The Liars' Asylum by Jacob M. Appel (Black Lawrence 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 by author. Please consider adding this book and my other titles to your Librarything bookshelf, as this enables more giveaways in the future.

Description: 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.

Zebra Skin Shirt by Gregory Hill (Conundrum Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by GWHill (author): I'll send the ebook to you as an email attachment including these formats: PDF, MOBI, EPUB.

Description:
Zebra Skin Shirt Ranks with the best of Vonnegut's mind-benders, but with more laughs page-for-page.
—Zack Boddicker, Author of The Essential Carl Mahogany


Before the clocks stopped, Narwhal Slotterfield was a run-of-the-mill unethical amateur basketball referee. He blew his whistle, fudged the rules, and tried not to drive his girlfriend insane.

But then the clock thing happened and Narwhal got stuck at 7:23 PM in a diner in the middle of the Great Plains. Faced with an eternal now, where humans are as still as manikins, raindrops never reach the earth, and where there's a home-cooked meal in every country kitchen, Narwhal applies his sardonic officiating skills to the universe itself.

He reads his girlfriend's diary—a bad idea. Faced with some unsettling revelations, he decides to walk to Denver for some old-fashioned vigilante justice—a very bad idea. From there, things get strange: explosions, meteorological miracles, magic mushrooms, and a mysterious cavern.

The madness escalates until Narwhal is forced to make a call that could determine the fate of an entire civilization. Don't worry. He's the one wearing the Zebra Skin Shirt and he gets to make up the rules.

Absurd and surreal, without ever crossing the line into silliness, Zebra Skin Shirt is an excellent novel from an author that clearly understands the stupidity, chaos and madness of existence, and isn’t afraid to embrace it all and put it on the page.
—Cory Casciato, Suspect Press

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

Offered by martinmeadows (author): Receive a free ebook review copy (available in three formats: mobi, epub, and pdf) and post your honest thoughts on Amazon.com.

Description: How to Build Self-Discipline to Exercise: Discover Proven Strategies to Finally Get in Shape and Exercise on a Regular Basis for the Rest of Your LifeEverywhere you go, you see gyms, videos, and books about exercise, advertising how they can help you get in shape fast and easy. You've probably even put some money down before, vowing that THIS was the year you'd get in shape, lose that extra weight, and become the energetic person you know is hiding inside you. Unfortunately, life happens, and you fall into the habit of "I'll start tomorrow."Your motivation drops, and your self-discipline fails to push you through to achieve your goals. You begin to make excuses: you'll be really sore after working out, it's been too long since you've last exercised, you don't have willpower, your friends and family tell you to be happy with how you are, you think you're too weak, inflexible or otherwise unfit for exercise, and many more. There was that one time you started a program, but you couldn't keep up with the weekly or monthly goals, so you got frustrated and gave up.All of that has added up to make you think you're incapable of starting and continuing an exercise program. You're afraid you aren't mentally or physically strong enough, but still hold out the hope that someday a magic pill will change all that.The magic exists today, but it's not as easy or fast as swallowing a pill. However, it can be simple and enjoyable. How to Build Self-Discipline to Exercise is a concise, practical guidebook on how to introduce and keep exercise in your life. Inside, you'll learn: - why the most common type of motivation people use to exercise is usually ineffective (and which types of motivation are much stronger) - the wrong "P" that will lead you to giving up when you face obstacles - how to overcome procrastination and finally start exercising – including a slightly uncomfortable trick that will ensure you'll get plenty of exercise - how to find time to exercise despite a hectic schedule (and surprising math that shows you actually lose time when you don't make time for exercise) - practical tricks and tips to stay motivated forever, even when you encounter obstacles - how to enjoy exercise while still getting the most powerful benefits of it (hint: if your workout involves "work," it's not a good workout)- how to prevent injuries, improve recovery, and handle the inevitable muscle soreness so you stick to exercise even if your body acts against you - how to deal with other people, wrong expectations, and negativity (from both your surroundings and yourself in the form of self-criticism or self-doubt)When put together and acted upon, the six chapters in this book – supported by over 80 references to scientific studies and credible experts – will help you form a new habit and make one of the most important changes you'll ever make in your life.Apply for a review copy now and let's embark on the journey to learn how.

Description: Do you call yourself a writer, yet feel you’re a fraud because you’ve never finished anything, let alone achieved publication?

Is there a nagging voice inside your head telling you to give up because you’ll never nail this ‘writing thing?’

I was once you.

Within 52 Stories in 52 Weeks, you will find a culmination of a 52-week journey I commenced on July 31st, 2017.

The basis for this experiment was at the suggestion of Ray Bradbury who recommended that all beginning and intermediate writers follow this ‘writer’s hygiene’ program, because there’s just no way you can write 52 bad stories in a row.

Here, I present all 52 stories along with a journal of the process behind each one. Also included are general lessons I've learned that I hope will turn struggling writers into prolific writers.

Wedding Wipeout by Jacob M. Appel (Cozy Cat 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 by author. Please consider adding this book 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.

