Fall 2011 Late Additions from The sequel to Getting Sassy.

Getting Lucky DC Brod

When a young reporter is killed in a hit-and-run accident, freelance writer Robyn Guthrie agrees to finish one of the stories the reporter had been writing for the local newspaper. But nothing is as simple as it seems when she uncovers shady land deals, encounters an old high school nemesis, and attempts to fend off her aging mother's latest notion.

“Surprisingly intense characterization propels Brod’s likable sequel to Getting Sassy.” —Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

Immigration and murder in small-town America

El Gavilan Craig McDonald

The news is full of it: escalating tensions from illegal immigration, headless bodies hanging off bridges and bounties placed on lawmen on both sides of the border. New Austin, Ohio, is a town grappling with waves of undocumented workers who exert tremendous pressure on schools, police and city services. In the midst of the turmoil, three very different kinds of cops scramble to maintain control and impose order. But the rape-murder of a Mexican-American woman triggers a brutal chain of events that threatens to leave no survivors. El Gavilan is a novel of shifting alliances and whiplash switchbacks. Families are divided and careers and lives threatened. Friendships and ideals are tested and budding love affairs challenged. With its topical themes, shades-of-gray characters and dark canvas, El Gavilan is a novel for our charged times.

“As sobering and as urgent as tomorrow’s headlines, this searing novel traces the struggle of the residents of fictional New Austin, Ohio, to cope with out-of-control illegal Latino immigrants. McDonald deftly balances his ‘now’ against the ‘then’ backstory as he dissects one of America’s most tormenting social problems.”

Fall 2011 Late Additions from The seventh Moe Prager mystery.

Hurt Machine Reed Farrel Coleman

At a pre-wedding party for his daughter Sarah, Moe Prager is approached by his ex-wife and former PI partner Carmella Melendez. It seems Carmella’s estranged sister Alta has been murdered, but no one in New York City seems to care. Why? Alta, a FDNY EMT, and her partner had months earlier refused to give assistance to a dying man at a fancy downtown eatery. Moe decides to help Carmella as a means to distract himself from his own life-and-death struggle. Making headway on the case is no easy feat as no one, including Alta’s partner Maya Watson, wants to cooperate. Moe chips away until he discovers a cancer boiling just below the surface, a cancer whose symptoms include bureaucratic greed, sexual harassment, and blackmail. But is any of it connected to Alta’s brutal murder?

“Razor-edged contemporary whodunits don’t get much better than Shamus-winner Coleman’s seventh Moe Prager mystery.”

Now in paperback!

Innocent Monster Reed Farrel Coleman

Seven years have passed since the brutal murder that tore Moe Prager’s family apart and it’s been six years since Moe’s brushed the dust off his PI license. But when his estranged daughter Sarah comes to him with a request he cannot refuse, Moe takes a deep breath and plunges back into the icy, opaque waters of secrets and lies. Sashi Bluntstone, an eleven-year-old art prodigy and daughter of Sarah’s dearest childhood friend, has been abducted. Three weeks into the investigation, the cops have gotten nowhere and the parents have gotten desperate. Desperation, the door through which Moe Prager always enters, swings wide open. Just as in Sashi’s paintings, there’s much more to the case than one can see at a glance.

Ships: December Publication: January Mystery, Trade Paperback 6 x 9, 288 pages $15.95 (Canada $16.99) Rights: North American English Rights ISBN 10: 1-4405-3609-0 ISBN 13: 978-1-4405-3609-0 EAN: 9-78144053609-0 UPC: 0-4507953609-8

With the help of an ex-football star, Moe stumbles around the fringes of the New York art scene, trying to get a handle on where the art stops and the commerce begins. Much to Moe’s surprise and disgust, he discovers that Sashi is, on the one hand, revered as a cash cow and, on the other, reviled as a fraud and a joke. Suspects abound beyond the usual predators and pedophiles, for it is those closest to Sashi in life who have the most to gain from her death.

