Titanic with ZOMBIESTitanic with ZOMBIES
Richard Brown

A story over 100 years in the making!

This is the story of a shipbuilder who designed the greatest ocean liner ever imagined. A captain on the final voyage of his long and distinguished career. A crew dedicated to the safety and well-being of all passengers. An unsinkable woman who stood up when everyone told her to sit down.

Oh, and there's an infection that turns hundreds of passengers into violent, flesh-eating zombies.

That's right. This ain't no love story.

Forget everything you thought you knew about the Titanic disaster. This is the zombie sea.

All aboard. It's about to go down!

Gabriella Berryngton is an unhappy and oppressed fourteen-year-old girl living in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1683. She dreams of escaping her bitter, ambitious stepfather and sailing off into the unknown.

Her dreams come true when her stepfather sells her into marriage.

Aboard the Freyja, she is hopeful that her new life in the Dutch West Indies will be an improvement - a hope that dies when she is given a slave, Klara, and a whip. She discovers that her soon-to-be father-in-law is a ruthless slave trader in league with pirates, and her fiancé is cold, unfriendly and disinterested in Gabriella. She is little more than a vessel to provide the next generation of van Eckens.

Largely ignored and desperately unhappy, she and Klara develop a friendship which makes life bearable - at first. Once married, Gabriella's life takes a turn for the worse and she descends into a world of horror and abuse until tensions finally explode. Life will never be the same and she has no choice but to take fate into her own hands.

Ill Wind is also available in the box set: The Valkyrie Series: The First Fleet with Look Sharpe! and Dead Reckoning.

Reflections on Resilience for Challenging Times: Inspirational Quotations and Life Lessons to Lift the Spirit When You Need it MostReflections on Resilience for Challenging Times: Inspirational Quotations and Life Lessons to Lift the Spirit When You Need it Most
Marquita Herald
When faced with the brunt of change, an unexpected detour or a life crisis, it is far too easy to shut down or fall into the trap of negativity which can quickly prevent us from moving forward and blinding us to potential opportunities for growth.

There are very few experiences in life that are completely unique...that someone else hasn't faced before. The perspective of others who have gone though similar situations and learned insightful lessons can simply be invaluable to help us awaken to the possibilities and replace negative scripts with positive self-talk; to lift the spirit when we need it most and to give us a reason to press on.

Reflections on Resilience for Challenging Times contains hundreds of carefully selected motivational quotations and life lessons that each in its own way illustrates that you have the power to grow stronger and more resilient … any and all self-limiting beliefs can be overcome.

A Nonentity With IdentityA Nonentity With Identity
Peter Mutanda
Challenging, thought-provoking and moving, these poems were inspired by the author's day to day life experiences, from his humble beginnings in Zimbabwe to living in the USA and Europe. They raise awareness of maladies ravaging the lives of the poor and the corruption committed by elitist members of the ‘big society’, question racial bigotry and explore the current global political and social turbulence


The Unlikely DefendersThe Unlikely Defenders
Scott Haworth
From the author of the popular Dark Moonlighting series:

What do a womanizer, terrorist, disgraced naval officer and convicted sex offender have in common? They are not typically thought of as the good guys. The Unlikely Defenders follows a large cast of characters as they struggle against both an alien invasion and their personal demons.

Through their stories a greater tale is told about an attack on Earth by a species known as the Kessiams. The insects swarm over the entire planet and affect the lives of every human being. Heroes are not enough to defeat the enemy. If humanity is to survive it will need the help of society's outcasts as well.

Time Thief (Anomaly Series Book 1)Time Thief (Anomaly Series Book 1)
Anna Hackett

"A fabulously steamy novella. Time Thief is filled with blood-pumping adrenaline and passion." - Kate, Goodreads review

For a limited time, you can get the Anna Hackett Action Romance Box Set (containing three action-packed romances), free. Visit here to find out more > (paste into your browser)

Bay North wants revenge, no, she craves revenge. Hunted for her psychic ability to steal time and forced to watch her family die, all she wants is to make the crime lord who's taken everything from her pay. But now he's set the ultimate hunter on her trail and Bay will need all her skills just to survive the gray-eyed, hard-bodied man out to kill her.

