Chick Lit Free on Kindle

Sue Featherstone’s A Falling Friend: A Witty and Intelligent Chic Lit with Attitude (FRIENDS Book 1) is free on Kindle today:

“There are two sides to every friendship.

After spending her twenties sailing the globe, making love on fine white sand, and thinking only of today, Teri Meyer returns to Yorkshire – and back into the life of childhood friend Lee. Plus, there’s the new job, new man – or three – and the guaranteed lump sum of a bursary for her academic research piece on the way. Life is first-rate.

What could possibly go wrong?

Going out on a limb to get best friend Teri a job at the same university seemed like a great idea. But it doesn’t take long for Lee Harper to notice a pattern. Teri seems to attract trouble, or maybe she creates it, and Lee can see exactly where things are spiralling – downwards. But Teri’s not the sort to heed a warning, so Lee has no choice but to stand by and watch.

And besides, she has her own life to straighten out.

For fans of BRIDGET JONES, this ‘witty’ chick lit has been described as a ‘rollicking good read’ and is the first in the FRIENDS trilogy following the lives of two thirty-something women, who, despite their close friendship, don’t always see eye-to-eye.”

Sci-Fi Fantasy Free on Kindle

C. Ryan Bymaster’s eMOTION: Hard Wired (Fifth and Dent Book 2) is free on Kindle today:

“Marion Dent is a sociopath for hire, immune to emotional-tampering technology known as eTech. Kasumi “Fifth” Takeda is a thirteen-year old girl with a unique talent to force her emotions on those around her. When Dent fails to fulfill a contract to kidnap Fifth, choosing instead to become her guardian, it puts them on the run from those who wish Dent killed for his betrayal and Fifth locked up in a laboratory.
As they struggle to understand each other, they receive a mysterious text message promising them answers about Fifth’s past and way to secure their future. The message brings them out of hiding and leads them to a town plagued by a sudden string of murders and supposed suicides, thrusting them back into the deadly machinations of those hunting them. Each with reasons of their own, they must find a way to work together as they risk their lives to determine if the deaths are eTech-related.
But Dent soon finds that Fifth’s talent interferes with his ability to be an emotionless killer, as she tries to keep him from slipping too far over the edge. If they can accomplish what they believe they were sent there to do, they may be one step closer to finding a way to give Fifth a chance at a normal life — and allow Dent to focus on why they specifically were chosen for this task, and who is really behind the message that started it all.”

Humorous Historical Satire Free on Kindle

Paul Weinzweig’s Moscow Book of Promises is free on Kindle today:

““MOSCOW BOOK OF PROMISES” is a satirical, bittersweet account of the misadventures of a Jewish American businessman chasing the shadows of commercial success in the Moscow of Glasnost (openness) and Perestroika (restructuring) during the late 1980s, in the dying days of the Soviet empire. Joshua Edelshtein is the prodigal yuppie son of a conservative Jewish emigre screenwriter in Hollywood who has just paid handsomely for Joshua’s legal fees so that his son could gain custody of his only daughter. No sooner has Joshua won custody than he gives it up to accept his hi-tech company’s offer to open up the personal computer market in the twilight days of the USSR. His father, who fights passively for Soviet Refuseniks, feels doubly betrayed. In his frustration, he demands that Joshua compensate him by sending home letters which the father might use in his script treatments.
Armed to the teeth with American PC technology and a bizarre grasp of modern capitalism, Joshua sets sail from Silicon Valley for Moscow and the land of his Jewish forefathers. Moscow will never be the same.
“MOSCOW BOOK OF PROMISES” is an epistolary story composed of Joshua’s “Dear Dad” letters home. The letters are double-edged: one side exposes the objective world of clashing cultures, the marriage of Soviet illusions with American naivete; the offspring is often the sham of “joint venture by press release”. At the same time, we witness Joshua’s ambivalent feelings for his father and his search for roots and relatives (a search his father fears). Joshua’s adventure becomes a tragicomedy of contretemps, intrigues, betrayals, friendships, fears and hostilities, which color the murky landscape of business life in Moscow, one of the great cities of the world submerged in the confusion of revolutionary changes. It is a tale full of promises of love and hope, told to a cynical father and signifying America’s newborn romance with Russia and her aspirations for commercial conquest in the “evil empire” gone awry.
Joshua’s business activities are only temporarily interrupted when he is asked to run for the leadership of the newly formed “Soviet Consumer Party” and subsequently fired by Globaltek, his employer. At this point, his life becomes dominated by his mentor, Dick Raven, an American economist whose purpose in Moscow is unclear and whose counsels and motives may appear egotistical and treacherous to the eyes of the reader, but not to our trusting hero. Through his misguided efforts, Joshua achieves a dubious celebrity that leads him to an affair with a woman who may be something more than the journalist with whom he is infatuated. Fate’s final thrust comes from Pamyat, the ultra-nationalistic and anti-Semitic Russian society.
Joshua’s false confidence in his business acumen, his naive hopes of selling hi-tech for dollars in an abacus-run, nonconvertible ruble economy, his political ambitions to transfer American commercial ideology onto sacred Russian soil, his artless affection for colleagues, adversaries, and nagging relatives, all combine to create the texture of a character and story reminiscent of a literary soup spiced with Don Quixote, Candide, and Sholom Aleichem.”

“Many are called… She alone can save the world and become Death’s bride.

COBWEB BRIDE (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One) is a history-flavored fantasy novel with romantic elements of the Persephone myth, about Death’s ultimatum to the world.

What if you killed someone and then fell in love with them?

In an alternate Renaissance world, somewhere in an imaginary “pocket” of Europe called the Kingdom of Lethe, Death comes, in the form of a grim Spaniard, to claim his Bride. Until she is found, in a single time-stopping moment all dying stops. There is no relief for the mortally wounded and the terminally ill….

Covered in white cobwebs of a thousand snow spiders she lies in the darkness… Her skin is cold as snow… Her eyes frozen… Her gaze, fiercely alive…

While kings and emperors send expeditions to search for a suitable Bride for Death, armies of the undead wage an endless war… A black knight roams the forest at the command of his undead father… Spies and political treacheries abound at the imperial Silver Court…. Murdered lovers find themselves locked in the realm of the living…

Look closer—through the cobweb filaments of her hair and along each strand shine stars…

And one small village girl, Percy—an unwanted, ungainly middle daughter—is faced with the responsibility of granting her dying grandmother the desperate release she needs.

As a result, Percy joins the crowds of other young women of the land in a desperate quest to Death’s own mysterious holding in the deepest forests of the North…

And everyone is trying to stop her. ”
