I love hearing from you! My writing is a journey of faith and exploration, and I am always willing to tackle the big questions with an open mind and willing spirit. I believe we all have the opportunity to make this world a more beautiful, powerful, and peaceful place by embracing the mysteries and power of our hearts. And I believe the reader (you) is always right. I hope you’ll join me on the journey.

The Notebook Meets the Sixth Sense in This 99c Romance – April 16

SAND DOLLAR is a heart warming romantic fantasy that is sure to have you laughing, crying and falling in love with Noah.  Noah Hartman on his deathbed describes his life of love and loss, only to discover a far greater truth.

SAND DOLLAR was inspired by the author’s life after finding a sand dollar while snorkeling in the Caribbean and how it applied to his life. Who would play Noah? Channing Tatum, of course! 

This is also available on Nook and Apple.

EXCERPT:

BOOM ! The precious sand dollar in Noah’s hand exploded. In what seemed like slow motion, the sand dollar disintegrated through his fingers into a thousand tiny grains of sand that evanesced into obscurity. “Because for me, the sand dollar represents life, and how fragile life really is. What was once so very precious to me, suddenly and without warning, disintegrated and vanished before my eyes. Just like the sand dollar, life holds no promises. Seemingly solid and secure in our grasp, the blessings we have in our lives today are easily shattered tomorrow. The lesson learned: never take your loved ones for granted. And if you’re ever lucky enough to find that one person in life who makes you love more than any other person could possibly make you love, you treat every day together as if it were your last. You cherish every moment.” “However, for me, this lesson came too late, for she was already gone, seemingly lost forever. And there was nothing I could do to put the pieces back together. I would spend my life wishing I could somehow travel back, back in time, to the day I first laid eyes on that precious beauty.” The precious beauty of Robin’s young face was shadowed by sadness as she nervously searched Noah’s worried eyes for reassurance.

Get Your Hands on This Speculative Technothriller for less than $3 – April 16

What would you do if someone offered you a solution to all of your problems – but you’d turn the world upside down if you did? And what kind of disease is more blessing than curse? It’s called the Eden Plague.

Take yourself on a roller coaster ride in this  Crichtonesque thriller – THE EDEN PLAGUE. 

David VanDyke was inspired to write EDEN PLAGUE as a new and different twist on all the plague/apocalyptic fiction out there. He wondered what bad things would happen if something amazingly good showed up, and how society would react. David imagines that Jeremy Renner would be Daniel Markis. 

This book is also available on Nook and Apple.

EXCERPT:

He kicked the man under the table, hard, somewhere near his left knee. Jenkins convulsed forward, dropping the cigarette and clutching for the pain, and Daniel reached over, put his left hand on the man’s head and mashed his face into the table. With his right he used the magazine extension of the automatic to grind out the burning cigarette. “Now you owe me for a new tablecloth.”


DAVID VANDYKE

 I’m a retired military officer, and always wanted to write. I’ve told stories all my life, in one form or another, and the idea of a second career where my work, my time and my success are my own is attractive to me. Getting feedback from fans (yes, even the bad stuff) is amazing. I ascribe to JA Konrath’s dictum: “Be Entertaining!” That’s the number 1 rule of writing a good book.

Favorite Place to Write: I write away from others in my household – even my dogs can throw me off track, though I do like my window.

Favorite music : That’s very eclectic, from Metallica to George Winston, from the B-52s to John Denver. It all depends on the mood I want to be in.

Favorite Foods : I do like to eat. Probably Indian foot is my all-time fav.

Favorite TV Show:  I guess I could say Firefly. I love stories with twists. Joss Whedon rocks.

Fall In Love In Another World for less than $3 – April 15

A reluctant witch. A vampire kidnapper. And a demonic stalker. A wild ride you won’t forget.

SOMETHING WITCHY is a wonderful young adult romance that fans of The Morganville Vampires Series and The Soul Screamers Series will enjoy.  It was inspired by a poem written by a good friend of the author’s about a love potion, and she found it both sweet and funny. 

SOMETHING WITCHY will be $2.99 on April 15th.

