Bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Apr 25)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

Apart From Love, by Uvi Poznansky. (Still 0.99?)

This twisting narrative is more than just a romance, it's a complex view into a family's personal battles. This highly rated novel is only $0.99!

"Liberally salted with buttery smooth prose and fascinating insights as to the mindset of a dysfunctional family, Uvi Pozansky's Apart From Love chronicles Ben, Anita and Lenny's struggle with their desires, hopes and dreams as they clash with decency, moral values, and tragic secrets unveiled." -- Amazon reviewer

Written with passionate conviction, this story is being told by two of its characters: Ben, a twenty-seven years old student, and Anita, a plain-spoken, spunky, uneducated redhead, freshly married to Lenny, his aging father. Behind his back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him.
Meanwhile, Lenny is trying to keep a secret from both of them: his ex-wife, Ben’s mother, a talented pianist, has been stricken with an early-onset alzheimer. Taking care of her gradually weighs him down.
What emerges in these characters is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.

The title Apart From Love comes from a phrase used three times in the story:

After a while I whispered, like, “Just say something to me. Anything.” And I thought, Any other word apart from Love, ‘cause that word is diluted, and no one knows what it really means, anyway.
Anita to Lenny, in Apart From Love

Why, why can’t you say nothing? Say any word—but that one, ‘cause you don’t really mean it. Nobody does. Say anything, apart from Love.
Anita to Ben, in The Entertainer

For my own sake I should have been much more careful. Now—even in her absence—I find myself in her hands, which feels strange to me. I am surrounded—and at the same time, isolated. I am alone. I am apart from Love.
Ben, in Nothing Surrendered

Blood, Smoke and Ashes, by Bradley Convissar. (Still 0.99?)

A paranormal spin on a murder mystery keeps Jane the Ripper killing - even after her own death. Pick it up for only $0.99!

"This is his first novel and I've been waiting months to read it. I was not disappointed! It's about serial killers, the paranormal/occult. It's a thriller. It's exciting. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does." -- Amazon reviewer

This is the second edition of the book, and the errors noted in several of the reviews have been corrected.

In the Fall of 1955, the state of Nevada used the electric chair to execute a prisoner for the first time.
It was also the last time.

Molly Blackburn, nicknamed Jane the Ripper by the Las Vegas press after killing eleven men while posing as a prostitute, was strapped to the chair without incident. The switch was flipped.

Everything after that went horribly wrong.

Since that day, a copycat Jane the Ripper has appeared almost every decade in a different city, mimicking Molly's choice in victims as well as her methods of murder. She kills eleven men then disappears, never to be found. The similarities between the bodies left behind each decade is uncanny. As if they are all the victims of the same murderer, not a copycat.

But that's impossible, of course, because Molly Blackburn is dead, her execution witnessed by a dozen people.

FBI Agent Jack Shaw, the lead investigator in the Jane the Ripper cases since the seventies, finally catches a break in 2009 when the intended fifth victim manages to turn the tables on the newest copycat . Everyone believes that the horror has finally ended with her capture. Shaw is not so sure, though, wondering if someone else will take up the mantle and kill seven more men to complete the cycle. But when no more bodies with her distinctive markings show up over the next two years, Shaw allows himself to believe that maybe he has seen the end of the Jane the Ripper murders.

As it turns out, what he thought was the end was only the beginning.

His hunt will take him across the country, and even when he thinks he's finally discovered the truth, he quickly learns that not everything is as it seems.

That not every monster is created equal.

That the nature of good and evil is not as black and white as he has always believed.

That not everything that is broken can be put back together.

That not every fractured soul can be saved.

When blood, smoke and ashes rise, no one comes out the same on the other side.

Blood, Smoke and Ashes is a 115,00 word supernatural thriller that also contains the first half of my crime/thriller novella "I Never"

355 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 26 reviews.

Night of the Purple Moon (The Toucan Trilogy (Young Adult Dystopian)), by Scott Cramer. (Still 0.99?)

"Cramer creates a picture of our world that's both frightening and inspiring in this heartfelt story that both young adults and adults can enjoy.A heartwarming but not overly sentimental story of survival." -- Amazon reviewer

Abby awakens to banging on the door, sees a truck crashed, and finds her baby sister crying out for breakfast. She soon discovers why Dad hasn't fed her.

Astronomers predicted that Earth would pass through a comet's tail, turning the moon purple. But nobody predicted that bacteria from the comet would attack the hormones responsible for puberty. Adults died within hours.

Abby struggles to care for her siblings while quarantined scientists race to find a cure. The time bomb of puberty ticks louder the older Abby gets.

Compelling science fiction, a young adult dystopian with heart.

Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

The Life and Prayers of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, by Wyatt North. (Still free?)

#1 in religious biographies, here's a look at the life of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Get it free today!

"This book is one you will read and reread often. It shows that not all saints started out that way. It shows just how humanity of Saint Ignatius. It shows that with discipline, we too can become very close to God. Loved every page! A must read! " -- Amazon reviewer

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Ignatius of Loyola is an essential for any Christian.

From a life of self-indulgent vanity, the calling of God transformed the life of Inigo Lopez de Loyola beyond imagination. From the time of conversion, St Ignatius, Father of the Jesuits, sought only the will and glory of God.

Today his spirituality continues to influence both Christians and non-Christians around the world, the legacy of a humble man who epitomized the motto of his order throughout his life.

This holy, self-aggrandizing man turned his back on the self-indulgences of courtly life, seeking only God’s approval and taking his word out onto the streets and to the sick and the poor. His ministry was his life and if all of life’s activities represent the opportunity for prayer, as Ignatius fervently believed, then no life epitomized this more than that of Ignatius of Loyola.

Following in the steps of Saint Ignatius, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina was elected Pope Francis I on March 13, 2013 and is the first Jesuit pope.
