Callis Rose, by Mark Tufo. (Still free?)

Over seventy 5-star reviews, and free today! Callis, a girl bestowed with a mysterious power, is in jeopardy from Mindy, her nemesis in high school, while finding love blooming with Mindy's brother.

"I am a huge Tufo fan and this book is so different from anything else he's done. It could be considered similar to Stephen King's book, Carrie. However, it is a very different story. Wonderful character devolpement and a story that keeps building and keeps you engrossed until the last word. No one is safe from the anger of Callis Rose! If you're not a Tufo fan, you will be!" -- Amazon reviewer

Medicinal Remedies, by Kathy Pratt. (Still 0.99?)

In this medical thriller, Kristy Petersen is a critical care nurse who turns to mercy-killing, with devastating results.

"Easy read and couldn't put it down once I started it! Writer's personal experience definitely contributed to the realistic story line. You will enjoy this one!" -- Amazon reviewer

Kristy Petersen’s transition from compassionate nurse to mercy killer is insidious in MEDICINAL REMEDIES, a medical thriller. Kristy Petersen is one burned-out critical care nurse. What finally pushes her over the top isn’t one individual thing, but a compilation of family, romantic and work stressors. Add to the mix her growing concerns for the habits of modern medicine in keeping alive elderly people and others with terminal illnesses. Kristy believes we are kinder to our animals than we are to other humans. When a patient dies accidentally through omitting medication needed to keep her alive, Kristy finds herself feeling powerful. She convinces herself she’s doing a good thing by allowing her patients to die. The step to mercy killer is inevitable. Being caught, convicted, and sentenced to prison does nothing to rehabilitate her. After serving a small portion of her sentence, she is paroled. But just before leaving, she commits an act that will possibly result in the future death of an inmate she’s drawn lab work on. However, she takes great pains to assure that she won’t be caught this time.

191 pages, with a 3.8-star rating from 15 reviews.

Never Smile at Strangers (Grand Trespass Series, #1), by Jennifer Minar-Jaynes. (Still 0.99?)

Act today on this 99-cent sale for a much-loved and highly-praised thriller.

"Fans of mystery novels and tension-filled psychological thrillers will genuinely enjoy reading "Never Smile at Strangers." Minar-Jaynes has combined everything I loved about the old "Fear Street" novels with everything truly scary that keeps me awake at night now. There is something chilling about the darker side of humanity, and Minar-Jaynes does an excellent job of reminding the reader of exactly why parents tell their children not to talk to strangers. The characters' fear is honest, and their pain and confusion can be felt in the writing. Furthermore, she has tapped into what makes "mystery" novels so compelling when they're done right- the suspense in this book is incredible, and the ending was like the explosive final scene of a movie that no one can stop talking about." -- Amazon reviewer


Please note that "Ugly Young Thing," the second book in the GRAND TRESPASS SERIES, will be released July 2013. If you would like to be notified once it launches, please go to and hit "Like" or email Jennifer at

WHEN TEENAGE GIRLS VANISH in what was once considered a safe Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you ever truly know those closest to you?

When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend HALEY LANDRY's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister BECKY has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15-year- old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

Meanwhile, ERICA DUVALL, a reclusive 19-year-old aspiring writer, befriends Haley. Ten years earlier, Erica's mother abandoned her, leaving her with the womanizing used car salesman father she loathes. She's decided to write a novel based on Tiffany's disappearance; a novel that she hopes will lead to a reunion with her estranged novelist mother.

RACHEL ANDERSON, a 36-year-old mother of two, is having trouble coming to terms with her husband's affair with the missing girl--a relationship that supposedly ended shortly before Tiffany's disappearance. What's more, she comes to the realization that someone is watching her family through the large back windows of her house.

A DISTURBED MAN also lives in the area. Ever since his mother's murder four years earlier, he's been raising his insolent teenage sister, ALLIE, who sleeps with truck drivers for money. He considers women to be dangerous--and his world revolves around his fear and hatred for them. He's terrified of his sister, knowing she's intent on pushing him over the edge.

332 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 551 reviews.

The Tree Of Jesse (A Thriller) (Messianic Age Trilogy), by J.R. Mattison. (Still 2.99?)

On a lonely strip of Death Valley a failing musician awakens to an intriguing new life; one filled with ancient languages, a hidden identity and the woman who holds the key to unlocking his destiny...his connection to the lost pages of the Dead Sea Scrolls. But there are those who want to keep the secrets buried, and will stop at nothing to keep the prophecy from unfolding...

"A tapestry of mystery, mysticism, and rock-and-roll. I have to say I don't often find many books that I can't put down because I just need to know what happens next, but this is one of those books. It's almost like a Dan Brown book (though much better!!) where you're part of this puzzle unfolding and you just need to keep unravelling it all. Fantastic. But the thing I love most about it is how J.R.Mattison seems to merge mysticism with music, and rock and roll. It made me want to pick up my old Richard Bach book 'Illusions' and stick some Tom Waits on. Just loved it." -- Amazon reviewer

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

Free today, this book outlines the life of the man who more than anyone was responsible for instilling Christianity throughout the world.

"Wyatt North puts St Paul within a comfortable timeframe including insightful contemporary commentary. Get this fine book to gain inspiration." -- Amazon reviewer

There are a great many men and women who have forever influenced and changed the course of Christian history, but one might ask whether any have made such a profound impact as Saint Paul the Apostle.

It is through the ardent work of Paul that we know the path to Salvation, one which leads us and binds us to God through the love of Christ.

When Jesus revealed himself directly to Paul and called Paul into his service that set Paul apart from other disciples who had come into the faith since the crucifixion.

Paul was not merely chosen to be a disciple, he had been appointed by Jesus himself.

70 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 65 reviews.
