The Fortuitous Meeting by Christopher Kastensmidt

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by ckastens (author): To make this giveaway as accessible as possible, I'll send out an e-mail to those selected with links to four different versions: EPUB, MOBI, PDF and PDF Large Text (for mobile reading).
I hope you enjoy it!

Description: Gerard van Oost and Oludara are destined to become two of the greatest heroes in Brazilian history, but first, this unlikely pair must meet far from their homelands, in the central plaza of Salvador, capital of the fledgling colony. Oludara, a slave, and Gerard, an outcast, must each outwit a legendary foe to overcome their pasts and forge a new future together.

Tired of the same old fantasy tropes? "The Fortuitous Meeting", a finalist for the Nebula Award in 2011, is unlike anything you've read before. It's a mixture of action, adventure, humor, magic, and South American folklore in the wilderness of sixteenth-century Brazil. Legendary characters like the one-legged prankster Sacy-Perey and the flaming serpent Botat come to life in these pages.

This is the story that started it all, the first in a series of adventures that can each be enjoyed in a single sitting.

Chinese Education in Singapore: An untold story of conflict and change by Zhixiong Zhang

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Zhixiong (author): I am giving away to increase reviews. Even short reviews would be appreciated!

Description: Strife. That's the Chinese word tattooed on the wrist of the raised fist.
The story about conflict in Singapore's Chinese community was always told from the viewpoint of the British colonizers. The perspective of a Chinese coolie was never written down. Until now. Set between the founding of Singapore and the shuttering of Nanyang University, this astonishing story is a colorful account of secret societies and their wars, of Sinitic languages and dialects, and of suppressions by a colonial government in a free port. Its pages are not crammed with historical facts and dates, but filled with the experiences of Chinese migrants over 200 years. It is an impression of their achievements and a witness to their weakness of character.
Join them on their roller-coaster ride into conflict.

Description: THE IDEALS OF A NATION.

Five hundred and fifty years before the war against Thrakoth, the land of Fiea is in chaos. Years of civil unrest have forced the burgeoning colonies into a state of open rebellion against their overlords in the Avelingian Empire. While the public remains bitterly divided, the Avelingian government initiates a crackdown on the growing desire for civil liberties, culminating in the arrest and impending execution of Amelhir Vilistani.

The sudden condemnation of the beloved scientist inflames the growing resistance to Imperial rule. In the city of Olmonin, rebel politicians gather in a secret assembly to keep the growing conflict from spiraling out of control. Yet as the clock ticks down to Amelhir’s doom, the resistance will soon find that the only way to save their people will be to set off a chain of events that lead to the sundering of an empire… and the rise of a new republic.

Yesterday's Thief: An Eric Beckman Paranormal Sci-Fi Thriller by Al Macy

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by TromboneAl (author): Good luck!

***** 4.7 Stars on Amazon!

I've received so many great reviews from Library Thing contest winners. Thanks!

Description: It's the year 2020, and Eric Beckman is a mind-reading detective.

Although he reads only the conscious thoughts of the people he interviews, it usually gives him enough of an edge to overcome his inexperience as a PI. But mind reading is hell on relationships. Trusting comes hard when you know what people are really thinking.

The case of his life lands in his lap when a beautiful woman materializes during a televised baseball game. She floats in midair, then drops to the ground, comatose.

Beckman is at her bedside when she wakes up. From the moment she opens her eyes, she has him under her spell. He vows to figure out where—or when—she came from, even if it kills him.

The stakes increase when she disappears without a trace. Worse, she holds the key to a worldwide energy catastrophe. If Beckman can't find her and unlock her secrets, economies will collapse, and the world will spiral down into chaos.

Tearing Down The Statues by Brian Bennudriti (Grailrunner Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by bennudriti (publisher): Power plays, intriguing characters, dialogue that pops and skull-slamming action. This one has it all!

We're in consideration for the Reader's Favorite award for best sci-fi published in 2015. Wish us luck and drop some friendly reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

Description: She left tripwires in the stories we tell. This is what happens when you trigger one!

Misling is a Recorder, having perfect recall and expected to help build a seamless record of history. That’s what the Salt Mystic taught us two thousand years ago when she came stumbling from the flats with her visions. Unfortunately he’s probably the worst Recorder ever. So when he meets a joker with an incredible secret, the two of them are soon on the run from swarming lunatics and towering assault troops in the heart of a city under siege.

As it has for three generations, the horrible Talgo family is the spark of this swelling world war; and their wily generals and scheming counselors clash their fleets in battles of shrieking steel-entrained tornados, cannonballs of lightning, and tanks the size of cities. But it’s the joker’s secret that is the most powerful weapon of all…a trigger set by the Salt Mystic herself in myth, to save the world from itself.

Description: Joseph Paladin is a national hero everyone thought they knew - a former major in the United States Army, retired colonel in the Maine Republic Militia, and considered one of the key founders of the New American Confederation. His legendary odyssey to reunify a fractured nation in the aftermath of the great flu pandemic is a household story. In his long awaited memoir, Paladin shares untold stories of his past, including a shocking secret that he's harbored for decades. Is he really someone who should be held in such high esteem?

