Smile Book Excerpt:

27 short stories. 27 narrators. 1 terrifying puzzle. There’s something disquieting about a town with too many twins, a killer pie, and a man with two different color eyes. When Cain, a devilish stranger with a candle wax smile, moves into a rural southern town people are brutally murdered with alarming rapidity. It’s up to a band of curious high schoolers, a decrepit hermit, and a grieving mortician to solve the riddle and keep the town from being destroyed. That is if they can survive cannibalistic dentists, body-snatching demons, and oftentimes worst of all, each other. {Smile} is a horror novel made up of 27 short stories narrated by 27 unique voices. Each story is told in alphabetical order by title, but when combined they interweave to tell an intense and twisted tale about one man/demon/thing’s quest to become human through manipulation and murder.

The Gutbucket Quest Book Excerpt:

A blues musician is blasted into a parallel world in a novel that’s “a houserockin’ good time” cowritten by the New York Times–bestselling author (Booklist). Slim’s a Texas bluesman of a certain age, down on his luck and just about broke—but hey, that’s what the blues are all about. He loves his music: “Not the popular blues, homogenized, synthesized, and zombilized; but the real down-home gut-bucket blues.” Then one day the music loves him back. In a single hot burst of lightning that comes straight up out of the ground, Slim finds himself in Tejas. It’s a little bit magic and a whole lot different, but the blues are the same. And the blues—manifest here in the form of a maple-necked, pearl-gray Fender Stratocaster with blue-chrome pickups, aka the Gutbucket—need him and need him bad. The Strat’s fallen into the hands of T-Bone Pickens and his Vipers, who want to suck up all its power and turn it to evil. Slim’s off and running on the Gutbucket Quest, with the help of his new mentor, rhythm guitarist Progress T. Hornsby, and a purely unstoppable blues singer named Nadine.

A NEW ORIGINAL HALLMARK MOVIE: THE SECRETS OF BELLA VISTA! From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs “…sweet, crisp and juicy.”—Elin Hilderbrand “A powerful story of love, loss, hope and redemption.”—Kirkus, Starred Review Tess Delaney makes a living restoring stolen treasures to their owners. People like Annelise Winther, who has just been reunited with her mother’s long gone necklace, worth a sum that could change her life. To Annelise, whose family was torn apart during WWII, the necklace represents her history, and the value is in its memories. But Tess’s own history is filled with gaps: a father she never met, a mother who spent more time traveling than with her daughter. Then the enigmatic Dominic Rossi arrives on her San Francisco doorstep with the news that the grandfather she never knew is in a coma and that she’s destined to inherit half of his apple orchard estate called Bella Vista. The rest is willed to Isabel Johansen, the half-sister she didn’t know she had. With Dominic and Isabel by her side, Tess discovers world where family comes first and the roots of history run deep. A place where falling in love is not only possible, but inevitable. And in a season filled with new experiences, Tess begins to see the truth in something Annelise once told her: if you don’t believe memories are worth more than money, then perhaps you’ve not made the right kind of memories. Wiggs deftly weaves a narrative that takes the reader from present day California to Denmark during WWII to tell a story of family ties both old and new—and the moments that connect our hearts.
