Dead Game by Jennifer Chase


In this Video Game, ‘Game Over’ Means You’re Dead

In her independent efforts to catch child killers, Emily Stone discovers the evidence that the cops can’t—or won’t—uncover. Now, this covert investigator is back on the hunt for the world’s most sick and twisted murderers. But even with help from ex-police detective Rick Lopez, this time Emily’s facing her most dangerous opponent yet.
The headlines in the San Jose Mercury News blare updates on a serial killer who seems able to slaughter with impunity. Men, women—it doesn’t matter; the victims serve only to satisfy a perverted need to kill.  The killer watches the moment of death on multiple computer screens, over and over again. The only connection is that they’re all devotees of the latest video-game craze—a sophisticated brain-puzzler called EagleEye.
When the killer goes after Lopez’s law-enforcement mentor, Lopez and Stone decide to give the cops a little extra, unsolicited help. What follows takes them deep inside a shocking high-tech world, a kind of social-networking community for serial killers. But when they start getting too close to the truth, all hell’s going to break loose.
Now, Stone and Lopez become the killer’s next target as Stone must make a difficult decision to leave the ones she loves in an all-or-nothing effort for survival. 
Can they stay alive long enough to blow the whistle on this unlikely perpetrator?

Rojuun (Willden Trilogy Book 1) by John H. Carroll

Ryallon is a vast world with enormous forests, great mountain ranges, and vast oceans. Large human populations live on a few of the continents, but many areas of the world are unexplored and filled with magical creatures of all sorts. It is in this magical world that our story occurs.
Tathan left home at the age of fifteen in order to travel the world and live a life of adventure. Fourteen years later, he has come home to the valley where he was raised. He found adventure along the way, but it hadn’t always been the sort of adventure one dreamed of; with dragons, maidens, knights and treasure. Most of it was much darker; with dark alleys, knives, and a primal struggle for life at the lowest levels.
Liselle is a young woman of seventeen years whose parents wish her to marry soon. However, marriage is the last thing on her mind when she has never seen anything beyond the lonely valley where she lives. Liselle spends much of her time talking to the flowers about how she feels and they listen to her intently.
Vevin is something else entirely. His home was recently stolen from him by a terrible creature who hurt him badly. Now he is looking for a new home. Preferably something with a large area to keep his treasure . . . once he acquires some.
Sir Danth is the greatest of the Knights of Morhain. Of course he’s the only Knight of Morhain still alive . . . sort of alive . . . only different.
Rumors are spreading about a new race called “Rojuun”, who appeared from the depths of the mountains eight hundred years ago with the intention of taking over the world. It is their understanding that humans exist to serve them. They are a bit disappointed that the humans don’t seem to be aware of that fact.
The companions are charged with finding out more about this race of Rojuun. Will they be entranced by beautiful music flowing through the air, or will they die a horrible death in the darkest depths of the world?

An Epitaph For Coyote by Bryan R. Dennis

Here lies Henry Pluck -- corporate cubicle rat and frequenter of nursing homes. A perfectionist at work and an eater of sandwiches, he drove an import, lived alone in a box, and was virtually indistinguishable from any other office drone in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So might have read the inscription on his gravestone.

But when Henry encounters Rosa Santana, an unconventional and perplexing young woman from the desert, he learns what a defunct building feels like before a wrecking ball.

This is a portrait of a lonely man coming to terms with his flawed interpretation of perfection.  For the world is not what Henry thinks it is, and as he’ll soon discover, neither is Rosa. This is the wild, mysterious world of 4,000 year old movies, cosmic irony, predators, and prey.

This is the American Dream, just before its pants fell down.

Ditched Again by Stacey Joy Netzel

Summer Clark:  Yes, I’m excited for my ten year class reunion—I flew all the way from Florida to Wisconsin so I could rub my success in Josh Nelson’s face.  I know it sounds vindictive, but the jerk ditched me at the Snowball dance, left me to find my own ride home, and never apologized.  He’s got it coming…if I can get a tow truck to come out in this freak May snowstorm and pull my rental car out of the ditch.


