Movie Dynasty Princesses: Irene Mayer Selznick and Edith Mayer Goetz
The fascinating lives of celebrated Broadway producer Irene Mayer Selznick (“A Streetcar Named Desire”; “The Chalk Garden”), and leading socialite Edith Mayer Goetz, are explored in this revealing double bio. As the daughters of iconic MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer, they were Hollywood royalty. Through their marriages to high profile film producers — Irene to David O. Selznick (“Gone with the Wind”) and Edith to future Universal mogul William Goetz — the sisters each carved out her own distinctive niche in Hollywood.

You can’t hide from magic when it’s in your blood ….
When Allaigna was seven she almost sang her baby brother to sleep — forever. She may be heir to neither her mother’s titles nor her secrets, but she has inherited her grandmother’s dangerous talent for singing music into magic.
Allaigna’s Song: Overture is a love story, a family saga, and a coming-of-age novel that braids together the stories of daughter, mother, and grandmother into a rich and deftly-woven narrative.

JM Landels is an equestrian swordswoman, artist, and editor based out of Richmond BC.
Trying to escape the oppression leading him to drinking, drugs, and despair, 22-year-old William James rejects a teaching position offer at a prestigious Buffalo high school and moves to Mexico to find freedom in its beaches, mountains, and culture.
But soon, this freedom becomes oppressive as well as William finds himself unable to avoid the pull of the wild party scene in the small town of Lila where he lives. He continues a downward spiral until he meets a complex and compassionate Mexican woman whose love inspires him to face the question he’s been avoiding: Is this trip a desperate search for life or a slow death?
A dark but humorous coming-of-age novel, UNDERSTANDING THE ALACRÁN explores many of the questions that haunt young people searching for love and their place in this world, and offers a poetic look at the raw beauty and healing power of Mexico.

Oreads (Or-e-ads) is a touching and bittersweet coming-of-age story. Lyrical, emotionally charged, moving and heart breaking. Oreads is an excellent story and an important one. This novel does for Vietnam War era Appalachia what Thomas Hardy did for Victorian England with Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Lavelle’s first novel explores gender roles, sexuality, and Appalachian regional influences, from setting to socioeconomic determinism. In Greek mythology an Oread is a mountain nymph, so Lavelle’s title, Oreads, emphasizes the powerful connection between the protagonist, Cassie Wolphe, and her mountainous environment.
“Oreads guides readers through a treacherous path of inevitable heartbreak and willful resilience in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia.” Jason Mark Harris—Appalachian Journal
“Author John F. Lavelle’s Oreads is a compelling, creative, and original novel that is certain to be an enduringly popular and very highly recommended addition to community library collections.”—Midwest Book Review—The Fiction Shelf

I write clean romance, romantic/suspense, and suspense. I’m an avid tennis fanatic and addicted to bottled tea. My latest release is a Kindle Suspense/Sci-Fi/Romance titled, A Body Resurrected.
She is a self-hating anti social hermit. Who’s a sarcastic asshole who reads books, writes them and does art every now and then. Has the tendency to brag on about video games while playing them on Twitter.
A shitlord who isn’t afraid to call out the reader/booktube community for their bullshit when it comes to attacking authors/publishers.

Charles Freedom Long
I write Science Fiction about what might be. Psionics, aliens and other worlds, awareness and ongoing communication between the living and the dead, and how that might affect the life and philosophy of a world.
I’m a psychologist and a medium. After years of seeing the dead portrayed in countless fatuous ways, I decided it was time for someone to show them in a manner some might consider more truthful. That is, the personality survives the change we call death, and moves on into other dimensions.
My award winning novel, Dancing With The Dead, http://mybook.to/dancingwithdead
explores the themes —what is truth, the power of love–and will challenge your perception of death, life after death and the quest for truth that continues after the change called death

My name is Jennifer and I am a young fantasy author. I’ve always loved to read and a bit over a year ago, after I finished school, I started writing myself. In the beginning of July I published my first book called ‘The Gifted: The four Kingdoms’ on Amazon which was one of the most exciting moments for me. I love fantasy, scifi, romance and thrillers and am open to new genres as well.
P. Wesley Lundburg
P. Wesley Lundburg has been an Alaska Charter Boat Captain, Coast Guardsman, and college English professor. Wes holds a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Literature. He works full-time in higher education and writes in his spare time, publishing creative essays, short stories, and academic papers. His greatest joy is writing fiction, however, and he has now moved from short stories to writing novels.
Wes has lived all over the U.S. His novels are set in two places he knows very well: San Diego, where he grew up, and Alaska, where he lived more than 17 years of his life. He ran a fishing charter company in Alaska and spent a lot of time in the Alaska Wilderness. Wes now lives on Long Island, New York, with his wife, five kids, very small dog, and a smattering of wild bunnies that hide and dart around his back yard.
Book #1 in the “Time Will Tell” series only 99¢ Sean knows there’s something “different” about the new girl in school — Alexis Townsend — but before he can figure out what, his world is turned upside down by the arrival of a distant relative. Distant, as in, his great-great-great-great-great-grandson. Life in 1995 seems pretty primitive to the time-traveler from the 23rd Century, but he tries hard to fit in with some help from his ancestor. Einstein’s Theory didn’t cover THIS relativity.
