One Summer in France: two girls in a tent
by Bev Spicer

A Bev and Carol adventure Book 1

The summer of 1979 was the best summer ever! Pretty, blonde and dangerously impetuous, Bev and Carol head for the sun, lucky beneficiaries of a generous university grant.

They are full of enthusiasm and the dazzling spirit of adventure that only seems possible when we are young. Essential swimwear is selected and Lipton’s vegetable oil is perfumed with patchouli for the perfect tan.

They end up in Argelès-sur-mer, on a campsite close to the coast and not far from the border with Spain. Every day brings new challenges: how to hold a meaningful conversation on a naturist beach, what to do about a precocious teenage stalker, how to transport a gallon of port on a moped… all of which they meet head-on, with dubious philosophy and irrepressible optimism.

'One Summer in France' is a humorous tale based on a three-month study break the author took as part of her languages degree course at Keele University in 1979.

‘Would you do it all again?’ asked Carol.

‘Like a shot!’ I said.

And I would.

Author's Note: There are three Bev and Carol adventures, which are all stand-alone books. For those who would like to know the order, here it is: 'One Summer in France', 'Bunny on a Bike' and 'Stranded in the Seychelles'.

The Wolf Tattoo
by
Kenneth Fore

DescriptionA man’s impromptu journey into the Alaskan wilderness is life changing when he tangles with a grizzly and an Eskimo woman who thwarts his attempts to escape. She takes him on an unforgettable journey where they must fight wilderness crazies and mysterious beasts that skulk through the forest like nothing you have ever seen. When they reached her clan’s winter campgrounds it is an unbelievable place isolated in the middle of the arctic wilderness and it is protected by huge wolves called Saluuettes.

Ours
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionWhile Sheriff Wilson has no idea what really transpired the night twelve people were murdered in the old mental hospital during what was supposed to be a simple night of ghost hunting, he was at the scene moments after the lone survivor committed suicide. Now it’s a year later and a group of paranormal investigators want to set up a haunted house and invite the general public in that same abandoned mental hospital. How is he supposed to keep that many people safe from whoever or whatever killed the last group?

The Sea of Storms
by
Mark Whiteway

DescriptionOn the planet Kelanni, life is cheap.

With the aid of the fearsome "Keltar" enforcers, in their flying cloaks, a ruthless invader is forcing the native people to mine the colloquially named "lodestone" - a substance from another universe with infinitely destructive power.


Scorn Kills
by
Suzi Albracht

DescriptionWilliam Branch is a married man living his dream. He’s a True Crime author with 15 wildly popular books to his name. He’s sought after for television appearances and has even sold the movie rights for one book. As he likes to brag — he is the King of True Crime. Now Bill’s not the best looking guy nor does he have muscles to flash, what he does have is money and lots of it — he’s got his and his wife, Bianca’s. Without a doubt, he married into money and he’s not ashamed to spend it. But his wife doesn't mind as long as he’s faithful.

For The Love Of Honey
by
Mira Kolar-Brown

DescriptionIs the death of a policeman's wife in any way related to the death of a retired gynaecologist just a couple of weeks earlier? Or, was the gynaecologist’s death an accident and someone later used the same MO to confuse the situation?

DI Simon Grant would have had his work cut out for him even if it wasn't for the uncomfortable fact that it is all happening practically on his doorstep, that one of the victims is a member of his extended family and the other one the wife of a colleague.


A Sacred Journey
by
Doreen Cox

DescriptionEscaping at night from her home into a nearby forest, Leah is expected by the animals that live there.

It is here that Leah will encounter an unexpected connection, one that is significant to enhance a sacred ever-after experience.

A Cold Day for Murder
by

DescriptionKate Shugak returns to her roots in the far Alaskan north, after leaving the Anchorage D.A.'s office. Her deductive powers are definitely needed when a ranger disappears. Looking for clues among the Aleutian pipeliners, she begins to realize the fine line between lies and loyalties--between justice served and cold murder.

DescriptionAuthor Vonda Norwood is too attracted to a fellow Indie Author. He's married. So she does everything humanly possible to avoid him. She notices he's stalking her at the Indie Authors Convention. Avoiding him becomes very difficult. Especially when he grabs her and pulls her into his cabin.

This is a sexual comedy. This is Vonda Norwood's true sexual fantasy. But it is not sexually explicit. Just almost. :-D
