Description: In a world rife with swords, knights, and magic, evil hides in plain sight.
Lilly, the daughter of a much-revered Earl, lives a seemingly normal existence… on the surface. But behind the shroud of her status lies a secret – one that will put her at odds with others who wear the Mark of Magic proudly and those whom will bring her harm.
When given the opportunity to learn the truth about her heritage and her lack of magic, she flees her home, naïve to the danger she’ll soon face. With only a horse and an enchanted pendant to guide her, her perilous journey begins, but as the danger rises, she finds an unlikely ally in Andre, a man on the run from his own troubles.
Can they work together to root out the answers she seeks or could the truth be far worse than she could have imagined?

Nerve Damage by J.L. Myers

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by jlmyers (author): In exchange for a copy of Nerve Damage, my pre-published psychological thriller, I'd be so grateful for a review on Amazon and Goodreads once the book is published. The eBook is available in the following formats: Mobi, ePub. Winners will be emailed a download link.

Description: A fatal car crash. The sole survivor. And the dark hooded stranger that wants her dead.

When a terrible accident—not accident—stole my parents’ lives, my whole perfect life changed. My memories are hazy, and there are scars on my wrists. I’ve been locked away for my own protection…until I prove my sanity, until I lie. There was no hooded figure on the road that day, no one standing over me as I lay paralyzed watching my parents burn.

I am Cassidy Lockheart…20-year-old orphan.

Determined to free my caged mind, I find myself far away on an unexpected trip to help return my forgotten past. The snow was part of my life before, but now it’s like a blank slate, until an avalanche changes everything. But I’m not alone. These other ‘lucky’ trip winners may not be the strangers they pretend to be. And my hooded attacker…I see him everywhere.

Is this real? Or delusion caused by head trauma?

Either way, I’m being watched. I can sense it. I can feel it. Someone is after me; maybe they’re after us all. The avalanche was no accident. It was staged to deliver us to this abandoned place. A place where the walls whisper dark secrets of a sinister past…a past no one can escape. Trapped, this snow won’t let up…it won’t let us leave. My lost memories hold clues, but they’re buried so deep, polluted and twisted in my every waking nightmare. What is real? I don’t have the answers. But I need them. Time is ticking and if I don’t figure this all out soon it will be too late.

The past is coming for us all…and it wants blood.

Twin Time by Olga Werby (CreateSpace)

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): "Twin Time" received a 5-star rating from Readers' Favorite and has a near perfect rating on Amazon. The story is currently competing among other science fiction coming of age stories. I'm hoping to get this book into the hands of a few more readers this summer. If you like the story, please leave a review. Thank you for reading!

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.

5 Stars Readers' Favorite: Twin Time is a refreshing time travel-themed story with its vivid pre-revolution, 20th century Russia background, and character-driven plot. This is a great read for YA and adult readers. — Readers' Favorite

2017 San Francisco Book Festival: Twin Time awarded honorable mention in general fiction.

5 Stars from Amazon Customer: I really enjoyed the book! It's a fascinating and enchanting story that straddles time. It keeps surprising you! In addition, it paints a vivid picture of pre-revolution Russia. I had a hard time putting the book down, and was definitely in suspense until the final pages. Great read!

"This is the best book I have ever read!!!
So many tangles and surprise twists you won't want to put it down."


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

"Your writing and imagination are fantastic. I really love the development of your characters and find Hunter very intriguing. Your books are the whole package - great story lines, beautiful character development, awesome setting descriptions. You have definitely made it onto my top author list! " Beta 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 possibly remember.

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M Appel (The Permanent 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): PDFs directly from the author.

Please consider reviewing on LibraryThing and/or Amazon and also please add to your list of books on LibraryThing.

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.

Truth in Ruins by John Edward Lawson (Raw Dog Screaming Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): Given that Lawson is one of the founders of the bizarro genre we are giving away 100 ebook copies every month to raise awareness for our line of bizarro books. If you're unfamiliar with bizarro this could be a good entry point to the genre! Thank you for your interest.

