My ebook, described by several reviewers as "a perfect beach read," might also be a good summer read.

Twenty-Somewhere
Winner of the St. Martin's Press "New Adult" contest

Twenty-Somewhere tells the story of three best friends as they navigate life after college. Beautiful and confident Sophie Lin, goody goody aspiring writer Claudia Bradford, and boy-crazy nerd MJ Alexander are ready to take on the Real World -- or so they think.

Originally written as a web series, Twenty-Somewhere is complete at 40 episodes. Think Sex and the City meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Hi Everyone,

If you like Action-Adventure/Action-Thrillers you might want to try The Golden Catch.

During a violent storm, a cave filled with ancient artifacts is uncovered on Frank Murdoch's private Alaskan island. Only problem is that the Korean mafia has been looking for this particular treasure cache ever since it was lost during WWII.

"Exotic setting, fast pacing, coherent plot, and a strong protagonist." P. Palmer

For an easy summer read, it is hard to beat a mystery novel. Try The Empanada Affair, just published as a EUR 0,99 Kindle book. This new mystery novel features Private Detective Roger Bowman, and the action takes place in Los Angeles and in Northwest Argentina. Bowman is hired to solve the murder of Robert Foster by Foster’s beautiful daughter Suzanne. The murder occurred a month previously in Salta, Argentina, and the local police seem to have given up on this case. Bowman and Suzanne, who is being followed by a mysterious man, travel to Salta to make their own investigation. The big questions they try to ask are whodunit and why was Robert Foster killed? There’s plenty of action, our PI and his client find themselves strongly attracted to one another, and the setting is pretty far off the beaten path for American tourists.

Enjoy the book!

Philip Chen meint:
I have been warning summer beach going readers in the States to be very careful about reading my very realistic science fiction thriller at the beach. After all, the whole idea of going to the beach is to forget your worries and stress and relax with the waves lapping at your feet and the gulls floating languidly in the ocean breeze. You certainly do not want to be stressed out by a book about the mysteries of the ocean deep. No, you want to relax and not worry about what might be lurking under the welcoming waters of the ocean.

My science fiction thriller is currently, number 32 in Kindle Science Fiction > High Tech (Number 34 in Books >>> Science Fiction > High Tech) in the States.

This very realistic science fiction, high tech thriller is about the accidental discovery in 1967 of mysterious, but mute, objects buried deep in the ocean. In 1993, they woke up and started sending signals to deep space. Mike, pulled out of his opulent office high above Wall Street to finish a job he started as a young ensign over twenty years ago, is attacked by gangs of what look like ordinary Americans. On top of all this, he learns that a revered friend has died. Will the death of Mike's friend mean that the secret of the objects will remain forever buried on the deep ocean floor?

A reader's comment:

"This is a great technothriller with a science fiction edge. The oceanic science in this is first rate and even though I felt like I came to the book with a better than average understanding of ocean science, Chen weaved in so much information that I felt like I was learning about the deep ocean environment even as I was swept along in a page-turning plot. Some of the science/naval aspects, combined with the Cold War setting, reminded me of the best of classic Tom Clancy, but it quickly becomes clear that is not simply a Russian submarine lurking under the water.

"There is an interesting mix of characters, including a Chinese man who faces occasional hostility from both white and Asian directions, but this is primarily an idea story, of the kind that sold millions of science fiction and technothrillers, but aren't as much in fashion nowadays. If you like a solid story with a great science edge, Falling Star is a great read, and at the time of this review, at a fantastic bargain price."

Another reader commented, "I will never see the ocean in the same light again."

This novel is so realistic that it often leaves readers wondering, "if this story might not be fiction at all, but something very real and very disturbing." Noted US book critic Alan Caruba says, "If you read just one novel in 2011, make it Falling Star."

Only one man can save the planet, but he just died.