“This sixth Moe Prager novel is pretty much note-perfect. Coleman’s take on the art world as a den of iniquity is priceless, as is Moe himself— intelligent, street smart, and tough, especially for a sixtysomething. He’s also sophisticated, despite seeing himself as a ‘poor schmuck from Brooklyn.’ He’s a mensch, and his bone-deep world weariness and mordant sense of humor should enthrall lovers of old-school, toughtalking, loner private eyes (think Loren D. Estleman’s Amos Walker).” —Booklist, starred review FWMedia.com/catalog

But eating a whole-food diet can—whole foods decrease inflammation, prevent disease, and increase energy, all without excess sugar, fat, and artificial additives. Minimally processed foods like fresh produce, lean meats and seafood, and whole grains are packed with both nutrients and flavor. From easy weeknight meals to indulgent special-occasion treats, the recipes in The Everything® Whole Foods Cookbook will give readers the confidence they need to start cooking with whole foods every day.

Renegades

My Wild Trip from Professor to New Journalist with Outrageous Visits from Clint Eastwood, Reggie Jackson, Larry Flynt, and Other American Icons Robert Ward with an Introduction by Roy Blount Jr.

Throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, author Robert Ward lived a whirlwind life. After publishing Shedding Skin in 1972, a novel that won a National Endowment for the Arts Award and that Publishers Weekly called, ““The quintessential hippie ’60s novel,” Robert Ward decided to give journalism a try. What followed were two decades of assignments for New Times, GQ, SPORT, Rolling Stone, and other publications, covering the biggest stars of the sporting, music, art, and film worlds. This collection includes Ward’s celebrated story on Reggie Jackson that nearly tore the New York Yankees apart (and was later brought to life in an ESPN mini-series The Bronx is Burning), a profile of the “outlaw” country music movement of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, and David Allan Coe, and an insightful feature on Hustler publisher Larry Flynt as a young pornographer that almost cost Ward his life. Also included are essays about the former premier of Vietnam Nguyen Cao Ky trying to adjust to life in California; an aging Lee Marvin dealing with the survivor’s guilt from his time in World War II; an unsigned Bruce Springsteen playing his legendary showcase show; and profiles of Dr. J, LeRoy Nieman, Richard Pryor, Robert Mitchum, Tom Waits, and a variety of fringe characters on the American scene.

A Harry Stein soft-boiled murder mystery • Second book in the Harry Stein Soft-Boiled Murder Mystery series • The first book in the series, Stein, Stoned was a 2010 Best of the Year

staff pick at The Poisoned Pen

• “Just when you thought you’d seen everything in detective fiction,

along comes PI Harry Stein, a shambling, abstaining dope connoisseur, trying to make a living and be a good father against the oddest of odds. This book is so funny, surprising, and compelling that, dare I say it, it practically gets you high.” —John Lithgow (on Stein, Stoned) • “Harry fits comfortably into that delightfully comic line of slacker

sleuths—a tradition that runs from the Fletch novels through Newton Thornburg’s . . . Cutter and Bone and, of course, The Big Lebowski ” —Booklist (on Stein, Stoned)

Stein, Stung Hal Ackerman

Last time it was stolen weed and knockoff designer shampoo. This time it is the seemingly trivial occurrence of a few pilfered honeybee colonies that propel former hippie and merry prankster, Harry Stein into the multi-trillion dollar world of the honeybee industry. In the presence of six trillion bees to pollinate millions of acres of almond trees, Stein, who is deathly allergic to bee stings, discovers the natural catastrophe of colony collapse, and a corrupt grab by organized AGROBIZ for all of the available water in Southern California. In his absence, Harry’s daughter Angie and Lila’s very attractive 17 year-old stepson find an elephant tusk that has seeped into Lila’s pool from the la Brea tar pits. When the rest of the skeleton emerges, it turns out not to be the prehistoric mammoth they’d hoped it would be, but a human being who just might have been murdered in the 1920s. The perpetrator of the 80 year-old murder is still alive and the most powerful man in Los Angeles will do anything necessary to keep the secret hidden.