Description: Through a series of dark bizarro adventures Truth in Ruins chronicles the world’s dying gasps. Sneak into the space where flesh is erased and sanity unspools, where casual brutality rules and hilarity ensues. Here flesh is as malleable as one’s morals, everyone is a serial killer, and one must always keep a shotgun at the ready to fend off trolls and kobalds. You have been warned…

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT TRUTH IN RUINS:

"Truth in Ruins by John Lawson was more enjoyable and exciting for me, though perhaps I'm biased by my fascination with ethical apocalypses and human atavism in all its forms. Really exciting stuff that could be very appealing to crossover audiences."
-Garret Cook, author of Murderland and Archelon Ranch

"John Edward Lawson's Truth in Ruins is a violent look at sex, death, and survival in a post-Apocalyptic America, one part Sarah Kane and one part Film Noir."
-JoSelle Vanderhooft for The Pedestal Magazine

"John Edward Lawson's Truth in Ruins is one of the most hyperbolic entries in the entire anthology. In Lawson's grim future humanity is divided into serial killers and profilers, with genetically engineered 'Humanzees' poised to take over after humanity's failure. It's self-consciously, cartoonishly, uber-violent, and narrative chunks are jammed together in ways that emphasize their incongruities, like a movie made of nothing but jump cuts. I sort of liked it, although I had to skim over some stomach-turning bits."

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

Offered by BrandonDavisJennings (author): This is an Ebook giveaway. I can send you an EPUB, MOBI or PDF.

Description: For Derrick “Vez” Vezcheck, dwell time – the period at home between deployments – is a different kind of battle. Swap enemies for civilian expectations and you get a sense of what Vez is up against: a patient and loving wife who’ll stick by him no matter what, a young daughter who’s a little too OK with seeing dad every six months, and a community that’s quick to thank him for his service, even if he himself has long forgotten what he’s fighting for.

In Battle Rattle, Brandon Davis Jennings’ darkly comic and all-too-real follow-up to 2015’s award-winning novella Waiting for the Enemy, the war is never out of sight and definitely never out of mind. With redeployment looming and everyone around him falling apart, Vez must choose between making things right at home and utterly destroying everything in his path—before it gets decided for him.

Description: A brilliant plastic surgeon.
A computer guru with a disturbing past.
A fireman whose disfiguring burns ignite a chain of long buried secrets.

What would you do if you woke up one day looking like a completely different person? After Dr. Thea Donovan performs reconstructive facial surgery on severely injured fireman Malcolm Dean, she is ecstatic with the results. The Reflesh procedure she pioneered with software guru Erik Sorenson far exceeds her expectations. There’s just one problem: the patient doesn’t agree. In fact, the surgery altered his appearance to such an extent that it seems to have changed his personality from a caring, bereaved father and husband, to a man with psychopathic tendencies.

Then when a series of unsolved murders point toward Malcolm Dean Thea must confront the possibility that she has created a killer. And as she uncovers evidence to prove her patient’s innocence, she inadvertently reveals a thirty year old murder mystery.

Steel Victory by J.L. Gribble (Dog Star Books)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): The latest installment of this series is currently available through the Early Reviewer program. For those who are interested in providing an early review, but hesitate because they are unfamiliar with the series, we are providing the first two books in the series through the Member Giveaway feature.

Description: Steel Empires Book 1: Enter Limani

One hundred years ago, the vampire Victory retired from a centuries-long mercenary career. She settled in Limani, the independent city-state acting as a neutral zone between the British and Roman colonies on the New Continent.

Twenty years ago, Victory adopted a human baby girl, who soon showed signs of magical ability.

Today, Victory is a city councilwoman, balancing the human and supernatural populations within Limani. Her daughter Toria is a warrior-mage, balancing life as an apprentice mercenary with college chemistry courses.

Tomorrow, the Roman Empire invades.

What are they saying about Steel Victory

"The innovative combination of genres is appealing, and Gribble's multiple story lines—invasion, anti-creature bias, and intercity politics—mesh very well together….This is a solid first effort that sets the stage for more installments in an intriguing world with complex characters."
—Publishers Weekly

"A deviously raucous romp through a modern world filled with were-creatures, mercenaries, and Victory—a fanged kickass heroine who must squelch her adopted city's political divisiveness before the Roman Empire can break down the proverbial gates and tear her world apart."
—Diana Dru Botsford, author Four Dragons and The Drift

"Strong characters rule in this unique debut. Magic, murder, and mayhem wrapped up in one package—definitely my type of book!"

