Five More Freebies to Start of the Month

by Alana on March 1, 2013

Murder and Other DistractionsMurder and Other Distractions
Michael Estrin
If you’re wanted for murder, the last thing you should do is smoke a joint, eat a taco, and alienate potential alibis. Then again, Ethan isn’t a very good murder suspect.

Maybe it’s just been a lousy week for him. There are layoffs at the office, poorly written death threats, and a vapid, but alluring coworker sending Ethan mixed signals. The f-buddy who loves to loathe him doesn’t understand that it’s over, and his philosophizing best friend is pretty sure that Ethan’s problem is merely the dreary momentum of the hipster ethos. Or it could be that Ethan’s pot dealer is out of baggies once again.

But the cop who’s after him doesn’t buy any of that bullshit. Despite being lazy and crooked, Boyd is damn good at his job. He’s certain Ethan murdered his ex—The Girl Who Got Away—along with her nobody of a boyfriend. And the more Boyd hounds him for a confession, the more Ethan comes to see the murders as his way out of the existential crisis consuming him. 



Finding Grace-A Transformational JourneyFinding Grace-A Transformational Journey
Kathy Gottberg
Ever wonder what it takes to be uniquely and passionately yourself in a world determined to make you like everyone else?

Grace Martin intends to find out as she stumbles from one life lesson to another. With a peculiar but supportive guide and mentor named Mrs. Pettermint, Grace slowly breaks free of traditional family and religion, and courageously explores life, relationships and various spiritual traditions seeking the answers to life’s big questions. Finally, just when she feels she is close to having it all figured out, her beloved mentor dies leaving her nearly $60 Million Dollars. However the only way to claim that inheritance and find the peace she longs for is for Grace to face the critics of her past, the betrayals of the present, and her doubts for the future.

Finding Grace shows that in today’s world it is possible to be spiritual without being religious. And for many women, the path to grace is often being willing to celebrate ourselves exactly as we already are.



Survivalist by Circumstance - Volume OneSurvivalist by Circumstance - Volume One
Cheryl L. Cholley
Darrell is suffering the effects of the downturn of the American economy. He has been laid off from his job as a stockbroker, and is taking his change in circumstances hard.

Mallory, Darrell's wife, is a nurse at a local hospital in their hometown of San Francisco. Their two children have lived their entire lives in the same home, and love The City.

When Darrell announces that he is considering a move to Santa Fe, his proposal is met with mixed reactions. Mallory is ready to pack up and move immediately. However their two children, Gemma and Preston, are dead set against the move.

I hope you enjoy this first episode in the series. The family finally comes to a decision on the move, but not without input from their zany neighbor Rick.

Because the episodes of this series are short, the price is an easy ninety-nine cents. You can hardly get a cup of coffee for that these days, so be sure to take a chance and give this new series a try. I'm betting I'll hear from you wanting to know when the next episode will arrive.

UPDATE: You may now purchase the first seven Episodes of this series in one single book. On Amazon, search for Survivalist by Circumstance - Novel One. Priced at only $3.99, you can save a few dollars by getting it all at once.

The Girl From Long GuylandThe Girl From Long Guyland
Lara Reznik
Achieved #1 in both mystery / suspense and women's fiction during Amazon Kindle promotions.

MEMOIR MEETS THRILLER: Set against a 1969 psychedelic love-in backdrop, The Girl From Long Guyland is shared through the eyes of Laila Levin when decades later, an unsolved murder pulls her reluctantly into her past. A dramatic collision of then and now -- entwining family, marriage, profession and ethics.

Laila enjoys a successful marriage and a thriving career as an I.T. executive in Austin, Texas, but she can't quite shake her lifelong sense of not truly belonging anywhere.

When her company announces a major layoff, Laila finds herself caught between an unscrupulous CEO and her promiscuous boss. Then news of her college roommate's suicide stirs up a dark secret involving three devious friends from her past. One has betrayed a vow, another wants to rekindle their romance, and the third is out for revenge.

Suddenly for Laila, it's 1969 again. She's only seventeen, and she's left her sheltered home in Long Island for college in Connecticut. Amid protests of the Vietnam War, she's tempted by the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll that rule her generation. Laila gets swept up in a deceptive love triangle with two older locals and initiated into their unethical hippie family. Too late she realizes her search to belong has led to tragedy.

Laila must now juggle the demands of her perplexed husband and her baby boomer past forcing her to make choices that endanger her survival and challenge her conscience.

She learns that the lines between right and wrong are often blurred, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

A Very Ugly Story (Very Ugly Stories Comedy Series Book 1)A Very Ugly Story (Very Ugly Stories Comedy Series Book 1)
Carry Lada
Read this story, because it is fun.

#1 A Very Ugly Story: (Short Fiction: approximately 4000 words)

Warning: In this story there are plenty of nipples. (o)(o) Don't reach for a paper towel just yet, because this is not erotica. ;)

Immerse your imagination into this silly story that will tickle your funny bone.

Quick, yummy, and probably not too good for you.

An amateur mad scientist, a very ugly mishap, some beautiful people, and a bouncing bikini babe running away to retain her beauty.

What does this all mean?

Grab some nacho chips and relax. There is some cheesey fun waiting inside.

Less than the price of a bacon double cheeseburger and just as yummy. Also zero calories.

Four out of five pretentious people roll their eyes at my story.

A quick fix. The fast food equivalent of storytelling. (No MSG Added)

Lowbrow loveliness at its finest.

Enjoy this beautiful ugliness. <3

Delusions of GrandeurDelusions of Grandeur
Jason Najum
“Reads almost like a poem . . . An earnest, soulful book about the world’s woes.” — Kirkus Reviews

A book that asks the big questions facing today's generation

DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR is part dark and humorous memoir, part relentless cultural critique. How can a people who have so much still feel dissatisfied? How does an educated but jaded society reconcile what they know with what they see happening around them? These and other big questions are examined and updated for today. If you have ever felt that more should be happening – in your life, in this culture we give ourselves to – then this book is for you.

Thousands protesting in the streets of New York. Revolutions across the Middle East. Millions of people plugged into social networks, searching for a connection, longing for a sense of community. This is not the trailer for a movie, not the hook of an epic novel; this is what’s happening today, all around us.

Using a familiar backstory and well-known cultural examples, revisiting our history to better see where we came from, DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR is a passionate and personal examination of that “something” that is missing in our lives, why this something continues to eat at us, and why we need a different approach to how we deal with it.

In a modern and fast-paced style, a compelling and common sense argument is presented for the next stage in our cultural evolution.

A must-read for anyone who's ever felt sure that there must be more than this

The parable of the Sower: and other mysteries of Christ's KingdomThe parable of the Sower: and other mysteries of Christ's Kingdom
Rick Spinos
This book offers an analysis of the parables of the 13th Chapter of Matthew through which Jesus explained veiled principles of the kingdom of heaven to His disciples. The true meaning of these parables escape the understanding of the great majority of Christians just as they did the multitudes to which Jesus preached.
