Artemis – Andy Weir

The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon. Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich. Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time. So when a ...

Once Upon A Broken Dream – Natalie J. Case

Dragons, magic, fairies, angels, vampires, knights, a gollum, a vengeful child’s toy, a depressed cashier, a bridge made of stars, and a donkey… What do they all have in common? An appearance in this anthology. This collection of short stories is as diverse as the Creativia authors who wrote them. Travel to Victorian London, an otherworldly slave market, a faraway planet, a quaint English town and other wondrous places in the pages of Once Upon a Broken Dream.

Can fathers and husbands get out of their own way? Is it possible to survive the curse of infants, teenagers and relationship-stupidity? To get around the “Shoeman Curse”, Dusty Shoeman, a quiet, hardworking man, closet-writes his way to sanity—until he is discovered. But what happens when your dramatic book about a grieving, single mother gains serious attention? Will your kids think you’re an idiot? What will your relentlessly-teasing coworkers say when they find out you’ve written a sappy, for-women, page-turner? Will your wife support you, ...

It’s All Relative – A. J. Jacobs

New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically, A.J. Jacobs undergoes a hilarious, heartfelt quest to understand what constitutes family—where it begins and how far it goes—and attempts to untangle the true meaning of the “Family of Humankind.” A.J. Jacobs has received some strange emails over the years, but this note was perhaps the strangest: “You don’t know me, but I’m your eighth cousin. And we have over 80,000 relatives of yours in our database.” That’s enough family members to fill Madison Square ...

Forbidden City – A.J. Gallant

A magnificent, muscled specimen weaned on swords and sorcery is making his way through the desert. But this is no ordinary wasteland: scorpions the size of horses and giant 36-foot snakes are ready to strike from the sands at any time. This place shows an unwary traveler no mercy… and Braeden is ready for it. Meanwhile Azalea, a warrior as beautiful as Braeden is handsome, makes her way across the desert and comes across a small village. The Red Dragon tattooed on her signifies that ...
