New Release!

Our Gentle Sins by Noreen Lace is a novel that deals with contemporary issues.

The reader finds Valerie trying to convince herself that she’s happy. She’s newly married, living in a beautiful house, working at a small school in a privileged community – what could be so wrong? Yet, something is.

Alexander, her husband reveals more and more of his dark nature.

Enter Jack, a full of life and fun loving guy with his own secrets. He’s trying to live a good life, change his past behaviors, yet he keeps pushing to the edge.

For Valerie, the choice is not between the two men; it’s understanding her own choices, making her own decisions, and learning to move forward.

Will Valerie succeed before Alexander’s or Jack’s secrets threaten her future?

Publishers’ Weekly, Book Life, and other reviewers have already said:

“Lace takes a familiar story… and suffuses it with intriguing family drama.”
“…energetic prose…” “this is an appealing novel with relatable, flawed characters.” PW

“Lace has woven a wonderful tale with themes and characters that are universal and recognizable. Such issues as a woman’s personal sovereignty within a relationship, the oppressiveness, both subtle and overt, of patriarchy and the mixed blessings of liberation are explored. A wonderful, readable story, ideal for Summer reading. Kudos to Noreen Lace.” Ron Terranova

“Ms. Lace has written a novel that is both gritty and tender. Her ability to create very real characters with very real emotions makes this novel a satisfying read. What makes the short fiction of Noreen Lace stand out is, not only Lace’s facility with language, but her ability to connect with her reader. She lays the soul of her characters at the feet of her readers and it’s impossible not to respond. In her fiction, Ms Lace creates a world of darkness and warmth. Her characters, although flawed, find a way to triumph over the hand fate has dealt them, moving forward and rising up through enormous odds. The journey: there-in lies the tale.” Jo Rousseau

The First of our Summer Releases

The REaDLips family welcomes Nicolette Elzie with her book of poetry BabyDoll

Babydoll is a beauty queen with a dark secret hiding behind her designer shades. She’s lost the will to live. Scared of her own thoughts, Babydoll embarks on a journey of self-discovery. But depression and suicide ideation will stop at nothing until they destroy her. Her very life is on the line and Babydoll will have to claw her way out of the darkness if she wants to live.

Inspired by Terrance Hayes’ Hip Logic with tributes to the legendary Sylvia Plath and Coco Chanel, this deeply tender confessional volume of poetry explores themes of mental health, tragic romance, glamour, and melancholia.

We have every confidence, you’ll love BabyDoll.
