Crash Override

You've heard the stories about the dark side of the internet--hackers, #gamergate, anonymous mobs attacking an unlucky victim, and revenge porn--but they remain just that: stories. Surely these things would never happen to you.Zoe Quinn used to feel the same way. She is a video game developer whose ex-boyfriend published a crazed blog post cobbled together from private information, half-truths, and outright fictions, along with a rallying cry to the online hordes to go after her. They answered in the form of a so-called movement known as #gamergate--they hacked her accounts; stole nude photos of her; harassed her family, friends, and colleagues; and threatened to rape and murder her. But instead of shrinking into silence as the online mobs wanted her to, she raised her voice and spoke out against this vicious online culture and for making the internet a safer place for everyone.In the years since #gamergate, Quinn has helped thousands of people with her advocacy and online-abuse crisis resource Crash Override Network. From locking down victims' personal accounts to working with tech companies and lawmakers to inform policy, she has firsthand knowledge about every angle of online abuse, what powerful institutions are (and aren't) doing about it, and how we can protect our digital spaces and selves.Crash Override offers an up-close look inside the controversy, threats, and social and cultural battles that started in the far corners of the internet and have since permeated our online lives. Through her story--as target and as activist--Quinn provides a human look at the ways the internet impacts our lives and culture, along with practical advice for keeping yourself and others safe online.

Man Up!

Ross Mathews
Authors:
Ross Mathews

As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.Now, with his first book, Ross takes us inside his journey as a super-fan, revealing the most embarrassing and hilarious moments of his small-town life and big-city adventures. From learning to swear like a hardened trucker to that time in high school when had to face down the most frightening opponent of all (his girlfriend's lady bits), Ross holds nothing back. Oh, then there's his surprisingly shady past involving the cutest pair of plus-sized women's pajama bottoms, deliciously dangerous pot butter, and embezzled sandwiches. And, of course, how he's managed to turn an obsession with pop-culture into one-on-one interactions with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Tiffani-Amber Theissen, Madonna, Michelle Kwan, and countless more without ever having a single restraining order issued against him.Infused with Ross's trademark humor, unique voice, and total honesty, MAN UP! is a mission statement for anyone who doesn't fit the mold. His hasn't been the most traditional way to build a career in Hollywood, but Ross has somehow managed to make his mark without ever compromising who he is. He is as serious about this as he is about Golden Girls trivia: You don't need to change who you are to achieve your dreams (although there's nothing wrong with a makeover every now and then). You just need to Man Up!

Dragon Awakened

Jaime Rush
Authors:
Jaime Rush

Drawing on her love of the supernatural-and sexy, powerful heroes, Jaime Rush has crafted a new series, The Hidden. A place filled with dark magick, and the kinds of demons and monsters that haunt nightmares and fairy tales ... and it's right there, hidden behind the glamour and sunshine of Miami. Straddling the line between the normal world and the Hidden are Crescents, humans who hold a sliver of the essence of deities. Dragons, Angels, and magicians, Crescents walk the knife's edge, protecting both Mundanes and the existence of their magick, because to expose the Hidden means death. Never easy with bored and frustrated gods wreaking havoc on the humans they blame for tempting them. Or the other beings who bedevil. Or the dissention between the classes of Crescents. Their biggest challenge, though, is fighting the seductive lure of their magick, their bloodlust, and holding on to what makes them human.

Zoe Tamarin is a flight risk...literally. In her early thirties, this hot air balloon pilot has yet to spend more than a few years in any one place, earning her the nickname of "the tumbleweed" by her far more stable friends. There's a reason for that, however...a reason that Zoe hasn't ever told her best friends. They think it's the gypsy blood in Zoe's great aunt, Pasha Tamarin, that has kept the two women moving from town to town while Pasha raised Zoe and even after Zoe was as adult. The fact is, Pasha isn't really Zoe's aunt and they aren't just two ladies who love the next great adventure. Zoe was once lost in the foster system and to save her, Pasha "took" her and they've been careful never to set roots too deep ever since.Zoe and Pasha's latest move has them leaving Arizona to join Lacey and the other girls to help run the Casa Blanca resort in Barefoot Bay; Zoe is launching a hot air balloon ride business and hoping that the change of scenery will help her ailing old aunt.Zoe never plans to see Oliver Bradbury again, although she did run into him a year ago at a posh hotel in Naples, Florida. She assumed he was visiting and that he still lived in Chicago, where they'd met. Oliver, now a renowned oncologist known for his unorthodox and aggressive treatment of cancer, has moved to Naples permanently, and lives just on the other side of the causeway that leads to Barefoot Bay. When Zoe realizes her aunt is suffering from a rare, but she believes, treatable, cancer, they are stuck. Pasha is terrified to go to a doctor, certain that records prove that she essentially kidnapped Zoe as a little girl. But Zoe know Pasha has to get help and decides that Oliver owes her...and goes to him for help, off the books. It'll take a miracle for Pasha to survive...and another for Zoe and Oliver to find love again. But if you don't believe in miracles, how can you ever experience one?
