Book Trailer Bonanza!

We have a host of great books coming out in October! Two of our authors have recently made book trailers which perfectly capture with pictures and music the joy, heartbreak and delight of their works.

Female friendships are some of the most powerful relationships in our lives. Yet sometimes we still find it hard to express our true feelings to the women closest to us. Whether it be fear, ego or circumstance that stand in the way, each of us has something we wish we could say to a friend, but haven't. In PS: What I Didn't Say, editor Megan McMorris gathers together a collection of unsent letters from various women writers to their female friends, representing a range of unspoken emotions. McMorris has put together a great video that will remind you of your best friend moments.

Set in 1970’s Southern California, Gringa: A Contradictory Girlhood is the true story of a young girl conflicted by two extremes. Forced to live with her father by a judge who deemed her lesbian mother’s lifestyle, “unnatural”, Hart was only allowed to visit her mother and her partner two weekends a month. During these short stays, she embraced the culture of her mother’s neighborhood, seeking solace in quesadillas, musicals, and her mother’s ramshackle VW bus. At her father’s house, she struggled with his hot temper, her inability to fit in, and the deep yearning for her mother.

Below Hart demonstrates the correct way to make a Frito Boat, an all time favorite at her mother's house.