EXCERPT:

For several long, tense minutes, we just sat there. The time ticked by slowly, and I got edgier and edgier with each passing second. Leave it to me to get myself into a situation like this. He was probably sitting there wondering how I would taste—and I hoped I gave him food poisoning—and where he was going to hide the body when he was done with me. One bloody murder scene after another played out in my mind, and I became more and more terrified with each one. I was shaking hard enough that I was surprised I wasn’t rocking the entire car. Therefore, when Nathan reached over and touched my cheek, I nearly jumped out of my skin.


AJ MYERS

 I started writing 8 years ago for my daughter, but now I write because I…well, because I have to write. Other than my husband and my kids, it’s my one true love. True, it cuts in on things like laundry and cooking (which I’m terrible at, anyway) but it makes me happy.

A few little things everyone should know about me…

Favorite Movie: The Count of Monte Cristo

Favorite Writing Spot: Outside. Even if it’s just on the porch, I seem to work better with a little fresh air.

Most Important Writing Tool: Headphones. I have to have music when I write. They also have the added bonus of letting everyone know I’m unavailable for conversation.

Alice in Wonderland Meets Sleepy Hollow in This 99c Thiller – April 15

SHADOW SLAYER is the second installment in the exciting Shadow series. Roxie discovers that she is the shadow slayer and defends her family and friends against the shadows that seek to become human. 

Fans of Fairest or Flutter will definitely like SHADOW SLAYER. Laura Elliott was inspired to write SHADOW SLAYER from how people have chosen who they are – their good or dark side. 

This will be also available on Nook and Apple on April 15th. 

EXCERPT:

“Roxie, I caught you! I was so late because Brian’s car got a flat. He fixed it so great, I couldn’t believe it. It’s like he went to bad ass school or something,” Ally says, laughing.“Ally. We hug. I swallow hard. Brian. Fixed. A. Flat. I mean it’s not brain surgery but believe me, if it doesn’t have an LCD screen, my brother Brian doesn’t think it exists. He doesn’t know how to fix a flat. O.M.G. Brian is probably a shadow too.


LAURA ELLIOTT

I love writing about enchanted road trips, shadow worlds, and alien romance while eating lots of popcorn. I live in a tree house on the central California coast. After twenty-plus years as a freelance graphic designer/animator with clients including E! Entertainment Television and The Los Angeles Times, I crossed over into the world of publishing non-fiction and followed my heart to the world of fiction.

My favorite food is POPCORN & jalepeno chips & malted milk balls…I love my treehouse for writing and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I love listening to soundtracks from movies when I write. Words can distract me.

Here’s a $3.99 Suspense Thriller Sure to Give You The Chills – April 15

THE LITTLES, a psychological thriller, delves into the mind of a deranged serial killer as it follows the twists and turns of an FBI manhunt. Action packed and filled with suspense, THE LITTLES takes readers on a thrill ride they will not soon forget.

Readers who enjoy Iris Johansen, J.D. Robb, and Julie Garwood will like THE LITTLES.

The author was inspired by her background in psychology and a fascination with serial killers combined with her love of an impacting story heavily influenced her decision to create this series.

This fast-paced and heart-wrenching novel is also available on Nook.

EXCERPT:

With more pleasure than he’d anticipated, John ripped away the linens covering her body and simultaneously placed one hand over Kelly’s mouth and the gun barrel against her temple. 

After a long moment Kelly registered the new sensations and her eyes flew open. She heard the low chuckle and smelled the noxious aroma of sweat and dried blood. The gloved hand covering her mouth and the cold metal pressed against her head caused her to freeze in fear.

“Get up.” The voice was low, but menacing. When Kelly didn’t move, he cocked the gun, letting her know she had a choice.

“Now.” He insisted.” “Raised in the foothills of the mystical Blue Ridge Mountains, I attribute my love of beautiful landscapes and fascination with all things paranormal to my environment. The settings and characters in my novels reflect my appreciation for natural beauty as well as a desire to explore the what-if’s of things unseen. Throw in a degree in Psychology paired with a strong interest in the workings of the criminally insane mind and you have a breeding ground for a psychological thriller.


TALLULAH GRACE

Becoming an author was not a conscious decision; I’ve always been a writer. Channeling a passion for story-telling into my livelihood required a giant leap of faith, one that I’ll never regret as I truly love what I do. 

When I’m not writing, I enjoy antiquing, bead-weaving and sharing time with my incredible daughter and our two spoiled-rotten cats.” “My favorite food is anything Italian; what’s not to love about cheesy pasta? Dining on lasagna while watching any of a half-dozen reality shows or listening to Adele belt out something poignant is my idea of a good time. 

