Portrait of Her Book Excerpt:

My heart is broken in two. Gosh, I really never knew it could be so finite or just this definitive. I never knew a slice could be so even-or a paring knife this sharp. They say, "Out of sight, out of mind." They say, "Friendship is the only rose without a thorn." They say, "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." And they say: "Happiness is two scoops of ice cream-A warm puppy." The other day, Peter said, "You'll never have as much money as me! You'll never have a career like mine! You'll always be behind me, trailing!" After a twenty-six-year-old woman unsuccessfully tries to hang herself in her bedroom, she begins to reminisce about her past loves. There was Brian, her first serious boyfriend, and then Cal, the one they called "Mr. Personality." But it's Peter, a famous, older author with whom she has been involved for three years, that she just can't quite let go. A conversation with her mother opens the window into her soul, helping her realize that she is not defined solely by her relationships, but something much deeper

Sesame Street Ready for School Book Excerpt:

Sesame Street, the most trusted name in preschool education, offers a complete, user-friendly guide to help parents prepare their children, ages 2-5, for academic, physical, and social success. For the past 50 years, Sesame Street has stood at the forefront of child development, stimulating and nurturing the minds of preschoolers not only through the iconic TV show, but also through books, games, mobile apps, and community engagement initiatives. With Ready for School!, Senior VP of Curriculum and Content at Sesame Workshop Dr. Rosemarie Truglio shares all the research-based, curriculum-directed school readiness skills that have made Sesame Street the preeminent children's TV program, and that every parent needs in order to get their preschooler ready for lifelong learning. Each of the book's eight chapters focuses on a key area: language, literacy, math, science, logic & reasoning, social & emotional development, healthy habits, and the arts. An essential dynamic of Ready for School! is its emphasis on the importance of play in a child's learning process. To respond to that need, dozens of "Play & Learn" activities are included to aid parents in educating their children: at the kitchen table, on the bus, in the park, or in the preschool classroom while playing together. In addition, the book recommends scores of hints, tips, ideas for useful products, and deep-dives on more complex topics for parents, all designed to make preparing young kids for school easy and joyful.

More Than Enough Book Excerpt:

There are two reasons I can’t come home to Reckless Falls. Their names are Callum Reese and Grayson Abbott. What kind of girl falls in love with two men at the same time? Especially her older brother’s two best friends? Not a good girl like me. I’m a successful children’s book author with a big city career. That should be enough to satisfy me. And I should be strong enough to handle one week back home for Christmas. But mistletoe and champagne are a deadly combination. I didn’t mean to kiss Cal while Gray was watching. And I didn’t mean to kiss Gray in front of Cal. And what happens after that? All three of us claim it was a fluke. A one-time mistake. Something totally crazy that can never happen again. Then it happens again. And again. Now I’m falling for two men. They both say they have to have me. I can’t possibly choose between them. But what if I don’t have to? Disclaimer: Reckless Heat exposes the steamier side of the small town of Reckless Falls. This book is a menage romance, where two men fall for one lucky woman, and give all their attention to her. (no MM scenes) It might be a little spicier than you'd expect, but Reckless Falls is no ordinary small town!

The Dog Lover Unit Book Excerpt:

"Enter the intense world of both the dogs and people who form the K9 corps. Every dog has its own unique personality." —Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation and Animals Make us Human An acclaimed poet, Rachel Rose never expected to spend her nights careening along the roads in high-speed chases or searching the woods for armed suspects. Yet once she decided to meet the people who devoted their lives to police K9 units, she found herself signing up for the ride-alongs, training runs, and other challenges that these courageous people–and canines–face on a daily basis. In The Dog Lover Unit, Rose introduces readers to police dogs and their handlers in the United States, Canada, Britain, and France (where their group's official name translates as "the dog lover unit"). She’s there to catch a criminal with Constable Matt Noel and Blackie; to patrol with Sheriff Gene Davis and Gunner; and to witness the tragic funeral of Constable Dave Ross, where K9 Danny follows the coffin, looking for his master. With insight, humor, and awe, this book reveals the feats that these human and canine teams accomplish, and the emotional and physical risks that they take for one another, and for us.

Creatures of the Night Book Excerpt:

Vampires and werewolves; phantoms and phantasms: looming out of the fog leaps the menacing spectre of the lycanthrope, ghoul or blood-crazed zombie. Intrigued by some of the most sinister, yet at the same time most compelling, legends of western civilization, Gregory L Reece dusts down his stake and crucifix, loads his silver bullets and takes off into the wilds in search of answers and fresh adventures. Rummaging around in crumbling tombs and cobwebbed sarcophagi, his latest quest leads him into the haunted realm of the dead and the undead: of those carnivorous, nocturnal hunters that might perhaps better be left undisturbed. Why, he asks, is our culture obsessed by the eerie and the macabre? Why, despite its horrors, does the 'dark side' of the supernatural - its seances and ghost-hunting, demonic possession and the occult - call to us with such dangerous allure? Whether tracking night-stalking werewolves, chanting black magic mantras with Satanists, or interviewing a funereal modern-day Count Dracula, Reece is determined to uncover the truth. A wry exploration of a secret and secretive subculture, "Creatures of the Night" is at the same time a bold and startling journey into a wraithlike world that has so often seemed to lie beyond the limits of rational comprehension - until now.

A doorway to the past reveals a warning for the future in this time-travel adventure by the author of Michael’s Wife Just released from prison after serving time for a false drug charge, Aletha Kingman decamps to Telluride, Colorado, for a fresh start. One day when she’s sketching an abandoned miner’s shack, she encounters a young girl, Callie, who’s been transported from the turn of the century. Aletha follows Callie back in time to the rough-and-tumble mining town where the impoverished girl faces a future of disrepute and her brother Bram is caught in the bloody conflict between hard-working miners and their bosses. Together with her newfound friend, the enigmatic Cree, Aletha is determined to use her foresight from the future to make a difference in the past. Suffused with the social and political history of the American West, The Threshold crosscuts between the disparate worlds of glitzy modern-day Telluride and its past incarnation as a gritty, turbulent mining town, brilliantly posing the question of whether we can—or should—alter the course of history.
