Forever Road
By Catie Rhodes
$3.99 at Amazon

My name’s Peri Jean Mace, and I’ve seen ghosts ever since I can remember. Don’t get too excited. Seeing across the veil branded me as a loony during my growing up years, and I learned to keep my yap shut about it.

Now I’m not sure I can anymore.

See, my cousin up and got herself killed the very same day I promised her a favor.  Now she’s back in spirit form and determined to make me pay. If I don’t solve her murder, she’s going to haunt me forever. Talk about the debt collector from hell.

That’s not my only problem. An obnoxiously hot cop wants to arrest my best friend for the murder.  My bigmouthed archenemy holds a clue to the killer’s identity. And there’s this mean—and ugly—woman who wants to beat me up.

None of this can turn out good.

By Meredith Bond

Tatiana Ashurst has a secret – one that she cannot afford to be known to Georgian English society. But Kit Vallentyn discovers her hidden ability to wield infinitely powerful magic… and saves her from inadvertently revealing it to everyone. Tatiana knows it is impossible for her to marry him. But how can she help herself from becoming fascinated by this handsome man, who seems to extend a spell over her more powerful than any she can conjure?

Kit is out for a wife. His instinct, however, is to go through the mere motions of searching, just to please his ambitious father who wants a big dowry from the marriage. But the one woman who he can’t get out of his mind is the twin sister of the one his father wants him to marry – the one who is plain, penniless, ineligible… and enchanting in more ways than one.

For Kit and Tatiana to weather the storm of their desires, they have to peel away the layers of all of their secrets, to discover the simple truth of their love.

Tales from the Mist will take you on a journey into the dark world of the paranormal. These twelve stories vary in their degree of horror, yet all reach across the boundaries of their genres into the chilling realms of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages.

Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Mutated: “Tales From The Mist is one of those rare anthologies that gets it right from the first story to the last. It’s a magnificent feast of horror from some of the most assured voices working today. From cold-blooded tales of revenge to Faustian bargains to terrifying journeys into the dark corners of our world, these stories will make the shivers climb your back.”
From TW Brown, author of Dead: The Ugly Beginning: “To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror.”

As the world changes and chaos brews, her fate becomes linked with the Valthreans, a group of immortals who must learn to face a deadly enemy that threatens their place in the human world. But all the while, there is one thing she wants more than any other–to get back her man.

When she finally finds her prize, her worst nightmares are far from over and the toughest battle is yet to begin. Will love win the war in the end?

Though the moments between Justine and Xavier are tense, it’s evident the flame of attraction between them still burns hot. And just as she begins to hope and dream about being with the only man who ever stirred her heart, body and soul, Justine’s life is thrown into chaos. Her daughter discovers Justine’s betrayal and Xavier’s soon-to-be ex-wife wants him back.

This time around, in her quest for love, Justine might not only lose her deepest desire, but everything she holds dear.

Up Close and Personal—a Second-Chances sweet romance
from Grantitude Press, where every ebook includes a gift
By Janet Wellington
$2.99 at Amazon 

KSUN reporter Angie Fletcher is definitely hiding something, and Jason Macdonald is determined to find out exactly what it is while he keeps his own secrets under wraps.

Angie Fletcher’s life is right on track—she has her dream job as an up and coming TV reporter at San Diego’s KSUN, plus the perfect fiancé who understands her and her career goals. With a wedding to plan and her former farmer’s daughter past to keep hidden, the last thing she needs is her new assignment covering Green Zone’s community garden project. She’ll need to grit her teeth and just get through it…but when she meets long-haired, devastatingly handsome and mysterious Jason Macdonald, she soon finds herself taunted and tempted.

For Jason Macdonald, Green Zone is a perfect fit—and the polar opposite of his former, fast-paced 24/7 work schedule. When he learns the new KSUN reporter is resisting covering his new business, he’s ready to set her straight. When they meet, all sorts of sparks fly. She’s everything he expects—type-A all the way…but he also suspects she’s hiding something. When she lets her guard down, he sees a glimpse of a different Angie. But what is she hiding…and why does he care so much?

The past is a funny thing. We think we can run from it, hide it, even change it in the eyes of others. But, with hard work we don’t have to be trapped by it, and maybe, just maybe, it’s there to teach us. As their attraction builds and they are forced to work together, will Angie and Jason each face their pasts in order to open up their hearts to an unexpected future?

$2.99 at AmazonB&NSmashwords 

In the year 2057, in a post-apocalyptic world where a polar shift threatens the survivors of a widespread pandemic with extinction, sixteen-year-old genetically enhanced Lily Carmichael has more immediate problems. Her uncle is dying of cancer and her healing abilities are ineffective against the blood ties that bind them. In order to find a cure, Lily must leave the protection of her quiet town and journey to the trading city of Albany, all while avoiding the Industry, an agency that would like nothing better than to study and exploit her abilities.

Seventeen-year-old Will Callahan has been searching for his father since severe storms blasted through the Midwest, killing his mother and sister. When he learns that his father may be in the city, he catches a ride with Lily, a girl who has come to his rescue more than once. As the two embark on a dangerous journey, the tension between them grows. But the secrets Will’s keeping could put Lily in far more danger than traveling to the city with him, and if he was any kind of man, he would have told her to run the minute she found him.

Welcome to a Reader’s Paradise!

So many of us believe in the adage:  You get what you pay for..  That is true, but not always.  A recent report from Digital Book World reveals that the average price for a top-25 bestselling book has fallen considerably, dropping from a high in October of $11.37 to $8.23.  What’s that have to do with you?  Everything!  It’s never been a better time to be a reader.  More people are writing books giving you, the reader, more choices, and since the prices are coming down, it means you get more bang for your book-buying buck.  It’s a veritable reader’s paradise.   And speaking of paradise, this is the last day to snag some great read from those authors who hang out at the Beach Book Blast site as well as being the last day to register to win the spectacular prizes they are giving away.
