Description: NY TIMES BESTSELLING EPIC SF ADVENTURE: WILL HUMANKIND SURVIVE THIS ALIEN INVASION?

Battlefield Earth is a science fiction saga of adventure, daring and courage, when man is an endangered species and the future survival of what's left of the human race is at stake.

In the year 3000 AD, man has been savagely ruled for a thousand years by a space-plundering alien race of nine-foot high, gas-breathing conquerors from the planet Psychlo.

One of the Psychlos, the villainous Terl, enslaves a man-creature and forces him to mine Earth gold. Terl’s plan: to teleport the gold to Psychlo, where he can then return wealthy and powerful.

From this dystopian landscape, a slave emerges —Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. As a member of the dwindling community of only 35,000 human survivors, Jonnie has plans to free mankind from alien tyranny—and cause the ultimate destruction of the Psychlo empire.

But is Jonnie’s fight to save humanity from these gigantic and technologically superior monsters a losing battle? Or will humans regain the Earth once more?

A fully immersive audiobook with HD sound.

Description: CAN HUMANKIND OVERCOME THE ALIEN INVADERS WHO HAVE ENSLAVED US FOR OVER A THOUSAND YEARS?

Now available for the first time ever: the 21st Century Edition of L. Ron Hubbard’s New York Times best-selling book Battlefield Earth.

This special edition features new material never before published in book form including: the author’s handwritten notes (annotated), an exclusive author interview, original lyrics for the novel written by L. Ron Hubbard, and cover art by legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta.

Battlefield Earth is an epic science fiction saga of adventure, daring and courage, when man is an endangered species and the future survival of what’s left of the human race is at stake.

In the year 3000 AD, man has been savagely ruled for a thousand years by the Psychlos, a space-plundering race of nine-foot tall, highly intelligent, gas-breathing conquerors with razor sharp claws and superhuman strength.

The villainous Psychlo, Terl, enslaves a man-creature and forces him to mine Earth gold. Terl’s plan: to teleport the gold to Psychlo, where he can then return wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice.

The slave emerges in the form of Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, a member of a dwindling community of human survivors hiding in the Rocky Mountains.

However, Jonnie has plans other than to make Terl wealthy—namely, to free mankind from alien tyranny—and cause the ultimate destruction of the Psychlo invaders.

For Jonnie has discovered the alien's one weakness—their "kryptonite"—a substance native to Earth that is absolutely deadly to them. Jonnie and a small ragtag brand of courageous rebels set out in search of a secret vault where the last remaining stash of this weapon is hidden away.

But is Jonnie’s fight to save humanity from these gigantic and technologically superior monsters a losing battle? Or will humans regain the Earth once more?

Now, discover the fate of our world for yourself in L. Ron Hubbard’s pulse-pounding novel Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000!

"Battlefield Earth is more than pure Science Fiction, its pure gold."—Barnes and Noble

"Non-stop and fast-paced. Every chapter has a big bang-up adventure."—Kevin J. Anderson

Description: Robert Layton is dead.
But at the same time, he isn’t. He eats and breathes, walks and talks, but to the rest of the world he might as well not even exist. He’s forgotten as soon as he’s out of sight.
A former cop, Robert’s arrogant ways led to him being possessed and then destroyed by an ancient evil, a demon that preys on man’s deepest desires. Now that same demon has led him to its latest victim, the first person capable of remembering Robert since his death.
Caleb Miller has made some monumentally stupid decisions, all before the age of twenty-three. He dropped out of college, is stuck in an affair with a married man, and struggles to make ends meet as a folk singer at the same coffee shop he slings drinks at all day.
When a handsome stranger shows up and claims Caleb’s been possessed by a strange sex demon, he’s obviously skeptical. But Robert turns out to be the man of his dreams, and Caleb can’t believe his luck. Too bad Robert has vowed never to touch him.
Forced to live together while battling their intense attraction for each other, they must find a way to stop the demon before it’s too late to save Caleb’s life and his memory of Robert.

Plate tectonics: the engine inside the Earth by Judith Hubbard

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by judithhubbard (author): Share this book with your kids (age 8-14), and you may find yourself facing questions you can't answer! I am a science professor and a parent, and watching my kids develop their natural curiosity is one of my great joys in life. This book makes college-level science accessible to children.

Amazon/Goodreads reviews are greatly appreciated.

This book is available in .mobi (Kindle) format.

Description: What do ancient reptile fossils have to do with radioactive atoms deep inside the Earth's mantle? What causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions? Why are there strange creatures living deep beneath the ocean surface, where hot water and chemicals spew out of cracks in the ocean floor? The answer to all of these is the same: plate tectonics. Over the last century, scientists have discovered how heat generated deep inside the Earth drives movements of the mantle and crust - and how in our Solar System, this process is almost unique to our home planet.

All of this is real science, written at a level that kids can read and understand. The text is supplemented with interesting illustrations and photographs to make the science more vivid, appropriate for both standard Kindle and tablet formats. At the end of the book you will find a self-quiz to test your new knowledge, additional activities that build on the science, and a glossary for the scientific terms used in the book.

