From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jana DeLeon, the first book in the Miss Fortune mystery series.



It was a hell of a longshot…



CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever – in Sinful, Louisiana.



With a leak at the CIA and a price on her head by one of the world’s largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small, bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she’s determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms dealer out of play.



Unfortunately, she hasn’t even unpacked a suitcase before her newly-inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard. Thrust into the middle of a bayou murder mystery, Fortune teams up with a couple of seemingly-sweet old ladies whose looks completely belie their hold on the town. To top things off, the handsome local deputy is asking her too many questions. If she’s not careful, this investigation may blow her cover and get her killed.



Armed with her considerable skills and a group of old ladies referred to by locals as The Geritol Mafia, Fortune has no choice but to solve the murder…before it’s too late.

A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried. People are frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious.

Zed needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride and heads to his mom’s house for a lunch of begging, again.

But something is wrong. There’s blood in the foyer. His mother’s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed’s stepdad, Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan’s yellow teeth tear at Zed’s arm but Zed grabs a knife and stabs Dan, thirty-seven times, or so the police later say.

With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him.

After almost a century of peaceful exploration and colonization of space, the United Earth Space Force stumbles across a shockingly xenophobic alien race that has more and better armed ships and refuses all attempts at contact. As the outgunned Space Force is driven back in battle after battle in what appears to be a war of extermination, one officer experiences precognitive visions that help him blunt the enemy onslaught but he can't control or predict when they occur.
With the Senior Brass convinced that he's a tactical genius, he's given more and more responsibility and is terrified by the belief that Humanity's Fate will be determined by a battle with himself in overall command. This is Volume 1 of a military SF series about desperate space battles and the men, women and Artificial Intelligences, who fight and die in them.
The paperback version is now also available. If you don't see it above, click on my name or search under Amazon-books.
Excerpt:
The tactical situation was not good. SFE144 was heading away from the main body of the Task Force as were Jessica Cabrera’s 051, Raphael Dejanus’ 077, and Hiram LaRoche’s 153. Mbutu’s 098 and Bettencourt’s 102 squadrons were still close enough to the tanker squadron that they could be considered part of the main body of ships. Shiloh could tell that when ships from those two squadrons started actively scanning, a cluster of red triangles appeared at the Task Force’s 8 o’clock position at a surprisingly close range! Shiloh counted the red triangles. Twenty-eight! The hair on the back of his neck stood up. How did 28 enemy ships get this close this quickly? Something wasn’t right. He tried to find out where the Command Ship was in the cluster of green hexagons that represented friendly ships. The Command Ship’s hexagon should have been a brighter green. Shiloh couldn’t find it and suddenly realized that the reason he couldn’t find it was because it wasn’t there! He also realized that some of his squadron’s COs were trying to talk to him.

“144 ships standby! I’m going to try to reestablish communications with the Task Force Leader!” Turning to the Comm Tech, he said. “See if you can raise the Valley Forge again!” While he was waiting for the results of that effort, Chenko rushed onto the Bridge. Shiloh saw her, nodded and pointed to the Helm Station saying.

“XO, take the Con. Lt. Verlander, the XO will be conning the ship from your station! Remain on the Bridge in case I need you! I’ll retain squadron command!” Turning back to the Comm Tech, he said. “Any word from Task Force Leader?” The answer surprised him.

“Sir! I have Yellowjacket’s CO on the line.” Shiloh nodded to him and heard the com channel switch over to a static filled line.

“Shiloh! Valley Forge has been shot to pieces! We were close enough to see it visually on our screens! Who’s in command of the Task Force now?” Shiloh thought fast.

“It’s Mbutu! Does he know about Yakamura?”

“Don’t know! Hanson! Contact Mbutu’s frigate. Notify him that Yakamura’s gone and he’s in command now! Victor, you still there?” Shiloh nodded even though Frank Rolen couldn’t see him.

“Yes, Frank. I’m still here. My squadron is still shaking down to Battle Stations! What’s your squadron’s status?”

“Not good. Dragonfly’s lost all power! Firefly’s not maneuvering anymore either and we can’t raise her! My ship’s suffered a glancing hit! We’re losing fuel and atmosphere but we’re still underway! I want to jump my ships outta here but I also don’t want to jump the gun if Yaka…Mbutu has other plans! Jesus, Victor, where did these bastards come from?”

