Bertrand Court

Bertrand Court is a captivating novel told in story form, intertwining seventeen luminous narratives about the secrets of a cast of politicos, filmmakers, and housewives, all tied to a suburban Washington, DC, cul-de-sac. Linked through bloodlines and grocery lines, they respond to life's bruises by grabbing power, sex, or the family silver. As they atone and forgive, they unmask the love and truth that hop white picket fences.

Michelle Brafman is the author of the novel Washing the Dead. Her short fiction and essays have appeared in Slate, Tablet, the Washington Post, Lilith, the the minnesota review, and elsewhere. She teaches fiction writing at the Johns Hopkins University MA in Writing Program and lives with her family in Glen Echo, Maryland.

Dark Angel (Lassiter/Martinez Case Files Book 2)

“Relentless from start to finish. Badal just gets better and better.”
—David Morrell, New York Times Bestselling Author of “Murder As a Fine Art”

In “Dark Angel,” the second in the Lassiter/Martinez Case Files series, Detectives Barbara Lassiter and Susan Martinez pick up where they left off in “Borderline.” Assigned to a murder case, they discover that their suspect is much more than a one-off killer. In fact, the murderer appears to be a vigilante hell-bent on taking revenge against career criminals who the criminal justice system has failed to punish.
But Lassiter and Martinez are soon caught up in the middle of an FBI investigation of a monstrous home invasion gang that has murdered dozens of innocent victims across the United States. When they discover a link between their vigilante killer and the home invasion crew, they come into conflict with powerful men in the FBI who are motivated more by career self-preservation than by bringing justice to innocent victims.
Award-Winning and best-selling author Joseph Badal presents another intricate, tension-filled mystery that puts readers on the edge of their seats from the first page to the last, and will have them demanding more Lassiter/Martinez stories.

“Great characters, action and plotting. ‘Dark Angel’ is a real winner!”
—Paul Kemprecos, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of “The Minoan Cipher”

Low-Fat Snacks: Easy Rich and Savory Snack Recipes for any Occasion (Leanne’s Quick and Easy Kitchen)

About Low-Fat Snacks

Seeing the title of this book can be a relief to some and an annoyance to others. For one group of people, finding snacks that are low in fat while not compromising on taste is an extremely difficult task. For another group, it can be an annoying attack on all those snacks that we’ve come to love over the years. Although this book may be targeted to that first group of people, I’m hoping that after seeing the delicious looking snack on the cover, I might be able to swing a couple of people from that second group over.

Snacking is a regular part of almost everyone’s day already and many people often snack more than once per day. The fact that snacking is such an important part of almost everyone’s daily routine means that what may initially seem like a handful or a very small serving of a particular snack can turn into a pretty significant boost or anchor on your health.

Eating low fat snacks instead of indulging in a baked good like a Krispy Kreme doughnut or some fried food from In-N-Out Burger will significantly reduce the risk of getting heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States. Instead of giving into the craving of a highly processed or fatty snack, try a recipe from Low-Fat Snacks and see how easy it can be to enjoy a guilt free treat.

We also offer some information for people on the Paleo diet, the Gluten-Free diet, as well as those who are Vegetarian or Vegan.

Some snacks you will find in this book include:

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread
  • Pizza Rolls
  • Quinoa Bites
  • Homemade Bits and Bites
  • Tofu Pudding
  • Cheesy Crackers
  • Apple Pie Popcorn Balls
  • Peanut Butter Banana Bites
  • Sweet Potato Latkes
  • Chocolate Chip Blondies
  • Espresso Meringues
  • Mint Chocolate Chip Meringues
  • Goat Cheese Bruschetta

The Unexpected Gift of Joseph Bridgeman: A Time Travel Adventure (The Downstream Diaries Book 1)

How far would you go for someone you love?

In 1992 Amy Bridgeman disappeared. Her brother is going back to discover the truth…

Joseph Bridgeman – a reclusive insomniac with a weakness for ‘The Beatles’ on vinyl – accidentally discovers he can time travel. With the help of Vinny, a local record shop owner, an old school friend and Alexia Finch (his hypo-time-travel guru) Joe sets out to change the course of his life. He needs to get back to 1992, the year his world fell apart, the year his sister, went missing. The only problem (apart from his clothes disappearing) is that the further back he goes the less time he gets to stay there. Can Joe master his new-found gift before time catches up with him?
