The Wexford Book Excerpt:

Winner for the 2010 SOS Marine Heritage Award The steamer Wexford, with her flared bow, tall masts, and her open, canvas-sided hurricane deck, charmed spectators as she carried cargo across the Great Lakes. The romance and adventure of her British and French history in the South American trade followed her. Under newly appointed 24-year-old captain Bruce Cameron, her fateful final voyage was punctuated with opportunities to be saved from destruction , but his persistence in trying to make port at Goderich led to tragedy - a victim of the storm of 1913. Over a period of 87 years, she eluded many efforts to locate her remains, but was finally discovered in 2000 by a sailor using a fish-finding device. Since then, she has been visited by thousands, but sadly plundered. Our story traces her history from her British origins in 1883, through the transition to become a "Laker," the eventful storm, the search, and her ultimate discovery in southern Lake Huron, and the controversy over how she should be protected.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick Seven Days in June comes a hot and hilarious borough-crossed love story about a Manhattan beauty editor, a Brooklyn writer, and the attraction that takes them by storm. Billie Burke is smart, endlessly driven, and fabulous—it’s no accident she landed a job as the beauty editor at the world’s leading fashion magazine. Caught in a whirlwind of long office hours and fashion industry party-hopping, she hasn’t had time to focus on her nonexistent love life. Instead, she’s been living vicariously through her friends. Then she meets Jay Lane, a gorgeous up-and-coming Brooklyn writer who pretty much knocks her right out of her stilettos. Soon Billie finds herself doing things with Jay in broad daylight that she’s never even dared to think about in the privacy of her own head. In no time at all she’s absolutely addicted to an affair that’s as crazy and seductive as New York itself. But there’s a lot she doesn’t know about Jay, whose rough past seems determined to start creeping back into their present....

New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery is at her heart-stirring best in this witty, richly layered story about friendship, love, and breaking free. In high school, studious Jayne Scott and wild child Rebecca Worden became unlikely best friends—a tie that endured even after Rebecca fled her family to live overseas. After Jayne’s mother passed away, she became part unpaid assistant, part surrogate daughter to the wealthy Wordens. But now, ten years later, Rebecca is coming home to L.A. to cause havoc for Elizabeth, the mother who all but rejected her. And Jayne finds herself pulled deeper into the Wordens’ complicated family dynamics—especially when Rebecca’s brother, David, returns as well. David is the man Jayne always wanted and knew she could never have. But when he gravitates toward her in spite of Elizabeth’s protests, her vow to escape the family’s shadow is put to the ultimate test. And as lies are shattered and true feelings exposed, Jayne must decide where loyalty ends, and love begins. . . .

Skin Ink Magazine Ollie Tye Krakow Killer Con Sara X Book Excerpt:

This issue of Skin & lnk is our most eclectic ever with articles ranging from inkedup female country singers to ceremonially tattooed headhunters indigenous to the Philippines-and everything in between! Well, we've set this up as an international whirlwind tattoo experience, so let's start much farther than across the pond with Travel in' Mick in Krakow, Poland where he spent a long weekend documenting some incredible examples and info on one of Europe's premier tattoo events. Before heading back to the States don't forget to check out the aforementioned historical piece on the lgorot headhunters of the Philippines. Then we have two stops in the UK to check out the work of the sensational Ollie Tye's conceptual realistic portrait work, and the hyperrealistic work of Jose Contreras' black and grey portraits and rich color pieces. Those two can do it all at a super high level. OK, back in the good ol' USA and we really have a select series of features for you to enjoy and get inspired by. First we hit the Big Apple hard with Brooklyn's own Leathernecks Tattoo, headed up by ex-Marine Kenny "K-Bar." He and his busy team of ink slingers have been kicking out some great work. Then it's on to the New York City Tattoo Convention. No one knew what to expect with this being its first year out of the historic Roseland and in its new digs, but it was a massive success! Speaking of hitting things hard, we stopped in at the Black N' Blue Bowl where hardcore meets ink in a mosh pit of tattoos and sweat. Time to visit some friends from around the country. Frank Weber kicks it old school, Mariann and Jasmin fight for animal rights, and don't forget the Dana Brunson and Nate Beavers columns, plus our gorgeous goofball cover girl Sara X.

The Plan for Darkness never rests. It sees through the electronic darkness of the electromagnetic pulses and the Infection’s Revenge Plague delivered by a terrorist army to bring powerful nations around the world to their knees. Within days, everything that has ever been produced for consumers has been hoarded, spoiled, traded, stolen, or eaten. Drug-dependent people watch their life-saving medications dwindle, fearing the future. They understand that their destiny will be like those lurking behind the other side of a locked door. The dead rise while the living struggle in a world that’s devoid of modern conveniences. The enemy refuses to die, let alone stay dead. Survivors struggle against their fears of the unimaginable, the unknown, the breakdown of civilization, and time. The Plan for Darkness follows Tess, a brave young woman determined to survive; Sani, a young man hoping to keep his family safe; Ratner, a man faced with horrors beyond his imagining; and Jimmy, an old man who finds a new lease on life as he fights for those around him. Together, these allies fight against a menace unleashed on the globe, but can they survive the terrible fallout?
