    When Gomez Porter becomes a test subject in an experimental drug trial, he is asked to keep track of any strange experiences through a blog. What Gomez isn't ready for, is so many of his experiences suddenly seeming strange; the antiques dealer trying to buy his old tax papers, the phone-sex salesman who hounds him day and night, the super sexy research assistant who falls for him but is unable to express herself in terms outside the realm of science. But when one of the trial participants turns up dead and another goes missing, Gomez begins to fear for his life. No longer sure who he can trust and which of his experiences are real and which merely drug induced delusions, he decides it's time to go underground and work out a devious plan. Now, years later, his blogs have been recovered from a defunct server. "No Hope for Gomez!" by author Graham Parke, reveals for the first time what happened to Gomez as he takes us on a wild ride of discovery.

    Hold onto your sides as you wind your way through three decades of small town Central Florida, replete with quarreling townsfolk, a no-nonsense sheriff with a legendary ancestor, Cubano hit men, exotic dancers, a haunted house and a former Ziegfeld Follies girl who still high kicks at age 80. Stir in Dracula, a well-hung skunk and one nasty alligator named “Ol’ Clyde” and "A Dish Best Served Cold" by author David Carl Mielke has a recipe for laugh-out-loud mayhem.

    For Maggie Lamond Simone, sarcasm has always been a means of survival, and words, her weapon of choice. Her second-grade teacher worried about a child so flippant at such a tender age. Twenty years later, as a police officer escorted a drunk Simone away from the car she had just wrecked, she asked him to drop her not at home but at the bar where her friends waited. He didn’t laugh. Simone quit drinking the next day. When she finally came up for air a few years later, she was afraid that she wouldn’t be funny without the alcohol. But she had a startling revelation. She wasn’t funny in the first place. The world was. And she started writing about it. Fifteen years and countless words later, "From Beer to Maternity" addresses dating, marriage, pregnancy, motherhood and menopause with a caustic wit and a healthy disrespect for perfection.

    Will Holly and her friends find happiness?
