"This indie gem stole my heart with its fun humor, endearing characters, and thrilling moments. The transition from funny to chilling was at times immediate, combining these two elements very enjoyably." -- Wickedly Bookish

A little magic can go a long way -- to really screwing up a girl's life!

Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.

Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her -- literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself.

The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara's body!

This is a full-length novel, at 88,500 words (332 pages).

Fun House Chronicles, by Linda B. Myers. (Still 0.99?)

This poignant novel is $2 off today.

"Set in a nursing home, this book takes a subject many of us don't give much thought to, and spins a tale that draws you in from page one. It's the story of Lily, an unconventional senior who isn't going anywhere without a fight, and the people around her. As her daughter Sylvia comes to realise, "...if you didn't have the family you were born into, you got yourself another one". Lily's 'family' grows to include a number of interesting and surprising characters; I'm so looking forward to meeting some of them again in the promised follow-up. A great read - and three cheers for a heroine well out of her teens!" -- Amazon reviewer

WHEN YOU GROW OLD, WHEN YOUR BODY BECOMES ITS OWN WORST ENEMY, WHAT HAPPINESS CAN POSSIBLY REMAIN?

Lily Gilbert is pissed. She’s lost one leg to diabetes, and the next infection could kill her. She enters a nursing home ready to flout authority and kick administrative butt until the chill realities of institutionalization nearly flatten her. She soon calls it the Fun House for the scary sights and sounds that await her there.

Lily grapples with suicide until she becomes drawn in by the other residents and staffers – a quirky and eccentric crew with enough idiosyncrasies of their own to keep Lily intrigued. Prepare for more than a few surprises along the way.

Things get worse when the nursing home threatens to close leaving Lily no other place to go. How she, her daughter and her new friends handle this challenge shows that each stage of life can be its own adventure.

Broken for a Purpose, by Gisela Yohannan. (Still free?)

"Gisela Yohannan presents the truth with sensitivity but without sugarcoating. She uses simple languages to explain something so complicated as human suffering. Great book. Intelligently written. Profound message with straight to the point practicality. I failed to recognize a thread seaming all chapters –or maybe there isn't one, but each chapter, independently, convey a valuable lesson. This is not a “one-time-read” kind of book. It is a reference book for inquisitive minds." -- Amazon reviewer


“If God loves me, why am I going through so many trials?”

If that is your question, hope awaits you in this sensitive book.
With great Scriptural reverence, Gisela walks with you through the veil of brokenness and shares transparently what God has taught her through much heartache.

You will discover:
  • Your infinite value to God
  • God's purposes and methods of testing
  • The key to gaining new strength
  • How to overcome, rather than suppress, your problems

Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents, by Marty Essen. (Still 0.99?)

This award-winning book for all ages is a steal today at 99 cents!

"Informative, fun, fearless! I just finished reading Marty's book on Kindle, and I loved it! There were several terrifying moments that really made me admire the couple's courage. Marty's humor made me laugh out loud in some spots, and his writing style is a pleasure to read. Even an arm chair adventurer like me could enjoy the experience of a lifetime through Marty's delightful book. The photos were marvelous and were an integral part of the journey. Thanks so much for a wonderful ride." -- Amazon reviewer

Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents follows Marty and Deb Essen on a three-and-a-half-year-long adventure to some of the wildest places on all seven continents.

The American couple began crisscrossing the globe with the simple intention of searching for rare and interesting wildlife. When their travels coincided with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the added element made them unwitting ambassadors for peace. Their experiences--from amusing to life threatening--changed their lives forever.

This is not your average travelogue. Marty Essen has written a book that entertains, informs, and poignantly reminds us that we all share a small planet.

Locations visited include: Belize, Peru (the Amazon Rainforest), Argentina, Australia (Queensland), Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, and Northwest Territories), Antarctica, Europe (Spain, France, Switzerland, and Andorra), Malaysia (Borneo), and Africa (Zimbabwe).

455 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 40 reviews.
