The Nightlife San Antonio (Urban Fantasy Romance) by Travis Luedke (Travis Luedke)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Travis_Luedke (author): As the Author of The Nightlife San Antonio, I am seeking Amazon reviews. All reviewers who post to Amazon.com can have access to any Nightlife Series ebook of their choice for free.

All ebook formats are available via Smashwords gift.

*The Nightlife San Antonio is a standalone novel in the Nightlife Series.

Description: Vampires, Mafia & Mayhem: The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.

EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can't explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.

She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn't know from who. She only knew she wasn't safe.

Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn't long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…

THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO is a non-stop thrill ride through the shadowy borderworld of mafia politics and vampires – and sex.

PRAISE FOR NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO:

"Luedke writes with a raw and honest style that is a breath of fresh air and makes the scenes realistic and powerful. The sexual tension is made even more gripping and intense by the constant 'playing with fire' that accompanies the sex with a vampire."

"Spiked with great one liners, fast paced writing, filth, sex and violence this is paranormal writing at its best."

"Travis Luedke takes so many genres and melds them all together into an exciting thrill ride that you can't escape from. Just when you think things are going to calm down and finally head in one direction, the platform is swept out from under you and you find yourself free-falling into an unknown world where vampires, mafia and sex collide."

Goliath Gets Up 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 code will be delivered to the winners. For funny free stories and updates, please follow Starbuck on Goodreads, Twitter or Facebook. Many thanks for your interest.

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.

Darkwalk by Cassy Campbell

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

Offered by CassyCampbell (author): I'm giving away 100 copies of this book to hopefully garner some new reviews before the sequel, Dreamclock, releases in October. It's a dystopian futuristic scifi with just a hint of romance, and involves genetic engineering, plenty of action, and mutant attack animals.

Description: Lace is one of NIA-Teliad’s best agents. But when her partner Parker inexplicably turns against her, she only escapes with the help of a hauntingly familiar stranger named Rogue—a stranger who apparently knows more about her own past than she does. It isn’t until Rogue tells her the details of her past that she’s made herself forget that she realizes NIA-Teliad doesn’t want her for what she did, but what she is.

When Rogue finds out what NIA-Teliad is really involved in, things take an even more sinister turn. Fossuel was used up decades ago, and the American Republic has been struggling to stay alive with the few power sources that are left. But Parker’s found the ultimate new power source. All it will cost is human lives.

Now Lace and Rogue have to stop him before more people die to supply fuel to those in power. They’ll have to go against her partner, her agency, and the shadow agency behind it all, the one she forgot existed: Darkwalk.

Lucky for her, she’s a Darkling.

Description: Hi, my name is Erica, and I'm a 37 year-old mother-of-two, accountant, and home-cook from Anaheim, California.

At the age of 32, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. It was a life-changer. It's beyond embarrassing to frequently make trips to the bathroom throughout the day. Everything I ate would go right through me and on top of the embarrassment I was enduring, it was also extremely painful. I worked my way through several different medications and steroids, which all ended up to be more harmful to me than helpful. My treatment triggered my body to develop rheumatoid arthritis and I was more flared up than ever.

I was basically immobilized, but ironically, always had to get up to go to the bathroom.

As far as I was concerned, I wanted to die! I know that's a little extreme, but my mindset as the time was my willing to do anything to get the pain to stop. The way I saw it - life simply wasn't worth living if it meant going through all of this emotional and physical pain.

Then I discovered the Paleo diet.

A naturopath, and good friend of mine, told me that I should change my diet to (in a nutshell) cut all grains, sugar, and dairy intake. The first thing I realized was that was basically like changing everything I ate, all-day, everyday! This was my second life-changer...

Within the first month I went into remission from my flare-ups and my pain (although still there) had subsided substantially. I was able to exercise again and I was given hope, and a positive outlook on life again.

Now, I've been in remission for over 2 years, plus my pain is gone, I've lost a lot of weight, and I have more energy to spend time with my kids than I ever thought possible.

The Modern Caveman series is meant to make the Paleo Lifestyle, an easy lifestyle to follow. It doesn't have to be as difficult for you as it was for me. I documented these recipes as a mother, on a budget, with an expensive palette, on an expensive diet, who had very little time to cook. These recipes are what I use to eat the foods I grew up loving, while staying on the diet I ended up needing! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The Sunken by S. C. Green (Grymm & Epic Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by steffmetal (author): Love steampunk? Love dark fantasy and alternate history? I'm offering 100 free ebook copies of my new novel, The Sunken, to awesome LibraryThing readers. Set in an alternate Georgian London where dinosaurs still survive, The Sunken should appeal to fantasy, dystopian and steampunk fans. I'd love for you to leave an honest review on Amazon, GoodReads or LibraryThing and let me know what you think!

Description: In the heart of London lies the Engine Ward, a district forged in coal and steam, where the great Engineering Sects vie for ultimate control of the country. For many, the Ward is a forbidding, desolate place, but for Nicholas Thorne, the Ward is a refuge. He has returned to London under a cloud of shadow to work for his childhood friend, the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Deep in the Ward's bowels, Nicholas can finally escape his strange affliction – the thoughts of animals that crowd his head. But seeing Brunel interact with his mechanical creations, Nicholas is increasingly concerned that his friend may be succumbing to the allure of his growing power. That power isn't easily cast aside, and the people of London need Brunel to protect the streets from the prehistoric monsters that roam the city.

King George III has approved Brunel's ambitious plan to erect a Wall that would shut out the swamp dragons and protect the city. But in secret, the King cultivates an army of Sunken: men twisted into flesh-eating monsters by a thirst for blood and lead. Only Nicholas and Brunel suspect that something is wrong, that the Wall might play into a more sinister purpose—to keep the people of London trapped inside.

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

Offered by agisby (author): I'm offering a giveaway in the hope of getting reviews, but I don't want to pressure readers thinking they have to review. Review it if you want to, but if you'd just prefer to read without reviewing, that's good too :)

Description: Male/Male Romance

The neighbouring kingdoms of Oscia and Arcathia have been at a tentative peace for three years after centuries of warfare. Prince Severin of Arcathia has been brought up to put duty before all else and as the only son of the King and Queen, it is his duty to marry and produce an heir. His parents want him to marry an Oscian princess to cement that tentative peace. Unfortunately Severin isn't interested in princesses. Now, if he had his pick of princes that would be another matter.

Havyn has been a slave all his life. When his aptitude for wizardry is discovered, he finds himself purchased and freed by Prince Severin and apprenticed to the royal wizard, Ildar. His duty is to stay chaste to keep his powers strong, but his feelings for Severin sorely test his resolve.

With kingdoms at war, the throne hanging in the balance, magic in the air, and outside forces trying to keep them apart, can the two men find happiness together, or is duty more important than love?

DINNER INVITATION by Henry Sullivan (Henry L. Sullivan III)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by henrys708 (author): Thanks to everyone who read and reviewed SWEPT AWAY, episode one of THE AMERICAN FATHERS. I know you will enjoy DINNER INVITATION. This sequel to episode one is full of interesting twists in Sheila's relationship with Jasira. And on top of all that, you meet Irene.

Description: Hung over from their first weekend together, Sheila is delivered a mysterious invitation to join Jasira for dinner.

DINNER INVITATION is episode two of THE AMERICAN FATHERS. It opens with Sheila wondering why Jasira is going to New York instead of DC, a worry which is exacerbated by Jarira's mention of 'a friend' named Irene who is helping her with an assignment.

This episode is important for several reasons.

First, it furthers Sheila's relationship with Jasira. They've only just met, and they've only spent one weekend together. So there's still a lot they don't know about one another.

Second, Sheila has questions about how she met Jasira in the first place. It's clear to her that their meeting was planned, but she wants to know the circumstances. Who set it up? Rima, or Jasira? How long did they plan this? Sheila goes to Rima with these questions and also confronts her on comments that were made at the dinner at Rima's house on Friday night.

Third, this is the first time readers of the series will meet Irene Daco, which means this is also your introduction to the point one percent world of THE AMERICAN FATHERS. This world is different from anything Sheila could imagine. I'm confident readers of the series will find it quite interesting.

