When Lucy is called in at the last minute to act as a temporary executive assistant to the handsome, mysterious CEO of the company she has only been with for a month, the first person she wants to share the news with is her best friend, Stella. But Stella is unreachable, on her way home from a business convention and a humiliating hookup.
On one eventful day, Lucy finds herself flying in a private jet to the east coast, struggling to conceal her helpless attraction to her boss, while Stella, on a commercial airliner heading west, is seated next to an annoyingly attractive stranger who may not be a stranger after all. Neither friend is yet aware that each has embarked on a journey of personal discovery and love that will change both of their lives forever.

Riding the Rails: Teenagers on the Move During the Great Depression

By the height of the Great Depression, a quarter of a million teenagers were hopping freight trains with the hope that a better life awaited them farther down the line.
They grew up fast in speeding boxcars, living in hobo jungles, begging on the streets and running from the police and club-wielding railroad guards.
The restless youth of 3,000 boxcar boys and girls, many who went from “middle-class gentility to dirt poor” overnight, is recaptured in Riding the Rails: Teenagers on the Move During the Great Depression.
With skill and sensitivity, Uys weaves together these rich reminiscences; his book dispels the myths of a hobo existence and reveals the story of a daring generation of American teenagers who survived some of the hardest times in our nation’s history.
The result is a memorable and moving story in which we see the decade of the Great Depression entirely through the eyes of young men and women growing up on a landscape of ruin. We ride the rails with them, setting out from homes shattered by unemployment and poverty and hitting the road.
We learn of their struggle to survive on the streets of America and know their bitter disappointments, their sense of loss of childhood, their frustrations at the lack of opportunity.
“When I think of all this traveling across the land, searching for the things we had lost, there is a place inside my chest that still hurts,” recalls one rider.
When they left the rails and got a hold on their lives, they never let go. Many tell of keeping the jobs they found for 30 or 40 years. And the girls they met, too: many write joyously of their enduring devotion to the sweethearts they married when they settled down. Their stories told in their own words resonate with the pluck and courage they showed in going to seek a better life.
Illustrated with rare archival photos and drawing primarily on letters and oral histories of three thousand men and women who hopped freight trains, Riding the Rails brings to life a neglected saga of America in the 1930s.
Self-reliance, compassion, frugality, and a love of freedom and country are at the heart of the lessons these teens learned. At journey’s end, the resilience of these survivors is a testament to the indomitable strength of the human spirit.
"Uys so thoroughly recreates the wretched conditions the boxcar boys and girls endured that the reader can all but hear the cadence of the trains on the tracks, and the lonesome wail at every whistle stop." - Chicago Tribune
"As gripping as it is well-researched." - Denver Post.
"Colorful, sometimes funny, often poignant and tragic stories...Uys researched the era with empathy and skill." - Indianapolis Star
"One of the most poignant memories of the wandering youth of the Great Depression." - Sacramento Bee [close]Giveaway dates: May 08 - Jul 08, 20153 copies available, 1257 people requestingCountries available: US

"Pulsing with vigor, this is a vast novel to tell the story of a vast country.” Publishers Weekly
Brazil is a spellbinding saga on a truly epic scale that brings to life Brazil and her history.
It is the first work of fiction to depict five centuries of a great nation's remarkable history, its evolution from colony to kingdom, from empire to modern republic. With a stunning cast of real and fictional characters, the story unfolds in South America, Africa and Europe.
Two powerful families dominate this extraordinary novel. The Cavalcantis are among the original settlers and establish the classic Brazilian planation -- vast, powerful, built with slave labor.
The da Silvas represent the second element in both contemporary and historical Brazil: pathfinders and prospectors. For generations, these adventurers have their eyes set on El Dorado, which they ultimately find -- in a coffee fazenda at Sao Paulo.
"Errol Lincoln Uys has accomplished what no Brazilian author from José de Alencar to Jorge Amado was able to do. He is the first to write our national epic in all its decisive episodes. He is the first outsider to see us with total honesty and sympathy. Descriptions like those of the war with Paraguay are unsurpassed in our literature and evoke the great passages of War and Peace." -- Professor Wilson Martins, Jornal do Brasil.

