Scientific Thriller 99c for Kindle

Editor’s Note: PERFECTIBLE ANIMALS is an intriguing thriller that makes you think. 

Book Description:  Michael Khan, a geneticist struggling to modify the human immune system to save his wife from a deadly virus, is recruited by a secret organization to engineer the next stage in the evolution of Homo sapiens before society collapses, but he is arrested for bio-terrorism. Will he save his perfect, cooperative, disease resistant children before the government destroys them? And if he does – will Homo sapiens survive?

Author’s Inspiration:  I love a good thriller but find most of them are too focussed on action and lack interesting ideas. I like books that make you think, but often they lack excitement and emotion. So I wanted to combine the two – a fast paced, exciting read that makes you think at the same time.

L. T. Ryan  

I was eleven years old when my uncle handed me a worn copy of Stephen King’s The Shining. I had always been a voracious reader, but mostly young reader books up to that point. The Shining opened my eyes to a world of new possibilities. I knew at that moment…I wanted to be a writer. As a teen, I wrote stories, mostly horror, featuring my friends and family. Disturbing to them, captivating to me. I continued writing through college and then sporadically into adulthood. Work and family and life interfered… Until I conceived the character Jack Noble. That’s when it clicked, and my writing took off. Now, I’ve completed six Jack Noble novels, two books in a sci-fi/horror series, and the first in a new detective series.

Captivating Mystery Discounted for Kindle, Nook, and Apple

Editor’s Note: NEW YEAR ISLAND is a gritty modern reimagining of Agatha Christie’s classic, And Then There Were None

Book Description:  Ten proven survivor types, who faced death once before and walked away from a situation that would kill most people, are recruited by an edgy new reality show. Marooned on an abandoned island overrun by wildlife, they will compete for a vast prize in cash. But nothing is as it seems. All of them are hiding secrets. Soon, they will find themselves trapped in a game so deadly that the most terrifying experiences of their lives were only its qualifying round. This time, maybe there isn’t meant to be a winner…

Author’s Inspiration: It’s all my wife’s fault. She works in the medical field, and she got me intrigued by mentioning “survivor types,” the small minority who somehow manage to beat the odds time and time again, unlike the other ninety percent of people, who freeze up or under-react in an emergency. I was fascinated. After researching the psychology of the “survivor personality,” devouring tons of real-life survival stories, and reading scholarly articles by psychologists studying reality shows like Survivor, I was left with three burning questions that sunk their hooks into my brain and wouldn’t let go. Two of those questions are answered early on in New Year Island. The third question led to the rest of this story.

I currently live in Palo Alto, California, with my wife and three daughters, and love scuba diving and swimming, but after one too many high-speed motorcycle crashes, I’m not allowed to own open-class sportbikes any more, which is probably a good thing for me and everyone else. 

My other life includes a tech-heavy background in both the aerospace/defense industry and the video game industry. I became an author to write the kind of books I always wanted to read, but could never find enough of.



Staff Pick: Headhunters (The Movie)

Hello. I’m Taylor. I work here. Let me tell you a story. 

Last night, I was browsing Amazon Instant Video (typical Thursday evening activity) trying to avoid watching the same Office episodes for the umpteenth time (don’t judge). My husband pulled up HEADHUNTERS. A Norwegian film.

Okay, fine, I said to dear husband. If it’s terrible, I have to take a shower anyway.

10 minutes in, I was engrossed.

HEADHUNTERS is based on Jo Nesbø’s book by the same name. I haven’t read it – but now I want to.  The story is in the same vein as Steig Larsson’s novels. Mystery fans, you’ll love this one. Jamie Lannister’s in it as well (okay, not Jamie Lannister, but the guy who PLAYS Jamie Lannister). The cinematography, dialogue, and acting are all on point.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can watch HEADHUNTERS for free (like I did).

I wrote my first story at the age of seven and didn’t really stop. After years of trying to get published, picking up an agent and a Debut Dagger shortlisting on the way, I decided that self publishing was the way forward. That way, I can write what I want to write, pick the covers I want to pick and be free, to do what I wanna do. I like to go to dark places, literally and metaphorically, but smile a lot too.

Writing is nearly an obsession for me. I’ve been writing since I could string words together and put pen to paper. Character creation is my strength, which means that each character comes alive to my readers. I also have a warped sense of humor that comes across in my books. I enjoy writing off-beat characters, characters with serious issues and characters that just resonate with my readers.
