USA Today Bestselling Author

We all need more joy and faith in our lives!

A beloved classic of children’s literature, Pollyanna, the best-selling 1913 story by Eleanor H. Porter, shows how orphaned child Pollyanna Whittier transforms an entire town for the better with her “glad game” — optimism, faith, and determination to look for the good in everything.

Yet the story is also so much more than that! If all you know of Pollyanna is the Disney film version or reading the book as a child, you may find reading it as an adult surprising. Pollyanna has so much to teach us about living a meaningful Christ-like life, growing spiritually, and experiencing deeper joy, the joy God created us to hold fast to and cherish.

Includes the full text of the original story, introduced by USA Today bestselling Christian romance author Autumn Macarthur. plus:

– discussion questions for book groups

– suggestions for playing Pollyanna’s “Glad Game”

– a Bible-based devotional for each chapter to dig deeper into the heart of the story

– personal journaling suggestions

“This series is a delightful blend of Firefly and Fantasy. The relationships between the crew are real, often funny, and nothing is wasted in building and developing the characters.” -Marla B.

Science to build a starship. Wizardry to take it past light speed. A crew to give it a soul.

The Mobius is a cobbled-together ship with a matching crew. Captain Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy pilot whose crew won’t let him fly his own ship. The pilot is his ex-wife, the mechanic is a drunk, and the chief of security is from a predatory species. Instead of a star-drive to travel through the astral space between worlds, the ship’s wizard does it by hand.

Mission 1: Salvage Trouble

A salvage mission turns into a rescue, and no good deed goes unpunished. With two refugees onboard, the Mobius crew is hounded by bounty hunters, border partols, and corporate enforcers.

Mission 2: A Smuggler’s Conscience

“Don’t open the package.” It’s the smuggler’s credo for good reason. When the Mobius crew takes a peek at their illicit cargo, the entire job takes an about-face.

Mission 3: Poets and Piracy

The Mobius crew gets caught in a turf war between a pirate fleet and a galactic criminal syndicate. The trick is getting everyone out alive (and maybe getting paid in the process).

Mission 4: To Err is Azrin

Sometimes you can’t go home again. When a job takes the crew to their security chief’s homeworld, she gets dragged into a familial power struggle. Can the rest of the crew bail her out of an old feud gone horribly wrong?

Bonus Short Story: Guardian of the Plundered Tomes

“Excellent short book on breaking the four minute mile, which encompasses American angle in race to do the seemingly impossible.” -Katherine

Sixty years ago, there was one great challenge remaining in world sport: the four-minute mile.

For decades other athletes had come close only to fail to quite crack the four-minute barrier. There were rumurs that it was impossible, and doctors and coaches had warned that people might die in the attempt. But three young graduates from Oxford and Cambridge would – in May 1954 – prove them wrong.

Amateurs and proud of it, they all had challenging careers and could only snatch 45 minutes in their lunch hour to train for this epic achievement. And yet they beat off top competition from around the world, including a well-financed team from the United States. When Roger Bannister, paced by Chris Brasher and Chris Chataway, raced across the finishing line in 3:59.4, it was a global media sensation – and a tonic to an austere, post-war Britain.

Their struggle to be the first to break this barrier is still an inspiration and provides a legacy for young athletes today. “My race became a symbol for taking on a challenge,” said Roger Bannister. “I like to look at this world record as a metaphor not only for sport, but for life and all of its challenges.”

Why was it that no one before had managed to break the magical 4 minute barrier?

And how did an amateur athlete from the UK manage to beat professional runners from around the world?

Based on new interviews with the main runner ‘Against the Clock: Running the 4 Minute Mile’ tells the story of Roger Bannister’s struggle, his team-mates, his opponents and his ultimate victory as the world watched him break the seemingly unattainable 4-minute mile.

“Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!” – New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely

NY Times, USA Today, Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing–and maybe having a few too many drinks–on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden–the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

4 short mystery stories with ghosts.

Zach’s Guitar

Grace Abrahams helps ghosts who can’t move on until their problems have been solved. The ghosts she meets are attached to items found at storage locker auctions.

Grace is confronted by the ghost of Zach Struthers who was in a boy band in the 1980s. He needs Grace’s help with writing his last song which he intends to give to his former friend and band mate, Ken Dryden.

This seems simple enough, but Grace runs into one obstacle after another. And it doesn’t help when Ken Dryden launches a vicious attack on her.

Painted Lies

Grace is faced with a difficult case this time as she can’t see the ghost who now needs her help. The ghost communicates by causing figures in paintings to move. Grace studies the paintings, and the pieces of the puzzle slowly come together.

When Grace works out why the ghost needs help, she’s furious and has to take drastic action.

Dead Wrong

Vince is the ghost of a young man who is attached to a coffin. He’s confused when he appears to Grace, and can’t remember the details of his life, although he does recognise the coffin. He jokes that he might be a vampire.

His joke turns sour when his personality abruptly changes and he’s transformed into a nastier version of himself. And this version is intent on causing Grace harm.

The Last Post

The day that Grace feared finally arrives; the day when she meets a ghost she knows.

The ghost is Roz. She’s a postwoman who’s been delivering post to Grace’s shop for years, and even knew Grace’s late parents.

Once Roz gets over the shock of being dead, she tells Grace what her unfinished business is. Roz delivered post to an old lady called Olive, and Olive is in trouble and needs urgent help.

Grace doesn’t hesitate to help and is soon deep into her investigation. Things take an unexpected twist when an attempted murder is revealed. The would-be murderer won’t rest until they claim their victim.
