The LOCAL RAG by Rod Raglin (Rod Raglin)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by RodRaglin (author): Here's what the reviews are saying so far...

"A very well written media/poltical thriller book. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns and a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great political thriller movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars."

"...an engrossing and exciting story that moves quickly. The narrative comes alive because the characters are three dimensional. This is a novel well worth reading. Highly recommended."

"Interesting plot, fast-moving story, well-developed characters. Not only well presented but also very realistic. A whole range of characters, with all their good and bad sides. Many twists and turns, not always with a happy ending. Rod Raglin is definitely good at writing and gripping the readers' attention from the very first page. He managed to put so many levels in this book - corruption, drugs, murder, threats, politics. Yet, there is also place for love and friendship. He not only presents his story, he challenges his readers to get actively involved, to start asking questions and reconsidering their own life decisions."

I'm the author and publisher hoping to connect with new readers.

Description: Do you believe everything you read in the newspapers?

Jim Mitchell doesn't.

He's a journalist and the publisher and editor of a community newspaper, The Sentinel.

He gave up a career with big media because he couldn't justify their choice of what to cover, couldn't tolerate the way they edited his stories and would not be implicit in misleading the public to benefit some hidden corporate agenda.

When he bought The Sentinel he thought all that would end. Being owner of "the local rag" he could select the stories, edit the copy and make sure the interests of the community were served.

He would print the truth - no slant, no bias, no spin, and he'd make a living doing it.

He was wrong.

Right from the beginning Jim's brand of reportage rankles some powerful people, people who pay his bills. Then there's the new competitor, a multinational media conglomerate that's expanding its generic community newspaper format into The Sentinel's market area.

Soon it's a struggle for The Sentinel to make a profit and for Jim to keep true to his uncompromising ethic.

When his best friend, Anthony Bravaro decides to run for mayor Jim's hopeful he'll be an honest politician.

Hope turns to dismay as Jim watches the quest for power turn a good man bad. Tony's campaign tests Jim's professional objectivity and personal integrity.

When Jim confronts his friend with damaging information that could end his run for public office he finds out how far Tony's prepared to go to win the mayor's seat - farther than he could ever have imagined.

All Jim Mitchell wants to do is publish an honest newspaper. Print stories that serve the interest of the community with no slant, no bias, no spin, and make a modest living doing it? So why do people want to kill him?

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kathay (author): I'm giving away Advance Reader Copies of my latest novel, Gun, the first in the Gun Apocalypse Series. Although part of an exciting new series, the book can be read as a stand-alone.

In return, I'd love you to leave a review on Amazon.com and/or LibraryThing to tell everyone what you thought, prior to its release.

This book should suit readers of Stephen King, Nicholas Sansbury, or Sam Sisavath.

Description: Seven customers shot dead in a coffee shop. Thirty shoppers cut down by an assault rifle at the mall. One hundred and eight pupils killed by high-school students on a rampage.

It’s just reached 10:00 a.m. on a beautiful spring day.

When a neurological virus triggers an epidemic of gun violence, a modern US city fractures into chaos. Annie’s husband shoots at commuters while his son is buckled in a carseat. Frankie and Becca desperately try to evade a deranged shooter at their school; Robert runs headlong into a lopsided gun battle; and Blain…? None of them know Blain’s true story. 

Thrown together—their families dead or missing—these survivors struggle to escape the newly-dangerous city. Hoping to find a place of safety. Somewhere they can bide their time until the violence subsides, the authorities seize control, and good once again triumphs over evil.

They’re in for a long wait.

In the City of Falling Stars by Chris Tusa (University of West Alabama)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by cmtusa (author): Author would like a review in exchange for free e-book.

Description: Dead birds are falling out of the sky and Maurice Delahoussaye suspects the air in New Orleans may be unsafe. The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries claims the birds were poisoned, while meteorologists suggest they were killed by a sudden change in temperature. There's even talk of terrorism, Bird Flu, West Nile Virus, or high levels of mold spores left over from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Gradually, Maurice becomes increasingly fearful that the government is hiding an ominous secret, and when he begins having strange religious premonitions suggesting that his wife is pregnant with Jesus Christ, he becomes convinced that the dead birds are a sign from God. IN THE CITY OF FALLING STARS is a tragicomedy that examines the increasing paranoia following the September 11th attacks, as well as a commentary on the devastating psychological scars that the storm left on the city of New Orleans.

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M. Appel (Permanent Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): 100 copies in PDF format available directly from the author.

Description: On the outside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a pillar of the community: the youngest division chief at his hospital, a model son to his elderly parents, fiercely devoted to his wife and two young daughters. On the inside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a high-functioning sociopath—a man who truly believes himself to stand above the ethical norms of society. As long as life treats him well, Balint has no cause to harm others. When life treats him poorly, he reveals the depths of his cold-blooded depravity.

At a cultural moment when the media bombards us with images of so-called sociopaths who strive for good and criminals redeemed by repentance,The Mask of Sanity offers an antidote to implausible tales of evil gone right. In contrast to fictional predecessors like Dostoyevesky's Raskolnikov and Camus' Mersault, Dr. Balint is a man who already has it all —and will do everything in his power, no matter how immoral, to keep what he has.

Azaroth & Sefalin by Leonard G Mokos (Acme)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by LeonardGMokos (author): https://leonardgmokos.wordpress.com/az...

Description: "Have you done as they say, my boy? Have you dredged up the Coda Uma and let it go to that blackheart Helix?"
Tears burst from Prince Sefalin's eyes. He couldn't speak, just nodded. His lips flushed a deeper purple. His hair was matted to his reddened forehead by blood. From head to toe he wore spatters and blotches of cadaverous slime and melting snowflakes. A vein in his temple throbbed hotly while mucus dripped from his nose.

