"A Paw Print On My Heart" by Terrill Godrich, published by Dancing Moon Press

A Paw Print On My Heart


Over the last four years since Bailey’s passing, I have pondered the depth and degree of my love for her. Is it because I was never a mother and therefore had an inordinate amount of love to devote to a dog? Or was it simply two souls connecting on an undefined level? Can a human being and an animal be “soul mates”? Some say that animals don’t have souls, and that they don’t go to heaven. That simply cannot be true. In my world, dogs — more than many humans — deserve a place in heaven. When you look into the eyes of a beloved pet, you can see their soul. Doesn’t a dog’s unconditional love and devotion feel like pure heaven itself? If dogs don’t go to heaven, then heaven is no place for me!

"When Dreams and Fear Collide" by Jan Warren

When Dreams And Fear Collide


The true story of rafting the Upper Yangtze River from the source, at 17,400 feet elevation in the great Himalayan glaciers, to the city of Yibin. The dream was to be the first expedition to travel the 2,000 miles of uncharted water. But the death of a teammate, a so-called mutiny, and several all-Chinese rafting teams racing ahead of the expedition in an attempt to be first, turn a perfect trip into a voyage of drama, disaster and unexpected challenges.

Fishing With Hyenas


FISHING WITH HYENAS is a love story between girlie girl Theresa and commercial fisherman Captain Bart, who convinces her to crew on a ninety-two-foot tuna boat plying the North Pacific Ocean. Trading cashmere and high heels for rain gear and rubber boots, she becomes a deckhand, confined for three months at a time, thousands of miles from anywhere. Bart’s tight group of fishermen—the Hyenas—become her extended family, but no one explains what appalling weather and hauling thousands of pounds of tuna would do to her hands. Or to her heart. Or to her mind.

"Good Grief" by Bobbie Lippman

Good Grief


Grieving people have the right to do whatever feels comforting at the time, no matter how bizarre or quirky, and no one—absolutely no one—has the right to tell a grieving person to “Get over it already!

"Guerrilla Priest" by Stephen Griffiths

Guerrilla Priest: An American Family in World War II Philippines


“Guerrilla Priest” is based on the memoirs my parents wrote of their experiences in the Philippines in World War II. At the beginning of World War II, Al Griffiths was priest-in-charge of St. Paul’s Mission in Balbalasang, Kalinga, the Episcopal Church’s most isolated mission. With the support of Chief Puyao, Griffiths helped organize the first guerrilla resistance to the Japanese in northern Luzon. When the Japanese threatened to execute him, Griffiths and his family spent a year and a half hiding in the forest, but were captured in March 1943 and interned in Camp Holmes, then at the Bilibid Prison in Manila. General MacArthur’s 37th Infantry liberated them in February 1945.

"Flower and Tree" by Sharon Rose

Flower and Tree


“Why did you do this to us? Why take dying and dead minds and force them on unwilling and random people?” Her voice did not raise, but the few physical items in the room began to shake, and the air took on a distinct smell of sulphur. “Why not just let us live normal lives? Why burden us with this?” Suddenly, the small chamber felt crowded as the rest of the twelve Pseudo-Reincarnated young men and woman appeared behind Cojiñí. So… she would need backup, perhaps?

Mostly True Stories And Other Lies


“The mostly true stories in the first section of this book are reasonably accurate, although in several cases the truth has been rubber-banded. Interspersed are short stories composed entirely of lies. Plus, I’ve sprinkled in a few poems because poetry slows us down, forcing us to take time to ponder. Pondering seems to be in short supply these days.”
