Go-getter Ariel Anderson is back in Bliss, West Virginia. She's got to shoot a TV spot, and undo her (undeserved) wild-child reputation. But there's something downright sexy happening in Bliss. And inexplicably, Ariel aches to be more naughty than nice. Especially after colliding with Rex Houston, the hottest CDC virus-chasing "cowboy" this side of the mountains. He's testing the local spring for a love bug dubbed "Romeo" that's reputed to cause sexual mayhem for seven straight days. For the first time in sixty years, Bliss is going "buggy." Romantic songs on the radio. Restaurant breakfast specials for two. The whole town is under some spell. Now Rex and Ariel are testing some steamy waters of their own.

SOMETHING IN THE WATER a new Thriller series.A scientist and his potentially lethal discovery are missing. Was he kidnapped or complicit in a terrorist plot to murder millions? Book One: "Drowning" follows Charles Burns and a newly formed unit of the Metropolitan Police as they search for a missing scientist who has developed a potent new vaccine and radical mass-delivery method. He and his formula have disappeared completely in what appears to be two coordinated and highly sophisticated operations. Little is known about the scientist, but his work has attracted the attention of more than just the Health Ministry. An unknown terrorist organization, recently active in the London area, may be connected to the disappearance. It's unclear who knows that the formula has a fatal flaw, and could become a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. The Unit's first mission is to find the scientist and his deadly bioweapon, and stop the terrorists from committing genocide. They must act quickly and quietly, and MCU2 has been put together by Detective Chief Inspector John Wayne to do just that: Act quickly, under the direct authority of The Home Office, and quietly, to avoid a panic spreading through the media. But there is little time before that, or worse, happens.

One day begins, much like any other, for a girl called Rose, but soon strange things start happening for her and her best friend, Lilly. It may have something to do with the river that runs through the valley below her castle or it may simply be because children can't help walking through mysterious doors, pressing tempting buttons, ignoring warning notices, messing with magic and generally being too curious for their own good. Whatever the reason, a school trip turns into a breathless adventure across time and space and through the elements of earth, air, fire and water ... especially water. There must be something in the water. One Big Story is a project run by Off The Page Drama to help children get excited about reading and writing, to inspire their creativity and to give them greater confidence in their ideas.

Dr Bob Strong's GP surgery has been treating a lot of coughs and colds recently, far more than is normal for the time of year. Bob thinks there's something up but he can't think what. He seems to have caught it himself, whatever it is - he's starting to cough badly and there are flecks of blood in his hanky. Saskia Harden has been found on a number of occasions submerged in ponds or canals but alive and seemingly none the worse for wear. Saskia is not on any files, except in the medical records at Dr Strong's GP practice. But Torchwood's priorities lie elsewhere: investigating ghostly apparitions in South Wales, they have found a dead body. It's old and in an advanced state of decay. And it is still able to talk. And what it is saying is 'Water hag'... Featuring Captain Jack Harkness as played by John Barrowman, with Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato and Ianto Jones as played by Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Naoki Mori and Gareth David-Lloyd, in the hit science fiction series created by Russell T Davies for BBC Television.

Willoughby's Wildlife Story Books Series This book of short stories is part of an educational project designed to facilitate 'kids teaching kids' about local wildlife in the Willoughby area. Year 5 classes at each primary school in the Willoughby City LGA were asked to focus on their local 'water catchment' and the wildlife that depends on it. Then they shared their knowledge by writing a short story on a particular animal and reading it to a younger student. Every school that participated in the project has short stories and or artwork published in this compilation book, which is part of a collection of story books held at local and school libraries across Willoughby. This year Willoughby's stories on catchments and wildlife will go to schools and libraries across the Sydney region with the help of special funding from The Greater Sydney Local Land Services. Thus spreading the conservation message further.

Olympic rowers Gary and Paul O’Donovan may be the face of Irish rowing and Skibbereen Rowing Club, and have enormously increased the popularity of rowing in Ireland, but they're just one piece of a much larger jigsaw. Without their club and the people behind the scenes, they wouldn’t be Olympic silver medalists, 2018 world champions, former European champions and, in Paul's case, a three-time world champion. Almost one hundred Skibbereen Rowing Club athletes have represented Ireland at various regattas over the years; a staggering figure when viewed in light of the size of the club. Founded in 1970, it is now the undisputed most successful rowing club in the country, producing five Olympic rowers since 2000 and four world champions between 2016 and 2018. It is the characters involved in the club, the coaches, members and the athletes themselves, who come together to make Skibbereen Rowing Club what it is. Something in the Water reveals what goes on behind the scenes to create an environment that allows locals to excel on the national and international stages. The story is told through the people and families involved, showing how relatable they are to people around the country.
