Poetry. Women's Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. In this short chapbook of poetry, Megan Neville dances with ghosts; to be more specific, in 25 pages she closely waltzes with the spector-like memories in her family home before closing the door and leaving it all behind. RUST BELT LOVE SONG is a book about overcoming societal hauntings such as midwestern expectations and the restricting views of a mother. Neville captures intricate emotions with unflinching precision and effortlessly balances the fine line between familial love and cruelty.

What good is love if it does not see us? What good is a love song if it doesn't make us dance? Megan Neville's poems are unflinching in their observations of cruelty and tenderness alike. RUST BELT LOVE SONG is still music, and Neville is a worthy artist-stretching ordinary moments to show all of the wonder, pain, and yes, love that exists just under the surface.-JosÃ(c) Olivarez

What if: only the body of your beloved dog dies? your dog's spirit continues to exist nearby? your dog has plenty to say about the time he spent with you? Samson, an opinionated mixed breed pooch known for ignoring commands and demanding massages, recounts his life experiences to refined Golden Retriever pal Alfie when the two dogs reunite in a hazy realm somewhere in the hereafter. Carmen Ambrosio, author and art photographer, cedes the spotlight to her fickle muse and exasperated mutt motivator in this part memoir/part fictional tale. Candid photographs and insightful comments reveal the many endearing, eccentric quirks that make Samson a truly unforgettable dog.

Fozzie is an Old English Sheepdog with soft, fuzzy hair; bright, blue eyes; and a giant, black nose. He wants nothing more than to become part of the team pulling Santa's sleigh this Christmas. Fozzie's wish seems far-fetched until a brutally cold arctic air puts Santa's reindeer out of commission and forces the jolly old man in red to modify his method of transportation.

Santa's Shaggy Sheepdogs, a picture book for children, shares a fun holiday story with a magical twist.

Cryptic drawings, maps, strange symbols. This is what twelve-year-old Mike Hilliard discovers as he investigates the long-dead, ruthless millionaire Titus Morley.

After his death in an 1872 refinery explosion, Titus Morley's treasure trove of rare grimoires and ancient masks disappeared. Could the drawings and maps provide clues? Mike and Billy are determined to find out. But after rambling through a nearby cemetery at midnight, Mike's confidence is shaken, Billy is not the same, and a soul-stirring horror has been awakened. A fortune in missing books and masks. A long-dead millionaire who wanted out of his body and wanted to command the dead. Bodies missing from morgues and graves. What can these things possibly mean to a boy spending the summer with his uncle?
