A Thirty-Something Girl by L.M.Stull
Life has been anything but kind, and everything that can go wrong has. At an age when life should be coming together, and questions should start to be answered, Hope finds herself feeling very alone and terribly confused. As her life spirals out of control, she realizes she needs help. And she needs it quickly.
With the love and support of some dear friends, Hope slowly begins to find her true self, and along the way, she meets someone. Someone who makes her feel like living to see another day might just be worth it.
But with happiness, comes pain. Pain from a past that simply won't be forgotten. Walking a dangerously fine line between joy and utter despair, Hope wonders if happy endings really do exist. And if they do, is there one waiting for her?
The Moon in Deep Winter by Lee Polevoi
This literary thriller revolves around Parker Sloane. When he returns from a dismal foray into third-world cash-smuggling to his childhood home in the woods of New England, it seems he’s seeing his country and his blended stepfamily for the first time—and finding both just as twitchy, desperate, paranoid and unpredictable as the underworld types he thought he’d escaped.
Before he can even unpack, Parker goes head-to-head with his relatives—his tyrannical stepfather, seething younger brother, newly evangelical mother, and his alluring younger half-sister Rita—and with the demons they never exorcised.
Delicately but disastrously, Parker attempts to keep his family from imploding, unaware that they have their own plans for escape. The Moon in Deep Winter combines the dark comedy of the Coen brothers with the doomed lyricism of Denis Johnson, creating an airtight world of homicidal family dysfunction.
Lillies by Iain Rowan
"Alex thought of his grandfather, of the way that the river at home curved between the fields and shone secret and silver in the light of the moon, of the trains full of soldiers that rattled off up into the hills towards the mud and the fear, and of the dead that walked the city."
Lilies is a short story of the dead and the living, in a city at war where it is hard to tell one from the other, and where the men who carry the lilies commit the strangest of murders and kill the already dead.
Lilies was chosen for Stephen Jones' Best New Horror anthology and recommended for the British Fantasy Society's Best Short Story. Iain's short fiction has been reprinted in anthologies, won awards, and been the basis for a novel shortlisted for the UK Crime Writers' Association's Debut Dagger award.
Poppies by Deena Thompson
One Moment can change a life time....
In 1893 an out of control train de-rails Jobeth Robert’s picture-perfect life, taking her parents’ lives and leaving her at the mercy of an evil couple who destroy all they touch.
When her foster father brutally steals her innocence Jobeth runs away to save her life.
Shattered, Jobeth is ill-equipped to face life’s harshness. Her seemingly endless travels take her through a foreign world of racism, prostitution and murder. Bearing emotional scars, she meets her true love and they piece together a life with children. But her view of the world has been warped. Unaware of the favouritism she bestows, she unwittingly pits daughter against daughter and suffers the tragic consequence. But in the darkness there is also light, unlikely friendships, undying loyalty, love and a family to replace the one she lost. All the while, a red flower trails her. A new path awaits not only her but also those who will follow. Spanning two generations, POPPIES clashes and finally comes together in a fury of drama and release.
They are seeds scattered by the hands of fate . . . abandoned to the winds of time....
