“It’s more energy-producing anticipation, smiling constantly, leading up to that happily-ever-after. It’s an extremely enjoyable read.” -Bonnie

Fourteen Days Later was short listed for the Harry Bowling Prize 2008 and received a Highly Commended by the Yeovil Literary Prize 2009. It is a romantic comedy with a unique infusion of British and Turkish Cypriot culture. Written in a similar style to Marian Keyes, it is My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Bridget Jones. When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend’s best work trousers, it’s time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse.

Helen’s life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question. The tasks are designed to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem but all they seem to do is push her closer to Ayshe’s brother, Kalem. How will Kalem and Helen get together when she’s too foolish to realize that she loves him? How can he fall for her when he is too busy falling prey to her mishaps and too in love with his own perfect girlfriend? How will Kalem’s Turkish Cypriot family react when they find out? Is it really possible to change your life in fourteen days?

“This book had me laughing out loud from the first page.” -K.A. Woods

Need a good laugh? Strangeville is a different kind of story that draws the reader in and keeps them wondering what will happen next. The story is a dark comedy about a suicidal young man named John Campbell who, after a failed suicide attempt, heads to Virginia to visit an aunt he hasn’t seen in ten years. But his rental car runs out of gas deep in the mountains. When he decides to walk in the middle of the night, he winds up in a town that is isolated from the rest of the world—Strangeville. Unable to leave, he meets an assortment of loveable oddball characters—the beautiful Delilah, Klemm Johnson, Clarissa Puddworthy, Biff Flannigan, Jeboriah Varmint, Cleetus McChoparooski, and others.

Lord Eldridge returns to London to reclaim the estate that had been stolen from him. He is determined on the ruination of the family that destroyed his, but his plans conflicts with his gentlemanly duties to the remaints of the Hessworth family, Amelia Hessworth and her ailing aunt. Amelia Hessworth’s willful pride and determination only increases the stakes as she refuses to accept a fate less than the one she wants. She won’t let circumstance or the arrogant man who’s come to through her out of her home stop her, even as she has little choice in the short term but to rely on support from the man who despises her. In fact, she learns to embrace the freedom outside of Society’s strict expectations. To say they don’t get on is an understatement, but circumstances can be cruel.

The Ptorrigan Lode
by Kathryn Lance
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Genre: Science Fiction Short Story
Price: $0.00 Save $2.99
Subject to change back to full price at any time.

 

Somewhere in the asteroid belt, at an outpost called Onstation, The Corporation controls all. Its female employees are required to drape themselves in the modest Muslim garment, the chador. And two brothers—Jay, a musician, and Von, The Corporation’s OnStation Director—are rivals for the love of one woman. This is the premise for The Ptorrigan Lode, a worthy successor to Kathryn Lance’s 1980s cult classic Pandora’s Genes. Jay, the musician, is addicted to chappa, a drug, associated with a now-extinct civilization, that increases creativity—among other things. Like most addictive substances, chappa eventually destroys those with a dependence on it.

Jay will die without his chappa fix, but The Corporation has made chappa illegal. Von offers him a way to get all the chappa he might ever need, and get his life back in the process, but there’s a catch. More than one. The Ptorrigan Lode keeps you at the edge of your seat and keeps you guessing all the while. It’s a quick read, but a satisfying one, that will nevertheless leave you hungry for more. In that case, I can recommend Lance’s earlier works, which are eerily relevant to much going on in our culture today.
