The Straight Spouse: A Memoir is a love story about a woman who is married to a man who turns out to be gay—and how she deals with it in unexpected ways. This story takes place in the early 1990s, and she believes she is the only woman in the world to face this unthinkable threat to her marriage. Her journey—sometimes disturbing, sometimes uplifting—is all about the importance of letting go and finding one’s own way through hard times.
Despite what people might expect, this is not a gay-bashing book. In fact, quite the opposite. Author Vivian Fransen shares this painful chapter in her life to create a courageous memoir worth reading. We are proud to make it our Pick of the Month.

Soul Search is a very different kind of supernatural story, and thus our Book Pick of the Month for April.
The spirits of the dead are like drowning people. They have no intent to do harm, but once they notice people like Fia, they latch on and in their panic and desperation, drag them under. Fia is a young woman in deep trouble, but the world thinks she owns the deluxe edition of crazy. To have any chance at a normal life, she needs a new start. Convinced that the woods are empty and safe, she signs on as a wilderness search and rescue volunteer. Bad assumption. Big mistake.
When Fia witnesses a psychopomp leading a dead boy through a portal to the afterlife, she is frantic to learn the secret of how to free herself from the dead. Can she overcome her necrophobia and serve the Guardian of the Dead?
Soul Search is available on Amazon.
Our March Book Pick is The Pharm House, a foreboding and darkly suspenseful debut medical thriller by Bill Powers set in the hidden underworld of the global pharmaceutical business. Even though The Pharm House is set in a pharmaceutical company, it is really a story about family. It’s about Nicholas Harding, a young scientist/executive at Marshall Pharmaceutical. Nicholas is a regular guy – a single Dad trying to raise a precocious 11-year-old daughter while clawing his way up that ever so slippery middle management ladder. But unknown to Nicholas, there are dark forces inside Marshall Pharmaceutical and he is about to be drawn into their plans and finds himself fighting for his career, his family and perhaps even his life.
