Lillie Claire Glidden is unraveling. She knows she’s in trouble when she finds her wallet and keys deep in the refrigerator, smelling of lettuce and forgetfulness. Not even her favorite California red wine can dull the pain of the dreaded diagnosis: Alzheimer’s.
As her language starts to fail and words disappear, Lillie Claire is determined to find a way to pass on the lessons she learned as a child on a Southern porch. Surrounded by family and caregivers, she fights to hold on to the details of her life, and to recognize the woman in the mirror for as long as possible.
Told from Lillie Claire’s perspective, All the Dancing Birds offers a beautiful and terrifying look into the secret mind of those touched–and ultimately changed–by the mystery of Alzheimer’s disease.
Genre: romantic comedy
“Strand creates two endearing characters and infuses their relationship with an unexpected depth, humanity and tenderness, while managing to keep it grounded in reality with wicked humor.” — Examiner.com
From the “wickedly funny” Jeff Strand (says Publishers Weekly) comes a comedy about love, death, hot dogs, TV, and obscure fruit.
Thirty-five-year-old introvert Todd Bryan hasn’t really done much with his life, and he’s okay with that. Until, at a painfully bad film festival, he meets Amy Husk. She’s attractive. She’s funny. She’s quirky. And…she has an inoperable brain aneurysm and not much time to live. She may not even make it to the long-awaited final episode of EXIT RED, the Greatest. Show. Ever.
She convinces him that they should do something crazy and frivolous. And suddenly Todd, a guy who doesn’t do spontaneity, is on an insane road trip from Florida to Rhode Island with a woman he barely knows, just to visit a really cool hot dog place.
Many things will go wrong. But, hey, many things will go right, too. There’s a hook-handed hitchhiker and some property destruction. Maybe some sex. A kumquat will probably be relevant at some point, although not during the sex (if there is any).
A laugh-out-loud comedy, a touching love story, and a cross-country adventure, KUMQUAT is a story about making the most out of the time you’ve got.
If that doesn’t interest you, there’s also a gummi bear tractor.

Burning Eagle is about a Transhumanist society that goes to war. Hard science fiction readers of Alastair Reynolds’ Revelation Space, James S. A. Corey’s Expanse, or the Mass Effect universe, should consider it. Readers who appreciate Dan Abnett and John Scalzi’s military science fiction, will also not go wanting.
