Today I'm delighted to present a new romantic thriller bundle, "Last Hero Standing". It's a collection of stories written by an assortment of authors to benefit fellow author Pamela Clare, who is undergoing treatment for cancer. The proceeds from the book go to her fund for medical expenses. Regular readers of the blog know that my family had been touched multiple times by cancer so I am always willing to do posts that could help someone with cancer.

I'm reading a geek erotic romance, "Always the Quiet Ones", by Cassandra Carr. The quote is from 60%  in the ebook.I had to go forward so as to skip the detailed sex scene.

"Really?"  She unleashed a brilliant smile and his breath caught. The feeling in his chest when she smiled at him had to be more than simple lust. He shook his head a little to clear it.

EXCLUSIVE COVER REVEAL! Mystery Night by Krista D. Ball

Ball's Spirit Caller series is one of my favorites; fresh urban fantasy set in Newfoundland Canada with Ball's trademark dry wit, it makes me think, laugh, and cry. Book number 4, Mystery Night, is scheduled to release on December 15th. Buy links will be available December 1st so keep your eyes open.

In the fourth installment of the Spirit Caller series, Rachel finds herself investigating a ghost's murder and his accusations cause her to dig into the pasts of the dead and the living to uncover the truth. Only, all roads lead back to the same horrible place: her elderly neighbour's doorstep.

Today, My Words and Pages and I have an exclusive cover reveal for of Mystery Night. I hope you like it as much as I do!

New Mira Grant Book!

Subterranean Press announced that they are taking pre-orders for the new story they are publishing, "Rolling in the Deep" by Mira Grant. It's scheduled to be published next year, in April 2015. It will be a limited edition, with a run of 1000 signed and numbered hardcover editions, for $40US.

The blurb ~

When the Imagine Network commissioned a documentary on mermaids, to be filmed from the cruise ship Atargatis, they expected what they had always received before: an assortment of eyewitness reports that proved nothing, some footage that proved even less, and the kind of ratings that only came from peddling imaginary creatures to the masses.

They didn't expect actual mermaids. They certainly didn't expect those mermaids to have teeth.

This is the story of the Atargatis, lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy. Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the bathypelagic zone in the Mariana Trench…and the depths are very good at keeping secrets.

I don't love the cover but it's eye-catching; I want to know what's on her face, or is that her face? And the background color is lovely. It's Mira Grant so I know the story will be good.

Go here to pre-order.

What do you think, will you order a copy?

He looks so serious and intent as he cleans his claws. When I trim his claws with the clipper, I have to bribe him with treats; one treat per paw.

When the the leader of a powerful cult kidnaps the woman Holt loves, he teams up with his best friend to save her from a fate worse than death.

Fans of Jonathan Maberry's ROT & RUIN and AMC's hit series, The Walking Dead will devour Hill's action ­packed take on the Zombie genre. DEAD NEW WORLD is now available at Amazon and Curiosity Quills. Get to know more about Ryan in this exclusive letter to readers.


Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.

Before the world fell into chaos, the undead existed only in the imagination. Now, more of them walk the earth than living. Zombies move about freely, while humans entomb themselves inside concrete barricades to stay alive.

All that, while the leader of a powerful cult - known only as Reverend - becomes the next threat to the rebuilding United States. Believing zombies to be God’s latest creation, making humanity obsolete, he wants to give every man, woman, and child the chance to become one. With his combined army of humans and zombies, he may well get his wish.

Best friends Holt and Ambrose went up against the Reverend once. Holt lost a foot and a zombie bit Ambrose…though he survived the virus, only to become a human-zombie hybrid, reviled by the living and unwelcome among the dead. When the Reverend kidnaps the woman Holt loves, the race is on to save her from a fate worse than death.
