Mademoiselle by Suzanne Jenkins

Gorgeous Pipi Wiener’s family changes forever when their dad is tragically killed in the Vietnam War. Maybe because of it, marriage and family, mother’s objective for all her daughters, is the last thing on Pipi’s mind. Pipi’s thrilling goal is to work in Manhattan, writing for Mademoiselle, a glossy fashion magazine she grows up with, having four older sisters.

Then, handsome Walter Spencer walks into her life, upsetting her perfectly executed plot. Too strong to give into love, Pipi is determined to stick to her plan. Taking a job with the Department of Defense to run from his broken heart, Walter never forgets beautiful Pipi.

In the end, Pipi has a choice to make – will she follow her exciting dream? Or is there an even greater plan, including everlasting, love waiting for her?

Fantasy

Heroes for Hire: Attacking the Goblin Horde by Trip Ellington

Vance Pickman isn’t your normal hero. While your more traditional heroes rush into a dragon head-on in a very heroic, albeit dangerous, manner, Vance plans ahead, bringing along an extra mare for the dragon to snack on while he escapes with the princess, the ancient crown, what have you…

When a client tells Vance and his band of misfits that his daughter has been captured by goblins, arguably one of the most dangerous creatures in the land, he almost rejects him without thought…until Vance sees the large bounty he’s willing to pay…

Science Fiction

Exclusive Slip by David Estes

Someone must die before another can be born…

As sea levels rise and livable landmasses shrink, the Reorganized United States of America has instituted population control measures to ensure there are sufficient resources and food to sustain the growing population. Birth authorization must be paid for and obtained prior to having a child. Someone must die before another can be born, keeping the country in a population neutral position at what experts consider to be the optimal population. The new laws are enforced by a ruthless government organization known as Pop Con, responsible for terminating any children resulting from unauthorized births, and any illegals who manage to survive past their second birthday, at which point they are designated a national security threat and given the name Slip.

But what if one orphan slipped through the cracks? What if someone knew all the loopholes and how to exploit them? Would it change anything? Would the delicate resource balance be thrown into a tailspin, threatening the lives of everyone

And how far would the government go to find and terminate the Slip?
