Waves of Hope“Waves of Hope”
by Judith Keim       

Hope and determination can bring results …

Elle’s three granddaughters -- Charlotte Bradford, Olivia Winters, and Brooke Weatherby -- are all at a point where they have the time to do as she asks.  When Shane Ensley is sailing with Charlotte and another “cove kid,” Eric Simon, the boom knocks him into the water unconscious. When Charlotte rescues him, it changes everything for them -- and starts the summer exactly as the grandmothers had hoped.

Bit Flip“Bit Flip”
by Mike Trigg  

Combining the corporate intrigue of Joseph Finder, the satirical cultural critique of Dave Eggers, and the domestic drama of Laura Dave, “Bit Flip” is a fast-paced contemporary thriller that delivers an authentic insider’s view of the corrupting influences of greed, entitlement, and vanity in technology start-ups.  

Tech executive Sam Hughes came to Silicon Valley to “make the world a better place.” But when an onstage meltdown sends him into a professional tailspin, he suddenly sees the culture of the Bay Area’s tech bubble in a new light.

Just as Sam’s wondering if his career and marriage might be over at fortysomething, an inadvertent discovery pulls him back into his former company, where he unravels insidious schemes that threaten to destroy the company and his own moral compass.

There Will Be Lobster“There Will Be Lobster”
by Sara Arnell    

You know her. You’ve seen her. You may even see yourself in her. If you’re arriving to the midlife crisis party -- the one that’s serving low self-esteem, desperation, unreliable behavior, forgetfulness, carelessness and the loneliness of loss -- the stories and anecdotes in this memoir will assure you that you are not alone.  

For Sara Arnell, it took a rogue lobster, a dying rock star, an eighteen-pound tumor, a meditation guru, a famous medium and a former monk to put her on a path toward light, hope, and healing.  

“Sara Arnell is the only writer I know who can make self-depreciation and wisdom look like the same thing. This is a darkly funny memoir with a big heart,” says David Hollander, author of “Anthropica” and “L.I.E.”