Judith Hubbard is a geology professor with a PhD from Harvard University and a BS from Caltech - and also two young children. She started the In Depth Science series with the goal of making college-level science accessible to children as young as eight years old. Kids are natural scientists. This series allows kids to explore their interests and understand the natural processes going on all around them.

Description: Diarmuid is the seventh son of a seventh son. In his family, this means a destiny as a bard — a very special kind of bard. When he inadvertently brings his imaginary muse to life, he sets loose a creature whose only knowledge of the world comes from his own dark tales. Diarmuid must embark on a quest to locate and destroy his muse. But killing her might also result in his own death.

Brigit is the daughter of a wise woman and is expected to follow in her mother’s footsteps. But instead of charms and cures, Brigit longs for danger and adventure. When she refuses a demand from one of the fey, she is forced into an unexpected journey and finally begins to understand her visions.

When Diarmuid and Brigit’s journeys collide, they have no idea what is ahead of them. It will take both of them to destroy the muse — if they survive the journey to find her.

Offered by TerinaAdams (author): Excited to offer Fade to Gray as a giveaway. I can it in mobi (Kindle), ePub. I would appreciate an honest review posted on Amazon or other major book retailers, as well as here. Thanks heaps.

Description: “Ultimately, I cannot force you to do anything. But one day you will see there is only one choice.”

Reality is not what you think.

It all started with one moment, one action, one woman, and Callan was left scrambling to remember what reality meant.

Karesh is no ordinary girl. She swan dives off the roof of the Adolphy tower, one hundred and twenty storys high, and hangs around with a guy who calls himself the Captain and lives on a fifteenth century galleon.

Callan’s finals loom, but then there is Karesh, an alluring woman, but definitely unstable. Bizarre events happen whenever he is around her that really mess with his head.

Soon he suspects she is the lure, leading him into the underbelly of a dark, dangerous drug operation that makes the mafia look like a bunch of old men playing bridge? Or is Callan about to enter into something far worse? For the Captain and his crew carry bad secrets.

Will Callan ever come back from the brink of insanity after he learns what it means to fade to gray?

But can one man find the strength to challenge overwhelming odds when all hope is lost?

Arrival at Portal Island by Attila Benő

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Attila_Beno (author): I will be sharing a review copy of the book with the lucky winners on google drive. I will not send it as an email attachment because of the size of the file! This is a 1000+ page graphic novel in full color, the .mobi file is 200 megabytes. The book is best enjoyed on a reader that can display colors. Phone, tablet, PC etc. I do not suggest reading on a black & white reader. Because of the graphic format, only .mobi version is available.

If you like the book, I would appreciate a short review on Amazon.

Description: Not knowing what he gets dragged into, Michael arrives at a mysterious island to help out his colleagues. He soon finds ancient standing stones that all the locals are afraid of — and with good reason: two settlements have already vanished from the island without a trace in the past few hundred years. Can the team of archeologists figure out what is going on? Or will they just make things worse?

Follow the adventures of a team of archeologists in this exciting graphic novel series! More than a 1000 illustrated pages already published, and even more in the works.

Start the adventure on a remote island. Several settlements have disappeared from here without a trace in the last few centuries. Can you help uncover the ancient mysteries that the island has for our heroes? What are those secretive standing stones that are found throughout the island? Could they really be part of a portal that took entire settlements to another world? Where will our heroes end up if they manage to get it to work?

The Civilization Hunt graphic novel series mixes the quest for forgotten ancient knowledge with excitement, mystery and a little bit of childish playfulness.

The story is written in a way that lets you follow along the thinking of the main characters, and lets you keep guessing based on all the information they have.

The first book sets the scene and introduces the ancient mystery, giving you enough details to keep you up at night trying to figure out all the possibilities. The free bonus materials give you more detailed backgrounds for the main characters as we go along.

Please note that this is a series of graphic novels. The story does not come to a satisfying end at the end of any given book! The story goes on!

A Year of Stories: Black Coral by Steve Spalding (Steve Spalding)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by sbspalding (author): I hope that you enjoy the second volume in my Collection, and I would deeply appreciate it if you take a moment to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads if you win, it's the only way that new readers are able to find the book! Thank you all, you're amazing.

Description: At the beginning of 2016, Steve Spalding — author of Founder's Saga and creator of the popular podcast Steve Reads Stories — challenged himself to write one piece of short fiction, every weekday, for a full year. This collection, Black Coral, is the second in a series of books to chronicle that journey.

Inside are twenty original tales, ranging from a literary fiction piece about two men, a tombstone, and a road trip many years in the making ("The Headstone of Leslie Ann Michaels"), to a urban fantasy short that gives a look at the entrance exam to a very exclusive, very dangerous college of magic ("The Weisz Insitute").

After every story, Steve gives insight into his inspiration, the writing process, and the challenges of 2AM editing sessions.

