My Story as an American Au Pair in the Loire Valley (French Illusions Book 1), by Linda Kovic-Skow. (Still 2.99?)

"French Illusions is a journey alongside a 21 year old (the author) as she courageously signs up to be an Au Pair for a wealthy family in France in order to learn French to pursue her dream to be an airline stewardess. Confessing her lie that she knew French was just the beginning of huge challenges this young lady took on alone. The author masterfully brings you in with her, allowing the reader to feel her grief, despair, frustrations, reflections, and sweetly bringing you into the world of a young lady falling in love and trying to balance youth with adulthood. A masterful weaving of culture, emotions, and story. A great read!" -- Amazon Reviewer

"This is an engaging read, all the more because it is true." - Patricia Sands, award-winning author of The Promise of Provence.

French Illusions: My Story as an American Au Pair in the Loire Valley, is the first of two books based on the author's diaries from 1979. Twenty-one-year-old Linda Kovic needs to learn a language fast in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a flight attendant, so she contracts to become an au pair for a wealthy French family in the Loire Valley. In order to secure the nanny position, she lies on her application and pretends to speak the language, confident she'll be forgiven once she arrives at her destination. This book captures her real-life story inside and outside the Ch√Ęteau de Montclair, detailing Linda’s challenges and triumphs as she tries to adjust to her new life with the hard-to-please Madame Dubois, her husband and their two incomprehensible children. When Linda attends language classes at a local university, she encounters, Adam, a handsome young student, and her life with the family becomes more complicated, adding fuel to her internal battle for independence. Join Linda on her adventure of discovery and romance in an extraordinary part of the world.

Into the Dark (Dark Universe Book 1), by Jason Halstead. (Still 0.00?)

"Great new series, this is something new that stretches the imagination and leads to a place that didn't exist before. I've been reading books by this author for quite awhile now and have liked the majority of them but this one so far is my favorite, it doesn't seem to be JUST hard core sci-fi but has elements of other genres as well. Personally I cant wait for the next one to come out." -- Amazon Reviewer

Into the Dark opens an amazing new futuristic setting by Jason Halstead called Dark Universe.

Aden Garrett is fresh out of security academy and looking for a little excitement. A little more than walking security at local space station bars and a little less than the job that got him kicked out of the academy.

Meshelle and Janna are Vagnosian sisters that run a small transport and special operations ship, and they're looking to replace a fallen crew member.

Chance brings them together and puts them work for one of the mysterious Kesari merchants who's looking for some expendable assets for a special job. It's a perfect match, except the crew of the Uma, Janna's ship, doesn't agree to being disposed of when the job is done.

What follows is a game of cat and mouse through the galaxy with twists and turns at every solar system. Lost alien civilizations, six limbed insectoid warriors, plasma rifles, and more await. Much, much more…

Keep your eye out for future Dark Universe novels:
Book 1: Into the Dark
Book 2: Out of the Dark
Book 3: Chasing the Dark

Caesar: Escapades in Rome (Historical stories), by A. David Singh. (Still 0.00?)

"It's a triumph. It's not easy to turn historical fact into fiction and at the same time add humor to it. David Singh does all this with finesse .A must read for everyone. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Destiny is a journey, not a finish-line. A warrior designs his destiny with each step along his path.



I have fought pirates on the choppy waters of the Mediterranean Sea. I have wept beside the statue of Alexander, in Hispania. I have risen from defeat at the hands of Pompey, who was once my friend.

On the muddy banks of the Rubicon, I have made a difficult decision for a unique problem—just like you might be facing today.

But guess what? You don’t need a herculean physique to fight the battles of life. And you don’t need a famous father or mountains of sestertii. Just like I didn’t need them in ancient times to blaze a trail for Roman emperors, you don’t need them, even today.

All you need is grit—never letting self-doubt crush your spirit, even in the face of overwhelming odds.

Journey with me as we battle foes on land, on sea—and in life, at times victorious, at others crying in frustration, but always gaining clarity about our destiny, and striving towards it. Along this road, feel free to pick up skills that made me who I am.

Caesar: Escapades in Rome is a historical adventure book whose stories were whispered into the ears of a 21st century scribe—whose name escapes me—by my loyal, though occasionally stubborn scribe, A. Didius Silo.

The scribes have begged me to say that you may consider this book as historical fiction, historical thriller, or historical short reads. The classification sounds strange to me.

This is not a book about Roman history; instead, it is a chronicle of my non-stop adventures through Ancient Rome.
