Young adult dystopian fiction.

For fans of young adult dystopian/post apocalyptic fiction, with romance, action and shocking plot twists.  Like The Hunger Games?  The Gone series?  You'll love this.

The future of planet Earth is bleak.  Two warring gods have decimated the planet.  Fanatical religious cults, cannibals and cat/human hybrids are just some of the dangers out there.  A young boy called Ben Casper lives in a crumbling shopping mall called The Glass Palace with his family. He's just come back from a rites of passage into the brutal outside world that officially makes him an adult. Now he must get married and be trained to take over from his father as Mayor. Except he sees things differently now.  He doesn't want responsibility. The only things he truly wants is to go back out into the world and win the love of Brian, who happens to be his best friend's brother.  Only he might have responsibility thrust upon him when he becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to kill the gods and save the world; a plot that could lead everyone he loves into mortal danger...

Genre - Parenting

Rating - PG13

Free until 24 May 2013

Have you noticed how most books for new dads are written by men? That's great when it comes to budgeting and building a crib, but not very helpful when confronted with that great unknown: the postpartum mother.
This book, written by two mums who met in hospital the day their sons were born, helps new dads navigate the important relationships with themselves, their wives and their new baby in a time of massive change and unbridled emotions.
It's all in the form of easy-to-read lists so you can pick up where you left off; we know how hard it is to do anything in one shot once you have a child!
We discuss everything from shopping (there will be plenty) to sex (there will be none) to mothers-in-law, and hemorrhoids (there will be both, or if you are lucky, just one). We don't have all the answers but we guarantee you'll get brownie points for just asking the question!

IN TOO DEEP is the first novella in Shay’s powerful, new anthology, AMERICA’S BRAVEST. (All six novellas are available in a boxed set.)
In the Hidden Cove Fire Department, Gabe Malvaso is a favorite among firefighters. He’s tough, fair, has a good sense of humor and loves his work. But for eighteen months, he’s avoided a member of his crew, Firefighter Rachel Wellington, despite his knife-sharp attraction to her. She is also drawn to him but is equally determined to keep things professional between them--until they’re trapped in a basement for a day, thinking they’ll never be rescued. Then, their feelings for each other explode like the building around them.
