Justin is an immaculately conceived deity who roams the earth wreaking havoc as an adolescent. As his supernatural powers become catastrophic for the whole world, Cassie and Theodore must learn how to cope with the changes he has inflicted. Living as a vagrant on the streets, attempting to avoid the problems that come with millions of dollars sitting in his bank account, Theodore is suddenly thrust into a new-world leadership role, even after botching his own life early on. Abused by her drug addict mother then tossed from one foster home to the next, Cassie has been able to survive in a world that gobbles up little girls with a side of ranch dressing – but barely, and only after being miraculously revived after dying the first time.

Goodreads: Curse Me Not
Curse Me Not introduces southern Appalachian unsophisticate Elzetta Swan who’s recently been gifted with a rare ability considered very lucrative in her reality. She can see people’s auras and clean revenge curses off those auras. Even though the gift comes wrapped in premature menopause and ill-timed hot flashes, Elzetta embraces it faster than grass through a goose. She’s moved to what is to her the big city, and as the story opens, she’s about to finish her first year as a legally licensed bodywasher with a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank.
Suddenly a routine aura cleansing turns ugly. Elzetta suspects a powerful invoker has come to town-one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses. If that wasn’t bad enough, the invoker may be visiting at the invitation of a mysterious local with a malicious hard-on for revenge.
Well-intentioned but often out of her depth, Elzetta attempts to track down the culprits. In doing so, she faces deadly threats to both her trendy new life and the hallelujah hankering she’s formed for a reluctant urban white knight who’s crossed her path.

(The Journals of Meghan McDonnell)
Author: Meghan McDonnell
Publisher: Amazon Digital (Dec. 2015)
Genre: Biographical / Personal Observations
Goodreads: Meghan McDonnell
Minor is the first installment of the personal journals in which, for over 20 years, writer Meghan McDonnell has chronicled her life beginning at age eight through present day. With searing candor and tenderness, her musings on daily life and observations of family, social and romantic relationships coalesce in a commentary on growing up, facing down passion and fear, and American life in the 21st century. Wide in scope and vivid in detail, her journals are her confessional love letter to the world. Join her on a fearless, vulnerable, sometimes painful and quixotic, but always honest journey, also known as the human experience. Readers who love Cheryl Strayed or Karl Ove Knausgaard will enjoy this author.
Volume one spans her eighth year through age 17; reflections on family, friendship, education, a stint at survival camp and coming of age.
