Sandstorm Book Excerpt:

Stories are told of the wild Tribes who control the untamable Desert, the bloody battles that are waged there, but little is actually known. In a place where alliances are as shifting as the sands, one Tribe is universally regarded as the most dangerous: the Ghost Tribe, led by the bloodthirsty Sheik Hashim and his son Sahayl, called the Sandstorm. Sahayl is not his father, however, and would rather see the Tribes find a way to live peacefully. When a meeting to negotiate peace with the Falcon Tribe goes wrong, nobody is more disappointed than Sahayl, especially as it means he'll never come to better know the beautiful, blue-eyed Falcon who challenged him. Then the violence in the Desert abruptly worsens as Tribes believed long dead begin to appear, and sorting ally from enemy becomes impossible. To save his Tribe and the Desert, Sahayl must take drastic measures that will reshape the Desert in a way that only a Sandstorm can...

Sandstorm Book Excerpt:

Former foreign correspondent Charles Mortimer is all washed up, living a hand-to-mouth existence in Manhattan, wondering how things could have gone so wrong for him. A chance discovery of a newspaper obituary takes him back to the beginning of his career, when he was a young, hopeful man reporting from the Sahara Desert in the company of beautiful French photographer Celeste Dumas. The two narrowly escape death by bullet, grenade, thirst and heatstroke and, ultimately, drowning. By the end of their adventure, Mortimer has begun his life as a successful, cynical journalist. Fifteen years roll by, and Mortimer finds himself again in Algeria, where he perpetrates the great error of his professional life and realizes, finally, what it was he lost so long ago in the desert wastes. By the winner of the Author's Club First Novel Award, Guardian First Book Award and The Times First Book Award.

In Your Eyes a Sandstorm Book Excerpt:

"In this impossible task of representation, Arthur Neslen writes a book that is impossible to put down. In Your Eyes a Sandstorm is where Joyce's The Dubliners meets Howard Zinn's A People’s History. Thrilling, compassionate, and unflinching narratives and dialogues converge the critical events of contemporary Palestinian being into the present. Palestinians are field negroes, house negroes, ghettoized schlemiels and pariahs, ethnically cleansed, colonized, occupied, militant, pacifist, doctors, zookeepers, rappers, journalists, teachers, etc. They are also an original people who will continue to write a new story in the book of survival and hope, of overcoming suffering and, hopefully, of going beyond power." —Fady Joudah, author of The Earth in the Attic and translator of Mahmoud Darwish’s If I Were Another “In this wonderful collection, one can hear the Palestinians speaking for themselves and not through others who may distort or dim their messages. Very few collections have brought home to us so vividly and authentically what it means to be a Palestinian today.” —Ilan Pappe, author of The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty "This highly original work is an important contribution to Palestine literature, especially in the way that personal narrative interacts with and enriches collective-national and public memory." —Nur Masalha, author of Expulsion of the Palestinians: The Concept of "Transfer" in Zionist Political Thought "Neslen powerfully gives voice to Palestinians, humanizes them, and reveals the complexities of Palestinian society." —Sara Roy, author of Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza “A remarkable achievement at the junction of Middle East politics and anthropology, this collection of interviews with Palestinians from eight successive generations—defined according to historical watersheds—is a necessary complement to treatise-like readings on the Palestinians and the Israel-Palestine conflict. It offers the means for a reasoned empathy with the Palestinian people, and provides a perfect counterpoint to the ‘journey through the Israeli psyche’ which Arthur Neslen took his readers on in his previous book.” —Gilbert Achcar, author of The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives

A standalone military romance in the gripping Pine Harbour series of small town romances from ten-time USAT bestselling author Zoe York. Captain Sean Foster came back from war broken from the inside out. And he doesn't care about being fixed. Not even by a woman who followed him halfway around the world due to some misguided loyalty. Jenna Kowalczyk had two weeks with a man who stole her heart. They promised each other forever, but one brutal explosion proved that promise to be paper-thin. She should leave him in the past. That's what he wants her to do. But from the second the determined midwife shows up in Pine Harbour, she knows she's staying--no matter how much heartache is in store for her.