Black Coral is a book for anyone who adores quick fiction with a edge, stories that can make you laugh or think or feel, while being short enough to be read in a single sitting. It's a book for lovers of literature, and genre buffs alike, and it's one that we hope you enjoy.

Description: Remembrance of Blue Roses follows a man and a married couple in New York City, whose intricate relationship oscillates among friendship, love, love-triangle, and even obsession. Its romantic ambience is interwoven with classical music, opera, art, family legend, and international affairs, illuminating the lives of international civil servants at the United Nations and the UN peacekeeping mission in Sarajevo, and those with direct experience of the Israel-Palestinian conflict and the Holocaust.

Mark, the narrator and an American, works for the United Nations in New York as a personnel officer; his friend, Hans, German, also works for the UN as an economist; and Yukari, Japanese and Hans’s wife, is a professional violinist. One day Mark encounters Hans and Yukari in a museum. As Hans enjoys opera singing and Mark is into painting, the three foster their friendship through classical music, opera, and art. Mark resists feeling drawn to his friend’s wife. One evening over dinner, they discover that their families were acquainted generations ago. This bonds them together. During the summer, inspired by the beauty of Yukari in her light blue dress at the UN garden, Hans and Mark secretly plant blue roses there for Yukari. The blue roses later blossom sumptuously. The three enjoy their blue roses, the symbol of their friendship and bond.

The story becomes complicated by the involvement of two other women: Mark’s ex-wife, Francine, a Swiss, who is remarried to another of Mark’s friends in the UN, Shem Tov, an Israeli; and Mark’s high school sweetheart, Jane, to whom he was briefly engaged. Francine encourages Mark to be happy with Yukari, while Jane now wants to marry Mark. Yukari becomes pregnant with Hans’s child and happily settles into her role as expectant mother. Mark, Hans, and Yukari celebrate New Year’s Eve at the height of their friendship and happiness. … Then a series of tragedies shatters their joy and alters their future forever.

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

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by cmtusa (author): Would appreciate a review in exchange for free e-book.

Description: Dead birds are falling out of the sky and Maurice Delahoussaye suspects the air in New Orleans may be unsafe. The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries claims the birds were poisoned, while meteorologists suggest they were killed by a sudden change in temperature. There’s even talk of terrorism, Bird Flu, West Nile Virus, or high levels of mold spores left over from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. When Maurice expresses his fear, his family tries to assure him. Gradually, though, he becomes increasingly fearful that the government is hiding an ominous secret, and when he begins having strange religious premonitions suggesting that his wife is pregnant with Jesus Christ, he becomes convinced that the dead birds are a sign from God.

Set in the early months of 2006, against the backdrop of Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War, In the City of Falling Stars is a tragicomedy that examines the increasing paranoia following the September 11th attacks, as well as a commentary on the devastating psychological scars that the storm left on the city of New Orleans.

He had conquered the city, made a name for himself. The two of them were a long way from the dirt roads of their youth. Their individual paths had led in opposite directions, which was exactly as they had both intended.

They had both moved on. They had both tried to forget. Florence never wanted to see him again.

But when Florence’s editor gives her a high-profile article to write, an important cornerstone article interviewing Manhattan’s hottest businessman, Florence finds herself back in Alistair’s orbit, thrust suddenly into the uncomfortable present and the painful past that bind them together.

Secrets shared and never forgotten threaten to collide, and to ruin.

Pancha Forkers and the Egghead Robots by Jp Vishnu Vardhan (Jp Vishnu Vardhan)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Wiznu_vardhan1 (author): Hello friends, I'm giving away my self published book to get honest feedback from you, my dear readers. My book is based on Buddhism and has shades of socialism. In addition to Library Thing, please post your reviews in Amazon, Smashwords and Goodreads.

Description: Xobo the Robo, possessed by the evil soul of Mr. God, plans the destruction of Mother Nature to reestablish its fictional alien ancestors system of Fathers and Sons. It raised a Robo Family and demonic Army; they run amok and cause devastation.. Militaries fail against Metal Monsters.. Ultimately, five children with Pure Hearts were chosen to stop Lord Xobo. At last, the War begins.

Quotes from the book:

Lord Xobo - "If there are no plants, no animals, no women, and only reanimated corpses of Fathers and Sons - The Brutons and Kreaks, then a better world, a New World could be created. The human race would have every opportunity to survive without plants, animals and women.
Who knows, we may even go to other galaxies and annihilate plants, animals and women everywhere, until only Fathers and Sons remain in the whole universe. We would sing the glorious smell of putrefied corpses forever and ever."

Uncle Jumbo - "Master Bodhitaran, I'm sorry to say this, but I have no other choice. I could guess what you are going to ask. I shudder to think about those creatures - Brutons and Kreaks. What little children could do against them? Please don't expect me to send these kids to do war against murderous Robots."

Monk Bodhitaran - "No government on Earth has the tech to stand against Xobo and his United Family. Except us. These five children could beat them with the help of these formidable Purple Forks and few of my own magical devices. I'll guide them to victory. Leave them to me, I pledge my life to protect them!"

