The Cynic in Extremis by Jacob M. Appel (Able Muse Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent directly by author. Please consider adding this book and my other titles to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: Poems. Finalist for the 2017 Able Muse Book Award. Eclectic characters in everyday scenarios populate Jacob M. Appel's THE CYNIC IN EXTREMIS. We attend a sister's second wedding with a "hand-me-down groom"; trick-or-treat with a young son; encounter a former teacher long retired, still critical; relive difficult ancestral memories of the Holocaust. Full of fun, wit and insight, these poems present—often unapologetically—uncomfortable truths gleaned from close examination of social norms and conventions mostly taken for granted.

The Childless Ones by Cam Rhys Lay (Gowanus Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by camrhyslay (author): Author offering 25 electronic copies of my novel, THE CHILDLESS ONES, in exchange for a review. The novel straddles both literary fiction as well as epic fantasy, and should appeal to fans of both genres.

Description: "...impressively creates two vivid worlds, each with its own history and compelling characters, while also offering a meditation on the relationship between creativity, fertility, and shared memory. A stunning fantasy debut." -Kirkus Reviews

TWO WORLDS...TWO ALTERNATING NARRATIVES...A REALIST RELATIONSHIP DRAMA...AN EPIC FANTASY...

In the "real world," we open with Jack Ampong just leaving a prostitute when he receives a phone call that his wife Sarah has been assaulted. With this incident as a jumping off point, we watch as Jack and Sarah deal with past guilt and regrets as well as their own ongoing struggles with relationships, infertility and parenthood.

In the "fantasy world"—ostensibly written by Jack—a bureaucratic Empire rules with an iron fist...an ancient sect of sorcerers have extraordinary powers but are cursed with the inability to have children... and a race of beings called the Mandrakar live lives one quarter the length of normal people, but have memories that are passed on to future generations through the last of an ancient breed of tree. Along the way, we meet a crotchety governor who just wants to do right by his granddaughter, a hardboiled, lesbian, dwarf detective who just wants another drink, and a villainous sorcerer whose motives form one of the central mysteries of the story.

Throughout the book, the two narratives echo off one another—often in surprising ways—ultimately commenting on the very nature of storytelling itself.

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

Author Homepage: https://mattgianni.com/

Description: As the crusader era ends, Templar Sergeant Brim Hastings must free his imprisoned brethren by surrendering the heretical scroll that has enabled their two-hundred-year leverage over the Roman Catholic Church. After escaping his order’s persecution, and having the role of savior thrust upon him, he and Cypriot apprentice tanner Shayla Kostas discover the boundaries between good and evil are not where they’d thought.
Seven centuries later, Rick Lambert’s investigation into Christian priest abductions in Iraq grows in scope after he’s given a cryptic Roman gaming stone. As he learns of the motive for recent Templar preceptory demolitions throughout France, he and his team must prevent religious extremists from shattering Christianity by winning the race to rediscover the Vectis Templi—the Lever of the Temple.

Wedding Wipeout by Jacob M. Appel (Cozy Cat Press)

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

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other books to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: A mystery novel, but also a satire of religious mystery novels (ie. if you are offended by mild profanity or an irreverent rabbi, please do not request.)

From the jacket:
Two elderly spinster sisters––Florence and Lorraine––have lived together ever since the death of their wealthy father, living on generous stipends provided in his will that continue until one of them marries––at which time that sister is cut off financially. The sisters’ family is shaken up when Florence invites them to her wedding. The morning after the wedding, Florence is found dead in her bed. Was it an asthma attack as her new husband and the police believe or did someone enter her room in the middle of the night and suffocate the old woman with a pillow? Local amateur sleuth Rabbi Jacob Kappelmacher is brought in to investigate the suspicious death. He soon discovers that all of the sisters’ relatives stayed overnight following the wedding and could have strangled the old woman in her sleep. So could have the bridegroom. But who did it? And why? With no money and no motive, why would anyone kill the old woman? Rabbi Kappelmacher begins his investigation by interviewing all of the interested parties, intent on figuring out the convoluted and devious crime––and the sinister culprit behind it.

Silent Whispers; What One Thinks is Crazy, Another Knows is True by Tami Urbanek

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by TamiUrbanek (author): As the author, I am offering 2 free ebooks in exchange for a review.

Description: When Tami Urbanek began working with the public as a medium, she never envisioned how her path would change. Moving beyond working with people's spirit guides, deceased children began arriving to share their own shocking experiences. These children revealed the horrific torture and government scientific experiments that ultimately led to their death. With a heavy heart, Tami listened to their stories and helped them to feel loved and safe in order to cross over to the other side. Tami, along with two other women, began traveling to different locations, within the United States, to assist deceased children who were caught in a cycle of pain. Little did they know they would eventually begin attracting the attention of extraterrestrials. It became obvious the ETs were also invested in the experiments and they would attempt to thwart the efforts of these three women. Silent Whispers will challenge readers' belief system and perhaps lead them to question the reality that surrounds them.

