http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00VXTI2FM

After a series of disturbing nightmares with three publishers (publisher folding, agent retiring, publisher vanishing, publisher turning out to be a cult, etc) it's been a bit of a thriller in its own right. However, I have reacquired the rights to my romantic suspense thriller novel, Hold On!, and I am setting up a giveaway of the book on Amazon between May 25th and 29th. I would like the campaign to plug the book during this time. This is to commemorate the release of my sequel, Go! - Hold On! Season 2 on May 30th.

Upon its original release last year, Hold On! reached Amazon's top 50 bestsellers (#43), and received a five star rating from former TV news anchorman and bestselling thriller writer, Jim Brown. It currently holds an average 4.3 rating on Amazon US and 4.7 on Amazon UK.

A Fistful of Clones - a sci fi/general fiction novel by Seaton Kay-Smith

http://www.amazon.com/A-Fistful-Clones-Seaton-Kay-Smith-ebook/dp/B00S47T19C

Australian stand-up comedian and writer, Seaton Kay-Smith first wrote “A Fistful of Clones” as a screenplay that received an “Honourable Mention” in the 2011 Sundance: Table Read My Screenplay Competition. He decided in the summer of 2013/2014 to turn it into a book.

The hero of “A Fistful of Clones”, Henry Madison is an apathetic and immature young man who needs to find physical and inner strength in order to destroy his clones.  Although Henry eventually learns from his experiences, this is not a simple morality tale — though it could be described as an ethics’ one for future times—rather, it is also a fast-paced and darkly amusing story.  “A Fistful of Clones” will appeal not only to fans of sci fi but also to those who enjoy reflecting on what it is that makes you who you are. Is it your genetics or your experiences? The old ‘nature versus nurture’ conundrum—and the book entertains as it’s resolved!

Koeur’s Book Reviews: I read this in one sitting. GET IT! 4.4/5

onlinebookclub.org (Jesska6029): I give “A Fistful of Clones” 4 out of 4 stars.

SFBook.com (Allen Stroud): “A Fistful of Clones” is a great read that makes a tricky topic accessible, humorous and thought provoking.

Vortex Travelers: Sovereigns and Unwed Sailors - a science fiction time travel adventure by J. L. Holtz

http://www.amazon.com/Vortex-Travelers-Sovereigns-Unwed-Sailors-ebook/dp/B00V95I3T0

Vortex Travelers: Sovereigns and Unwed Sailors by J. L. Holtz

The spirit of the unknown within the cosmic connection definably did not fit in with the reality laid upon me. However, flying by the seat of my pants works in my favor now. Sort of…

My father went MIA, and I was drafted. Shanghaied onto to a mystery warship underway in the Phantom Fleet of the United States Navy and plunged through a vortex chamber-- straight into an interplanetary odyssey, to complete my assigned mission and engage in a perilous clash in an epic, ancient, cosmic war between gods and brothers.

Placed on a trajectory course into the unknown, with the Earth's future hanging in the balance, I’m not sure what my mission actually is, I’m not sure who I am, or what I am? Am I Lulu Wu, a failing college student, or Wu Lu, or Ricky Wu, or am I a Taoist wizard and a cosmic sovereign, or just an alien?

I thought I knew it all and when your whole life becomes an amnesic mystery, what are you to do? Believe what you are being told?

It may be scary to make everything up as you go along, but my current adaptability enables me to take advantage of each new moment as it arises. This is my story and I stand to the call.

5 star Amazon Review

A mind blowing adventure into a Sci Fi world that may be actually already happening.

