Saturday New Releases on Kindle

I thought we could try something new today…

For each of the various posts of free and discounted Kindle book offers I usually have a minimum number of reviews, combined with a minimum star rating of 4, before I will post it to the blog. By doing so, you can hopefully avoid a lot of the stuff out there that makes for a bad read. On the other hand, if an author has a group of people who decide to negative bomb a book (more on that in another post), the book won’t see the light of day on this blog or any of the other Kindle book-specific sites in the world.

That’s also true for new releases: not that many people take the time to write a short review once they finish a book, and it gets harder for an independent author to separate from the pack and get their work noticed. There’s a lot of new material by well-established independent authors – they don’t have the massive advertising budget the big publishing houses command and they need a little boost.

So, let’s try something new for Saturday mornings and see how it goes: included in this post are several relatively new Kindle book releases by independent authors in a variety of genres. Many of them have been featured on the blog before and can tell a good tale that will entertain you for hours. Each of the books have been significantly discounted in connection with this promotion, and I’m certain you will find something to enjoy in the offerings below.

Let me know what you think of this new feature – just shoot me an email to michael at fkbooksandtips dot com (I type it out that way in a small effort to thwart the spammers).

Then she undergoes startling changes herself, as her friends are hunted by a rogue military platoon that wants to impose its own law and order in the world of After.

Can Rachel and her fellow survivors make the dangerous journey to Milepost 291 and evade the Zapheads long enough to form a new society and preserve the human race?

Genre: Western / Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Catherine Evans fell in love when she was three years old, head-over-heels, forever kind of love. The very first moment she saw twelve-year-old Duncan McKenzie, she told God and her pony that she was going to marry that boy. He was handsome. He was kind. He was strong and smart and all the good things a boy should be. For thirteen years she loved him with every beat of her heart. And on her sixteenth birthday he walked away from her father’s ranch, and from her. He didn’t look back over his shoulder. Not even once. And from that day forward, Catherine Evans swore off all men. Her heart turned to stone, her will to iron, and her vow to God changed. She’d run her father’s ranch. She’d succeed. She’d survive. And she would never, ever love another man as long as she lived.

Duncan McKenzie left the ranch ten years ago, desperate to escape temptation in the form of a budding young lady too innocent to claim for his own. But Catherine’s frightened father summons him home. The ranch is under attack and the old man’s stubborn daughter refuses to seek help. Duncan left a sweet young girl behind a decade ago. He returns to a defiant siren, a woman whose heart is as wild as the land she would sacrifice her life to protect. When Catherine’s father coerces her into marrying Duncan, the fire in her eyes spells trouble, but it’s the kind of trouble Duncan has no desire to resist. Marriage is the only way he can protect her. Especially when Duncan’s own past comes calling in the form of one extremely dangerous and vengeful outlaw, Catherine’s cowardly enemies want the ranch badly enough to kill for it, and his reluctant bride is very much in their way.

This book has been completely re-edited and updated as of February 22, 2014. This western historical romance is a work of historical fiction.

About the Author:

cynthia woolf

Cynthia Woolf is the author of six historical western romance books and one short story with more books on the way. She was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.

Their closest neighbor was one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.

Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she’s made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

She develops a sense of belonging at the café, and her co-workers and customers become the family she never had.

While her friends spent their summer working and having fun, Alice found herself doing battle with creatures most human beings don’t even realize exist. A giant snake. A blood-sucking prince. A terrifying half-man, half-hedgehog. Dastardly dwarfs intent on mind-controlling everyone
who uses a cell phone.

Now, senior year has begun. With it comes a new challenge at school, where bullies have grown bolder and classes more challenging. As if that’s not enough, Alice must face off against a collection of Corrupted who all share a terrible secret, one that might awaken a creature capable of doing untold damage. To uncover the secret, Alice will have to face off against a man-eating lizard, a bloodthirsty sea captain, and a mysterious wizard who can see into the future …

This book contains the following episodes:

Episode Four: The Orphanage of Doom

After facing off with the dreaded dwarf named Sam Grayle, Alice finds her dreams plagued by two separate visions. In one, she’s floating through a massive mansion filled with old, dusty furniture and drafty windows. Shadows dance across the wall. Children cry out in terror. A mysterious animal growl echoes through the halls.

