The Pedestal - kindle ebook by Daniel Wimberley 

Dear Universe,

Crap happens. I get that. Even in this global super community, where no superficial whim must go unrealized, things are going to occasionally blow a circuit. I get it, really. The question I’d like an answer to, oh wise and infinite one, is why must crap keep happening specifically to me? I mean, is it something I said? Please advise.

Regarding your overall handiwork: nice job on the planets and stars and whatnot. Having said that, I wonder if I might persuade you to kindly sweep up your space debris? Should I end up a grudging refugee headed to Mars, it would be great to not be vaporized en route by a chunk of your cosmic dandruff. Just saying.

Sincerely yours with hugs and kisses,

Wilson Abby

P.S. Since I’m already throwing a wish list out there, I might as well ask for a little help in the, uh—girlfriend department. Preferably one not of the digital or crazy varieties, if possible? I’ve tried both of those, and you can keep them. Thanks!

Wilson Abby’s life as a carefree programmer has reached a crossroads. Since birth, Wilson has known unconditional comfort and security in a global super-community. Thanks to the planet’s NEXUS framework, instant gratification is a mere transaction away. But when his closest friend mysteriously turns up dead, Wilson suspects that not all is as it seems.

Peeling back a veneer of half-truths, Wilson makes a startling discovery—one that people will kill to bury, starting with Wilson’s coworkers and loved ones.

As deadly forces close in, Wilson has no choice but to abandon his home for the seclusion of an off-planet research base. There, far from the probing gaze of the NEXUS, a beautiful scientist is busy playing God—with monstrous consequences.

The Pedestal is a thrilling glimpse into a society madly infatuated with integration and endless consumer upgrades. Wilson must battle gangsters, conspiring politicians and hordes of flesh-eating creations before civilization is toppled from its pedestal.

My Plan to Ruin Your Life: The first recovery workbook written by your addiction, by Ken Montrose

My Plan To Ruin Your Life is a workbook geared to help people struggling to see how their addiction controls them. The voice of the workbook is the reader's addiction.

Don't be mad, I'm here to improve your chances of staying sober. I wrote this workbook to tell you exactly how I plan to destroy your life, just to see if that would make the game a little more interesting.
Just to be really fair I’ll leave space for you to plan how you will defeat me. I’ll walk you right up to the trap, show you all the slippery spots, and let you see what I’m using for bait. You do what you can to stop me.

As part of my "EVERY ADDICT LEFT ON HIS BEHIND" program, I've come up with a drug for everyone. I've even got heroin cheap enough for kids to buy with the money they made flipping burgers.

Any con man can use someone's weaknesses. I will use your strengths against you. For example, I will convince the intellectual he's not an alcoholic sex addict, he's " “caught between man’s inherent bacchanalian, yet life-affirming tendencies, and the puritanical substitution of the Biblical for the bibulous life.”

It is a story based during the reign of Saddam Hussein, where Ahmed is wrongly suspected by the Iraqi Government of being a CIA agent and is tortured relentlessly.  The story is centered around Sarah, the immigration lawyer, who has to face the tribulations of dealing with a broken immigration system but also with racism.  The book while entertaining offers a good perspective of how the system works.  For those who want to learn about the immigration court process, defensive asylum, u visas, and family petitions, this book offers a different perspective on the matter.  The best part of this book is that the same US immigration system which is tormenting Ahmad is in conflict with the American system of justice.  A very compelling and insightful story combining immigration law, romance, action and suspense.  A really good book to read.

A Place in the Son: Fitly Joined Together in Love and Growing in Christ - Category: Christian Living - a book by Clarence Ogle


A Place in the Son: Fitly Joined Together in Love and Growing in Christ removes the veil over unseen spiritual truths and exposes common misconceptions about God and the Holy Bible. We humans are spirits, for we were made in the image of God, and in God's likeness; and God is Spirit. We are eternal spirits who have a soul and live in a temporary body.

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." "God is love." God is "the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort." God knows us better than we know ourselves and loves us more than we love ourselves. The Bible encourages us to ask God for good things, knowing that in Christ all the promises of God are "yes" and "Amen."

