Last Exit for Evermore - A Sci-Fi/Action novel by J. Michael Cook

The greatest civilizations of all time harbored an incredible secret--an incredible power. They used it to build pyramids and erect obelisks. They used it to fashion astonishing monuments that outlasted the most powerful dynasties on earth. Some even used it to fly. Now, thousands of years after those miraculous societies of stars and stone have crumbled to dust--their bastard stepchild, the empire of oil and electricity--has ground to an apocalyptic halt. The time for the great secret to be revealed has arisen once more.

               Jack was thrown into the war like a sack of potatoes--if you remember potatoes. He had no choice. His options were few. Jack hated life under the dome. A couple short hours ago, hacking transportation bots, stealing food bars and providing THCigs for his quad mates was just enough for him to preserve his sanity. But now, all hell had broken loose. Great plumes of fire and ash churned around the under surface of the dome as the herculean city seemed intent on self-destruction.

               After two decades of hunger, strife and subservience, Jack now wielded one of the most powerful armor sets known to man. With a buxom and brilliant new ally at his side, the impossibilities of the stolen armor were slowly coming to light. The filtration and HUD were life savers. The Locomotion Energetics was intoxicating. The directed energy weapon at his fingertips could slice and melt and batter the most sinister of his gangland enemies to a bloody pulp. The incredible power made him giggle with school-girl delight.

But today's enemies were far more sophisticated than yesterday's enemies. The roving patrols and strangulating blockdowns were bad. The autonomous drones were worse. But the relentless, shadow-black Axion warriors—constantly at their heel—simply defied explanation.
There was much more to the technology of the elite than met the eye, but Jack, Jett and Anvil would find out what it was if it was the last thing they ever did.

Indigo Heartfire - a romantic fantasy by Jo Marryat

Robert Kirk returns to London after several years, looking for a new town, a new job, and  a new life. He'd hidden himself away in Cornwall, grieving the death of his wife, but needs to make a new start.  He begins work at a Health Center, working as an Osteopathic Physician, and reluctantly joins in their regular meditation session, very cynical about New Age notions. He encounters a fairy in the meditation: "Annabelle. Like Tinkerbell, only better"  and is convinced he's losing his mind, when she follows him home that evening. His shrink convinces Robert she's a figment of his imagination, made up by his subconscious mind to protect him, and if Robert ignores her, she'll fade away. Except she won't go away, and eventually forces Robert to acknowledge her by threatening to fly around butt-naked, and watch him trying to explain that to the shrink...

Then strange things start to happen when he listens to Annabelle; she's there to help him find a new love, and determined to do a good job. But the girl she thinks is right for Robert he's already fallen out with, big time. But when Robert saves a small girl from drowning, warned by Annabelle, they start to come together cautiously, and he begins to believe that there may be a another chance for him to fall in love again.

Indigo Heartfire is a fae, whimsical love story that deals with grieving with a light but sympathetic touch, showing that when you do believe and never give up hope, surprising things can happen on a journey back to happiness.

Exposed by Jessica Love

You don't think we've met? I sat next to you once at the airport, and you asked me what time it was. I hoped you wanted to strike up a conversation. We sat at tables next to each other at that coffee shop on the corner, where the atmosphere and coffee both have character.

Remember when I caught you staring at me when I came out of the courthouse? Or was it the exquisite old building where I practice law? You were embarrassed, but I didn't mind, not at all. In fact, you made me smile.

Maybe we met at one of the "special clubs" I enjoy in Seattle, or Portland, or Vancouver or San Francisco, Denver or Las Vegas. You know, clubs where clothing is optional and anything goes, with friends or with strangers. I admit I like that, but "no" always means "NO."

I've been told I'm arctic cold, and hot as a black sand beach in the Caribbean; I'm either indifferent, or too passionately engaged. These are labels and don't really matter to me any more. I've been called a slut, a force, a lawyer, a nymphomaniac. You decide which one was the insult if you'd like, I don't really care.

Exposed is about who I am and why I'm that way. I describe a few events in a story you'll think explains everything. It doesn't, but gives an idea of how I grew up, how I discovered sex, what I like about men and what I don't, how close I came to being murdered and how that led to my discovery of who I really am.

Sometimes, when explanations fail, story is all we have. And though my story may be very different from yours, you and I are very much alike in those places where we hide our desires.

