Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

Beacon (Part I) (Beacon Saga 1), by Jonathan C. Gillespie. (Still free?)

"This book is fantastic. It holds you on every page. It is short but very complete. I will be buying the rest of the saga. The good thing is this one can stand alone too. I highly recommend it." -- Amazon reviewer

At the end of time, a miracle endangers a vast refugee fleet. Part I of the Beacon Saga.

They call it the Shroud, and Beacon is the only star that survived its wrath. At this endpoint of existence, humanity lingers on alongside every living species. Layers of orbiting ships can provide you everything—except children. So when Mally and Tersias conceive, they are instant celebrities, lavished with accolades and gifts. But their act will carry a high cost, starting with the return of a specter from the past. And the end will become the beginning.

A serial installment of six thousand words. Parts II (twelve thousand words), III (fourteen thousand words), and IV (sixteen thousand words) also available. Part V coming soon.

26 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 6 reviews.

After The Ending (The Ending Series 1), by Lindsey Fairleigh. (Still 0.99?)

"Although post-apocalyptic novels are a dime a dozen lately...I haven't read anything else that has such relatable characters or that so vividly captures the terror of watching the world around you fall apart." -Doing Dewey

"The action is intense and the creativity of the authors is fresh...The world building was truly believable and well done!" -Tome Tender

"This is an incredibly dramatic, intricate, complicated, enthralling book. I couldn't put it down." -Cat's Thoughts

"After the Ending is exactly the fusing of romance and dystopia that I have been waiting for." -Writing the Deelio

ON SALE! Only $.99 until Sunday, September 8.
The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series, The Ending.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, "they" thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family...they're all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them--with the rest of the world--but I didn't. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I'd ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O'Connor, I'm twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We've all had to start over. I've been stripped of my home, my dreams...all that is me. I'm someone else now--broken and changed. Other survivors' memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won't let them consume me. I can't. My name is Zoe Cartwright, I'm twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

We've been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing--we'll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we're strong...we're survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

This book contains some adult content and language.

Fortress of Ephemera: A Gothic Thriller, by Eric Christopherson. (Still 2.99?)

"A Little Horror, A Little Suspense, A LIttle Creepy, A Lot of Fun! This book is beautifully written - even more than the story itself, the book was a delight to read. It was easy to step back in time to the post-Great War era. Langley is a memorable character who is both lovable and despicable in his own way. Miss Buxton is something of an enigma until almost the very end - another character to be admired and despised. The plot was well thought-out and the ending had a twist that was totally unexpected. The author has done a remarkable job bringing the era to the reader's eyes and for this alone, I give this a full five stars. It's a fun book to read and one that will stay with you after it's finished." -- Amazon reviewer

The year is 1919 and the place New York City. A one-armed WWI veteran spends the night inside the mansion of a wealthy hoarder and lives to tell about it--from a room in Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric ward.

Miles Trenowyth returns from the War to End All Wars a changed man, but soon resumes his career as a civil attorney. One of his clients, Noah Langley, is under threat of eviction from his boarded-up and booby-trapped four-story Harlem mansion stuffed to the ceilings with untold tons of bizarre "collections" that the hoarder has acquired over a lifetime.

Miles finds himself trapped inside the mansion, along with Noah and Miss Cora Buxton, a comely social worker intent on ministering to the hoarder, and over the course of one night, he confronts a brand of terror worse than anything faced on the battlefields of Europe . . .

"With stunning attention to historical detail, and characters that practically jump off the page, Christopherson delivers a blood-soaked thriller you won't soon forget." -- Jude Hardin, author of KEY DEATH

"Christopherson has penned a deliciously wicked tribute to the glory days of Gothic horror." -- Mark Carver, author of THE AGE OF APOLLYON

FORTRESS OF EPHEMERA is a new thriller from the author of CRACK-UP and THE PROPHET MOTIVE.

The Sowing, by K. Makansi. (Still 3.99?)

"THE SOWING rocks--and it rocked me from the opening pages, a heart-thumping, disturbing sequence which ensnared me but had me wondering if the journey to follow would meet these immediately audacious expectations. As a writer I can say that the voice, tense and POV employed in THE SOWING are not easy to pull off--but Makansi does so masterfully, imbuing the story with even more bite. I cannot wait for the journey to continue, as THE SOWING has evoked in me what only really good reads can: a desire to go read, and to go write!" -- Amazon reviewer

The Famine may be over, but the Resistance has just begun.

When Remy Alexander is fifteen, her older sister is murdered in a cold-blooded classroom massacre. When the Okarian Sector hides the truth behind the attack, Remy's family goes underground to join the clandestine and growing Resistance movement. Now, three years later, Remy is beginning to find clues about why her sister was murdered. But at the same time, Valerian Orlean, the boy Remy once loved, is put in charge of hunting and destroying the Resistance. As Vale fights to protect his people and Remy seeks justice for her sister, the two are set on a collision course that could bring everyone together - or tear everything apart.

THE SOWING, the first book in The SEEDS Trilogy, is set in a post-apocalyptic world. In the wake of environmental destruction and a devastating population crash, the Okarian Sector was forced to fight to establish a civil society in a chaotic world. After the loss of seed biodiversity in the destruction of the Old World, genetic modification and artificial agricultural techniques are the Sector’s only choice. Science reigns supreme. The Okarian Agricultural Consortium, a corporation dedicated to perfecting these modified seeds and providing only the best food and medicine to its citizens, becomes the government’s most important arm. But even the purest gold is tarnished over time, and the Sector’s noble goals devolve into manipulation, control, and oppression.

Written by the mother-daughter writing team of Kristy, Amira, and Elena Makansi, this debut post-apocalyptic thriller features romance, enduring friendships, edge-of-your-seat action, and heart-wrenching betrayal.

319 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 13 reviews.
