The Turnaround Treasure Shop (contemporary small town romance) by Jennie Jones

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VR2EH7W

Looking for a delightful, warm story about family and second-chance love?

Lily Johnson has two teenage children, a waitressing job and a dream. With just over 100 residents in her hometown of Swallow’s Fall in the Australian Snowy Mountains, there’s little chance to dream big. But there’s an empty corner shop on Main Street and Lily has plans for it – one day she’ll open it as a country curios shop and turn her impossible dream into a reality.

Ex-Navy diver Nick Barton backed away from his impossible dream – Lily and her children. He’s been in town a year, keeping his distance and maintaining a casual acquaintance with Lily. They’re both divorced and Nick doesn’t believe he deserves a second-chance. But when he comes to understand more about Lily through his easy friendship with her children, he understands how hard Lily is working for her dream. Nick wants to help but by doing so, he might ruin his only chance with Lily.

Everyone has the right to at least one dream coming true, and Lily is determined to achieve her goal on her own. But if she doesn’t take this chance now, she might find that “one day” never comes.

This is book #4 in the bestselling Swallow’s Fall series by Jennie Jones, but like all Jennie’s books – it can be read as a stand-alone story.

Sacrifice: Bk 1, y Ddraig [The Dragons of Brython]' - a gritty, dragony, dark ages fantasy by Gwendolyn Beynon

http://www.amazon.com/Sacrifice-Book-Ddraig-Dragons-Brython-ebook/dp/B00YCR8UFY

528 A.D - It’s cold. It’s muddy. It’s miserable. The Chieftains of dark-age Wales are still setting their country to rights after Rome abandoned them a century before and now invaders from the east are raging towards them with their sights set on Wales’ fertile valleys. One warlord has risen above them all on the magic he has stolen from a creature that hasn’t been seen by common men since the Red Cloaks slaughtered the Druids—y Ddraig. King Artwr sends his fierce brother, Cai, to retrieve a dragon’s egg to give him the gift of sight. But the egg is guarded by Melangell of the Old People, raised as a dragon-maiden, her life forfeit to the protection of the Ancient Ones.  Melangell expects to pass her years as have a score of teachers before her—hidden away in a remote forest, safeguarding a relic that barely moves from year to year, never using the deadly and secret skills she has been painstakingly learning since she was a babe. But the King’s relentless pursuit of this most holy relic throws her into the middle of his war and, though she is not yet adept, Melangell must enter captivity with the egg to defend the sleeping dragonling within. [Sacrifice is the first in a series of three books based around y Ddraig (the Dragon) set in sixth-century Arthurian Wales, featuring characters based on Welsh myth, literature and/or history.]

Grayson Manor Haunting - Supernatural Suspense by Cheryl Bradshaw

http://www.amazon.com/Grayson-Manor-Haunting-Addison-Lockhart-ebook/dp/B00BWY3UKU

I've been fascinated with ghosts and the paranormal ever since I was a child, and have actually had a few hair-raising experiences of my own. As an author, I started out writing mysteries (Sloane Monroe series), but I have been longing for quite some time to pen a good ghost story series that incorporated elements of murder as well. This is how the Addison Lockhart series began. This, and watching too many episodes of Celebrity Ghost Stories and coming up with idea after idea. It's my guilty pleasure, and one I've kept "in the closet." I guess the secret is out!

Unfailing Love - domestic discipline fiction by Bella Bryce

http://www.amazon.com/Unfailing-Love-Waldorf-Manor-Book-ebook/dp/B010CY7TD4

Love is a decision. It isn’t a fleeting emotion, and it stands firm when everything else is shaken. Brayden James has learned through raising his adopted daughter, Alice, that discipline is only part of what is required to establish stability. When a devastating incident causes Alice to see the reality of her prior circumstances, she is affirmed once again in her life at Waldorf. Brayden’s healing love is exactly what she needs, and his blossoming relationship with Anabelle Grayson mirrors that in its purest form. Brayden and Ana are now exploring the facets of their courtship between the deeply desired accountability system of domestic discipline and some rather amusing scenarios.