Azaroth & Sefalin have unwittingly unleashed the ultimate sorcerers manual. It contains secrets of magic and is a devastating weapon. It also hides a brutal secret...

"H.P.Lovecraft, Guardians of the Galaxy and Game of Thrones in one big spin."

"Action packed dark fantasy...murder, mayhem, monsters, magic, armies and swordplay from the jackrabbit start to a spectacularly hideous climax."

Limboland by Leigh Goodison (Sheffield Publications)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by LeighGoodison (author): There are 100 ebooks available in .pdf format(.mobi, or .epub formats are available on request). While I have excellent reviews from Kirkus, Midwest Book Review, and US Review of Books, I am doing this giveaway to hopefully obtain more reviews on Amazon, LibraryThing, and Goodreads.

Description: A ruthlessly ambitious mother
An emotionally damaged psychiatrist
Two sisters whose lives hang in the balance

Psychiatrist Rand Morrissey faces a quandary when consulted on the baffling case of five-year-old Sienna, who is suffering from unexplained fainting spells. Then he discovers a secret kept by her manipulative mother Melanie Cantrell: Sienna has a half-sister, Chelsa, in a coma since a car accident six years earlier. When questioned under hypnosis, Sienna reveals things only Chelsa could have known, leading Rand to suspect that Melanie is machinating Sienna’s problems. But is it Melanie, or something else? Now Rand must overcome his own childhood demons to save the lives of two half-sisters, inextricably tethered between life and death.

Kirkus Reviews: "...the author does an admirable job of humanizing everything else in her rousing novel, making the entire ordeal an eerie possibility in real life...A tightly woven medical thriller fusing justice for abuse victims with the tapped power of the mind."

Midwest Book Review: "Limboland is the kind of medical thriller on par with Robin Cook and the best of genre writers, holding an ability to grip readers with a variety of compelling personalities and emotions, right from the start. Gripping, packed with powerful characters and motives, and steeped in conundrums, Limboland is a highly recommended medical thriller that provides seat-of-your-pants reading that's hard to put down."

US Review of Books: "Goodison has penned an interesting thriller jam-packed with treachery, recriminations, guilt, and guile. All her major characters have locked something away in their pasts that they don’t want to revisit but must if there’s to be any hope of saving the children they love. The author does a good job of delineating her characters and making it clear that while some are basically good and others creepily bad, none are perfect and none are without their share of secrets."

Leigh Goodison is the author of Limboland and The Jigsaw Man, medical thrillers in the St. Augustus Chronicles series; Wild Ones, a coming of age/young adult novel; the nonfiction handbook The Horse Trailer Owner's Manual; and Goodies from the Great White North, a recipe book/cooking memoir. Leigh is originally from British Columbia, Canada. Before she turned to writing and editing full-time, she spent many years working in the medical and legal professions. Leigh's articles, short stories, essays, and poetry have appeared in literary magazines and newspapers across North America.

Religious Rehab A Memoir by Maxwell Todd Preston (Awakened Healing Ltd)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kiwikid (author): I will only be offering a PDF or Word ebook. I am the author and publisher and am hopeful for honest reviews. Be some of the first reviews. This book will not be released until December 1st 2016. Happy reading...

Description: PREFACE

In April 2009, I boarded a flight from Salt Lake City, Utah to New York, my friends awaiting my arrival, Brandon and Kelli passed me a map of downtown New York City. In ‘sharpie’ they had written the words ‘Mormon Rehab’ on the front. We all laughed, knowing full well the depth of the joke. As I write this, more than seven years later, I have had time to reflect on the gravity behind that flippant phrase.
Following that spontaneous trip to New York, I would resign my membership of the Mormon Church, an action that went hand in hand with ending my twelve-year marriage. I would walk away from my former beliefs and, in doing so, gave up my business and job, my financial security, most of my property and money, much of my family, and many people whom I had considered friends. Worst of all, I would lose visitation rights to my four daughters. Looking back, I realize I had forced a reset button on virtually my entire life.
In losing everything I found myself staring at a blank canvas. In July 2009, I drove to New York State from Utah with the few personal belongings I still owned. My friend Kelli rented a small room to me, where I would live, off and on, for the next six months. I spent the first three months writing a memoir – longhand in three empty journals, which quickly became full. I then converted what I had written into a manuscript, and gave it the title Sacred Road.
That writing was the beginning of a cathartic journey from my tortured upbringing in Mormonism. My questions and doubts – built up over years of reading works on religion and history, but stacked away on a metaphorical shelf – came crashing down. The words poured onto the page, and that pouring felt like a detox program, as I purged my childhood inculcation.
While I wrote, I searched for a story that would shed light, not only on the leaving of a religion as indoctrinating as Mormonism, but also on how one would start afresh in an unfamiliar world. I had relinquished the traumatic creed that once imprisoned me, but the task ahead, that of building a new life, was daunting. I found many books about leaving a religion and the tumultuous road that the lead-up to that decision so often takes. But I found little about the recovery from losing a faith, a dogma, and how one finds one’s feet again in the aftermath.
Find my feet I did, although the journey was much tougher, took longer, and brought me much nearer to disaster and death, than I could possibly have imagined. I have encountered a world of beauty and color, contrasting with the black and white morality of Mormonism. I have discovered a depth of individuality and creativity, where Mormonism preaches structure and obedience. I have found friendship and love that are gifts given without expectation: so different from Mormon love which depends on faith and obedience to a white god. I have read great works of literature and seen great works of art which have been banned or restricted by the Mormon Church. I have met kind-hearted souls who do not care about wealth and palatial buildings – those ostentatious displays of Mormon worth. I have seen the ocean and the trees for the first time, not as temporary distractions while awaiting a returning Messiah, but as existing glories of Nature to admire and care for throughout our own lifetimes. I have realized the value of the internal person, while external image is all-important in Mormonism. And I feel I have finally discovered my true self and the things I love and enjoy. I have grown up and started to take responsibility for my actions. I have developed a heart I never knew I had, and discovered courage, not bestowed by a patriarchal god, but found within others and within myself.
Yes, I found my feet, and without that this book would not exist. It is my seven-year project about the greatest two years of my life. Not my two-year mission to Australia, as Mormon culture would have had me believe, but my two-year recovery from the icy stares and cold hearts of the Mormon hierarchy. Their world was the only one I had known in my decades living as a Mormon in Utah. Leaving that world was like quitting a drug on which I had always been dependent.
Religious Rehab is not a title of folly and wit: my story has quite literally been a journey of rehabilitation from the tentacles of an insidious religion.

