The Seekers: The Children of Darkness (Dystopian Sci-Fi - Book 1), by David Litwack. (Still 0.99?)

"Litwack's writing is fresh, and Nathaniel, Orah and Thomas come to life in your imagination as you flip (or click) the pages of this book. That's not to say that the other characters are not well fleshed out as well - they are. You feel for the painful history between Nathaniel's father and Orah's mother, and at times you are even drawn to understand the arch vicar, who seeks the keep for reasons of his own.

The Children of Darkness by David Litwack

Evolved Publishing presents the first book in the new dystopian series The Seekers. [DRM-Free]

[Dystopian, Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic, Religion]

“But what are we without dreams?”
A thousand years ago the Darkness came—a terrible time of violence, fear, and social collapse when technology ran rampant. But the vicars of the Temple of Light brought peace, ushering in an era of blessed simplicity. For ten centuries they have kept the madness at bay with “temple magic,” and by eliminating forever the rush of progress that nearly caused the destruction of everything.
Childhood friends, Orah and Nathaniel, have always lived in the tiny village of Little Pond, longing for more from life but unwilling to challenge the rigid status quo. When their friend Thomas returns from the Temple after his “teaching”—the secret coming-of-age ritual that binds young men and women eternally to the Light—they barely recognize the broken and brooding young man the boy has become. Then when Orah is summoned as well, Nathaniel follows in a foolhardy attempt to save her.
In the prisons of Temple City, they discover a terrible secret that launches the three on a journey to find the forbidden keep, placing their lives in jeopardy, for a truth from the past awaits that threatens the foundation of the Temple. If they reveal that truth, they might once again release the potential of their people.
Yet they would also incur the Temple’s wrath as it is written: “If there comes among you a prophet saying, ‘Let us return to the darkness,’ you shall stone him, because he has sought to thrust you away from the Light.”
Be sure to read the second book in this series, The Stuff of Stars, due to release November 30, 2015. And don't miss David's multiple award-winning speculative literary saga, The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky

In the Eyes of Madness (Declan Peters Chronicles Book 1), by Michael Pang. (Still 1.99?)

"Litwack's writing is fresh, and Nathaniel, Orah and Thomas come to life in your imagination as you flip (or click) the pages of this book. That's not to say that the other characters are not well fleshed out as well - they are. You feel for the painful history between Nathaniel's father and Orah's mother, and at times you are even drawn to understand the arch vicar, who seeks the keep for reasons of his own." -- Amazon Reviewer

2016 Edition
A near tragic incident at the hands of his psychotic mother left Declan Peters alone and with so many questions.

Years later, Declan is determined to find a way to be closer to his mother and takes a job at the institution where she's being held. That fateful decision will be the impetus for a chain of events so terrifying that Declan will question his own grasp on reality.

What he finds will be more horrifying than anything he's ever experienced and more dangerous than anything he's yet known. In a place, rife with demonic possession and sadistic beings, will Declan finally be able to find the answers he's longed for before its too late or will he succumb to the evil forces that inhabit the institution and all who live there?

The Traveller, by Garrett Addison. (Still 0.99?)

"The story takes a sudden turn and you have to hang on tight as the book races toward an end that is surprising, a relief from all the problems and the nerves. I loved how the character finally stood up for him and left his shyness behind. I think everyone who works in that environment would react the same way he did. I especially loved the book spoke the truth about life and what sacrifices you have to do for a job. Thank you Garret Addison for the opportunity of reading your book. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Award winning, unique, roller-coaster of a story!



Sometimes to get the measure of your life you just need a break from being yourself.



Enter the world of an unnamed family man struggling in his pursuit of a work/life balance. Too much travel at the whims of his tyrannical boss, known variously as Stalin and ‘the Anti-Christ’, has left him failing at work and at home, but after his wife prophetically warns that his next trip will be different, he is suddenly a world apart from his usual self. Confident, capable and unafraid of his manager, opportunities abound as he embraces his altered state away from home.

What begins as a quest to reclaim his career and satisfy his ego soon descends into the pursuit for revenge on his boss. With nothing but success in his wake and seemingly limitless potential at his disposal, it’s only fitting when he is coerced to work with his nemesis in a remote corner of the world. It’s more than just a chance to get even after years of abuse, more than the opportunity for a confrontation; a final solution to what he sees as the bane of his life is on offer. What could possibly go wrong when he’s in his prime? Succeed or fail, either way this trip will be the making of him or the end of him.

Sometimes to get the measure of your life you just need a break from being yourself... because nothing lasts forever.

From the Author


Brace yourself for a wild ride through the eyes of a struggling professional who discovers the upside and downside of revenge on his domineering boss when his life suddenly seems to fall into place.

Secrets and Sensibilities: A Regency Romance Mystery (The Lady Emily Capers Book 1), by Regina Scott. (Still free?)

"This starts the series of mystery, intrigue and romance that continues in the books that follow. The four young women; Emily Southwell, Priscilla Tate, Daphne and Ariadne Courdebas, continue solving more mysteries. I really enjoyed this story. It brings out the emotions for the characters...such as despising one or two of them and keeps the reader guessing who the villain could be. " -- Amazon Reviewer

When art instructor Hannah Alexander agrees to accompany four of her students on a country house visit before Easter, she never dreams of entering into a dalliance with the owner David Tenant, the handsome new Earl of Brentfield. But one moment in his company and she’s in danger of losing her heart. There are secrets aplenty at Brentfield, enough to challenge any lady’s sensibilities, even those of Hannah’s protégé, Lady Emily Southwell. As events unfold at Brentfield, Hannah quickly learns that loving David comes at a price, to her future plans of being a portrait painter, to her position as a teacher, and to her very life.

This clean romance with a touch of mystery was previously published by Zebra as A Dangerous Dalliance.

Five Stars!” I enjoyed this enchanting romantic suspense tale which was full of twists and turns throughout. I found this novel hard to put down and was up into the wee hours of the morning reading.” – Affaire de Coeur

“I loved this book. The Colonial Upstart of an earl paired with a lovely art teacher is a brilliant stroke and the writing matches her plot . . . . This is a page turner, and I defy a reader to put the book down until finished.” – Noted Regency author Emily Hendrickson

“Regina Scott’s irresistible characters will win your heart.” – Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author, on Regina Scott’s Starstruck
