-----
Does your toaster oven make you feel shamefully inadequate with his lofty ideals and Jeffersonian views of the world?

Is the letter Q the wrong shade of yellow?

Are you frequently bothered by abstract images and geometric shapes falling from the sky?

If so, this book can help.

The Toaster Oven Mocks Me is a humorous memoir that chronicles Steve’s discovery, concealment, and eventual acceptance of synesthesia; a peculiar condition where one sense is stimulated, and two senses respond.

It’s like a “buy one, get one free” for your senses!

But wait, there’s more!

Join Steve on his journey and experience the world as he does:

Every letter and every number that you see, taking on its own distinct color.
Visualizing dates in history and actually seeing a floating, holographic timeline just inches from your nose.
And best of all, sensing personality from inanimate objects!

But that’s not all!

Watch as our charismatic hero conceals his condition for decades using misdirection, clever tactics, and a sense of humor that only a mother could love.

Order now and we’ll throw in a mental breakdown at no extra charge!

You read that right!

You’ll witness the inevitable outcome of hiding one’s individuality for over four decades; and you’ll occupy a front row seat as Steve finally figures out that uniqueness is something to be celebrated.

Now how much would you pay?

That’s a brain condition and a mental collapse, for one low price!

Hello. Welcome to my author page. Yeah, I know. You've read one sentence and you're already bored. Join the club. I wrote this bio at 3 AM in a Taco Bell parking lot. You probably reached my author page by accident anyway. No problem. Just type "Tina Fey" into the SEARCH box and you'll be whisked away to someone with talent. Still here? Ok. Here's all you need to know about my writing career: With no actual talent to fall back on, I was left with two career choices- becoming a writer or going in to politics. I chose the one least likely to bring me into contact with Sarah Palin.

The Demon Stone, by Christopher Datta. (Still 0.99?)

"The Demon Stone is a wonderfully written supernatural thriller that explores the struggle between good and evil using richly developed characters that the reader follows from war-ravaged Africa to Northern Minnesota. Demon Stone is a spellbinding suspense novel that’s hard to put down – a must read!" -- Amazon Reviewer


“Don’t read this one before you go to bed. And if you do, leave the lights on.”—Hill Rag Magazine

The Demon Stone is a powerful supernatural thriller that leads you from the killing fields of Africa to the quiet Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota. In braided narratives, Datta spins a terrifying story about the spiritual forces—both real and supernatural—that incite the basest, bloodiest and most frightening of human behaviors.

When Kevin volunteered to travel to a war-ravaged country in Africa to help out his childhood buddy, Bill, now a physician with Doctors Without Borders, he knew he might face danger. But he could not have envisioned the brief, nightmare encounter that would rob him of his friend, his principles, and quite possibly his sanity. When he returns to his family in the United States, he carries with him not only survivors’ guilt, but, according to a grizzled old juju man in the service of a warlord, a powerful demon.
Liz cannot understand why, precisely, she agreed to go camping with her old college friend Kevin and his sullen teenage daughter, but it was clear that in the wake of his sudden divorce and a horrific family tragedy, Kevin needed someone to lean on. The canoeing trip in the Boundary Waters was supposed to be an escape, an opportunity to bring back the old Kevin. But once in the forests, Kevin’s behavior grows increasingly off-kilter, and Liz feels a growing sense of unease, one that ripens into fear. As the trio glide further into the wilderness, it becomes clear that someone, or something, is stalking them.

"Reading Chris Datta is like riding a rollercoaster. It’s a fast ride filled with twists and turns. His Demon Stone is scary fun. Stephen King, watch your back!"
-Richard Rashke, author of The Killing of Karen Silkwood

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
Bella Online

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.

Avanaux: A Hickory Lace Adventure: (Book 1 of the Prosperine Trilogy), by PJ McDermott. (Still free?)

"Original well thought out intriguing science fiction novel. I wanted to keep reading. The plot was complex but presented itself in a way that did not bog me down and kept me engaged, again no easy feat. Many science fiction authors go on tangents describing the complexities of their worlds. Mr. McDermott has created a complex world but kept it simple. I would highly recommend it." -- Amazon Reviewer
