LATEST DISCOUNTED Kindle books (some temporarily) forum thread:
  Forum-thread starter RandomizeME includes a caution that it's not a book promotion thread for authors or for posts about indies or free books either.  "The thread is for discounts and price drops that readers [many, but especially Emily Bronte] find for books from publishers."

Other books by Tiffany King: Forgotten Souls (The Saving Angels book 2) The Dark Angel: This is a short story prequel of the Saving Angels series available in The Glassheart Chronicles, an anthology collection by some of today's hottest indie authors. Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can't help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams. Krista's emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force. Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets. As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.

Kindred Spirits
Author: Ashanti Luke
Genre: Science Fiction - Action - Adventure

DESCRIPTION: Past due bills, last minute term papers, annoying ex-boyfriends. Michelle Long's life is the life of a typical engineering student--or so she thinks until the night of September 17, 1991. Jason Dyer, a vigilant revolutionary from the not-so-distant future, travels back to 1991 to save a seemingly innocuous college student's life. He gives up the life of an ordinary college graduate for what he believes--to save the world from destruction in his time, Maximilian Powers, an amicable patriarch of a local church, has to die in 1991, and Michelle has to kill him.


A Cry for Justice: Overcome anger, reject bitterness, and trust in Jesus who will fight for you
Author: Shelley Hundley
Genre: Religious - Inspirational

DESCRIPTION: The daughter of American missionaries, Shelley Hundley was born in Colombia, and grew up on the campus of a seminary that trained leaders to serve in what was one of the most violent nations in the world. After suffering abuse at the hands of a minister in the community, she turns from God-angry and confused that He could allow this to happen. In A Cry for Justice, Hundley uses her story as a backdrop to show how she found healing from the pain, guilt, and shame of the abuse she endured as a child and how she came to know Jesus in a new way-as a righteous judge who fights for His people and takes upon Himself the burden of our injustices and pain. The story of Shelley Hundley's journey from bitter atheist to wholehearted lover of God is unique. Yet what she learned on this journey is relevant to every person who has ever been hurt and has silently wondered, "Who will fight for me? Who can make the wrong things right?"

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the 'blogger.com' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
