The London Project by Mark J Maxwell

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by MarkJMaxwell (author):
Hi everyone,

I'm the author of The London Project, a science fiction technothriler set in London.

I'm offering a free copy of the book via email in mobi, ePub or PDF formats in exchange for an honest review on Amazon and Goodreads.

Thanks for your interest!

All the best,
Mark.

Description:
Portal has transformed the lives of London’s residents. The tech giant’s centralised network is ubiquitous, its free services utilised by Londoners for everything from communications to entertainment, transport to health care. As a consequence Portal harvests the minutiae of its users’ daily lives.

On the eve of the network’s expansion throughout the UK, Detective Sergeant Louisa Bennett investigates the death of a young girl. Her body covered in lacerations, the victim’s autopsy reveals an unidentifiable cellular structure permeating her brain. The case is further complicated when no trace of the girl can be found on Portal. It’s as if she simply doesn’t exist.

Following an attack on Portal’s network, private data is leaked on all its users. 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 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 that leads her deep into the heart of The London Project.

NO HARD FEELINGS, a Kate Stanton Mystery by Marta Tandori (Amazon Digital Services, Inc.)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by MartaTandori (author): NO HARD FEELINGS is another book in the Kate Stanton Mystery series featuring Kate Stanton, the feisty and successful semi-retired real estate broker and her new granddaughter, Liz Farrell. If you like family saga "whodunits" that are driven by family secrets and revenge, then you'll like this book.

NO HARD FEELINGS was "unofficially" released on April 6, 2014 with its official release slated for May 23, 2014 and is being offered in mobi, epub and PDF. I need your help in creating some pre-release buzz with your reviews and would greatly appreciate it if you would leave your reviews on Librarything, Goodreads, Amazon, etc.

Here are a few comments about the first book in the series, TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE:

"The twists and turns in this story leave you begging for more. A family saga spanning generations of greed, guilt, incest, murder, and mystery. A must read!" -Corey Goode Fillion (Amazon)

"Hooked me from the get-go. I absolutely loved this book from the beginning to the end. I can tell that a lot of thinking and research went into this book. That is what makes it unique. The characters are from different types of backgrounds and each of them was interesting in his/her own right. I liked the way the author keeps us in suspense until the end - revealing just enough to keep us turning the pages. Marta Tandori is my new favorite author. I am already reading another one of her books which is also interesting." -SEN Books (Amazon)

"Oh my GOD. Right from the first few chapters, this book nauseated me, horrified me, filled my head with graphic images that I'm sure I won't be able to erase for a few months, and made me want to throw my Kindle every time a new plot twist clicked in my head, which seemed to be every few pages. And yet, I couldn't bring myself to stop reading, I just had to keep going to see what happened next! All the characters with seemingly unrelated lives, that seemed as though they'd be brought together so loosely, merged together in a way I could have never imagined! If that last line turns out to be a cliffhanger for a sequel, I'm going to hide in my closet for a week and think carefully about if I'm really ready to experience that kind of emotional roller-coaster a second time just because this book was so beautifully written!" -Raven Elise (Goodreads)

Description: Some secrets can’t stay hidden, especially when they involve murder…

Liz Farrell is still reeling over the murder of her mother almost a year earlier at the hands of her father, Leo Bauer, when she receives the startling news that she’s inherited her estranged father’s sizable estate. Unable to come to terms with her father’s unspeakable legacy, Liz and her grandmother, Kate Stanton, visit Leo’s property in Benedict Canyon, desperately hoping to find closure. Instead, they find a bunker hidden under an old hunting lodge that had been used by Leo at one time to hold Liz’s mother captive. Horrified by the discovery, Liz immediately orders the bunker filled and the lodge destroyed but the ensuing demolition quickly comes to a grinding halt after a man’s remains are discovered in a shallow grave at the base of the old lodge. Once the press get wind of the gruesome discovery, rumors quickly surface, linking the remains to a murder spree that took place at the same address almost half a century earlier; a murder spree conveniently covered up by the governor at the time who also happened to be Leo Bauer’s stepbrother. Liz and Kate’s efforts to uncover the truth behind the murders are soon hampered by family secrets and a killer who’s intent on finishing the job started almost fifty years ago.

XGeneration 1: You Don't Know Me by Brad Magnarella

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by bmagna (author): Winners will receive an ebook in .mobi and .epub formats; pdf files available upon request. Would appreciate an honest review in return (they're gold to us, I tell ya, gold!). As a little bonus, if you leave a review on Amazon, you'll receive a complimentary copy of XGeneration 2: The Watchers upon its release -- a whopping $3.99 value ;) Thanks for participating!

Description: Part X-Files, part Freaks and Geeks, and totally '80s!

In the fall of 1984, Cold War tensions between Washington and Moscow are close to breaking.

But in sleepy Gainesville, Florida, fourteen-year-old Janis Graystone is mainly worried about starting high school, earning a spot on the varsity soccer team, and keeping her older sister from running her life. And then there are her nighttime experiences. Experiences where she awakens in her backyard — out of her body — with the disturbing sense that someone is watching her.

For Scott Spruel, the start of high school means the chance to start over. And he's willing to ditch everything — computer hacking, Dungeons & Dragons marathons, even his comic book collection (well, except for his X-Men) — if it means getting closer to Janis, the secret love of his life. But will Scott's past be so easy to shed? And what about the eerie delay on his telephone, a delay he senses through powers he is only beginning to understand?

Offered by RichardPeters (author): I am the author and looking for honest reviews. Any feedback, negative or positive of this short story is greatly appreciated.

Description: The planet Capella in the Alpha Aurigae system was perhaps the last place mankind ever expected to visit. Out of the way even by cosmic standards and without any conceivable commercial or scientific value, Aurigae wasn’t a likely target for humankind’s first interstellar voyage. That logic changed when, in 2035, the new Lunar Far Side Observatory unintentionally discovered definitive proof of advanced extraterrestrial life around the bright orange star only 42 light years away.

