Hello everyone, Les here.

When it comes to writing, many of us pursue more than one avenue, but a book is the stuff dreams are made of. Whether it's via a traditional publisher or through self-publishing avenues, these creators are getting their words in print and up for sale! Here's a short list from those VSS members you know and love.

LIGHT and Darkness: One person can change the course of the world

By: A. M. Radulescu

A Raging War, a Hidden World. And a Reluctant Heroine

Light and Darkness: A Spiritual Urban Fantasy

Workaholic Ana, alongside her loving boyfriend Andru and their fluffy companion Ron, spends her days striving for perfection. With the help of Light Bringer she’s working to overcome her anxiety, attempting to feel as calm as everyone thinks she is. All while navigating the demanding restructuring of her department and putting out the figurative fires that come with it.

THERE WAS NO WARNING OF THE UPCOMING EVENTS THAT WERE TO CHANGE HER LIFE FOREVER

Two Sides of the Same Coin (4 book series)

By: Natasja Rose

From Book 1: It wasn't Jason's fault that his father's Ultimate Sacrifice hadn't resulted in Martyrdom, but in a Villainous reputation. His classmates were intent on punishing him for it regardless.

It wasn't Evanna's fault that she had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and wound up with Superpowers a la toxic waste. She was forced into Superhero Training anyway.

It wasn't Stretch's fault that his teachers focused more on using his powers than on the ethics of doing so. Sidekicks had to do what Superheroes told them to, and why shouldn't he use his powers to get what he wanted?

In a world where Superpowers are common, and those gifted with them a facet of everyday life, the lines between Hero and Villain are not always so easily drawn.

As though being a teenager wasn't hard enough!

Becoming Super Humans

By: Soleira Green & Santari Green

Are you discovering you have super powers? Do you have an itch to contribute to the world in some way? Are you called to be a part of a greater becoming for life on Earth?

In July 2020 my husband, Santari Green, and I set out to write our next book together. It's called 'Becoming Super Humans', a state of being that we have been striving to achieve (with success) over the last 25 years. To write the book, we created a free and open Facebook group where we post chapters as we write them along with live videos to dive further into the topics which include things like infinite intelligence, super powers, limitless vitality, youthening, becoming world shapers, sourcing evolutionary leaps and more.

Stress Test

By: Alan Gold

"Sandy Skinner and Billey Elwood have nothing—and everything—in common. She's a math prodigy and a young mother struggling against a male-dominated world that doesn't add up. He's the son of a petty thief with a mad plan to make one big heist that will set him up for life. Each of them tries to shield something precious from the brute forces that have toyed with their lives. Sandy and Billey's parallel stories converge—like railroad tracks on the horizon—with the appearance of a stranger whose own inscrutable scheme may change their lives forever. Stress Test is a 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist."

Starting in the Middle of The End

Penny, Mae and Dawn are suspended in a world of silence and fear, waiting to be rescued and reunited with their mother--or to die. Penny tells a story of uncommon bravery--something children often possess but which is nearly always overlooked by grownups. Left with the task of seeing that her younger sisters are well fed and safe during a time of turmoil, Penny rises to the challenge in spite of her fears. Discover the end of the world as we know it and the beginnings of what could become."

Owl in a Towel

By: Lesley Leatherdale (Call Me Les)

"Meet Owl: a genderless, preschool-aged bird from an interspecies family with a flair for multi-functional fabric! As the young owlet shows us how to think ‘beyond the bath’, one would incorrectly assume that life with a towel is ‘owlways’ a breeze, but the story hits a snag when a new baby arrives with a towel of their own. Empathize with Owl as they recount the tumultuous highs and lows of learning to be a big sibling, culminating in the mind-shattering moment Owl realizes that compared to Baby’s new towel, Owl’s beloved companion is clearly not cut from the same cloth!

Owl’s story is a timeless reminder that challenges, just like towels, are all about how you interpret them."
