Luckett, a two-book special including Searching for Tina Turner and Passing Love; the complete John Claude Bemis collection, including The Prince Who Fell From the Sky and all three titles from his Clockwork Dark trilogy of children’s fantasy; Laurie Frankel, Goodbye For Now; Julie Klam, Friendkeeping; David Abrams, Fobbit. Plus, look for these additional services provided by leading publishing professionals: A query critique from literary agent Michelle Brower of Folio Literary Management; a membership in Backspace, the premier forum for serious writers.