Readers have said:
“That was bloody brilliant! I like when I am pleasantly surprised by a book, but I absolutely love when I am blown away by one, and Exposed blew me away. I finished reading it yesterday, but I still can't stop thinking about it.”
“The author had an intricate combination of mystery, romance, angst and some suspense as it follows the leading lady- Jessica Love- through her life and eventually marriage.”
“There is a real story there and I'm hoping more people will give this book a chance as everything she tells you, is building up to a really good story and ending.”
“This was an AMAZING read! I absolutely loved it! It's not one of those romantic romance novels at all. Yes, there's sex, a bit of bdsm.. but for the most part it feels like a memoir. I am very surprised on how much i enjoyed it.”

Aching: Memoirs of an Unrequited Sex Addict - a fictional memoir by Luke Hart

Aching details the filthy experiences and bitter thoughts of a man who is consumed by sex, but who can’t manage to find a partner. He tries to be what he thinks a woman might want. Repeatedly, he fails. Antagonized by lust, he retreats to the sex industry: pornography, phone sex, video chat, strippers, massage parlors, and escorts. He explores the depths of his considerable perversion as he tries to satiate himself.

A narrative exists, but it is woven into the accounts of his dirty life and his diatribes against the human condition. Most of it is chronological, but some of it isn’t. He divides his anecdotes with essays about what life is like for a lonely, dejected man on the brink of functionality.

Some men are born with wiring that doesn’t let them connect with others. These men are weird to everyone else. They get weirder as the world turns them away. A few of them boil so much in their isolation that they become monsters. They devour filth to heal themselves, but the filth seems to make them worse. They are casualties and the natural result of rejection. No one owes them anything, but no one should be surprised they exist.

Aching provides a glimpse into the mind of the kind of man most people don’t want to know exists.

IS IT NOT ENOUGH? - a literary fiction novel by Duncan Anthony

The focus is on Eleanor as the core of the book and the story is told in the traditional third person, scarcely deviating from a point of view close to Eleanor’s, encouraging a measure of identification by the reader.

I decided when writing this book to develop the character of Eleanor more than that of the others to draw the reader in and connect with Eleanor and her perspective of life.
As an added extra I have included in the appendix of the book a selection of the poems of the central fictional character Eleanor.  Eleanor's connection with poetry becomes apparent right from the early chapters of the book.

It's Best to Shoot in the Head - a thriller by Shayne Youngblood

"If you hide in hell, nobody'll come calling."
Those are words to live by for Youngblood, an American who escapes fraud charges in Las Vegas by hiding in a war-torn Balkan town in 1996. The city he's chosen for his shelter, Belgrade, Serbia, is hell—or paradise. Depends who you ask. Crime-ridden, ruled by decaying dictatorship and corruption, the city is perdition for everyone but Roko, a crime kingpin at his prime.
Irony has it that the worst place on Earth has the world’s most beautiful women, and Youngblood marries the most seductive of the fallen angels—Roko’s sister.
His dreams of a safe haven under the protection of his mob boss brother-in-law evaporate after a night of weakness, and Youngblood is soon in over his head. Drawn into a gang war, he ends up shooting the younger brother of a notorious Department of State Security enforcer, the Beast.
Roko fears no man. But Beast is no ordinary man. He's a top assassin whose legendary career ended because his ways were too horrendous even for the hardened State Security brass.
Youngblood's world spirals out of control when Beast threatens to avenge his kid brother by killing Roko's sister, Youngblood's wife—unless they turn over his brother’s shooter. Without Roko's protection, Youngblood is between a rock and a hard place: he must trade his own life to save his loving wife.

Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind by Charles E. Yallowitz

Taking place several months after the battles in Gaia and on the Island of Pallice, Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind continues the adventures of our heroes. Filled with the action, magic, and drama of its predecessors, the sixth installment of this fantasy series will have you reading into the morning hours.

With the Compass Key directing the champions to the north, Luke Callindor is determined to defeat the challenges within his temple. He has never backed down from danger and has always found the strength to battle against harrowing odds. So when he is infected by the Dark Wind that is causing an epidemic, the young warrior and his friends are at a loss on what to do next. He barely has the strength to walk much less fight, which makes Luke an easy target for their enemies. It will take every trick that his friends can think of to keep him alive including the forging of a bond between the young warrior and his oldest ally. Can Luke muster enough strength to expel the living curse from his body or will he be forced to challenge his temple during his weakest hour?
For the entire series, Luke Callindor has depended on his courage and abilities to help him defend others without hesitation. This is the first time he has been reduced to being so helpless that he cannot defend himself. He does try to maintain his bravado and continue being a reckless hero, but the Dark Wind has turned him into a shadow of his former self. With this story, Luke passes through a wide range of emotions that range from empowering determination to childish frustration.

The situation is difficult not only for Luke, but for all of his friends who now realize how much inspiration they take from his bravery. To all of them, it is unnatural to see their friend like this and the other champions, especially Nyx, all come off as lost and confused because he is not driving the action forward with his usual recklessness. Also with the knowledge that at least one of them will die during their final battle, this adventure causes everyone to face the possibility of not only losing a friend, but being one of the survivors.

Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind leads to a lot of evolution of character relationships and a rise of maturity in Luke since he is forced to consider that he might be the weak link among his friends. These changes become even more evident when the truth behind the Dark Wind is revealed.

Coming in April 2015, Legends of Windemere: Sleeper of the Wildwood Fugue !

The Thirteenth Hour - a New Adult Fantasy Novel by Joshua Blum

The Thirteenth Hour's Amazon page:

The Thirteenth Hour book trailer:

Do you remember those 1980s fantasy movies with the big hair and electronic synthesizer soundtracks - movies like The Neverending Story, Ladyhawke, and Labyrinth?  If you can imagine those films in illustrated book form, you have some idea what The Thirteenth Hour is like.

It's essentially a fairy tale aimed at adults, chronicling the adventures of a young man named Logan who grows up in an orphanage with his best friend, Aurora.  When Logan is eighteen, he's drafted into the Imperial Army, where he is ultimately picked for a mysterious mission to find the elixir of eternal life for a petulant, immature, and thoroughly narcissistic ruler.  On the way, he is unexpectedly reunited with Aurora, and both characters have to reconcile adulthood with who they were as children.

One could classify the story as adventure or fantasy, though not a serious JRR Tolkien-style fantasy.  The book doesn't take itself too seriously, though there are plenty of introspective, psychological parts where the characters grapple with balancing that difficult no-man's land of feeling older than an adolescent but too young to classify oneself as an adult.

In some ways, the book grew up with me, since I wrote a very early draft of the book the summer after I finished high school.  I'd drawn from some of my favorite novels and (mostlty 80s) sci-fi and fantasy films as inspiration for the narrative and illustrated a number of black & white and color pictures to add visuals.  Although I'd written the story because it was the sort of thing I'd always wanted to read but never found, I never really intended to publish it.

So life went on - going to many years of school, working to pay the rent, getting married, changing diapers, etc.  But the story wouldn't let me go, and I kept working on it, little by little, over the next sixteen years, reworking and editing the story and characters until I felt like they, too, had grown up.

If you're interested, there are two short stories that serve as bookends to the novel that are available free on Smashwords that may serve to whet your appetite, available here:

Buy and Rent Foreclosures - real estate advice by Joseph Neilson

In 2005 Joe was 61 years old, without a job or pension, with Social Security still five years away. He needed steady monthly income NOW! Cash flow was the priority. He searched for a real opportunity, not a get-other-people-rich charade. Almost by chance, he bought a rental house…easily the best decision he ever made. Seven years and 62 houses later, he makes $22,000 a month and has $3 million in equity. This book is the short version of what he learned and exactly how he did it. Hard to believe? Of course! That’s why in Chapter 20 he offers a full disclosure 13-column spreadsheet down to the dollar--the first real estate book to do that! This may be the opportunity you’ve been searching for.

The Triumph - adventure by Frank Scozzari

An American and his Tanzania aide thwart the plans of elephant poachers.

The Pushcart Prize nominated short fiction featured in Santa Barbara's preeminent literary theater, 'Speaking of Stories.'

The Hobbyist's Guide to Dating - a non-fiction comedy by Sharon Mason

A true, hilarious and also moving account of the author's dating escapades, both online and off, through blind dates and speed dates and dates so bad it seemed like they'd never end.  

Her ‘clock’ may have given up ticking years ago, but forty-something singleton, Sharon Mason defies logic, common sense and feelings that she should have become same-sex oriented years ago, by continuing and chronicling her search for Mr Right, despite set-backs, diminishing possibilities and an increasing waistline. The author also gives her own take on ‘The Rules’ and advice for struggling singletons everywhere, answering the tough questions like ‘How long should I leave it before texting him again?’ and ‘Just how wrong is it for a man to bring his teddy bear on a romantic weekend away?’

The author puts her wit to work, giving a play-by-play of the dating game, and also gives advice on how to deal with online pests...  “How can I make you moan in bed?” ...“Tell me you haven’t put the bins out!”   She airs her frustrations as she purchases expensive lingerie to wear for for her new beau, only to find herself partnerless days later.

Proving that the quest for love is fraught with danger, disappointment, perversion and overly-long checklists, and that happily-ever-after is not easily achievable.

Readers' reviews:

"A beautifully frank exploration of the trials and tribulations of dating. I defy you not to spit tea all over your Kindle as you giggle your way through this little gem"

"A rollercoaster of emotions."

Micah Seven Five - a crime thriller by Howard Robinson

What would you do if you discovered a man’s body in a black plastic bag?

