Dan and Frankie Save the World, by Richard Langridge. (Still 0.99?)

"If you're looking for something funny and that isn't too serious, I urge you to check out Dan and Frankie Save the World. I haven't laughed this much while reading a book in a long time. The two main characters, Dan and Frankie, are hilarious and likable even though they both mess up a lot and are far from perfect. I found myself rooting for them both while still laughing at the mistakes they made and the hijinks they got into.

The topic of an alien invasion isn't something I would normally be interested in but the way the story was written held my interest all the way through. The humor and the two quirky main characters made me totally invested in what was happening." -- Amazon Reviewer

So here's the deal.

That guy you bought the latte from this morning on your way to work? Yeah, turns out he wasn't human. I know, you're surprised. It's okay. That's normal. In fact, chances are the majority of people sitting around you right now aren't human, either. You're probably in danger. You might want to do something about that. Go ahead, get yourself someplace safe. No, I'll wait.

Are you there? Great. Now listen up, cause there's only time to say this once. YOU ARE BEING LIED TO. THEY are everywhere. They're your mailman and your accountant. They're the girl who works the register down at the grocery store. They're your boss and your friends and your parents. They're everyone, and they're EVERYWHERE.

Pretty scary, huh?

But don't worry. You know about them now. You have a chance. You can survive. But you'll have to be quick.

Now, tell me: do you have any salt?

Serious Crimes (Strike a Match Book 1), by Frank Tayell. (Still free?)

"I was unable to put the book down once I started reading it. Mr. Tayell never failed to keep me on the edge as one incident lead to the next. I will see where book two takes me very soon. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Justice in post-apocalyptic Britain.


They called them Artificial Intelligences. Sentient viruses were closer to the truth. They spread throughout the world until every networked circuit was infected. Then they went to war. Millions died in the nuclear holocaust that brought an abrupt end to the AI’s brief reign of terror. Billions more succumbed to radiation, starvation, and disease. But millions survived, and they rebuilt.

Serious Crimes
Twenty years later, a ceremony is being held to mark the first transatlantic broadcast since The Blackout. The Prime Minister of Britain and two of the Presidents of the United States will speak to an audience of nearly ten million people. Not all are celebrating. Crime is on the rise, and power is once again a prize worth murdering for.

Ruth Deering, a new graduate from the police academy, doesn’t care about ancient history or current affairs. She only joined the force to escape the smog-infested city. Those hopes are dashed when she is assigned to the Serious Crimes Unit, commanded by the disgraced Sergeant Mitchell. Her first case seems like a simple murder, but the investigation uncovers a counterfeiting ring and a conspiracy that threatens to destroy their fragile democracy.

A post-apocalyptic thriller set in a world of rationing and ruins, where a democracy struggles not to become a dystopia. The investigation continues in Counterfeit Conspiracy. (77,000 words)

Altered Life (Sam Dyke Investigations Book 1), by Keith Dixon. (Still free?)

"The story has a surprising very early twist and this then really sets the scene for the rest of the tale; so much so I cannot relate it here as it would be a Class 1 Spoiler. But, the combination of A1 narrative and dialogue, the totally believable characters, and the tense situations punctuating the overall plot, make this a great story by a great writer. Keith once won an award for one of his earlier offerings, let us hope he repeats this achievement with - Altered Life. Well done, Keith, here's to your next offering." -- Amazon Reviewer




Altered Life



Making a killing in business is one thing - doing it for real is another.



Private Investigator Sam Dyke turns down a job that would require skills that he doesn't have - patience, computer-literacy, tact. Then he finds that the skills he does have - tenacity, aggression, street-smarts - are exactly the ones he needs for his next case - hunting down a cold-blooded murderer who seems to know what his every step will be.



To solve the case Sam must negotiate with his ex-wife, cement a relationship with a new love, unravel an office-based financial fraud and fight off an arrogant murderer armed only with a pen-knife. Altered Life is fast-paced, bitterly comic and introduces a tough new English private eye who knows what he wants and, usually, how to get it.





"Right out of the gate, this is an amazing novel for first-time author, Keith Dixon." - Ron Peters, POD People.



"If you like private eye stories, you owe it to yourself to check out Keith Dixon's Altered Life. I had a hard time putting it down and I bet you will too. With this book you'll be in on the ground floor of what is sure to be a successful series of 'Sam Dyke' mysteries." - Dan Marvin, The LL Book Review.

My Idols - Journey of a Cricket Crazy, by Pankaj Agrawal. (Still free?)

"I am not a big cricket fan! Started reading this book out of curiosity as the book talks about the cricketing legends. I must say that the reading becomes quite engaging once you read first couple of chapters. The book very artfully touches the important events in Indian cricket and contributions made by Legends in the game of cricket. A must read for cricket fans, and an interesting reading for anyone who has any interest in the game. " -- Amazon Reviewer

India and Indians are crazy for two things. Cricket and Bollywood. So there are only two kinds of people, who have unconditional fan following in India. That is Film actors and Cricket players. There are millions of Indians, who are huge fan of Cricket and cricketers.

The book is all about collection of memoirs of the author in regard with his idols in the game. Book gives inside in to career span of few of the most prolific Indian cricketers in contemporary Cricket and few of greatest in international Cricket.

The career path of them is embedded with most splendid performance of these players and interesting anecdotes (few of them are untold). All in all, a full sketch of these players in a very concise and interesting manner.
