IDABEL ALLEN  “ROOTED:  It all comes from the root… and Grover McQuiston was the root of it all. Working his lifetime to bury a shameful past, Grover McQuiston rules the rural town of Moonsock, Tennessee and his family with an iron fist. Or he did, until his granddaughter scandalizes the small town with her “queer” behavior. Before Grover can force Sarah Jane to marry, strung-out punk rocker Slade Mortimer crash lands in Moonsock, claiming to be Grover’s long-lost grandson. When Slade’s presence threatens to reveal the devastating secret Grover will do anything to protect, it seems things couldn’t get any worse. Then Grover’s wife dies and in those flat delta fields, Grover learns nothing, absolutely nothing stays buried forever. Sweeping from the grime of the 1970s New York punk rock scene to the truck-scarred roads of the rural South, Rooted is an evocative, wry and beautifully-written historical fiction novel that captures the grit of Southern storytelling at its finest.

SHANNA BOSARGE “DEVIAN“: Shanna Bosarge’s breakout novel introduces Sterling Rin’Ovana — a complex, beautiful, and dangerous woman who forges toward a powerful future despite her unknown past.  Resentful of the silver eyes inherited from a mother she never knew, Sterling must learn to put aside the wayward glances and the whispered insults of those who see her as a monster. Silver eyes that also betray her as a Devian, and the hunted quarry of the Severon.  Born in the midst of a battle between her Veillen father and graekull demons and the blood of her dying mother, Sterling is secreted away by Hemi — a trusted family servant. She grows in peace and safety until the Severon find her, years later. As they destroy the people and the places she grew to love, Sterling battles their constant push to capture her, as well as her own regret over the trail of destruction that follows her escape.   No amount of Hemi’s training could prepare Sterling for the relentless pursuit of the Severon. As she flees, Hemi’s dying words ring in her ears — urging her to find shelter in the land of Kai’Vari, the place of her birth. While she hopes to find a place to finally call home, she returns to the millennia old battle between man and demon, as well as fear and mistrust from those who should instead protect her.  She also finds — as her Devian powers emerge — that she may either be the key to ending the ancient battle, or the catalyst to the world’s destruction.

LINDSEY BRACKETT  “STILL WATERS“:  Cora Anne Halloway has a history degree and a plan: avoid her own past—despite being wait-listed for graduate school.

At Still Waters her grandfather died, her parents’ marriage disintegrated, and as a child, she caused a tragic drowning. But lingering among the oak canopies and gentle tides, this place also tempts her with forgiveness—especially since Nan hired Tennessee Watson to oversee cottage repairs. A local contractor, but dedicated to the island’s preservation from development, Tennessee offers her friendship and more, if she can move beyond her guilt. When a family reunion reveals Nan’s failing health, Cora Anne discovers how far Tennessee will go to protect her—and Edisto—from more desolation. Will Cora Anne choose between a life driven by guilt, or one washed clean by the tides of grace?

J. D. JORDAN “CALAMITY: BEING AN ACCOUNT OF CALAMITY JANE AND HER GUNSLINGING GREEN MAN”:  I’m sure you’ve heard of Calamity Jane, but this is not a novel about Calamity Jane. At least not the Jane you may have read about. Calamity Jane is part of the legends of the Wild West, but long before she scouted with Custer or “Wild Bill” Hickok, she was a fifteen-year-old girl with a fiery temper. Violence and tragedy turn young Jane’s world upside down and soon she finds herself riding with an alien gunslinger—the Green Man—through a landscape of revenge and betrayal.  Along the way, she learns how to shoot a six-gun and how to stand on her own, even when surrounded by Lakota warriors, and be respected. From space ships to guns that can shoot the wings off a butterfly a mile away, young Jane realizes that the universe is far bigger than the Wild West and that she can trust no one in it to save her but herself.  When the villainous Grays meddling in the wars between the Indians and the government stand in the way of the Green Man making his way home, Jane finds her desire for revenge may be less than her loyalty for the longrider. And in that realization, she becomes the hero the Wild West has long remembered.  So, forget what you know of how the West was won. Forget the Indian Wars and Custer’s Last Stand. Instead, learn the truth of what happened when a young girl met a longrider she called the Green Man . . .

DANNY PELFREY  “LIFE IN ADAIRSVILLE“:  What fun it is to meet the sometimes fascinating, sometimes famous, sometimes common, sometimes slightly off center characters of a small town. The words and actions of the unique people as well as the events revealed in these pages may produce unbelief, laughter, amazement, and perhaps even a bit of pain at times, but never boredom. A town, its people and its events should not be forgotten. Our children and grandchildren along with their children should have at least some knowledge of our town’s past. They need to know of the events with broad implications as well as those that might be considered insignificant because they all blend together to make a town what it has become. One with no knowledge of Adairsville before exposure to this book or one who has lived in the little North Georgia town for years, will likely come away from these pages with a new found appreciation of the little Norman Rockwell town called “Adairsville.” Danny Pelfrey is the Minister of First Christian Church in Adairsville, Georgia.  He is the author of One-Way Choices in a Wrong-Way World and the co-author with his wife, Wanda, of an inspirational mystery novel entitled, Out of the Depths. For several years he wrote a local newspaper column about growing up in Adairsville. While Pelfrey compiled and edited Life in Adairsville, he is in order of text contribution the lesser of the three writers. The other two contributors are Alice Butler Howard (1894-1991) and Dan Bowdoin (1923-2009), both talented people with a vast knowledge of their hometown who were greatly admired by Pelfrey and the people of Adairsville, Georgia.

She will be an advocate for the beauty. . .

She will find the soldier. . .

She will foil a dictator. . .
