A Circumstantial Chance Book Excerpt:

Even though Rita knows that life has its ups and downs, she still wishes she could change her circumstances. So far, Fate has left her to live with her grandparents full-time with occasional visits from her mother, Coral, that are never quite enough to quell Rita's sadness. Rita just wants some semblance of a normal existence, but when her grandmother passes suddenly, she has no idea just how drastically her life is about to change. Now stuck in the care of her once beautiful mother, who has declined into a walking disaster, Rita attempts to sort through her grief and dysfunctional situation, with the help of prayer. In the meantime, Coral moves them from place to place, as she searches for a man she hopes can save them all. When her mother becomes pregnant, Rita mistakenly thinks her prayers have been answered once her baby brother, Toby, arrives in the world. A series of bad choices then causes her family to become homeless and lead a nomadic existence that eventually lands them in Nevada, where Rita is happy that her life seems like it might finally begin to settle down--until the unexpected happens. A Circumstantial Chance is the poignant story of a young girl who must rise above seemingly insurmountable obstacles and find comfort and hope in God's love and grace

The Obsoletes Book Excerpt:

In this “inventive, moving, and funny” (Jess Walter, #1 New York Times bestselling author) coming-of-age novel, two human-like teen robots navigate high school, basketball, and potentially life-threatening consequences if their true origins are discovered by the inhabitants of their intolerant 1980s Michigan hometown. Fraternal twin brothers Darryl and Kanga are just like any other teenagers trying to make it through high school. They have to deal with peer pressure, awkwardness, and family drama. But there’s one closely guarded secret that sets them apart: they’re robots. So long as they keep their heads down, their robophobic neighbors won’t discover the truth about them and they just might make it through to graduation. But when Kanga becomes the star of the basketball team, his worrywart brother Darryl now has to work a million times harder to keep them both out of the spotlight. Though they look, sound, and act perfectly human, if anyone in their small, depressed Michigan town were to find out what they truly are, they’d likely be disassembled by an angry mob in the middle of their school gym. “Curious, sweet, heartbreaking, and redemptive” (Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author), this is a funny, poignant look at brotherhood, xenophobia, and the limits of one’s programming.

The Multiple Murders of Mary Kelley Campbell Book Excerpt:

This book is a memoir of Janel Campbell who lost her mother when she was eleven years old. Woven through her own stories, Janel gives the backdrop of her mother's life in the high mountain desert plains of southeast Idaho, her marriage to Curtis Campbell, and the events that take her mother from the dry farm in Juniper, Idaho to Los Angeles, back to north Utah, to Seattle, back to Utah, then to New Jersey, and back to Kent, Washington, a path that eventually leads to her mother's brutal murder on March 8, 1961 at the young age of 39. Mary Kelley Campbell was a witty, high-spirited Irish girl who lost her own father at the age of six, raised by her widowed mother, older sisters, and brother. Mary was a devout Mormon, a compassionate Christian, and the mother of six children. The confessed murderer was a member of Mary's church, a Lennie-type Of Mice and Men; a large, strong, lumbering, simple-minded man oblivious of his actions and desperate to please. The helpless 22-year-old confesses to have been hypnotized by a young attractive member of their church, who he claims was obsessed with the idea of having Mary killed and taking her place as the wife of an eminent Boeing engineer. The crime was labeled by King County prosecutors as "...one of the weirdest murders in the annals of the Pacific Northwest." With Mary's legacy banished for nearly sixty years by the pain and circumstance of her death, Janel has quelled the fears she knew she had to face in order to bring her mother's tales of betrayal, heartache, love, and forgiveness to Mary's progeny, and to the world.

To Then and Back Again Book Excerpt:

To Then And Back Again is a memoir written in two parts. It's a book for those who enjoy the trials and tribulations of real life people and feel they can or would like to relate to those whom they are reading about. It's a memoir about only those richest, most interesting details concerning my life...or so I would like to think. It was written to convey those sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but many times emotionally charged experiences I've had during my life. Whether these emotions were elicited by the harsh realities of adversity that I, like many, have faced and overcome, or by the personal triumphs achieved through perseverance, and at times, through sheer willpower alone is for the reader to decide. I will however, try to express them in such a manner as to allow the readers the chance to decide for themselves. We will embark on a journey to then and back again; an odyssey that will encompass a multitude of adventures that are at times disturbing and chaotic, and at other times fascinating and humorous. These adventures will range from overcoming desperation and loneliness as a result of a hidden identity, to the anguish of a best friend and his suicide that served absolutely no purpose nor had any meaning; a suicide that gained nothing for anyone...especially himself. From an insidious monster's theft of a child's innocence, to things that just happen; catching you unaware, then kicks you right square in your pearly whites. The journey will certainly run the gamut of human experiences and emotions, and I will share my life with the reader if they wish to take the ride. And of which I'm also certain, if I do it suitably, then they will vicariously become the reader's adventures as well. The first part is about my life from the time I was about eight years old, when our family home was destroyed by fire to when I was just out of high school and first went out to live on my own. The second part will be about my life from when I was about twenty until I was thirty something. It will begin when my dad and I built my first home until I finally moved from my home town to go off to medical school.

