The Equine Legacy: How Horses, Mules, and Donkeys Shaped America by C. S. Purdy (Mozaic Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by cspurdy (author): Enter to win an ebook copy of my new book. A mobi file (or a PDF) will be provided to the winners. A review on Amazon and anywhere else you wish will be greatly appreciated.

"Fascinating...entertains as it teaches...the perfect gift" Readers' Choice
"Thoroughly enjoyed it" horseandman.com
"Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in equine and American connections." Midwest Book Review

Description: Some of America’s greatest heroes have not gotten the recognition they deserve. These heroes have four legs, and The Equine Legacy tells their story. From east to west, equines played essential roles in the exploration, settlement, and economic prosperity of America, while serving on the battlefield and entertaining citizens across the country. Much more than just beasts of burden, horses, mules, and donkeys were devoted partners and friends to our ancestors, who depended on them heavily, often for their very survival.
In addition to shedding light on these important contributions, The Equine Legacy also covers how an equine illness nearly brought the country to a standstill; how horses saved so many people from dreaded diseases; how equines paid the ultimate price to rebuild a major city; the men and women who devoted their lives to equine welfare; and how these special animals are still serving our country today.

Land on Fire by Gary Ferguson (Timber Press)

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

Offered by timberpress (publisher): We're giving away 15 advance reader copies of this important work.

Description: The wildfires of 2015 were the most devastating on record; more than 9 million acres burned across North America and the United States spent more than 2 billion dollars fighting and suppressing the fires. 2016 is expected to be even worse: by May, more than 1.6 million acres had already burned. Wildfire season is burning longer and hotter, affecting more and more people, especially in the west. Land on Fire—by bestselling nature writer Gary Ferguson—explores the science behind this phenomenon and the research being done to find a solution. You'll learn about the heroic efforts of those responsible for fighting fire, how years of fire suppression and chronic drought have combined to make the situation more dire, and how nature reacts in the aftermath of flames. Color photographs throughout reveal the beauty and terror of fire and the stunning effect it has on the landscape. Land on Fire is for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our time of fire.

Cutting Back by Leslie Buck (Timber Press)

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

Offered by timberpress (publisher): Be the first to read Cutting Back by Leslie Buck. We're giving away 15 advance reader copies.

Description: At thirty-five, Leslie Buck made an impulsive decision to put her personal life on hold to pursue her passion. Leaving behind a full life of friends, love, and professional security, she became the first American woman to learn pruning from one of the most storied landscaping companies in Kyoto. Cutting Back recounts Buck’s bold journey and the revelations she has along the way. During her apprenticeship in Japan, she learns that the best Kyoto gardens look so natural they appear untouched by human hands, even though her crew spends hours meticulously cleaning every pebble in the streams. She is taught how to bring nature’s essence into a garden scene, how to design with native plants, and how to subtly direct a visitor through a landscape. But she learns the most important lessons from her fellow gardeners: how to balance strength with grace, seriousness with humor, and technique with heart. Cutting Back is an insightful debut memoir and story of personal growth that will appeal to gardeners and non-gardeners alike.

Youth Ministry Across the Continents by Fraser Keay (First Half Leadership)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Firsthalfleadership (publisher): I spent over two years compiling, editing and publishing the wisdom of 11 youth ministry veterans from around the world - each writing on the same core topics. I'm looking for fair and honest reviews on Amazon only in exchange for a free copy of my book, which comes out in a couple of weeks. I can deliver the book in mobi (kindle) or epub format to you.

Description: Most local church youth workers across the world look for ideas, inspiration and practical advice to help them with their ministry, and most of us don't look beyond our own country for advice. Yet there is an incredible wealth of practical wisdom available from vastly experienced youth pastors around the world to help answer core issues such as: how to look after your own soul; relate to parents and senior church leaders; get organised; lead in evangelism; communicate efffectively with young people; lead a team; care for youth; balance ministry and family life; work with schools; and how you know how you are called (to youth ministry) in the first place!

First Half Leadership publishing has spent over two and a half years painstakingly bringing together the wisdom and stories of eleven experienced youth pastors from ten different countries on each and every one of these core issues. Youth Ministry Across the Continents contains over 160 years' worth of international youth work experience gained over the last three decades! Inspiring, practical and educational this book will provide you with brilliant nuggets of wisdom you'd never thought of - just read the foreword by 40-year veteran U.S. youth pastor and professor Len Kageler - and give you a broad range of perspectives while reinforcing principles common to youth work across the globe. Read the editorial reviews from Christian leaders from various nations. You will find yourself comparing and contrasting their stories and reflecting on your own ministry, wherever you live. Many of the contributors are still serving as local youth pastors - men and women serving in different nations, cultures and denominations. Despite significant challenges they have lasted the distance and have seen God do amazing things in the lives of young people.

Youth Ministry Across the Continents is accompanied by the website firsthalfleadership.com where you will find videos introducing each contributor from each of the ten countries. This book will open your eyes to see that God reigns over the nations and is clearly at work in the lives of young people and youth workers across the continents!

Description: Watch the end of the world unfold in these twenty zombie-tastic poems by Rhonda Parrish. Experience the grime and the gore of the shambling, undead menace right alongside moments of hope and love.

Excerpt:

White Noise
Every station
ran the same thing
over and over
“This is not a test!”
All but one.
A Christian station
Sermons interspersed with donation calls
twenty four hours a day.
An atheist, she still listened
if only to hear a human voice
express an emotion
other than fear.
Still, looking out at the
shambling masses that filled the street
she had to chuckle when the preacher
offered up eternal life
as some sort of reward.

Final Solution by David Cesarani (St Martin's Press)

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

Offered by stmartins (publisher): A 10 copy giveaway of David Cesarani’s magisterial work on the Holocaust

Description: David Cesarani’s Final Solution is a magisterial work of history that chronicles the fate of Europe’s Jews. Based on decades of scholarship, documentation newly available from the opening of Soviet archives, declassification of western intelligence service records, as well as diaries and reports written in the camps, Cesarani provides a sweeping reappraisal challenging accepted explanations for the anti-Jewish politics of Nazi Germany and the inevitability of the Final Solution. The persecution of the Jews, as Cesarani sees it, was not always the Nazis’ central preoccupation, nor was it inevitable. He shows how, in German-occupied countries, it unfolded erratically, often due to local initiatives. For Cesarani, war was critical to the Jewish fate. Military failure denied the Germans opportunities to expel Jews into a distant territory and created a crisis of resources that led to the starvation of the ghettos and intensified anti-Jewish measures. Looking at the historical record, he disputes the iconic role of railways and deportation trains. From prisoner diaries, he exposes the extent of sexual violence and abuse of Jewish women and follows the journey of some Jewish prisoners to displaced persons camps. David Cesarani’s Final Solution is the new standard chronicle of the fate of a heroic people caught in the hell that was Hitler’s Germany.

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

Offered by RussellEarlSmith (publisher): In return for an honest Amazon review, Theo Cage will make available a MOBI, EPUB or PDF file to all winners.

Description: INSPIRED BY A FRIGHTENING TRUE STORY!

"Holy cow! I picked it up and started reading, and now I don't want to do anything else!
Great story..." Early reviewer.

She's the only American citizen in U.S. history officially listed as missing despite her whereabouts being known.

Our heroine's discovered lying under a heap of garbage behind a fast food restaurant in Phoenix: naked, suffering serious head trauma, her body covered in dozens of Yellow Jacket stings. When she wakes up from a lengthy coma, she discovers she has no memory of her past life. Doctors call her condition dissociative amnesia. They hold out little hope. The FBI can’t identify her from fingerprint or facial recognition software; the local police have no leads or clues. And no one comes forward to identify her. She’s a non-entity. A ghost.