God has a calling(s) and a place in the body of Christ for each of His unique children. We will walk in the love, joy, peace and all the fruit of the Spirit when we give our hearts and our lives to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us.

Confessions of a Side Piece Baby - a romantic thriller by Dexter Shaw

Confessions of a Side Piece Baby follows Lashaun Johnson as he confesses the sins of his life in this crazy, sexy, romantic and shocking crime thriller. You can download it to any kindle device at

This urban fiction novel chronicles the main character’s life beginning at the age of three. Lashaun’s mother is the longtime mistress of a married man, which in urban vernacular is also known as a “side piece”, and he is the product of their illicit union or a side piece baby.

Lashaun is funny, charming, attractive and cute but he is also a killer. The book is written in an action packed Quentin Tarantino style with some parts so shocking it becomes hard to put down. It is sensual and seductive the way women love as well as action filled and intriguing the way men enjoy.

There are very few romantic action thrillers on the market today. This book was written with couples in mind to give them something they can read and enjoy together and then discuss after the kids have gone to bed.

The final innovative twist to Confessions of a Side Piece baby is it paints a portrait or highlights the common attributes of a domestic abuser in the main character that abusers normally keep hidden. The goal is to reveal these attributes so that women will recognize a domestic abuser when they first meet him and avoid getting involved with him.

Lashun is sweet, loving and kind in many cases but also deadly. You won’t believe a young man could be so heartless or that so many women would try to love him as they do while you listen to the confessions of a side piece baby.

Locksmith's Closet - kindle ebook by Paul Briggs

What if you could stop it from happening — but you didn’t know how?

What would you do? What risks would you take? Who would you ask for help?

Still grieving the death of his father and adjusting to life in a new home, Locksmith discovers a portal to the future while investigating a strange noise in his bedroom closet.

Once they learn that the future can be changed, the two of them are determined to explore the new world and decipher the clues to discover what will go wrong and when, so that they can stop it from ever happening. They embark on a quest for answers that is long, difficult, and marred by unexpected tragedy that brings Lock to the edge of despair.

To make matters worse, Locksmith is determined to keep anyone else (especially his overbearing mother and older brother) from finding out about the portal. And his family has an enemy who already knows about it and will go to any length to claim their house and the portal for himself.

Homeless - Ebook by Delena Epstein

EVERY STORY has a beginning, a middle, and an end. One’s perception of each often determines the ending of the tale. After all, there is always more than one conclusion, depending on the insight we have of our characters.

Sometimes it becomes difficult to relate with your protagonist (could be plural), unless you understand where they have been, what motivates them, what makes them tick, or how deeply ingrained their morals are.
Are they a hero, a villain, or a victim?
Only you can decide this question, but first you must ask yourself the following:
How far would you go to get what you want in life?
What would you give up?
Whom would you sacrifice?

I have tossed and turned many a night, waking in a cold sweat, struggling with my conscience, debating if I should have written this story. Because at the end, I found I did not like myself much when I finally had the courage to answer the questions.
Will you?

Please Talk about Me When I'm Gone - kindle ebook by Sean Murphy

Amazon link:

When my mother died in 2002 at the age of fifty-nine, I found myself both shattered and honored to have been a witness. In order to live and to keep her memory alive, I needed to make sense of her death.

I knew I would inevitably write about her, but I wasn’t certain what form the material would take. Eventually I realized it could be –it had to be– a memoir. The result is Please Talk about Me When I’m Gone.

The antagonist of this particular tale is cancer, but implicit in the narrative is an appreciation that a struggle with illness—and the ways it can unite or disintegrate families—is a true story for too many people. It can be a horror story or a ghost story, a love story and a real-life fairy tale, where memory and devotion are capable of outlasting death.

The memoir unfolds in a range of voices—first person, second person, third—from the points of view of a mother, a father, a son. The story of one woman’s life and death is interpolated with meditations on the causes and effects of alienation and empathy, faith and friendship, and the cultivation of an artistic sensibility. The whole is an examination—and interrogation—of sickness, grief, love, and remembrance.

My ultimate goal is to promote awareness, and I am working closely with cancer-affiliated groups and charities to raise funds. My experience has reinforced a belief that nobody should (or need to) go through this alone: if my memoir builds solidarity and empowers anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation, I know I’m honoring my mother’s memory in a way she would advocate.

