The Death of the Material Girl
($15.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0035-7, paperback
Karen Taylor dreams to be rich and famous someday--just like her idol, Madonna--for her dreams are sometimes much better than reality. Left by her father about five years ago, Karen and her mother have succumbed to a poverty-stricken life, with her mother working almost all the time in a low-paying job while Karen stays at home in their dilapidated trailer. The absence of trust in men her mother has rubs off on Karen, and although she is very beautiful and wanted by many boys in her high school, she brushes them off--until she meets Trevor Brown.
Trevor is unlike any boy Karen has ever met before, and they soon fall madly in love with each other. Karen ends up getting pregnant soon after they start dating, and so they plan to be together to raise the baby. But while struggling financially and watching their relationship suffer, Trevor finds out a grave secret about Karen and leaves her and his son immediately.
Baffled, heartbroken, and terrified, Karen takes her son to Hollywood to finally pursue her lifelong dream: to become famous. But with no money and no real direction, will this material girl flourish in this city of dreams?

Thursday the 12th Productions Presents: The Invincibility Factor
($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7808-7, hardcover
Thursday the 12th Productions is not a title. It is not series. It is not my name and is not yours. It is the day before Friday the 13th and it is our last day. Thursday the 12th is your day to complete what is not. It is your last day that you wake up next to your wife. It's the last morning you take your kids to school. It's the last day you have a family supper. And it is your last day to speak completely unbridled and unrestrained the words, the thoughts, the feelings that you have always been to afraid to speak; the words you've taken for granted; the words you've dreamed of saying to your most beloved and to your most loathed of associates. It is your last day of mortality--celebrate your fleeting last moments by making them matter at least to someone other than yourself. This is Thursday the 12th productions: the thoughts and madness that have come from the last days on earth that we somehow survive. This is us: a people that forgets everyday that there are no days. And this our holiday: Thursday the 12th, your day to remember there are no more days, no guarantees, no second of breath that was accidental or wasted unless we've wasted them on accident. Mazal Tov!

The Actor's Bible: The Three-in-One Tale
($9.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7805-6, paperback
Vargo Vortney--he is as unique and unusual as his name. And so goes this performer's life.
Born into a family of actors--gypsies, if you will--young Vargo's upbringing, mostly at the hands of his overbearing father, sets him on a course for fame and fortune; however, the path to greatness often leads to great misfortune.
Perhaps it is the butterfly--Vortney's favorite insect--that is most symbolic of his journey, his metamorphosis and prophetically so. Before the butterfly emerges from its cocoon, beautiful and transformed, it must go through change, and it is during this time of change that Vortney, tortured and ill, finds the intrinsic link between the conscious and subconscious. It is only then that he too emerges beautiful and transformed and gives the performance of a lifetime. But as one informed might know, the adult butterfly does not exist for long. Will Vargo Vortney's path mimic that of his beloved butterflies?
