Crossword puzzle enthusiast Pete Durante is a war dog trainer stationed near the Los Angeles Harbor during World War II. After he cracks an enemy code that helps end the war and saves millions of lives, he gets driven to suicide by a vengeful intelligence officer named Rip Greamer. To save his family from an even darker fate, Pete must follow his dog beyond the grave and into a purgatorial maze of tunnels beneath Los Angeles to solve one final puzzle.

Book Signing with Erin Aubry Kaplan

Erin Aubry Kaplan will be signing copies of her book Black Talk, Blue Thoughts, and Walking the Color Line: Dispatches from a Black Journalista on Sunday July 22nd from 12 - 2 p.m.

Los Angeles has had a ringside seat during the long last century of racial struggle in America. The bouts have been over money and jobs and police brutality, over politics and poetry and rap and basketball. Minimizing blackness itself has been touted as the logical and ideal solution to the struggle, but in Black Talk, Blue Thoughts, and Walking the Color Line Erin Aubry Kaplan begs to differ. With eloquence, wit, and high prose style she crafts a series of compelling arguments against black eclipse.

Here are thirty-three insightful and wide-ranging pieces of literary, cultural, political, and personal reporting on the contemporary black American experience. Drawn from the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly,, and elsewhere, this collection also features major new articles on President Barack Obama, black and Hispanic conflicts, and clinical depression. In each, Kaplan argues with meticulous observation, razor-sharp intelligence, and sparkling prose against the trend of black erasure, and for the expansion of horizons of the black American story.

Book Signing with Stephen Tako

Stephen Tako will be signing copies of his book Motivated to Act on Saturday July 21st from 1 - 3 p.m.

Motivated To Act was written to motivate creative-minded people to act upon their passions and dreams in life. It's also about the personal motivation and journey of the author to leave the corporate world and become an entertainer.

It's about discovering why people do the things they do and how many of us are stuck in a box, living a mediocre life. You will uncover relationships ending and the beginnings of new alliances formed to help you succeed with your goals. In this book, you will observe a society on drugs to escape or conform, and how to respect and take care of your own body.

Two of the ten chapters are about the fundamentals of acting in Hollywood and appeal to all audiences. Stephen has enlisted friends Susan Olsen “The Brady Bunch” and Jordana Capra “Amazon Women on the Moon” (and over 200 commercials) to contribute. You will learn some do’s and don’ts of being on a Hollywood set and how “Glamorous” everyone is in this industry.

This is the perfect book for any aspiring entrepreneur, inventor, performer or dreamer. It compliments Stephen’s motivational speaking seminars and will inspire you to make the changes needed to live a more fulfilling life.
