New Books for June


by Tom Glaviano

When a hurricane rages on the coast, wreaking havoc on the lives of the people who live there, the most dangerous threat in the winds and crashing waves may not come from nature. Clayton Ackerman has made a life chasing the hurricanes, storms and blizzards that at times ravage virtually every part of the nation. While covering a tropical storm that was battering the Gulf Coast, Ackerman has an altercation with a young woman that turns deadly and opens his eyes to the potential he’d overlooked for years. People disappear during natural disasters, with little or no criminal investigation. He develops a plan to mine each storm for the young women he takes, venting the rage on them that has been building in him for years. When he takes Ashley Keen, the roommate of Kristen Martin, his intended target, during a hurricane on the North Carolina coast, he sets off a process that could mean the end for Kristen and her young deputy friend Tate Brooks.

by David Ravenwood

Ever since his mother died, David Sinclair, a tenth grader, can’t seem to finish anything he starts. After his alcoholic father gripes about all the money he’s blown on Karate lessons, tennis lessons, and several other things for his son that came to nothing, David decides to try out for the Heather Heights High School football team as a placekicker. Their star player, Glenn Samson, believes nothing matters but football. David has always admired Glenn and starts thinking the same way. Although he’s never kicked a football in his life, he sticks with it—lifting an old abandoned telephone pole lying on the ground on the huge lot behind his house over and over to gain strength, and practicing until his foot can boot the ball fifty yards. But being a football hero costs a precious price, threatening to ruin his football career before it even gets started. Can David recover from that cost? And will the lessons learned eventually carry him to a much sweeter victory that takes him beyond football?

TERROR REIGNS (paperback)

by Eleanor Cross

Tabitha Black does not believe in the supernatural even though for decades past her ancestors were gifted with clairvoyancy. She does not believe in legends either, because she would rather deal with facts. When her parents give her and her five best friends the graduation gift of a lifetime, her beliefs begins to change. On the way home from her boyfriend’s party on the eve of departure for her family’s tropical private island, she has her first glimpse of terrifying events that are about to unfold when she has her first vision. She should have heeded the warning. Upon arrival on the island, she and her friends meet a sole inhabitant of the island, Anthony Baker, who isn’t as fortunate to have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. While camping on the island, Anthony tells a legend that the locals around the connecting islands tell their children about zombies who have roamed the islands in search for human flesh. No one believes the story however until a few of Tabitha’s friends disappear without a trace. Driven to find her friends, and desperate to find answers, Tabitha is in a race against time. What she wasn’t prepared to discover is who is behind this heinous crime, what started it all, and how deep the lies and deception run and from whom.

Sample Poems


Memories of rain

stay with me long

after the graffiti has

dried on the fence

and faces of sidewalks.

My thoughts are

rekindled by a word

while I am inside the

coffee shop with my

scone gazing out at

the fence, and the

block comes alive

with skateboards and

bicyclists. Every now

and then one of them

stops with chalk or a

paintbrush. More art

and lingo are added.

A kid who is halfway

to being a hippy posts

himself outside the

coffee shop to begin

a mural, and no one

chases him away.

Like an artist he makes

the first strokes in red

while he sits there

patiently on his stool.


Words in invisible ink

appear when the paper

is held to the fire, but

the handwriting is so

tiny I wonder if the

sender likes me. I hold

a magnifying glass up

to the letter, exposing

the wavy lines, the

loops of calligraphy.

Analysis finds such

crooked lines and

inside every

indecipherable word

are secret thoughts.

I imagine it must

have been written in

haste with the late

shine of a red sun

streaming in.

Long, tapered fingers

must’ve held the pen

and, on the wall, the

shadow of a nimble