The Game of VORs by Andrew Orange

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Andrew_Orange (author): Greetings!
My pen name is Andrew Orange.
I’m a college graduate and I hold a Ph.D.
I write fantastic books about real life.
Happy to send you my novel (mobi, epub, pdf, whatever you prefer).
P.S. Please, consider adding this book to your LibraryThing bookshelf.

Description: "The Game of VORs is gritty, tragic, and very emotional... a suspenseful, coming of age story in a dark world." — Readers' Favorite

"I would recommend this to any person interested in twisted political discrepancies or learning about different takes on identity and morality." — LitPick

"What strikes me the most about this book is the quality of its dialogues: they feel authentic and add a sense of realness in a dystopian world." — Goodreads

"I read about the author and was surprised that this is his first book, because, as for me, it is written very well and talentedly, I hope this successful beginning will allow him to write even more books." — Goodreads

"Speaking of reader experience, I can only say that this was a high class read that I enjoyed greatly, and the translation is so skillful that it wasn’t at all clear that it was a translation at all.
I see that other reviewers have compared the book to some modern YA books; personally I found it was most highly comparable to Dune; a militaristic aristocracy, an ostensibly innocuous heir who will turn out to change everything, a feared outclass with paranormal abilities and their own set of rules, a harsh and unforgiving environmental setting — we were just missing the worms.
In short, the book exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend it on its own merit."
— Amazon

Kier Vorsmith, the youngest son of an influential count, dreams of studying at the University and living a quiet life as a historian. However, when he fails his high school’s final exams, whirlwind events force Kier to become the official heir of the Vorsmiths’ county and an officer in the Imperial Special Corps. At the will of his father, the young man arrives at a remote arctic base to serve as a local weatherman...

Offered by jmercerbooks (author): Excited about sharing this third novel of mine with the world and hoping to bump up review numbers.

Description: One week on an Alaskan cruise, three teens, and an endless trail of lies.

Enter a series of thefts on board and they all fall under scrutiny. Though Navy acts a proper preacher's daughter, she did end up with someone else's purse in her hands, and Jesse knows way more than he should about what's gone missing. Isaiah, however, is the one with motive-enough money and he could get back to his ranch. Each holds a piece of the truth, but exposing the thief could damn them all. They must navigate through the lies they've told, choose between standing together or saving themselves, and decide if innocence is worth facing their ugliest secrets.

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M. Appel (Permanent Press)

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 books 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.

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. A Confederacy of Dunces meets Arrested Development.

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

    Offered by Nadia_Shulman (author): As a new author, I'm very curious about the response this biographical book about growing up Jewish in Soviet Russia, the experience of being an immigrant and refugee, and the success that can come from it. Given that Russia and refugees are seemingly in every headline these days, I thought it might be topical and a good perspective. But I wonder if you agree?

In Double Exposure, Victoria offers a memoir that moves between past and present to chronicle her journey to the United States. Within the celebration of their anniversary, Victoria shares intimate stories of her transformation into womanhood and motherhood, reflecting on her family and life under Soviet rule. And as she meets Felix, a love story unfolds that takes them around the world and around their new country, together for fifty years. Double Exposure is a sincere account of many hilarious misadventures, frustrating mistakes, and heartbreaking times on the way to freedom. This cross-country journey provides not only a trip through history, but also a personal glimpse into tragedies and triumphs in the life of a woman, a family, a country.

Waiting to depart for the next life, the dead recount their fateful tales to the stunned mortuary technician. United by the timing and location of their demise, each death is distinguished by a different cause: Natural. Accident. Suicide. Murder. Initially terrified by the spirit encounter, Colin soon realises the visitants are just as incredulous as he is about their reanimation. How and when will they pass? And what comes next? Do any of the ghosts pose a real threat to Colin's own life? Ultimately, his destiny may be just as uncertain as theirs.

    Exile Hunter by Preston Fleming (PF Publishing)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

    Offered by PrestonFleming (author): If your taste runs to dystopian thrillers set in a future authoritarian America, I invite you to read EXILE HUNTER.

    EXILE HUNTER is the third and final novel in the Kamas Trilogy. I consider it the finest of the three and you do not need to read the previous two novels to enjoy it.

    NOTE: Those who post a pre-release review of EXILE HUNTER at LibraryThing or Goodreads will be eligible to receive a free review copy of my next novel, scheduled for release later this year. Best regards, Preston

    Description: The final book in the Kamas Trilogy begins one year before the Kamas revolt. A veteran intelligence officer with the Department of State Security is accused of sabotaging an undercover operation in Beirut against exiled political opponents of the President-for-Life. Sent to die in an arctic labor camp, he undergoes a change of heart and decides to redress past wrongs.

    KIRKUS REVIEWS (pre-release): "Pure energy in print form, whether the characters are being pursued or simply talking; Fleming has proven himself a craftsman."

    SYNOPSIS:
    Beirut, 2023: When undercover intelligence officer Warren Linder agrees to lure an exiled opponent of the President-for-Life back to impoverished, low-tech, post-Civil War II America, Linder is unaware that the target is his childhood sweetheart’s father. On learning this, he ignores his inner alarms and plunges ahead.