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by CavanaughBardo (author): We're the authors and are offering 100 copies of this book in mobi or epub format. We would appreciate it if you kindly leave a review.

Description: Some detours are simply irresistible.

When Brigit’s big advertising client offers a bonus of an all-expenses paid Park City ski trip, it sounds perfect, and she’s sure she can handle a “girls' vacation” with the three high-spirited and provocative account managers who liked to "mix it up." What she didn't plan was an accident on a steep run that forces Alex, a handsome ski patrolman, to rescue her off a dangerous run. Snowed in, the two spend a funny, sweet and confessional night waiting for the storm to pass. But as the evening unfolds, both realize that the "accident" is actually a once-in-a-lifetime encounter, revealing hidden parts of each other they have to choose whether to explore.

What people are saying about "Snow Vixens"
"I couldn't put this book down - it was a real gem and I had no idea what was in store for me when I picked it up. I am completely comfortable recommending this above 5 star read, it was amazing - if you love Anais Nin or Colette you will love this book!"

"Snow Vixens" isn't fiction, it's catharsis. Read it; throw yourself back on your bed, smile, stretch and sigh. Whisper, "I needed that." That's right, we all did."

Go Love by Michael Gills (Raw Dog Screaming Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by DogStarBooks (publisher): The follow-up novel in Michael Gills' Go Love quartet, Emergency Instructions, is now available in the early reviewer program. Therefore we are providing the first book here for anybody who wants to be familiar with the series before reading the latest installment. Thank you for your interest!

Description: Josephine Stepwell Harvell is certainly not lucky in love; from Buddy Washer, the Arizona mistake, who got her pregnant and then got arrested trying to smuggle weed in the belly of a Santa Claus suit, to O.W., a truck driving brawler who pawns everything including her sewing machine to cover bets, Josephine knows that love isn’t easy. Go Love's muddy relationships finally twist together amidst the weirdness of a southern funeral in Lonoke, Arkansas, a place where housewives string cottonmouth water moccasins from tree limbs to tease out rain, or to make a man impotent for cheating. Anything at all's possible in such a place. Just as the African women shout out during the funeral, go love is the command the novel's inhabitants must finally live by, even when life offers up a truckload of reasons to do the contrary. Even if it kills us—go love.

What They're Saying About Go Love

"Michael Gills' vivid, headstrong characters brim with desire, blame, and—most of all—rich storytelling at its heartiest. Gills writes the saga of the Stepwells with such breadth and depth that their lives seem both historic and intimate. Go Love is a murderous, tender, swaggering tale that, in the end, is an unwavering argument in favor of love—the uncompromising variety—and Gills is absolutely convincing."
—Julianna Baggott, author of Girl Talk

"We already know Michael Gills is one of America's best short story writers, but with the publication of his first novel Gills now shows himself to be one of our best novelists as well. Worthy of comparison to Faulkner and O'Connor, this is a great novel by a great writer."
—Eric Miles Williamson, author of 14 Fictional Positions and Welcome to Oakland

"…incredibly complex…"
—Deseret News

"Go Love, a debut novel by Michael Gills, offers a fresh perspective on the struggle to love and to be worthy of love, the impossibility and the necessity of loving."
—PsychologyToday.com

SUSPECT: A Murder Mystery by Angel Berry

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by A.Berry (author): Pdf ebook

Description: A robbery gone wrong?

The murder of a jewelry store owner is committed under cover of darkness. Two of his assailants, residents of the Sanctuary, a nearby homeless shelter, are found laying dead beside him.

And on a crisp November day, a deaf, intellectually disabled young woman who saw the killer's face is convinced that she is being stalked by a murderer.

As the police investigate, the search for Jerry, a third accomplice on the run, turns up with no leads.

But Mary Ann Hernandez, the director of the Sanctuary, accuses Alphonso's son, Tommy, of having ties to the two men found murdered near his father, and when Tommy doesn't disclose all he knows about his father's death and then lies about his alibi, he becomes a prime suspect.

The question is: Who's the culprit?

