Roll of a Lifetime by Melanie Greene

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by dakiMel (author): I'm Melanie Greene, and I'm pleased to share my newest full length, stand alone novel in the Roll of the Dice series, Roll of a Lifetime.

Rachel has every reason to mistrust romance in general, and Theo specifically. But oh, he's compelling despite all that! Pitting these two against each other as I wrote them was a treat, as you'll see when you read their steamy romance.

Description: Things Rachel Groff needs: her daughter out of diapers, the back child support she’s owed, freedom from her devious, dirtbag ex-husband.

Rachel has inched her way towards financial security over three years of solo parenting. Clinging to her hard-won independence, she is on guard against the type of man who deceived her in the past. Men like the too-hot and too-charming divorced dad who claims to be nothing like her ex.

Things Theo Melis loves: kayaking along the bayou, baking pies, being with his son.

His big gamble has paid off: his brewpub is in the black and garnering great reviews. Now Theo’s focused on earning a favorable rating from his manager’s ex-wife. He’s taken with her strength and ferocity of purpose, and proud when she allows him to help her escape the stresses of life. But one moment Rachel melts into him; the next, she jerks away, leaving him overheated and confused.

Theo longs to earn Rachel’s trust. Rachel’s heart yearns for him, but her instincts have devastated her before. Every step they take could be a disastrous misstep. If they move in unison, can they discover a path worth taking?

Straight Arrow by Robert H. Kruse (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 RobertHKruse (author): My latest book, Straight Arrow, I wrote in 2018 and would love to hear from readers. Reviews are voluntary, of course, but I am a new and unknown author, and we live or die by what people say about our writing. Even if it's only a line or two saying why you enjoyed on didn't enjoy the book, I would greatly appreciate the comments.

Description: Two rich men, privileged and powerful, believe the law applies only to poor people. And things like murder and kidnapping are “negotiable” with the authorities.

They don’t intend to lose.


William Ayrow stumbles across evidence of a woman’s abduction, and is quickly targeted by henchman trying to silence him. He must stay one step ahead, locate and rescue the woman, and keep the police out.


The job got harder when Opal Carson, a friend of the victim and an ex-cop, joins the mission against his advice. Now he must safeguard her as well.


The kidnappers are in Las Vegas. If he can escape his enemies at home, and if he can get there before it’s too late, he will confront them.

Sensitivity Readers, Diversity Editors and Targeted Beta Readers are not hired to edit out creativity, but to simply offer suggestions or alternatives, if needed. It is up to the client whether to use any of the suggestions or not.

You now understand what Sensitivity Readers, Diversity Editors and Targeted Beta Readers do.

The Emperor's Harvest by R.A. Denny

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RADenny (author): A short review on Amazon would be appreciated! Enjoy! Thank you.

Description: I love to listen to Baskrod’s stories. He describes warlike men with natural armor who hibernate in rocky caves and peaceful people who soar through the air in a forest of giant trees. His tales are full of foreboding dreams and ancient prophecies; royal palaces and strange creatures. My brother laughs at me. He says that the old fisherman makes it all up. But everything Baskrod has ever predicted has come true. So I have always believed his stories.

UNTIL NOW

Baskrod appears to have gone mad. He claims that the emperor is sending a murderous horde of evil men to destroy our village. “They will drink your blood!” he yells, wide-eyed while standing in the marketplace waving his trident. He repeatedly begs me to escape with him. But it is harvest time, and I must stay to help my family in the fields. Anyway, the emperor has no reason to turn against us. We pay our tribute.

If only we had listened to Baskrod.

The emperor planned his own harvest. His reapers were ax-wielding horsemen. And they were not harvesting crops. They harvested my people.

Now I am the sole survivor of my village. Baskrod claims that the one god has chosen me. He says I must travel to the distant capital of Tzoladia to save the world. Maybe Baskrod is right. Maybe it is my destiny. But I’m nobody. How can I save the world?

Murderous Minds: Stories of Real Life Murderers that Escaped the Headlines (Volume 4) by Ryan Becker (Sea Vision Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by RyanBecker (publisher): Hi everyone,

This is the fourth book in my true crime series called "Murderous Minds" I am giving away 100 free copies for those of you who love true crime stories. It is a short book so it will be a quick horrific experience. Warning: graphic content

Grab a copy, if this is your cup of tea.

Thank you,
Ryan

Description: Tales of murder and darkness have a way of both terrifying and enthralling us.

