Themis is a burnout painter who stumbles on a crime scene. Ali, one of his black neighbours, is brutally stabbed to death in an alley in Thessaloniki. Themis spots two Neo-Nazis lurking nearby and then it hits him: inspiration courses through him and he creates a masterpiece. Themis craves inspiration as much as the truth though…. But is inspiration worth dying for?

What they’re saying about it:

I was pulled into the story and in the end I wished to have more. The action in this book was so good and just enough for me to have a small adrenaline rush.

I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars because although it was very well written and the depth of development was good, I personally am not a massive fan of violence in books. However, I would recommend this read and believe that it is a brilliant look into the human psyche and also a fast paced, action packed story.

his friendship be enough?

Confronting one hilarious misadventure after another, Emily finally learns who she really is and how to seize the day . .

Desperate father Ian McKinley moves his delinquent teenage son to the small Virginia town of Keeling Creek, a place very unlike the New York City life he has been leading.

But Colby has a secret in her past, a secret she’s not sure her daughter will ever forgive her for. And as for Ian McKinley, he seems too good to be true. If she had learned anything from the one time she had thrown her heart fully into love, it was that it didn’t last.

Review from Amazon: It’s a zombie story without a zombie in sight.  It’s set three hundred  years in the future or maybe it’s right now.  Damned if I know.  What I  do know is this is one hell of a cool ride.  It starts pretty quickly  and never loses momentum.  The two main characters are easy to root for  and the main villain is very easy to hate.  There are no shades of gray  (fifty or otherwise) in this world Cronan has created.  You’re on one  side or the other and the line between the two is very clearly  dilineated.  There’s a very Alan Moore-esque feel to this and it kept me turning the pages.  This deserves your time.

An amazon uk Top 10 Bestseller in 2012

Prince Dashan has been used to getting things his own way, with servants
to cater to his every whim. As the crown prince, it is essential that he
is protected and he is followed everywhere by his bodyguard, Ryland.
Dashan can’t even head to a tavern with his friends without Ryland somehow
turning up and spoiling his fun.

Dashan disguises himself as a peasant one night and sneaks off to the
brothel that he’s heard rumours about – a brothel that caters for men who
like men. The prince finds it difficult to admit to himself what his true
desires are – he yearns to submit his will to someone else. And Ryland is
just the man to show him what that truly means.

What they’re saying about it:

“This story is well written, with strong characters. This is especially
important in such a short story…I got a good feel for both of the
characters and became sympathetic to their plight.” – Rainbow Book
Reviews.

“Her characters are so intense and real that the second you finish the
story, you’re in utter shock and denial that the characters are not
actually standing in front of you, her writing style is absolutely lovely
for she has a way of making words flow along the pages, and she knows how
to entice the readers from the very beginning (of course having a half
naked man on the cover does help).” – Reader review by Reina Lorraine.

From a Siberian prison to a Chinese temple, from a Kenyan wildlife preserve to the very ends of the earth, every answer they find only raises more questions.

And the only revelation more terrifying than the demons’ plan for the human race is the discovery of the unspeakable act committed by Zelda herself which set all of these events in motion in the first place.

&

Her fey, artistic character and magical body possess his imagination and his heart. Can he convince her to trust him long enough to save the crumbling remains of their relationship?

What they’re saying about it:

A Must Read Tale of Love and Loss

“From the first chapter of Tree Change, I cared. I cared about the characters and what had happened and what would happen to them. A riveting mix of romance and drama this debut novel by Tea Cooper is set in Sydney and the north coast. The settings are depicted with vibrancy and colour, as are the characters. Tea’s grasp of characterization, descriptive language, plot and themes of love, loss and preservation have an originality that shines through and embraces the reader until the final page.”–LorryH Amazon Five Stars

Taste The Sea
“I could taste the salt on the sea breeze as I lost myself in this delightful story about Cassia and Jake. My heart bled for Cassia when she returned to the home they had both shared to find she had been replaced by another woman. I can’t reveal more in case I spoil it for other readers but not is all as it seems. A fabulous tale of love lost and found with a decent dash of mystery to keep the heart pounding.”–Ann B Harrison Amazon Five Stars

ScavHunt front coverScavenger Hunt by Stephen Goldin

Price: $4.99
Where to Get It:
Smashwords      Amazon      Kobo     iTunes      Barnes and Noble

 *

*

It was supposed to be a game. The idle rich of galactic Society loved to invent useless little games to keep themselves      occupied–and the greatest was the Scavenger Hunt. Visit different worlds, pick up hard-to-get items that can’t simply be bought, and have a fine time. A clever way to pass empty moments.

Tyla deVrie and her twin brother, Bred, follow the family tradition of entering the Scavenger Hunt. But little do they      realize as they hop from planet to planet aboard Bred’s decadent space yacht that the Scavenger Hunt is far more than a game; it will irrevocably change their lives. That is, if it doesn’t end them first.

What they’re saying about it:

“Honestly, I could use every exclamatory word in the dictionary, and it wouldn’t be a good enough word to describe how excellent this novel is… This is one of the best science fiction novels I have ever read.”–Linell Jeppsen

“Stephen Goldin’s scifi adventure novel Scavenger Hunt is one hell of a ride in adventure land!”–T. Jackson King
