JoJo's Ghost

by D. D. Charles

Because being dead can be a real killer... A stripper, a prostitute, and a bartender find themselves in the afterlife. And if they can just get the hang of being dead, they’d love to find, and murder, the man who put them there. From the author of Zombie Revolution

Always Magnolia

by Dianna Dann

It was always Magnolia; Only Magnolia would do. A love story for the fractured and broken... Bobby Jack Beaumont has been forgetting for as long as Magnolia has known him. It was easy to let him do it--nobody wanted to remember those things. Now he's out in the scrub by the railroad tracks, lost and empty. He's forgotten all of it--everything. Even Magnolia. If she reminds him, if she tells it just so...they can fix the past and he'll come home again. But not every bad thing can be fixed by telling a different story.
