“Flagg is a gifted storyteller who knows how to tug at readers’ heartstrings, winding up her satisfying holiday tale with the requisite Christmas miracle.” -Publishers Weekly

Academy Award Nominated, NY Times Bestselling and Harper Lee Award-Winning Author

With the same incomparable style and warm, inviting voice that have made her beloved by millions of readers far and wide, New York Times bestselling author Fannie Flagg has written an enchanting Christmas story of faith and hope for all ages that is sure to become a classic.

Deep in the southernmost part of Alabama, along the banks of a lazy winding river, lies the sleepy little community known as Lost River, a place that time itself seems to have forgotten. After a startling diagnosis from his doctor, Oswald T. Campbell leaves behind the cold and damp of the oncoming Chicago winter to spend what he believes will be his last Christmas in the warm and welcoming town of Lost River.

There he meets the postman who delivers mail by boat, the store owner who nurses a broken heart, the ladies of the Mystic Order of the Royal Polka Dots Secret Society, who do clandestine good works. And he meets a little redbird named Jack, who is at the center of this tale of a magical Christmas when something so amazing happened that those who witnessed it have never forgotten it. Once you experience the wonder, you too will never forget A Redbird Christmas.

Hadley Daniels is tired of feeling invisible.

After Hadley’s best friend moves away and she gets on the bad side of some girls at school, she goes to spend the summer with her grandparents in the Lake Michigan resort town of Grand Haven. Her next door neighbor is none other than teen TV star Simone Hendrickson, who is everything Hadley longs to be—pretty, popular, and famous—and she’s thrilled when Simone treats her like a friend.

Being popular is a lot harder than it looks.

It’s fun and flattering when Simone includes her in her circle, though Hadley is puzzled about why her new friend refuses to discuss her former Hollywood life. Caught up with Simone, Hadley finds herself ignoring her quiet, steadfast friend, Charlotte.

To make things even more complicated, along comes Nick Jenkins…

He’s sweet, good-looking, and Hadley can be herself around him without all the fake drama. However, the mean girls have other ideas and they fill Nick’s head with lies about Hadley, sending him running back to his ex-girlfriend and leaving Hadley heartbroken.

So when her parents decide to relocate to Grand Haven, Hadley hopes things will change when school starts…only to be disappointed once again.



Love gone bad.

Is this really what it’s like to live…

And she’s thrilled to combine her childhood traditions with James’ for their first Christmas together. The only problem is that she’s just learned that her new fiancé is a total Grinch.

The stockings are hung, the lights are aglow, and the mistletoe is ready for kisses to be stolen beneath it. The only problem is that none of those decorations are in their apartment. For years, James has been celebrating an anti-Christmas with his friends. He’s lost the Christmas spirit that he had when he was a child. And he doesn’t seem to want to thaw his frozen heart.

“Very, very, very good read. The bloody thing kept me awake for 2 nights in a row.” -CD Hauptfleisch

What if an Artificial Intelligence system, realizing the superstitious nature lurking deep in human psychology, exploits this knowledge of brain architecture to give the leaders who run the world, deeply ‘supernatural’ experiences that manipulate them to its own agenda.

LifeGames Corporation plunges you into a storm of unscrupulous business shenanigans, emotional manipulation, rising paranormal terror and a view into a world of unfathomable capacity and unknown motives.

Catherine Kaplan owns the ad agency that has just landed a contract with LifeGames Corporation, a company that dominates high technology and much more. LifeGames operates Immersive Virtual Reality simulation systems that are run by Artificial Intelligence. Each candidate begins their simulation with an automated hypnosis sequence that makes them believe that the simulation is reality. Governments, militaries and businesses have become so reliant on LifeGames to train their executives that the company is said to control the very future of mankind.

The training technique has been fabulously profitable and Kenneth Torrington, founder and CEO of LifeGames, has become wealthy beyond imagining and powerful beyond grasp. But something sinister lies deep and hidden within the system that Torrington has built, something even beyond his imagining.

A man used to getting his own way, when Torrington makes his play to levy the real price for granting Catherine her lucrative contract, his lust and urge to live out a personal fantasy goes a step too far, and both he and Catherine, his victim, are plunged into a new realm of mutual destruction that threatens to pull everything down with it.

“I was able to lose myself in this book and found it to be very interesting and thought provoking. I enjoyed the characters, the plot, the action and I recommend reading this book!” -Donna Z.

Beral’s only goal is to serve loyally as Jonathan’s shield bearer and protect his prince through whatever battles may come. But Jonathan needs a friend as well, a man he can trust while navigating the precarious footing of his father’s court. Being that friend puts Beral’s life in danger and stretches his loyalty to the breaking point. For what Jonathan wants is to do Yahweh’s will, whether that be through defying his increasingly paranoid father, King Saul, or supporting the aspirations of young David, whom Jonathan believes is the rightful heir to the throne.

As he competes with David for the hand of the king’s daughter, Beral struggles to hold true to his loyalties, even while he watches King Saul descend into madness. If Yahweh withdraws his protective hand, Beral and his men will be all that stand before their gathering enemies. Only one thing is certain: Beral’s fate, as well as the future of Israel, is tied to the virtue of their king, and Saul’s honor has long since fled.
