Featured Book - Bully by Emme Dun
This fast-paced legal thriller begins at the height of the 1980s AIDS epidemic, when gay and lesbian parents, including Joanna Crawford's father, were routinely stripped of their parental rights because of the AIDS hysteria and laws that treated gay parents as second class citizens. By 2008, Joanna Crawford, now an elected family court judge in Central City, Ohio, is in a position to atone for past sins and push forward the LGBT cause. Judge Crawford breaks with the past by issuing a series of pivotal child custody decisions granting shared custody rights to non parents scorned by their ex lovers. Single mothers, Wendy White, a lesbian, and Jennifer Dolan, a widow, must fight the very court established to protect "the best interest of the child" in order to do what's best for their children in this engaging story of heartache, murder, love and redemption.

Featured Book - Balls: A Tale of Radical Feminism and a Girl by Simon Plaster
BALLS tells a satirical tale of feminist revolution sweeping down the plain to uproot an Oklahoma Institute of Correctology (OIC):
* OIC's new Dean, Ester Frigg, charged with overseeing the institute's admission of women, is confronted by various challenges, including those posed by radical feminist "Ballsheviks" led by G.G. Carpenter, editor of an online
news site, Femischismo!
* Veteran journalist, Shatner Lapp, intent on reclaiming the civil rights victimhood narrative for oppressed African-American men, embeds himself in OIC; and ends up in the dock of a kangaroo court mandated by Title IX administrators in Washington.
* Other males, including OIC football coach, Buster Downs, and aspiring gridiron hero, Leon Corn, also run afoul strict new bureaucratic rules and loose definitions of sexual assault aimed at reining in the campus rape epidemic said to victimize 1 out of 5 women in college.
And Henryetta "Somebody," small town news reporter, again finds herself in the middle of a big national story.