A Loon Lake mystery • The twelfth book in the popular Loon Lake mystery series • Victoria Houston and the Look Lake series were previously featured

in the Wall Street Journal • “Houston does an outstanding job of crafting a good plot and

entangling her rural protagonists in real-life situations. Fans of . . . regional mysteries will want to read.” —Library Journal

Dead Tease Victoria Houston

A hot August afternoon and Midwest Clinic CEO John McNeil has been working late. Working on his latest conquest, that is. Jen Williams is twenty-six, in charge of graphics for the hospital’s PR division—and quite attractive in a healthy, athletic kind of way. She is quick to laugh and a little too quick to fall for guys. She is no virgin. And she is one of three women—including his wife—intimately familiar with McNeil. When Jen’s youthful body is found with a single stab wound through the heart, suspicion falls on both McNeil’s wife, who insists she is being stalked, and the striking hospital physician with whom he had just ended an affair. Pressure to find the killer falls on Loon Lake Police Chief Lewellyn “Lew” Ferris and Dr. Paul “Doc” Osborne, the retired dentist and forensic dental expert whom she has deputized to help with the investigation—when they are not taking a break for fishing and other personal pursuits. When the Mayor demands Lew take early retirement and Doc has to babysit his teenage granddaughter who won’t stop texting, the frustrations mount.

A novel of the Civil War at sea • The third book in the Civil War at Sea trilogy • “In the exciting first of a projected trilogy featuring real-life

Confederate naval hero Cmdr. Rafael Semmes, mystery author Peffer (Old School Bones) spends as much time ashore as at sea . . .” Publishers Weekly on book one in the trilogy, Southern Seahawk • “Peffer paints a convincing portrait of the destruction and desperation

felt on both sides and of the many small, heroic actions (or inactions) that might turn the tide of war.” Publishers Weekly on book two, Seahawk Hunting • “Peffer bases his tale on well-researched facts, brought to life by his

novelist’s imagination.”—SAIL magazine

Seahawk Burning Randall Peffer

This final volume in the Raphael Semmes Trilogy of Civil War Naval Thrillers, Seahawk Burning follows the real-life adventures of Confederate Captain Raphael Semmes and his ship the C.S.S. Alabama on the final legs of their reign of terror on the high seas. The novel chronicles Semmes’ rise to mythic stature as he becomes Lincoln’s public enemy number one, seizing and burning scores of Yankee ships in the Caribbean Sea, the south Atlantic, the Indian Ocean, and the South China Sea before heading to France for sanctuary . . . all the while dodging scores of Federal Navy ships pursuing him. Enemy vessels, spy games, mutinies, storms, and loneliness stock Semmes’ cruise during 1863-64. Meanwhile, back in the Lincoln White House, Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles tries to marshal his warships to catch Semmes and simultaneously protect his president from spies and assassins, one of whom is Semmes’ mistress. In addition to the main characters, the cast of Seahawk Burning includes historical figures from the governments and navies of the North and South as well as the Black Moses Harriet Tubman, John Wilkes Booth, and his fellow conspirators. All of the threads in this saga come together in a final showdown off Cherbourg, France, when Semmes decides to take the Alabama into battle against the U.S.S. Kearsarge, captained by his old friend John A. Winslow. It is one of the greatest naval battles in history.

Randall Peffer is an instructor at Philips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He is the author of Southern Seahawk and Seahawk Hunting about Confederate raider Rafael Semmes. He is also the author of the Cape Islands Mystery Series, including Killing Neptune’s Daughter, Provincetown Follies/Bangkok Blues, Old School Bones, Bangkok Dragons/ Cape Cod Tears, and Listen to the Dead. His nonfiction books include Logs of the Dead Pirate Society and Watermen.

