Weirdville: Fright Train (Lower Grade Spooky Fun Adventure), by Majanka Verstraete. (Still free?)

"This was a quick easy read with a spooky theme. The third in the series but easily read as a stand alone book we join young Charlie on a train ride to his grandmothers. Even though this had a scarey undertone, it was not so frightening that small children will have nightmares. The villain was the scariest of the trains characters and she was portrayed as a typical witch with warts and sharp teeth. If you are looking for a story to entertain and not scare this is good choice. You will get the spooky with out being scared silly and you and your children will get to enjoy a cute story." -- Amazon Reviewer


Fright Train by Majanka Verstraete

Evolved Publishing presents the third book in the Weirdville series, a spooky adventure that's perfect for kids 7-11 years old. [DRM-Free]

Lower Grade, Horror, Adventure (Kids 7-11 Years Old)

Charlie’s parents drop him off at the train station so he can visit his grandma in Weirdville. It’s a cold winter evening, so when his usual train is cancelled at the last second, Charlie wishes he’d stayed home.
An hour later, shivering from the cold, he climbs onboard the next train to Weirdville, even though he’d rather not. It looks like something straight out of the nineteenth century, as if it used a time machine to arrive at the station.
His shivering doesn’t stop, for soon after Charlie boards, he realizes just how right he was to be wary of this strange train. Something is seriously wrong with all the people onboard. If only he could figure out what was going on. If only he could get off the train.

Hot Sinatra, by Axel Howerton. (Still 0.99?)

"The characters in this fast-paced novel, both male and female, are larger-than-life. Drawn with bold brush strokes, these characters leap from the pages as their lives intertwine during the search for the ‘Hot Sinatra’, a record that supposedly doesn’t exist. But if it doesn’t, why are many of the characters ready to kill to get their hands on it? In places, I laughed so hard my sides ached, yet the undertones of menace always lurked just beneath the surface as first one gang member then another takes out his frustrations on Moss in the relentless pursuit of a rare piece of vinyl." -- Amazon Reviewer


Hot Sinatra by Axel Howerton

FINALIST: 2014 Arthur Ellis Award - Best First Novel
Evolved Publishing presents an edgy, noir mystery with a cast of characters to keep you engrossed from first page to last. [DRM-Free]

[Noir Mystery, Hard-Boiled Detective, Crime]

Moss Cole is a private detective, the kind you thought only existed in old movies and afternoon reruns. He's smart, talented, sometimes even charming. You'd think he could find a better gig than carrying on his grandfather's legacy as a 'Private Dick.'
Cole is out of money, out of ideas, and out of his league. That's why he's stuck looking for a stolen Sinatra record... a record that may be just a figment of an old man's imagination.
Of course, if that were true, Moss wouldn't have so many people busting down his door.
A vivacious redhead, a foul-mouthed Irish rock star, and a whip-smart little girl only complicate the job, when all Cole wants is a good cup of coffee and some Hot Sinatra.
If only he can stay alive--and in one piece--long enough to find it.

Forgive Me, Alex (Tony Hooper Book 1), by Lane Diamond. (Still 0.99?)

"Forgive Me, Alex is a deeply emotional spellbinding psychological thriller. This story affords us a look into the mind of a serial killer and the tremendous strength of writing in this book makes that a terrifying experience. The writing is exceptional in that it propelled me into the story and into the minds of the main characters as well as keeping me totally fixated on the story. The main characters of Tony and Mitchell are painted with such fine precision and depth I could almost feel their presence while reading. I highly recommend this for its powerful and gripping story line. You will be held in a spell that will keep you wanting more and find yourself totally drawn in." -- Amazon Reviewer


WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Summer 2014 - Best Book in the Category of THRILLER

"This book gave me the creeps and I could not put it down." ~ S.D. Ford

Forgive Me, Alex by Lane Diamond

Evolved Publishing presents an intimate look inside the mind of a killer, and of the man determined to end that killer, in the first of the Tony Hooper novels. [DRM-Free]

[Suspense Thriller, Crime Thriller, Serial Killer, Vigilante Justice, Psychological]

Two men, two methods, two motivations......... one darkness.
~~~~~
Tony Hooper stands in shadow across the street, one amongst many in the crowd of curiosity-hounds gathered to watch a monster's release. Seventeen years after Mitchell Norton, "the devil," terrorized Algonquin, Illinois on a spree of kidnapping, torture and murder, the authorities release the butcher from psychiatric prison.
Tony longs to charge across the street to destroy Norton--no remorse--as if stepping on a cockroach. Only sheer force of will prevents his doing so.
"The devil" walks the world again. What shall Tony do about it? Aye, what indeed.
After all, this is what Tony does. It's who he is. The devil himself long ago made Tony into this hunter of monsters. What a sweet twist of fate this is, that he may still, finally, administer justice.
~~~~~
Will FBI Special Agent Linda Monroe stop him? She owes him her life, so how can she possibly put an end to his?
Tony Hooper and Mitchell Norton battle for supremacy, with law enforcement always a step away, in this story of justice and vengeance, evil and redemption, fear and courage, love and loss.

Along Came a Wolf (The Yellow Hoods, #1): Steampunk meets Fairy Tale, by Adam Dreece. (Still 0.99?)

"Along Came a Wolf is a wonderful adventure story about Tee and her friends, who find themselves in danger and eventually become heroes. The characters throughout this book are described very well, especially their emotions and motivations. Adam did a fantastic job of re-inventing the story of Little Red Riding Hood in a new, creative way. I would highly recommend this book, especially for those who want to find a book to read with their kids. I can't wait for the sequel!" -- Amazon Reviewer

-- Holiday pricing, 99c reduced from 3.99 --
A wave of dizziness washed over twelve-year-old Tee as she starred down the barrel of the flintlock pistol. “Not feeling so brave now,” said the agent with a dangerous smirk. Someone was convinced her grandfather, the brilliant inventor Nikolas Klaus, had plans for the world’s first steam engine, and the agent was there to collect them. Tee knew nothing of the plans, and even less about her family’s ties to a secret society called the Tub.

Welcome to an 1800s-esque world where our fairy tales and rhymes are their real events and people. Book 1 - Along Came a Wolf is the seemingly innocent beginning to The Yellow Hoods. Like Harry Potter, the series intensifies as it goes.

The Yellow Hoods books 1 & 2 were finalists for Book of the Year in Teen/Young Adult and Fantasy - Independent Authors Network's 2015.