"This is an intriguing new slant on apocalyptic fiction, and fans who are tempted to snub it because it breaks away from genre expectations should set aside their concerns; they’re likely to enjoy it far more than they expect." -Publisher's Weekly

"The author has done a wonderful job creating a suspenseful tale of a post-pandemic-apocalyptic world. His characters are well drawn and authentic and define the desperate world in which they live. I highly recommend this book." -Windy City Reviews

Warped Justice by Kevin Schwartz (Kevin Schwartz)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Kevinschwartz (author): Win one of 100 copies of my first book, recently published, called Warped Justice, a suspenseful thriller.

Description: A suspenseful thriller that takes you from a small Vermont town to the beaches of the Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands. Loyalty and retribution are at the heart of this richly, woven tale.

The law will protect you. Until it doesn't.

When Peter Garrison's failed defense of a client leads to a retribution plot against him, he's forced to confront a nemesis intent on destroying him. Jason Felding seeks payback after his teenage brother winds up sodomized and mentally scarred during an unfair incarceration. He targets the restaurant owner who put his sibling behind bars and the lawyer who couldn't get a simple underage drinking case dropped. Obsessed with justice, Jason murders the snitch and, in an elaborate ruse, frames Peter as the killer.

Peter finds himself the prime suspect in a murder that rocks the small town of Quincy, Vermont, a cruel irony since he left his firm frustrated that guilty clients sometimes escape punishment, while innocent ones are convicted. With the help of a crafty private investigator, Peter vows to solve the crime and save his reputation. But as Peter closes in on the truth, both he and his new girlfriend may be next on Jason’s hit list.

Fossilized Gods by J Simon (J Simon)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by Eccentrexity (author): Reviews are not required, but are very much appreciated!

Description: Being a god isn't easy. Oh sure, you can crash the super-exclusive club at that hot new pyramid, but one little drought and your worshippers are suddenly burying you neck-deep in scorpions. Samantha never expected to wake from her long sleep. When she came to, mortals were riding around inside big metal cows, shooting invisible info-rays across the sky, and doing amazing things with cake frosting. They took cell phones for granted and thought nothing of a university where Physics stood between Inhumanities and Necro. Now, deep in the great museum, other gods have begun to wake—old gods, terrible gods, gods that would drown the world in suffering. If Samantha can just wake the dead, outwit a huge disembodied brain, and evade the Great Hunter who's after her head, maybe she can do something about it!

The Refugees from Daffodil Cottage by Ian Rudd

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by M.Rudd (publisher): This is a new edition of my late fathers' only published work. While I love the original, the presentation of the story suffered from having been released by a vanity publisher. There were several inexcusable errors, in fact it didn't seem like the manuscript had been proof read by the publisher before going to press! I have done my best to correct these mistakes and have expanded a few minor details that I know my father regretted not doing himself.

I am offering 100 PDF copies of the book in return for honest reviews on Kindle.

Thank you.

Description: After the old lady who owns Daffodil Cottage is taken into an old people's home and developers move in; the birds who live in her garden have to seek new homes, away from the bulldozers and cranes.

Led by Justin the Blackbird, they undertake an arduous journey to find a new home at Tumble Bank Mill; an old watermill converted into a museum. Here they meet White Wings the Barn Owl - leader of a growing band of refugees from the encroachment of civilisation.

A severe winter brings new hardships for Justin and his friends; Rusty Robin, Albert and Elizabeth Sparrow, Peter and Molly Blue Tit and Ronnie and Queenie Starling. Ever mounting human activity, competition from a neighbouring flock of tree sparrows and the fear of feral cats near the mill only add to the pressures the friend must face if they are to survive.

A powerful tale which highlights the harmful effects of human interference on the countryside and the creatures that call it home.

Pendulum Pet by Bori Praper

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RayKosmick (author): I'm offering free copies (in mobi and epub formats) of my recently-published novel Pendulum Pet to potential reviewers. It is a satire / humourous novel with elements of sci-fi / fantasy.

Please note that this novel is adult, poignant satire. As such it contains explicit language, sex scenes, politically incorrect depictions, and may be offensive to the more irritable readers. Even though the work is part of a series, the story is self-contained and can be read independently of the other Cynicism Management Series novels.

Honest reviews on Amazon (as well as anywhere else) would mean the world to me.

Cheers!

Description: Pendulum Pet is a romp through the vicissitudes of a gregarious advanced culture with too much time, information and technology on its hands. Paranoia is placed and misplaced, the devious succeed through manipulations of those who gaze in wonder at the mundane like chimps on acid, or fail when the truly bizarre and unthinkable inadvertently stand in their way.