After generations of Herculean effort, humankind has finally launched the most expensive and ambitious multinational project in history. The pinnacle of that space program, the UNS Magellan, is now moments away from First Contact. Staffed with the brightest scientific and diplomatic minds our race can produce, and loaded with our most advanced weaponry just in case, Magellan is ready for any eventuality. Everything that is, except for what they find…

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:

The Tell-Tail Heart by Monica Shaughnessy (Jumping Jackalope Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by MonicaTX (author): I recently published the book and need early reviews! Would love them on Amazon, B&N, etc, as well as LibraryThing.

Description: The untold story behind Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart."

Philadelphia, 1842: Poe's cat, Cattarina, becomes embroiled in a killer's affairs when she finds a clue to the crime: a glass eye. It's only when her beloved "Eddie" takes an interest, however, that she decides to hunt down the madman. Her dangerous expedition takes her from creepy Eastern State Penitentiary to Rittenhouse Square where she runs into a gang of feral cats intent on stopping her. But new problems arise faster than she can solve them.

As the mystery pulls Cattarina deeper into trouble, even Eddie becomes the target of suspicion. Yet she cannot give up the chase. Both her reputation as a huntress and her friend's happiness are at stake. For if she succeeds in catching the Glass Eye Killer, the missing pieces of Eddie's unfinished story will fall into place, and the Poe household will once again experience peace. At the story's pulse-pounding conclusion, Poe gets the inspiration he needs from his feline muse, enough to finish "The Tell-Tale Heart."

Full of Victorian witticisms and rich, historical detail, this cozy novella is a fictional account of Edgar Allan Poe's real-life animal companion. Fans of historical and animal mysteries are sure to like this series.

Description: In a dusty attic there lies the means by which to access another world. A sunken world long unvisited by man. There is a choice to be made between good and evil, a choice that could alter the very existence of mankind, as it did once before. An ancient evil no less potent with the passing of time is ready to be unleashed on the world of men once again and yet there is hope. Hope, that is, if the right choices are made.

Eli didn’t care about much. In fact his continued existence depended on not being put in a position to care about the greater outcome of life around him, which had stolen from him what he loved most in life, his family. Now his family consisted of an unlikely pairing of misfits, who make up the crew of his salvage ship, Celestia’s Prize. He needs money, if he hopes to keep up with the payments on his ship and the avoidance of the life he once lived on land. His wish is to remain at sea away from the world and the painful memories of his past. Those in desperate need of money are not known for wise decision making so when Eli catches the hint of a Civil War era treasure fleet enroute for England from the beleaguered Southern Confederacy, in a desperate bid to buy the allegiance of the English Crown into joining in on the side of the South, he’s more than intrigued by the salvage opportunities to be had. The treasure fleet disappeared, but now, thanks to research and some speculative instincts, he now has the key by which to find it. At least he thinks so, but treasure, so often illusive, weaves a tale of a different nature. A tale of greed and enslavement by one’s fellow man and the gateway to a possession that chains the soul and unleashes hell.

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

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (publisher): Goliath Gets Up was named one of two 5-star finalists in the humor category for the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards. The giveaway is being done to generate interest in the title and to respectfully request reviews on Amazon and elsewhere.

Description: Goliath Gets Up was named one of two 5-star finalists in the humor category for the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards. Indie Reader described it as a "sidesplitting read in which you find yourself shamelessly and boisterously rooting for the most outrageous band of misfits to ever have a dream." Goliath Gets Up is about a rag-tag bunch of friends-by-circumstance who decide they must rise out of lethargy and do something important in order to change their lives. It is hilarious and not to be missed. A true underdog story.

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

Offered by carole.lanham (author): To celebrate three months on the Amazon Bestseller lists, Author Carole Lanham is giving away 100 Kindle copies of the book club favorite THE READING LESSONS. This is a great way to check out the book that's being called THE HELP's steamy cousin and find out why readers are so passionate about the dangerous, eye-opening relationship between Hadley and Lucinda. Enter today for your copy.

Description: SOME LESSONS ARE HARDER TO LEARN THAN OTHERS…

Mississippi 1920: Nine year old servant, Hadley Crump, finds himself drawn into a secret world when he is invited to join wealthy Lucinda Browning’s dirty book club. No one suspects that the bi-racial son of the cook is anything more to Lucinda than a charitable obligation, but behind closed doors, O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright. What begins as a breathless investigation into the more juicy parts of literature quickly becomes a consuming and life-long habit for two people who would not otherwise be left alone together. As lynchings erupt across the South and the serving staff is slowly cut to make way for new mechanical household conveniences, Hadley begins to understand how dangerous and precarious his situation is.

The Reading Lessons follows the lives of two people born into a world that is unforgiving as a Hangman’s knot. Divided by skin color and joined by books, Hadley and Lucinda are forced to come together in the only place that will allow it, a land of printed words and dark secrets.

Offered by chriswimpress (author): Welcome reviews for this work of speculative, political fiction

Description: It’s late afternoon in the tiny Portuguese fishing village of Naviras, where Eleanor Weeks is sipping wine and watching the ocean.

Even though she’s been there dozens of times, how she arrived that particular afternoon is a mystery to her. Until she remembers she’s the wife of the British prime minister, and that she’s just been killed in a terrorist attack.

As Ellie explores her personal afterlife, she recalls her troubled marriage during her husband’s rise to the very top of British politics. She remembers the tragedy and secrets which dominated the last ten years of her life, before recounting her role in a conspiracy which threatens to destabilise not just Britain but the wider world.

Description: One of the funniest books you will ever read, Goliath Gets Up was named one of two 5-star finalists for the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards in the humor category. 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 an outrageous underdog tale about a misguided attempt to bring the Academy Awards ceremony to Rochester, NY and to save the city in the process.

Description: They say love heals all wounds, but what if the path to that love was the very cause of those wounds?

