"The Stork Reality"
By Malena Lott

What to expect when you’re expecting? For a career-driven couple that didn’t plan on having children, it’s a nine-month roller coaster ride.

Creative director Taylor Montgomery gets the surprise of her life when she finds out she’s pregnant the same day her best friend, Hilarie, finds out she’s not. Taylor never wanted to be a mom, but it’s all Hilarie has dreamed about. "The Stork Reality: Secrets from the Underbelly" updates the original novel about the journey to motherhood and how pregnancy changes marriage, work, and even close friendships. Taylor experiences the stork reality as she maneuvers the wild new world of moms-to-be and comes to terms with what it means to be a family.

This humorous, poignant novel will appeal to women and moms in all stages and celebrates that no two pregnancies, moms or approaches to motherhood are the same.

"The Stork Reality" is available for $2.99 on Kindle.

"Escape" By Barbara Delinsky

One Friday morning, New York lawyer Emily finds she needs to escape. Escape from a suffocating job and a personal life that just hasn’t turned out the way she expected it to. She suddenly realises that she barely sees her husband James, let alone gives them a chance to discuss their unsuccessful attempts to start a family and how they feel about it. She’s been living a life and going through the motions without pausing for breath or reflection, or to work out whether it is the direction she wants to go in.

She walks out of the office, switches off her phone, packs a bag and leaves. She doesn’t even tell James she is going. But when a new path leads her back to her past and an old lover, suddenly life seems more complicated rather than less. Is she carving out a new life for herself, and where does that leave her marriage and everything she has left behind? Sometimes we all need to escape from something, but for Emily, she needs to remember who she is and how she got there in the first place. Sometimes we don’t quite know why we’re escaping until we’ve found where we should be instead.
