J ulia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?

N ick Whittier, having been alive for six centuries, has had plenty of time to master three professions. In a typical week he works as a police officer, lawyer and doctor and still finds time to murder someone and drink their blood. He used to feel guilty about the killings, but now he restricts himself to only eating the worst members of society. Few people in Starside, Illinois seem to care about the untimely deaths of spam e-mailers, pushy Jehovah Witnesses and politicians. However, the barriers between Nick’s three secret lives start to crumble when a mysterious man from his past arrives in town seeking revenge. Nick must move quickly to prevent the three women in his life, and the authorities who are hunting him, from discovering his terrible secret.
Dark Moonlighting is humorous and aimed at the adult market. It explores four of the biggest clichés in popular culture, and it pokes fun at a number of popular television shows including Law & Order, Bones and House. It also takes a more realistic and amusing approach to the vampire cliché. For example, the average human has the equivalent of five Big Gulps worth of blood in their body. Nick takes twenty minutes to kill someone and, like the vampire bat, must immediately urinate afterwards.

P aul Yarbrough’s critically-acclaimed debut novel, MISSISSIPPI COTTON, is a 2012 AMAZON BESTSELLER.
MISSISSIPPI COTTON brings to light the complex history of rural Mississippi in the 1950′s. It is 1951. Young Jake Conner gets on a bus to visit his cousins in the Mississippi Delta. But when the body of an unknown man is found in the Mississippi River, Jake’s summer vacation gets a little more adventurous as he and his cousins snoop around in a mystery that is better left to the grown ups.
“First time novelist, Paul H. Yarbrough, masterfully transports readers deep into the world of Mississippi Cotton, where life is not as simple as it seems.” ~Julie Cantrell, editor, Southern Literary Review and bestselling author of Into the Free
“In Mississippi Cotton a 20th Century Huck Finn has a real adventure. No matter that his raft is a Trailways Bus along the river, the trip is no less toward maturity. If you like a good story, this is your book, a book told by someone who knows the terrain–its history, people, landscape and culture. Only a proper native could have his narrator say that his daddy taught him never to hold onto anything with Lincoln’s face longer than you had to.” ~Dr. James Everett Kibler, author, Walking Toward Home, Memories Keep, and Our Father’s Fields
“Set in 1951, in the fictional Delta town of Cotton City, the story is more broadly a Southern story…an agrarian story. It is also a murder mystery. The body of an unknown man is found in the river at the Greenville Bridge. Jake’s bus ride visit to his Delta cousins begins a parallel journey that ends in the discovery of the dead mans identity.” ~Noel Workman, Delta Magazine
From MISSISSIPPI COTTON:
“Earl put his brown hat in the chair next to him. In his work clothes, he looked tanned and strong–a real cotton farmer. His blue cotton shirt sleeves rolled up revealed big hairy forearms, with hard-looking muscle that came from farm work. He had a gentle way about him, but a mannerism that made you know he was definitely no softy. One of his big hands swept around the cup, not using the crook, and took a big swallow. Black. No sissy coffee for Earl Hightower.”

“SUPER COWBOY RIDES reminds me of when I was a boy and we would visit my grandparents’ farm in Utah where my cousins would try, in a loving way, to kill me. It has a ring of authenticity; I loved each chapter.” ~Jack Weyland, best-selling author of Charly and other YA novels
Meet six-year-old Tommy Johnson, Super Cowboy and Super Story-teller. His tale of why a boy needs a dog for a pet instead of a cat typifies the down-to-earth, humorous view of a Western farm boy. But once Tommy starts school, things get complicated. He gets put in the lowest reading group and told to stay in the back of the classroom. He’s picked on by his teacher and mocked by classmates. When tragedy strikes, Tommy must carry a burden beyond what any first-grader should have to face. In the process of dealing with his grief, this young cowboy learns the meaning of true friendship.
“These evocative tales of boyhood in rural America are rich with honest sentiment. Daris Howard’s young hero learns lessons on the real meaning of friendship, on problems with bullies, on where babies come from, and ultimately what things matter most.” ~ Chip Deffaa, author Voices of the Jazz Age.
“This is the perfect family read-out-loud book. What will this little cowboy do next? We laughed so hard, and my eight-year-old begged me to not stop reading. SUPER COWBOY RIDES reels you in from the first page.” ~ Stephanie Ashcroft, NY Times Best-selling author of 101 Things to Do with a Cake Mix

C razed with fear, a boy sprints through the African bush. He is pursued by the men who have butchered his parents. It is the beginning of his passage into manhood, which will see him experience the violent siege of Ladysmith, black-marketers and attempts on his life. Living on his wits, he is befriended by a British cavalry officer, Major George Stanley, whose life he saves and who will betray him.
From the slaughter of the South African Boer war of 1899-1902, to the snobbery of Edwardian England, where a decades-old secret leads to tragedy, Jan Willem develops from a naïve orphan into a resolute young man under the tutelage of Major Stanley and De Costa the wily but educated poacher and former priest.
Faced with the scheming of Major Stanley’s adopted sons, Russell and Edward, and the cruelty of their mother, Jan Willem is expelled from an exclusive school, for striking a school master, but finds sanctuary, with De Costa, in the forests of the Major’s estate.
Building a home, for his wife and child, Jan Willem begins to escape the demons of his youth. But the shared and mysterious past of De Costa and Major Stanley, and the determination of the major’s sons to be rid of him, result in kidnap, murder and tragedy.