So it is with Jerin Endersul. Despite the love he found in Juli, their union has left him isolated and impoverished, and every time a potential solution appears on the horizon, life throws another obstacle in the way.

Living with Julianos Tenzalin meant getting a job closer to their new home, and all that was left in the desolate town of Sendura was the module plant, where an accident necessitated Jerin to undergo drastic surgery that left his dreams in tatters.

Just as he allowed himself to believe he may be improving, the crippling headaches that once blighted Jerin’s existence make a very unwelcome return. His consultant offers him a solution in the form of a new wonder-drug, PSI-626, that has the most bizarre side-effects, allowing him a glimpse into the secret life of the partner he now rarely sees.

She doesn't have any latent magical abilities and she’s not the Artan. However, her allies aren't seeing it that way. Neither are her enemies. In fact, Hannah’s life is in jeopardy nearly from the moment she arrives in Aerisia. And becoming the Artan may be the only way to survive…

Unfortunately for her, the world can't handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak - even the ones she thought were her closest friends.

Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school - Levi. Everything feels normal again... or does it?

Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she's never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen - students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things vying for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice - will she settle for 'great' Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across 'amazing?'

From the author of the Alyx Rayer Chronicles, comes a refreshingly different Young Adult series with plenty of love, suspense, and a new take on the Paranormal.

Offered by MarkCarver (author): Hi everyone, I'm Mark Carver, the author of Indelible, which was recently released by Trestle Press. It's a very unique story that I'm eager to share with the world, and I hope you enjoy it!

INDELIBLE: One choice can change everything...and some choices can never be erased.

Description: Most people would say that Cameron McConnell has a pretty sweet life - living in sunny California, designing fantasy weapons for big-name clients, and enjoying his bachelorhood with his loyal dog Conan.

But it's not enough. Cameron knows that deep inside him is a barbarian that wants to break free. The only problem is that no one else knows it.

So he makes a drastic choice: a savage tattoo on the left side of his face.

From that moment on, everything changes. His family is horrified. Women are intrigued. Friends are in awe. And the fantasy weapons world goes nuts. Cameron becomes an instantly-recognizable celebrity, and he thinks that this could be what he was missing all along.

But what happens when the mask we show the world becomes a permanent part of us? And what happens when we start to believe the myth we have created?

TICK to the TOCK by Matthew Turner (Turndog Publishing)

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

Offered by MatthewTurner (author): I'm offering my latest novel, TICK to the TOCK to anyone who wishes to read it. In return, an honest Amazon & Goodreads Review would be most appreciated. Free Books, yey!

Description: Discovering you have an inoperable brain tumour is a shock, but with a ticking clock, I must decide whether to fight or tackle my bucket list one-by-one. My name is Dante King, and I’m an average twenty-two-year-old with dreams and a lifetime to complete them. At least, I did until this morning.

Something strange happens when you’re told you have a few months left to live. I want to defeat this but don’t think I can, and I can’t imagine dying whilst so many wasted wishes remain. But this isn’t only about me, as my parents urge me to stay and fight, and my two best friends argue about what’s best for me. And then there’s Danii, the one who got away. I always figured we’d get a second chance, another opportunity to tell her how much I love her.

Looking back on the times I said no instead of yes, battled Danii’s love, and talked about adventure rather than doing it, I know what I must do. It isn’t to fight, but to travel, and embark on a journey of self discovery. I’ve never been happy, but I must finally allow myself to be, because Love & Living Begins Now!

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

Offered by MatthewTurner (author): This giveaway is open to all residents in all countries, and all I hope for in return is an honest Amazon & Goodreads Review. Yey for FREE Books. Enjoy :)

Description: One boy. One girl. One insignificant moment that changes their lives forever.

Bella and Clark are two young twenty-somethings, finding themselves in a chaotic and crazy world. One craves love; the other avoids it. Will they find one another, or will a single what-if moment send them down different paths?

In the same mould as Sliding Doors, Uncertainty, and Smoking/No-Smoking, Beyond Parallel flips between two parallel tales. One follows Bella and Clark as a couple, the other as if they never meet.

Friendships, careers, dreams, fantasies...their lives are no different to yours or mine.

Follow their journey over a fast paced, mazy two-years. Highflying careers, book tours, teaching teenagers, hipster warehouses, coffee shop hangouts, a despicable salesman...they're all confronted.

It's incredible how a small, everyday decision can affect how you look, where you live, the people you love, and who you become. We could all live a billion lives, but we're only given one. Is it all a game of chance, or are Bella and Clark meant to be?

Description: Ned Matheson is sharing a house with the woman he loves, but he can’t kiss her, or even touch her. In fact, she can barely look him in the face. He knows he needs to be patient; Fila Sahar has been to hell and back as a captive of the Taliban for over a decade. Now she’s safely back on American soil, but her fears hem her in so tightly, she might as well be a prisoner again. If he wants to marry her—or even date her—he’ll have to help her regain her courage. He thinks he’s found the perfect way for her to become a strong, independent woman—he’ll give her a restaurant of her very own to run.

Fila can’t believe she’s finally home, or that a handsome cowboy like Ned cares for her, but before she can give her heart to any man, she has to find the courage to stand on her own two feet. When Ned surprises her with his perfect solution—the restaurant he’s leased and renovated in her name—she’s overwhelmed—with fear, not gratitude. She can barely leave the house, let alone run a business. So when Ned’s father sends them out of town to check on the family’s remote hunting cabin, she’s grateful for the delay.

Ned knows his father hopes this trip will split them up, but he’s determined it will bring them together instead. When disaster strikes, all bets are off. Ned will learn what it’s like to be helpless. Fila will have to recover the courage she lost years ago.

Can they survive the weekend? Or will this trip be their last?

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.

Once Upon A Road Trip by Angela N. Blount (Artifice Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Perilous1 (author): ***Enter to Win an Ebook Copy of Once Upon A Road Trip!***

Angela N. Blount (author) is looking for a few more honest reviews of this YA/NA story on LibraryThing, Amazon, B&N, and goodreads, and is offering up 35 ebook copies in the winner's choice of ePub, Mobi, or PDF version. :) Thank you in advance for your interest!

