Resonance Book One : Birds Of Passage is now 99 cents.  At 473 pages for the print edition (or 140,000 words), that's just a fifth of a cent per page, or an astonishing seven ten-thousandths of a cent per word.  Now if that's not value I don't know what is.

Oh, and it's a dark-ish fantasy-ish YA-ish novel about young-ish people discovering they have super-ish powers in a world still rebuilding from an apocalyptic-ish event that occurred 150-ish years ago.  Ish.

    'The Abigail Affair' is still at $0.99 - approaching 10,000 sales at that price, so it seems to work for readers as well as me.

    Good morning everyone.  I wonder if I may throw my newest romantic suspense into the mix?

    BORROWED TIME is .99 cents and currently #35 on the Kindle Romantic Suspense list.

    An accident on a frozen highway brings two strangers together.

    Brian Morrison has no recollection of what placed him on that icy stretch hundreds of miles from home. In his line of business, memory loss was unacceptable and accountability was crucial.

    Upon her parents death, Emily Brennan became the sole guardian of her brilliant, yet eccentric brother. Her devotion to protect him from a world that shunned the abnormal made her do the unthinkable. She stole designs from National Marine Dynamicsand now she was on the run.

    Only an hour from the promise of safety, Emily witnesses the car behind her spin out of control on an icy stretch of highway. Fear dictated that she should flee, but the body slumped on the shoulder of the road appealed to her humanity.

    Emily and Brian are two strangers thrown together by an errant patch of ice. Would the truths of their identities tear them apart or would they unite in battle against an egomaniac that is threatening the safety of innocent civilians.

    CHINA ROSE is still .99, and seems to be having great success at that price, so I'm extending the sale period.  It made the bestseller list on Daily Cheap Reads for the month of Feb as well *s*  Romance, mystery, betrayal, deceit, murder...with a little swashing and buckling thrown in for good measure.

    (hmmm...being a techno-dweeb, I can't seem to upload the image here of the cover. oh well.)

    Oops.  I forgot to add that you can have a Hawaiian romance for .99 cents.  A LOT less than an airline ticket!  ;D

    ROGUE WAVE 

    U.S. Geological Survey expert, Nick McCord can not account for the destructive waves assaulting the Windward coast of Oahu. The only viable culprit is the new housing development, Manale Palms and its attractive contractor, Briana Holt.

    Try as he might to find blame with Briana and her site, the truth remains a mystery as yet another threatening wave attacks the coast. Now allies, Nick and Briana narrow in on the source of these anomalies and find themselves in a struggle to save the island coast and their very lives.

    Hi Carl--

    Gosh, your book looks fun. I used to love to read books like that aloud with my kids every night. 

    I've got my faux historical comedy on special for the month of March.

    Winner of the RWA "Great Expectations" and "Gotcha" contests, PRINCESS ROBIN, turns the Robin Hood legend upside down. Princess Robin is the secret daughter of King Richard, fighting injustice in merry olde England.  Campy and full of color and adventure, PRINCESS ROBIN is a romantic romp for only, yup, 99 cents through the end of March.

    Enjoy!

    Hi all, I'd like to let everyone know that my novel Tokyo Zero is now available at Amazon for just 99c. Click o teh cover image to check it out.



    One man goes to Tokyo to end the world. It goes fairly well.

They hide out on the fringes of Tokyo, taking care of the daily business of preparing for the apocalypse, until the foreigner's secret past starts to come to light and threaten their future dreams.

    "Horne writes in a lyrically jarring fashion that never quite releases the tension long enough for you to get your footing. Flashbacks and flashforwards zoom past like hurtling Tokyo trains, leaving you agreeably frazzled. " - TeleRead.com

    The White Tree is a big ol' fantasy novel. How big? 150,000 words. 150,000 words of what? Swordplay, jokes, and ruminations on the nature of ducks.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Four Years from Home is 99 and a top rated and selling KindleBook mystery.

    Here's a review (on amazon) from 2/25

    "I am a fan of murder mysteries and can pick loopholes and can guess killers. This is NOT a murder mystery, not a suspense novel, not....well, what it is, more importantly, is a coming of age, finding yourself tale woven into a psychological thriller. And it does not even feel like a thriller till the nagging voice in your head, which had been sensing that something is not what it seems, suddenly gets very loud.

    So, Tom Ryan is a self-confessed, happy-about-it bully and I instinctively disliked him. But his matter-of-fact, quirky, and unintentionally humorous first person accounts drew me in. That's where I think the writing wins me over. The characterization, all supposedly described and hence colored by Tom's perception about them, are delightful and deep. I wish I had more knowledge of 'Combat' to enjoy this more.

    As Harry and Tom's world merge and separate, along with their personalities, and lies become truths and vice versa, I almost skipped pages to get to the end.
    And the end, to a seasoned mystery-reader like me, was a revelation. It was something that was hovering in my sub-conscious but still packed a punch.

    Loved this book, recommended for people who can laugh at ordinary things presented with humor, loves to explore characters even when there is a suspense in the background, and mainly enjoy a good read."

    Dating My Vibrator (and other true fiction) is just .99 cents.

    Dating My Vibrator (and other true fiction) is a collection of nine true and almost true short stories all based (unfortunately) on my own experience. After nineteen years of marriage I was thrust into a brave new world of dating: online, offline, standing in line, listening to lines. And I have survived to tell these tales. Dating, divorce, desperationall that good stuff. CAUTION: if youre contemplating divorce, these stories may convince you to consider marriage counseling. If youre out there dating, chances are you will relate. OMG! Heres a scary thought: maybe youve met some of these guys. Names have been changed to protect the guilty. Joe Konrath gave it 5 stars and says, Pure Comedic Brilliance.