Space City 6: Houston Stories from the Weird to the Wonderful by Greenleaf, Leventhal, Maguire, Rothberg, Shaughnessy Broughton (Black Mare Books)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by castlemaguire (publisher): Space City 6 is the debut anthology from the Space City Scribes, a Houston-based independent writers' group. We have gathered together a weird and wonderful connection of stories in different genres (from the historical to the hysterical) with a Houston flair. We are seeking reviews pending the official launch on November 8, 2014.

Description: Space City 6 is a collection of short stories from the weird to the wonderful, all with a Houston flair. We begin with the birth of Houston in a mosquito—and alligator-people—infested swamp where a mermaid is intent on stopping human encroachment. Fast forward to the 1940s where we join a soldier and his new bride as they struggle with the challenges of separation due to World War II. We take a funny and fantastical turn with a Louisiana transplant who learns the hard way that jackalopes do exist. And they have a penchant for blood and hard liquor. And then we journey to a darker side of the city as we find out what happens when an unstable woman with a loaded gun wreaks havoc on an idyllic community. Follow us on another twist as we explore the ins and outs of discrimination - all the new professor wants is to fit in, but students and faculty shun her as readily as she shuns the light. What's a vampire to do? Finally, travel to the far future on a treasure hunt. The Houston tunnel systems are in ruin and a wealthy real estate tycoon wants to revitalize, but he soon discovers more than just real estate under the rubble.

The family is anti-Nazi but pays lip-service to the Nazi overlords, while helping to run a Monarchist Resistance group. Werner, an ambulance driver, is injured in Normandy. Sofie creates a problem for her family by falling in love and secretly marrying a Nazi officer who participates in Hitler's Russian Campaign.
The story follows the British members of the family through to the euphoria of VE-Day and, at the same time, the Austrian members through to the Allied bombing of Vienna. Rudi and Nell in Africa are caught between the winners’ euphoria and the losers’ humiliation.

Despite the dark times, humor, hope, love and redemption feature in equal measure.

The Valentine Circle (A Silas de San Michel Mystery) by Reinaldo DelValle

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by rjanvierdelvalle (author): I’m giving away my debut mystery novel in exchange for an honest review on Amazon, LibraryThing, or Goodreads, in order to increase the novel's exposure and to get more reviews online, which is essential for a self-published author. I can email all types of ebook formats (PRC, MOBI, EPUB, and PDF).

Description: Boston, winter of 1885.

A string of kidnappings plagues the snow-laden city of Boston while a murderer runs amok, hunting and killing the unborn babies of the city's social elite.

A powerful group called the Valentine Society controls the city's police department, and the people of Boston's last hope for justice lies in the hands of a man who mysteriously washes ashore from a distant foreign land, battered and bruised.

To complicate matters, he doesn't remember who he is or where he's from...


Just a week after he is found unconscious aboard a cargo ship, Officer Silas de San Michel is thrust into a mysterious case dealing with the vicious killings of pregnant teenage girls. But what he doesn't know is that these young girls belong to the secret Valentine Society, an elite group of Boston socialites that have corrupted the city's top officials, unashamedly operating above the law.

With the help of his boss, the highly intelligent Inspector Belloc, and his lovely assistant, the boisterous and spirited Miss Posy Chapman, Silas embarks on a journey that takes him inside a secret world of rules and privileges, of oppressive parents and mischievous alliances.

Weighed down by the sickness of memory loss, Silas struggles to maintain his sanity as he begins to discover the darkness plaguing his own sordid past, a darkness that ultimately brings him to the brink of becoming that which he hunts, a serial killer who was raised and trained by an insidious organization known only as The Factory.

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

Offered by Tracey_Alvarez (author): I'm offering e-copies of In Too Deep (Due South Book 1) a contemporary romance. The Due South series is set in New Zealand and focuses on family, community, and of course, each book contains a scorching hot, contemporary romance. In Too Deep was awarded the 2014 Koru-Award of Excellence for Best First Book by the Romance Writers of New Zealand.

Description: Love small-town series romance with an unforgettable cast of characters? The Due South series will transport you to an unspoilt, wild island off the coast of New Zealand. Meet Piper and West...

She vowed never to return.

To save her brother from financial ruin, Piper Harland must do the one thing she swore she'd never do—return to the tiny island hometown where Ryan "West" Westlake crushed her heart. Piper is tough, resilient and a little wild—much like the remote and beautiful Stewart Island where she grew up. As a cop who's part of the elite New Zealand Police National Dive Squad, bringing the dead back to their families still doesn't stop the guilt she feels over her father's drowning death. Now nine years later she's obligated to return to a hostile community as the outsider, and forced to work with the man who was once her best friend and first lover.

She's a risk he can't take.

West is an Island man, through and through. As owner of the local pub, he lives and breathes the local community, and sure as hell can't imagine living anywhere else. But most of all he refuses to ever fall for a woman like his flighty mother. He lost Piper once to give her the chance to fulfil her dreams of becoming a cop. But now she's back for an unexpected six week visit to help her brother—his best mate. Maybe West wants her a little bit, maybe he can't resist the temptation to tease and touch her, but can he fall in love with such a flight risk?

Saying goodbye for the second time might just destroy them both.

˃˃˃ Fresh...Seductive...Heart-warming...
And enough steaminess to make your toes curl! Intended for mature 18+ aged readers.

My Psychic War with Uncle Sam by E. Alexander Scianna (Harmonious Circle Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by alecazandre (publisher): E-book edition (.epub or .mobi) of our timely underground literary fiction novel My Psychic War with Uncle Sam.

We’d appreciate your sincere LT book-review, and if possible on Barnes & Noble (http://goo.gl/x1CnT) or Amazon (http://goo.gl/Z2rKw).

Regards,
Harmonious Circle Press
http://theharmoniouscirclepress.net

Description: An intellectual coming of age, My Psychic War with Uncle Sam swings from life on the military base with G.I. Joes in starched fatigues to the streets of Seattle where Dennis and Marcel encounter the hippie culture seeking nirvana on hallucinogenic drugs. The reader is taken on an exhilarating romp through western thought and history as the ideological struggles that permeated the 60’s generation are juxtaposed with the uncertainties of modern day life. With heavy doses of mysticism, drama, and humor—just to keep things interesting—the authors ask, “Who is Uncle Sam?”

Dennis DeLuccio invites the reader into his underground garden to rethink politics, war, sex, drugs, philosophy, religion, the occult, the origin of the hippie movement, and the meaning of a psychic war. Dennis drifts back to 1968 and his first assignment at Fort Lewis, Washington. He remembers Marcel Dreyfus, a young soldier who has just returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam. The many GI’s who say they don’t believe in the war, yet stand at attention, fall silent and follow orders even as they are shipped out to Nam, mystified Dennis. Marcel however cuts through the illusions of the so-called patriots with wit and rhetoric.

Packed with documented facts of U.S. foreign policy, paraphrased from the works of Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Bertrand Russell and others, as well as broadcast news reports of the period, My Psychic War with Uncle Sam infuses social comment with lived experience. Like Joseph Heller’s Catch-22, it fashions the account of a young army recruit living stateside through the Vietnam era into an eloquent and deeply funny plea against butchery in the service of authority. My Psychic War with Uncle Sam weaves historical fact and dramatic fiction into an essential storybook of our times that is both entertaining and enlightening.

“What a surprise! This is an exuberant romp through history, politics, and philosophy, through the eyes of a modern Alice in Wonderland. Escaping down a hole in his living room floor, Dennis seeks refuge from the horrors of 9-11 in his secret garden only to confront madness and paranoia, as he tends his garden and searches for an understanding of his experiences in the army during the Viet Nam era. The novel will keep you wondering what supposed masters of truth can be trusted to guide Dennis home in his psychic war with Uncle Sam?”
—Cynthia McKinney, U.S. Congresswoman and 2008 Green Party U.S. Presidential Nominee

“A dramatic account of one man’s psychic and political struggle against the cant and crimes of establishment institutions. Written with engaging candor and much human spirit.”
—Michael Parenti, author of Contrary Notions and God and His Demons

So far My Psychic War with Uncle Sam is earning mostly 5-star reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, LibraryThing, and Goodreads. Here are some links relevant to the novel and its authors:

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

Offered by EllenAllen (author): I am giving away 100 e-copies of my new YA contemporary thriller, The Sham. I would obviously love to receive reviews in exchange (ideally on goodreads and amazon).

