Deceiving Noone by Mike Moreking 
Genre - Action / Adventure / Romance
Rating - PG
4.5 (11 reviews)
Originally from Boston, eighteen-year-old Nathaniel Noone is a slightly odd and insecure exemplar of the London student population on an epic mission to get across Europe and rescue his shockingly dishonest ex-girlfriend Cali, who is trapped in the ruins of war-torn Vienna. However, a treacherous journey to Vienna in the middle of the brutal war marks the beginning of his real troubles. Will Nathan survive the journey? Will he save Cali?

Massively unpredictable novel of personal insecurity, romance, friendship, epic journey and soul-crushing deceptions amidst the fires of war.


The author behind the book
My day job is all about lecturing Construction Management but writing fiction is my newly discovered passion. Deceiving Noone is a direct result of this passion and it is my debut novel though more are on the way.
I regularly erupt with activity within the social media world after spells of inactivity, I am a kind of infopreneur, I love listening the same song at least 10 times in a row, genuinely well organized yet often take upon myself too much and then it takes ages to complete it all...learning, learning and learning all the time.

Death Turns A Trick by Julie Smith 
Genre - Mystery 
Rating - PG13
4.7 (7 reviews)

Rebecca Schwartz, nice Jewish lawyer with a few too many fantasies, is happily playing the piano in a whorehouse when she suddenly finds herself assigned to make sure a near-naked state senator escapes a police raid. That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she’s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of Course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor?


Handsome Parker Phillips, Rebecca’s new beau and the most attractive man she’s met in ages, is arrested for the murder. (Worse, she suspects he might actually have done it.)



On the plus side, another very attractive man is following the case--reporter Rob Burns of the San Francisco Chronicle, a possible ally. And there are other possibilities.

The author behind the book
Author of the Skip Langdon and Talba Wallis mystery series; Edgar-winner; New Orleans resident. Also founder of www.booksBnimble.com, an electronic publishing start-up, and author of the YA paranormal adventure, CURSEBUSTERS!
Latest adventure:
I've reworked my writing class as an ebook called WRITING YOUR WAY (http://amzn.to/o6XN3T), with special emphasis on first chapters and marketing. You can see The Prose Nazi video below for an idea of my approach--i.e. flexible; designed to find YOUR best writing method, not force mine on you. We also have outtakes for your amusement. The third video, which I'll call GTFA, is a trailer for a fun parody book booksBnimble couldn't resist doing one rainy afternoon.

Crooked Man by Tony Dunbar
Genre - Mystery Noir / Hardboiled 
Rating - PG13
4.6 (9 reviews)
A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time. 

His clients are all renegades from the asylum, including a transvestite entertainer with curious medical issues, a buxom deadbeat blonde, a doctor who refers his own patients to a malpractice lawyer, and the driver of a Mardi Gras float shaped like a giant crawfish pot. He also has his hands full with an ex-wife and three teenage daughters, who are experts in the art of wrapping Tubby around their little fingers. And somehow, between work and family, Tubby finds time to sample the highs and lows of idiosyncratic Crescent City cuisine, from trout meuniere amandine and French roast coffee with chicory to shrimp po-boys and homemade pecan pralines. 

Tubby is asked to take on a new client: Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub, who has been caught unloading fifteen bales of marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym bag. But when Darryl is later found shot at the nightclub, Tubby realizes he must tighten his grasp on the gym bag - and its million-dollar contents. 

Tubby can't just give up the cash. But if he gets caught, he'll be in jail. And if the wrong people catch him, he'll wish he was.

Kiss Me Quick Before I Shoot
Genre - Biographies / Memoirs
Rating - PG13
4.5 (11 reviews)
Kiss Me Quick Before I Shoot is a memoir about magic: the magic of making films and the magic of finding true love. If you love movies and you're a romantic at heart, this is your dream book.

"For me, there is no more magical a professional endeavor than making films," says Guy Magar. With production work spanning over 100 credits from shorts to TV shows to feature films, Guy Magar's behind-the-scenes stories range from his first producer turning out to be a Mafia assassin, to shooting in Egypt for the original series Battlestar Galactica, to directing a grunting Mr. T on The A-Team, to almost decapitating a young Drew Barrymore, and coming close to derailing James Cameron's career (or slowing it down as he proved way too talented for anyone to alter his storied destiny!)

Kiss me quick before I shoot was Guy's welcoming catchphrase to his wife Jacqui whenever she visited on-set, seemingly always just before he rolled cameras. And so this book is also about a deeper magic, the magic of finding your soulmate, your life partner.

But then, out of the blue, after 26 years into their marriage, Jacqui was diagnosed with leukemia. Guy put his film career on hold and his entire 24-hour life focus became to find the right, new cutting-edge treatment to heal Jacqui. 

This book is about daring to dream...and making dreams come true. Join Guy on a wild and thrilling rollercoaster ride as he shares the behind the curtain reveal of a Hollywood directing career, the intoxicating highs of finding and sharing true love, and the sweet triumph of survival and healing, all rolled into a unique and engaging memoir read which will become a favorite to curl up with (hot chocolate required) and to recommend to all your friends.

The author behind the book 
Guy Magar was nine years old when he left Egypt in 1958. His family immigrated to the U.S., where he grew up in Middletown, NY. Graduating from Rutgers University with a B.A. in philosophy, Guy began his film career at the London Film School.

Guy has over 100 film credits, including La Femme Nikita, The A-Team, Blue Thunder, The Young Riders, Hunter, and the daytime drama Capitol. He was nominated in 1995 for a Golden Reel award for his TV work on the series Nowhere Man.

Guy's film work includes 'Lookin' Italian' starring Matt LeBlanc and Lou Rawls (in their first feature film); Stepfather 3, and the cult thriller Retribution (look for it on DVD this year!). His most recent feature directing credit is Children of the Corn: Revelation, based on Stephen King's original story for Dimension Films.

Guy is the founder of the Action/Cut Filmmaking Seminars which provides 'page to screen' industry workshops. He's taught thousands of filmmakers at over 100 weekend seminars in the USA and internationally. He's also the founder of the Action/Cut Short Film Competition, which MovieMaker magazine called one of the 'Top 10 Shorts Festivals in the World for Filmmakers!'

Guy continues to provide consultancy services for directors, screenwriters, and private coaching for actors. Contact him at http://kissmequickbeforeishoot.com or http://actioncut.com.

Guy lives in the Hollywood Hills with Jacqui, his beautiful wife of twenty-six years.
