"Tonya Kappes has written a fast paced and humorous paranormal mystery. The characters are quirky and the dialogue is filled with humor. The story is fast paced and filled with red herrings and unexpected twists. The ending took me completely by surprise. I never guessed who the killer was. This book is a very satisfying read. Don't miss it." -- Amazon reviewer
Another day.

Another funeral.

Another ghost.

Another average day in the life of young funeral home director, Emma Lee Raines.

After a perilous run-in with a plastic Santa Claus, Emma Lee, co-owner of Eternal Slumber Funeral Home in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, sees the ghost of town gossip Ruthie Sue Payne, who is proving to be a real pain, more so in death than while living. Recently deceased, Ruthie reveals to Emma Lee that her demise wasn't caused by accidentally falling down the steps at the Sleepy Hollow Inn as everyone believes—she was pushed...murdered.

In order for the ghost to cross over—and for Emma Lee to be rid of Ruthie for good—she must find a desperate killer...or risk being haunted forever.

"The "Human" series is set in an amazingly high tech world - The technology is amazing and will be sure to keep even the most die hard fan of the genre on the edge of their seat at the possibilities BUT where this trilogy surpasses many others is that despite the bells and whistles there is also a heavy human element to the story - The characters have abilities we can only dream of but the issues they face and the questions they must answer are ones we can all relate to. The series is well written and highly engaging, for fans of Transhumanism and just general Science Fiction stories this series is a must have and now as an added bonus you can save yourself a few dollars!" -- Amazon reviewer

"Wow! Reads like a action film in reeling off in your head!" -By Joanna Daneman --Sub-Human Review

"A Better Read Than Many of the Big Names in the Genre." -By Michael J. Crow --Sub-Human Review

"Post-Human, a noteworthy sci-fi novel" --Post-Human Review

"A thought-provoking, energetic sci-fi book, with a robust dose of high-octane exploits." -A.F. Stewart, author of Chronicles of the Undead --Trans-Human Review

The series started in 2009 with Post-human, followed by its sequel, 2011's Trans-Human, and then leading to the prequel, published in the summer of 2012, Sub-Human. The trilogy can be read in the order of publication or in the chronological order of the entire epic story. The ebook is ordered according to the narrative, but reading it in the order of publication is its own, rewarding experience. It's all up to your preference.

Readers have taken to calling this the "Human Series," and why not' It's the story of humanity's future, both the possible bliss, the possible torment, and all of the in between. It might expand your view of what "human" really means, it might make you consider the pleasures and pains of immortality, and reflect on the extraordinary benefits and profound danger of strong A.I. All of this delivered in an epic series, paced faster than most novels, with twists and turns around almost every page, and a set of characters with whom you'll fall in love.

Free today!

I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Story), by C. Gockel. (Still free?)

Free today, this fascinating thriller puts Loki and Thor in modern times, with deep repercussions for young veterinarian-in-training Amy Lewis.

"This is a fun read, it includes plenty of background for those not immersed in Norse mythology which will interest both those who are familiar with it, and those who are not. I enjoyed the interaction of the characters and the misinterpretation of their interactions between each other due to social differences of dark age Scandinavia and modern day America. The characters are very real and the story reads fast, a great read." -- Amazon reviewer

In the middle of America, on Route 44, Amy Lewis has a plan — to get to her grandma’s house in time for dinner. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten...

In this tale that is equal parts “Another Fine Myth,” “American Gods,” and “Once Upon a Time,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, still very mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her boobs, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

This first volume of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

PURE VISION: The Magdalene Revelation, by Perri Birney. (Still 0.99?)

"A thrill ride in the vein of The Da Vinci Code but with a much larger vision for all of us. The alchemy is part historic fiction, part spiritual adventure, and a variety of interfaith metaphysics that metamorphosize into a golden vision of world peace . . . a page turner." -- Paul Hertel, Whole Living

"Presents a fascinating story full of intrigue and history. Birney's fiction seamlessly blends science and religion into a tale worthy of Indiana Jones . . . The book left this reader confident that idealism is not dead and that, sometimes, it can be the road map by which we might save ourselves." --Cynthia Warren, Daily Freeman

"Birney infuses this epic novel with feminine echoes of The Da Vinci Code and The Red Tent, with her eyes on the prize of world peace. Reporter Maggie Seline courts controversy by championing an international Jerusalem...when she disappears, women around the globe march for peace...powerful men vie for two ancient artifacts." -- Chronogram

An ancient artifact is stolen . . . A long-lost document is found . . . A mysterious and dangerous journey unfolds . . .

New York Times reporter Maggie Seline writes an explosive book that offers a controversial solution to the Middle East crisis. When she uncovers a radical energy scheme that threatens the oil industry, Maggie suddenly vanishes. Her disappearance ignites a worldwide women's march toward Jerusalem that rattles the status quo and parallels a frantic race to possess ancient talismans.

An upcoming peace conference hides the true motivation of Giovanni Mabus, outgoing president of the European Commission, who intends to exploit a powerful mythological connection between two legendary treasures. In league with the clandestine pseudo-Masonic group, Propaganda Due, he sets in motion events aimed at furthering political and military chaos in the Middle East in order to accomplish his aims. Meanwhile, Maggie and Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Michael Sonada race to thwart the sinister plot -- a race that takes them into the forbidden regions of Nepal to make an earth-shattering discovery.

PURE VISION brings together ancient myths and contemporary challenges in a provocative and inspiring thrill ride. At every turn, Perri Birney's intriguing scenario encourages a closer look at the spiritual forces that infuse the world's political battles.
