Grace Year – A Novel
The instant New York Times bestseller, a speculative YA thriller in the vein of The Hunger Games and The Power, is now in trade paperback.
No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden. In Garner County, girls are banished for their sixteenth year to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive.
Tierney James dreams of a better life―but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that there’s more to fear about the grace year than the brutal elements and the poachers in the woods.
Their greatest threat may very well be each other.
With sharp prose and gritty realism, Kim Liggett’s The Grace Year examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.

“Chevy Stevens is back and better than ever…Dark Roads is a chilling, pulse-pounding thriller that also tugs at the heartstrings. It’s everything you’ve come to love from a master of the psych thriller genre.”―New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica
The Cold Creek Highway stretches close to five hundred miles through British Columbia’s rugged wilderness to the west coast. Isolated and vast, it has become a prime hunting ground for predators. For decades, young women traveling the road have gone missing. Motorists and hitchhikers, those passing through or living in one of the small towns scattered along the region, have fallen prey time and again. And no killer or abductor who has stalked the highway has ever been brought to justice.
Hailey McBride calls Cold Creek home. Her father taught her to respect nature, how to live and survive off the land, and to never travel the highway alone. Now he’s gone, leaving her a teenage orphan in the care of her aunt whose police officer husband uses his badge as a means to bully and control Hailey. Overwhelmed by grief and forbidden to work, socialize, or date, Hailey vanishes into the mountainous terrain, hoping everyone will believe she’s left town. Rumors spread that she was taken by the highway killer―who’s claimed another victim over the summer.
One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek, where her sister Amber lived―and where she was murdered. Estranged from her parents and seeking closure, Beth takes a waitressing job at the local diner, just as Amber did, desperate to understand what happened to her and why. But Beth’s search for answers puts a target on her back―and threatens to reveal the truth behind Hailey’s disappearance…

In a post-pandemic society, how can brands adapt to the new age of marketing without alienating their customers or clients? How can companies remain relevant in an era where a TikTok influencer has more impact than a billion-dollar corporation?
The answer is to be human. In today’s fragmented and noisy digital ecosystem, more people appreciate the value of authentic marketing and an engaged community than the number of likes on a post or what their favorite brand has on sale. The End of Marketing revolutionizes the way brands, agencies and marketers should approach marketing to reach today’s consumers. Using lessons from celebrities including DJ Khaled, Kim Kardashian, Ja Rule and Kanye West, and organizations such as Marriott, Wendy’s, Airbnb, Zoom and others, this book teaches you the framework to help you reclaim organic engagement, develop strategies for engaging customers and become a marketing savage.
This fully updated second edition of The End of Marketing will teach you how to remain digitally relevant in a post-pandemic world where algorithms dominate, organic reach is dwindling and consumers don’t want to be sold to; they want to be engaged.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
#1 New York Times Bestseller – Over 2 million copies sold
In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—”not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about the experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
