Lookin’ Out For Leroy
Written by Janey H. Bailey

Written by former doctor, Janey H. Bailey, Lookin’ Out For Leroy takes teen and adult readers on a whirlwind adventure with two siblings, as they overcome adversity to thrive in a Caribbean band. Like millions of other children, Leroy lives with autism, a challenge that for him comes with an incredible musical ability. It is no wonder one critic recently wrote: “What a joy to find a book on a subject rarely tackled and written about with such knowledge.”

A Proclivity to Prurience
Written by Cheryl Butler

Reminiscent of Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita and Alyssa Nut- ting’s Tampa, A Proclivity to Prurience is a highly charged sexual fantasy where nothing is off limits. Having lost his mother at an early age, Joe accepts the friendship of Eddie, whose father died when he was eight.

Their bond convinced Eddie’s mother, Abbie, to save Joe from his abusive father. But Joe’s obsession with her soon begins, leading to the pursuit of indulgence. But obsession comes with a price... The story explores themes of violence, BDSM, sex and psychological trauma.
