this July from Vagabondage Press.
Are you ready for a new kind of zombie? The kind that isn't mindless? The kind that's hungry for much more than just flesh?

Wormfood Island is coming soon and if you like zombies you're going to love taking a bite out of these - get ready for Wormfood Island.

"LaSalle’s handling of this
hard-to-classify story is masterful. He takes us from Alex’s
sometimes fumbling attempts to develop something akin to human
emotions to Stephanie’s efforts to decide with whom she wants to
spend her life. At times achingly funny, and at times depressing
beyond words, this is the kind of story you read when it’s chilly
outside and the wind’s rattling the window panes. A story of
magic—the kind you find in fantasy stories and the kind you find
inside the human heart—it’ll keep you turning pages and chuckling."

When we dream of what our lives can hold, we should always dream with open eyes. We should always be aware of the pitfalls before us but, more importantly, we should open our eyes to the dangers that exist should we lack the courage to pursue our dreams. Once we understand our options, we'll be better suited to do what we need to do to find happiness in our lives. Dreaming with Open Eyes is Ken La Salle's third collection of essays from the pages of Recovering the Self. As he shares his journey in the pursuit of his dreams, he spotlights the dangers and opportunities in the journey ahead of all of us. Only when we open our eyes can we see the truth of our lives. Dreaming with Open Eyes shows us just what riches our dreams and our lives can hold.You can pick up Dreaming With Open Eyes in ebook, audiobook, and paperback by clicking this link!

Write an essay every month about pursuing your dreams? Heck, it was a struggle every day just for me to keep believing in mine. And yet, that is how this book began. I began writing an essay every month about pursuing your dreams for the fine folk at Recovering The Self (www.recoveringself.com) and an amazing thing happened: I felt it help me pursue mine! I hope the essays in this book, encompassing the first year of essays in Recovering The Self (along with a little bonus material), help you get a little closer to yours.Pick up your copy of The Worth of Dreams The Value of Dreamers in ebook, paperback, and audiobook today just by clicking this link!

Jackson is just a Wal-Mart worker from Los Angeles, far too caught up in the apathy of modern life to believe in anything. After spending one night with the daughter of a wood nymph and the man who surrendered his arm for the woman he loved, the lithesome beauty named Mari, Jackson knows he believes. And he knows he'll do anything to find her again. He follows her up the coast of California and a polar bear drives the taxi. Into the forest and through frozen mountains, he talks to God and creatures of faerie alike but the final confrontation is with the mother whose people have been wiped out by mankind. They were wiped out the same way humanity is wiping itself out, with greed and disregard. Daughter is more than just a simple love story because it also poses this question to the listener: Is love really possible? Can human beings really love each other? How is it possible for parents who pollute the world they're leaving behind to say they love their children? How can we say we look out for each other, even as we divert our eyes to the homeless we see every day? For, if love isn't possible, how can Jackson really say he loves Mari? Faced with proof after proof that it doesn't exist, Jackson's only hope is to somehow prove otherwise. Daughter of a One-Armed Man is lush with impossible discoveries and words of hope for the future, beautifully scored with the Josh Woodward song, Don't Close Your Eyes.
