Deep Into the Game (Gameland Episode 1) by Saul Tanpepper
Genre - Science Fiction (R)
4.8 (6 reviews)
FREE until 28th July 2012
A group of young tech-savvy hackers breaks into Long Island's Gameland, a formerly militarized wasteland that was, for years, abandoned to the Infected Undead before being reclaimed by a government-sponsored company interested in merging virtual reality and survival gaming into a single seamless entertainment package. But while breaking into The Game turns out to be a lot easier than they could ever have imagined, breaking out is one hell of a killer. 

EPISODE 1: Deep Into The Game

Jessie and her gang of game jackers discover a way to break into Gameland, but it requires the assistance of outsider Jake Espinosa. His inclusion raises tensions within the group, particularly between Jessie and her boyfriend, Kelly. After a nearly-fatal accident during preparation, emotions run dangerously high, but it only makes them all the more determined to succeed. What they don't know is that one of them has a secret reason for going, and it doesn't involve any of them returning any time soon. 


Prairie Hill by Fred Burwell
Genre - Contemporary Fiction (PG)
FREE until 28th July 2012
In 1980, a troubled young stranger arrives in Prairie Hill, a small Wisconsin city. Jimmy Lathrop would like nothing better than to go about his business washing dishes at the popular local eatery, the Pullet Surprize. A fresh start. No questions asked. Then he begins moonlighting as the feathered mascot of the local minor league baseball team and meets someone who will change his life.

Jenny Diggles bides her time serving the locals at the Pullet Surprize, struggling to come to terms with her lonely, eccentric mother, Lila. Should she chuck it all and marry Lance Kilgore, the ambitious general manager of the Cobb Kernels baseball team? Jenny’s passion for prairies and heirloom plants as well as her deepening friendship with Jimmy Lathrop lead to self-discovery. 

With its atmospheric backdrop of threatened tall grass prairie and a soon to be abandoned historic baseball stadium and through its cast of colorful, quirky characters, Prairie Hill explores themes of redemption and love.

Adam Fluke is a regular guy. He wants love, friendship, and happiness. However, his bumbling-but-good-natured tendencies have left him lacking direction in life. Content with his lack of motivation, he earns a meager living as a pizza delivery boy. 

Everything changes one night, though, on a medium cheese pizza delivery to Sara DuBeau. Sara is interesting, intellectual, fun, and successful: everything Adam believes he is not. An unexpected, whirlwind relationship begins, and it's a match made in heaven. Or is it? 

Their storybook happiness is called into question by the discovery of a mysterious, buried-away photograph of a man with an uncanny resemblance to Adam. Secrets are revealed, the search for answers begins, and Adam's very identity is suddenly the one thing that could tear them apart.

The Purple Passport to London is the first in a newly launched series of eBook city guides by The Purple Passport. Essential reading for hip, discerning travelers and on-the-go locals, the guide provides insider tips on over 150 handpicked London venues, covering hotels, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, sights, and spas. 

The carefully curated selection of venues runs the gamut from historic hotels dripping in chandeliers to artfully down-at-the-heel gastropubs; from fashion-forward department stores where A-listers desirously prowl the designer collections to bohemian markets where plucky fashion students hawk their latest creations; from Zen spas hidden in unmarked townhouses to the private homes of eccentric Londoners turned intriguing museums; and from regal gardens where queens take tea to exclusive lounges where partying princes strut their stuff on the dance floor. Organized by neighborhood for easy navigation, The Purple Passport to London also includes helpful maps and city-orienting info about transportation, customs, and seasonal highlights.

The Purple Passport to London will soon be joined by eBook travel guides for Paris and other cities found on The Purple Passport’s website. Users of the website can also take advantage of the site's unique functionality features, including mapping and trip planning tools. Founders Jennifer Garcia-Alonso and Emily C. Brands launched The Purple Passport in 2010 with online guides to London, Beijing, and Los Angeles, and Palm Beach and Paris guides followed in 2011; guides to New York and Washington, DC are forthcoming.

The Purple Passport team personally visits every spot that it reviews and never accepts compensation for featuring a venue on the site or in its eBooks. First-person accounts of the team's travel experiences can be found on the companion blog, The Diary of The Purple Passport.

The copper smell was overwhelming, then it hit me, blood smelled like copper. Behind me I heard a crazy high-pitched laugh!

It was the last day of summer before school started. Hailey and her best friend Jared wanted it to be a day to be remembered but when they went on their new adventure to Old Jacob's mine it ended up being a day they would want to forget!

Even though Hailey is a girl, you'd have to call her a tomboy as she loves adventures with her best friend Jared and has no problem getting in and out of spooky situations! She, Jared and her beloved bike Blue manage to keep their lives pretty exciting and sometimes they are not sure whether it's ghosts or just their imagination. You'll just have to
 decide which one it ends up being!

FREE until 29th July 2012
Harry Iskinder knows the rules. 

Don't touch the water, or it will pull you under. Conserve food, because there’s no arable land. Use Sundered slaves gently, or they die too quickly to be worthwhile.

With extinction on the horizon and a world lost to deadly flood, Harry searches for a cure: the Hope of Humanity, the mysterious artifact that gave humans control over the Sundered centuries ago. According to legend, the Hope can fix the planet.

But the Hope holds more secrets than Harry knows. Powerful Sundered Ones willingly bow to him just to get near it. Ambitious enemies pursue him, sure that the Hope is a weapon. Friends turn their backs, afraid Harry will choose wrong.

And Harry has a choice to make. The time for sharing the Earth is done. Either the Sundered survive and humanity ends, or humanity lives for a 
while, but the Sundered are wiped out. 

He never wanted this choice. He still has to make it. In his broken, flooded world, Hope comes with a price.
