BLOG POST ➣ Today's Featured .99¢ Kindle Book Is Out ➣ Missing Mona: A Tommy Cuda Mystery @klinglerbooks

Foreword Reviews 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist
2016 New York Book Festival - Runner Up


"Klingler presents his craftiest yarn to date, summoning the pulpy spirits of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The setting of Chicago rattles from the page in lines such as, 'The buildings held noise and exhaust fumes around me like a torture chamber.'" --Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Recommended List)

Tommy has boomeranged back to his parents residence and a dead-end job after too many years in college. As he looks squarely at his next decade of life, his smartphone convinces him the time is ripe for a change. A gift from his grandfather provides the means, so he embarks on the path of blues artists and beatniks before him--and hits the road. 

He immediately meets a damsel in hitchhiking distress who says her name is Mona. Her presence persuades him that the bright lights and dark clubs of Chicago might be his kind of town. So on a summer Saturday night they settle into a fancy hotel overlooking the beaches of Lake Michigan.

On Sunday...Mona disappears.

But she leaves behind more than a sweet memory that involves Tommy in a brand new cash flow problem he never imagined. While trying to sort out how to stay on the right side of the law and get back on the road, he meets a young criminologist who helps him, a DJ who doesn't, and a librarian who teaches him about the city, women, and the art of the makeover. After truth and lies are stirred like a blue martini, being assaulted by a pink monkey, and witnessing a drive-by shooting that drowns a Ferrari--Tommy is desperate to help Mona.

If he can find her.

"A private investigator, a mysterious hitchhiker, dancers, gangsters, a mysterious bag that holds the unthinkable and twists and turns that will have the reader unable to put it down, Missing Mona by Joe Klingler has it all."--San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 stars)

BLOG POST ➣ Today's Featured .99¢ Kindle Book Is Out ➣Luminescence @ashlynmathews

"From midnight to sunrise, you're mine in a different manner. During the day, we're two people connected by horrific events."

A dangerous game of seduction...

She could be the devil disguised as an angel. But to get the answers to solving two very important and personal cold cases, FBI agent Nick Campion is willing to sleep with the enemy. Yeah, call the situation like it is--improper, blurring the lines . . . inching closer toward a supernatural world he's not prepared for. No worries though. He's already given up his career to tail the woman he despises, a woman as cold as the month she was named after. There's nothing more for him to lose, except for his heart and soul.

A destiny they can't deny...

Determined to save her kind from the brink of extinction, demon hunter December Raine agrees to get real personal with the human ex-special agent who could be the answer to unlocking her ability to grant supernatural powers to her kind's descendants. Unable to control her feelings when around him, she shows him the supernatural side of her, further putting his life in danger from her kind. When she offers an unconventional and far-out permanent arrangement that can save his life, will he accept or reject her? She has everything to lose, including her heart and soul.

New BLOG POST > #99c #Kindle #Book >> Labor Pains @C_A_Huggins

Labor Pains
By C.A. Huggins

Attaining the American Dream One Lie at a Time.


Kevin Taylor is a woefully mediocre man who finds himself at a crossroads in his mid-30's. Everyday his alarm clock wakes him up for the cold realization that he has to go to a job that he downright loathes. His cubicle is his own private cell for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

All of his efforts to get a promotion or get another job over the past 10 years have been thwarted by his indifference towards hard work and overall incompetence. 

He feels destined to be stuck in the glut of the lower middle-class, living from check to check, never having the ability to do the things he wants to do, and going to a passionless job he hates in order to maintain his mediocre fate until he decides to eliminate his competition using a strategy of office terrorism leads him into a string of hysterical occurrences as he quests to get what he thinks he rightfully deserves.

Labor Pains is a wry and absurdly comical look at the modern employee caught in the endless cycle of consumerism where it is impossible to differentiate your wants versus your needs.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Work and the working place environment is a slippery subject matter. C.A. Huggins' humorist approach to this rarely discussed topic is an original and appropriate way to deal with it. It's probably impossible for people to find a job that they would be passionate about all the time. There are many people who aren't happy about their jobs. People, who like Kevin, work out of fear, live from paycheck to paycheck and can actually relate to his situation. ...This dark comedy with some criminal action thrown in brings a lot of difficult issues up to the surface." - Portland Book Review

"While Labor Pains is irreverently funny, it also contains pearls of insight about the dichotomy of work. It's a glorious celebration of half-ass-ism and mediocrity, terrific for readers who recognize the ridiculousness of the struggle to get ahead and appreciate the irony of having to work harder to buy more things that one has to work harder to maintain." - San Francisco Book Review

"This book is chock-full of 'that's so wrong' kind of humor, the kind you'll want to read aloud to your spouse and get them to laugh with you."- Portland Book Review

BLOG POST Today's Featured .99¢ Kindle Book Is Out >> Chameleon in a Mirror: A Time Travel Novel @Ruth_Nestvold

"Couldn't put it down"; "Excellent read"; "10 out of 10 stars!"

Meeting Aphra Behn is Billie's wish come true -- and now she's trapped in the 17th century!

Billie Armstrong has long wanted to give Aphra Behn, the first professional woman writer in English, the prominence she deserves. But when Billie accidentally activates the magical properties of a baroque mirror, propelling herself into the seventeenth century, she gets more than she bargained for. What develops is an unwilling masquerade, a tale of license, love and literature, as Billie does her best to survive in a strange era and ensure Aphra’s literary survival in the future.

