This is the question Caden must answer as he accompanies Thea, Ben, Rain, and Naomi back out under the dark clouds of the canopy, to rescue Viv from the deadly shadows and save a shattered Earth from the brink of destruction. Caden’s lazy, arrogant nature is tested as the group draws closer to finding Viv, forcing him to confront his inner demons and admit his feelings for Thea—even as their relationship is threatened by her ever-growing connection to Ben.

Will Caden discover his true potential? Or, when the group uncovers a devastating secret and faces a betrayal that has the power to turn the tide in the war with the shadows, will he abandon his friends and go back to a life of never-ending darkness? Read more on Amazon.

Thriller. Horror. Urban Suspense.

Alan, a Gen-Xer with obsessive-compulsive disorder, is randomly targeted at a local dive bar outside Chicago with a synthetic drug called Red Phase. This particular narcotic, with an effect similar to the common street drug “bath salts,” prompts its users into manic and ultra-aggressive behavior, spanning a half-life of 1-2 weeks.

After leaving his part-time job as a standardized test scorer, Alan meets a friend at a local dive bar for a beer. This is where a group of college students randomly “roofie” Alan’s drink with Red Phase, causing Alan to perform an atrocious series of murders he doesn’t even realize he committed until the discovery of alarming physical evidence in his home the next morning.

Upon Alan’s aforementioned realization, he contacts a former undergraduate classmate and friend, George, who is a defense attorney in Chicago. After a quick phone conversation, George commutes to Alan’s house and convinces him it best to turn himself in, but under the umbrella of his counsel and protection.

While Alan is sitting in lockup, sleeplessly wrestling with his OCD, The Hand, an underground black bloc group of military-skilled insurgents, liberates him from confinement. After Alan is transported to their underground compound nestled in the recessed boroughs of “Old Chicago,” he meets the leader of the domestic terror cell and discovers it’s responsible for the creation of Red Phase. Consequently, this brotherhood plans to mass-distribute the synthetic drug during the height of the G20 Summit in Chicago, hoping to throw the city into a chaos of apocalyptic proportions. Read more on Amazon.

Romantic Suspense.

Currently priced at $2.99.

Winner of 2013 Royal Palm Literary Award

Tully’s first marriage ended badly, and then she lost the true love of her life in a motorcycle accident. She longs to have a family, but knows she won’t get a third chance at happily-ever-after.

Mack’s wife died two years ago, and he’s determined to never love again. He has everything money can buy, but what he wants most is a mother for his three-year-old son, Cody.

When Tully and Cody bond over a sandcastle in the park, Mack impulsively offers her an unorthodox business proposition: a contract marriage with Cody at the center. There will be no love and no sex, but if Tully will move to Mack’s Colorado mansion and care for Cody until he’s eighteen, Mack will support her while she pursues her dream to write—and throw in a two million dollar bonus.

The idea is crazy, but for these two broken-hearted people, it seems to work. That is, until Tully starts to fall for Mack—a definite no-no for their bargain—and an outsider threatens the future of their unusual family.

But…  Bastion is unlike anything she expected. The Demon King is nice to her, offering safety and kindness in exchange for… what? In order to retain succession to the throne, a demon must provide an heir; when a demon couples with a human, the inevitable fate of the woman is to die from the demonic energy growing inside her.

Still…  Between the life she once had, the intimate emotions stirring within her, and the need to belong, to have companionship and something truly of her own, Solace struggles to come to terms with her situation.

  • Road sign “engineer”
  • Bootlegger

Author Interview #308: Demon Inhibitions by Gary Starta

August 20, 2014

Our interview today is with Gary Starta, author of the Caitlin Diggs series title: Demon Inhibitions (SCI FI, 4.0 stars, 34 reviews).

Before we get to the interview, a brief description of the series:

FBI Special Agent Caitlin Diggs altered by a mysterious crystal and beginning to develop paranormal abilities uses her psychic sense to track a fugitive from her world to an altered universe. Diggs begins to sense the ‘demon’ she is tracking has been crafted, eugenically, but for what end?

When she finds the being’s father is a fringe scientist the puzzle becomes more disturbing. Could the scientist be in league with a demon hating group in the altered world planning genocide? Diggs’ notion of evil and good is challenged when she finds it may the humans of this world who are most devious and dangerous. But a singer, with the power to curb demon violence, may also be the creation of the scientist and if so, is she an instrument of peace? As Diggs begins to trust this mage she learns the special girl is high on the killer’s hit list merely because of family jealousy. Diggs comes to find families and feelings aren’t very different in a parallel world or whether you are a demon or not.


