Pre-order “Green” by Theresa Senato Edwards, a little book with a big way of easing the heart.
Finishing Line Press, an award-winning small press, will republish Green, a chapbook by Theresa Senato Edwards, February 12, 2016, with pre-order availability from now until December 18, 2015. Cover art by Frank Valvano.
Green is a fictional minimalist long-poem narrative chapbook that shows the ways in which a grandmother’s house can help her grandson realize not only his grief but also his life in a strange yet simple kind of way. The narrative uses “green” as an extended metaphor for grief; “blue” has a few meanings: blessing, comfort, hope.
The poet’s hope is that Green will help readers realize the weight of grief but the possibility of life and love.

Memoir Turns Back the Clock Like ‘Face Cream for the Soul’ in “Hello, 31” by Marion Scherer.
What if one could journey back in time and issue advice (and warnings) about what will occur in the future? Would this change anything?
Hello, 31 is creative nonfiction. It’s the story of an older woman who confronts her 31-year-old younger self on her wedding day to get “31” to change her ways. Her older self is not acknowledged at first and is considered just the voice of conscience by her younger self, until a crisis forces “31” to finally see her older self. The interloper is told to get out of her life and leave her alone. Like a mother’s love, the older woman persists until the two find a way to look at their life with new meaning.
How many wish they could turn back the clock and erase the mistakes of youth – a face cream, if you will – for the soul? This intriguing book is for adults of all ages, especially Boomer women.
“This book is a fascinating read as well as a compelling look at what could be. We are pleased to announce its release,” said Robert More >
“Start The F Up” by Rajive Dhavan For Present and Future Leaders of Startups, Small and Medium-Sized Companies.
The start-up culture in the world has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years. The ecosystem is bustling with ideas, pitches, funding, and more. Start-ups have suddenly become a rage all over.
Serial entrepreneur and author Rajive Dhavan is among those risk-takers who entered the start-up world at the age of 22, with as little as $600. All he had was an idea that he believed in. During his journey, he challenged the status quo, witnessed success, embraced failure and showcased exponential growth. Incidentally, Dhavan has founded three separate companies so far.
In STFU—Start The F Up, Rajive shares some basic ideologies he developed through the initial phase as an entrepreneur. Dhavan has drawn his perspective from the fundamentals of business and management, self-belief, and real-world experiences and failures. Geared toward present and future leaders of start-ups and small and medium-sized companies, he offers a new way of looking at things with an honest, unusual and a broader perspective—a perspective that has lived deep inside you but hasn’t come to the surface.

Biblical References Abound in ‘The Rapture’ in “The Rapture and the Tribulation Are Past” by Isiah Lawrence Nottage.

“Gog” by Brandi George is an exorcism of the past and of terrible betrayals.
Gog is an exorcism of the past, of terrible betrayals, of women churned into the earth with their stillborn children, children torn from childhood like the victims of some hideous domestic war. Brandi George conjures up a world of monsters who live down the street, work in factories, go to church, pray to a God who cannot be paying attention to the havoc he has created. And yet George’s gorgeous language takes this hell and creates an aching beauty that shakes the reader. She screams, laments, exhorts, rants, weeps, prays, and in her words we see a woman who has risen from the flames of her past into a poetic paradise. Gog shimmers with a terrible beauty. —Barbara Hamby
A story—our story—in which “snakes spin the world in reverse,” and “bug zappers outshine the stars,” an era of prostitues and johns crashing through second story floorboards, a time when souls find their most stable reality in the flurry of transmigration, this is the cosmos Brandi George navigates in Gog. At her service is a language lyrically rich, wild out of necessity, the sheer will to survive. More >

In the epic rhyming tradition of the greats – Milton, Dante, and Goethe – Heaven to Eden reveals why God granted life. The book takes place eons ago when God was alone in a beautiful, but unpopulated heaven.
