The new year brings with it some new reading selections.  I have just loaded some great reads by some wonderful writers to my Kindle.  Check  them out.  Of course, I’ll start with my own short story collection Trouble Down South and Other Stories.

Trouble Down South and Other Stories by Katrina Parker Williams–Enslavement, murder, abuse, illness: there’s real trouble for the characters in Trouble Down South and Other Stories. The short stories take the reader on a journey to the past through a collection of interestingly crafted pieces of flawed humanness, social injustice, and redemption, and even humor.  The short story collection of historical fiction chronicles events spanning more than 150 years and addresses a wide range of experiences from African-American perspectives. The stories are set in the South amid a changing landscape in which the characters are forced to wrestle with the social issues surrounding Native Americans, slavery, racism, Prohibition, World War I, the Korean War, Civil Rights, the Vietnam War, health, religion, mental illness, and education.

Another great read is by Saffina Desforges titled Sugar & Spice.  When you think the unthinkable, where do you turn?  Sugar & Spice is the UK #1 best-selling, controversial psycho-sexual (FULL-LENGTH) crime thriller the agents called “the last taboo“.  Based on research and details from the case of Robert Black, a UK serial killer, Sugar & Spice was deemed  “Too controversial for the British market.”  100,000 + readers thought otherwise.   Sugar & Spice is now one of the biggest-selling e-books in the UK of 2011.  It has also just been voted as a ‘Red Adept Reviews’ 2011 indie award winner for mystery!

Check out Melissa Foster’s Chasing Amanda. 

Nine years ago, Molly Tanner witnessed a young girl’s abduction in the busy city of Philadelphia, shifting her occasional clairvoyance into overdrive. Two days later, the girl’s body was found, and Molly’s life fell apart. Consumed by guilt for not acting upon her visions, and on the brink of losing her family, Molly escaped the torturous reminders in the city, fleeing to the safety of the close-knit rural community of Boyds, Maryland.  Molly’s life is back on track, her son has begun college, and she and her husband have finally rekindled their relationship. Their fresh start is shattered when a seven-year-old girl disappears from a local park near Molly’s home. Unable to turn her back on another child and troubled by memories of the past, Molly sets out to find her, jeopardizing the marriage she’d fought so hard to hold together. While unearthing clues and struggling to decipher her visions, Molly discovers another side of Boyds, where the residents–and the land itself–hold potentially lethal secrets, and exposes another side of her husband, one that threatens to tear them apart.
