Product DescriptionKeira Maddock has never considered herself a lady. In fact, she often acts in ways that would be considered downright un-ladylike. A hired killer and thief whose only goal is to provide the necessities of life for herself and her sister, she has learned to be brutally effective in her trade, with skills as sharp as the weapons she prefers. And when the head of a huge, shadowy corporation hires her to remove a powerful and wealthy opponent, Keira is happy to oblige. Until she meets him...
Scott Maddock is a hardened Terenian soldier-for-life. His job, to uphold the motto of the realm: "Reliance on Citizens Makes Us Great!" Soldiers work for the Gov, and the Gov is run by heads of corporations. But where do Scott's loyalties really lie? Only he and his best friend know for sure.
April Maddock is trying to make it on her own and has taken a job with a wealthy family. She has chosen not to fight the system like Keira, nor to fight for the Gov like Scott. Unlike her siblings, she recognizes the good in everyone. Even so, outside appearances can be deceiving. April knows that better than most.
Infested with greed and divided by power, the realm of Terene bears remarkable resemblance to our own society. But opposite despair, there is always hope. Whereas Keira Maddock brings destruction, Guy Bensen brings promise. Wealthy and powerful, yet thoughtful and caring, he is an anomaly who throws her completely off guard. When she learns of his connections to Scott and April, Keira knows she has made the right decision in not only sparing his life but in joining his cause.
In book one of the Reliance on Citizens trilogy, S.L. Wallace introduces a world divided in which not everyone is who he seems to be. In a seamless blend of action, sci-fi, romance and political suspense, we are encouraged to consider the bonds that makes us human.
"The action keeps you guessing and the story doesn't let you down." Melissa Wright
"For a debut novel, Price of a Bounty, delivers. The story gradually becomes more complex as it goes, interweaving multiple stories. I really like the technique Wallace uses with chapters, in that she keeps the same setting for subsequent chapters but from different characters' points-of-view. It's a technique you don't see often, and it's used well here." Marc Buhmann
"Somewhat reminiscent of George Orwell's iconic masterpiece, 1984, this book thrives on it's political influences while it creates a diverse narrative following several characters' viewpoints." Andrew Augustine
Product DescriptionWhat could be sweeter than a free home in the beautiful town of Astral, Pennsylvania? Well, for Steven and his family, staying alive would be pretty nice.
When Steven inherits a beautiful home and large piece of land from his grandparents, the family is thrilled to move from the stuffy city to the inviting countryside. There's lots of land for the children to explore, a great house, and helpful neighbors. But for Steven, the house comes equipped with ghost stories from his youth, a spooky well, and spookier relatives.
Steven and his wife, Tara, are on a mission to figure out who is behind the strange things they're experiencing. From abductions to hidden rooms, the house is full of surprises and scares for both the family and the reader. And the story has so many twists and shocking developments, you won't be able to look away!
Perhaps the greatest part of this book is that the author, Kimberly Raiser, is willing to sacrifice characters in order to fully tell the story. This certainly isn't a book where you can figure out exactly who is going to live just by reading the first chapter. Not even the children are safe from the action!
~All Book Review
Kimberly Raiser resides in Virginia with her family and her dreams. Granddaughter of Henry Kunicki, whom grew up with noted physicist David Bohm; science fiction is no stranger to her craft. The Family Bones will bring chills and thrills and a few laughs along the way.

Reckoned by many to be the most extraordinary book amongst Robert Rankin’s many extraordinary books, The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag is a dark exploration of the occult which in combination with his unique brand of savage humour, creates a Techno-Gothic masterpiece that will have you laughing and shivering by turns.
The Dance of the Voodoo Handbag can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, but for full explanation of the weirdness therein contained, it forms the second instalment of the “Completely Barking Mad” Trilogy in which it is preceded by Sprout Mask Replica, and the series concludes with Waiting for Godalming.

Read an excerpt:
I woke to the sound of screaming.
I was pretty sure it wasn’t me. High, shrill, continuous. No, definitely not me. Metallic, close to my skull. Of course. My proximity transceiver was going crazy. I should have realized. Damn, when had I gotten so sloppy?
Demon nearby! The transceiver screamed. Get up and fight!
I tried to obey but when I moved my legs, a wave of pain burned through my lower body. A damage report flashed in red letters before my eyes: compound fracture to left femur. Severe blood loss. Fracture to right patella. Ribs 4-7 fractured on left side. Punctured lung. Respiratory system compromised. Advice: Don’t move. Wait for evacuation.
Yeah, like I needed to be told. I knew I was beat up like hell. For a moment I teetered on the edge of consciousness. I couldn’t pass out again. If I did, I was dead. The demon was setting off my transceiver. That meant it was still alive. And close.