The book is 78,000 words (approx. 248 pages) and I can offer pdf, mobi and epub formats. It is a standalone novel.

Description: When love leads to death, be careful who you trust…

Eighteen-year-old Emily Heath would love to leave her dead-end town, known locally as "The Sham", with her boyfriend, Jack, but he's very, very sick; his body is failing and his brain is shutting down. He's also in hiding, under suspicion of murder. Six months' ago, strange signs were painted across town in a dialect no one has spoken for decades and one of Emily's classmates washed up in the local floods.

Emily has never trusted her instincts and now they're pulling her towards Jack, who the police think is a sham himself, someone else entirely. As the town wakes to discover new signs plastered across its walls, Emily must decide who and what she trusts, and fast: local vigilantes are hunting Jack; the floods, the police, and her parents are blocking her path; and the town doesn’t need another dead body.

**This book is unsuitable for younger readers; it contains discussions about murder scenes, conversations about sex, and slight profanity.

A Shiver of Wonder by Daniel Kelley

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by LeaDeLinkley (author): Enjoy, and thank you!

Description: A first grade girl who can prognosticate but frets about whether she’s good or bad, a murder where the obvious culprits claim they had nothing to do with it, a man who is told that he’ll meet his future self and then does. A shimmering web of intrigue connects all of these, and a deft literary touch gives life to an enchanting set of fully realized characters.

The protagonist of A Shiver of Wonder is David Wilcott, fallen star of a famously imploded online enterprise. Escaping not only his past but who he had become in the past, he chose the bucolic town of Shady Grove for his rehabilitation, and a decaying apartment complex called the Rainbow Arms for his home. A year and a half into his new life, young Clair moves in with her mysterious caretaker, and David finds himself both intrigued by the child and involved in a struggle to understand all that is occurring around her. Everyone with whom Clair converses appears to alter his or her behavior. And as tensions heighten and strange events escalate, both David and Clair find themselves scrutinizing the relationship between their actions and the consequences of those actions, as well as seeking to stabilize the internal scales of morality that each spends immeasurable time and energy balancing. The many intricate layers of this novel are peeled slowly, slowly away, and the world becomes smaller and larger, more perplexing and yet more entrancing than David ever thought possible.

Steeped in mystery as well as a small town’s myriad intimacies, this 63,000-word literary thriller with a paranormal twist is a riveting take on redemptive journey, a road that nearly all us find ourselves traveling at some point in our lives.

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

Offered by KylieG (author): I'm offering e-copies of The Opposite of Wild (Clover Park series, Book 1) a humorous, sizzling, contemporary romance. The Clover Park series features the O'Hare brothers, three guys you'd like to have a drink with and maybe a little more.

Winners will receive the ebook in Mobi or ePub format. I'd really appreciate a review on Librarything, Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble, iBooks, Google Play or Goodreads. Thanks!

Description: Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

"Funny. Hot. Sweet."
And some very steamy scenes! Intended for mature 18+ aged readers.

Call of the Lost Ages: A Study of the Indus Valley Script by Subhajit Ganguly (Vasto)

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

Offered by SubhajitGanguly (author): Please remember to leave your valuable review in as many places as you can, after you read the book. Hope you enjoy reading it, as much as we enjoyed making it.

Description: The inscriptions found on the various artifacts from the Indus Valley Civilization hold in their hearts hidden chronicles of time. Many unsolved mysteries remain regarding who were these people, how did they suddenly build such an advanced civilization, how were theirs lives like, how much did they interact with their neighbouring cultures, and where did they suddenly vanish . One of the most ancient and advanced civilizations, it mysteriously seems to have disappeared almost suddenly, and that too without any trace. Will the study of the script used by this civilization reveal any clue to these puzzles? Will it help us unravel these ancient mysteries? Finally and most importantly, will a study of the Indus Valley script help us in gaining more knowledge about the ancient world?
Awesome read...Really enjoyed the read. Though primarily a work of research, the book is comparable to any spine-chilling crime-thriller. [by S. Ramamurthy] - Ask David Book Reviews

Excellent use of logic
This book is a fabulous example of how a proper analysis of signs that are right in front of our eyes can lead us to wisdom. Has the rare quality of mysterious pursuit. - Yola Jackson

'The author attempts a detailed and unbiased study of the Indus Valley script. In order to do so, he approaches the subject from various quarters that include a thorough investigation of reasons for decline of the civilization, a possible continuation of civilization, a possible source of the civilization predating its span, etc...The author has a unique way of building upon facts, brick by brick, to build the complete monument.'
-
Jerry Anderson, Midwest Book Review

Interesting points raised This work raises some very interesting and important points regarding the history of the human civilization. - Phil Jones

Subhajit Ganguly pieces together fragments of history and evaluates the clues to form a comprehensive picture of the ancient world. The way of reductionism that he follows is truely thrilling. - Andrew Gilmore

Though everything looks perfect on the surface, all is not well at the Indian Museum. Mysterious, almost ghostly, events start happening. An inferno follows. The dystopian whirlpool of events spares nobody, not even the Director of the museum. In such trying times, one cannot be too sure, who is a friend and who is a foe. In the murkiness, it is not very clear who is on which side of the law. Even the deduction seems to have hit a dead end! What is clear, however, is that a serious crime has been committed. It is up to one man now to go to the bottom of it all.

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

Offered by MarkJMaxwell (author): I'm the author of The London Project. I'm offering a free copy of the book via email in mobi, ePub or PDF formats in exchange for an honest review.

Set in a familiar yet futuristic London, The London Project blends a detective who-done-it mystery with science fiction to produce a fast paced crime technothriller.

Description: Portal has transformed the lives of London's residents. From communications to entertainment, transport to health care, the tech giant’s free services are utilised by every Londoner. As a consequence, Portal harvests the minutiae of their daily lives.

Detective Sergeant Louisa Bennett is assigned to investigate the death of a young girl. The autopsy is inconclusive, revealing an unidentifiable cellular structure permeating the victim’s brain. Louisa’s case is further complicated when no trace of the girl can be found within Portal. It’s as if she doesn’t exist.

Following an attack on Portal’s network, private data on every London resident is leaked. In the ensuing chaos, three high-ranking members of a criminal syndicate are assassinated. It becomes clear to Louisa that the perpetrators have used Portal’s systems to coordinate the killings. When she uncovers a connection between her own case and the Portal breach, Louisa becomes a target herself.

To save her own life Louisa must uncover the truth behind the girl’s death — a truth which leads her deep into the heart of The London Project.

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

Offered by bellesfairytale (publisher): Paper Crane Books is giving away 100 ebook copies of A Sweet, Little Dream to people who are interested in reading a collection of poetry and short stories. We're exchanging a free copy in exchange for an honest review on Amazon, though anyone who signs up isn't obligated to leave a review.

Description: This collection was born thanks to adventures to magical places that my youthful imagination crafted, a royal decree that henceforth let me be known as “The Queen of Details,” and a very energetic “role model for today’s youth.” Writing had always been a comfort, a way of expressing myself since my voice was locked tight due to shyness. But because of these events, gifts, professors, and people in my life, light was shed on a pathway to writing as a career. In this collection, you will find works mostly from my high school years, exploring an array of genres. You’ll learn about my younger self–both child and teen–who made me the woman I am today.

It all started with a notebook, a pencil, words of encouragement, a sweet, little dream.

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

Offered by RussellEarlSmith (author): If you're a Michael Chrichton fan (like I am) I think you'll enjoy this novel. Inspired by several evenings of conversation with a former Mossad intrusion agent, this book will open your eyes to what is possible today with technology. Really appreciate your reviews, no matter how succinct - they are the lifeblood of authors today.

