"Talking with Kari was like talking with my perfect reader! She asked all the smart questions I was hoping to be asked, and then some I had never dreamed of. We dove straight into the heart of my novel, touched on every character and big idea, and before I could catch my breath, the time was up! And I would have gladly done it all over again."

A Memoir


Debra Monroe

debra monroe


Two-time National Book Award nominee Debra Monroe tells all in this portrait about life and love during the second wave of feminism. A frank, funny, and often insightful chronicle, "MY UNSENTIMENTAL EDUCATION" tells of a creative book-addicted personality who, despite a series of blue-collar relationships and the naïve notion she'd become a Midwestern housewife, wisely remained in school. Her memoir chronicles an evolution from a rural working class life in Spooner, Wisconsin to the professional class as an award-winning Author and noted English Professor at Texas State University.

A Charlie Parker Thriller


John Connolly

john connolly


After suffering a brush with death that left him mentally traumatized and slowly recovering from multiple bullet wounds, private detective Charlie Parker retreats to Boreas, a small coastal town in Maine. There, he befriends Ruth Winter and her young daughter Amanda. But the widow Ruth has a past that keeps her wary of Parker and fearful of the present and those who may be coming for her. Then, a body washes ashore. Could this be linked to a case that originated in a Nazi concentration camp during World War Two?

Defending Yourself Against Extreme

Narcissists In An All-About-Me-Age


Joseph Burgo, PhD

joseph burgo




It may surprise you to learn that, according to researchers, a startling 1 in 20 Americans are considered to be Extreme Narcissists. Not surprised? You may think that in this era of social-media saturation and "Selfies", the numbers should be higher! But, as Psychotherapist and Author Joseph Burgo explains, Narcissism is a disorder that ranges from those who are clinically diagnosed with "Narcissistic Personality Disorder" to those who have some narcissistic characteristics that can make your life miserable. The good news is this book explains how you can identify and protect yourself so you can peacefully co-exist with Extreme Narcissists without compromising your own mental health. You'll learn about several key types including the "Bully" ("I'm a winner, you're a loser."), the "Seductive" ("I want you to want me...until I'm tired of you."), the "Self-Righteous" ("I'm right, and you're wrong.") to the Narcissistic Parent ("You will be everything I always wanted to be.").
