ISLANDERS by John BarlowAuthor John Barlow is pleased to announce the release of his new young adult action-adventure novel: ISLANDERS.

ISLANDERS is a full-length novel for mid-graders and young adults. Set in a post-war dystopia, it follows thirteen-year-old Ben Brewer as he goes in search of his dad.

Thirteen years ago the Mainland was torn apart by war and contaminated by biological weapons. Ben’s parents–leaders of the Resistance–moved all their friends and comrades to the safety of an island. Then his dad went back, never to return.

When news arrives that Ben’s dad might not be dead, Ben sets out on a journey through a mutant-infested industrial wasteland to find him.

Carolyn Steele Announces New Release

Author Carolyn Steele is pleased to announce the release of her new travelogue: Trucking in English.

Almost Ice Road Truckers, except for the tulip bulbs…this is the tale of what happens when a middle-aged mum from England decides to actually drive 18-wheelers across North America instead of just dreaming about it. From early training (when it becomes apparent that negotiating 18 wheels and 13 gears involves slightly more than just learning how to climb in) this rookie overcomes self-doubt, infuriating companions and inconsiderate weather to become a real trucker. Nothing goes well, but that’s why there’s a book.

Trucking in English was released on November 18, 2012 and is available through, Amazon UK, and Smashwords.