    The fifth book in the series turns particular attention to Waldorf and where it all began, giving the reader a close-up look at the man who thought he lost everything he loved when his parents died. With glimpses at the supporting cast of the series, we learn how the boundaries of marriage are built when love is at the heart of relationships. What began as Alice’s story of forgiveness and healing has turned an entire social circle to focus on their need for unmovable, sacrificial and unfailing love.

Enchanted by Ella Summers

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YDDS1VA

Born in the land of magic, Ariella has never cared for the nightmare world of technology beyond Elitia’s borders: airships, bombs, some dubious thing the humans call fusion energy. Her last encounter with technology very nearly killed her, and she’s not eager for a rematch. But then her friend Davin, the crown prince of Elitia, is abducted by agents of the Avan Empire. To save the man she secretly loves, she has to travel beyond Elitia to the Avan capital city. Her only hope lies with rogue mercenary Everett—and trying to fight technology with magic.

Everett, mercenary and rescue mission expert extraordinaire, knows he’s in for trouble as soon as he sees his latest client. Ariella is Elition; the enormous glowing sword she carries around won’t let him forget that, just as he can’t forget the last time he crossed paths with Elition magic. Ten of his friends died, victims of telekinetic sorcery, and Everett learned to be very wary of magic. But Ariella is offering him a substantial reward for his help—if they can save Davin before the Avans’ unknown endgame plays out.

Enchanted is the first book in the Sorcery and Science fantasy adventure series.

KDP Select Free Promotion: 06/28/2015-07/02/2015

"Satisfyingly dark . . . a mystery that confronts grief and the forces that lead to life-altering actions." -D. Donovan, Senior e-Book Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Isabel Swift is a savvy, down-to-earth, female police officer who protects the citizens of Westchester County and wants to become a detective. From a broken home, her brothers and sisters in blue are her family, and she is shaken by the recent, unexpected death of her mentor, Ben Carter, from what everyone thinks was a heart attack. On her first day back from leave, she is paired with an arrogant forensic data scientist, Mark Jameson, who is more interested in analyzing data than solving the crime of stolen technology to which they are assigned.

When their investigation uncovers an unexpected link between the theft and her mentor's death, Swift and Jameson have only 48 hours to whittle down a countywide list of suspects, track down the stolen technology, and solve the mystery of Ben Carter's death. Can Isabel overcome her grief and her differences with her new partner to solve the case and earn her detective's badge?

Heart Break is the debut novel of MF Moskwik and the first in the Isabel Swift series.

Singer of Death - a paranormal romance by Shona Husk

http://www.amazon.com/Singer-Death-Court-Banished-Annwyn-ebook/dp/B00V22R2A6

Singer of Death is a story I’d been wanting to write for a while. The hero is a thief and the heroine is scarred from an acid attack. Both of them are changelings, part human and part fairy, so they also have magic. Writing about two changelings discovering the full extent of their power was a lot of fun—even when they were getting into trouble with both the human and the fairy authorities.

The Court of the Banished series is a little darker than my first fairy series, the Court of Annwyn, and is set after the fairy caused plagues. The world is recovering so there are post-apocalyptic elements. I love revisiting my fairy world and expanding it with each book. I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy creating it!

Horse & Rabbit Stew: It's Probably Because I Was A Breech Birth - a memoir by J. Gregory Street

http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Rabbit-Stew-Probably-Because-ebook/dp/B00QIXLCKK

Horse & Rabbit Stew tells the story of a young man who squandered the advantages of youth, family and Baby Boom generation, and his subsequent awakenings to purpose and worth. He was compelled to be self-disciplined in the military, and later his simple life perspective was abruptly and forever complicated by combat duty in Vietnam. Struggles to get on with a normal and mainstream life brought him only sadness and frustration until an epiphany helped him reclaim inner peace.

From the Preface: I believe Nietzsche was right: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” I live the idea and at least one more: If you cannot laugh at yourself, then you miss most of the fun. Laugh at me or with me as I tell you of my self-discovery.

