A detective obsessed with new-age medicine, a killer, and a talking house fly are just a few of the eclectic characters in Virginian author Nate Gutman’s new novel, Bill the Fly. At times poignant, surreal, and ridiculous, Bill the Fly is the story of the lonely bachelor Jacob Kingsley, who wakes up one morning to find that a fly named Bill has flown in through the open window of his Arizona home, made him breakfast, and told him to bring flowers to the object of his affection, a co-worker named Emily.

As Jacob and Bill’s friendship grows, it becomes obvious that neither of them are who they seem, and the mystery of their true natures is revealed in surprising and darkly hilarious ways.

One reviewer called it a “masterful blend of horror, light-hearted humor, and a keen wit,” and another calls Bill the Fly a “guaranteed delight of a read.”

Bill the Fly is available now in both paperback and Kindle formats through Amazon.com.

Discover The 12 Steps to getting over your Ex using practical and emotional tips from experts

Getting over an ex can be a heartrending problem. For some people it is simply a case of moving on to the next person in line, but if you are not one of these people then it can be very difficult.

In this Book I'm going to teach you the best ways to get over an ex.

I'll also be teaching you

  • How to spot a problem Ex who will make you miserable
  • How to remove a problem Ex from your life
  • How to deal with the “Evil Ex” who is violent or threatening
  • How to deal with emotional effects of a breakup
  • Practical ways to reduce your chances of thinking about your Ex
  • 5 Ways to let go of emotional baggage
  • How to attract the right new people into your life, by learning from the past
  • 4 ways to make a new start in life
  • How to overcome fear of a new life ahead (and of meeting new people)
  • How to avoid being a vulnerable single person as a result of your breakup
  • Finding the right person: A practical guide for finding your true love


There are probably many people offering you advice at this time but the truth is that most people don't really have a clue as to what they are talking about. Many people are comfortably attached to the people they are in a partnership with and usually in a habit forming way, and if they haven't been completely, heart wrenchingly emotionally attached with someone else, they won't understand what you are going through.

The old clichés of, “Just go and find someone else” are generally the advice you are going to hear from friends and family. Don't worry, in this Book I've got your back. I've been there and I understand that another fish is not your problem! The problem is that your life became part of a partnership which no longer exists, and you are still operating as part of that partnership. You are also very probably still in love with the person you broke up with, which does not make the situation any easier.

This guide is also going to cover the break ups where children are involved. If you and your ex have had children together, forgetting your ex isn't so easy. The children you love are going to be forever tied to your ex, and a constant reminder. In looks and even in their smell they will be a reminder. There are ways around this problem at least to a degree so don't worry, they will be addresses in this guide.

Remember, it's not anywhere near as bleak as it looks on the surface.

The Cleopatra Murders - A Mystery By Mic Palmer

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01051BUFM

Susan is the likely target of a homicidal maniac; Jack is the prime suspect. What better way to rekindle a broken romance?

Unfortunately, she’s not particularly receptive. As a matter of fact she’s downright terrified. With Jack’s former girlfriends dropping like flies and the media portraying him as a romantically frustrated loser, whose killing spree was set off by his recent firing from a dead end job, how could she not be? Whether it’s the tabloid journalists, the dime store detectives, or the publicity hungry psychologists, everyone seems to feel that his life was the perfect laboratory for creating a psychopath.

Jack’s only choice then is to catch the killer himself, but the more he learns, the more the evidence seems to point toward him - is there something about himself he doesn't know? As if to drive the point home, he has again begun sleepwalking, the revelation of which causes him to recall aspects of his past long since repressed, not the least of which that night as a child when he woke up covered in blood.

Rocked to his core, he decides to wait it out, keep to himself, do some thinking, but that’s before Susan goes missing, and all at once he finds himself doing things he never thought possible.

To get her back, however, he will not only have to evade the police, outsmart a malicious duo of reporters, and escape from a gang of sadistic killers, but most difficult of all, face up to his demons - the only question is who will he be when it’s all over?

Ruby's Choice - a paranormal romance by D.F. Jones

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0986122742

Ruby’s Choice is the debut novel by D.F. Jones and book one of the Ditch Lane Diaries.

