Just Call Me Janie
Written by Janie Shores
Click here to visit website

“In my judgment, the name Janie Ledlow Shores should be inscribed, along with Helen Keller and Julia Strudwick Tutwiler, at the top of the list of Alabama’s Greatest Women.”
Senator Howell Heflin

“Janie Shores was the light the Alabama Supreme Court always needed. Sensitive, warm, hard working and always open to how the law canhelp those with little power.”
Morris Dees, Founder and Chief Trial Attorney,
Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, Alabama

Janie Shores, the first woman elected to Alabama’s Supreme Court, may be one of the most important people you’ve never heard of, because many of the cases she worked on in the social upheaval of the 1960s and 70s shaped the key debates of today’s divisive politics.
Janie defied considerable odds and broke all the traditional social molds of her time to become an outstanding inspiration to her law school classmates and ultimately the first woman justice elected to the Alabama Supreme Court. Her remarkable career spanned some of the most turbulent times in U.S., and particularly Alabama, history.


George Wallace: An Enigma
Written by Mary S. Palmer

Palmer has created a uniquely Southern style in telling this story without losing the truth of Wallace’s many moral and political contradictions that made him the ultimate prodigal son of politics in the deep Souh.
Patrick Miller, President, Southeastern Literary Tourism Initiative

Author Mary Palmer takes us into the tumultuous political scene of George Wallace. George Wallace: An Enigma reveals the good, the bad, and the ugly, of one of the most controversial politicians of our time… and how his views evolved over time
Cindy Ingram, Director of Satsuma Public Library

George Wallace: An Enigma by Mary S. Palmer, is an interpretive glimpse into the life of Alabama’s most complex and divisive Governor. Wallace was in the forefront of serious segregation issues facing Alabama and the United States in the second half of the twentieth century. The book shares how he dealt with those issues; as Alabama’s Governor, a candidate for the presidency, and as a survivor of an attempted assassination.

It addresses unequivocally his supporting of white supremacy, a reminder that half a century ago extreme prejudice did exist. Water fountains, soda fountains and restrooms and schools were all segregated. George Wallace did what was politically expedient at the time, opposing any form of desegregation, galvanizing a deeply divided nation.

Although never condoning Wallace and what he stood for, the book explores the complexities of a man who exploited the times for his own aims, and yet deeply regretted doing so later in life.

George Wallace; An Enigma, for the first time paints a complete, never before known portrait of the man who was at the forefront of civil rights obstructionism and ‘Good ole Boy’ politics.

Written by Edmond G. Addeo

homeWINNER of the 2016 Chaucer Award

A epic of little-known Western events spanning almost 3,000 years, UZUMATI is the history of the discovery and habitation of the beautiful, legendary Yosemite Valley, first by migrating Indians and then by white ’49ers of the California Gold Rush. Uzumati (u-ZOO-ma-tee) is the Miwok Indian word for “grizzly bear”. White settlers couldn’t pronounce the native name, and it came out “Yosemite”. Ultimately, the primary characters of this remarkable saga, the wily, ancient Chief Tenaya and the dashing young Jim Savage from Illinois, clash in a thrilling but tragic battle known as The Mariposa Indian War of 1851.

About the Author:
Edmond G. Addeo has been a journalist, a freelance editor and collaborator, and the author of four novels as well as eight non-fiction books. He refers to this award-winning historical novel as “Michener’s HAWAII of Yosemite Valley.”

Silver Medal Winner IPBA book of the year!

…creative and absorbing… – Clive Cussler
“In the spirit of the original, Return to Treasure Island is a fun and fascinating read for those seeking an old school adventure novel of piracy and discovery.” – The Midwest Book Review

Return to Treasure Island is… a first class sequel to the original beloved novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. John O’Melveny Woods has skillfully drawn us back into the life of Jim Hawkins in the most successful way imaginable.

From The Foreword by LeVar Burton:
“Three years after his triumphant return from Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins learns that Long John Silver has been captured and sentenced to hang. Jims’ fateful decision to help Silver ultimately propels them into a search for the greatest treasure of all – The Pharaohs Gold.
A cryptic map, secret codes and puzzling clues all lead back to Treasure Island, where courage, cunning and mutual trust are the only weapons that can save Hawkins and Silver from a horrific death and help them in their quest for the Treasure.
Written in first person narrative, the book blends the cadence and style of the original Treasure Island while introducing memorable new pirate characters and locations. Additionally, a coming of age love story interweaves the adventure.
Return to Treasure Island hearkens back to the days when action, mystery and adventure rode hand in hand with storytelling, and promises to entertain readers of all ages.”

Lost Tomb of Alexander
Written by John O’Melveny Woods

A mysterious fragment of an ancient tablet surfaces and finds its way into the hands of modern day archeologist Diandra Weiss. She recognizes it as the missing half to The Alexander Tablet that could lead her to the Monarchs’ missing tomb.

Chance brings together a retired MI6 cryptographer, a graduate student of ancient languages, and Diandra’s former Special Forces not-so-ex-husband as they search for the other half of the tablet presumed lost in WW II. They band together as The Seekers, dedicating themselves to finding the missing tablet and ultimately to discovering the legendary tomb itself.

Along the way they face obstacles that nearly doom their mission, including death threats from a sinister group within the Vatican known only as The Guardians, and a strange benefactor who is as interested as they are in the tomb’s discovery.

Their search leads them to discover that our ancestors left messages for us around the world that must be uncovered and deciphered before it is too late to save the world from major catastrophes.


The Crusaders
Written by John O’Melveny Woods

The tumultuous years of the1960s were more than extraordinary; they were without parallel.

From rock and roll to the space program, from drugs to free love, from the Vietnam War to the assassinations of beloved leaders, from civil rights to equality for women, the events of the 1960s forever changed an entire generation.

The Crusaders is a collection of 1960s stories… that ignores most of that.

Instead, it’s about a group of friends who grew up in a bedroom community near Los Angeles, California, during those seminal times.

From pubescent naiveté to the experimenting of curious minds, The Crusaders takes the reader through the 60s from the youthful points of view of these friends with warmth, humor and good-natured fun.

The Crusaders both celebrates the freedom of the 60s and also exposes the dangers and unintended consequences that befell them as the young friends, slipping deeper into the uncharted waters of the times, paid dearly for their actions.

At its heart, The Crusaders is about the friendship, loyalty, and love for each other that anchored the young friends, enabling them to navigate those challenging times and come through the chaos to healing.