The uncanny realism of this adventure is beautifully articulated by a young voice, so honest, so vulnerable and yet so powerful, is a feat of extraordinary writing brilliance and boldness. You are instantly in the head, heart and soul of the main character and each fluctuating emotion she experiences are yours like it or not. The science reads so real you would swear that there is no fiction. This is a mind-blowing adventure into a Sci Fi world that may be actually already happening. You want this rich plot to never to end and want even more to stay with the character into the next adventure, just because you know it will be more then worthwhile. J L Holtz is a writer to pay very close attention to - I will be. Highly recommended. Amazon Review by Marina Martins

The Blue Harp Curse - A short fantasy story by Michael Sanderson

http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Harp-Curse-Michael-Sanderson-ebook/dp/B00UR39IT4

The Blue Harp Curse is a short story intended to be the first of others detailing the lives of various members of a large fantasy cities' guards and their daily and nightly duties and problems. I am using this one city and it's guards and their lives as a sort of "practice run" to go on to other much bigger things.

I always found the guards of any fantasy setting to be interesting, and usually overlooked in most fantasy stories. These poor guys go up against so many terrible things and are almost always out-matched in the stories you read, you can't help but feel bad for them.

In The Blue Harp Curse you meet two members of the nightwatch who are tracking down a serial killer, hoping to get him before he strikes again. However, what they walk into may wind up a bit too much for them.

The city in which this story takes place, as well as some outlying areas, will become more of a character as we go along as well.

Born to Run, Love to Be Free - a young adult novel by Daris Howard

http://amzn.com/B00I9GDI5Q

Free on Kindle April 28-30, 2015.

Born to Run, Live to Be Free is a wonderful young adult story based on the life of real race horse whose fame was growing quickly.  But because of his fame, he lost his freedom.  The personality of this horse at times seems almost human.  You will find yourself sensing what he feels and, perhaps, discovering something about yourself and your own challenges in life.

Some Reviews:
I wholeheartedly recommend Born to Run, Live To Be Free” by Daris Howard. I couldn’t put it down! First of all, it’s a story about an amazing horse. It is also a love story. In addition, I found the details about taking care of a horse to be fascinating. Finally, it teaches the reader to live to be free and never give up. -- Jack Weyland (Author)

Born to Run, Live To Be Free is amazing.  It’s the perfect book for horse lovers, but has so many different emotions, all the way from hilarious to crying in my room because it’s so sad.  However it is a book you just can’t put down and have to read to the end.  If I had to rate this book from 0 to 5 I would give it an 8.  So if you love horses, you would love this book.  Kaylynn (age 11)

Sisters of Sorrow - a YA Horror novel by Axel Blackwell

http://www.amazon.com/Sisters-Sorrow-Axel-Blackwell-ebook/dp/B00VZO2242

Sisters of Sorrow is on sale for .99 until the end of April.

Warning: Violent convent, reader discretion advised. This story contains sadistic nuns, morally ambiguous witches, unhinged orphans, and an industrious living dead thing.

Anna Dufresne is a child laborer in a turn of the century shoe factory, hidden away in the foggy, brooding coastal islands of Washington State. The factory, which doubles as an orphanage, is run by the Catholic Church and serves as a dumping ground – both for orphans who are not welcome at finer institutions, and for nuns who have disgraced the church. The walls of Saint Frances du Chantal’s Orphan Asylum hum with secrets and buried scandal.

Since her arrival five years ago, Anna has been trying to escape. She has watched as her friends die of malnutrition and exposure in their deplorable dormitory halls. She has seen them maimed and killed by the heartless machinery of the factory. She lost her own little finger, not to the factory, but to the sardonic abbess in charge of Saint Frances’s. And the physical dangers pale beside the psychological. Anna knows she must escape or she will lose what little sanity she has left.

Anna finally gets an unexpected break when the abbess assigns her to clean the drainage tunnels under Saint Frances’s. Deep below the subbasement of the ancient orphanage, from beyond the iron-gated mouth of the drainage pipe, something speaks to Anna. She tells herself it’s a boy, but she knows better. The voice, Joseph, offers her a key, and promises freedom, if she will come to him when she escapes.

She accepts without hesitation.

In the five days that follow, as Anna prepares to flee, rumors begin to surface about a spy among the newly arrived nuns, even the possibility that a witch has sneaked onto the island. Anna hears whispers of grave danger coming to Saint Frances. She fears for her friends, but she has the key, and she has Joseph, and there is no turning back now.

