OLD GOOSEBERRY'S DILEMMA - A new comedy from fantasy author Patricia Perry

The Devil strikes a bargain with God to keep two misfit brothers out of Hell; unfortunately the arduous task is more than even the Prince of Darkness can handle.

Unwilling to allow two rowdy brothers and their crazy acquaintances into Hell where he fears they may take over, the Devil strikes a bargain with God - keep the brothers out of trouble for three days and He'll consider letting them into Heaven.

The Prince of Darkness quickly realizes that trying to protect the raucous Dean Brothers is an arduous task as the brothers unwittingly lead Lucifer into their world where bar fights, free money and casual relationships are the norm.

Assigned by God to keep an eye on the goings-on, the Archangel Michael cannot help but be amused at Old Gooseberry's dogged determination to keep the Dean's out of his realm.

Autographed copies are available on Patricia Perry's Website.

A Look At The Hidden History Of Salem, Massachusetts From Susanne Saville

Today we're celebrating the release of Susanne Saville's HIDDEN HISTORY OF SALEM.
Susanne enjoys caffeine - especially in coffee and tea, traveling, horseback riding, reading, and John Barrowman. Not necessarily in that order. She has a Master's Degree in History and a second Master's Degree in Library Science. The casual observer might suppose that this primarily qualifies her to dispense fries at fast-food restaurants. (Just kidding.)

Ms. Saville has worked as a Reference Librarian in California and as a History Instructor at Georgia Military College. She has also been interviewed by Dog Fancy as an expert on the pug dog's place in history. She currently resides in New England and, along with writing, delights in researching, spending quality time with her cats, and eating fries at fast-food restaurants.


There's more to Salem's history than witches.

Salem, nestled along the rocky coast of Massachusetts, has long been synonymous with witches. In this fascinating collection of stories, author Susanne Saville sheds light onto the forgotten moments of this noteworthy New England community. Discover Salem's profitable "Age of Sail," the important role coffeehouses played during the American Revolution, the scandalous life of Richard Crowninshield Jr. and the unforgettable writer Nathaniel Hawthorne. These revealing stories will not leave the history of Salem in the shadows for long.

Mark Jackman's New Sid Tillsley Book Is Now Available

Today we're celebrating the LL Publications release of A FISTFULL OF RUBBERS, book two in Mark Jackman's trilogy, The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

MARK JACKMAN is one of the most talented, exciting, and hilarious writers to explode onto the fiction scene in the 21st century,” was what Mark Jackman hoped to read in the papers last year. He also hoped to punch a shark and own a Ford 2.8i Capri. He hoped that with the release of The Great Right Hope his newly-found celebrity status would bring him fast women, hard drugs and liquor, and then slower, more understanding women. Instead he has had to be satisfied with The Great Right Hope making regular appearances on various lists with various rankings on the Amazon.co.uk Bestseller List, such as in the Top 100 in the categories of Horror (Kindle), Parodies & Satire Horror, Humour (Kindle and Print). A Fistful of Rubbers is the second installment in the trilogy known as The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

HE has successfully installed a decking area into his garden.

VISIT Mark at www.mark-jackman.com where you’ll discover more of his wordy pursuits, blogs, science writing, and future plans for fiction...of which there are many.


A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS: Book Two of The Sid Tillsley Chronicles
By Mark Jackman

Middlesbrough’s favourite son Sid Tillsley is now a vampire-hunter, but even the coolest, most dangerous job in the world can’t get him a shag, forcing him into the more hazardous world of Internet dating. To make matters worse, the Human-Vampire Coalition has shut the local boozer forcing Sid and his friends to drink sub-standard ale!

But Sid has a fight coming. Something lurks in the shadows, or rather, the closet. A Northerner will punch anything in the face, but one thing he fears is a direct attack on his sexuality…and the Campire draws near.

Meanwhile, the psychotic vampire Gunnar Ivansey wants revenge. Sid hit Gunnar so hard in the nuts he’s never forgiven him. And with the death of vampire warlord Michael Vitrago, the floodgates are open for any vampire to enter Britain, the heart of the vampire nation, and wage war against humanity.

Can the Coalition prevent the vampire world from destroying mankind? Can Sid get lucky on the Internet? Can the Coalition use Sid to hunt Gunnar Ivansey? Can Sid find a decent pint? Does humanity have a chance if its only hope is Sid’s great right hook…and a fistful of rubbers?

Readers who haven’t read THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE (yet) won’t be left wondering or confused as Mark Jackman makes a seamless transition into this second instalment of the hilarious Sid Tillsley Chronicles. Amy J. Ramsey of Ramsey’s Book Reviews says, “A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is a cleverly crafted sequel to Jackman’s THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE. It contains everything a
vampire reader wants: action, adventure, humor, and most importantly, SHAGGING…(erm) slaying of all sorts. The ultimate vampire series. Howay the lads! A definite must read!”

Mark Jackman proudly presents The Sid Tillsley Chronicles as “the anti-Twilight” in response to what he sees as a downward spiral of the vampire genre. He explains that “Creatures of the night have slowly revolved through the years to creatures of the…posters of teenage girls. I don’t like that.”

A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is available in print and several ebook formats and can found at www.amazon.com, www.amazon.co.uk, www.omnilit.com as well as many other print and ebook retailers.

Today we're celebrating the print and ebook release of ECHOES, a new book in The Protector's Series of hot romantic suspense by Judith Rochelle (you might know her better as Desiree Holt!).

