20XX by Charles Mead

20XX by Charles Mead
$2.99 or FREE for Prime Members

What if our financial world crumbled? What if money was worthless and if the date no longer mattered? In 20XX, there's more to life than money and marking off dates. With a world in financial ruin, the only thing that matters is survival. Add a craft crashing to Earth and things are bound to get worse.

Nobody was really sure what the current year was. After the global systemic financial collapse in the second decade of the 21st century there was absolute chaos worldwide. Survival was the number one priority, not keeping up with the calendar. Paper money was worthless as it was backed by nothing at all.

Groups of survivors quickly formed as did immense distrust of anyone from government promising things they simply couldn’t deliver.

Two of the survivors in one community were Zac Kennedy, a former aeronautical engineer and his best friend Mark Livermore a mechanical engineer. They move to North Carolina's Outer Banks islands "on loan" to repair aircraft and life appeared to be getting back to normal, that is until some craft fell from the sky.

Redemption (Legends of Graham Mansion)

Be careful what you wish for. When the breakup of her family forces Grae White’s mother to move her two children from their privileged city life to her hometown in the mountains of Virginia, all Grae wants is to be invisible in her new life. But that’s rather hard when everyone knows that her father is the latest headline-grabbing white collar criminal, the most popular boy in school wants to take Grae to the prom, and then there’s that she lives in a haunted mansion. It would make anyone want to get away. Grae soon learns that a simple wish can reveal an unknown ability. Something more than curiosity spirals Grae back in time to seek the truth in the tragedy of a 200 -year-old murder. Along the way, she learns about history, happiness, and heartache in the lives of those who have lived on the property, including her own family. Her first journey reveals secrets that will lead Grae to further explore the legends of Graham Mansion. REDEMPTION is Book One in the Legends of Graham Mansion series. Look for the second story in the series, AMBITION, in spring 2013.

Naughty: Nine Tales of Christmas Crime by Steve Hockensmith
FREE - 11/28/2012

"It's the most wonderful time of the year," the old song tells us. But that doesn't mean the people celebrating it are always so nice. Criminals get the Christmas spirit, too!

In this collection of hilarious short stories, you'll see what the thieves, killers, psychos and scumbags are up to come the holidays...and it's not caroling door to door. Well, not unless they're casing the neighborhood for a break-in, as a rag-tag gang does in the title story. You'll also meet a mall elf menaced by a very, very bad Santa (in "I Killed Santa Claus"), a London police inspector hunting for the man who murdered Ebenezer Scrooge (in "Humbug"), a trucker out to save his shipment of Cabbage Patch Dolls from bumbling hijackers (in "Special Delivery") and many more characters you'll never forget.

Originally published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, these nine tales from award-winning short story master Steve Hockensmith (Dawn of the Dreadfuls, Holmes on the Range) are sure to have you ho-ho-hoing from the first page to the last.

Eighteen-year-old Araina was your normal teenager or at least she believed that to be true. She had only two things on her mind: graduating high school and getting away from home to start a life all on her own. But after a tragic accident claims the life of her mother, Araina is left dumbfounded and finds herself on a much different path: enrolling in the local college in Austin. Convinced that her mother’s death was no accident, she becomes obsessed with finding out the truth, and becomes disconnected from everything around her in the process.
That is … until she meets Lucca.
Lucca is the captain of the Resistance: an elite group sworn to protect Araina. He knows the truth about her mother’s death and the future attempts that will be made on Araina’s life due to her being the great-granddaughter of Leto, mother of Artemis and Apollo, which is why it is important he follow the one rule given to him: Don’t get too attached.
It is his job to gain her trust and somehow reveal her true lineage and what the fates have in store for her. Araina is about to be thrown into a world she never knew and will have to come to terms with the role she will play in the Resistance.
Will she stand up and fight or will she lose the one thing everyone has been trying to protect?
Her Life.

He walked the path back to the house they were using as their headquarters at the moment; though it wasn’t much on the outside the inside made up plenty for it. As he walked in through the door he stopped and looked to the right to stare at his own reflection. Heavy bags hung under his eyes, his tan skin was much duller and his black hair a mess.
You need to get rest. Huntir and I have everything set up so take this opportunity to gather your strength. Wearing yourself out like this will not be beneficial in guarding her.”
Lucca turned to his older brother Matteo, surprised that he had arrived so soon. “I know, I will go take a shower and get rest, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done.” He passed Matteo but not before laying his hand on his brother's shoulder as if silently reassuring him not to worry and that he was fine. Though his brother had pointed out his need for rest, his mind was running around with too many unanswered questions with no way to solve them. But one question he kept going back to was always the same, the one that would matter most in the end.
When he finally reveals the truth to her will she rise from her sorrow and be the savior they needed her to be? Or will she turn away and go into hiding like her mother did and suffer the same fate? As he got to the top of the stairs, without turning around he asked, “Why did you arrive ahead of schedule brother?” he waited for his brother to reply, a heavy silence floated between the two. He did not expect the next few words that came out of his brother’s mouth.
We have verification on who killed Aella.”

