Keep Austin Weird: A Lesbian Superhero Love Story for Grown-Ups
by Mary Jane will be released on 14 February 2015. It will be available in paperback and e-reader formats. Here's the description from the book jacket:

Residents of Austin, Texas so value individualism, most (but not all!) of them rally around the phrase, "Keep Austin Weird." In the midst of that off-kilter vibe are two mildly weird kindergarten teachers, Eleanor Cooprider and Kim Park. One of them possesses a superpower and the other recognizes superpowers in others (and she can talk to plants, though they never answer). Once they share this super secret, their mutual attraction blossoms into love, and there is nothing weird about that.

To summarize this summary via the novel's lengthy subtitle (A Lesbian Superhero Love Story for Grown-Ups): Lesbian, because there are women loving women (but not a romance novel or erotica). Superhero, because of a single superpower (but not science fiction or fantasy). A Love Story - see Lesbian, above. And for Grown-Ups, because no one leaps tall buildings in a single bound or wears a crime-fighting onesie. But enough summarizing: please turn to Page 1 and read the subsequent pages sequentially. Thank you for your cooperation.

Saba (Sā-bə), the 2009 novel by Mary Jane, is available in paperback and e-reader formats.  Here's the description from the book jacket:  Aaron and Erin Sandkuhler visit exotic Saba. There they have the Perfect Day: the weather, the diving, the food, everything is perfect. When they return to Washington D.C. and find life lacking they decide another vacation is in order - a permanent vacation. They move to Saba to live in paradise. Of course, not even the Garden of Eden met such lofty expectations.

Fate by Mary Jane back cover text:

People have argued for millennia over what controls us, Fate or Free Will.  Well stop the presses and hold the phone because salvation lies within the book currently in your hands.  Join Christian Whitney as he makes the difficult transition from successful attorney to bumbling bank robber, along the way meeting the woman who is the answer to all his questions.  His companion on this quest is a childhood nemesis who reappears in his life at the worst possible time Ė or is it the best?  Over a single long weekend in Los Angeles our intrepid duo goes from Santa Monica to the Inland Empire, from the heights of Mt. Baldy to the depths of Disneyland, all the while intertwined in a fate they donít understand and making choices whose consequences they canít comprehend.  Start reading and youíll find the pages virtually turn themselves.
