The Kult (A Prosper Snow novel, Book 1), by Shaun Jeffrey. (Still 0.99?)

This thrill-ride from Shaun Jeffrey is soon to hit the big screen! Police officer Prosper Snow gets manipulated into a copycat killing, and now his life and the safety of his family is on the line. 99 cents!

"The Kult is a creeping stalk through a shadowy labyrinth of thrills and terror. Shaun Jeffrey delivers a pulse-pounding novel of superb skill and unequivocal horror." --Jon F. Merz author of PARALLAX and the Lawson Vampire novels.

"The tension in this story is beyond anything I've read before, really intense and edge-of-your seat reading with the plot seeming to turn with every page." -- Book Chick City

"This book is obviously not for the faint of heart, but for those who love a good mystery horror thriller, definitely partake in the horrific awesomeness that is The Kult." -- Smash Attack Reads


People are predictable. That's what makes them easy to kill.

Out of misguided loyalty, police officer Prosper Snow is goaded into helping his friends perform a copycat killing, but when the real killer comes after him, it's not only his life on the line, but his family's too. Now if he goes to his colleagues for help, he risks being arrested for murder. If he doesn't, he risks being killed.

"Shaun Jeffrey hits one out of the park with this creepy, character-driven thriller that starts with a jolt, stays in the fast lane, and plunges into the darkest territory of the human mind."
--Jonathan Maberry, author of PATIENT ZERO

"Part mystery, part police procedural, part horror story, it's one thrilling ride."
--Nate Kenyon, author of THE REACH and THE BONE FACTORY

Weirder Than Marshmallows Book of Essays, by Dan Fogg. (Still 0.99?)

Temporarily reduced to 99 cents, this book is a compendium of irreverent, witty observations about the everyday life around us.

"When I think of this book, I think of one word - irreverent. Dan Fogg uses his unique sense of humor to poke fun at the things that some ignore, and others are appauled by. He sees things as they are, in a tell-it-like-it-is approach, and he doesn't hold back! He points out the hilariousness of many situations, in which others might take offense. Dan Fogg lived his life to the fullest by seeing the humor in life's every day situations." -- Amazon reviewer

For the month of May the price of the book is reduced to .99! Enjoy!

"Late in the text, Dan Fogg writes, "I love the power of the written word." That this is the truth is not debatable. Clearly Mr. Fogg had a love of language, as evidenced by the quality of the writing in Weirder Than Marshmallows."

- Daniel Clark

"Weirder Than Marshmallows is a fun read. You know all those things we all think in our heads, but never say out loud' This book says them for us. Grab a copy, sit back and have a few laughs."

-Jim Kukral, Author of Attention! This Book Will Make You Money

A thoroughly enjoyable book, Weirder Than Marshmallows is a fun
collection of observations and stories that will make you laugh out
loud. Dan's reflections are heartfelt and relatable, reminding us to
use common sense when approaching life's challenges.

-Amy Ely

Ignorance, lack of common sense, and downright inhuman stupidity run rampant in this country and around the world. I watch people, and I hear stories, and they beg, beg, beg to be mocked and ridiculed.

Weirder Than Marshmallows showcases tales of stupidity and ignorance in the hopes of making people laugh. Stories are divided into five categories.

Do Not Stop on Tracks showcases warnings that should never have to be warned.

En Masse contains stories of mass ignorance.

Technology Sucks explores the hazards of the technological age.

That’s Just Freaky features Twilight Zone like tales of paranormality.

Weird Stuff is stuff that is… well, weird

All the stories in this book are true. That’s what makes the concept attention grabbing. Anybody can make up strange stories, writers do it all the time. That’s why people love Stephen King, his stories are downright weird.

But these are real, they actually happened, to relatively normal human beings. There’s no fiction here.

Thirty milligrams sodium, twenty-three grams carbohydrates, less than one gram protein. The marshmallow. Don’t look for it at your local health club. Don’t include it as part of a diet. And don’t eat more than a few at once, you’ll just end up with a stomachache.

The ingredients of a marshmallow are fairly simple. Corn syrup, sugar, dextrose, corn starch, water, gelatin, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, artificial and natural flavor, and blue 1. Most of those are self-explanatory. Corn syrup for flavor, sugar because that’s what the marshmallow is, corn starch for shelf-life, water to puff the thing out, gelatin to hold it together. Nobody knows what the compounds are for, and nobody really cares. Because, come on, why would you care what you’re putting in your mouth?

The ingredient I have a question about is the blue 1. Food coloring. Blue food coloring. Now maybe I’m wrong about this, but marshmallows are white, aren’t they? And white is achieved by a lack of color. So what color did those little puffs of sugar have to start out to require the addition of blue to neutralize it?

