The Glitter Effect
by Timothy Lewis
Solving a major university’s bicycle theft case will make Hal Tanner a winner, unless failure first proves … deadly.
Hal Tanner vows to be the best sixth grade skateboarder, matching the accomplishments of his older brother, Rick—the newspaper editor at Southern State University. When Rick invites Hal and his best friend, Jerry, to spend a week on campus, dozens of bicycles disappear. Hal and Jerry investigate, skateboarding into the dark underworld of cutthroat thieves. After the boys befriend Wiley—a decorated American soldier injured in the war in Afghanistan—Hal discovers the true meaning of success. But can his new found knowledge save his life, and Jerry’s, before it’s too late?

Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings after the estate sale.
He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, untouched by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters-six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders’ love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and unsettled by the depth of commitment that he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.
Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early 20th century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple – Gabe and Pearl Alexander – are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe’s poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other.
Could the secrets of their love affair, one laid to rest twenty years before, hold the key to one man’s future?
