My latest erotic thriller, "EXIT" has just been released from Simon & Schuster. Would love for you to take a peek at it :-)
Product description below:
Devoted husband, rising businessman…sex addict. With his life imploding around him, Michael Palmer is left with but one option: run.
In recovery from his sexual addiction, step five was the hardest for Michael Palmer: admitting to another the exact nature of his wrongs. But his dark compulsions were ruining his life, and rather than lose everything, he confessed to his wife, Rachel.
Sordid tales of anonymous sex, degrading sex, and huge chunks of his time mired in fantasy thought. Rachel’s response was surprisingly tempered. No tearful tantrums. No veiled threats. Not one mention of telling Michael’s employer, millionaire Malcolm Ferrer—who also happened to be her father— about her husband’s reckless and humiliating treatment.
Could there possibly be a luckier man alive? Michael doubted it very seriously. So why is he now running from the life he created with Rachel? Because suddenly everything is falling apart and finding an exit is going to be tough.
The Spaces Between - New Off-Beat Fantasy!
Where bumbling adventurers and an idiot man-child try to find a dangerous warlock in the heart of winter... served with a side of secret orders and demons.
Let us travel down a well-worn road, but take a few diversions. The Spaces Between may start off down a familiar path, but it quickly spins out of control, and we find ourselves engrossed in a captivating series of events that end quite unexpectedly. The ending is by far one of the most surreal and unique in the genre.
The land is Belden, and it is a small, peninsular nation, bordered by the mountainous and rugged Welcfer to the north. It is seemingly flat and meaningless and full of flat and meaningless people. Magic is wielded by those who show ability at a young age. While there are spells with names, the actual working of magic harkens more to the use of atomic energy or quantum physics--it is all in the spaces between the particles. The energy is not created, and there is no flow of magical power, but mages and warlocks harness energy already that is omnipresent, string it together, and create their magical spells (basically they are harnessing subatomic power, but they have no clue that is what they are doing).
A drunken lout (Zhy) meets a traveling mercenary (Qainur) who somehow convinces him to go on a great quest to the north to learn magic from a warlock stationed there. Along the way they meet a mage (Torplug) who is strangely without a horse. He agrees to follow for a short distance, but ends up staying with them as they have a few run-ins with trained assassins, an exotic liqueur, and the requisite demons.
When the travelers reach a large city, the story introduces a simple-minded individual (Bimb). In modern terminology, he would have Asperger's syndrome, or mild autism. In the fantasy land of Belden, he's "simple-minded". This perspective is told from the first person, in order to view the world through the eyes of someone simple and naïve. While he lacks basic skills, he is a talented musician and is good with complex numbers. And when he plays music, the dead can sometimes talk to him. One such deceased person visits him, and happens to be the father of the main drunk character. Enter another major cliché. But the first-person POV of Bimb is quite unique as we see how the world works through his eyes.
I did have this book listed earlier in this discussion, but I have extensively rewritten it since then. So if you enjoy mysterious haunted house stories, please consider reading a sample:
The Wahl House Curse is $2,99
Peter Corbin was in need of a change with his job as a realtor in a busy Michigan suburb. A chance to transfer to a small town in mid-Michigan seemed to be what he and his wife Sarah needed. They purchased an old house for a bargain price without much regard for the troubled past. This proved to be something he would soon regret. The restless ghosts quickly made their presence known.

Here goes, I am the author of 1923 and it is $1.19 on Nook
1923: A Memoir tells of a time and place when life, full of raw emotion, was never so real.It's a personal as well as a social history. Smith has the knack of bringing the times to life in a way that few writers can manage. It's the ability to tell a story, the knowledge of when to move on & not labour a point.
1923 is a book that succeeds in two ways with ease, both as a personal memoir of a life lived in a volatile age and as a record of that age for all time. --The Current Reader
"1923" is uplifting and highly recommended. --Midwest Book Review
1923: A Memoir is a protest against social injustice, corruption, war, famine, poverty, and societies blinded by greed. More importantly, it is the story of hope and the notion that anything can be overcome if desired. --The Publishing Guru
Product DescriptionTo say that Harry Smith was born under an unlucky star would be an understatement. Born in England in 1923, Smith chronicles the tragic story of his early life in this first volume of his memoirs. He presents his family’s early history—their misfortunes and their experiences of enduring betrayal, inhumane poverty, infidelity, and abandonment.
1923: A Memoir presents the story of a life lyrically described, capturing a time both before and during World War II when personal survival was dependent upon luck and guile. During this time, failure insured either a trip to the workhouse or burial in a common grave. Brutally honest, Smith’s story plummets to the depths of tragedy and flies up to the summit of mirth and wonder, portraying real people in an uncompromising, unflinching voice.