Description: "Wow, I absolutely loved reading Buzzworm by Theo Cage. It is filled with enough intrigue to keep you glued to the pages and reading nonstop to the ending you never see coming. What fascinated me even more is Theo Cage's transfixing description of the workings of the hacker community." Review by Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite.

Mary Ellen joined the CIA when she was 23, dreaming of a life of glory and intrigue. Instead she got the graveyard shift, buried in the bowels of Langley sorting through an endless stream of surveillance photos and blurry satellite images. Then late one evening, another dinner date canceled, she discovers an awful truth. The CIA, the United States, likely the entire globe, is about to be brought to its knees by the greatest threat of the modern world; a computer super-virus called Buzzworm.

For the first time in Mary Ellen's career, she sees her chance to finally make a difference, maybe even save the world, except no one at the CIA will listen to her.

The agency then decides to hire an eccentric hacker to find the source of the virus. Within days he becomes a prime murder suspect when his attempt to remove the mysterious program causes the deaths of several key employees.

Gregory Hyde, Washington DC’s oldest and most infamous homicide detective is brought in to solve the case. He finds himself reluctantly on the trail of both the hacker and Mary Ellen who have teamed up to track down the lair of Buzzworm in the wilds of Virginia.

Is Buzzworm a computer virus or a serial killer? You won't find out until the last explosive chapters.

It tells, in simple language, the very recent developments in the world of science in general and of physics in particular. 'It becomes increasingly difficult for us to predict emergent phenomena, as there is an increase in the number of properties that we have to consider for doing that. However, it should also be kept in mind than merely a large number of insignificant components, coming together and constituting a given system, is not enough to ensure that we have emergent properties. The noise that is produced may sometimes subdue the emergent properties too. '

When a flash of lightning destroys the venue for his family's annual Christmas ball, Lord Benedict Sheffield intends to enjoy a relaxing holiday for once. But after twelve days of beguiling Lady Amelia's guerrilla tactics, he's up to his cravat with tinsel . . . and tumbling head over heels in love.

Back Again by Susan May (Digital Contact)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by SusanMayWriter (author): This is a giveaway for the NOVEL of BACK AGAIN. I had written a short story which I gave away here on Library Thing in June. However at the urging of my two editors, I went back and wrote the full novel (around 350 pages). If you have read the short story, don’t worry, the novel is not ruined by it. There is much more to the story, and it’s a page turner.

My editor’s words after reading the novel: “Love the ending. You’ve written something pretty wonderful here.”

If you haven’t read the short story, the novel will be a treat. Read the reviews for the short story below, but here is the synopsis. If you don’t win a copy here, please feel free to sign up for my newsletter http://eepurl.com/3P-Wz . I will be sending out advance copies for review to my wonderful readers signed up to it.

Description: THE SYNOPSIS
Could there be any greater nightmare than living through the death of your child?
Yes! Reliving it again and again.

A tragic accident takes Dawn’s only child right before her eyes. The following surreal days are filled with soul-destroying grief and moments she never wants to live again—until, inexplicably, she finds herself back again, living that day.
It’s a second chance to save her son. But changing fate is not as simple as it first appears. Time is not Dawn’s ally.

“She’d lost count of the number of times she’d lived through this. Every time it hurt as much as the time before. Eventually, she thought that she must become immune to the events, and that her heart wouldn’t shatter into a thousand, million pieces—
But it always did.”


Reviews of BACK AGAIN, the short story

“Well-written. Thought-provoking. Highly recommended.” Peg McDaniel-Amazon
“I recommend this book to fans of time travel, parents, and those who thing texting and driving is okay. Please, read this story!” Chris Mentzer, author of the Askinar Towers
“It is a story not easily forgotten.” L. Frier-Amazon
“A MUST READ novella that will tug at your heart!” Ana Medina-Amazon
“A well written and haunting story that the reader will not soon forget.” Evie-Amazon
“Heartbreaking and, yet, wonderfully told.” Tamara-Amazon

A Plague of Shadows by Travis Simmons (Wyrding Ways Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by travis1325 (author): I'm offering 100 free copies of my book, A Plague of Shadows, in exchange for honest reviews on amazon and librarything. Please note that your review will have to be logged on amazon on 01/20/2015 when the book is live.

Description: Enter the world of O, where a plague of shadows creeps through the land, ensnaring those it infects and turning them into soulless shadow people damned to pollute all of the nine worlds along the world tree. Fear of these darklings, and the magic they possess drives people to kill those that appear different or go against the light.

At nineteen Abagail Bauer should be setting off on her own, not still caring for her father and her family home as she’s doing. The hard life has made her practical, and she has little time for flights of fancy, unlike her sister, Leona, who insists her doll can predict the future. That all changes one day while tending their bees she encounters a blackness spreading through the hive. Abagail knows what it is: the shadow plague, the sickness that will creep into ones soul and make them nothing more than a shadow, a darkling bent on the destruction of all things good. And now she’s caught it. She doesn’t believe in other worlds outside of the mystical land of O, but when her father finds out she’s infected he decides to send her to the one person who can help her learn to control this weird power: her Aunt Mattelyn in a distant world called Agaranth.

Joined by her neighbor, Rorick Keuper, on a quest of revenge against the darklings who destroyed his home, and her seer sister, Leona, Abagail sets off across the rainbow bridge to another world in hopes of curing herself of the plague. But Abagail finds that her infection is only the beginning of her ill fate. When she arrives in the new world, she’s far from where she needs to be. Braving the winter of this new land, along with the darklings that hunt her, will Abagail be able to find her aunt before the shadow consumes her, or is she destined to become a husk of who she once was and kill those she loves?

Best Strategies To Cure Emotional Eating: The Psychology Of Emotional Eating Explained by Joy Marensky (Overcoming)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Colin.Scott (publisher): Let us know what you think of this book. Please leave us a review.

Description: If you've ever wondered what's behind the psychology of emotional eating, because it is psychological, this book will help you dive into that and discover what goes on in the mind to bring about that kind of behavior. Those who eat emotionally consider it as an "outlet" to relieve their self from whatever pain or discomfort they're feeling in their life. Some of these emotions are deep rooted going all the way back to one's childhood. Just a certain thought can trigger or cause an onset of overwhelming emotions strong enough to have a person sit there and wallow in their thoughts and before they know it, they start eating away. The information is nicely laid out because it mentions what each emotion is and then goes into detail on how that can lead to emotional eating. After exploring those details, which is great information, the strategies for curing it are discussed. These strategies once implemented can really make a world of difference not only to the person directly who suffers from it, but also relationships that the person has with others.

Star Chamber Brotherhood by Preston Fleming (PF Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by PrestonFleming (author): If you enjoy reading classic suspense thrillers with a political edge in the tradition of Frederick Forsyth, Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy, I invite you to read STAR CHAMBER BROTHERHO0D. If you like it, please post a brief review to LibraryThing, Goodreads or Amazon.com.

NOTE: Readers who post a review of any of my books will be eligible to receive a free review copy of my next book, due for release later this year.

Description: “A full-bodied thriller relayed by a consummate storyteller.” KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Politically charged entertainment with an engaging protagonist and a tightly machined plot moving smoothly toward resolution.” PACIFIC BOOK REVIEW

"An engaging fast-paced thriller. Reader will spend pleasant hours rooting for a team of assassins." BOOKPLEASURES.COM

The second book in the Kamas Trilogy, STAR CHAMBER BROTHERHOOD begins five years after the Kamas revolt. A Kamas survivor who returns illegally to Boston to find his missing daughter is ordered by the prisoners' covert Star Committee to kill the commandant who crushed the revolt.

Boston. 2029. Frank Werner, a Boston businessman arrested for dissident political activity, has survived a brutal government assault on a mutinous corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, and a year at hard labor in a remote Yukon tungsten mine. He gains amnesty during a brief political thaw and returns to Boston illegally in search of his only surviving daughter, Marie.

