George T. Hahn
Tau Ceti: A Ship from Earth
The colony ships took sixteen years to travel the twelve light years between Earth and Tau Ceti. Tau Ceti 2, known as Pitcairn, was easily the most successful of the original three colonies, a stable peaceful world for two hundred years, yet isolated more than any other group in history. Supply ships came every twenty years or so, bringing cargo not available on the planet and new colonists, but not disturbing the tranquil colony. But change, for better or worse, was coming. It began with the arrival of the library ship Asimov in the year 2322.
First in the Tau Ceti trilogy. Tau Ceti: The New Colonists and Tau Ceti: The Immortality Conspiracy complete the trilogy and a novella, Voyage of the Capek, continues in the same fictional universe.
Susan Elizabeth Hale
With the Great Mother Tree dying in the Shining Land, eleven-year-old Emma Oliver must sing the Song of Creation before it’s too late. Emma doesn’t know that she comes from generations of tree singers, passed from mother to daughter. She doesn’t believe she can sing.
Her ailing grandmother has just come to live with the family. Her father is hardly ever at home. Her mother has been acting strange. To add to Emma’s troubles, her mother’s great uncle from England is coming to stay. Then, a strange old woman wearing a hat full of feathers appears mysteriously in her garden. She gives Emma a white swan feather that emits a haunting melody.
Emma’s only solace is the oak tree in her garden, which she names Annie Oakley. What she does not yet know is that Annie is part of a network of tree spirits who disguise themselves as old women. These spirits have come to Peachtree City to help Emma remember her mission to sing the Song of Creation and save the Great Mother tree.

Jennifer Hallock spends her days teaching history and her nights writing historical happily-ever-afters. She has lived and worked in the Philippines, but she currently writes at her little brick house on a New England homestead—kept company by her husband, a growing flock of chickens, and a border collie mutt puppy who likes to chew computer power cords. My historical fiction/historical romance series is set in the American colonial Philippines. Guerrillas and revolutionaries blanket the countryside. The Americans are fighting to hold onto their first overseas colony, but disease, drought, and recession belie the fruits of the promised “civilization.” But there is always a chance to fall in love! I use inspiration from real events and real history to guide my characters and plot lines. There are dark moments, but always a happily-ever-after.

I worked as a school psychologist for thirty years in public school and detention centers with damaged and challenging kids. During that time the first school shooting took place in the city I had grown up in, igniting a desire to understand what could twist a person into committing such an act, and led to the writing of Crooked Grow the Trees. The story follows Sophia as she tries to help incarcerated youth overcome their pasts to gain freedom, even as she faces her own family challenges and traumas. As shocking events unfold, it becomes clear that the line between “us” and “them” is not as well drawn as we might hope. An emotional rollercoaster to the end, this story is raw and real, and may change how you look at those you think you know.
A book creatively narrated from the eyes of three characters; father, mother, and son. Benjamin Lawrence, a stockbroker, a poor father, an arrogant husband, an overindulgent man, and a real jerk travels inside of his very own soul and into the depths of his wildest dreams. But his soul will not unleash him until he unlocks the key to all of his fundamental flaws. Hope, true love, forgiveness, a failed marriage, poor parenting, gun violence, God and many other issues ride the currents down a river and through this novel’s literary realism.
Annie Harmon lives in Houston (specifically Atascocita) Texas,USA, but has lived in many of our beautiful states. She has one husband (all she can handle) three children (who are each more beautiful than she could have hoped) and one dog (who is still trying to claim a spot as one of the above mentioned).
There is the technical bio listing books and editorial magazines, but that part gets boring.

She takes her antics a bit far, tricking Piggy and Oscar and framing them for spilled trash.
Yet, for all her trouble-making, Kitty Bear isn’t all bad. She also sneaks extra food to Piggy when their human family isn’t looking. So, when a stray attacks Kitty Bear, Piggy is not able to forget it.
Follow Piggy as he leads Oscar into a daring mission to protect the neighborhood pets from the violent stray that attacked Kitty Bear. Can he keep the plan from going a little astray itself?

I’m a game writer who has contributed to the worlds of Mass Effect, Shadowrun, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. I live in fear of the day when actual space marines, troll mercenaries, pirates and Jedi show up on my doorstep to tell me I got it wrong. I’m here to tell you about “Civil Blood: The Vampire Rights Case that Changed a Nation.” (The long subtitle helps searches.) “Civil Blood” is a hybrid urban fantasy/legal thriller set in that most vampiric of towns, Washington, D.C.. It tells the story of two deniable assassins in love, the soulless biomedical corporation that employs them, and the class-action vampire rights trial that brings them together and tears them apart. Take the “Law & Order” universe, put it in a blender with “V-Wars” and “Shadowrun” and set it to “frappe.” The full pitch and sample chapters are on the website.

White Sheets to Brown Babies is a memoir of the life of Jvonne Hubbard, a little girl who was raised to hate minorities through the indoctrination of her father, who was the Grand Dragon of a North Carolina faction of the KKK. It includes tales of living through a lifetime of dysfunction, violence and terror at the hands of both her father and other nefarious individuals who would seek to perpetuate the cycle. More importantly though, it is also a story of how they did not succeed in this hateful quest, as Jvonne struggled on and through to the other side to embrace love, laughter and the pursuit of personal happiness. Part of this amazing transformation even led to her adoption of a biracial infant, an event that served both as a healing elixir to her soul and a grandiose “!#%& you” to all the ugliness that hate brings.
I’m both a writer and playwright. I love the art of storytelling. Be it love and despair; or hate and violence! Having read hundreds of novels from such greats as Stephen King, James Herbert, James Patterson I’ve always loved a good character driven thriller and I have learned much. From the dramatic exchange of characters to dark and twisted circumstances they find themselves in. Endings are very important to me too! I’ll never rush an ending as I thrive on taking people on a satisfying journey they’ll remember, over and over again! I’m a reader, just like you and I relish in the satisfaction of a good story. I hope you enjoy my work.