The excesses of London’s banking world provide the backdrop for crime novel Micah Seven Five, which is set just after the Lloyd’s insurance crash in the late 1990s.

The book centres on an unidentified body, which is found dumped outside a charity shop. The find takes Det Insp Jack Munday and his colleagues on a trail that leads them into the world of London’s highly paid bankers, where drugs, sex, risk-taking and flamboyant living come easily.

But it also leads him back over 20 years to a group of now powerful and respected individuals who, when they were a close-knit group of friends at university, led a hedonistic lifestyle which could now prove ruinous for any or all of them.

Author Howard Robinson, who admits to closely observing fellow passengers on the London Underground, as he creates his characters says: “I try to write books that I would want to read; a story that has ordinary characters with whom any of us can identify, but are brought together through an extraordinary situation.

“What interested me was the impact of an event like the Lloyd’s crash had on somebody’s life. I had read about the disparity between those who lost everything and those who didn’t, and I built the story around a guy who loses everything he has as a result.”

Micah Seven Five is published by independent publishers Inspired Quill.

A Family Affair - contemporary romance by Mary Campisi

Several years ago, I read an article about a man who'd kept a secret family for years without anyone's knowledge. I was fascinated that someone could and would actually do this. That one small article lived in my subconscious for years, emerging occasionally as I considered how a person might achieve this, the effects on the primary family as well as the other family, the pain, the grief, the anger, the emotional, financial and psychological entanglements between the two, and the ultimate question; which was the real family? I became so engrossed with the emotion of the situation that I knew I had to create my own characters and my own story and so emerged, A Family Affair. This book was intended as a single book, certainly not the beginning of a series. But readers fell in love with the characters and the town of Magdalena, NY and wanted more. Thus, the Truth in Lies series was born. These are stories of heartache, betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption all wrapped up in the lives of the people we love to love, and even a few we love to hate.

The Silvering of Loran - a fantasy coming of age for adults and teens by G.B. Wren

The inspiration for this story came from a curious childhood experience. It was a lazy afternoon and I had just come indoors from the humid heat that lingered every summer. I crossed into my bedroom, and for some reason I can't remember, I stopped at the mirror above my dresser, probably to get something from the drawers below. I started to stare at my eyes reflected in the mirror and drifted, becoming entangled in my imagination. The world around me faded away. For a moment, a tiny moment, I felt connected to something beyond myself.

I've taken that long ago memory a step further and used it to weave a fantasy world. A world where the mirror, for some, has a greater value than can be imagined.

About The Silvering of Loran:

Magic alone won't set everything right, but it's a good start.

When Loran Avileen receives a gift that reveals magic is real, she discovers her father, the sovereign of the Avileen Empire, has banished any knowledge of it. But his edicts are in question since an evil started manipulating the future of her bloodline.

To defeat a powerful adversary Loran must change her father's destiny, while shaping her own. She will need the knowledge of magic held by a man who doesn't seem to age to save her family from an ageless evil. She will have just one chance to forge the destiny she craves, before evil destroys her family, and her future.

Shari's Shot - A cozy mystery by James Ross

KDP Select free dates - March 18-19, April 6-7, April 23. All in 2015.

The recurring characters at Prairie Winds Golf Course keep delivering interesting plots. Readers have been quick to identify with the eclectic bunch which represent a cross section of American life. Middle class America mixes with those that are new to US soil in all of my character-based novels.

It's been fun to create the regulars. Two brothers, J Dub and Curt run the pro shop. Julie, the assistant, is their "right-hand man" and very much a fixture. Captain Jer, a retired commercial airline pilot, is the clubhouse drunk. Fred and Pork Chop are portly behemoths. Paul is the retired military officer that is a perfectionist. Elia is a transplanted barber from Beirut. Paco owns his own lawn care business. He hails from south of the border. YouWho is a businessman from Japan whose real name is Yuuto but that was too difficult for the guys to pronounce. Scottie P is the tallest and best looking guy in the group. He just happens to be the live-in lover of Father Blair, the local Catholic priest. Doc, an aged veterinarian, babysits Captain Jer. Their sidekick is an old vaudeville performer named Lemuel Trot. The clubhouse wouldn't be complete without BowTye. He's the black clubhouse attendant that at one time was the king of the rock-a-billy blues.

Join the guys. They all have one thing in common. Golf. Each story introduces 20 or so new characters, some of which become fixtures.

New readers will find that an interesting new writing style has grown popular with my fans. Alternative means of communication such as texts and e-mails are used to advance the story. It has been a fun way for me tell the story as well. Shari's Shot delivers many clues in this manner. See if you can figure out the ending!