No sooner does Werner gain a foothold in Boston as a bootlegger-bartender and move in with a lovely widowed pediatrician than his new life begins to unravel. A former Kamas rebel leader who twice saved his life assigns him a mission by authority of the prisoners' covert Star Committee. The objective: to execute the warden who quelled the Kamas revolt five years before.

Werner, now nearly sixty, accepts the assignment reluctantly and recruits four trusted friends for his team. Each has a dark past and a different reason for joining the conspiracy. But the mission goes awry twice. After the second failed attempt on the former warden, who has been reassigned to Boston, each of the other team members is killed or leaves the field. Left alone, Werner resolves to complete the operation on his own. Before he can follow through, however, his missing daughter suddenly reappears. Now, by attacking, he risks any chance he might have of rejoining her.

STAR CHAMBER BROTHERHOOD offers unforgettable characters, rapidly mounting suspense and a richly imagined vision of an America gone terribly wrong. With his distinctive understated prose, Preston Fleming manages to evoke strong emotions and force wrenching choices in a new book that more than fulfills the promise of his debut novel, FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS.

NOTE: The third novel in the Kamas Trilogy, EXILE HUNTER, was released on Amazon.com on April 20, 2014.

Offered by RussellEarlSmith (author): Sometimes you have to do the hard things. A child molester has moved into their neighbourhood and they're not happy about it - two retired guys with too much time on their hands - and revenge etched across their sclerotic hearts.

A short thriller by Theo Cage.

Description: Reviews gratefully accepted.

"Wow! Where to even begin. I absolutely loved this story!! It was an easy read but not a fluff story either. It was very engaging and had my full attention from the start. Although what these two friends are doing is wrong in every way, a part of me wanted them to succeed and get away with their "projects". Not to say that they didn't have a match up with two unsavory characters that gave the two main characters, Leo and Gordon, a run for their money...and their lives. My only complaint would be that the story wasn't long enough!! I wanted more! It was that good!! Maybe someday this story will turn into a full blown book. I would buy it in an instant. I loved this story! It was entertaining, thrilling, and a story that I wont soon forget and will recommend to anyone who will listen. Mr Theo Cage has made a fan for life out of me!!"

The Trigger by L.J. Sellers (Spellbinder Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by ljsellers (author): I introduced Agent Jamie Dallas in Crimes of Memory (Detective Jackson #8). I had so much fun writing her undercover role that I knew she needed her own series. The Trigger is the first book featuring Agent Dallas as the protagonist. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do.

Description: Agent Jamie Dallas loves undercover assignments that get her out of the Phoenix Bureau. But when a woman and her baby disappear from an isolated community of preppers in Northern California, she knows the risk of infiltrating the armed group is dangerously high.

Once inside the compound, she discovers that the brothers who founded Destiny are scheming something far more devious than kidnapping or murder. Meanwhile, her local FBI contact, Agent McCullen, is pulled from her team and assigned to investigate the murder of a woman with phony ID, found at the bottom of a motel pool.

Soon Dallas finds herself in deeper trouble than she's ever encountered—with no way to reach her contacts. Can she break free of the bunker and stop their bizarre end-of-world plans? Will Agent McCullen identify the killer in time to help?

The Trigger is a gripping story that highlights our greatest fear—how a megalomaniac and a hacker-for-hire can threaten civilization as we know it.

Three years ago, Danny Morris left behind a gun, a tonne of questions and a gaping hole in the lives of those who loved him. What he didn’t leave was a suicide note.

On the anniversary of his death, his closest friends gather at his parents’ beach house in New Zealand's idyllic Marlborough Sounds. Danny’s girlfriend, Kate, holds fast to his memory by continuing to live in the house they shared. Struggling to move on with her life, her blossoming feelings for Danny’s best friend, Finn, only complicate matters. Withdrawing from his high-flying lifestyle, Max has carved out a much simpler life. Self-medicating with alcohol, fighting off nightmares he refuses to talk about, the memory of finding Danny’s body has him sailing dangerously close to the edge. While Finn is finally ready to address his feelings for Kate, trying to save Max from himself dredges up long-buried anger and frustration that threaten to overwhelm him. For Lacey and Gavin, a recent bereavement gives them a heart-wrenching insight of a different kind.

Instead of time easing the pain, the group find themselves stuck in limbo, awaiting the understanding and peace that has so far eluded them.

Three years ago a single bullet ricocheted through all their lives, but this year everything will change.

** WARNING: Due to course language and subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 18+ **

Description: Being a teenager is tough enough, but try it when you have schizophrenia and psychic abilities that make all of your imaginary friends real...

The odds are against Mouch—he’s locked up in Talsom Mental Asylum; his only friends are a sock puppet and his shadow. Worst of all, he suffers from amnesia; his earliest memory is of being found alone in a mall wearing nothing but a pair of polka-dotted boxer shorts, a pair of fluffy white bunny slippers, and a hat made from a newspaper.… and covered in a generous amount of blood. When an elderly gentleman visits him and reveals that Mouch is not crazy but is actually a psychic, Mouch does what any rational person would do—he runs for the door. Once outside of Talsom, Mouch soon finds himself thrust into a battle against a sinister movement of dark psychics who threaten to destroy the entire psychic community.

The Innkeeper of Bethlehem–The Story of Santa Claus by Scott Roloff (Scott Roloff)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Scott_Roloff (author): Just in time for Christmas!
A free .mobi copy in exchange for a review posted on Amazon.

Description: A Christmas book for children, families, and anyone who has ever wondered how Santa Claus came to be. This book will permit you and your family to enjoy Santa Claus and the other secular customs of Christmas within the Christian celebration of Jesus’s birth. For little children, Santa Claus becomes a real person delivering presents to them from Jesus. Each Christmas season, reading a chapter a night will become a holiday tradition for the entire family.

The tale begins with Shai and Adi, the childless owners of an inn in Bethlehem. When Shai rents out their bedroom, they must sleep in the stable. During the night, Joseph and Mary arrive and Adi helps Mary through a difficult labor. They bond, and when an angel appears telling Joseph to flee to Egypt with Mary and Jesus, Shai and Adi go with them and become Jesus’s uncle and aunt.

The book tells of Jesus growing up with his friends Mary Magdalene and John, his ministry, and his death and resurrection. These vignettes teach the lessons of life and the Bible through Jesus’s experiences.

The book concludes with Shai and Adi following the Lord’s Star to the North Pole, where angels have built a palace. Jesus wants Shai and Adi to raise the baby angels there until they reach adulthood. The baby angels, or elves as the grown angels derogatively refer to them, are a mischievous lot. Shai becomes known as Santa Claus when a baby angel mispronounces “Shai, Uncle of Jesus,” claus being the angelic word for uncle.

Jesus also wants to give a present to each boy and girl on his birthday, Christmas Day, a tradition he began during his life when he gave presents to his family. As part of their training, once a baby angel sprouts wings he or she is assigned to watch children and make toys for them. On Christmas Eve, Santa flies the sleigh to heaven to present the new adult angels to God, and then flies around the world delivering Jesus’s presents to the children of the world.

The book is a story within a story, told by a visiting uncle to a little girl and her nephew. Each night before bedtime beginning on December 6th, St. Nicholas’s Day, and continuing through Christmas Eve, the uncle tells part of the story. Instead of numbers, the chapters are titled by day. The book can be read as a normal book or a chapter each day, and it can be read to oneself or out loud to children. When read out loud, the chapter lengths vary between 10 and 15 minutes.

December 6th–The Inn
December 7th–The Birth of Jesus
December 8th–The Flight to Egypt
December 9th–Obeying Your Parents
December 10th–Befriending the Shunned
December 11th–Choices
December 12th–Joseph Dies
December 13th–The Test
December 14th–Perseverance
December 15th–Jesus Preaches
December 16th–Jesus is God
December 17th–The Black Day
December 18th–Easter
December 19th–What It Means to be a Christian
December 20th–The Journey North
December 21st–The Palace at the North Pole
December 22nd–A Day at Santa’s Palace
December 23rd–The Chapel of Light
December 24th–Christmas Eve

Wherever you may live, and by whatever name that you may know him–Santa Claus, Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Pere Noel or Sinter Klaas–you will never forget the true story of Santa Claus, as you read it every Christmas with your children, who will someday read it every Christmas with their children too.

