Book excerpt: The strand of pearls Janie's mother gave her for her birthday represents the story recounted in Pearls For My Birthday. The thread running through the pearls symbolizes the life journey she took while she cared for her mother who had lung cancer. The pearls are symbolic of the episodes in a daughter's struggle to keep her mom alive, against medical odds. Anecdotes related by Janie's mother's friends punctuate the book. Their wise tales put a knot of hope between each iridescent pearl Janie clung to, as she was pulled to a new understanding. Pearls For My Birthday is about love, compassion, and forgiveness between a mother and a daughter, whose roles are often reversed during that four months. Janie's mother revisited her life story, filled with passion, her fears, and the aspirations of her youth. She revealed her best times and her worst times, her weaknesses and her strengths. Eventually, with her mother's guidance, Janie accepted her mom was dying. Not morbid or maudline, this is a celebration of life.

Canaan Creek, South Carolina, in the 1950s is a tiny town where the close-knit African-American community is united by long-term friendships and church ties. Bonnie Wilder has lived here, on Blackberry Corner, all her life, and would be content but for her deep desire to have a child. She and her husband Naz cannot conceive, and he refuses to adopt. Even the support of her outrageous best friend Thora—to whom Bonnie tells everything—can’ t help fill the emptiness inside her. Then Naz finds a blanketed infant on the banks of Canaan Creek, and suddenly Bonnie’s life is transformed. She has found her calling. Together with Thora and the rest of the hilarious, tough, and all-too-human women from her church group, Bonnie creates an underground railroad for unwanted babies. But one of these precious gifts will come back to haunt her: a deception begun in good faith comes full circle, ultimately forcing Bonnie to find the courage to confront a difficult truth at the center of her own life.

Book excerpt: Dead Cert is a classic mystery from Dick Francis, one of the greatest thriller writers of all time. 'Admiral met the fence perfectly. He rose to it as if flight were not only for birds. And he fell.' Alan York's friend, jockey Bill Davidson, was killed in Admiral's fall. After the race, York visits the fence and discovers a coil of wire lying beside the fence post and signs of where the wire had been attached. The fall was no accident - but murder. Unable to convince the police of this, York is forced to turn amateur sleuth and is soon on the trail of a ruthless gang of race-fixers operating out of Brighton. Now Alan's caught in a new race: find the gang's leaders before the gang catches up with him . . . Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, Dead Cert is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Every gift has consequences . . . FEARLESS Let's get this out of the way upfront: I can hear minds. And yes, that's about as much fun as it sounds. As long as I can remember, I've been the loner, the crazy girl who answers words that no one has spoken out loud. It doesn't help that I'm the perennial new kid in town, too; my family moves around so much that I'm constantly learning how to tune out a fresh set of voices. But then we move to King, Florida. It doesn't take me long to realize that this town is different. King was founded by magic and steeped in mystery, and I'd be intrigued if I wasn't worried about surviving. Ms. Lacusta, the science teacher, leads some weird exclusive club of girls, and she's trying to recruit me. That doesn't sit well with Nell Massler, the ultimate mean girl whose extracurricular activities include blood rituals. And mine is the blood she wants next. Entangled in a web of first love, quirky and secretive townsfolk, magic and blood spells, I discover the town's secrets aren't just bizarre . . . they're deadly. BREATHLESS I am not having the senior year I wanted. First of all, my boyfriend--and the love of my life--Michael goes off to college, leaving me on my own in the mystical--and sometimes scary--town of King. I think I can take care of myself during my last year here, but it turns out there are all kinds of threats ready to prove me wrong. First, I'm being stalked by a local preacher who suspects I have supernatural gifts. (He's right.) The hot new boy at school is flirting with me like crazy. Oh, and I'm being blackmailed by my chemistry teacher--who just might be a witch. I'm going to need all of my many talents--and a little help from unexpected sources--just to keep my head above water. . .literally. RESTLESS Aside from the fact that I can hear other people's thoughts, I used to be a fairly boring girl. But then I moved to King, Florida . . . and everything in my life went crazy. When I agreed to allow Ms. Lacusta to help me develop my powers, I had no idea how deep and dark the journey would become. Trapped between fascination and fear, I end up moving farther away from my friends and family, even from my boyfriend, Michael. Leading a double life forces me into decisions that will threaten my sanity and my future... and the very lives of those I love. ENDLESS After the insanity that was my senior year in high school, my life is back to what passes for normal. No witches are trying to kill me. No preachers are threatening to drown me. I'm away at college with my boyfriend, and I'm learning to control my powers. Everything is finally perfect . . . until it isn't. When my new part-time job leads to more than I bargained for, I'm thrown into a deadly fight against forces of evil that I didn't even know existed. Mastering my extraordinary gifts--and drawing on the strength of an endless love--may be the only weapons that can guarantee my happily-ever-after. Save Tomorrow is a series of paranormal romances that begins in the small town of King, Florida, winds through the Serendipity and Recipe for Death books, and finally culminates in Age of Aquarius, the inevitable showdown that ties all the characters together in a fight to stop the ultimate evil.
