The Spudfields and McTaters are in a feud! In Taters of the Ozarks, author Deanna Harris, with vivid imagination and clever wit, introduces the Spudfields and McTaters, families not unlike others—except that they're potatoes. And what makes these families of taters stand out? In a unique, flowing poetic style, Deanna Harris recounts their heated, epic hostility. Even though the struggle began many years ago, these families attempt to hold their grudges until the end—but can they? In this touching story of forgiveness and family, a young spud from each family dares to fall in love. Tempers flair and any hope of reconciliation appears to be impossible. However, when faced with an outside enemy that could destroy them all, the Spudfields and McTaters must band together if they are to have any chance of survival.

Books featured at this Festival:
Speakers and Kings is the first book by M. Keaton. Dedicated to the men and women of the United States of America’s Armed Forces who put their lives on the line every day to protect our freedoms.
An epic fantasy tale of war and cultural strife, while the book is heavily underscored with the themes of military virtues of duty and honor, it is equally influenced by the concerns of language and its influence on society and the individual. Speakers and Kings may well be the first serious meeting of language and high fantasy since the works of Tolkien. The Prologue and first section of the book can be previewed below along with the full color map of Qaiyore which could not be included in the book.
Calamity's Child A Novel of the Frontier: The man who brought you the fantasy epic Speakers and Kings turns his attention to the future, delivering space opera with rare depth. On the edge of the Human Hegemony lies the Frontier—the rough and tumble worlds where the law is spread too thin and the only real government is what people chose for themselves (usually none). Yet despite the danger, there is also freedom and the infinite possibility of redemption. Loyalty is the watchword and a man is as good as his word. No more, no less.
Against the background of mankind's future expansion into space, Calamity's Child follows a young orphan and the family that grows around her as they struggle, internally and externally, to find their place in the Frontier...and insure no one takes it from them.
Originally released as a series in Ray Gun Revival magazine, Calamity's Child is finally available under one cover and can be purchased from most disreputable bookstores or the (reputable) publisher Double Edged Publishing.