44 Five or Four Star reviews on Amazon UK and US. 98,250+ words. 354 pages. Still only EUR 0,99 for the Kindle edition

By the way, thank you for making my novel:

Nr. 3 in Kindle-Shop > eBooks > Fremdsprachige eBooks > Englisch > Fantasy & Science Fiction > Science Fiction > High-Tech
Nr. 23 in Englische Bücher > Fantasy & Science Fiction > Science Fiction > High-Tech
Nr. 43 in Kindle-Shop > eBooks > Fremdsprachige eBooks > Englisch > Krimis & Thriller > Thriller

One final request. If you do decide to read this book on the beach - please, whatever you do, please do not read it with your back to the water. What you can't see just might be coming for you.

Ride This Day Down Into Night RIDE THIS DAY DOWN INTO NIGHT is a story about love, murder, deception, innocence, father/son relationships, abuse, marriage, new beginnings, but mostly it is about love. Told from the point of view of Tim Rich, a twenty-seven-year old English teacher who is married and expecting a child, he tells about a life outwardly seamless in its perfection and happiness which spirals out of control when he is obligated to home-school Olivia Buford. Olivia's father has been accused of the violent and gruesome murder of Connie Stafio a prominent, church-going denizen of the community. A coarse yet completely enchanting young woman, Olivia captivates Tim. Despite his conscious attempts to evade Olivia Buford, Tim drifts deeper and deeper into Olivia's hardened world. As Tim observes, "If Billy-the-Kid or Al Capone had lived in Califon, they would've been careful if they'd walked by a Buford." But for all Olivia's dangerous background and inescapable reputation as a 'Buford' she is a seductive, beautiful, smart and tender young woman. Her insightful views on the literature Tim Rich is obliged to teach her at her modest house and her enthralling sexual allure makes him gradually attracted to her while his wife, the closer she comes to term in her pregnancy, is more distant and silent. Tim is torn between the expectations his father has always demanded through love and devotion of him and the way he conducts his life and his attraction to Olivia. The results are shocking and will become something you'll think about long after you put the book down.

If you like stories with crime and science fiction mix then try T.S. Vandelocht's books. He writes Steampunk sci-fi-crime. Also time-travel crime and adventure.
He has written a book about the holocaust with his daughter, Ellen Dudley. Look them both up.
Most of these stories are for adults (18 and above) only as they have (tasteful) erotic undertones, which means if you are looking for porn and not entertaing literature then you will be disappointed.
There is one exception, the YA Werewolf story "Silvermoon", about a boy who...well, read it and find out.

Philip Chen meint:
Remember my earlier warning about reading this book at the beach, since the ocean harbors so many things. Well, Swedish explorers apparently have found a real-life mysterious object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The real-life object in the Baltic Sea gets even stranger with each passing day.

The circular shaped object is approximately 60 meters in diameter (not feet, as been reported). It is about 87 meters on the bottom of the ocean bed. Theories as to what it is run to crashed UFOs to ancient sunken villages. At sixty meters or 195 feet in diameter, it does not appear to be any man-made vehicle of known shape or size.

You can follow the action on a real time basis at http://bit.ly/FaceBookOceanExplorer

If you want to read my account on how these objects were likely found and verified, please check out the novel that I wrote over twenty years ago. My novel gets more real with the passage of time.

ONLY ONE MAN CAN SAVE THE PLANET; SMALL PROBLEM HE JUST DIED.

A very realistic science fiction thriller about the discovery of mysterious objects in the ocean in 1967 and what happened when they woke up in 1993 and began sending signals to outer space.

44 four and five star reviews on Amazon US and UK. 98,250+ words. 354 pages.

This book is so realistic that readers often finish the book wondering, "if this story might not be fiction at all, but something very real and very disturbing."

Strongly recommended by noted U.S, book critic Alan Caruba, who says, "If you read just one novel in 2011, make it Falling Star."

Thanks for starting the thread Hank.

If you want a political intrigue, action adventure, technothriller that read fast, try M.O.D. by J. C. Allen. Check out the video book trailer on YouTube for a teaser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It9YGWR8W54

Enjoy
