A Messy Life

by John Schwartz

After the death of his wife Emily, Steven decides to honor her by walking from their Oregon home to Jerusalem where she was born. His life was messy and so is his walk.

It is closer to an anthology in many ways, yet the result creates a novel.Steven trudges through an Indian Reservation where spiritual mushrooms create a visit with Lewis and Clark. At one point he enters a vaginal sperm race to trace life’s source of DNA. His memory is swamped with life lessons learned around the world. Having lived and worked in Asia for several decades his memory is flooded with Thai massages and Chairman Mao’s sa...

Dear Mom, I love you very much. Love, Joe

by Joe Brian

When I got word that my mother had died, my life changed forever. I immediately went upstairs to my room and slammed the door shut. I opened up the photo album she gave me before she passed and stared at the pictures of my mom throughout the years. With tears pouring down my hot face, I just gazed at the pictures; images of her as a young woman, images of her older.Thoughts raced through my mind like, “Here she is at 16. She had no clue that she would get cancer several years later and have a horrible death.” And, “Here she is holding me when I was a baby. She had no clue what was in store for her 26 years later.”Suddenly, I screamed and threw the book across the room. “This isn’t fair!” I bellowed. I looked up at the ceiling and screamed at God. “What kind of a sick joke i...

My Good Lady

by Gary Mill

'My Good Lady' is the fifth novel from Gary Mill, an Amazon Kindle chart-topping writer. It is the dramatised account of a true story.
It is 1914. The staid, morally righteous and male-dominated Victorian era has given way to a potentially more liberal Edwardian period. However, women remain second-class citizens and still do not have the vote. Britain’s menfolk have gone to war but the female population must remain behind and keep the home fires burning. After all, the fairer sex don't fight; that is not their role in life. But one iron-willed female doctor from Edinburgh has a very different idea. An idea borne out of political struggle and a steely determination to succeed. Her name is Dr Elsie Maud Inglis.
A founder member of the Suffragist movement in Scotland, Elsie sti...

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.