But if she's a nobody, then why are there so many strangers threatening her life—anxious to finish the job somebody had started and bungled years before.

Jane Doe soon discovers the most powerful mob in America is tracking her day and night, as well as an FBI Special Agent who won't abandon her case despite being fired for insubordination. A mysterious organization made up of criminals and terrorists are threatening hundreds of lives if she fails to reveal a secret only she has knowledge of . . . but can't remember.

The Witch's List by Andrew Cairns (Cosmic Egg Books)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by TheWitchsList (author): I am looking for more reviews of my culture-clash/coming-of-age/mystery/horror novel "The Witch's List". It has had good reviews so far and has notably been recommended by Tahir Shah - THE CALIPH'S HOUSE.
Please post your reviews on amazon, goodreads, librarything, blogs, etc.

Description: Sandy Beech doesn't believe in witches and the supernatural. However, certain strange events occur which put his scepticism to the test: a burning book, a falling crucifix, a mysterious illness, and a fire in a convent which kills all twelve nuns. On her death bead, Bernadette, the last surviving nun, warns him to control his lusts and avoid African women. Sandy finds this difficult, since he is attracted to exotic, dark-skinned women and after his hedonistic university exchange year in Paris, marries Rocky from the Ivory Coast. Five years later, childless and with the marriage souring, they decide to visit Rocky's home country. Sandy is drawn into a world of strange beliefs and practices: he finds out about the Witch's List - a list of people destined to die, and is attacked by various animals starting with a ferocious dog in Abidjan. He delves further and further into the realm of African witchcraft, but the horrific truth remains obscure... The Witch's List is the first of a trilogy.

Andrew Cairns has written, quite literally, a bewitching novel, one that speaks to an underbelly which lies dormant in us all. The Witch's List bridges our world of convention, with that of a fabulous Twilight Zone, what may be true reality — a realm of magic and ultimate possibility. I recommend this book because, behind the smokescreen of simplicity, there lies a masked bedrock of extraordinary power. —Tahir Shah, author of The Caliph's House

I use 'remains' in the loosest sense of the word: my grandfather, 45, puffed his last breaths of air into my birthday balloon before suffering a massive heart attack right there at my birthday party which becomes his deathday party. Feeling responsible for 45's death, and as a thank-you for filling Clinical Dad's void after leaving that questionable suicide note, I make it my quest to return 45 to his birthplace amongst the corn of Iowa, USA, suspended inside his soul-bubble. This journey might also help me with my identity-crisis ... I'm a genealogy student, by the way. And who knows, maybe I'll find love - I tend to find things when I'm not looking for them. Join me on a desperate race against time to unveil the truth as my birthday balloon begins to deflate and loose 45 forever to the wind.

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

Offered by CrystalCollier (publisher): These are eARC's for the purpose of garnering reviews. A synopsis of the previous two books in the series is available upon request.

Description: Time is the enemy.

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil, and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Lovers of the paranormal genre will fall in love with this clean read series.

The City of God by B. Stadelmann (Amazon)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Brett664 (author): A quasi-futuristic, philosophical, romantic adventure story, set against the backdrop of a wide-sweeping religious conflict.

Receive a free copy in exchange for an honest review!

Description: It was the Breath of God, and to the people of the City it was the core of their world. It warmed their homes and their hearts, it sustained them and strengthened them, and it filled their lives with joy. Known as the Aether to those who studied it, its intricacies remained elusive to all. It was imperceptible to the naked eye, yet its presence was felt everywhere. It was infinitely subtle, yet immeasurably powerful. With it, the City stood as a fortress against the desert winds, and as a bastion of hope and of faith. Its people lived without fear of disease, war, famine, or poverty. Life was perfect.

But as the pious civil officer Nathaniel Grey will soon come to suspect, all is not as it once seemed.

Heartbeat by D.N. Hoxa (D.N. Hoxa)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by dorihoxa (author): Morta Fox is a Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy series. Heartbeat is book 1 of 3, and will be released on October 25. I'm hoping to have some reviews ready by launch day. If you think this book is something you'll like, please enter, and please be ready to post a review.
The winners will get a link on their emails, where they will write down their preferred format (Mobi, ePub, PDF available). On the 25th, I will send each winner the direct link to Goodreads, LT and Amazon so they can post their reviews.
Happy reading!

Description: Almost twenty years ago, earth shook from explosions that killed billions, and wiped away civilization. Only a small part of the city of Boston remained intact.

To Morta Fox, a twenty-year-old girl living all alone outside the Wall of Protection, waking up with a craving for blood is something she never imagined could happen. To make matters even worse, a vampire who calls himself Hammer takes away her last attempt at self-destruction.

Hammer has been chasing Everard – the vampire last seen with his missing mate – for a year. Right before he finds him, he witnesses a girl jump off the tenth floor of a building. Though her bones break, she heals just as fast. When she stands up, she runs as fast as only vampires can. But she can’t possibly be one, because…she has a beating heart.

When Hammer saves Morta against her will, she’s furious. Until he proposes a deal.
If Morta agrees to help him find her Lord Everard, Hammer will, in return, kill her. It’s a simple deal. They even make a promise, and in the vampire world, promises cannot be broken.

Nothing goes as planned. Morta soon discovers that her beating heart is not the only thing that makes her unusual, and Hammer is the only one who is willing to protect her. Being equally stubborn, it takes a long time for them to admit that constantly saving each other from harm has nothing to do with their deal, and everything to do with how they feel.

By the time that happens, Morta’s part of the deal is completed, and Hammer has only seven days left to fulfill his. What happens to a vampire when he doesn’t keep his promise?

Broadbent finds a note in the file from the original investigating officer, who stated, he was not happy with the boyfriend Charles Sumner. No reason why, just not happy.

Broadbent commenced an investigation going over old ground and before long he had the same feeling about Sumner. Was his sixth sense right?

Also Broadbent gets involved with MI5 and the CIA again. Nothing is what it seems; was he being used unwittingly again to route out a mole on both sides of the pond?

Hermes Beckons by John Caris (Westgate House)

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

Offered by JCaris (author): As the Indy author of the book, I have some copies of the first edition.

Description: Win a signed, first edition copy of John Caris’ “Hermes Beckons.”
Alchemy and magic dominate. Magician Ralph Garland embarks on a quest to discover the secrets hidden in Hermes’ craft. His research branches into diverse religious traditions, including the Neolithic goddess religion. He journeys beyond the veil and initiates a response from the spirit realm. Many strange experiences occur as he progresses in his alchemical studies, and when his conventional worldview disintegrates, he finally emerges through the portal of mysteries. In fear of losing his mind he opens his heart to his friend and love Shasta Garland, who is writing a new novel in her on-going detective series, one that will apply the theme of magic. She supports him in the healing process, and her nurturing strengthens his resolve to attain his mystical aspirations by producing a magical presentation of alchemy: The Alchemical Light Show. Together the couple evolve toward a spiritual healing and bonding.
“Hermes Beckons” is a novel of ideas: thought-provoking and stimulating.

If a Trump-like character found himself in a Harry Potter universe, what would he do?

A short story about a dynamic American businessman who is visiting his properties in Scotland when he is told by a mysterious lake monster that he and only he was born with the powers necessary to free the world from the terrors of the Magic Ministry.

Guaranteed to be an eye-opener for people who have heard only one side of the story.

