Tuesday Freebies Part 2

7 Feb

Adding to my previous post… here are two more Kindle Freebies for today:

 

The monsters lurk in everyone: monsters of greed, of guilt, of the pleasure found in pain, of the pain found when pleasure dies. Carefully disguised, the monsters can sit down beside you or take up residence within you at the slightest twist of fate. Will you try to stop them? Will you want to?

This collection of 18 stories from R. Thomas Riley deftly explores the monsters born of the human mind. “Attrition” offers a future prison system that frees only those who repent sincerely—but what can an inmate do if he finds that sincerity is not really the key? “Twin Thieves” and “Tautology” throw a devilish spin on relationships gone wrong, while “The Lesser Evil” twists the abuses of race and power into a gritty, noirish nightmare of the choices a man must make to protect a lesser man and a greater good. In “Touching God,” a young man’s past catches up to him when worlds bleed into each other and the past crosses into present, bringing back the abuse he once escaped and the brother who wasn’t so lucky.
Sacrifice, selfishness, and the worst of good intentions: all combine in The Monster Within Idea. From vampires and aliens to hit women and Wild Bill Hickock, Riley gives a subtle psychological turn to dark science fiction and horror. Let the monsters walk the paths of your mind. The idea is already within.

 

 

The long-awaited second issue of Shock Totem features new fiction from David Jack Bell, Cate Gardner, Vincent Pendergast, Leslianne Wilder, and others. Also includes nonfiction from Mercedes M. Yardley, a conversation with James Newman, reviews, and more.

 

And… if you missed SHOCK TOTEM 1 yesterday, well… it’s too late now, BUT… it’s only $0.99 so check it out anyway!  🙂

Tuesday Freebies

7 Feb

Just thought I’d pop on here and share a couple of Kindle Freebies that may only be good for a few more hours.  Just click the picture of the “books” to go “buy” them.   🙂

Five novels by bestselling author, Aiden James

The Vampires’ Last Lover:

Txema Ybarra is the most unenviable nineteen-year-old girl alive. Born with an unusual ‘twin teardrop’ birthmark on her neck, Txema is caught in the middle of a vampire war after all the other bearers of the birthmark are murdered. The race is on to save her blood, and her very life, for the survival of Les Amantes de Vampire. Otherwise, Txema will be the last one…the vampires’ last lover.

Cades Cove:

Buried deep in a Smoky Mountain ravine lies a terrible secret. David Hobbs, vacationing with his wife Miriam, inadvertently stumbles upon a small cloth ‘keepsake’ bag and a broken human tooth. David ignores her pleas to hand the items over to a park ranger, which opens a doorway closed for nearly a hundred years and unleashes hell on earth…..or at least hell in David and Miriam’s world.

Plague of Coins:

William Barrow carries a dark secret. A very dark secret. An archivist for the Smithsonian Institute and also a part-time operative for the CIA, no one would ever suspect the handsome ‘thirty-ish’ William is in fact the most reviled human being to ever walk the earth. His infectious warmth and sense of humor make such an assertion especially hard to believe. But long ago, William Barrow had another name…one that is synonymous with shame and betrayal: Judas Iscariot.

The Forgotten Eden:

Hidden within rural Alabama lies an unseen world feared for centuries by the residents of Carlsdale. Jack Kenney is the only person to ever survive a visit to this place long enough to tell about it. Held captive by the FBI in connection to a murder, Jack leads Agent Peter McNamee on an extraordinary roller-coaster ride involving a mystical and deadly realm within America’s Deep South.

Deadly Night:

When Country singer Candi Starr is found dead in Nashville’s esteemed West End, it proves to be just the beginning of a murder spree involving anyone close to the music superstar. Candi’s friend, ghost hunter and psychic Fiona Alea, and her handsome rock n’ roll husband, Jimmy, soon find themselves on a roller-coaster thrill ride to learn the chilling truth behind Nashville’s darkest secret.

Dark Ride is a collection of short fiction by one of the brightest writers in the genres of horror and dark fantasy. These stories range from the horrific to the surreal, and prove Michael Laimo to be a compelling stylist and relentless storyteller. None have been collected previously and some are original to this volume.

Fast Zombies Suck by Brian Keene

4 Feb

Getting a late start on the Wicked Winter Read-A-Thon this morning as I REALLY needed extra sleep after the week I’ve had, but I’ll get some reading in today for sure.  A link popped up to Briane Keene’s blog on FaceBook this morning as I was catching up on things so decided to give it a read.  In doing so I found that Brian had posted a video of himself reading FAST ZOMBIES SUCK, so decided instead of reading myself first thing this morning, I’d allow author/friend Brian Keene to read to me instead.  🙂  I enjoyed the story so much I thought I should share it here with you guys as well.  Check it out!  And if you enjoy it, be sure to check out his other books on Amazon.
