Security by Gina Wohlsdorf
On Sale June 7, 2016

Grand Hotel meets Psycho in the age of surveillance: Gina Wohlsdorf’s Security is cinematically vivid, crisply written, and sharp enough to cut . . . Wohlsdorf subverts our expectations of the action genre in this smart, shocking, poignant thriller.” —Emily Croy Barker, author of The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic

As Good as Gone by Larry Watson
On Sale June 21, 2016

We Love You, Charlie Freeman by Kaitlyn Greenidge
On Sale March 8, 2016

“Kaitlyn Greenidge’s debut novel reminds us that it is an exciting time to be reading fiction. We Love You, Charlie Freeman is a masterful meditation on race, anthropology, history, and the hurly-burly complications of family. Greenidge’s prose is incisive, clever, resounding with a deep intelligence.” —Bill Cheng, author of Southern Cross the Dog

Welcome Thieves by Sean Beaudoin
On Sale March 1, 2016

“A deviously spellbinding collection of short stories in which strange and beautiful worlds, creations of Sean Beaudoin’s dark and sometimes brutal imagination, emerge as part of a tapestry so finely woven that we don’t see the thread. In the end, we can only stand in awe of Beaudoin's immense talent.” —Garth Stein, author of A Sudden Light

Chasing the North Star by Robert Morgan
On Sale April 5, 2016

On a moonless night in the spring of 1851, a young slave makes a bid for freedom with only the North Star to guide him. Bestselling novelist and historian Robert Morgan returns with a stunning new work of historical fiction.

The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church
On Sale May 3, 2016

“Oh, what an incandescent debut! . . . Church follows one extraordinary woman who is brave enough to challenge the times, take defiant wing, and chart her own extraordinary flight path . . . I never wanted the story to end.” —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You
