A Danger to Himself and Others: Bomb Squad NYC Incident 1
A disabled veteran explodes into bloody pieces in the middle of Times Square. Days later, a second man blows himself up in Brooklyn.
Are these the first attacks in a wave of terrorism that could bring New York City to its knees? Or is there a psychotic murderer on the loose, executing a twisted plan for his own hidden motives?
Detective Manny Diaz–also a veteran, and the newest member of the NYPD Bomb Squad–doesn’t yet know the answer. But he desperately wants to exonerate an honorable man who now lies dead.
By day, I manage The Hole Punch, and it isn’t as sexy as it sounds. It’s an office supply store–not an establishment for vibrators and butt plugs. By nighttime though, that’s when I unleash an exciting passion of mine–one that I’m not prepared to share just yet.
I don’t have the time or the energy for a relationship right now. Besides, sex with colleagues is always a bad idea. Now, sex with customers? That’s something I can get on board with, especially since Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome keeps showing up and setting my insides on fire.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame—she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer. But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.
Notorious RBG, inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg’s family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well an interview with the Justice herself.