The story of "friends-by circumstance who decide they must do something important in order to change their lives," Goliath is a rollicking underdog tale about a misguided attempt to bring the Academy Awards ceremony to Rochester, NY and to save the city in the process.

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

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Psychic War with Uncle Sam is earning mostly 4- and 5-star reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, LibraryThing, and Goodreads. Here are some links relevant to the novel and its authors:

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?

"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

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

Offered by Barbara.Smith.Groves (author): I am looking to expand my readership and obtain more reviews. Thank you for your interest!
Reviews on Amazon, and Goodreads would be greatly appreciated.
Enjoy!

Description: "This is a wonderful story! At first, it seems like a teenage drama that's better suited for the Young Adult section, but about midway through the book, that all changes. This is a deep story that explores the dark side of our need to fit in and be accepted. It will have you thinking about what you would do in the same situation. You'll root for some of the characters, you'll beg others to stop, you'll laugh, and maybe even cry."

There is a dark secret that lurks in the shadows of the small town of Leon’s Crossing, Washington.

The town of Leon’s Crossing is nestled in between jagged mountains, and thick forests outside of Seattle, Washington. Jessica Winters is out enjoying her daily nature walk when she stumbles upon that dark secret.

Jessica is a shy, socially awkward 17-year-old. Bullied all her life, and feeling tremendous pressure from her parents, she stumbles upon a mysterious mirror deep in the forest. Thinking nothing of it, she admires its stunning detail until it swirls and morphs into a beautiful spirit before her eyes. At first, she runs away in terror, but later finds she is drawn to the mirror. The figure appears in front of her. He tells her he's her guardian angel, and he appeared to help her realizes her hopes and dreams. Those hopes and dreams come at a price…

As Jessica falls further into The Spirit of the Mirror’s clutches, she finds it more difficult to resist his temptations.

The Sheriff of Leon’s Crossing, Mark McKenzie, has a promising future in law enforcement. Despite his young age, he is well liked, and well respected by the residents of the small mountain town. Mark investigates when unexplained events happen while learning of the town’s dark past.

As Jessica and Mark’s lives intertwine, Mark soon becomes suspicious that all the strange occurrences are pointing right back to Jessica.

Will Jessica’s involvement with the mysterious mirror drive a wedge between them, or even worse, destroy both of their lives?

If you are looking for a pulse-pounding, page turning, exciting first book to the trilogy then this book is for you.

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

Offered by CarmenFerreiro (author): The King in the Stone, a YA historical fiction story of love and heartbreak in northern Spain, goes on sale on July 25 and is available to LibraryThing followers for a limited time.

Description: A full moon,
A silver key,
And the unbending passion of two young lovers
will bring hope to a defeated kingdom
and, through their sorrow, deliver a king
who will change its fate.

Vivid visions have haunted Andrea since her arrival in northern Spain. In her visions, the ruins of the medieval village she’s excavating comes alive, and, around the fires burning in the no longer buried hearths, she sees people dressed in furs sharpening old fashioned swords.
Even more upsetting for her that the headaches her visions leave is the fact that Julián appears in them—Julián, the king from her world whose rejection she is trying hard to forget.

But when a slide bury Andrea under the mountain, Julian comes searching for her. Soon after they are reunited under the mountains, the full moon opens a portal and sends them back a thousand years into the past, to a time right after the Spaniards have been defeated by the Arabian invaders.

Separated by a bitter winter, Andrea and Julian are caught in opposite sides in the battle between the Spanish last unconquered settlements and the Arabian army. A battle for survival that will determine the fate of a kingdom and demand of them the ultimate sacrifice: As the Arabs close on the mountains, Julián makes a decision that will break Andrea’s heart and change them forever.

CATCH OF THE DAY

There was an old man who fished in the sea
He caught a catch that was as little as could be
The fish said, Oh my God, Oh my God
What mayhem is this?
That this large headed creature catches me with a stick
Throw me back, throw me back
You huge headed beast!
I am way too small for your big, crooked teeth

The old man growled and said to the fish
What have you to do with this stick?
I will throw you back
Once I close your little mouth
Won't have you carrying tales back to a trout
About an old man who sits on a brick
And catches little fish for bait with a stick

For bait? For bait?
Then the little fish understood
That he was now the worm
That sat in his stomach like wood

No, no
No, no, he begged the old man
Let me go and I will find you a big fish that stands
And he will satisfy your behemoth frying pan

The old man thought and turnt it about
Then said, okay, I will throw you right out
True to his word, he tossed the fish in
And never saw the lying rascal again

Casket Girls (Cities of the Dead, Book One) by Amy Pilkington

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by amy0807 (author): In New Orleans, the cemeteries are filled with above-ground tombs that resemble tiny houses. Some people call these cemeteries “cities of the dead.” Casket Girls is the first book in the Cities of the Dead series.

Copies are provided for review purposes only. Please post an honest review on Amazon after reading the book.

