From the author of Gillis Huckabee comes Sean Conway's powerful first collection of short stories. In storySouth Magazine's Million Writer's Award-nominated "Scratch," a divorced man tries to control a raging breakout of poison ivy while his personal life erupts violently out of control. In "Ashes, Ashes" an unemployed laborer is unable to look forward, so consumed by his role in devastating events of the past. And in "January Thaw" a single mother struggles to let go of the life she once envisioned for the uncharted path of her present when her recently-widowed father moves in with her and her young son. Despite its title, The Slowpoke's Guide to Getting It Right is not, in fact, a guide. It is not a how-to book. If anything, these stories combine to form a how-not-to guide. Sean Conway's characters distract themselves from facing truths; they blame others for their own tragic decisions; they find themselves suddenly unprepared, face-to-face with life situations that they should have seen coming a mile away, but, like many of us, missed. Like many of us-perhaps even all of us-they're slowpokes.

A brilliant new life in seven easy-to-follow steps. What could possibly go wrong? At twenty-four, Megan Riley has a boring job and a humdrum life. Then she stumbles across a magazine article called "How to Be a Confident Woman." Her flatmate, Zara, thinks it's daft, but Megan is certain that this list is her path to a more exciting future. Clearing the chocolate stash out of her desk and investing in good lingerie are simple enough. It's the part about asking out a guy who's way out of her league that's a disaster waiting to happen. Liam Wiseman is gorgeous, funny and…totally not into Megan. It's almost enough to drive her into the arms of the "successful London lawyer" Megan's mum has picked out for her. Almost. As Megan strides boldly from one misadventure to the next, she discovers that being a strong, independent woman doesn't mean wearing an expensive bra or learning to make a chicken curry. True confidence means being herself—and being herself might just result in finding love along the way.

Sexed (Sex’d) - Hardwired by Nature –Evolving by Choice is a first of a kind book, about the sexual hardwiring of the heterosexual male. While shining a spotlight on some of the predicaments of heterosexual male sexuality, it takes a deep archeological dive into the meeting place of sex, consciousness, biology and intimacy .In so doing it offers a granular look at the impact of our sexual hardwiring on our lived experience as men, far beyond comedy and caricature or the superficial conversations society has thus far offered us. Sexed – offered both as a reference for therapists and a personal study guide for the curious and evolving, and brings the reader closer to a more crystalized sense of sexual self-agency, access to intimacy and the opportunity to continue to bring the best possible version of himself to his relationship and the world. Of course women readers can benefit too by gaining insight into the development and inner workings of the heterosexual man’s mind and a broader understanding as to why the hardwiring and its impact has proven to be somewhat trans historical and transcultural .
