So we all know Amazon as the leaders in the marketplace. And it’s we little indie authors that made that happen when they created the Kindle. We sent Amazon up in a rocket. However, we have no legal standing with them. They can remove our books, change book categories, take away our reviews and they don’t even inform us. What we should be doing is using Amazon as a bookshelf only and direct our readers to the many other outlets.
Today it’s all about Apple – the iPad, iBook. Who doesn’t own an iPad or iPhone? I don’t but I know there are millions of you worldwide that do.
So here is a selection of books where you can purchase and read from your iPones and iPads.
Ever since one disastrous night during World War 2, a third of the world’s population has carried the potential to “roll into power.” No one can predict which few will actually go through the change, and there’s only one, tragic certainty: rolling before the age of forty is a death sentence.
Passing into middle age might be uneventful, marked only by extra candles on your birthday cake, but it might lead to becoming a human fireball, drowning a city, or teleporting into outer space.
Rough Passages presents the stories of five people forever changed and con
nected by the powers that disrupt their lives:
ales of Crime & Violence are a compilation of many of my short, and not so short stories.
The ideas and inspiration are many and as varied as each of the individual stories themselves.
Although all the tales in these books are about committing crime, or being involved in acts of violence, the real story is that of the people involved, why and how they came to be in this position, whether they were forced or coerced, willing participants or victims themselves.
The stories in this collection of three volumes have underlying factors, deeper meanings, twists and stings to savour and enjoy.
I hope you enjoy reading these tales as much I have enjoyed writing them.
12 chilling and though-provoking tales that will stay with you for nights to come.
Are you ready to delve into the dark side?