The True Story of Kill or Be Killed in the Real Old West by Eva Gillhouse Review

The True Story of Kill or Be Killed in the Real Old West by Eva Gillhouse

Westerns aren't always a favorite among women and there's probably a good reason for that. Women in the Wild West were limited to washing laundry or pleasing men. However, I've always been a huge fan of the Wild West. I love the stories of Jesse James, Wyatt Earp, and all the other heroes of the West. But, what if there was another legendary figure we'd never heard of? A story that hadn't been told over and over. Let me introduce you to Frank "Pistol Pete" Eaton.

The True Story of Kill or Be Killed in the Real Old West is a memoir of a man that hasn't been glamorized by Hollywood. A legend at the age of 16, Frank Eaton was a man who made a name for himself as a lawman, gunfighter, and much more, but his story was never told, until now.

This is a wonderful novel for those that love westerns, action, and a damn good story.

Black Magic (Howl #4) by Jody Morse and Jayme Morse Review

Black Magic (Howl #4) by Jody Morse and Jayme Morse

Now that Samara has discovered that Jason may be using black magic to become more powerful, will she be able to defeat him? And, what about Colby and Emma? Can two completely different people come to love each other? Black Magic continues the great saga of the Ima and Vyka werewolf packs and leaves readers begging for more.

Again, this was a book that was hard to put down. The entire series has been a real joy to read and while it was written for young adults, it can be enjoyed by adults as well. What I really loved about Black Magic was watching the characters grow and change, some for the better and others for the worse. I also enjoyed reading about the different couples who have been mated together.

I highly recommend Black Magic by Jody Morse and Jayme Morse to anyone that loves werewolves, young adult fiction, and paranormal romance. I give the book 5 out 5 stars and can't wait for the next book in the series. Check out my reviews of the other books in the series!

Ocean Kills by Jade Hart: Vote for Your Favorite Book Cover


Around the world, murderers and rapists pick off the innocent. Killing loved ones, separating families, and ruining lives.

As an eight-year-old girl, Ocean witnessed her family’s massacre and something altered inside her. Twisting her genetic code… unlocking an ability to teleport.

Ocean Breeze was never destined to be normal, especially being named after air-freshener. She’s a shadow, a ghost—a dark savior of the innocent. Armed with a switchblade in her bra, and a box-cutter in her pocket, she hunts the filth of the world.

Callan Bliss is a Sydney Police Officer whose skill set is far above a normal cop. All his fellow officers see is a hard-worker who loves to catch perpetrators and surf, but that’s because they don’t know his past. When Callan arrests a suspicious looking prostitute, coming face to face with a self-confessed vigilante, his secrets aren’t that easy to keep silent anymore.

Ocean hates the police with a passion, and has no intention of being held captive by a cop, even if he is sexy as hell. Teleporting from under his nose, Ocean hunts her next target—a man responsible for the largest sex ring in South Africa—and he’s about to die. But she doesn’t count on Callan giving chase, nor the body-quaking lust which consumes them. However, Ocean's dark hobbies take precedence over what her heart wants—her thirst for murdering is killing her too, and not even Callan can save her.

We take a very close look, in a devotional type of way (So its easy to read) at the topic of IDENTITY and INDIVIDUALITY.

Andrew P WestonAbout Andrew P. Weston

Andrew P Weston was born in the city of Birmingham, in the UK and grew up in the towns of Bearwood and Edgbaston. He eventually attended Holly Lodge Grammar School for Boy's where he was School Captain and Head Boy. He was an active sportsperson for the school, college and a variety of rugby, martial art, swimming and athletics teams throughout the city. On graduation in 1977 he joined the Royal Marines fulfilling a number of specialist roles both in the UK and abroad. In 1985 he became a police officer with the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary, and served in a variety of uniformed and plain clothed departments until his retirement in 2008. Over those years, he wrote and illustrated a selection of private books for his children regarding the life of a tiny kitten, called, “The Adventures of Willy Whiskers”, gained further qualifications in Law and Religious Studies, was an active member of Mensa and continued to be an active sportsperson, providing lessons free of charge to local communities. An unfortunate accident received on duty meant Andrew had to retire early from the police force, but after moving to the sunny Greek island of Kos to speed up his recuperation, he was at last able to devote time to the “Guardian Concept” he had developed over his years in the military and police. When not writing, Andrew enjoys Greek dancing and language lessons, being told what to do by his wife, Annette, and hunting shadows in the dark. He also has a magnificent mustache collection. Andrew is now contracted to Pagan Writers Press for three books. “Fairy Tail”, is a short, but dark and gritty erotic paranormal/thriller with a twist. The second book, “Guardian Angels” is the introductory book to the “Guardian Series”, a sci-fi action/adventure epic set in the near future. The latest short story, “Blood Moon”, is a paranormal action/thriller set in the jungles of South America. Further work on the Guardian Series and a new paranormal series, The Cambion Journals, has been completed and will hopefully be published during 2013.
