Abruptions: 3 Minute Stories to Awaken the Mind by Jack Matthews (Personville Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Offered by rjnagle (publisher): This title will be released as an ebook in all the major ebookstores in October, 2017. Any help you can provide this book in terms of reviews or publicity would be appreciated.

Description: "Matthews stories are like friends from small towns: They are honest, warm, occasionally lyrical and as strange and idiosyncratic as the rest of us." (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER)

During the last decade of his life, author Jack Matthews wrote a series of 1-2 page prose pieces (which he dubbed "Abruptions" or "very short stories that end abruptly"). Matthews had already published over 20 books of fiction with an astonishing variety of characters and plots. This last volume hints at a lot of characters and plots without trying to resolve them. Each abruption — which rarely takes more than 5 minutes to read — sheds light on something unexpected, whether it be a character's view on life or the reader's notions of how the world ought to work. Many episodes read like contemporary fables or sketches of quirky people from small midwest towns. Other stories sound like wild fairy tales. Some stories simply ponder the imponderable. Matthews explains in the book's preface that abruptions "can reach down to dimensions of wonder and speculation that are commonly thought to be the proper domain of poetry." These stories are a fitting coda for Matthew's career as a storyteller. As deep and dark as these abruptions can become, they are told with simple language, flashes of humor and a sage's sense of wonder and irony. (Read more ).

Invasion by PP Corcoran (Castrum Press)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

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

Offered by PPCorcoran (publisher): Castrum Press are releasing a small, limited number of free copies of Invasion, book 1 of the K'Tai War by PP Corcoran (author of the best selling Saiph series). We gratefully request honest reviews in exchange.

Description: The Carters have a past. A secret past. A past that the K’tai didn’t reckon on.

Humanity, previously dependent on the K'Tai for its Redlazore, discovers vast resources of the most valuable mineral in the galaxy on Agate and are now free to expand across the stars: Redlazore is also the key component to faster-than-light travel.

The planet Agate is, however, the human colony-world which lies perilously close to the K'Tai Imperium and the K'Tai resolve to put the upstart humans back in their place.

The K'Tai Imperium invades Agate.

On the ground, in the midst of the whirlwind conflict is the Carter family: Dave a mid-level exec is working in downtown Gemini City, Sue his wife, a high school teacher and their teenage twins, Jodee and Chris are on a school trip to a Redlazore mine.

In space, the League Border Patrol face overwhelming odds as the K'Tai fleet advance.

The K'Tai soldiers of the infamous Black Legion descend on Agate, opposed by the meagre, poorly-armed militia and a sprinkling of regular marines. The planet and those upon it are engulfed in the flames of war.

The K'Tai, however, did not count on the Carters. For the Carters have a secret. A secret which will cost the K'Tai Imperium dearly.

The Carters are Agate's human population's only hope.
