The Oasis of Filth - Part 1, by Keith Soares. (Still free?)

"Wonderfully unique! From the concept that was developed on how the virus is thought to be spread, to how those potentially infected are dealt with, each of these ideas were completely unique ideas that I thought showed a great deal of creativity. I am looking forward to reading more by this talented story teller!" -- Amazon reviewer

A #1 best seller in Post-Apocalyptic fiction!

From its seemingly innocuous beginning, The Oasis of Filth is the chronicle of the outbreak of a mysterious disease that ravages mankind. The story is told by a doctor in suburban Maryland who is on the front lines of discovering the disease, but finds himself quickly overwhelmed by a world that collapses into paranoia, fear and loneliness. He makes an unexpected connection to Rosa, a beautiful woman half his age with an inquisitive nature and inherent sense of hope and resourcefulness, and together they go on a sprawling journey across the eastern United States, finding danger, hope, and possibly even the salvation of the world.

Self-Publishing Reviews: 4 stars "The book sets up a believable and in many ways terrifying world, one which takes the zombie genre in a direction that can actually be called unique..."

IndieReader Approved: 4 stars "...the tension steadily builds as the narrative progresses, exploding at certain moments with lively, exciting action scenes and gritty images..."

The House on Persimmon Road, by Jackie Weger. (Still 2.99?)

"Imagine that your husband left you and the children in his mid-life crisis, not for another woman but to wear a yellow gown and become a monk. And that your father died and your pampered mother moved in with you. In an effort to keep the extended family afloat while you get your computer programming business going, you buy a fixer-upper with its very own resident ghost. Add in the handsome neighbor with a secret and his elderly father. Now you've got a story that sparkles with love and laughter the whole way through." -- Amazon reviewer

Need Help? Hire a Ghost. She Cooks.

Lottie Roberts is restless and lonely. She’s been sitting on her bones for decades, waiting for her ticket to heaven until… Justine Hale and her family take up residence in Lottie’s two-hundred-year-old plantation house. Lottie senses in Justine a kindred spirit—filled with heartache and in reduced circumstances—which Lottie considers mirrors her own situation exactly. Yet Justine is trying to do the right thing. Else why is she burdened with a bankrupt mother without an ounce of common sense? Or an ex mother-in-law who looks like a pickled beet with a tongue sharper than a hatchet? And where is the father of the recalcitrant eleven year-old boy and the eight-year-old afraid of her own shadow?

Justine needs help and Lottie is of a mind to provide it. But before Lottie can say squat and Justine even unlocks the front door, Tucker Highsmith shows up to steal her thunder. His dark eyes, lazy grin, and sexy Alabama drawl coupled with the dern braggart’s Mr. Fix-it talents just might be the answer to all of Justine’s problems. Or maybe not…

If Everyone Knew Every Plant And Tree, by Julia C Johnston. (Still free?)

"Heartwarming coming of age story. Oliver is a 14-year-old boy who feels invisible to his Mam and Dad as his 6-year-old sister contracts a rare brain disease. He struggles to find the good in life, and to not feel guilty for being healthy while his adored little sister suffers with her life-threatening illness. The dialogue in this book was quite witty and the play on plant names was brilliant." -- Amazon reviewer

**TOP 10 BEST SELLER** YA/crossover novel.

Brilliantly written, very funny, and deeply moving contemporary fiction, 'If Everyone Knew Every Plant And Tree’ is a story that will enchant you, inspire you and stay with you forever.

 

"The day it all began, it felt like lightning had hit our house..."
 

Ollie is drowning. No one notices.
 

Oliver Campbell, fourteen, fanciful and funny in equal measure, struggles to unravel the knots of emotion when his little sister, Lily, falls gravely ill with a mysterious disease. Irritating and puzzling to his two older half-brothers, neglected by his self-absorbed mum and dad, and unfalleninlovewith by Poppy Teasdale, he longs to be something more than invisible.
 

Quirky Kamal doesn’t think it’s weird that Ollie, his best friend, is fascinated by words and plants; he knows what it’s like to be different and to be bullied; he coaches him on love, and how to clinch his dream-girl; he tickles him with his high-falutin language and aspirations; he impresses him with his fortitude despite a tragic past; he is there when his life takes a terrible turn; he is loyal to the end.
 

Ollie’s two special people throw him life jackets, but will they be enough to save him?
 

˃˃˃ What people are saying...
"I was stunned by this book." 

"One of the most intelligent books I have ever read." 
"One of those very rare and special books that delivers on all levels."
"This is a beautifully written, tender and touching story that made me laugh and cry."
248 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 15 reviews.

Shattered Palms (Lei Crime Book 6), by Toby Neal. (Still 0.99?)

"Love this series! If you are a crime novel lover, then you will enjoy this series. In addition to the usual elements, there is a love story subplot that tugs at your heartstrings. The vivid descriptions of Hawaiian landscape and birds in this novel paint a truly beautiful picture." -- Amazon reviewer

Maui is lush mountains, cloud forest and exquisite birdsong—but for Detective Lei Texeira, arrows break that peace.

Someone is stalking poachers that are capturing Maui’s rarest birds, and Lei pursues the case with her usual leap-first, look-later style—but will she be able to catch a killer, save the birds, and still make it to her own wedding? Shattered Palms is a roller coaster ride from the top of Haleakala to the beach and back again, with extinction at stake.

“Toby Neal creates a captivating balance of the beauty of the islands contrasted with the ugliness of murder, and complicated by the trials of Lei’s personal life. A must-read for Neal fans.” Thomas K. Matthews, author of Rejection.

362 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 135 reviews.
