Paul Donovan | 26 comments Harold's life as an accountant was pretty boring, and he liked it that way. He and his best friend Connie had grown up together in a California sea side community in relative anonymity, but their lives would change forever when they decided to stop for dinner at Mr. Doshi's Chinese Take Out and Gift Emporium. Great personal tragedy, workplace espionage, and unbelievable destiny will rip them from their ho-hum lives and begin an adventure for the ages.

Simon Dunn (sighdone) | 18 comments Rotten Apple is a "noir masterpiece" that "will make you laugh out loud. Perfect!"

It's written by an Emmy Award winning comedy writer.

And I thoroughly recommend Murderson, a taut murder thriller that is gripping and brilliant.

I priced it that way to entice people to try the series (Calling Crow, Flight of the Crow, and Calling Crow Nation), but now it's time to price it at $2.99 like the others. I just raised the price at Smashwords but it will be a while before it exports that new price to B&N and other sellers.

Seb (SebKirby) | 24 comments Hi

Take No More by Seb Kirby

For James Blake, a single act turns his life upside down.

He comes home to find his wife, Julia, shot and bleeding. She dies in his arms.

The police are no help. He's sure they're trying to fit him up for the murder.

He checks Julia's messages and finds just one. It says 'help me'. It comes with a strange image of a woman being seduced. It's all he has to go on. That and the fact that someone is trying to kill him.

But he will find Julia's killers, no matter what it takes.

Praise for 'Take No More':

'This is action-packed from page one, and the reader is instantly thrust into murder, suspense, and intrigue.........The writing gives you the feel of actually being in Italy - you can taste and smell it. The plot is action-packed and a real page-turner........ I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great crime thriller! And fans of Harlan Coben and Simon Kernick will love it!'

'A cracking read.'

'This is an outstanding debut novel by Seb Kirby. He captivates the reader from the first page, and remains gripping and compelling throughout. I could not put this book down...'

'Take No More is my favorite kind of thriller.....'

'Take No More has a well crafted plot with a neat ironic twist at the end.....'

'Take No More' is fast-paced, 69,000 words, about 260 print pages.

Take No More is out now on Kindle at $2.99.

Tracy Bull | 2 comments E-version of my book "fragments" by Tracy Bull for only $1.99.
All 5-star reviews. Here's just one:
5.0 out of 5 stars Most Thought Provoking Book in Years!, May 9, 2011
By Joy - See all my reviewsThis review is from: fragments (Paperback)
Fragments is a must-read for anyone who loves books! It is by far the most thought-provoking book I've read in quite some time. While reading the words, you actually feel what the main character is feeling. You would never guess that this is a debut novel, as the words flow so brilliantly! As the story came to a close, I felt myself wanting more. It made me actually use my brain, which a lot of books today lack, and I was quite surprised with the ending - and it's very difficult to surprise me! I can't wait to see what else this author has planned!!

Eddie Stack | 9 comments The West
Seven short stories set in the West of Ireland. From the opening tale, "Time Passes," to the final story "Derramore," these pieces reveal the soul of a community-its hopes, dreams and schemes. In The West, fatalism and possibility run side by side, the Otherworld is as near as the Church. The double focus of the Irish.

With storyteller intimacy, Eddie Stack evokes life in a series of almost cinematic prose portraits of people, places and situations. The stories are smooth, each one remarkably different, but the click together to form a pattern. With its wit, originality and sensitivity, The West belongs in the best tradition of Irish writing.

"Variously fantastic, comic, elegiac and nostaligic, Mr. Stack's fiction is versatile and engaging...a vivid, compassionate, authentic voice...securing (him) a place in the celebrated tradition of his country's storytelling." New York Times Book Review

“There’s a genuinely wild and fugitive comic sence in these tales that puts one in mind of Myles na Gopaleen as much as the salt spume dam, George Makay Brown. Never sentimental, often funny, always accurate, this is pithy, finely tuned writing of a high order.” Robert Carver, Observer (UK)
The West$2.99 The West by Eddie Stack

Out of the Blue
These twelve stories by Irish writer Eddie Stack, recount the peculiar and amazing experiences that befall his native people, at home and abroad. In "Angels," Mr. Fine the eccentric chemist, reappears after a long hiatus and enchants the town with his violin. The dead arise to rewrite Irish history in "Ellie," when a recent immigrant to Ohio meets a widow long gone from Ireland. A donkey with an attitude hassles a small town in "Jack Ass Blues" and shakes the authority of Church and State. "Song for Angie" shuttles between Ireland and San Francisco, retracing through music, the lives of a church organist and her troubadour niece. In another tale, a foreign cabby ruffles local racists when he joins the town taxi rank. Love tests a champion Irish dancer in "Flying Visit," and the title story, "Out of the Blue," concerns of a mysterious funeral coming to Ireland from Chicago.