Language in the Blood - a funny vampire novel by Angela Lockwood

Free Kindle giveaway on the 27th of June!

http://www.amazon.com/Language-blood-Book-Angela-lockwood-ebook/dp/B00EMEN1P6

Until the outbreak of the First World War, young Cameron Blair would have liked nothing better than to stay in Edinburgh and marry his childhood sweetheart. As the call to arms goes out, Cameron and his pals sign up to fight for their country. They are soon delivered into the nightmare of war, and there Cameron more than meets his maker.

The story follows Cameron as he comes to terms with his new ‘life’, from his first days as a hapless vampire in war-torn France to the glamorous modern day setting of the Côte d’Azur. Along the way, he develops a distinctive taste for the finer things in life: jewels, yachts, small dogs and champagne-infused human...
This is a different and funny vampire story. Lovers of Yorkshire terriers might want to avoid this book.

Here is what some of the reviewers thought:

5* “Not your typical vampire story. It's well written, funny, enthralling, and entertaining.”

5* “For all you vampire lovers out there LANGUAGE IN THE BLOOD is by far, I will say again, by far, the most unusual vampire book I have ever read. With that said it was a delight to read.”

5* “The author uses humour throughout which had me chuckling aloud a few times.”

5* This story is told by Cameron Blair – a vampire. It is different to other vampire books out there. I know the book Twilight has put a lot of people off vampire books, but Language in the Blood will restore your faith in the genre.”

A Trillion Dollar Man - an action adventure thriller by Angus Kennedy

FREE AMAZON SELECT PROMOTION:Saturday, June 27, 2015 & Sunday, June 27, 2015

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VH5N5PO

YOUR BEST FRIEND IS DEAD ON HIS LIVING ROOM FLOOR
Suddenly you’re jerked into a scene right out an intense action thriller book. You’d planned a transpacific adventure with him and other close friends on your huge historical sailboat. You’re locked into a nightmare like an FBI thriller, a CIA black ops story and a detective crime book all in one.

WHAT IF YOU WERE THE FIRST PERSON TO BREAK THE TRILLIONAIRE BARRIER
You’ve seen clearly that billionaires are as tedious as any other financial group. Bored with making money and the lammo rich and famous; you retired to your Texas ranch; you re-channeled your energy into raising outstanding Quarter Horses.

YOU ARE A FORCE RECON MARINE, RETIRED
You are a lethal engine designed not just for combat, but intense mental reconnaissance while fighting.

A BRAND NEW ACTION ADVENTURE SERIES COMES ON LIKE A THERMONUCLEAR REACTION
With huge thrust the Trillion Dollar man explodes. Don’t kill anyone’s best friend and for sure, not a Force Reconnaissance Marine’s.

YOUR BEST FRIEND’S STATELY HOME LOOKS LIKE A WARZONE
Your heavy duty, Marine Corps, battle damage assessment drills, remote sensors location exercises and your initial terminal guidance training all kick in at once.

A disgusting detective crime scene right out of an ordinary suspense laden mystery book is in your face. But at the same time, it’s more much bigger, like an action adventure book; it’s instantly obvious that something more sinister than ordinary cops stuff, than mystery crime stories is going on, something big and weird right out of a series of huge, black op action thrillers is at play.

The destruction is like one sees in war novels, like American Sniper―like the weapons one finds in Special Forces fiction. Some big, sinister group is on your back, something like the government conspiracy against Jason in The Bourne Identity, like heavy government surveillance novels, like CIA fiction, like all of it: FBI thriller, CIA black ops, and a detective crime book in the same instant.

YOU KNOW INSTANTLY THAT YOU WILL FIND THE UNFRIENDLIES
Because of your training for deadly force encounters, you engage instantly. “The United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance detachments, or FORECON, operate in deep reconnaissance, direct action, and the control of supporting arms; to convey military intelligence beyond the means of a commander's area of influence in the battlefield . . . .”
Wikipedia

YOU ARE A VERY HEALTHY VET LIKE CHRIS KYLE IN CLINT EASTWOOD’S MOVIE, AMERICAN SNIPER
When you retired from the Marines, you never stopped long enough for Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome to rule your life. On returning to civilian life you saw clearly―from combat shocking you into an eyes-wide-open view of life―that the Uber-Rich own everything. That you needed money to have a wife and kids and put your training straight to work in the money markets.

