• The Last Justice by Anthony J. Franze, An Intense Legal Thriller

    Chaos erupts at the U.S. Supreme Court when an assassin guns down six justices as they are hearing a case. From its explosive first page to its haunting conclusion, The Last Justice by Anthony J. Franze explores the politics of law, the bounds of friendship and love, and the frightening price of unbridled ambition. It currently has a 4.3 star rating with 55 reviews. Check out the book that Foreword Reviews calls, “Absorbing” and NYT bestselling author Steve Berry sites, “Pulse-pounding.”

    A Little About The Last Justice:

    Solicitor General Jefferson McKenna, the government’s top lawyer in the Supreme Court, is appointed to the multiagency commission investigating the murders. As Congress draws battle lines over who will replace the slain justices, the commission follows clue after clue, each one pointing to an unlikely suspect: McKenna himself.

    In a desperate bid to prove his innocence, McKenna, on the run with his deputy, Kate Porter, must track down a disgraced law clerk with ties to hidden Saudi assets. But their search leads to unexpected alliances, unearthing dark secrets and corruption at the highest levels — and the people with clues to the riddle keep turning up dead. From the marble halls of the high court to the inner corridors of the West Wing, from the D.C. housing projects to the desolate back roads of a New York Indian reservation, McKenna and Porter are on a collision course with a shadowy enemy who will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

  • Best Indie Books of 2012 SEMIFINALIST – Finding Maria by Jennifer Hatt

    Today’s Best Indie Books of 2012 SEMIFINALIST is Finding Maria by Jennifer Hatt, an ordinary man’s extraordinary quest. There is no magic, no fairy tale, just the power of love and the written word.

    A Brief Synopsis of Finding Maria:

    “The best answers in life are found at the bottom of a good cup of coffee,” his mother always said. Jack Brandugan believed the answers to his life were to be found in the person chosen for him to love. From the time he could crawl into the front seat of Aunt Georgie’s beloved Ford Fairlane, Jack searched for her, knowing not whom or what he sought until a popular movie made everything clear: just as the Von Trapps in The Sound of Music triumphed over war, sadness, and a broken home, so too could he, if he found his Maria. Through monastic life in rural Nova Scotia, military service in Vietnam, and finally marriage, he found her. Rose Marie. His Maria.

    Then he lost her, or so he thought, until a corporate obligation links him with a writer that awakens his memory, resurrects his search, and illuminates the answers and feelings he has so fervently pursued. But, will Jack deny his future to protect the past, or will he choose the path untested, even if it means turning his carefully-tended life over to the chaos of a new beginning?

    About the Author:

    Jennifer has been a writer for years, but non-fiction: spec, deadlines, and paycheques. Then she met Jack, the main character of Finding Maria. And on that day, as Chardin wrote, she discovered fire. Harnessing it, well, here is step one. May you enjoy this and those to come.
    What People Are Saying About Finding Maria:
    “The story drew me in and made me feel as if I was there. Little Jack made me wish I had him as a friend in my youth. Older Jack made me want to be there to help. Can’t wait for more stories from Jennifer.” –Coemgen

  • HOT NEW Release – Perfect Skin by Nick Earl, A Laugh-Out-Loud and Endearing Tale

    Kindle friends, take a look at today’s HOT NEW Release, Perfect Skin by award-winning author Nick Earl. Perfect Skin is a light-hearted and candid tale centered around Jon, a single dad who is working, dating, and raising his child after the loss of his wife.

    A Brief Synopsis of Perfect Skin:

    Jon Marshall is a Brisbane dermatologist who lasers bananas as well as he does skin and has a penchant for making even simple situations more complicated. From Ash–his running buddy–to Katie–his coffee friend–to Lily–his daughter known affectionately as the Bean–Jon tries to keep the women in his life in neat compartments but ultimately finds that poetry readings, errant cats, and the Lemonheads all make life what it is–messy and blurry and vibrant.

    As he copes with the loss of his wife, attempts to avoid the dating scene, and puts off registering an obnoxious computer program, Jon is going to learn that the most important woman in his life will always be his daughter, and fatherhood is going to make him grow up–if not old.

    About the Author:

    Nick Earls writes long, short and medium-sized fiction, so far including twelve novels and numerous shorter works. He is the winner of a Betty Trask Award (UK) and Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award.

Five of his novels have been adapted into stage plays. He has also written for newspapers, including the New York Times, the Australian and the Sydney Morning Herald. He was born in Northern Ireland, but has spent most of his life in Australia, where many of his books have been bestsellers.

    What People Are Saying About Perfect Skin:

    “Dating can be daunting at any age, but Earls paints the battle of the sexes as a friendly duel with plenty of promising common ground, and readers should enjoy this amiable, well-crafted and genuinely romantic book.” — Publishers Weekly

    “It’s touching, funny and his main character has that charming haphazardness that Earls does so well. You can readily fall in love with the characters and their imperfections and you quickly find yourself wincing at Jon’s experiences and egging him on as he tries to balance fatherhood, love and loss.” –James Turnbull

  • A Game of Proof by Tim Vicary, The Trials of Sarah Newby

    A mother’s worst nightmare – can her son be guilty of murder? Kindle readers, check out today’s featured novel, A Game of Proof by Tim Vicary. It is Book One in the series, The Trials of Sarah Newby. It has a 4.5 star rating with 15 reviews.

    A Little About A Game of Proof:

    Sarah Newby, who left school at 15, and was living as a teenage single parent on an inner-city estate, has worked her way up to begin a career as a criminal barrister. Then in a terrible irony her own son, Simon, is arrested and charged with a series of brutal rapes and murders. The evidence against him appears so strong that his QC advises a guilty plea, but Simon swears he is innocent and begs his mother take on his defence. There is no law against a mother representing her son, so Sarah agrees. The only other obvious suspect for the murders, however, is a man who has already been acquitted once – with Sarah acting as his defence lawyer …

    It seems that telling the whole truth must be weighed in the balance against keeping certain information well hidden …

    About the Author:

    Tim Vicary is an author and a university teacher at the Norwegian Study Centre at the university of York, England. He’s written three crime/legal thrillers in The Trials of Sarah Newby series, and is currently writing a fourth. He’s also written three historical novels, two children’s books, and about twenty graded readers for foreign learners of English in the Oxford Bookworms series, published by Oxford University Press. In 2010 one of these, Titanic, was the winner in its category for the Language Learner Literature Award for the Extensive Reading Foundation, and another one, The Everest Story, won the same prize in 2011. A similar Factfile book, about Dinosaurs, has just been published this year.
