When You’re a Stranger by Akash Justin Ovian

Rodney is an unemployed graduate who was recently evicted by his landlord. He believes his life is being crushed under the anxiety caused by his education loan. He finds comfort and strength in his chronic alcoholism and strongly holds on to his crystallized idea that love is nothing but a fancy word used by society to rationalize the raw animalistic drive of sexual attraction.

Prisha is a passionate street artist who relies on sensuality and marijuana to channel her creative energies. She is also a lesbian who is struggling to define her identity in an evolving but insensitive generation of human beings.

When these two people meet over a dangerous dance of whiskey and vodka, they begin to discover the complicated art of forgetting the past and ignoring the future. It doesn’t take long for their stubborn faith in the predictability of life to change into a painful pursuit of affection, belonging, and sexual identity.

Targeted Audience: 18-40

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I missed my train one winter morning when I was traveling from Indiana to Wisconsin. I noticed that there were five others who missed the train and were stranded in the station along with me. I suddenly noticed how alienated people are from each other. I came to see how disconnected we feel from strangers and how many times we miss such important opportunities to meet wonderful people in our lives. The entire novel came rushing into my mind as I managed to reach Wisconsin by the end of that day. I told myself that I will write something that can depict the adventures that people can find when they loosen themselves and open up to strangers.

Prescribed by D.D. Parker

REDESIGNED-PRESCRIBED-Cover-v3-FINAL-copyEmma Wells thought she had it all figured out. She went to college wanting a brand new lease on life, thinking she was going to become a doctor and make her mom proud. She just wasn’t planning on passing out her first day of volunteering at the hospital because she couldn’t handle the sight of blood.

After banging her head on the floor, she’s taken care of by Dr. Ryan Matthews, an unfairly hot specimen of a man. Even after waking up in a cloudy, post-concussion daze, she can’t take her eyes off of him and their chemistry is becoming undeniable.

Strong. Handsome. Charming.

Even that couldn’t encompass everything Ryan had to offer. There was just one problem; Emma already had a boyfriend.

One that would never let her go.

Ever.

Will Dr. Matthews still be able to prescribe Emma just what she needs or will Emma’s own demons come to threaten more than just their relationship?