The Prediction by Darren Sugrue (KDC Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by DarrenSugrue (author): First 100 Reviewers - VIP List
http://www.darrensugrue.com/first-100...
To an unpublished writer, a positive review or rating is like gold dust. It's a tiny step in the journey of getting your work noticed (and possibly published). I've given myself the goal of collecting 100 honest reviews by the end of 2014. It is for this reason that I am giving The Prediction away for FREE!
Obviously I would like to attract as many positive reviews as possible, but if you genuinely don't like the book, I still encourage you to write a review. Dealing with criticism is part of what being a writer is all about.

I do ask however that you read the blurb before downloading the book or entering the Giveaway just to see if it is in fact your kind of book to begin with (i.e. Thriller, Drama, Suspense).
What do the first 100 Reviewers get in return?
If (when!) it is officially published - a free signed physical copy
A free e-copy of my next book (probably 2015)
A link to your blog (if you have one) on my website
Special mention in the acknowledgements section of my next book
And well, if I ever make it big and become a bestselling author, trust me when I say the First 100 Reviewers VIP list is NOT something I will easily forget! :-)

Description: PRAISE for "The Prediction":
"Gripping storyline, full of suspense and a most unexpected ending."
"An engaging suspense-filled book that kept me awake reading way into the night!"
"I finished it in one sitting - amazing. This book deserves to be read!"
"This is one of the most compelling, vivid, clever stories I've read in quite some time."

Nobody knows the day they’ll die... until now.

Mathematical genius Daniel Geller has developed a formula to predict a person’s date of death only to have it rejected by the faculty at Trinity College. Totally devastated Daniel turns his back on the world he once loved.

Twelve years on, Daniel’s old professor John Redmond and his wife are coming to terms with the death of their ten-year-old son. Could Daniel's formula have predicated his death? Revisiting the thesis, the professor makes an astonishing discovery: out of the five fellow students whom Daniel used the formula on, one of them died on the exact date predicted by Daniel.

One more is due to die in six days: Daniel’s ex-lover Grace.

The professor draws Daniel back into the world of mathematics where he is suddenly faced with the dilemma of allowing someone he once loved to die to be one step closer to proving his thesis and enjoying a prestige he once dreamed of...

Set in the vibrant cities of Dublin and Amsterdam, The Prediction is a powerful story about coping with shattered dreams, the loss of a loved one, and an illustration of just how unpredictable the human heart can be.

Marc Luis – famous, successful and painfully handsome – has everything his celebrity lifestyle could afford, but a chance meeting with a young woman from the Welsh Valleys shows him the emptiness in the lie he’s living, and leads him on an intense journey to find truth and love.

Whatever it may be, it's driven the Goddess to some very desperate measures.

Life for the Harmon siblings has been hard enough, but now they face responsibilities that they never asked for. They never asked for power. They never asked for a world of monsters. They never asked to come face-to-face with demons, the corrupted of their own people, or their own mortality.

But that is just what they will have to do. They are the chosen heroes of Cornelia, the final hope for order and sanity, the last line of defence against the darkness.

They are the Buan.

Description: The Hot Cauldron II continues to bring you closer to the strange and twisted tales that are guaranteed to make you think twice. A jilted lover during the holidays is never a good idea, just as Amy. A teen’s misconduct causes a rift between rival parents, or is that truly the reason behind the discord? An ancient being protects a young woman from the jealous family member who was left out of the fortune. Or as a writer soon learns, having fans in the wrong places can be deadly. In addition, Lachelle rewrites a classic and fills it with greed and materialistic hunger to find that no one wins when beauty is a beast. These and many more tales await in the second series in the Cauldron line.

Trees as large as mountains, scattered across the desolate land like oases, support all life, safe from the monsters that patrol the night fog on the ground. Races of people living in medieval societies populate the giant trees. Known as the Lorns in this particular tree, they welcome the four kids into their world—until Hellferata, the evil spirit descendent of Medusa, intrudes upon their beloved tree.
As the kids search for a way home, Hellferata searches for the prophesied mortal superhero she must battle to the death. Suspecting Michelle for this golden-haired superhero, Hellferata sends her son, Dracu Mort, into the Lorn Tree to kill her. Fearful of the evil spirit the Lorns move to expel the four Americans from their tree. Thinking quickly, the kids devise a plan to avoid the monsters roaming the land and travel to the next tree, where it is rumored there may be a path back home. Will their ingenuity, cunning, and courage help them make it to the Cascade Tree and find a way home, or will Hellferata and Dracu Mort mete out their wrath before they can escape?
Imparting the inspiring message that fear is but a passing foil and love is the true answer, Arboregal- The Lorn Tree is a spiritual quest of hope and friendship that exposes the inherent power we all share.

PsyBot by Nowick Gray (Cougar WebWorks)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by Nowick (author): This is an unconventional novel, not confined to the box of sci-fi or psychological thriller; yet through those elements it conveys a tale about personal growth and the nature of reality. To get the word out and inspire more reviews, a select number of giveaways are available from the author for a limited time.

Description: Computer viruses are enough of a threat to our digital lives - just as biological viruses are a threat to our health. What if a computer virus were designed to transfer to the user, inserting program cues into neurological circuits and gathering feedback to further manipulate and control?
PsyBot is just that: a cybervirus designed to insert a virtual reality program into the mind of the user. Originally created as a tough-love interface to teach deeper questioning of one's choices, the virus program is hacked and co-opted by higher-up corporate interests as a beta test for a wider application of mind control. Alien intervention is part of the package, too - or that just a red herring? Programmer Joe Norton must navigate a deadly mission, fighting for his sanity and survival while uncovering the real agenda at play.

Crystal Falls by Brad Walseth (Satalyte Publishing)

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

Offered by GKZachary: Please be kind enough to give Brad's book a review on your blog, Amazon, Shelfari, Goodreads or other established review site. Thanks.

Description: “When it came right down to it, I was surprised to discover it really wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to kill Jesse Ray Hawkins.”

So admits sensitive outcast Nate “Preacher” LaPointe at the beginning of Crystal Falls. That the exuberant and charismatic Jesse Ray was a prominent local drug dealer is bad enough, but that fact that he was Preacher’s best friend and mentor makes the crime almost unfathomable. The rest of this tale includes an in-depth examination of how and why this murder has come to pass, as well as the tragic events that occur as a result, the narrative moving forward and backward through time, presenting vignettes from throughout Preacher and Jesse’s lives, as well as that of Jenny Ruthven, the strong-willed girl who grows up with them and completes the triangle that is the nexus of this story.

Careening down a rutted back road to hell, Preacher and Jenny are pursued on all sides by Jesse’s sadistic brothers, a cadre of violent gangbangers, and a clownish, yet corrupt deputy sheriff named Junior, who may be the most dangerous foe of all. Meanwhile, the P.O.V. shifts at times between that of the main characters, as well as others, including a ghost contacted via a Ouija board and a lone wolf roaming the outskirts of this shadowy Upper Peninsula of Michigan (U.P.) town. As the layers unfold, the path leads to the uncovering of another unsolved murder and a century-old mystery. The tension rises to a crescendo as, finding themselves closed in on all sides, the lovers must find a way to survive, even if it results in betrayal and death that ends in a shocking conclusion. A literary crime novel with strong psychological focus loosely retelling the story of King David, Crystal Falls presents a dangerous world where love and friendship are tested by the evils of violence and addiction.

Description: On an Earth ravaged by climate change, and a disastrous attempt to reverse it, human-dolphin hybrids called Aquarians have built thriving reef colonies among the drowned cities of the coast. Now their world is under siege from an enemy above the waves whose invisible weapon leaves no survivors. Ocypode of Tillamook is an Atavism: half-human and half-Aquarian, marooned in the genetic limbo between species. Only he knows why the colonies north and south of Tillamook Reef have been destroyed, literally turned to stone. Ocypode knows that Tillamook will be targeted next, but sharing the reason might prove as deadly to Aquarius as the Medusa plague itself.