An axed-out adventure for the bea(s)t generation • Forget the played-out mash-up. This is a straight-up parody as

Kerouac’s classic gets re-spun as a cross-country bro-trip • Jack K. still beasts—he and his book have over 400,000 Facebook

Likes and a movie adaptation hitting the screens at the end of the year • Perfect for recent college grads on the road to their brofessional lives

On the Bro’d

A Parody of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road Mike Lacher

We posted up at a sports bar and threw down the game plan—we were gonna party together and get wild forever. Dean kept checking his phone a bunch, sending texts and looking at Facebook to see what’s good. “Looks like I’ve got some solid dudes chilling in Denver. We gotta go hang with those dudes. They’re probably up to some real crazy shit. You feel me?” Fuck yeah. We were gonna get wilder now than we’d ever gotten before. Set in the tumultuous era that was 2010, On the Bro’d tells the story of one restless bro shot-gunning Nattie Light, maxing out his biceps, and smashing honeys across the American night. He drifts from state to state, hoping that somewhere along the line he will achieve a greater plane of existence as a solid badass player, while getting totally hammered along the way. Whether readers are excited (or incited) as true Keroauc fans or killing time waiting for Snooki’s latest literary masterpiece to drop, they’ll know what’s up when they can't put down On the Bro’d.

Mike Lacher (New York, NY) writes and builds funny things on the Internet. His work has been featured in McSweeney’s, The New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, and on WIRED.COM. But that doesn’t matter ‘cuz he has a totally weak alcohol tolerance and can only hold a kegstand for like two seconds.

Man Enough?

The Facts and Stats Every Real Guy Should Know Max Brallier and Geoff Baker

The last time a guy felt like a tool had nothing to do with his inability to tie the perfect Windsor, select the correct fork for the second course, or fight off a bear (that guy’s dead). He did feel like a dumb-ass when he didn’t know who said, “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”, referred to a nickel D as a dime, and thought the Enzo was a Porsche. That’s the stuff he’s supposed to know.

Marketing: • National PR to college, humor, men’s interest, pop

Proper man-iquette, useful know-how, and ridiculous survival scenarios all have their place in the man-lit library. But now it’s time to add the essential facts into the mix. So whether he’s testing his own knowledge or busting his buddies on their lack-of, Man Enough? lays down some serious schooling so he doesn’t get seriously schooled.

Physics for Men

The Science Behind Being a Guy P. R. Kelt

Who would’ve known there was so much thought behind a guy’s every move? Sure, he’s impressed bystanders with the lengths he’ll go in order to reach the remote without getting out of the recliner. But his mission’s success is just dumb luck . . . right? Better go to the replay. Whereas a simpleton might think his foot kicking down on the magazine and sending the clicker sailing through the air and into his outstretched hand is a fluke—it’s actually a very calculated move. The angles of impact and trajectory were carefully thought out. Drag and resistance were factored in. And velocity was figured in order to time the catch perfectly. Not as easy as first thought. Physics for Men shows readers that there’s a science behind being that awesome.

As a kid, P. R. Kelt (Salt Lake City, UT) got a huge magnifying glass for his birthday and promptly set the yard on fire. He has been a physicist for the past ten years and a guy all his life. A PhD candidate, he thinks about the intricacies of quantum coherence as he scales fifty foot cliffs, rides backcountry, and teaches salsa.

It will always be a good idea to purchase this book • The first humorous book that shows readers how their seemingly-

beneficial actions set in motion dangerous consequences • Fans of movies with butterfly effects, such as Source Code, Back to the

Future, Donnie Darko, Memento, and 12 Monkeys will enjoy this book

It Seemed Like a Good Idea . . .

