A Nickel for a Kiss

By Traci Bee / Genre: Drama & Plays

A Nickel for a Kiss

“You’re going to be a famous writer one day, baby. Watch what I tell ya.” Big Momma’s ancient words lingered in her head; ached down in her bones. Plagued by her parents’ murder suicide, haunted by dreams, Police Officer Ginger Ann Montgomery has plenty to write about. The rough draft to her first manuscript complete, Ginger can taste the New York Times Best Seller’s List.

Envious of her partner’s announcement to wed his dingbat girlfriend of six months, Ginger heads to a call – a simple 9-1-1 hang up, silently questioning her lengthy relationship with Detective Caleb Arrington. Worthy enough to co-own their pricey estate, beautiful enough to flaunt like a trophy, yet unfit to wear the Arrington name. But this routine call answered a gazillion times is anything but simple. The 9-1-1 hang up turns out to be the deadliest call in the history of the police department.

Four cops shot; three laid dead. Now the Police Department and FBI shared a common goal, backed by American’s Most Wanted: Capture the serial killer name Felicia Payne.

Riddled with guilt as the one lone survivor, Ginger finds herself in the arms of another. One willing to fulfill the cravings Caleb ignored. One who takes her hand and lures her down a path where she unites with a fate similar to her mother’s.

Lucky Penny

By L A Cotton / Genre: Coming of Age

Lucky Penny

I was his lucky Penny. He was my light in the dark, hope in despair. Our bond was one of survival, friendship… first love.

But then we were ripped apart and Blake Weston became the memory I turned to when everything else in my life fell apart.

Seven years later, a summer working at Camp Chance is supposed to be my fresh start. Beautiful scenery and the chance to better the lives of foster children – kids like me. But when my eyes land on him across the fire, time stands still and feelings come rushing back to the surface. I thought I’d moved on, tucked him away in my heart. One look into his soulful blue eyes and I know I’m wrong. Blake Weston can heal the broken parts of me. Restore my hope. Love me.

It’s our second chance. A sign we are supposed to be together.

Isn’t it?

I was twelve when I survived the accident that killed my parents. Fourteen when I survived the devil. And sixteen, when I survived a heartbreak of the worst kind.

But in my twenty-three years, Blake Weston might just be the first thing I won’t survive.

Confessions of an Unlikely Runner: A Guide to Racing and Obstacle Courses for the Averagely Fit and Halfway Dedicated

By Dana L. Ayers / Genre: Running & Jogging, Individual Sports, Sports & Outdoors

Confessions of an Unlikely Runner: A Guide to Racing and Obstacle Courses for the Averagely Fit and Halfway Dedicated

Witty, observant, and full of cringe-worthy confessions and heartwarming encouragement, Confessions celebrates both running and life.

Part Bridget Jones, part Forrest Gump, Dana Ayers chronicles her awkward mishaps and adventures in transitioning from childhood bookworm to accidental accomplished athlete. Over the last ten years, Ayers has completed a vast array of races. She runs them all while admittedly not getting much faster, much thinner, or much more disciplined—though she has managed to be on national television, split open her pants, and get electrocuted. Ayers intersperses her hilarious yet relatable struggles with insights about how and why she keeps running.

A self-proclaimed ambassador of slow runners, Ayers has completed dozens of endurance challenges, including Tough Mudder, the Ragnar Relay, Muddy Buddy, Warrior Dash, Run Amuck, the Army Ten-Miler, the Country Music Marathon, and many more mud runs, obstacles courses, and races. Her race descriptions will entertain seasoned runners and non-runners alike. Woven into the chaos of her running adventures is compassionate reassurance for anyone who feels like they aren’t fast enough, athletic enough, or strong enough to finish a tough race.

Though told with humor, Confessions’ stories share an underlying theme of Ayers’ serious reverence for the sport of running and the running community. Ayers describes experiences such as participating in a 1,000-mile relay for Boston Marathon bombing victims, and being overcome by emotion while observing wounded veterans struggling to finish a race. Her stories prove how life-enriching it can be to physically fight for something and to cheer on others who are doing the same.

For anyone who has considered trying a marathon, an obstacle race, or simply taking up running for the first time, Ayers is your ambassador. If she can do it, you can too.
