Ethan Justice: Origins by Simon Jenner 
Genre - Men's Adventure
Rating - PG15
4.8 (5 reviews)
FREE until 27th September 2012
He's a new kind of hero. Join him for his very first adventure. John Smith's life is dull and uneventful. Despite a privileged upbringing and education, he is an underachiever of the highest calibre. When Smith wakes up with Savannah Jones, an escort provided by his best friend, Mark Bradshaw, his life is changed forever. Eager to pay Jones, to avoid her pimp breaking his legs, he confronts his friend for the money - but there is one small problem - Bradshaw is dead. But what was the murderer after?

Fisher has lost his job and wants payback. Bradshaw had the one weapon that could grant him the ultimate revenge but torture hadn’t loosened his tongue. Smith and Jones are dragged into Fisher’s grand plot to destroy the bureaucrats responsible for taking the one job where his lust for murder was an asset. No longer part of the elite SAS, Fisher's licence to kill is revoked. With only vengeance and an unnatural lust for his sister on his mind, Fisher will relish the destruction of anyone that stands in his way.

Jones, an escort for less than a day, must pay her pimp a thousand pounds or be sold to an interested third party with highly unsavoury tastes. Jones needs Smith to pay the money and Smith needs Jones to... well he's not quite sure, but he clearly likes having her around. Together, armed with nothing but their wits, they become the pawns of an anti-terrorist agency in a plan to capture Fisher before he exacts a revenge that will take thousands of innocent lives.

Can the underachiever become the hero, save the day and get the girl? Find out in this dark story of murder, deceit, lust and revenge. It's a fun and wild ride into a disturbing world.

What Doesn't Kill You by Simon Wilson 
Genre - Biographies & Memoirs 
Rating - PG
4.7 (6 reviews)
FREE until 27th September 2012

I was just a regular eight year old kid with a dad who worked abroad. “There are no decent schools in Baghdad,” I was told by my parents, and so they shipped me off to a top UK independent boarding school.



'What Doesn’t Kill You' is a sometimes sad, sometimes horrific and sometimes humorous account of my first year at boarding school beginning in September 1971.


In the days before the abolishment of corporal punishment, this expensive school found many opportunities to wield slippers, canes, plimsolls or just hard flat hands for the slightest of reasons. By today’s standards it would be called barbaric. Did we suffer? - Yes we did. Did we behave? - Mostly. Did we learn? – Yes we did.

Having read several ‘true’ stories of inner city schools in England today, I thought it was time for people to have the opportunity to find out how we fared in an ‘old school’ system. 

This was a strict regime where if you didn’t have friends, your life was a living hell; where telling tales would get your lights punched out; where talking after lights out resulted in six of the best on your bare behind with a hard-soled slipper; where talking back to teachers meant you couldn’t sit down for hours. This was my home.


Is the return of this type of school the answer? You decide. Is it all true? As far as I can remember, yes. But as this all took place over forty years ago, some of the details are a little blurry. I can say that I have written every detail exactly the way I remember it.

Slumberland Station is an urban fantasy series for young adults aged 12 and up. 

If her father finds out Chloe plays with ghosts after school, she’ll be grounded forever. Why? Because for Chloe, playing with ghosts means racing them from rooftop to rooftop across the Manhattan skyline. Not to worry; when you’re fourteen, you’re immortal, so what could possibly go wrong? Well, let’s see…

Being asked by a ghost for directions and becoming the target of a seventeen-year-old assassin? Having to ride an actual ghost train and save a friend who never existed? How about befriending the scariest clowns you’ve ever met or learning your father may be a mad scientist and your life a lie? Now Chloe is left with only one choice: enter the Half-World and seek out the truth that lies beyond reality—if there’s such a thing as reality, of course.

Western civilization is risking the return of tyranny by increasing the size and scope of government.

Angry Mobs & Founding Fathers by Michael E Newton
Genre - History (PG)
4.5 (11 reviews)
FREE today
Angry mobs launched the American Revolution when they protested against British acts of tyranny. These rebels threatened, harassed, and chased away British officials and Loyalists. The Founding Fathers agreed with the goals of these Patriots, but not with their methods. Fearing anarchy, the Founders channeled the passion of the mobs toward independence. 

Working together, the angry mobs and Founding Fathers defeated the mighty British army and won independence, but the new nation that emerged was anarchic and chaotic, much like the angry mobs themselves. Meeting behind closed doors, the Founding Fathers conspired to depose the Confederation government, wrote a new constitution, and created the world's most successful republic. 

Angry Mobs and Founding Fathers tells the little-known story of how these two groups fought for control of the American Revolution.
