A Breath Too Late

Seventeen-year-old Ellie had no hope left. Yet the day after she dies by suicide, she finds herself in the midst of an out-of-body experience. She is a spectator, swaying between past and present, retracing the events that unfolded prior to her death.

But there are gaps in her memory, fractured pieces Ellie is desperate to re-assemble. There’s her mother, a songbird who wanted to break free from her oppressive cage. The boy made of brushstrokes and goofy smiles who brought color into a gray world. Her brooding father, with his sad puppy eyes and clenched fists. And Ellie’s determined to find out why a piece of her was left behind.

Dead Girl Walking

The beautiful young woman on the stretcher could be on her honeymoon. Chestnut hair tumbles around a pretty face, rose petals tangled in the loose strands. But the bandage around her forehead tells a different tale, as Emergency Room Nurse Jessie Novak desperately battles to keep her alive. Jessie’s thoughts are racing-who shot this beautiful young woman and more importantly, why?


Ann Hart’s life hangs by a thread, and Jessie cannot bear to see this beautiful young woman die without justice being done. Being a nurse is like hunting for clues, and Jessie is sure she can find the person who hurt Ann. She also asks her friend Detective Sam Dallas for help digging into Ann’s past. But then Jessie receives a gift that sends shivers up her spine: a huge bouquet of blood-red roses, just like the ones in Ann’s hair…

Secrets of Redemption

None of this was supposed to happen.

It all started so innocently. Charlie only stopped in Redemption, Wisconsin, because she was lost.

She never meant to stay.

She never meant to fall in love.

She never meant to bring the danger she was running from into this wholesome midwestern town.

Except Redemption had some secrets of its own … and they were even more deadly than what she was trying to escape.

Swallow the Rainbow

The worst part about the tornado isn’t the car on Savannah Young’s roof. It’s not her missing mom or her missing cat. It’s not the news that the power might not be restored for ten days or the fact that she’s stranded with the neighbors.

She’s out of pain pills. And she doesn’t have any way to reach Toby to get more.

And when withdrawal sets in, she’s going to get very, very sick.

As residents in Savannah’s subdivision come together in the aftermath of this historic severe weather event, Savannah wrestles with her opioid addiction, her grief for surviving the car crash that killed her brother, and her guilt for being The One Who Survived—twice.

Unexpected Opportunity

Would you be willing to chance dying to come out of a coma? Would you do the same if it was your son’s life?

Mary and Senator Tad Williams pushed their son Justin to go on a date that went horribly wrong.

Now, they try to figure out a way to help their son out of a coma. At almost $5,000 a day for ICU expenses, their insurance options are running out.

Amber, Nick, and Jacob built a new immersive game system for the future. The only problem is, at $800 a day, no one can afford it.

Dr. Dubois wrote a paper about how you might help a person out of a coma, but it was crushed under the might of the medical lobbyists on Capitol Hill.

Now, the three groups need each other to save a life, fight the establishment, and help a young man in need.

The only challenge is, Justin can die in real life if he dies in the game.

Remedy

It’s a mystery – why is Cara so sick? It feels like she’s been sick all her life . . . but she and her mom have never stayed in one place long enough for doctors to really understand what’s happening to her. Now, at fourteen, Cara is tired of being tired, and sick of being sick. She’s trying to get better . . . but it’s only getting worse.

Unable to afford the care she needs, Cara’s mom starts a Caring for Cara campaign online. The money starts pouring in. But something’s not right to Cara. And the harder she looks, the less she understands.

Bridging the Gap

Eric Walters isn’t exactly living his best life. He works in the IT department of a hospital, where he begrudgingly interacts with his coworkers while counting the minutes until his next break. He’s stuck in a rut and oblivious to nearly everything around him, which frustrates no one more than his best friend, Sara.

Eric’s routine is interrupted by a mysterious, silent little boy, triggering a chain of events that force Eric out of his bubble. He soon realizes nothing is as he believed: not his job, not his boss, and certainly not his relationship with Sara. When Sara draws away from him, he worries his realization has come too late and struggles to find a way to make things right.

As he pieces together his plan for redemption, he learns Sara is in the path of a devastating tragedy that could take her away from him forever.

The Rage Colony

Behind the protective walls of the Colony…

Layla grows restless. The Colony is filled with secrets, and James keeps her in the dark. So when a woman from her youth opens a crack into her past, Layla discovers everything she believed about the Colony has been a lie—even the baby she carries.

Burdened with an unnerving pregnancy and tormented by terrifying hallucinations and blackouts, she sets out to uncover the unspeakable truths inside the Colony’s walls.

A Shot at Normal

Dr. Villapando told me to get a good attorney. He wasn’t serious. But I am. I’m going to sue my parents.

Juniper Jade’s parents are hippies. They didn’t attend the first Woodstock, but they were there for the second one. The Jade family lives an all-organic homeschool lifestyle that means no plastics, no cell phones, and no vaccines. It isn’t exactly normal, but it’s the only thing Juniper has ever known. She doesn’t agree with her parents on everything, but she knows that to be in this family, you’ve got to stick to the rules. That is, until the unthinkable happens.

Juniper contracts the measles and unknowingly passes the disease along, with tragic consequences. She is shell-shocked. Juniper knows she is responsible and feels simultaneously helpless and furious at her parents, and herself.

Now, with the help of Nico, the boy who works at the library and loves movies and may just be more than a friend, Juniper comes to a decision: she is going to get vaccinated. Her parents refuse so Juniper arms herself with a lawyer and prepares for battle. But is waging war for her autonomy worth losing her family? How much is Juniper willing to risk for a shot at normal?

Kona

As a childhood cancer survivor, Melanie has seen a few good years with no evidence of disease, but in the back of her mind, she is always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Being a normal teen is what she has always wanted, so when she’s offered a dream job at the Oasis Aquarium, she jumps at the chance.

No one has told Melanie about the gorgeous Chase MaKenzie she is paired to be working with, nor the new best friend she’ll find in the watery depths. Melanie’s world is about to change forever.

The No Dill Zone

A murder right before election day might decide the vote!

A vacancy on the Spicetown City Council sends Mayor Cora Mae Bingham scrambling to control the squabbles between two grown men sliding into election day in fisticuffs, one trying to disqualify the other.

Amidst the election day antics, Cora Mae helps mitigate merchants’ concerns, soothe homeowner association hostilities, welcome new residents to Spicetown, and solve a murder that could create another City Hall vacancy.

Women of a Certain Rage

After her son leaves for college, Leah Glaser is left at loose ends. Then her BFF’s son is accused of murdering a resident at the nursing home where she works.

She knows he’s innocent and jumps in to protect him. She’ll need everything she learned as a mom – and the help of her friends – to clear his name and protect the vulnerable seniors in her care. As she gets closer to the answers, will one of the innocents she must protect be herself?

It’s a mistake to underestimate the power of a mother. It’s a huge mistake to underestimate a quartet of them.