The line between man and monster is never as definitive or sturdy as we’d like to think. When seemingly ordinary people cross the line between normal behavior and violent acts, it raises the question: what were they thinking? Can your own mind be the key to becoming a monster?

What we think, or more importantly what we believe, can push the boundaries of normal into darkness in unimaginable ways. Whether the beliefs come from misinterpreting organized religion, holding too tightly to olf folklore, or letting your imagination run wild, the danger is evident for those unable to keep their minds in check. Murderous Minds Volume 4 follows six chilling stories of faith and imagination gone too far. It’s a dangerous reality that has reappeared decade after decade with deadly results for those unfortunate enough to wander too close to the flame. The killers of this anthology have the charisma to convince others of impossible things, and the insanity to hold those beliefs themselves. These belief systems come at a high price, especially for the victims of belief-motivated crimes.

Serial Killers True Crime Box Set: 6 Notorious True Crime Murder Stories by Jack Rosewood

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please notice that this is a review copy for the e-book

Description: In the very depths of the human soul there is a darkness. It is an entity which most of us may never get to know; for others, however, this darkness grows for years until it takes hold of them and permeates every inch of their body. This darkness is evil incarnate, and it is in the hearts and minds of some of the most dangerous and despicable human beings to have walked this same earth we live in today.

Sometimes it can manifest as the desire to dominate the weak and the less fortunate; in others, it becomes an uncontrollable need for violence and death; another group turns this evil into pure hatred for those that they do not agree with, transforming dislike into the desire to spill blood.

Regardless of which group we are talking about, there are many of these individuals which soon evolve into the most deadly kind of monster: the serial killer.

In the following volumes, you shall discover the stories of six murderers so tainted by darkness that their horrific accounts still bring fear to men and women of our present day:

- Edmund Kemper, the Co-Ed Killer, whose victims were mostly young, defenseless students;

- The Briley Brothers, three siblings who were as mentally unstable as they were bloodthirsty;

- John Christie, who lived a double life while killing cruelly and indiscriminately;

- John Haigh or The Acid Bath Murderer, whose methods of disposing of victims made him infamous, and finally;

- Joseph Paul Franklin, whose racist hatred fueled him into a deadly “cleansing of the world”, according to his own claims.

So open the pages of the volumes in this Serial Killers True Crime Box Set now, and begin exploring these tales that have been forged with the essence of hell itself – you may soon realize just how deep evil can plant its seeds within a human being…

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.

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…

The gentle push of a love-struck professor starts her adventure—take the flag home.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please notice that this is a review copy of the e-book version.

Description: Rich history, important figures and massive events that rocked the entire continent; each of the 50 states comprising the United States has been the scene of enormous moments in history that are the subject of study all over the world.

Knowing such facts and being able to recognize the details of culture, folklore and sports (among many other pieces of trivia) are gifts that very few have, even those that can boast living in certain states all of their life.

In this American History by the State Box Set, we provide you with the trivia and facts surrounding three of the most emblematic states in the U.S.: Texas, New York and California:

The Mask of Sanity by Jacob M. Appel (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): 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.

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: 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. It would help me greatly if you left a review here so that your LibraryThings friends can get to know me too! I've been writing since 2009 and have more titles coming so if you like Serendipity of Fate you might also like one of my other titles. Happy reading, friends!

[Note: ebooks will be in either .MOBI (Kindle) or .EPUB (Nook) format]

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!"

Description: Named one of only two 5-star finalists for the Indie Reader Discovery Awards in the humor category, Goliath Gets Up is one of the funniest books you will ever read.

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.

Small Town Kid by Frank Prem (Wild Arancini Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by Frank_Prem (author): Hello.

I am both author and publisher of this free verse memoir. This is my first Print On Demand collection of poems, and I think it represents something of a departure in format for memoir.

The collection flows episodically from poem to poem creating a progression that is smooth, though not strictly chronological.

Bonfire building and explosions. 14 mile pursuits of girls. Roaming free with the dog.

The events of a childhood that has disappeared forever from our sight.

I would very much like to receive some further reviews, good or bad, as the come. I would be happy to discuss any aspects of the book, of course.

Radio interview with Frank Prem about the book here: https://frankprem.com/frank-prem-radio...

Thanks for considering this offering.

Description: Small Town Kid is the experience of regional life as a child, in an insular town during the late 1960s to the mid-1970s, remote from the more worldly places where life really happens, in a time before the internet and the online existence of social media.
It is a time when a small town boy can walk a mile to school and back every day, and hunt rabbits with his dog in the hours of freedom before sundown. He can hoard crackers for bonfire night and blow up the deputy school master’s mailbox in an act of joyous rebellion.