Josh Nelson:  No, I’m not looking forward to the reunion.  Just hearing the name Summer Clark brings back memories of a night I buried long ago and never talked about again.  Seeing her means skirting the truth while trying to deliver a way-too-late apology.  No, with this storm, I think I’ll head home…as soon as I help this car sunk in the ditch.

Clearly, there are two sides to every story.

Please enjoy this excerpt from Ditched Again:

A thick wedge of slush pulled my rental car into the center of the road, jolting me back into the here and now.  I struggled with the wheel and tried to discern the gravel shoulder on the right side through the heavy curtain of wet, blowing snow.  Headlights cut through the gloom.  The sight of a huge black pickup heading straight toward me catapulted my heart up into my throat.

I wrenched the wheel to the right.  Slop from the truck’s tires slapped onto my windshield.  The wipers swished it away, but I barely had time to be thankful I’d made it past the large vehicle before my right tires were sucked in by the mucky shoulder.  Cranking the wheel back to the left only dug me deeper as my rental lurched down the embankment and then slid to an abrupt stop.  Muddy slush splattered in all directions.

I took a deep breath, assured myself I was unharmed, and leaned my head back against my seat with a low groan.  Gotta love Wisconsin.  Truthfully, I was envisioning the warm, sandy beach only minutes from my apartment.

A knock on my driver’s side window made me jump.  Through the fogged glass a tall figure motioned for me to roll down my window and I thumbed the power button.

“Are you okay?” the man asked.

“Um…I think so,” I replied.  Then I lifted my gaze and sucked in a stunned breath.

Josh Nelsen.

Reticence of Ravens by M. M. Gornell

Time and events have turned Hubert James Champion III into a morose man trying for the last year to escape into California’s Mojave Desert—somewhere a little north of Route 66 on the way to Arizona. No longer a practicing psychologist and FBI collaborator, Hugh now owns Joey’s mini-mart, a half-defunct gas station with no gas, no supplies, and little food for customers. Opening hours variable.
He has become a man hiding out from the world, and himself—trying to seek redemption among the creosote and Palo Verde trees. His main companions these days are an aged desert dog, and the unkindness of the sometimes raucous, but usually reticent ravens.
But Hugh soon senses that he can’t escape—especially when a “special” young woman with red Medusa-like hair, is brought to him one Sunday evening covered in her father's blood. Turner Jackson has been murdered, and LoraLee Jackson is the main suspect. In quick order, Hugh is drawn into proving LoraLee’s innocence by both locals and unwanted East Coast intruders. Add the sudden appearance of LoraLee’s previously unknown brother, a bulldog FBI agent with an agenda of his own, and Hugh’s cousin Della’s love-sick ex-husband—not to mention multiple shootings, exploding drug-labs, and most importantly, Hugh’s past demons rearing their ugly heads once again.
No, Hugh cannot escape having to find a murderer—or his own past.

And when she meets Jean-Louis, vampire and co-worker, she's a goner. 

The Kandesky vampire family rose in Hungary centuries ago. They gave up violence and murder to make a killing on the world's commodities markets and with that beginning they built SNAP, an international celebrity multimedia empire. Now cultured...and having found food substitutes for killing...they’ve cornered the world market for celebrity and gossip journalism.

They haven't fully left the past behind. Their Hungarian neighbors and rival vampire clan, the Huszars, are starting to ramp up attacks, maybe looking to start a war to take over all the Kandeskys have built.

Maxie believes she's found her ultimate career. She doesn't realize that she's found a family feud like none other, a centuries-old rivalry between vampire families, with her as the linchpin. Bells ring with Jean-Louis, but she doesn’t realize they’re alarm sirens until she learns that Jean-Louis is second in command of the Kandeskys...but by then it's too late.

African Odyssey by Theodore P. Druch


The author and his wife, expecting a pleasant weekend at Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, are told that they will not be allowed to re-enter Kenya to return to their Nairobi apartment until they have left East Africa, a loose political conglomeration.
Thus begins a month-long adventure that takes them to Victoria Falls, in the heart of Africa, to fabled Zanzibar island in the Arabian Sea, and on a thrill-packed jeep safari in the Serengeti.
Along the way, they learn a great deal about Africa.  Its wild natural beauty, the hardships suffered by its people under corrupt governments, and the equally corrupt "religious" establishments.
African Odyssey is an Autobiography