(It is NOT erotica.)

Description: They told him it was just a parasite...

Jack Fuller’s life took a swan dive after he cheated on his wife two years ago. His most recent spate of “bad luck” is a list of symptoms that don't seem to fit any particular disease profile. Internet searches and medical hip shots are as close as he can get to an actual diagnosis.

Things get worse when a mysterious blood deposit with no apparent source is found in the middle of his bed. Then there is the intense hunger to contend with, the repeating erotic nightmares and the panic attacks.

When the cause of the illness finally manifests, it is wilder than Jack could ever have imagined. The illness has a name.

Its name is Jerry.

Description: Trailer: http://youtu.be/2VfYxsHNlhc

This is the story of a lonely kid who develops a computer game, using what little of quantum physics that he has read, that renders game levels from maps of any format; the result is just a little too realistic. When he tries to combine this "World of Shawn" with a favorite game of his childhood, "World of One," he soon finds Worlds colliding, to the detriment of his friends. Shawn must step up and rectify things, rescue the princess and save the World.

The interaction and constant dialogue between the characters in this story, as well as the humor and action intertwined, have drawn comparison to that in such works as "The Lord of the Rings," "Harry Potter," and "Narnia," so if a reader has an interest in any of those, as well as an interest in computer programming or video games, either in the past or the present, it would be a safe bet that they would enjoy getting to know Shawn and his World!

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): A smashwords.com coupon will be delivered to winners promptly. Follow Starbuck on Facebook, Goodreads or Twitter for updates on giveaways and notices of free stories and promotions. Many thanks.

Description: Named one of only two 5-star finalists for the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards in the humor category, Goliath Gets Up is one of the funniest books you will ever read. Indie Reader describes it as sidesplitting read "in which you find yourself shamelessly and boisterously cheering for the most outrageous band of misfits to ever have a dream." The story of "friends-by circumstance who decide they must do something important in order to change their lives," Goliath is a rollicking underdog tale about a misguided attempt to bring the Academy Awards ceremony to Rochester, NY and to save the city in the process. Not to be missed.

How to Raise a Good Kid by Starbuck O'Dwyer (Green Chair Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): A smashwords coupon for How to Raise a Good Kid will be delivered to all winners promptly. Reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and Library Thing are much appreciated. Thank you.

Description: Named a 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards finalist (parenting) and a 2011 Foreword Reviews Book of the Year finalist (both humor and essay categories), How to Raise a Good Kid is not a conventional "how-to" but rather a collection of 23 humorous and heartfelt stories about the challenges and joys of growing up for both parents and children. By way of background, Good Kid is the first in a series of two books with its sequel, High School Dance, having just been released. The origin of the two books is as follows:

How to Raise a Good Kid and High School Dance are the culmination of a project that began shortly after my wife and I welcomed our son to the world. Like most first-time fathers, I felt a new and profound sense of responsibility and immediately became determined to pass along every lesson I believed was important. So even though my pride and joy was only drooling, pooping and sleeping at this point, and was years away from absorbing his dad’s hard-earned wisdom, I refused to let any of those pesky details get in my way.

First, I made a list of the events of my childhood that taught me the most, the ones that made the biggest impressions, both good and bad. This exercise forced me to revisit many harrowing experiences such as batting zero in little league baseball, my chronic addiction to a blanket, my disastrously unsuccessful try-out for the role of Winthrop in The Music Man, and the time I mooned the entire sixth grade. I wanted to let my son know whatever hardship he might face; his father had already been there, learned something of value and survived. I also wanted to let him know about all the fun and joy I experienced as a child and the love my parents showed me.

After compiling my list, however, I realized it wasn’t going to be enough. What if, God forbid, I wasn’t around to tell him the full story behind each enumerated item? I couldn’t bear the thought so I decided to turn the list into a book of stories about my childhood. Over time, the project evolved into two books: one about my grade school years, How to Raise a Good Kid, and one about my junior and senior high school years, High School Dance.

Few times in life are more memorable than our school years. Humiliation, heartbreak and failure are abundant, and that’s on a good day. No matter who you are, coming of age is exciting, confusing and sometimes downright dangerous, and I’ve tried to capture both the agony and the ecstasy. My wife and I were fortunate enough to add a daughter to our family in the intervening years and my great hope is that she and her brother will someday read these stories, learn a few lessons, come to know their father even better, and above all, remember how much I love them.

“That was a pretty cool description of me and what and who I am. On a 1-10 scale I'd give it 9.2”

“Thank you so very much, Awen. I agree my soul is talking to me and telling me what it needs. I'll need to be a lot more successful in life (financially) as I completely love nature. In my mind I know exactly what I want and where to live and also what I need from life. I know one day I will succeed.”

