The Normals by Alyx Mesun: “Trent Bosworth is a popular kid in a small town who is surrounded by superficial acquaintances while valiantly trying to survive the fallout of a rapidly deteriorating family structure. Trent is angry and aimless, but thanks to his carelessness, he finds himself in a bizarre situation.” (August 2012)

Road of Happiness: Finding Joy in Life’s Journey by Jill R. Seely: “A common goal in life is to be happy… to find and create happiness that can develop into joy. This insightful book gives a fun perspective on happiness, and how to enjoy life now and in the future. The author’s real life examples, insights, and strategies make it easy for anyone to increase his or her happiness and understanding of what it means to be happy.” (August 2012)

Lunatopics by Ivan Radev: “It will be a strange journey. At times it will be naively romantic, but it will also be violently critical of society, its norms, its religions, but also hypercritical of myself. This collection of essayistic short stories will examine the lunacy in all of us, but it will never condemn it. No – it will embrace it – all of it – its colorful hyper romanticism and its dark cynical urges.” (August 2012)
