Seminole by Tina Siemens

Seminole by Tina SiemensPresident Carter recently made time between surgeries to get his. Now, you can get yours too. I’ll send you a signed paperback. This true story starts in 1569 and moves through the 1800s, into the early 1900s. There are trains, Indians, Mennonites, horses, a prison escape, meetings with presidents, and a beloved sheepdog. By 1977, my family’s story was front-page international news. We had somehow made it to Texas, but were about to lose our money, property, and potential citizenship. My sweeping saga will take you from snowy Canada to the sunbaked lands of Mexico, and on to the unique Llano Estacado of West Texas. If you like historical fiction that has relevance to today’s immigration battles, you’ll love this book. And if you’ve heard the phrase, “It’ll take an act of Congress,” I lived it. Just ask President Carter! Check out my book trailer on my Author Profile Page. And take a look at my website: SeminoleTheBook.Com.

The Vanishing Sky by L. Annette Binder

The Vanishing Sky by L. Annette BinderFor readers of Warlight and The Invisible Bridge, an intimate, harrowing story about a family of German citizens during World War II.

In 1945, as the war in Germany nears its violent end, the Huber family is not yet free of its dangers or its insidious demands. Etta, a mother from a small, rural town, has two sons serving their home country: her elder, Max, on the Eastern front, and her younger, Georg, at a school for Hitler Youth. When Max returns from the front, Etta quickly realizes that something is not right-he is thin, almost ghostly, and behaving very strangely. Etta strives to protect him from the Nazi rule, even as her husband, Josef, becomes more nationalistic and impervious to Max's condition. Meanwhile, miles away, her younger son Georg has taken his fate into his own hands, deserting his young class of battle-bound soldiers to set off on a long and perilous journey home.

THE VANISHING SKY is a World War II novel as seen through a German lens, a story of the irreparable damage of war on the home front, and one family's participation-involuntary, unseen, or direct-in a dangerous regime. Drawing inspiration from her own father's time in the Hitler Youth, L. Annette Binder has crafted a spellbinding novel about the daring choices we make for country and for family.

Little Scratch by Rebecca Watson

Little Scratch by Rebecca    Watson*GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

In the formally experimental tradition of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers and Ducks, Newburyport comes a dazzlingly original shot-in-the-arm of a debut that reveals a young woman's every thought over the course of one deceptively mundane day.

She wakes up, goes to work. Watches the clock and checks her phone. But underneath this monotony there's something else going on: something under her skin.


Relayed in interweaving columns that chart the feedback loop of memory, the senses, and modern distractions with wit and precision, our narrator becomes increasingly anxious as the day moves on: Is she overusing the heart emoji? Can drinking eight glasses of water a day really fix everything? Why is the etiquette of the women's bathroom be so fraught? How does she define "rape"? And why can't she stop scratching?

Fiercely moving and slyly profound, little scratch is a defiantly playful look at how our minds function in--and survive--the darkest moments.

Stella Wiseman was a child TV star, but there’s nothing glamorous about her life now. Alone in her thirties, she’s lost her parents and her friends and she’s stuck in a dead-end job. But just as she hits rock bottom she meets Marco, a charismatic older man who offers to get her back on her feet. He seems too good to be true.

Is he?

She appreciates the money he lavishes on her. And the pills. But are the pills just helping her sleep, or helping her avoid her problems?

With Stella’s life still in freefall, Marco whisks her away to a secluded cottage where she is isolated from everyone except him. But the closer he pulls her, the worse she gets. He tells her it’s all in her head, and she just needs time away from the world.

No longer sure what’s real and what’s not, Stella begins to question whether she was wrong to trust Marco. Was she wrong to trust herself? Is the one person she thought was fighting for her survival actually her biggest threat?