WHAT IF ALL THAT FORCE RECON TRAINING HAD GIVEN YOU CLARITY
They operate at such great distances that they are beyond the boundaries, or fan, of any artillery and/or naval gunfire support (NGFS); unlike their Division Recon brethren, whose operations are primarily within the artillery and gunfire support fan. Silence and stealth are vital . . . .”
Wikipedia

A brand new, 21st Century Thriller Series is launched. This first novel, A Trillion Dollar Man, explodes off the page: like American Sniper, a U.S. Government trained killer comes home and starts doing good rather than collapsing in PTS.

A new type of hero goes after the killers who are poaching large mammals globally. Not only harvesting parts off the proud elephants and rhinos in Africa, but also slaughtering and harvesting paws and organs from Smokey the Bear right here in U.S. National Parks.

But they make a big mistake when they leave the Trillion Dollar Man’s best friend sprawled on his living room floor.

Torrents of Destruction - an inspirational romantic suspense by Robin Caroll

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y6XWYS8

Torrents of Destruction—Three siblings...two undercover agents...one raging river: Who will survive?

As a white water rafting guide, Katie Gallagher must battle the forces of nature on a daily basis. When sabotage becomes apparent on a weekend rafting trip, Katie must determine who she can trust—and who has their own agenda. Hunter Malone has a mission on a business adventure trip on the Gauley River, a mission that didn’t include a spunky guide who could handle the class-five rapids better than he’d ever imagined. But can she handle the truth?

This high action romantic suspense was inspired by a white water rafting trip to the Gauley River by the author’s husband (minus the murder and mayhem, of course). Author Robin Caroll says, “Several years ago, my husband and our friend, Wade, took a trip to white water raft the Gauley River. When they returned, I watched their video, studied their pictures, and listened to tales of their adventures. It was then that I realized I just had to use the Gauley as a story setting.”

When asked about the title of the novel, Robin replied, “Torrents of Destruction was taken straight from the Scripture reference of the book, PSALM 18:4-6.”

An Amazon reviewer, Ann E.: Wild Ride! 5 Stars ~ “What a ride! I read the book in one setting because after I started it I couldn't put it down. It is a story that kept me guessing from the very beginning and finished with an ending I certainly didn't see coming. Robin had me feeling like I was on the wild white water rafting trip with the characters. It is a wonderful combination of action, suspense, romance and faith that I certainly recommend.”

"I applaud Chantel Seabrook for this great work of fiction. If you want a book to read this summer that will take you into a new world full of adventure and surprise, this is the one for you." - Kathryn Bennett, Readers' Favorite

"Chantel Seabrook creates a wonderfully believable medieval-like world where a virgin princess learns the price of becoming a queen. Twelve consorts pledge allegiance, and she can take them to her bed ... or not. She must bind the hearts of these men, to hold onto her land. The characters are deep, the plot intriguing, and the sights and sounds will take your breath away. The book should come with a warning. Impossible to put down!" Stella Marie Alden

Cara, a young headstrong woman raised in the backwater province of Crowthorne, finds her fate bound to a system she despises and a goddess she no longer believes in. When it becomes clear that the heir to the Elbian throne has found disfavor in the eyes of the goddess Annul, Cara is ordained by blood and required by law to take her cousin’s place as heir apparent.

One man from each of the twelve provinces are chosen by the royal council to pledge their lives and swords as champions and consorts of the future queen. From these men, Cara must choose the future king of Elbia. Before she is able to take her place on the throne, Cara and her Twelve must visit each province and perform a sacred ceremony, one that will make Cara question everything she thought was real.

Cara soon realizes that not all of the men who swore to protect her are what they seem, and there are those who would use her as a tool to gain power.