When I write, I do so in an office designed with lots of light, surrounded with accessories that make me smile. Stained glass lamps, crystal baubles, colored glass flowers and images of my family all encourage my creative process. As necessary as a beautiful atmosphere is, I really think that it’s the Pringles that help take my writing to a new level. Gotta have that salty snack when things get tense.

A Page-Turning Thriller for less than $1 – April 14

Set against a 1969 psychedelic love-in backdrop, The Girl From Long Guyland is shared through the eyes of Laila Levin when decades later, an unsolved murder pulls her reluctantly into her past. A dramatic collision of then and now – entwining family, marriage, profession and ethics.

Readers who enjoyed Gone Girl and She’s Come Undone will like THE GIRL FROM LONG GUYLAND.

The author’s inspiration came from reflecting on different periods of her life and examining what she learned from them. For her, the late sixties was an aberration from the rest of her relatively conservative life. She has found that evidently the novel has struck a chord with other baby boomers’ memories.

THE GIRL FROM LONG GUYLAND will be available on Kindle for $0.99 on April 14th.


LARA REZNIK

 I wrote my first novel at five years old and have been writing ever since while trying to hold down a day job and raise three boys. My first novel, THE GIRL FROM LONG GUYLAND was published last Nov.

The AFTERLIFE series, from international best seller Willow Rose, delves into the life of a young girl after her death. It’s a quirky romantic take on life after death. 

Fans of the Twilight series, Harry Potter, and Amanda Hocking will like the AFTERLIFE series.

The author was inspired to write the AFTERLIFE series after reading the book ‘Heaven is for Real’, about a child who died, went too heaven and came back. When his dad asked him what he did while dead and in Heaven, he said “I went to school, of course”. She couldn’t get the idea out of her head and soon the characters came alive.

This book is $2.99 on April 14th.


WILLOW ROSE

Willow Rose is a writer with big diversity. She writes young adult fiction, adult fiction, paranormal romance and horror/mystery. She never stops getting new ideas and sometimes she can’t write them fast enough. Currently 5 of her books are on Best Seller lists in USA and UK.

Favorite Food: Seafood – which is great when you live in Florida.

Favorite Place to Write: I write in my bedroom.

Favorite Music: What I listen to depends on what I write. If it is horror, then I listen to Florence and the Machine, if it is romance, I listen to James Blunt.

Favorite TV Show: I love to watch almost anything on TV. I’m a huge movie-fanatic and will stick with any TV-show if it is well-written.

My hand slipped from the doorframe and I was pulled into the apartment.

For a second my right arm was free.

I pulled Sallie’s knife from its leather calf holster. The body on top of me, with the apparent instincts of a wrestler, reached for my free hand.

He gripped my wrist, but not before I cut deep into his leg.

A massive blow thundered down on my chest; his fist, in turn, smacked the side of my head. 

Everything went dark. But I could hear. Hear my own death. Like prison doors slowly slamming shut in my head.

Award-Winning Mystery Fiction for only 99c – April 13

PIKE PLACE is a coming of age novel set in 1971 Seattle. Mystery surrounds the disappearance of a teenage girl while out with her family at Pike Place Market. PIKE PLACE is uniquely told through the eyes of a young ten year old, Bobbi Johnson, as she tries to help with the investigation where the police can’t.

Readers who love To Kill a Mockingbird, Stand by Me, and Angela’s Ashes will enjoy PIKE PLACE.

EXCERPT:

