Amazon and B&N Top 100 best-selling romantic comedy and humorous mystery author D. D. Scott two-steps into your heart with Book One of her debut series. It´s Chick Lit, Gone-Country. Think Sex and the City meets Urban Cowboy. Manhattan apparel designer Roxy Rae Vaughn, who´s also a still-in-the-closet, country line dancing queen, wants to be a fashion success story. Tired of being nothing more than a Fifth Avenue up-and-comer, thanks to her elitist parents, Roxy moves to Nashville, Tennessee and opens a boutique in a local tractor supply store, the only retail space she can afford. Short on cash and way, way down on luck, she rear-ends a pick-up truck belonging to a tomato-growin´, bootscootin´ cowboy who is anything but the perfect fit for her career plans, although he is her ideal dance partner. Can Roxy accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and her cowboy´s lead? Tomato farmer by day and bootscootin´ instructor by night Zayne McDonald doesn´t give a damn about winning Nashville´s heirloom tomato contest, even though his late father did. Zayne wants to honor his father, but what he really wants is to line dance his way to a winner´s spotlight. When he and Roxy are discovered by a huge dance show producer, Zayne learns it´s partnering with Roxy that´s his winning hybrid mix. That is, if he can keep her and the tomato contest away from Beefsteak Jack Baudlin, the toughest tomato man in CMT country. About the author: D.

Who I am in real life doesn´t matter; who I am in the game is what counts. Before it happened, I bumbled my way through the virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game The Greenwood, made crap builds, and wasted my time. Then I got murdered. A shadowy figure took my hard-accumulated possessions and left me to die. I admit, I did a rage quit and deleted my character. Then I wondered what kind of person that rage-quit made me? Maybe I was a quitter? And maybe I really was someone who would let a bully get away with disrespecting me? But then again, no: I respected myself too much for that. I rolled a new character, I vowed to get good, and re-entered The Greenwood. I took on the name Barcud and the profession of ranger. I vowed to rise through the levels, hone my skills, hunt down the shadowy figure, and grind his face in the dirt. This is my story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Thelwell.

Lit follows Mary Karr´s descent into the inferno of alcoholism and madness - and her astonishing resurrection. Karr´s longing for a solid family seems secure when her marriage to a handsome, Shakespeare-quoting poet produces a son they adore. But she can´t outrun her apocalyptic past. She drinks herself into the same numbness that nearly devoured her charismatic but troubled mother, reaching the brink of suicide. A hair-raising stint in ´´The Mental Marriott´´ awakens her to the possibility of joy, and leads her to an unlikely faith. Lit is about getting drunk and getting sober; becoming a mother by letting go of a mother; learning to write by learning to live. It is a truly electrifying story of how to grow up - as only Mary Karr can tell it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Karr.

Kurt Wenzel’s savvy novel, Lit Life, is a wickedly funny and provocative debut about the passions and perils of the writing life.Set in Manhattan and the Hamptons, Lit Life takes the listener on a tour through the world of two eccentric writers. Kyle Clayton, a ´once hot, now not´ young author/provocateur with a serious case of writer’s block, moves through New York nightlife in an inebriated haze until he meets his literary hero, the dyspeptic and obscure novelist Richard Whitehurst, who is smitten with the notion of Kyle’s former fame. Richard is suffering his own form of breakdown as a result of years of public ambivalence toward his work and the looming collapse of his marriage. As the two writers’ lives collide, they use each other as the crutches they’ve both been seeking to survive in the world of publishing. Supported by a cast of wonderfully drawn characters, Richard’s disillusioned wife, Meryl; his desperate-for-love, drug-addicted daughter, Kerry; the old-school agent Larry Wabzug, a friend of both writers, Kyle and Richard search for fame and credibility, not necessarily in that order, in an attempt to function in the lit life. 1.

Autobiographical sketches and stories from India´s best-loved writer in English. For more than four decades now, by way of innumerable short stories, essays, poems, and novels, Ruskin Bond has championed simplicity and quietude in life and in art. This collection of essays and episodes from his journals is, in his own words, ´´a celebration of my survival as a freelance´´. The author´s early forays into the literary magazines of the 1950s and ´60s are described in the first part of the audiobook, along with some examples of his work at the time. The sections that follow contain extracts from an unpublished travel journal he kept during the ´60s, episodes from the highways on which he was a frequent traveler, and vignettes of life in Mussoorie, past and present. With understated humor and compassion, Ruskin Bond records the charming eccentricities of friends and acquaintances (a former princess cheerfully obsessed with death and disaster); the silent miracles of nature (´´New moon in a purple sky´´); life´s little joys (the smell of onions frying) and its fleeting regrets. Nostalgic and heart-warming, full of wisdom and charm, The Lamp Is Lit provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of ´´our very own resident Wordsworth in prose´´. 1. Language: English.