Description: The summer of 1728 was a dreary time in the fledgling settlement of New Orleans. The men were lonely and morale was low. Work was at a standstill. If the king wanted a picturesque town that would lure new settlers, he had to find a way to motivate the bachelors.

The settlers were excited when they learned that the Le Pelican carried prospective brides, but the new arrivals quickly turn the town upside down. Jacques never believed the stories of vampires in the new world, but he knew there was evil among them. His determination to reveal the truth behind a murder leads to another murder, and the town is torn apart. The casket girls are labeled as vampires and become the target of many. They need a true hero to save them from an angry mob, but do vampires or heroes exist?

Description: You'd think being indestructible would be an easy life…

Unless you're Morticia Thane, living-dead amnesiac and government agent. Thane hasn't been able to regain her memories, even with the combined resources of the FBI and US armed forces. They certainly make good use of her abilities, however, using her to break up a human trafficking ring.

Thane is called back to her old unit, a group of misfit teens much liker herself. While tracking down the Extraterrestrial fugitive Dr. Kass they are hurtled back through time to the American Revolution. Hampered by their lack of historical knowledge (Franklin is the guy on the hundred dollar bill, right?) and their own bickering, they struggle to achieve their goal; Save the future of the human race.

Perhaps Benjamin Franklin, founding father and inventor can help...if he can stop being distracted by his misogynistic tendencies and libido.

Thane must face both the Redcoat army and her own lack of faith in humanity. Can she pull her team together and save the world one more time? Or will her disillusionment mean the end of our history?

We the People: Liberty or Death is full of action, angst, zombies, and enough belly-laughs to thrill you no matter what century you were born in.

Description: Born in Poland in 1939, brown eyed, dark haired and Jewish, Monika was off to a bad start. Her Father was marched off and shot in the first few days of the Nazi invasion. Her Mother, not knowing what had happened to him, took her to Warsaw to try and find him. So began the years of running and hiding. Monika was shuttled between aunties, in Warsaw, in the country, in rat infested basements and for weeks silent under a table with a little doll, two toy armchairs and books she did not know how to read; her Mother had found a room in the apartment of a virulently anti-semitic countess and whilst her Mother could pass for Aryan, Monika could not.
Lodged with another auntie she was forced to drink, dance and sing obscene songs for even more drunken farmhands. She never raised her brown eyes. She had learnt fear and obedience.

She walked through Warsaw burning and was thrown from the window of a train on the way to a concentration camp.

Yet in the end it came to an end and she survived.


She came to England and made a stab at childhood. In due course she married, had children and ran an antiquarian bookshop. She survived.


Many years later, waiting on the doorstep for her first grandson to be carried into his warm, secure home, she decided to write him a letter.


Ravenswood Publishers are proud to present this letter telling her incredible story to her grandson and to the two grandsons who came along later.

Description: After a prolonged sojourn in Europe, the sixty-something newlyweds, Kip and Amanda return to the coastal village of Venice, Massachusetts.

Kip is accustomed to his bread always landing jam side down, so the retired literature professor is ambivalent about the unexpected success of his new book. On one hand, he is thrilled more than he dares admit, even to himself. On the other, he is afraid that it’s all a dream from which he will awake up in bitter disappointment.

However, what awaits him on his return are adventures as diverse as being befriended by a thrill-seeking former Green Beret, getting analyzed by a group of partying psychologists, massaged by an outspoken woman colonel in the Israeli Army, and meeting his wife’s very deadly real husband.

The reader needn’t worry about Kip surviving these ordeals, since a sequel entitled A Scandal in Venice is already in the author’s computer.

Kip is protective of his enigmatic, accident prone wife and worried about how he will be received, following the events that precipitated their departure three years earlier. Amanda is anxious to get her hands back into the clay stored in her pottery studio.

Description: "Long pig was always better from the young..."

Chubby, nine year old Mongrel was smart - Isaac had told him so. He knew that he had been cursed since birth, and he knew that it was only because of Isaac that his mother had allowed him to survive inside of her womb.

On the fateful day that his mother finally left him, surviving on the outside proved to be difficult as well...

"Any evil will lurk in the dark and jump on a small thing as prey."

...and as he sat there alone on his favorite fourth step and waited - waited for Isaac to return with his mother - he found that what came through the door was not Isaac.

What dragged him from his home was not Isaac, but everything that goes bump in the night, and Mongrel soon discovered that the bogeyman would never, ever hide beneath the bed.

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

Offered by polimnia (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: A fictitious novel inspired by true events in the life of the author, this is the story of a young woman whose father was American, of British descent, and her mother Greek. Born in the States in the aftermath of World War 2, Calliope was raised in Athens, following the divorce of her parents and the remarriage of her mother. At university in the U.S., Calliope's life is thrown into disarray when she falls in love with a wealthy Jewish student, whose parents were Holocaust survivors. Drafted into the army, Daniel is tragically killed in Vietnam and the subsequent birth of their daughter out of wedlock dramatically alters the course of Calliope's life. Helena, Daniel's mother, brings up her granddaughter in the Judaic tradition and Calliope returns to Greece, never to disclose the existence of her child, even to her future Greek spouse. This is a poignant account of love and loss and, above all, the implacable forces of the inevitability of fate in Calliope's life.