"A lot goes on in this wild and satirical look at this impulsive and narcissist American businessman. I’m not familiar with the Harry Potter series, but I still found this hilarious." — JD Jung, underratedreads.com

They're Rugby Boys, Don't You Know? by Natalie Vellacott (Createspace)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by sparkleandchico (author): I am giving away copies of my missionary biography in the hope of receiving reviews. All author royalties are returned to Christian ministry.

Description: Natalie Vellacott took a two-year break from her job with Sussex Police to join the Logos Hope Christian missionary ship. She was forever changed when, the ship having repeatedly broken down in the Philippines, she unexpectedly encountered and fell in love with a group of street teenage boys addicted to a solvent called "rugby." The dirty, wild, miserable, rabble were accustomed to hostility. Their curious approach in order to investigate the foreigners was cautious and sometimes abusive. Local Filipinos watched from a distance, fascinated yet fearful. These were the "rugby boys"—untouchable and invisible, even dangerous and definitely not worthy of time, attention, love and care. But now a small group of highly regarded foreigners seemed intent on drawing attention to them.

A true missionary story about Christian hope being brought to the hopeless in the Philippines...

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): A smashwords.com coupon will be delivered to winners promptly. A favor to ask. Please like my Facebook page and/or follow me on Goodreads or Twitter so that I may update you on giveaways, new books and new stories. Many thanks.

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

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

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by StarbuckODwyer (author): A smashwords coupon for How to Raise a Good Kid will be delivered to all winners promptly. Reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and Library Thing or the platform(s) of your choice are much appreciated. A favor to ask. Please like my facebook page and/or follow me on Goodreads and Twitter so that I may update you on new stories, books and giveaways. Thank you very much.

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.

Brownstone by Dean Kutzler (Ironclad Bindings)

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

Offered by Deankut (author): My publisher has given me a few copies to giveaway as I choose and I couldn't think of a more deserving bunch than the folks on LibraryThing!

Brownstone is packed with action, suspense and heavy on the intrigue as Jack Elliot stumbles upon the secret hidden within the pages!

I do hope you enjoy the book, 4 years in the making, 1st in the Jack Elliot Series.

Description: The key to the world’s fate discovers a devastating secret, divinely hidden since the days of Genesis, as he seeks out his family's murderer, only to find that a clandestine organization plans to reshape humanity on the heels of destruction.

When Jack Elliot returns to New York City to pay respect to his dying uncle it’s a race against time. He gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself entrenched in not one, but two murder cases where he’s the prime suspect.

What Jack doesn’t know is that amidst all the murder, an organization created from the beginning of time has been patiently waiting for him. If they find him, the world will be immeasurably changed and most certainly not for the better.

What does an organization as old as creation want with Jack Elliot? Does Jack prove his innocence? Read the first book in the exciting new series, Brownstone, and discover the true facts that will shock the world!

Brownstone is brilliantly plotted, fast-paced and rife with fascinating, yet shocking, truths that have been expertly woven into the fabric of this astounding debut novel. Brownstone challenges the very core beliefs each of us holds, deep down inside, questioning the very fabric of our existence.

Rangers (Sam & Sam Book 1) by Chloe Garner (A Horse Called Alpha)

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

Offered by chloe_garner (author): I will be releasing the sixth book in this world in late October, and want to add reviews for this, the first book, on Amazon and Goodreads in advance of that release. I will provide .mobi files to all winners; please feel free to contact me at that time if you prefer another format.

Description: Sam and Jason have been at this a long time, and they’re some of the best out there. Gremlins, goblins, ghosts of all kind, vampires, even the yeti that time in Cleveland, they go where they’re needed and they kill what needs killed. It’s that simple. And it’s a pretty good life, really.

Then there’s the girl. Samantha. She’s feisty and difficult and she knows next to nothing about what they do, but she’s pretty handy with a hatchet and seems to just keep tagging along with them, city after city, witch after ghost after spirit, despite Jason’s best efforts to ditch her along the way. If he’d had any idea just how complicated she was about to make their lives, he probably would have left her in Georgia.
It’s too bad, really. Sam appears to be in love with her.

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

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

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

Description: Cursed three hundred years ago for a selfless act of bravery, Maja now serves as Protector of the kingdom, living as a hermit in the mountains and guarding the pass from a land invasion.

To assist Maja, the priesthood selects an unmarried girl to act as his Go-Between, his eyes and ears to the goings-on of the kingdom. Each Go-Between is supposed to serve for two years, but the last twenty-two have been released from service early…because of death.

Scarred years ago in a fire that took her brother’s life, Nilaruna has no prospects for marriage or a trade. She knows of the dark pattern of mysterious deaths, but with little hope of a happy life, she volunteers to be the next Go-Between.

Nilaruna expects to run errands for an old man and die in the process. She doesn’t expect to meet a young man trapped in the body of a dragon, who can see past her scars and give her the love she’s always dreamed of.

But someone wants the Go-Betweens dead and Maja with them so they can invade the kingdom.

And then there is Prince Kai and the dire prophecy given by Shiva, the most manipulative god in their pantheon. The prince needs Nilaruna to help save his life and stop an impending revolution.

But saving his own life means resigning Nilaruna to her death.

How far will they go to save themselves, the people they love, and the entire kingdom?

360 to Paradise by Casey Marx (Self-published)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by 360toParadise (author): As a reviewer, you probably know how valuable it is to give reviews to books, especially books from first time authors. So I, as the author of 360 to Paradise, am asking anyone who requests the free copy of my book to kindly give me a review. Tell me where I've succeeded, where I've failed, and what can be improved for my next book. Hopefully you'll love my book enough to praise it and in doing so, help me earn more sales. But also letting me know how to improve helps me make sales in the long run as well. I welcome all criticisms, as long as they are constructive.
Or if you don't feel like leaving a review, that's cool too. Enjoy my story, and I hope it stays with you a long time!

Description: 360 TO PARADISE is a roller coaster of sex, drugs and throwing a middle finger at authority.

A drama about teenagers transitioning into adulthood. And it ain’t silky smooth. The growing pains are like launching off a 50-foot skateboard ramp and smacking headfirst into cement.

Welcome to smoking hot babes at East Beach, epic waves breaking at Rincon, massive illegal raves in the mountains, and legendary parties in I.V. – Isla Vista – also known as H.I.V. for all the rampant, drunken sex that goes down.

Cody Reese, 18, thinks he’s the crown prince of Paradise aka Santa Barbara, California.

His golden existence is about to blow up. But now he’s got to survive the next 24 hours:

• His dealer wants to kill him.

• He knocked up his best friend.

• And his Parole Officer’s dying to throw him back in the slammer.

Come hop on the back of Cody Reese’s skateboard. And take the ride of a lifetime.

“FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH meets BREAKING BAD. Casey Marx has INVENTED A NEW FORM—the SCRIPT-NOVEL. A fresh, balls-out look into the Dark Soul of PARADISE aka SANTA BARBARA, CA.”
—James Kahn, author of POLTERGEIST and THE GOONIES.

"Casey Marx's 360 to Paradise explodes out of the gate with a fury and intensity rarely matched. From page one to the end, it is heart-pounding, non-stop action. Move over Holden Caulfield and Jack Kerouac, your number is up. The new rebel in town is Cody Reese, destined for literary immortality. This book was so compelling and engaging, I couldn't put it down. It's a triumph on every level. A breath-taking debut by a fresh, new American voice."
—David Assael, Award-Winning novelist and writer of Saint Elsewhere, Miami Vice, Star-Trek, the Next Generation and Northern Exposure. His film, "Evan's Crime", is winning rave reviews on the film festival circuit. And his latest movie, The Jade Pendant, just finished shooting in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“360 To Paradise” is a pulsating non-stop 24-hour race against time for 19-year-old drug dealer Cody Reese—charmer, comedian, acerbic wordsmith and a seducer of all. A truly unique vision told in the fragmented vernacular of today’s uber-hip, tech-crazed youth that reveals a world of irresistible characters lurking in the shadows of Santa Barbara high society.
— Philip F. Messina, Award Winning Filmmaker and Writer: "With Friends Like These," "Spy," "Brainstorm," "Released," "Skezag..."