Civilizations clash, as they will, when Metaore, a transnational mining corporation headed by CEO Budd Dimples, purchases a field behind Boris and Beeba’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Tavern, a cult concert venue and meeting place of an eclectic collection of feckless artists, in order to undertake a remarkable experiment: drilling a geopunctural borehole to heal the Earth. Budd has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and taken a sudden turn toward esoteric wisdom, much encouraged by his healer and sex therapist Ashtara Wolf.

Bogomyr Yadvig, one of the more outré of the regulars, lives in a tent nearby with Rex the tavern hound – his idea of communing with Greek Cynics in preparation for an upcoming performance piece. He has cause to lose sleep and accumulate suspicion that the corporation has nefarious unstated ends in mind, particularly when he has his Roswell moment, if that is indeed what it is.

The corporate endeavour comes to a sudden halt when their drill runs into an impenetrable barrier, leading to mutually unfortunate and potentially combustible discoveries, along with stunning truths about parallel evolution and devolution. Yes, the world of the techno-information age has gone mad and survival may very well depend on the whims of a pendulum pet.

Please note that this novel is adult, poignant satire. As such it contains explicit language, sex scenes, politically incorrect depictions, and may be offensive to the more irritable readers. Even though the work is part of a series, the story is self-contained and can be read independently of the other Cynicism Management Series novels.

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): It was a fun book to write, so hopefully a fun book to read...

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.

Description: The picturesque college town of Thornton, Vermont is the perfect place to open an inn. Or so Nan Grady thinks until a late summer storm drops a tree branch through her roof and local contractor Joss Fuller into her path.

Romance has been the last thing on her career-oriented mind, but Nan can’t deny the attraction between them. Nor can she deny the history between Joss and her most important guest: a sophisticated Manhattan academic.

And then there is the mysterious vandal targeting her home and livelihood.

As summer fades to autumn and Joss becomes a fixture around the Damselfly Inn, Nan navigates the joys and complications of life in her new home town. But when the vandalism becomes increasingly upsetting, threatening Nan and her guests, as well as her budding relationship with Joss, Nan questions her place in the town, at the inn, and in Joss’s heart.

Julie C. Gardner, author of Letters for Scarlet (Velvet Morning Press) calls the romance between Nan and Joss “slow burning and delicious.” Andra Watkins, NYT Bestselling author of Not Without My Father and To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey Of Meriwether Lewis(Word Hermit Press) calls Damselfly Inn “a perfect beach read, a best pick for a vacation or a delicious page-turner to wile away any afternoon.”

Forest - Love, Loss, Legend 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): Mystery, romance, paranormal - FOREST has it all as well as a subplot about important environmental issues. Here's what one reviewer said:

★★★★ A compelling story layered over with a much stranger story of forest myths. FOREST...neatly encapsulates the battleground of humanity’s greed for natural resources versus the cost to the environment... studded with evocative detail and under laid by a very real question – definitely worth the read.
- Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews

Description: Matthew and Raminder are young, idealistic and in love.

As soon as they can they plan to leave behind the small town and small minds of Pitt Landing. They will embrace life and experience the world, maybe even change it.

Man plans, God laughs. Raminder’s father has a stroke and her commitment to her family means she must postpone her plans and stay in Pitt Lake. It’s just the opposite for Matt. A family tragedy leaves irreconcilable differences between him and his father and forces him to leave.

They promise to reunite, but life happens.

Twelve years later, Matt is an acclaimed war correspondent. He’s seen it all and it’s left him with post-traumatic stress, a gastric ulcer, and an enlarged liver. He’s never been back to Pitt Landing though the memory of Raminder and their love has more than once kept him sane.

He’s at his desk in the newsroom, recuperating from his last assignment and current hangover and reading a letter from his father, the first contact they’ve had in over a decade. It talks about a legendary lost gold mine, a map leading to it, and proof in a safety deposit box back in Pitt Lake. He’s sent it to Matt in case something happens to him and cautions his son to keep it a secret.

Matt is about to dismiss the letter when the telephone rings. It’s Raminder telling him his father has disappeared somewhere in the wilderness that surrounds Pitt Lake.

Lost gold, lost love and lost hope compels Matt to return home. Will he find any of these, or does something else await him?

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!

Through the boarding house window, Julia overhears an argument between Rose and her wealthy father over Rose's illegitimate pregnancy. He drops Rose off, saying he will return in one year, that she must be either single and childless or respectably married. Though from completely different backgrounds, Julia and Rose become fast friends, facing lessons of survival and redemption as their fates become irrevocably entwined.

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by JennieGoutet (author): Clean, modern romance set in France. Thanks for requesting!

Description: Is there such a thing as Prince Charming?

Chastity didn’t take a teaching job in France to find hers, but a woman can dream, n’est ce pas?

If the father of one of her students—the Viscount Charles Jean Anne Monorie de Brase—is the best local example of princes, Charming or Otherwise, Chastity is ready to put aside any thought of falling in love again.

As much as she would prefer him to keep his distance, it seems there is no avoiding each other. With the ongoing pressure of a repentant ex-boyfriend, a nefarious drug dealer, and an art heist that spans the decades, Chastity and the viscount are thrown together by circumstances she would soon rather forget.