Ex-Navy SEAL Sean Archer has nothing left but a thirst for vengeance. After his team is killed in Afghanistan by a time thief, he came home a broken man. Now he hunts any of the monsters he can find, ready to rid the world of the dangerous mutation.

But when he finally tracks Bay to Denver, he doesn't see a monster or a mutation, he sees a tough, beautiful survivor who ignites a desire he can't deny. During a shootout, hunter and hunted find themselves thrust into a reluctant alliance that shatters all their defenses. Can Sean convince a woman honed in revenge that they can have more than vengeance, blood and killing?

Note to readers: This fast-paced novella contains a lot of action and adventure (think gunfights, car chases and a little breaking and entering), cool superpowers (stopping time and mind control) and a steamy romance (lots and lots of sexy steam between a muscled former SEAL and a gutsy time thief). It's a little bit paranormal romance, a touch science fiction romance with a side of romantic suspense. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

Includes preview of Book 2 of The Anomaly Series, Mind Raider.

Mannie Jackson
Mannie Jackson is President of Boxcar Holdings LLC, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball of Fame, Chairman of the Board and owner of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Chairman and a founder of the Executive Leadership Council. After a brief professional basketball career in the National Industrial Basketball League and with the Harlem Globetrotters, Jackson went on to distinguish himself in corporate life as a senior executive with Honeywell Inc, and as one the first African-Americans to serve on multiple (six) Fortune 500 boards of directors. Jackson, a former All-Ten point guard and captain of the University of Illinois basketball team, has two honorary doctorate degrees. He built a career at Honeywell as president of that company’s telecommunication business, which he built as a venture start-up by acquiring seven regionally interconnected companies and sourcing a highly publicized technology agreement with Sweden's LM Ericsson Co. Jackson went on in his career to rescue the Harlem Globetrotters from bankruptcy in 1992, when he became the first African-American to own outright a major sports and entertainment organization. In a short time the organization was revived as a dominant global brand reaching top quartile Q-ratings and accruing fourteen consecutive years of growth at an average annual rate of 14 percent. Mannie Jackson’s inspirational memoir is an odds-beating story that spans his history-making careers in sports and business and chronicles his journey from being born in a rain-soaked railway boxcar to leadership and significance.

Weight Loss Success: How to Lose Weight and Have Fun Doing ItWeight Loss Success: How to Lose Weight and Have Fun Doing It
Joan Marie Verba
A note from the author:
Like you, I have lost weight and gained it back. I have started exercise programs and not stuck to them. But, in 1979, I lost weight and have kept it off since then.
If you also have tried to lead a healthy lifestyle and found your efforts didn’t work in the past, I have good news: I have found that the secret to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is having fun.
Success comes through having fun.
Isn’t that great?
The motto that inspires me is: “Do one thing every day that makes you happy.” Why? Because when you participate in activities that are fun for you, you’ll stick with them. When you find nutritional, healthy foods that you enjoy, you’ll eat them. When you are spending your time on fun activities, you won’t have the time to be stressed (and you’ll avoid emotional eating)!

The Gandy DancerThe Gandy Dancer
Jeff Andrews

“It has it all...mystery, romance, history, love and hate.”

His career is on the rocks. His ex-wife is demanding more money. A woman he can’t even remember accuses him of fathering her child. Newspaper reporter Mitch Corsini shrugs and takes another drink. Then his estranged teenage daughter mysteriously disappears. Suddenly, his life has a purpose and he has a mission: rescue the child he's neglected for too long and rekindle the love they once shared.

Mitch’s quest takes him to the Virginia mountains and his ancestral home. There, he becomes locked in a life or death struggle to save his daughter as seventy-year-old family secrets and the fate of a long-forgotten railroad worker combine to shatter the very foundations of his world.