Ruby’s Choice is a coming of age story set in the late 1970’s in Middle Tennessee with a splash of paranormal which will blossom in the second and third books of the series.

Ever since Ruby discovered an amber-encased spider web in the Campbell Ridge Cave, she has had dreams of births, deaths and glimpses into the future.

Ruby’s shift is coming to a close at Everglade General Store. As she stacks the last row of bath soap, Ruby recalls the delicious dream she had the night before. In the dream, a gorgeous guy is kissing a tickle spot, just behind her left earlobe, sending shivers up her spine. If only that dream could come true, instead of the one where a state trooper gives her a seventy-five dollar speeding ticket!

Ruby snaps back to reality when she hears the store’s front door bells chime. If she didn’t know any better, she’d say the frickin’ Adonis from her sexy dream just walked through the door.

Reed Jackson and Brent Brown introduce themselves to Ruby as members of the local baseball team her brother, George, manages. Brent mentions they specifically came out to the store to meet George’s hot, little sister. Ruby is slightly confused when she hears Reed murmur Tap It under his breath, but then she remembers the rumor going around campus about Reed and Brent’s dating game, where the two best friends compete to have a girl profess undying love to one of them. And Tap It is a winner takes all—all of what, though, Ruby has no clue. Ruby decides that she’ll play along, but according to her rules. She’ll suss out if either of these players is worthy of her love and respect.

One thing is for sure, Ruby is no pawn.

Who will be Ruby’s Choice?

Shallow Lives... Shallow Seas by Michael J. Rowbottom

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00K0Y0D1W

http://www.amazon.com/Shallow-Lives-Seas-Michael-Rowbottom-ebook/dp/B00K0Y0D1W

Perhaps the story of Gulf War 2 has been told now...or has it? After all, they didn't find any WMD, did they!
No, they didn't, but could they have done?
Now there's a thought, in fact, keep on thinking it because Shallow Lives... Shallow Seas will help you along the road.
What if...someone started panicking low down the pecking order in Virginia?
What if...they thought they were meant to find the weapons...even if they weren't there?
Nothing like a good conspiracy theory to get everyone fired up...and this could have happened...maybe.
Let's get this straight, the idea behind the story of Shallow Lives... Shallow Seas and the characters are entirely invented by the author. Michael J. Rowbottom had an idea that a lot was depending on finding that WMD in the early days of the war and when nothing showed up except a bleached out chem-lab then there would have been a lot of perspiring from the top to the bottom of the coalition.
And midway down there might have been - there probably wasn't - but there might have been a group of people who believed their jobs could only survive if they found the smoking gun.
Pretty good start, then the rest is from Mike's imagination with this shadowy bunch of non-people setting up some weapons to be found by coalition forces in the desert.
And it would haver worked if only...
If only A naive expat in a neighbouring emirate hadn't stumbled across a dead prostitute in his apartment block...
If only the Royal Navy hadn't turned up the decomposing corpses of four poor young men while on a minesweeping patrol out of that emirate...
If only there hadn't been a power struggle in that emirate...
If only there hadn't been an important bye-election in the UK to complicate it even more because the constituency makes weapons and needs to sell them to the emirate.
Still, life shouldn't be about if-onlys. That's what the very lazy Gulf correspondent of Randalls News Agency forced himself to say when he had to
get up from his sunlounger to investigate this little series of connections.
Thrill to the heat of the Gulf in August, the life of the expat and how they try to live in a regime which may not be quite what they're used to.
Shallow Lives...no deeper than the skin of a Creme Brulee.
Shallow Seas...not deep enough to keep any secrets.
All yours, have fun!

All of our best dates end up in the emergency room....
I planned the perfect proposal. Plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and--her favorite--tiramisu. The perfect setting. The perfect woman.
The perfect everything.
Dad gave me my late mother's engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn't care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, and that will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the internet.
I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses.
And it was perfect.
Until Shannon swallowed the ring.

Forager - Science Fiction by Peter R Stone

Free on Amazon!

http://www.amazon.com/Forager-Dystopian-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B00GUB9DGA

She was a slip of a girl, around five-foot-nothing I reckon. She dressed like a Japanese anime character, and didn’t look a day over seventeen.