    But a surprise encounter with the woman who rejected him years before triggers a change in Linder that derails the operation. His superiors, suspecting treachery, capture Linder along with the target and his daughter and spirit them back to the U.S. aboard a secret rendition flight. Linder’s ensuing journey takes him from Beirut to a Virginia interrogation center and on to an Arctic labor camp; then, after a nearly impossible winter escape, on a 2000 mile trek to the Utah Security Zone, where his onetime love was last held.

    Though he finds her, their respective ordeals have changed them. The story reaches a climax in the couple’s home town of Cleveland, where Linder aims to recover his former target’s last cache of rebel funds and use it to take his loved ones beyond the regime’s reach.

    EXILE HUNTER is a tragic yet life-affirming saga of a man who risks everything to set right past wrongs, regain lost love and resist the tyranny he once served.

    RANKED #1 New Releases on Amazon (Nov 19 &20)

    Was Great Britain of the 1980’s a welcoming place for a young man hailing from its former colony? How did the National Health Service exploit the vulnerable physicians from a newly independent and struggling India to fulfill its needs? What were the flaming hoops that a foreign physician had to jump through to further his professional career in the UK en route to a final destination in the United States? Read about all this in a gripping, event filled narrative- VQE- an acronym for the dreaded Visa Qualifying Exam, a grueling 2-day test that all foreign physicians had to pass to practice medicine in the United States.
    In 1980, after completing medical school in India, a young Indian physician lands in Britain in pursuit of his dream to get to the United States. He is young, a full 26-year-old, ambitious and opinionated. The two and half years that he spends in Britain are eventful years and are touchingly captured in this book.

    This dazzlingly original book set in Great Britain of the 1980’s. does not subscribe to any set genre. It is a unique chronicle that weaves the current events of those times with the memoir of a young foreign physician in an alien land to produce a piece of work that is informative, touching at times and entertaining in parts. It captures the despair, the hopes, trepidations and travails of this young man from a financially indigent India of the 1980’s as he charts his way through the land of his colonial masters and the innumerable challenges of this tumultuous period of his life: professional setbacks in the form of certifying exam failures, joblessness as he moves from one part of Britain to another changing cities sometimes every two weeks in search of work; a cataplexic agoraphobia as he tries to come to terms with racism on the streets. Meanwhile in the background a host of remarkable events are being played out- Lady Diana’s wedding, inter-racial riots and the British-Argentina war over the Falkland Islands.

    Let The Swine Go Forth by Auriel Roe (KDP)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

    Offered by aurielroe (author): My debut novel, Blindefellows, which came out last year hit the #1 best seller spot for the humour genre in Amazon UK, US and Canada thanks to being helped along by some of the reviews on Library Thing. Hoping you kind people will read and post reviews of this one too :)

    Description: Out of the blue, vain and naive former drama teacher, Tristram Randolph, is offered the job of headmaster at a new school in Diskebapisbad, dysfunctional capital of a despotic post-Soviet state. Little does he know— although the signs are obvious to all but him— that the school is the pet project of the ruthless president's spoilt daughter. Randolph hires a motley crew of teachers, each of whom embodies one of the seven deadly sins. Swineforth International, a franchise of a third rate public school in England, is built on a half-finished campus in the desert. The food is appalling and there's no escape as the foreign faculty have had their passports retained. When inspectors Swainson and Dare arrive from Swineforth in England, their grave reservations about the new school and Randolph's ability to manage it are confirmed. Matters come to a head when a revolution breaks out, the school is shut down and Randolph is accused of aiding and abetting the rebellion. His only hope now lies in winning a presidential pardon by giving the performance of a lifetime as a pantomime dame. Praise for the author's debut novel, 'A Blindefellows Chronicle'... “A sprightly, inventive novel, rich in amusing characters and situations. I enjoyed every word of it.” Tony Connor, Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature

    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.

    I hope that you find the book interesting and that perhaps you will share a review with the LibraryThing community.

    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.”

    Midwest Book Review

    Note: This novel was reviewed in Literary Review (UK), Edinburgh Book Review, Midwest Book Review, and The Pacific Rim Review of Books.

    The Light: A Modern-Day Journey for Peace by Judith T. Lambert (Ann Duran Productions)

    This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

    Offered by JudithLambert (author): Kindle Version only. One copy available.

    Description: 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.

    Understand religion from a fresh perspective? Nourish your soul and be prepared to view God differently? Is global spirituality possible? A Modern-Day Journey for Peace, winner of five book awards, 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. While many have heard of the Near Death Experience, this book is unique, as it searches for the common thread between us, here, in this world. This is not a book on the afterlife or what happens on the other side. There is another way to view this phenomena. Discovering a global context for the Near Death Experience is exciting and this modern-day story melds the innumerable religious experiences 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.

    This is a ground-breaking memoir on the Near Death Experience that unveils the roots to a global spirituality.

    *Please note Print and Ebooks do not come with award stickers and this is a KINDLE Only Version Giveaway.