The Gandy Dancer weaves together parallel stories, one modern, one set in the 1930s. One reader described it this way: “Jeff Andrews...intelligently knits together two separate stories and comes up with quite a curve ball of an ending. The novel is not so easily categorized, while it contains elements of a thriller, it is also a story touching on love, racism, interracial relationships, and self-discovery...”

More Reader Reactions:

Fascinating, Suspenseful, Clever and a Very Well Written Read!“’The Gandy Dancer’ is one heck of a crime story - in fact two crime stories. Suspenseful, well written, it grabbed me in the first chapter and never let go.”

Fantastic and unpredictable“This book was one that I did not put down.”

A Great read“I loved the characters and the story line. I was sad when it ended I wanted more. I really enjoyed the book.”

Fascinating stories intertwined“Powerful and riveting stories that eventually unite. Wonderful insight into gandy dancers. Would recommend this novel to all readers interested in racial and cultural ties to the deep south.”

Loved it“I really enjoyed this book. The story hooked me from the start and I just didn't want to put it down. The characters are still on my mind!”

Unexpected jewel“Loved this story. It has it all ...mystery, romance, history, love and hate. It spans generations where family secrets are brought to light during a time when it was unlawful for whites and blacks to socialize together or find love.”

Wow page turner“I love how the two books went together...This book was full of surprises...Can't wait for another book by this author.”

Stunning history“What a testament to honoring and loving relationships. This is a must read...”

One of the best books I've read in a long time!“I loved this book. I read every day and am always looking for books I can't put down. This is that book.”

Spellbinding“A gripping story reflecting a dark period in our country's history. A poignant love story with a surprise ending.”

Cheer Up, Woman ! Be Proud !Cheer Up, Woman ! Be Proud !
Lakshmi N. Koteeswaran 'Koti'
Preface to the second edition

First, I would like to thank all those who purchased this eBook. Few of those who have left their comments deserve an extended appreciation for their time invested in my book. I am extremely grateful.

Second, the syntactic and semantic deficiencies have been addressed in the second edition. When you write a book on social subject that pulsates through the emotions, there is a temptation to include everything and this may have resulted in overlooking this fact, regretfully. Notwithstanding the cohesive structure, or the lack thereof, a reader would generally get the essence of the character. The protagonist’s motivation moves the character of the small school girl who originally was almost on the verge of dropping out of school. The sequences that follow are, in a way, to display the maturity of the young girl’s character, who, by the time the reader completes the book, assumes the confidence of a woman – ready to face the world.

It is possible that I would have packed too much within the topic and possibly narrating at a faster pace. As the velocity increases, it is but natural to assess and re-confirm the direction we are heading towards. And this has come through the feedback provided. Thank You. I hope I have now justified the pace and the direction that this book is headed towards. Where possible, I have added contextual pointers to explain the scenario as the Protagonist speaks.

Third, when you chose a topic of motivation, it is more than normal that the reader is left alone to think deeply about the situation and how that mirrors in their personal life. The young girl feels the same way and is spell bound at her inner strength. I would say that this silent introspection is also the objective of this book. Somewhere in the corner of the heart, the girl now realizes that just because a young girl does not have a boyfriend, it does not mean, she is not beautiful!

There are many young girls who strongly feel this way. Not surprisingly, this is also relevant for an adult woman, where her inner child’s voice, is suppressed for untold reasons. This book is an attempt to change their mindset that no matter what - they are unique, beautiful and powerful!

Thank you and please continue to provide your feedback. Your positive comments would encourage one more young girl to glance through this book, at the least!

Just as the Sun can comfortably keep the Planets intact and still dry the wet clothes in the clotheslines at our backyards, we could perform amazing feats when we understand the full potential of this feminine energy!

When we motivate and promote the Daughters, Sisters, Wife, Mother and every other form of female gender with due respect and recognition, we create a new world of happiness!

That is how it was! This book is a humble but hopeful attempt to bring that glory back!