When  he  leaves the bus, they get off at the same time. They join him and walk him to his door, which is when his nightmare begins.

The  girls  rape  Claude and leave him naked, tied to a lamppost. Next morning  he has to ask his neighbor for help because his front door is shut  and he doesn't have a key.

G-Strings, fake bodies, what lubricant to use, and which angle looks best on camera, these are all things Tony knows. What he doesn't know is how to pursue a real relationship, one outside the industry that's making him retire and leaving him behind. Tony DiMarco, aka Ting Tang Tony, made a big name for himself-- regardless of being small--in an industry where size truly does matter. He's had a long career hiding behind a camera lens where his shortcomings didn't affect him at all. At 38 he's forced to find a real life where hopefully size doesn't matter. The last place he thought his life would change is in Florida.

Tripping over the gorgeous and upstanding, Emily Grant, snaps him out of the pity-pot he is just about to take a bath in. However, having never dated outside the industry has him second-guessing everything. How would someone possibly want his "little engine that could"? Can Tony open up about his playboy-style career, and more importantly, can he overcome the insecurities that he's shoved aside his whole life?

Tony's got his work cut out for him, he needs to penetrate the walls Emily's built to protect herself and her own insecurities. Will she be able to handle Tony's crazy double life he's trying to hide from her, the one he lives back home in L.A.? There's a small chance it might work, that it might fit—something Tony certainly isn't used to. This may be his one opportunity to find that missing puzzle piece he's only been able to fantasize about.


The whirlwind journey these two set out on will keep you rooting for the underdogs, and teach you that it's not always the size of the package that's important—it's what's inside that matters most.

Angel of Baker Street - a thriller set in WWII by Catherine Bell

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00YJC5MSA

http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Baker-Street-Catherine-Bell-ebook/dp/B00YJC5MSA

Set in World War II, Angel of Baker Street is the story of Olivia Drummond who is recruited by Special Operations Executive to be an undercover agent in occupied France.  With the codename of Angelique she  is sent to Paris to find out what has happened to the Prosper circuit.  It soon becomes clear the circuit has been compromised by a double agent.

It is in Paris that Olivia meets Louis Tillon, a former member of the circuit and Eric Kleist, a German officer.  Two men who become an integral part of her life as a spy.

Olivia is sent on her second mission but this time to the Auvergne region where, with the help of Louis, she trains the Maquis in their fight against the Germans.  Eventually captured, she is sent back to Paris and tortured by the SD.  Despite the unbearable brutality, Olivia is determined to survive if only to find and kill the man who she now knows betrayed her.
Although the story is fiction, some of the characters I have included in the story, Sir Maurice Buckmaster, Vera Atkins, Hans Kieffer as well as the pilots were real people.  I have tried to portray them true to their characters.  The research needed for this book was incredibly detailed, even down to the black bathroom at Baker Street!

One Night in Tehran - a Christian Fiction Thriller by Luana Ehrlich

Free 6/24/ through 6/28!

http://www.amazon.com/One-Night-Tehran-Titus-Thriller-ebook/dp/B00MKK5HEM

“Wow. This book never stopped! It grabbed my attention at the beginning and did not let go. It still hasn't let go of me.” –Book Review by Aerykah on Expressions of Me blog.

“One Night in Tehran is a well-written, suspenseful page turner of a book.” –Goodreads Book Review.

“Recommend this book to all CIA novel lovers.” –Amazon reviewer.

One Night in Tehran is the first in a series of Christian thrillers featuring veteran CIA intelligence officer, Titus Ray, who comes to faith in Christ through the efforts of a group of Iranian Christians.

When a mission in Tehran goes horribly bad, not only do these persecuted believers keep Titus hidden away from the secret police, they also manage to smuggle him over the mountainous terrain of Iran and ultimately to safety in Turkey.

Then, while being debriefed in a safe house back in the States, Titus discovers the underlying cause of his mission’s failure and the person responsible for the downfall of his network in Iran. After delivering a scathing indictment against the Deputy Director of Operations, Titus is put on a year’s medical leave. At the same time, he learns he’s being stalked by an assassin who's seeking revenge for his actions in Tehran—someone sent by the Iranian secret police.

