Putting out – by Laura Bray
How do you find Hope when she’s been completely lost? In a suburban town in the mid 90’s, things happen behind closed doors. But, in this town, what happens behind closed doors, stays behind them. How does Hope step forward when there’s no strength left to fight with? A story of resilience, quiet strength and the devastation that keeping quiet can cause. But in the end, hope shines through.

Aquatic Information by Wendy Luck

All is born from water. Genetic strands of aquatic information inspire an avant-garde pilgrimage through mystical terrain, roots and ancestral healing. 

Told through music, comedy, multimedia and unusual characters, we journey with child-like wonder to a philosophically quirky vision of personal discovery, evolution, and universal transcendence.

Happy Birthday, Dear Bobby by Madeleine Cartwright

 Happy Birthday, Dear Bobby is a coming of age story about a young woman facing a decision between the conventional pressures to start a family or to truly follow her heart. Bobby is not much different than the other 20 somethings of our generation feeling a little lost about what we really want in life. And in an age where women are pushed to “have it all,” (career, husband, kids) do we ever stop and wonder “do I really want ‘it all?'”

Bell Blu – by Rebekah L. Pierce

Bell Blu is a poor working girl in a small rural town with an 8th grade education who longs to be one her own. She is tired of living with her mother, Nicey, who insists that the only way Bell is ever going to leave home is married to a man who will take care of her, and her alcoholic, abusive step-father, Daddy Boss. Bell despises the whole idea of a woman needing a man to provide for her: just look at her best friend, Patience, who married young and is now pregnant with baby #4. Childhood friend, Bird, is in love with Bell, and would gladly give her the world, but he is everything Nicey wants for Bell. What Bell wants is to be free to be herself and she will do anything to get her freedom including creating a plan of escape through a fake marriage with the local town hoodlum, Doc. But things don’t go as planned, and Bell finds herself in an even more dangerous predicament that could cost her, her life and her freedom.