Anna’s escape attempt triggers a chain reaction of chaos, shaking the orphanage to its foundation and laying bare its deadly secrets, calling back into being things long dead. Anna is forced to confront unearthly terrors in the swirling mist of the island, terrors from her past, and a truly unsettling mystery concerning the quality of her own soul.

Sisters of Sorrow is dedicated to the 796 children who died at the hands of the Sisters of Bon Secours at The Mother and Baby Home of Tuam, Ireland. May their souls find peace.

The Incorruptible - an international crime thriller by Margaret Eleanor Leigh

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KC5MZJC

“Write anything about this and you will not leave Greece alive…”
Only a rash outsider would dare interfere with Greece’s illegal trade in women. Meet Agnes Jones, she’s very rash indeed…

REVIEWS:

“Intense story with an unexpected twist. This was completely different from the books I have read and with the landscape of Greece it made for intriguing suspense story. Look forward to seeing what this talented author writes in the future.”
“A really well-written, clever story. Is there anyone in Greece Aggie can trust? There are so many twists to this story and if I say too much, I will ruin it for you.”

“This is the second book I have read by Margaret Eleanor Leigh, and I liked it even better than the last one. It was a great read and I particularly enjoyed the language, phrasing and the clever descriptive pieces which come with a touch of humour. I really liked those! Also the story moved quickly and did not linger for hours on minute descriptions of one flower. Ms Leigh also has a heroine you want to pick up and shake and throw on a plane to Heathrow. How could she be so stupid, so brave and how loveable all at the same time? A good book for a lazy afternoon, that will entertain you and keep you engrossed. I shall be buying all the other books by this author. Please give this book a try, you won’t regret it.”

--

She had begun a life of prostitution at the age of fourteen. That was twelve years ago, and it was all she knew. She had spent her entire adult life and the better part of her childhood in the lower echelons of prostitution. Now, imagine if the bible characters, the prostitute who marries the priest Hosea lived today and in our times, what their love story would have been like. Author, Pastor, Tanya Baker gives us an amazing fictional account of one of the greatest love stories of all time. There was more to the prostitute than what you heard. She was a woman who quickly was put in a role foreign to her and rejected. She suffered from psychological issues, rejection, post traumatic stress disorder and postpartum depression. She was like many women in ministry and those who rise from the fouls of life on the street trying to survive in a cruel world. A world that would not let her forget her past. After reading this novel, you will be inspired to love from the purest of heart and as God loves. You will hear the prostitute's side of the popular biblical tale. For she, could not have known that God had another plan for her. She, couldn't have known that she had a name that would be impossible to forget…a name of biblical proportions. She was called Gomer.

A Blues Life - A Memoir by Nome Trattenuta

KDP 5 Day Free Promo - April 24 thru April 28

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WAT65VM

The late, great P.G. Wodehouse is the primary influence on Nome Trattenuta’s narrative style and sense of humor, though Mr. Trattenuta’s subject matter leans more toward that found in Russell Brand’s or Hunter S. Thompson’s more disreputable confessions.  John Mortimer’s Rumpole stories, early Rod Stewart album liner notes, Stephen Fry’s memoirs, every episode of Monty Python and the collected ravings of Daffy Duck have all left their respective marks too.  “A Blues Life” uses English English spelling and is peppered with British slang (with explanatory footnotes for American readers) and somehow finds a middle ground between a high-brow command of the language and the low-brow antics described.  And though no photographic evidence has been offered, compensation has been made by way of the inclusion of some of Nome Trattenuta’s lyrics germain to the chapters they follow.  (Perhaps one day you will hear the recordings…)  But first, last and in-between, “A Blues Life” is the tale of an artist's struggle with Bipolar Disorder in the course of his life and professional career—his ups and downs, triumphs and failures, and times of pride and joy pitted against those of woe and truly comedic embarrassment.  Bits of it would translate well to film if you’re reading, Mr. Gilliam!