As the intimacy between Charles and Chastity deepens, they must decide if their love is enough to bridge the gap between their disparate worlds, and if happily ever after can exist outside of fairy tales.

Or Not To Be by Cary Smith

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

Description: Blonde Swedish born DI Inga Larsson stood in the barn that chilly morning looking down at the body of the poor young wretch. It may very well now be a world of phones that are often too smart, of Beats headphones and Android mobiles, of kissy-kissy greetings and social media the great British public get fussed about. But in some aspects life has not changed one iota. Being dead is still as dead as it has always been.

Two squabbling factions quickly come to the attention of Larsson and her team – not the usual moody gatherings of hooded hoodlums or scurrilous drug gangs intent on causing mayhem and ruining lives. These two outfits are Lincoln’s amateur dramatic groups both full to overflowing with a whole array of odd balls, antagonistic miscreants and eccentrics who it appears refuse to see eye to eye.

As Larsson digs deeper she comes face to face with the twin peaks of last century homophobic and racist attitudes with unadulterated snootiness served as a side dish. Then right out of the blue up pops one of the am-dram crew to hit the national news headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Has this innocent poor young woman become unwittingly embroiled in their shoddy dispute in the name of art and paid the price with her life?

As Shakespeare put it himself –

Murder most foul, as in the best it is; But this most foul, strange, and unnatural.

Lincolnshire Murder Mystery No 5

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

Offered by robinhil (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: As a child John Kerrison was so obsessed with becoming a drummer that he made a snare drum from a biscuit tin and wallpaper. Tutored by the legendary Jim Marshall he turned professional at the age of thirteen.

“I quit school at fifteen… The headmaster said choose academia or Rock & Roll… I chose Rock & Roll.”

John’s drum kit survived being loaned to Keith Moon and he played on the same bill as The Rolling Stones. As a scooter riding Mod he experienced the swinging 1960s firsthand and contributed to the deafening arrival of Hard Rock, performing in bands alongside future Deep Purple legends Rod Evans, Nick Simper, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover.

In 1971 a traumatic spinal cord injury abruptly ended John’s promising career as a drummer. Eventually he surfaced from the depths of despair and found an innovative way of regaining his ability to play a full drum kit.

Managing Bubbie by Russel Lazega (CreateSpace)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by rlazega (author): Enter for your chance to win 1 of 20 copies of Managing Bubbie -- the award winning memoir on its way to becoming a movie and an incoming audiobook starring Tony Award Winner Linda Lavin. Two randomly selected winners will also receive a signed print copy.

Description: Her devoted family only wants the best for their Bubbie. Mostly they want to ensure that their matriarch’s twilight years are spent in comfort, safety, and serenity. But how do you manage an aging, immutably stubborn Holocaust survivor who has risen above the squalor of Poland’s ghettos; fled across the war-torn German wilderness; and survived the winter-ravaged Pyrenees alone on foot with three children? You probably don't.

Managing Bubbie is the heartrending, hilarious family memoir by Russel Lazega that recounts the frequently hectic, ever-exhausting trials of one Jewish family in Miami Beach as they try to oversee the care of the elderly, unmanageable Lea Lazega. As they scramble for an acceptable assisted living facility and struggle to get her medication in line, they discover the difficulties of controlling a woman who time and again eluded catastrophe by refusing to be told what to do.

A tapestry of an American family in the 1980s, Managing Bubbie also revisits the Holocaust period to mine the love, hope, and humor that emerged from the deepest despair. Anyone who savors a soft heart with a sharp funny bone will laugh, cry, and commiserate with the confounded family who must manage their beloved, impossible Bubbie.

His water nymph’s playful side excites him like no woman he’s ever met, and he looks for any excuse to be with her. But a rancher’s work is never done, and Jonathan must choose between his family and Evie—a woman who might have already moved on to someone else.

The Bingo Queens of Oneida by Mike Hoeft (Wisconsin Historical Society Press)

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

Offered by whspress (publisher): “Mike Hoeft has written a beautiful portrait of contemporary Wisconsin Oneida Indian life and its vitality. It is a tribute to the women of the Oneidas—particularly the lives of two determined Oneida women, Alma Webster and Sandy (Ninham) Brehmer—who helped lead the cultural, economic, and political resurgence in this Wisconsin community over the past four decades.” -Laurence M. Hauptman, SUNY Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History and coeditor of A Nation within a Nation: Voices of the Oneidas in Wisconsin

“The hand that rocked the cradle found a new weapon in the war on poverty. This is the story of strong American Indian women who helped rebuild a great Indian nation. The Oneida bingo moms inspired me!” -Melanie Benjamin, chief executive, Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota, and cofounder of Women Empowering Women for Indian Nations

“This book is far more ambitious than its modest title suggests. The two bingo moms, Sandy and Alma, are certainly the heart of the book. But the author places those moms in much broader contexts—historical, cultural, and social. He also liberally interweaves personal stories of Oneida people. The overall effect is to make the book more of a conversation, less of a lecture." -Arlinda Locklear, attorney and longtime special counsel for the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin

