The Prophecy
by Gill James
Bridge House
(Feb, 2008)

Kaleem Malkendy is different – and on Terrestra, different is no way to be.

Everything about Kaleem marks him out from the rest. The blond hair and dark skin, the humble cave where he lives and the fact that he doesn’t know his father. He’s used to unwelcome attention - but even so, he’d feel better if some strange old man didn’t keep following him around.

Then the man introduces himself and begins to explain the Babel Prophecy – and everything in Kaleem’s life changes forever.

The Money God
By Zena Livingston
June, 2009

IN HER DEBUT NOVEL, ZENA LIVINGSTON EXPLORES ONE FAMILY'S DESTRUCTION AS THEY PURSUE THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR

"Money was a driving force in Celia's life.

With it she had everything, without it she was vulnerable and alone."

From the rural Catskill Mountains to the busy streets of New York City, THE MONEY GOD by Zena Livingston takes us on one family's journey through three decades. We watch Celia, her mother Sophie, and her two daughters, Estelle and Ann get caught up in a whirlpool of love, loss and greed. The constant desire for wealth drives these women apart as they simultaneously deal with their own financial struggles, family rifts and the immediate consequences of global conflicts.
