Down In Monterey



Down in Monterey (The Summer of Love) is told through the eyes of the narrator, 17-year-old Wyatt Hiatt, who experiences a raucous coming-of-age weekend in the summer of 1967. After running away from home, Wyatt happens upon the free-spirited flower child Dusty Bedingham, who convinces him to hitchhike down the California coastline to partake in the Monterey Pop Festival. On their enlightening and sometimes outlandish trip, Wyatt and Dusty hitch a ride with the unsavory Bobby and Griff, hang out with Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones and are introduced to a soon-to-be famous rock singer, who becomes one of the stars of the pop festival. All of their worlds soon collide in a psychedelic adventure of larger-than-life proportions. Irreverent and often amusing, Down in Monterey (The Summer of Love) is a contemporary tale sure to entertain story lovers who experienced the sixties…and those who wish they had.

Available To Chat



People tell Olivia her online beau may actually be helping her fading marriage. The saleswoman she met at an adult toy party claims satisfaction is about the heat, not the source. Olivia’s therapist suggests her romantic fantasies could stoke the embers of her twenty-plus-year relationship. Even Olivia’s lust interest, Jake, says, “I tell myself I’m good for you.” 

But Olivia knows the only thing getting hotter are her amorous feelings for Jake. He charms her with flirty conversation and reels her in with confessions of his own failing relationship. The more they talk, the more Olivia’s thoughts and evenings–which once belonged to her son and husband–are consumed with him. 

Olivia tells herself it’s all harmless since the two of them won’t ever meet…until the night they do. That’s when Olivia is forced to confront what she wants, what she needs and what she’s willing to give up. 

Tag along with Olivia in this sexy, honest, funny and touching story by Jacy Sutton.

Snowflakes


Snowflakes
by Steve Catto

Discovering that you can’t find your way back home can be quite disturbing, but when there’s fish to catch, food to grow, animals to hunt, and a boy to share, the world turns out to be quite tolerable really. What more could a girl want?

The problem might be that the world doesn’t find it particularly tolerable, because life is going on and no-one’s really doing anything, except enjoying themselves. That’s got to stop, there’s work to be done!

Time to send in the little grubby girl with the big eyes and the long dark hair... and maybe the monkey. That’ll put the cat among the pigeons.