Author Gary Starta weaves multiple sub-genres into this story, including paranormal (witches-demons-off in the backstage, lycans and vamps) and science fiction (parallel universes, doppelgangers, alternate dimensions), plus mystery-but keeps it all balanced as he juggles several subplots and many characters. You can find Demon Inhibitions on Kindle at a sale price.

Then imagine what happens when things go wrong…

The Golden Goose of Los Angeles Extended Edition

4.0 stars on 26 reviews.


Do you love Thrillers? Take a wild ride with: danger, intrigue, betrayal, and the dark exploration of self- jaw-dropping revelations, and intense characters.

This new, fast-paced story may be too much for some to handle, as it leaves many feeling: on edge, shocked, and haunted by the nature of humanity.

Rory Chambers is an extreme sports expert who helps people to partake in every adrenaline inducing experience that California has to offer. However, his life becomes complicated when it is discovered that, due to a special protein produced by his body, his blood can cure a variety of terminal illnesses, including deadly cancers, and pathogens such as HIV.

When the medical experts report their inability to create a vaccine artificially, Rory finds that there is no shortage of rich and powerful people who are desperate for a second chance… Desperate enough to carve it straight from his body.

Regardless of what his career in extreme sports has taught Rory about fear; nothing can prepare him for the unpredictable ride, and lascivious betrayals that are borne by the human psyche.

When his blood is valued at over $500,000 a pint, and so many dying people are looking for another chance; how will he keep the world from draining him of everything?

A Heart Decision

4.1 stars on 73 reviews.

Contemporary Romance.

On her wedding night, Sabrina will share the bridal suite with one of her brother’s best friends. Which one? She has no idea!

Sabrina Fitzpatrick helped plan her dream wedding last year—for her brother and his wife. Now, she wants her own fairytale ceremony. She’s tired of waiting for commitment-phobe, Detective Luke Marino, to realize she’s been crazy about him since puberty. Consequently, when Luke’s billionaire friend asks her to marry him, she’s compelled to accept BJ Elliott’s proposal, especially after he suggests their impending marriage might induce his idiot pal to finally step forward. Unfortunately, a week later, adrenaline-junkie Luke risks his life again and ends up temporarily confined to a wheelchair.

BJ would love to give Sabrina an unforgettable wedding night, but he fears she’ll never be happy with him if she doesn’t resolve her feelings for his buddy, first. Therefore, even knowing he could lose her, BJ persuades her to become Luke’s live-in nurse—offering her one last chance to convince the man she loves to take BJ’s place at the altar (which BJ doubts his friend will ever do).

Luke has two secrets not even his best friends know. The first is he aches for Sabrina with every fiber of his being. The second is he loves her enough to spare her the heartbreak that being his wife would undoubtedly entail. Much to Luke’s dismay, his resolve to resist his buddy’s fiancée is tested after Sabrina steps in as his nurse and starts prancing around in nothing but his threadbare T-shirt. If he surrenders to her seduction, it may destroy his relationship with BJ. And, worse still, if he gets a taste of loving Sabrina, how can he ever stand by and let her marry his friend?

Revision 7: DNA

Science Fiction.

Regular price $2.99. On sale for $0.99!

Time traveling robots, a walking medical experiment turned detective genius, and a kidnapped psychic combine in a story that will tear at your heart and get your adrenaline pumping.

the problem…   When it comes to investigating missing objects, Neil Altman stands out. After all, his parents severed the two halves of his brain when he was a child and then trained him to use each half independently. The problem is that he doesn’t believe in time machines, so Dr. Eric Steffenbraun’s project, stolen or not, already sounds far-fetched.

the proof…   Video is hard to deny, but Neil isn’t sure if the beings coming through the time machine are humans with masks or illegal humanoid robots. Besides, Dr. Steffenbraun could have faked the video if he feared the project was about to be cancelled.

the complication…   Neil’s wife, Mavra, is a well-known psychic in the area, and believes that Neil could be in danger. Knowing how she can get involved even when asked not to, he includes her in on the investigation. His plan is to keep her out of harm’s way. That is until she’s kidnapped.

the wildcard…   Miles away from Neil and the time machine, Fenny is trained to think on his own. He’s a utility robot with little understanding of what’s going on around him except what Dr. Smedley Klein has taught him—for now. Things are about to change for Fenny once Revision 7 is installed.

50 Weight Loss Shakes For Paleo Lovers


Regular price $2.99. On sale for $0.99!

Paleo lovers get your veggies on!

Paleo Smoothies For Smart People.

No time to cook? Join the club. Intimidated by the thought of having to eat all these extra vegetables? Don’t be. This book has you covered with 50 delicious Paleo Smoothies that are easy and quick to make.