*An unusual true account, written largely in 3rd person.

*Book Club questions included at the back of the book.

*Recommended for ages 14 and up.

Description: Eighteen-year-old Angeli doesn’t "fit in." She’s never been on a single date, and she lives vicariously through an online world of storytelling. With the pressures of choosing a practical future path bearing down, she needs a drastic change. Too old to run away from home, she opts instead to embark on a solo 2-month road trip. But her freedom is tempered by loneliness — and anxiety tests her resolve as she comes face-to-face with her quirky internet friends.

Aside from contracting mono and repeatedly getting herself lost, Angeli's adventure is mired by more unforeseen glitches — like being detained by Canadian authorities, and a near-death experience at the hands of an overzealous amateur wrestler. Her odyssey is complicated further when she unwittingly earns the affections of two young men. One a privileged martial artist; the other a talented techie with a colorful past.

Bewildered by the emotions they stir, Angeli spurns the idea of a doomed long-distance relationship. But she is unprepared for the determination of her hopeful suitors. In the wake of her refusal, one man will betray her, and the other will prove himself worthy of a place in her future.

Angeli sets off in search of a better understanding of herself, the world, and her place in it. What she finds is an impractical love, with the potential to restore her faith in happy endings.

A true story with an unapologetically honest outlook on life, love, faith, and adventure — Once Upon A Road Trip is a coming-of-age memoir.

Philosophy of Happiness by Martin Janello (Palioxis Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by thorino (author): To publicize my recently published book, I am handing out 30 e-book copies for the next month. I wrote intensely on it for over 6 years because I thought its groundbreaking, comprehensive approach toward happiness could greatly benefit humans and humanity. I would appreciate your giving it a look at my website and, if you like it, your letting others know about it.

Description: THIS PDF E-BOOK COMBINES PARTS ONE AND TWO THAT HAVE ALSO BEEN PUBLISHED IN A TWO-VOLUME PAPERBACK EDITION. THE E-BOOK AS WELL AS FURTHER INFORMATION AND EXTENSIVE EXCERPTS ARE AVAILABLE AT HTTP://WWW.PHILOSOPHYOFHAPPINESS.COM.

Happiness. We spend our life and all our efforts in its pursuit. Yet do we really know what it is and how it occurs? Are we secure in how to achieve and maintain it? Are we certain that we are maximizing our potential to obtain it? Our answers to these questions may not be as firm as we would like them to be. The principles and strategies we produce or receive from others may not provide the happiness they promise or we desire. We may be able to blame interference or seemingly unchangeable circumstances as causes for this shortfall. But we may also sense that our lack of insight arrests our happiness at levels short of its potential. We are searching, often not even knowing what we are looking for.

This book investigates in a thorough manner what happiness is and how we might achieve happiness. It is written as a theoretical and practical guide that does not require prior philosophical training. Striving to cover all facets of human pursuits of happiness, its philosophical considerations in­clude topics of law, economics, political science, sociology, history, anthropology, psychology, biology, and physics. Its inclusive examination reveals happiness as an intensely individual phenomenon as well as a systematic force that shapes human destiny and matters beyond up to a cosmic scale.

The book illuminates these subjective and objective functions of happiness. Its insights about the nature of happiness may help us to understand the general subject matters of our search as well as the general terrain and rules by which we must abide in our pursuit of happiness. However, it does not presume to know what specific objectives and pursuits will make us happy. Rather, it develops, describes, and encourages us to discover tools to find, understand, and define our personal happiness and to pursue the implementation of this vision with optimized preparedness. Its objective is not to indoctrinate but to empower us.

The book proposes that humans are generally endowed with all internal constituents and mechanisms to develop their happiness to its fullest possible extent. Unless our faculties are pathologically impeded, we might only have to become aware of these inherent forces to actuate them. Improving our happiness seems to be a function of comprehensively revealing our concept of happiness and permitting it to take its natural place. The mission of the book is to assist in this process. Finding what makes us happy requires that we achieve knowledge of who we are and of what we want. It requires us to be mindful of our wishes, our needs, our personality. Once we understand our motivations, we must arrange and implement them to their best effect in relation to one another, our capacities, other humans, and our nonhuman environment. The book supports us in gaining these insights and in the resulting tasks.

The book further examines how much happiness we can expect to obtain even under the best circumstances. It describes external and internal constraints that threaten our achievements.

Have Mercy by Siobhán Béabhar (The NegRoll Herald)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Siobhan_Beabhar (author): I am giving away 25 copies with the expectation that readers will provide an honest review in exchange for the free book.

Description: Looking for an honest review in exchange for a free copy.

Content Warning: This naughty yet hilarious story explores the complex subjects of identity, stigma, and sex work. The issues of passing and colorism within the African American community are lightly explored. Due to the coarse language and explicit sex scenes, this story is intended for readers over the age of 18.

Mercy Higgins. Cantankerous Widow. Prized Teacher. Beloved Escort. In an industry where erotic skills matter, she sucks. But, not in a good way.

Mercy is a cantankerous fifty-eight year old African American widow who still mourns the deaths of her husband and stillborn daughter. When catastrophic medical bills threaten her retirement savings, Mercy decides that morality is left to those who can afford it, and she becomes a prostitute hoping to earn money to settle her debts. To garner a client list, Mercy hosts evening soirees, and her house unjustly earns the label of Washington D.C.’s newest brothel. Soon drawn into Mercy’s mad scheme, her middle-aged tenants revel in the spotlight their notoriety has created.

As they navigate the murky waters of social stigma and wield the mercurial moods of their powerful clients, the ladies will test their moral limits and sexual boundaries. Particularly for Mercy, as she handles a young, new—and White—client, Major Jackson Ransom, who is hell-bent on having the older woman, even if it means barreling through her emotional barriers to get to her heart.

