    I've got one too for just $.99 at Amazon and Smashwords! It's a YA Science Fiction and Fantasy novel (a little over 71,000 word).

    Meet my Main Character:
    Do you remember how horrified you were about the idea of attending high school? I remember ticking off those last miserable days of my summer vacation following my eighth grade year.  Maybe you don’t, maybe you were one of 'those people.'  You know who I’m talking about, people like Melissa Small, the distinguished District Attorney, Larry Small’s daughter, popular, gorgeous... and absolutely terrifying to someone like me, Liv Glyn. No, I am far from measuring up to the standards required to make Melissa’s crowd. I’m not even close.  I’m just a simple man’s daughter, mostly tolerated by my peers with average looks.  If this isn’t depressing enough for you, stay tuned, it gets worse.  I was commanded with Spirit at birth by the Great Spirit, Hala.  I know, it sounds crazy but it’s true.  If you think it's difficult being a teenager, try being a teenager who was born destined to save the world from soul sucking Daevas and their mutant progeny Aengels.  There are four of us.  My companions of Spirit are Laith, Brayan and Meena.  Melissa Small is Laith’s step sister and she is always meddling where she doesn’t belong, further complicating our lives.  To make matters even worse, my best friend Jedd is apparently aware of things that are typically undetectable to ordinary humans.  So, I have to lie to Jedd, the boy who has been my constant standby since the third grade, to shield him from the horrible and very dangerous truth.  Did I mention that I think I’m falling in love with him?  The term awkward doesn’t even begin to cover it, trust me. Welcome to the mess that is my life. 

    You can click on the links in my sig to go to Amazon and Smashwords.

    My .99 tale, The Stone.

    Do you know Trent? Are you like Trent? Do you know a Trent?

    Only one way to answer those three questions

    I was just at the dollar store, and found reusable hand warmers for just $0.99! You snap 'em, use 'em, and boil 'em. They're way cool, and cost alot less than the disposable hand warmers.

    Another way to keep warm for the same price and alot less effort is to download my debut romantic suspense novel. It's a fast-paced, exciting read, that will get your heart racing with no effort at all! Think of a Canuck John Grisham rendez-vous with Gemma Halliday.

    Here's the blurb:

    Jillian Kendall, Centurotechs corporate attorney, hopes that the strange events which have been turning her formerly peaceful life upside-down since she arrived in Calgary, Alberta, are a product of her over-active imagination. But as she implements the merger between Centurotech and Hunter Electronics, she is drawn into the web of deceit that has been spun around her. There is only one way out, and it involves asking Code Hunter, founder of Hunter Electronics and childhood friend, for help. The problem is that Jillian is not certain that he can be trusted. And he is just as wary of her!

    Here's the best part: Black & White is a full-length novel, and is on sale at  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HO63UG for only 99 cents!

    May all your endings be happy!

    Just lowered to a buck! The Betrayal of Times of Peace and Prosperity!



    Description:
    Andy does just enough to get by, sometimes less. Between hits from the bong, hallucinogenic shrooms, and eating dog food, Andy contemplates his friends suicide attempts, his final days of college assignments, and the importance of his education to his dismal-looking future. By his side are Macbeth-like witches, his meek roomate, and an out-of-date professor. And, of course, a girl.

    Edgy and darkly humorous but, like all the best literature, it still keeps an undercurrent of seriousness.

    About the Author:
    Alex Kudera has survived fifteen years of teaching overloads but in some circles is better known for his mysterious injuries. He has bussed dishes and tutored English in two countries, and Fight for Your Long Day, his first novel, was drafted in a walk-in closet during a summer in Seoul, South Korea. A lifelong Philadelphian until fall 2007, Alex currently teaches literature and writing at Clemson University in South Carolina.

    In the small southern town of Belvoir near the end of the Civil War, slaves are missing. Runaways, or so everyone thinks...until the bodies start turning up.

    For only 0.99, this paranormal suspense novel will take you to a place in American Civil War history that you didn't know existed. A serial killer. Superstition. Revenge. Only the beginning.

    Celebrity Space is 1 cent less than a buck  ;D

    "Set in the not too distant future, a worker hopes that his new job at the spaceport will allow him to get his life back on track. While taking passengers to the space hotel "Moonwalk", a collision with an unknown object brings his dreams... and possibly his life... to a screeching halt."

    Thanks for the chance to post about this.

    As an introductory price for the month of March, I reduced the price of Kissing Kelli (A Texas Legacy Romantic Comedy) to $.99.  It's a romantic comedy.