“Rooted in extensive research and key interviews, The Bingo Queens of Oneida provides a unique picture of an economic accomplishment of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin brought about by the ingenuity, doughty work, and remarkable insight of two Oneida mothers. Hoeft admirably places their work in its cultural and historical context. This volume is an indispensable addition to our understanding of a dynamic nation.” -David R. Wrone, history professor emeritus, University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point

"Hoeft, a seasoned Green Bay journalist,has crafted a volume to help readers understand the nuances of the controversial terrain of Indian gaming. The clean, straightforward writing is supported by meticulous research and abundant interviews. The result is a rare glimpse into contemporary American indian life." -Kathleen Ratteree, Annals of Iowa

Description: Before Indian casinos, a few enterprising tribes got their start in gambling by opening bingo parlors. A group of women on the Oneida Indian Reservation just outside Green Bay, Wisconsin, introduced bingo in 1976 simply to pay a few bills. Bingo not only paid the light bill at the struggling civic center but was soon financing vital health and housing services for tribal elderly and poor.

"The Bingo Queens of Oneida: How Two Moms Started Tribal Gaming in Wisconsin" tells the story through the eyes of Sandra Ninham and Alma Webster, the Oneida women who had the idea for a bingo operation run by the tribe. Bingo became the tribe's first moneymaker on a reservation where about half the population was living in poverty.

Author Mike Hoeft traces the historic struggles of the Oneida from their alliance with America during the Revolutionary War to their journey to Wisconsin and details the lives of inspirational tribal members who worked alongside Ninham and Webster. The Bingo Queens of Oneida is the story of not only how one game helped revive the Oneida economy but also how one game strengthened the Oneida community.

Reality Inspector by John Caris (Westgate House)

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

Offered by JCaris (author): As the Indy author of the novel, I have some copies of the first edition. I wish to share my work with other readers.
The book contains 24 chess diagrams and an appendix with 17 master chess games.

Description: An early, perhaps the first, computer-hacking novel.
A world championship chess match is the backdrop for this intriguing mystery story. The main computer of the Federal Reserve is being tampered with by a sinister power, and the results could wreak havoc with the fiscal policy, causing the U.S. economy to fragment into pieces. Actual chess games are used, and they act as launching pads for journeys into strange and challenging worlds.
The mind has the power to project itself and to manipulate its environment. It has the power to shape external reality according to its inner reality. And when powerful minds become engaged in combat, a mighty and fierce struggle ensues.
The outcome of a chess game can be explained in several ways: chance blunders on one side or sharp playing on the other side. Or some kind of mind power influencing the players. It is a difficult idea to accept.

Little Hawk and the Lone Wolf by Raymond C Kaquatosh (Wisconsin Historical Society Press)

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

Offered by whspress (publisher): "Little Hawk" was born Raymond Kaquatosh in 1924 on Wisconsin's Menominee Reservation. The son of a medicine woman, Ray spent his Depression-era boyhood immersed in the beauty of the natural world and the traditions of his tribe and his family.

After his father's death, eight-year-old Ray was sent to an Indian boarding school in Keshena. There he experienced isolation and despair, but also comfort and kindness. Upon his return home, Ray remained a lonely boy in a full house until he met and befriended a lone timber wolf. The unusual bond they formed would last through both their lifetimes. As Ray grew into a young man, he left the reservation more frequently. Yet whenever he returned--from school and work, from service in the Marines, and finally from postwar Wausau with his future wife--the wolf waited.

In this rare first-person narrative of a Menominee Indian's coming of age, Raymond Kaquatosh shares a story that is wise and irreverent, often funny, and in the end, deeply moving.

A new cover is being created for this book, so I'm giving away copies that are from the current print run.
Please do post reviews on your blog, Amazon, B&N or Google Books...wherever you read!

Description: NEIL GAIMAN meets GILLIAN FLYNN'S GONE GIRL in a literary suspense novel ranked alongside Pulitzer Prize greats William Styron and Horton Foote.
WINNER OF TWO NATIONAL AWARDS
Ian McCabe works some of Australia's roughest country culling wild kangaroos. When he discovers two men robbing a sacred Aboriginal site, Ian's attempt to catch the thieves costs him his life.
His best friend is Gabriel Branch, a biracial Australian Aborigine raised by a white family. For forty‑five years Gabe lives in Townsville, a city on the Queensland coast. His only effort to contact his biological family is a failed attempt to view his adoption records, files that were destroyed decades ago.
Dana Pukatja, the head of an artifact smuggling ring, knows the many tricks of a Pitjantjatjara shaman. He uses his knowledge to raid sacred sites and sells the artifacts for cash, the modern equivalent of power.
After Ian disappears, Gabe follows his friend into the outback. A lifetime has passed since he was removed from his family. Everything about the red desert seems alien including the message stick, the artifact that is his only clue.
Using the traditional methods of a karadji, or ritual executioner, Dana stalks Gabe through the outback. Gabe rejects Dana's tricks, yet his belly shrinks whenever the shaman is near. His carefully constructed psychological defenses crumble. The sorcerer's own tricks and a totem animal are Gabe's only weapons.
Message Stick provides a panoramic look at Australia, its land, and the racially based social issues that continue to affect its society. The novel was supported by The Jerome Foundation, the New York Mills Cultural Center, and Cornucopia Arts Center.
Dreamtime tales, with their beautiful, spare styles and eternal lessons, are woven throughout the novel.
"Ms. Cunningham shows an Australia beautiful and brutal. You know it isn't going to be a gentle ride but you're still not expecting to be kicked out of your seat onto the desert floor, rolling to a stop in the sharp-as-glass spinifex. Don't be surprised when you want to put it down but can't." - Garrison Somers, Editor-in-Chief, The Blotter literary magazine