Now, while trying to settle into a “normal” life in the small university town of Norman, Oklahoma, he must decide if the Iranian couple he meets at a church has any connection to the assassin who’s after him, and if Nikki, Saxon, a beautiful, local detective, can be trusted with his secrets. And, all the while, he’s trying to figure out what it means to live a life of faith—a life that doesn't seem to be compatible with his line of work.

When a stranger presents Duke with a chance to become an assassin, Duke listens to him for the fun of it. Until the man reveals he knows more about Duke than any stranger should.

Raven's Choice - a historical novella by Harper Swan

http://www.amazon.com/Ravens-Choice-Replacement-Chronicles-Book-ebook/dp/B00QOGLFVM

What possible link could Mark Hayek, an introverted twenty-first century research scientist, have to Raven, a young woman who lived during the late Pleistocene? It has everything to do with an encounter between a band of Early Modern Humans and a group of Neanderthals intent on hunting bison.

 As meticulously researched as Jean Auel's Earth Children series but with the benefit of recent discoveries, this novella is an updated story revealing how contact between Neanderthals and Early Humans had surprising results.

 After an injured Neanderthal hunter is taken captive, Raven, as a healer, feels she has no option but to become his advocate. Her own survival soon becomes doubtful when the band's leader threatens to cast her out onto the steppe for what he sees as dangerous willfulness.

 Raven feels an unexpected empathy for the mysterious Neanderthal. But while trying to preserve his life and health, will she go so far as to commit what could be the worst error of her own life? Mark Hayek will never find out that Raven faced a frightening dilemma. But if he did know, he would understand that the present reality exists because of choices made in the past.

A Standard Journey - 5 horses, 2 people, and 1 tent by Jackie Parry

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Standard-Journey-horses-people-tent-ebook/dp/B00Z17XXQA

http://www.amazon.com/Standard-Journey-horses-people-tent-ebook/dp/B00Z17XXQA

We saved their lives, but they changed ours forever.

With daring inspiration, Jackie and Noel trained five lost and confused horses, and forced their own unfit bodies to meld into one team.

Life became horses, trail, endurance, and camping: all seven reliant on one another as they trekked along part of Australia’s majestic Bicentennial National Trail.

What started as a dream adventure turned out to be more than they had ever imagined. The beauty of the trail didn’t lessen its dangers; with all their worldly possessions on horseback, Jackie and Noel made mistakes and with humour, learned the hard way. What would Jackie and Noel do if one of the horses was broken? Would they have the strength to put it down? Or would a miracle save them all?

Emotional histories were tackled by animal and human. Fears were faced and conquered, and bonds forged. They were amateur horse-handlers, but they created something special, unique, and incredibly endearing.

Organic Guinea Pig's Health Revolution - Self help / nutrition & health book by Dale Preece-Kelly

http://www.amazon.com/Organic-Guinea-Pigs-Health-Revolution-ebook/dp/B00VWNXEG6

Available worldwide on Amazon in eBook and Paperback formats

Smoking, drinking, eating all of the wrong foods – that was ME.

I was leading a lifestyle, like many people, that was killing me. A doctor telling me that I was killing myself, and a chance meeting with somebody passionate about nutrition was all that it took for me to stop and look at where I was headed, and change my life around.

This book is the system that I used to stop smoking and to stop all of the other poor lifestyle choices that I was making. By following this system, my health improved immeasurably, my mental wellbeing improved and my fitness levels improved so much that I ran a 10k race. I learned how living a healthy lifestyle and maintaining it does not have to be boring.

This system helped me to lose 2 stones in weight, stubborn deposits of fat around my stomach and waist, 4 inches off my waist size, at the same time as giving me more confidence, better muscle definition and a really happy and positive outlook on life. These are just the SIDE EFFECTS!! The true benefit is, that all of the health problems that I had at the start (heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol) have disappeared, and the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease that I had have all but gone too.

