Save 87% today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Wow. A remarkable and amazing journey of one man's personal struggles through the powerful grips of alcoholism and his hard-won triumphs with the help of unexplained spiritual communications, key human supporters, and his discovery of a buried childhood event that ignited his downward path. A fight for freedom, well worth the read whether or not you know someone afflicted with addiction. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer

THE ANGEL IN LA is a gripping, nonfiction novel combining absolute realism, humor, and a moving, supernatural twist. While on the tennis tour, Merritt is confronted by an angel in Los Angeles who guides him with a directive. From this point forward Merritt is haunted and oppressed by his heinous nemesis alcohol in a clash of Darkness versus Light. Although it is seemingly winning, causing Merritt to become homeless and a fugitive of the law, he never forgets the angel who tenaciously pursues him and spurs him towards recovery.
If you have ever been curious what really goes through the mind of a chronic alcoholic/addict, then walk with Merritt and get a firsthand peek into the secret underworld of alcoholism, which lured him into boundless depths of assorted self-indulgence beginning in Los Angeles. Unlike the movie Leaving Las Vegas, this true story is about hope and a strong will to live.

Excerpt from THE ANGEL IN LA:
“A shaft of morning light sloped on his face with its warm, radiant power, exposing deep lines that should not have been there. But it was also a face that had witnessed something profoundly mystical—something so intensely spectacular, he could not let go of it as hard as he tried.”

The Execution, by Sharon Cramer. (Still free?)

"Enthralling. The incredible story of two brothers, laid out so eloquently, so deeply, and so colourfully, by Sharon Cramer. An amazingly accurate picture of what could be used in a very intense discussion over the nature/nurture debate. Make sure you have a good supply of tissue handy, and a few hours to spend, as you won't want to put it down until you see the fabulous, emotional and unforeseen climax to this great book." -- Amazon reviewer

Parallel lives are fated to collide in The Execution, a medieval, fantasy thriller, dark adventure, and tragic love story set in fourteenth century France.

A young priest enters the prison cell of a condemned mercenary and is shocked to see the face of this murderer is his own—a mirror image of himself. Unknown to each other until now, the twins form a bond of brotherhood, sealed with their darkest secrets. But with only hours until the execution, the priest questions which man should truly be condemned. Should it be the ruthless killer—a boy from an orphanage who suffered the unimaginable—or himself, the man of God whose own tormented desires ended in tragedy? As the sun rises, the young priest knows what he must do. But can he make the ultimate sacrifice, and free them both?

Snitch & Sneer - Fairy Tale Crashers: Hit The Hood, by Julia Dweck. (Still free?)

"Are you ready for a laugh? Snitch and Sneer are the extraterrestrial stars of this hilarious retake on the story of Little Red Riding Hood. The comic book style adventure will have you laughing out loud as they question the traditional story’s heroine about her actions along the way to visit her Grandma. The fun illustrations will appeal to readers, young and old. The dialogue between the characters is packed with funny punch lines, prompting giggles and laughs out loud galore. Brilliant for stimulating laughter and discussions!" -- Amazon reviewer

Set your tasers to “have a blast” in a slapstick fairy tale adventure that’s out of this world. Snitch and Sneer are the extraterrestrial stars of this sensationally silly graphic picture book, Fairy Tale Crashers. In their first adventure, Snitch and Sneer hit the hood to create chaos, laughter and general mayhem with little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf and dear ol’ Granny like you’ve never seen her before. This duo of fairy tale crashing, galactic goof balls are sure to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. So, warp speed ahead into the zaniest fairy tale adventure to ever hit the solar system.

The Last Safe Place: A Novel, by Ninie Hammon. (Still free?)

"From the first to the last paragraph, The Last safe Place is a thrilling read. Gabriella’s best- selling novel has been a blessing and a curse; a blessing because it offered her financial freedom, a curse because it attracted the attention of a delusional man named Yesheb. In fact, Yesheb is convinced that he is the beast in the novel, and that Gabriella is Zara, the novel's main character. Besides being delusional, Yesheb is ridiculously wealthy and pure evil, and he’ll stop at nothing to play the real life part of the beast in the novel. A skillfully written psychological thriller. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer


YOU CAN RUN FROM A STALKER, BUT YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THE DEMONS IN YOUR PAST

Yesheb al Tobbanoft is Evil with skin on.

In the deepest, darkest midnight of her soul, an acclaimed poet abandons the lyric beauty that feeds her spirit to lash out at life and the world with contemporary fiction.
 

Gabriella Carmichael writes a horror novel, pours all her pain into the female protagonist of a paranormal mystery about demons. Then one of them crawls up out of the pages into her life. A deranged fan who believes he is The Beast of Babylon from her novel turns up at a book signing and stalks her, determined to claim her as his bride. And to sacrifice her son, Ty, as a blood offering to seal their union.

Yesheb al Tobbanoft is a man with the kind of obscene wealth that means he can do anything he wants and get away with it, and the kind of soul-less insanity that means there’s absolutely nothing he won’t do.

Gabriella, Ty and Ty's grandfather, Theo—a crusty old stand-up comic called Slap Yo Mama Carmichael—run from the lunatic back to the only place in Gabriella's life where she ever felt truly safe. But once in the solitude of the Rocky Mountains, she discovers that facing the demons from her past may be more difficult and dangerous than facing the one who stalks her.

What happened the summer her family spent on Mt. Antero when she was 8 years old—that killed one brother and set the other on an inexorable path to self-destruction—had it really been her fault? And the rest of what happened on the mountainside that day, the magical part—was it real or merely a fantasy born of the loneliness of two child prodigies? Gabriella didn’t come to the cabin called St. Elmo’s Fire looking for answers to those questions. Or did she? Or is it that the answers have finally, after all these years, come looking for her?

Will Yesheb find her and corner his prey the same way the Beast of Babylon cornered his in the pages of Gabriella’s novel—under a full moon as lightning dances in the velvet darkness behind the mountains? If he does, all their lives and demons will collide in a final, apocalyptic celebration of one man's madness. Then Gabriella's only hope will lie in the great mystery of her childhood—the unexplainable power of a 2,000-year-old tree. Is its magic strong enough to save them? Can a single, perfect bristlecone pine somehow determine the fate of them all? 

325 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 188 reviews.
