One Shot by B.K. Stevens

One Shot  

 

When rising politician Karen Dodd pushes through the toughest gun-control bill in Ohio’s history, she thinks it’s her ticket to the governor’s office. But soon after she announces her candidacy, on the day she’s slated to receive an award from a gun-control organization, Karen Dodd is found dead in her comfortable suburban home, one bullet through her heart.

 

Suspects abound-her philandering husband, a hard-drinking former beauty queen, a smooth-talking gun lobbyist and his deceptively meek assistant, an ambitious television reporter who sees the murder as the story that could transform her career. Police lieutenant Dan Ledger puts his own life in danger as he struggles to uncover the secrets of suspects who at first seem harmlessly eccentric-but who can quickly turn deadly serious. Ledger’s used to piecing together meager bits of evidence, and he’s usually adept at analyzing the fears and desires that drive people to kill. This time, though, the motive takes him by surprise.

 

One Shot is a traditional whodunit with a contemporary twist. Packed with suspense and humor, it raises questions about issues ranging from gun control to reality television.

Re: Are you the author of an eBook? Tell us about it!

Here are three FREE short ghost stories I have available for the Nook:

 

Slow Down  

A short story about a careless driver, named Scott, who caused a tragedy. Scott was haunted by his actions. Would it cause him to change his ways?

 

The Ghost of Birch River Cabin  

Staying at a dark secluded cabin along the Birch River that his uncle owned seemed like the perfect fly fishing weekend getaway for Paul. Strange occurrences began happening. Would it be enough to prevent the history of the cabin from being repeated?

 

Winter Visitor  

Darren was awakened by a strange sound within his bedroom with a blizzard and subzero temperatures outside. He realized he was no longer alone in his room. Was someone or something after him? Will he be able to evade the visitor?

 

Thank you,

John

Re: Are you the author of an eBook? Tell us about it!

The title of my book is Hector's Juice and with a little luck and a lot of sales it will be a great american novel. After starting at the beginning of time it springs forward to the life of a gifted mexican boy named Hector Ortega and follows his family and him through much of the twentieth century. I say he gifted because he is a savant with an extrordianry ability to mix chemicals into justice releasing cocktails upon some of the last century's worst human vermin. He does however have help from the very first guardian angel assigned to our planet. That being said I've been told that the story will make you laugh and cry. Not a bad deal for 99 cents. And as a bonus, long before Stephen King wrote his best selling 11/22/63 I wrote Hector's Juice and in it you will learn who the real killer of JFK was and it wasn't Lee Harvey. Go ahead, give it a read. Who knows, you might also think it to be the next great american novel. Thanks.

Miracles are happening. Pray to God they stop.

The Missing Boatman  

By Keith C. Blackmore

 

 

In the dead of winter, on a highway in Quebec, a man crashes his car and survives. In New York, a homeless person is run over by a bus and lives. In Tokyo, a teenager jumps off a high rise building and fails in taking her own life. All over the world, miracles like these transpire, and people breathe a sigh of relief.

But for the next week, some people will begin to suspect a terrible truth. A handful will even search for it. One man will find it.

And in seven days, all hell will break loose.

(A tale of horror. Graphic violence and language.) 

 

Review (from Smashwords):

"I didn't think this was "my kind of book." But I couldn't wait to see how it ended! The beginning set-up of the novel is quite gory in spots (Personal tip for the squeamish: Skim the fight scenes; just find out who is fighting, who wins and who loses! No need to keep count of broken bones.) but humor shines through in other parts of the book. Does anyone NOT come to really LIKE the Boatman? I don't think so. By the end of the book, you know so much more about him that you have to love the old cuss."

The Mystic Travelogues by J.C. Nusbaum

The Mystic Travelogues by J.C. Nusbaum is a wonderful book for both children and adults - it has some deep ideas, and many adults will love it, just as adults love "children's" books such as The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, etc. The book is illustrated with black & white drawings by the author. DRM-free.

The Mystic Travelogues  

 

ebook is currently $0.99

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the trailer on youTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y3Tk1mIaCs

 

From the back cover:
Ten-year-old Tug is lost in the world, even to himself. Shuffled from one relative to the next, he has no place to call home and no sense of what his future will hold. But when destiny intervenes and sends Tug and his cousin Jodie to stay with a distant uncle in Vermont, they could not anticipate the strange occurrences at the enchanted old house. When their uncle disappears under mysterious circumstances, the two children begin a journey that will challenge their courage and reveal magic both underneath them and inside of them.

Travel to a mystic destination-
 where animals know your destiny,
  where dangerous Nomes lurk in the shadows,
   and where a stuffed bear can bring you to life.

Praise for The Mystic Travelogues:

"This book is a rare treat for the child in anyone, regardless of age. It combines whimsy, fantasy, imagination and a compelling plot while also fostering spiritual literacy.... A delight not to be missed!"

Throwaways by Jack Ewing

Throwaways  

 

A down-and-out man sleeping under a bridge stumbles upon the body of a murdered young woman stuffed in a trash bag and washed up at his campsite. The killers, seeking to retrieve a telltale item from the corpse, soon arrive at the bridge while following the river in search of the victim. The derelict soon finds himself hiding with the body and wrestling with the need for self-preservation, and the desire to bring the dead woman’s murderers to justice.

 

A work of short crime from our Fingerprints line.

Space: 1889 & Beyond: Ghosts of Mercury

Ghosts of Mercury  

 

Mercury: a planet of two faces – one side cloaked in eternal darkness, the other blistered by eternal sunshine. And balanced between the two is the World River, encircling the globe.

 

Professor Nathanial Stone and his ward, Annabelle Somerset visit Mercury for what they imagine will be a pleasant trip to visit Annabelle’s uncle.

 

But tragic death precedes them – a death that provokes a chain of mysterious and terrifying events that challenge Nathanial and Annabelle’s long-held beliefs. Before long, they – with the assistance of French geologist, Arnaud Fontaine – discover something ancient and powerful that has designs on humanity.

 

About Author Mark Michalowski:

 

Michalowski’s first published work was a short story in the Big Finish Productions’ collection Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Dead Men’s Diaries (Big Finish, September 2000), which was the result of a chance meeting with producer Gary Russell whilst both were visiting BBC Manchester. He continued writing short stories for Big Finish’s Short Trips range, and also for a variety of charity fanzines, before his first novel, Relative Dementias (BBC Books, 2003) was published as part of the BBC Books Past Doctor Adventures. This was widely well-received, and led to a further novel being published by the BBC, this time an Eighth Doctor Adventure called Halflife (BBC Books, 2004).

 

His next published novel was the Big Finish Bernice Summerfield novel The Tree of Life (Big Finish, 2005), followed by the story “Let There Be Stars” in the Bernice Summerfield anthology Collected Works (Big Finish, 2005) and other stories for collections by the same company.

 

A further Doctor Who novel was published in September 2007, Wetworld featuring the 10th Doctor and Martha, and a second NSA released in September 2008, Shining Darkness featuring the 10th Doctor and Donna.

 

Since then he has contributed a story to the audio play Forty Five (Big Finish, 2009) to help celebrate the 45th anniversary of Doctor Who, as well as written the Iris Wildthyme audio The Sound of Fear (Big Finish, 2009).

 

He has also contributed graphic design work to Obverse Books, designing the cover for their short story collection, Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus, for which company he also contributed a story in The Panda Book of Horror.

 

A Being Human novel, Chasers, was released in 2010, as was a short story for the Bernice Summerfield collection Secret Histories.