Using a little magical woman who weaves just a bit of magic into children's lives, she inspires the confidence the children once thought did not exist. I also hope to bring a smile to children's faces as they realize that ultimately we are all the same deep down and all have similar experiences. The only difference is how we learn to handle them; and this series is meant to show them how to do just that!

This first book shows Derek, a sweet boy who has trouble finding the right words in most situations. Using his hoody, she turns Derek into a robot who knows all the answers and right things to say. Derek has some trouble adjusting at first but then grows to like being able to speak in public and make new friends. They say that quiet people have the loudest minds, so I incorporated some witty jokes and mental thoughts because the adage is indeed true of Derek.

Also found inside of this book, and the subsequent ones to come, are Easter eggs for the other books. You meet friends of Derek who also have lessons they learned or will soon be learning from Mrs.Bumblebottom! I also left little Easter eggs about myself throughout the book, such as I own a parrot myself!!

The Ghost of Caroline Wald - kindle ebook by Michael E. Henderson

Frankie Johns spots what appears to be a teenage girl through the window of the old house up the street.

Problem is, the house, a Gothic-looking structure said to have been the home of an undertaker, is abandoned and boarded up. No one lives there, and it’s unlikely that a young girl would go there alone. Frankie decides that it must be a ghost.

He enlists the aid of his friend Dan to go to the house late at night and investigate. They don’t find anything.

When Frankie investigates on his own, he meets the ghost of Caroline Wald, who has been dead for 200 years. He likes her. She’s pretty, and he enjoys talking with her.

Turns out she’s buried in the old cemetery by the river. In the casket with her is her diary. She convinces Frankie to dig it up and bring it to her. When he does, he realizes that this sweet little ghost may not be what she appears to be.

The Ghost of Caroline Wald is a story about a rebellious young man, just turned eighteen, and testing the boundaries of being an adult. Not sure what to do with himself, he dedicates his energy to trying to understand the ghost. In the process, he learns a lot about himself, his relationships, and his place in the world.

Funny, poignant, and sometimes scary, readers young and old should enjoy it.

Bottleneck - Our human interface with reality Non-Fiction Science, by Richard Epworth

KDP select Free promotion from February 23 to February 27

Bottleneck is a book about human learning. I always had a passion for understanding things and distrusted explanations without evidence. I was part of the UK research team that brought optical fibre communications to the world. While spending four decades developing ways of squeezing ever higher information rates down optical fibres, I became fascinated by the contrastingly tiny rate that we humans can actually absorb any new information. The implications seemed so incredible that I began to research just how our senses perceive the world around us, initially using eye tracking technology.
I discovered that most of what we experience is a story constructed in our minds to make sense of our past and present. This book reveals the evidence for our narrow learning bottleneck, and explores the shocking implications both for technology and for ourselves. It provides scientific insights into a wealth of human experiences such as flawed memory and prejudice, and describes the huge difference between recognising what is familiar to us, and what is truly new.. Bottleneck has been ten years in the making. I have taken care to make the topic accessible to readers without any great knowledge of science, while including sufficient detailed evidence and references to satisfy others.

X: A Collection of Horror by C.M. Saunders

X: A Collection of Horror

The first collection of horror and dark fiction from the critically acclaimed author C.M. Saunders, including three previously unpublished stories, plus an introduction and extensive notes. Also features exclusive artwork by Greg Chapman.

WARNING: Adult Material.

Don't you love it when something you see or hear forces you to think of something in a slightly different way? Sometimes there isn't even a eureka moment, there's a little shift, the smallest change in perception that skews reality just enough so it cracks open to allow something different to enter your life. A little nugget you can take something from, that can maybe benefit you in some way in the future. The future is a big place. Anything can happen.

All these stories have a history.  They are not linked in any way, but some may be connected by common threads, or were written in the same time frame. Throughout, you will undoubtedly be able to identify the author's slightly sardonic sense of humour and gravitational pull toward the dark side. Meet serial killers, ghosts, monsters and the disturbed, along with a few drug addicts and vagabonds. They all have stories to tell, and they all want you to listen.