Traveling in Scandinavia by Klaava Media (Klaava Media)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by Klaava (publisher): Chapters from our travel books that are Scandinavia related.

Description: Few regions of the world have been praised as frequently as North Europe in recent years. One day the news is all about the best work-life balance in the world (Denmark), the other day we hear about the best school system in the world (Finland), the happiest nation of the world (Norway), or the best country for women to live in (Sweden).

This book focuses on the northernmost countries in Scandinavia: Finland, Norway and Sweden. If you want to discover what the secret sauce of those nations is, this is a good place to start. We have selected chapters from travel guidebooks, cultural guides and even from a cookbook to show you some of the many tourist sights and cultural curiosities of the North. Authors Kim Anton, Erin Dahl, Ari Hakkarainen, Kari Ojala, Russell Snyder and Soile Varis have contributed sections from their books to this collection.

The countries are large and varying in geography: everything from the sea, archipelago, vast forests, mountains, fells, lakes, and fjords to marshlands establish the natural environment. Most people live in capital cities and regional centers, leaving the great outdoors wilderness for all of us to experience.

Each country has its own language and culture. Swedish, however, is the common language for these countries. Today, English is widely understood everywhere in the Nordic countries as the school system has been teaching foreign languages (often multiple) for decades. Cultural differences between Nordic nations are obvious, but from traveler’s point of view not dramatic. Cultural differences between Nordic and other European nations, however, can be surprisingly wide, but that’s where a guidebook can help.

Here is a taste of Scandinavia for you to explore at the comfort of your reading nook – perhaps before heading out to the North yourself. As the selection of writings show, there are plenty of destinations to see and things to do: city life, mountain biking, fishing in pristine rivers, camping, island hopping, road touring, Arctic adventures, or hiking in the wilderness. If something is missing, Finns will invent it (e.g. wife carrying competition), Swedes will sell it to the world (e.g. entire country available on Airbnb), and Norwegians will win the cross-country skiing world championship (again).

The Mandate of Heaven by Rob Flanigan (L.N. Smith Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by L.N.Smith (publisher): This pre-release giveaway by the author and publisher is intended for encouraging early reviews.

Description: (Available formats for review copies: epub and mobi. Release will include paperback.)

When an unknown American author (Bert) is silenced and robbed of his works by an official of the Chinese government, the strength of his ideas wins him a Chinese ally and gives him a chance to reclaim what is rightfully his. . . . But will he, when the future of a better generation is at stake?

Join Bert, as he interferes in the lives of two Chinese children and disrupts America's political order, in this East versus West farce.

The Mandate of Heaven is an ancient Chinese belief that a government's authority is divinely granted and that this authority lasts only for as long as the leadership rules with virtue. Thus, when the ruling classes become greedy, corrupt, and immoral, it is the right of the people - or Mother Nature - to rise up and remove them from power, thus proving they've lost the Mandate of Heaven.

"Capitol Hill is a farm league for K Street." - U.S. Representative Jim Cooper, as quoted in Republic, Lost, by Lawrence Lessig

In the future, Washington's K Street acquires an annex, called K Street South, located in Central Florida. Here, a sovereign sanctuary develops (free of the ubiquitous surveillance equipment that has made clandestine meetings so difficult to hide), where lobbyists can broker allegiances between politicians and their wealthy donors in the privacy and luxury they feel they deserve. So brazen is their disregard for anything but power and the almighty dollar that it doesn't even matter to them that this K Street South is the creation of the Chinese Communist Party.

"Politicians play by the rules we set for them. When the rules are ridiculous, so are the outcomes." - Bert

WHERE'S THE PUBLIC OUTCRY? . . . The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private, anonymously-funded organization that's been undermining free and fair elections in the U.S. for thirty years. Its allowed existence has been equivalent to permitting a hostile foreign power to operate openly on American soil. . . . Such is the allegation made in the satirical work, The Mandate of Heaven, which compares the Democratic and Republican Parties (with their colluded stranglehold on power) to the Communist Party of China. The result is a rollicking story, both serious and silly, that reads like a cross between Fahrenheit 451, Mary Poppins, and 30 Rock . . . in other words, a portrayal of America's New Normal.