In her second dream, a terrible smoke-like creature roams the streets of Minneapolis, feeding off human victims while it plots a terrible revenge that threatens to have far-reaching consequences. Alice must decide which dream to pursue: does she foil the smoke-creature’s plot or try to rescue the children from an unseen evil?

Episode five: Blood and Thunder

Upon making a surprising discovery in a Corrupted’s lair, Alice finds herself torn between her responsibilities as the hero and her desire to live a normal life. She’s been granted a unique opportunity to leave the entire world of the hero behind. But before she can make her ultimate
choice, her nightmares return …

A ship is coming. And aboard that ship is one of the most terrifying Corrupted creatures Alice has faced yet. In order to face her foe, Alice will have to do without the help of her scorned friend, Br’er Rabbit.

At school, a miraculous recovery by the star of the baseball team prompts more questions, all of them bringing Alice back to that fateful encounter at the orphanage of doom. To make matters worse, a school bully has taken his terrorizing too far, a friend is in trouble, and the mysterious ship in Alice’s nightmare holds a terrible secret …

Episode six: The Order of the Golden Dragon

Three mysterious golden coins. What is their purpose? Alice must find out, and in order to do so, she will need to use all of the skills she’s learned so far. She cannot fail. Failure means a fate worse than death.

Agnim the Mage haunts her dreams, using his terrible black magic to plague Alice with nightmares. Once a character in the Grimms’ fairy tales, his magical powers have grown stronger and stronger the more Corrupted he has become. He has foreseen a cataclysmic event that could mean the end of the world, and only the hero stands in his way. But in order to stop him, Alice will have to find him. And soon. Before Agnim steals her sanity and destroys her mind.

Agnim knows her weakness. He knows her fears. He controls her dreams. He is the most dangerous Corrupted Alice has ever faced. There is no guarantee she can defeat him.

In these trying times, only one thing is certain:

The Golden Dragon will awaken.

NOW COMES VENGEANCE FOR A CHILDHOOD OF UNSPEAKABLE EVIL!

A killer on the loose. A father murdered. A girl molested…

The young UC graduate went to her father’s beachside condo the night he was murdered, but she doesn’t remember shooting him. Janice Parrish had plenty reason to hate her father after recalling the horrible memories of the sexual abuse as a child some 20 years ago. But even as she’s booked on murder charges, she knows there was someone else at his house that night. So begins Janice’s dark journey through a tortuous psychological wasteland of false memory and real murder.

San Diego ace crime reporter Ray “Magic” Myers digs up evidence that turns the story into a media event and at once makes both him and Janice targets of a psychopath on a grisly pursuit of revenge.

In a race against time to save Janice as well as his family, Myers must stop the stalking psychopath whose murder spree has only begun.

A psychological mystery, THE COURAGE TO KILL is a superb portrayal of the fallacies of the malleability in the treatment for repressed memory, a controversial subject whose impact has most fixated the mental health profession since Freud.

Category: Religion
 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The words we use can have a tremendous impact on a person’s life. With them we can build up a heart or with them we can break one. Words can bless and words can crush, but if they’re not founded in love they’ll always be harmful in one way or another.

Love has always been expressed first through the lips. Before every romantic relationship begins, words of love come first. We communicate our hearts through our mouths, and whatever is bubbling over from our hearts spills forth from the mouth.

Like a kiss on the ear a beautiful word can truly bless a soul. But a bitter word can crush a spirit. The words we use can hurt, and are often taken seriously by the one we’re speaking to. We ought not to be caught saying things we don’t actually mean, but expressing sincerity with the heart of Christ.

Knowing this, we ought to devote ourselves to having holy, edifying, and loving tongues. For if the Gospel of Jesus comes from our mouths, then what are hurtful words doing there as well? One should be careful to abstain from negative talk, whether toward others or of ourselves. Consider devoting yourself to have lips full of love as you choose words that heal.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In a world come to an end, one girl and one ragtag group of teen slaves find each other in the dark woods. They plan to make a stand.

