Bargain Kindle books! (Monday Aug 12)

When Girlfriends Make Choices, by Savannah Page. (Still 0.99?)

"This provocative tale is written in a witty style that makes the reader sit up and ponder the choices that they and their girlfriends have made in their lives. It's a realistic story that deals with a difficult and taboo situation, infidelity, that unfortunately does occur between men and women. I applaud author Savannah Page for weaving a tale from the "other woman's" viewpoint, Lara's angst and emotions over her forbidden love for Paul is palpable, and her struggle between making right and wrong life choices is one that anyone can relate to in some time in their life, even if it isn't in regard to an affair of the heart. And just like the first two books in the collection, Lara's close knit group of five girlfriends rally around her with support and tough love to help her make the right choice in her life. When Girlfriends Make Choices is an enjoyable and realistic story of love, friendship, emotions and life choices that is a must read for all women!" -- Amazon reviewer

A novel about forbidden love, the choices you make, and discovering what's important in life.

Lara Kearns has it all. She has her MBA, a successful career in advertising in Seattle, and she's even living with her best friend and single mom, Robin. Reliable, dedicated, and eager, Lara is the resident go-to-girl, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Lara's that girl who has everything going for her...everything, that is, except for true love. With the big 3-0 on its way and no man in sight, Lara wonders if she'll always be married to her career, or her cat, and never find the One.

But then, when she least expects it, a handsome and suave executive at her firm, Paul Mackenzie, makes a pass at her. Hesitant at first about striking up an office romance, Lara eventually finds herself falling for her charming colleague. And the best part? Paul is falling in love with Lara, too!

What happens, though, when the man of your dreams loves you...and his wife?

Battling with what the head and the heart want, Lara finds herself in a precarious situation. Life is spiraling out of control, but with the support of her therapist and friends, Lara must make a choice. Is she really prepared to chase after all costs?

This is a provocative story about struggling between right and wrong. About what you will or won't do for true love. About what happens when girlfriends make choices.

Phantom Lives - Collier (book one), by Elizabeth Loraine. (Still 0.99?)

"The world building was very unique and cleverly scripted, a world entirely of its own. A story that flows from beginning to end, we switch back and forth in some stages throughout, between both worlds. Filled with a cast of characters I'm sure you will enjoy twists and turns, and a fulfilling new world entirely of its own for the reader to enjoy!! It is delivered to us post-civil war, but this meshes well within the storyline giving us past, history and also a new beginning with Abbi being the missing link." -- Amazon reviewer

Another great series from top selling author Elizabeth Loraine. From the author of Royal Blood Chronicles comes her paranormal series Phantom Lives!!

Post-Human Series Volume-2 (Books 3-4), by David Simpson. (Still 0.99?)

"Simpson's second volume of his Post-Human series continues the excellent story from the first one. Any fan of sci-fi will enjoy this scary look at humanity's future. I couldn't give it a higher recommendation! Two thumbs up!" -- Amazon reviewer

August 11th and 12th ONLY, get the second half of the best-selling Post-Human Series collected in this special Volume 2 edition, regularly $5.49, for only 99 cents! Read each of the two books collected in this volume (Trans-Human and Human Plus) for less than two quarters each! That's less than the amount that falls out of your pocket when you nap on the couch! Not bad!
Age Range: 14 years and up

I collected the Post-Human Series into these volumes so that I could give readers a little more bang for their buck. Reading the books in these volumes is the cheapest way for new readers to access the series.

Post-Human was published in 2009, followed by Trans-Human in 2011. It caught fire in February of 2012 when the ebook revolution was at its height. The enthusiasm of readers catapulted me from being a part-time "weekend" writer to becoming a full-time author. It changed my life and I owe it all to reader support. I added two more books, Sub-Human in 2012 and Human Plus in 2013. These two volumes contain the four books in their entirety.

The Post-Human Series has been referred to as the "Human Series" by some reviewers and I can certainly understand why. At its heart, it is about the human condition in a future that will come. While no one can say exactly what form it will take, strong artificial intelligence, major breakthroughs in genetics, the emergence of nanotechnology, and our ability to eventually make ourselves immortal are all eventualities that, barring an extinction event, are on the horizon for this next century. Post-Human takes us on a tour of the pleasures and pains of what will be the most turbulent time in the history of our species. It will at once entertain you and make you think. What is to come indeed? Welcome to the Post-Human era.

Dead Housewives of New Orleans: A Humorous Mystery (#2, The Paige Tourneur Missing Husband Series), by G.T. Herren. (Still 0.99?)

"An excellent read with all the right ingredients - love affairs, devious ploys, scandalous secrets, and drama to the max! Greg Herren weaves a storyline that captivates the gossipy lush in us all and gives life to the phrase "dirty little secret." Set in one of the most mysterious cities in the US, this novel will certainly satisfy your craving for a big juicy helping of mystery with a side of skeletons in the closet. It pairs well with a glass of wine and a comfy chair. I've already got my eye on the next one in the series. I highly recommend this book!" -- Amazon reviewer

The SECOND delicious episode in the Paige Tourneur Missing Husband Series by Lambda-winner Greg (G.T.) Herren, author of the Chanse McLeod and Scotty Bradley series.

Snarky dialogue, a smart-mouthed female sleuth, and murder most malicious…

Someone’s killing the newly minted stars of Grandes Dames of New Orleans and reporter Paige Tourneur’s on the story. A great story too, except that someone’s gunning for Paige as well—someone tied to her extremely checkered past. Someone who knows way too much about her, and why she hasn't exactly come clean yet with Ryan the Perfect Man.

But despite the danger, Dead Housewives of New Orleans is one sassy, catty, wicked read! Author G.T. Herren has herein single-handedly invented the brand new genre of Bitch Noir, which makes snarky, delicious use of that old and beloved adage, “If you can’t say something nice, sit next to me.” Here’s a yummy preview:

“The formula was the same: women with money, too much time on their hands, and too much access to a plastic surgeon.”

“It was getting harder and harder to take fitness advice from a woman whose face was frozen by Botox and had her breasts done.”

“The original show had only one original cast member left—a narcissistic shrew with no indoor voice.”

“How could she squeeze those breasts into a Size 2?”

“She’s just a walking, talking human stain. What? I did call her human.”

Based on guilty-pleasure reality shows like Real Housewives of New York, New Jersey, Orange County, and Atlanta, Dead Housewives of New Orleans is part of a “season” itself, the second episode in Herren’s Missing Husband Series. It’s even more fun if you tune in early with the prequel, Fashion Victim.

And Fashion Victim has some pretty fancy fans…

A delicious, witty, deftly plotted mystery, Greg Herren’s Fashion Victim offers up a compulsively readable tale—Devil Wears Prada meets Agatha Christie.” –MEGAN ABBOTT, Edgar-winning author of Queenpin and Dare Me

“… a witty, engrossing slice of New Orleans life (and death)… delicious bits of gossip and hints of hushed-up scandal…wry observations about old money in the new New Orleans…a plot full of lively characters and satisfying twists.” –LIA MATERA, author of the Willa Jansson and Laura Di Palma series

"Witty, scandalous and dark-edged, Fashion Victim is a sparkling read." -LAUREN HENDERSON, author of the Tart Noir series
