May is a terrific month in that we get to celebrate the contributions of two really important groups of people: mothers and the men and women who have done service for our country. There’s no doubt that both groups make our lives better on many different levels.

Now that Mother’s Day has passed, we’re focusing our eye on titles having to do with the military and military history.

We’ve updated our store so that now you can purchase titles and send them directly to your Kindle or Nook. You can also purchase a title and gift it to someone else.

The short stories listed below are on sale exclusively at The Untreed Reads Store. The full-lengths are also on sale in Apple’s iBookstore, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. However, we hope you’ll choose to buy directly from our store (http://store.untreedreads.com/), as this results in much better royalties for our authors when you do.

Here are the titles that are 40% off through May 31st:

A World Ago: A Navy Man’s Letters Home (1954-1956) by Dorien Grey
Autobiography
$4.99, on sale for $2.99
It’s not often one has the chance to become 20 again…

A World Ago chronicles, through one young man’s journal and vivid letters to his parents, his life, adventures, and experiences at a magical time. It follows him from being a Naval Aviation Cadet to becoming a “regular” sailor aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga on an eight-month tour of duty in the politically tense Mediterranean Sea.

Learn to fly a plane, to soar, alone, through a valley of clouds, experience a narrow escape from death on a night training flight, and receive the continent of Europe as a 21st birthday gift. Climb down into the crater of Mt. Vesuvius, visit Paris, Cannes, Athens, Beirut, Valencia, Istanbul and places in-between; wander the streets of Pompeii, have your picture taken on a fallen column on the Acropolis, ride bicycles on the Island of Rhodes, experience daily life aboard an aircraft carrier during the height of the cold war—all in the company and through the eyes of a young will-be-writer coming of age with the help of the United States Navy.

A World Ago is a rare glimpse into the personal and private world of a young man on the verge of experiencing everything the world has to offer—and discovering a lot about himself in the process.

Due to Enemy Action by Stephen Puleo
History
$6.99, on sale for $4.19
Due to Enemy Action tells for the first time a World War II story that spans generations and straddles two centuries, a story that begins with the dramatic Battle of the Atlantic in the 1940s and doesn’t conclude until an emotional Purple Heart ceremony in 2002. Based on previously classified government documents, military records, personal interviews, and letters between crew members and their families, this is the saga of the courageous survival of ordinary sailors when their ship was torpedoed and their shipmates were killed on April 23, 1945, and the memories that haunted them after the U.S. Navy buried the truth at war’s end. It is the story of a small subchaser, the Eagle 56, caught in the crosshairs of a German U-boat, the U-853, whose brazen commander doomed his own crew in a desperate, last-ditch attempt to record final kills before his country’s imminent defeat. And it is the account of how one man, Paul M. Lawton, embarked on an unrelenting quest for the truth and changed naval history.

Author Stephen Puleo draws from extensive personal interviews with all the major players, including the three living survivors (and a fourth who emerged as the book went to press); a senior U.S. naval archivist who worked with German historians after the war to catalog U-boat movements; and the son of the man who commanded America’s sub-tracking “Secret Room” during the war. Due to Enemy Action also describes the final chapter in the Battle of the Atlantic, tracing the epic struggle that began with shocking U-boat attacks against hundreds of defenseless merchant ships off American shores in 1942 and ended with the sinking of the Eagle 56, the last American warship sunk by a German U-boat.

William B. Travis (The Lone Star Legends Series) by Robert E. Hollmann
Young Readers/History
$2.99, on sale for $1.79
William Barrett Travis was the commanding officer of the troops who defended the Alamo in 1836. He is best known for drawing a line in the sand and asking the men to cross the line and fight with him for Texas independence. Now you can hear the story of Colonel Travis told by the other member of that famous moment in Texas history, Trusty, the sword that drew the line in the sand. Join Trusty and Colonel Travis as they come to Texas and become involved in the exciting events leading to the Texas Revolution.

Ride with them to San Antonio as they join the small band of brave men defending a run-down old mission called the Alamo. Stand with them for thirteen days as they defend the Alamo from the attacks of Santa Anna’s army. Fight with them during the final assault when the men of the Alamo passed from history into legend.

This book is part of The Lone Star Legends, a series of historical fiction aimed at younger readers.

The O’Quinn Fights: Basement Brawl by Robert Evans
The O’Quinn Fights: Foul Fight with a Pit Viper by Robert Evans
Military Fiction/MMA Fiction
$.99 each, on sale for $0.59 each

Basement Brawl: In this first outing of a new short story series by Staff Sergeant Robert Evans, Sergeant O’Quinn finds himself battling in an underground mixed martial arts fight in Iraq. Is the fight really just two men battling, or is it a setup for something far more dangerous for the American soldiers involved?

Foul Fight with a Pit Viper: Things go awry from the moment Staff Sergeant Mickey O’Quinn arrives in Qatar. SSG O’Quinn, the brawling mixed martial arts fighter from the 4th Infantry Division, finds himself going from rescuing a frightened young American woman to landing in the middle of the toughest and deadliest underground MMA bout of his life. Will O’Quinn win the fight and the girl? Or has he finally taken on too much?

The Book Bazaar / 25% Off All Humor Titles Throughout April!
« on: April 04, 2012, 02:18:17 pm »


In these days of unemployment, stock market rollercoaster rides, plague, vermin and pestilence (not to mention stray asteroids), let’s face it…we all need a good laugh.