This collection includes the first three books in the Young Adult Dystopian series THE PLANTATION.

(BOOKS: The Plantation, The Dark Legion, The Shadow Empire)

THE PLANTATION (Book 1)

A century has passed since they arrived. Human history has been erased. Children are enslaved on Alien plantations. Some have heard whispers of the existence of a rebel band of humans who roam free in the forests. Most slaves dare not speak of the rebels for fear the mutant guards will grab and make an example of them.

Seventeen-year-old Freya is pulled away in the night not by the mutants, but by her old friend Finn, to join the Saviors, the mythic band of rebel teens. Her bliss fades when she discovers she is the only Savior without a special ability. She is the odd one out, slowly pushing Finn away, defying Damian, the leader of the Saviors, and antagonizing the fierce and beautiful Daphne. In her despair Freya reaches deep within to discover a dark destiny, a truth so heavy it threatens to destroy her.

THE DARK LEGION (Book 2)

They have waited for her all these years, even before she was born. She lives hidden from their vulture-like drones, hidden in the dark, cavernous lair of her enemies.

The unseen ones will come for her. They must come for her. Their very existence depends on finding her, the girl with the gift of light, of power, of life.

Haunted by a past she does not understand, by a destiny they plan for her, Freya must leave the Saviors behind, leave Damian and Finn, leave even little Pip and embark on a perilous journey with a beastly warrior.

She will venture out beyond the ends of the charted lands, risking all she holds dear to cross the dead zone to where the Dark Legion awaits.

THE SHADOW EMPIRE (Book 3)

They come from a noble legacy of wonder and discovery. They cut through wormholes, portals and anomalies like shadows skipping across a celestial sea.

The hooded ones appear in an instant and disappear in a fraction. Every sleeping child fears a glimpse of their ghastly faces in their darkest dreams.

The Shadow Empire is dying. Their struggle for survival has reached a final battlefield in the forests of a primitive planet called Earth.

Freya, the hunted one, the most wanted fugitive in the history of the empire, wants to make everything right in her own dying world. She feels rage flowing through her fingertips. She feels her broken heart hungering savage ways.

She must become like nothing the world has ever known to save Damian, to save the floating city, to save Finn and Pip and little Tobi, too, but with war looming, will she be able to save her own soul?

As he draws closer to the truth behind the theft and murder, he also becomes the killer’s next target.

He and Mattie instantly bond over their mutual heartbreak, and as their friendship deepens, it ignites a new flame within Mattie, soothing the constant heartache for her former fiancée.

Just when Mattie thinks she may have found another stab at happiness, Jeremy reenters her life, and with him, all the crushing memories. It’s soon clear, though, that the trauma from her past may not be quite what it first seemed. Will the truth bring closure and a new beginning – or will it mean the end of both relationships forever?

Readers will instantly be swept up in the saga of love and heartbreak that unfolds. Offering a rarely-before-seen glimpse into the heart and mind of a romantic villain, audiences will find a welcome reprieve from the typical romance novel.

The Jailer’s Son: The Legend Begins, by S.A. Ferkey, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 67 customer reviews.

Category: Western / Action & Adventure

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A boy becomes a man before his time …

The Jailer’s Son: The Legend Begins is Book #1 of The Jailer’s Son series of action adventure westerns.

Maxwell Beck is no average boy. Thanks to his Pa’s insistence, he’s a sharpshooter, sleight of hand artist, acrobat, and cardsharp. These are handy, yet highly unusual skills for the son of a traveling salesman. Even so, Max thinks he’s living a normal life, until one fateful day when he inadvertently sets a chain of monumental events in motion.

Just days after his Ma dies, Max accidentally shoots his Pa. It’s then that Max learns a secret about his past that will change his life forever, and maybe even chase him to the ends of the earth.

