Free and bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Oct 22)

Death in Nostalgia City, by Mark S. Bacon. (Still 0.99?)

"Bacon is an excellent storyteller. He has imagination and is able to put his ideas together in such a way that readers won’t be able to put this book down. The characters are well-developed and seem like real people. The nostalgic theme park is unique and fascinating; it seems Bacon has done his research on the 70s, and everything mentioned—from the old cars, old music and radio programs—is absolutely true to the period. Death in Nostalgia City will especially appeal to baby boomers because of the 70s theme, but the book is highly recommended for almost anyone. It’s a delightful trip back in time with plenty of twists, turns, and a surprise ending. " -- --Karen Hancock, Suspense/Thriller Books Editor

Nostalgia City theme park re-creates a small town from the early 1970s in every detail, but when rides are sabotaged and tourists killed and injured, an unlikely duo is persuaded to investigate.  

Lyle Deming is an anxiety-prone ex-cop, now driving a Nostalgia City cab to escape the stress of police work.  Kate Sorensen is a 6’ 2 ½” former college basketball star, now theme park PR director.  She must play spin doctor and help investigate at the same time.

The two likeable characters slowly learn each other’s strengths and form a bond. Their investigation of corporate greed and murder lead them from the Arizona theme park to downtown Boston where they go undercover at a giant conglomerate to find the evidence they need to save the park from more violence and bankruptcy.  

The mystery is filled with puzzles to solve, plot twists, plus suspenseful action and a fast-paced, unexpected ending.


Award winner at the 2015 San Francisco Book Festival.

“There is so much to love about this book.  It pulled me in from the very beginning and never let me go.” 
--Open Book Society

 “There isn’t an ounce of fat in this novel. Bacon’s prose is clean, crisp and lightning fast. The plot moves like a theme park ride. Death in Nostalgia City is a spectacular read.”
--Brian Kaufman, author, Death Beyond the Fence; reviewer Rabbit Hole Reviews

Bacon plots well, char­ac­terizes well, and writes well.

INFECTED (Click Your Poison Book 1), by James Schannep. (Still 0.99?)

"Great book that doubles as a party game. Witty pop-culture savvy writing makes this a highly enjoyable read and since it has multiple plot-lines it's easily re-readable. If you like "The Walking Dead," "Dawn of the Dead," or "Shaun of the Dead," then INFECTED is definitely the kind of book you're looking for. The "choose-your-own-adventure" click-your-poison is an excellent nostalgic throwback to the adventure stories of the 80s and 90s, but since this is an adult zombie apocalypse novel, the choices have better and more serious consequences." -- Amazon Reviewer

3 Unique Storylines. Over 50 Possible Endings. Just one question... Will YOU Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

Everyone has their plan; what they’d do to survive if and when the zombies come. Now you can see how you’d hold up against the legions of undead—without needing to call the CDC because crazed bath salts users are trying to eat your face off.

Here’s how it works: You, Dear Reader, are the main character of this story. Live, die, and rise again based solely on the merit of your own choices. Each link represents a choice, and there’s no going back, so choose wisely.

"Infected. Is. So. Good." -- A girl just like you.

"Holy $#*% this is awesome!" -- A guy more or less like you.

Fans of The Walking Dead or George Romero's Living Dead series can now live their own apocalyptic adventure. Like the gamebooks popular in the 1980s-90s (Choose Your Own Adventure, Give Yourself Goosebumps, etc), this is a series where you choose how to progress through the book. Unlike any others, this is the first series designed specifically for adults. And as an ebook, you simply click your choice and the story flows forward for you. No flipping pages.

Get INFECTED!

GrayNet: Book 4 of the Spies Lie Series, by DS Kane. (Still free?)

"I have been very pleased with the character development, pacing of the plot, and the twists and turns in the action-packed stories. I particularly liked how DS Kane developed the concept for the use of technology and human behaviors in this book. I will be picking up book 5 again soon so that I can read it again with all of the backstory." -- Amazon Reviewer

Seduction and Surrender (The Billionaire's Temptation Series Book 1), by Cali MacKay. (Still free?)

"Cali has definitely done an excellent job on this book. It started to seduce and surely had us surrendering here. I for on always enjoys her book and this book was entertaining from the beginning to the end. Great read Cali." -- Amazon Reviewer

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Cali MacKay...

He's a cocky bastard--with a secret heart of gold.
She's desperate--and too stubborn to give in to his demands.

Chef Emma Sparrow has poured her heart and soul-not to mention all her money-into
the restaurant of her dreams. But when Quinn Ryker, her landlord and
billionaire playboy, refuses to renew her lease, her entire world and all those
who depend on her, are at risk.

Quinn's spent months trying to stifle his curiosity for the gorgeous chef who runs the
kitchen of his favorite bistro like she's a five-star general. He can't help
but want her, especially when she comes marching into his office full of fire
and passion, furious with him and demanding he renew her lease. Yet he now has
something she wants, and he knows just what he'll do with that heat and anger
of hers, especially once she's in his bed.

A bargain is stuck that will save Emma's restaurant and give Quinn what he most
desires-Emma. But it turns out there's a lot more on the line when negotiating
matters involving one's body, heart, and soul.

*** This novel contains a Happily Ever After ending for the couple, though some minor plot lines continue to the next book and are resolved completely during that story. Due to the adult language and explicit sex scenes, this book is for adults only.***