Long Gone Man - a mystery/thriller by Phyllis Smallman

http://www.amazon.com/Long-Gone-Singer-Brown-Mystery-ebook/dp/B00EVAO14G

Set in the Pacific Northwest, this series follows a homeless woman who calls herself Singer Brown. A musician who sings on the street for coins, Singer watches the ebb and flow of life around her. With a knack for being in the right place at the wrong time, Singer is one of society's invisible people. But being unseen is an incredible advantage when you're digging for secrets.

Long Gone Man is the first book in this new series, and has won the Gold Medal Award for 2014 from the independent Publishers Association in the Mystery/Thriller category.
Phyllis Smallman, author of the Sheri Travis mystery series, begins a new series with Long GoneMan, featuring Singer Brown, a middle-aged woman who'd be comfortable at Travis's Florida bar.

Brown peddles her voice for coins on street corners, and lives in an old van full of aches, pain and memories. The memory of a past lover's suspicious death leads her to Glenphiddie Island in the Pacific Northwest, just in time to learn of the murder of the man she suspects is the source of her 20 years of pain.

Suspects include a widow, other band members and, for some, Singer herself. Add motive, revenge, a gloriously obscure setting and the RCMP, and Smallman delivers a fresh take on the old saying that revenge is a dish best served cold.

The Last Enemy - a Romantic Suspense by Pauline Baird Jones

http://www.amazon.com/Last-Enemy-Lonesome-Lawmen-Book-ebook/dp/B00DYY4XKC

I'd been "inducted" into the world of romance writers and found them gutsy, bright and underestimated. Being the kind of person I am, I thought what fun it would be to pit a romance writer against a US Marshal. It was a hoot taking all the misconceptions about romance writers and using them against my poor hero. I liked the idea of the hero finding himself attracted, totally against his will, of course--to a woman he believes is already dead. I found I couldn't sustain it for long, just because my guy was so darn smart, but that meant I needed a killer with a twist, someone who could, at least for a short time, muddy the crime scene.
I'm a bit afraid of heights myself and one night I had this vivid dream about a wacko forcing my dream character to face her fears out on this ledge. When I originally started the story, it was set in New Orleans, but I needed a place with a FreeNet (at the time) to make the story work. And Denver had one and Lots of "up" for Dani to be afraid of. Of course, by the time I finished rewriting the book, technology had changed so much, she didn't need access to a free net to do what I needed her to do. I had this whole, hilarious scene with Dani in a library that I deleted. And another where she dressed like a man.

My husband had a business trip to Denver, so I asked him to check out the area, scope out the Federal building (which got him in a spot of trouble with some real US Marshals as he was taking pictures of the building and  being was most thorough about it.)  After that, being a National Park addict, hubby made his way to Rocky Mountain National Park and brought me back info on Long's Peak--the only "teener" (Peak 13,000 ft above sea level) that you can actually hike up. It was perfect for my (and Spook's twisted) purposes.

Visiting the Sins by Melanie Denman

http://www.amazon.com/Visiting-Sins-Second-Melanie-Denman-ebook/dp/B00RPLQYFM

In her riotous debut novel, Melanie Denman probes the silent sacrifices of motherhood with unflinching honesty and warmhearted amusement. Set in the Bible Belt of Deep East Texas, Visiting the Sins is a darkly funny story about mothers and daughters, naked ambition, elusive redemption, and all the torment it s possible to inflict in the name of family.

Down through the decades, the lofty social aspirations of the feisty but perennially dissatisfied Wheeler women Pokey, the love-starved, pistol-packing matriarch; Rebanelle, the frosty former beauty queen turned church organist; and Curtis Jean, the backsliding gospel singer are exceeded only by their unfortunate taste in men and a seemingly boundless capacity for holding grudges. A legacy of feuding and scandal lurches from one generation to the next with tragic consequences that threaten to destroy everything the Wheeler women have sacrificed their souls to build.

