"It's a page-turner! I generally read to relax and put myself to sleep, but this book kept me up most of the night. Stelljes has done his homework - the story has credibility and enough suspense to hold your attention. Great work for a first-time author - I'll be watching for the next book." -- Amazon reviewer

Award winning author, Roger Stelljes, delivers an action packed story that is the 1st book in the McRyan Mystery Series. Stelljes' vivid characters, his gift for GRITTY and REAL DIALOGUE (slang, jargon, behind the scenes dialog), as well as his uncanny sense of place and time, will put you in the middle of the action allowing you to feel the desperation of Mac McRyan and his fellow detectives.

Murder... Greed... Treason...

The morning after Halloween the city of St. Paul awakens to find that a serial killer terrorizing the blue-collar working women of University Avenue has struck for the fifth time. The citizens of St. Paul are on edge.

Thirty-two-year-old fourth-generation St. Paul Homicide Detective Michael McKenzie "Mac" McRyan thought his day was going to be less stressful. His day would involve paper work, coffee, and maybe even an early trip to the pub. Then his cell phone tells him his day is about to change. A body has been found in a high-end condominium between Summit and Grand Avenues; and it's not just anyone.

"Your day just got worse," Mac tells his captain.

The victim is Claire Daniels, the Twin Cities' most prominent political and investigative reporter. Claire was stunningly attractive. She had blonde hair, blue eyes and a curvaceous body she worked on relentlessly. Claire was the desire of every man in town.

With the Daniels murder on top of the latest serial killer attack, the political and media pressure on the St. Paul Police Department only builds and places Mac in the middle of a dangerous and high-stakes murder investigation that will ultimately have national political and security implications.

99 cent sale (REGULAR PRICE $3.99)
- Fleeing total annihilation; suffering deep loss; finding inner courage, discovering real magic; stumbling across a new love.

A young princess thought she lost it all: home, family, and country. And she did. But what she gained in the process was a true friend and loyal protector, a new country to learn to love, and a secret holy quest that holds the promise of saving them all...

The usually secretive kingdom of Venordaladia is suddenly driven to world conquest by their new evil overlord, the Sorcerer Shutharja, who mysteriously rose to absolute power there overnight. This self-proclaimed cleric of the forbidden worship of the Fallen Spirits unleashes a massive attack of shock and awe upon the peaceful kingdoms surrounding the Imperial Sea. Now, the enemy horde gathers in the occupied kingdoms poised to complete their total domination...all for the glory of their overlord.

With her beloved kingdom of Palzintine ransacked and her dear parents thought slaughtered in the battle to defend her homeland, young Princess Angelterra and her wheatish-skinned protector, a lady knight named Jeela, must flee for their lives. During their desperate flight to a safe haven, the two young women are hunted by possessed creatures and dark agents of Shutharja as they try to reunite with the rest of their countryman, who are now refugees huddled in a neighboring kingdom. Unlike most princesses, Angelterra now has no court, no throne, no home, and no parents, but she must, nonetheless, learn to inspire her people to stay strong and resist the enemy.

During a chant ceremony, Angelterra experiences an intense, lucid vision, the Vision Dream. In this strange, wonderful vision two cryptic quest-riddles are bestowed upon her by the Spirit of the Heavenly Father. She realizes she must find a way to decipher these riddles, for she is convinced that they hold the key to once and for all thwarting Shutharja's ambitions. The young princess discovers that the Heavenly Father only reveals such quests to those whom he has chosen to be his Vessel. Angelterra must also find a way to make peace within herself over her new spiritual duty and her budding talent in the use of powerful magic, a talent she tries to deny she possesses.

All the while, she finds her heart in conflict over two men. The first, an exiled prince and fellow freedom fighter whom she has always secretly loved, a man everyone believes she is destined to marry. However, the cruelty of fate rips this childhood friend from her and gives him to another. The second is a man to whom she is unwillingly, yet passionately, attracted, a man who despises everything her station brings. And yet...she cannot seem to get him out of her mind.

Meanwhile, the leaders of the remaining kingdoms meet to try to find a way to forestall Shutharja's terrible push for conquest. On their way to the allies' council, Angelterra and Knight Jeela are visited by a pack of suspect mercenaries with news about her parents who were thought to have perished in the first wave of the attack. Against her knights protests, the princess follows these men into the night as she desperately clings to the hope of finding her parents alive...
This epic fantasy continues with Part Two: Daughters of Thine Lesser Evil (B00A2Z2ZVU), as clues to the meaning of the vision dream quest are revealed as well as the allies' plan to fight back.

