The Eden Plague (Plague Wars Volume 1), by David VanDyke. (Still free?)

Try this Sci-Fi techno-thriller by David VanDyke - a former US Army Airborne enlisted Soldier and US Air Force intelligence officer.

"There's a lot of action for you action junkies - the hero is a special-ops guy in a somewhat different mold - he's a kind of combat medic. But there is a lot of thought as well - moral dilemmas, ambiguity, what's the right thing to do? There's a love interest that seems more about driving the action than supplying real romance - "woman in peril" and all that. If you are primarily a romance reader this is not it. It's an action technothriller." -- Kira, Amazon reviewer


Special operations veteran DJ Markis finds armed invaders in his home and it all goes sideways. On the run from the shadowy Company, he turns to his brothers in arms to fight back.

The Eden Plague is a science-fiction military techno-thriller in the tradition of Crichton, Koontz and Heppner.

With warm characters, a enduring child, and house full of wonderful secondary characters, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS comes highly recommended. " -- C. Penn, Amazon reviewer



Sometimes fate needs a little hand...
Santa Claus is going to have a rough season... Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag.

But this Santa has a plan...

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone's trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

Points To Ponder: Pathways to Self-Discovery, by John D Mosley. (Still free?)

This 100-page book is free today.

From the Rebecca Review: "He begins his book with a thoughtful discussion about life and how we live busy but unsatisfying lives. He explains how we can be less stressed and more balanced. The section on how we should practice gratitude gave me a lot to think about. I could especially relate to the author's thoughts on how distraction is the enemy of discipline and how materialism doesn't bring happiness. I also liked the explanations on why we need adversity in our lives."

It discusses key topics involved in the ongoing inquiry and practical exploration of a purposeful life.
 

Presented are timeless concepts that transcend cultural boundaries. Life's journey is one of forward motion, yet each individual's path is different.
