The Microscope: A collection of snapshots immortalized with a penby Anna Lorenzi
''Dedicated to those who believe in art, in real freedom of expression, in originality and in uniqueness.'' After the appearance of her novel, Meeting Laura, and during the writing of the sequel, Anna ''Annina'' Lorenzi surprises us, again, with a ‘lateral’ project completely different from her previous publications. It’s an outside of the box collection, without rules. A collection of words and images, of emotions, of Life that someone has even called ''poetry''... ''Within these pages, you’ll find everything and it’s exact opposite. You’ll find me. Better yet, though, you’ll find what you yourselves want to find. Take these ‘snapshots’ as if they were pictures hung on empty walls in an art exhibit (if we can talk of ‘art’). Observe them, read them, immerse yourselves in them without thinking. Empty your minds, use your hearts…''
Meeting Laura: A novel loosely and partially inspired by the life of...by Anna Lorenzi
A young writer, a challenge that he can’t *not* accept and his “crazy” idea to follow that dream with his whole being. In his pocket, a plane ticket for New York, a few bucks, a little bit of fear, and a lot of determination. A manuscript that he hugs to himself, “as if it were the most important thing on the face of the earth,” a book already written, ready to be consigned to the world, but with a surprise ending that draws the reader in. A trip with an uncertain outcome, most assuredly unexpected, in order to meet his muse, and to give her his opus, sensations, words, and emotions for a better tomorrow. An unusual trip, apparently simple, but always intriguing in its “becoming,” narrated among thoughts, memories, emotions, and clear images depicting her, Laura, really that same Laura that the whole world knows and acclaims... (or maybe not?) **Price goes up to $1.99 from March 11-13**
Choices and Consequences, A Collection of Short Storiesby Sylvia A. Nash
All paths have destinations, just as all choices have consequences. More often than not, however, neither destinations nor consequences are what were expected. Such is the case with the central character in each of the stories in this collection. He or she chooses a path that ostensibly will lead toward the discovery of a perpetrator, a secret, a possession, a missing friend, an ancestor’s grave, redemption, or a new home only to discover the unexpected consequence of someone else’s choice. (Two of the stories in this collection, “A Hint of Chocolate” and “Sins of the Father,” are prequels for the books in the Millicent Anderson Mystery Series: The Missing Calico, The Book of Secrets, and The Missing Manuscript.)

''If an author can make you cry for his characters then want to hug them close and then want to do an Irish jig with them to celebrate overcoming that much pain, then you know you have read a book that will stay with you forever.'' -- Wanda Hartzenberg, Wanda's Amazing Amazon Reviewers. It is a ''fantastic read that will pull at your heart.'' -- Lauren Alumbaugh, Goodreads librarian.