Description: The first time Nick Northfield saw a demon was the summer of 1988 in Houston, Texas, when he was nine years old. It wouldn’t be the last. . . .

On the outside, Nick has everything a kid could want: a Nintendo with plenty of games, two good friends, and an unrequited crush whose interest in him might be growing. His mom always told him, “Count your friends on one hand and call yourself lucky,” and Nick always listened. But something is wrong on the inside, for he’s having haunting visions, nightmares that cause him to wake up screaming, and thoughts that he’s different than other kids and very much alone. And not long after his first sighting of a demon, he sees another. . . .

On the opposite side of town, Sal Burke helps operate his family’s candy store by day, and by night embarks upon a vicious killing spree, eager to watch his fame around town grow. And it does, as the town soon grows wary of the vicious murderer known only as the Pied Piper. Now Sal is opening a new candy store in Nick’s part of town . . . and horror will soon follow.

Beware, the Pied Piper is coming to town, and he’s bringing his lust for murder and mayhem with him.

The Seer is a terrifying novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat . . . and up till morning.

Description: Do you remember Damien? Raven makes that kid look like an angel.

In book #2 of the OF WAR Series, Ares settles down with his wife, Alena, to await the birth of their son, Raven. As Alena struggles to enjoy what should be a blessed event, prophetic visions of an adult Raven haunt her dreams. Are they true visions or false ones implanted by Cernunnos who told her the boy would bring glory to Ares but only pain and agony to her? The strong but delicate Fey is relentlessly bombarded by hostility from the Olympians making her yearn to be back on Ares' secluded island home, far away from all the bickering and backstabbing that makes up Life on mighty Mount Olympus.

Before Raven is even born, Zeus outwardly despises him for his Fey blood given to him by his filthy Celtic mother. With no way out and no way to keep his family safe from his father, Zeus the God of Gods, Ares enters into a blood pact that could cost the God of War everything he holds dear.

After a harrowing birth wherein mother and son are nearly lost to Ares, it quickly becomes clear that Raven may be the most powerful and cunning Olympian ever born despite his muddled bloodline.

As Zeus, Apollo, and Aphrodite plot against the new family by carefully planting the seeds of rage and doubt in Ravens' mind, they turn son against mother. It appears as though Alenas' visions and Cernunnos' prophecy are coming to life as Raven grows to be a very angry young man.

As the true past between the Olympians and Celts is revealed, the battle for Ravens; mind and the ultimate control of Olympus begins. Before its over, the white snows of Olympus will run red with blood.

Necropolis by Guy Portman (N/A)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by guyportman (author): Enter the giveaway for the chance to be one of the first to read Necropolis (Release Date: April 24th).

Description: ‘A black comedy of true distinction’

‘Not only a funny, twisted, erudite satire on the psychopath genre, this novel also boasts a compelling plot and finely sculpted characters’

Dyson Devereux works in the Burials and Cemeteries department in his local council. Dyson is intelligent, incisive and informed. He is also a sociopath. Dyson’s contempt for the bureaucracy and banality of his workplace provides ample refuge for his mordant wit. But the prevalence of Essex Cherubs adorning the headstones of Newton New Cemetery is starting to get on his nerves.

When an opportunity presents itself will Dyson seize his chance and find freedom, or is his destiny to be a life of toil in Burials and Cemeteries?

Brutal, bleak and darkly comical, Necropolis is a savage indictment of the politically correct, health and safety obsessed world in which we live.

‘I was at once fascinated and disturbed by the devious Dyson Devereux with his malicious pedantry, wicked schemes and grotesque good taste. A barbed joy’

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

Offered by Glagoslav (publisher): In connection with the release of the new book "Sankya" Glagoslav would like to offer a giveaway. Review posted on Amazon and your personal blogs will be much appreciated.

Description: Sasha “Sankya” Tishin, and his friends are part of a generation stuck between eras. They don’t remember the Soviet Union, but they also don’t believe in the promise of opportunity for all in the corrupt, capitalistic new Russia. They belong to an extremist group that wants to build a better Russia by tearing down the existing one. Sasha, alternately thoughtful and naïve, violent and tender, dispassionate and romantic, hopeful and hopeless, is torn between the dying village of his youth and the soulless capital, where he and his friends stage rowdy protests and do battle with the police. When they go too far, Sasha finds himself testing the elemental force of the protest movement in Russia and in himself.

Originally published in 2006, Sankya is even more relevant today as a prism through which to view the recent large-scale actions against Vladimir Putin. It is Prilepin's first novel and is widely considered his best.

Redefined: Discovering and Celebrating What God Really Thinks of You by Kenneth Ortiz (Leafwood Publishers)

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

Offered by ACUPress (publisher): The publisher is giving away copies in hopes of receiving reviews on LibraryThing and Amazon

Description: This book opens up and makes practical the basic Christian doctrine of justification, showing how it enables Christians to live with confidence and enjoy life in Christ.
God desires an abundant life for you. However, the biblical truth most likely to help you live abundantly has been tragically neglected by the church. Many Christians do not understand their status with God, and this leaves them with perpetual guilt. Every believer is declared righteous, through a wonderful exchange, where our sin is charged to Christ and his righteousness is accredited to us.

Redefined will teach you how to understand your status in God's sight, so that you can rid yourself of guilt, enjoy God's fellowship, walk in supernatural confidence, and truly live the Christ-honoring abundant life that God desires for you.

Link to audio retail sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1k5cL...

Detailed Description:
Cracking Grace questions the very basic concepts of spirituality through the eyes of Audrey, a young girl in the midst of a tragedy—and through the eyes of Mary, a seemingly lifeless cemetery statue. As her father slips into madness, Audrey is left to explore a secret world for answers to her loss. Aided by her faithful companion, a bluebird named Bluebell, Mary sets out on her own mission of discovery—despite chiding from the other residents of the cemetery: the cynical Jesus; two wisecracking gargoyles; and the eccentric ghost Mrs. Grant, a curmudgeonly old woman trapped among the graves. Part fable, part dark fantasy, Cracking Grace is the story of loss and of newfound friendships for a young, wounded girl. It’s the story of a father bound to the flesh, unable to accept death. It’s the story of a woman trapped in stone, determined to understand her existence.

