Indie Books for Black Friday & Cyber Monday!

Unless you're on the west coast, most of the heavy Black Friday shopping is done.  Why not kick back now with a book?  And since Saturday is Small Business Saturday, why not buy an indie author's book?  We're each like a small business ourselves.  Here are some recently released or upcoming titles:

Some Thanksgiving Stories by Briane Pagel:  Sure Thanksgiving was yesterday (or last month if you're Canadian) but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy this book of short stories!

Everybody talks about Thanksgiving, but nobody does anything about it. UNTIL NOW. I have written the definitive collection of Thanksgiving short stories, 'definitive' meaning that every story in this collection at least mentions Thanksgiving. But some do more so: I have written a series of stories each centered around one Thanksgiving menu item. In "Turkey," you'll learn why it might be better to deep-fry your turkey. Stuffing introduces sure-to-be-classic character "The regular mouse," and a discussion of things you can stuff. And so on, through every course of a Thanksgiving dinner, finishing with the magical story "Pumpkin Pie."

The collection also includes the shorts "Pompeii" and "A Happy Story About The Universe, And Stuff," which, as promised, is happy! (And about both the universe as well as stuff!)

And right now it's FREE!  And only 99 cents after the sale ends!

Seasons' Beginnings (The Season Avatars Book 1) by Sandra Ulbrich Almazan:  The latest novel from the author of the Lyon's Legacy series!

Kron Evenhanded is an artificer, able to enchant any man-made object, but he finds people more difficult to work with. When he visits the city of Vistichia, he encounters Sal-thaath, an extremely magical but dangerous child created by Salth, another magician Kron knew at the Magic Institute. Kron attempts to civilize Sal-thaath, but when his efforts lead to tragedy, Kron is forced to ally himself with a quartet of new deities and their human Avatars. Together they must defend Vistichia as Salth attempts to drain its life and magic. But Salth has Ascended halfway to godhood over Time. Will Kron’s artifacts be enough to protect the Avatars, especially the woman he loves, or will Time separate them?

It's only $2.99 right now, or you can get it free with Kindle Unlimited or Amazon Prime.

What Time is the Tea Kettle? by Andrew Leon A pair of short stories from the author of the Shadow Spinner series!

An offbeat, comic fantasy about a man with a cat that can walk on air (and walls and ceilings) and a tea kettle that has a grudge against clocks. The two, the cat and the tea kettle, don't like each other much, either.
Also includes the novelette "Soul Cakes" with the same man and his cat and what happens when they meet a little girl whose own cat has gone missing. And why the man doesn't like Halloween.

It's only $2.99 right now, or you can get it free with Kindle Unlimited or Amazon Prime.

Tripler by Neil Vogler:  Get this book starting on Tuesday December 2 from the co-author of We Are Now and Deadly Sins!

In the near future an impossible virus is giving people the ability to summon two identical physical copies of themselves into existence at any time and in any situation – sending them murderously insane as a side-effect. They call the infected 'Triplers'.

Harry Allwear is a specialist tracker working to eradicate the Tripler threat, a disciplined, highly-trained ex-soldier with an impressive kill record. He's also a Tripler himself, kept sane only by experimental medication, nicotine, and an obsession with the music of David Bowie. Distrusted by the boss of his organisation and considered a liability and a wild card by those in power, he's a Tripler hunting others of his kind in order to serve the greater good – and keep his sanity-preserving medication coming.

But when a Tripler bomber wreaks havoc in his home city of London, Harry discovers his tracker colleagues murdered, his organisation devastated, and the doctor who created his medication kidnapped. Out of meds, low on resources, and burning with a desire for payback, Harry learns the startling truth: the Triplers have unified into an army, and are engineering a radical new dawn for the planet Earth.

Harry may be the only one equipped to stop the coming war, but he has a serious problem: his sanity is already slipping away. And the most lethal enemy of all could be one of his own selves…

You can pre-order it for 99 cents!  And get the introductory stories Tripler: The Beginning for free!

And of course you can get my pen name's latest opus:
Transformed for Christmas by Eric Filler, a special holiday edition of the bestselling Transformed gender swap series!

The classic Christmas tale is reborn in this new story by the author of the bestselling Transformed gender swap series! Edward Scrouge is a greedy businessman who puts profits above people. Then on Christmas night he's visited by three ghosts, who transform him into a woman from his past, his present, and his future in order to teach him the true meaning of Christmas.