The system is so easy to maintain, once you know what to do, that I am still doing it more than 12 months later, and I am confident that you will be too. If you are TRULY committed to your health, and living a long and disease free life, then this book is for you.

Organic Guinea Pig began as a page on social media, where I could be a public “Guinea Pig” for somebody passionate about health & nutrition – testing different natural healing techniques, foods and such. Within a few months, I could see how this new lifestyle was helping me, and I too became passionate about nutrition and everything else that OGP incorporated, and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. Organic Guinea Pig became a business, as I qualified as a nutritional therapist.

Since then, I have written this book, in the hope that many people (far more than I could reach in any other way) will buy it, and use the system to help them become healthier, happier, and fitter for life. It’s NOT a diet, it’s a change for LIFE.

Confessions of an Ugly Girl - chick lit by Alice Wasser

http://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Ugly-Girl-Alice-Wasser-ebook/dp/B00ZY4JLSO

Millie Glockenfeld will never fall in love.

She will never get engaged. She will never get married. She will never live in a house with a white picket fence and 2.4 children. And all for one very simple reason:

She is ugly.

Fortunately, one thing Millie has learned over the years is that she doesn't need a man. She's got a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crazy but lovable cat lady who lives downstairs from her. What more does a girl need in life?

But then one day Millie meets Sam Webber. He is adorably handsome and absolutely perfect (well, almost). And Sam thinks that Millie is beautiful.

Now there's a chance that Millie might get the happy ending she's always secretly wanted... if only she can learn to look in the mirror and see what Sam sees.

Dragonlinked - An lgbt-friendly young-adult fantasy by Adolfo Garza Jr

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BYHQ1WO

FREE from 06/21 - 06/23/2015.

Magic? Check. Evil beasts that kill for no apparent reason? Check. Oh, and there is a dragon or two. There are also bullies. They’re a bunch of pains in the butt, right? Alas, they seem to be everywhere as Aeron knows all too well, what with Jessip constantly picking on him. So, Aeron’s dealing with bullies (if running and escaping can be considered ‘dealing’), he’s trying to make his dad proud, and when he hears any rumor about deadly nahual attacks, for some reason it makes him very nervous. Progress on the ‘making dad proud’ front (he finally gets invited to train in Magic Craft) comes with its own strangeness. How is he so good at sorcery?

Then he rescues a baby dragon. He didn’t know it was a dragon. The poor thing couldn’t seem to break out of its egg, though, and unable to ignore the piteous whimpers, he helps her hatch. Incredibly powerful magic is triggered that bonds them together, mind and soul, making them friends for life, and he wonders how he’s going to take care of her without risking his studies. On the other hand, he’s got this adorable dragon companion who needs him right now. When he finds out she will eventually get to be at least twenty feet long and weigh around four or five thousand pounds, he panics. How in Yrdra’s deepest hells is he going to keep her a secret?

Amazon Customer “English Teacher” (amazon.com customer review):
“This is a totally charming story with likeable characters and a well-crafted plot. The writing is good, someone bothered to proof it pretty well, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Ledgar (amazon.com customer review of the series):
“When I read LGBT about the first book which was free, I will admit I was a little apprehensive [...] because I am not a fan of graphic sex of any kind. [...] But the heart felt moments we're handled with grace and enabled you to see the moment of love for what it was. Now on to the rest. I loved the stories. Magic, dragons, action. I literally had to keep reading and will honestly say I NEVER BUY BOOKS [w]hen there are so many free books. But congratulations, excellent story telling. I bought the next 2 books and they are kept in favourites to read again. I hope there will be more books in the future.”

Omen Firepaws (amazon.com customer review of the series):
“This has been an amazing ongoing tale from book one all the way up to three. Sometimes I curse my reading speed and devotion to see a good book, or series, through: I read all three books in just a couple of weeks (some nights I forgot to sleep, as into the story as I get). Anyone debating reading this, if you love dragons, you will NOT be disappointed[...]”

The last two days I spent reading your Dragonlinked and The Bond. They gave me as much pleasure as those long ago Andre Norton titles.