When the Prefects of Redmondis discover that their quick minds and quicker fingers hide secret potential, young thieves Wilt and Higgs find themselves unwilling recruits. Wilt’s ability to sink into others’ thoughts, knowing what action they will take before they do, is both a prized and dangerous gift.

The Nine Sisters of Redmondis have sensed a growing threat, and search for the one who can control the power of the blood within the stone. But even their sinister plots are nothing compared to the force that controls them.

As Wilt and Higgs rally their newfound weapons, they discover that the threat to their lives, and their reality, is much greater than they realise.

Offered by T.R.Thompson (author): To celebrate the release of book #2 of the series, I'm running 2 separate giveaways - 1 for each title. If you like it, please review. Thanks!

Description: Book #2 of The Wraith Cycle

Future and past entwined.

Despite the victory over Cantor Cortis, the dark power still spreads. Nightmare creatures are wiping out villages all along the southern edge of the wild Tangle forest, causing a stream of refugees to flow into the capital of Sontair in the hope of finding protection.

All who helped overthrow the Nine Sisters of Redmondis have been touched by what they experienced and those they lost. Dark visions sap Petron and Daemi’s strength even as they try to heal the rifts within Redmondis and forge a new path for the wielders, crafters and guards who make up its three main schools.

Wilt must enter the Tangle to seek out the source of the power that calls to him. Visions of the past seen through other eyes haunt his days, and he finds it harder and harder to resist the pull of his wraith form.

The Guardian is old and weak, and the Tangle is no longer secure…

AWAY by Kevin Clarke

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

Offered by Mylibrevs (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: This is the story of Brighton’s first season in the Premier League, but not from a purely footballing perspective. ‘Away’ captures the 6700 mile journey that myself and my 17 year old son Jacob embarked on to attend all 19 away fixtures.

Family fall outs, pre-nuptial agreements, standing and singing like the old days, teenage angst, the free counselling of radio phone in’s, the relationship between Father and Son and of course the eternal question, will we stay up?

‘Away’ also opens up the Pandora’s Box of footballs biggest kept secret - supporting 2 teams.

Are you a football fan? Are you a true football fan?
Having a team isn’t enough….
Do you feel physical gut wrenching pain when your team loses?
Does a last minute winning goal render you incapable of controlling body and mind as you spiral into an ecstasy normally only reserved for carnal pleasure or substance abuse?
Do you go AWAY…?

This is a fictionalised account of a real Polish family and their harrowing experience.

Description: “KA-E-RO-U is a testimony to the human spirit that bridges differences and overcomes divisions, so different from the spirit that prevailed in the 1930s and 1940s and sent our grandparents and parents to war.”—Elaine Gerbert, University of Kansas, translator of Edogawa Ranpo’s Strange Tale of Panorama Island

“In Japan...everywhere...red strings tie all people we meet together. Some strings are weak. Some have tangles. Some strong.”—KAEROU Time to Go Home

Meryl—Vietnam War widow—misses her grown son, feels left out after her father’s recent marriage. A WWII Japanese flag falls into her hands. The gentle push of a love-struck professor starts her adventure—take the flag home. From the neon of Osaka, to the ancient capital Nara, to the forests of Akita, the trail follows a newspaper reporter, factory manager, ikebana teacher, a Matagi hunter and winds through Japanese culture, past and present. A story of shared humanity and love “in the simplest things.”

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by earlbot88 (author): Get one of 100 copies available of this galaxy spanning space opera.

Description: The caretakers of humanity, the Idrix, are destroyed by an unknown force, breaking down the order that had dominated the galaxy for nearly a millennium.

Eidi is a unique, precognitive student, who lives on the divided planet of Luska and knows that their future is full of death and destruction, but can she stop it?

Sreiwa is a spy and assassin for a fanatical sect who helped enable an invasion of her own planet of Luska and becomes a pawn in the deadly intrigue of a Byzantine and brutal culture.

Sellen is an Idrix soldier who escaped the destruction of his fleet only to find himself in a jungle hellscape where his only salvation is in the form of a sworn enemy.

Cigva is an enigmatic AI who joins Eidi to struggle against mind-controlling horrors, nightmare simians, deadly parasites, and a surprising, tyrannical foe from her home planet of Luska.

But the real danger lies in the showdown that is taking place between a long-dormant alien race called the Spearfinger, and the anti-alien, god-like Eth, where the ramifications of their confrontation could decide the future of the galaxy and the direction of humanity.

A meditation on grief and mourning, Coronach is a tribute to Fiona and Isla, about finding a way forward in the life - part two - that continues after their sudden and untimely loss and about the hope and renewal his young son brought the author in the bleakest of times.

