Post-Human Series Volume-1 (Books 1-2), by David Simpson. (Still 1.99?)

Regularly $5.49, today you can get the first two books in David Simpson's Post-Human series for the special price of $1.99. It's a Kindle Countdown Deal, and the offer expires in about a day. Volume II is also available for $1.99 for a limited time.

"Sub-Human: The story of Craig Emilson, an American soldier who dies fighting an evil AI in China, and is revived years later by nanobots, driven by a new AI program. Unfortunately, he finds that his wife has remarried, and the very people who brought him back to life are rebels hiding from the same government he once fought for. Torn between love and loyalty to his country, Craig desperately tries to survive the battle over this new AI. Post-Human: The AI has taken control of the world's resources, and has infused Humans with nanobots. These nanobots prevent aging, heal injuries, and provide occasional intelligence upgrades. A team of researchers on Venus become disconnected from the Net just before a major upgrade, and return to Earth to find that all other Humans have been killed by their nanobots. The team must discover the cause of this Apocalypse, an try desperately to undo what has been done. In both books, David Simpson combines good character development with fast-paced action. He uses a creative application of current scientific theories to imagine what future technologies may be like, and how their applications may affect world politics." -- Amazon reviewer

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.

Well I did not like it, I loved it and finished the book in three days. The story tugs on your heart while you are on the edge of your seat, strange combination, but it works and works well." -- Amazon reviewer

Gingerbread Man, by Maggie Shayne. (Still 0.99?)

This NYT bestseller from Maggie Shayne has a 4+ star rating from over 800 readers. 99 cents today!

"The Gingerbread Man by Maggie Shayne is a first-class romantic suspense novel that kept me completely captivated from start to finish. Syracuse Detective Vince O'Mally made a promise he knew was a mistake. When the mother of two missing children made her umpteenth appearance in his office, Vince promised her he would find her son and daughter and bring them home. So when Vince and his partner follow up a tip on a bad smell coming from a run-down house, Vince is shattered when he finds the savaged bodies of little Bobby and Kara Prague. The only clue is a children's book hidden under the floorboards, "The Gingerbread Man", borrowed nearly twenty years ago from a library in a small town called Dilmun in upstate New York. "The Gingerbread Man" is a fabulous read and I found it extremely hard to put down. Shayne expertly kept me guessing through the whole book - the murderer was a complete mystery to me until the very end! Filled with brilliantly rendered images of raging storms and mysterious autumn nights, this book will provide all the thrills and chills you could ask for. The romance between Holly and Vince is beautifully depicted, and is filled with true to life passion and tenderness. "The Gingerbread Man" is a truly fine example of romantic suspense writing." -- Amazon reviewer

Publisher’s Weekly Raves: “A moving mix of high suspense and romance, this haunting Halloween thriller will propel readers to bolt their doors at night.”

“A gripping story of small town secrets. The suspense will keep you guessing. The characters will steal your heart.” –New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Gardner

Since the day her baby sister was taken, Holly’s mind hasn’t been the same. PTSD, panic attacks, nightmares and blocked memories have plagued her ever since. And now they’ve returned.

Hard-edged Detective Vince O’Malley’s most recent case penetrated even his protective shell. Ordered to take time off to recover, he can’t let go, and on his own, follows the clues to Holly’s small upstate NY town.

His presence stirs ghosts from the past, shadows of a little girl lost, the suspicions of some tight-lipped locals with secrets to hide, and more than that inside Holly’s fragile mind and untouched heart.

“Maggie Shayne's books have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf. She writes wonderful stories combining romance with page-turning thrills, and I highly recommend her to any fan of romantic suspense.” –New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Robards