Cajun Waltz by Robert H. Patton (St. Martin's Press)

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

Offered by stmartins (publisher): 5 advance reader's copies of CAJUN WALTZ from St. Martin's Press

Description: The lyrics of a Cajun waltz may be dark as midnight with heartache and trouble, but still the music swings. The same goes for what happens after a shifty musician and a lonely shopgirl let destiny sweep them into an ill-suited marriage in swampy southwest Louisiana on the eve of the Depression.
Love doesn’t much figure between Richie Bainard and Esther Block. They build a business together while dreaming opposite dreams of fulfillment. But like a gumbo simmering with peppers and spice, desires finally come to a boil.
Three generations of the volatile clan grapple with the region’s economic struggles and racial tensions. The Bainard children, twins Bonnie and R.J. and their half-brother, Seth, pursue separate cravings for money, sex, and religion. The chase in each case runs off the rails thanks to an ex-marine with a soft heart and a brutish devotion, a dazzling young stepmother of mixed race and mixed motives, and a high school tart who proves tougher and truer than all of them. Ultimately it takes the mass devastation of Hurricane Audrey in 1957 to cleanse the reckless passions. The aftermath is painful but pure, like an old blues song that puts tears in your eyes while you dance.

Rum Luck by Ryan Aldred (Five Star)

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

Offered by Ryan_Aldred (author): Enter now for your last chance to win a signed review copy of RUM LUCK - one of 50 that will ever be printed - and a postcard from author Ryan Aldred.

Reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailer sites are particularly appreciated, but by no means required.

Description: Sand. Monkeys. Murder.

Ben Cooper was supposed to be on his honeymoon, not waking up in a Costa Rican prison with no memory of the night before.

Then again, Ben never thought he would catch his fiancée with some clown—literally. Or that his friend Miguel would drag him to the surf paradise of Tamarindo.

But surely his friend and lawyer Victoria didn’t need to fly down from Toronto. After all, the police would let him go once he sobered up and paid his fine. Right?
Except for the little matter of a murder. And Ben’s buying a beachside bar from the victim hours before the man’s death.

With foreclosure looming and death threats piling up on the rum-soaked bar, Ben and his friends must turn to the wild idea that got them into this mess—building a business around those who’ve always wanted to run their own bar on a beach somewhere, even for just a week.
But to survive, they’ll need every skill at their disposal — including those they’d rather forget they have.

Rum Luck was a finalist for an Arthur Ellis award from the Crime Writers of Canada, and is the first book in the Bar on a Beach Mystery series.

“The author keeps his tale popping with ample subplots... a good deal of humor... bolstered by a tropical setting and the added pressure of trying to sustain a business.”

- Kirkus Reviews

“Ryan Aldred has crafted a clever fast-moving mystery with a marvelous setting that is alternately charming, funny, and deadly serious.”

The Lively Place by Stephen Kendrick (Beacon Press)

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

Offered by jetangen4571: Got it for free, enjoyed it, no room in bookcases.
Let me start by saying that this is not a quick read. Neither is it a boring one. It is a deposition on the growth of a movement in landscape design for cemeteries, parks, and other public green spaces, while simultaneously delving into the changes through time of tombstones and mausoleums. And the whole of the piece is woven through with anecdotes of a multitude of people who achieved fame either before or after their internment here. The format is based upon the seasons, and an epilogue which provides directions to persons of particular note (or their marker). My only disappointment is that there are no photographs other than the cover, but I truly enjoyed reading this book.
I did receive this copy through a giveaway.

Description: When Mount Auburn Cemetery was founded, in 1831, it revolutionized the way Americans mourned the dead by offering a peaceful space for contemplation. This cemetery, located not far from Harvard University, was also a place that reflected and instilled an imperative to preserve and protect nature in a rapidly industrializing culture—lessons that would influence the creation of Central Park, the cemetery at Gettysburg, and the National Parks system. Even today this urban wildlife habitat and nationally recognized hotspot for migratory songbirds continues to connect visitors with nature and serves as a model for sustainable landscape practices. Beyond Mount Auburn’s prescient focus on conservation, it also reflects the impact of Transcendentalism and the progressive spirit in American life seen in advances in science, art, and religion and in social reform movements. In The Lively Place, Stephen Kendrick celebrates this vital piece of our nation’s history, as he tells the story of Mount Auburn’s founding, its legacy, and the many influential Americans interred there, from religious leaders to abolitionists, poets, and reformers.