I rescued her and her boss from Skel savages when I was foraging for scrap metals in Melbourne’s ruins. She spoke to me in Japanese, thanking me for saving them, and that they’d come here to establish a trade agreement with our town. I’ve never heard a word of Japanese before, but somehow, I understood her. How does that work?

When I got the two of them back to the town, the Custodians whisked them away to the town's exclusive 'North End' district.  I figured that was the last I’d seen of her.

I figured wrong. The very next day she came to see me before I went to work, and surprising me by handing me a Japanese obento lunch she’d made.

I figured she was trying to repay the debt she owed me for saving her life.

I was wrong about that too.

Life is a Beautiful Thing (Book One) - a technothriller science fiction series by Harmon Cooper

Book link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W0NPWR6

Hallucinatory cyberpunk. Meta sci-fi satire. The future is futile.

2083. A pollute-addicted therapist named Meme battles his way through his mind and LA at the seat of his pants alongside a beautiful android escort with a surprising secret. With the Federal Corporate Government hunting him, will he make it to safety in time?

The hunt is on.

Part techno thriller, part literary science fiction, Life is a Beautiful Thing is a series that questions what it means to be human, a book that offers a shocking glimpse into a dystopian future fueled by corporate deceit, bawdy sex and high-end intoxicants.

From the author:

The writing journey that has accumulated in the Life is a Beautiful Thing series began with Nanowrimo in 2011. While on its surface the series may seem shocking – both through its imagery and through its usage of multiple languages, vulgarities, violence, sexual orientations and seemingly random hallucinatory passages – days upon days were put into the conceptualization of this series. While some words may seem invented, they're not. While some concepts may seem over the top, many are heavily grounded in reality. What the book really is, if I can say as much, is a graphic, sexually-charged, gory way to begin a discussion on machine-learning. Yes, we are a way's off from singularity and the other future outcomes many have warned us about; however, this fact doesn't mean any of these things are less real nor does it mean any of the concepts in this book aren't feasible. The ability for any of these notions to stand the test of time remains to be seen.

In this series, I hope to capture everything from the hallucinatory prose of Hunter S. Thompson, to the techno-irony of Phillip K. Dick and Vonnegut, to the sheer literary abandon of Henry Miller and Bret Easton Ellis and the genre-neutral works of David Mitchell and Karen Russell. If I succeed even halfway in this endeavor I consider it a triumph. Thank you for taking the time to read this and get ready for the ride of your life.

Constructed To Rot: A Critical Reflection On Homelessness / non-fiction by Bruno De Oliveira

http://www.amazon.co.uk/CONSTRUCTED-TO-ROT-REFLECTION-HOMELESSNESS-ebook/dp/B00WCWGVUW

http://www.amazon.com/Constructed-Rot-Critical-Reflection-Homelessness-ebook/dp/B00WCWGVUW

Homelessness is more than just accommodation. Homelessness certainly involves concepts of visibility, oppression, domination and also political violence of bodies left out to rot. Given that, a sound and humane political system must combine accommodation, security, warmth, freedom and space to grow for children and couples and older people, with development and refuge and support with access to work and culture, with good relations with the community. Homeless people are under an oppressive and disempowering condition. However, the political order can’t just sacrifice people outright but they can punish them softly like a boa constrictor that suffocates its prey slowly but surely. [...] The homeless people’s suffering belongs to amusement of our political order under a game over the right of marginalised group being transformed into citizens for merely punishment and humiliation. The Public Space Protection Orders is a penalty over one’s condition suffering – it is a fine over the disempowered for being disempowered. This act allows power to fragment the homeless into sub-humans punishable for the state of utter misery. Thus, such attempt to a policy such as The Public Space Protection Orders can be seen as something that will make life in overall restored and cleaner as it is seemly acting under the justification of punishing the oppressed under a political instrument. The homeless people are being reduced to – less than the bare – under a state’s restriction over their life to be in certain places.

Market forces which are driven by self indulgent needs designing the ultimate human experiences such as intimacy, solidarity and commitment as not enough and no longer needed resulting in an ongoing emptiness and on the illusion of endless enjoyment.