What readers are saying:

"There is nothing better than when a time travel story is paired with real characters from the past and an excellent writer." Review by LA Howell

"Ruth Nestvold colors these pages with some of the more irresistible word painting now being written. The manner in which she weaves this terrific tale will hold the readers' attention from page one. She entertains, pokes our imagination, challenges our intellect, and in all - provides a first class novel." Review by Grady Harp, Top 100 Amazon reviewer.

My Life As I Knew It
By Peri June

Even the people closest to you can be monsters.

It happened like this: Screaming...A knife...Blood.

Maggie Martin is plagued by nightmares.
This hasn't always been the case. She used to be your typical 17-year-old, worrying about boyfriends and college applications.
Until, one night, when she wakes up to the sound of screaming and witnesses the unthinkable. Now she's scrambling to put the pieces of her life back together, which is not as easy as everyone would like her to believe.
Especially when she's struggling just to BREATHE.

Sam is intrigued by the quiet, new girl from the moment he lays eyes on her. Out of sheer boredom, he decides to include her in his circle of friends, then he's surprised by how much he starts to care about her.
Sam doesn't understand why Maggie won't let him get close to her...until he stumbles across her secret.

The question remains, who can she trust in a sea of strangers?

Stay
By Ashlyn Mathews

My heart matters. I don't want a broken heart. The whole of me is already broken.

After losing pieces of my memory in a brutal assault, I know better than to get involved with the new guy in the building. Brooks Hunter is dangerously sexy with his piercing gaze and ripped body beneath his well-fitted suit.

He can have any woman, yet he wants me. I don't deny our instant spark, but I can't understand his attraction. I'm plain and skinny, wear ugly owl glasses and my monotone black hair is piled high on top of my head.

"Invite me in. Otherwise, I can't stay."

He says we know one another. I swear I've never met him. A woman can't forget his type of sexy--mouthwatering and panty-melting hot. But his eyes are familiar, and I can't shake the suspicion he had something to do with my assault.

When he reveals the unbelievable truth behind the story of how we're connected, he rocks the very foundation of my safe world. Will I demand he takes a much-deserved hike? Or will I ask him... to stay?

“Katerina—I need some help. Be a good girl and come over here and I’ll make it worth your while.”

It’s an offer NYC college student Katerina Mills should refuse. But how can she?

A desperate situation....

After ditching her cheating lover (and boss), she’s stuck in dead end temp jobs. Her dad just ditched her mom and his promise to pay Kat's college tuition bill.

She has two weeks to come up with $14,000 or she's out of her apartment, out of school, and out of luck.

A dangerous world....

Katerina falls into a job as a "fixer” for New York City's wealthy and privileged men. They have problems they need “fixed,” quick and on the QT, and they’re willing to pay.

The rules are simple: collect the money, use your contacts, fix the problem.

Kat's first job is easy: tail a shopaholic socialite wife. But who’s tailing Kat?

Kat’s second job is not so easy: steal a VHS tape hidden in an antique chest. She can’t do it alone. To be a thief, she needs a thief: handsome, reclusive Alexander Winter to be exact.

Kat soon learns the real rules for a fixer: there are no rules, there are no refunds. Get in. Get results. Get gone.

As every step brings her closer to her goal and closer to danger, there’s one rule left for Katerina Mills to learn: once you’re in, there’s no getting out.

BLOG POST TODAY'S FEATURED .99¢ KINDLE BOOK IS OUT >> Hammond Flux, Life After Flesh @alankillip

"Fight Club meets White Noise - a mindboggling display of talent in a debut novel" - Mark Brantingham, Goodreads


A dangerous innovation leads to mischief, then mayhem, then murder and the brink of Doomsday: Hammond Hinkley has unlocked the secrets of the human soul by recreating the means by which the brain creates consciousness. He hopes that his invention will cure the world's ills and win him fame and adulation, but to fund his research he has to make a deal with a sinister organisation that thrives on conflict. Under pressure from his paymasters he uploads the contents of his own brain to the supercomputer in his lab, and spawns Hammond Flux, being that dwells in a dreamlike simulation. 


Isolated in a virtual world designed to pander to his massive ego, Hammond Flux grows into a more sinister version of Hinkley, and soon he works out how to make his presence felt in the real world. Hinkley watches in horror has his alter ego moves from playful pranks to physical violence, and he is forced to confront the monster he has created before the world slips into the abyss.


This is a portrait of a soul immersed in the ultimate digital echo chamber, a world populated by demons and desires whose sole purpose is to gratify the ego. Hammond's story is poignant, funny and tragic, but the resilience of his essential humanity offers the possibility of redemption.

All Sam wants is to serve out his time as a guardian angel so that he can return as a human. But his sentence becomes more complicated when he finds himself falling in love with Angeline, his current assignment.

The rules of angels specify that he may not interfere with the course of her life, which naturally includes her dating choices. When Angeline begins surf lessons at the same beach where Sam is assigned to work as a lifeguard, a connection forms between them and the rules of angels collide with the laws of attraction.

Sam finds it even harder to keep his distance when he discovers Angeline’s surf instructor hides a dangerous secret. With Angeline’s life in jeopardy, the lines between his role as a lifeguard and that of guardian angel become blurred. 

Sam’s choices will redefine his role as a guardian angel to Angeline and force him to contemplate what will become of their love if he is sent away. Whether they find their way back to each other is a question written in the heavens.
