Contemporary Romance Free on Kindle

Christina George’s The Publicist is free on Kindle today:

“Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t sell, and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.
Enter the star editor, MacDermott Ellis: Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author—now as forgotten as last year’s bestsellers and his nephew Nick: Tall, gorgeous, sweet, single, and ready to sweep Kate off her feet. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions.
As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week,” she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more romance and sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.

Welcome to the world of publishing. The ego has landed.”

Sci-Fi Space Opera Free on Kindle

Kevin Hardman’s Terminus (Fringe Worlds #1) is free on Kindle today:

“Master Sergeant Gant Maker was a highly-decorated and well-respected Marine – until his last mission left him as the sole survivor of an encounter with a vicious race called the Vacra. Served up as a scapegoat and drummed out of the military, he has since lived a life of seclusion with only an adopted alien as a companion.

Now the Vacra have returned. As the only person to have ever faced them and survived, Maker is reinstated in the Corps and given the onerous task of finding this enemy on a world located at the edge of known space. Assisting him is an unlikely band of military rejects, including a blind sharpshooter, an unstable psychic, and a genetically-engineered killing machine who refuses to fight.

Given that the Vacra have superior weapons and technology, Maker recognizes that his team is at a distinct disadvantage. But Marines are nothing if not resourceful, and Maker has an audacious plan that just may level the playing field – if it doesn’t get them all killed.”

Futuristic Novel Free on Kindle

J. Nikol’s Independence Cycle | Part 1: Serial Speculative Fiction (WITHOUT LIGHT) is free on Kindle today:

WITHOUT LIGHT
Two and a half centuries in the future, the United States no longer exists. Daily life for the residents of New England resembles nothing their recent ancestors might have imagined. Physically and politically isolated, citizens of the new sovereign state live in a single, sprawling, highly-segregated urban landscape. Centuries old social divisions have now consolidated and dramatically shape where people live, how people work, and most importantly what people consume. Once a harmless idiom, “you are what you eat”, is now an incontrovertible doctrine–the key to good health, great influence, and immeasurable power.

INDEPENDENCE CYCLE | PART 1
Few understand the intricacies of the state’s politically-charged food system better than Civet Olkin, founder of Bītlogik, New England’s first Gastronomic Relations consultancy. After Walker Wilson–infamous professional football player and Bītlogik’s biggest client–commits a devastating gustatory mishap, Civet must scramble to save her reputation and her firm.”

Now, Sunny has less than a week to figure out how to reverse the bite, or else she’s going to end up as the perpetually undead. And not only will she be a vampire, she’ll also be bonded to Magnus–the bloodsucker who bit her–forever. And forever is a really long time…”

Jennie Marts’ Another Saturday Night and I Ain’t Got No Body (A Page Turners Novel Book 1) is free on Kindle today:

“Sunny’s not sure she’s even looking for Mr. Maybe, when her friends decide to find her Mr. Right.
Sunny Vale considers herself a dog-loving, romance-reading, homebody. But her life goes from dull to deadly when her book club fires her from her own love life and sets her up on six blind dates- one of whom might be with a murderer. More trouble arrives in the dead of night, in the form of Jake Landon, a mysterious stranger, who breaks into her neighbor’s house and possibly her heart. But Jake is packing more than a loaded gun in his well-fitting Levi’s. He brings an arsenal of secrets and plenty of heat to Sunny’s ho-hum summer.
Jake Landon finds himself caught up in the capers of the sexy blonde in the house next door. But he has his own agenda which doesn’t involve playing hero to a curvy second-grade teacher and babysitting her panty-puking puppy. He’s got other problems like fiery explosions, a missing person…and a parade of jerks Sunny insists on dating.
Could Sunny’s Mr. Right be right under her nose? Even though Jake is gorgeous, likes her dog, and has abs she can crack an egg on, can she really go out with him if he’s just murdered her next door neighbor?

Women of all ages will enjoy this romantic comedy tale of humorous, women’s fiction, that also has a touch of cozy mystery in this small town love story.”

Mystery Novel Free on Kindle

Jim Stevens’ The Case of the Not-So-Fair Trader (A Richard Sherlock Whodunit Book 1) is free on Kindle today:

“A despicable stock trader is found buried under an avalanche of his own garden rocks, causing fired-from-the force- Richard Sherlock to be yanked off the bowling alley and whisked to the crime scene by his pampered protegee Tiffany Richmond. He must prove murder and stop payment of the twelve-million-dollar Richmond Insurance policy.
Nothing makes sense. Crime scene is a mess. There is no money trail. There are too many motives from too many suspects who have too many alibis. Worst of all Sherlock’s bad back is acting up, his ex-wife wants more money and the murder investigation is putting a serious dent in his parenting schedule of his two daughters.
Richard Sherlock hates his job, and may be a reluctant dick, but he is better at finding the WHO in WHODUNIT than anyone else.”

Dystopian Novella Free on Kindle

David Swan’s Once When We Were Human is free on Kindle today:

“In this long short-story, ‘Once When We Were Human’ the world has been divided into Dogs and Wolves. The powerless and the powerful. Unlike other dystopian tales of totalitarian governments imposed on society. The oppressive measures have been voted in by an apathetic mass excepting their fate and the destiny offered by their masters.

‘Once When We Were Human’ is inspired by Animal Farm, Brave New World and 1984. Justin the main character is a dog unconcerned as this Brave New World takes shape around him. As long as the working day is short and he can play his video games he’s not bothered. If it wasn’t for the protests from his wife Karen and her ‘artistic friends’ he’d gladly sip cocktails out in the back yard and give up all his rights. Heidi and Beauvoir are their academic neighbours who waste their time arguing about philosophical points while their best friend, Karl, a conceptual artist, keeps getting locked up for his absurdist performances. Karl is an antagonist to Justin. He has something Justin wants; fearlessness. Joe the Jew reminds us of a history we have forgotten and how the problems of the past can easily be committed again.

‘Once When We Were Human’ also draws parallels with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust and looks at how a technically modern fascist society might use propaganda and education camps for citizens who protest and challenge the state. Sunshine Valley becomes a microcosm where the characters can experience what society would be like if we gave up all our freedoms including the right to being creative. Through the eyes of conceptual artist Karl we are shown a world without creativity and how this can affect us. Almost Heaven brings in the continuing argument about assisted suicide and how this could be misused during darker times to push away the elderly and the frail. Through Justin’s eyes we are asked how much will we give up before we are forced to act?

‘Once When We Were Human’ looks at what it is that makes us human and what it means when we no longer utilize the extra faculties of our species to make a difference in this world.”
