From the Writer’s Desk. Number 68 featuring Linda Hall

Dear Reader,

You may have missed last week’s Indie Promotion. That was not a mistake. I’m cutting the amount of those in two for now, so you’ll find a new Indie Promo every 2 weeks instead of each Monday.

August Gamble

August Gamble
by Alexandria Publishing Group author Linda Hall

Ebook Short Description: August Gamble – Book One of the Mountie Series
He was well known to the Chester detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as to many residents. Tom Anderchuk was the town’s bad kid, drop out, drug taker, and then drug dealer. No sympathy lost here over his death.

Corporal Roger Sheppard wondered then why this particular murder upset him so? He was always the cool one, the non-emotional policeman. Was it the August heat? No, It was more than that. This whole drug problem was right in his own backyard. Now, a young dealer had been killed. Then there was Madeline, Tom’s girlfriend. Roger couldn’t get her eyes out of his mind – haunted, scared and empty. If Madeline did know something she wasn’t talking. Or was afraid to.

Dear Reader,

We have reached springtime. I hope the weather is bearing signs of it where you are, it seems that many places still hesitate to let go of winter. Maybe this week’s book can help your spring land a coup!

Counting Coup

Ebook Short Description: The story of the way west in the early nineteenth century was often a tale of danger, death and unspeakable suffering. The early trappers and mountain men forged the trails westward for the pioneers that followed and became part of the legend of the American West. Of this hardy breed of early venturers one name stands out above the rest: Kit Carson. Many stories of his bravery, often wildly exaggerated filled eastern bookshelves of the day.

How much of what was written was true and how much was fantasy? Cavalry officer Captain Tom Adams vowed to seek the truth behind the legend and along the way faced near shipwrecks, attempted assassinations, Indian massacres, murder, and torture in an odyssey that he never believed would have been possible.

Dear Reader,

A new Monday in the new year. Is your reading pile almost gone? If yes, no problem because here is today’s Indie Promotion:

Task Force Gaia

task force gaia
by David Berger

Short Description: During the age of Olympos, when a vengeful goddess shatters the Sacred Scales, both immortals and humans alike suffer. Apollo, the god of truth, goes from a glorious existence as The Shining One to a victim of Zeus’ wrath, and his journey makes him question his godhood, his role in the cosmos, and his views on humanity. Prophecy and the Fates direct his course, and he must make difficult, yet vital, choices. Millennia pass, and Dan, Aleta, Brandon, and Sarah—four reluctant modern-day heroes gifted by ancient civilizations born of the gods—bound by prophecy, have to choose whether or not to save their world when it could mean they never existed. They must master their new powers while battling against incomprehensible forces from the Underworld and repairing the Sacred Scales, destroyed long ago. With the equilibrium between Order and Chaos unhinged, and the Olympian gods struggling to exist, these four must ally themselves with the United Nations to protect an endangered world, becoming the only group who can fight against metaphysical threats to the Earth, forging Task Force: Gaea. Can mortals succeed where gods cannot go?

Where to find.
You can find the book on Amazon.com. Note that this is the paperback version, you can find the Kindle version of this book behind this link.
