By Ginny Lowndes

Corrugated Roads is about a young girl’s funny and sometimes heartbreaking interpretation of the tragic and just plain bizare events in her family’s life in a drought-stricken Outback town in Australia’s 1950s. Told in 27 inter-linked short stories, Corrugated Roads has been described by writer, Geoffrey Dean as “a gritty telling and a book I couldn’t put down. And, in spite of its serious subject matter, there is relief in the unexpected humour that arises out of the girl’s imaginative misconceptions about events beyond her experience.”

Alan Marshall, Writer (I Can Jump Puddles) said, “Her stories are amazingly varied… but tying them all together is a natural understanding of human character and a keen eye to record the significant. These are extremely modern and frank stories.”

SinJin

The Bryn and SinJin Series, Book 1
By HP Mallory
Abandoned on the battlefield by the people she calls her tribe, Bryn must face the fact that she is now playing prisoner to the Queen of the Underworld, who also happens to be her fraternal twin sister. As the days and months go by with no word from the Supreme Elder of her tribe, Bryn thinks her life couldn’t get much worse.
Abandoned on the battlefield by the people she calls her tribe, Bryn must face the fact that she is now playing prisoner to the Queen of the Underworld, who also happens to be her fraternal twin sister. As the days and months go by with no word from the Supreme Elder of her tribe, Bryn thinks her life couldn’t get much worse.
While Bryn bemoans her imprisonment, her sister, Jolie, is doing everything in her power to ensure that blood ties are thicker than they appear. Jolie wants nothing more than to befriend Bryn and teach her not to hate the Underworld, but to embrace it.
But Bryn fights the very idea of becoming one with her enemies, although she can’t help her attraction to a certain six-hundred-year-old English vampire, Sinjin Sinclair. Once Bryn is placed in Sinjin’s care, she’ll find herself battling the undeniable magnetism of the vampire, the one creature she abhors above all others.
Sinjin’s quick wit, his indisputable sex appeal, and the mystery that surrounds him all point to the fact that if Bryn falls for him, she’ll be in over her head. But, as a warrior through and through, Bryn isn’t the type to fall for anything, especially a handsome face. If anyone should be able to withstand the lure of the vampire, Bryn appears to be the likeliest candidate.
Of course, looks can be deceiving…

From New York Times And USA Today Bestselling Urban Fantasy Romance Author, HP Mallory, Comes The Lily Harper Series!

“H.P. Mallory has a quick wit, a fresh voice, and a clever way with words. If you like Charlaine Harris, you’ll love H.P. Mallory!” ~ Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author

If you like your books steamy (this is an adult fantasy romance, not for kids or teens!) and you aren’t easily offended by potty-mouthed, crass guardian angels, read on!

THE UNDERGROUND CITY is the second book in the Lily Harper urban fantasy series. The first book is BETTER OFF DEAD!

The Underground City:
Abandon Hope, All Ye Who Enter Here…

Lily Harper narrowly survived her first mission as a Soul Retriever in the first level of the Underground City. After that harrowing trip, she wants nothing more than some down-time, but as with most things involving the afterlife, nothing ever quite works out the way Lily wants it to.

Her newest mission will see her traveling to the sewer aqueduct of the Underground City and later, the prison. But, luckily for Lily, she’s got the hunky yet antisocial bladesmith, Tallis Black, by her side. And quite possibly unluckily for her, she’s also got her guardian angel, Bill, who’s up to his old, foul-mouthed antics.

Between learning how to wield her sword, personal training with a hot-headed demon, traveling to the Underground City not one but two times and discovering that the leader of the Underground City harbors a curious fascination with her, Lily’s hope was abandoned a long time ago.

The Lily Harper Series, Book 1
By HP Mallory
If there’s such a thing as luck, Lily Harper doesn’t have it. Killed in a car accident before it’s her time to go, Lily learns that the hereafter isn’t exactly what she hoped it might be.
From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, HP Mallory, Comes BETTER OFF DEAD, the first book in the Lily Harper series!

If there’s such a thing as luck, Lily Harper definitely doesn’t have it.

Killed in a car accident before it’s her time to go, Lily learns that the hereafter isn’t exactly what she hoped it might be.

First, there’s AfterLife Enterprises, the company responsible for sorting out the recently dead and sending them on their way to the Kingdom, (aka happily ever after,) or to the Underground City, (not so happily ever after.) Learning that Lily’s death was indirectly their fault (her guardian angel, Bill, was MIA during her accident and was one of their employees,) Afterlife Enterprises offers Lily the chance to live again. But, as with most things involving the afterlife, beware the fine print. Most notably, Lily will have to become a soul retriever, venturing into the bowels of the Underground City to retrieve souls that were mistakenly sent there by Afterlife Enterprises during a Y2K computer glitch.

Second, there’s angel Bill. As if risking her second life in the Underground City wasn’t enough, Lily’s guide to the Underground is none other than her incompetent, alcoholic, womanizing guardian angel, Bill, the antithesis of anything wholesome. With only Dante’s Inferno and Bill to help her in her quest, Lily’s future isn’t looking bright.

Finally, there’s the legendary bladesmith, Tallis Black. As Scottish as his kilts and heavy brogue, Tallis Black is a centuries-old Celt who, for reasons only known to him, offers to train Lily and act as her escort into the depths of the Underground City. Dark, brooding and definitely dangerous, Lily knows she shouldn’t trust Tallis, but she also can’t deny her attraction to him.

Between soul retrieving in hell, dealing with Bill and trying to figure out what’s in it for Tallis, Lily wonders if maybe she would’ve just been better off dead.

By Jean Coleman

From composting carrot shavings, grass clippings, and horse manure to weeding pesky, prickly plants, I Met Him In My Overalls draws vivid parallels between garden tasks and life. In her commercial flower garden, Jean Coleman saw biblical principles simply displayed and she drew closer to God in the process. Join her garden journey and get a poignant view of life from a heavenly perspective.
Jean Coleman intended to grow flowers for market in her two acre commercial garden when she moved to a farm in the country, but God had another plan: He intended to grow her! Everything pertaining to market gardening became a parable for life. Whether weeding unwanted, pesky plants or plowing the soil for row-making, Jean saw pertinent parallels for life.
For example, horse manure, broken egg shells and used coffee grounds, all smelly discards, when added to a compost pile, eventually decompose and become fertilizer to nourish other plants. In this process she saw the resurrection of Jesus. He takes our (useless, smelly) sins when we confess and release them to Him and offers us forgiveness and new life in return.
Planting provided another illustration for life. Seeds must be underground and in darkness before they emerge into the light and become what they were intended to be. So it often is with us.

Jean unzips her soul, revealing childhood shame and regrets as she relates her insights from the garden. Her prior misconceived perceptions take on a new hue as she sees life through a heavenly lens. As the gardener and tender of her flowers for the purpose of selling them in the marketplace, she acquired a new and profound realization of God’s purposes for us as the tender of our souls.
Join her garden journey and take a look at yourself, exploring those places that need to be composted but instead are “rotting” without ultimate purpose and good.
See God’s messages to us in the most ordinary of things: dirt, stems, blooms, even insects. Take a look through her viewfinder and see life with a new design. It can be life changing!
