HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Twenty-two years of serving this community has flown by in a blink, and left us looking forward to the next many years. Thank you for supporting your local indie, so we can support authors, serve you, and help connect authors and readers.

Naturally, we're celebrating with great food and fabulous authors! Award-winning Carol Cassella offers an early release of her brand-new novel Gemini. Gregory Nokes' latest history, Breaking Chains was just chosen as a PNW Top Ten Book. Karen Spears Zacharias shares her sixth book, but first novel, journeying back to her Appalachian roots with Mother of Rain

Gemini is a medical mystery, a love story, and an exploration of family in all of its myriad definitions. A gripping fictional narrative that will spark conversations about the very real moral dilemmas we face in this age of medical miracles. Carol Cassella, M.D. is a practicing physician and national bestselling author of two novels, Oxygen and Healer. Both novels were Indie Next Picks and finalists for the Washington State Book Award in fiction, and have been translated into several languages. 

A former slave battles for his enslaved children, bringing his powerful ex-master to court in "free" Oregon territory, in the latest moving, well-researched release by Gregory Nokes. Breaking Chains: Slavery on Trial in the Oregon Territory was recently chosen as a Top Ten book in the Pacific Northwest for 2013. Nokes is also the author of Massacred for Gold: The Chinese in Hells Canyon.

Mother of Rain takes us to 1940s Appalachia, and a hardscrabble life in the mountains of East Tennessee–a world filled with the mystery of the “old ways,” where loss and tragedy are as commonplace as rain. In simple prose, this haunting debut preserves the voices Zacharias knew from summers with her aunt and grandmother in Hawkins County, Tennessee. Karen Spears Zacharias has been featured on Good Morning America, Huffington Post, New York Times, USA Today, CNN and National Public Radio.