Casey Marx’s prose is kinetic, alive, and the pages roar along FASTER THAN A BULLET TRAIN. His protagonist is a latter-day HUNTER S. THOMPSON rolled into HOLDEN CAULFIELD, a ‘SHAMAN TO THE NEXT DIMENSION.”
— Robert Eisele, WGA Award-winning screenwriter of THE GREAT DEBATERS.

White Mythology by W.D. Clarke (All That Is Solid Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by WDClarke (author): Win a hardcover copy of my novel White Mythology in return for an honest review! The book would suit readers of playful literary fiction in the tradition of Cervantes, Sterne, Joyce and Borges (or, more recently, Robbins, Vonnegut, Amis or Foster Wallace), rather than those who prefer the realism of Updike (etc.) or the spareness of Hemingway or Carver...

Description: Dr. Ed's head is spinning: a long-lost 'son' has just been sent over to his office by the temp agency, his shopping-addicted wife seems to have disappeared, and the clinical trial that he is running for a revolutionary new anti-depressant might well be going off the rails. But Dr. Ed is in control of everything, including himself.

Thus begins "Skinner Boxed", the first of two thematically linked novellas that comprise White Mythology. In the second piece, "Love's Alchemy", five narrators deliver stories of betrayal that are nested like Russian dolls, stories that span an attempted seduction in Tokyo in 1987 back to a brotherly schism that erupted during a bottle rocket game of "war" in 1970s Massachusetts. From boys who poison their teacher's plants to men who compulsively urinate into rivers, these strange (and strangely connected) monologues drop the reader into the pitch-black dunk tank of the soul.

Nobody's Goddess by Amy McNulty (Patchwork Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by AmyMcNulty (author): Please leave a review on Goodreads and Amazon at minimum in exchange for a copy. Mobi, epub and PDF available.

Description: In a village of masked men, each man is compelled to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. A man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll’s childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her. She is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman and the magic of man. The stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither Noll nor the veiled lord is willing to lose.

A Mother Goddess for Our Times: Mary's Appearances at Medjugorje by Judith T. Lambert (Pedernales Publishing)

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

Offered by JudithLambert (author): How does one reconcile writing a book about the Virgin Mary and maintain a personal viewpoint that stands outside of Catholicism? How does one unite non-traditional beliefs with dogma? It is a challenge to try and put these parts together as I was essentially a person without a conventional religious upbringing, attempting to find my way through deeply rigid boundaries. Writing this book was an attempt to connect these divergent systems. To this day, I still maintain a broad view of spirituality and I am still a non-conformist. But saying that, after twelve pilgrimages to the bastion of Mary, I am undeniably changed for the better. All of the inner work in Medjugorje let me keep these and expand my horizons.

To write this book I had to let go of my prejudices towards Catholicism. I had to let go of my disbelief that six children were actually having daily visitations with the Virgin Mary…or something akin as I tried to explain away this possibility. I learned to use a different set of prayer tools from rituals and meditation to holy mass and the rosary. I had to go and see for myself but not for just for a few days. I would travel to Bosnia for periods ranging from two to six weeks where I would wrestle with myself and strive for growth and understanding.

With each successive journey, I began to crave for a return to Medjugorje. I simply loved my experiences there. During my early visits “miracles” were handed out freely like chocolate covered raisins. I saw rosaries turned to gold. I stared at the sun and watched it spin and radiate beautiful colors. I witnessed bleeding crucifixes and the odor of sanctity…the beautiful aroma of roses given by Mary to her children. I heard stories of healing. Did I doubt? Well, I was more than perplexed and often dumbstruck for days by the things I witnessed. It took many trips to process these outward experiences and assess what was happening to me on the inside. Writing a book that might help others see something larger in Catholicism became part of my growth. Documenting my journey somehow made everything more tangible. These occurrences are simply hard to fathom, even now as I write of miracles, I ponder that they appear somewhat implausible. But they are the truth. Go, go see for yourself like millions of seekers have done.

I especially loved my dream life, which seemed to soar during my visits. It gave me so many wonderful dreams to think on and incorporate into what became a burgeoning book. I learned to give myself over freely in mediation and prayer for three to five hours a day. But to tell the truth, the whole day in Medjugorje is one of prayer and inner search. I struggled not just with my personal beliefs but also with my moods, obstacles, anger, pain, boredom, and fear. Yet my dream life held me every step of the way. My dreams gently counseled me on a nightly basis. They were and still are my ticket for understanding myself better as they track spiritual progress. Dreams are exciting and in a way they are the stars of this book. They became the rudder and foundation that ultimately made writing this book easier for me.

How did I resolve my stubborn set of beliefs with a wholly new backdrop? Did I need to let go of everything that was me? No, as I researched Mary and the sacred feminine spanning time, my studies revealed that if Medjugorje proved meaningful for someone like me, it might liberate the sacred feminine for others too. I was never much of a traditionalist but I can now fully see that within traditional frameworks, great spirituality is possible and powerfully alive. One simply has to be able to let go and suspend judgment. To truly go on pilgrimage of any kind, you must dive in and fully immerse yourself. I worked at the process and looked to my dreams for answers, which were provided in abundance.

The true change is not that I went, believe anything differently, or that I somehow “became more Catholic”. The true change is that I am more real. One has to go to where they are called. Pilgrimage works but only if you labor. I am convinced that it is an instrument of change. A pilgrimage coupled with deep introspection can be overwhelmingly persuasive. This is how it unfolded for me.

Description: More than 18 million people have traveled to the tiny Bosnian village of Medjugorje to witness daily apparitions of the Virgin Mary and experience her healing powers. Author Judith Lambert, a skeptic, was among them. Events that occurred during her four pilgrimages there between 1986 and 1991, however, convinced her that Mary is not only present but “everyone’s goddess,” a culmination of the sacred feminine throughout history who loves and nurtures all of humanity.

The Light: A Modern-Day Journey for Peace by Judith T. Lambert (Pedernales Publishing)

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

Offered by JudithLambert (author): While many have heard of the Near-Death Experience this book is different as it searches for the common thread between us, in this world. This is not a book on the afterlife or what happens on the other side. Discovering a global context for Near Death Experience is exciting and being the author I want to spread the word about another way we can view this phenomena.

Description: The ground-breaking novel on the near-death experience that unveils the roots to a global spirituality.

Religion’s common denominator . . .The Light

God does not have a religion.
God does not speak a language.
God does not have a culture.
It is we who require these things.

Why has humankind always sought the Light? What do pharaohs and prophets and festivals around the world tell us about the meaning of the Light? A modern woman has an extraordinary dream that seems like a near-death experience. This gives rise to a quest for truth. Dissatisfied with answers at home, she takes her search abroad and enters a labyrinth of fortunetellers, religious scholars, Sufi guides and spiritual archaeologists. Propelled by what she discovers, her journey continues to the foundation of religious unity.

