Watch Your Back

Author: James Scott Bell

Price: $ 0.99

GET DEAL at Amazon

Like your suspense lean and mean?

From the master of "heart-whamming" thrillers (Publishers Weekly) comes a collection of suspense full of the twists and shocks James Scott Bell is known for.

In the title novella, "Watch Your Back," hotshot IT guy Cameron Cates seems to have it all. A secure job, a fiancée who loves him and the prospect of a steady life ahead. But then he sees her. The new woman at work. And like watching a car crash in slow motion, Cam knows he can't turn away and is powerless to stop what happens next. A tale of lust and greed and corporate America––and what happens to dreams that become all too real.

Silent Run

Sanders Brothers #1

Author: Barbara Freethy

Price: $ 0.99

GET DEAL at Amazon

A woman wakes in a hospital bed with no idea of who she is. Her memory is gone, her baby missing. All she has is the gripping certainty that she is in mortal danger. Then a handsome, angry stranger barges in and makes a terrible accusation. He was her lover--and her child's father--until she disappeared seven months ago.

Jake Sanders swore he'd never forgive Sarah Tucker, but he isn't about to let her get away again--especially not with his daughter still missing. If he has any chance of recovering his baby, he must help the woman who betrayed him retrieve the pieces of her shattered memory--without letting his feelings get in the way.

Haunted by troubling flashes of memory, Sarah begins to realize she's lived a life of lies. But what is the truth? And where is her baby?

Post with Profile + Interview: HBS Author's Spotlight

Author Description:
Hi readers! I'm a blogger and author of both fiction and non-fiction. My titles include Blog It! The author's guide to building a successful online brand (blogs based on WordPress), and the Gen Delacourt Mystery Series: Mark of the Loon, The Last Fairytale, Paint Me Gone, A Thousand Tombs, Swindle Town, Lock the Cellar Door, and Midnight at Half Moon Bay (out soon).

I currently live in the mountains outside San Diego, California, the city where I was born and raised - but I LOVE Northern California so much that I use various Bay Area locations as the setting for my fiction series. Meanwhile, I write about my life and self-publishing topics at Stop by and say hello!

Each Gen Delacourt Mystery works well as a standalone story…

Beyond A Reasonable Doubt

Author: Linda S. Prather

Price: $ 0.99

GET DEAL at Amazon

Assistant DA, Jenna James took an oath to uphold the law, administer justice, deter crime and ensure the safety of the community. Her job isn’t easy, but it has always been black and white—criminals versus victims. Now she is the victim, and the very system she’s fought to uphold is suddenly corrupt, the lines between good and bad are blurred and her world has turned upside down. She’s always known that world existed—a world of power so immense that a single phone call can result in people disappearing or political offices being vacated, a world where doctors are available at a moment’s notice. She’s never been part of that world—never wanted to be.

The body count is rising, and unless she finds proof beyond a reasonable doubt against a corrupt former federal judge, and a notorious criminal defense attorney, it will continue to rise.

Amazon Author Profile

Author Description:
Kentucky author living in Lexington, Kentucky. I have always had a penchant for things a little outside the norm. I saw my first "ghost" when I was five years old, and I've spent my entire life trying to understand that vision. Was it real? And if it was, why? I became a paranormal investigator and love old houses that go bump in the night. I can often be found in old cemeteries just hanging out.

I studied metaphysics, including areas of touch healing, dream analysis, meditation and self-hypnosis. The power of the mind has always fascinated me. When reading I love books that allow me to travel around the world without ever leaving home. As an author my greatest desire is to create stories and characters that readers and love and hate, laugh and cry with and spend hours in sheer entertainment.

The Jacody Ives Mysteries was my first attempt to combine my love of mystery with my love of all things paranormal. The Catherine Mans series continues and expands that combination, delving into the darker side of the power of the mind.

I have always loved reading and writing. And although perhaps not a great literary work, I loved and was inspired by Old Yeller. The characters in that book were real to me. When I started writing, it was my greatest desire to write characters that readers could love and hate, laugh and cry with.

Knowledge was another love. I wanted to learn about everything. I studied metaphysics; delving into touch healing, dream analysis, meditation, and hypnosis. I received my associate's degree in metaphysics in 1992 and continued from there to become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I spent several years studying the effects of hypnosis on cancer and pain. I taught meditation, dream analysis and self-hypnosis through Eastern Kentucky University's Special Programs for four years. The power of the mind has always fascinated me. I've recently become a paranormal investigator, and love old houses that go bump in the night.

Amazon Author Profile

Author Description:
Before emigrating to Australia in 2005, Rachel Amphlett helped run a pub, played lead guitar in bands, worked as a TV and film extra, dabbled in radio as a presenter and freelance producer for the BBC, and worked in publishing as a sub-editor and editorial assistant.

After returning to writing, Rachel enjoyed publication success both in Australia and the United Kingdom with her short stories. Her first thriller White Gold was released in 2011, with the Italian foreign rights for the novel being sold to Fanucci Editore's TIMECrime imprint in 2014.

In her spare time, she enjoys skiing, horse-riding, playing guitar, reading (of course), and writing (another no-brainer). She also has a great love of films, especially thrillers, rom-com, sci-fi and biopics. She doesn't mind admitting she's scared of horror films.
