The 56th Man 

4.1 stars on 25 reviews.  Mystery.

Free 4/19-4/23.

A former member of Saddam Hussein’s Special Security Force arrives in Richmond, Virginia. Under the name of Ari Ciminon, he sets up house on the James River. The house was purchased for him by the U.S. Marshals Service, which is responsible for watching over him while he supplies intelligence to CENTCOM. Because he is fluent in Italian (as well as a host of other languages) he is presented to his new neighbors as an Italian of Arab descent. Ari learns on his first day that the previous occupants, Jerry and Moria Riggins and their two sons, were murdered in their home nine months ago. The murders are unsolved. Ari has plenty of free time on his hands and sets out to solve the crime–in his own peculiar way.

Roaring Mountain 

4.4 stars on 46 reviews. Memoir.

Free 4/19-4/21.

When my son, Gary Gray, was killed by an avalanche while climbing Mount Shuksan in the North Cascades, he was buried under tons of ice and snow. I was told his body might never be recovered and that perhaps I should consider him now a part of the mountain. It was the beginning of a journey unlike any I had taken before. For the next few years I traveled through devastating grief and tortuous self-doubt while unsuccessfully searching for reasons why my son’s life was taken by the very planet he was trying to save. Was it his destiny, kismet, or fate? Or was it just plain old bad luck? I had to try to find out.

After three years of being in limbo and soul-searching, and just when I thought he would remain in his icy sarcophagus forever, the mountain was ready to give him up. His body was recovered under extraordinary, miraculous circumstances and the stunning sequence of events surrounding the incredible recovery was to change forever the way I think and believe. My slightly skeptical nature could not help but grow into spiritual enlightenment after experiencing such miracles first hand.

What Kabe learns is that he is a member of the Gifted Universe, a place separate from the parallel universes like the one Kabe lived in, and that he has the ability to teleport.

The Septic Circle

Contemporary fiction. Humor.

An Amazon Kindle Countdown Deal.

Regular price $5.99. Sale price $0.99.

As the only sceptic in Cravenly’s new and not-very-psychic circle, how many haunted toasters, possessed worry dolls, and sabotaged book signings can one man cope with? Jay Taylor’s patience may already be stretched to breaking point, but the odious presence of ego-ridden psychic star, Fenwick Arcana could just push him over the edge.

Having taken the nervous wreck who started this whole mess, Freddy, under his wing, and with gossip-monger Lysander and irrepressible believer Marnie to cope with, the circle’s most reluctant member is about to have his sanity severely tested.

Gathered together, their diaries chronicle the circle’s first year, as they fight through a minefield of paranormal detritus, smug wizardry, toxic baking, revenge plots, and the filming of disastrously amateur paranormal TV show, Spirit Squad. But through all that, perhaps the biggest battle any of them will face is one another. And the loneliness.

The End Came With A Kiss (Beautiful Dead)

4.9 stars on 39 reviews! Romance. 

On sale for only $0.99!

My friends and I used to laugh about the zombie apocalypse, the absurdity of it. But when it came, it was nothing like the movies had portrayed. We couldn’t have had it more wrong. There was no gore. There was no blood or tearing of flesh. It was the most beautiful thing the world had ever seen, and that was what took us by surprise. We were not prepared to have our destruction lure us in like a harlot.

You see, the end did not come with a scratch or a bite. It came with a kiss.

Last of her lineage, her accession would fulfill her father’s ambitions. Powerful forces were allied against them to overthrow the dynasty. Her father trained her intensely in Mayan calendars, history and politics and cultivated support among nobles, while his cousins plotted with enemy cities to attack Palenque (Lakam Ha).

Yohl Ik’nal (Heart of North Wind) put aside her personal desires and the comfortable world of palace women to meet challenges as royal heir.

Author Interview #272: Desert Mojito by Nazli Ghassemi

April 16, 2014
By

Our interview today is with Nazli Ghassemi author of “Desert Mojito” with 4.9 stars  on 32 reviews on Amazon. Ms. Ghassemi’s debut novel which is set in Dubai, United Arab Emirates has been described as “Engaging Women’s fiction with an international twist” by Kirkus  Reviews. Before we get to the interview here is a brief description on the novel.

Maya, a freelance photographer and a five-year Dubai resident, along with her friends—globe-trotting Arkansan Janet , Lebanese seductress, Michelle, and gay Pakistani-British, Asif take us on their adventures through this modern Middle Eastern city. As they stumble into social, sexual and romantic challenges posed by religion, tradition, and politics we are given a glimpse of life in this mysterious city of “sand, glass, glitter, and fake grass—an oasis, a mirage,” as described by the protagonist, Maya.

1. What inspired you to write this novel?

Multiculturalism and the visible clash of cultures in Dubai was the main inspiration behind my novel. Traveling and living in different cultures, I have come to believe that stories are important in helping understand another human being. Desert Mojito is just one story. But stories in general make us realize how despite our cultural, sexual, political and religious differences we all share the basic human needs and emotions. We all laugh when happy, cry when sad, we all know what it means to love, to lose, to win, to fight and so on.  Writing is my joy and my way of contributing to the world I live in.

2. You paint a vivid picture of Dubai. Tell us about the expat life in relation to the challenges your characters face in your novel.

The biggest challenge Maya, Janet and Michelle face is not really specific to Dubai. They are all in search of love like their counterparts in other parts of the world.  But in Dubai they find the clash of Islamic values and modernity confusing. The Read more »
