I want to share with you the works of two new indie authors who I think are really special. The first is Diana McDonough, who has written a funny, poignant, bittersweet novel entitled Stuck in the Onesies. The title comes from the child’s game of Jacks: if you get stuck in the first round–the onesies–you play catch-up for the rest of the game. That’s a metaphor for the lives of two women raising their families in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. It will make you laugh and cry in equal doses.
The other book is Mine to Avenge, book one of a trilogy entitled In Such a World, by T.J. Hux. It is a novel of espionage and international terrorism, and follows the quest of former SEAL Matthew Pierson as he tries to redeem his life after discovering that he was deceived into killing an American citizen on his last mission. It’s a gritty, complex page-turner that may keep you up late. I was fortunate enough to get an advance reader copy of book two, due to be published soon, and it is even more thrilling than the first. I’m sure I’ll have to fasten my seat belt when the final installment arrives!
