This $2.99 Thriller Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat – April 23

Could the newest greatest thing kill you? CELLFIRE is an spellbinding new thriller that will have you finding out the answer to that very question.

CELLFIRE imagines a world where a rogue faction has decided to inflict harm by making smart phones ticking time bombs. There are four supposedly unrelated murders, but soon dots are being connected. Will they be discovered before more people die? 

Inspiration for CELLFIRE came from the repeated hysteria among the media, Wall Street and the public each time the smartest phone was rolled out. CELLFIRE’s protagonist would definitely be played by Seymour Hoffman. 

EXCERPT:

Ramlingen dragged Gilbert to a corner console and smashed his face on the metal corner three times. The Indian looked around the room, blood all over the place. He walked over and righted his chair and returned to his task. Hands shaking, a few more key strokes and he was finished. Cellfire was set.


HARRY MCCALL

35 years as a newspaper writer/editor makes for a lot of observation. I decided to take and idea for a story and see it through and now there’s CELLFIRE. Although fiction, there is much fact about contemporary life in CELLFIRE.

I enjoy many foods and all kinds of music. I don’t watch much TV, except for very old movies and C-SPAN.

DEBRA BURROUGHS

When characters become so real to you that you just have to tell their story, that’s the best time to get them out of your head and write your book. I began a few years ago writing down these stories, and they have taken on a life of their own. There are now seven of them, with a few more coming by the end of the year. What other profession lets you just make things up?

My favorite food is babyback ribs, but cheesecake is a close second. I write in my home office, which I can have complete quiet to let my mind run free. I listen to contemporary Christian music and some Country Western and my favorite TV show has to be Castle.

THE SHOPKEEPER was inspired by The Virginian. Mr. Best’s began to imagine if the Easterner was not just the narrator, but an active participant in the story. Who would play Steve Dancy? Possibly, Christian Bale or Ryan Gosling. 

This is available for $3.99 on April 22.

EXCERPT:

I passed the deck to my right, but Dooley declined to cut. When I continued to hesitate, Richard made another “Hurry up” gesture. I knew the command to deal must hide a larger story, but their faces told me this was all I was going to get, at least tonight. A man killed, but the town newspaperman and the sole doctor barely blink. This was the West, and Pickhandle Gulch was remote and isolated, but my new friends’ reaction seemed surprisingly subdued.


JAMES BEST

James Best is the author of The Shopkeeper, Leadville, Murder at Thumb Butte, The Return, Tempest at Dawn, The Shut Mouth Society, Principled Action, and The Digital Organization.

I have written for as short as five minutes and as long as seven hours. Most of the time I write because there is nothing else I would rather do.

Learn How To Make More Money With This $2.99 Guide – April 22

Who couldn’t use more money and move up in their career? HOW TO LEARN HIGHER PAYING SKILLS will provide you with the critical information to be able to advance your job and income level. 

Readers who love What Color is Your Parachute, Quitter, or The 4-Hour Workweek will like HOW TO LEARN HIGHER PAYING SKILLS.

Mr. Churchill was inspired to write this book when he realized that to succeed professionally and financially, he would have to take charge of my own learning and development to get higher paying skills. 

This book will be available on April 22nd.

EXCERPT:

As we’ve observed, the economy is ruthless. It does not care about your career, your goals, or your efforts to provide for yourself and your family. The economy does not care that your job–your source of pride and income–suddenly vanishes to reappear in another country. The economy does not care if your career is suddenly vaporized by a new technology or invention. The trend of “creative destruction” is actually no longer a trend. This is the new, permanent way the game is played. The most important skill you need to succeed is the ability to learn new skills quickly.


STEVE CHURCHILL

Steve Churchill is not an “author.” He’s just a guy who’s still pounding the pavement each day searching for business/work. He’s committed to helping people get liberated from unrewarding, dreary work. He believes anyone, in any circumstance, can teach themselves new skills and get a better career. 

My favorite thing (of late) is when people read my book (or even a chapter) and say, “Wow, that’s really good information! I’ve been wanting to change jobs for a long time now, but I don’t have the knowledge or experience to get into the line of work I really like. This book gives me a strategy for accomplishing that and finding a job aligned with my dreams.”

MAINAK DHAR

Mainak Dhar is a cubicle dweller by day and author by night. His first “published” work was a stapled collection of Math solutions and poems (he figured nobody would pay for his poems alone) that he sold to his classmates in Grade 7, and spent the proceeds on ice cream and comics. Mainak was a bestselling author in his native India with titles published by major houses like Penguin and Random House and with one of his novels (Herogiri) being made into a major motion picture. In early 2011, he began to use Amazon to reach international readers through his ebooks and became one of the leading independent authors in the world with more than 100,000 books sold in his first year.

EXCERPT: 

Only fifteen minutes since I’d entered the halls of Perdido High School and already the beady eye of authority was upon me. I hadn’t even done anything wrong.

Yet.

“Travis!” Ms. Valenzuela called out to me from the door of the guidance office. Although she was getting old, maybe into her early forties, she hadn’t let herself go. She had great legs, which were hidden today by her lime green pants. 

“Yo.” I loped over and unleashed a grin that combined sincere remorse for my failings with my irresistible charm.