“Your interpretation is very accurate. I was 12 when I first heard this song; the year it was released in 1991.”

“Nice work Awen! How do you work this out? A great gift!”

Soul Music offers insightful personality reports giving you endless hours of fun. Learn who you are and why you do what you do

Why Leadership Sucks™ Volume 2: The Pain, Pitfalls and Challenges of Servant Leadership Fundamenta by Miles Anthony Smith (Kompelling Publishing)

This is an audiobook.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by MilesAnthonySmith (author): Readers are asked to leave their objective review for Why Leadership Sucks Volume 2 on Audible.com.

Description: In this day and age, we talk about leadership and more and more books are available on the subject than ever before. The single keyword 'leadership' offers up more than 640 million search results on Google alone, and via the internet we can access leadership courses (like mine on Udemy.com) and online information more quickly and easily than ever before. We have more management consultants than ever before in the history of the world. Yet we have a severe lack of leadership in most areas of government, business, and even non-profit organizations.

So why is that? It is a lack of follow-through... plain and simple. We all gorge ourselves on leadership conferences, webinars, books, and so on, but how much do we actually put into practice?

This book is about putting what we learn into practice, and that is a hallmark of leadership fundamentals. Whenever we feel frustrated or life seems to be spinning out of control, we need to get back to the fundamentals; to the basics of why we're living. What is your purpose and mission? Is it based on the fundamentals of living a selfless life as a service-minded person?

"Life and people aren't out to get you, but your approach to life and approach to people are."

At times when our lives feel out of control, we need to get back to the basics of life and leadership. We can get so distracted by things in life that we forget about what is seminally true. It is always about the fundamentals: fundamentals in work, life, sports, faith, and relationships. We can easily allow ourselves to become distracted by all kinds of things that really don't matter, and most of the time a return to the fundamentals brings us back into balance and promotes peace in our lives.

That's what this book is about. If you feel that things are out of control, either in your own leadership or in that of others around you, this book is for you. If you just want to learn more about servant leadership fundamentals, this book is also for you. It is my hope and belief that this book will help you get back to the fundamentals of life and leadership. These are the things that really matter in life, and life should not be focused on the things that distract us from the purpose of living a selfless life.

The book is divided into four parts:
Part 1: To serve or not to serve. The choice is indeed a tough one.
Part 2: Leggo my ego. Addresses the challenge of needing an ego to lead but having that harnessed so it is not unwieldy.
Part 3: The danger of persona non grata. You don't want to be the unwelcome person, do you?
Part 4: Fierce competition steamrolls ahead. Organization competition is heating up and show no signs of slowing. Will you ride the wave or be pulled under by the currents?

“Your father called me. He invited me for Christmas. I have a ticket for the same flight as you. Tonight.”
With those words, Big Mike sucked the oxygen out of the room. Minnie intended her father would meet her new man, Big Mike… eventually. Minnie wanted to give Daddy time to get used to the idea that his 'little girl' is embroiled in a serious relationship. A few decades, perhaps. Because Daddy’s not your run-of-the-mill protective father - he's a criminal. But now Minnie is heading home for the holidays with Big Mike in tow.
Big Mike is no delicate violet. He’s quiet and lethal, an ex-Special Forces soldier whose day job involves ‘keeping the Free World safe’. But Big Mike doesn’t want to spoil Minnie’s Christmas and promises not to hurt anyone… His resolve will be tested by Minnie’s father, her psycho brother and three outlaw lieutenants who want his woman.
This novella is packed with everything needed for a very merry Christmas: love, family, laughter and psychos.

Description: The year is 1888. Detective Sergeant John Billings has been sent to a remote house in the Yorkshire Moors to investigate the suspicious death of Roger Thornton, a young man who seemed to have everything to live for. He gets a frosty reception from the lady of the house and her rag-tag collection of domestic staff who try to put him off the scent, but as Billings delves deeper into their lives, he uncovers hidden passions, bitter rivalries and a truth so dark and sinister, it will shock you to the core.

Fusing Gothic romanticism and fin-de-siecle melodrama, 'Death Takes A Lover' is a chilling entry into a world which some may not want to enter, but if you do, don't say you haven't been warned...

The Ornamental Hermit by Olivier Bosman (Rocket Man Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Obosman (author): I am offering 50 copies of the second book in the D.S.Billings Victorian Mysteries.

The winners will receive a Smashwords coupon with which they can download the eBook for free in any format they require.

Description: The year is 1890. Detective Sergeant John Billings is a Quaker. He sees God in everyone and takes other people's suffering to heart. He is an honest and hard working man who has risen swiftly through the ranks to become one of Scotland Yard's youngest detectives. But in his private life he struggles with the demons of loneliness, morphine addiction and homosexuality.

While Scotland Yard is in the midst of foiling a Russian counterfeiting operation, Billings is asked to investigate the cold blooded murder of Lord Palmer. The main suspect is a rough looking vagrant called Brendan Lochrane who was employed by Lord Palmer to live as an 'ornamental hermit' in a grotto in his estate. When Billings visits Lochrane in his holding cell, he is moved by the look in the man's eyes. This is not the 'Wild Man' the press have made him out to be. Lochrane is mute, docile and unresponsive. A gut feeling leads Billings to suspect that the man is being framed. But who is framing him? And why?

Billings travels the length and breadth of Britain investigating the case. As he pieces together the fragments of Lochrane's extraordinary life, he slowly finds himself becoming embroiled in a web of corruption and deceit which goes right to the heart of Scotland Yard.

'The Ornamental Hermit' is a thrilling mystery which leads the reader on a colourful journey into Victorian England. This is the 2nd book in the D.S.Billings Victorian Mysteries series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand alone story.

Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou by Steven Burgauer (Battleground Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Steven_Burgauer (author): Win one of 50 e-copies of this brand new WW2 thriller in exchange for a posted review.

Description: Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou intertwines historic persons, actual events and distant locales of World War II with a fast-moving fictional Nazi plot to disrupt the manufacture of Higgins boats, the remarkable landing craft that won the war for the Allies. Spanning the globe from amphibious landings at Guadalcanal, to the Navajo code talker school, to the exotic environs of New Orleans, to the secret world of Bletchley Park, this tautly written thriller, covering two weeks during the summer of 1942, combines a fully imagined cast of characters with the historically important figures of Andrew Higgins, members of American and British Intelligence, Navajo code talker Chester Nez, Commander Ian Fleming of MI6, along with a Polish intelligence officer, and “Silver Dollar Sam” Carolla, crime boss of New Orleans.

An old German is found dead in a New Orleans whorehouse. Sewn into the lining of the dead man’s vest is a notebook filled with hand-drawn maps and notes about the comings and goings at military installations. German conspirators fret that their local contact (the dead German) is overdue. Mafia crime boss Nico Carolla, is soon drawn into the disposition of the corpse.

We move to the Pacific and meet the grandson of the dead German, PFC Brock, a U.S. Marine being trained for the landings at Guadalcanal. Then we meet Andrew Jackson Higgins at the helm of the single most important landing craft ever built, the Higgins Boat, the steel-ramped landing craft that brought American troops to Pacific islands and to Normandy. In his colorful manner, Higgins is instructing a class of Coast Guard newbies on how to properly drive and operate his nearly indestructible boat. Higgins faces shortages of materials, manpower, and factory space. The Mafia boss controls much of the labor supply. Accommodations must be made to placate the mob family, who also have Old World connections in critical to the upcoming North African landings.

The Waffen-SS officers charged with sabotaging the Higgins Boat plant arrive, only to learn of the loss of the intelligence gathered by the dead German. Now enter the code breakers at Bletchley Park who intercept the commando team’s messages, including one female mathematician through whose eyes we see inside Bletchley Park.

America is almost entirely dependent on Britain’s MI6 for intelligence gathering. We meet Martina Amerada, a Cuban woman with a high-level banking responsibility, including ties to British intelligence, and who is Nico Carolla’s mistress. Martina moves money for the crime family and provides diplomatic cover between the Palermo branch of the family and the planners of Operation Torch. We are also introduced to the Navajo code-talker program essential to securing Marine Corps messages in the Pacific theater.

The German commando team searches for the lost notebook by visiting the whorehouses Brock has been known to frequent, which leads to a murder and later retaliation by the Mafia against the German conspirators. Half the German commando team perishes. US marshals are drawn into the story as bodies are discovered in the nearby bayous. The Mafia is suspected. When the marshals confront Carolla, the marshals are put on the trail of the commandos which leads to the death of the marshals.

Bletchley Park is busy trying to crack the code imbedded in the Himmler messages, We move back to the Pacific where grandson Brock is involved in the bloody landings ahead of Guadalcanal. Brock is wounded and nearly dies as the remaining commando attempts to demolish the largest Higgins Boat manufacturing facility in New Orleans. With the help of British intelligence, Nico Carolla prevents the plant from being destroyed and thus becomes the hero of the story.

Operation Torch gets underway and the Higgins boats prove their indispensability to the war effort. PFC Brock recovers from his wounds, and Martina takes possession of all intelligence related to the German commandos so the threat never becomes public knowledge.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Alan_Spade (author): I am Alan Spade, the author. Reviews on Amazon.com and Goodreads would be greatly appreciated. Review copies available on epub and mobi format. Enjoy!

Description: Flames were everywhere. Taller than a krongos, swift and dominant, they were dancing a bloody dance of chaos and madness. Just one step forward, and they would seize him in their deadly embrace, scorching his body and feasting upon his soul. Pelmen turned. The tongues of fire behind him drew back, outlining the path to salvation.
A new installment in the prehistoric world of Ardalia
Along the Great Rift, in the heart of the volcano Ixal, Valshhyk the Immolated is stirring. The creatures corrupted by his putrid fumes are growing in number daily. Within the fiery walls of Sinista, the amberrock swords, axes and lances of an army of outcasts gleam, waiting. The day is drawing near when the ties binding the dark god will collapse. Then, the nylevs will surge forward from the depths of the abyss.

Pelmen, Xuven, Teleg, Elisan-Finella and Lominan, the Messengers of Destiny, have an urgent mission. However, dissent soon rears its ugly head and they go their separate ways. Who among the Children of Aoles or Malia will succeed in warning the world of the danger it faces? When the time comes to confront the servants of the Sacred Fire, will the Breath of Aoles and the power of the Turquoise Water be enough to defeat them?
What readers are saying:
"I really enjoyed the two different perspectives and the two different main struggles that each group has to overcome. It was refreshing and full of a lot of good action and story development. The internal struggles were compounded with the insurmountable politics and allied conflict. Not only do they have to warn everyone but they have to revisit their past struggles and problems. They have to break through political and strategic barriers." —TM Borgwardt
"I really liked this book, it is a strong relevant second in the series. You get a look at the struggles of working together and overcoming diversity to secure a common goal." —CRB Amazon
"This story picks up where the first book "The Breath of Aoles" left off.
The writer continues to intrigue and leaves wanting more with this magic, fantasy and adventure series. I look forward to the 3rd book!" —Gene

The Night of the Eleventh Sun by Steven Burgauer (Amazon KDP)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Steven_Burgauer (author): 30 free Kindle copies of my newest SF book.