Table of Contents: Introduction: That's Entertainment, A Hell of my Own Creation, A Thin Disguise, Monkey Man, The Awful Truth, Mr. C, Fame / Infamy: A Deconstruction, Another False Dawn, The Night Everything Changed, The Devil & Jim Rosenthal, Club Culture, Afterword

I Stopped Time - kindle ebook by Jane Davis

New Fiction from Former winner of the Daily Mail First Novel Award

Wouldn't you feel cheated if the woman you'd imagined was the villain of your childhood turned out to be someone rather extraordinary?

Edwardian Brighton. A wide-eyed girl enters Mr Parker's photographic studio and receives her first lesson about the rising medium that is to shape her life: "Can you think of a really good memory? Perhaps you can see it when you close your eyes. Now think how much better it would be if you could take it out and look at whenever you wanted to!"
2009: Disgraced politician Sir James Hastings has resigned himself to living out his retirement in a secluded Surrey village. He doesn't react when he learns that the mother who had abandoned him dies at the age of 108: he imagined she had died many years ago. Brought up by his father, a charismatic war-hero turned racing driver, the young James, torn between blaming himself and longing, eventually dismissed her as the 'villain' of his childhood. But, when he inherits her life's work - a photography collection spanning over six decades - he is forced to both confront his past and re-evaluate what he wants from his old age. Assisted by student Jenny Jones, who has recently lost her own mother to cancer, Sir James is persuaded to look at the photographs as if he is seeing through his mother's eyes, only to discover an extraordinary tale of courage and sacrifice.
"Three. I have three stories," Lottie Parker tells her solicitor while putting her affairs in order. "But it was Oscar Wilde who said that a story is almost certainly a lie."

Where did you find your inspiration for 'I Stopped Time'?Reading a biography of Lee Miller, one of my heroines. I knew her photography but, as it turned out, very little of her life. She was an extraordinary, extraordinary person. A sought-after fashion model, who became a muse to surrealist photographers and artists such as Man Ray and Picasso. But she had always yearned to be on the other side of the lens and, in time, she became highly respected for her own photography. At the outbreak of World War II she became dissatisfied with her modelling work and documented the Blitz for Vogue, then underwent yet another transformation to become the only woman in combat photo journalism in Europe, taking incredible personal risks. Lee recorded the first use of napalm at the battle of St. Malo, the liberation of Paris, and she was there when the victims of Nazi concentration camps were liberated.

Her personal relationships were never straightforward, but it a huge testament to the strength of her personality that all of her ex-lovers became friends. She eventually settled down in Sussex with the artist and curator, Roland Penrose, with whom she had a son, Anthony. He knew Lee as an embarrassing mother and had no idea of her history until, after she died, he discovered her collection of work. I found his comment that he was cheated out of knowing someone really very extraordinary extremely poignant, and it set me on the road to discovering one of my main characters, Sir James Hastings.

Other things, I stumbled upon along the way. One of the things that happened while I was writing a book that spans the period of the First World War was the death of Harry Patch. I had been deeply moved watching and reading about the histories of the last of the Veterans, and admired him greatly for his decision to speak out after so many years' silence. After all that time had passed, you could still see how raw his emotions were.

  • 'I could really smell the salty sea air and hear the waves rolling in over the pebbles.' Jemma Bastable
  • 'Jane Davis is truly a writer's writer. She has taken an entire century - a feat in itself worthy of Ken Follett or Gabriel Garcia Marquez - and covered it with the richness of her characterisation, presenting a family that is beautifully flawed, brimming with affection, and inimitably human.' Book blogger, J Metcalf
  • 'This book is utterly compelling, carefully blending together the stories of a mother and son to create a family history running through the twentieth century.' Amazon reviewer, Melissa
  • 'I was hooked from the very first page.' Kathleen Crowley

5 things compulsive Goodread's contributor Molly loved about I Stopped Time.

