After The Ending (The Ending Series, #1), by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue

"This book had it all, mystery, excitement, sorrow, emotion, happiness, and hope. I cannot wait for the next book!" --Cynthia Shepp, Cynthia Shepp Book Reviews & Editing 

"This book encompasses everything from adventure to romance and from lonesome fear to a feeling of togetherness and safety. After the Ending is a fascinating apocalyptic tale of a possible end to the world as we know it...Fairleigh and Pogue created such a frightfully amazing read." --Danielle Schneider, Ladybug Literature

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series, The Ending.
On sale for $ .99 for a limited time in celebration of the release of the sequel, Into The Fire.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, "they" thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family...they're all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them--with the rest of the world--but I didn't. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I'd ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O'Connor, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We've all had to start over. I've been stripped of my home, my dreams...all that is me. I'm someone else now--broken and changed. Other survivors' memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won't let them consume me. I can't. My name is Zoe Cartwright, and I survived The Ending.

We've been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing--we'll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we're strong...we're survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

This book contains some adult content and language.

Meet the Author

Lindsey Fairleigh lives her life with one foot in a book--as long as that book transports her to a magical world or bends the rules of science. Her novels, from post-apocalyptic to time travel and historical fantasy, always offer up a hearty dose of unreality, along with plenty of adventure and romance. When she's not working on her next novel, Lindsey spends her time reading and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. She lives in the Napa Valley with her loving husband and confused cats.



Lindsey Pogue has always been a little creative. As a child she established a bug hospital on her elementary school soccer field, compiled books of collages as a teenager, and as an adult, expresses herself through writing. Her novels are inspired by her observations of the world around her--whether she's traveling, people watching, or hiking. When not plotting her next story line or dreaming up new, brooding characters, Lindsey's wrapped in blankets watching her favorite action flicks or going on road trips with her own leading man.

Meet the Author

Award-winning author Kim Law wrote her first story, "The Gigantic Talking Raisin," in elementary school. Although it was never published, it was enough to whet her appetite for a career in writing. First, however, she would try her hand at a few other passions: baton twirling, softball, and music, to name a few. Voted "Bookworm" and "Most Likely to Succeed" in high school, she went on to earn a college degree in mathematics.

Law spent years working as a computer programmer and raising her son, and she now devotes her time and energy to writing romance novels (none of which feature talking raisins).

She is a Romance Writers of America's RITA® finalist, a past winner of the RWA's Golden Heart® Award, and currently serves as president for her local RWA chapter. Her books can best be described as a light-hearted mix taking her readers on a sexy, fun, and emotional ride. A native of Kentucky, she now lives with her husband and an assortment of animals in her Middle Tennessee home.

All Through the Night, by Connie Brockway. (Still 0.99?)

"[Connie Brockway's] work brims with warmth, wit, sensuality, and intelligence." —Amanda Quick

"Connie Brockway's powerful characters grab you by the heartstrings and pull you into their world, their hearts, their love!" —Betina Krahn

"Connie Brockway's work is an absolute delight!" —Catherine Anderson, author of Annie's Song

"Ms. Brockway [is] among the finest writers of the genre." —Pen & Mouse

A woman compelled. A man obsessed. A love that defies king and country.
In the glittering world of Regency England, Anne Wilder plays a dangerous game. A widowed lady by day, by night she becomes a masked thief preying on society's elite. She roves high above London's black rooftops, compelled by phantoms from her past to take ever greater risks. Until her restless spirit led her into Colonel Jack Seward's trap...where seduction may be her only way out.
She'd played him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunts for the thief, his heart falls captive to a self-possessed widow. Torn between illicit passion and tender love, Jack is duty-bound to capture the audacious criminal, even if it means ripping society apart to do so. Now, he stalked her through the ton, never realizing the lovely widow who captured his heart was the same woman who roused his most violent passions.

The Snowflake Inn, by Samantha Chase. (Still 0.99?)

"Pure romance! Sweet, sexy, sassy, snowy, pure Samantha Chase! Take your handsome marine with a bad attitude give him and amaizing woman to cheer him up, throw in a romantic setting and good friends and you have "The Snowflake Inn." Samantha is a wonderfully talented author. I laughed, I cried and had that warm fuzzy feeling in the end! Loved it. Love Samantha." -- Amazon reviewer

A home for the holidays…

Grace thought she had finally found a place to belong. Coming off of ten years of tragedy and disappointments, her arrival at The Snowflake Inn finally gives her a reason to have hope for her future and the possibility of her forever-home. Until one man arrives with the power to take it all away.

Versus NOT wanting to be home for the holidays…

Riley’s world has been turned upside down. He’s back at the one place that he never wanted to return to and it looks like he may be staying longer than he had planned. Taking over The Snowflake Inn was never his dream, it was his family’s dream for him, and all Riley wants to do is cut his losses and leave. But one fiery red-head has him rethinking everything he had planned.

Both Grace and Riley had very different plans for their time at The Snowflake Inn but with the magic of Christmas all around them, and an attraction that they can’t seem to ignore, this could be the perfect time and place for everyone’s dream to come true.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, by James Thurber. (Still 0.99?)

Remember this one? James Thurber's classic short story was required reading back in my high school days. Read (or re-read) the simple story that inspired the movie in theaters now.

"The short storiness of James Thurber's brilliantly lit moment in time is truly wonderful. Since it was written in 1939, to highlight the wispy nature of one man's substance along Main Street, America, the story is meant to be here one moment, then gone. In many ways, the fact that it's "too short" is sort of the point. Many thanks to James Thurber's daughter, Rosemary, for allowing this story to become an ebook. Presumably the timing relates to Hollywood once again (first with Danny Kaye, this time with Ben Stiller) making a full-length movie out of a short story moment. I think that's fine, too. Many moviegoers will search around on their Kindle for this story to experience the original in its original form. Light and delightful." -- Amazon reviewer

American humorist James Thurber’s classic short story is about a man who escapes the tedium of his mundane life by retreating into his vivid imagination. This e-book features the original story, a selection of Thurber drawings and a new introduction by Rosemary A. Thurber, the author’s daughter.