Enter to win one signed finished copy of prizewinning poet, painter, and novelist Clarence Major's latest collection:
“Over the years, I have come to believe that Clarence Major is one of the most significant American poets of the past two decades. Educated as a painter . . . from the outset he brought to poetry the understanding of scale, surface, and palette. . . . His work [is] also linguistically innovative. . . . His is a catholic but intellectually and aesthetically rigorous practice.”
“I love the stark contrasts. . . . Major is . . . someone with . . . a vivid sense of how narrative and impulse inhabit the visual realm.”
—Tracy K. Smith
Clarence Major is a consummate artist whose work in poetry, fiction, and painting has been widely recognized. He has been part of twenty-eight group exhibitions, has had fifteen one-man shows, and has published fourteen collections of poetry and nine works of fiction. Major’s works—and this collection in particular—are distinguished by his poetic sociability and his unblinking but generous and affectionate portraiture.
In FROM NOW ON, a retrospective of poems from the 1950s to the present—including selections from each of Major’s previous books of poetry as well as a generous selection of new poems—Major creates a vivid gallery of nimbly drawn characters. Here he establishes a voice that is singular and musical, one that draws witty, moving, and empathetic portraits of African American urban and country dwellers. Ultimately, this collection maintains Major’s intimate, conversational poetry while simultaneously becoming more eclectic, multicultural, and cosmopolitan. Major’s poetry is affable, but it suggests an insistence that we can connect with history and social change through the dynamic lives of the people we encounter daily.

She's a wife, mother (to a tattooed teenage daughter she avoids), Sears Portrait Studio photographer, and wimp. Asserting herself, taking the reins, or facing life head-on are not in her repertoire. So when Caroline suddenly cracks and screams "Fuck you!" at the PTA president, she is shocked. So is her husband. So is the PTA president. So is everyone.View Details »
But Caroline soon realizes the true cause of her outburst can be traced back to something that happened to her as a teenager, a scarring betrayal by her best friend Emily. This act changed Caroline's life forever. So, with a little bit of bravery flowing through her veins, Caroline decides to go back to her home town and confront Emily. She busts her daughter Polly out of school, and the two set off to deliver the perfect comeback, which is twenty-five years in the making. But nothing goes as planned. Long buried secrets begin to rise to the surface, and Caroline will have to face much more than one old, bad best friend.
A heartwarming story told with Matthew Dicks' signature wit, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs is a deceptively simple novel about the ways in which our childhood experiences reverberate through our lives, and the bravery of one woman trying to change her life and finds true understanding of her daughter, and herself, along the way.

Hilarious and poignant, a glimpse into the mind of someone who is both a sufferer from and an investigator of clutter.
Millions of Americans struggle with severe clutter and hoarding. New York writer and bohemian Barry Yourgrau is one of them. Behind the door of his Queens apartment, Yourgrau’s life is, quite literally, chaos. Confronted by his exasperated girlfriend, a globe-trotting food critic, he embarks on a heartfelt, wide-ranging, and too often uproarious project—part Larry David, part Janet Malcolm—to take control of his crammed, disorderly apartment and life, and to explore the wider world of collecting, clutter, and extreme hoarding.
Encounters with a professional declutterer, a Lacanian shrink, and Clutterers Anonymous—not to mention England’s most excessive hoarder—as well as explorations of the bewildering universe of new therapies and brain science, help Yourgrau navigate uncharted territory: clearing shelves, boxes, and bags; throwing out a nostalgic cracked pasta bowl; and sorting through a lifetime of messy relationships. Mess is the story of one man’s efforts to learn to let go, to clean up his space (physical and emotional), and to save his relationship.