"Cracking Grace is an unusual, touching and ultimately uplifting novel that will leave you considering its themes for some time." -Rosalind Jackson, Warpcore Science Fiction & Fantasy

"Cracking Grace is an interesting read. It will be a meaningful book for anyone struggling with grief. It is quite touching." -Stephanie Rollins, Reader Views

Blackjack & Moonlight: A Contemporary Romance by Magdalen Braden (Harmony Road Press)

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

Offered by MagdalenBraden (author): I have a stack of Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs) of my latest contemporary romance novel to give away in the hope of getting lots of reviews ahead of publication in June. This is book three of the Blackjack Quartet - the one in which Blackjack McIntyre himself is the hero. Yes, even judges fall in love, and Blackjack does so in spectacular fashion! Like all the books in the series, this is a standalone romance, so don't worry if you haven't read the earlier books.

Description: A super-sexy judge has to declare his love for the lawyer of his dreams before he’s even met her.

Jack “Blackjack” McIntyre, Philly’s superhero judge, meets his match when Elise Carroll appears. Trouble is, she’s a lawyer in his courtroom. Stating his feelings for the court record isn’t the way to start a relationship… particularly with a woman who thinks “love at first sight” is as real as the tooth fairy.

Elise wants nothing to do with Blackjack’s potent charm and alleged romantic feelings. Still, men leave when they’ve gotten what they want… and they all want sex. So she offers to skip the candlelit dinners and go straight upstairs to unwrap him like a birthday present.

Jack and Elise negotiate a deal — they’ll alternate his romantic dates with her “sex only” dates. The contract works… until both of them get more than they bargained for. As Jack puts it, “falling in love isn’t for the faint of heart!” Can two legal eagles make this relationship work?

Blackjack & Moonlight was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America® 2012 Golden Heart® contest.

Offered by ACUPress (publisher): Leafwood Publishers is offering giveaway copies a month in advance of the release date.

Description: A story about shipwrecks, snakebites, beatings, meetings, and other church events. When was the last time you saw crowd control at a church?
If you ask most people—at least Western people—what they think about Christianity, they will probably give you a pretty domesticated vision of church. Almost half of Americans think that religion is at best irrelevant and obsolete, and possibly a way of making the world a worse place.

But I have a hunch most of us wouldn't like the world if Jesus hadn't been born into it. From our modern ideas of human rights, to prisons and orphanages and universities...For thousands of years the people who have followed Jesus have been a compelling force for good in the world.

The way of Jesus has always been wilder than we think and more dangerous than we'd like. This is a book about what it means to belong to the community of God—a book about how to Support Your Local Jesus Revolution.

This is why Acts of the Apostles is so important. The four Gospels are followed by a book about what the people of God did. Because the gospel leads to action. It leads to a different kind of people embodying a different way of life. And as Western Christianity becomes more assimilated into Western culture, it is good for us to notice not just what the earliest Christians said and thought, but what they did. Acts is a manifesto of a people who went all over the known world proclaiming that Jesus is Lord and that God is doing a new thing that is available for anyone.

Life Work: Confessions of an Everyday Disciple by Randy Harris (Leafwood Publishers)

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

Offered by ACUPress (publisher): The publisher is giving away 10 copies in advance of the book's release in June

Description: What does minimal human ethics look like? Can Christians really be followers of Jesus in the way they live today? In his own unique style, Randy Harris wrestles with these and other ethical issues facing Christians and all humanity.
In a world gone crazy, what would basic human decency look like? Are there principles that all humans could follow to make their neighborhoods, countries, and world more just and peaceful? Randy Harris, from his long experience as a teacher of philosophy and ethics, calls us to those principles of fair play, justice, and peace.

But Christians are called to an even higher standard. As a follower of Jesus, Randy, sometimes humorously, always pointedly, focuses on the call of Jesus for a higher righteousness. He places Christian behavior in the context of the philosophical and cultural contexts of our day, making profound concepts accessible to all his readers.

This book offers down-to-earth wisdom from a lifetime follower of Jesus. Out of his own practice of the spiritual disciplines, his presentations before hundreds of churches and university audiences, and his deep love for his students, Randy draws us into the circle of love for God and for our neighbors.

The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky by David Litwack (Evolved Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by dlitwack (author): From the author of There Comes a Prophet and Along the Watchtower comes a new literary journey exploring the clash between reason and faith, and the power of hope and love. The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky will be published on May 19, 2014. I'm seeking early reviews.

Description: After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light—two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.

Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena’s plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.

These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena’s home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself “the Daughter of the Sea and the Sky.” A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.

But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever... and perhaps their world as well.

Falling for Autumn by Heather Topham Wood

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by woodtop255 (author): Win an eBook of the upcoming New Adult romance novel from bestselling author Heather Topham Wood.

Description: Autumn Dorey had no problem leaving her hometown of Newpine and the friends there who’d betrayed her. Everyone thought they knew what happened the spring night Autumn’s world fell apart. Vicious rumors about the incident circulated, and she had to be homeschooled the last year of high school to escape her tormentors. All she wants now is to get away from it all and start over at Cook University. She leaves everything but the memory behind—something she swore she’d never forget—and sets off to rebuild what was broken.

Blake Preston is precisely the type of guy Autumn wants to avoid. He’s gorgeous, arrogant and the college’s beloved football star. As much as she believes he’s someone she should steer clear of, avoiding him proves to be impossible. He shows up everywhere around campus, offering her a no-strings attached friendship.

Autumn can’t deny Blake stirs up emotions she thought fled years ago. But things he’s been hiding begin to emerge and collide with her past, leaving her heart ravaged in their wake.

