About A Year of Mr. Lucky:
When Meg Weber––a recently divorced, queer, single parent––realizes she's ready to date again, she comes across the profile of Mr. Lucky. He's a smart dominant with similar interests, but not all goes as planned. In her memoir, A Year of Mr. Lucky, Meg takes us through her journey of erotic encounters, pain and pleasure, explorations of self-worth, submission, yearning, and healing.
"This book is a political act where the story of desire, loss, power, pleasure, pain and standing up take on phenomenal new meanings." –– Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water
“I could gush on the million, inspiring, literary feats Meg Weber has pulled off in this memoir—but I’ll highlight her authorial eye. Weber never flinches but writes into the messiness of being alive, with hard won painful poignancy. She’s the real deal." — Joshua Mohr, author of Sirens

About Model Citizen:
After years of hard-won sobriety, while rebuilding a life with his wife and young daughter, Joshua Mohr suffers a stroke at the age of thirty-five—his third, it turns out—which uncovers a heart condition requiring surgery. And fentanyl, one of his myriad drugs of choice. This forced “freelapse” should fix his heart, but what will it do to his sobriety? And what if it doesn’t work? Told in stunning, surreal, time-hopping vignettes, Model Citizen is a raw, revealing portrait of an addict. Mohr shines a harsh spotlight into all corners of his life, throwing the wild joys, tragedies, embarrassments, and adventures of his past into bold relief. A darkly beautiful, funny, incisive confession, Model Citizen is brimming with hope and resilience, drawing the universal and human out of every moment.