Max’s Pa might be dying, but he’s insistent that they reach the Old West town of Deadwood before he leaves this earth. Max does as he asks only to find himself face to face with an uncle he never knew existed. Uncle Chase “Turtle” Beck, the sheriff of Deadwood, is not pleased to see his dying “no good” brother, nor his son. Turtle’s displeasure seems to linger even after Max’s Pa dies.

However, as Max rides out of Deadwood, his uncle intercepts him and offers him a job at his ranch. It isn’t clear what Turtle’s intentions are — Max saved him from being shot in the back by two outlaw brothers shortly after riding into Deadwood, or maybe it’s because he’s kin — but Max decides to give ranch life a try. His uncle has only one request: that Max keeps his special skill set to himself.

It’s an easy adjustment for Max. He enjoys the company of the other cowboys, and meets Patience, a sassy-mouthed blond who he believes is destined to be his wife. It turns out this happy time in Max’s life is only the quiet before the storm.

When an outlaw gang savagely attacks Turtle and threatens to strip Max of all he holds dear, he is forced to break his promise to his uncle. As Max sets out to stop the evil that has the power to destroy all he loves, he tries to put the events his birth mother predicted for him out of his mind — even as they come true, one by one.

The ensuing battle of good against evil gives birth to a legend for the ages: the legend of the jailer’s son.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Margaret Gordon was a prominent Seattle surgeon until a slip of her knife left a young boy without a future. After being fired, she returns to her family ranch, the perfect spot to hide out from everyone and lick her wounds, with no one around but her horse.

Margaret has never considered herself a horse person. In truth, though, she understands horses better than people. When Joe Wilde, a widower, drives up one morning with a teenage boy and a horse with a problem, Margaret turns into the klutzy misfit she used to be, and the torch she silently carried for Joe all through school is rekindled. However, when smooth-talking Joe convinces Margaret to work with the temperamental horse, she grows closer to Joe’s son, Ryan, and soon learns the horse’s issues are rooted in problems between the two–especially Ryan’s anxiety over the fact that his father is now dating a woman who’s only interested in the sexy Joe Wilde, not his misfit of a son.

Ryan wants Margaret to be his mother, so he takes matters into his own hands, setting Margaret in his father’s path every chance he gets. Even though sparks fly and sizzle between them, Joe believes Margaret has despised him all his life, and he decides all his rebellious son needs is a mother. When Joe proposes marriage to the wrong woman, his son takes off into the wilderness with only a backpack and a feisty horse.

To Joe’s surprise, it’s Margaret who saddles up her horse and heads off alone with him over a hundred miles of wilderness in a race against time and the elements to find his son. With Ryan’s life in jeopardy, will Margaret be able to put aside her differences with Joe and realize that he’s The One?

For twenty-seven-year-old Jaye Logan, life has been full of neglected opportunities and missed chances.

But on the day he decides to literally climb a mountain and seek something better in life, something better finds him instead.

The e-mail reminds him of what he lost, and he embarks on a life-changing journey to find it again, a journey full of adventure, mystery…and maybe even love.

OUTVIEW, the best selling first book of the Inner Movement trilogy – A mystical fantasy thriller.

There is a secret so powerful that, once known, the world will never be the same. For centuries they have died to protect it. Nate found it. They know he did. Across time and dimension they are after him . . .

Four years ago, his father died. Two years ago, Nate’s mother locked his brother in a mental institution. One year ago, horrific visions began to torture him. Now, a clandestine group, wielding overwhelming power, wants him silenced. Nate is only sixteen.

Nothing is what it appears and the tragedies of his life are all connected to the secret, a secret so unimaginable that it will decide whether our modern society becomes a utopian or dystopian world.

Nate embarks on a breathless quest to save his brother and unravel the mystery of their father’s death. His desperate flight takes a stunning turn when, along with three school friends, he encounters mystics who teach forgotten skills and lost wisdom and reveal an extraordinary destiny.

A fantasy thriller, set in present day Oregon and California, will appeal to more than young adult fans. Outview, the first book of the Inner Movement trilogy, combines mystics, metaphysical magic, psychics and reincarnation to push this new age conspiracy beyond the realm of the Celestine Prophecy and the Alchemist.
