The Comfort of Monsters (2021)
Willa C Richards
"The Comfort of Monsters captivates with a cold case, and becomes an unflinching, unapologetic story of sexuality, victimhood, and the dangerous pull of memory. Richards exposes the underbelly of grief, shows the heartbeat shaking that thin skin, and leaves you, at novel’s end, holding something raw, fragile and essentially human. A remarkable debut."

Better Luck Next Time (2020)
Julia Claiborne Johnson
"Charming, captivating and big-hearted, Better Luck Next Time pulls you into a fascinating and hilarious world—a Depression-era divorce ranch outside of Reno—where love in all its complexities will have you laughing and crying until the last page."

How Quickly She Disappears (2020)
Raymond Fleischmann
"Enthralls from the first page to the last. It's both a gripping, cinematic mystery and a powerful exploration of the way that loss and longing tip into obsession."