The Road to Vermilion Lake by Vic Cavalli (Harvard Square Editions)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by VicCavalli (author): Enter to win one of twenty eBook (PDF & MOBI format) copies of The Road to Vermilion Lake.

This novel has been reviewed in professional journals, but I am especially interested in the honest reactions of a broader general readership.

I hope you find the book interesting and that you will post a review.

All the best.

Vic Cavalli

Description: "The novel tells the story of . . . Thomas Neal Tems, a blaster's assistant and first-aid attendant who lives and works on a construction site beside a glorious, remote lake. The site is being developed by a Swiss company into an ecologically friendly village, and Thomas begins a romance with the talented and imaginative architect who designed the site, a devout Catholic. The world that the characters must navigate, however, is decidedly not a romantic one. It is marked by painful past experiences, dysfunctional families, tragic accidents, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, all of which seem to derive from an inability to reach beyond the superficiality of existence. And yet, this is a world of second chances, for those who desire to change their imaginative perspective, to seek a sense of depth and enchantment that is deeply embedded in the tangible world, particularly in the body and in the natural world, as well as in the creative world of contemplative thought.”

30 Years Behind Bars: "My Life and Times Running the British Pub" by Malcolm Mant

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

Offered by Mylibrevs (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: I am not a famous person. I have not been to the moon, won the F.A. Cup or murdered anyone. I'm not even well known in my block of flats, where I now reside. But, for thirty years my view of life was from behind a ramp, that most British of institutions, serving people short and tall, black and white, good and evil, funny and sad, mundane and mad. My primary experience of this world has been shaped and influenced by alcohol through drinking it, selling it and observing thousands of others being affected by it in their own peculiar fashion. Most publicans are too thick, too busy or too pissed to do this, so it's a viewpoint that hasn't yet been observed and a book that hasn't yet been read. Anyone who has worked or drank at any point in any Great British pub, will find something in here that they will recognise and relate to. It's my story of 30 Years Behind Bars.

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

Offered by AppelJacobM (author): PDF sent by author. Please consider adding this book and my other volumes to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: On the outside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a pillar of the community: the youngest division chief at his hospital, a model son to his elderly parents, fiercely devoted to his wife and two young daughters. On the inside, Dr. Jeremy Balint is a high-functioning sociopath—a man who truly believes himself to stand above the ethical norms of society. As long as life treats him well, Balint has no cause to harm others. When life treats him poorly, he reveals the depths of his cold-blooded depravity.

At a cultural moment when the media bombards us with images of so-called sociopaths who strive for good and criminals redeemed by repentance,The Mask of Sanity offers an antidote to implausible tales of evil gone right. In contrast to fictional predecessors like Dostoyevesky's Raskolnikov and Camus' Mersault, Dr. Balint is a man who already has it all —and will do everything in his power, no matter how immoral, to keep what he has.

Description: LITERARY SHORT STORY COLLECTION: The frustrations of romantic love in its various guises—a domineering kindergarten teacher for a dashing artificial foliage designer, a suicidal physicist for his star student, a dialysis patient at a sleep-away camp for the camp owner’s daughter—provide the common theme for the stories in Jacob M. Appel’s seventh collection. We meet a psychiatrist dabbling with infidelity during a crisis in which rain turns into truth serum, a Finnish-American soldier charged with facilitating his commanding officer’s extra-marital affair, and a couple transporting a wealthy, “locked-in” patient across the Piedmont to his new nursing home. Appel’s literary short fiction offers a quirky window into the pangs and promise of love.

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

Offered by beckybanks (author): Hello! :0)
My name is Becky Banks, I'm an indie author and just back from maternity leave. I'm giving away a plethora of books to get the word out again.

Description: It’s been two years since Cason McPherson watched his best friend die in his arms. With shrapnel in his hip and a war behind him, he keeps focused on building a civilian life and not on what he wants most: the woman of his dreams, Savannah. If only she’d stop bringing up topics he has to keep secrets about.

Savannah Sparling has no time for baggage, and Cason McPherson brought home a matching set in scathing green—with a carry-on duffel bag full of lies. He’s the childhood friend who enlisted with her brother. He came home, and her brother didn’t.

Balancing work with demanding clients while fulfilling a personal vendetta against Cason consumes Savannah’s already full schedule—until a series of unstoppable events leads to a collision between Savannah’s work and personal lives. Her carefully structured path in the world is crushed, her own blood is spilled, and passion between her and an unlikely bedfellow ignite.

Cason and Savannah find the only the people strong enough to save them from themselves is each other. But will either one of them accept the help—and the love—that’s offered?