It is a time when a small town teenager will ride fourteen miles on a bicycle for his first experience of girls, and of love. A time when migrating from a foreign country to a small town means his family will always feel that they are strangers, while visitors to the town are treated like an invading host.

It is also the remembrance of tragedy for inexperienced friends driving on narrow country roads.

This collection of poems and stories shares the type of childhood that has mostly disappeared in contemporary times. Come and revisit it here, in the pages of a Small Town Kid.

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.

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…?

The Deer King by Ben Spencer (Knock-Knee Books)

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

Offered by BenSpencer (author): To celebrate the release of The Sundering: Novella Two in The Deer King series, I am giving away fifteen copies of The Deer King: Novella One through LibraryThing.

As I look to grow the series, I'm hoping to attract readers looking for a smart, indie fantasy experience. Although every novella is a standalone book, readers who follow the series will become deeply enmeshed in an ever-evolving plot and an ever-expanding cast of characters. Strongly recommended for those who love fantasy with literary undertones.

If you do happen to win a copy of The Deer King, I would be ever grateful if you would post a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Please visit my website for more information on the series. There are also a decent number of thoughtful reviews up on Amazon and Goodreads (many from independent book bloggers)about The Deer King, so feel free to check out what others have said before deciding to take the plunge.

Description: One girl. A reincarnated war god. The chance to stop the carnage before it begins.

Emmaline Rain’s father is the Stoneman. His responsibility: travel into Massaporan lands and end the life of the reincarnated Massaporan deity—the Deer King—the instant he is born. But when he fails in this task, the delicate equilibrium between Emmaline’s people and the Massaporans is disturbed. It seems likely that the violence of the past will be renewed.

Emmaline’s father is soon murdered by a priest of the Bronze Titan for his shortcomings. Newly orphaned, Emmaline absconds with the Saving Stone in the hopes of finding the Deer King and completing her father’s work. But when she comes face-to-face with the Deer King, she realizes that relations between her people and the Massaporans are more complicated than she has been led to believe.

The Deer King is the first in a planned series of fantasy novellas set in Dreyland, a colonial world where the indigenous people rely on the strength of a reincarnated god to help them offset the technological superiority of the settlers.

Description: In late August 2012, in the space of sixty-two hours, Craig Stobo lost half his family to sepsis and almost lost his own life, too. Whilst recovering in hospital and in the midst of profound shock and grief, he began writing poems to his late wife, Fiona, and their stillborn daughter, Isla. These poems became Coronach, a cycle of poems about love, loss and learning to live again in a very different world. 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.

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

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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.

Description: I was a single parent for many years and along the way discovered that the most important thing in life to me is being a mum. Having battled low self-esteem throughout most of my life, I found I could express myself through writing poetry. I have always enjoyed writing and now feel ready to share some of that with others. This book covers my life experiences, thoughts and feelings, in poem form.
It deals with topics such as self-esteem, death and marriage, with a bit of humour added in too. I strongly believe our childhood shapes us and our whole future. I am passionate about good parenting. It can be difficult at times, but we have to try and get it right. It's a balance. Like walking a tightrope. I hope you will enjoy my book, as there is something in here for everyone.

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.

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.

Offered by BJeanneShibahara (author): Enter for a chance to win a paperback of KAEROU Time to Go Home signed by the author

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

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.”

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.”

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.

Description: Born in a drafty house, Jessie, the first born of Mary and her abusive husband, Bill, was born for better things. Throughout her childhood, she tells stories that enable her to escape into her own made up world. She cares for her siblings and manages to establish lifelong friendships. As a teenager, her parents divorce, and Jessie begins to experience days without the need to weigh every action or word. She no longer fears the night or the soft footsteps that once came to her bedside. Because of her capacity for forgiveness and compassion, Jessie refused to be a victim. Later, she is reunited with a high school friend who becomes the man who makes her frightening memories dissolve into distant shadows that hover at the outer fringes of her mind but are rarely allowed in. As a wife and mother, Jessie again turns to storytelling, not as a way to escape her father's cruelty but to entertain and teach her children. She introduces them to characters that leave them wanting more but appropriating what they have.

The Brightest: a novella by Marty Dalton

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

Offered by MartyDalton (author): This is for a paperback giveaway, looking for reviews on Amazon & Goodreads. Thanks and happy reading!

Description:

This is a love story about love stories. And, as important, a story about why fate will sometimes feel like luck.