Description: This book — The Night of the Eleventh Sun — is what I would call speculative science fiction. I wondered to myself what actually happened some 40,000 years ago when the last of the Neanderthals met the first humans as early man spread west into Iberia. Thus was born this very well researched, but entirely fictional book. This book is Underground Reviews certified and I am a Good Reads Author.

The fossil record is unclear.
Did Neanderthal speak?
Did he laugh, have music, feel love?
Did he interact with Homo sapiens or get killed by him in mortal combat or get pushed to extinction on less marginal lands?
This book answers some of those questions in a carefully researched fictional setting.
Now meet Strong Arms, leader of the clan.

Predator species have spite hardwired into their behavior.
Killing the competition before it grows up is always a good genetic strategy for any meat-eater.
Now, take one that’s smart, adaptive, and a consummate tool-user, and you have the makings for a conflict of monumental proportions.
It’s man versus Neanderthal in the mountains of Iberia. Only one will survive.
You may be surprised by which.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by leonardflama (author): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: It is not very often that a chance encounter could seal a person's friendship or association for many years or for the rest of his life. Meeting two little girls, aged five and seven, and their grandmother, in such desolate circumstances in the Valle de los Ingenios (Cuba) in 2006 sealed that relationship for the author. Since it was his first encounter with the people of the Valle, he had to learn more and, as a result of that knowledge, he was prompted to express the emotions of his encounter, as he imagined them to be, in this story harnessing the extra-sensory perception of two young girls in 'THE VALLEY OF THE INNOCENTS'. Although the story at the heart of this book is fictitious, the characters are almost entirely based on real people whom the author got to know or observe in the course of his visits to the Valle, and the narrative is placed in the context of Cuban current affairs existing at the time.

Description: June 1813, as the Peninsular war edges towards its climactic battle at Vitoria, a well bred, newly commissioned and hopelessly incompetent officer arrives to take charge of a seasoned troop of British cavalry. The troop's eloquent but shifty corporal takes the officer under his wing, and so begins a journey through the campaign with many laugh out loud moments, as the less than upright members of the troop determine to turn the war against the French to their pecuniary advantage. It's almost as if Jeeves and Wooster find themselves fighting Napoleon. Book 1 of an often funny and very readable period trilogy.

Offered by Steven_Burgauer (author): Be the first to claim one of 25 free e-copies of this fine book, of which Publishers Daily Reviews states -- Five-plus unequivocal stars to The Road to War. It’s an extraordinary read that everyone should enjoy.

Description: Publishers Daily Reviews says of this book — Five-plus unequivocal stars to The Road to War. It’s an extraordinary read that everyone should enjoy.
==============================================
It’s a little after 8 a.m., June 13, 1944, and Lt. William C. Frodsham, Jr. is in the fight of his life.
Eight days earlier, he and his platoon had waded ashore on Dog Green Beach along with thousands of other determined G.I.s. during the famous D-Day invasion. Then, they had slogged 12 miles into the Normandy countryside under withering enemy fire.
Now, Frodsham and his men are pinned down and outnumbered among the hedgerows, waging a brave and bloody battle against equally determined German forces.
It’s an action-packed start to this excellent first-person narrative about one man’s harrowing — and sometimes humorous — experiences in World War II.
Well-told in an almost cinematic style, this tale draws the reader immediately back to that unforgettable time when America — and its young men and women — were thrown into a global conflict whose outcome was perilously uncertain.
In large part, however, the book, which is largely based on Frodsham’s personal diary, is full of anecdotes and fascinating stories that will surely appeal to anyone who has spent time in the military. Indeed, much of it rivals Neil Simon’s Biloxi Blues in its ability to enthrall the reader.
Flash back to December 7, 1941. Frodsham has kissed his girl goodbye, along with his family, and shipped off to Fort Dix, NJ — the first of several Army posts where he is taught to be a soldier.
What follows is a highly entertaining account of what it was like to be in the U.S. Army back in the early days of the war. Frodsham excels in every posting, and is soon on his way to OCS — Officer Candidate School.
But his journey is not without its share of off-base adventures — like the 24-hour AWOL Christmas trip to a friend’s home, and the brief but victorious alley confrontation in which he and a ranking middleweight sergeant dispatch four paratroopers intent on getting them kicked out of OCS.
Time passes and Frodsham seeks — and wins — the hand of his beloved Connie, and they are married in a full-blown regimental ceremony on May 22, 1943 at Fort Leonard Wood in rural Missouri.
Their precious time together is brief, however, as he ships out to England in October aboard the newly refitted SS Mauritania. The five-day voyage is uneventful — except for two exciting days wallowing through 50-foot ocean swells — and he lands at Liverpool along with thousands of his shipmates.
Endless days of drills and preparation for the Normandy invasion are interspersed with fascinating stories of Frodsham’s fraternization with the Brits — and inspiring insights into how this remarkable island nation not only survived the Blitzkriegs, but found humor and hard-won conviviality in its neighborhood pubs each night.
Then, D-day arrives, and it finds Frodsham floating with his men just off the Normandy coast. It’s a hellish scene that confronts them as they wade ashore. Body parts litter the beach, but Frodsham and his platoon forge ahead, intent on their mission to make it to the village of Isigny and hold it until relieved.
In trying to get there, however, murderous crossfire by German machine guns costs the soldiers dearly in terms of dead and injured. By the time they finally cross one field bordered by six-foot hedgerows, Frodsham wonders to himself:
“If the enemy (is) going to surrender France only one hundred feet at a time, this (is) going to make for a very long war.”
Finally, they come upon a German force larger than their own, and, after a furious firefight, Frodsham orders his men to lay down their arms. They become prisoners of war, and the remaining pages detail the hardships, pain, and debilitating slow starvation inflicted upon the troops.
Still, Frodsham and his fellow detainees find opportunity for gaiety even in a Gulag. A theatre group sprouts up, and even a camp newspaper, The Oflag 64 Item. Still, starvation is a constant companion. Frodsham, like most of his fellow POWs, loses more than 60 pounds while in captivity.
I won’t reveal the book’s surprising and satisfying ending. Suffice to say, celebration of the War’s final actions is sweet for Frodsham — who at many times during a forced wintertime march from Poland by his captors, fleeing the advance of Russian liberators, lay huddled against cattle for simple warmth during the long, frozen nights.
This memoir is a saga of celebration and hardship, heroism and tragedy, set against the sweeping backdrop of the twentieth century’s most important worldwide conflict.
Yet it carries with it a tone and craftsmanship at once imminently readable and startlingly personal. The author has written a masterpiece of first-person narrative gleaned purely from Frodsham’s meticulous diary and equally exhaustive research that often puts the reader squarely in the middle of war-torn France and into the very hearts and souls of the valiant men and women who secured the peace we now enjoy.
Five-plus unequivocal stars to The Road to War. It’s an extraordinary read that everyone should enjoy.

