It’s a story for our time, about how a man and a nation struggle to face diminishing prospects. It was named a semi-finalist in Black Balloon Publishing’s 2013 Horatio Nelson Fiction Prize.View Details »
WINDFALL takes place two weeks from today. Seth Tatton is a divorced, middle-of-the-pack attorney just keeping his head above water. But he has one advantage —he knows where the bodies are buried. That’s because Seth has been recruited into an ambitious cabal of politicians, billionaires and military leaders. And with the help of foreign provocateurs and domestic oil companies, they plan to divide the United States in half, and to found a new nation in the American West.
But even beyond his life of constant deception, things are not what they seem. That’s because Seth, even on his most solitary missions, is not alone. There is something inside of him has big plans for him, plans that it and others like it have nursed for thousands of years. But when everything is going smoothly for Seth and his conspirators, he falls for the troubled yoga instructor that he’s been hired to watch. And when she is destroyed by the man being groomed to lead the new country out west, Seth makes a difficult decision.
"WINDFALL is not your typical political thriller. Dodds deftly weaves in a solid paranormal thread that explores ambition, myth and morality in an indifferent America without resorting to pulpit thumping or cardboard villains."
-The New Podler Review of Books
“Smart people compliment the smart and direct narrative in a way that keeps a reader… eager to turn the page to discover the next big move from these compelling leads… (WINDFALL) could easily stand up against the more famous works of the genre.”
-Rabid Readers Reviews
Colin Dodds grew up in Massachusetts and completed his education in New York City. He is the author of several novels, including WINDFALL and The Last Bad Job, which the late Norman Mailer touted as showing “something that very few writers have; a species of inner talent that owes very little to other people.” His poetry has appeared in more than a hundred fifty publications, and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. The poet and songwriter David Berman (Silver Jews, Actual Air) said of Dodds’ poetry: “These are very good poems. For moments I could even feel the old feelings when I read them.” And his screenplay, Refreshment, was named a semi-finalist in the 2010 American Zoetrope Contest. Colin lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife Samantha. You can find more of his work at thecolindodds.com.

Losing her job and boyfriend in one drunken night, she’s determined to fix her life by going back to the moment when she let partying and sex take over and do things right. At twenty-nine, she heads back to freshman year of college, with a catch.
Pretending she's nineteen with a new roommate and full class schedule is easy. When she meets her shy, sexy and seven-years-younger RA Carter, following her self-imposed sobriety and celibacy rules is proving to be anything but.
A senior enduring years of regret, Carter is more than ready to graduate. He’s anxious to move on from the party his freshman year where he witnessed his frat brothers about to commit a sexual assault. Instead of doing the right thing and stepping in, he looked the other way and left. His guilt has made for a lonely four years.
When he meets the new freshman on his floor, spunky and confident Kate, he wonders if his time as an outcast has finally come to an end.
Kate and Carter’s growing friendship and undeniable attraction make it harder to hide the demons from their respective pasts.

When a ventilator prevented her from speaking during her final hours, Jennifer started writing. After her death, her husband turns to those pages to tell her story of courage and faith.
James had just walked through the door after a day’s work when Jennifer told him the news that changed everything: it was cancer.

Told through the eyes of a grieving husband is this true story of a young woman’s fight for her life. Jennifer’s final words, penned by hand when a ventilator prevented her from speaking, provide a powerful backdrop to this journey of faith and hope.
A memoir that also offers a practical pathway for those struggling with loss, The Last Seven Pages is a testimony of a God who is present in our darkest moments, and who turned a devastating illness into a life-changing promise.

Marshall.View Details »
This interpretive biography of George C. Marshall follows his life from his childhood in Western Pennsylvania and his military training at the Virginia Military Institute to his role during and after World War II and his death in 1959 at the age of seventy-eight. It brings to light the virtuous historical role models who inspired him, including George Washington and Robert E. Lee, and his relationships with the Washington political establishment, military brass, and foreign leaders, from Harry Truman to Chiang Kai Shek. It explores Marshall’s successes and failures during World War II, and his contributions through two critical years of the emerging Cold War—including the transformative Marshall Plan, which saved Western Europe from Soviet domination, and the failed attempt to unite China’s nationalists and communists.
Based on breathtaking research and filled with rich detail, George Marshall is sure to be hailed as the definitive work on one of the most influential figures in American history. [close]Giveaway dates: Aug 21 - Sep 21, 201425 copies available, 403 people requestingCountries available: US

Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Award–winning “Old Indian Trick.” This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnson’s bestselling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they can’t buy the stories in book form.
Wait for Signs collects those beloved stories—and one entirely new story, “Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns”—for the very first time in a single volume, regular trade hardcover. With glimpses of Walt’s past from the incident in “Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious “Messenger,” where the majority
of the action takes place in a Port-A-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fan’s shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

The demand was growing too quickly.
The beliefs of healers convinced of their supernatural medicinal properties fueled a thriving black market for the most grisly commodity to obtain--
the body parts of the colorless people.
After the murder and maiming of countless people afflicted with Albinism, the South African government realized that they had no choice but to intervene. Out of the desire to provide protection to even the poorest of the afflicted people, the Humane Harvest Compounds were established.
Fifteen years later, in a rapidly-changing post-Apartheid nation, two young women find themselves face-to-face with the walls that have surrounded them for as long as they can remember. Anytha (a bright, college-bound, young thinker) begins second-guessing her loyalty to her family's life-long faith--the Practice of Blue--a thriving new religion whose doctrine is based on the "Law of the Land."
Tabitha, (a sweet, quiet, conspiracy theorist with Albinism who was sold to the Humane Harvest Compounds as an infant) finds herself dreaming about an unharvested life outside of the concrete walls.
Though they are living two completely different lives, Anytha and Tabitha are both found questioning the motives of those in power--setting their minds to look beyond their spotless reputations, good deeds, and popularity--unaware that what they discover may make them question everything that they believe about life itself.
