B-spine is a fast-paced near future thriller that's free on 23 & 24 February before it reverts to its usual price.

The west coast has been abandoned, the southern approaches are under attack and Canada has been absorbed by the North American Union… by 2098, the United States has seen better days. With oil running out and drinkable water running low, the only thing maintaining its sprawling Hub supercities are the livedrives – genetically modified, surgically augmented animal generators. When Officer Kirsty Powell’s job of monitoring livedrives threatens a corporation that makes them, she’s got only two options – run or fight.

Reader review: “Action-packed technothriller, that's one part film noir, one part sci-fi and a little bit of an animal - it is about biotech, after all. Crime novel fans will like the police procedural element too. The mix of cold, hard steel and soft, warm, lab-grown body parts had me thinking of James Cameron's Aliens, and thinking of James Cameron's Aliens is no bad thing at all.”

DEVOTED SISTERS

Elderly sisters, Lizzie and May, live quiet, ordered lives in the house in which they were born. Their self-imposed seclusion and the unchanging predictability of their lives shield them from the changing world beyond, until the day comes when their protective isolation is shattered and the world outside forces its way in.
There is reminiscence, loyalty, love and regret in the sisters' story, but the arrival of a stranger brings upheaval and danger. As their familiar routine unravels, the sisters' plight is further compounded by their unwittingly self-administered ergot poisoning.
Suffering the resultant hallucinations and paranoia, and with dark memories emerging from their buried past, Lizzie and May slip gradually from reason into their own confused realities, their former, carefully regulated world now lost to them forever.

Daughter of the oceans By Jennifer Gropp
Daughter of the Oceans

My book is for teenagers (as well as those who have stayed young).
It is for people who liked vampires stories but are slowly getting sick of them.
Mermaids and Mermen are the bad guys in my story. And every bad guy needs good guys looking out for us normal mortals. The Sons of Thor are decedents of Thor, who attach Merpeople with lightning bolts that shot out of their hands. They generously do this for all mankind in all major bodies of water.
But what would happen if the Merpeople adopt and fifteen year old girl? What if one of the Sons of Thor had fallen in love with her beforehand?
The setting is in Grand Marais, Minnesota on the shores (and in the water) of Lake Superior.
The girl in question has low self esteem and it is hard for her to believe that anyone would want her, much less fight over her.

1923: A Memoir Lies and Testaments 0,89

A True Story about Britain during the depression and through the Second World War
"1923: A Memoir" presents the story of a life lyrically described, capturing a time both before and during World War II when personal survival was dependent upon luck and guile. During this time, failure insured either a trip to the workhouse or burial in a common grave. Brutally honest, Smith 's story plummets to the depths of tragedy and flies up to the summit of mirth and wonder, portraying real people in an uncompromising, unflinching voice.

Nikki Bywater rated it 5 of 5 stars-Goodreads

In the first volume of Harry Leslie Smith’s memoir, we learn a first account about what it was like growing up in Yorkshire, England in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Born into poverty and the depression after the First World War in 1923, Harry does not get the best start in life. Harry and his father become distant and Harry takes his first job at only eight years old to help support the family. Not only is the family so deep in poverty but Harry is also starved of love and affection from his mother and neglected. Abandoned by his father Harry only companion is his older sister Mary, they dream of escaping their terrible lifestyle and for a better life.

The second part of the memoir Harry tells us about life in the RAF and about World War II Joining the RAF takes Harry away from Yorkshire and he shares his experiences about life at war and his life in the RAF.

Hunted and the Damned FREE Sunday 31st March & Monday 1st April

A British spy's disappearance in Berlin at the height of the Cold War has never been fully explained. When a retired British Secret Intelligence Service officer is brutally murdered in Berlin, the two events are dismissed as unconnected, simply a coincidence.

Following the dead officer’s trail from London to Berlin, Nick Torr – the SIS Director of Covert Operations – uncovers an obsessive quest for a missing convoy of Nazi gold seeped in myth and legend. In the shadowland of a city still divided by memories of the Wall, he discovers that the gold is only one piece in a complex puzzle of treachery, deceit and betrayal. In Berlin, he uncovers a number of traitors linking past and present together, secrets that Soviet Military Intelligence, the GRU, are brutally preserving through violence and murder.

Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip 0,89

A True Story about Hamburg after the fall of Hitler written by a 90 year old eye witness to history

Twenty-two years old and ready for peace, Harry Leslie Smith has survived the Great Depression and endured the Second World War. Now, in 1945 in Hamburg, Germany, he must come to terms with a nation physically and emotionally devastated. In this memoir, he narrates a story of people searching to belong and survive in a world that was almost destroyed.

"Hamburg 1947" recounts Smith's youthful RAF days as part of the occupational forces in post-war Germany. A wireless operator during the war, he doesn't want to return to Britain and join a queue of unemployed former servicemen; he reenlists for long term duty in occupied Germany. From his billet in Hamburg, a city razed to the ground by remorseless aerial bombardment, he witnesses a people and era on the brink of annihilation. This narrative presents a street-level view of a city reduced to rubble populated with refugees, black marketers, and cynical soldiers.

At times grim and other times amusing, Smith writes a memoir relaying the social history about this time and place, providing a unique look at post-WWII Germany. "Hamburg 1947" is both a love story for a city and a passionate retailing of a love affair with a young German woman

Hello!

Thank you for looking: My newest novel is up on Amazon, and my book trailer is on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmbSNdX5AFY

Story: The Saving of NATION

Anton Theril thought he was going to turn 18 on his birthday. Instead, he turned into a stranger whose entire life had been a lie.

His parents and uncle were not related to him and they, as well as the elderly neighbors he considered his surrogate grandparents, were actually Chosen Guardians that had been entrusted to raise him as a good German. One fit to rule The Fatherland in the place of his real father: Adolf Hitler.

Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun were married a mere thirty-six hours before committing joint suicide at the end of WWII. This seems a fruitless gesture unless one sees how this action would legalize their union and legitimize their child, a child kept as secret as their sixteen year relationship was to all of Germany, solidifying his role as Heir Apparent to the Third Reich.

Three and a half years after his surreptitious birth in 1941, Anton Alois Hitler I (ANTON I: anagram code name NATION) was spirited away from Germany then raised in the one place The Führer felt his enemies would never think to look should his son's existence be discovered: Canada.

Hitler admired Canada's vast territories and its anti-Semitic tendencies (Canada denied Jews sanctuary from the war until three whole years after its end!) making it an ideal temporary home.

The Saving of NATION is a story played out in retrospectives, allowing the reader to experience, and closely follow, the psychological and moral growth of a young man predestined to become the New Hitler, but guided instead by people who raise him to become a man bent on righting the sins of a father whose sins can never be righted.

The authentic, 376 word message found hidden in Hitler's Last Will and Testament that announces Anton's existence is a stunning anchor that makes this story intriguingly feasible.

How close to the truth did it stumble?

Dragon Fate (War of the Blades)

Dragon Fate, the first novel in J.D. Hallowell's War of the Blades, is a heroic fantasy adventure in the classic tradition of the genre. Delno Okonan is a young former soldier eager to put the swords and strife of war behind him, when a chance encounter leaves him inextricably entwined in a tangled web of dragons, magic, and intrigue, as he struggles to find his place among dragons and men, and stave off a plot by renegade dragon riders that threatens all he now holds dear.

Praise For Dragon Fate:

"...masterfully blends traditional fantasy with a somewhat more modern writing style. The worlds, the characters, and the plots were well defined, well developed, and creatively imagined. It was a wonderful read that you're not going to want to miss!" - Indie Review magazine, March 2013 issue

"Excellent...really well-written and compelling."
~ Geoffrey Kabaservice, author of "Rule and Ruin"

"If you are a fan of Fantasy and dragon-lore, it would be hard to go wrong with Dragon Fate....Action, adventure, and, of course, dragons. You will not be sorry for downloading this."
~ Adam Byrn Tritt, author of "Ezekiel's Wheel"

********************************************************************************************************

Dragon Blade (War of the Blades)

Swords forged by dragon magic. Ancient rivalries flaring into all-out war. Dragon Riders caught up in a clash of hidden powers. A world hangs in the balance.

Dragon Blade, the second book in J.D. Hallowell's War of the Blades, is the epic conclusion to the story begun in Dragon Fate.

Delno Okonan, his draconic bond-mate, Geneva, and their allies among the Dragons and Riders are once again caught up in events controlled by unseen forces. They must uncover the real secrets behind the death of a senior Dragon Rider and the sudden rise of the Roracks, ancient enemy of dragons and men, to defeat a threat that could destroy them all and leave the world they know forever altered.