Bruno comes from a poor background. He grew up in a slum in Recife, Brazil. I have seen my childhood friends consumed by drugs, by the trafficking of the former and by the lack of opportunity, and there is where my motivation comes from to argue against social oppression. Now, the author is a doctorate researcher on social inequalities as MPhil/PhD Candidate Applied Social Sciences, M.A. in Community Psychology and BA (Hons) Applied Psychology and Sociology. Finally, Bruno is a Black coffee drinker by day, coffee without milk by night and born on planet Earth (That will matter sooner then we think).

365 Ways to Live Happily Single and Childfree by Lauryn Valencia

http://www.amazon.com/Ways-Live-Happily-Single-Childfree-ebook/dp/B01016HQBI

I wrote this book to inspire those who are single and childfree to embrace their solitude.
The purpose of me writing this book is to deliver the message that everybody that’s single without children isn’t miserable and everybody that’s married with children are not happy and to encourage those who are single and childfree to enjoy your freedom and live life to the fullest.

In this book I provide a list of perks to being single and childfree, list ways to celebrate being single and childfree during the holidays, list ways to celebrate Valentine’s day being single, a list of songs to celebrate the single and childfree life, a list of things to do when you get bored, list of responses to statements people say to convince you to have children, solutions to overcome the disadvantages to living single and childfree, simple tips on living healthy, and even inspirational quotes.

This book is not intended to attack those who are married, it is not intended to attack those who have children, and it is not intended to attack those who are both married and have children.

I hope that this book can help and inspire those who are single and childfree.

Between Two Worlds: Books 1 and 2 - a romance by E Journey

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YO773ZK

Between Two Worlds is a family saga. Youthful, engaging tales of love from a feminist-realist perspective. Three tales of a daughter, her mother, and her brother in the Halverson family, two different but adjacent eras, different cultures, and lives that are parallel, inevitably intersecting, but personal. This volume includes Books 1 and 2

The series begins with Hello, My Love!, the world of “bright, blonde, beautiful Elise Halverson” who is focused on her career. One that – as far as she knows – does not involve men like Greg Thorpe. A modern-day pastiche of Jane Austen and Elizabeth Gaskell novels, the first book has been praised for having “ … a new, different and refreshing literary spin on the romance genre (Bookaholic Ramblings)."

Heartache and the specter of revenge. Unable to deny their feelings, Greg and Elise spend a night together. A jilted fiancée exacts revenge and forces them to face who they are and what they really want.

A love tale of this day. A delicious romance spiced with a twist of whodunit, this escapist fare also takes us into the inner life (thoughts, hopes, and doubts) of the main protagonists as they contend with realities that often face couples in compelling relationships—revenge of a jilted lover, past relationships, abortion, career choices, reactions of friends and relatives.

Book 2, Hello, Agnieszka!, is a sequel/prequel hybrid to the first book and starts with an attempted suicide that forces Elise’s mother to disclose secrets buried in her past, a past largely unknown to her children. GoodbooksToday Reviews hails it as “... an intricate, heart-wrenching coming-of-age story about family and love.”

Passion for music. A young Agnieszka discovers her passion upon hearing her grand-aunt Jola, a concert pianist in Poland, give a recital. Jola hones her talent and feeds her dreams of becoming a concert pianist.

Shattered dreams. But real-world problems, thorny relations with a mother tied to her roots and betrayal by lusty Aunt Jola shatter her dreams.

A 70s love story. Young Agnieszka finds love that renews her hopes for happiness. Sadly, it ends, cut short by forces outside anyone’s control. Sustained by music and memories of her first love, Agnieszka grows and gets a second chance at happiness.

Ancient creatures stir upon the face of Kuln, and times grow dark throughout the lands of Anaria. An ordinary boy reluctantly joins his mentor in an effort to find out what afflicts the lands, but time grows short. Chaos is growing... and they are being hunted. The realms are inexorably moving towards conflict. Forces of legend stir as the balance shifts. Eordeland itself trembles, and at the heart of the unrest moves a small group desperately seeking answers, thrown together by circumstance. In their journey they find wonder, the loss of innocence, and something far greater than themselves. For Karland, the sights, experiences and beings he will encounter will change him forever. The darkness spreads, an ancient evil awakes, and the stakes could yet be higher than anyone imagined... Where is the source of the unrest? Will they discover it in time? Will it even mean anything? And what will be their fate when The Serpent Calls?

