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 apocalypse...at sea.

All aboard. It's about to go down!

#1 Bestseller - Sea Adventures
#1 Bestseller - Caribbean Historical Fiction


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 three-book box set, The Valkyrie Series: The First Fleet with Look Sharpe! and Dead Reckoning

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.”

James Blond - Stockport Is too Much: James Blond's most dangerous mission yet!James Blond - Stockport Is too Much: James Blond's most dangerous mission yet!
Terry Ravenscroft
Imagine if James Bond author Ian Fleming had lost several of his marbles and been given a sense of humour along with his action/adventure writing skills and you will get some idea of where Terry Ravenscroft’s James Blond – Stockport is too Much is coming from. If not going to.
Compared to foiling the plans of countless power-hungry villains bent on world domination the bringing to book of the evil Dr Goldnojaws, who only wants to dominate humble Stockport, shouldn’t present too much of a problem for James Blond. However in addition to taking on Goldnojaws and his evil sidekick BloJob, the secret agent has to wrestle with a prostate problem, so things aren’t as straightforward as he would have liked. To make matters worse Blond Girls Pisa Vass, Divine Bottom, Gloria Snockers and Ava Shag aren’t as forthcoming with their favours as he has come to expect.
We join the rip-roaring adventure with Goldnojaws, having seized Stockport, making plans to dominate the rest of the world. Can Blond stop him whilst still finding time to have a pee every twenty minutes? And get laid again, once in a while?
As gripping as Sean Connery’s toupe adhesive, as exciting as Daniel Craig’s swimming trunks, James Blond -Stockport is too Much is a bigger page turner than a homosexual king.

Just one of many 5 star Amazon Reader reviews -
I’d come across Terry Ravenscroft quite recently via an author peer review site, and was delighted to discover how many amusing books he had written. This one lives up to the standard of the others I’ve seen, and keeps carefully just on the tasteful side of crude - I don’t like crudity, sick humour or ‘smut’ but Terry somehow manages to avoid these things while still dealing with the fundamentals of human existence. And James Blond’s spoof credentials don’t stop him from reminding us sometimes of the original, which highlights Ravenscroft’s skill in humorous writing. There are even aliens!
Janey Fisher


James Blond - Stockport is too Much contains some sex scenes and strong language.

Three Great Freebies Today

by Alana on January 25, 2013



College CollageCollege Collage
Scott Haworth
From the author of the popular Dark Moonlighting series:

Nick Bowman, like most college freshmen, is a terrible human being. He’s arrogant, argumentative and rude. He knows that he is smarter than all of the students and most of the professors at his school. Nick is not liked by many people despite the fact that his rants against higher education are usually accurate.

Sex, drugs and Karl Marx. Nick knows that is what the college experience is really all about. The Ohio State University is wasting his tuition money and all the other students seem to be too drunk to notice. At first the only thing that seems worse than the school's bureaucracy are Nick's two roommates. Drew Gaul would do much better academically if having sex and drinking were majors. Chris Dawson, a conservative Christian, appears to be Nick's enemy in the culture war. Nick soon finds that his first impressions of his roommates are not entirely accurate. The three young men are inseparable by the end of their first quarter at OSU in the autumn of 2001. The fun times do not last for long. Nick's roommates are on a collision course that threatens to end both a friendship and a life in this darkly humorous novel.

The Journey (Guardians, #1)The Journey (Guardians, #1)

Now, they must journey together to the ruins of an ancient city, in search of the magical gateway that would take him back home.
