Here: Women Writing on Michigan's Upper Peninsula
How does place impact prose? Here: Women Writing on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula explores that very question, drawing on the work of Upper Peninsula authors past and present to create a vibrant kaleidoscope of voices and experiences. Bame-wa-wa-ge-zhik-aquay, Janet Loxley Lewis, Lorine Niedecker, Catie Rosemurgy, and thirty-one other authors important to the region appear in this exceptional and diverse volume. In poetry (“Spring” by Beverly Matherne, “For Those Who Dream of Cranes” by Elinor Benedict, and “Skin on Skin” by Sally Brunk), short fiction (“North Country” by Roxane Gay, “For the Healing of All Women” by April Lindala, and “Winter Mines” by Sharon Dilworth), and novel excerpts (from Once on This Island by Gloria Whelan, South of Superior by Ellen Airgood, and Dandelion Cottage by Carroll Watson Rankin), the unique character of the U.P. materializes on the page. The book also shines a spotlight on powerful emerging voices such as Lisa Fay Coutley, Charmi Keranen, and Saara Myrene Raappana. The first of its kind, this is an anthology for all seasons, an homage to the rich literary heritage of the region.

The Saugatuck Dunes: Artists Respond to a Freshwater Landscape
The Saugatuck Dunes, on the southeastern shore of Lake Michigan, are a refuge for wildlife and for people. In the early twenty-first century, the endurance of their grassy hills, forested ridges, and the cool river that winds among them is something of a miracle. This ever-changing land and seascape with its white beaches and shifting patterns of light has captured the imaginations of thousands of artists. The Saugatuck Dunes: Artists Respond to a Freshwater Landscape presents 85 artworks, including works by 31 contemporary artists, all of whom are dedicated to preserving the land that inspires their art, and by 10 of the late painters who walked the dunes before them. As you meander through the pages, you ll find yourself cultivating your own connection with the sand and sky, the wind and water, and the interconnected community of living things the Saugatuck Dunes have long been. All proceeds from sales of this book will support the work of the Saugatuck Dunes Coastal Alliance, dedicated to protecting and preserving the character of this rare landscape.

Sacrifice (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

For Keira, life is not a fairy tale. Growing up in a witch clan, she was nothing but a treasure, for others to take power from. Now at the age of 19, running from the wedding that was meant for her to be sacrificed, she has nowhere to go other than a witch, hoping to survive from her clan members. Just when she thought, she survived everything her soon to be a husband who was supposed to be dead returns with every determination to take her soul and leave her insane. 

For Alexander, everything has been easy. You either love him or hate him with all you have. So when he needs the soul that can make him more powerful than he is, he'll use everything he can to make Keira his. But in the game of trust, she refuses to give into his charms and he dreads to feel something for her. 

And just when both of them thought things couldn't get any worse, an old Reaper comes back to hunt both of them, forcing them to team up to save themselves. Now it can work between Alex and Keira, but only-

If the other doesn't kill one first.

Before the Snow Moon
Before the Snow Moon is the second poetry collection by award-winning writer Alison Swan. In this collection, Swan explores an essential contemporary question: How can humans reconcile their unavoidable capacity for consumption and destruction with their admiration of nature? In these poems, Swan answers this question by exploring her evolving relationship with the natural world, examining what it means for her as a young girl to be "green and traveling" to the present day, where she calmly asserts, "I've been stepping as lightly as I can." This evolution of consciousness reveals one of the foundations of Swan's poetry: it is in constant conversation with the environment and human interaction with the environment.
