The Sisters of Inishford by Jessica Monohan
At a time when two kingdoms battle for the fate of a kidnapped prince, sisters Eibhlin, Cassidy, and Brianna will forge their own destinies. Eibhlin is closer to her goal of riding into battle alongside an elite group of knights until her budding desire to have children gets in the way. Brianna is a hopeless romantic but also the victim of a terrible crime and she must learn how to get her hands dirty in order to combat her obsessive fears. Cassidy, who sneaks maps and reads accounts of battle, could be useful in the war effort if she can first prove she is just as capable as any of her father’s military advisors. Together, the sisters of Inishford will find their strength to rescue their kidnapped brother, return peace to the kingdom, and restore joy to their lives.
Out of My Mind by Mary Ellen Lisciandra
In her book Out of My Mind, author Mary Ellen Lisciandra delves into the whimsical realm of poetry. It is a compilation of poems that she wrote over the course of her life.
These poems deal with subjects ranging from sports to politics to world affairs. She started writing poems close to 50 years ago. Throughout the past five decades, she has witnessed many famous – and infamous – historical changes in American society. Among these events were the Vietnam War; the Energy Crisis of the Nixon era; and more recently, the BP oil disaster of 2010. She even includes a comical piece about her hometown baseball team – “The Amazing Mets” -- who miraculously won the World Series in 1969.
In addition to her collection of poems, Ms. Lisciandra reflects on her interest in history with a very thought-provoking essay on the battle of Gettysburg. She also displays her interest/love of animals with a short article about turtles.
There is something in her poems for everyone. Some are fantasies. Some are humorous. Some are satirical. Some are informative. But all the poems in this book definitely portray writings that come “out of the mind” of the author. Many of these poems mirror her personality, her beliefs, and her bizarre thinking. Her writing reflects her true inner feelings.
Out Of My Mind is an amazing read for everyone.
So sit back in a comfortable chair with your favorite beverage, and prepare to be entertained.

Punky and Grump In the Ceaseless Chase by R. M. Bonham
This is a lesson in reckless abandon.
This is a diagram of deceit,
Of wild revelry and drug-induced insanity.
This is a game of limbo between demons and angels, and who will fall first.
This is an exploration of the minds of warriors who had no clue they were in battle.
This is the story of fated friendship and redemption.
This is a spell riddled with Black Magick and spiders.
This is a front-row ticket to the Death of innocence.
This is the view from the veil lifted.
This is a direct manipulation of the Stars.
This is an ode to that unruly era of youth when our minds and hearts travel through the depths of chaos only to come out more alive and ready to set the world ablaze.
This is the tale of Punky and Grump.