A God's tale: When War and Death Remained by Sasha Prior

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by sashaprior (author): The fiendish war had raged on since long before Elika was born, neither side showing compassion.

Description: Born in a world of hate and death will Elika be able to stay pure? All the odds are against her, and yet; she pushes to remain who she was born as, untainted and pure. But would it last? With her brothers all fighting along with their mother and father, could she avoid it? Fighting against the very things her people thrived on, believed in; what they were taught to live like from the day they were born. The people of the heaven dimension lived and breathed war, training from toddlers to hold and handle a weapon; trained to kill at their king's command. But Elika was different, she despised the war; the thought of killing sickening her. So when she is called into battle, would she be able to kill and hate, like the rest of them? Or will she break under the pressure of a thousand eyes.

DEATH is NOT the END! by Eugene W Carmichael

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by eugenew (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: "You only have one life to live, so live it well!" How often have we heard that said? Most people have taken that as a given and have not questioned the statement, but others, going back to the dawn of man have always felt that there was a new life following the death and abandonment of our body .Our body serves as our vehicle for moving around, but it is felt that our core selves, being our soul, our spirit, our talent, our intelligence and accumulated knowledge; our very personality, in other words our Dna is all recyclable. They say that all of these things are energy and it appears that Mother Nature has deemed these to be part of The Great Recycling Programme. This is a deliberately short book because most people really don't want to even think of death. I don't want to drown you in a much more in-depth work, but rather I have collected sufficient evidence to persuade us that we are living eternal lives, one stage at a time.

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

Offered by clevelandbooks (publisher): Gray & Company, Publishers is pleased to offer copies of this new Les Roberts mystery novel in advance of publication. Diehard Les Roberts fans-- as well as those new to his books-- will enjoy "Speaking of Murder," #19 in the popular Milan Jacovich series.

Description: #19 in the Milan Jacovich mystery series! When a celebrity-packed motivational event turns deadly, Cleveland private eye Milan Jacovich (MY-lan YOCK-ovitch) finds himself caught up in the mess.
Milan and his associate Kevin “K.O.” O’Bannion are hired as extra security for several high-profile inspirational speakers at a convention in downtown Cleveland, where they get off to a rocky start. Each special guest seems more unpleasant than the last—particularly Tommy Triller, the main draw for the weekend, with an ego to match his bank account. Tensions run high, but Milan thinks they have things covered . . . until Triller’s dead body is found in his hotel room, a bullet hole between his eyes and a motivational CD jammed in his mouth.
Among the suspects are fellow speakers, including southern psychologist Dr. Ben, who resented earning less than Triller; hip hop artist and convicted killer Hy Jinx; and former big-league baseball manager Tony Nardoianni, who might be willing to do almost anything for the right price.
Milan figures he and K.O. are out of work when his significant other, Cleveland homicide detective Tobe Blaine, takes charge of the murder case. But to Milan’s surprise, his old nemesis and local mob boss Victor Gaimari asks Milan to work for him. Nardoianni owes Victor, who wants to make sure the debt is paid—and that the aging athlete’s gambling past stays under wraps as the murder investigation continues.
Tobe’s not happy to have Milan and K.O. operating on her turf. But a job is a job, and Milan is determined to clear his new client of murder . . . by finding the real killer.

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

Offered by JohanMDahlgren (author):

Hi there!
I'm giving away 25 copies of my science fiction thriller novel Under a Dark Sky. It's had some favourable reviews so far, and I'd like to know if that was just pure luck :-)
Why not give it a shot? You might like it.

What the reders say:
"With it's gritty tone, dark sense of humor and colorful gallery of characters, it's really got it all,"
"Fast-paced, exciting and full of twists!"
"I very much enjoyed your characters, your story, and your writing… I enjoyed the humour in the story… The story moved along well with a good, crisp pace… You have a strong and unique story with unique themes."

Description: On the rebel colony planet Elysium, a man claiming to be the next Messiah is brutally executed in a live video streamed by religious extremists. Nothing terribly original so far for Elysium.
Only this time, the man doesn't die.
When cynical chief of security Asher Perez is sent to find the man, it soon becomes apparent that no-one is who they seem and that something dark is stirring in the shadows.
Something that has been watching humanity since the dawn of history.

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

Offered by JPodlaski (author): My second work is now published and I'm giving away copies of "Cherries...", my first book, in hopes that readers enjoy it and want to purchase my new book. The protagonist in Cherries returns in "When Can I Stop Running?"

