“I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to souls who lost their place in this world.” – from Last Summer in Algonac

 

The summer of 1938 is idyllic for fourteen-year-old Dorothy Ann Reid. She’s spent every summer of her life visiting her grandparent’s home on the banks of the St. Clair River in Algonac, Michigan. But unbeknownst to her, this will be her last. As Dorothy and her family pass their time swimming, fishing, and boating, they are blissfully unaware that tragedy lurks just around the corner.

 

Last Summer in Algonac is a fictionalized account of the author’s grandmother and her family’s final summer before her father’s suicide, which altered their lives forever. Inspired by real people and events, Laurisa Reyes has woven threads of truth with imagination, creating a “what if” tale. No one living today knows the details leading to Bertram Reid’s death, but thanks to decades of letters, personal interviews, historical research, and a visit to Algonac, Reyes attempts to resolve unanswered questions, and provide solace and closure to the Reid family at last.

SKYROCKET PRESS NOVEL WRITING CONTEST!

A Sacred Duty by Paula Pedene is a memoir about the author’s struggles as a government whistleblower. Pedene, a decorated veteran who later worked in the Phoenix VA Health Care System, witnessed a level of corruption that resulted in the deaths of many vets. After she took steps to see justice was done, she faced retaliation for her efforts. This is the true story about the VA Phoenix Wait Time Scandal that rocked the White House and how one patriotic American risked it all to do the right thing.

Fall publication is anticipated for A Sacred Duty. In the meantime, we invite you to check out last year’s contest winner, The Fergus by Tori Grant Welhouse, about a boy who goes on a quest through the Scottish otherworld, searching for a way to reconnect with his dead gran.