Science Fiction AdventureThe fate of the universe rests in the hands of one man.
... the universe is so screwed.
A hero in a whole other life, pilot Nick Pike has since made it onto all the wrong lists – with his name right at the top of God’s To Stomp list. He’s found, however, his own Garden of Eden in the form of an intergalactic cargo-hauling business he runs with his friend and former teammate, Darby. But, like any Eden, this one comes complete with a snake.
When his sorely-in-need-of-repairs ship, the Pike’s Pique, makes an emergency landing on a planet straight out of the Ming Dynasty, that snake appears in the guise of a former – and definitely to be avoided – business partner. And the apple he holds out is a fast and easy job of transporting an accused killer to a local warlord. The bounty offered for his capture and delivery, he promises, will be more than enough to get the Pique up and flying again.
With creditors hounding them and with no other prospects in sight, Nick gives reluctantly in to temptation and takes a bite out of that apple. All, however, is not quite as it seems. In fact, nothing is at it seems. Nick and Darby must then band together with an unlikely crew as they try to keep a little knowledge from being a very dangerous thing.
Thank you for this opportunity to share my story. I am the newly published author of Apologies From a Repentant Christian, and my name is Donna L. Young.
The back cover summary of the book reads:
I called myself a Christian because I wore a cross, prayed to God and attended church regularly. Yet, I lied, gossiped, and judged others without mercy. I misrepresented my God with my behavior, attitude, and words. Such was my life.
In my prayers I asked for God to use my life to glorify Him, but was ill prepared for the response. I was arrested and charged with a felony! In deep and dark despair, I turned to Jesus Christ for help, and He was there to save me, as I sorrowfully repented for my past sinful behavior! Jesus transformed my heart and I was blessed with unimaginable peace and joy.
This is the story of the healing power found through Jesus Christ. I am living proof that people can change and that choosing to live a righteous and holy life brings joy.
The book is available Now on Barnes & Noble.

This looks very interesting, wish listed it. I have two new books coming out in series that I'm reading tomorrow so they get read first.
“Local Boy Makes Good, Dies of Trying Soon After.”
Fearful of this epitaph, Gary Gray seeks to avoid career pressures by working as a temp. Unfortunately, Gary repeatedly gets into trouble by being too conscientious and outperforming the permanent employees. No matter how hard Gary tries to be a meek office worker, he can’t seem to stop himself from becoming a competitive threat to his co-workers and superiors. Meanwhile, Gary’s girlfriend is smart and beautiful, and he just might be able to hold onto her if he can stay employed and quit accidentally mooning her mom.
Gary runs afoul of a host of difficult characters in the workplace. Marge Meko is thoroughly incompetent, but she has “the goods” on the boss, so she easily gets away with blaming her errors on Gary. Marge’s boss, Steve, wants all problems swept under the rug before they become an inconvenience to his cushy position. Rae is a secretary with an overblown ego, intent on consolidating power by crushing all her perceived competitors. Gary is convinced that College President Burton is a mere figurehead, pulled from the ranks of the indigent and propped up by Rae, the power behind the throne. Through his trials Gary comes to the amazing revelation that it may actually be less painful to die trying than to live the “easy” life of the temp.

New & natural way to weight loss. Not another diet and vigorous exercise or some nutrient, vitamin, hormone, and drug that I am promoting. With child obesity at national emergency levels (that has involved first lady Michelle Obama now); it is time to treat those fat, unhealthy, undisciplined, drug infested bodies with a technique that works. This book is here to help you with that. Good Luck!
Ranging from the crumbling ramparts of the Great Wall of China to the breathless heights of the Himalayas, John Dwyer travels across Asia's wildest regions and celebrates the journey rather than the destination. Follow his adventures in China, Tibet, Nepal and India as he describes how he drank snake blood, was smuggled into Tibet, and watched the dead being cremated on the banks of the Ganges.
You [John Dwyer] really do give an authentic feeling of the contrasting atmospheres as you move from place to place. - Dervla Murphy, international best-selling author of Full Tilt.
If you really want to find out about Asia, this book is a must buy for you. - Bibi Baskin, television and radio presenter.
It takes a very good travel book to make a Corkman want to leave his home-town - but one such book is High Road To Tibet - Evening Echo.

███████ Other grownups disrespecting the magnificent teenage brain
Jasper Biggs is the egghead son of egghead parents. He lives in a town full of dweeb scientists the government has kept in seclusion for several generations, nurturing and crossbreeding them for military purposes. Brainville's adult softball leagues, and most school sports teams, are a complete joke.
The strange thing - these communities really exist. They sprang up around Roswell and Area 51 back when we discovered that teenage alien joyriders were out causing trouble and crashing their dad’s flying saucers in our deserts.
The bad news - the Directorate, which controls these research towns - has discovered a comet on a collision course with the United States. Will this mean the end of civilization? Will the young heroes outwit their robot foster-parents and creepy men-in-black to save the planet?
When Jasper's parents disappear, he gets stuck with Papatron, a bizarre collection of abrasive circuits, moral inconsistencies, and his father's illogical ways.
But something's freaky about this whole "End of the World" scenario. Will his magnificent mind decipher the clues and help him lead his ragtag group of science junkies to the truth? Or, will that enchanting girl from the next town over - the one who can paralyze him with a single glance - turn out to be radioactive, or maybe a witch?

My name is Matthew Miller. I have recently published my first short novel, SHADOW OF THE MASTER for both the Nook and Kindle platforms. The book is a collaborative effort with my late mother. She had written a "framework" manuscript about 30 years ago, shopped it around briefly to publishers and, getting no bites, packed it up. The manuscript had lain dormant for a number of years. My mom passed away in 2009 and, in the aftermath, I remembered SHADOW.
I asked my dad if he knew where the manuscript might be. He was able to find it and I asked him if he had any objections if I took a stab at revising, updating, and reworking it and going the self-publishing route. He was thrilled with the idea so I went forward with it.
SHADOW went live on both platforms on Sunday. It is a short novel that provides a new perspective on the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as viewed through the eyes of a "thirteenth disciple": a stray dog that decides to accompany Jesus on his journeys after He shows him kindness. It is an exciting, Biblically-based story that is written to appeal to readers of all ages.
I am also hard at work on my first full-length novel, STILL SMALL VOICE, which I anticipate completing and publishing in spring 2012.
