The Days of Rain
By Christine Hughes
Contemporary NA Romance
Expected re-release date: December 10th, 2013
Just when he thought his life was turning around…
Things haven’t been easy for Jacob Morgan. Persecuted by the ghosts of his past, Jake lives each day just going through the motions, barely getting by. Then Lily Burns comes to town and befriends him. As Jake starts to heal, he begins to hope that he has finally overcome the mistakes and tragedies that have tormented him for so long. But just when he thinks his problems are solved, his past comes back to haunt him, and once again, Jake is confronted by situations he is ill-equipped to handle.
Can Jake hold on to the progress he has made, or will the lies, guilt, and secrets he’s tried to ignore shove him back into an abyss from which there is no escape?
Grabbing the nearly empty bottle of Jack from the counter, he walked toward the back of the house. He finally turned on the lights when he reached his bedroom. Unscrewing the cap, he took a long pull. His eyes were drawn to his old guitar sitting on the stand, covered in an inch of dust. Stepping over the piles of laundry that littered his bedroom floor, he picked it up and stood in front of the mirror. He lifted the strap over his head and let the Gibson fall in front of him. It still fit as it had two years ago. The last time he played was the night before his life went to hell. His eyes burned with the memory. His throat burned as he poured the rest of the alcohol. He removed the strap and held the guitar by the neck. His eyes shifted to the stand in the corner, but as pain and heartache overtook him, he lifted the guitar above his head and smashed it into his reflection.
A former Army brat, Christine Hughes moved quite often. She spent much of her time losing herself in books and creating stories about many of the people she’d met. Falling in love with literature was easy for her and she majored in English while attending college in New Jersey. Not sure where her love of reading and writing fit, she became a middle school English teacher. After nine years of teaching others to appreciate literature, she decided to take the plunge and write her first novel. Now at home focusing on making writing her new career, she spends her time creating characters and plot points instead of grading papers.
Holt’s only salvation is her…
“Sunlight filtered through the trees, brightening parts of the forest while leaving others in shadow. Birds chirped and chattered serenely. Everything seemed peaceful.
That’s what frightened me so much.” – Holt (hero from Dead New World)
Fresh out of boot camp, sixteen-year-old Holt is thrown into the deep end on a search and destroy mission. No walls to hide behind, no machine guns or bunkers for protection, just the boy next to him and his M-16. Without his best friend Ambrose to look up to, Holt wouldn’t stand a chance in hell. When his platoon is ambushed, his first mission ends in tragedy. Holt loses a leg and Ambrose, well…that’s better left unsaid.
Holt’s only salvation is Nancy, the nurse who helps him recover from his injuries. But when she’s abducted by the Reverend’s Horsemen, Holt will have to face his darkest fears to save her.
Dead New World by Ryan Hill
Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.
They follow orders. And if Holt and Ambrose want to kill some undead, they’ll do the same. But when a routine mission goes horribly wrong, the best friends’ lives are flayed to the bone.
Now there’s only one light in the darkness of Holt’s life, and when she’s taken, he’ll do anything to get her back. Even if that means defying orders and using his best friend as a weapon. Holt and Ambrose risk all to save her, but what they discover among the hordes threatens to remake humanity. Again.
In the end, will there be anything left to live for in this dead new world?

Razzle Dazzle (Gin & Jazz, Book 2)
Jack is on the verge of silent film stardom, but Hollywood glory won’t heal his broken heart. Then the seductive screen idol—Roman Pasquale—sweeps Jack away, and makes him his own. Will Roman’s obsessive love finally bring Jack true happiness?
Jack is devastated by the loss of Nick, his best friend and lover. His only other friend, new Hollywood star Trixie Fox, comes to his rescue. What he doesn’t know, is that she’s also helping Roman Pasquale in his carefully planned seduction of the shy and innocent Jack.
Suave film screen idol—Roman Pasquale—has been obsessed with Jack Stone from the moment he spotted him at a Global Studios party. He will stop at nothing until the golden-haired young man belongs to him. An expert at getting what he wants, Roman plans every wicked word, look and move to bring him closer to achieving his prize.
Jack is on the brink of stardom, and can’t believe that his movie star crush, Roman Pasquale, is taking an interest in him. But he resists the older, more sophisticated man’s attempts at seducing him. After all, he still loves Nick, and just isn’t ready to try again with anyone else. But when Roman turns on the charm, Jack is tempted. Can Roman replace Nick in Jack’s heart? Or is the magical world of the great Roman Pasquale all an illusion?