Anyway, I could rant about marshmallows forever. You may not agree, and you don’t have to; I think the things are weird. But this book isn’t about marshmallows, despite the ramblings above. This book is about stories. Stories that are, like marshmallows, strange, mind boggling, but somehow appealing to the public at large. Hard to explain, impossible to ignore.

How to write a novel in 90 days.(Extended)(A tried and tested system by a prolific author) (Soft Target Series), by Conrad Jones. (Still 3.24?)

Do you have a book inside you that's dying to get out? Author Conrad Jones, writer of twelve thrillers, gives a systematic plan for making that dream a reality.

"Having toyed with the idea of writing a book for a very long time (there is one in all of us apparently) but not knowing how to begin, I think this guide is an ideal way to get anyone off the starting blocks. I think that viewing the task of writing as a method that can be learned as for any other task is inspiring. It has certainly got me inspired again, hopefully competing with Conrad soon!" -- Amazon reviewer

The extended version HOW TO WRITE A FULL LENGTH NOVEL IN 90 DAYS......over 100 pages of a tried and tested system used by a successful thriller writer with 12 novels and a series of book marketing guides published since 2008!

NOW THE NUMBER 1 SELLING 'WRITING SKILLS' GUIDE ON KINDLE!

This concise guide tells you how to write a novel by using a systematic approach to writing.

This guide is written by an author not a 'guru'.

A simple step by step breakdown of how to plan each day.

No fillers and no theory, just the hard facts in a concise guide.


There are many guides about writing novels on the market but how many of them are written by prolific published authors? The answer is ‘not many’.

How can anyone write a guide unless they have been through the writing process many times before? The simple answer to this question is they can’t because they cannot feed on their own actual experiences to help another writer to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls.

Most guides regurgitate information which they have picked up from creative writing books or sites.

How can they give you advice when they have never sat down and focused on creating a novel which will sell, many times over?

Writing a novel is the same as any other task we undertake as individuals. We have to learn how to do it in order to do it well. When you first learn to drive, you need lessons. No one walks into the kitchen and creates a gourmet dish on their first attempt. If you want a system to apply to writing a book, then you need to take advice from an ‘author’ who has taken years to develop the process via experience.

Conrad Jones has been nominated for the;
Crime Dagger awards 2013
Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing awards (Harrogate festival) 2013

Time Split, by Patricia Smith. (Still 0.99?)

A World War II scientist unintentionally sets off a change of events that, decades later, results in an apocalypse of mass destruction as thermo-weapons become released around the world.

" I felt compelled to download this book and to be honest I am so glad I did. I found this book absorbing from start to finish. The plot, the characters, the storyline, everything about this book made me not want to put it down." -- Amazon reviewer

Review: "A great read that was packed full of suspense and action. One of the best time travel books I've read in awhile."

A scientist's ‘harmless’ tinkering, just before World War II, causes a catastrophic change of events which lead to World War III in the present.

40 minutes into the war most of North America, Asia and Europe were destroyed. A cycle of annihilation, which once started became impossible to stop.

The launch of missiles, detected by satellites, set the wheels in motion for the retaliatory strikes to begin.

No nation escaped the cascade that followed; even those neutral in the war.

Detonation was the only warning for most that things had escalated beyond reason as the use of thermo-weapons had never been discussed. A huge electromagnetic pulse, which fried all electrical equipment inside the strike zone, shut down power grids and plunged the region into darkness. A microsecond later there followed a flash of intense white light, which filled the sky, as a small sun erupted within the city.

As the glare burned the corneas from their eyes, it simultaneously cauterised their optic nerves, but the blindness and pain only distressed for a nanosecond. Superheated air, expanding at a rate of 400 metres per second, dwarfed all previous torment. Skin was seared and lungs disintegrated as a last agonised breath choked in the furnace.

On the fringes of the inferno, fires erupted in every direction whilst in the centre, where temperatures reached millions of degrees centigrade, everything was vaporised in a millisecond. The scorching, dust-filled air tore upward in a fiery plume, looking, to all at a distance safe enough to witness the madness, as though hell had broken loose. Seconds later it hit the stratosphere where, cooling, it began to fan outwards, forming the terrifying calling card of man’s most destructive weapon.

There was no hope on January 28th. The mercy for most was death came swiftly.

On a worldwide scale, billions died immediately following the initial strikes, and in the weeks after, millions more from radiation and starvation.

None of this had to happen; none of this should have happened; and it wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the good intentions of one man.

Time Split can also be read on your PC. For free Kindle software for your PC click on the link ‘Available on your PC’ found beneath the buttons ‘Buy now with 1-Click’ or ‘Send sample now’.
