After escaping the clutches of a government testing facility, William Fay and his friends hide out in Newberry, a small and quiet town in northern Michigan. They take refuge in an abandoned mansion where they search for others of their kind. Upon discovering these others, William finds himself becoming attracted to one, Brianna Frost. However, the others want nothing more than to be rid of William and his friends, and Brianna would just as soon see them killed. Now he must win her trust while avoiding detection by the government.

Dead Man's Hand (A Calvin Watters Mystery Book 1)Dead Man's Hand (A Calvin Watters Mystery Book 1)
Luke Murphy
What happens when the deck is stacked against you…

From NFL rising-star prospect to wanted fugitive, Calvin Watters is a sadistic African-American Las Vegas debt-collector framed by a murderer who, like the Vegas Police, finds him to be the perfect fall-guy.

…and the cards don't fall your way?

When the brutal slaying of a prominent casino owner is followed by the murder of a well-known bookie, Detective Dale Dayton is thrown into the middle of a highly political case and leads the largest homicide investigation in Vegas in the last twelve years.

What if you're dealt a Dead Man's Hand?

Against his superiors and better judgment, Dayton is willing to give Calvin one last chance. To redeem himself, Calvin must prove his innocence by finding the real killer, while avoiding the LVMPD, as well as protect the woman he loves from a professional assassin hired to silence them.

Editorial Reviews:

"Luke Murphy's Dead Man's Hand is a pleasure, a debut novel that doesn't read like one, but still presents original characters and a fresh new voice." —Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author of Poison Flower

"It's always a pleasure to welcome a new voice to the ranks of mystery-thriller authors. So welcome Luke Murphy, who delivers plenty of both in his debut novel, Dead Man's Hand. Give it an evening and you may want to give it the whole night, just to see how it turns out." —William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Back Bay and The Lincoln Letter

"Part police procedural, part crime fiction, Dead Man's Hand is a fast, gritty ride." —Anne Frasier, USA Today bestselling author of Hush

"Luke Murphy writes in a clean, mean style, as compelling as a switchblade to your throat. Murphy's the real deal." —Rick Mofina, award-winning author of They Disappeared

"Dead Man's Hand is a pedal-to-the-metal thriller. Luke Murphy pours a load of talent into his first novel, and it takes off on the first page. Vivid characters and wire-taut plotting make Murphy's novel a five star read. Don't begin Dead Man's Hand if you need to do anything else today." —James Thayer, author of White Star

"What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Be glad. Be very glad. Luke Murphy puts on display the seedy underbelly of Sin City, where deceit, treachery, vengeance and the double cross are practiced like an art form. For a tight taut thriller, bet on a Dead Man's Hand." —Anthony Bidulka, award-winning author of the Russell Quant Mysteries

"Calvin Watters is an anti-hero you will cheer in this solid debut that poses twisted questions about crime and punishment." —Julie Kramer, award-winning author of Shunning Sarah

"Dead Man's Hand gripped me with terror from the first sentence. Tense! Thrilling! Terrifying! Luke Murphy is a great mood-builder on the order of Dean Koontz!" —Betty Dravis, award-winning author of Six-Pack of Blood

DRY TORTUGASDRY TORTUGAS
AFN CLARKE
From best selling author AFN Clarke this powerful novel traces an emotional journey of self-discovery between a heart broken daughter and her estranged father. “Unforgettable”, “dramatic” and “uplifting”, it’s “an absolutely beautiful story that will stay with you long after the last word is read!”

When Nikki Kimble’s mother dies, she is left with a deep sense of loss and an aching desire to find her father Jake, who disappeared from her life when she was only three. She leaves Rhode Island in search of him, hoping for answers to a lifetime of questions. But when she finds him aboard a battered yacht in the Florida Keys, their worlds collide and sparks fly, threatening to destroy the fragile bond that hangs like a thread between them. As their lives start to unravel they find themselves in the path of a deadly hurricane, perilously adrift in a raging sea on Jake’s now damaged and leaking yacht, lost in the Gulf of Mexico. Fighting for survival they face off, and emotions run high as they are forced to discover the truth about each other that neither is ready to accept.

Dedicated by the author to his daughters, this deeply moving novel explores the fragility of human emotions and the strength of the human spirit to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles that life places in our way.

Abraham Lincoln's LieAbraham Lincoln's Lie
Scott Haworth
A note for conservative readers: Don't read this book. It's just going to make you mad, and I don't want to make you mad. I'm a pretty nice guy. I just wanted to write a silly story to make my liberal friends laugh. The plot is outlandish, and it's filled with exaggerated stereotypes and crazy descriptions of conservatives that have no basis in reality. It was not designed to be accurate or to be taken seriously. Life's too short to get all worked up over this ridiculous book. If you're a conservative, I implore you to skip this and go read something you'll actually like. Or turn on the TV and watch a rerun of Seinfeld. Everybody likes Seinfeld, right?

From the author of the popular Dark Moonlighting series:

Abraham Lincoln once said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Senator Nick Bennett believes that it should not stand. Disgusted with partisan politics, Nick calls for America to be split up by political ideology. The idea of living in separate utopias is wildly popular with Americans. The blue states form the Progressive States of America and the red states create the United States of Ronald Reagan. The two new governments are free to address foreign relations, economic policies and social laws without the interference of an opposition party.