The Stars Too Can Die of Sadness by Christopher Walker (Closely Observed Literature)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by soylentgreen23 (author): I am a writer and English teacher living in the south of Poland. My latest book, 'The Stars Too Can Die of Sadness', is a long novella, running to about 150 words. It mixes science fiction elements into a modern narrative. I have the pdf version of the book to distribute - you should be able to transfer the file to your Kindle if you wish to read it that way, but unfortunately experience has taught me that if you have any problems, I won't be able to help as much as I'd like.

If you could post a review of the book on Amazon, LibraryThing, and perhaps also Goodreads, I'd really appreciate it. To avoid having your account blocked by Amazon, it'd also be useful to include the text - "I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review" - before the review itself.

Thank you all for your interest and support - I've been a member of LT since the very earliest days, and I'm still so happy to be a part of this wonderful community.

Description: The girl lives with her mother and father on a small farm near the town. She enjoys looking up at the stars at night with her father, and on Sundays she travels to the church in town with her mother to listen to the priest’s sermon. Her life is simple yet idyllic, untouched by the outside world.

But all that changes when war breaks out in Europe and father leaves to fight with the other men. Mother becomes distant, fearful that they have been left alone forever. The girl feels alone, uncertain of what the future holds.

What is the girl to do? What can she do - she is but a girl. She too wishes to fight... but when she does, the consequences are shattering. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Is He Prince Charming? by Harma-Mae Smit (Amrah Publishing House)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by laapricot (author): Please request if you can review for Amazon or Goodreads! PDF will be sent by author. Thanks, I appreciate your feedback so much!

Description: How charming is Prince Charming?

The prince is an irresponsible flirt who won’t settle down. The king needs an heir who will grow up and take care of the kingdom. What’s the solution? A royal ball, of course.

Despite everyone's doubts, the prince does meet a girl who’s different from all the others. But what’s this? A wicked stepmother, and several stepsisters? If there’s a girl who can ever learn to put up with the prince’s self-centeredness, her past may ruin this romance—and the ball!—before anyone gets a fairytale ending.

4.3 stars on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Prince-Charming...

5 stars at Readers' Favorite:
"Harma-Mae Smit's Is He Prince Charming? Retelling Cinderella is a refreshing new look at the popular fairy tale. The author weaves a compelling story, loosely reminiscent of the original Cinderella story. By including the prince's sister as the narrator, the reader gets an outside glimpse of both the prince and the charming Cinderella character (Vasilisa). Neither one is perfect... Like all good fairy tales, this one makes us look more closely at ourselves. Well done!"

Longevity by Rolf Margenau (Frogworks Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by rolfmarg (author): Longevity is my fifth novel, just published and in need of reviews on Amazon. There's more about me here: https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0058EFBKM
Readers at LibraryThing have been very generous with their reviews in the past and I hope you will enjoy Longevity. It's a medical/thriller/suspense novel and, although there's murder and mayhem, it's written somewhat tongue in cheek. Not serious satire, but the torture scene does employ common household items. If you need the book in a form other than .mobi, ask me at rolf(at) frogworks followed by".com" Enjoy the read!

Description: In Longevity, Lucy Mendoza leads a team of scientists at the Prendergast Foundation who are testing an enzyme that might extend our lives by thirty years. For several reasons, the federal government, a major pharmaceutical company, and a billionaire investor have no qualms about eliminating Lucy to ensure that project will fail. Her former lover Grant Duran, an ex-Marine special ops officer who’s lost a hand and is now a molecular biologist, thwarts the first attempt on her life. As dead bodies accumulate and Lucy and Grant struggle to defend themselves, they begin to wonder whether the Longevity project should survive.

Tempus Interruptus: Dwarves in Space by SE 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): Get invested into the Dwarves in Space universe before the book drops on February 28th.

Description: Time’s unraveling across the galaxy and the only hope are two people who’d rather kill each other than work together.

Drake Bane is a low-class smuggler and general grit in the galaxy’s wheels of progress. He finds himself on the wrong side of a goblin mob boss and gets the choice to either steal an ancient relic or test space decompression up close. When his ship’s impounded as collateral he’s left to sneak his way onto a ship without bothering to get to know the captain or its cast of interesting characters. Too bad or he’d have skipped right past and saved himself a major headache.

Captain Variel Tuffman’s got her own secrets which she’s not about to share with a smuggler that lied his way onto her ship. All she wants is to ditch the guy before the couple on her ship who think they’re on a cruise vacation catch on. It all goes wibbly wobbly when an ancient artifact impales itself onto her hand and she can’t get it off. The crew is sent careening across the galaxy on the run from a bunch of species’ militaries and the dwarven antiquities board. At the heart of it all is a hole in the galaxy that no one’s ever seen before or can explain and it’s getting bigger. When the captain starts speaking gibberish and snaps in and out of comas, their only hope may be the relic jammed in her hand.