Quantum Spirit - Apocalypse by Sallie Haws (Fedd Books)

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

Offered by JKSCommunications: Five Lucky Winners will each receive one copy of Sallie Haws' incredible book Quantum Spirit - Apocalypse.

Description: “‘She’s gone!’ Katrina’s eyes were big as saucers. I guess she didn’t really believe that I would disappear because the color had drained from her face as she stared wide-eyed and slack jawed at the center of the circle. The others opened their eyes in awe. I felt the strength of the circle fluctuate with the drop in energy, and the vibrancy of the colors dimmed as the group’s anxiety increased causing the contraction of their auras.

Then I noticed the woman . . . ‘Hello, Salena,’ she greeted me with a smile.

‘My name is Amalya Gaian. Welcome to the Fifth Dimension.’”

Salena Hawthorne is coming of age in more ways than one. And, the changes she is experiencing go way beyond simple hormonal overload. When her “family gift” comes on with a vengeance, Salena has to learn how to channel her developing psychic abilities to stop a pandemic from wiping out millions of lives.

Her newfound gifts of reading auras and inter-dimensional travel give Salena more trouble than she is ready to handle. With the weight of several worlds on her shoulders, Salena will need to call on her family, the Society of the Silver Moon, her Spirit Guide, and a few other unexpected allies to take on the supernatural enemies that threaten their very existence.

From These Roots by Audrie Clifford

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

Offered by AudrieClifford (author): I always mail out my books the day after receiving the names of winners, so you won't have to be waiting a long time for it. Of course, that's when I start holding my breath, hoping for a review.

Description: From These Roots is a fictionalized accounting of the lives of two women which covered a ninety year time span, from the early settlement of the Midwest through world war two and far beyond. Based on actual facts and family legend, it tells the story of Florence, whose quiet life became disgraceful just prior to the beginning of the twentieth century. She entered into an unhappy marriage and was forced to leave all that she had known behind. In this period of time, Florence’s life was like the lives of many other American women of that era, where poverty and large families were the norm.
Florence’s daughter, Emma, is the other woman in the story. Always seeking to elevate herself and her family, Emma’s focus was on appearance. She could be fierce or she could be forgiving, but she could not tolerate an injury to her pride. Although she experienced poverty at times and encountered the sting of marital betrayal, she did not let circumstances define her. In her own way, Emma was every bit as strong as her mother.

Offered by CypressH: I am the publisher. This is a fantastic book which will have you laughing out loud on buses and trains and not caring about the looks you get.

Description: Comedy of Terror is a droll satire that takes a juicy bite out of all of America’s paranoid delusions and sacred cows: Military war hawks, the bunglers at the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, ATF, CIA, and all the other alphabet noodles that foster our fantasies of safety. Shady politicians and the dubious culture that has given rise to New-Age churches and Native American casinos are chewed without mercy, and not even true love escapes without a few teeth marks.

Fast-Track Your Health: The Four Keys to Successful Weightloss by M.D. Mohammad A. Emran (Cypress House)

Offered by CypressH: We represent the publisher. We are giving it away because we think it is a fantastic way to teach people to change their lives.

Description: The purpose of this book is to systematize the process of weight loss. Often, people don’t know where to begin with weight loss, and they start with incorrect information. Rather than focus on a specific diet or type of exercise, as most books do, Dr Emran de-emphasizes those conventional approaches; instead he looks at the process of weight loss and shares with readers the common factors among people who’ve already succeeded in losing weight. By examining previous successes we can identify the key factors that are most likely to yield future success. The science is broken down into basic concepts, and the doctor’s many analogies will lead readers to understand the importance of the key elements for success. To illustrate some of the difficulties and some of the techniques he describes, Dr. Emran also includes his personal experiences with patients and with his own family.

While eating less, eating healthier, and exercising do play an important role in weight loss, Fast-Track Your Health focuses on the things that can actually lead us to achieve our desired weight. Too many of us lose weight only to regain it. Even surgery is only temporarily successful, because it doesn’t address the root cause of excess weight and doesn’t employ the essentials of long-term weight loss. Fast-Track Your Health shows us how to coordinate our efforts, create realistic goals, and make the most effective and sensible choices from the very beginning.

Playing the Hand We're Dealt: Memoirs on Recovering from Suicide by Bekka King (Active Change Press)

Offered by Bekka_King: I am the author.

The ebook version of this book came out last summer.

The print edition of the book was released this month.

We are celebrating the release of the print edition via several book give-aways.

Description: This book is a post-hospitalization diary of a mid-life woman - with a contextual preface of biographical data and partial hospital psychiatric records. The diary details first-person efforts to mentally and emotionally heal following a suicide attempt.

This author - who has a history of depression and who encountered a mid-life period of unemployment during "the great recession" while also being diagnosed with a rare combination of physically painful and difficult-to-treat medical challenges (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - CRPS or RSD - and a bone tumor) - chronicles the ups and downs of being expected to recover after a near-fatal suicide attempt. The suicide attempt and initial months of attempted mental health recovery occurred mid-way between two surgeries. Diary entries delve into a wide range of personal struggles - from managing professionalism and self-esteem as a mid-life MBA who is unemployed and financially strained, managing housing and other basic necessities while unemployed, first-person assessments of what needs to be changed in one's own psychological make-up and how to bring about those changes, a look at how mental and emotional health (or lack thereof) impact physical illness, thoughts on learning positive life traits by observing respected individuals, and intimate thoughts on having a physically attractive psychiatrist.

Themes in this book include depression, suicide, mental health recovery, assertiveness, and hope.

When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.

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

Offered by woodtop255 (author): Win a signed copy of the New Adult contemporary romance Falling for Autumn.

Description: Autumn Dorey had no problem leaving her hometown of Newpine and the friends there who’d betrayed her. Everyone thought they knew what happened the spring night Autumn’s world fell apart. Vicious rumors about the incident circulated, and she had to be homeschooled the last year of high school to escape her tormentors. All she wants now is to get away from it all and start over at Cook University. She leaves everything but the memory behind—something she swore she’d never forget—and sets off to rebuild what was broken.