While the P.S.A. thrives, the U.S.R.R. is crippled by the inanity of its conservative ideology. A generation of its citizens receives a terrible education and loses the right to privacy. Many are killed either by an abhorrent health care system or the preemptive wars their government starts. The dreadful conditions inside the U.S.R.R. enrage the conservative citizens. Revolution seems inevitable, and the conflict threatens to engulf the liberal country as well.

Abraham Lincoln’s Lie contains political and social satire and is intended for a liberal audience. The novel takes a humorous look at how fiercely debated ideas could actually be implemented by the two ideologies.

DREAMS FROM THE DEATH AGE (The Book of Baker 1)DREAMS FROM THE DEATH AGE (The Book of Baker 1)
AFN CLARKE
DREAMS FROM THE DEATH AGE is the first book in THE BOOK OF BAKER Trilogy. This futuristic satire is a humorous, irreverent novel full of colorful characters and fast-paced events from a writer with a rascally sense of humor and a “nothing-is-sacred” attitude. And with its humor comes a more enlightened message, about the strength, understanding and heart required to survive a world on the brink of disaster.

Sean Baker is a despondent young man, a failed author who can’t even seem to go through with his own suicide. But that “cowardly” action is the first step in the fulfillment of an amazing destiny. Sean’s life changes forever when he finds a mysterious manuscript, “The Texts of Praetus”, written by a sophisticated 100,000 year-old civilization. Inspired by its stunning revelations, Sean writes a new book - “Dreams from the Death Age” - whose enlightened message resonates with such intensity that it becomes a best seller overnight. With over 75 million readers, THE BOOK is talked about in hushed whispers with a reverence usually reserved for only the most holy, metaphysical and visionary phenomenon - or for “new age” books like The Celestine Prophecy, The Secret or Conversations with God. But with blind adulation also comes the danger of misinterpretation and manipulation.

Enter Lillian Schatsheimer, the loud mouthed, outlandish and somewhat jaded campaign manager of Senator Melvyn W. Ballsfield’s bid for the 2020 US Presidential election. In an attempt to reverse his fading hopes, Lillian latches onto THE BOOK with an almost biblical fervor. She establishes the Baker Academy for the Advancement of Humanity (BAAH for short) as a “front” for her political campaign. This unwittingly sets in motion a cult movement with both hilarious and disastrous consequences.

For centuries enlightened and prophetic writings have been misinterpreted and used to further personal agendas - and BAAH is no exception. Its disciples spin out of control and both candidates for the presidency, with their self-inflated egos and outdated ideologies, resort to desperate measures to fulfill their dreams of political domination unaware that no-one is listening as they have bigger things to deal with, like the possible end of the world!

As natural and man-made disasters shake the core of humankind’s very existence, Sean and his partner Dawn, with help from unexpected sources, become the voice of reason leading those who care to listen, to safety.

But can the explosive chain of events be reversed? Or is Armageddon actually required to cleanse the world of a "mutated" humanity that has totally lost its way and its connection to its own heart and soul? Are the devastating revelations of “The Texts of Praetus” about to become prophecy fulfilled?

DREAMS FROM THE DEATH AGE is the first book in The Book of Baker Trilogy, followed by ARMAGEDDON (Part 2) now available on Amazon; and GENESIS REVISITED (Part 3) to be published late 2012.

Book length 134,979 words.

What 9th Graders Need To Do Get Recruited For A Football Scholarship: Athletic Scholarship Info (Football Recruit Book 1)What 9th Graders Need To Do Get Recruited For A Football Scholarship: Athletic Scholarship Info (Football Recruit Book 1)
Lynn West
Most college football coaches pay very little attention to prospective athletes when they are only freshmen in high school. Unfortunately, many parents and high school coaches basically do the same thing. The ninth grade is considered, by most, to be too early to be thinking about getting your son involved in the college football recruiting process.

However, here at College Athletic Scholarship, it has been our experience through helping thousands of high school athletes over the past fourteen years that a solid recruiting foundation can be started as early as the ninth grade. This, of course, depends on the maturity and determination of your ninth grade football player.

For example, is he willing to tackle the steps necessary to land a college athletic scholarship. Is he willing to learn and apply the steps in the recruiting process as they are given month-by-month? Is he willing to lay the groundwork that will put him ahead of his competition next year? If the answers to these questions are yes, then this book will take him and guide him through the foundational steps in the recruiting process.

If he does the steps as they are given, he will be prepared next year when there is a good possibility that he will see playing time. He will be familiar with basic recruiting terminology, and he will be physically fit to play for his team.

Contrary to what many people still believe, obtaining one of these coveted college scholarships is a process, and in most cases the earlier, you start the more likely you are to play for the school of your dreams. This guide is for the student/athlete and his parents that want to get a jump-start on recruiting process. Fortunately, the process is simple. It really is just a matter of starting early and doing steps as they come along.

Conservatively speaking, college football scholarships can be worth in excess of $150,000 depending upon the school and the number of years your son takes to get his degree.

Unfortunately, even in the ninth grade, recruiting mistakes can be made. If your son is determined to win a college football scholarship and you approve, this guide, written by college athletic scholarship recipients, will not only get him started off on the right foot, but it will also keep him compliant with the NCAA guidelines.
