Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Can you believe September is halfway over? It doesn’t seem like it, but after last week’s cooler temperatures, a lot of rain and leaves starting to slowly change colors where I’m at, I’m starting to believe it. I’m not looking forward to winter, especially not this year when the farmer’s almanac is saying more snow this year. I don’t like snow. I like it even less when I have to shovel it.
But autumn is definitely in the air. I often burn candles during fall and winter and this year I have an apple pie candle in my office and out in the living room I have a candy corn candle. Yes, I love the smell of candy corn.
We have some amazing books for you this week, including some free books – don’t forget about the Back to School Free Book Giveaway!

Birth of Heavy Metal Complete Boxed Set
Here’s your chance to get the complete series boxed set in one place!
You thought you understood the Zoo? I’m here to tell you it’s so much more than anyone ever thought!
HE WAS NOT PREPARED.
Born from the fertile imagination of bestselling author Michael Anderle
Fountain of Youth, or Valley of Death?
While eating his supper of microwave popcorn, PhD student-genius Salinger Jacobs is grabbed from his apartment in California, stuck on a C-130 military plane and sent to the Sahara Desert to witness the reality of the ZOO for himself.
With the life expectancy of untrained scientists working inside the ZOO measured in hours, he has a lot to learn.
First order of business?
How do you shoot a gun, and just HOW MUCH is that plant worth?
The government needs the best of the best military and scientific minds working out how to pull the secrets from the ZOO, while keeping the deadly fauna and flora in check.
There is one major problem, Salinger doesn’t even have a PhD.
If he can stay alive long enough, he might be able to afford something besides packaged microwave popcorn to eat.
THAT IS A BIG IF.

- He Was Not Prepared
- She is His Witness
- Backstabbing Little Assets
- Blood of My Enemies

Magitech Legacy Series Sale
Relic Hunting is Dangerous Business
Space pirates, dragons, undead and worse lurk in the darkened corridors of the derelict Great Ships, the remains of the once mighty Vagrant Fleet. These ancient hulks are powered by a combination of magic and technology, created by gods we no longer remember or understand.
Every new ship offers a million ways to die, but those ships have ancient magic our sector hasn’t seen in millennia. The kind of magic that will keep my ship flying, and maybe help me find answers. Where did our people come from, and how did we end up marooned in this system?
Those answers haven’t been important until now. Our world is tumbling into the sun, and the clock is ticking. Either we get at least one Great Ship active, or everyone dies. No pressure right?
A new series in the Amazon Bestselling Magitech Chronicles universe. Want to make your own characters? The Magitech Chronicles RPG allows you to be part of the action long after you finish the books. Learn more at magitechchronicles.com or by googling Magitech Chronicles World Anvil.

Join Us, or Die and Join Anyway
I hate necromancers. They’re sneaky, and underhanded, and…damned effective. My father’s ghost is going to be reshaped into an assassin sent to kill my mother unless I dance for Necrotis, an unliving goddess and ruler of the Maker’s Wrath.
A storm rages across the void, with winds upwards of two thousand kilometers a second in some places, the Catalyst known as Sanctuary. The Unseen Fleets lurk somewhere within, and emerge to harvest miners working the asteroids and moons flung out of the storm. Necrotis wants me to fly inside, find a city that predates the Great Cycle, and find a way inside when no one ever has before.
No pressure, right?
If I didn’t need enough incentive here’s some more. My mother promised the Confederate Pantheon that I’d fly into the storm to find answers while they marshal their forces for war. No one asked me, or my crew. I wish I could give them the middle finger, and take the Remora and run, but if I do?
Well… I have a feeling the whole galaxy is going to burn. I need to save my father. I need to find out what’s hiding in that storm, and then turn it on the people trying to use me. I’ll get answers all right, but not the ones they want.
Legend of the Sword Bearer
It’s the most advanced human consciousness simulation in existence.
…and Steve Benson is the next test subject
On his deathbed, he is made an offer he dare not refuse: fade away as the darkness takes him or have his consciousness transferred into a game—Tempest Online.
Leaving the broken husk he once called a body behind, Steve becomes Abalonious, a warrior possessed of strength, cunning, and the power to make a difference, but with that power comes a far greater responsibility.
The deal he accepted comes with a catch: if he fails, the game he’s grown to cherish is over and he’ll die—permanently.
Join Abalonious, hero of Tempest, as he strives against all odds to adapt, learn, and build himself into the greatest champion the game has ever seen.
“To sum it up, Jeremy took a Fantasy, SciFi, and a gaming idea, and mashed them together skillfully, pushing Legend of the Sword Bearer to the same quality of Ready Player One.
We at NeoLeaf Press give this book our Gold Recommendation and rate it 5 out of 5 stars.”
“Quick, clean action, solid character work and pacing. This series is worth your time.” — Jim Butcher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files
