Existential Fiction-Ex Parte-a new book from Sheli Ellsworth

BeachHouse Books publishes original, select literary works and contemporary thought. Some of our books don't fit mass distribution channels, but we produce them because they are thought provoking, provocative in general, or sometimes just for the fun of it. Many of our books are "controversial" perhaps "irreverent,” but all of them are intended to improve relationships and the state of the human spirit.

Everyone has a beach house, if only in the mind, where you step out of the everyday, settle down in the warming sun, and think thoughts that enable you to deal with life and envision your purpose in different way.

BeachHouse Books are the kind of books that fit the beach house part of your mind, for fun reading, and perhaps that's where they were written.
