As Chicago is dragged even deeper into darkness, the Vigilante must push through the fear. Only one man can help her save innocent souls, and salvation can only be found deep underground.
Sloane Friday is fearless. Once a cop, she now works with a few select men guarding her new home as the Vigilante. Despite their best efforts, the deadly drug Phantom is spreading, claiming more deaths each time the night falls. The mission calls to Sloane, triggering a piece of her past she believed she’d put to rest.
A former Marine and passionate about urban exploration, Professor Luke Radcliffe encounters the Vigilante one night and when the Vigilante approaches him for help, he’s dragged back into a world of violence he thought he’d left behind. He quickly realizes there’s much more at stake than dealing with criminals, and the team of unique individuals fighting in the shadows gains his admiration. In particular, Sloane, the pink-haired woman with a wild streak that calls to him.
Love blossoms in unexpected places, and deep underground, Luke, Sloane, and the rest of the Vigilantes put their own lives on the line and come together in a common goal—to save the people of Chicago before more lives are lost.
Will their love survive the darkness and addiction, or will the violence surrounding them smother any possibility of a future?

My passion and a common theme in my writing is my Icelandic heritage. I started with children’s books and folklore, and enjoy adding a little taste of Iceland in my contemporary novels. I spent thirty years in the telecommunications industry, which was rewarding and challenging, and had a thread of writing. When my father passed away in 2015, I reassessed my priorities, opted for early retirement, and indulged my passion for writing. In the past five years, I have written several children’s folklore books, a cookbook, a novel, and a new non-fiction motivational book, all honoring my Icelandic heritage. I am a snowbird, living in South Dakota during the summer and Arizona during the winter, migrating with my husband, our four horses and three dogs. His passion for team roping and my love of rodeo has carried over into my novels, in what I hope is an interesting and unique experience for readers.

The Last Playlist: A Sonic Epitaph by P.A. Kane
Page Count – 212 pages
Genre – Memoir/Essay/Music
Cover Designer- Donna Kane
When my mom passed, I found I didn’t know her beyond a typical child/parent relationship. I didn’t want that for my own children and since we always bonded over music, I thought to write some stories about my life linked to songs I found meaningful. In addition to telling stories about my life, I also relate some of the formative experiences that shaped me, as well as providing lighthearted instructions for my funeral party, at which there is to be no white wine/white claw and the music is the eighteen songs profiled in The Last Playlist.

Growing up in a three bed/one bath house with nine siblings in Buffalo, New York it was a just the facts, assembly-line type of childhood. However, one day during my tumultuous teen years in the late seventies that all changed when my exhausted mom uncharacteristically asked several probing questions about how I was doing, what I wanted of life and how I was going to get there . . . totally confounding me. She was supposed to dish out commands and make declarative statements—take out the trash, don’t come home unless you’re bleeding, every time you masturbate it’s a hundred-years in purgatory. She wasn’t supposed ask articulate, inward looking questions. Self-examination and contemplation, was light years beyond my transactional existence.

Eventually, though, due to a certain amount of aimlessness and failure I did come to consider my mom’s questions and many more which led me to writing. Presently, I am the author of two novels Written In The Stars: The Book Of Molly (2016) and Leaving Jackson Wolf (2018) and now a book of essays, The Last Playlist: A Sonic Epitaph.

Presently I live in West Seneca, New York with my wife and my son, who is taking his good ole time finishing his bachelor’s degree. I have a State University of New York background in English and I love trade paperbacks, quiet black mornings and The Ramones.

Gianna
There’s a common expression I remind myself of every day: that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.
People think I live an idyllic life with my perfect husband, but they don’t know what lies beneath the façade.
Like the delicate petals of the daisies he loved to give, I was easily crushed—broken, just as he wanted me to be.
I’ve learned to accept what is, but I won’t let it destroy me.
Instead, I do the only thing I can to survive—I run.
Derek
I knew she had a story. I knew it most likely contained violence, but never did I imagine the horrors she’d been though.
I’d waited so long and she’d experienced so much. She was perfectly imperfect, her scars more than skin deep.
It was near impossible to separate truths from lies, but I knew her secret. Yet, I couldn’t help wanting to get closer. She was strong, and there was beauty in strength.
I was drawn to it—drawn to her.
I wanted to erase her horrors and give her something new to dream about.

Genre – YA contemporary, Mental health/issues book
16-year-old Wes McCoy is not the favorite child. He does not have a wrestling scholarship to Stanford nor does he live up to the family legacy as an athlete, unlike his brother, Jason. But when Jason dies in a car accident on the way to the state high school wrestling championship, Wes turns to food to give him the control over his life he didn’t have before, and the kind of success he never tasted.
Told through alternating past and present chapters revolving around Jason’s death, Wes must come to terms with more than Jason’s death. There’s Caila, a defiant girl who introduces him to the painful pleasure of starving. And there’s Collin, Wes’s best friend who speaks in Shakespearean insults and with whom his relationship is irreparably damaged. But most of all, Wes must take back control from his eating disorder as he learns more about himself and the mystery surrounding Jason’s accident, before he loses his life and those closest to him.

Lies That Bind (Logan McKenna Series Book 6) by Valerie Davisson

~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ BOOK SPOTLIGHT SHOWCASE ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~
Lies That Bind (Logan McKenna Series Book 6) by Valerie Davisson
Page Count – 227 pages
Genre – Historical Mystery
A violent murder during the rumrunning days of Prohibition set two families on very different paths. In 2020, when a Collins is killed and an Ellis is accused, Logan has to dig through the tangle of secrets and lies binding the two families together to uncover the truth before the killer takes another life. . .
Things are changing for Logan McKenna. She’s buying a fixer-upper with Ben on the Oregon coast and is about to meet her half-sister, Olivia, who, until last year, she didn’t know existed. Both acts require huge leaps of faith, something Logan is often short on. But the remodel is going smoothly and Logan begins to relax and even look forward to the upcoming visit with Olivia.
Before Logan gets the chance to meet her new sibling, a young woman, Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Collins, is found dead—drowned in the pool of The Collins, her family’s landmark Depoe Bay hotel.
Was this a horrible accident, or murder? Emerging details are murky. Logan and Olivia soon find themselves inexorably drawn into what is starting to look like a homicide investigation. With no hard evidence, the police are focusing solely on Wade Ellis, Charlie’s fiance, who had means and opportunity, and according to at least one person, plenty of motive and absolutely no alibi.
In Lies That Bind, Davisson explores themes of mental illness, jealousy, shame, and guilt as well as the redeeming power of love, trust and community. What makes a murderer? Are killers born or bred? One thing’s for certain, secrets never stay that way and only love can heal.
If you enjoy Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon, J. A. Jance’s Joanna Brady or Ali Reynolds, Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone, William Kent Kreuger’s Cork O’Connor, or Elly Griffith’s Ruth Galloway, you’ll love Davisson’s Logan McKenna!

Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal romance author who has always been fascinated with things that go bump in the night. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her love of a good happily-ever-after, and becoming a paranormal romance author seems like the only logical career choice.

Before she decided to turn her love of the written word into a career, Carrie spent the first part of her professional life as a high school journalism and yearbook teacher. She loves good chocolate and bad puns, and in her free time, she likes to read, drink wine, and travel with her family.
