Coming in August
Today we issued EYE OF THE STORM by Amy Eastlake. This romance/thriller is set in the mean streets of contemporary Dallas and Laredo, Texas. A private detective believes her best friend was murdered--but the police, political establishment, and the criminal underworld are all out to stop her from proving it. EYE OF THE STORM was a Romance Writers of America 2005 Golden Heart Finalist. EYE will be available for only $3.99, but for the first month of availability, it'll be offered for the promotional price of only $1 (hey, we are named Books For A Buck). Read the review and the prologue FREE here. Check out this beautiful cover (cover art by Jane Graves):
New in July
Volume 2 of author Kristina O'Donnelly's ANDROMAKHE is now available. Volume 2 continues this fascinating historical fantasy set during and after the Trojan War. Andromakhe, now widow of Hektor (Hector), the great Trojan hero, must somehow survive and pursue her dream of recreating the Trojan civilization that the Greek warriors have destroyed. (Note--you can buy Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 at the discounted price of only $5.99, a $1 saving).
DEAD ON by Michael Paulson, a hard-hitting hard-boiled detective thriller, has been getting great reviews. Way to go, Michael. It's now available in trade paperback as well as eBook format.
ANDROMAKHE by Kristina O'Donnelly has also been getting great reviews. Congratulations, Kristina.
Also in July, we released a FREE short story--THE MOON OVER WATERMELLON LEAVES by Rob Preece. This story came to me in a dream and I couldn't get it out of my head until I wrote it. Check it out here.