Ocypode and his Aquarian and human comrades flee into the open ocean to escape Medusa, until another Aquarian’s treachery leaves them at the mercy of a killer storm. Ocypode must pass through the Electric Forest, where he faces nightmarish creatures and a legendary sea witch who becomes an ally. Finally, he must confront the cyber-ghost of the human he most despises: Peter Cydon, the Great Father who bioengineered the mutagenic virus that gave birth to the Aquarian species. These unlikely allies provide the only chance to stop the Redeemers, rogue scientists who are determined to resurrect the land by slaughtering the sea. Even these allies will not be enough, and Ocypode must decide whom to trust with a secret as lethal as any plague.

Resistance Music by T.A. Barnes

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by AmandaKerr (agent): We are offering 10 epub copies of Resistance Music. The author is hoping to get more reviews for this contemporary women's fiction/suspense novel.

Description: They say she can trust them in a fight for her life. The truth is she can’t trust anyone….

An American rock star is murdered in northern Spain, drawing her sister into the underground of radical Basque Separatists and those who hunt them. With no idea of her family’s ties to the feared ETA, Sancia is thrown unwilling into a deadly baptism by knowledge, the price of which is death. Betrayed by those she trusts, sought by a cause she can’t support and stalked by those sworn to have what she holds at any cost, Sancia makes her stand alone. Some things, she learns, are truly worth one’s life.

From the halls of the cliff-top castle on the Cantabrian Sea to the remote villages of the Spanish Pyrenees, this is a story of marvelous covenants; of people willing to die for their cause, and others who commit the unspeakable to stop them. It’s a story of heroism and the single choices from which it is born, that sometimes make the world a better place.

….When the evening darkened and the breeze through the window grew chill, Sancia closed it and left the chamber. In her pocket was the key to the new lock on the ancient tunnels; in her heart, the fading presence of all that had been young and innocent in her life….

A Ruined Boy by Eric Bishop-Potter (Matador)

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

Offered by ericbishoppotter (author): This book does not contain vampires, zombies, witches, wizards, gremlins, dragons, demons, children with magic wands, werewolves, muscle-bound warriors with flaxen hair, castles, dungeons, enchanted forests, extra-terrestrials, time-travellers, robotics, school prom queens, terminally ill teenagers, or cats of any description.
There goes my dream of a million sales.

Description: Abandoned as a baby, Sonny Bunn at age 12, psychopathic, precocious and demanding, is reunited with his hated mother, Honey, a coarse, bloated, sexually rampant nightclub entertainer (she impersonates male movie stars: Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, George Raft, etc.), whose lover, Thomas Calvino, is a hit-man and procurer of boys for crime lord Sylvano Mastrioni.
Calvino, seeing Sonny as suitable fodder for Mastrioni, inveigles Honey into handing the boy over to him.
Sonny, who himself is a manipulative schemer, horrified by his mother's vulgarity, decides a life of concubinage to be preferable to the maternal bosom and moves in with Mastrioni, who, dazzled by Sonny's beauty falls hopelessly and slavishly in love with him, much to the concern of the Mob.
The story jumps nine years, and Sonny, now in a state of permanent vendetta with Honey, sets in motion a plan that will wreck her career.
But Honey and Calvino have a plan of their own - a devilishly clever one - which, if successful, will rid them of Sonny and Mastrioni both and make them plenty money. But plans, even the best laid ones, have a nasty habit of going horribly and horrifically wrong....

Set against a backdrop of Hollywood and the Mafia in the fifties, "A Ruined Boy" is a bawdy, blackly comic novel brimming with memorable characters - Harry Finn, a cynical, self-pitying stand-up comic unable to come to terms with his wife's horrific suicide; Tiny Templar, a diminutive movie star steeped in depravity; Henry and Jessica Lansbury, pillars of the community with a shocking secret; Jake Blickerman, a tyrannical movie magnate obsessed with the fear of scandal; Milburn Poole, a backstreet lawyer dreaming of success.

"A finely written, superbly plotted book that will have you hooked from horrific start to gruesome finish. The dialogue is often hilariously droll. Marvellous." - Anna Cheska.

The Fragrance of Crushed Violets: Forgiving the Inexcusable by Cathy Bryant (WordVessel Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by catbry1 (author): This giveaway is provided by the author, Cathy Bryant.

Description: A Bible study about forgiveness...

What do we do when a loved one, boss, co-worker, friend, or enemy seem determined to bring us down through an attack? How do we handle it when their assault is personal, public, deep, unjust, unfair, and unfounded? Take it one step further. How do we deal with meaningless acts of destruction and death, say in something similar to the Twin Towers incident or a school shooting, especially when the offender shows no remorse? Do we file it in our brains and rack it up to "one more senseless act" and chance to think that God somehow messed up?

In short, how do we move past the hurt and anger to a place of forgiveness?

Join us as we examine relevant scriptures and come away with a scriptural understanding of:
• what forgiveness is and what it isn't
• God's role in the process of forgiveness
• what Jesus accomplished at the cross for each of us
• our mandate to forgive as we've been forgiven
• what gets in the way of forgiving others
• how to truly forgive

The Story of My Heart by Richard Jefferies (Torrey House Press)

Offered by ConsortiumLibrary: Enter to win an advance review copy of a new book from Torrey House Press!

Description: While browsing a Stonington, Maine, bookstore, Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams discovered a rare copy of an exquisite autobiography by nineteenth-century British nature writer Richard Jefferies, who develops his understanding of a "soul-life" while wandering the wild countryside of Wiltshire, England. Brooke and Terry, like John Fowles, Henry Miller, and Rachel Carson before, were inspired by the prescient words of this visionary writer, who describes ineffable feelings of being at one with nature. In an introduction and essays set alongside Jefferies' writing, the Williams share their personal pilgrimage to Wiltshire to understand this man of "cosmic consciousness" and how their exploration of Jefferies deepened their own relationship while illuminating dilemmas of modernity, the intrinsic need for wildness, and what it means to be human in the twenty-first century.

Polly and the One and Only World by Don Bredes (Green Writers Press)

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

Offered by WileySaichek: Publicist for Don Bredes. SaichekPublicity@gmail.com

Description: Set in a much-diminished America called the Christian Protectorates, a poor country ravaged by coastal flooding, drought, and catastrophic social upheaval, the novel features 15-year-old Polly Lightfoot, a maiden witch of deep heritage and tender ability in the craft. When her identity is exposed, Polly is forced to flee New Florida, where she has taken refuge from a military purge of the country's infidels, pagans, and followers of false creeds. With the help of her steadfast familiar, a raven named Balthazar, and her brave teenage companion, Leon, Polly undertakes a harrowing journey from the troubled south to the wild north to rejoin her people in Vermont and save her ancient craft from obliteration.

Polly and the One and Only World presents a frighteningly vivid depiction of our stricken land in the stifling grip of fundamentalists and suffering the grim consequences of climate calamity. Yet the story's dire vision will inspire readers of every age to appreciate their own freedom and their capacity, today, to work for positive social and political change.

The Land Uncharted by Keely Brooke Keith (Edenbrooke Press)

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

Offered by keelykeith (author): This is my debut novel and I'm new to LibraryThing, so I thought I'd join the party with a giveaway! The Land Uncharted is written like a historical, set like a scifi, and includes a (clean) romance.

Description: Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land. Day and night, she rushes by horseback to treat the ill and injured, establishing a heroic reputation as the village’s new doctor.

Naval Aviator Connor Bradshaw is flying over the South Atlantic Ocean on a mission to secure any remaining sources of fresh water in a 2025 world torn apart by war. A malfunction activates his aircraft’s ejection system, parachuting his unconscious body to the shore of a hidden land.

Lydia risks her safety to help the injured outsider despite the shock of his mysterious arrival and the disastrous implications his presence could have for her peaceful society, which has gone undetected for seven generations.

