She struggles to survive on the long brutal trek, while strange dreams disturb her sleep.

Lest Darkness Prevail (The Chikondra Trilogy Book 3)

Lest Darkness Previal: Dare to Live the Light by Sandra Valencia is now available for purchase

In the gripping finale of the award-winning Chikondra Trilogy, time dramatically alters the focus of Chikondra’s Minister Sirinoya and his Terran lifemate, Sandra. Challenges force the couple to blend the responsibilities of unification and family with their unique combination of skill and experience in statesmanship.

Meanwhile, history careens along a perilous path. Dedicated diplomats confront growing risks as they doggedly pursue peaceful initiatives. Warily monitoring events that threaten the worlds they serve, leaders conclude that the strategies of a shadowy enemy are working to undermine the stability of the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance. Confident that the elusive Zeteron Empire is on the verge of shifting to an open challenge, many Alliance leaders see disaster looming in the near future. Under the shadow of this threat, questions arise over the union’s will to resist an apparent march toward galactic war.

Dark times create doubt in the minds of even the most faithful of Chikondra’s spiritual guides. When an old fairy tale is recalled, they realize that bits and pieces of the unsettling present appear oddly similar to the ancient legend. Does coincidence play games with the enchanted story? Or does this fable ring bells of warning?

A Business Notion Put in Motion

A Business Notion Put in Motion: The Wit and Wisdom of Jim Whitacre is available for purchase at retailers worldwide! 

In the early 1970s, Jim Whitacre was an established senior CPA and he turned his attention toward helping young accountants entering the business world for the first time. The young recruits were sharp with accounting skills but totally green in the ways of business. Jim had an idea to write a poem about starting a business and the various challenges a young entrepreneur might encounter. That idea was the origin of this book.

“This book is brilliant and highly entertaining! I can see businesses giving this to their employees, and high school and college teachers having their students read and study this book as a great introduction to the business world. I also highly recommend this book to ordinary folks (like myself) who want to easily learn about how businesses are grown and be entertained at the same time.” -Amazon Reviewer

Find your copy at a major retailer or request it from your favorite bookstore!

Blue Baxter turns twelve in 1954 just as the school year ends, and she settles in for a long, lazy summer vacation.

But when backyard garden vegetables begin to mysteriously disappear in the night, Blue’s investigation leads to the discovery of three “illegal” migrant worker kids hiding in a tool shed. They’re on the run from border patrol agents and fearful of taking help from strangers who might turn them in.

Determined to do what’s right, Blue enlists the help of her GramZees, the one person Blue trusts to speak her mind, even when it means facing down hate and prejudice.

But doing the right thing means hard choices are ahead for Blue and her family. Going against the law, their neighbors, and white supremacists puts everyone in jeopardy as they race against time to find the migrant children’s grandmother in hopes of giving them a haven from deportation.

As tensions rise in town, border patrol agents and white supremacist vigilantes close in. Blue finds herself coming of age in the midst of a historic moment, caught between what is right and what is safe.

Dumpster Doll: The Early Years — Worldwide Release

We’re pleased to announce that Dumpster Doll: The Early Years by Michelle Mays and Michelle Moone is now available at retailers worldwide.

Find a copy at any major retailer as a paperback, hardback, or e-book, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore!

Michelle Mays was born into an abusive family in the Midwest. As she and her siblings cling to survival, the balance of family ties is weighed against alcoholism, drug abuse, abandonment, and despair. Hope dawns in the form of foster care, only to be deferred by multiple placements and a system not equipped to support the children it’s meant to protect.

Through powerful vignettes of a life disjointed, Mays’s story is a journey of hope that is echoed in the experiences of thousands of children in the court and foster care systems today.

“Dumpster Doll gives you a chance to open your eyes and glimpse what children in the system go through and how they got there. You may be uncomfortable, and I hope that you are. It is my sincere hope that Dumpster Doll provokes you to do something in your own community to help children.”

            –Crystal Morgan, founder of Fostering Love

Dumpster Doll is brave not because it is unique, but because it unflinchingly shines a light on family turmoil, flaws in judicial systems, and ultimately, the grit and tenacity that thousands of children exhibit each day just to make it through.
