Death-Defying Nina by Lily Salter: “Death-Defying Nina, a true story about three sisters and a mother of a mid-life crisis. In her darkly humorous memoir, Lily Salter’s glamorous sister fends off death by Lou Gehrig’s disease. Lily explores her fierce love for her sister, complicated by the emotional exhaustion of Nina’s incredible will to survive.” (August 2012)

Trading Dreams by J.L. Morin: “This suspenseful redemption story depicts the pitfalls of a new-hire at a bank. When her villain CFO sets her up as a scapegoat, Jerry fights back, teetering spectacularly between life as a trading-floor cyborg and as a revolutionary battling Wall Street corruption… as if she didn’t have enough to worry about running from a murderer.” (August 2012)

Forgiveness: An Unexpected Gift by Patricia Awapara: “I find myself hiding inside my bedroom, behind an unfamiliar massive wooden dresser, kneeling on the floor and peeking out as terror crawls inside of me. My heart is beating fast, my palms are sweating and my throat is dry and hurting. I swallow hard, but careful not to make any noise. I look around without moving, searching for an answer, trying to make sense out of this situation. I noticed everything is in place with the exception of this dresser. A dresser that looks like a piece of furniture my grandma would own. On the other hand, it doesn’t really matter where it came from. For now, it’s serving a great purpose and shielding me from danger.” (August 2012)
