Freddy Fumple and the Mindmonsters, by Vegard Svingen. (Still 0.99?)

"This really is a 'page- turner' for youth and older children. Free, imaginative and without fear, we follow Freddy across physical, impossible and invisible borders. Crazy humor and some very lovable characters make the whole thing constantly entertaining, even when it's on its most serious. Highly recommended! " -- Amazon Reviewer

"Freddy Fumple and the Mindmonsters is most highly recommended. Marvelous!"
- Readers' Favorite (5/5 STAR REVIEW)


Freddy Fumple's world is about to turn upside down, in this nail-biting, thought-bursting, hilarious and spectacular adventure that will enthrall you from beginning to end.

Freddy Fumple is not like most other people. For one, he sees things that others can't see. What is more, he likes to ponder upon a very special question: «How far is infinity?»

When he and the rest of his family move to an old house out in the country, everything is about to change. Soon Freddy is on the verge of discovering a world beyond his wildest dreams. A world that desperately needs his help. An adventurous place where he finally can get an answer to his giant question.

Providing, of course, his neighbor doesn't make stew out of him first.
And that he manages to help the confused ghost which is poltergeisting his new room.
And avoids being devoured by the terrifying mindmonsters.

Bad Elephant Far Stream, by Samuel Hawley. (Still 0.99?)

"This book was very interesting being told from the elephants' point of view. It's hard to believe how cruelly these beautiful beasts are treated to break them into submission. No animal should ever be treated that way! A well researched book. Brought tears to my eyes several times but definitely worth reading! " -- Amazon Reviewer


The story of an elephant's journey through life, told through her own eyes


Bad Elephant Far Stream is an animal story for adults, a novel about the odyssey of a circus elephant, told from her own perspective, through her own eyes. Inspired by the true story of the elephant Topsy, it begins in the forests of Ceylon in the late 1860s with the capture of a baby elephant known to her own kind as Far Stream. She is taken to America chained in a ship, a journey of several months, and sent to the Adam Forepaugh Circus in Philadelphia. There, Far Stream embarks on a new life under the big top, appearing first as “Baby Annie,” then, when she grows bigger, as “Topsy,” part of Forepaugh’s famed elephant dancing quadrille. She crisscrosses North America for thirty years with the circus, experiencing hardships, kidnapping, escapes and adventure. But when she comes to outweigh her keepers by a factor of forty—it’s hard not to hurt somebody. It’s hard not to be “bad.”

A poignant and powerful novel for animal lovers and fans of unusual historical fiction, Bad Elephant Far Stream explores the questions: What is it like to be an elephant captured and trained to perform in the circus? What does such an animal think? What does it feel? What does it yearn for? Bad Elephant Far Stream takes the reader on a voyage of discovery to find out.

Unlucky In Love, by Carmen DeSousa. (Still free?)

"It was a very real and humorous story of a modern woman regrouping after a divorce and managing to find her passion somewhere other than in a man's arms. I really enjoyed it, and I especially like that she starts a review site online. I did that myself. It's quite encouraging for women who've dedicated themselves to their husbands, lost that love and are wondering what to do now. If you like character driven stories with real friendship and honest experiences, I recommend this one. It's like chatting with your best girlfriends." -- Amazon Reviewer

Some lucky women meet the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. Some lucky women focus on a career and make their own happily ever after. And then some women wake up after fifteen years of marriage and discover that their luck just ran out … right into the arms of another woman.

Jana Embers isn’t one to sit back, though. The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she’s thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s truck. After that, she’s not sure what she’ll do … Maybe she’ll adopt a cat.


WARNING: Although there are many adult situations in this novella, if say ... something crazy happened and a famous producer adapted this contemporary women's fiction into a movie, it would have a PG-13 rating. There are no erotic scenes, no graphic violence, and while there are a few allowed-on-TV curse words, there aren't a plethora of gratuitous foul words. Oh, and if you were looking for a cliffhanger, you won't find that here either. But, Unlucky In Love is only part one of Jana's story, and you might want to continue to the next part of her story in Some Lucky Woman, so please proceed at your own risk.

The true moral of this story is that you don't have to be old, aged, and wise to make a difference in the world. You can be young, and you can do big things. Tara proves that with her extraordinary strength and ability to overcome very big obsticles and still fight for good. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Tara goes from fighting off bullies in school to battling shadowy men bent on stealing everything they can, not caring who they hurt or what they destroy. But Tara doesn't have to face them on her own for long. She makes new friends who are just as determined to straighten out the mess clueless adults have created.

Can someone so young really make a difference? The answer comes when Tara learns who she really is . . .
