The novel is set in the era of print publishing's decline, as the recession rages on, the Internet continues to cannibalize business, and even the biggest titles are at risk of folding.View Details »
The staff of Hers magazine is in for a shock: After months of flagging sales and the increasing ire of the VIPs in the corporate suite, the magazine’s beloved Editor in Chief gets the pink slip, and a notoriously tough editor swoops in to fill the publication’s top spot… and then the massacre begins. The new boss has big plans to overhaul the magazine—to infuse its pages with more celebs, scandal, and smut—and it’s no secret that she plans to overhaul Hers’ staff, too.
The drama of PRETTY IN INK unfolds over the course of one very heated summer, in chapters narrated by a range of distinct voices: a well-respected executive editor who’s also the mom of triplets, a photo editor secretly dating her boss, a backstabbing web manager gunning for a promotion, a beauty editor gaming the system for her own private ends, a new assistant beloved by the boss and pitied by everyone else, among others. As the Hers staffers battle it out to hang onto their jobs, all their fears and anxieties, their hopes and vulnerabilities play out on the stage of the Hers workplace. They gossip and betray, and then occasionally surprise themselves and each other with an act of tender grace. By Labor Day, not only has the masthead of Hers changed dramatically, so have the staffers whose names appear there.
Publishers Weekly says of PRETTY IN INK, “Filled with juicy gossip and outrageous office politics…a dishy, catty book, that’s… an indulgent roll in the mud. Palmer writes this side of womanhood brilliantly.” Booklist says, “A lighthearted gambol through the ever-changing world of women’s magazine publishing, former magazine editor Palmer’s debut contains the authenticity of experience and the salacious story snippets fans of The Devil Wears Prada (2003) will appreciate… With different chapters devoted to different POVs, the politics of the magazine industry find full display in this deliciously delectable read.”

"Cave Dreams" is available in print and Kindle versions on Amazon.com.
Aldo is the last living consort of a goddess worshiped when humankind believed god was a woman, and sex was holy. After thousands of years of hiding in the wild mountains of Corsica, his clan died out, leaving him alone to face the terrifying and unknown modern world of today. Lenya, desperate to relieve her grief over the sudden death of her husband, joins a tour to the island. She is irresistibly drawn to its mysterious Neolithic past, standing stone warriors, dolmens, primeval ruins and a haunting voice compelling her to stay. After renting a cabin for a year, she realizes someone is leaving her presents,nosegays of flowers, baskets of fruit. Is she being stalked by danger?...or something else? And who is the barbaric looking and appealing man who comes to her rescue? Fascinated and seduced by the island's mysticism, spirituality and sensuality, Lenya faces a journey of self-discovery leading her from the cold sophistication of her world into the scorching heart of primal human beliefs, to a place where sex, love and worship converge.

Spring's Fall (Autumn Numbers, #1)

The story of one young man crossing the burning bridge between innocence and experience, Spring’s Fall is a narrative dramatic poem co…more[close] AUTOGRAPHED COPYView Details »
The story of one young man crossing the burning bridge between innocence and experience, Spring’s Fall is a narrative dramatic poem comprised of several stand-alone poems about fitting in and falling out, finding oneself and losing oneself, and discovering the meanings of life, love, and identity.
Readers will follow Sevin as he ambles around his hometown one last time, reminiscing about the moments that made him into the young man he’s become. He reimagines, not only his own thoughts and feelings, actions and words, but also those of the girls and women who made a significant mark on him.
Rejecting the “rules” of what contemporary poetry should be, Spring’s Fall is unapologetically unfashionable, written in the spirit of the complex-but-imperfect music many of us hear and sing to our insecure selves in adolescence.
If you’re expecting poetry falling in line with the current academic fashions, you’ll be sorely disappointed. What you’ll find here is a rebellious spirit running with and against the inevitable unfairness of life and love.
A poem very much out of its place and time, Spring’s Fall is not an easy read, but it’s not nearly as challenging as growing up.

It's a point of social contention, something that's different by definition, that's deeply subversive and proud of it.View Details »
Against Equality is an argument in support of those who dare to be different, a collection of essays that stand in stark contrast to an ever-growing LGBT mainstream working towards assimilation, and, arguably, cultural erasure. Never ones to shy away from a fight, the authors included in this timely collection address the trifecta of political rifts within the LGBT community: marriage, the military, and prisons.
"Equality" is a concept inextricably linked to positive social progress, but as the authors collected here suggest, it's a concept that often functions as a smoke screen to hide a world riddled with systemic injustice. Take marriage, for instance: is the right to marry whomever we want really a worthy goal for the queer community? What if this perceived "right" is actually a wrong? Against Equality suggests that seeking inclusion into a system that's based on institutional and economic exploitation is an unacceptable path forward.
How will the ability to fight in wars of imperialism help to liberate and empower LGBT people around the world? The striking down of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" only makes a larger population complicit in a system that treats queer bodies nationally and internationally as less than human. With contributions from Kate Bornstein, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, John D'Emilio, and others, this book is designed to stir debate [close]Giveaway dates: Feb 12 - Apr 09, 20145 copies available, 280 people requestingCountries available: US and CA

