Denver Chalmers thought his world completely collapsed when his twin brother, Deiken, committed suicide.

Will a chance meeting at the cemetery be the first step toward his salvation?


Jett Dawson shared Denver's view of the world. Deiken had been his everything, but their seemingly perfect relationship hid a multitude of problems. Jett won't forget about his past, but he's ready to move forward. He's always had a crush on Denver and although he's been told its wrong, he wants Denver in his life on a romantic level. Will their common ground and mutual desire lead to disaster or something they both need?

Losing his brother leaves rocker Jace Christenson struggling to understand how it happened, and what he can do to open the door to conversation about suicide and mental illness.


Losing his brother leaves rocker Jace Christenson struggling to understand how it happened, and what he can do to open the door to a conversation about suicide and mental illness. A trip to visit an old friend who runs the tattoo parlor where he got his first tattoo soon nets him a conversation piece, in the form of a semi-colon tattoo, but the pain of grief is still overwhelming. Reconnecting with his band is an obstacle he's not sure he can overcome. It takes some time away with best friend and fellow bandmate Troy Paulus to finally get him to open up and accept that the things he's feeling are normal parts of the healing process. And if along the way, the two grow even closer, than that's just a bonus right?

Take a Pause #3
By Albert Nothlit

Nathan was hard to be with, sure, but why did he jump?


It's awful when someone takes their own life. Senseless. Sad. Nathan was a troubled guy, kind of a loner, with only one friend. Me. And now he's gone.


Maybe writing what I remember will help me understand, so I can get over this. Because I can't shake off the terrible feeling that it was my fault.
