FREE BOOK OF THE DAY

FANTASY

Madeline knew her life was strange, and not just because she could sense the emotions of others. Having people die by your hand on two separate occasions can make a girl question her very existence. Still, she never thought she’d wake up in a world straight out of Norse myth. A world where corpses reanimate all on their own . . . and she’s supposed to be their executioner.

A normal person would run screaming into the night, but there’s something about dark and alluring Alaric that’s giving Madeline pause, and it’s not the fact that he turns a little feline from time to time.

DEAL OF THE DAY

URBAN FANTASY

Bundled set of books 1-3 in Angela Roquet’s “Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc.” series.

Welcome to Limbo City, the capital of the afterlife, where deities of every faith mingle on the most modern playground this side of the grave.

Lana Harvey is an eighth generation reaper, a baby by Eternity standards. She’s been a low-risk soul harvester for three centuries, but her dead-end job finds a new lease on life when Grim drops a high-risk promotion in her lap. Lana doesn’t care for the Afterlife Council’s politics, but with her new assignment, she soon finds herself forging uneasy alliances with the movers and shakers of Eternity. These alliances turn Lana’s life upside down, doing everything from igniting her love life to attracting the attention of rebel forces looking to overthrow the council.

Lana would rather be having a beer at Purgatory Lounge with her best friend, the archangel Gabriel, but it looks like she has some demon ass-kicking and serious soul-searching to do first.

When Rania—the only female Palestinian police detective in the northern West Bank, as well as a young mother in a rural community where many believe women should not have such a dangerous career—discovers the body of a foreign woman on the edge of her village, no one seems to want her look too deeply into what’s happened. But she finds an ally in Chloe—a gay, Jewish-American peace worker with a camera and a big attitude—and together, with the help of an annoying Israeli policeman, they work to solve the murder. As they do, secrets about war crimes and Israel’s thriving sex trafficking trade begin to surface—and Rania finds everything she holds dear in jeopardy.

Fast-paced and intricately plotted, Murder Under The Bridge offers mystery lovers an intimate view of one of the most fraught political conflicts on the planet.

Is it the end of the world? Hell yes!
Lucifer, Prince of Darkness, is off to a rough start. He’s been plucked from Hell and dropped onto a rural Georgia highway. Naked. In the rain. And he’s about to be hit by a car. To make matters worse, Lucifer is being hunted by an agent of God who has the power to destroy him.
Barabbas is looking forward to the end of his journey. Gifted with immortality, he has spent 2,000 years searching for the fallen angels who waged war against Heaven. Sent to Earth from Hell one-by-one, Barabbas offers them all the same deal: rejoin the Kingdom of Heaven or perish forever.
Now, his final adversary has arrived and the hunt becomes something he never expected when Lucifer reveals himself to the world and uses the age of information to his advantage.
Before Barabbas can face off against Lucifer, he’ll have to handle the geriatric Horsemen of the Apocalypse, not to mention a zombie army. But with his vampire companion Kate, a motley group of NSA agents led by a 14-year old girl, and the Three Wise People, Barabbas might just stand a chance.

The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic “fug.” Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do.

Nita’s mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure. For a price, the bizarre crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker are willing to grant her a meeting with their mysterious benefactors, and thus a chance to procure the one thing with a chance to save her mother.
Free-Wrench follows Nita’s adventures in a steampunk world of airships and lunatics. Helping her in her journey are an eccentric crew of smugglers; the gruff Cap’n Mack, the simple but enthusiastic Lil and Coop, the arrogant marksman Gunner, the surly surgeon Butch, and the irritable mascot Wink. To survive and find what she seeks she’ll need to earn their trust, follow their rules, and meet face to face with the people who pull the strings of their society.

Interview with Writing Duo Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson

 

Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 5.35.07 PMWhat is your book’s genre or category?

Loretta and I write in several genres, but our main love is mystery. The Vanished Lady is a mystery with a touch of romance.

Can you describe the story in one or two sentences for our readers?

When Dana buys The Vanished Lady Inn, she discovers the place holds secrets, not only about a woman who vanished in the past—but the more recent disappearance of Amy Walden.

Tell us the story behind story. What influenced you to write it and how long did it take you?

We’ve always loved to travel to out of the way places to find inspiration for our novels. In Colorado we came upon many “painted lady” houses, which are Victorian homes trimmed in bright colors. From there, the plot developed, and the character of Dana, who dreams of restoring such a place, emerged. The book took us about a year to write, including the research.

Is there a part of you in any of the characters?

Loretta and I both are fascinated with historic homes from Southern mansions to Victorian inns and can’t pass up a tour of them. I think this aspect of our personalities is reflected in Dana.

Do you have more books planned?

We are always working on a new novel or short story.. Our current project is a book for our Jeff McQuede High Country Mystery Series, set in Wyoming. We also have plans to write another Ardis Cole archaeological mystery, and maybe a single title suspense.

Do you have a favorite book or piece of art that inspires you? Change to What authors have influenced you?
Loretta and I are both big fans of Tony Hillerman. We also enjoy Aaron Elkins and just about any good mystery.

How do you work together as co-authors?

We work by having a strong plot outline and dividing the book into chapters. We alternate the actual writing of chapters, then exchange them for the other to edit. In this way, we both of us have input into the entire book. This takes a lot of time, meetings and phone calls, but it is fun to work together.

How do you find the time to write?

We both write full time and dedicate a part of each day to writing.

How can readers find you online?

The Vanished Lady  Excerpt

“No telling what will be hiding behind those faded, blue flowers,” Dana exclaimed. “This house must be filled with many secrets.”
“I’m sure you’ll find the beauty that’s at present not revealed. Always look for beauty. That’s what I do.”
Logan’s dark eyes again drew her with their challenging depths, their sense of adventure. She wanted to share more of her ideas and plans with him, but he was already starting to the door.
“If you need anything, Dana, just let me know.”
“Thanks.” She followed Logan to the entrance, asking, conversationally, “Were you well-acquainted with the last owners, the Waldens?”
“Yes.” A shadow moved into his eyes. “I never thought they would actually let go of this inn.”
“They probably wanted to leave here because of their daughter.”
Obviously Logan didn’t want to talk about this. He quickly turned away, his voice becoming low and guarded. “Amy Walden has been gone for a little over two years. Vanished without a trace.”
“That’s the same thing that happened to Lelia Glenn so long ago,” Dana remarked. “What do you think happened to Amy?”
“No one knows.” He opened the front door. “I’d better be going.”
Dana stepped out on the porch, her foot catching on that loose floorboard. She would have fallen had not Logan reached out to steady her.
His strong hand remained for a while on her arm, and she felt the impact of his gaze.
“Good night, Dana.”
Logan started toward the jutting outline of the mountain, his shadowy form blending into an even greater darkness. She wondered if his path would take him across the bridge that spanned the wide creek.
The momentary enthusiasm that had flared while they were discussing the house had already begun to recede, replaced by a vague, but certain apprehension. A terrible happening had taken place here not too long ago. Dana felt forewarned, fearful, almost as if she were slated to be the inn’s third vanished lady.