Surreal, naturalistic, cinematic, humorous and sometimes poignant: all styles intersect and play, often in a single tale. In this diverse and engaging collection, Eddie Stack takes us into worlds of magic and mystery, from which we emerge with a smile.

"Eddie Stack’s stories jet back and forth across the Atlantic, contrasting small town Ireland and big city US. Every time they land, the author seems to test the borderline of what might and might not be possible in downtown bars, crumbling dance halls and drizzly farms.
The result is a remarkably consistent collection of short stories.” Ian Wild, Southword

"This second collection of short stories by Eddie Stack has a wonderful sense of unreality, of weirdness among Irish characters and of downright fun." Irish Emigrant

Simple Twist of Fate
John and Mary Ross are titled Irish gentry with a large estate and a low profile. They have two daughters: Penny, a high-flying banker in Dublin, who has her eye on the family jewels; and the younger Maddy, an unmarried mother, gone eccentric since the birth of her child. Maddy and her son Sam live in the servants’ quarters beside Rossmount House and she caters to the needs of her parents as if atoning for her fall from grace. It is rumoured that the father of Maddy’s son is a monk.

Apart from Lady Rosse’s binges on vodka or gin, Rossmount House is a tranquil place with plenty relics of old decency. Nobody expected the tremors that began when Penny brought home her future husband, Basil Sutton. There was something about Basil that put everything out of kilter.

Simple Twist of Fate is a ‘flash-novel’ or a novelette. It has approx 13.3K words, and is set in 5 chapter.The story is narrated by Sam, grandson to Lord and Lady Ross.

Watcher's Web by Patty Jansen

Watcher's Web

Patty Jansen

Read sample chapter here:

She’s not your ordinary country girl, even though she might look like one. She casts webs of power, reading the feelings of living beings and telling them what to do. Nobody knows what causes it, least of all her. Her name is Jessica, but most people call her ‘freak’.
One fateful day, her ‘web’ connects with a stranger, and stray power causes the plane in which she’s travelling to crash in an alien world. An accident? The more she discovers about the world in which she has landed, the more she doubts it. She is a survivor from an ancient race that once travelled the stars. Her ancestors were powerful and dangerous, and it seems at least two people want her: the man who invades her mind, and the man who’s desperate to help her get back home. But Jessica grew up an Earth girl, and isn’t having any of this. She’ll pander to no one, thank you very much, even if her stubbornness enrages the tyrant race who hold the world in their grip.

My book should be down to $1.99 / £1.41 as soon as the price change goes through - it is first in a dark fantasy series (no vampires or werewolves though)and has had pretty decent reviews so far.

It is available from
as well as Amazon US & UK (but the links for those won't work)

Take No More by Seb Kirby

It's out now on Kindle at $2.99.

Here are some recent reviews:

'Wow! This is action-packed from page one, and the reader is instantly thrust into murder, suspense, and intrigue. James is just a normal guy who thinks he has a normal life. Until the murder of his wife. He's forced on a journey from the UK to Italy to find her killers, and finds himself in the midst of a powerful Italian family, the hunt for precious works of art, and danger at every turn. The writing gives you the feel of actually being in Italy - you can taste and smell it. The plot is action-packed and a real page-turner. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great crime thriller! And fans of Harlan Coben and Simon Kernick will love it!'

'This is an outstanding debut novel by Seb Kirby. He captivates the reader from the first page, and remains gripping and compelling throughout.I could not put this book down. Listed under Murder,Mystery and Thriller but so much more than that. The geography of London and Florence was handled very well to add richness to the novel, alongside the Authors' obvious love and knowledge of the art world .In addition to this,the reader is taken into the Italian underworld weaving a web of corruption,deceit,secrets and murder around the whole plot. If you enjoy a really good Thriller,in the style of Sidney Sheldon with extras, and are prepared to be kept on the edge of your seat throughout, this book is a definite must! I am eagerly awaiting the next novel.'

Marcin Wrona | 2 comments Pale Queen's Courtyard

It's normally $2.99, but I've marked it down to $0.99 until the end of June.


Kamvar, a soldier, has lost his way. Leonine, a thief and sorcerer, has forgotten that he had one to lose.

When the daughter of a High Priest finds herself exiled and hunted across the entirety of conquered Ekka, both men will remember who they are, and the country's invaders will learn that memories, unlike temples, are not so easily torn down.

Pale Queen's Courtyard is the first novel by Canadian author Marcin Wrona, and a finalist in SciFiNow's 2009 War of the Words.

Review blurb:

“Wrona’s style and voice is where he shines. It is a bit different than a majority of the books out there, but once you’re in, you’re hooked. His narratives craft a vivid, honest world. Aspiring authors could take notes on how to work with fictional societies, religions and politics without stopping to explain anything. He effortlessly adds in a story of magic and sorcery that is such a part of a believable world, you just might forget that it never really happened.” - Rainyofthedark