A Modern-Day Journey for Peace moves us to consider if the Light of the near-death experience isn’t actually the bedrock of religion and the springboard for a universal connection. This modern-day story melds the varieties of religious experience into a visual whole. The essence of God becomes globally and tangibly defined. This story uncovers our prevailing spiritual unity despite our world’s seemingly different beliefs. Ultimately, there is a powerful spiritual bond we have with one another. Gods and the names for God have changed in every era, yet one dynamic remains constant—the Light.

Short Synopsis:
The ground-breaking novel on the near-death experience that unveils the roots to a global spirituality. A modern woman has an extraordinary dream that seems like a near-death experience. This gives rise to a quest for truth and a journey that unveils religion's common denominator. . .The Light.

Murder in the Tremiti Isles by Cesario Picca (Amazon)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by CesarioPicca (author): Hi, I'm Cesario Picca, the author of the thriller Murder in The Tremiti Isles, the only English translated novel. You can also find Gioco mortale - delitto nel mondo della trasgressione and the third adventure Il dio danzante - delitto nel Salento is arriving...

Description: A wealthy tourist from Bologna has been killed in the Tremiti Isles and the reporter Rosario Santacroce, a nice, talkative and charismatic Salento journalist, writes about the murder in the beautiful contest of Tremiti Islands (Puglia, South Italy). During the reading you can hear the sea, see the sun, smell good food, imagine sex meetings.

Nicknamed Saru (the nickname that is given in Salento to those named like him), he covers the city's crime beat. As often happens, occasionally work also follows him on holidays because a real reporter is destined (almost) never to unplug. And that is probably why he gets entangled in the murder of a wealthy tourist from Bologna who like him is on vacation in the Tremiti Islands.

Twin Time by Olga Werby (Create Space)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Olga_Werby (author): Dear LiibraryThing Readers,

"Twin Time" is a very special book. Not only does it deal with autism and its effects on family dynamic, but it wraps the story into a time loop which incorporates part of a real story of my own grandmother's escape from the clutches of marauding Red Army trying to kill her and her family in a rural Russian Estate.

It's a difficult story to explain to its potential audience, and I hope you, LibraryThing community, will help "Twin Time" find its readers and fans.

Thank you!

Description: Alex and Sasha are twin sisters, physically identical down to their freckles. But the resemblance is only skin deep—Sasha is profoundly autistic, while Alex is not. Sasha can’t communicate and acts bizarrely, and the family revolves around her and her intense needs.

Yet the aged, wealthy, and mysterious Aunt Nana seems to have a particular interest in both girls. Offering a helping hand, she encourages the family to move to San Francisco to be near her. And when the young twins discover a tunnel in Nana’s tool shed, it leads them on a journey across the world and back 100 years in time. The tunnel is a pathway to the Firebird Estate, the home of their ancestors, located in rural Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century. Even more remarkable, through the effect that twisting time has on cognition, Sasha is not autistic when she’s at the Firebird Estate.

Now, growing up in two strikingly different times and places, the twins must face their separate destinies among the ravages of the incipient Russian Revolution. Can they save their families on both sides of the tunnel? Can they simultaneously stay true to their own hearts, to each other, and to the people they left behind? Each sister must face her own personal challenge—but only together can they discover their own future within their family’s past.

Description: A Beautiful Love Story Highly Erotic Atmospheric Sensuous Unusual And Intriguing And Expect The Unexpected! A highly erotic, sensuous and atmospheric journey through a beautiful love affair, set mainly in Cornwall in England. David Bourne was a high flying London architect, who having lost his wife and little girl in a sudden tragic accident, has spent four years travelling the world trying to forget. He has just returned to England to start a new life in Cornwall, where he meets the beautiful Anna Redmond, the commander's wife. See it through their eyes and feel it through their minds as it deepens and when the commander enters the arena, expect the unexpected! An unusual story, so real, and ever more erotic as it progresses, it is thought-provoking and told with a great beauty woven into both the sadness and the joy.

White Mythology by W.D. Clarke (All That Is Solid Press)

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

Offered by WDClarke (author): Win a hardcover copy of my novel White Mythology in return for an honest review! The book would suit readers of playful literary fiction in the tradition of Cervantes, Sterne, Joyce and Borges (or, more recently, Robbins, Vonnegut, Amis or Foster Wallace), rather than those who prefer the realism of Updike (etc.) or the spareness of Hemingway or Carver...

Description: Dr. Ed's head is spinning: a long-lost 'son' has just been sent over to his office by the temp agency, his shopping-addicted wife seems to have disappeared, and the clinical trial that he is running for a revolutionary new anti-depressant might well be going off the rails. But Dr. Ed is in control of everything, including himself.

Thus begins "Skinner Boxed", the first of two thematically linked novellas that comprise White Mythology. In the second piece, "Love's Alchemy", five narrators deliver stories of betrayal that are nested like Russian dolls, stories that span an attempted seduction in Tokyo in 1987 back to a brotherly schism that erupted during a bottle rocket game of "war" in 1970s Massachusetts. From boys who poison their teacher's plants to men who compulsively urinate into rivers, these strange (and strangely connected) monologues drop the reader into the pitch-black dunk tank of the soul.

Good luck!

***** 4.7 Stars on Amazon!

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

Description: Jake Corby saved the world. Now, he's being asked to save the universe!

Corby is recovering from his last mission, enjoying life with his new family, when he’s sucked into a parallel universe with nothing but his clothes, his dog, and his eighty-three-year-old grandmother-in-law.

On this version of Earth, the dinosaurs didn’t go extinct and the world is ruled by a spacefaring civilization of dinobirds. If Jake wants to return home, he’ll need to not only survive but locate the  rulers of Earth so they can send him back.

Worse, Corby learns that a universe collision is imminent. Unless he can adapt to his new reality and work with the dinobirds to ward off that danger, his universe, as well as countless others, will cease to exist.

The Universe Next Door is a standalone book and may be understood without reading any of the other books in the series. However, for maximum enjoyment, consider reading Contact Us first.

Description: Everyone can get two free books at rebeccahamiltonbooks.com on the Free Books tab!

Please note: ORIGIN IS VERY HIGH HEAT.

Don’t fall in love with the Doomed Queen.

ALEC KLADIVO: Soldier. Hunter. Fool.

When Alec was a boy, the border posts failed, and Ravagers infiltrated their sector. Through sacrificing his sister, he saved his city and gained the respect of Sector One’s Regent. Ever since that day, he has served his sector with unfailing loyalty and nobility. Until he met her.

ADIRA CHOVANEK: Thief. Witch. Doomed Queen.

In Sector One, there is no greater commodity than a witch. Which is exactly why each and every one of them are in hiding. Should they be discovered by the hunters, they will suffer one of two fates—both of which end in death—unless they can kill a Ravager and bring forth an heir for the sector’s Regent. The only problem is, the Regent is sterile, and would sooner exile a Doomed Queen than admit that to himself or anyone else. This is Adira's fate.

THIRTEEN: The number of days before Adira’s death.

Alec has given Adira just under two weeks to turn herself in and accept her role as the only person who might be able to save their failing sector from certain extinction. And he’s spent each and every one of those days trying to convince her it is the right thing to do. But what happens once he’s finally persuaded her, only to find out he’d been mistaken all along?

But a drunken one-night stand pushes Stacy towards a man who she never would have picked out for anything other than his hot body and his bad boy attitude. He seems like the wrong choice but she can't seem to get enough of him.

Cupid Painted Blind by Marcus Herzig (Marcus Herzig)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Marcus_Herzig (author): Hi everyone,

I'm looking for readers who are willing and able to read a free, advance copy of my soon-to-be-released Young Adult LGBT novel Cupid Painted Blind and post a review on Amazon/Goodreads/LibraryThing by October 31. Your review copy is available in .epub, .mobi, and .pdf formats.

