by Andrea Monticue.

Civilization fell. It rose. At some point, people built starships.

A millennium after the Earth was abandoned to climate change and resource depletion, Sharon Manders wakes up in a body that used to belong to somebody else, and some say she was a terrorist. She has no idea how she could be digging for Pleistocene bones in Africa one day, and crewing on a starship the next. That was just before she met the wolfman, the elf, and the sex robot.

Struggling with distressingly unreliable memories, the expectations of her host body’s family and crewmates, future shock, and accusations of treason, Sharon goes on the lam to come face to face with terrorists, giant bugs, drug cartels, AIs, and lawyers.

All things considered, she’d rather be back in 21st Century California.

Memory and Metaphor is available in hardcover, trade paperback, and digital editions. Signed editions are also available.
