Now, Room With Books proudly presents. . .   DIM LIGHT BREAKS by Jeff Haws   Jolting upright, I squeeze the Jack Daniels bottle between my thighs just before it tips over to the floor. I look down and see the black label staring at me; the little bit of whiskey that’s left is tilting toward the lip, ready to fill my shoes if my legs can’t hold onto it. I briefly wonder if this is why they give these bottles flat sides, for better drunken, convulsive thigh catches. It’s saved me on more than one occasion from having shoes full of whiskey. Well, that and my ability to leave the bottle mostly empty. I grab the top of the bottle and pull it back up, then try to raise my head; the room rotates quickly, lights…

Sometimes, you need to take the hand that’s offered. You reached out and took my arm. I let you. I took the assistance I needed. I gripped your hand so that you could pull me to my feet. The last thing I needed was for you to slit my wrists. So much blood. All that carnage. My heart ripped right out of my chest. I did my best. Though, what kind of an epitaph is that? Do I want that immortalised on my headstone? Does that adequately sum up a life? What about all the rest? At the end of the day, what’s left to show for…

Behind me is a small desert I’ve crossed – shoeless While carefully stepping over the littered offerings. Salt saturates my senses As the gentle-wind styles my hair, With the latest sea breeze fashion. My eyes are opened to new possibilities With a window into its wonders, With every wave that greets my feet, The sun soaks into my skin Cradling me in its warmth and completing the moment. I stand in awe before the substantial sea Observing its vast expansion of life- That I’m humbly a part of. <><><> SOARING I soar above it all In a human-made machine Taking me places Only my…

After a moderately grueling assignment, they take a day off to enjoy a Sunday barbecue. A Break in the Battle by Rhani D’Chae Charlene squealed, leaning to the side to avoid an airborne hot dog. She need not have worried, for the meaty missile bounced neatly against the chest of JT, who was seated next to her. “Damn it, Rudy!” JT grabbed a napkin from the table and scrubbed at his shirt. “That wasn’t funny!” “Really?” Rudy flashed an innocent grin over the top of barbecue grill. “I thought it was hilarious.” He flipped a pair of hamburgers, then added a dash of seasoning to each. “You got hot dog grease on my shirt,” JT said crossly. “Next time, warn me…

No matter how much and how well we plan, the universe always steps in to show us just how much, we are not as in control of things as we thought we were. These are real stories of moms, wives, spouses…those significant others who are left behind; those innocent, and maybe even not-so-innocents, who are left to pick up all the pieces that are shattered when their husbands walk out the door and don’t return in the time frame in which they are expected to. No, he didn’t run off with another woman…he was apprehended somewhere…

A whisper full of sorrow; A smile full of regret; A life less than ordinary; One I wish to forget. * * * Life is too precious to not make the most of every day. Cherish memories. Strive to make more.

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane Release Date: August 17th Genre: Contemporary Romance Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is coming August 17th!!! No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top. So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him. It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke. He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue. Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever…

But I have a name. Ngozi is alone in her house. She sits all alone in her well-furnished parlor, on a love sofa, reading a magazine. Beside her on a side table is a glass of red wine from which she sips. Her feet rests comfortably on a beautifully decorated ottoman. Her toenails are not painted, but are well-manicured, so are her fingernails. In front of her, a wide screen television shows a soap opera. The sound is tuned low so she can hear the dialogue as well as hear what is happening around her.  Calm and peace surround her, but not for long….

My chances of getting murdered or sold into a sex trafficking ring are pretty good, but I need the fifty bucks. Need might be overstating it, but she wanted to go to the concert and she didn’t have the money for the tickets. Her meager paycheck from her work-study job didn’t stretch much farther than covering the bare essentials. If she wanted any fun money, she had to find other ways to acquire it. She’d done it all: research studies, selling her plasma, modeling for art studio classes. Answering a jinky…

A kettle whistles. Sarah runs to make the lunchtime tea. “Thirty minutes and that’s all!” Mr. Denton barks at her as he hurries towards his production office, whacking his elbow on the filing cabinet as he slams the glass door shut. The shocked moment of quiet is replaced by the delicate clinking of brushes against glass jars, chairs scraping on the concrete floor, and the idle chatter of the doll painters on their way to the break room. Do you remember Denton’s Debby Dolls? The ones from the 1947 film “Ten Days Till my Birthday,” where Tammy James plays a little girl who got one for her birthday? Denton’s Debby…