The Squad Room by John and Nivakoff, Robert Cutter (Beaufort Books)

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

Offered by jetangen4571: Wish I had enough shelves to hoard, but y'all benefit from my lack. This book is an ARC that I won here at LT and will be published in print on May 23, 2016.
This may be NYPD, but the Thin Blue Line has counterparts in every city, and share in the good and bad aspects of each other, as well as The Job. This book blends the problems of seeing so much of the bad side of (in)humanity with the need to keep on keeping on in the face of another brutal killer. See publisher's blurb for clues to the plot, no recap or spoiler here. Gripping and sometimes a bit too close to reality (possible triggers).
This book was provided by the author or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of LibraryThing Giveaways.

Description: It’s New York City, modern day, and things aren’t quite the way they used to be. The Squad Room follows Detective William “Bill” Morrison, a man haunted by his own demons. His son is dead, gunned down in the line of duty, leaving Bill a haunted shell. Morose, a borderline alcoholic, he finds a second family among the members of his task force, the only men and women as committed to the brotherhood as he is. And with his marriage in shambles, solace comes in the arms of a dream girl, the tortured, but empathetic and caring Claudia.

A serial killer is terrorizing New York City, targeting young, helpless women. Morrison and his team are racing against time to identify and bring justice to the murderer. Meanwhile, the task force runs up against villains inside the system: a Chief and a Captain who got where they are by political maneuvering, rather than skill and merit.

Here, the men and women of the badge form tight bonds that can never be understood by outsiders. This is their story, born from the true life experience of two actual police chiefs. The Squad Room gives a genuine insider’s view of a detective squad room in the NYPD.

Haunted Lakes & Haunted Lakes II by Frederick Stonehouse (Partners Pub Group)

Offered by jetangen4571: There are actually 2 books in this giveaway: Haunted Lakes, and a signed copy of Haunted Lakes II.
Won these in a museum giveaway and need to share because of bookshelf constraints. They are perfect for the museum addict and/or Great Lakes aficionado.
Interesting and entertaining compilation of photos and research results regarding lore of the Great Lakes. This book is a staple in the gift shop of the Historical Society of Duluth, Mn, as well as other museum gift shops all along the coasts of lakes Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior. The stories are presented as they were researched, not just hauntings and curses, but superstitions and visual misinterpretations as well. Well worth the read!

Description: This book has delighted - and sent chills up the spines of thousands of readers! Haunted Lakes tells of possessed lighthouses and tragedies that have kept troubled souls walking the corridors and beaches, ghostly captains signaling their home port from vessels long gone and Sea Monsters that appear before the most trusted sailors of the Great Lakes. Frederick Stonehouse has collected these odd and ghostly accounts over many years of Great Lakes research and this book is a complete departure from his serious history books.

Schizo: Hidden in Plain Sight by Ilene B. Benator (Waldorf Publishing)

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

Offered by I.B.Benator (author): Enter for a chance to win ONE SIGNED COPY of my book SCHIZO: HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT by Ilene B. Benator. The book is to be released in September of 2016. I will include as a BONUS, a high quality Schizo MICROFIBER CLOTH and Schizo BOOKMARK.

Description: In the same vein as Robin Cook and Michael Palmer, Dr. Ilene B. Benator crafts a terrifying medical thriller that is sure to excite.

An ambitious future surgeon on his psychiatry rotation is assigned a patient who reveals to him information about an organized plot to control the population. His pursuit of the truth leads him to become a psychiatric patient in the same facility.

Dan Greenberg was a promising medical student who was derailed by Catherine—a bizarre schizophrenic patient whose delusions about patients in danger at hospitals all around Chicago were startlingly specific.

Drawn by both curiosity and compassion, Dan investigates, discovering that they were exactly where Catherine said they would be. Who are these people? Why are they in danger? Are they connected with each other?

While incarcerated, he joins forces with an unlikely ally Jake—who murdered his family during a drug-induced psychotic break, but is also a charming hacker with street smarts who creates a plan to get Dan's life back. In his attempts to do so, he threatens to uncover a conspiracy to track and manipulate the population by a cabal of influential people who will do anything to keep their plot secret. He will learn just how far powerful people will go to stay in control, and the high price of the truth.

Schizo takes readers on a wildly unexpected journey into the what-ifs of medical science. Written by an Emergency Physician, Ilene B. Benator crafts situations that are terrifying, yet all too believable.