London Road: Linked Stories by Tessa Smith McGovern (eChook Digital)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by TessaSmithMcGovern: GOLD MEDAL WINNER 2012 eLIT AWARDS, AMAZON BEST-SELLER

On the morning of her release from prison, the hottest day on record in England, Janice Bailey makes her way to a boarding house in London, and discovers a bizarre new world.

This moving collection of linked short stories begins with 'When Janice Bailey Walked', an award-winning story first published in the Connecticut Review, and continues with six more stories that take place on a single day, as told by the eccentric residents of Number 17, London Road, thus illuminating a little-known side of the most beautiful city in Europe.

Praise for LONDON ROAD: LINKED STORIES:

"...reminiscent of the writer who appears in one of the stories: the great Katherine Mansfield."

Cynthia Rogerson, winner, V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize for a Short Story, 2008, UK

KIRKUS REVIEWS: In seven short stories, residents of a London boardinghouse reach moments of clarity. On London Road, lined with scruffy shops, stands No. 17, a detached red-brick Victorian that's been turned into a boardinghouse. Its residents tend toward hard luck and desperation: Janice is just out of prison; Mandy is on probation; Bitty has a good education, but is scarred by her mother's frequent abandonments; and Isobel is mentally unstable. Nora, the landlady, writes romance novels but has experienced little romance herself, and her daughter, Anna, is disgusted by Isobel's outbursts.
Their interconnected stories take place on a day of unusually hot weather, and focus on one resident at a time, with Janice's story told in two parts. In each, characters have a chance to make a leap of faith in other people, or in the future. In "The Walls of Buckingham Palace," for example, Nora--who adores the queen--reflects on an uneasy encounter with Len, her local pub's new landlord, who drank too much and frightened her off: "But every night since, her sleep had been disturbed by longings she thought had long since been vanquished." It takes queenlike courage for her to return to the pub, where she finds that Len is apologetic, sincere, and kind. Pointing to a framed photograph of the queen, he remarks, "You remind me of her, you do"; nothing, of course, could better gain her trust and win her over.
Though spare and fast-paced, McGovern's (Cocktails for Book Lovers, 2014, etc.) tales evoke entire biographies. She focuses on illuminative details and subtle, turning-point moments, as when Mandy, a young woman on probation, reacts to her mandatory book group's reading of Katherine Mansfield's 1922 short story "The Garden Party." It stokes her resentment, as she doesn't even know if people still give garden parties. Mandy makes plans to shoplift again, but something about the book group leader's hopefulness and the invitation to give her honest opinion sparks her determination to win--maybe a literary argument, or maybe more chocolate wafers. Tales with subtle, positive but never saccharine transformations that feel fully earned."

"Jubilee Year takes a look at what might happen if powerful people attempt to harness a threat from outer space and use it for their own ends.

The underlying philosophy is great, the science is okay and the writing style is often brilliant." - Mike Dixon, official review, Readers' Favorite

Description: For fans of Red Rising, The Atlantis Gene, and Lucifer's Hammer

Bored with life as a farm hand, Storm accepts a request made by a local astronomer to be a messenger boy. Little does he know his world will be blown apart when he reaches his destination in the capital. Intercepted then befriended by a strange giant of a man ensconced under the nation's government buildings, he is told the awful truth—the world has just months before it falls under the magnetic pull of the Dark Star, the invisible binary twin of the Sun.

Storm learns that a resulting pole shift is about to change the face of the planet. But he also learns the Dark Star does not mean the end of all life on Earth. The powerful elites know this too and have already set into action plans to further their own ends.

To survive the coming catastrophe, Storm, his family, and his friends must negotiate the increasingly brutal security forces as well as teams of assassins acting for the elites. Improbable as it seems, survival is possible, so long as they are ready to fight...

The elites make use of advanced technologies to hide the intruder from outer space until they are safe in their sanctuaries. They have created distractions and chaos to control the growing unrest: They have triggered long planned for global conflict and economic collapse, and they have prepared many prison camps. The world as Storm knew it will never be the same again, but he is already adapting and changing...

***** 5 Stars "...well-written, full of action, and interesting read about the clash of modern and ancient social codes of Japan. There is more than the duality of her name and O'Neill does a great job illustrating Yayoi's conflict when she must choose between duty and love." - author - Carol P. Roman (named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012).

