Featured Genre: Horror

CURE by Kali Metis

This story blends historical fiction, dark fiction/horror, magical realism in new and inventive ways. Thoroughly researched, it combines the history of the Birke, the most famous female Viking warrior, with the mythos of Lycanthropes (shapeshifters), with America’s modern day inner city to create a new world and modern legends, enriching the shapeshifting legendary tales.

CURE by Kali Metis is a howling romp that seamlessly blends various voices, genres, and time periods without losing its effortless style. An amalgam of myth, historical fiction, romance, folklore, and horror, Metis cooks delicious conflict into every page as her main character, Luna Auber, bakes cupcakes by day but shifts into something slightly more sinister by night. Fans will surely hope this is the initial book of a series because CURE is worth reading by moonlight and sinking one’s teeth into.” –Suzanne Samples, author of Frontal Matter and Stargazing in Solitude

All Daniel Corriente wants is to escape his past and be “normal,” but as he enters his senior year in college, he must face the past traumas that have made him who he is. During his journey, Dani will find himself at the intersections of seemingly conflicting identities—Mexican/Chicano/Anglo, thug/intellectual, straight/queer, loner/friend. Along the way, Dani will begin to weave toward clarity with the help of a therapist, feuding mentors, an elitist boss, a persistent drug addict, a former love, and an old woman obsessed with his character flaws and the pizzas with extra green peppers. If he has any hope of finding himself, Dani must ultimately answer the question posed by one of his customers—a question that haunts him at every turn:

SHOCKING PINK by Stuart Canterbury

In a hilarious blow by blow account of what goes on behind the scenes of X-rated movie production, Shocking Pink provides a riveting glimpse of the colorful characters and outrageous situations in a veiled and fascinating world where sex, money, entertainment and celebrity connect in a billion-dollar global industry.

Adult movie producer, Travis Lazar, is a man who will always do the right thing – when he has exhausted all other possibilities. Tiffany West, the hottest porn star in Los Angeles, is hell for him to handle.

When Travis is nominated at the bombastic annual awards in Las Vegas, the ceremony is full of unexpected twists, which propel Travis and Tiffany on a collision course.

In this romp through the day-to-day life of a porn producer, the savvy dealmaker has to deal with volatile Middle Eastern executives, mutiny by members of the crew, starstruck starlets, rival producers, angry moguls, the mob, the Vice Squad, the FBI, two court cases (one civil, one criminal) as well as the Diva herself and, along the way, engineer the takeover of the biggest studio in the industry.

Just when you thought everything had been stripped bare, Shocking Pink is a lively page-turner that reveals more than you could possibly imagine.
