DESCRIPTION:

Nominated for France's Grand Prix de Littérature Policière 2017
One of Crime Fiction Lover's top 5 books of 2016

A dark tale of fate, revenge and violence in a country where wrong is the new right.

When the president of South Africa murders his wife in a fit of drunken rage he charges his most trusted henchman, the bloodthirsty Steve Bungu, with orchestrating a cover-up that pivots on blackmailing Joe Louw, a retired cop of impeccable ethics, to mount a fake investigation that'll clear the crooked head of state.

In a seemingly unconnected case, Investigator Disaster Zondi (Mixed Blood, Dust Devils) who, because of his criticism of the corrupt post-apartheid regime, has been banished to the fringes of law enforcement, is given the thankless task of traveling to the remote Kalahari Desert to arrest Magnus Kruger, a notorious white supremacist who rules over an Afrikaner-only enclave, for the slaying of a young black man.

As Louw and Zondi peel away layers of lies, hatred and festering secrets they reveal the connections that bind them, connections that reach back deep into the nightmare of South Africa's apartheid past.

DESCRIPTION:

The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures is a bestselling humorous memoir.

If you have ever failed at love, finances, been fired, not fit in, self-diagnosed yourself with disorders and conditions and/or said “I really need to get my s*** together,” this is the book for you.

“THE FUNNIEST, WITTIEST AND MOST RELATEABLE BOOK A GIRL COULD EVER READ.” A. Evers, BlueLine.com

“If you have ever been married, divorced, had a relationship where he/she was not that into you, been a student, s*** your pants, had a crazy-awesome friend, or have kids in your life, you’ll find something relatable in this book. Jessica Van Derven, Wisconsin Trophy Wife

“This book will make you feel, as a woman and as a mother, that you suck less.” Angie Stati, CarPool Shamers

“Don’t Read While Drinking (Your coffee or anything else, it will shoot out your nose from laughing.) R Johnson, Ivy owl Reviews

Amy’s self-deprecating style and short story format will remind you of David Sedaris, Jenny Lawson, and Tina Fey.

You will appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy’s debacles including: I Was Not Talking To You, where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her coat belt was dragging on the freeway and In The Neighborhood, where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population. You will relish the chapters entitled Calls From Sharon, where Amy’s best friend rants about her kids not getting a fair shot because public schools are ‘so political,’ her OBGYN reported that her vagina was ‘too clean’ and why the most eligible bachelor from 1982 had married a whore. Enjoy I’m Going to Kill You, where Amy compares her lack of sleep from her husband’s snoring to the tactics CIA agents use to extract secrets from POW’s.

Feel 20-32% better about your own life after reading Getting Divorced Sucks, where 911 was called after Amy had an adverse reaction from taking Xanax.

Every student has a story…

Dark, profane, and absurd, this comedy follows the journey of a young teacher on a misguided adventure to resurrect dead dreams. After being let go from his first school, the nameless narrator finds himself at a tough urban high school ready to quit. He decides that the only way to rekindle his passion for teaching is through his favorite novel. It’s a decision that leads him on an unsuspecting journey where he discovers that teaching a book about monsters means dealing with his own first.

The story exposes the importance of friendship and the truth behind what it means to be a teacher. Based on real events, the novel parallels Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic, Frankenstein, and shows that 200 years later, humanity still struggles to identify the real monsters.

It’s a must-read for aspiring educators, teachers, and those struggling with what it means to be a modern-day professional.

DESCRIPTION:

A classic Medieval-Gothic love story complete with ghostly wanderings, a spooky castle, and a damsel in distress. Baiadepaura Castle on the storm-swept cliffs of Cornwall is a place where scary things go bump in the knight!

****************

In the Dark Ages on a remote coast of Cornwall, there was a legend of a wicked lord who was burned to death for his deeds. Everyone in Cornwall knows to avoid Baiadepaura Castle because of the ghostly happenings, said to be the spirit of Lord de Rais, who has returned to seek revenge for his grisly death.

But these are local legends, barely reaching the ears of the lord who now owns the property. The Earl of Avon has acquired the old castle and intends to use it as a base against the pirate raids his coastal properties are suffering. He sends his best knight to command the derelict old castle and make it a powerful outpost, a knight who gives no credence to the tales of ghosts and revenge.

No-nonsense, seasoned knight Tenner de Velt is a grandson of the great Ajax de Velt (THE DARK LORD) and Christopher de Lohr (RISE OF THE DEFENDER). On his father’s side, Tenner comes from a family with its own horrific horror stories of the past, so tales of roasted lords and ghosts don’t bother him in the least. He’s thrilled to have his first real command and he intends to do himself proud by ridding the Avon properties of the pirates that plague them.

Accompanying Tenner is his new wife, Annalyla St. Lo. Unlike her husband, Annalyla believes the tales and she has more than one ghostly encounter but is reluctant to tell her doubting husband, fearful that the man she is falling in love with will believe her to be silly, or worse – believe she is mad. In keeping this information to herself, Annalyla unknowingly makes it easy for the marauding pirates to take advantage of the legend of Baiadepaura Castle – and make Tenner a target.

Join Tenner and Annalyla on the spooky, windswept shores of Cornwall as they battle ghosts, pirates, and at times, each other. But the passion between them is undeniable, and the love that blossoms is strong enough to fight off the darkness that threatens them both.

Light your candle, grab your good luck charm, and make way to Baiadepaura Castle for this unforgettable romance!