“Bobbi, come here,” Scottie whispered. “Look at this,” he giggled. Scottie was looking at a painting of a mermaid on the window in the front of the shop. The mermaid was buck naked and her mermaid tail was split in two. She was holding both ends of the tail with out-stretched arms. Scottie was staring right at her bare breasts. I grabbed his arm and pulled him away from the window and told him to close his eyes. “That’s disgusting,” I said, but he just grinned at me. I frowned back. “Scott Johnson. Sometimes I worry about you.” I walked over to my parents. Zev was talking to them. “How would you like to buy a pound of some of these freshly roasted coffee beans? And could I interest you in a coffee grinder, or do you two already have one at home?” Zev asked. I guess he wanted us to buy something; after all, we had just drunk eight cups of his coffee, for free. My mother looked interested, but then she noticed the price. “A dollar and seventy-five cents for a pound of coffee?” she whispered to Daddy. “I can get five pounds of Maxwell House for that on sale at Safeway!” My father put his arm around her shoulder and then smiled at the man behind the counter. “I think we’ll pass today,” my dad said politely. “This was sure good coffee, though. Thank you for the samples, Zev.” Daddy always used a person’s name when he talked to them. I liked that about him. The man just nodded his head and looked over my dad’s shoulder at the next person in line. We followed my parents out of the store, and I stole another look at the logo on the window. The name of the store was spelled out around the naked mermaid. It said ‘Starbucks’.


MARILYN TSCHUDI

Born and raised in the state of Washington, Marilyn Howard Tschudi is a graduate of New York’s Barnard College. She is the mother of three grown children and runs a successful home remodeling company in North Carolina. “PIke Place” is Marilyn’s first novel.

Favorite food: anything Middle Eastern!

FavoritePlace to write: I converted a windowed closet into a small writing room — it’s cozy and bright.

Favorite music: I grew up playing classical music (flute, piano and stand-up bass guitar), so I love to listen to that.

Favorite TV Show: It’s old, but I love the dialogue and characters (and the town) in Gilmore Girls.

A Chilling Urban Fantasy for $2.99 – April 13

THE REMORTAL is a culturally diverse urban fantasy – think Highlander meets Training Day. 

Book Description: Telly is a homeless kid with not much going for him until he meets a charming and mysterious man named Van. Van reveals that he is actually an immortal, with abilities and wealth beyond Telly’s wildest dreams. Van offers Telly the chance to inherit his powers and his fortune if Telly can just do one thing: find a way to kill him.

Those who enjoy Corey Doctorow, Dean Koontz, and Interview with the Vampire will like THE REMORTAL.  

Author’s Inspiration:  I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of “mentorship gone bad”, and I also like exploring concepts of death and what may exist beyond death (if anything). I combined the two interests and came up with a story about the cruel tutelage of an immortal who isn’t too happy about the idea of eternal life, and who believes that the most important lessons are learned through pain.

This will be available for $2.99 on April 13th. 


RAMSEY ISLER

For much of my life, I was one of those quirky folk known as a “coder”. I wrote computer code, not stories. I was fairly successful at it, and I had a lot of fun doing it. But my true passion was writing books and stories that would inspire and ignite the light of creativity in others, just as my favorite storytellers had inspired me in my youth. I’m still in the early phases of my journey as an author, but it has been quite an adventure so far.

My favorite things include Japanese food, gadgets, comics, and cats.

EXCERPT:

Nick came awake, trembling. Sweat beaded on his body. He ran a shaky hand over his face before glancing at the clock by the bed. Three-fifteen a.m. He’d gotten less than four hours sleep. Insomnia was proving to be a bitch. Living with the dream was even worse. Every night to be taken back in time to that day, as if watching the same scene play out, burned in his brain, he had to relive it over and over again. 


VICKIE McKEEHAN

I like to write about everyday people, putting them in difficult, real life situations, and have them rise to the occasion using their wits and strong will to overcome the obstacles to bring down their foe. And I especially like to give my readers a resolution and a happy ending.

A Heavenly Romance You Don’t Want to Miss

JUST LIKE HEAVEN is a heart warming and sometimes tear jerking story, that  follows the lives of 2 young adults fresh out of high school. From different worlds, but their lives intertwine with each other and touch those around them, finding true love in each others arms. With promises hard kept and ultimately coming to grips with the difficult decision on what is truly the most important thing in life.

The author was inspired to write JUST LIKE HEAVEN through a friend who was just like Demi. Who would play Demi in the movie version? Jessica Alba, of course. 

EXCERPT: 

Ever since high school had begun, Demi had faded into the background. She failed to do things which would make her stand out; wearing tight sweaters, make-up and dating boys. Instead she preferred to focus on her studies, much to her father’s delight. Even though she was now seventeen, she still had sleepovers with her best friends every other weekend. She enjoyed foreign films, sushi and had never dyed her hair. At high school, Demi had never fit in. To a guy like Arthur, a jock, she would be just another nerd. 