Millions of Americans will go to therapy this year, but veteran psychotherapist Gary Trosclair believes the vast majority of them will start the process with little to no sense of how to best use their sessions to achieve their goals. The latest psychology research has proven that effective client participation is one of the the most important factors in a successful therapy. What can one do to get the most out of their sessions to create lasting positive changes in their lives? What does it look like to “work on it” in therapy?
Trosclair covers these points and more, combining cutting-edge scientific research with years of fascinating anecdotal evidence to create a guide that is as compelling as it is indispensable. It teaches readers how to take off their masks and be real with their therapists, how to deal with emotions that arise in session, how to continue their psychological work outside of sessions, how to know when it’s time to say goodbye to their therapists, and much more.
Whether you’re already in therapy and looking to make more out of each appointment, or you’re thinking of starting the process and want to go in with a game plan, I’m Working on It in Therapy will show you how you can make every session count towards becoming your best possible self.

With echoes of Raymond Carver as well as Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff and Richard Yates’ Revolutionary Road, 'The Last Pilot' re-ignites the thrill and excitement of the space race through the story of one man’s courage in the face of unthinkable loss.
Set against the backdrop of one of the most emotionally charged periods in American history, The Last Pilot begins in the bone-dry Mojave Desert during the late 1940s, where US Air Force test pilots are racing to break the sound barrier. Among the exalted few is Jim Harrison: dedicated to his wife, Grace, and their baby daughter.
By the 1960s, the space race is underway and Harrison and his colleagues are offered a place in history as the world’s first astronauts. But when his young family is thrown into crisis, Jim is faced with a decision that will affect the course of the rest of his life – whether to accept his ticket to the moon and at what cost.

MOSTLY DEAD MELVIN
Life dies and then you suck.... Kind of.
Melvin Morton loves vampires – the beauty, the power, the pop culture awesome of it all, and knows that his boring, lonely life as a night security guard in a mall would be so much better if only vampires were real.
That changes when a strange, pale girl grants Melvin’s wish with one accidental drop of her blood.
Turns out that Hollywood lied. Melvin doesn’t sparkle, he isn’t handsome, and the sight of blood? Gross!
Fangless, blue, and utterly naïve, Melvin must find a way to survive while being stalked by a shadow demon and vengeful ghosts. His un-life un-death takes a sinister turn when he stumbles into an underworld civil war where a clan of goblins want to finish killing him, and not in a good way.
With the dubious assistance of a reluctant spirit guide, a voodoo priestess, and a sweet, but psychotic, best friend intent on helping him become the most awesome vampire ever, Mostly Dead Melvin has to navigate the narrow path to redemption between sorta-life and un-death, without a map, a net, or a clue.
Set in the eccentric center of the Northwest, Portland, Oregon, Mostly Dead Melvin is a pop culture satire of the modern vampire mythos. [close]Giveaway dates: Jun 08 - Jul 08, 20155 copies available, 920 people requestingCountries available: US, CA, and GB

Masson held Tara in his arms as they lay together. Her nude body felt warm and soft as he gently caressed her skin. He couldn’t understand what was happening to him. He had never been in love before and he had just met Tara.
Was this really love at first sight or a fatal attraction? They had talked all night and had made love all day. Their lovemaking was completely different from any he’d ever experienced before. He’d had sex plenty of times, but this time there seem to be something pulling him into passionate love making not just sex. He found himself wanting to satisfy her completely; something he’d never cared about before.
Gently he kissed her cheeks, forehead, and then found her mouth. He kissed her long and passionately as he caressed her. He had to figure a way to keep her because he knew this woman could be his last chance to find happiness. But how could he solve the case and keep Tara?
He had a job to do, but he just couldn’t get Tara out of his thoughts. Could this be his soul mate? Did she feel the same way he did? He needed to find a way to get his mind back on the case. The parents of this woman were depending on him. They had waited ten years to find their daughter. [close]

The revolutionary spirit that had filled the air and united the people under the leadership of Sheikh Mujib, the “Father of the Nation”, seems to be dissipating.

What would you do if you had one hundred thousand dollars to spend every day for the rest of your life?
Johnny Davis is a twenty-five year old loser, still living with his parents and working the same job he did when he was sixteen.
A few days after his mom helps him open his very own checking account, Johnny discovers something unusual – a one hundred thousand-dollar deposit that is definitely not from his parents. He soon finds that whatever amount he spends in one day is fully reimbursed the following morning.

But where’s the money coming from? And how much trouble is Johnny in for when someone finds out?
The answers turn out to be far worse than he ever could have imagined.
