Patricia Engel’s collection of stories, Vida, quickly established her as one of our country’s best young writers, winning praise from Junot Díaz, Uzodinma Iweala, Francisco Goldman, and others. Her first novel is a vibrant and wistful narrative about an American girl abroad in Paris, who navigates the intoxicating and treacherous complexities of independence, friendship, and romance.

It’s Not Love, It’s Just Paris ($25.00) is a spellbinding love story, a portrait of a Paris caught between old world grandeur and the international greenblood elite, and an exploration of one woman’s journey to distinguish honesty from artifice and lay claim to her own life.

Patricia Engel's debut, Vida, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Fiction Award, Young Lions Fiction Award, winner of a Florida Book Award and Independent Publisher Book Award, and named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, Barnes & Noble, and L.A. Weekly. Her award-winning fiction has appeared in A Public Space, The Atlantic, Boston Review, Guernica, Harvard Review, and elsewhere. Born to Colombian parents and raised in New Jersey, she is a graduate of New York University and earned her MFA at Florida International University.

My Madonna: My Intimate Friendship with the Blue Eyed Girl on her Arrival in New York ($10.99) is an intimate memoir by Norris W. Burroughs. The memoir centers on the Material Girl herself. Mr. Burroughs had the distinct pleasure of dating the superstar just before her dizzying rise to fame. She was a bright-eyed nineteen-year-old dancer, a recent arrival to New York City, hungry for stardom but unsure of how she would get there. He was an aspiring rocker, spending his nights performing at CBGB,s and his days making t-shirts in the Garment District.

There was something different about her, a yearning, a sense of forward propulsion. He knew he would not be able to hold on to her for long. It was Norris who initiated Madonna into his world of rock & roll, Norris who introduced her to her future band mates. In his revealing memoir, Norris attempts to reconcile the young woman he knew and loved with the pop icon she has become. The book is a meditation on the slippery nature of fame, set against the backdrop of the grungy 80s music scene. Many books have been written on Madonna, but few have such an intimate, personal perspective and focus on this crucial time in her artistic development.

Norris W. Burroughs is a writer and illustrator who was born in Harlem, New York. Burroughs dated Madonna in the fall of 1978, when she had recently arrived in New York from Michigan, several years prior to her amazing success. Madonna’s biographers have interviewed Burroughs, and his quotes appear in most accounts of her life, but he has never told his story in his own words. Burroughs feels that it is vital to place Madonna’s ascent in the context of the contemporary New York scene. Burroughs is the author and artist of Voodoo Macbeth, a graphic novel depicting the events surrounding a 1936 performance of the Shakespeare play that impresario Orson Welles staged and directed. Burroughs' father was an actor in that production, playing the part of Hecate, a role that Welles changed to that of a male demonic force. Burroughs lives with his wife and son in Mill Valley, California.

Brilliant, haunting, breathtakingly suspenseful, Night Film ($28.00) is a superb literary thriller by Marisha Pessl, the New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster debut Special Topics in Calamity Physics.
 
On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova—a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.
 
For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova’s dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.
Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world. The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more.

Marisha Pessl’s bestselling debut novel, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, won the John Sargent Sr. First Novel Prize (now the Center for Fiction’s Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize), and was selected as one of the 10 Best Books of the Year by the New York Times Book Review. Pessl grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, and currently resides in New York City.

As a child, Amanda Lindhout escaped a violent household by paging through issues of National Geographic and imagining herself in its exotic locales. Aspiring to understand the world and live a significant life, she backpacked through Latin America, Laos, Bangladesh, and India, and emboldened by each adventure, went on to Sudan, Syria, and Pakistan. In war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter. And then, in August 2008, she traveled to Somalia—“the most dangerous place on earth.” On her fourth day, she was abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road.

Held hostage for 460 days, Amanda converts to Islam as a survival tactic, receives “wife lessons” from one of her captors, and risks a daring escape. Moved between a series of abandoned houses in the desert, she survives on memory—every lush detail of the world she experienced in her life before captivity—and on strategy, fortitude, and hope.

Vivid and suspenseful, as artfully written as the finest novel, A House in the Sky ($26.00) is the searingly intimate story of an intrepid young woman and her search for compassion in the face of unimaginable adversity.

Amanda Lindhout is the founder of the Global Enrichment Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports development, aid, and education initiatives in Somalia and Kenya.

What is POD?  How does it differ from self-publishing?  Will either be easier, faster, better than the route to a traditional publisher?

All authors need to investigate the most appropriate method of publication before finishing your book.  You owe it to yourself -- and your pocketbook -- to learn the advantages and pitfalls of each type.  No method is appropriate for all books and all authors.

For some methods the services provided are quite different, and the author might pay all the expenses.  Is it important that your book be eligible for review and sold in bookstores?  In the final analysis, will you earn more money with one procedure over the others?  The instructor has worked with all three publishing choices and will guide you in making this crucial decision.

Like much of our culture’s pop psychology quick fixes, Dr. Phil’s counsel often leaves his guests – and others like them – feeling confused and inadequate.

In his new book Talking Back to Dr. Phil ($17.95), counselor, educator and attorney David Bedrick introduces a fresh approach to addressing our disturbing feelings and behaviors, and encourages a loved-based psychology rooted in the belief that there is profound meaning in our struggles, which can be healed when compassionately reframed.

Using examples from the television show Dr. Phil, the author illustrates mainstream psychology’s tendency to shame people into thinking something is wrong with them and debunks many standard protocols and “fixes.” Readers will easily identify with the guests as story after story presents how our difficulties can be the seeds of our own unique beauty, power, and intelligence.

David Bedrick JD, Dipl. PW, spent eight years on the faculty of the University of Phoenix and taught courses for the US Navy, 3M, the American Society of Training and Development, the Process Work Institute, and psychological associations. An expert in counseling individuals and couples, Bedrick focused on domestic relations and family law, as well as women’s empowerment, children’s rights and more.