A Different Kind of Daughter: The Girl Who Hid from the Taliban in Plain Sight by Maria and Holstein, Katharine Toorpakai (Twelve (Hachette Group))

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

Offered by jetangen4571: We need to read this book. It is an ARC from The Reading Room, so maybe place it in a Little Free Library when you are ready.
I had always believed that the Pashtun people were a tall and noble people, but I had no idea that their females were as nothing and forced into seclusion, deliver their baby without trained assistance, or that the Pakistani version of a Taliban found all Pashtun disgusting and open targets for murder. But then, I also did not know that Pakistani sports teams were run by branches of the military, that Squash is the second most popular sport in Pakistan, which is also the most heroin addicted country in the world.
Before being forced to marry, Maria's father, a professor of engineering, had been locked in an asylum, twice, for publicly speaking out about the rights of women to seek an education, receive medical care inherit or buy property, or simply own and drive a car. And the mother was considered an abomination for having learned too much--but husband later assisted her to gain degrees, which she used to pursue schooling for many girls.
Enter Maria. She simply did not fit into the culture. Born in 1990, at the age of 4 she totally disdained the cultural norm, burned the girl clothing, and hacked off her hair. Her father supported her needs and renamed her Ghengis Khan, and she wore her older brother's outgrown clothing. Constitutionally unable to tolerate being kept indoors for schooling, she learned from her highly educated family in the evenings. At the age of twelve, she discovered the sport of squash and found her passion, goals, and joy of life. She became the first Pashtun girl to enter the sport, and was amazed, several years later, to find that there was a national girl's team. But unlike the boys, there were no government supplied shoes, uniforms, transportation to interAsian tournaments. With a lot of hard work, she eventually became the national champion, and therefore as much a target for the Pakistan taliban as her mother and later, her sister who held a public government position. As a target, she became confined to the house, tried to practice, and sank into a deep depression. The family eventually found ways to send her to a meet in Kuala Lampur, but she came down with Dengue Fever and nearly died, spending 6 days in ICU and suffering severe muscle wasting. The family got her home, and then found a way to send her to a meet in the states, even though she was in no shape to play. There, Jonathon Power, world title holder, caught up with her and brought her to Toronto to heal, become able to be competitive again, and coach in his academy.
An emotionally exhausting book, but one that needs reading and sharing.

Description: A DIFFERENT KIND OF DAUGHTER tell of Maria's harrowing journey to play the sport she knew was her destiny, first living as a boy and roaming the violent back alleys of the frontier city of Peshawar, rising to become the number one female squash player in Pakistan. For Maria, squash was more than liberation-it was salvation. But it was also a death sentence, thrusting her into the national spotlight and the crosshairs of the Taliban, who wanted Maria and her family dead. Maria knew her only chance of survival was to flee the country.

Enter Jonathon Power, the first North American to earn the title of top squash player in the world, and the only person to heed Maria's plea for help. Recognizing her determination and talent, Jonathon invited Maria to train and compete internationally in Canada. After years of living on the run from the Taliban, Maria packed up and left the only place she had ever known to move halfway across the globe and pursue her dream. Now Maria is well on the way to becoming a world champion as she continues to be a voice for oppressed women everywhere.

Spookiest Lighthouses by Terrance Zepke (Safari Publishing)

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

Offered by TerranceZepke (author): FROM THE AUTHOR: Lighthouses represent a bygone era that deserves to be preserved and shared. This was a time before GPS and the Coast Guard, a time when the only navigational aid available to a sea captain was the flashing beacons that dot our coastline and inland waterways. Keepers had a difficult job that they often had to do in a remote place, such as in the middle of a bay or on an island. Sometimes conditions were such that it was months before a keeper could get the mainland. These kinds of conditions can take a toll on a man and his marriage. Nearly every lighthouse in America has a fascinating story behind it and many have some spooky stories too! This is the first book in my SPOOKIEST series. To learn more about these titles visit www.terrancezepke.com.

Description: Written for both tourists and armchair travelers, this reference offers a brief history, photographs, and detailed visitor information for the spookiest old beacons in the United States, most of which are open to the public. From the frequent smell of cigar smoke to piano music heard inside, the paranormal activity revealed to occur in these abandoned lighthouses is simply spine chilling. Some even offer ghost tours and after-hours investigations.

The anguished screams of condemned prisoners can still be heard at Execution Rocks Lighthouse in New York, while the spirit of a murdered keeper still lingers at St. Simon's Lighthouse in Georgia: he climbs the tower stairs every night, still trying to perform his duties.

At the Point Lookout Lighthouse in Maryland, thousands of Confederate soldiers died while imprisoned during the Civil War; subsequent investigations have captured 24 different voices cursing and moaning on digital recorders.

The suicide of a lovelorn keeper whose wife ran away with a local ferry captain occupies the New London Ledge Light in Connecticut, while the paranormal activity at Port Boca Grande Light in Florida involves both a pirate and a princess.

Ghost and architectural enthusiasts alike will appreciate reading about these marvelous monuments, including a Victorian mansion light station in the middle of the ocean, the biggest ligh-station complex in the United States, and the tallest lighthouse in Oregon, which is perched precariously on a rocky cliff 205 feet above sea level.