CLARISSA CARLYLE

I’m now out of my “new adult”-hood but still enjoy young adult and new adult stories. I’ve enjoyed writing ever since I could hold a pencil and with the advent of ebooks and technology I enjoy it even more. My books are full of emotion and romance, sometimes silly, sometimes tear-jerking. I’m currently working on a new adult romance series due out later this year.

My favorite food would be Italian or Thai food. Yumm.. I enjoy spending time in the library or coffee house. I really enjoy Gilmore Girls for their wit and sense of humor, but can’t get through an episode of The Simpsons without a good laugh. 🙂

A Gritty and Thrilling Novel for less than $2

BAD WAY OUT is a novel about redemption of a moonshiner set in the Tennessee mountains. Readers who enjoyed selections such as Winter’s Bone, The Silver Linings Playbook, and True Grit, will like BAD WAY OUT. 

The author’s inspiration for BAD WAY OUT was his misspent youth, or well-spent youth, depending on how you look at it. He doesn’t really write with actors in mind, but he would  go with Ryan Gosling as E.R. Percy. 

This book will available for $1.99 on April 12.

EXCERPT:

Maiden Falls is situated at the shit end of Tennessee. It’s a hill town. More hill than town, but town nonetheless. We are cursed by the corruption of lawmakers and peacekeepers just as much as any town or hamlet or metropolis built on the trampled dirt and dreams of this fine country of ours. We’ve got high unemployment, near nonexistent economic prospects, and endless misery. The one thing we ain’t got is falls. Never did, as far as anyone can tell, and no one knows nor cares how the name came to be.


C HOYT CALDWELL

C. Hoyt Caldwell is a writer with an aggravating affinity for the South, and the people it creates. The characters in his stories are loosely based on folks that both inspired and troubled him growing up in a tiny Tennessee town.   He’s not smart enough to be subtle, so his work tends to be tasteless and gritty. He’s not out to offend anyone, but he’s also not out to win anyone over either. His stories are full of sex, violence, heart, and attempts at humor.

His favorite food is pizza. Hoyt loves to write in his cluttered office. The Avett Brothers and Punch Brothers are on a constant loop. He feel like there’s nothing better than Breaking Bad on television.

Amazing Fantasy Series for less $1

It’s been three-thousand years since the last age of power, and all that remains are myths and legends. When power returns to the world of Godsland, no one is prepared; least of all Catrin Volker, who inadvertently fulfills the prophecy of the destroyer.

Fans of the Harry Potter Series, Chronicles of Narnia, and the Shannara Series will like THE DAWNING OF POWER trilogy.

Brian’s inspiration for the series came from his upbringing barn training racehorses. It was like living in another time, and that experience gave me a great deal of inspiration to draw from.

This epic fantasy adventure is only $0.99 on April 11th.

EXCERPT:

The snake, which Catrin now saw was an olive-green tree snake, was lured from Chase’s pouch by the stillness, its slender head and neck poked from the pouch, looking like a bean pod with eyes. Catrin held her breath as it slithered forward and coiled itself around the chair leg. Peten noticed Catrin’s sideways glances and gave her a snide look, tossing his long, blond hair over his shoulders. With his muscular build, strong jaw, and piercing blue eyes, he cast a striking figure, but his attitude and ego made him the least attractive person Catrin had ever met. She felt little pity for him as the snake continued to follow its instinct, which was to climb. Peten was oblivious to its presence and continued to look bored, casting his own glances to get the attention of Roset Gildsmith. The snake slithered up the slats on the back of his chair; it brushed against his curls, and still he remained unaware. He shifted in his seat, as if sensing the stares of Catrin, Chase, and Osbourne, and turned his head to glare at them. As he did, his eyes met those of the snake, and he shrieked. His high-pitched scream and sudden movement alarmed the snake, and it struck, biting him on his nose. Catrin knew the snake was not venomous, but Peten obviously knew nothing of the sort.


BRIAN RATHBONE

Brian Rathbone is not quite right in the head, but he tends to hide it well. When he’s not writing fantasy, he’s usually herding cats or trying to get kids in rural areas better Internet access. Most of the time, though, he’s banging on the keyboard telling stories or interacting with his fans on Twitter and Facebook.

Favorite Food: I’m a bit of a pizza nut, and I’ve been known to break for Philly cheesesteaks.
