The misdeeds of our ancestors are debts passed from generation to generation. They lurk, hidden in the shadows, waiting for the right time to collect. For the residents of Harper Pass—their debt is due.

When a young autistic girl goes missing from a small Appalachian community, the residents of Harper Pass descend into chaos. Brooks Raker and his friends stumble across the police investigation, and as they dig deeper into the mysterious events, the boys realize the fate of their missing classmate pales in comparison with the evil lurking in the shadows of the quiet little town.

With four boys who believe something sinister is at work, and an ambitious reporter breathing down his neck, Detective Holt of the Harper Pass Police Department must confront his doubts and follow the evidence. A chain of disappearances and suspicious deaths, leads Holt to the doorstep of the mysterious and reclusive Professor Wadlow who may know exactly what has come to collect in Harper Pass.

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller Torrey

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods by E. Fuller Torrey

Enter to win one of ten signed hardcover copies.

The book shows how the gods, and then formal religions, are virtually inevitable outcomes of the cognitive evolution of the human brain. It integrates recent findings on brain function with archeological, anthropological, child development, neuropsychology, and animal behavior studies to offer answers to questions such as the following:

• Where and when did the first gods appear, and why did they appear when they did?

• Why is it very unlikely that Neanderthals had gods?

• Why were most of the major religions organized in the brief “Axial Age” between 800 and 200 BCE?

A reviewer for the journal Religion (2018, 48: 500) said: “This is the book I have been waiting for…I have no doubt that it will set the standard in the field for at least a decade or more.”
Publishers Weekly added: “Presented in a manner that is accessible to nonscientists […] (an) insightful, thought-provoking work.”

Professor Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University wrote: “A unique scholarly approach to the subject that is sure to be influential and highly regarded.”

National History Book Services said: “Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods makes a very convincing argument. And the fact that the book avoids polarizing the topic with unnecessary anti-religious sentiment will hopefully see many more people read it.”

Now available in paperback.


The Second Womb by Anna-Karen Sorensen

The Second Womb by Anna-Karen Sorensen

The Second Womb is a nest, the sacred place that we all must have to complete our becoming. Whether it is the warmth and safety required after the first birth, or it is the space needed for withdrawal and reimagining, the second womb is the needed surrogate-a compassionate experience that works outside of Time as it helps in healing.
This is a book of poetry that has seven chapters. They deal with the feminine, our sacred spaces, the isolation of thought, large and small truths, life and its rhythms, and many other ruminations.


A Place Called Fear by Keith Houghton

A Place Called Fear by Keith Houghton

When cops break the rules, there’s only one detective you can trust to investigate.

Florida homicide detective Maggie Novak should be celebrating: it’s the start of a new year, and her boyfriend has just proposed. But all she can think about is the alarming news she received earlier that evening—her teammate Detective Clayton Young is missing.

With few leads, Maggie heads to the supermarket where Clay was last seen. To her horror, security footage reveals a devastating scene in the parking lot: her colleague has died in fearful circumstances. As the investigation begins, Homicide Squad is rocked by the news that Clay might not be the only intended target, and that any one of them could be next on the killer’s agenda.

Clay’s partner, Detective Andy Stucker, is refusing to answer calls, and Maggie suspects he has a part to play in their colleague’s death. Scanning through Clay’s phone, she finds a message to Stucker with the words “they know.”

Who are “they”? And what do they know? As more secrets come to light, Maggie has good reason to believe the killer is just getting started. She needs to uncover the truth fast. But is it already right in front of her eyes?

Holly Banks Full of Angst by Julie  Valerie

Holly Banks Full of Angst by Julie Valerie

A laugh-out-loud debut novel for anyone who’s tried to live the perfect life—and learned the hard way there’s no such thing.

Holly Banks could not have made a worse first impression on the seemingly perfect moms in her new affluent community, the Village of Primm. Turns out wearing pink piggy pajama bottoms while dropping off her kindergartener late to the first day of school wasn’t her best look.

Not to mention Holly’s worried her husband may be having an affair, she can’t get her daughter to stop sucking her thumb, her hard-won film degree is collecting dust, and to top it all off, the power-hungry PTA president clearly has it in for her…

To make matters even worse, Holly’s natural eye for drama lands her smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood mystery—right as her own crazy mother shows up in Primm “to help.” Through it all, Holly begins to realize her neighbors may be just as flawed as—and even wackier than—she is, leaving her to wonder: Is there such a thing as a perfect mom?