Visiting the Sins is old-fashioned Southern storytelling at its hilarious, heartbreaking, poetic best. --Frank Mills If the Devil Had a Wife

Visiting the Sins' is Melanie Denman's debut novel, an uproarious series of vignettes about the Wheeler family, a small-town clan dominated by strong willed women with sharp tongues and an unfortunate habit of marrying weak men. --Gary B. Borders - A Hanging in Nacogdoches

Melanie Denman comes from a long and celebrated tradition of southern writers combining pathos and humor with glorious results. Her characters-the women in particular-are marvelous: irreverent, scandalous and unapologetically themselves. Her language is as fresh and original as they are, and she uses a wonderfully unconventional structure to create this multi-generational family saga... has you laughing and crying, sometimes within the very same scene... --Malena Watrous - If You Follow Me

Few can depict rural East Texans or rural Southerners, for that matter with such accuracy and sensitivity as Melanie Denman did in Visiting the Sins. Or with such heartbreaking realism... She plumbs the depths of their personalities with warm-hearted humor for their human comedy, and with wisdom and understanding for the flaws that go with mankind s eternal condition. ... --F.E. Abernethy- Let the River Run Wild: Saving the Neches

"...strong relationships between the characters and the history of the old town... As the characters age through the story you can actually follow their thought process-thanks to the way Denman develops them and portrays their relationships." --Robert C. Nuzum -- Old Spanish Trail Treasure

Mayday - Historic Fiction Mystery Thriller - by Christopher Carr

http://www.amazon.com/Mayday-Christopher-Carr-ebook/dp/B00U0NLTNY

13 seconds. 67 shots fired. 4 dead. 9 wounded. And the killers went free. It was May 4, 1970.

Fast-Forward 40 years. Former Ohio National Guard members and other 60-something men are randomly being murdered execution style.

Special Agent Skyelar Blu — a weapons and martial arts expert — is assigned to the case. She discovers that her reclusive father was a Sergeant in the Guard unit that made history when soldiers fired their weapons into a crowd of unsuspecting Kent State University students. It’s uncovered that the men being killed were once members of this unit, as well as agitators from the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society).

Why is someone killing these men? Is it insanity...revenge...or something deeper? Is Skye’s father the prime suspect or is he the key to finding the killer?

Now Skyelar must catch the killer and unwrap the mystery surrounding her father and the murders.

Dear readers: I believe this book will give you some insight to this historic event. Although it's fiction, it is based around the actual event and a rumor that swirled around it, but was never proven. I wanted to get into the psyche of the man that pulled the trigger first and how that event may have effected his life.

I was inspired to write this book becasue in 1970, I was actually a student at Kent State University and stood less than 100 yards from the Ohio National Guard soldiers when they opened fire.

I wrote the screenplay first and then the novel. The entire process took me over two years.

The books title, MAYDAY, was the logical choice. The even happen on May 4, 1970 and "Mayday" is an international distress signal.

I actually created the cover. The bloody peace sign symbolizes the outcome of that day and is also one a reoccurring symbol/clue throughout the novel.

The hardest part of writing this book was reliving the event over and over in my head. I did a lot of research and learned a lot about the events that transpired in the years that followed. To the families and love ones, mostly.

I hope you will read MAYDAY. For those of you in my age range it will bring back memories of those days. For the rest of you, I hope you will learn a little about a tragic event that I pray will never be repeated.

Nikki Magee by Peter Wend

http://www.amazon.com/Nikki-Magee-Peter-Wendt-ebook/dp/B00OP9O1QQ

There are no Vampires of Venus seducing Martians and no Werewolves running amok in your forest outside. No Orcs are chopping off Goblins limbs and Photon cannons are not valiantly blasting away at the orbiting Starship. There is, though, one piano and the story of an amazing little girl who can play.

Nikki is an orphan, age 11. She's a musical prodigy, massively gifted, with a voice. She is taken under the wing of Johnny Mazzarisi, a mob boss, and his family.

Nikki lives upstairs at a shop, owned by Johnny's youngest son, Tony, where she begins learning a trade. She soon acquires a piano, is befriended by Nina, daughter of an employee of Tony, and meets Lesya Popov, a once world renowned harpist.