Description: Only the lost art of evoking magic through music can prevent Cathay from descending into chaos.

With an unrivaled voice, Kaiya dreams of a time when a song liberated enslaved humans from their orc masters. Maybe then, the imperial court would see the awkward, gangly princess as more than a singing fool.

When members of the emperor’s elite spy clan uncover a brewing rebellion, the court hopes to appease the ringleader by offering Kaiya as a bride.

Obediently wedding the depraved rebel leader means giving up her music. Confronting him with the growing power of her voice could kill her.

Songs of Insurrection is a re-release of Book 1 of the Daughter of the Dragon Throne series, The Dragon Scale Lute.

A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander (Bethany House Publisheres)

Offered by bethanyhouse (publisher): Win one of ten ARCs for A Note Yet Unsung!

Description: A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the maestro at the newly formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are "far too fragile and frail" for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah's hopes are swiftly dashed because the conductor—determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music—bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah's new employer, agrees with him.

Nationally acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville's new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse—and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head—he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city's new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music—his father, who is dying. As Tate's ailment worsens, he believes Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman's trust when you've robbed her of her dream?

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by PossPubCo (publisher): We're thrilled to be the publisher for this debut novel by talented writer Cathy Cruise. We hope that contest winners will enjoy the book as much as we do!

Description: Katie Jacobs has dreaded weddings since she was a kid, when she was dragged to far too many ill-fated ceremonies by her mother, a wedding planner. Now her sister’s getting married at their childhood home, and after Katie’s job and relationship come to a sudden halt, she heads to Florida for wedding prep, including fixing up the now run-down house.

As if exhausting work, feuding parents, a neurotic dog, and a former love interest aren’t enough to handle, Katie’s asked by her mother to write a wedding blog, covering the “hundred weddings” they’ve planned in the past. Reliving those memorable—and painful—moments turns out to be oddly therapeutic. But it will take much more than this to renew her faith in marriage and love.

Expired Listings by D.M. Barr (Punctuated Publishing)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by dmbarr (author): Enjoy the audiobook version of Expired Listings, written by D.M. Barr and narrated by Hollie Jackson. Ten coupon codes are being offered, which will allow you to download the book from Audible free of charge. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Description: What if people were dying around you and you weren't absolutely sure you weren't their murderer? Someone is 'deactivating' the Realtors in Rock Canyon and almost no one seems to care. Not the surviving brokers, who consider the serial killings a competitive boon. Not the town's residents, who see the murders as a public service. In fact, the only person who's even somewhat alarmed is Dana Black, a kinky, sharp-witted yet emotionally skittish Realtor who has no alibi for the crimes because during each, she believes she was using her empty listings for games like Bondage Bingo with her sadistic lover, Dare. And yet, mysteriously, all clues are pointing her way.

Along with clearing her name and avoiding certain death at the hands of the 'Realtor Retaliator,' Dana has an even bigger problem: she's inadvertently become a person of interest in more ways than one to Aidan Cummings, the sexy albeit vanilla detective investigating the case. While his attentions are tempting, Dana is torn—does she continue her ironically 'safe' but sterile BDSM relationship with Dare, or risk real intimacy with Aidan?

Kink, Suspense and Satire—Expired Listings masterfully combines all three while exploring the universal need for validation and the toxic nature of revenge.

Admiring of the great author, she nevertheless feels marginalized and undervalued in her role.

And Poe Said by Rene Bard (CreateSpace)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by ReneEldaBard (author): 3 copies available from the author Rene Elda Bard.

Description: Ever since news of Edgar Allan Poe’s mysterious death in Baltimore was published in October of 1849, the global community of Poe fans—today, millions strong and growing—has wanted to know what really happened to him. AND POE SAID will give them exactly what they’ve been looking for: answers.

But, dear reader, beware! Some truths are better left buried in the seeming obscurity of the past, for as Poe himself once wrote, “…not in knowledge is happiness, but in the acquisition of knowledge!” And so shall it be: readers of AND POE SAID will revel in the acquisition of long-sought-after knowledge, but what they acquire will unsettle and perhaps even terrify them.

AND POE SAID begins in Baltimore as a sick and drunken Poe steps off the gangplank of an overnight steamer. Returning home from Richmond after a disastrous publicity tour, he is caught up in the partisan fury of a Baltimore election. Readers will encounter a gritty and modern Poe. They will also discover his long lost tale—“Mr. Dormir’s Last Request”—a shocking account of betrayal and abandonment. The town of Baltimore as a character will seem strangely familiar in this meticulously researched and densely-drawn narrative. Most surprising of all, readers will find themselves as unwitting characters within this genre-bending story—full of mystery, suspense, and psychological horror.