Blake Preston is precisely the type of guy Autumn wants to avoid. He’s gorgeous, arrogant and the college’s beloved football star. As much as she believes he’s someone she should steer clear of, avoiding him proves to be impossible. He shows up everywhere around campus, offering her a no-strings attached friendship.

Autumn can’t deny Blake stirs up emotions she thought fled years ago. But things he’s been hiding begin to emerge and collide with her past, leaving her heart ravaged in their wake.

Debt Collector Season One by Susan Kaye Quinn (Susan Kaye Quinn)

This is an audiobook.

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

Offered by SusanKayeQuinn (author): I'm giving away two audiobooks of the entire first season - please review on Amazon where the audiobook is available! Thanks!

Description: Season One of the Debt Collector serial with all nine episodes - ON AUDIOBOOK.

What's your life worth on the open market?
A debt collector can tell you precisely.

Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat, jackboots, and the black marks on his soul that every debt collector carries. He's just in it for his cut, the ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, the people who will make the world a better place with their brains, their work, and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja's sex workers keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane... until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted by a sex worker who isn't what she seems, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone—a dark pit he's not sure he'll be able to climb out of again.

This dark and gritty future-noir is about a world where your life-worth is tabulated on the open market and going into debt risks a lot more than your credit rating. For more info see the Debt Collector website or watch the 2 minute book trailer or listen to the audio sample here.

Contains mature content and themes.

The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob (Random House)

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

Offered by booklove2: PLEASE NOTE: I'd prefer you only request this if you also requested this from the recent Librarything Early Reviewers giveaway last month. This is an ADVANCE READERS COPY. I'd really prefer a review of this asap, as if you received it for review from Librarything. I received a copy from both Librarything and GoodReads so I'm making the second copy available here. (I'll probably really love this then!) thank you!

Description: For fans of J. Courtney Sullivan, Meg Wolitzer, Mona Simpson, and Jhumpa Lahiri comes a winning, irreverent debut novel about a family wrestling with its future and its past.

With depth, heart, and agility, debut novelist Mira Jacob takes us on a deftly plotted journey that ranges from 1970s India to suburban 1980s New Mexico to Seattle during the dot com boom. The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing is an epic, irreverent testimony to the bonds of love, the pull of hope, and the power of making peace with life’s uncertainties.

Celebrated brain surgeon Thomas Eapen has been sitting on his porch, talking to dead relatives. At least that is the story his wife, Kamala, prone to exaggeration, tells their daughter, Amina, a photographer living in Seattle.

Reluctantly Amina returns home and finds a situation that is far more complicated than her mother let on, with roots in a trip the family, including Amina’s rebellious brother Akhil, took to India twenty years earlier. Confronted by Thomas’s unwillingness to explain himself, strange looks from the hospital staff, and a series of puzzling items buried in her mother’s garden, Amina soon realizes that the only way she can help her father is by coming to terms with her family’s painful past. In doing so, she must reckon with the ghosts that haunt all of the Eapens.

Priceless Stones by James Revoir (CrossLink Publishing)

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

Offered by JamesRevoir (author): I am the author of Priceless Stones. I am delighted to give one softcover edition away, with the intention of generating buzz and reviews.

Description: The culmination of over two years of intensive study, Priceless Stones is a 42-day, Hebrew-based, Christian devotional which beautifully merges the best of two worlds—academic scholarship and gut-level practicality. Citing two-hundred forty endnotes drawn from over fifty academic sources, Priceless Stones carries textbook-level credibility and invites the reader to pursue further research. At the same time, the language of Priceless Stones remains easily accessible to a wide spectrum of readers of all backgrounds. Uncommonly transparent, each page of Priceless Stones throws a window wide open into the life and heart of the author—incorporating into the narrative his personal successes as well as his failures.

Each daily message highlights one Old Testament verse or brief passage and focuses on one or more key words from the text of the Hebrew—the language in which the Old Testament was originally written. While drawing from Old Testament Scriptures, Priceless Stones is written through the prism of New Testament Christianity and the finished work of redemption which was accomplished through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Each daily encouragement is reinforced by a concluding declaration and prayer. As an added bonus, appendices at the end of the book include a Scripture index and both Hebrew-English and English-Hebrew glossaries.

Prior to publication, Priceless Stones had already proven to be ideal for both individual and group study. Far from having a dogmatic tone, it is an encouraging volume, absolutely brimming over with a level of inspiration which lifts the reader above his or her present circumstances. It is the passion of the author to invite the reader to not only be acquainted with, but to personally experience, the amazing, incomprehensible, boundless love of God and to radically encounter Him on a deeply intimate level to such an extent that the reader is never the same again.

My Bright Shining Star: A Mother's True Story of Brillance, Love & Suicide by Rhonda Sellers Elkins (Perfect Publishers Ltd.)

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

Offered by RhondaE (author): I am the author of this book and I would greatly appreciate reviews.

Description: To everyone who knew her, Kaitlyn Elkins was a happy, intelligent, compassionate and extremely talented young medical student with a bright future ahead. However, behind her warm smile and string of impressive achievements lurked a dark secret - depression; something that she hid so well from all those who knew and loved her. This is the story about a mother's quest to find some answers as to how her daughter, who seemed so happy on the outside, could hide such a dark, horrible depression that ultimately led to her suicide. It is a story about her wonderful daughter's life, the lives she touched, the search for answers, the stigma of mental illness, the great love and deep bond they shared. The book also incorporates insightful experiences from other depression sufferers, contributions from Kaitlyn's friends and views from medical professionals. This heartrending memoir of love and loss also serves as a caution to parents, teachers, counselors and young people that depression can lurk among the high achieving, that they hide it expertly and, if not reported and treated, can lead to suicide. It is a warning to everyone.