Fortunately, April is National Humor Month, and that gives us a good excuse to discount all of our humorous fiction and nonfiction titles and give the world a good chuckle. Through April 30th, head on over to The Untreed Reads Store at http://store.untreedreads.com (heck, save time and click http://store.untreedreads.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=305&sort=20a&page=1 to go right to the humor section) and save 25% off all of the titles in the sale. Most are only $0.74, and if that price doesn’t put a smile on your face we’re pretty sure that grumpy shape you’re doing with your mouth is going to stick that way.

The full-length works that are part of this promotion are also discounted at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The short stories that are part of this promotion are only on sale at The Untreed Reads Store, as Amazon and Barnes and Noble won’t let us price below $0.99. Then again, you only get one format of your purchase through those guys and you get FIVE formats from us. Paying more for only one format? We find that pretty funny ourselves.

The Book Bazaar / 30% OFF ALL DECEMBER HOLIDAY TITLES
« on: December 08, 2011, 12:26:22 pm »


Untreed Reads is helping you celebrate the holidays by discounting titles! Merry murder? We have it! Yuletide family drama? We have it too! Come find ways to survive the holiday spirit and save without having to face the hordes of seasonal shoppers:

http://store.untreedreads.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=238

Every day through December 23rd one random title will be half off through The Untreed Reads Store.

We've also dropped the price on three books that take a sideways look at spirituality:

The Genesis One Code by Daniel Friedmann

Were the heavens and the earth created 6,000 years ago, as the Bible suggests? Or did the universe expand into existence nearly 14 billion years ago from a spontaneous "Big Bang"? Both dates cannot be right - or can they?

Imagine that there were some medieval manuscripts, written eight hundred years ago, that could help us decipher Genesis to pinpoint exactly when the universe began, as identified by our most up-to-date cosmological theories. Further, suppose that these same manuscripts could help us extract from Genesis the timelines for the development of life on Earth, precisely as identified by the latest scientific evidence from the fossil record.

The Genesis One Code offers a careful examination of the relationship between scientific theory and biblical teaching. The book targets the origins debate from a fresh perspective informed by scientific and spiritual research.

This exploration demonstrates an alignment between the dates of key events described in Genesis 1 and 2 with those derived from scientific theory and observation. This alignment provides a compelling perspective deserving of thoughtful consideration.

Doxology by Tim Black

Rhett Butler, the runt of a litter of dachshunds, is born with magical healing powers. Working with his master he begins to heel various infirmities until the AMA learns about him and goes after him for actually healing patients. What was this dog? Why did he have such healing powers? Was he a dyslexic's version of God? Or was Jesus too busy walking around another Holy Land on some other planet and the best Earth could get was Christ's dog? Doxology attempts to answer such theological questions with a dachshund that makes Lassie look like a slow learner.

A whimsical and satiric short work from our Nibs literary line.

An Imperfect Miracle by Thomas L. Peters

Nathan Gray has trouble making friends, his alcoholic father ran out on him, his mother is preoccupied with work and finding a new husband and his dog Chewy has just died. So perhaps it's not surprising that Nate comes to believe that his beloved Chewy has returned from the dead to once again be his best friend. His mother is alarmed, but the therapist predicts that Nate will grow out of his habit of "seeing things" once he comes to grips with his emotional traumas.

But then, on his way to school, Nate stumbles upon what he can only describe as a miracle - a man seemingly healed of a fatal head wound by a smudge on an old, dingy concrete wall. Nate might be on to something that can't be attributed to his imagination, as many in his small industrial Pennsylvania town, quickly ascribe spiritual significance to the smudge, and healing powers too.

Some of the town's leading citizens decide to capitalize on the sudden influx of tourists by turning the smudge into a shrine and charging admission. Not everybody is on board with the notion that the miraculous has somehow intruded into their mundane routine, and Nathan soon finds himself at the center of a raging controversy. An Imperfect Miracle is a moving piece of literary fiction dealing with love, loss and one boy's attempts to find substance and clarity in a chaotic world.

We're also offering 30% titles to celebrate The Festival of Lights:

The Unleavened Truth by Darryl A. Forman

Sit down and have a cup of coffee (and eat something...you're looking a little thin), because oy vey does humorist Darryl A. Forman have something to tell you.

Join Darryl in this rollicking collection of essays covering everything from growing up Jewish to surgery to a secret love for Jon Stewart (ok, not so secret anymore). You'll encounter cruise ship travels gone awry and wry looks at relationships that have cruised. From dads that are rabbis to jobs that have gone bye-bye, Darryl puts her own unique spin on telling-it-like-it-is.

Or, as Darryl would say, laying out her 'notautobiographical' life story as The Unleavened Truth.

After the Auction by Linda Frank

Lily Kovner could not have dreamed that research for a magazine assignment would resurrect a searing memory from her childhood. A fleeting glimpse of a family treasure looted by the Nazis launches "Afikomen" - her quest for justice and restitution spanning three continents. Along the way threats, murder and the revelation of a diabolical secret deal thrust Lily onto an emotional rollercoaster further complicated by the thrill of new romance.

Hanukkah Gelt by T. Lee Harris

All antiquities photographer Josh Katzen wants to do is enjoy his Hanukkah reunion with Roz Eliahu. When the couple becomes involved with a murdered security guard and a stolen amulet, it becomes readily apparent that the Festival of Lights is about to become the most dangerous holiday he's ever had. A holiday short story from our Fingerprints line.

Barely into their teens, without homes, they dwell in neon shadows, the violent eddies of urban America. They trade their innocence for money, abuse their hopes, and then a monster comes…

One of the street kids and a man of the cloth form a desperate pact. Together, they will find the madman whose basement has become a chamber of horrors…