As he followed the maître d’, he immediately spied his prey. The thought had crossed Roman’s mind that were he to see the object of his affection again, he might be disappointed—the spell might be broken and his lovely boy would be just like every other young hopeful who had pleasured him over the years. However, that was not the case at all. His heart accelerated even more, and he was actually concerned that he might become dizzy and make a complete idiot of himself. But he regained his composure quickly when both Jack and Goldstein spotted him heading their way.
Jack was clearly shocked. Terrified would also be a good way to describe how he looked.
I will have to coax him gently. But it is easy to see that he will be mine before too long.
Herbert Goldstein—seated at the end of the booth closest to him—stood up. Vincent Franklin, the studio head, and Marvin Holst, one of the leading directors at Global, were also in attendance, and arranged on the curved sides of the booth. That left Jack at the far end. Roman also noted that it was obvious Holst was considering Jack for a new project. There would be no other reason for him to be there.
“Roman! Perfect timing. Please join us.”
Goldstein gestured for Roman to have a seat with them, and everyone scooted over to allow him to sit down. Right next to Jack.
“Hello, Vince, Marvin. It is so delightful to see you. It’s been ages! Marvin, I didn’t see you at the party a couple weeks ago, were you in attendance?”
In his peripheral vision, Roman could see Jack fidgeting. The boy was also doing the best he could not to make any physical contact with him, yet not sit in the director’s lap at the same time. But it was better that way—for now. Finally being this close to the man he had fantasised about night after night was bad enough. If he were to actually be touched by him, Roman was certain that even he wouldn’t be able to maintain his aloof demeanour.
“Oh no, very sorry. I had a late night editing. I needed to get the last picture finished, so that I could begin the next. You know how it is.”
Goldstein spoke up. “Actually, Roman, Jack was at your party. I was wondering if the two of you had a chance to meet that night?”
Roman turned his entire body to face Jack, his knees hitting the side of Jack’s thigh. The need to make contact with him had overcome Roman’s fear of being unnerved. Besides, Jack was doing that part so well all on his own. Roman was concerned that the poor boy might actually faint. If only they were alone, Roman would scoop him up in his arms, lay him on the bed and soothe his cares away. The picture of that in his mind made him hard and threatened to derail his composure. He brought his focus back to the question.
“I’m sorry, Jack. I can’t quite recall. There was so much going on that night, so many people. You’ll forgive me if I don’t remember whether we met or not? I was outside by the side of the house, then in the balcony by the front room. Does any of that sound familiar?”
“Oh God…” Jack said under his breath, just enough so that Roman could barely hear him.
Goldstein had a quizzical expression on his face, but was quickly distracted by a question Vincent asked him. Roman grinned at Jack. He refused to meet Roman’s gaze, but continued to stare at the tumbler of water that was perched on a cork coaster in front of him. But Roman didn’t care. He was touching the man of his recent dreams, their faces just inches from one another. He was close enough that he could even smell the clean scent of Jack above the heavy colognes of the other men.
“Too bad you guys didn’t talk then,” Goldstein said turning back to them. “But no matter, it works out great that you’re here now. You see, Marvin has a new project he was going to bring to you where you play the part of an adventurer…”
“…seeking treasure in Egypt. Jack here would play the archaeologist that you hire to help you locate this lost fortune. Of course, there is a terrible curse attached to these riches, so on and so forth—we’ll work it all out. Jack is just about to sign with us—we’re going to have Charlie draw up the contracts this afternoon. Oh, we were also going to get Miss Trixie Fox to play your love interest. She’s been up to your place a few times before, hasn’t she?”
“Why yes. As a matter of fact, I spoke with her at length at my party. So full of interesting information.”
Jack grabbed his drink, but the moisture from the condensation had effectively glued the coaster to the bottom.
“Here. Let me help you.”
Roman placed his hand over Jack’s where he held the glass, and plucked the small mat from the bottom, setting it down. Roman was loath to remove his hold—the contact between their skin so hot and full of promise—but under the prying eyes of the studio men, he dared not tarry. Jack shook noticeably, barely able to take a swallow of his drink, and Roman was alternately pleased and sorry that he had done this to him. He didn’t want to do anything that might cause the mighty bosses to change their minds about hiring his sweet Jack. It would be worth putting up with Trixie every day if he could have Jack as well.

The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse. A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.
We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.
Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.
It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.
My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
