The Newsmakers by Lis Wiehl
Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won’t come back to sabotage her dreams.
Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can’t deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now.
On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses—and films—a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later, another tragedy strikes – again, right in front of Erica and her cameras.
Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can’t just be coincidence. But what is it?
Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster—and her troubled past—don’t catch up with her first.

Buckminster’s Ball: Second Edition by J.A. Zaremski
My name is Everit Tyshinski and, for a long time, I wanted to die. It wasn’t always that way. I once was a reasonably competent attorney with a well-respected firm in Philadelphia. I lived in a posh suburb with the love of my life, Tara, where we were in happy pursuit of our first child. We met on the soccer pitch. An old college buddy had convinced me to play on his team in a gender-mixed, adult league. While warming up before the first game, an inadvertent pass struck me where no man should be struck, bringing me to my knees. When my eyes cleared, standing above me was a leggy, auburn blonde. She had asked me to pick up a pregnancy-test kit on the way home that night. But the firm was celebrating a big damages award at the local bar. In my drunken stupor, I had forgotten. So she ran out to the store instead. Everything changed after that. It was my fault. Soon after Tara left, I became obsessed with death. Though I wanted to kill myself, I just couldn’t commit the act. The fantasy of suicide became my only companion in the back seat of the van I called home. Then, I found an ad soliciting for a soccer coach at a high school in North Philadelphia. They were averaging two homicides a day there. At last! The resolution to my cowardice! Thomas Paine High sat in one of the worst neighborhoods in North Philly. And like me, it was closer to dead than alive. We needed each other. They needed a soccer coach – I was the only one to have answered the ad – and I needed a place to die. I was well on my way to becoming a city statistic until I met those kids. That’s when strange things began to happen

Yamada Monogatari: The War God’s Son by Richard Parks
The Abe clan and its allies are in full rebellion. When the Emperor’s greatest military leader, Yoshii, is targeted for assassination by magic, it is up to the newly sober Lord Yamada and his exorcist associate Kenji to keep the young man alive long enough to put down the uprising before the entire country is consumed by war. Yamada knows how to deal with demons, monsters, and angry ghosts, but the greatest threat of all is one final assassin, hidden in a place where no one ― especially Lord Yamada ― would ever think to look.
