Free and bargain Kindle book! (Thursday Apr 4)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

Some Are Sicker Than Others, by Andrew Seaward. (Still on sale?)

This best selling thriller delves into the dark side of substance abuse. This author has really lived it and creates gripping characters and authentic story lines.

" THIS BOOK NAILS IT...down to the gritty core. Not only are the characters rich and compelling, they are honest, truthful, and written from a place of utter compassion. The author has done something that not many writers before him were able to do. He has presented the topic of addiction & recovery as it truly is; maddening, ambivalent and utterly relentless." -Alexander Ruzumican

"Seaward not only weaves an exceptionally well-constructed story with wholly credible characters, he offers deeper insights and relates more factual information about the disease of addiction than any other writer to date." -Grady Harp, Top 10 Amazon Reviewer

"Monty Miller's journey reminds us of the difficult road of acceptance, forgiveness and redemption that we all must take at some point in our lives."-Cyrus Webb, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

"This is a very dark, harsh, unmerciful look at addiction with unrelenting exposure of its consequences." -Dr. Patricia Laster, Psychologist and Author of "Breaking Free"

ADDICTION: CUNNING, BAFFLING, & POWERFUL

In this gripping debut novel by Andrew Seaward, the lives of three addicts converge following an accidental and horrific death.

Monty Miller, a self-destructive, codependent alcoholic, is wracked by an obsession to drink himself to death as punishment for a fatal car accident he didn't cause. 

Dave Bell, a former all-American track star turned washed-up high school volleyball coach, routinely chauffeurs his bus full of teens on a belly full of liquor and head full of crack.

Angie Mallard, a recently divorced housewife with three estranged children, will go to any lengths to restore the family she lost to crystal meth.

All three are court-mandated to a secluded drug rehab high in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. There, they learn the universal truth among alcoholics and addicts:

Though they may all be sick...SOME ARE SICKER THAN OTHERS

Based on the author's own personal experience with substance abuse and twelve-step programs, Some Are Sicker Than Others, transcends the clich├ęs of the typical recovery story by exploring the insidiousness of addiction and the harrowing effect it has on not just the afflicted, but everyone it touches.

With the harsh realism of Brett Easton Ellis and the dark, confrontational humor of Chuck Palahniuk, Mr. Seaward takes the reader deep inside the psyche of the addict and portrays, in very explicit details, the psychological and physiological effects of withdrawal and the various stages of recovery.

As Top 10 Amazon Reviewer, Grady Harp, put it: "What sets Andrew's novel apart from other recovery stories is his deep understanding of the physiochemical aspects of substance abuse and addiction. Seaward not only understands the socioeconomic, psychological and, yes, criminal impact these people create, he also displays such a profound understanding of the physiological/medical aspects of addiction that we are left to wonder if he hasn't been down the path of his characters himself."

390 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 80 reviews.

A Guide to Abraham Lincoln, by Higher Read. (Still on sale?)

Want to learn a little bit more about Abraham Lincoln? Want it to be fun? Here's a well laid out biography that's on sale today!

"This book was a great read. It really brings Lincoln and his actions/beliefs to the forefront and gives you a completely different viewpoint than what was in history books. I wish I had had this when I was in school - it would have given history much more meaning. I will pass it on to my grandchildren to read when they start studying him in school." -- Amazon reviewer

Abraham Lincoln is everywhere: on the five-dollar bill in your pocket, in commercials for car dealerships, on street signs, in libraries, in unlikely Hollywood movies (think of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure). A statue of Lincoln is never too hard to come across in most major American cities.

The image of the tall, stark man with the big stove top hat comes easily, even if you know little else about him. You may know that he issued the Gettysburg Address or the Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War, even if you aren’t 100 percent clear on the particulars of those documents.

If you’re reading A Guide to Abraham Lincoln, it’s because you want to know more about the man than the caricature portrayed alongside Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. Perhaps you want to save yourself any embarrassment the next time he comes up in conversation with friends, family, or colleagues. With this book you’re on your way to gaining a practical understanding of Abraham Lincoln, his family and background, early life, and the country he inherited as president.

A Guide to Abraham Lincoln is designed to give you a quick, solid understanding of everything you need to know about the story behind the 16th president of the United States of America. Use it to fill in the gaps in what you know about Abraham Lincoln, or use it as a springboard for learning more about something that interests you. The wonder of history is that you can go as deep as you like; there is always more to discover.

As Ticca and Lebuin attempt to survive, they learn that they may hold the key to powers capable of destroying all the realms. Together they are far more powerful than they or anyone else ever imagined.

Can a new Dagger and Journeyman mage manage to stay alive long enough to figure out what powers they control? Who can they trust as both are targeted for assassination and relentlessly hunted?

"This is a very good spy story that twists and turns all throughout the story. Without giving everything away, I really recommend this for those who love a good adventure along with a mystery. " -- Amazon reviewer

Gerald Hammond is the exception to the rule; an honourable spy, whose lofty principles have brought him nothing but loneliness and isolation. Catherine Schmidt is the stunning young daughter of an assassinated spymaster, whose murderous quest for vengeance has left her at the mercy of the infamous Head of Soviet State Security.
On a covert operation, in Soviet-occupied Germany, Hammond has no knowledge of the unseen forces that sponsor and oppose his mission. He only knows that he must somehow save her to save himself, but, as ever-more disturbing revelations come to light, begins to wonder which poses the greater threat; the enemy he runs from, or the friend he runs to?
Set against a factual background of government conspiracy, and one of the most audacious espionage coups in history, the Folks at Fifty-Eight is a beautifully-paced tale of seduction, betrayal, blackmail, and murder that blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction.