From playing with two other musicians to her first experience at a music club, where Drek Mason is playing, Nikki's ability is gaining power and breadth. She eventually plays with Lesya at the performance hall in the city. This event launches what Drek Mason has been searching for, culminating in the - real - Michael Collins Band.

A highlight to Nikki, and fortuitous for Drek, is when, at age 15, she and Lesya, by pure happenstance, wind up in Glasgow. It's Nikki's first rock concert and fate is about to intervene on a massive scale.

So take a break from Venusian Vampires, orbital space-platforms, and enjoy a story with a different tune.

--------------

Late one night, Ben McKinnon couldn't sleep because of the thoughts bumping his brain. He awoke and yanked a brown hair from his head, pulling the thoughts out with it. A puddle of green ink flowed from the hair as he dragged it across an empty page. Faces emerged from the emerald puddle: faces with names. Jeremy, Sasha, Eric, Whytney, Daniel. They had come to tell their story. "Come with us," they said.

Eric looked Ben in the eye. "You can't just tell this story. You have to live it."

"But where are we going?" asked Ben, following them into the darkening ink. Whytney and Jeremy exchanged a glance.

"We call it Farallon," answered Jeremy.

"Yes," adds Whytney. "The Forests of Farallon. It will change your life."

The Triangle Exit - The true story of a former FBI agent by Ronald Fino

Ronald Fino, the FBI’s foremost undercover operative does not scare easily. Which is why he’s not afraid to name names in this true-to-life undercover expose.
For years, Fino wanted to write about his exploits, but each time the FBI managed to stop him. Even requests from major authors like Tom Clancy had to be placed on the back burner.
Today, Ronald Fino, is retired from his service to the FBI and is ready to tell his story. Because of his unique position as the son of a Mafia Godfather, Fino got to know the ins and outs of organized crime from the ground up. He learned how they control members of Congress as well as local officials, and their ties to presidents, politicians and law enforcement officials. “If the public ever put this all together, on how their tax dollars are misused, there would be a revolution,” declares Fino, quoting a well known FBI maxim.
But working to bring mob members to justice and exposing political corruption wasn’t enough for Fino. He also managed to infiltrate the Russian Mafia, made clandestine contact with Muslim terrorists, and outed illegal arms smugglers, child porn organizers, narcotics dealers, and international money launders.
It’s all here. It’s all true. And, as Ronald Fino says, “It’s not going away anytime soon.”

The London Affair - a mainstream novel by Susan Lute

The London Affair at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/London-Affair-Susan-Lute-ebook/dp/B005MJG3X2

Many authors talk about writing the “book of their heart.” Sometimes it happens by accident. That's what happened to me. I was published in traditional contemporary romance when Stella Carmichael came knocking on my door – figuratively speaking. One day driving to The Day Job, an hour from my home, in the city of Portland, I was listening to my favorite radio station, K103, when they gave away a trip to anywhere in the world to one lucky listener. Instantly my imagination took off. What if a woman in trouble won that trip? What if her daughter won the trip and sent her mother as far from her normal life, such as it was, as she could? What if...? And so Stella's story was born. One of my favorite cities in the world is London. It made sense England was where Stella had to be sent to sort herself out...but it wasn't just Stella who was in trouble. The plot thickened.

Bitterly resentful of her family and a life that isn’t what it’s supposed to be, Stella Carmichael finds herself responsible for her unruly granddaughter, and on a plane to London. Faced with hard truths about her relationship with a husband who’s gone and a family that is falling apart, she reluctantly gets to know her sullen granddaughter, makes new friends, and embarks on an unexpected flirtation. Somewhere along the way will she discover family is a gift, and living, something to be treasured?

Family, community, and the journey home. Those are the stories I write, that touch my heart. I hope they touch yours, too.

The Parthian – an ancient adventure by Peter Darman

http://www.amazon.com/Parthian-Chronicles-Book-ebook/dp/B0053D6NBE

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Parthian-Chronicles-Book-ebook/dp/B0053D6NBE

‘The Parthian’ is a tale of love, honour, war, glory and loss set in the Spartacus slave revolt in Italy in the first century BC.