The first book in a stunning new Fantasy trilogy set in a detailed world of imagination, legend, magic, and adventure.

---

As a lover of fantasy and sci-fi, for years Chris worked to bring his own vision and homage to great works of fantasy to life. Finally, the serpent called... and the fates of men and nations are in print. The book has met with resoundingly good reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.co.uk, with reviews stating they "haven't enjoyed a book so much since Game of Thrones" and the book being described as "what epic fantasy should feel like", and even "Science Fantasy". Somethings are familiar, but it is a hitherto unknown world full of mystery, promise and high adventure.

Chris works training IT consultants and training body and mind with research, climbing, martial arts and gym when he isn't writing, lazing, playing music, or computer games. He tends to wander around outdoors and believes in getting stuff done."

Breaking Out: Part II - a paranormal romance by Michelle Diener

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011TALBVQ

Breaking Out: Part II is the sequel to a short story originally published in two anthologies as Breaking Out, but which has now been retitled Breaking Out: Part I. At the time I wrote Breaking Out (Part I), specifically for a charity anthology benefitting cancer research, I had only written historical fiction and fantasy, and paranormal romance was a new foray for me. The overwhelming response I got to Breaking Out from readers was the impetus I needed to experiment with other genres, and I've gone on to write science fiction.

Breaking Out: Part II is dedicated to all the readers who emailed me or contacted me through twitter and Facebook saying they loved Breaking Out: Part I, and asked if I could write more about the main characters, Kelli, Nate and Giles. It motivated me to steal an hour here and an hour there while I was working under deadline for other projects to write Part II.  And I think those readers will be happy to hear Breaking Out: Part II double the length of Breaking Out: Part I.

Thank you for loving my characters as much as I do.

About Breaking Out: Part II

Kelli, Nate and Giles know what it is to be imprisoned. They spent years locked away in a secret research lab. But now they're free, and they stole something important just before they escaped – a list of others like themselves, sent to other facilities for further experimentation.

Their plan? To break out every single one.

Nina Calvados has been in a new facility for four months. She's kept a low profile, been careful to be cooperative and helpful. And so far, she's been mostly left alone. So when two other inmates appeal to her for help, her heart may want to oblige but her head is screaming walk away.

Only, something bad is going down, and Nina realizes she's been fooling herself. No one's bought her low profile act. And if she's going to crash, she might as well crash hard. After all, it's not as if anyone's coming for her, is it?

Breaking Out: Part II is a novella of 21,000 words and has not previously been released in any anthology. This is the first time it will be available for sale to readers.

Breaking Out: Part I - a paranormal romance by Michelle Diener

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011VFEB2A

Breaking Out: Part I started life as a short story entitled Breaking Out, which I wrote for inclusion in the ENTANGLED Anthology, a box set of short stories and novellas for which all proceeds went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I’m proud to say we raised over $12,000 for the BCRF with ENTANGLED.

After the anthology was taken down from sale, I was asked if I would include Breaking Out in the ENTRANCED box set, and it was great to have the story out again, although that anthology, too, is no longer available for sale.

I’m really happy to make Breaking Out: Part I available for sale at last outside of an anthology, and the impetus for it was the many readers of both anthologies who contacted me saying how much they loved it, and would I write more?

I did :)

About Breaking Out: Part I

Kelli Barrack has spent the last three years imprisoned in Dr. Greenway's facility plotting her escape, but when her chance comes one Halloween evening, it's in a way she never expected.
Nate Halliway is being removed from the facility, but he refuses to go without his special forces team-mate, Giles. When his resistance lands him in Kelli's cell, they both get a chance for freedom, a chance they take with both hands.

But as Giles, Nate and Kelli fight their way out, Kelli discovers that the most insidious danger to her freedom might lie within her, rather than in the small army out to stop them.
Breaking Out: Part I is an 11,000 word short story.
