"Alone and lost again, I am, and once on shore surrounded by an alien sea. But on this land I beg, please, for reasons of which I am not certain, but allow the dead to seem dead and leave the living alone, please. A wild and bitter wind began to blow."

Barbara J. Dzikowski earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in philosophy and counseling, respectively, from Indiana University. These areas of study fueled her desire to create fiction that examines the human ... Read full author bio >
"In her first novel, Dzikowski has created a world complete enough to transport the reader back in time and a spunky protagonist whose emotional journey breaks the heart. Dzikowski's poignant, engrossing historical novel vividly parallels the last brutal days of segregation with the experiences of a small town girl coming of age in a racist society."

"Johnson’s debut is, at its core, a pastoral tale, a celebration of the rustic music and rich traditions of the hills and hollows of Virginia and West Virginia and their ability to offer relief and purpose in a harsh, lonesome world....a charming story about a bygone time where even magic seems possible."

"Zach Roper turned in his cop’s badge and now is trying to make it on the PGA Champions Tour, where the above-50 crowd continues to play golf at a high level. As he tries to make the cut, he finds himself embroiled in stuff that doesn’t typically attend a golf match: murder, embezzlement, sexual stalking, and international intrigue. To Burton’s credit, he not only makes these episodes (four separate stories, each about 60 pages) credible, but he has what appears to be a comfortable familiarity with police procedural work and golfing---its joys and sorrows and the elemental feel of the golfing landscape."

"From a global cast of winemakers come intimate, revealing comments about their art, which swing between invigorating to mellow … Mullen returns with these insights into why folks involved with the wine trade are in love with their work. The reasons are legion but all of a part: being outdoors and in tune with the seasons, entering into a partnership with the grapes, pride in the art of creation and an independence of spirit…Included are photographs heavily saturated with atmosphere, the kind you can almost smell before you see them ... A fine, maverick company of winemakers hold court about the thing they love best: communing with the world of the grape."
