It all began with a simple dream. An ambitious young environmental scientist hoped to establish a sustainable farm on a small patch of river-bottom land nestled among the Mississippi hills. Jay Mize convinced his wife Sandy to move their six-year-old son away from town and to a rich and lush parcel where Jacob could run free and Jay could pursue the dream of a new and progressive agriculture for the twenty-first century. He did not know that within a year he’d be ruined, that flood and pestilence would invade his fledgling farm or that his wife and son would leave him to pick up the pieces by himself.


When Jay Mize discovers a corpse on his property, he is sure his bad luck has come to a head and he is being framed. Were Jay in his right mind, he might have reported the body to the police at the very same moment they were searching for a missing tourist from Ohio. He might have not dragged the body back to his farm under the cover of night and spent hours disposing of it. But Jay Mize is not in his right mind. His mounting paranoia is accelerated by a hot-rod local deputy, nosing around with questions about the missing tourist and making dark comments about Jay’s estranged wife Sandy. It’s enough to make an honest man a maniac… 
Jamie Kornegay discusses and signs his book, Soil. Michael Pitre, author of Fives and Twenty-Fives, will interview with Jamie following the reading.
This book is available in hardcover ($26.00).

How can you have a rich and fulfilling life? The choices you make, not your income or financial assets, are the most powerful determining factor for your quality of life. Women have never had so many options. Yet we often experience a kind of paralysis, an unconscious willingness to follow societal dictates rather than become the CEOs of our own lives. When we mindlessly follow the dots, we smother our innate gifts and miss opportunities to fulfill our true potential. There is another way—choosing to live a simply luxurious life.

This book will show you how to invest your time and what to eliminate from your life. It will enable you to:

• Design a life of purpose that is aligned with your passions and talents

• Become financially independent

• Enjoy cultivating a healthy mind and body

• Build and maintain strong, loving relationships

• Create a chic, timeless signature style

• Design a comfortable home that is a true sanctuary

• Travel in comfort and style

• Discover simple pleasures that make each day something to look forward to 

You can curate the life of your dreams by being purposeful and selective, no matter where you live, your income, or your relationship status. Luxury and true fulfillment are ours for the having if we know where to look and how to make the right choices.

Shannon Ables discusses and signs her book, Choosing the Simply Luxurious Life: A Modern Woman's Guide.
