Architects of Destiny (Cadicle #1): An Epic Space Opera Series, by Amy DuBoff. (Still free?)

"Arquitects of Destiny is the beginning of a series and acts as a prequel for it. As such the book is very dynamic, energetic and exciting. It presents the Tararian Universe using simple words and effective explanations. It's really easy to follow and despite being science fiction all the elements are understandable for all of us. Overall, Architects of Destiny is a fast, dynamic and complete sci-fi book that puts the bar high for the next books in the series. I can't wait to read more." -- Amazon Reviewer

Out of sight beyond Earth, the Taran empire spans the galaxy from its seat of power on Tararia.

Cris Sietinen was born with rare telekinetic gifts—abilities he refuses to ignore, regardless of the governing Priesthood's decrees. But, as heir to the most influential Dynasty on Tararia, only a stifled life of business and politics awaits him within the confines of his family's estate. Determined to be true to himself and explore the potential of his abilities, Cris leaves Tararia to begin a new life touring the stars.

When Cris unexpectedly receives an invitation to join the Tararian Selective Service (TSS), the only organization to offer an official telekinesis training program, a new future awaits. It's his dream opportunity to be among people like himself, free from the Priesthood and political objectives. Except, Cris' path was designed, and he's right where the Priesthood wants him.

Architects of Destiny is the first installment in the Cadicle series, a new space opera epic with elements of "Dune" and "Ender's Game." A fast-paced space adventure with intrigue, coming-of-age and romance, this short prequel is a prelude to the defining events in Tararia’s history in the ensuing years.

In the Dead of Winter, by Abbey Pen Baker. (Still free?)

"This book is a tour-de-force in technique. Pen Baker has mastered Conan Doyle's voice perfectly. If you believe in your heart that Sherlock lives, you can believe that this book was written by his daughter!" -- Amazon Reviewer

1918, Northampton, Massachusetts.

Faye Tullis and her friend, Rachel White, two students at Smith University, are arrested after attending a lively suffragette rally.

Things start to get out of hand, and the police arrive. The two girls are arrested, and spend the night in jail, where they meet a tall and imposing woman, who imperiously demands to be released.

When her freedom is denied, she suddenly and inexplicably falls ill…

Faye is therefore doubly surprised when she attends a class on logic the next morning to find this lady at the front of the class, introducing herself as ‘Dr. Myrl Adler Norton’, a professor of logic.

She astonishes the class with her ability to deduce personal information about them from the minutest details…

Rachel’s flat is broken into in suspicious circumstances. When Rachel called out to her landlady, Alyssa Dansen, a mysterious recluse, she only hears a strained voice in reply…

Myrl and Faye rush to the flat to investigate and the situation is far worse than they imagined… Alyssa Dansen is seen from the window, a ghostly figure, staring straight out ahead of her...

When they find her they realise someone has slit her throat, drained all her blood, and stuffed her with sawdust – and it is unclear how long she has been sitting, lifeless, at her window, staring out at the world with blank glass eyes.

Faye is soon swept up in Myrl’s plan to find the killer herself. However, the more she gets involved with Myrl, the more she finds there are troubling elements to her new friend’s personal life…

What is the terrible affliction that Myrl seems to suffer from? What is the real story behind Myrl’s parentage? And could the answer prove relevant to Myrl’s new found aptitude for detective work?

‘In the Dead of Winter’ is a gripping historical crime featuring Irene Adler’s daughter detective.

Praise for Abbey Pen Baker:

“The Great Detective as a woman? Yes, with all the quirks, foibles, and misanthropy, all the genius, and the darkness that runs through that remarkable mind. I look forward to more of Myrl Adler and her faithful Watson" – Laurie R. King.

“Abbey Pen Baker successfully creates a new world where a young woman detective embodies an equal amount of courage, curiosity, determination, and brains…An exciting plot, a refreshing main character, and precise and evocative language combine to offer us a fine read.” – Sena Jeter Naslund

“Baker juggles her large cast and their secrets dexterously….Recommended for readers who aren’t sick of the centenary glut of Holmes pastiches, and even for those who are’ – Kirkus Reviews.

Abbey Pen Baker is the great niece of Faye Martin Tullis. She divides her time between Yellow Springs, Ohio where she lives with children, animals and the title of Professor of English and New England, where she eats too much good food with good friends and collects rocks and sea glass on the coast of Maine. She is very busy editing the notes and previously published novels first penned by her great aunt.

Zombie Rock, by J. R. Cleveland. (Still free?)

"The character development is very smart and this is unlike any other "zombie" story I have either read previously, or seen on TV or in a movie. Kudos to Cleveland for making such an impactful first impression in a market of fiction that is pretty popular at the moment and seemingly difficult to penetrate. I look forward to his next novel and would recommend this comfortably to anyone! Even if you are not into "zombie". There are several very relatable "human" experiences in this gem." -- Amazon Reviewer

When Jack Gibson becomes infected with The Red Plague, turning him into a so-called Zombie, his life suddenly gets complicated. Kara, his cheerleader girlfriend, dumps him. Then, after a Zombie riot, his mother decides the city is too dangerous and drags him back to Osborne, the hick town where she grew up.

Things go from bad to worse as Jack learns the town is being run by Garret Sweeney, a psychotic preacher with the hots for his mother. As it turns out, the preacher has a few secrets of his own, and will stop at nothing to get his way... not even murder.

When Jack discovers that rock music helps him think more clearly, things start to look up for him and he even decides to help some of the other Zombies at his new school. But he can't seem to win for losing, because it only gets him in more hot water with Garret.

How long can Jack hide his secret?

Who can a Zombie trust?

Will he be able to stop Garret before it's too late?

Find out the answers to these questions and much, much more, as Jack struggles to hold on to his humanity and save the people he loves.
