Praise for Someone Should Pay for Your Pain
By Franz Nicolay

Praise for The Town Crazy
By Suzzy Roche

“Singer-songwriter Roche probes the secrets of a small American town in this immersive character-driven tale. . . . Roche’s deep understanding of [the characters] will keep readers engaged all the way to the end.”

Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Cold Last Swim
By Junior Burke

“Cast in the style of noir, albeit sunny California noir . . . Burke’s narrative is a whirlwind escape into the speculative Land of What-If,” and “the timing . . . might well be perfect. We can be entertained in Burke’s alternate land of the stars and the star-struck just at a time when the real world brakes to a dead stop.”
