A 5-Star Review and Giveaway in Time for Thanksgiving

Avid reader and writer Ana Torres just ranked Strange Circumstances as a 5-star paranormal short-story collection this week, just in time for the Thanksgiving Giveaway. Here's what she had to say:

What a collection of stories. It has so many good stories I just can't pick one, so I pick all of them. I loved it more since it was paranormal, the read I love... There is a story for everyone in here, from magic, mysteries, science, just too much to list. You just have to read this. You will not be disappointed. You will keep reading to the end and really enjoy the way it was written. An awesome job to the authors. I truly recommend this book to buy if you are unsure what you want to read. It has it all.

I was given a free copy in place for a free review... Thank You, it was truly enjoyable. I will re-read it again.

Book Summary:
The future's a gamble. Few people know what they really want, and those that reach it often find that it isn't what they expected. Strange Circumstances is an anthology of stories exploring the predictability of fate and destiny... or rather their unpredictability.

In the twelve twisted tales and fifteen flash-fiction pieces, Strange Circumstances explores the boundaries of our universe to see what lurks in the unknown, hidden within the mysteries of science, magic, extraterrestrials, religion and the paranormal. Amid celebrities who hit their peak and vanish, a tree that grows up from the floor of a moving train car, unspeakable conspiracy, monstrous espionage, and wicked sorcery, there is something within these pages for anyone who enjoys dark tales and twists of every sort.

Co-written by Weston Kincade, David Chrisley, and Marshall J. Stephens, this is one opportunity you don't want to miss. Normally $2.99, this turkey day and Black Friday get your copy of Strange Circumstances free on Amazon. Question fate and destiny while enjoying exciting, twisted tales of fantasy.

Post-Giveaway Report:
I am happy to report that during the giveaway Strange Circumstances made it to #20 in fiction anthologies and #24 in fantasy short stories and anthologies. Enjoy the free copies, and I hope the remaining weekend holiday is excellent.

Great Review of Salvation, Book 2 in Altered Realities

Great new review of Salvation, Book 2 in the Altered Realities series. David King, a very astute UK book blogger and reviewer at An Eclectic Bookshelf, read and just reviewed Salvation, saying, "As with the first novel, there is an enjoyable blend of Science Fiction and Fantasy throughout the story with alternate dimensions, vampires and psychic powers all being utilized in an entertaining manner. The fast paced action sequences also really keep the fun factor high which is complemented by some interesting and varied worlds."

For the entire review, and to see what other great reads David recommends, visit An Eclectic Bookshelf. To get your own e-copy of Salvation, and Invisible Dawn if you haven't yet read it, they are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Sony, Kobo, and most e-book retail sites. On many, Invisible Dawn is even free.

A Life of Death Episode 8 Release

After a slight delay, I am happy to announce earlier this week Episode 8 of my young adult paranormal mystery series, A Life of Death, was released through Books of the Dead Press. This is the second episode of Book 2, The Golden Bulls, taking Homicide Detective Alex Drummond, his friend Jessie, and readers to Washington DC in order to unmask a serial killer. Ritualistic burnings and ancient Egypt await as Alex gets into the minds of the killer's victims.

Episode 8 Synopsis:
Welcome to Weston Kincade's A Life of Death: 8. A coming-of-age, paranormal mystery.

This is PART EIGHT of an ongoing series. Every two weeks a new episode will be released with no end in sight.

Here's the synopsis:

Alex meets up with an old friend, Jessie Arturo. The two join forces as Alex’s hunch seems to have stalled. Irene Harris is certainly guilty of arson and murder, but is she their serial killer? While scouting, Jessie ropes Alex into his big-city life as a construction worker, introducing his old high school friend to the local area and people, but who would have thought so much death could linger at the fringes of city life? Will Alex be able to focus and catch the killer who has haunted Tranquil Heights for more than a dozen years? Do the ghosts and victims of Washington deserve his attention any less? 

 The book is available on Amazon and Smashwords. It will also soon be available at most other e-book retailers.