A typical 17-year-old high school senior, Katie starts having very peculiar paranormal experiences. Neither she nor her parents understand how she has developed this gift -- or is it a curse? -- to influence the environment around her. One man helps Katie understand what's happening to her. Dr. Schlisselvasser, an anthropologist with expertise in indigenous cultures and their mystics, studies children with unusual abilities. He realizes she is developing her powers as a shaman and begins to help her with specialized training. To complicate matters, there seems to be a greater reason for the sudden appearance of Katie's gift. She is tapped on the shoulder by ancient spirits deep beneath the mountains of Arizona to take on evil villains who will stop at nothing to create an orchestrated environmental disaster for profit and greed. Katie has no desire to be a superhero, but can she understand what it means to be a shaman in time to fight an evil that is quickly approaching? In this debut novel, David Jacobs spins a supernatural and suspenseful tale intertwining one girl's coming of age and the age-old battle of good versus evil.

Crown MMA Romance Series Book Excerpt:

All four books in the Crown MMA sizzling sports romance series in one place. FIGHTER'S HEART He’s tattooed, cocky, and hot as hell. The MMA superstar everyone loves to hate. Now it’s my job to clean up his image…before it’s too late. I never meant to become the P.R. specialist for the biggest jerks in professional sports. Unfortunately, I built a reputation for turning douchebags into media darlings, and now I’m stuck. I know all about men like Jase Rawlins and have the emotional scars to prove it. I want nothing to do with him, but my boss makes an offer I can’t refuse. My dreams are finally within reach, and the more I get to know Jase, the more I wonder if I’ve gotten him all wrong. He may be bossy and infuriating, but he’s hiding a heart as massive as his ego. Can I trust the feelings growing between us when my career and his freedom are on the line? FIGHTER'S BEST FRIEND My best friend is hot, rich, and emotionally unavailable. Falling in love with him is the worst idea ever but try telling that to my heart. As a doctor who aced her way through medical school, I should be too smart to fall for Gabe Mendoza, a man who’s married to his MMA career. For years, I’ve patched his wounds and cheered him on, but I’m tired of hoping he’ll wake up and see what’s right in front of him. I’m ready to find someone who will put me first. The last thing I expect is for Gabe to scare off my dates and tell me all the dirty things he wants to do to me. He asks for a chance, but with the fight of his life on the horizon, his attention is divided, and I’m scared that when push comes to shove, I’ll be left heartbroken. Can I trust Gabe enough to fight for our happily ever after? Or was our end written before it even began? FIGHTER'S SECRET He’s too wild, too unpredictable, and completely off-limits by my coach’s decree. My life imploded and now I’m halfway around the world, sleeping in my brother's spare room, and trying to get my sh*t together. A new relationship is the last thing I need. Especially one with my coach-slash-brother’s protégé, cocky cage fighter Devon Green. Devon’s big heart, sexy swagger, and determination to coax me out of my shell appeal more than they should. I’ve spent years building my defenses, but every stolen moment with him tempts me to tear them down. Unfortunately, I need to keep my hands to myself unless I’m willing to risk losing my home, my job, and my family. I’ve stepped into the ring dozens of times before, but fighting for love is the most terrifying prospect of all. When the final buzzer sounds, will Devon and I be left standing? FIGHTER'S SECOND CHANCE Three years ago, I divorced him. Took my broken heart and left. Now I’m back, asking for something so crazy he’s almost guaranteed to say no. I met the love of my life when I was twenty. A simple collision of gazes and I fell hard. He caught me. Kept me. Protected me. Until a devastating loss tore us apart. Now, I need him again. Seth Isles may be built like a tank, with a track record that has made him one of the country’s most sought-after MMA coaches, but to me he signifies security. With the years creeping past, I’m ready for a family, and I can’t imagine anyone other than him as my baby’s father. I have nothing to offer, so I’m shocked when he agrees to my outrageous plan, but the more time we spend together, the more I remember how good things used to be. Is history doomed to repeat itself, or can our arrangement lead to something real?