Connor searches for a way to return to his squadron, but his fascination with life in the Land makes him protective of Lydia and her peaceful homeland. And while Lydia’s attraction to Connor stirs desires she never anticipated, it also pushes an unwanted admirer to stage a dangerous attempt to win her affection.

As Connor tries to keep the Land off the radar, he learns the biggest threat to Lydia lurks in her village. But when Lydia’s greatest passion and darkest fear collide, will she look to the past or the future to find the strength to survive?

Offered by Yang.Huang (author): My debut novel Living Treasures has received critical acclaim. Now I want to know what readers think. I am excited to free a free signed book. Please check it out and write me a review. Thank you so much for looking.

Description: A passionate quest for romance and justice
Bellwether Prize finalist
Living Treasures


What do a law student and a panda have in common? When Gu Bao falls in love with a handsome, young soldier only to be hunted by one-child policy enforcers, she finds out what it feels like to be an endangered species.

Set in China during the tumultuous Tiananmen Square protest in 1989, Bellwether Prize finalist Living Treasures portrays the crusade of Gu Bao, a girl who grows up under the Chinese government’s one-child policy. The Chinese government has enforced strict controls to keep the country from environmental destitution and poverty ever since Mao’s ban on family planning left China a legacy of 1.1 billion people, 20% of the population on earth.

Bao searches for her inner strength while exploring the Sichuan mountain landscape. She befriends a panda mother caught in a poacher’s snare, and an expectant young mother hiding from villainous one-child policy enforcers bent on giving compulsory abortions. All struggle against society to preserve the treasure of their little ones. Bao devises a daring plan that changes the lives of everyone around her. Will Bao earn a second chance to save a family from destruction? What price will Bao pay to prevent a full-term abortion and save a panda cub?

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (Washington Square Press)

Offered by RoeschLeisure: Mass market paperback discarded from library collection. A little battered but very readable copy.

Description: New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate—a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister—and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

My Sister’s Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, in My Sister’s Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

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

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): Winner will receive a signed copy promptly. Many thanks for your interest. NOTE: For funny stories and other special promotions, please follow Starbuck on Goodreads, Facebook or Twitter.

Description: *AUTOGRAPHED COPY* Rare opportunity to win a signed copy of an award-winning CULT CLASSIC of political incorrectness. Not for the easily offended, Red Meat was a silver-medalist in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (humor) and a bronze-medalist in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards (humor) before being acquired at auction and published by Marty Asher, legendary editor-in-chief of Knopf's Vintage and Anchor Books imprints. Quoted in Publisher's Weekly Daily, Asher said, "What appealed to me most about Starbuck's novel was how it managed to be universally offensive. Neither right-wingers, nor lefties, meat-eaters or vegetarians, CEOs or clerks could take any solace from this hilarious, outrageous satire. At such a politically correct moment in time as this, who could possibly resist publishing a book that pisses everybody off, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, eating habits or whatever?"

A Jab of Deep Urgency by E. Kristin Anderson (Finishing Line Press)

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

Offered by EKAnderson (author): The giveaway recipient will receive a copy of A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY from the limited first-printing, signed and personalized by the author.

Description: A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY is a collection of 30 poems crafted during Found Poetry Review’s Pulitzer Remix project in 2013. Mined from the text of Jennifer Egan’s novel, A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD, these poems were all created using the erasure method (also known as blackout or whiteout) on various pages of the original text, resulting in a brand new narrative.

Praise for A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY:

“See, it’s mine” is a line from one of E. Kristin Anderson’s delicious found poems. Her source text is a Jenniger Egan novel and Ms. Anderson has made from those splendid pages something uniquely hers and equally satisfying. Did I mention I love this collection? I do.
— Ron Koertge, award-winning novelist and author of The Ogre’s Wife and Indigo

With and through Egan's text, Anderson speaks in a vivid and original voice. It's a 'staggering metamorphosis' (a phrase in the book) from one fully realized butterfly to another.
— Jessy Randall, author if Injecting Dreams into Cows

Found poetry is a deceivingly challenging practice; working within a constrained vocabulary, poets must remake the text anew. In A Jab of Deep Urgency, Anderson carefully erases pieces of Egan’s text, leaving behind a dynamic, personal narrative made all the more remarkable because of the myriad voices represented in the original text. The poems, each remarkable in their own right, cohere into a perceptive commentary on the relationships people have with each other and the environments in which they live.
— Jenni B. Baker, editor-in-chief of The Found Poetry Review

Using the needle of poetry, Anderson extracts the emotive music in Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad like an expert phlebotomist. Spare, dramatic, lyrical, and revealing, the poems in A Jab of Deep Urgency are strange and playful portraits of the exposed inner life. Confident without seeming cold, Anderson’s poems are as unique as the novel they were inspired by.
— Ada Limón, author of Lucky Wreck and Sharks in the Rivers

Mindscapes: Ten Science Fiction and Speculative Fiction Short Stories [Audible Version] by Victor D. Lopez (Victor D. Lopez through ACX)

This is an audiobook.

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

Offered by VictorDLopez (author): PLEASE NOTE: This giveaway is for the AUDIOBOOK version of the book from AUDIBLE. A free code will be provided to the winner with which to download a copy of the book ($14.95 list price) free of charge from Audible.com. Although the audiobook version of this book is also sold through iTunes and Amazon, this giveaway is ONLY for the Audible version.

Description: (From Amazon)
This book is a compilation of 10 science fiction and speculative fiction short stories by the author from his two previous short story collections, Book of Dreams and Book of Dreams 2nd Edition, as well as two new stories written in 2013. Its scope extends from the innermost dimensions of the mind to the outer reaches of the universe, focusing from diverse perspectives on some common themes as to the meaning of life, the superlative strength and wrenching weakness of the human spirit, the power of love and the exquisite pain and ecstasy that flesh is heir to in its perpetual struggle between the duality of the human spirit that reflects both the divine and the profane.

The stories are difficult to classify and include hard science fiction, soft science fiction, mild horror, suspense, psychological fiction, dystopian fiction, dark fiction, space travel, alien contact, and metaphysical fiction. In very broad outline, the ten stories involve the following themes:

If necessity is the mother of invention, could humanity use present technology to find a way to propagate its seed when faced with the certainty of an extinction-level event within two years?

What really caused the catastrophic failure after the first full-scale test of the Large Hadron Collider? Motivated, ingenious terrorists are about to try their own field experiment to replicate the classified results of the test on a large scale using two suitcase nukes and a modified jetliner in an attack that will eradicate all life on earth, destroy our corner of the universe and, in time, give birth to a new addition to the multiverse.

If we could communicate with the other sentient, intelligent species with whom we share our planet, what vital lessons might we learn from them and they from us?

In a not too distant future in which all human beings on earth are connected and integrated into a single neural net, what price might be exacted for one wishing to opt out?

Egyptologists and historians have long debated the riddle of the Sphinx—its true origins, its too-small human head and the identity of the pharaoh it was intended to represent. What if the riddle could be revealed live, in prime time, to an attentive world-wide audience upon the excavation of a chamber buried stories beneath its right paw?

What price would you pay to revisit a crossroad in your life when you had made a terrible, life altering mistake? Would you give up an unfulfilled life for the chance of virtual happiness in a virtual reality?

Would you sacrifice everything if you could attain absolute knowledge? If so, could you live with the knowledge you attained?

It is said that no man is an island, but what if even the least among us is a god in his/her own right?

If an alien visitor offered you a lifetime of health and the gift of telepathy for a small service, would you be quick to accept?

If we purportedly use only a small fraction of our brain's capacity, what possible purpose does the apparently unused portion serve?

Above are some of the questions raised in this collection of short stories that explores the interrelationship between dreams and reality, the nature of reality itself, and the dangers attendant to the single-minded pursuit of wish fulfillment that all too often results in unexpected and unwanted consequences.

The author is an Associate Professor of Legal Studies at Hofstra University's Frank G. Zarb School of Business and has previously published seven non-fiction books through traditional publishers as well as several independently published books that include an intellectual property law book, two short story collections and a book of poetry. His business law and legal environment textbooks have been used in colleges and universities throughout the United States since 1993.