1. The contrast between the times, the early part of the twentieth century was contrasted by present day, in the same way that childhood and adulthood were contrasted.
2. The secondary characters. Sometimes I feel that secondary characters are often lost in book but I felt they were equally given a voice in this story. I really grew to love Alfie especially!
3. Mystery. There was a lot of mystery in the book, why did Charlotte leave ? why did she never return ? I felt that the questions were tied up well.
4. The setting was amazing. I felt really immersed in book especially in Lottie's childhood Brighton.
5. The heartbreak, especially for James, there was some serious emotion in this book!

Strega (Book I) - kindle ebook by Karen Monahan Fernandes

Foreword Firsts 2013 Book Awards Finalist.

When high school senior Jay Bonifacio finds her grandmother brutally murdered in their small-town home, the scar left by the death of her parents years earlier is ripped open. She is devastated, but she is not nearly as terrified as she should be. Jay is a Strega. Like her mother and grandmother, she is a descendant of the original Strega of ancient Etruria—gifted women of the woods bestowed with godly power, and the world’s first witches. With the truth withheld from her all her life, Jay is blindsided when her power is unbound. Demons are coming for her. They killed the people she loved most to get to her, and they won’t rest until she is dead. Forced to embrace her identity if only to survive, Jay uncovers a past life when her ruthless enemy’s hatred for her was born, and she rediscovers an eternal love that has burned throughout lifetimes. Fighting for her life, she is drawn back into an ancient battle between the virtuous and the wicked that threatens to destroy her and all of humankind.

Strega is a fast-paced paranormal thriller with a strong female protagonist. Jay is a modern heroine that is forced on an arduous journey of self-discovery. As she reawakens to her destiny as a Strega, lifetimes of truth descend upon her. To right the wrongs of the past, to protect all that is good, and to reclaim an epic love she has lost again and again across ages, Jay digs deep to find her true power and faces a seemingly undefeatable enemy.

Much exists beneath the surface of Jay’s adventure. Demons and death traps are multi-dimensional. On the surface, they are terrifying fun that takes you out of your reality and tosses you into a fantasy world. But under the covers, they represent very real struggle. We all have things we fear, things we run from, things we want to slay, things that cause us pain. Heartbreak, limitations, disease, death. And Jay faces these challenges, navigating through the storm with courage and strength. She doesn’t give up without a major fight. And it’s because of her determination to overcome such staggering adversity that her true power blossoms.

Family Faith Land and Mysticism: The Spiritual Traveler Myth - kindle ebook by Robert Osenenko

My life was as a normal boy from a regular home. I loved to walk the train tracks in the morning to find the small trail trains left behind as they went through the New Jersey Pinelands. As an adult the train went by faster and little or no useful remnants were found. I continued traveling to strange places and was greeted with reservation and suspicion. I suppose at times people feared me. The myth of me became the myth of every young boy becoming part of the invading army, the noise and smoke coming in the distance, when the earth shakes, and dirty, dusty boys line the roadsides afraid but drawn to the train-like truck convoy. Their life, though in a different country was a life as many poor boys in war and trauma who collected soda bottles for candy throughout South Jersey. We were the poor farm boys with little secrets we told through stories of half truths. Eventually my brother and I told the truth about what we were taught and I am sure it was taken as just more of the stories boys told while listening to tall tales for adults who traveled the world. Most of those men came back with pieces missing and lived lives that were remarkable. My grandparents and the Jewish farmers that tutored us asked if we would want to be like them. Foolishly we said we did. Over the course of our lives, we traveled the world and came back from war. By this time our grandparents, the Jewish tutors, and most of our friends had died. But on occasion, a couple of us gather together in warm remembrance of them as they appear and remind us of their tendency to twist fate and cheat death. After all, they would say, "If you don't like those cards that were dealt for your life draw your own." What constant kidders they were, of the truth and power of the spiritual path.

The mountainside disintegrated – collapsing, crushing everything in its path. Two survivors who barely escaped being buried by the rockfall cannot shake the horrifying images of their hiking companions disappearing beneath the deluge of boulders. No one could have survived.

But they are wrong. One is still alive. Alone, injured, and terrified, she struggles to endure as hours turn to days, her water supply dwindles, and her body weakens. Long-buried memories surface and deep-seated fears threaten her survival as much as the harsh, high-altitude mountain environment. Her list of Things to Do Before I Die is short: find water, find people to help me, see my loved ones again.

