2016 SHELF AWARENESS BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR IN NONFICTION
AMAZON BEST SELLER IN LGBT, TRANSGENDER, AND HUMOR
Changing your gender from female to male takes balls. And if you’re going to do it in front of five hundred coworkers at the largest ad agency in Boston, you’d better have a pretty big set!
At a time when the term transgender didn’t exist, and with support from family, friends, and a great therapist, Chris Edwards endured 28 surgeries to become the person he always knew he was meant to be. He used the principles of marketing along with his ever-present sense of humor to rebrand himself and orchestrate what was quite possibly the most widely accepted and embraced gender transition of its kind. He’s a pioneer who changed the perception of an entire community, and his memoir, BALLS, will touch readers’ hearts and change quite a few minds.
Edwards is funny, brazen, and endearing, and BALLS is a hilarious and inspiring story about family, friends, and the courage to be your true self. It boldly and fearlessly goes where other trans memoirs don’t. If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable in your own skin-for whatever reason-you will be inspired and empowered by this book.
A portion of the proceeds of BALLS will be donated to Camp Aranu’tiq (camparanutiq.org), a nonprofit program serving transgender youth and their families.

“As a huge fan of Downton Abbey, I was a little nervous of comparing too much, Meredith Allard writes such an engaging tale that my worry soon subsided. This story was humorous, smart, and offered the reader well developed characters that made for a page turner. I found myself quickly moving through the book. It has the perfect combination of romance, mystery, and charm.” — Amazon Reviewer

Momentary Stasis (The Rimes Trilogy Book 1), by P R Adams. (Still free?)
“I’ve really enjoyed this book! It’s one of the best military sci-fi novels I’ve read in a very long time. The author has created a gritty world, with no easy solutions to the problems facing us today. It’s a dark future, showing what may happen as the current economic trends continue and resources become more constrained.” — Amazon Reviewer
World peace can be deadly.
Humans discover alien technology and start colonizing worlds outside the solar system. Genetic modification produces miracles. Science advances the human condition. And, for the first time in history, the nations of the world have achieved real peace with each other.
But only the elite truly benefit from all the advancements. Most people are still trapped on an Earth ruined by chemical pollution, nuclear accidents, and chaotic weather changes. Rebellious “genies”–genetically engineered servants–cause more harm than good. And global corporations have stripped the idea of nations and freedom of any real meaning.
Sergeant Jack Rimes is no stranger to intrigue. The U.S. Army Special Forces operator lives in a time where every nation on Earth is at peace… but there are plenty of secrets to go around. As corporate greed threatens humanity, genetically engineered humans are making international mayhem of their own.
After his unplanned reassignment to the Intelligence Bureau, Jack is tasked with tracking down a rogue agent implicated in a political assassination. As he and his new partner, an old flame, search the globe for answers, the truth shakes him to his core. The powers-that-be may not be very interested in keeping humanity alive…
Momentary Stasis is the first book in a provocative series of grimdark military sci-fi novels full of intrigue, horror, and action that unflinchingly explores the impact of technology and unbridled greed on humanity. If you like gritty, flawed protagonists, tech-heavy thrillers, and incredible new worlds, then you’ll love the first installment from PR Adams’ provocative new series.
