The debut collection of raucous, dark, strange, satirical stories from the former Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer and New Yorker contributor, featuring a foreword by Stephen Colbert “Jen Spyra’s stories are shocking, silly, smart, and absurdly funny. Underline both those words, I don’t care how much it costs!”—Tina Fey A bride so desperate to get in shape for her wedding that she enrolls in a new kind of workout program that promises the moon but costs more than she bargained for. A snowman who, on the wish of a child, comes to life in a decidedly less savory way than in the childhood classic. And in the title story, a time-hopping 1940s starlet tries to claw her way to the top in modern-day Hollywood, despite being ridiculously unwoke. In this uproarious, addictive debut, Jen Spyra takes a culture that seems almost beyond parody and holds it up to a funhouse mirror, immersing the reader in a world of prehistoric influencers, woodland creatures plagued by millennial neuroses, and an all-out birthday bash determined to be the most lavish celebration of all time, by any means necessary. Welcome, brave soul, to the world of Jen Spyra.

Throughout her motherhood journey, Christine Keller experienced numerous tragedies that could have understandably triggered an abandoning of her faith. But that is not what happened. Quite the opposite in fact. Working through the tragedies fueled her faith and propelled her toward a deeply personal relationship with Jesus. Christine was reminded time and again that when God is in control there is no need to fear but all the reasons for faith. FAITH Not Fear is a tale of overcoming great fear and learning to walk in abiding faith and peace. Christine reveals the horrors of her plunges into the dark pits of terror, rage, and desperation, but she also describes mountaintops marked by joyful singing and dancing. The struggle is real but so is the hope. This is not a book about blind faith or quick fixes-it is a book about God's faithfulness. Written to reassure Christians living in this scary time, FAITH, Not Fear encourages reaching out to Jesus through both the good times and the hard times. Readers will laugh and cry as they see how God is truly working all things together for good, and they will learn that he is worthy of their faith and trust.

Discover four critically-acclaimed novels from award-winning author Tamara Ireland Stone, including the New York Times bestseller Every Last Word. In the New York Times bestselling Every Last Word, Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But she’s hiding a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off. It doesn't help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend a secret, right up there with Sam's weekly visits to her psychiatrist. But then Caroline introduces Sam to Poet's Corner, a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse. Slowly, she begins to feel more "normal" than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear. In Little Do We Know, lifelong best friends and next-door neighbors Hannah and Emory have never gone a single day without talking. But now it’s senior year and they haven't spoken in three months. Not since the fight, where they each said things they couldn't take back. Then one fateful night, Emory's boyfriend, Luke, almost dies, and Hannah is the one who finds him and saves his life. As Luke tries to make sense of his experience, he secretly turns to Hannah, who becomes his biggest confidante. And in Luke, Hannah finds someone she can finally talk to. But Emory just wants everything to go back to normal—the way it was before the accident. But when the horrifying reason behind Hannah and Emory's argument ultimately comes to light, all three of them will be forced work together to protect the one with the biggest secret of all in this deeply moving, unforgettable story about love, betrayal, and the power of friendship. In Time Between Us, Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet. She lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett's unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna's life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility. As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate—and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together. In the sequel to Time Between Us, Time After Time, Anna and Bennett have found a way to stay together against all odds. It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work…until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen. Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn’t want?

Publisher: Page Publishing Inc
The character of Jordan Grimes emerged over a period of ten years. He is a criminal, but we find that he is a troubled soul as well. His ideas of life and the world get him into far more trouble than he would like, but as you will see, Jordan likes trouble. The other characters in Living Large are much the same as you and me. They have their character flaws and their oddities, but they manage to maintain a lifestyle that suits them and yet somehow continuously places them in harm’s way. Since one character is a police officer, he is one of many attempting to lure Jordan Grimes into a trap to pay for his crimes. Yet as with criminals whose lives have many facets, Jordan creates trouble without trying and is very difficult to pin down. As readers, you will recognize that in this book as well as in life, the people you encounter are a select group, those that are in your circle of friends or part of your work associates. These people may remain in your life a short time or your entire life. This story exaggerates that a bit, but that makes it all the more intriguing. I believe you will find it difficult not to root for Jordan Grimes, criminal extraordinaire, not because he is bad, but because even with his flaws, you can’t help but like his desire to persevere despite the odds against him.

A page-turning memoir about a young woman's grueling, revelatory summers working alone in a remote lookout tower and her eyewitness account of the increasingly unpredictable nature of wildfire in the Canadian north. While growing up in Peace River, Alberta, Trina Moyles heard many stories of Lookout Observers--strange, eccentric types who spent five-month summers alone, climbing 100-foot high towers and watching for signs of fire in the surrounding boreal forest. How could you isolate yourself for that long? she wondered. "I could never do it," she told herself. Craving a deeper sense of purpose, she left northern Alberta to pursue a decade-long career in global humanitarian work. After three years in East Africa, and newly engaged, Trina returned to Peace River with a plan to sponsor her fiance, Akello's, immigration to Canada. Despite her fear of being alone in the woods, she applied for a seasonal lookout position and got the job. Thus begins Trina's first summer as one of a handful of lookouts scattered throughout Alberta, with only a farm dog, Holly--labeled "a domesticated wolf" by her former owners--to keep her company. While searching for smoke, Trina unravels under the pressure of a long-distance relationship--and a dawning awareness of the environmental crisis that climate change is producing in the boreal. Through megafires, lightning storms, and stunning encounters with wildlife, she learns to survive at the fire tower by forging deep connections with nature and with an extraordinary community of people dedicated to wildfire detection and combat. In isolation, she discovers a kind of self-awareness--and freedom--that only solitude can deliver. Lookout is a riveting story of loss, transformation, and belonging to oneself, layered with an eyewitness account of the destructive and regenerative power of wildfire in our northern forests.

Miles Davis was not only a musical genius, but also an enigma, and nowhere else was he so compelling, exasperating, and entertaining as he was in his interviews, which vary from polite to outrageous, from straight-ahead to contrarian. Miles on Miles collects thirty of the most vital. Even his autobiography lacks the immediacy of the dialogues collected here. Many were conducted by leading journalists like Leonard Feather, Stephen Davis, Ben Sidran, Mike Zwerin, and Nat Hentoff. Other have never before seen print and are newly transcribed from radio and television shows. Until now, no book has brought back to life Miles's inimitable voice—contemplative, defiant, elegant, uncompromising, and humorous. Miles on Miles will long remain the definitive source for anyone wanting to really encounter the legend in print.

Roger Fraser, the ever optimistic but perpetually put upon investment banking stock analyst-trouble shooter and occasional rugby player has more work and domestic issues to challenge his sensibilities. He skilfully manoeuvres from one demanding situation to the next, barely managing to extinguish the callous flames of fate seeming to constantly blight his endeavours and bite at his flesh. During his excursions into shocking social scandals and battling with egotistical megalomaniacs, he endlessly verges on disaster, but somehow always manages to survive. Roger pokes irreverent fun at the new Establishment, single-handedly takes on female dragons, prevails against rampaging supermarket shoppers and trades wisecracks with a Brummy vicar, but invariably finds himself tethered to the doghouse, singing the blues.
