Book Description:

With the timeless story and heartfelt prose reminiscent of the works of Christina Baker Kline, Anthony Doerr and JoJo Moyes, award winning Carey Richard’s The Poppy Field Diary is a compelling journey into the human heart and the lengths to which we will go to preserve our most endearing relationships.

Sometimes it takes a moment . . . Sometimes it takes a lifetime . . . Sometimes a lifetime is not enough

In the summer of 1962 Nikita Khrushchev shipped medium-range nuclear missiles to Cuba. That summer she fell in love. While the United States withdrew from Vietnam, her oldest son trained for the buzkashi, the wild game of Afghan polo brought to her country by Genghis Khan. As the Russians invaded Afghanistan, her husband ran guns and opium through the Khyber Pass; as they retreated, she matched wits with a beautiful Czech spy. While the Taliban ravaged Kabul, she cared for a wounded bacha bereesh, an Afghan dancing boy. As the Twin Towers burned, she discovered one of life’s most precious secrets.

Book Description:

Leaving the Office of International Operations seemed like a great way to avoid bureaucratic hassles, red-tape, and murderous psychopaths. Unfortunately, things don’t always work out the way they should.

Meet Alexis Parker, former OIO operative, currently trying to make a name for herself in the private sector. With a limited job history, the state of the economy, and her own internal struggle concerning her competence as an investigator, Alex is forced to take the only job she is offered.

Enter eccentric, playboy, CEO James Martin. Martin Technologies is a multi-million dollar corporation that James Martin has nurtured from the ground up with his workaholic tendencies. But now that Mr. Martin’s life is being threatened, what’s a guy to do besides hire an attractive, feisty, former federal agent to be his new security consultant and personal bodyguard.

As Alex attempts to navigate the minefield of potential suspects, she gradually begins to uncover an underlying conspiracy that has been brewing at Martin Technologies for almost half a decade. Anyone could be involved, making all of Martin’s closest friends, acquaintances, and employees possible suspects. What starts out as a single death threat quickly morphs into a plot to overtake his entire company. Once the pieces start to fall into place, things begin to explode, both literally and figuratively for Alex, as the physical danger looms ever more menacingly overhead. This outwardly simple case quickly becomes something neither Alex nor Martin ever imagined as the situation continues to escalate rapidly out of control. It will take all of Alex’s training and instincts to be able to track down the criminal mastermind and stop the assassination plot before it’s too late.

About the Author:

G.K. Parks has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History. After spending some time in law school, G.K. changed paths and earned a Master of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice. Now, that education is being put to use, creating a fictional world based upon years of study and research.

G.K. Parks is the creator of the Alexis Parker series. G.K. has always been fascinated with mysteries and thrillers and sought to create a flawed, realistic protagonist. After months of scrapped ideas, a single scene emerged from the pile of rubbish which would later become part of Likely Suspects, and thus, Alexis Parker was born. She’s a strong, female investigator with a difficult past and the insecurities to match.

The characters and plots are meant to feel realistic, as are the investigative procedures in place. Obviously, these are works of fiction, and some creative licensing occurs in order to make the stories more entertaining. After all, no one wants to read a cut and dry novel with nothing but jargon and people filing paperwork.

Each novel in the Alexis Parker series is a standalone story, requiring no prior knowledge of the characters or previous events since each mystery is self-contained. However, for a deeper character connection, you may prefer to read the books in order.

About the Author:

 

dean murray

 

Dean Murray discovered the joys of reading at a young age and unknowingly ingested unhealthy doses of romance along with his science fiction and fantasy. By the time he realized what had happened it was too late to reverse the process and he spent his formative years (while his peers were still convinced that girls had cooties) trying to convince one specific girl to be his girlfriend to no avail.

As fate would have it, he’s incredibly grateful that he failed in his attempts in second grade because it meant that he was able to eventually find his real happily ever after with his wife Katie to whom he’s been happily married for more than six years.

Dean is the author of nineteen published novels (and a host of short stories), which collectively have nearly half a million copies in circulation, and he’s currently writing six books a year in an effort to create the perfect, larger than life romance story–which he’s pretty sure involves either vampire, werewolves, fairies or shape shifters.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

VOLUME TWO in the WOOD COW CHRONICLES series.

For untold ages, the Granite Hulks at Tilk Duraow have been the impregnable center of the High One’s slaving system. Overpowering. Impenetrable. Final. The point from which there is no return. But now, fifteen-year-old Helga’s revolution—one she hardly expected to begin—is way bigger than she ever dreamed. Tilk Duraow itself is in danger. Unexpectedly finding common cause with a troupe of oddball characters, Helga and old comrades are reunited in a chain of events that portends the Overending. Now even the High One himself is no longer safe. The Overending opens a crack…

Rick Johnson’s slightly skewed reality brings readers another mind-bending, genre-busting adventure. Fantastic and quirky, exhilarating and addicting, this entertaining adventure takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end. Ridiculous, but deadly serious. Hits you hard in the funnies, while turning your mind inside out.

Each app is offered free for 24 hours and, after that period is over it goes back to paid status and a new app is the Free App of the Day.

Today’s Free App of the Day is Mount Olympus , and this app is normally $1.99 in the Amazon App Store but is free for today only.

Here is the app’s description from the Amazon App Store website:

From the creators of Tesla’s Electric Mist comes a brand new Point and Click Adventure.
The Greek Gods have gone missing, and you’re just the hero to solve the mystery and bring the Gods back.

Mount Olympus is a point and click adventure designed specifically to be simple, yet gripping and challenging at every turn. Unlike other adventure games, Mount Olympus has been crafted in a way that makes getting lost next to impossible. So instead of floundering around, unsure of where to turn, you’ll be lost in the elegance of the art, and the story instead.

You are the hero, sent on a quest to Mount Olympus by your village elders to discover why the Gods have gone missing. Your quest begins as you enter the city of Olympus, which stretches out, covering the base of the great mountain of the Gods.

You must search through the abandoned ancient city looking for clues, solving puzzles, and slowly making your way to the top of the great mountain, in hopes of solving the mystery laid out before you and returning the great and powerful Gods to their glory.

With the success of our last point-and-click adventure game, Tesla’s Electric Mist, we’ve gone back to the drawing board, adjusting our core game engine, adding all the elements our fans requested. Our fans begged for a longer game (they were sad to see it end). Mount Olympus will be double the chapters, and is expected to be 3x as long in game play as Tesla. You wanted more puzzles; how’s 10x the puzzles sound? Although we never once heard a complaint about our easy to use in-game map and hint guide, we’ve improved them immensely. With our new in-game hint system, we literally will show you exactly where to click if you need that level of help. With so many puzzles to work through, we felt it would be awesome to have an auto-solve system for your convenience on those really tough puzzles.
