Re: Smashwords freebies worth considering

Here are my four free short ghost stories published through Smashwords:

 

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?

 

Denning Swamp - A Ghost Story  

 

Strange sounds emanating from the swamp startled Jack during the night. Alone in the house, he wondered what was outside. Would he determine what was tormenting him before it was too late?

 

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

Wired, A Jade Weekes Art Mystery

 

Author: Judith Gaines
Pages: 239
 
Jade Weekes emerged from the oily wash of the Seine five years ago with no memory of her life, but an uncanny knowledge of fine art, museum security, and a knack for walking away with priceless treasures. Now she's tracking an elusive Van Gogh with ties to an underworld struggle that will reveal her forgotten past.
 
Jade Weekes leaves Paris to track a priceless Van Gogh from St. Pete to Chicago. Her contacts are shady and she is beginning to think there is more to this job than a buyer wanting a gift for his wife. Otherwise, why would Simon Morrell, a rival thief, cross her path just as the FBI begins asking questions?
 
Caught up in the six billion dollar international art theft industry, she enlists help from unlikely sources: film actor Alex Ford, and veteran FBI specialists Stewart Connor and John Young.
 
No one is who they seem, most of all Jade Weekes.

Guardians

 

By Lola St.Vil

 

 Description 

 

The prophecy says I will fall in love with team leader and Angel, Marcus Cane. The prophecy also says that our love will cause his mission to fail and end the world.

 

 Whatever.

 

This human is not worried. Why?

 

Because I do not intend to fall in love with Marcus.

 

 The truth is I hate him. I hate his warm brown eyes with flecks of gold, his chiseled face and broad shoulders.

 

I hate how over protective he is just because a few thousand demons are after me.

 

 In fact, I couldn't care less about Marcus or his perfect telekinetic girlfriend.

 

And when I see him holding her, I don’t die a little inside…

Guess What She Did

 

By Ann Reardon

 

Overview

 

Georgina Graham doesn't relish lying to Dr. Nate Carmichael. But if the ruse works, she'll make a quick score. The deception plunges Georgina deep inside the swirling vortex of a wealthy California enclave's colorfully scheming inhabitants — Alejandro, the shady vulture capitalist — Lauren, the social-climbing diva — Jake, the wily racehorse trainer out of Kentucky — and scary smart Detective Sam Mori, a strangely beautiful woman in the grips of a bizarre obsession. And now the ever-so-engaging Dr. Carmichael has just laid a tender kiss smack on Georgina's mouth. Can her already chaotic life get any more complicated?
Of course! Throw in a dead body and an unexpected autopsy finding, and watch Georgina's high-octane world come crashing down around her.

Enigma

 
by Wolf Black

 

Dick Love is a 42-year-old detective from New York now living and working in London. When a serial killer starts preying on young mothers, it's up to Love, and his sophisticated partner Stuart Le Fanu, to employ their MI6 state-of-the-art equipment along with good old-fashioned detective skills to discover the identity of the killer before he can strike again.
 
Love hates technology but appreciates two things: the company of a good woman and retaining his single status. And if given the choice he'd just as soon stay alive.
