DESCRIPTION:

“A tapestry of lives, trauma and subsequent vulnerability of three different persons.”
The last snow storm of the year was to be the biggest. Police warned drivers to stay off the roads. Families huddled inside their homes, wondering if they would lose power, heat and the ability to get out.

In the morning a glittering layer of frosting covers everything. A couple snowshoes into town and discovers the body of a young man found off to the side of the rural highway without a jacket, shoes or socks.

A Drop of April Snow follows three characters whose lives intersect in ways unknown to them. The characters all struggle to deal with their past, each making efforts to block out the details of memories that are either too painful or debilitating in some way. When their worlds collide it becomes increasingly impossible to ignore that they are forever linked in tragedy.

Where the Hell is Tesla? A Novelby Rob Dircks

$0.99

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

SCI-FI ODYSSEY. COMEDY. LOVE STORY. AND OF COURSE… NIKOLA TESLA. I'll let Chip, the main character tell you more: "I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans. One of these plans was for an "Interdimensional Transfer Apparatus" – that allowed someone (in this case me and my friend Pete) to travel to other versions of the infinite possibilities around us. Crazy, right? But that's just where the crazy starts."
CHIP'S OFFICIAL DISCLAIMER: This is a work of fiction: the events depicted in the collection of emails did not happen. I have never been in contact with a covert government group attempting to suppress knowledge of the lost journal of Nikola Tesla. I have not been threatened with death if I divulge the secrets contained inside. They did not buy me this handsome jacket (oh crap, you're reading this – trust me, it looks great on me). They did not come to my place, and liquor me up, and offer to publish this book as a sci-fi comedy novel to throw the public off the trail of the real truth.

Or did they?

I'm kidding. Of course they didn't.

Or did they?

God, I can't keep my big mouth shut.

Where the Hell is Tesla? has been compared to Terry Pratchett (the Discworld Series), Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and even Kurt Vonnegut (I know, that last one is probably a stretch.)

Available through March 12 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.
Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales–from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong–come together to show us that Toño is trapped, but surviving the best he can.
Toño puts on his favorite Bed Stu boots for this particular job–he must kidnap the girlfriend of El Commandante, in order to save his own life. Toño killed the one of the cartel's son's six months back in self-defense with his lucky tanto blade. You see, ain't nobody better with a knife than Toño, expect maybe his uncle, El Maestro, the man who ordered this job.
Toño can't go this alone. He calls on his crew: Rigo and Paco, and Jay–a bigtime ex con, old school drug runner, retired now, most of the time. Loyalty and self-preservation are everything to these guys. After all, that's all they've got, well, that and drug running.
But things don't go as planned. The girl they kidnap is not "the girlfriend." It appears the whole job is a setup. Toño must go off the grid, in order to save his bros, his crew, his own life. Just another day in South Texas.

Foreword Reviews 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist
2016 New York Book Festival – Runner Up

"Klingler presents his craftiest yarn to date, summoning the pulpy spirits of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The setting of Chicago rattles from the page in lines such as, 'The buildings held noise and exhaust fumes around me like a torture chamber.'" –Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Recommended List)

Tommy has boomeranged back to his parents residence and a dead-end job after too many years in college. As he looks squarely at his next decade of life, his smartphone convinces him the time is ripe for a change. A gift from his grandfather provides the means, so he embarks on the path of blues artists and beatniks before him–and hits the road.

He immediately meets a damsel in hitchhiking distress who says her name is Mona. Her presence persuades him that the bright lights and dark clubs of Chicago might be his kind of town. So on a summer Saturday night they settle into a fancy hotel overlooking the beaches of Lake Michigan.

On Sunday…Mona disappears.

But she leaves behind more than a sweet memory that involves Tommy in a brand new cash flow problem he never imagined. While trying to sort out how to stay on the right side of the law and get back on the road, he meets a young criminologist who helps him, a DJ who doesn't, and a librarian who teaches him about the city, women, and the art of the makeover. After truth and lies are stirred like a blue martini, being assaulted by a pink monkey, and witnessing a drive-by shooting that drowns a Ferrari–Tommy is desperate to help Mona.

If he can find her.

"A private investigator, a mysterious hitchhiker, dancers, gangsters, a mysterious bag that holds the unthinkable and twists and turns that will have the reader unable to put it down, Missing Mona by Joe Klingler has it all."–San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 stars)

But it’s when Georjayna herself begins to change in new and powerful ways she doesn’t understand that she realizes…

…things have gotten personal.

Faeries, ghosts, history and romance are woven through this enchanting tale set in Ireland in our present day. Born of Earth is one of the Elemental Origins Series of novels about a group of girlfriends each with their own supernatural journey over one summer of rapid growth and change. Join Georjayna, Targa, Saxony, Akiko, and one more mystery character who has yet to be revealed on their individual transformations and their ensemble story…which is not the end, but just the beginning.
