Ryan Sean O'Reilly (ryanseanoreilly) | 10 comments FREE day on Amazon 10/27/12 for “Curious Anomalies".

The official book trailer is on Youtube here:

Curious Anomalies by Ryan Sean O'Reilly
My science fiction short story "Curious Anomalies" will be available FREE for Kindle on 10/27/12 at

Synopsis: “Rick Silvano, an anxious young geneticist, has gotten himself entangled with a violent, South American, drug-lord named Diego Peres. Rick’s talents have been enlisted by Peres to create genetically enhanced watchdogs, by combining common moustache bats with Africanized honeybees. Everything has gone smoothly for the last three years until now, the night before Peres is due to inspect his investment. Clive Pinkerman, who hosts a late-night, radio conspiracy show, announces on-air that he is going to break into the genetic laboratory to uncover a massive alien conspiracy he believes is housed there. Suddenly, Rick must juggle his time between stopping Clive, and making sure the experiment works so that the temperamental Peres will not be displeased.”

Bridget | 16 comments Free until Friday, humorous science fiction short story "Kidnapped by Aliens," by mother/daughter writing team Bridget McKenna and Marti McKenna.
Suppose you felt trapped in an unhappy marriage. Suppose you saw this ad in a newspaper...

"Have you ever wished your loved one could be kidnapped by aliens? Call 1-800-GOODBYE for more information. No salesmen will call."

If you're Guy Collier, well-meaning but luckless tech writer for a big Los Angeles software company, you might just pick up the phone and call. But that might only be the begining of your problems.

"Kidnapped by Aliens!" was originally published in June 1995 in Tomorrow SF, edited by Algis Budrys. It includes an essay by the authors, "Writing (and Rewriting) Kidnapped by Aliens!"

message 12: by Bridget (new)

Bridget | 16 comments Free until Friday, dark near-future science fiction short story "A Little Night Music," by Bridget McKenna.

Richie is a dealer, selling tickets on a steep drop to hopeless addiction. To music. His best friend Vince lives in poverty to support his craving for Mozart. Somewhere in L.A., a virtuoso chemist has targeted them for a brutal experiment. Can either of them survive it?

“Music and drugs have a connection that goes way back. In “A Little Night Music,” Bridget McKenna takes that connection and tightens it down until the words come to mean basically the same thing....” -Kim Mohan, Amazing Stories Magazine

Part of a GIVEAWAY campaign to drum up reviews and ratings for an old favourite of mine...

FREE on Amazon this week, 'From Man to Man' is a light hearted fantasy with an action packed punch.

‘I’ve traded my old enemies for just this one…’ The axe thundered home. ‘I miss the old ones.’

Every man has a past, none more so than Draven Reinhardt. Abandoning his old life to settle down as a villager, he struggles to fit in, let alone hold down a job. When opportunity offers the much needed coin, Draven is torn between a promise and a purpose.

But, what’s one last job if you’ve already got blood on your hands?
‘From Man to Man’ is the story of how one man can change – or not – for the best. Prequel to the upcoming novel ‘It Began With Ashes’, the short (6400 words) introduces the reader to a world of suspense, intrigue, and action.

Exclusive preview chapter from ‘It Began With Ashes’.

From Man to Man by D.E.M. Emrys

D.E.M. Emrys (d_e_m_emrys) | 16 comments I'm 'givingaway' free copies of my heroic-fantasy novel 'It Began With Ashes' in return for a review here on Goodreads and Amazon. If you're interested please leave a comment below.

Here's a quick rundown in blurb format:
Peace in Wroge came at a price.

The cost?


Wroge was divided by the Saive War. The Arneuton kingdom enslaved the Keltir clans into their invasion, and swept across the territory, converting and culling conscripting the weak, culling the strong. Five Years of war, the blood of four races, millions of deaths. The Arneut conquered. The Keltir were released from their imprisonment, but the Vikir and Narz were forever banished from Wroge's borders.

Draven fought for peace. He fought another man's war and paid for his freedom in blood. But even peace comes with its price. Taxes to another man's king. Draven's fight might have ended with the Saive War, but the struggle to afford safety for his family is far from over.

When the Vikir threaten Wroge's northern border they come with a debt of their own. And it's not taxes they're after. They come because of the Keltir's betrayal in the Saive War. They come from blood.

But Wroge's fate won't be decided by ageing warriors and old grudges. The lives of four young men, divided by peace, united by conflict, will shape the future of the war torn land.

'It Began With Ashes' is the story of how life's greatest struggle is to accept who you are - a tale of broken promises, bitter grudges, and brotherhoods bound in blood.

Lorinda Taylor (termitewriter) | 5 comments My 5-star science fiction novella Monster Is in the Eye of the Beholder is free on Smashwords today through Friday, July 5. Enter COUPON CODE XB86L at checkout. Good holiday reading!

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

If you're looking for a frightfully weird Halloween book, download a free Kindle edition of Joule and the Weather God on Amazon from October 29-31.

In worlds of make-believe, don’t believe everything you see.

Born glare blind, Joule Suzuki doesn’t see the post-apocalyptic worlds like most others. With her membrane-enhanced eyes, Joule sees the worlds as they are—a bloody mess. With a weather god hell-bent on demolishing her, a wavering godfather bent on controlling her, and an insatiable blood habit, Joule is always a hair’s breadth away from death. But as fate would have it, in the parallel worlds, good things are oftentimes closer than they appear.

Joule and the Weather God by Ronald McIsaac

Lorinda Taylor (termitewriter) | 5 comments In honor of the 2nd anniversary of its publication, the SF novella Monster Is in the Eye of the Beholder, by Lorinda J. Taylor, will be free through Dec. 14 with Smashwords coupon code QU36C. This book has mostly 5 or 4 star reviews.
"Three anthropologists make first contact with a species of bizarre intelligent lifeforms. Each team member reacts in a different way to their strangeness as the story builds toward a disturbing climax and a conclusion with an unsettling twist of perspective."

Ryan Sean O'Reilly (ryanseanoreilly) | 10 comments My new science fiction novelette called: "The One Who Turned Them On" will be FREE on 2/18/14 for Kindle at

Here is the video trailer:

The One Who Turned Them On (The Energy Scavengers II) by Ryan Sean O'Reilly

Synopsis: “On a planet exclusively populated by alien robots, machines struggle to find purpose after abandonment by their creators. Kairos, the highly intelligent and massive weather-machine, monitors the world with cold academic curiosity atop of the great canyon system. He cares only for storms and other significant meteorological events. While below, common worker-bots scavenge daily to find scraps of power that will allow them to subsist in this increasingly savage environment. The Body, a growing robot-collective, is slowly taking over the canyons and oppressing all those that resist its will. Viewing any free power source as a threat, The Body, moves to enlist Kairos in its quest to destroy a mythic, sky-deity who has been benevolently restoring power to injured and disabled machines. Only Ophis, an insignificant and crippled worker-bot, stands in the path of this nefarious task. Will Kairos look beyond his own self-interests, or will he too kow-tow to the collective?"

Series Overview: This is the second installment in a robot-themed series “The Energy Scavengers,” which tells the story exclusively through the eyes of machines. The works are interconnected but can stand on their own.

*** Available for free on 2/18/14 at Amazon ***

Thank you for your time.
