Minor Snobs by Daniel Amory: ”Set in Chicago, this book introduces Tom Sanders, a handsome, conscientious, and astute young law graduate. Amid a vivid, fevered summer following graduation, the story follows Tom as he becomes a witness to obsession and tragedy, hate and love, violence and passion, and hope and despair.” (February 2011)

Belvoir by S.A. Huggins: ”This paranormal suspense novel set near the end of the Civil War Set uses superstition, betrayal, and vengeance to conjure a world where the evils of man survive death, and the consequences of war collide with everyday living.” (March 2011)

Sweet Song by Terry Persun: “Leon, raised black but an outcast from both cultures, fi nds himself suddenly on his own-and passing for white. Wrestling with a divided heritage in a world where honesty, even with friends, might prove fatal, he falls in with dispossessed thieves, mill workers, saloon keepers, musicians, businessmen, thugs, freedom loving idealists and malevolent racists-a vivid panorama from America’s past. This tender, raw, provocative novel speaks from the heart about where we’ve come from and who we are.” (March 2011)