****Part Two: Daughters of Thine Lesser Evil (B00A2Z2ZVU) is on sale 25% off until April 16th!

Bad Way Out, by C. Hoyt Caldwell. (Still 1.99?)

Readers are laughing, crying, and racing through the pages of this unique book - a racy thriller written in a unique style.

"A bizarre discovery by straight-talking moonshiner E.R. Percy is just the beginning in this cleverly executed countrified thriller. Realistic "down-home" dialogue and humor and nicely fleshed out characters highlight this tale of a simple man who finds himself facing a tempting moral dilemma even as he becomes embroiled in a terrible mystery. The recurring theme of family throughout the story makes this engaging thriller endearing as well as exciting. Hang on readers, because y'all are gonna have some fun with this one! Highly recommended!" -- Amazon reviewer

E.R. Percy’s whiskey making days are turned upside down by the sudden appearance of a giant naked man, an unsavory job offer from a drug dealer, and a sultry local girl hell-bent on making it as difficult as possible for him to keep his vows to his wife. He wants nothing more than to sell his illegal wares and be left alone. Unfortunately, the whiskey man is about to come to terms with the only way for that to happen: the bad way out.

Just Like Heaven, by Clarissa Carlyle. (Still 2.99?)

In this heartwarming story, the lives of high school quarterback Arthur Cooper and the scholarly Demi Mitchell collide in unexpected ways.

"This captured my interest, pulled me in and kept me turning pages from the opening to the conclusion. It's well written and fresh. I felt like the characters had real depth, and the issues that they were dealing with were meaningful. It talks about the stories of these characters lives - how they became who they are, peer pressure, family influence. It also speaks to making ones own way in the world. A good book. I enjoyed it!" -- Amazon reviewer

Arthur Cooper is the star quarter back and all round heart throb of Collinswood High School. Demi Mitchell is the A-student girl who likes poetry and dreams of following in her lost mother's footsteps of becoming a nurse. When Arthur and Demi's worlds collide they touch each others lives in a way neither of them could ever have expected.

But what happens when you don't get the happy ending?When the love of your life leaves...can you pick up the pieces and is there any hope for a future?

In this heart warming and sometimes tear jerking story, follow the lives of these 2 young adults fresh out of high school as their lives intertwine with each other and touch those around them, finding true love in each others arms, promises hard kept and ultimately coming to grips with the difficult decision on what is truly the most important thing in life.

This is a story of young love you will not soon forget.

The Seals of Abgal (A Guardians of the Seals Tale), by Woelf Dietrich. (Still 0.99?)

All five-star reviews and much reader praise for this paranormal fantasy! 99 cents today.

"What a cool, engrossing story. It has the beginnings of a paranormal adventure interweaved with elements of dark-fantasy, adding to that mix some seriously ancient folklore. There's something fresh about this one. I really appreciated the way the story was revealed as Sebastian was going through his ordeal. The writer made me feel like I was right there in the basement with him. At once appealing to the historian/book lover side in me, while at the same time, making me cringe at the abuse. What I wouldn't give to visit this bookstore so richly described." -- Amazon reviewer

"This book is brilliantly written and the author has a true talent of painting a picture with his words....I was in the book with the characters and every sight, sound and smell was vivid and real to me." - Beverley Hollow, 5 star review

"... What a cool, engrossing story... The writer made me feel like I was right there in the basement with him"-Tania, 5 star review

Bookstore owner and novice antiquarian, Sebastian Kaine is proud of his new profession and even prouder still of the collection of antique books on the occult that he keeps locked away in the basement of his bookstore. But his little utopia implodes when he wakes up in that same basement, bound and bloodied, and his prized collection all but destroyed. Making matters worse are the two strange men responsible for the carnage. They want The Seals of Abgal and insist Sebastian has it.

Though he denies having any knowledge of the book, Sebastian soon finds himself at the receiving end of a violent interrogation--one, he fears, he may not survive. As he fights to stay alive, Sebastian will learn that The Seals of Abgal is no ordinary grimoire, and these men are no ordinary thugs.

Those that hunt the Seals are driven by a hate older than time itself.