I'm looking forward to reading your reviews. Thank you!

Description: Few things are more exciting and, frankly, unnerving than your first day of high school. Except, maybe, coming out to your friends when they already kinda knew you were gay. Or finding out that the breathtakingly handsome guy you’ve just met is best buddies with your archnemesis who happens to be a homophobic bully. Or being teamed up for a school assignment with that decidedly unattractive, facially-deformed, freaky-looking weirdo who hasn’t got a friend in the world. Or all of the above.

Matthew Dunstan, closeted freshman, future bestselling author, and frequently blushing teenager is on a quest to find himself, find love, and live happily ever after. Sounds easy enough, right? But when the opportunities for failure are endless, it doesn’t take much to turn your life upside down. And that’s not exactly what you need when you try to catch someone’s eye without attracting everyone’s attention.

Cupid Painted Blind is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, and occasionally hilarious roller coaster ride through an awkward freshman’s first few weeks of high school and will appeal to readers of all ages who enjoy Young Adult LGBTQ fiction.

Raffle Ticket by Daniel Kelley

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by LeaDeLinkley (author): Happy Autumn!

Description: A literary mystery with a paranormal twist, Raffle Ticket is Daniel Kelley’s latest irresistible mindbender. Four winners of a small-town raffle are each granted the opportunity to choose one day already lived… and live it again. A deceptively simple prize, as is quickly comprehended, for even minor changes to the past could enact a series of kaleidoscopic reverberations in the present.

Raffle Ticket enters the hearts and minds of its quartet of protagonists while also exploring the bucolic town of Fielding. Mysteries abound and conundrums arise as those about to revisit the past find themselves facing both moral and practical dilemmas. Julie Darling, town librarian and descendant of a once-prominent local family, pines for her long-dead husband while considering a daring plan to remedy past regrets. For Lenny Marsh, it’s a chance to redo the night he made a mistake with devastating consequences. And father-and-son winners Lee Forrester Sr. and Jr. end up selecting the same date, the day that a beloved wife and mother either killed herself or was murdered. Needless to say, little occurs predictably in this fluid trip down the rabbit hole outside of the one thing all discover in tandem: they will not be returning to the present without undergoing a transformation, the pivotal question being to what degree.

In the words of book reviewer Carol Custer, this 73,000-word novel is “the best thing Kelley’s ever written. Raffle Ticket has just the right amount of paranormal to feel believable (for the reader to WISH it were real) without being too far out. True to the markings of a great read, I was IN the story!”

Enjoy!

Complete Self-publishing Guide by Hank Quense (Strange Worlds Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by hanque (author): I'd like the winners to post a book review

Description: Self-publishing is a complicated process and much of the information found on the web is inaccurate or incorrect.
This set of books de-mystifies the process. Besides describing a process to publish your book, you’ll learn how to market it and how to deal with the business side of being an author.
The goal of self-publishing a book is to produce a quality book package to hold your content. Despite what you read on the internet, self-publishing isn’t easy. There is a lot involved in understanding the self-publishing process and it is quite easy to self-publish a book the wrong way
This boxed set of ebooks explains the self-publishing process and much more.
There are four ebooks in the set.
* Self-publishing a Book: describes a process to get a book published.
* Marketing Plans for Self-published Books: covers basic book marketing strategy and tactics.
* Manage Your Self-publishing Project: Uses a project management approach to graphically illustrate the dual, simultaneous processes of publishing and marketing your book.
* Business Basics for Authors: provides an understanding of the business issues facing new authors.
The boxed set provides the new author with a solid grounding in the self-publishing process and associated issues.
Yet another potential problem is this. The internet swarms with scam artists searching for new authors who may not have a complete understanding of the ins-and-outs of publishing and marketing. The scammers are after the author’s money and use slick websites to mislead the author. The more the new author knows about publishing and marketing, the less likely he is to fall prey to these scam artists.
The Complete Self-publishing Guides boxed set is much less expensive than buying the four books individually

U Girl by Meredith Quartermain (Talonbooks)

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

Offered by Talonbooks (publisher): Giving away the last 3 Advanced Review Copies

Description: Award-winning author Meredith Quartermain’s second novel and seventh book, U Girl, is a coming-of-age story set in Vancouver in 1972, a city crossed between love-in hip and forest-corp square.

Frances Nelson escapes her small-town background to attend first-year university in the big city. “You’ve got to find the great love,” her new friend Dagmar tells her. But what makes it love instead of sex? And what kind of love bonds friends? She gleans surprising answers from Jack, a construction worker; Dwight, a mechanic and dope peddler; Carla, a bar waitress who’s seen better days; and her English professor and sailing friend, Nigel.

U Girl blurs the line between fiction and reality as Frances begins to write a novel about the people she comes to know. With seamless metafictional play and an engagement with place that has come to be Quartermain’s definitive style, U Girl tells the story of a woman’s struggle to be taken seriously – to be equal to men despite her sexual attraction to them, and to dislodge accepted narratives of gender and class in the institution of the university during the “free love” era.

“Quartermain has truly outdone herself this time. … This bildungsroman is an extraordinary new addition to Canadian literature … Readers should prepare themselves for a tidal wave of emotion, reflection, and new perceptions when they dive into Quartermain’s latest masterpiece.”
Ubyssey

“A whimsical pleasure to read, and at times deeply felt and affecting … it will amuse and tease anyone who has ever been young, poor and confused about life. Which must be just about everyone.”
Vancouver Sun & Calgary Herald

A father does what he must to save his son and his homeland in the absence of kings. Enter Garreth, ranger and former royal bodyguard, who embarks from his woodland home after defending it from the encroaching loggers of the Blackwoods Company.

Together with his son, Novas, and daughter of a murdered blacksmith, Kayten, Garreth is hounded by bandits, cutthroats, and highwaymen, unleashed upon the countryside by the abolition of the Crown Aegis, defenders of the King, his land, and his people. Garreth unites with the remnants of the Crown Aegis to overcome the military, political, and economic oppression that the Blackwoods Company has imposed on Amatharsus and incites rebellion before the free people of Malquia succumb to crippling recession and the environmental destruction of their verdant nation. But can one man find the strength to challenge overwhelming odds when all hope is lost?

Alexander's Blood Bride by Lorelei Moone (eXplicitTales)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by explicittales (author): Halloween is in the air! This giveaway is for ebook copies of Lorelei Moone's first Halloween-themed vampire romance, Alexander's Blood Bride. Read about a sexy centuries old hero, a curvy heroine who has no idea about the power she actually wields and a bunch of blood thirsty immortals, set on keeping the two apart. We would love some reviews on this book for when it launches on Amazon on the 13th of October!

Description: Cat has never been a social butterfly. The only reason she even agreed to go to the stupid Halloween party was because her friend and room mate Shelly wanted to attend. When she gets spooked upon almost falling into bed with the host, she’s convinced it was all a big mistake. And what’s worse, now people are stalking her wherever she goes!

Alexander Broderick has been hosting his annual Halloween parties for over a century. While his contemporaries use them as an excuse to engage in all kinds of debauchery, his own motives are more benign. He wants to converse, to get a feel for the times they live in through its people. But when Cat walks into his house, he forgets himself and is compelled to seduce her. There’s only one problem: she’s a so-called Blood Bride – a mortal woman whose blood smells so delicious that every vampire in town wants to drain her.

