Rise of the Billionaire (Book 5) (Legacy Collection), by Ruth Cardello. (Still 2.99?)

From the "Legacy" collection, this billionaire romance comes highly-rated. 89 of its 97 reviews are five-star!

"Ruth Cardello has once again given her fans a book with a hero to love. Jeremy is the most adorable, decent, and honest-to-a-fault computer geek--oh... and did I mention sexy? As he works to improve himself for Alethea's notice, he figures out he has the wrong goal in mind and needs to prove himself to Jeisa. Through this challenge, we get a marvelously fun ride, laughing all the way. Jeisa is just the perfect blend of sassiness, charm, and uncertainty--you will love her project to help make the world be better. We get to visit old friends from the previous books and see how they are doing. Conversations with Dominic, Jake, and Jeremy can bring tears of laughter to your eyes. As an extra bonus, we get to spend Thanksgiving with the Andrades in all their family hilarity. And, Lil is back acting like the Lil we all love. Keeping the whole gang sane, Marie Duhamel continues as the maternal force behind `her boys.' The entire Legacy series is a must read in my book, but this one "rises" to the top in humor and adventure. A five star rating all the way!" -- Amazon reviewer

Rise of the Billionaire (Book 5 of the Legacy Collection)

Dreaming of Alethea gave Jeremy Kater the strength to survive a difficult childhood. Now that he has influential friends who owe him some big favors, he’s determined to become the kind of man Alethea would be interested in: rich and dangerous.

How can she help him change once she’s realized she’s fallen in love with the man he’s always been?

Hint: Sleeping with him doesn't help.

Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

The Shekinah Legacy (A Charlotte Ansari Thriller), by Gary Lindberg. (Still free?)

An alternative religious history, this riveting book is compared favorably to Brown's The Da Vinci Code by its many ardent readers. Free today!

"There are no doubt many interesting historical facts embedded in the novel, which I'm sure will be of interest to other readers. For me, the only important thing is that the background is reasonably credible and doesn't entirely contravene history as I know it. This book easily meets and exceeds that criterion. There is a lot of death and gore, but there are many "sides" in this complex thriller and most of them consider the treasure hunt at the heart of this story a matter of life and death, so it makes sense that there is as much of one as the other in the story. I admit that I dreaded getting to the end of The Shekinah Legacy, because I couldn't foresee a good way to get out of the messy religious Gordian's knot without something unsatisfying, unbelievable, or beyond my capacity to swallow. But I loved the way that part of the story was wrapped up and congratulate the author on the ending's sensitivity and beauty. The writing is strong, the characters are deep and engaging, the story is gripping, and the pace is driving. It's well worth a read." -- Amazon reviewer

★★★★★ To define the genre of this book, think of Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code. To determine whether you will be entertained by it, think better than Dan Brown's thriller. This is the book that Mr. Brown should have written. It is as an exciting alternative religious history filled with plenty of action and interesting plot twists. It is based on real research, at least as real as Mr. Brown's, after all the discussion about how authentic his sources were. ... I recommend this book to all who like a good thriller. I can't imagine what Mr. Lindberg will do for an encore. - S. Moore for BookPleasures.com

★★★★★ "The Shekinah Legacy" is a riveting read that should prove hard to put down for fans of "Da Vinci Code"-inspired thrillers. Recommended. - Midwest Book Review

★★★★★ The Shekinah Legacy" is a well-written thriller in the style of Dan Brown where long-held religious beliefs are turned upside down and challenged. The story is filled with the twists and turns that make a novel great. The story's ending is meant to be a shocker and it is, concluding a very well crafted story. - Alice D. for ReadersFavorite.com


SYNOPSIS
In this controversial Amazon best-selling thriller, international cable TV journalist Charlotte Ansari and her Asperger's son are caught literally in the crossfire of history when terrorists, the CIA, Mossad and the Vatican all converge in a pulse-pounding search for relics that could forever change the balance of power in the world.

Three decades ago, Charlotte's mother suddenly vanished with no trace. The mystery was never solved. Then suddenly, on the same day that Charlotte's home is attacked by terrorists, her son receives an email from the grandmother that he has never known. The coded message catapults Charlotte and her son on a dangerous mission to India and Kashmir to find the only objects that can save the old woman's life. Unfortunately, Charlotte and her autistic son don't know what they are looking for.

The Shekinah Legacy is a thriller in the tradition of Dan Brown, Steve Berry and James Rollins. In this provocative novel, author Gary Lindberg uses the form of the thriller to explore the limits and perils of belief.

The Tour, by Jean Grainger. (Still 2.99?)

This absorbing story is full of rich characters and delightful humor. Ranked #2 on Amazon's Travel/Europe/Ireland category, this intelligent read is utterly unmissable for readers who enjoy a well-written character-based story.

"A book for the intelligent reader. Impressed with the the authors ability to combine Irish History with a great story full of interesting and intriguing characters. I found myself totally switching off to the outside world while reading it which is the sign of a great book. Very well written with a great storyline." -- Amazon reviewer

Every week Conor O'Shea collects a new group of American visitors from Shannon Airport from where they embark on a high end tour of the 'Real Ireland.' But this particular tour, with its cast of unintentionally hilarious characters, presents seasoned tour guide Conor with dilemmas that render him speechless for the first time in his life.

Among this eclectic group are Corlene, a gold-digging multiple divorcée on the prowl; Patrick, a love-starved Boston cop; Dylan, a goth uilleann piper; Dorothy, a poisonous college professor who wouldn't spend Christmas; Elliot, a wall street shark who finally shows his true colours; and then there's Ellen, back on Irish soil after so many years, to discover a truth nobody could have guessed, least of all herself. And that's just a few of the colourful cast.
 

The locals they meet on their journey, eccentric West Brits, passionate musicians, Ukrainian waitresses and Garda high flyers all help to make this a tour no-one will ever forget.
 

And of course there's Conor O'Shea in the thick of it all, solving problems and mending hearts, but what about his own?'

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?)

From prolific author Conrad Jones comes this systematic approach to creating a full-length novel. Jones has authored fifteen books including thrillers, horror, and marketing guides.

"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
