Hats Off! to Laurie McKay whose debut novel, Villain Keeper (HarperCollins Feb 2015), is featured on the Winter Kids' Indie Next List, in the 9-12 year old group.


Hats Off! to Heather Bell Adams whose stories Salamander in the Garden and Third Shift were finalists for the 2014 James Hurst Fiction Prize and 2014 NCSU Short Fiction Prize. Both contests were judged by Wiley Cash.


Hats Off! to Tom Davis who, through Old Mountain Press, has published an e-Book for Amazon Kindle and the Nook titled Operation Ivory Coast AKA The Son Tay Raid: A Short Briefing. This briefing was found over twenty years ago (forty years after the operation) in the classified US portion of the Korean Special Forces Compound near Seoul, Korea. In Operation Ivory Coast, a group of fifty-six Special Forces soldiers conducted a rescue operation to free sixty-one prisoners-of-war deep inside North Vietnam. Tom has introductory notes followed by the briefing. There are several things in this 1,368 word briefing that pique one’s interest. Of particular note are the named Americans who are listed as assets. One in particular you won't believe!
