Authors: 
Connie Bombaci and her dog, Hogan's Hope
Deaf dogs are often destroyed, mistreated, or abandoned. Hogan’s Hope is the tale of a legendary deaf canine hero who, after being rescued from neglect, prevailed as he learned over 65 signs in American Sign Language and thereby providing the hope of life for many deaf dogs worldwide. His courage to overcome challenges and prejudice continues to give inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that accomplishment, success, and genuine love are truly possible. Through his lifetime of determination, his story offers us the promise that we are capable of achieving an amazingly “ordinary” life and a life away from isolation. From hardship to success, hope gave the inspiration for overcoming any challenge. His journey of valor reveals dreams come true and offers insight into the world of true faith, unconditional love, and endless hope. Indeed, it is a story that needs to be told. Read and gain immeasurable hope! 

Shawn Flynn, The Kitty
A touching and inspiring story of heartfelt companionship, The Kitty offers an uplifting perspective on what it means to find true friendship in this world. Anyone who has ever shared a meaningful connection with a pet will fall head over heels in love with Kitty and Shawn.
As Shawn discovers, sometimes we don't even realize we need to be rescued--until we are. 

Penny Goetjen, The Empty Chair, and Murder on the Precipice
The Empty Chair: 
Young Olivia travels to the Virgin Islands to settle affairs after receiving word her mother, a highly acclaimed photographer on St. Thomas, has perished in a boating accident, but island police have no record of her death or even the accident. Could her mother still be alive? Olivia desperately needs the truth, if she has to find it herself.
A bar brawl. A break-in and robbery. Her mother’s Caribbean bungalow ransacked. Can things get any worse at picturesque Magens Bay? Olivia’s search takes a sinister turn when a charming man, claiming to be her mother’s lover, is shot and she’s the prime suspect.
Murder on the Precipice:
Set in an old family run inn on the rocky, tumultuous coast of Maine, Murder on the Precipice is a captivating mystery page-turner. Elizabeth, a successful Manhattan interior designer, grew up in the inn and is thrilled to leave behind her tyrannical boss and the big city for a few days after her grandmother asks her to return to her childhood home. Upon her arrival, Elizabeth learns a young female guest is missing in a case that is eerily similar to an unsolved disappearance on the property years earlier so she makes it her mission to find the girl and save the inn. But in her search for answers, Elizabeth uncovers shocking details that challenge everything she thought she knew about her herself, her family and her past.