Families of the victims face the crippling impact of their grief, but life goes on around them – at times hurling additional challenges, at times offering support. A husband in a desperate state of denial rushes to the trailhead to search for his wife only to be turned away by the sheriff and search parties. A wife succumbs to financial incentives to protect her children’s future, possibly at the cost of sacrificing their emotional well-being. A brother and sister, devastated by the loss of the mother who raised them by herself, face an unwelcome visitor from their childhood, trying to cash in on their personal loss.

Emotionally charged and engrossing, Rockfall plumbs the depths of tragedy and celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit.

The Kaiserine's Vampyre - a supernatural adventure by Derek Paterson

All Manfred wanted was a fast horse out of town.  Injured in battle, homeless, friendless and out of work, Manfred came to High Sazburg in search of a job.  Instead, he found himself in jail, sentenced to death by hanging for killing several Wardens in a back alley duel.  Things can't get much worse than this.  What Manfred doesn't know is he's about to be offered a fate perhaps worse than death by the most feared man in the Empire.

Otto Thenck, head of the Ministry of State Security, nicknamed the Magician, because he has been known to make men and women disappear . . . permanently, comes to visit Manfred.  His offer: fight under an assumed name in the Arena against other warriors for the title of Kaiserine’s Champion.  Should Manfred survive he’ll get a sack of silver and a fast horse.

Of course nothing is ever as straight forward as that with the Magician. Before Manfred knows it he’s involved with a plot that concerns the elite circles of the Empire, perhaps even the Kaiserine herself.  If he’s going to get that horse Manfred will have to match his wits and his sword against the fighters in the Arena, the Wardens and Thenck.  As if that wasn’t enough to keep a man busy, there is the question of the vampyres, once thought to be fairy tale monsters to scare little children.

If there is anything left of Manfred when the sun sets he just might get out of town with his soul intact.

The Kaiserine's Vampyre contains the novellas "The Kaiserine's Champion" and "The Vampyre's Kiss" for one action packed supernatural thriller.

THE SHEIK AND THE SLAVE - kindle ebook by Nicola Italia

The Sheik and the Slave was originally written as long chapters on a website dedicated to erotic literature. The website is fueled by reader's appreciation and The Sheik won several romance awards. I am especially proud to have won best romance story for 2004. I began to have a following for The Sheik and my readers would contact me to encourage my writing and to keep in touch.

Eventually I started my own blog to focus on my stories and to have more control over what was placed online.

As the Sheik chapters expanded, more and more of the fans urged me to publish a book. There were times when I did not feel like writing and had no desire to write creatively. However my fans were extremely supportive. The Sheik story first appeared on the website in February 2004 and was published on Amazon almost 10 years to the date the first chapter came online in 2014. To say my fans have been patient is an understatement.

The Sheik is a love story of two people who are from vastly different backgrounds. It shows the great lengths a man will go to find his love when she is taken from him and what a woman may endure when she is separated from her love.  There are several bumps along the way but Mohammed and Katharine are a true romantic and sexy couple.

Assassin's Breach - Kindle ebook by O. Nicholas Cicero

The following factual events inspired me to create a fictional series that incorporates this bizarre mystery.  In December of 2010, a lottery ticket purchased in Iowa matched all of the numbers drawn.  The jackpot prize was $16.5 million dollars.  The deadline to claim the prize was one year.  Eleven months later, the prize was still outstanding.  Two days before it expired, a lawyer from New York appeared at Iowa lottery headquarters with the winning ticket in hand.  The signature on the ticket was for a Trust based in Belize.  Iowa law requires the identity of jackpot winners.  The attorney refused claiming his client could not comply.  When pressed further by Iowa authorities, the attorney dropped the claim for the jackpot prize and returned to NYC.  As a result, Iowa authorities launched an investigation into the matter which is currently ongoing with no results.

Arianna’s victory in a pre-season figure skating competition is overshadowed by the discovery that her father has been funding ice time and coaches’ fees with a loan shark’s dollars. Now her father is out of money, and the loan shark is out of patience. Before the figure skating community can find out more about this lovely skater and where she came from, they are hearing the terrible news that she and her father were killed in a tragic explosion.