A Cautionary Guide to Avoiding 101 of Life’s Potentially Most-Regrettable Decisions Meghan Rowland and Chris Turner-Neal

“Marty, we’ve already agreed that having information about the future can have disastrous consequences. Even if your intentions are good, it can backfire drastically!” —Dr. Emmett Brown in Back to the Future Doc was right to caution about the disastrous consequences of one’s actions. However, why wouldn’t readers want to know how their actions affect their future? In It Seemed Like a Good Idea . . ., authors Meghan Rowland and Chris Turner-Neal provide readers with the seemingly beneficial, impulsive choices they could make then show the fallout from that downward-spiraling butterfly effect. Readers will be properly warned that their decisions now have serious repercussions later, such as: • Using a neti pot: Forty-five seconds later, you’re choking on salt water and mucus; forty-six seconds later, you glare down at your corpse, which is wearing Scooby Doo boxers and a torn sports bra • Going on The Real World: Two years later, after unceremoniously being kicked off the show, you agree to go on a Real World/Road Rules Challenge to recoup the money lost from self-producing your acoustic Christian-rock album • Holding a séance: One minute later, you’ve accidentally summoned the demon J’ahnkan-Di, Knight of Wrath and Breaker of the Eight Seals So, readers must discover and contain their ripple effects right away because they don’t have a time machine to save their asses.

What is perfect? • It’s the first book to put perfection right at the reader’s fingertips • Simple and to the point, Perfect. is the ideal trivia book as it collects

• With a perfectly compact package, Perfect. makes the perfect desk

reference or impulse gift for the perfectionist in everyone’s life

Perfect.

The Encyclopedia of Perfection Josh Mack

It’s a 300 if you’re at the bowling alley. A 2400 if you’re taking the SATs. And firm with a warm, red center if you order your steak medium-rare. While the execution of perfection depends on the task at hand, the result is the same across the board—complete satisfaction. Whether readers are interested in what qualifies as the perfect pour of a pint or the players who pitched perfect games, this handy resource collects information on all things perfect.

Marketing: • National PR outreach to women’s interest, pop culture, and gift media

• Promotion on Jane on Top blog • Targeted social media outreach • eBook promotion

Complete with interesting anecdotes of perfection in action as well as instructions on how to achieve certain feats of perfection, Perfect. really is the perfect reference.

Perfect pitch is the ability to identify or reproduce tones without any accompanying context. For instance, when a note is played on a piano, a person with perfect pitch is able to name and/or sing in that key. While perfect pitch is not a prerequisite for musical prowess, many noted composers and musicians—from Mozart to Mariah Carey—have been gifted with this talent.

Josh Mack (New York, NY) always strives for perfection and has done so in a number of different professions including painting, carpentry, and copywriting. While he’s always looking to perfect perfection, he enjoyed defining it in this book.

How to Start Your Own Religion

Form a Church, Gain Followers, Become Tax-Exempt, and Sway the Minds of Millions in Five Easy Steps Philip Athans, Founder and Sole Member of the Church of Phil

“The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion.” —L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology Who wouldn’t want countless worshippers to hang on their every word? To erect a golden statue that highlights all of their best features? To bask in the adoration of fellow members bowing down at their greatness? Starting a new religion can be fun and profitable. Readers will laugh along with Philip Athans (founder, leader, and sole member of the Church of Phil), as he shows how to: • Gather the flock and keep ‘em coming back for more • Organize mysterious and complex rituals • Interrogate (or just ridicule) the hell out of nonbelievers • Recruit celebrity spokespeople, from Tom Cruise to Uma Thurman For anyone who’s ever felt the need to sacrifice on an altar beneath a blood-red moon, or just make Friday a holy day (three-day weekend, anyone?), this is the only sacred text creed they need.

Keep an eye on him, but a little trouble will teach him valuable lessons. A Leo baby loves being the center of attention. Encourage her to be the best but make sure she doesn’t get too proud! Every baby is unique in his or her own way—and that uniqueness is mapped out by the stars. Now parents will have a way to find out what kind of child they will have based on the baby’s star sign. Inside readers will find everything they need to know to raise their little stars including personality traits, their special talents, what games they will like to play, what songs will get them to sleep, and how to best parent them if they are a Cancer but their baby is a Taurus. Babystrology: Because every baby is born under a special star!

