ÒA memoir that shines with a bright spirit, a generousÊheart and an entertaining knack for celebrating absurdity.ÓÑThe New York Times Book Review ÒThis is Smith at her finest.ÓÑLibrary Journal, starred review Set deep in the mountains of Virginia, the Grundy of Lee SmithÕs youth was a place of coal miners, tent revivals, mountain music, drive-in theaters, and her daddyÕs dimestore. When she was sent off to college to gain some Òculture,Ó she understood that perhaps the richest culture she would ever know was the one she was leaving. Lee SmithÕs fiction has always lived and breathed with the rhythms and people of the Appalachian South. But never before has she written her own story.Ê DimestoreÕs fifteen essays are crushingly honest, wise and perceptive, and superbly entertaining. Together, they create an inspiring story of the birth of a writer and a poignant look at a way of life that has all but vanished.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

In New York Times bestselling author Denise Swanson’s “slightly zany”* new mystery series, Devereaux Sinclair loves running her old-fashioned store in her small Missouri hometown. If only murder didn’t keep landing on her doorstep… Dev’s five-and-dime may be doing well, but her love life is in turmoil. She’s torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a great deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elise’s soon-to-be ex-husband? In buying them, has Dev committed a felony? When Elise is found shot to death, the mystery deepens—and Dev’s good friend Boone, who discovered the body, is taken into custody. With the help of her best buds, Dev must clear Boone’s name and find the real killer. Good thing that when it comes to amateur sleuths, they broke the mold with Dev Sinclair. *Library Journal

E-BOOK EXCERPT

OMNIBUS Witches, Cabels, and Supernaturals...oh my! Paranormal superstar and internationally bestselling author Kelley Armstrong's second Otherworld omnibus includes Dime Store Magic and Industrial Magic, along with two short stories, Wedding Bell Hell & Case of the Half-Demon Spy. DIME STORE MAGIC: Paige Winterbourne was always either too young or too rebellious to succeed her mother as leader of one of the world's most powerful elite organizations--the American Coven of Witches. Now that she is twenty-three and her mother is dead, the Elders can no longer deny her. But even Paige's wildest antics can't hold a candle to those of her new charge--an orphan who is all too willing to use her budding powers for evil...and evil is all too willing to claim her. It's an initiation into adulthood, womanhood, and the brutal side of magic that Paige will have to do everything within her power to make sure they both survive. INDUSTRIAL MAGIC: Paige broke with the elite, ultraconservative American Coven of Witches and her goal is to start a new Coven for a new generation. But while she pitches her vision to uptight thirty-something witches in business suits, a more urgent matter commands her attention: someone is murdering the teenage offspring of the underworld's most influential Cabals--a circle of families that makes the mob look like amateurs. WEDDING BELL HELL: This story picks up three weeks before Paige and Lucas get married--and if you thought planning a wedding was complicated as a mere human, imagine being a witch marrying a sorcerer. CASE OF THE HALF-DEMON SPY: This story takes place when Paige and Adam were still in their early teens. Bored after being told to wait outside at a Council Meeting, they try to pass the time eavesdropping...until a stranger turns up, turns out to be an Exaudio demon, and things get really serious.