Description: For fans of slow building, intense, and compelling psychological thrillers.

Rock chick Yayoi appears to have it all. She has fame, fortune, and a movie-star husband. But inside she feels only the vacuum she desperately needs to fill.

Viciously assaulted while on a film shoot in New Zealand, she flees her husband aided by Bill a young corporate attorney. Furious, her husband employs two mercenaries to pursue the pair through the wilds of the East coast. Unaware of the deadly nature of the chase, the two fugitives quickly form a bond that develops into a heated and desperate romance. While Bill finds himself embroiled in her battle, Yayoi must come to terms with her past or be consumed by it.

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

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

Mongrel is a short tale from the novel Horror Classics

SIMONE by Angel Berry

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by A.Berry (publisher): Pdf ebook

Description: In the year 1930, the community of Potluck, Louisiana is one of divided lines - not of black and white, but of the haves and the have-nots. Of the residents of Potluck is one Simone Tout, a young woman of twenty years born an only child to a father who started the town school and a mother, Berta, who is proudly employed as a cook in the mayor's kitchen.

Two men - one you love, one you hate.

Georges Andrieux, the handsome, well-educated son of the mayor, is a man that Simone despises - a man who is more than aggressive in his determination to make Simone his wife. Berta of course is thrilled, but against her mother's wishes the headstrong Simone has plans of her own in the form of Cotton Neal, a young man who Berta considers as nothing more than a common thug, jailbird, and bootlegger from the wrong side of the tracks.

"Ain't nothing but a bunch of wild ass negros up in them hills..."

But to Simone, Cotton is the air she breathes - her future husband and the love of her life.

While Simone and Cotton prepare to run away together, the owner of a local opium den is found floating face down in the river. When Cotton is blamed for the murder he disappears, and while law enforcement work vigilantly to apprehend him, Simone is left to endure Georges' bitter, violent form of jealousy. When he threatens to reveal Cotton's whereabouts, Simone finally falls into his trap as he uses blackmail as a form of revenge.

Toni...

You run away only to have your car break down on the side of the road. You accidentally murder the mother of a good samaritan...

The events that follow will change the lives of each woman forever.

Book contains adult themes

Cracking Up : A Novel by Joan Komlosy

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by joankomlosy (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: Jools Holland: "Entertaining and well-written".
Sir Ranulph Fiennes: "Joan's matter-of-fact lively style of writing, spiced with the mention of household names from the rock and pop world, is sure to entertain".

'Cracking Up' is loosely based on the real-life experiences of Joan Komlosy.

For Lily Francis, coming to terms with a broken marriage, children going their separate ways and the dole queue beckoning is hard enough. But when the landlords want the flat she's been renting for 25 years - the only stable thing in her life - the term 'midlife crisis' takes on a whole new meaning.

Now a reluctant 'born again singleton' Lily, an impoverished antique dealer and struggling freelance journalist begins to rebuild her life and attempts to start again. If only her once successful husband hadn't dragged out the divorce she would have been self-supportive and the family silver might not have ended up in Bermondsey market.

'Cracking Up' is humorous, touching and entertaining and will appeal to anyone male or female, who has had to start again from the bottom - older, alone and flat broke - there are many out there.

Description: "It's often said that we all have a novel in us. Or at least, a tabloid exposé. Who the hell has a piano concerto in them, and what's more, what kind of surgery is required to remove it without causing serious trauma to the patient? This is the story of the surgery and the trauma." Matthew Halligan is a washed-up journalist and jobbing musician. When contacted by a childhood music teacher who is now in prison, he tells how he got his first opus from brain to page to stage, while eking out an existence as a jazz pianist round the bazaars. A tale of sex'n'violins, tricky woodwind passages, prison choirs and preposterous conductors. Well, one preposterous conductor in particular, who makes such merry hell of the proceedings that thoughts turn murderous. . . Warning: if you have romantic notions about the elegance, charm and intelligence of musicians, pour yourself a stiff drink before proceeding. . . They usually do.

Description: "I highly recommend this novel and author to readers who love Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, and traditional Regency romances!" - Austenesque Reviews

A fun confection with a romantic spirit and droll English characters.