You Know Who’s Awesome? (Not Them.) Ted Fox

Ever think . . . You know who’s awesome? Vegans. Didn’t think so. But you know who has? Vegans. This is their wake-up call. You Know Who’s Awesome? takes on those people, places, and things that have been too busy downing their own Kool-Aid to realize just how un-cool they’ve become.

Sort of.) to DiGiorno (No sh*t it’s not delivery; it’s been in the freezer since February) to that coworker who offers unsolicited fashion advice (Because reeking of tuna qualifies her to be the next Anna Wintour), no one (or thing) is safe.

The first crowd-sourced how-to book on the market! • LIKE! The entry topics come from the fingertips of the masses, who’ve

posted, tweeted, and messaged their opinions • From throwing a Frisbee to knowing the Preamble to the Constitution,

people want other people to know a lot of (random) stuff • Built by the people, there will be a built-in audience

What You Need to Know According to Everyone Else Tom Moynihan

If you ask, they will tell. In a world where 200 million Tweets are sent per day and half a billion Friends are letting readers know what’s happening, everyone thinks they know what’s up. And sometimes, they actually do. What You Need to Know collects the definitely useful, but occasionally random things that fellow humans think readers need to know. Each entry gives a short explanation as to why people think it’s particularly important and then the actual how-to. From being able to say hello in five languages to mixing the perfect Bloody Mary to juggling three objects in the air, the information (and reasoning) will run the gamut. Now readers will know what everyone else expects them to know without having to ask.

Tom Moynihan (Boston, MA) is a freelance writer who’s always interested to hear what other people think—regardless of what he thinks of them.

FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE

Tuesday/New Year’s Day

Live in an Airport The biggest problem you’ll face when bumming around in an airport is security. Short of wearing an invisibility cloak, there’s not much you can do to avoid the surveillance cameras and security guards. You need to buy time by looking like a passenger who hasn’t checked in yet. Carry a large suitcase stuffed with changes of clothes and various disguises, such as fake beards, glasses, and wigs. Every morning, dress up in a different disguise so that the security guards don’t realize you are planning on becoming a semi-permanent fixture.

If you took all the beer consumed in the United States in one year, you could fill one out of every twenty-five residential in-ground pools in the country. If you were to put that same beer in a single keg, that keg would measure 1,429 feet tall and 870 feet wide. If you were then to put it in standard twelve-ounce cans, it would amount to one can for every American over the age of twenty-one, each day of the week (except Sunday), for an entire year.

The “New Nordic Cuisine” is having its moment in the spotlight. The Danish restaurant NOMA was recently named the world’s number one restaurant in the annual Pellegrino survey. Scandinavian products—like smoked salmon, hearty rye and sourdough breads, and lingonberry jam—are increasingly popular with U.S. consumers. And Nordic cooking incorporates many of today’s most popular food trends: local/seasonal foods, smoking, home preserving, and “slow food” preparation.

For would-be entrepreneurs with the next great idea, starting their own business and following their passion can be a very appealing venture. The Everything® Start Your Own Business Book, 4th Edition with CD is the perfect introduction to the world of small business. With a handy CD with every form from business plans to accounting templates, this all-in-one manual is the only thing budding entrepreneurs need to see their dream flourish and grow!

Packed with hundreds of recipes, from simple breakfasts to elaborate smorgasbords, this comprehensive cookbook introduces American cooks to the healthful benefits of the Nordic lifestyle using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. Kari Schoening Diehl (Bellingham, WA) is a seasoned food writer, editor, and photographer. She is About.com’s Guide to Scandinavian Food and a feature writer for The Viking Magazine.