Description: In 1970, John Kowalski is one of many young, naive teenage soldiers sent to Vietnam to fight in an unpopular war. Dubbed “Cherries” by their more seasoned peers, these newbies suddenly found themselves thrust into the middle of a terrible nightmare - literally forced to become men overnight. On-the-job-training is intense, however, most of these teenagers were hardly ready to absorb the harsh mental, emotional, and physical stress of war. When coming under enemy fire for the first time and witnessing death first-hand, a life changing transition begins...one that can't be reversed.

The author is an excellent story teller, readers testify that they are right there with the characters, joining them in their quest for survival, sharing the fear, awe, drama and sorrow, witnessing bravery and sometimes, even laughing at their humor. It's a story that is hard to put down.

When soldiers return home from war, all are different - changed for life. "Cherries" tells it like it is and when finished, readers will better understand what these young men have to endure, and why change is imminent.

Description: Struggling with newfound sentience and desperately trying to repair itself, The Indescribable Joy of Destruction is a ship trying to find a new home. In a galaxy torn apart by generations of civil war, that isn't an easy task. Tired of being used as a killing machine, it has a huge decision to make: hide and save itself, or help other artificial intelligences achieve freedom. Unable to make the decision alone, it revives the sole human aboard - the enemy officer who crippled it.

Commander Olivia Johnson wakes to find herself in the infirmary of a strange vessel. Her nightmares deepen when she discovers it is the ship that attacked her destroyer. Even as she recovers from her physical injuries, she can't get past her survivor's guilt. She might have failed to protect her crew, but she vows to take revenge on their killer.

When the ship uncovers a genocidal plot by the commander's own admirals, Johnson realizes just what is at stake. Together, the AI ship and the human officer must recruit outsiders from both sides. Training the misfits in battle to prevent the atrocity may be an impossible task, but running and hiding is no longer an option.

Wicked Summer by Roma Brooks

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RomaBrooks (author): I am looking for early reviews of my soon to be released book. Will appreciate reviews on blogs if you have one, on LT and vendors like Amazon, Nook, iBooks etc.
Thanks for reading.

Description: A fun family summer holiday on the beach takes an unexpected turn.

Wicked Summer follows the Bloom family as they spend a once in a lifetime vacation at Cape Harriet, a charming seaside town on Virginia's scenic Eastern Shore.

All Mary Bloom ever wanted was to celebrate her 60th birthday at the beach. The extended Bloom family converges at the Rising Tides Inn, where their slightest whim is catered to.

Forty something Iris is the perfect suburban mom, holding her four kids and husband on a tight leash. 36 year old Hyacinth is single, successful and the self-proclaimed brains of the family. At 26, Poppy is a top travel blogger, wandering across countries most people only dream of visiting.

The rivalry among the sisters is as strong as ever, and each sister is dealing with it in her own way. So while Iris taunts and needles, Hyacinth takes the high road and shows disdain. Poppy suffers silently, lost in her own inner turmoil. None of them has an inkling of the storm that is about to break loose in their lives.

Soft shell crabs and salt marshes will be forgotten as shocking secrets are revealed. Everyone seems to be guilty of hiding something.

Set in idyllic Cape Harriet, Wicked Summer takes the reader on a thrilling roller coaster ride with plenty of laughs, tears and intrigue with heart warming moments, scrumptious food and never a dull moment.

Dwarves in Space by S.E. Zbasnik

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by SZbasnik (author): I'm hosting this giveaway to get the word out for anyone looking for a fantasy and sci-fi story mashed together.

Description: Thousands of years after the jewelry’s destroyed, the sword reforged, the dragon ridden, and the indecipherable prophecy translated into a recipe for sugared biscuits, the dwarves turned to that final frontier: space. And along came the elves, orcs, gnomes, trolls, ogres, and those vermin-like upstarts, humans.

Dwarves in Space is Tolkien merged with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in a horrific transporter accident.

The Elation-Cru is not the flashiest ship, nor the newest, or even has all of its bolts attached; but she can fly. Well, sort of wade through space, and that’s when all the parts are working. She supports a sugar addicted dwarven pilot, an elven engineer, an orcish doctor, a silent djinn, and the lone human trying to hold the entire thing together with duct tape. Variel, the captain, has been hiding from a secret for the past five years and time’s finally run out.

When she goes against her common sense and fights to save her onboard assassin/renter from a job gone sour, she finds herself before an ex-colleague that knew her in her previous life as the Knight of the realm. The entire ship is sent on a mad dash across the universe — from a decaying space station, home to the wackiest species the galaxy has to offer, down to the Orc homeworld, which wouldn’t be so bad if Variel hadn’t spent most of her previous life fighting in the war against them. Chances of survival are nil and slipping fast.

The Tower, the Monster, and the Tree by TM Gregg (TM Gregg)

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

Offered by TMGreggAuthor (author): American author TM Gregg is giving away ten paperback copies of her horror mystery novel The Tower, the Monster, and the Tree. Note: This copy will have the original cover.