‘The Parthian’ is a unique account of the Spartacus slave revolt as seen through the eyes of a young Parthian prince: Pacorus, a member of the royal household of Hatra, an ancient city between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the Parthian Empire. Captured by the Romans in Cappadocia, Pacorus is condemned to a life of slavery and transported to Italy. But he is rescued from a cruel fate by a band of escaped gladiators on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. The leader of the slaves is a Thracian called Spartacus and thereafter he and Pacorus forge a mighty army that shakes the Roman Republic to its core.

Combining historical accuracy with exciting narrative, ‘The Parthian’ follows the exploits of Pacorus and the slave army as they inflict a string of defeats on the Roman army as they march through Italy. But the slave army is riven with divisions that threatened to tear it apart, especially the antagonism between Pacorus, the commander of Spartacus’ horsemen, and Crixus, the fiery leader of the Gauls. Their intense dislike of each other eventually leads to the division of the slave army, which has dire ramifications for Spartacus.

But while Pacorus is glad to see the back of one Gaul another becomes central to his fate. The fiery, beautiful Gallia intoxicates him and slowly the Gaul princess warms to his charms. They both decide to stay by Spartacus’ side when the slave army reaches the Alps in northern Italy but refuses to disband. The decision is made to march on Rome itself. But in the eternal city Rome’s most power figure – Marcus Licinius Crassus – decides to take the field against Spartacus. Thereafter it is a deadly game of cat-and-mouse as the slave army seeks to stay one step ahead of Crassus. Can Pacorus save his men and the woman he loves before they are cornered by Crassus and his legions?

Star Crossed - contemporary novel of impossible love by Paul McDermott

“Nothing comes freely in this world. Love comes least freely of all.”

Mahmud, a Christian Palestinian refugee, sets out to rebuild his shattered life and escape his traumatic past in his new home, truly the blessed land he’d hoped to find, Australia. His only dream, the greatest dream Australia represents for him, is that his siblings and mother can finally find peace and security, and healing enough to make their dreams come true. Shahar – Sharni when in the West – is touring Australia as an out-andproud conservative Israeli political warrior. Dishonourably discharged from the Israeli Army under civilian bureaucratic rules designed to insulate Western pieties – or so she sees her mistreatment under civilian oversight – she sets out with a clear goal: to throw as much invective, to be as many stereotypes, to do whatever it takes to make the world understand that she’s angry with them. She only wishes she knew why – that those responsible for her discharge from the service of her beloved country could tell her why she is so angry.

When Sharni meets Mahmud, love kindles – and instantly. Just as God raises the cup of happiness to two sets of willing lips, two souls yearning for the loving life they know they will share, so does the world dash it away. For as much as we all wish otherwise, the world – armed with its prejudices – forever intrudes...

The book will be FREE on 19-21.4.15

Haunting Evergreen - Supernatural/Paranormal story by L.K. Campbell

http://www.amazon.com/Haunting-Evergreen-Series-Book-ebook/dp/B00W4N7DIS

Haunting Evergreen is a ghost story with a little tongue-in-cheek poke at the current ghost hunting craze. My personal belief goes along with what Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." I've had a few personal experiences that I couldn't explain, and I do believe that there's a world all around us that we can't see while we're in this mortal form—only once in a while people will have glimpses of it.
While the relationship between the main characters, Justin Marino and Lisa Ryan, does change and grow in the course of the story, this book isn't classified as a romance. In the beginning of the story, they don't like each other at all. Justin is a paranormal reseacher of psychic phenomena. He doesn't have a lot of respect for ghost hunters of the T.V. reality show ilk. Lisa Ryan is one of those ghost hunters. She even has her own T.V. show, Lisa Ryan, Ghost Finder. Their experience at Evergreen will change the dynamic between these two characters. If you like a an old-fashioned ghost story with a bit of humor and a hint of romance, I think you will enjoy Haunting Evergreen.
