Roam Camden is a bright girl in small town Ohio, eager to graduate high school and pursue her dreams of teaching history. Her well-planned path includes Logan, her life-long friend… and now boyfriend. On the first day of her senior year she meets the new history teacher, West Perry, whose reputation has preceded him as incredibly attractive- and arrogant.

Roam quickly learns that her fate is not as simple as she once believed. She has spent six lifetimes, as far back as the fifteenth century to as recently as the 1970s, struggling to survive a prophecy that has forsaken her… and the man that she has loved throughout time.

Evil is near, and now, in their last life together, West must protect Roam for the last time, save their unborn child… and in turn, save our world.

Travel to the G-Spot – Steve Cohen
Genre – Humor, Fiction
Rating – PG13
4.3 (12 reviews)
Free until 23 November 2012
Danny Gladstone is a travel writer with a problem; he’s dying.

Determined to make sense out of what just happened to his life, he looks back through some of his stories from around the world to figure out how he reached this disturbing closing chapter. Along the way, he recounts a childhood of coddled captivity in the suburbs and not being allowed to cross the big streets alone, to exotic tales of intrigue, indulgence and debauchery in places from Thailand to Tonga to Times Square. He confesses that he considers travel writing an addiction that he must overcome, and admits that he’s only done it to confront his self-loathing and fear of everything.
He also manages to blow the lid off a secretive world of free trips and professional perks that exposes the dirty underbelly of a filthy business that is obviously not a problem to anyone but himself.

It’s the humorous, dark and oddly hopeful story of a character who was raised to always do his best, learns that’s often not required, and, instead of just getting on with his life like everyone else, continually sabotages his own best efforts by actually questioning why that's okay? It's a line of inquiry he deeply believes more people should be exploring, and though time’s running out for Danny, he can still remember Nana Belle, his grandmother, who made his childhood bed and cooked his soft-boiled eggs, saying, "It's never too late."

How much of the book is realistic?

According to the author, "All of it, I hope. It's a fictional memoir of a guy in our world. He's a writer. He has a family and friends. He travels to some pretty exotic places and writes about it, but he's not a werewolf or a hobbit. It has to seem real, I think. The thing is, I've been a travel writer for a long time. It's a great life, and worth sharing. Although I always strive for the truth, there's a deeper level of truth that isn't wanted in stories that are published. This book is an effort to get closer to those deeper truths by telling a story about what really happens to a writer on one fantastic trip after another that most people can only dream about. There's a dark side to it, sure, but overall it's just supposed to be funny. I hope it resonates for readers who grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s, and for those who wonder why all those folks are the way they are."

Blizzard Ball – Dennis Kelly

5 (8 reviews)
Free until 25 November 2012
Against the backdrop of a cold Minnesota winter, lottery players hold their collective breath at the thought of winning big on Christmas Day. The jackpot has run up to a red-hot $750 million, the world's richest prize. A bungled convenience store heist triggers a happenstance theft of winning lottery tickets and trips up an insider's scheme to rig the results.

Agent Kirchner, an old-school cop reluctantly teams up with a young tech-savvy analyst on an investigation that propels them into the world of numerical probability, conspiratorial politics, international ticket scalpers, counterfeiters, disgruntled players, and illegal immigrants looking to grab the brass ring. Caught in the crosscurrents of those in deadly pursuit of the winning ticket, the investigators are buffeted by unsolved murders, a bomb blast-and the curious giveaway of winning lottery tickets: acts of charity or criminal subterfuge?

The whereabouts and redemption of the $750 million jackpot lottery ticket remains a mystery throughout, stirring anger and resentment among the lottery-playing public. The winning ticket, finally, surfaces but before the prize can be claimed a Faustian bargain puts Kirchner's job on the line.
