Jon Saboe Makes Popular Adventure Series Available as Complimentary DownloadsFor 5 Days Only


Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) January 21, 2013

Novelist Jon Saboe has developed a strong cult following, solely on the basis of his two adventure narratives, The Days of Peleg and The Days of Lam?ch. Though the books have amassed passionate and outspoken fans, it is not enough for Saboe, whose greatest passion is for sharing his stories with as many eager readers as possible. As such, the author has decided to give away the books as free e-book downloads; both volumes in the series will be made available to readers in Kindle and Nook forms, for five days only. The promotion, sponsored by publisher Enoch Press, will last from January 24 through January 28.

According to Saboe, the impetus for the book giveaway is simply the desire to draw more readers into the Peleg and Lamech community. The great joy of writing and publishing these books has been seeing them take hold among so many readers, who have written me to express their interest and their gratitude, remarks Saboe. These are stories that resonate with peoplesometimes provoking thought and sometimes just entertaining. Indeed, The Days of Pelegfirst published in 2007resonated so deeply that Saboe was inundated with requests from readers, hungry for a follow-up. The Days of Lam?ch was released in 2011 as a prequel to the first book; now, Saboe has partnered with Enoch Press to expand his audience and invite more readers into the fold.

An IT professional by day, Saboe says his original conception of the books came from conversations he had with friends and co-workers about the origins of humankind. There is a tendency for modern men and women to look back on past civilizations and view them as primitive and foolish, explains Saboe. The idea of these books is that perhaps there was much more to these early cultures than meets the eyeand that maybe our entire conception of anthropology is skewed.

Though they may sound lofty in their thematic elements, Saboe assures readers that his books are anything but didactic or overly-intellectual. While I would love it if these books provoked some thought and generated some discussions, both entries in the series are adventure stories at heart, he remarks. Indeed, the author is proud to reflect on the critical notices his books have received, comparing them to the works of C.S. Lewis and Michael Crichton, as well as adventure films like National Treasure and the Indiana Jones movies.

Through this new promotion, Saboe desires to bring these adventures to his widest audience yet. I love the enthusiasm of my readers, and now, the goal is simply to see their numbers grow! he says. The Days of Peleg and The Days of Lam?ch are both in print and available from various retailers, including Amazon; electronic versions are free for download, on January 24 through January 28, through Enoch Press.

Mystery Series Set in Acapulco Launched with Release of Cliff Diver


Sterling, Va (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

Carmen Amato, an established author who divides her time between the United States and Central America, just released the first novel in the new Emilia Cruz mystery series set in Acapulco, Mexico, the city recently reported to be the second most violent in the world. Featuring the first and only female police detective in Acapulco, Cliff Diver is available at amazon.com in print and ebook formats to take both Detective Emilia Cruz and readers of this edgy police procedural into the heart of Mexicos drug war.

Youre a good cop, Cruz. The kind that die young. The words of Acapulcos fictional police chief exemplify the tone of the new Emilia Cruz series. In Cliff Diver, Emilia investigates the murder of her corrupt police lieutenant and becomes the target of a high-stakes political power play as well as resentment from male detectives. Missing police files, links to a past kidnapping, and connections to a gang working for a drug cartel point the investigation in multiple directions. Under pressure from politicians, other cops, and the powerful police union, Emilia feels like Acapulcos famous cliff divers, plunging into suspense and praying not to crash on the rocks below.

As noted on Amazon, Amato has taken the classic mystery and given it a contemporary Mexican twist. The result is an adrenaline-charged novel with the emotional vibe of those who live on the edge. In addition, readers are already singing the praises of the novel and its strong central Latina character. On her website, Amato writes that she drew on contemporary Latina figures to shape the Emilia Cruz character, including Olympic boxer Marlen Esparza and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

People who would like to read an excerpt from this riveting new mystery novel before purchasing Cliff Diver can find the first chapter on Amatos website. In the chapter, Emilia has a strange encounter with her lieutenant and meets hotel manager Kurt Rucker for the first time; over the course of the book her relationship with Rucker will both complicate Emilias investigation and help her to survive it.

In a guest article for omnimysterynews.com, Amato discussed her 2012 political thriller The Hidden Light of Mexico City and how a chance encounter with a junkie in Mexico City became the spark that led to the Emilia Cruz series. Concerned about the toll that drug violence is taking on Mexico, Amato hopes that a mystery series can raise awareness of what’s going on in Mexico, with plot elements straight out of the headlines, an authentic dive into one of the most beautiful settings on earth, and a little salsa fresca from my own years living in Mexico and Central America.