He knows he’s the only one wanting to keep her safe, but can’t act as long as she wants nothing to do with him. And then there’s his own growing hunger to contend with. Can he protect her from the rest of the vampire community, as well as his own lethal cravings?

It’s the ultimate forbidden romance; the love between a mortal and a vampire. What is it that makes flirting with death so utterly tempting? Read on and find out.

Guy - Author of Exciting Christian Fiction with an Edge

Description: ‘I have a story’, that’s what my name means. Tarik, my father named me, but he’s dead now and so is my mother. They all are and I …… I’m alone. The sound of the war giants hammering on the citadel gates stills rings in my ears. The fire warriors killed them, but the giants were just the beginning. I ran as my mother told me and now I’m apart from all I ever knew in a place forbidden to me and to make it all worse is the knowledge that nothing will ever be the same. Truly I am lost and I have no story unless Eloah, my Elohim, chooses to write one.

A boy alone in an ancient forest always forbidden for him to enter or even go near. Now there is no choice as all that lies behind him are the broken dreams and shattered bodies of his people set ablaze in the night all because they refused to bow to tyranny. His nation gone it’s up to him to survive or perish in the night as the case may be easily enough. Nothing is for sure in a forest where even the trees go to war.

The Way – is a story of High Christian Fantasy that reveals truth. Evil is evil and all that is good is under a never ending assault to be polluted by that which is diametrically opposed to the ways of Eloah, the Most High, the Creator of everything. Expect to be led on a journey that reveals the reality of what it’s like to be a warrior cast into the epic struggle of Good vs Evil.

EXCERPT:
Rafargan sank his teeth into one of the coils of the snake people even as his great talons latched on and the two went tumbling as with a hiss the snake woman sought to bite Rafargan with a set of exaggerated canines that I took to be as poisonous as the natural world’s true kind counterpart.
Rafargan tumbled free of the twisting coils and the snake woman reared forward to strike. Twisting in air I sliced through the back of her unnaturally scaled neck. The blade in my hand swung true and with a cut off hiss her head went toppling even as the body of her coils went writhing in the death spasms of its former kind.
Blood showered about freely and with a resounding crunch of stone pulverizing beneath me I landed with an agility of force upon the floor of this pit beyond any normal endurance of a man to withstand on his own and apart from the empowerment of his Creator to do marvelously. With a cry of triumph I flexed upward from my landing squat even as the ground reverberated beneath my boots as those who dared to experience the life of a righteous calling made impact with the ground of this cursed hole in the midst of a former paradise of old.
Lifting both swords out to my sides I beheld the licking flames of heat that coursed down them, which seemed but the outpourings of the eternal spirit of my Creator within me and I knew joy. My God was with me and every battle from this day forward, no matter if it was to my death, would be to the glory of my Elohim and with the same passion that I had witnessed of those who had interceded to spare my life the day before I cried out, “To war!!!”

Description: Monsters, serial killers, and imaginary friends—being a Wonderlander can be murder...

Once upon a time, Kayla was lost. Then she found Wonderland, but not the one you know. Run by ex-government agents and funded by an eccentric Silicon Valley billionaire, this Wonderland is the name of a collective of highly trained vigilantes who hunt serial killers. Now Kayla, aka Mouse, works tirelessly alongside her fellow Wonderlanders, Rabbit and Cheshire, baiting dangerous murderers. But even her extensive training hasn’t prepared her for the return of her older brother…

Shilo has spent most of his life in an insane asylum, convinced his mother was abducted by a sinister Alaskan monster who lures the lost away to feast upon their flesh. And now he’s certain that his sister is in the same monster’s crosshairs. But if Shilo is going to save what’s left of his family, he’ll have to convince his sister that maybe, just maybe, we’re all a little mad.

Five men then arrive.

In the mansion Michael finds an illicit remedy to his humdrum life. With each passing day, he finds himself more and more drawn to it. It becomes the object of his fascination.

The Aha! Moment: The Guide to Creating a Game Changer by Cory The Author

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

Offered by cory19 (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: Ask yourself one question. Why aren't people more successful? If you've ever suddenly had that idea that made you sit up and say 'Aha!' or made that proverbial light bulb go off in your head, you've probably had an idea that could well be a game-changer. We all have, at some stage of our lives, what we would describe as a great idea. These are ideas which make life better, easier or more enjoyable for all who use it, and it may make you rich and successful by implementing it. But the sad fact is that very few of us have confidence and know-how to follow through with great ideas and see them successfully applied. This is the fundamental reason why some people aren’t as successful as they could be. In this ground-breaking book I will change all that for you. In each chapter, I lay out the process of preparing yourself to be a game-changer and show you how to take an idea from a budding concept to its complete form. Build confidence, become a game changer, exploit those fantastic ideas and become successful and financially secure. All you need is this book and those all-important ideas to get started.

Description: The year was 1935 - and with fascism threatening and a civil war in Spain looming it was turbulent times ahead for Sir James McKay, chief of the British Secret Intelligence Service. However, these events paled into insignificance compared with a compromised Berlin operation. His deep-cover agent, a German scientist working on the advanced Enigma coding machine, was missing. To add to his woes Hitler had violated the Treaty of Versailles and was giving succour to the Spanish Nationalist Government and expecting payment in return. This payment Sir James reasoned would be access through Spain to Gibraltar. Should this happen he had an alternative plan - Tenerife. Unfortunately, it transpired that Hitler had thought similarly and beaten him to the Canary Island archipelago. Enter Sir James' protégé, the suave, womanising, but lethal Scott Rutherford to unravel Sir James' woes.

Doctor Gillespie's Discovery by J. R. Duke (Smashwords)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by JRDuke (author): I'm giving away copies of my book Doctor Gillespie's Discovery and in return would appreciate honest reviews if you win one. Winners will receive a copy in the file of their choice (available files: mobi, epub, and PDF). Please leave reviews on Amazon (preferred), Barnes & Nobel, Goodreads, or LibraryThing. I can only hope that you enjoy reading my book as much as I enjoyed writing it. I call it tongue-in-cheek science fiction (a genre I may have invented!), but it has a serious timely message. It was my attempt at sending the pendulum of conventional 'wisdom' in the opposite direction which I felt was long overdue. I welcome any and all comments or feedback. Thank you for your interest! J. R.

Description: Description: Research scientist Doctor Gillespie has made one of the most momentous discoveries about our existence: that there is a biological basis for sexual orientation, a longtime controversial theory proven by the doctor to be factual, which means we actually are born to be the way we are.

Doctor Gillespie's discovery could very well remain a secret from the world known only by a fearful few who have found out about it before being publicized and intend to silence the doctor by whatever means necessary including assassination.

The unacknowledged leader of this criminal opposition to the discovered truth is perhaps the biggest homophobe in the world, a prominent conservative religious-political activist holding the public's ear captive with a round-the-clock televangelism talk show who uses his media empire to manipulate his massive audience into sharing his beliefs.

Is he powerful enough to undermine the truth about who we really are?

"Doctor Gillespie's Discovery is not just a must read but it's a have to read. This book was so hard to put down. It's a book that will keep you on your toes and will definitely keep your curiosity peaked. It's a wild ride!" Amazon 5-Star Review

WEDLOCKED: A Story of Forced Marriage by Hannah Rubenstein (Amazon Digital Services LLC )

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by hannah.rubenstein (author): Enter to win a free copy of the narrative non-fiction e-book WEDLOCKED: A Story of Forced Marriage. Reviews on Amazon and/or Goodreads would be greatly appreciated.

Description: When the plainclothes police officers appeared with a warrant for her arrest, Mayah assumed that her father — a powerful figure in Nairobi’s Indian business community — was attempting to frighten her.