‘You forget yourself, your lordship. You have no rights to allow or disallow anything I may choose to do. You have, in fact, no claim over me whatsoever – a circumstance for which I thank the Lord on a daily basis! I am neither your ward nor your dependent, and I will not allow you to talk to me in that odiously overbearing fashion!'

High-spirited Artemisia Grantley, niece of the Duke of Wentworth, has never made any attempt to conform to the feminine ideal expected of a lady of quality, nor has she ever had the benefit of an unfavourable opinion formed against her. But when the Marquess of Chysm enters her life, it seems to her that his lordship is always at hand to witness her shortcomings and bring them to her attention, inciting her temper and leaving her feeling inexplicably flustered.

As she reluctantly embarks upon her first London Season, a scandalous family secret and a conspiracy that stretches all the way to Napoleonic France threaten to entangle her with the one person she could happily throttle.

Soldier On by J.D. Wynne (Page Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by bkeane30: Enter to win free ebook. Soldier On is a realistic romance novel that anyone can relate too. Laugh, cry and connect to these very real characters.

Description: Take a walk in Army reservist Molly McKinney's boots as she serves our country in Afghanistan and confronts a minefield of interpersonal relationships. Men and women from all walks of life are thrown together on what they call the “rock" or "Hell on earth." The story follows Molly as she adjusts to her new reality of living in a combat zone, learns the ropes of prison life, and realizes the many complexities of war.
Born in Chicago, Molly barely out of her teens is an aspiring doctor who joined the Army Reserve pre-911, mainly to pay for medical school. She is a breath of fresh air in the hot, dusty, hell-hole the soldiers temporarily call home. Molly, with her battle buddy Osborne, a quirky seductress, work alongside active duty troops as MP’s (Military Police) stationed at a prison camp. The insurgents, assumed to have Taliban connections, some awaiting transit to Guantanamo Bay, often fall on the thin line between very scary and somewhat ridiculous.
Molly’s life becomes a rollercoaster of fear, passion, pain, and boredom as she guards captured insurgents and she soon realizes that she too is a prisoner of the desolate, and unbearably hot prison. Molly becomes drawn to a quick witted, shameless soldier named Spc. Shaw to get through the long and mundane days of the prison. As her feelings for Shaw grow so does her loathing for the insanely handsome, yet robotic, Sgt. Beck.
Sgt. Beck makes it clear on day one that Molly is unfit for the job. In his attempts to take her down he begins to see the true measure of her resilience, courage, determination and fiery temper. As Molly battles her 12-hour work schedule, sleep deprivation, camel spiders and a host of other obstacles while living in a combat zone, Beck, who is sleeping with Molly’s friend, entrusts Molly with a more personal side of himself. As Beck guard lowers, so does Molly’s and their friendship becomes unbreakable. But when tragedy strikes Molly realizes that some people are not at all what they appear to be.

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Jon1975 (author): 10 pdf's of 'Living Dead Lovers' available. Do the right thing by leaving me a review @ all the places you consider worthy ;)

Description: Living Dead Lovers follows the life and times of famed psychic-medium, half-Romani gypsy, Valentina ‘Cabbage’ Moone, from her mute infancy trawling the roads of Europe to a fiery-tongued, hard-drinking, speed-loving clairvoyant with a complete disregard for human life, including her own of late…

Psychic-medium Cabbage brings forth more than she can chew with womanizing dead racing-car driver, Marty ‘Magma’ Molloy, who doesn’t want to give up the chase. A twisted love-affair never meant to be. Necrophilia: that’s what the sceptical call it. Romantics call it the yin-yang love between being and human being, light and, oh, so very dark.

And her guardian angel Mr. Brick Shithouse makes it even more complicated...

Balloon Animals by Jonathan Dunne (Jonathan Dunne)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Jon1975 (author): 10 pdf's of 'Balloon Animals' available. Please leave a review where you think worthy ;)

Description: BALLOON ANIMALS is a pilgrimage and road-trip of unusual dimensions.

Follow me, Jonny Rowe, on a wild goose-chase from Ireland to the USA with my American grandfather's remains in my red birthday balloon. 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.