    When rodeo champion Bobby Gray Nelson meets feisty Kelli Palmer, he is determined to woo this woman who might be his soul mate. Kelli's sister claims dibs on this handsome cowboy, so Kelli reins in her attraction. Losing is not an option for Bobby Gray. He comes up with a plan to place his brand on Kelli's heart.

    Would you buy Circle City Blues for a dollar? 

    Circle City Blues is the story of a man who thought his life was perfect.  Granted, Mac didn't enjoy his job, but it did mean he spent his days and nights with the love of his life at his side.  But then it stopped being perfect.  The love of his life announced out in the middle of the country that she was leaving him for another man - a man she knew only from a role playing game.  After dropping her off at his Middle American 'castle', Mac met up with the closest thing they had to best friends on the road; a former drag queen and his boyfriend, fellow long haul drivers, who prepared him for the seven stages of grief ahead.

    Susan takes you along on this four lane therapy session lightly.  This is not a heavy book, it is not a sad book, it is a deftly written look at loss and recovery.  Told from Mac's point of view (and believably), it is funny and compassionate.  The reader is allowed to be angry, to share in Mac's muddled efforts at gallantry, heroism, even hopelessness.  You want to believe there is a happy ending at the next exit.  The love of his life reappears often enough to detour him, and the reader is allowed to dislike her, pity her but not laugh at her.  There are no cardboard characters, no 'usual suspects'.  It reads as swift as a big rig in the fast lane, takes turns on two wheels, and eventually rolls into its destination on time.

    And, right now it's $.99!

    I was just at the Dollar store, and guess what I found this time? That's right! A coat for my faithful and super-cute puppy, Charles. It was only a loonie, and Charlie is gonna love it.

    Here's something that the romance/adrenaline/bargain/kindle addicts can buy for a dollar: Black & White, my debut romantic suspense novel.

    Think of it as a way to keep you warm for the same price I paid to keep Charles warm. It's a fast-paced, exciting read, that will get your heart racing! Think of a Canuck John Grisham rendez-vous with Gemma Halliday.

    Here's the blurb:

    Jillian Kendall, Centurotechs corporate attorney, hopes that the strange events which have been turning her formerly peaceful life upside-down since she arrived in Calgary, Alberta, are a product of her over-active imagination. But as she implements the merger between Centurotech and Hunter Electronics, she is drawn into the web of deceit that has been spun around her. There is only one way out, and it involves asking Code Hunter, founder of Hunter Electronics and childhood friend, for help. The problem is that Jillian is not certain that he can be trusted. And he is just as wary of her!

    Go to http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HO63UG. Remember, it's only 99 cents!

    My new novel, "Stalk" has been priced at just 99 cents for Kindle.

    The main characters, a bounty hunting trio, consists of a rugged guy - Lee Bodkin, an ex-Olympic style wrestler and street tough - his Wolf-Borzoi tracking dog, Sheba, and biathlete/sniper Gladdis Montrose. She's the precision to her partner's crudeness, the strategy to his forcefulness. When it comes time to drop the hammer on a villain, she's all ice and perfection, while he's brutality and perfection.

    Don't confuse this group with Dog the Bounty Hunter or other urban operators; Bodkin, Montrose, and Sheba can plow into the swamps and the wilderness to track down their targets.

    Back Cover: "Lee Bodkin crafts and sells historic archery weapons: beautiful, deadly marvels of glistening woodwork. Business is booming, but his is not the only thriving enterprise on the outskirts of the bustling city. Contaminating the community is one very crafty, ruthless drug dealer, plying his trade to make the area a meth-addicted wasteland. He hates competition, and he hates Bodkin.

    Unknown to the menace, Bodkin is not just a small business owner. He's a former world-class wrestler and current search-and-rescue specialist...one the government unofficially hires as a seek-and-destroy tool. Bodkin long ago stacked the odds in his favor, partnering with biathlete and wilderness survival expert - and deadeye sniper - Gladdis Montrose. Add to the mix his loyal and ferocious dog Sheba, the trio makes a nearly unstoppable team.

    But the team will soon be put to the test. Because in the surrounding countryside, both pets and people have been disappearing. And to Bodkin it soon becomes crystal clear: a new presence has arrived. Something big...and hungry."

    In print, it's 174 pages. Moves as fast as I could make it! In Kindle format, just $0.99 .

    Take a look. Thanks! - P.J. Hafner
