Pobody's Nerfect by Scott Helvick
Genre – Biographies / Memoir
Rating – PG13
4.8 (4 reviews)
Free until 20 October 2012
When I first got the idea to dig up nine years’ worth of my own blog posts, journal entries, handwritten notes, and miscellaneous Internet postings, I surmised that it would be relatively easy to compile the best ones into a decent-looking e-book.

As you can imagine, the only part that was “relatively easy” was the procrastination. After obsessively poring over and sorting nearly 900 pieces of writing, I came to the disappointing conclusion that very few, if any, of these pieces were good enough to pass through my filter for inclusion in the book. I was hoping to be able to glue them into a cohesive narrative detailing some of the most defining periods of growth in my life, but there just wasn’t enough substance behind many of those posts/entries/notes, especially the earlier ones, to allow me to write the story in the way I wanted to write it. I needed a new approach (or a new past).

That’s when the title hit me – Pobody’s Nerfect seemed, ironically, perfect. An account not only of my perpetually problematic perfectionistic proclivities, but also, self-referentially, of my struggles with those very same proclivities in writing this book.

Pobody's Nerfect is a story of truth, above all else. It is also a story of my struggles with, among other things, love, spirituality, and intense personal growth throughout young adulthood. I certainly hope you will find it entertaining and inspiring, but I can promise only truth.

Seventeen year old Jade Sommers' life is turned upside down the moment she sees the inch long cut across her face heal right before her eyes.

Jade thinks she is going insane, but her boyfriend, Aiden Scott, knows better. He knows what she is. And like him, she was born this way.

Now if finding out that people like her shouldn't exist isn't bad enough, Jade's best friend is kidnapped by the psycho who terrorises her dreams. With the help of Aiden, Jade has to figure out how to save her before it's to late.

But what Jade doesn't know is not everything is what it seems. She is merely a puppet in a sadistic game to find out what she is truly capable of, and that game has only just begun.



Circle of Bones – Christine Kling
Genre – Adventure, Thriller
Rating – R
4.4 (90 reviews)
Free until 21 October 2012
Do you love to read big adventure thrillers packed with tales of gold snatched away from Nazis, chase scenes in steaming jungles, even steamier sex scenes, treacherous waterfalls, coded messages buried in dusty journals, and a secret society conspiring to take over the world?

Christine Kling's new Caribbean thriller, CIRCLE OF BONES, is just such a real page-turner based on an actual true mystery of World War II. The French submarine Surcouf, once the largest submarine in the world, departed Bermuda in 1942 and vanished without a trace. In this pulse-pounding thriller, Kling imagines what might have happened in this unsolved mystery.

Solo sailor Maggie Riley is cruising aboard her forty-foot sailboat when she rescues a sexy – but crazy conspiracy-spouting treasure hunter/archeologist who is swimming totally nude off the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. She soon learns he is searching for the wreck of a mysterious submarine. Cole Thatcher claims the sub holds millions in gold coins as well as secret documents from a powerful inner circle of Skull and Bones whose goal is to keep America at war for their own profits. Cole hopes for Riley's help in decoding his father's journals that are the key to the location of the wreck.

At last, Riley joins the search for Surcouf when she discovers the demons in her own past intersect the inner Circle of Bones, and this conspiracy nut might not be so crazy after all.



Out of the Shadow – J.S. Winn
Genre – Suspense
Rating – PG13
4.6 (14 reviews)
Free until 19 October 2012
Out of the Shadow tells the story of two women drawn together in the present to uncover a crime from the past

Having survived a rape and her husband's murder, all Becca Rosen wants to do is move on with her life, but how can she when she's being stalked by a psychopath with an attitude---and an agenda. The police are no help because they're convinced, with her history of mental illness, Becca has faked the rape to get away with murder. On top of that, Becca has begun to have flashbacks and nightmares of childhood abuse, possibly at the hands of the rapist. Not knowing where to turn, and feeling like she might go crazy again, Becca hires Psychologist, Sarah Abrams, to help her unearth who's behind the crimes of the past...and the present.

Three men come into Becca's life around the same time. While each of these men has his charms, Becca can't be certain whether any one of them is the real killer. Or could it be someone else? Together Becca and Sarah start on a course of hypnotherapy to discover the abuser's identity. Will their work reveal the real killer before it's too late, or will Becca once again fall prey to this demented criminal?

D. Donovan of the Midwest Book Review wrote:
First- and third-person perspectives alternate in a series of twists and turns that offer a stunning conclusion to a story replete with intrigue and deceptions.

Like the layers of an onion, OUT OF THE SHADOW peels away personalities, motivations, underlying motives, and dark, long-hidden secrets that immerse a circle of people in a web of dangerous associations.

The conclusion is riveting, unexpected, and as satisfying as the rising psychological suspense which begins from the first page and ends with a bang.



Jazz Funeral – Julie Smith
Genre – Mystery
Rating – PG13
4.5 (10 reviews)
Free until 20 October 2012
The THIRD BOOK IN THE SKIP LANGDON mystery series by Edgar Award-winning author Julie Smith.

"A genuinely moving mystery ... It's always a pleasure to spend time with Skip, a no-nonsense, level-headed heroine in a wild and reckless city." -THE BALTIMORE SUN

"A super protagonist, well-defined characters, and musical highlights make this essential." -Library Journal

Everybody loved easygoing Ham Brocato, producer of the famed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. So how did he end up stabbed to death in his kitchen on the eve of the fest? New Orleans Homicide Detective Skip Langdon acquires a ready-made suspect list from the victim's live-in lover, feisty and swiftly rising star Ti-Belle Thiebaud, and sets out to solve the murder. To complicate the case, the victim's sixteen-year-old blues musician sister has disappeared, and Skip suspects that if the young woman isn't the murderer, she's in mortal danger from the person who is.

Skip doesn't miss much as she probes the victim's tangled relationships, including Ariel Bruge, Ham's assistant, apparently a woman scorned; his father George, enmeshed with family members in a bitter disagreement over the family's lucrative Po' Boy chain; and Patty, the distraught stepmother.

With her long-distance love, Steve Steinman, and her gay landlord, Jimmy Dee, to assist her, Skip trails an elusive killer through a sweltering

early summer in the steamy Big Easy, a lively blend of big city and gossipy small town, in a tale of southern kinships gone awry.

Jessica's husband, Adam, is going through some changes. First, he writes an erotic novel and sells it online, using her name as the author's name. Then, as sales take off, and male admirers start chatting to them on the internet, he convinces her to assume the role of the sexy female author and flirt with them. As the men want more information, and ask to meet her, Adam does what Jessica never imagined he ever would-he gives her permission!

Through a series of trysts, Jessica re-enacts different chapters from Adam's book. She has a kitchen scene with the chef, a bedroom liaison with the gardener, and Adam even encourages her to meet the stable-boy in the stables. Working her way through different chapters and different men, she knows there is more to Adam's behavior than selling books, she just can't figure out what it is.
