“I ain’t a liar, though I have told a fib or two…”<br /><br />In a small, southern Missouri town, young Joe Gilmore struggles with the loss of his outlaw-turned-war-hero father and his love for a girl down the road who only sees him as a friend. Maddy Winters’ voracious appetite for thrilling dime novel tales has immersed her in a world of fantasy, filled with unrealistic hopes and dreams. Joe, haunted by terrible nightmares of his father and his inability to save his mother from losing her farm, makes a fateful decision to imitate Maddy’s dime novel hero, and unwittingly launches a manhunt that thrusts him into the chronicles of history. As a beleaguered governor tries desperately to tamp down copycat criminals, federal marshals, Pinkerton agents, bounty hunters, and Maddy herself race against time to find Joe, while newspapers and dime novelists alike find new fodder to excite and exhilarate their readers.<br /><br />Dime Novel is told from the perspective of Joe’s adventure, period news articles, and a long-forgotten interview with dime novelist William Porter, discovered in the archives of the Smithsonian Institution. As the story unfolds, we find that our historical accounts are often fluid – highly dependent upon the whims and allegiances of the writers and press of the time. Author Jon Judson weaves a tale to set the record straight, shedding the light of truth on the myths and misconceptions of the legend of Joseph Gilmore. In doing so, he brings closure to the misunderstood life of a nearly forgotten figure in American history.<br /><br />“A thrilling, thunderous yarn. I couldn’t put it down.” – Ned Buntline (Edward Zane Carroll Judson), Dime Novelist<br /><br />“I wouldn’t give you a plugged nickel for this damnable tome and Buntline both.” – Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), Author<br />

<b>A smart-arse vlogger.</b><br /><b>A vicious boxer.</b><br /><b>A live-streaming face-off...</b><br /><br />They call him "The Tempest."<br />England’s most feared heavyweight-boxing champion.<br />He despises the fame and glory, but it's nothing compared to the hate he inflicts on himself. All he wants is to be left alone to live on his boat in misery.<br /><br />When I line up for his autograph, it’s instant fireworks. But not the beautiful stars-shine-bright kind. He's rude. Heartless. A ticking time bomb of rage.<br />Luckily, I'm not afraid to put a lit match to his fuse.<br />I upload his private video to my <b>one-million-subscribers</b> channel. The video goes <i>viral</i>.<br />The ex-Royal Marine nearly breaks down my studio door to flag me inappropriate…<br /><b>…<i>while</i> I’m in the middle of a live-streaming event.</b><br />I don’t tell him. I don’t switch off the camera. I keep recording, secretly playing to my audience. He should have checked if the camera was rolling, right?<br /><br />It should be a shipwreck from the moment the tempest hits.<br />It is.<br />And then ... it isn’t.<br />Our attraction is painful, undeniable, and it’s like I am Eve and his lips are the apple, and damn if his tongue isn’t the snake.<br /><br />I am the only girl who can put this broken man back together again.<br />But he knows the secret he is keeping will tear us apart. He knows it’ll force my hand to break ties with the only family I have left in this world.<br />But once The Tempest, the man with the iron heart, falls in love … he'll crush anyone who dares to take me away from him.<br />I have no choice but to go down with his <i>big ship</i>.<br /><b>Hook, line, and goddamned sinker.</b><br /><br />The Tempest is a contemporary romance story of love, <b>comedy</b> and treachery.<br /><br />No cheating.

A year that changed everything...<br /><br />Set at a religious, liberal-arts university, Tabula Rasa tells a story of growing up, falling in and out of love, and forging bonds of friendship that have a lifelong effect. Told through the eyes of a young freshman named Troy Rollins, the novel is at once bitingly witty, frank, tragic, painful, but above all, hopeful.<br /><br />Troy begins his year at Ellis University as a blank slate: no ambition and no other desire than to finally be on his own and maybe be lucky enough to find a nice girlfriend. He is introduced to a wide variety of stimulating, albeit eccentric characters. His roommate Robby, a socially awkward insomniac. Phil, the Residental Advisor, to whom Troy takes an immediate dislike towards. Brandon, a hyperactive boy across the room who randomly screams profanity. And finally, a girl named Rylee, who he falls deeply and painfully in love with. As his life takes many surprising turns, including becoming embroiled with a dark and dangerous social group, Troy learns the hardest part of life: growing up.<br /><br />Insightful, intellectual, nostalgic, and incredibly funny, you will experience one evocative first year of college, alongside Troy and the people that make a lasting impression on him forever. Raw and powerful, this memoir will stay with you forever.

The Bathroom Window is about a teenage boy living in an apartment building in Brooklyn. He is both a voyeur and an exhibitionist. So is his older female neighbor. The two of them develop a secret and short-lived relationship across the alley from each other. But in his rush to physically get together with his neighbor, the teenager runs his bike into a car. The resulting crash changes their relationship, and the life of the person driving the car, in the driver’s case, for the better.<br /> <br />The story is narrated by a fictional author. As the author tells the story to his agent, he also comments on the trials and tribulations of being a writer.<br /> <br />The Bathroom Window, written for an adult audience, is both mildly erotic and funny.
