Announcing the 2018 Novel of the Year!


Our Novel of the Year, Editor’s Choice winner is are THE LAST DETECTIVE, a sci-fi noir that deftly meshes two genres and sets itself apart. While detective novels and sci-fi novels have been done, THE LAST DETECTIVE treads the line between the two niches and also hits home on a philisophical note. Meanwhile, our Reader’s Choice award goes to THE VATICAN CAMEOS, a Sherlock Holmes adventure.

Top Pick! Review of LAST EXIT TO MONTAUK by Phillip Vega

by Melody Delgado       Selected as a Top Pick!      

The story is extremely well-written, full of humor, heart, and a vulnerability that pulls the reader in from the very first page. Words that describe the story would be: Poignant. Deep. Moving. Heart-felt. Funny. Universal. Fans of John Green, Nick Hornby and romantic coming of age stories, will enjoy this look at the joys and pitfalls of first love.
