Then it”s back home to burrow into the darkest reaches of the German occupation in search of the treasure.

Through Gilly’s Eyes: Memoirs of a Guide Dog
Matthew VanFossan
4.9 Out of 5 Stars (20 Reviews)
Genre: Crafts, Hobbies & Home | Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time


Meet Guildenstern, aka Gilly, self-described as “one of the handsomest dogs at guide dog school.” Definitely not your ordinary yellow Labrador!

When he is paired with Matt, a newly-blinded young college student, there begins a relationship which transcends the ordinary bond between dog and man.

From guide dog school to college and on to Brazil, Gilly relates their adventures with humor and wisdom. Readers will look at the world in new ways after seeing it through Gilly’s eyes.


“Matt and I made our first solo foray onto campus. I had no idea where we were going, and Matt, it turned out, had only a vague one. The two of us made an extremely awkward team.

As we started off down the block, he began counting his steps in a low voice.

Smart boy, I thought. I wouldn’t be able to find our house on the very first return trip. He’d be able to cue me on the way back.

Unfortunately, walking and counting at the same time didn’t seem to be one of his strengths. I distinctly heard him say the number ‘sixty’ twice. Then, I heard him curse. Finally, we reached the intersection.

‘Two hundred and fourteen,’ he announced.

Give or take a few dozen, I thought.

The Kommandant’s Mistress
Alexandria Constantinova Sz…
3.7 Out of 5 Stars (46 Reviews)
Genre: Historical Fiction | World Literature

FREE for a limited time

The rumors spread by the Camp’s inmates, other Nazi officers, and the Kommandant’s own family insist that she was his “mistress”, but was she, voluntarily? Told from three different perspectives, that of the formerly idealistic Kommandant, the young Jewish inmate who captivates him, and the ostensibly objective historical biographies of the protagonists, this novel examines one troubling moral question over and over: if your staying alive was the only “good” during the War, if your survival was your sole purpose in this horrific world of the Concentration Camps, whether you were Nazi or Jewish, what, exactly, would you do to survive? Would you lie, cheat, steal, kill, submit?

Flashing back and forth through the narrators’ memories as they recall their time before, during, and after the War, and leading, inevitably, to their ultimate, shocking confrontation.

Babe on Board – A Harry McGlade/Jack Daniels Mystery
Jack Kilborn
3.9 Out of 5 Stars (19 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

FREE for a limited time

Private detective Harry McGlade is on the prowl, looking for a one-night stand. Or, in McGlade’s case, a five-minute stand. When he finds a sexy lady at his local bar, he thinks he has a chance with her. But she isn’t alone. There’s a guy with her. A guy with a gun whom she’s desperately trying to get away from. When the local mafia becomes involved with McGlade’s tryst, things start going bad. Then they go really bad when a baby comes into the picture. And the only one McGlade can turn to for help is his old partner, Lt. Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels.

Babe on Board is an 11,000 word novella (about 50 pages long), written by bestselling Kindle author J.A. Konrath, and romantic suspense author Ann Voss Peterson (who has over 3 million books in print.)

It’s a hysterically funny, and sometimes poignant, look at sex, relationships, pregnancy, and fatherhood. It also has guns and violence and criminals and double-crosses and twists. Ann and J.A. are confident that it will appeal to fans of mysteries, thrillers, and even romance (as long as the reader keeps tongue firmly in cheek.)

This ebook also features a brand new excerpt from FLEE, a spy novel co-written by Konrath and Peterson.

(This was previously released under the title JAILBAIT.)

Pressure Cooker Recipe Book: Fast Cooking Under Extreme Pressure
Maria Holmes
3.8 Out of 5 Stars (19 Reviews)
Genre: Cookbooks, Food & Wine

FREE for a limited time

REVISED EDITION – Now includes imperial and metric measurements

Maria Holmes, author of the AMAZON BEST SELLER “Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipe Book: 30 Easy Set It & Forget It Meals” returns with her newest cookbook:”Pressure Cooker Recipe Book: Fast Cooking Under Extreme Pressure”.

Having shared the many advantages of slow-cooking in her last book, Maria is now pleased to share the equally beneficial joys of pressure cooking.

Pressure cookers have been vilified first for their lack of safety and then ridiculed for their crocheting granny recipes. Now equipped with new safety mechanisms, today’s pressure cookers are safer than ever. And as you will discover in this cookbook, gone are the days of the bland and uninspired pressure cooker meals.

In addition to cooking foods in a fraction of the normal time with just the push of a few buttons, pressure cookers promise so much more. Completely self-contained, there are models that offer automatic timers and multiple functions, so you can brown meats and sauté vegetables before pressure cooking, perhaps simmer in-between steps, and keep a dish warm after it’s done. Some models double as rice cookers, steamers and even slow cookers to seal the deal.

We already know that roasts, soups and beans come out tasty, tender and delicious from the pressure cooker.But today’s pressure cookers can do so much more.

Pressure cooking prevents the oxidation of veggies, using the steamer basket preserves the water-soluble vitamins, the sealed top keep the vitamins from evaporating away, and the quick cooking helps to retain more minerals that could be destroyed by longer cooking times.The result will be more flavour, more color and a retention of up to 95% of vitamins and minerals (vs. regular cooking, which only retains about 40%).

Every single recipe in this cookbook has been personally selected, tried and tested by Maria to ensure that each one delivers quick, delicious, and easy to make meal that the entire family will enjoy.

And talking about quick and easy, Maria has ensured that readers will find the exact recipes they are looking for with little to no trouble at all. Thus, she has divided her cookbook into the following seven distinct chapters:

  • Chapter 1:Appetizers
  • Chapter 2: Soups
  • Chapter 3: Vegetables
  • Chapter 4: Meats
  • Chapter 5: Poultry
  • Chapter 6: Seafood
  • Chapter 7: Desserts

The cookbook also comes with general guidelines for its use, quick reference cooking tips and a comprehensive table of cooking times for fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish.

So if you’re ready to discover creative new recipes for making everything from appetizers to desserts while saving time, nutrient and energy, then you will surely enjoy Maria Holmes’ “Pressure Cooker Recipe Book:Fast Cooking Under Extreme Pressure”.