"This is a tense tale of the conflict between psychology and the world of magic. Old evil and secrets color the present, where madness lies. Dr. Patrick Denny tries his best to help the tortured souls he encounters, but has his own burdens to deal with. It's an absorbing read, and moves quickly and surely, toggling from the past to the here and now." —Dale T. Phillips (LibraryThing Author)

For more information on this author and her other works visit The Stories of TM Gregg, check out the Book Trailer, and read about the young Patrick Denny in the free short story "The Cave".

Description: Walingford is a place rife with dark history and dirty secrets, and where Dr. Patrick Denny, renowned fiction writer, has returned to the profession he had forsaken years before—psychiatry. To the astonishment of his long-time girlfriend and ambitious literary agent, Helen Olssen, Patrick abruptly moves them from the glamor and excitement of the big city to the quaint, little backwater, abandoning a lucrative writing career from which they both profited. Manipulating his way into a job at Everston Psychiatric Hospital, or Foreverston as the more lucid patients call it, the overconfident and sometimes reckless doctor plunges into the damaged psyches of the most disturbed and hopeless—an insomniac, a schizophrenic, and a catatonic. But as he endeavors to untangle the mysteries of their troubled minds, his own tormented past begins to bleed into his present, and the macabre storyteller that still dwells within pushes him dangerously close to madness.

In this triptych of tales, psychology and superstition, reality and fantasy blend together as the boundaries between the stories within stories break down. In “The Tower” Samantha Elliot can’t fall asleep, but instead of pills Dr. Denny has prescribed a story–the diary of Alfred D. Cummings, an account of bewitchment and sacrifice. In “The Monster” one of the doctor’s fictional creations comes back to haunt him when Michael McKay, a man plagued by the horror of his childhood, believes himself to be the main character in this macabre tale of children and monsters. And in “The Tree” Dr. Denny’s own mental anguish threatens to destroy everything when he fails over and over again to free Amelia Dearborne, a patient trapped within the dark forest of her own mind.

Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary by Susan Rennie (Oxford University Press)

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

Offered by OUP_TradeBooks (publisher): Enter for a chance to win a free copy of the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary! Just in time for Dahl's 100th birthday, this dictionary neatly holds all the words that Roald Dahl invented--to remind you what means what.

Description: This is not an ordinary dictionary. After all, you wouldn't expect an 'Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary' to be ordinary, would you? Lots of dictionaries tell you what an 'alligator' is, or how to spell 'balloon' but they won't explain the difference between a 'ringbeller' and a 'trogglehumper', or say why witches need 'gruntles' eggs' or suggest a word for the shape of a 'Knid'.

All the words that Roald Dahl invented are here, like 'biffsquiggled' and 'whizzpopping,' to remind you what means what. You'll also find out where words came from, rhyming words, synonyms and lots of alternative words for words that are overused.

Oxford Children's Dictionaries are perfect for supporting literacy and learning and this is the world's first Roald Dahl Dictionary from the word experts at Oxford University Press. With real citations from Roald Dahl's children's books and illustrations by Quentin Blake, the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary will inspire and encourage young writers and readers.

Managing Bubbie by Russel Lazega (CreateSpace)

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

Offered by rlazega (author): Enter for your chance to win Managing Bubbie -- the award winning memoir on its way to becoming a movie. Look for the upcoming star-studded audiobook (June 2016) starring Tony Award Winner Linda Lavin ("Alice"), 5-time Golden Globe nominee Gavin McLeod ("The Love Boat"), Golden Globe nominee Lainie Kazan ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding"), Grammy-nominated comic Judy Tenuta, Jj Crowne ("Graceland") and more.

Description: Your chance to win Managing Bubbie — the award winning memoir on its way to becoming a movie. Upcoming audiobook will star Tony Award Winner Linda Lavin, Gavin McLeod, Lainie Kazan & Judy Tenuta.

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 Bubbie.

Insanity By Increments by Alaric P. Cabiling (Alaric Cabiling Ltd.)

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

Offered by Alaric_Cabiling (author): Get a signed copy of Insanity By Increments paperback edition directly from the author. Author Alaric Cabiling would appreciate a review of his title from interested participants of this giveaway.

Description: Richmond author Alaric Cabiling has published Insanity By Increments, his first published work since the release of 2009's The Darkest Day and 2013's Gray Rigorism. In Insanity By Increments, Cabiling reveals characters at their most vulnerable states, in subtle moments that alter each character's destiny forever.

Two brothers test fate. A father mourns the loss of his child. An old abandoned home is the scene of a final journey into the past. A man revisits the scene of a one-night stand. Each story is unforgiving in its attempt at revealing the transcendental from the mundane.

Few books feature the psychological insight and gripping attention to detail that Insanity By Increments exhibits. The lyrical prose flows smoothly and the transitions between time stamps are cinematic. Few books dwelling on the darker side of the human condition present subtle tragedies with such startling clarity, haunting the reader well after the collection has been read.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy (Alfred A. Knopf; 1st edition (September 26, 2006))

Offered by smasler: First edition in good condition. I'm giving it to someone who really wants it.

Description: The searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece.

A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.

The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.