Jack and Norman by Jerome Loving (Thomas Dunne Books)

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by stmartins (publisher): St. Martin's Press is giving away 3 copies of JACK AND NORMAN!!

Description: This is the story of an author and his apprentice. It is the story of literary influence and tragedy. It is also the story of incarceration in America.
Norman Mailer was writing The Executioner’s Song, his novel about condemned killer Gary Gilmore, when he struck up a correspondence with Jack Henry Abbott, Federal Prisoner 87098-132. Over time, Abbott convinced the famous author that he was a talented writer who deserved another chance at freedom. With letters of support from Mailer and other literary elites of the day, Abbott was released on parole in 1981.
With Mailer’s help, Abbott quickly became the literary “it boy” of New York City. But in a shocking turn of events, the day before a rave review of Abbott’s book, In the Belly of the Beast, appeared in The New York Times, Abbott murdered a New York City waiter and fled to Mexico. Eerily, like Gary Gilmore in Mailer’s true-life novel, Abbott killed within six weeks of his release from prison.
Now Jerome Loving explores the history of two of the most infamous books of the past 50 years, a fascinating story that has never before been told.

Description: "a great book for horse and history lovers alike" horsenation.com

"a top recommendation for any American history collection" Midwest Book Review

"entertains as it teaches...well-researched, informative, and interesting!" Readers' Favorite


Some of America's greatest heroes have not gotten the recognition they deserve.The Equine Legacy is a lively tribute to these four-legged unsung heroes, who played essential roles in the exploration, settlement, and economic prosperity of America, while serving on the battlefield and entertaining people across the country.

This stirring story is brought to life with photographs and the writings of iconic Americans like Mark Twain, Ulysses Grant, and Frederick Remington. You'll hear from explorers, pioneers, journalists, soldiers, and others who lived and worked alongside horses, mules, and donkeys. Much more than just beasts of burden, equines were devoted partners and friends to our ancestors, who depended on them heavily, often for their very survival.

You will also learn how an equine illness nearly brought the country to a standstill; how horses saved so many people from dreaded diseases; how equines paid the ultimate price to rebuild a major city; the men and women who devoted their lives to equine welfare; and how these special animals are still serving our country today.

Whether you are a history buff or an animal lover, this book will open your eyes to the incredible equine role in our American journey.

Everyone could use a little encouragement, inspiration, and wisdom sometime. You’ll find plenty of that and more in Wheels of Wisdom: Life Lessons for the Restless Spirit. This book is filled with uplifting messages, wise advice, and thought-provoking questions. It’s also brimming with adventure and fun.

Ten thousand miles and several years in the making, Wheels of Wisdom is rolling out to provide fresh insight into “doing life” in a way you may not have considered before.

While on their cross-country cycling adventures, the Bishops experienced many “aha moments.” Now, fifty-two of these unique life lessons from the road come alive in Wheels of Wisdom: Life Lessons for the Restless Spirit.

Perhaps Dr. John Giannini, the head coach of the La Salle Explorers men’s basketball team, said it best:

Wheels of Wisdom offers the unique combination of being extremely readable and thought-provoking at the same time. Sharing in Tim and Debbie’s adventures leads one to consider how matters of everyday faith, preparation, decision-making, and perspective affect us not only in the moment, but throughout our lives.”

Description: Looking for more out of life?

After three tours totaling over 10,000 miles, Tim and Debbie Bishop have discovered wisdom and truth from the seat of a bicycle. In Wheels of Wisdom, the authors share the life lessons they learned on the open road.

When you're looking for enlightenment, you can find it almost anywhere, be it from watching two herons saunter across a Florida road, pedaling to a dead-end in a Kentucky tobacco field, or observing eagles flying overhead in Montana. In each lesson of this book, you’ll find practical insights, inspiration, and encouragement—along with personal reflection questions that will help you:

- Adopt the right mind-set
- Conquer fear, worry, and inaction
- Overcome obstacles
- Relish life’s journey

Certain principles are universal whether you are bicycling across America or chasing your own lifelong dream.

You may be continuing your education, connecting with new people, looking to change jobs, or simply wondering about your future. Wherever you are in life, Wheels of Wisdom will give you a fresh perspective and new motivation for your own adventure. Not only will you encounter meaningful truth as you travel vicariously to new places and meet new people, you’ll also experience some genuine “God moments” and have some fun on the way.

So, pack up your dreams and passions and come enjoy the ride. It’s time to learn on the open road!

Description: Winner of Readers' Favorite 5 Star Review Medal!

A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a suspense story that is as exciting as a James Rollins novel. Kendall travels between Maryland, the jungles of the Yucatan and the waters of Mexico to decipher and fulfill her husband's wishes. Despite the animosity and heartache her stepson gives her, she valiantly forges ahead to finish what her husband has charged her to do. The characters were outstanding, including the villains. I found them easy to relate to. The plot is interesting and the storyline is fascinating. This is a captivating and engrossing story and I loved every bit of it. Reading this story was a pure pleasure. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good suspense novel with some ancient legends mixed in.- Reviewed By Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite

5 Stars
Dive into A Deep Thing
A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a high concept thriller—think TheDa Vinci Code of the deep—that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. A roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, mystery and intrigue, this page-turner surprises at every turn and offers a stunning ending you'll never suspect. I never heard of cenotes—magical underground caves in the Yucatan Peninsula so it was fascinating to learn about diving in these beautiful sinkholes. This book really packs a punch. It has everything from conspiracy theories to corporate greed and smart writing that doesn't disappoint.

—Marilyn Baron, Author of Stumble Stones: A Novel
