Altered Egos: A Collection of Short Stories, by Steve Justice. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A fun collection! I enjoyed this collection of short stories. There's a good variety and I especially loved the two about writing. A clever and creative mix, and time richly spent." -- Amazon reviewer

Altered Egos is a collection of nine short stories written by Steve Justice during his early years as a writer, some originally written as early as 2000 but since re-written or polished for this collection. This series features a number of experiments in different writing styles and genres as Justice believes short stories provide the opportunity for a writer to push his or her boundaries and try something new.

With stories ranging widely in setting and tone, including dystopian futures, a campus comedy, a tragedy, a fable and an absurd surrealist story, this collection provides a little bit of everything and, the author hopes, a lot of entertainment!

Originally launched on the 4th March, this collection was withdrawn by the author in May as he wished to further work on it. It is now re-published as a second edition with two additional stories, new formatting and a new cover.

Carpe DiEmily (Part 1): A Free Romantic Comedy Chick Lit Adventure, by Riley J. Ford. (Still free?)

"Hilarious chick lit! Riley Ford has done it again, creating a fantastic cast of characters in her first comedy chick lit "Carpe DiEmily". Ever since I've read her debut young adult paranormal novel (Into You) I've been eagerly awaiting getting my hands on her next offering. Carpe DiEmily did not disappoint!" -- Amazon reviewer

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER IN ROMANTIC COMEDY & ADVENTURE! This book (200 pages free) is part 1 of a two-part installment series. IT IS NOT THE FULL BOOK. Parts 1 & 2 (400 pages) may be purchased separately for $3.99. 
**18+ for language and off-color humor**

Emily Keane has her life all planned out. She's played by the rules and never stepped outside her box, and now she will finally be rewarded with everything she always dreamed of: a job promotion, a fiance, and a future she can count on. But when her perfectly planned world falls apart, Emily is plunged into the wildest year of her life.

From the beaches of California to Jamaica, New York, and Europe, Emily finds herself on a madcap race against time, running from an unscrupulous organ broker who wants her dead, all the while checking items off her unusual bucket list. On top of it all, she's falling in love with the most unlikely person, a man who can never return her feelings...but will his friendship be enough?

Confronting one hilarious misadventure after another, Emily finally learns who she really is and how to seize the day...

Carpe DiEmily is a raunchy, fearless comedy in the same vein as the movie Bridesmaids, to which it has been favorably compared. Both female and male readers will enjoy this zany comedic adventure.

To Kill A Warlock (Dulcie O'Neil), by H.P. Mallory. (Still free?)

"Wonderful! H.P. Mallory continues her success as a superb Urban Fantasy author with her sophomore book, To Kill A Warlock. Full of humor, intrigue, romance and betrayal of the ultimate kind, Mallory pulled me in from the beginning. Mallory creates a fantastical world where supernatural creatures thrive. The beginning of the book had me charmed and laughing, the end had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Dulcie is a heroine readers will immediately relate to and cheer for until the end." -- Amazon reviewer

If you like your reads steamy (this is an urban fantasy adult series, not for kids or teens!) and you appreciate a butt-kicking, take no prisoners heroine, read on!

TO KILL A WARLOCK is the first book in the Dulcie O’Neil Series:

The murder of a dark arts warlock.
A shape-shifting, ravenous creature on the loose.
A devilishly handsome stranger sent to investigate.
Sometimes working law enforcement for the Netherworld is a real bitch.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator—a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world.

When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie’s got her hands full.

As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

The Island (The Island Series), by Jen Minkman. (Still free?)

"This is more than a short novella but far from a full novel. A nice, fast read. The pace just keeps you going, page after page. The style is simple yet captivating. A bit modern, bit primitive and yet futuristic dystopian all put together. Truly an enjoyable read. I look forward to continuing the series." -- Amazon reviewer

‘I walk toward the sea. The endless surface of the water extends to the horizon, whichever way I look.

Our world is small. We are on our own, and we only have ourselves to depend on. We rely on the Force deep within us, as taught to us by our forefathers.

If I were to walk westward from here, I would come across a barrier – the Wall. Behind it, there are Fools. At least, that’s what everyone says.

I have never seen one.’

Leia lives on the Island, a world in which children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are ten years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it are not amenable to reason – they believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors.
But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true?

Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool?

(Disclaimer: this novella contains a few references to the famous sci-fi movie Star Wars which are pivotal to the plot. None of the characters in The Island are in any way related to the characters in the movie.)
