THE GREAT BARRINGTON TRAIN WRECK by Robert Trainor 3.6 Stars (24 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

NOTE: This novel can also be purchased with five other novels of mine for $3.49 in an anthology entitled Six Novels. The Great Barrington Train Wreck is also contained in Four Novels, which is another anthology of mine that sells for $2.99. Living on the street isn't easy, but Mike Stratton knows his way around... at least until the day that he almost dies from hypothermia. Scrambling around, he finds a job as a cab driver, rents an apartment, and falls in love with his most beautiful fare, the enigmatic Alexandra Hughes. Alexandra, who is only twenty, has a boyfriend, but Mike is obsessed with her, and before long, it appears that she needs him -- especially on the night when she tells him, through a flood of tears, that her father has murdered her boyfriend and is coming after her. But all is not quite what it seems in this tale of a down-and-out guy who is never able to see through the smokescreen of his lust... or see through the erotic night he spends in bed with Alexandra... or see through Alexandra's mysterious disappearance... or see through his unexpected arrest for murder. The following is an excerpt from Part One: Just to introduce myself, I'm about as poor as poor can get. Not third-world malnutrition poor, but dirtbag American poor--tattered, friendless, homeless. Twenty years ago, when I was fifteen, I dropped out of high school, and a year later, I was booted out of my parent's house. Since then, I've been living on the streets and have hardly even slept in an apartment, much less rented one. During the long, cold northern winters, I've gone from one homeless shelter to another or from one abandoned house to another. In the summers, I usually crash in the city park, or on rainy nights, I'll walk the five miles to the state forest where I've dug a hole in the ground that's covered with logs, tarpaulin, and brush. Meanwhile, through it all, drugs and alcohol have been my staples--morning, noon, and night. Even though I have no formal education to ...

Theresa Manning: or A Girl in Progress by Mario Almonte (New Meadows Press) 3.8 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

The brutal beating of a young pregnant woman forces a former co-worker to confront the painful memories of his brief and failed affair with her and the choices he made in life that brought him to her side at the hospital six months later. As doctors struggle to save her life, he must explain to police his role in the fatal argument in which the woman, Theresa Manning, killed her husband. The police want to know why, as she lay bleeding and barely clinging to life, her husband nearby in a pool of blood, the only person she considered calling was a man she supposedly had not seen in nearly half a year. Theresa Manning is a powerful novel about two people trying to find their paths to redemption, believing they did not need each other but discovering they needed each other more than they could ever know. It takes the reader on a journey of discovery as the events of the fateful evening unfold. In the end is the realization that sometimes redemption is not the final destination in life, but the beginning of another long and equally difficult journey.

Dead on the Water: Abandon Ship (Zombie Cruise) by RWK Clark (Clarkltd) 3.9 Stars (35 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Don't miss the thrilling suspense novel from bestselling author RWK Clark. What happens when a dream vacation becomes a fight for survival? A cruise ship carrying a terrible, zombie-making virus returns to the vast ocean. This post-apocalyptic science fiction novel pulsates with horror and evil that will have you on the edge of your seat. Author Commentary This is another zombie contribution that I put a bit of a spin on. 'Dead on the Water' chronicles the story of a Fantasy Lines cruise ship carrying a terrible, zombie-making virus that returns to the vast ocean. This is a fast-paced book; once the action starts, it is pretty much non-stop. Being on a cruise ship, those who are still normal have minimal resources or means of escape. While it is about zombies, and there are several very graphic scenes, I do not believe it is necessarily a scary book. I tried to use dialogue in a surreal manner, especially coming from the monsters, to show the craziness and terrifying truth about the situation. Still, I didn't want it to be too heavy. My vision was simply to relate the hopelessness of the situation without making the book burdensome to read; I wanted it to be on the 'lighter' side, if possible. I find it challenging to imagine happy endings when it comes to the genres I write in, and I find it much easier to be horribly realistic. But let's face it, I write about completely unrealistic stuff. What I'm trying to say is, the glory of fiction is in its falseness, but the impact of fiction is found in its painful reality. If a zombie apocalypse really happened, would the ending be a good one? If the zombies reach land, there will be a pandemic zombie outbreak. Someone on that damn boat has to be smart enough to get help. A pretty daunting task, don't you think? Well, all I have to say is, you'll just have to see.
