It’s Christmas Eve in the city that never sleeps, but Ebenezer doesn’t feel like celebrating. Her girlfriend of ten years has just left her, her job as a debt collector is slowly killing her, and worst of all, she hasn’t truly acted in years.

But when three spirits representing the places and ambitions closest to her heart pay her a visit, Ebenezer just might find a reason to end her life???or a reason to keep going.

Set during the global recession, this retelling of Charles Dickens’s immortal classic A Christmas Carol explores the vagaries of growing up and exchanging old dreams for new meaning.

Then Joshua Fry, the mission’s elderly commanding officer, is killed in a fall from his horse. Washington, whose experience in battle is all but nonexistent, is suddenly in command of the Virginia Regiment at a remote field in the Allegheny Mountains called Great Meadows—and the enemy is coming.

Mayhem in Manatas

 

 

A hireling’s work is never done

If people would only stop trying to kill him, Halvar the Dane might finally manage to do what he was sent to the island of Manatas to do—get the fugitive Leon di Vicenza on a boat back to Al-Andalus.

And he didn’t intend to kill two people before breakfast in the process.

However, once again murder and intrigue immerse the calif’s Hireling in more trouble than he ever wanted; and before he learns who murdered the pawnbroker, the mystery will take enough twists and turns to make a good man dizzy.

Honestly Ali Book Cover

 

Ali Caldwell thought her troubles were over, but she has a new one. She’s let her grades fall and now she’s on academic probation. She has to get her grades up or leave school.

Everyone is talking about an intriguing study system, but Ali realizes it’s nothing more than cheating, so she doesn’t use it. She studies for hours to get a perfect grade on her next test.

Instead of applauding, her teacher accuses her of cheating. To make things worse, the administration is certain that her boyfriend is the mastermind behind it all.

She needs to prove that not only didn’t she cheat, but Liam is innocent as well, before they both get kicked out of school.
