This series of free ebooks is designed to promote authors you may not have tried before. In this case, Josh Pachter.
Josh broke into the mystery field in 1965 with "E.Q. Griffen Earns His Name." Since that time he has regularly produced mystery stories for magazines and anthologies, including the critically acclaimed "Mahboob Chaudri" series (collected by Wildside Press in paperback as "The Tree of Life: The Mahboob Chaudri Mystery Stories" and in ebook form as "The Mahboob Chaudri Mystery MEGAPACK®").
He is also well known as a translator of fiction and nonfiction from Dutch to English. His translation of Janwillem van de Wetering's "There Goes Ravelaar" (EQMM, January 1985) was nominated for the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Short Story of its year, and, since EQMM inaugurated its regular "Passport to Crime" feature in 2002, more than a dozen Dutch and Belgian authors have been introduced to American readers via his translations.
If you’re not already familiar with his work, here’s your chance to discover what you’ve been missing. This book contains four complete stories, one co-authored with Rebecca K. Jones (who also happens to be Josh’s daughter). So read on...and be prepared: you’re going to want to hunt down more of Josh Pachter’s work when you’re done!
- "The Night of Power"
- "History on the Bedroom Wall" (written with Rebecca K. Jones)
- "Police Navidad"

It's really simple. I needed money. A lot of money. One million dollars to be exact. The amount didn't matter. All that mattered is that at the end of that price tag held my father's life.No money. No life.The time limit was one year. On January 1st I had to pay up or my Father was going to be killed.When you're faced with an ultimatum like this, you do whatever you have to do.And that's exactly what I did.The job...Exquisite Escorts. My role, serve as high-priced arm candy to anyone that can afford the $100,000 price tag for a month of my company. Sex is optional (for me) and a 20% increase on the price.***Mia Saunders just barely escaped a paltry life back home in Las Vegas until she gets the call that her Father has been beaten to within an inch of his life for not paying his gambling debt. Problem is, the loan shark is her lousy, ruthless ex-boyfriend. Another guy in a long line of men she'd fallen head over heels for. Not anymore. Mia's mission is simple. Serve as a high-priced escort for her Aunt's company and pay monthly against her Father's bad debt. A month with a rich man who she doesn't have to sleep with if she doesn't want to? Easy money. At least that's the way it was supposed to go.Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will feature Mia, told from her perspective as she continues her journey as an escort to twelve clients in twelve different locations.Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content....Read Less

Happy Father's Day from Wildside Press:
I didn't post this earlier, because the FATHERSRULE code wasn't working for any of the megapacks I was interested in. However, after reporting this problem to Customer Service this weekend, they've fixed it this evening. Here's an excerpt from an email they sent me.
My oldest son just graduated from Carnegie Mellon (Woohoo! No more tuition payments
for him!) so that just leaved my youngest son in college (Duke -- 3 more VERY
expensive years to go). For all the other fathers who expect to spend a small
fortune on tuition payments, here are a couple of money-saving offers. (Mothers and
other readers can use them, too.)
First, here's a freebie for you (use the coupon code in ALL CAPS to redeem):
FATHERSRULE -- get a free MEGAPACK® ebook (or save 99 cents off any other product).
No minimum purchase. Just a free MEGAPACK®!
Want paper books? Here's a coupon for those, too:
DADSRULE! -- save 20% off any order of $14.95 or more.
Valid at wildsidepress.com through Monday, June 20.
OK, so here it is for anyone who wants to post anything related to any of the free books that are provided by all of the wonderful contributers in the "Free NOOKbook summary thread - please no OT" thread. This includes posts that:
- Thank posters for posting a free title
- Clarify that a posted title is a Smashwords book
- Provide a review of a posted title
- Include any information other than identifying a free nook book
C'mon, let's keep Doug's thread just for the posting of free books, so that when we see a new post is available that we are assured that it is for a book and not someone's ramblings about something else. If you need to provide any comment on anything posted there, kindly use this thread or start a separate one.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
- You might want to re-download one of the audiobooks:
I've posted upstream, in this thread, two instances of incomplete content in The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man: i.e., Chapter 3 was missing, and in its replacement audiobook, Chapter 5 was truncated.
Apparently, both problems have now been corrected. As Tubemonkey, over at Mobileread, has posted:
EDIT: I just deleted the old file and downloaded the new one. I then checked Ch 5 and found that I received the entire chapter and not the truncated version.
If you want to do the same, you have until June 23, 2016 at 6:59AM, Eastern Time to do so.

Duration: 8 hours 17 minutes
In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Three orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.
