Six Points of Light: Hook's Origin, by Kalynn Bayron. (Still 2.99?)

"This is a completely different take on Captain Hook and who he was before he became the villain that we all know. He wasn't so bad, afterall. I found the concept to be really enchanting, and I appreciated it a lot. Five stars all the way, I truly can't wait to see what Kalynn Bayron has in store for us next." -- Amazon reviewer

St. Catherine's is a place for misfits, for the forgotten, and it is also the only home James Cook has ever known. Abandoned on the front steps as an infant, James is raised by Sister Maddie who loves him like the mother he never knew. Growing up at St. Catherine's, James battles one illness after another, and spends most of his time in the infirmary.
 

One night, a young boy is delivered to St. Catherine's in the arms of his distraught mother. The boy, Peter, is mischievous and James tries his hardest to stay as far away from him, and his band of merry followers, as possible. The younger boys at St. Catherine's are drawn to the charismatic Peter, but James, being older and in his humble opinion, wiser, is not recruited so easily. 

As the two become more closely acquainted, Peter reveals to James that he has a secret. This secret will turn James' life upside down and set he and Peter on a collision course with destiny in that far of place known to children and dreamers...Neverland.
 

Before he was Captain Hook, he was simply James Cook, and as it turns out, he was not such a dastardly villain after all.
 

Join some of the most beloved characters in literature as their roots are laid bare and the truth of their humble beginnings is revealed.

The Unforgivable Fix: A Justice Novel, by T. E. Woods. (Still free?)

"A brilliant read not for the faint of heart. A brave and realistic exposure of life in the real world with an authentic heroine I truly wish existed." -- Amazon reviewer

On the heels of her runaway hits The Fixer and The Red Hot Fix, T. E. Woods ratchets up the tension with her newest explosive thriller in the fast-paced Justice series.

The killer won’t come for you, you fool. He’ll come for me.

Detective Mort Grant of the Seattle PD has finally decided to sell. The home where he and his late wife raised two kids feels too large and too full of old memories. His son is married and raising a family of his own, and despite desperate efforts to find her, Mort has lost touch with his wayward daughter. That is, until the day she walks back into her childhood home and begs for his help.

For the last four years, Allie Grant has been the lover—and confidante, confessor, and counselor—of one of the world’s most powerful and deadly men. But a sudden, rash move has put Allie in the crosshairs of a ruthless Russian crime lord. Mort knows of only one place where Allie will be safe: with The Fixer.

As a hired desperado, The Fixer has killed twenty-three people—and Mort was complicit in her escape from the law. She has built an impregnable house, stocked it with state-of-the-art gear, armed it to the teeth, and locked herself away from the world. But even The Fixer may not be able to get justice for Allie when real evil comes knocking

Follow the Crow (Vanished, #1), by B. B. Griffith. (Still free?)

"Takes you away into an other-wordly experience on a Navajo reservation and I didn't want that experience to end. The author clearly has a pulse on the culture and the feeling of the environment he writes about. I love authors that take the time to delve into something outside their own experiences, and this one surely did. Such a great read!" -- Amazon reviewer

Ben Dejooli is a Navajo cop who can't escape his past. Six years ago his little sister Ana vanished without a trace. His best friend saw what happened, but he refuses to speak of what he knows, and so was banished from the Navajo tribe. That was the day the crows started following Ben.

Caroline Adams is a nurse with a special talent: she sees things others can’t see. She knows that Ben is more than he seems, and that the crows are trying to tell him something.

What the crows know will shed new light on the mystery of Ana’s disappearance, and throw Ben and Caroline into a race against time to find out what happened before they end up vanishing just like she did.

Scale: How to Grow Your Business by Working Less, by Frank Bria. (Still 0.99?)

"I started my own business a year ago and to guide me through the process joined an expensive year long mentoring/training program for entrepreneurs and a more expensive business coach. These strategies were very helpful, however, what was missing was the bigger picture of the phases of growing a business to scale and what actions you need to take at which phases and why. What I value about this book is that it's written in layman's terms and it is PRACTICAL. This will be my business Bible." -- Amazon reviewer


Your Business Needs to Scale
 

In the author's own words:
"I remember the day it hit me.

"I was in Kiev when I got a call from my wife. She was in the hospital, having driven herself there during the middle of the night. She hadn’t realized quite how ill she was, but in fact she needed surgery. Meanwhile, I was halfway around the world, and my children, who fortunately weren’t very young, were alone. But they had to get themselves fed, and off to school; their mother was in the hospital and their father was far from home. I felt helpless, and like a terrible husband and father. It took me three days to get home, three days during which I thought about the price of success.

"Although I had created the successful business I had aspired to create, I was trapped. I couldn’t make personal time for anything that was important to me if I expected to deliver the products and services I had promised to my clients. My physical presence was required, and there was no substitute. No one could fill in for me; no one could take my place. Of course, this gave me job security, but it came at the cost of not being able to take a vacation or nothing would get done. I was living the life of a successful businessman, but it was not the life that I had intended.
My physical presence was required at home, too. While I was on the road, I missed seeing my children grow up, let alone participating in their development. The concept of scale had become personal for me."

What Is Holding You Back? What had happened to the author occurs to many entrepreneurs and business owners when they discover that their business has grown so large and become so successful that they have become trapped by their own success. Has this happened to you?

A scalable business makes it possible to create passive income and grow the business by doing less – but doing so more thoughtfully. It takes effort on your part to truly evaluates each of the Four Keys of Scale and make the appropriate changes in order to yield those benefits. The promise of scale is being able to earn more while doing less.

This seems like a contradictory concept and requires you to rethink how we operate.

A Scaled Business Runs Without Depending On Your 100% Attention Imagine what your life would be like if you could earn money without having to exercise the same amount of effort that you expend today.
 

What if you are in a business, like mine was, that is entirely dependent on you and your presence to generate income? If you don't work, you don't earn. Imagine transforming that business into one in which the earning takes place even without your direct involvement; you can, in fact, sit back and watch the money roll into your bank account.

This book teaches you how to do it. By mastering the Four Keys of Scale, you can create a business that runs without you. And until you have that, you don't have a business. You have a job.
