Hoofing It (Robert Knight series), by Ian M Pindar. (Still 1.99?)

"Hoofing It" is about a European road trip and is written by authentic UK writer, Ian Pindar. Follow the adventures of Robert on his post high school road trip. Touching, adventurous, and definitely funny - download it for only $2.99!

"Fantastic! Hedonistic European road movie with humour. Think Karouac and Irvine Welsh, meet Brett Easton Ellis, with Sue Townsend writing the script. The characterisation was totally believable, and at times I felt I was along for the ride. A lot of the big issues are addressed or touched upon, and the culmination of the novel is well crafted, you don't feel cheated as it is written in the first person." -- Amazon reviewer

In 1996, just before university, Robert and his best friend Spud hedonistically set off around Europe in their neighbour’s stolen car, with the 28,000 pounds they have `acquired,’ forged documents, no insurance and class A’s under the bonnet.
On the way to the ferry in Hull, they save the life of a young suicidal woman, Naomi, who is about to jump off the Humber Bridge. All her immediate family have tragically died in a car crash one year previous. Robert is adamant he can help rehabilitate her; but Steven wants nothing of this `Captain Freedom’ talk.
Along the way they meet a beautiful smack-head – dance like the rest of the world is watching – reach a higher state of consciousness - have gratuitous sex – perpetrate sweet criminal acts – meet madness and genius – open the door to hell – have perfect moments – cry in the Vatican – have scary liaisons – get mortally challenged – blow things up and see hope boil away. Robert is not looking for love, moral enlightenment or a sense of being, but he gets them anyway… well… What more could you want from a book'
Hoofing It is the debut novel by Ian M Pindar, it is a rite of passage/coming of age story and the first in a series; the second being Hoofed (set around the millennium) will be out soon. As the main character Robert Knight travels through life, we will travel with him – hop on board!

The Apprentice of Fyordorn, by Colin Hawkes. (Still 2.99?)

The events of Erith are being manipulated by the Grand Masters of Sarros and Altim. An apprentice magician comes along with a new way of magic. This fast-paced science fantasy adventure is $2.99 today!

"This book is the start of a great series. I loved the characters and the feel of everything. I can't wait to get more!" -- Amazon reviewer

In a fast moving science fantasy adventure the Grand Masters of Sarros and Altim deploy their magicians and pit their wits and armies against each other as they manipulate events on the world of Erith. Plot and counter plot are interwoven where friends and enemies are found in the most unexpected places. But it is an unsuspecting apprentice magician at the court of Fyordorn with a somewhat unconventional approach to magic who is pivotal to the final outcome.
Since publication, The Apprentice of Fyordorn has been followed by a sequel, The Grain of Truth and a prequel, The Voids of Discovery.

"It was a tired and exhausted Master of Sarros who finally left the comfort of his chair and walked wearily to the collection of spheres hovering at the far end of the room. They graphically showed the status of his war with Altim. Grimly he was reminded that more were flame red and under Altim’s control than blue and under his protection. How could a tiny speck of sand be the cause of so much bloodshed' But then ‘the grain of truth’ protected by layers of differing magic was said to contain the knowledge of all the known worlds. It was that knowledge that the Grand Master of Altim had vowed to discover at any cost. And it was on the blue sphere representing the world of Erith that the magic that would unlock its secrets might be found.
Shaking his head he made his way to a low table and studied a chequered board on which a number of figurines were displayed. Slowly his hand moved to that of a raven. He held it for a while and then gently placed it on a square already occupied by his eagle. The small blue sphere at the far end of the room shone with a raven’s image. His decisive move had been made. Later that evening seated again in his chair he watched it glow once more. The image of a hawk appeared. The Grand Master of Altim had made his counter move and a Guardian had been put in place."

The Madams of Mischief (Doom Divas), by Sherry Siska. (Still 0.99?)

Marty Sheffield just wants to live her own quiet life - but when she's left at the altar and then finds a dead body, her life is anything but that! She sets out to solve the murder in this light, funny murder mystery! Get it for only 99 cents!

"Like a vacation . . . with murder. This book is so fun and so descriptive of the location and characters that I can hardly put it down. It is like taking a vacation without leaving the couch. This is a fast, light and very fun read. " -- Amazon reviewer

"I practically skipped over toward the green ninety gallon trash tote. I lifted the hinged lid of the trash can, swung it open, and tossed in the diaper. That's when Destiny not only called my name, she also spit in my face, thumbed her nose, and blew me a big old raspberry. Lucky me."

Those crazy Madams of Mischief, Destiny, Lady Luck, and Fate seem to be out to get Marty Sheffield! Marty just wants to live her quiet life in her quiet town while recovering from being left at the altar by up-and-coming country music star, Ricky Ray Riley. The Doom Divas seem to have other ideas, though. While babysitting her sister's kids, Marty finds the body of a former classmate wedged in a ninety-gallon trash container at a local park. With the help of her sister, Marty sets out to solve the mystery and save her own hide before it's too late.

Also available in the Doom Divas series of humorous mystery novels for Kindle and in paperback: The Divas of Doom (Doom Divas Book 2) and The Floozies of Fate (Doom Divas Book 3)

Antelope Canyon (Take a Walk With Me - The Southwest Gallery), by Deborah Carney. (Still 2.99?)

This book is perfect for the Kindle Fire series and features breathtaking pictures of Arizona's Antelope Canyon. Filled with photos and few quotes, this book will give you a photographic trip through the canyon!

"The photos in this book are truly beautiful, and nature, as seen in this walk through Antelope Canyon, is amazing. My favorite images are of sand like a sunshine waterfall slipping over stones, golden swirls of sun-kissed rock, an image like a face standing out from the rock, nature's splotlight, sand-painted curves against a shining sky, and more. At first glance, maybe it's all just rock. At second glance it's nature's magical sculptures waiting to be discovered." -- Amazon reviewer

Antelope Canyon is one of Arizona most prized slot canyons. Only a half mile long but filled with color, texture, and patterns to delight the visitor. It is not open to the public for exploring, you have to go with a Native American guide that will point out the "favorite" places to take photos but will also allow you time to capture the beauty on your own.

This isn't a "how-to" book, it is a "take a walk with me" and enjoy the beauty that exists in this photographic historical treasure.
