Night People by Larry J Dunlap is Free!

night peopleNIGHT PEOPLE, an intimate, literary memoir, follows the first three, of six, years in the life of a young singer and three vocalist friends in a transformational journey as they strive for success in a coming-of-age music and romance-filled adventure in 1960-era California and Las Vegas.

As their fortunes rise, he and his rock&roll band are plunged into an adventure that will make them the model for Three Dog Night, take them to dangerous mob-run nightclubs, Las Vegas showrooms and backrooms, and famous Hollywood nightclubs, celebrity managers, famous recording studios, and passionate romance.

In this book everything Larry thinks he knows will be challenged, as he tries to adapt to a new life, a new companion and lover, and to the things he finds, and loses, in the tumultuous nights he now inhabits.

Night People was influenced by “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed, “The Wrecking Crew” by Kent Hartman, and “The Descendents” by Kaui Hart Hemmings

About Game On Boys! author: Kate Cullen

Kate Cullen

Kate Cullen lives on the glorious Sunshine Coast in Australia by a beautiful beach. She lives with her PlayStation addicted son, her Mine craft addicted daughter, her football addicted husband and a white fluffy thing called Lucy who is the subject of some of her books.

Kate has a background in teaching and nursing but her biggest passions are writing and acting.

As crazy as it sounds, Kate was inspired by her children’s love of computer gaming to write humorous books for middle grade kids in an effort to gently lure them away from their consoles, and sway them toward light, humorous, and sometimes wacky books that incorporate just enough elements of the gaming craze to keep them interested.

Judging by some of her reviews below, her goal has been achieved because more and more children who also love gaming are fostering a new found love of reading as well. Look out for Game on Boys 2 very soon!

Lonely World Trilogy Book 1

Lonely World Trilogy2015 RONE nominee, and winner of a 2014 MarCom Award for ebook cover!

The holy artifact bonded around Marisylia Malludar’s neck gives her incredible physical and magical powers—at a price. The bloody piece of vein is consuming Marisylia’s body inch by inch, her skeletal hands and feet only the beginning of a slow death. A cruel sorceress and her assassins are on the hunt for Marisylia to steal the artifact. Religious fanatics, volatile and unstable in their blind faith, also seek her to exploit the vein’s most dangerous purpose—liberating the erratic Creator of the World, Lysielle, from her 1,000 year incarceration. With the vein the key to Lysielle’s freedom, Marisylia must use her abilities to survive long enough to find Lysielle first. Then her most grim challenge awaits—deciding if the Creator has truly repented for attempting to destroy all life. To achieve global peace, Marisylia must discover faith in the unpredictable Lysielle or rely on her own instincts to set the world’s fate.

Laura sees a way to restore happiness to the man she still loves and cannot forget. She risks her life and chance of fulfillment to return to Regency times. Fortunately someone very special understands.

 

About Hide in Time author Anna Faversham:

Hide in Time author Anna FavershamWriting for others began when I approached my scary teacher and asked if I could start a class magazine. To my amazement, it got off the ground.

Then life happened, you know how it does: a proper job, marriage, children, housework and so on. But a love of writing finally erupted into regular scribbles when I was living in central Africa many miles from anything purporting to be a book shop. I’d run out of bedtime stories for the children, so I started tapping away.

Back in England, I’ve written and read for the BBC and published short stories.

I’d heard you should write about what you know so both my books are set in my home county of Kent. The time travel element in Hide in Time is pure imagination but much of the historical sections are based on fact. And it was all written in secret; I’ve no idea what my husband thought I was doing every evening on my pc.

My second book, One Dark Night, came about because in my husband’s distant ancestry there was a smuggler and I grew up near smugglers’ caves which fascinated me. There’s a sequel in progress.

Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever

fifty shadesBook 1 – Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever

Book 2 – Exit Strategy

Book 3 – Christmas with the White Brothers (a Novella)

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY to the second power meets Keisha and Jada from the Block.

Aspiring recording studio owners, Keisha Beale and Jada Jameson, score a rare meeting with venture capitalist Tristan White, and are thrust into a world beyond their
wildest imaginations.

Lured by Tristan White and his offer of fronting the capital for her business in
exchange for an indecent proposal, of sorts, Keisha finds herself with no other
option. Tortured by demons from her past, Keisha’s inability to come to terms
with them threatens to undermine the future of her business and her tumultuous,
unconventional relationship with Tristan White.

Erotic, amusing, and in places hilarious, the Ghetto Girl Romance Quadrilogy is a
parody with a unique take on a Fifty Shades-type story that will take you even
further into the BDSM world, and promises to make the vanilla original Fifty
Shades more colorful.

The first two books focus on Keisha and Tristan’s romance, and the final two will
focus on Jada and Nathan’s.

About Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever author L. V. Lewis

Fifty Shades by L. V. LewisGrowing up, L.V. Lewis wanted to be an internationally known rock star, but unfortunately, lived in the wrong part of the country to pursue that career (and neither American Idol nor The Voice were available then). An early love for the written word gave her the plan B she sought. Her career as a contract manager was not creative writing by a long shot, but it didn’t require her to spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars required for a law degree. It does pay the bills while she dabbles in the publishing world as an author on the evenings and weekends.

LV lives in Florida with her husband. They are the parents of four children, three of whom don’t think they need their parents anymore, so they share their home with a sweet female German Shepherd and an alpha male Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix who thinks he rules the world.
Her love for writing is only eclipsed by her love for her family.

About No Bells author: F. M. Meredith

F. M. MeredithAs F.M. Meredith I write the Rocky Bluff P.D. crime series. Many people know me as Marilyn Meredith, the author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series.

I became interested in writing about law enforcement when my son-in-law was a police officer and over coffee told me all about his adventures. He also took me on a ride-along and I was hooked. I belong to the Public Safety Writers Association and have many friends in law enforcement.

All of our children are grown and have blessed us with many grand and great-grandchildren. We used to live at the beach in a beach community much like Rocky Bluff. We now live in the foothills of the Southern Sierra with a resemblance to Bear Creek where Deputy Tempe Crabtree and her husband live.

Crossroads

crossroadsIn “Crossroads,” Don Gogniat has condensed what he’s learned through decades of travel and life in academia into a roadmap for how to develop a deeper understanding of the world around us. He focuses on 10 joyful travel tips with short personal stories to illustrate the significance of each tip. Also, it contains short lessons in finding ways to appreciate what you are looking at – a primer in cultural geography, a discipline that allows us to understand why places are as they are and form stronger connections with the places we visit.

 

 

About Crossroads author: Don Gogniat

crossroads author

Don Gogniat credits his parents – especially his father – for putting travel in his blood. When he was a youngster his parents would pack the family and set out from their home in Pittsburgh, Pa. to explore the country and the world. In that time, they visited every state in the U.S. — except North Dakota, Alaska and Hawaii (Gogniat crossed these off later in life); Canada; Mexico; Central America and Europe.

“We were never in a hurry,” Gogniat recalls in his book “Crossroads.” “These Adventures usually lasted anywhere from 10 through 12 weeks in the summer … although on rare occasions I would miss some school days in the spring or fall.”

He received a B.S. in Education from Indiana University of Pa. in 1970 and a M.A. in Gegraphy from IUP in 1973. After a three-year stint teaching seventh-grade world cultures, Gogniat joined the Peace Corps as a regional planner for the Costa Rican National Planning Office from 1974-75. This enabled him to pursue a PhD in Cultural Geography with an emphasis in Latin America from the University of Pittsburgh.
