Bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday Nov 27)

My Wishful Thinking, by Shel Delisle. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"You're in for a big adventure and lots of laugh out loud moments when you read this book. I absolutely loved it and finished it the night I first read it. An easy read and lots of fun as we figure more about Lo's background and how one incredibly handsome genie can sure change a girls life. It's up to them if they take advantage of it...or do the right thing. A 5. Was really fast paced and kept me turning the pages." -- Amazon reviewer

WHAT WOULD YOU WISH FOR?

Birthday candles, dandelions, turkey bones or shooting stars-- seventeen-year-old Logan Carter never passes up a chance to make a wish. But there's no magic in her life until the day a genie goes poof and promises to grant her every desire.
Can the genie's magic finally bring her father home? Get her mother's life on track? Help Lo, once and for all, find true love?

Any one of those would be real magic.

It all seems possible--if she can figure out one little complication. She has to share the genie with her best friend Emily, and their desires only come true if they wish for and receive the exact same thing. It's time for Logan to compromise, because even when magic is involved, no two people--no matter how close--can agree on everything.
 
Be sure to look for other great titles by Shel Delisle, including DOLPHIN GIRL and WINGING IT.

Echoes from the Lost Ones (Song of Forgetfulness), by Nicola McDonagh. (Still 0.99?)

This Kindle Countdown Deal is just 99 cents today.

"A fresh voice! What an amazing read! Not only world building but language building as well! So much of the setting comes through in the language of the characters. Adara is a fantastic heroine and protagonist. She is strong, smart and unaware of her true powers. I can't wait to read more in the series. I cannot stress enough how much I loved the mythology and history of this future world. The cadence and language of the book is amazing." -- Amazon reviewer

-----
I’m not like the other girlygigs in Cityplace; I’m a bringer. I can sing to the only animals left in NotsoGreatBritAlbion and make them land. Adara, catcher of birds -that’s what they call me and that’s what I can do.

Now that the Agros have cut supplies and folk are near starved, I’d best keep shutums about my name though, or everyone will want a piece of me. I’d best creep and peep all stealthy-like to track down my bro-bro, snatched by Agro scum for who knows what.

Good job I’m trained in S.A.N.T. ways too, for I’ll need all my roughhouse skills to keep the Agro spies, Nearly’s and wolfies at bay until I find and bring home my bro and all the other missing Meeks.

I just wish I knew who or what is following my every move.
-----

In this unsettling and mysterious vision of the future, animals are almost extinct and humans are subjugated by the sinister and secretive Agros; nothing is as it seems. And 17-year-old Adara must use all her courage and power battling against evil forces to save herself and those she loves.

This is a coming of age tale with a difference. The inventive slang-derived language creates a fresh and dynamic style to create a truly compelling world inhabited by characters such as Clonies, Nearlymen, and S.A.N.T.S.

KLAN: Killing America, by Ken Rossignol. (Still 0.99?)

A journalist recounts the appalling history of the KKK. If you buy (or already have) the printed book, the ebook is free through Amazon's new Matchbook program.

"Ken Rossignol is a journalist by trade with the unique ability to bring yesterday's news to today's readers! The Ku Klux Klan came about shortly after the Civil War ended. The Klan's hatred and dastardly deeds terrorized our nation for many decades. There have been many books written about this subject, but none from the perspective of a reporter. Rossignol has done a superb job!" -- Bruce M. Caplan, RadioBookReviews.com

The strife and horrors of the Civil War in America were raw with the wounds of the war lasting for decades; and affecting those who lived in both the North and the South. As the nation struggled to find unity, the forces of darkness and of those who wished to rule through intimidation and terror, spread their wicked ways under the cover of white sheets.
This is the story of the Ku Klux Klan and their chief brand: Lynchings, as told in the original newspaper stories from journals across the nation. Some are brief, telling only of a single attack while others are more comprehensive and detailed, telling the story with the inclusion of complex and emotional occurrences.
The attempt of the KKK to cloak the power of control over others with fear and violence is explained in some of these news stories. The chief advocate and leader of the Klan was interviewed by reporters and allowed fair access to give his side of the story. The heroism of various groups such as the NAACP and others who risked their lives standing up to thugs and criminals is also noted, as well as the words of those individuals and leaders who fought to eliminate the influence of the Ku Klux Klan.
While the KKK had as much right as any group to demonstrate and articulate their cause, the deceits and criminal actions employed by them separated their group from the legal actions of others.
For readers in the 21st Century who know little of the life and death of the KKK, the admonition to understand and know history in order to avoid repeating it, should be considered. Therefore, it is in that hope that this book has been prepared. WARNING: Authentic descriptions are vivid and brutal and the racially charged language of this historic news reports and commentary has not been modified. This material is for adults and parental guidance is appropriate.

Save $2 on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A WIFE BY CHRISTMAS is the reason why we read romance...the perfect story for any season." -- The Romance Reviews Top Pick

Guthrie, Oklahoma, 1906

History teacher Ellie Henderson, has been a thorn in High School Principal Max Colbert’s side ever since he took over three months ago. When she’s not flying by his office, late for her class, with books and papers jumbled in her arms, she’s attending Suffragettes meetings against his orders.

Because of her family connections, Max can’t fire her, but he can certainly find someone to marry her, and keep her busy in the kitchen--and far away from his school. Max soon finds that what seemed like a good idea can turn into disaster when Miss Ellie Henderson is involved. The woman is a master at getting into trouble.

With the Christmas season in full swing, he has many opportunities to introduce her to prospective husbands. However, he gets the uncomfortable feeling that no one is worthy of the minx...
