Available: November 2019
Abigail Winchester is having one hell of a day. Crashing her car into the church’s nativity, then losing both her best friend and her job are bad enough. But then the assisted living center calls: Abigail’s grandmother is being kicked out, and guess who’s listed as the next of kin?
Even though they haven’t spoken in over twenty-two years, Nana, the strong-willed matriarch of the Winchester clan, has plans for her wayward granddaughter. Trapped in a small Texas town, Abigail is forced to take a long, hard look at the life she’s been living since her parents died. The drinking, the recklessness, the anger …
But life in the Bible Belt isn’t all therapists, swear jars, and teetotalers. Bo LeBlanc, the county’s most eligible bachelor, has set his sights on the new girl in town, and he might just be exactly what Abigail is looking for—if she can survive gun-toting octogenarians, crazy stray cats, and DAR luncheons!
I finished writing A Southern Girl Re-Belles on September 20, 2018. There was a storm that night, and the next morning I was awakened to this. A double rainbow. As Nana says, “You just can’t make this stuff up.” That morning, as I looked into the sky, I knew that my dream had come true, and this book would be something special.

Milton Joseph Batson turns to poetry to more fully understand God’s Word and its possibilities for humankind. His poems and reflections chronicle his life story, describing inner thoughts about faith, human emotion, and the indescribable fulfilling joy of experiencing God’s miraculous love.
The author’s expressive words are grouped in sections that cover God’s beauty and bounty; God’s promises; God’s gifts; God’s wisdom, guidance, lessons learned; gratitude; and questions, searching and answers. Dates on each poem help chronicle Milton’s experiences, and increasing comprehension, which work hand-in-hand as someone grows in faith and spiritual exploration. He included sketches above a few of his poems, intended as pictorial puzzles paraphrasing portions of the poem.
Milton’s heartwarming poems chronicle his journey as he works to share God’s truths, his struggles along the way, and adventures with indescribable joy. His elegant words provide a truly enjoyable read for those who seek God’s wisdom and appreciate poetry’s ability to translate human feelings and emotions. But above all, Milton wants to help others experience God’s grace filled love and enlightenment in their own lives: “My most ardent hope is that as I travel down life’s numerous pathways, the positive lessons experienced and chronicled might provide some illumination in an otherwise darkening world.”
Milton Joseph Batson began writing poetry and stories at an early age. This is his second book of poetry. Growing up, he split his time between the small island community of Eastport, Maine, and its Huckleberry Finntype activities and his grandparents’ home on Campobello Island, Canada.

A no-holds-barred lampoon of today’s America—the corruption of the financial elites and the system that enables them, the ludicrous hype surrounding technology companies and their founders, and the blatant hypocrisy of…pretty much everyone.
Giles Goodenough is a Wall Street research analyst coasting through life on luck and privilege. In an open marriage to the luscious exstripper Cherry, he seems to have it made. But behind his air of nonchalance lurks a deep insecurity.
Peter Silver is the billionaire founder of hedge fund POS Capital, whose monuments to his ego hint at his sociopathic tendencies. Desperate to sate his greed, the latest target of his speculation is Zyxview, a company founded by Egon Crump, a neurotic and lecherous tech showman with a penchant for fur vests and narcotics.
When Peter hires Giles as an “expert” on Zyxview—and orders him to get to know Egon “better than anyone”—he sets in motion a train of events that takes the reader on a farcical and uncomfortable ride through the inner workings of our broken financial system.

The Eyes Have It
List Price: 14.99
I grew up in Troy, New York, went to public schools, and hoped to turn my love of English into a writing career. My guidance counselor and parents had other ideas. In those days, most girls became nurses or teachers. I chose nursing. I never made it through surgery without passing out. Great career planning, huh? After years in health care, I pursued my writing passion. I create stories from ordinary lives, about relationships, families, and other life connections. I love animals, and my novels usually include them. Recently, I’ve renewed my connection with my Armenian heritage, unburying the history of the Armenian church and its members near where I grew up for a planned historical fiction.
Married to Dennis for over half my lifetime, I’m fortunate to have found a man who’s a great friend and playmate. We live in South Glens Falls, New York.
A wartime affair reaps tragic consequences decades later for two young lovers.
Olivia is startled by her electric response to her first direct encounter with Ethan, a tall, slender athlete with the dreamiest eyes and smile. Her initial attraction strengthens as the months progress toward graduation. Josh, Liv’s dad, unexplainably objects to the relationship.
When Ethan joins Liv’s family for a day at the Saratoga Race Course at the end of July, tragedy strikes at the hands of terrorists. While Liv and Ethan huddle alone in an empty stable, her father is killed, her mother injured, and her younger brother traumatized. In the days and weeks that follow, during which Ethan distances himself from Liv and often disappears for stretches of time, Liv discovers an inner strength and maturity that allows her to cope with revelations about her family and its scandalous quarter-century-old connection with Ethan’s family. The FBI investigation of the attack leads to Ethan’s half brother, Jamail, and two other men. Ethan’s mother is certain Ethan knows where Jamail is hiding. Following Josh’s funeral, Ethan agrees to take his mother, Liv, and Liv’s mother and brother to confront him. Jamail greets them with an automatic rifle. Ethan is shot saving his mother and Liv.
Ethan survives with serious injuries and faces charges for aiding a terrorist. Following a few days of bonding with Samar and Ethan’s father, Brian, in the ICU, the couple inexplicably shuts Olivia out. When Ethan is moved out of ICU, Olivia visits him. He rejects her viciously and inexplicably.
Shattered and confused, Olivia descends into a black depression. One of her old school friends, Rachel, convinces Olivia to take a class at the local state college and meet new friends. At Panera, with her study group several months later, Olivia locks eyes with Ethan across the room. He surprises her by hobbling over to her table, flashing his heart-melting smile and behaving as if he hadn’t harshly discarded her the previous August. In their brief conversation, she learns he has dealt with a complicated recovery, including addiction to pain medications. He’s so warm, so like the Ethan she fell for over a year before, she entertains hopes that he will call her. He doesn’t.
A stronger Olivia learns to put one foot in front of the other and focus on the life she has, not the one she’d expected to have. Life and her heart must go on without Ethan.
And yet …
“Promise me this,” he had said, “that you’ll never doubt how much I love you.”
He could walk back into her life one day. In a restaurant. Around a corner. At her front door. Olivia knew their love was that strong.

Suzy Perry, a lovely, accomplished older woman, has married into a new family in Westchester County, NY, after being widowed not long before in Atlanta. Her new husband, Dean Perry, is besotted with her, but his son, Alex, and daughter-in-law Lisa are troubled by how little they know about her. Who is she? Little by little, clues and tidbits of information persuade Alex that he needs to know more. As the questions pile up, Alex, a journalist, elects to hire a private detective to probe Suzy’s past, without informing his father. Over time, it becomes clear that Suzy changed her name when she moved to Atlanta – and that she had been married for many years to a car dealer in Missouri who died suddenly shortly before she left.
Is all this innocent, or something more sinister? Once circumstantial, the evidence becomes more concrete – and then Suzy is on the run.