Breakout Writers Swinging For Their Next Self Publishing Home Run With The Young Adult Paranormal Series ForNevermore (And Free Ebook!)


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

Authors Sean Platt and David W. Wright have already proven that weekly serialization works to drive sales and please readers with their post-apocalyptic serial Yesterdays Gone, which has generated impressive sales and over 200 5-Star reviews. Now the duo is aiming for more self publishing success with their first entry into the young adult paranormal/dark fantasy genres.

Audiences who loved The Hunger Games and Twilight will love Platt and Wright’s recently released first season of their serial, ForNevermore.

Readers who want to sample the story can get the first episode of the series free at Amazon April 17-19 2012. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007EEF3TS/

We wanted to write something that captured the magic and misery of being young, trying to find your place, and not fitting in anywhere, said Platt, who described ForNevermore as a darkly romantic fantasy horror.

ForNevermore tells the story of Noella Snow, a 17 year old who lives in two worlds. The real world where her parents are dead and she lives with her aunt in upstate New York, then her dreamworld where her father is still alive, and shes watched over by Dante, a mysterious man with a deadly touch.

As her 17th birthday approaches, Noellas dream world begins to bleed into her real world, and she starts hearing voices and seeing monsters that cant possibly be real. As Death comes to claim her, Dante saves her, saying not only is he real, but he has watched over her for hundreds of years.

Is she losing her mind? Will he have to return to Kings Point Psychiatric Hospital?

Dont let the young adult tag fool you. This is a deep, dark story, said Wright. The only thing separating this story-wise from our other fiction is a lack of sex and the language is PG-13. But the scares, plot twists, and crazy cliffhanger endings our readers love are all there! We love how the first season turned out in its weekly form, and are thrilled to publish the full season.

Platt and Wright are looking to become Kings of the Serial this year with a publishing schedule of one book, short story, or episode per week in 2012. They treat their serials like TV shows, writing in six week blocks, with each episode ranging from 11,000 to 25,000 words in length. Each episode sells for .99 during its season. After all six episodes of a given season are out, they compile all six episodes into a Season Compilation, which sells in one low-priced book.

The duo says that offering readers a choice of either buying the serials in weekly doses or waiting for the whole season book has been one of the keys to their success.

Yesterdays Gone: Season Two returned in January for its second smash season, running six straight weeks into February. They followed with the debut of ForNevermore in February. Theyll be returning to adult horror with their newest series, WhiteSpace, a sci-fi horror serial, on May 1.

You know how HBO, Showtime, and AMC all have awesome must-see TV week after week? We want to be the HBO, Showtime, or AMC of the Kindle world, where no matter what, you know well have something awesome for you, every Tuesday, said Platt.

Cool Well Press Releases the Dr. Gladstone Series by Paula Paul


Newport, RI (PRWEB) February 17, 2012

These books have been released simultaneously in traditional paperback and e-book formats and are available at the publishers website at http://www.coolwellpress.com as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

The stories feature Dr. Alexandra Gladstone who, in 1880, has taken over her late fathers practice in the fictitious village of Newton-Upon-Sea. Besides battling the towns reluctance to accept a female practicing medicine, she also finds enough murder and mayhem in the surrounding area to keep her life interesting.

The first book in the series, entitled Symptoms of Death, as well as the second book, An Improper Death, and the third, Half a Mind to Murder were each on the Independent Mystery Book Sellers bestseller lists in the first month of their release.

Fans of the series tell me they enjoy learning about the history of the era as well becoming engrossed in the mystery, Ms. Paul said. And then there are the dog lovers who want to read about Zack, Dr. Gladstones Landseer Newfoundland, since he loves to stick his nose into the murders.

Ms. Paul said she has found the comments fans have made about social issues interesting as well. For example, in one of the stories Dr. Gladstone meets Florence Nightingale who was adamantly against vaccinations. I didnt take a stand one way or the other, but my readers were surprised to know Miss Nightingale was so outspoken against vaccinations.

Im very happy that Cool Well Press is reissuing the books in both print and electronic format, Ms. Paul said, and I am particularly happy to be writing more books in the series.