Leofwine, Ealdorman of the Hwicce, has proved himself in battle and won the support of his King, Aethelred II, but the spectre of Swein of Denmark, the man who partially blinded him five years before, has suddenly become a harrowing reality.
As the Viking raids intensify, conflict at the King's Witan and amongst his Councillors grows and Leofwine finds himself still treading a difficult path between loyalty and the twisted self-interests of the men the King surrounds himself with.
Can Leofwine weather more storms and grow his own power base, or will his King, once and for all, lose patience with his broken Ealdorman? [close]

Although Candida albicans is a part of the normal digestive system, an overgrowth of the fungus causes health issues ranging from fatigue and bloating to arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Now sufferers can cure themselves naturally using the simple diet program offered in Candida Cleanse.
Candida infections are responsible for a host of unpleasant and painful symptoms. But with the Candida Cleanse, it takes as little as 21 days to reclaim vitality without resorting to risky measures like colonics and liquid diets. The secret to this simple and delicious regimen is to eliminate foods that the fungus thrives on.
This easy-to-follow program helps readers feel better right away and also guides them on staying healthy. The three-phase approach starts with the 21-day cleanse, which kills the fungus and leaves the reader feeling great. In phase two, the yeast continues to starve as one transitions back to a regular diet. Phase three gradually reintroduces favorite foods in a way that keeps the fungus at bay for life.

Saer’s final novel, La Grande, is the grand culmination of his life’s work, bringing together themes and characters explored throughout his career, yet presenting them in a way that is beautifully unique, and a wonderful entry-point to his literary world.
Moving between past and present, La Grande centers around two related stories: that of Gutiérrez, his sudden departure from Argentina 30 years before, and his equally mysterious return; and that of “precisionism,” a literary movement founded by a rather dangerous fraud. Dozens of characters populate these storylines, including Nula, the wine salesman, ladies’ man, and part-time philosopher; Lucía, the woman he’s lusted after for years; and Tomatis, a journalist whom Saer fans have encountered many times before.
Written in Saer’s trademark style, this lyrically gorgeous book—which touches on politics, artistic beliefs, illicit love affairs, and everything else that makes up life—ends with one of the greatest lines in all of literature: “With the rain came the fall, and with the fall, the time of the wine.” [close]Giveaway dates: Mar 10 - Mar 24, 201415 copies available, 280 people requestingCountries available: US, CA, and GB

Who doesn't love a ghost story!
This is the second of three giveaways I will be hosting in honor of my new release.
A kiss. How life changing could it be? Love. Oh what tragic endings will it bring?
Never could Augusto have imagined that a simple stumble of another one would forever change his long, dull life. He’s a cursed man, one who’s left love to the meek minded and never grants it’s admission into his life. Nearly five hundred years ago he was killed and cursed for the sins of others, granting him immorality as a ghostly hybrid of a man and chained to an existence that could only end when he sheds the blood of his one true love.
Never has he known love, the warmness of a woman, the ecstasy of unfathomable yearning.
Then Jennifer materializes.
He knows he shouldn’t get close. Nothing could ever be real with her when he wasn’t tangible himself. He was a damned man, trapped in an ancient city where love has no place to call home and a past that will do anything to keep him alone and cursed forever.
A kiss though, oh what fools we are when entangled in a kiss. [close]Giveaway dates: Feb 20 - Mar 20, 20141 copy available, 279 people requestingCountries available: US

Throughout their five seasons on British television (and well into the troop’s movie sequels and assorted solo projects), Monty Python became a worldwide symbol not only for taking serious subjects and making them silly, but also for treating silly subjects seriously.
Monty Python provided a treasure trove of erudite “in” jokes, offering sly allusions to subjects as diverse as T.S. Elliot’s "Murder in the Cathedral" (as part of a commercial for a weight loss product) and how to conjugate Latin properly (as explained by a Roman centurion to a Jewish zealot painting anti-Roman graffiti on a wall). It was this combination of the uniquely highbrow but silly humor that inspired countless followers (Saturday Night Live, to name one). This hilarious and helpful guide puts Python's myriad references into context for the legion of fans, scholars, and pop culture aficionados that still strive to "get" Monty Python.

As the future prima, or head witch of her clan, Angela McAllister is expected to bond with her consort during her twenty-first year, thus ensuring that she will come into her full powers at the appointed time.
