Great BIG book preview for the holidays!
Robert Stanek: Hi, readers and authors. Welcome to the Great BIG book preview for the holidays!
I'm Robert Stanek, founder of Go Indie (http://www.facebook.com/groups/goindie/) and the creator of Ruin Mist, Magic Lands, and Bugville Critters. Recently, in the Go Indie group on Facebook, I invited authors to post about their books as part of the Great BIG book preview for the holidays! The result follows, including many books from established authors and many books from new voices awaiting discovery.
Daniel Zazitski: If you like scifi, get a print copy of my scifi novel Amderesta The 3rd Republic which is the first book in a nine book series from my Createspace estore. https://www.createspace.com/3457543 It's also available in Kindle, Nook, and Kobo ebook formats as well.
Karl Jones: Shattered 21 x 5* reviews and a 4.3* average for just $3.99/£2.59 "I hated coming to the end ...It was so good, I wanted more!" Murdered teens, incompetent police, vigilante parents.
Stuck in the middle is Donna Harp, the young constable determined to bring an end to the murders tearing her village apart, even if it costs her her job.
You can find out more about me, my writing, and the random stuff I like at my blog http://booksboozeandbanter.blogspot.co.uk/
Jerry Last: Travel to Montevideo, Uruguay and to Chile for The Matador Murders, the fourth novel in the South American Mystery series but perfectly OK as a standalone book, available from Amazon for $2.99 and FREE for Prime members. The book features lots of action and a good whodunit storyline. It could use several more reviews. Do we have a few volunteers?
James Eggebeen: Wizard's Education is the second book in the Apprentice to Master Series. Our young Wizards are out to rescue their mentor. Follow their adventures as they battle the evil Wizard Priests.
Eva Caye: FEALTY, a futuristic romance: Who can you trust with your love? With your friendship? With your life itself? Prince Phillip Sinclair is lucky he can depend on Lord Alex, the best friend a man can have! Learn how Phillip and his brother Crown Prince Zhaiden overcome the paranoid tendencies of their parents Emperor Victor and Empress Felice, to build friendships with Fight Brothers who help them find the ladies of their dreams!
M.j. Kane: Friendships are tested. Love nearly lost….and more than one heart nearly broken. Life. Love. Tragedy. Triumph…..A HEART NOT EASILY BROKEN is NOT your TYPICAL ROMANCE!
Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction, Interracial Romance
5 STAR REVIEWS from Amazon, Goodreads, and B&N readers. Curious as to why?
Check out the REVIEWS, then BUY your copy today! A steal at $3.99 for KINDLE, NOOK, and iBOOK!
Kelly Preston: "On a scale of one to five this book deserves at least a ten because it's just that good! I would love to read more from this author! Highly recommended." Still time to order #Christmasgift for that special someone in your life. http://goo.gl/xuW8H
Real Dogs Don't Whisper: Life lessons from a larger than life dog - and his owner!
Karl Jones: Lauren's Torment, the double bill of Lauren's Nightmare and The Dayment, available together for 25% less than getting the 2 separately.
A night out with friends becomes a nightmare.
When she's attacked following a friend's birthday in town Lauren begins to wonder if she's losing her mind. The things she remembers can't possibly be true, can they?
Sometimes the worst nightmares are those that happen when you're awake.
Lauren's nightmare rapidly becomes her reality as she finds herself stalked by a creature science says doesn't exit. A blood-sucking fiend who wants to make her his companion, a fellow creature of darkness.
Can Lauren retain her humanity, or will the blood lust growing inside her doom her for all eternity?
David D'Aguanno: Who said summer was over? Not when "Beach Bum Brett" is around -- 5-Star review says about this comedy-mystery: "Who needs Sherlock Holmes when you've got the wild & wacky Brett Cornell?"
David A. Sterling: Another 5.0 for "Do As I Say"
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book... Impressive Beginning to a Promising Series, December 9, 2012
By Peter Sciara
There is something here for almost every reader. Whether you like conspiracy books, mystery books, or books with unique twists and turns, you will find it in this book. I enjoyed the pace and detail to the characters that unfolded through the story line.
I really enjoyed reading this book and long for the release of the next in the series. Highly recommended!
Vlad Vaslyn: 4 STARS! ~Fourth Street Review: "Reminiscent of the best of the classic horror writers... Fans of the early works of Stephen King and the later works of Edgar Allan Poe will likely enjoy this. Despite being a horror novella, it is also a black comedy of sorts. Horror and humor is one of my favorite combinations and a difficult one to pull off, but Vaslyn gets it right. It’s well-developed, tightly plotted story... Yorick will most certainly entertain fans of the genre."
Karen Docter: SATIN PLEASURES ~ romantic comedy to slip into your stocking for a cold winter's night *FREE*!! Two days ONLY! Merry Christmas, my friends!
Lisa Bilbrey: Sugarplum Dreams, Book four of the Candy Collection-- Four stories of love, hope, and the spirit of the Holidays http://ow.ly/fZvhY

Keith longs for Javier, body and soul, in a way he has longed for no one else - and he knows that Javier feels the same.

Simon Williams: The kids' story I am writing has taken a dramatic left turn... or rather it seems to be morphing into something quite different- more psychological / ghost story than the original "cautionary superhero tale" I first envisaged. But the river isn't mine to direct, it will take me where it wants.
In the meantime, the FREE story from my forthcoming anthology is still knocking about on my dusty old website: http://www.simonwilliamsauthor.com/read-all-about-it.php
Karen Docter: It's time for Tuesday's NOVEL GEM blog where I usually share a "gem" from my upcoming suspense. Today, however, I'm sharing a gem from my romantic comedy, CATCH THAT SANTA, which is #FREE TODAY and tomorrow, December 18th!! If you haven't had a chance to pick up this cute gem of a novelette, here's your chance! Happy Holidays to all of my fellow writers and readers out there!
Elaine Raco Chase: Two Great reviews were linked to the audio book: "Great dialogue - And it ALL sounds like a conversation you could overhear at any time, in many situations. That technique alone makes the book a worthwhile read - that it is combined and integrated into a tightly written, fast paced and sexy story makes this worth every one of the 5 stars.
The audio book was narrated beautifully, with words clear and pacing easy to follow. I tend to listen at 2.5 speed, I talk fast too, but It wasn't too fast to follow the story.
Whether you are looking for a break from television, or don't mind the other commuters staring at you as you laugh, often, the audiobook is well worth the investment.