“I don’t know, Frank, but you can’t afford to wait for Mbutu to give you permission to jump. If your tankers are taken out, NONE of us will get back home! My advice is jump your ships away from here right now on your current heading then dogleg it to the rendezvous point!”

“SHIT, VICTOR! Some of my ships still haven’t recovered their shuttles yet! We can’t leav

The Cowboy's E-Mail Order Bride
By Cora Seton
(256)
Free
***ON SALE!!! - Regular Price $3.99***

Ethan Cruz should be mending fences on his Montana ranch, but instead he's driving to the Chance Creek, Montana, airport - to pick up the bride he didn't know he had. This latest salvo in his ongoing practical joke battle with his best friend, Rob Matheson, has gone too far, and Ethan plans to send his "bride" right back home, then get busy plotting his revenge. One look at Autumn Leeds changes his mind, however. Perhaps he needs a bride, after all. A breathtakingly beautiful city bride.

Autumn Leeds needs a story - fast - or she's going to lose her lucrative contract with CityPretty Magazine, so when she sees the crazy video plea for a modern mail-order bride for a cowboy, it sounds like the story of the century. Making a video of her own, she casts herself as the perfect mail-order bride for a rancher, but when she finally reaches Montana, she's surprised to find Ethan's the perfect cowboy husband-to-be. Against her better judgment, her plan to keep her handsome groom at arm's length disintegrates into a night of passion spent in his arms.

Ethan knows he can't keep playing this game - he has to come clean with Autumn and tell her the truth; about the practical joke and about the state of his ranch. He's about to lose it all because of the debts his mother racked up before his parents' deaths. Now his sister, Claire, wants to sell the ranch and collect what little money they can. He'll be out of a home and a job, and in no shape to support the bride he desperately wants to marry, after all.

Autumn's in bigger trouble than ever. Not only has she fallen in love with the subject of her expose - she might be carrying his child. If she doesn't write this article and secure her contract for another year, she'll lose everything - her career, her apartment, and more importantly, her family's approval. The only alternative is to stay and marry Ethan. But how can she trust a man she's just met when she knows too well that men always let you down?

Can a love based on lies last?

Is $.99 the New Free? The Truth About...
By Steve Scott
(138)
Free
Booklet Length 8,515 Words

ATTENTION:: Established Kindle Publishers and Authors About to Launch Their First Book


Do you wonder ANY of the following: Is it better to launch a book for free or $.99? Is there still a benefit to the KDP Select program? When should I move my books to another platform? How do I increase lagging sales?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it's important to know "what currently works" with Kindle Publishing.

DISCOVER: Launching and Pricing Strategies That Work in 2013


Kindle publishing offers a rare opportunity to make money with your words. Simply write a good book and you'll tap into the world's largest online store. But it's not the utopian business model that some Internet gurus claim. You have to work hard and you have to constantly adapt your marketing strategies if you want to be successful.

One tactic in particular that doesn't work like it once did is the "free day promotion" that Amazon provides through the KDP Select program. In the past, you could give away a book and see an immediate bump in sales. Moreover, many authors were able to launch their book for free and see it climb the charts once it switched to paid. Unfortunately, recent changes to Amazon's algorithm has led to diminished success with this strategy. Some people are even saying, "KDP Select is dead."

The question is, if KDP Select no longer works, what can an author do to launch or increase sales?

A possible solution is the "$.99 pricing" strategy." Rather than giving away a book, some people market it at a discounted rate (usually $.99), which ultimately leads to lots of sales at a higher price.

These two choices leave many authors confused. Do the free days still work? Or should an author use the $.99 pricing strategy? In other words, is $.99 the new free?

With the booklet, "Is $.99 the New Free" you'll get a detailed case study of the launching and pricing techniques that actually drive sales on Amazon.com.

INSIDE:: Is $.99 the New Free? - The Truth About Launching and Pricing Your Kindle Books



Inside "Is $.99 the New Free" you'll get short and actionable content that answers the following questions:
  • Why is it important to track your Kindle book sales?

  • What authors benefit best from offering free books through KDP Select?

  • Is it better to launch a book for free or sell it at $.99?

  • How does "visibility" work on Amazon?

  • How can you make a book permanently free on Amazon?

  • When should you move a book to other platforms?

  • How can you build an author platform?

Kindle publishing is constantly evolving. What you need is a strategy guide to keep up with these changes.
