MILKMAN by Anna Burns
Winner of the 2018 Man Booker Prize
Feature profile in the New York Times
Three starred reviews
A middle sister in an unnamed city juggles everyday life as a young woman and the danger of living in a totalitarian society. “A deeply stirring, unforgettable novel that feels like a once-in-a-generation event.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

OF BLOOD AND BONE: Chronicles of The One, Book 2 by Nora Roberts 
December 2018 Indie Next Pick
Nora Roberts, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the epic YEAR ONE returns with a new tale of terror and magic in a brand new world. “The follow up to YEAR ONE takes a jump into the future, grabbing readers with epic world- and character-building.”–Library Journal

THE SONGBIRD by Marcia Willett 
From the beloved author of A WEEK IN WINTER and THE SEA GARDEN comes a heartwarming novel about family, yearning, and whether love can bloom where old secrets are buried. “Weaving multiple story lines through seamless interactions, Willett (SUMMER ON THE RIVER, 2018) creates real people facing real problems and in so doing immerses readers in a world that is familiar and comforting.”

A nuanced satire–both hilarious and disconcerting–that probes the blurred lines between empowerment, spirituality, and consumerism in our online lives. “Selecky’s deadpan tone, punchy writing, and vivid characters transport readers to a specific, highly diverting world that hits close to the bone and sparks the self-reflection it’s spoofing.”–Booklist

DEEP WAR: The War with China–The Nuclear Precipice: Dan Lenson Novels (Volume 18) by David Poyer 
The war against China turns dire, as the United States struggles to survive in this gripping thriller featuring Navy commander Dan Lenson. “Fans can count on Poyer’s naval battles to be superb, but it’s the scenes of land combat…that will burn their way into readers’ imaginations. Poyer is at the top of his game in this all-too-plausible future war scenario.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
