Rachel Robinson knew that it was normal for couples to become distant over time. Her husband, Brad spent more time at work and at the local pub than with Rachel and their daughter. When their daughter goes off to college, Rachel is faced with an empty nest that is painful. Narcissistic Brad had been waiting for his “responsibility” to end so that he could finally ask Rachel for a divorce. She is blindsided by his betrayal and turns to her new friend, Sadie for support. As the women unveil secrets from their past, it triggers a chain of events that will change their lives forever. With nothing else to lose, Rachel sets sail on an unforgettable journey where she finds that true love has been waiting for her all along.

Coming About will speak to any heart that’s ever had a change of course. Sometimes the path we’re on is not where we are destined to be. It takes a twist of fate and a leap of faith for redirection. Never give up hope, just “come about”.

History of Woman Suffrage is a window into the suffragette movement, a front-row seat to the fight for women’s rights. This historic work draws a dramatic picture of  the massive effort and struggle that took place in America from 1848 to 1861 through letters and documents, as well as uncensored thoughts and ideas from women during this evolving time, all rich with lively wit. The writing is vivid and compelling, with rousing speeches defending the legitimacy of the request for suffrage and strong, witty defense against those too comfortable in the status quo. Documented in great detail through primary sources, notes, letters, newspapers, and journals, this first volume spans 40 years of key insight into the suffrage movement. 

Originally compiled and edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Suzy B. Anthony, and Matilda Joselyn Gage, History of Woman Suffrage, Volume 1 starts from the very beginning. Now available as an audiobook for the first time, History of Woman Suffrage is even more poignant today. As the effort for true women’s equality continues for us, we can listen to our foresisters make history in the face of what they overcame.

Eidolon Avenue: Where the secretly guilty go to die.

One building. Five floors. Five doors per floor. Twenty-five nightmares feeding the hunger lurking between the bricks and waiting beneath the boards.

The sequel to Eidolon Avenue: The First Feast – “a great read…powerful and jarring” (Cemetery Dance) – returns to the voracious Eidolon as it savors The Second Feast.

A narcoleptic man in apartment 2A battles a vengeful past determined to rob him of everything as he runs from the barbaric disaster of a delusional love. A woman in 2B, reinventing herself to please a callous boyfriend, discovers the horrors that wait in the shadows of her self-renovation. The man in 2C, a teacher at the nearby Catholic girl’s school, collapses beneath the brutal consequences of his lecherous desires. An older woman in 2D, after decades dedicated to the church, is cornered at last by the grisly carnage beating at the hollow center of her faith. And a college student in 2E, hungry to escape an ignored life of invisible anonymity, finds herself captured between the pages of a ravenous book.

All thrown into their own private hell as every cruel choice, every drop of spilled blood, every silent, complicit moment of cowardice is remembered, resurrected, and relived to feed the ancient evil that lives on Eidolon Avenue.

Proudly represented by Crystal Lake Publishing – Tales from the Darkest Depths.

Interview with the author:

What makes this horror short story collection so special?

Winn: There’s something incredibly creepy about the thought of a building calling souls home. Not people who know each other or have anything in common, save their address and living on the same floor. But people who have tortured pasts and deep wounding. Who have stumbled away from cataclysmic mistakes in an attempt to escape consequence. And now, here, on Eidolon Avenue, they’re going to take a breath, rest, perhaps build a new life. But it’d been waiting for them, the building. Knowing their stories, familiar with their ghosts, aware of their failings and sins. As a writer, there’s something fantastically freeing about that premise. The possibilities are endless. What they did and how they’re going to suffer, really, you can just do so much with that.

Tell us more about your lead characters.

Winn: Well, I have five lead characters each with their own tale to tell. And they’re as different from each other as night and day. What they do have in common, though is an awareness of the immense weight of their guilt and a foreknowing, if you will, that their journey has come to a close. So even if the end is shocking and swift and they’d hoped to escape just one more time, they somehow get that it was time.

Why should listeners give this series a try?

Winn: The great thing about Eidolon Avenue is, within one book, the listener has five new stories to discover. New characters, new situations, new sins and mistakes, new consequences all wrapped up within a complete narrative with the only thing linking these five disparate souls together being the building they live in and the floor they live on. So, for a writer, the creativity I get to tap into to make the stories as different and memorable as possible is a heck of a lot of fun. You just never know how lives are going to crumble and collapse as you move from neighbor to neighbor.

The Sword of Damocles by Anna Katharine Green.

Narrated by Kristina Rothe.

The Sword of Damocles is unusual in the output of Anna Katharine Green, being a melodramatic romance rather than a straight crime novel. Although her best-known detective, Ebenezer Gryce, does put in an appearance, his role is almost parenthetical.   

A young man, Bertram Mandeville, confesses to his wealthy uncle Edward Sylvester his desire to abandon a career as a pianist in order to win the heart of a young woman whose father dislikes musicians. This leads Sylvester to review his own life during which he married for money rather than love. Paula, a poor but virtuous young woman, comes to stay with Sylvester and his wife and arouses long-dormant romantic feelings in him.

However, Edward Sylvester has a dark secret that will ruin his life if it comes to light.