Dark Horse - a science fiction romance by Michelle Diener

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Z9R1W9W

Dark Horse was a book that simply wouldn't let me work on anything else. It got it's talons in me and wouldn't let go until I had finished it. Science fiction romance is a new genre for me, but I have had so much fun writing about alien abduction, artificial intelligence and life on the other side of the galaxy in Dark Horse, I'm definitely going to do it again.

As a huge fan of the original (and the new!) Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars and Star Trek, as well as new science fiction movies like Serenity, Guardians of the Galaxy and the two new Star Trek movies, it was great to make up my own story in the stars, and I hope readers are caught up in discovering what happens to my heroine, Rose, as she is taken from Earth and finds herself in a galaxy far, far away.

I particularly liked working out the character of Sazo, the artificial intelligence who is both Rose's saviour and her biggest headache, and so far, reviewers and readers have told me that Rose and Sazo's relationship is one of the best parts of the book for them.

I hope other readers enjoy it just as much.

Michelle Diener

About Dark Horse:

Some secrets carry the weight of the world.
Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she's made a powerful ally--a fellow prisoner with whom she's formed a strong bond. Sazo's an artificial intelligence. He's saved her from captivity and torture, but he's also put her in the middle of a conflict, leaving Rose with her loyalties divided.

Captain Dav Jallan doesn't know why he and his crew have stumbled across an almost legendary Class 5 battleship, but he's not going to complain. The only problem is, all its crew are dead, all except for one strange, new alien being.

She calls herself Rose. She seems small and harmless, but less and less about her story is adding up, and Dav has a bad feeling his crew, and maybe even the four planets, are in jeopardy. The Class 5's owners, the Tecran, look set to start a war to get it back and Dav suspects Rose isn't the only alien being who survived what happened on the Class 5. And whatever else is out there is playing its own games.

In this race for the truth, he's going to have to go against his leaders and trust the dark horse.

Undone by Daire O'Driscoll

http://www.amazon.com/Undone-Daire-O-Driscoll-ebook/dp/B00K4DOXUG

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Undone-Daire-O-Driscoll-ebook/dp/B00K4DOXUG

I am an aspiring Irish writer currently living in Dublin. I received my Bachelor's Degree at Trinity College Dublin and afterwards spent several years living in Argentina. I have previously published a number of short stories along with some professional sports articles, and have just published my debut novel Undone.

My novel was mostly written in Buenos Aires, living in a miniscule cubicle with partitions for walls.  It was pitch black, with no windows but cockroaches aplenty, many of which were felled by a trusty, empty rum bottle!  I was working several day jobs at the time and working on this in the depths of night time, all of which I reckon is quite likely reflected in the tone of Undone.  My writing in Undone was influenced by a wide variety of sources, but probably most of all by authors like Joseph Conrad, Raymond Chandler and Edgar Allen Poe, along with films by Ingmar Bergman.

After finishing the writing of my book I read so many guide books saying things such as "You have written a book, well done - but that is only the easy part over with!", which at first I probably thought was ridiculous.  Now two years later, after having just self-published it, all I can say is "How right they were!".  I'm already looking forward to stepping back form the organisational stuff and getting stuck back into the fun of writing!  I currently have a good chunk of the first draft of a second novel written.  Hopefully (in a perfect world!) it will be finished by the end of 2014 and be up here soon afterwards.  Hope you enjoy Undone!

Weepers - a mystery/thriller by Nick Chiarkas

Free on Amazon 6/19-6/23


If it moves away from you, it’s food. If it moves toward you, you’re food. 

The 1957 murder of an undercover cop in a New York City housing project has unexpected ties to the unsolved disappearance of a young father walking home in those same projects with his son, Angelo, on Christmas Eve six years before. 
The only witness to the cop killing is Angelo, now 13, while on his way to seek his own revenge in the early morning hours—he is also seen by the killers. 

A series of gripping events forge a union between a priest, a Mafia boss, a police detective, and Angelo, a gang member. In the end, Weepers shows us that the courage of the underdog—despite fear and moral ambiguity—will conquer intimidation.