Judith Rochelle, also writing as Desiree Holt, has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!).

For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her.

She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses. Romance Junkies said of her work: "Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last."


ECHOES - Book three in Judith Rochelle's The Protectors Series

Just when Alexis Craig thought she'd finally gotten her life on a somewhat even keel, the terrible nightmares returned and then, out of nowhere, a stalker threatened her. First it was notes left at her office, then photos, then faxes and emails. Nick Vanetta, sinfully sexy partner in Guardian Security, thinks there's more behind this than just a simple fixation, and when someone takes a shot at Alexis, he wonders if the answer is buried somewhere in her past. As the two dig deeper into her family history, the chemistry between them heats to boiling. Can they find the stalker before it's too late?

And just in case you missed this summer's release of book two in Judith's Protector's Series:

She calls on the only person she feels she can trust, Zak Delaney, her former lover who she broke with after a bitter argument. But can Zak put aside his bitterness to help her? As she runs from the people trying to kill her, people who destroy her home, and her business and definitely want to destroy her, will the chemistry still there between them sizzle to the surface or will it explode and demolish them both?

Scott Benjamin's Debut Sci Fi Novel Now In Ebook And Print

Today we're celebrating Scott Benjamin's first novel, a science fiction adventure called THE MUSIC SEED.

Scott Benjamin is a well known antique collector and dealer of old service station items. He has co-authored 13 related books, which over the years have sold nearly 80,000 copies. Currently he publishes an international magazine called Petroleum Collectibles Monthly.

But, science fiction and music are what he enjoys most. Benjamin spent ten years in Los Angeles writing and recording music before moving back to his home town Elyria, Ohio. Growing up watching shows like Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Star Trek, and currently the hit show Fringe, led him to write THE MUSIC SEED, a novel about a young girl with extreme musical talents and two races of alien beings. "If it's weird I love to watch it!" he states.

Currently Benjamin resides in LaGrange, Ohio with his family.


THE MUSIC SEED by Scott Benjamin

A young, remarkably musically talented, 14 year old girl dying of cancer, her father, a special government agent, a strange visitor from another planet simply calling himself the Music Man and the four powerful beings who accompany him converge on Earth to thwart a pending attack in our future.

But can they do it in time?
Who can be trusted?
Will the young girl realize her destiny in time before she dies?
What will happen to Earth if she fails?
Why is all this related to only music?
What did a fifth airplane on 9/11 have to do with the young girl?
The Music Man has been sent here to Earth by four special beings. But why was he sent here and what does he know?
How can a 14-year-old girl save our planet?
What role does music play in this whole wild scenario?
What does the Music Man really know about planet Earth?

The Music Man and the powerful beings have deduced that planet Earth, on its current path of technology, has not even a faint chance of surviving the coming of the Mentones in the year 2683. The Mentones are an extremely advanced race of strange beings with an effective, yet sick way of harvesting planets to continue their species.

But the Music Man’s once simple mission becomes extremely complicated. The government blames the Music Man for misfortunes around the planet. The Mentones discover the Earth seed and set out to destroy it. Another powerful being, hidden eons ago, sides with the evil race of Mentones, as the Earth seed lies dying in a hospital. A genius inventor, a radical doctor and a NASA video surveillance specialist all become part of the now complex countdown.

So with the Music Man conducting a new evolution of music, a new technology using sound covering all aspects of the development and advancement of the human race, a chance to survive we may have. We just have to listen to the new music. We just have to listen to him. And we just have a little over 677 years to become prepared for the inevitable.

The only hitch is that in order to succeed, we must take the right path now.

Another Lorelei James Rough Rider Book Goes To Print

Today we're celebrating the print release of book 8 in Lorelei James' Rough Riders Series - ALL JACKED UP.

When she's not squirreled away behind her laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, Lorelei can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until she's a pretzel, shootin' her .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid's taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin' up vittles.

Why does she have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, she's a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives her a unique perspective, especially since she's not writing historical westerns. Through her fictional world, she can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.

She also write a dark, gritty mystery series under the name Lori Armstrong and her novel Snow Blind just won the 2009 Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America for Best Paperback Original!


Pulling off the ultimate con...if they can keep from pulling off their clothes.

ALL JACKED UP Rough Riders, Book 8 by Lorelei James

Keely McKay knows Jack - and Jack Donohue is a certified pain in her Wranglers. The lone girl in the prolific McKay family, Keely needs another man giving her orders like she needs a hole in her boot. What she does need is a restoration specialist so she can open her physical therapy clinic - and prove she's left her wild-child days behind. That means dealing with buttoned-down, uptight Jack.

Jack is this close to securing a career make-or-break project, until he learns his lack of marital status puts him out of contention. When the notoriously hot-tempered and hot-bodied Keely begs him for help, he proposes a crazy idea. He'll oversee her project - if she acts the part of his loving fiancee.

Their sizzling lust makes it all too easy to go from butting heads to knocking boots - but outside the bedroom they're as mismatched as ever. The McKays remind Jack of the humble upbringing he left behind, and cowgirl Keely feels she doesn't measure up to Jack's big-city lifestyle.

When the dust settles, Jack and Keely must face the fact they're not fooling anyone but themselves - or they'll risk losing the real deal.

Product Warnings: This book by Lorelei James contains one hot-blooded cowgirl and one cool-headed businessman in a stripped-down, revved-up game of sexual truth or dare.