What she didn’t realize was that her ordeal had only just begun.

That night, while her newlywed husband languished in a jail cell, she would be driven across the border at gunpoint, sedated, and locked in an empty room for days. She would be flown across the ocean in a drugged haze and awake in a walled compound in a remote corner of northern India. Later, she would swallow pills and bleed out the child she didn’t know she carried inside her. Mayah would remain a prisoner in her family’s home until she agreed to annul her marriage and wed a husband of their choosing.

WEDLOCKED: A Story of Forced Marriage uses the true tale of one woman’s experience to introduce readers to a pervasive practice that has only recently begun tiptoeing out of hushed living rooms and into the spotlight of public discourse. Many women who had been rendered silent, threatened by familial and community pressure to accept their fates without protest, have been stepping forward to speak out about the injustice of an institution that is only barely beginning to be understood in scope and severity.

Mayah’s story is just one of thousands. But it is hers. And by telling her tale — appalling in its violence, humbling in its magnitude, and ultimately redemptive in its humanity — forced marriage as an abstract concept can be rewritten. Mayah’s story is a pathway to make the intangible tangible; to color the statistics with a voice.

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

Offered by reynoldjay (author): One signed soft cover 121 page illustrated book to be given away signed by the author.

This is book 8 (Final book) in our Wurtherington Diary Illustrated Children's series. This is a fantasy series in which Tammy Wurtherington travels back into important historical events and provides the "nudge" necessary to get the space-time continuum on track.
 
In that I restored the 1883 Diary, I found it fascinating and worth my time to bring it into the public eye. Reynold Jay, Author
Release date is October 3, 2016. Book is in pre-release at Amazon now.
Read more about the entire series at the author's web page. Read sample chapters, interviews, view over 400 works of art, and more. http://biccomix.com/seedsfromheaven.h... Good luck to all.
In this illustrated historically accurate tale, Tammy and her adorable critters give history a nudge in order to see that the Magna Carta is properly signed on June 15, 1215, and becomes the law of the land. This is Tammy's most challenging task ever as she discovers that the political intrigue abounds much like a chess game with real Kings and Queens. The reader will discover the answer to the question, "Whatever happened to Tammy?"
Good luck to all.

Description: This is the eighth book in the illustrated historical series, The Wurtherington Diary. Tammy is in good company with Alfred the mouse, Zeke the orphaned opossum, Cedric, the mischievous mongoose, and Polly, the goodhearted bird.
As with all the Wurtherington Diary books, this one abounds in developing worthwhile feelings for its young readers. Things like honesty, compassion, and respect for others abound on very page.
Tammy discovers that her new mission to nudge the space-time continuum is to see that the Magna Carta is written and sealed by King John in the year 1215. She discovers that she must see that a series of events during 1212-1215 all fall into place. Tammy soon discovers that her work is much like a chess game that involves real Kings and Queens.
Tammy and her little critters disguise themselves as gypsy minstrels and soon find themselves hobnobbing in far-a-way castles with royalty like William, the Lion King of Scotland, Queen Ermengarde, Prince Llywelyn, and Joan (daughter of King John) and the evil King John. She gets caught up in the war of the barons in which Baron Robert Fitzwalter (later to become known as the legendary Robin Hood) and Eustace de Vesci refuse to allow King John to hold their families hostage. Castles are destroyed and banishment by King John send our Barons to France and Scotland to escape certain death. Pope Innocent the III casts an interdict upon King John. Tammy must visit the Pope in Rome in order to see that the details of the interdict include pardons for the barons.
The scheming King John hatches a plan in which he convinces Pope Innocent III that he must raise a mercenary army to march in a Holy Crusade. The barons discover that the armies will be used against the barons and declare him a traitor to his own people. Before the tale is all told, Tammy will participate in battles at Northampton and Bedford where the barons begin to lose the war even though they portend to be, "The Army of God and the Holy Church". All appears to be lost. The Magna Carta seems a distant hope amid a world gone mad with corruption and power.
This historical tale will amaze readers, both young and old. Will Tammy and her little friends save the day and see that the Magna Carta somehow becomes a reality? To this day the Magna Carta is considered to be the most important document in the history of the world. Virtually all free countries turn to this document to set up their governments. Few understand the events that led to it and this may well stand as the clearest accounting of the history of the founding of the Magna Carta. Parents and educators will turn to this for their own reference and then see that their children enjoy this enchanting tale on a journey through the Dark Ages.

The Women Who Love Rome by London Tracy (Monterey Books)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Londontracy (publisher): Win a copy of the new romantic comedy, "The Women Who Love Rome" scheduled for publication December 2016.

Description: With the success of TV shows such as Big Love and Sister Wives, comes the outlandish comedy, The Women Who Love Rome by London Tracy. In the vein of a twenty-first century lifestyle, this comedy tells the story of four rebels, one delicious man and three unforgettable women who shake up the town of Sandcastle Beach, Illinois with their outrageous, over-the-top, flamboyant way of expressing themselves.

This unique family-of-four does everything together: They sleep in the same bed, cook together, shop together, shower together, entertain each other with their hilarious views about life and even experiment with an exotic kind of ice cream that evokes extreme euphoria. “And don't let the cover image fool you," says Tracy. "You won't find much sex in this fable because it's all about the laughs.”

Tracy admits that up until she penned this comedy, she never dreamed that she would consider sharing a man with another woman, much less two, however, now, after spending countless hours in the fictitious world of Rome, India, Storm and Thursday, she's had a complete change of heart.

The Ruins of Rytus: Part One - Residuum of Ravenstone by Emily Reading

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by eReadingAuthor (author): To celebrate the successful launch of the first in the Ruins of Rytus series, I am delighted to offer 100 copies of the eBook in exchange for an honest and open review. Constructive feedback will go into the second part, Novus Promissum, due for release in May 2017.

Description: An 'Epic High Fantasy,' the series, 'The Ruins of Rytus,' charts the decadence of a once great nation, Rytus. Among the temples, sacrifices, and traditions of old, 'Residuum of Ravenstone,' follows the stories of six blood gens, traditionally defined by their blood colour, as they come of age, learn the truth of their ancestors lies, and break away from the definition of their blood.

When the smoke had cleared, all that remained of Ravenstone lay in ruin. Among the ash and glowing embers, stood a single Red Blood's sword, on end, as if thrust into the mountain side by the gods themselves. Cast in the volcanic rock, it became a testament to the power of the gods and their antipathy of betrayal.

The sword was quickly forgotten by all but a few. However, the echoes of Ravenstone’s destruction continued to ripple through the generations that followed. Rytus rose from the ashes, but now its foundations burn. Will the gods forgive her sins a second time?

'Residuum of Ravenstone' is the first book in the series 'The Ruins of Rytus' by Emily Reading. Discover the six blood gens as they learn the truth. Watch them rise from the cinders of their ancestor's lies; as the world they thought they knew, crumbles around them.

From the ashes, Rytus will rise again, but who will ignite the fire?

Description: In golf made easy, readers are given tips, tricks and techniques guaranteed to lower their golf score. Some of these are common sense, but many of them involve the mental aspect of the game and will require some discipline.

For example, do you know the easiest way to lower your score? What is the one big mistake that most players make on the practice green? How about the range? These are just a few of the questions that are answered in this golf book.

By following the advice contained therein, players are virtually guaranteed to shave strokes off their game and break 100 or 90 or even 80 if you are that good.

Loads of insider information gleaned from more than 35 years working in and around golf courses and consulting with golf pros, superintendents, pro shop managers and the general public.