Why Bother With Paleo Smoothies?

Convenience leads to weight gain but can also lead to weight loss. It is a powerful tool. Eating a pound of vegetables a day can seem like an inconvenience but drinking a couple weight loss shakes that support your Paleo eating is super convenient.

If you don’t make eating healthy feel convenient, you will eat unhealthily. It is that simple.

A Paleo diet derives its health benefits from the fact you cut the crap and add in ample amounts of vitamin and anti-oxidant loaded fruits and vegetables. If you are not a fan of chewing cup after cup of broccoli and kale then smoothies will be your saving grace.

Paleo Is Stupid Simple.

That doesn’t mean it doesn’t take effort to follow a Paleo diet, but it is not complicated at all. At its foundation, it is one of the most basic forms of eating available. The Paleo smoothie recipes you find inside are stupid simple. That is what makes them great.

4.3 stars on 315 reviews.

Cozy Mystery. Women’s Fiction. 

Polly Giller returned to Iowa from Boston to start a new life, not that her old one was all that bad. With her inheritance, she purchased an old school building in Bellingwood and is in the middle of renovating it when the bones of two bodies are pulled out of a ceiling.

The whole town knows who those bones belong to, but when she also finds crates and crates of items from the sixties through the early nineties in the old root cellar, they wonder if the two things are connected.

A welcoming committee shows up at Polly’s front door and these women soon become her fast friends. Fortunately, the leader of the group is married to the Sheriff and he is there to make sure mysteries are solved and everyone stays safe, but when Polly’s old boyfriend from Boston shows up, that becomes a little more difficult.

The women might be a little older than Polly, but she finds out they might be even more wild than the friends she had when living back east. Lydia Merritt, the Sheriff’s wife, is a woman filled with love and passion. Beryl Watson is an artist and more than a little flamboyant. Andy Saner wants to organize and label the world, but loves with a great big heart and Sylvie Donovan, with her two young sons is trying to make it as a single mother.

The men in Polly’s world are just as interesting. Henry Sturtz is the carpenter and contractor in charge of construction and might have a little crush on his boss, while Doug Randall and Billy Endicott are her Jedi Knights in Shining Armor.

97 Lessons of Gratitude to Ignite Your Life and Make People Like You

5.0 stars on 18 reviews.

This book shows you the power of gratitude, and how every day the most successful people use it to thrive, seek happiness and help others.

Most of us say ‘thank you’ reflexively to show good manners, appreciate favors received, enjoy serendipity or comply with etiquette. But research has shown that properly applied gratitude (not automatic or fake gratefulness) can exponentially improve your life and help you succeed in everything – yes, EVERYTHING – you undertake. The key lies in constantly following several things discussed in the book.

The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide and a sample chapter of sequel The Power of Patience: 96 Traits of Highly Effective People – A Dip in the Minds of Successful Folk, From Leaders to Laymen. Through thought-provoking questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it – alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others.

After reading this book, you will know how to:

  • Identify where yourpassion truly lies, and how to effectively follow your heart;
  • Use gratitude to succeed in every activity you undertake; and
  • Communicate and negotiate more effectively (the ‘promise in compromise’)

The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo

4.7 stars on 32 reviews.

Action Adventure.

An Amazon Kindle Countdown Deal!

Regular price $7.99. On sale for $0.99 until 12:00 (noon) EST on 8/19/2014.

The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo begins with a condensed retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, related through the voice of Sherlock Holmes. It includes exhilarating new adventures, characters, and ideas, carrying the reader through books I and II and into book III of an ever-expanding new series based on the classic.

The author consulted the original French as well as the oldest English translations of The Count of Monte Cristo, but the style of the retelling, in the distinctive voice of Sherlock Holmes, constitutes a new work. Books II and III, incorporated herein, are wholly original sequels although they include characters from the original classic.

The author of The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo also consulted a more current 2003 translation by Robin Buss of the The Count of Monte Cristo, which helped to inspire both this work and the first sequel in this series, The Sultan of Monte Cristo. The most recent (2003) unabridged translation by Buss is indispensable to fully appreciate the original story.

Those who have already had the pleasure of reading The Sultan of Monte Cristo will certainly appreciate the unique way in which the Holy Ghost Writer has expanded the original story without the help of anyone (except perhaps from the ghost of Dumas himself).

While The Sultan of Monte Cristo has been enjoyed by thousands as a stand-alone work, this work is an even easier read of the classic, as it includes a condensed version of the original story retold in the voice of Sherlock Holmes. This collection of stories also serves as a prequel to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