"They swirl around each other, like they're being pulled into orbit."

Robyn always thought that she and her destiny were inseparable facts. That true love was waiting around the corner, if only she kept looking.

"She saw signs everywhere and thought of the whole cosmos like an ocean. It was looking to wash beautiful things up on shore, like seashells. All she had to do was pick them up."

But when celebrated author Gatory Penn comes to town with a novel contradicting everything in her world, Robyn discovers that believing in love will mean confronting an old man's broken heart.

Written to be read in one sitting, this heartfelt novella will stick with you long after you finish reading.

~ENDORSEMENTS~

"There's a void in recent fiction that needs to be filled with optimism and goodness, and Marty Dalton's, The Brightest, fills that void in spades. Dalton has written a brave and bold book because it's a good book. Unlike so much writing these days, it doesn't remind us, yet again,that our world is an unstable one. Instead it points out a world that works, one that is founded on love. I can't recommend a better book to hang out with for a few hours if you'd like to close the cover with a smile on your face."
- Katherine James, award-winning author of Can You See Anything Now? Winner CT 2018 Fiction Book Award

"I believe in love - the real, magical, mystical kind of love. And I'm equally sure of its healing power, even for those who have suffered a broken heart. As with all things, there are some who don't agree. I find it comforting that I can now gift them with a copy of The Brightest and know that I've done what was mine to do."
- Suzanne Stabile, best-selling author of The Path Between Us and creator of The Enneagram Journey podcast

Offered by lgould171784 (author): I am the author of "Sycophants," recently published on Amazon, and would welcome any reviews.

Description: Imogene, a country girl by birth, has always longed for the bright lights of New York City. After graduating from a small-town college, she moves to the big city with her husband Steve and supports him through law school by working low-level publishing jobs. An aspiring writer herself, Imogene struggles with both marriage and career. Then her former college roommate, Sara, arrives in town with plans to establish a film production company. Sara takes over an outfit previously run by her brother, a semi-retired rock star, and Imogene jumps at the chance to join this exciting new venture. She becomes Sara’s confidante and assistant in an ambitious movie project about a youth revolution that threatens to engulf the nation’s capital. As the cast expands and the script evolves, the story line flirts dangerously with reality. The filmmakers can’t predict whether the project will make their fortunes or shatter their lives.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway (Scribner Paperback Fiction)

Offered by RoeschLeisure: Trade paperback in good shape.

Description: The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo's last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. "If the function of a writer is to reveal reality," Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, "no one ever so completely performed it." Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author's previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters.

All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it.

CHARLES GUYETTE: Godfather of American Fetish Art [*Expanded Photo Edition*] by Richard Pérez Seves (FetHistory Ltd.)

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

Offered by Alexandra_Antonovich: Assisting the author:

** New Expanded Second Edition ** contains 25 additional pages, 30+ newly discovered, uniquely beautiful Guyette images. Many not seen in over 70 years.

From the author, Richard Pérez Seves:

"One of the reasons I put this book together was to honor the fetish community and one way to do this was to recognize and celebrate individuals who contributed to it. Charles Guyette was the first person to produce and distribute fetish art in America. This is his story, this is his contribution to the diversity of American culture."

Description:
.
==>> “Peek Inside” Expanded Second Edition
.

Charles Guyette, the "G-string King," referenced in the film of Wonder Woman's creator, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, and costumer to Bettie Page, was the first person to produce and distribute fetish art in America. In 1935, he was arrested and sent to federal prison. But what should've been the end was just the beginning. Although rarely credited by name in his lifetime, he influenced everyone who would follow him, particularly the publishers Robert Harrison, John Willie, Irving Klaw, and Leonard Burtman. The aim of this book was to evoke the spirit of Guyette—to collect surviving fragments of a decimated catalog largely by referencing vintage fetish publications from the 1930s through the 1980s and reconstruct a lost history. This portfolio of images is followed by biographical information seen nowhere else, and serves as a substantial introduction to the birth of American fetish art and the cultural impact of an unrecognized pioneer.

"This is a beautiful, perfect book. A loving homage to one of the best fetish artists the world will ever know. The great Eric Stanton finally has the biographer he deserves." ―Stephen Elliott, author of The Adderall Diaries and Happy Baby

Tracing the rise of commercial fetish art from its shadowy beginnings in the 1940s to its acceptance in the 1970s, this illustrated biography explores the unconventional life and art of Eric Stanton, a pioneering sexual fantasist who helped shape the movement.
