The Way Back

9781771681285

February 1 marks the official release date of The Way Back, the eighth book in Abbie Williams’ amazing romantic, endearing and simply awesome series, The Shore Leave Cafe.

The series has explored this wonderful family of women who reside by the shores of a Minnesota lake and in these last few books of the series, takes a darker and somewhat paranormal turn.

Ruthann Gordon  has disappeared.

Swept away by powerful circumstances beyond her control, Ruthann awakens in a place far removed from what she has ever known. Terrified and alone, fate guides her path to people she is certain she has never met, but somehow knows.

Marshall Rawley has also vanished from his hometown of Jalesville, Montana, and there has been no word for months. Trapped in the wild and dangerous past, Ruthann discovers truths she never imagined – and begins to understand her role in saving not only her family, but the family of the man she loves more than her own life.

You can start the series from the beginning in print, ebook or audio or pick it up with Until Tomorrow by requesting it over at NetGalley where we’ll keep it up for a few more weeks.

Sneak Peek: [Dis]Connected: Poems & Stories of Connection and Otherwise

9781771681452Today will commence the first of a few upcoming posts with sneak peeks of our upcoming fall titles. I’d like to start with what I think is the most unique book we’ve published to date.

[Dis]Connected: Poems & Stories of Connection and Otherwise is a collaborative project with some of today’s most confessional and popular contemporary poets. This amazing collection of poetry and short stories has contributions from upcoming and current powerhouses in contemporary poetry including: Sara Bond, Nikita Gill, Pierre Alex Jeanty, Amanda Lovelace, Canisia Lubrin, Trista Mateer, Cyrus Parker, Yena Sharma Purmasir, Liam Ryan, R.H. Swaney and Iain S. Thomas.

Humanity exists in a hyper connected world, where our closest friends, loves and enemies lie but a keyboard stroke away. Few know this better than the poets who have risen to the top of their trade by sharing their emotion, opinion and art with millions of fans. Combining the poetic forces of some of today’s most popular and confessional poets, this book presents poems and short stories about connection wrapped up in a most unique exercise in creative writing.

Follow along as your favorite poets connect with each other; offering their poetry to the next poet who tells a story based on the concept presented to them. With poetry, stories and art, [Dis]Connected is a mixed media presentation of connection, isolation, love and loneliness.

[Dis]Connected will be released on October 1, 2018. Please join me in celebrating this collaboration with a tweet or some instagram love to these poets. (You can click on their names above to take you to their twitter pages!)
