Mothers of Intention by Joanne Bamberger: “Describing today’s complex political scene with humor, intelligence and humility and explaining what it means to be a mother within it, Mothers of Intention provides a perspective that often eludes works of social commentary authored by a single individual.” (November 2012)

Dogging Steinbeck by Bill Steigerwald: “Steigerwald took John Steinbeck’s classic Travels With Charley and used it as a map for his own cross-country road trip in search of America. Then he proved Steinbeck’s iconic nonfiction book was a 50-year-old literary fraud. A true story about the triumph of truth.” (November 2012)

Love in Provence by William Auch: “When John Martin is forced to sell his tech company, he decides to take a six month vacation to the south of France. When he meets Madame Garcin, her daughter Sophie, and her granddaughter Isabelle, his life is changed forever. What began as a long vacation becomes a journey of self discovery marked by love, loss, and tragedy.  He is molded by this family of three generations of women, tempered by tragedy themselves, in ways that he could never have imagined.” (December 2012)

SaltWater by Lane Ashfeldt: “A collection of a dozen short stories inspired by the sea. The title story, ‘SaltWater,’ occurs on one summer’s day in 1940. Three West Cork men are sailing across the Irish Sea to bring a cargo of clay from Cornwall to Arklow, when they find their ship under attack by German war planes.” (January 2013)
