Tom Conlan, MY JOURNEY BEGINS WHERE THE ROAD ENDS: “Back to the simple earth” — Tom Conlan comes by his love of the land naturally, generations after a beloved grandfather worked and saved to escape Detroit and move north. Conlan inherited that longing; he reveled in his boyhood of treeforts, baseball, and Sloppy Joes, even as it was unfolding. He revels in it still, with graceful language and long thoughts, with good dogs, good horses, and even better homemade wine. — Mardi Link, author of The Drummond Girls and Bootstrapper
Scott Couturier, THE CURSE OF ROC THALIAN: Following the terrors and travails of their all-too-recent adventures, the young mage Kelrob Kael-Pellin returns to his ancestral home in the Rolling Lands accompanied by Jacobson, a guildless and world-wearied sellsword. There, they are unexpectedly plunged into familial intrigue: Kelrob, having fallen ill on the road, is forcibly separated from Jacobson by his guilt-maddened father, Amon Kael-Pellin. As the mage struggles to recover from his deathly illness, the clan Kael-Pellin goes to war with itself, plunging the future of the family’s noble lineage in doubt. This the third volume in the The Magistricide series.
Evelyn Harper, ESSENCE: “Why are you wearing my wife’s perfume?” Laura Baker’s rescuer demanded, after hoisting her out of the water. Laura, a typical stay-at- home mom, is jolted out of her complacent world when she discovers that her best friend, Joan Wilberson, is having an affair with her husband. Banished from Laura’s life, Joan is an easy target for the escaped serial killer, George Knox, but when George’s murderous plan is interrupted, the quiet town is thrown into turmoil.
Broken hearted from losing both her husband and her friend, Laura is driven back to
her passion of painting and into the path of Josh Lang, a recently widowed author,
battling his own ghosts. It isn’t until the alluring, Bob Miller, catches Laura’s eye that she thinks her life is back on track. With no recent sightings of the dangerous convict, the small town is lulled back to sleep, but unknown to Laura and the rest of the town, something much more sinister is afoot.
