In 1994, Lizbeth Meredith said good-bye to her four- and six year-old daughters for a visit with their non-custodial father only to learn days later that they had been kidnapped and taken to their father's home country of Greece. Twenty-nine and just on the verge of making her dreams of financial independence for her and her daughters come true, Lizbeth now faced a $100,000 problem on a $10 an hour budget. For the next two years fueled by memories of her own childhood kidnapping, Lizbeth traded in her small life for a life more public, traveling to the White House and Greece, and becoming a local media sensation in order to garner interest in her efforts. The generous community of Anchorage becomes Lizbeth's makeshift family?one that is replicated by a growing number of Greeks and expats overseas who help Lizbeth navigate the turbulent path leading back to her daughters.

An acclaimed spokesperson for equality at the helm of And Baby, a pioneer magazine, radio show, and TV series on alternative parenting, Michelle Darné found herself at once callously erased from the lives of her children and silenced by the law. Parent Deleted is a gripping tale of one non-biological, lesbian mother’s fight for her children—an intimate, infuriating, and infectious story of perseverance, sacrifice, and hope in the face of debilitating adversity. And it is a courageous, disturbing, and necessary exposé of a likely emergent social justice frontier: the rights of all children to be with their parents, whether they are biologically linked, straight, gay, prepared or knocked up, perfect spouses or fallible ones.

Marissa “Riss” Cobalt is a young sorceress-for-hire known throughout the world not only for her blue hair and temper but also for helping people with their problems if the money is right. So naturally, when the nephew of one of the ruling lords of the city of Westover disappears while searching for a legendary treasure, Riss is called on. Since she's on retainer to the lords, she has no choice but to accept, despite feeling there's more going on than she's being told. When a group of bandits hired to kill Riss attacks her, the swordsman Fiore Ferio steps in and saves her life. Then he insists on accompanying her, and Riss – who has avoided making friends because of her dangerous lifestyle – reluctantly agrees to let him come along. Things quickly become complicated when a Demon – a minion of the dark god, Yangul – attacks, and in the process reveals that Riss is part of an ancient prophecy. After managing to escape, and knowing the Demon could attack again at any time, a scared but determined Riss and Fiore race to learn more about the prophecy. A mysterious benefactor sends the duo to Riss's former teacher, who reveals that Riss is destined to battle and defeat Yangul with the staff of the legendary sorcerer, Ozanda Sunfire - Riss's ancestor. Stunned by the knowledge, the young sorceress grudingly accepts her fate to save the world and sets off to search for the staff. Along the way, she and Fiore rescue an elf maid, Arianna, who leads them back to her kingdom, where the Demon catches up. It challenges Riss to go to Yangul's temple in Camra and face the god of evil, and also takes Fiore's soul to hold hostage, forcing her to either accept the challenge or risk Fiore being tortured forever – or worse. Riss is so shaken by the possiblity, she begins to wonder if Fiore had become more than a friend. Determined to rescue Fiore and fulfill her destiny, Riss seeks out Ozanda's staff. With it and the help of a couple of friends, Riss thinks she can save both the world and her best friend. She knows it won't be easy, though, and if she succeeds, her life – and her heart - won't be the same. A fun, light-hearted fantasy adventure with a dash of anime styling.

A true-life adventure sure to shock as well as inspire. AK47s, masked thugs, and brutal urgency erupt from Roy Hallums' account of his abduction in Iraq, shredding through those frequently sterile cable news reports revealing that another "American contractor is being held hostage . . ." Hallums was the everyman behind that report?a 56-year-old retired Naval commander working as a food supply contractor in Baghdad's high-end Mansour District. His abduction was transacted in a matter of minutes, amidst a hail of gunfire and a handful of casualties. For the first few months of his captivity, Hallums endured beatings and psychological torture while being shuffled from one ramshackle safe house to another. From the four-foot-tall crawlspace where he carried out the bulk of his nearly year-long abduction, Hallums established a surprising degree of normalcy?a system of routines and timekeeping, along with an attention to the particulars that defined his horrific ordeal. His experience is recreated here, rich with harrowing specifics and surprising observations.
