Product DescriptionSherry always knew there was something out there. She's eighteen, works for a tabloid newspaper in Chicago and has a brother, Danny who is a lazy mooch. They live a pretty normal dull life with hippie parents and a normal existence. Then the moon disappears and people start to go missing only to reappear later, but different. Sherry has an abusive ex-boyfriend who shows up and claims to be one of these beings that have been showing up around the world. He's no longer the same person in that body. He tells her he has come to protect her and her brother and takes her underground, against her will to save her, where they meet others like them. She begins to unravel the truth about Merrick, about what he's really doing here, about the way he looks at her, about the crazy dangerous world they live in. Can he convince her that he's here to help? Will she like what she finds when she opens up to the truth? Will he be the one to love her when everyone else has failed? Will he be able to protect her?
Product DescriptionJovis McIntire's quiet life in the suburbs is turned upside down the day his mother-in-law wins $234 million in a multi-state lottery. She quickly makes an identical offer to all her children and their families: a large, custom-built home, and two million dollars cash.
But there's a catch, a nasty hook hidden inside the bait. If the deal is accepted, they will be required to live together on a newly-created cul-de-sac in southern California, for the remainder of the matriarch's life — a woman Jovis sarcastically calls Sunshine.
Not a chance!
And that would only be the beginning of it, he knows. The rest of his wife's family is no prize, either. Nancy the bohemian earth child with organic, free-range armpits, Kevin the pompous scarf-wearing intellectual, Sue the 400-pound attention junkie who throws herself down flights of stairs for sympathy… Jovis sees them all as kooks, in one way or another, and they want him to live amongst them? Not for a million bucks! Or two million, even.
But his defiance begins to fade when Jovis returns to his job, and realizes he's now there by choice.

Product DescriptionOn her last day of high school, Cassandra Devlin walked out of exams and into a forest. Surrounded by the wrong sort of trees, and animals never featured in any nature documentary, Cass is only sure of one thing: alone, she will be lucky to survive.
The sprawl of abandoned blockish buildings Cass discovers offers her only more puzzles. Where are the people? What is the intoxicating mist which drifts off the buildings in the moonlight? And why does she feel like she's being watched?
Increasingly unnerved, Cass is overjoyed at the arrival of the formidable Setari. Whisked to a world as technologically advanced as the first was primitive, where nanotech computers are grown inside people's skulls, and few have any interest in venturing outside the enormous whitestone cities, Cass finds herself processed as a 'stray', a refugee displaced by the gates torn between worlds. Struggling with an unfamiliar language and culture, she must adapt to virtual classrooms, friends who can teleport, and the ingrained attitude that strays are backward and slow.
Can Cass ever find her way home? And after the people of her new world discover her unexpected value, will they be willing to let her leave?
Product Description“A must read for any fan of dark fiction. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.”
It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf.
Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it; until the night he was butchered by a werewolf--the night a full moon ruined his life.
Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Winterfox, once a werewolf hunter, trains the boy to be a warrior--teaching him how to block out pain, stalk, fight, and kill.
Bit by bit all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed to the hunt. Now, Sylvester’s hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast’s bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns it takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf…
To kill a werewolf, it takes a hunter with a perfect willingness to die.
“A pleasure to read.”
“Thick with plot, description and a fevered violence ... Easton uses his extensive knowledge of the occult and government agencies to bring a dizzying authenticity to this novel.”

***JIM ASHLEY ON FIFTH AVENUE AND RUNNING OF THE BULLS***
Smith is this generation's Master storyteller. If you're a fan of suspense thrillers and unbelievable twists and turns, you will quickly become a fan of Christopher Smith! He entices you to fall in love with his characters only to be caught totally off guard when their fate goes in a direction you never saw coming. He takes the styles of James Patterson and Steven King to a totally kicking level. I can honestly say that I spent way too many late night hours reading chapters because I could not put it down and couldn't wait to see what he would do next. Starting with Fifth Avenue, he builds such entertaining and deep characters that you know this cannot be the end but just the start to future stories interweaving these strong individuals. With Running of the Bulls, you're so caught in the action - that you're honestly rooting for the characters that would historically be the bad guys in other tales. Christopher seems to set the bar higher and higher for himself, and I can't wait for his upcoming releases in 2012. A definite must read for mystery, suspense, and thriller lovers!
***PLANET KINDLE ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***
"Fifth Avenue, the first novel by penned Christopher Smith, is a fantastic first effort and was the reason I was simply unable to put my Kindle down over this Christmas period. And I would go as far to say that it ranks as one of the best first novels I’ve ever read."--PLANET KINDLE
***P.M. RICHTER ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***
"Fifth Avenue. A big, big novel. A blockbuster? Yes. A bestseller. It should be. The author, at the beginning of the novel, thanks the people who introduced him to the 'real' Fifth Avenue. I suspect the real one could not be as interesting or engrossing as this novel. ...This is a highly recommended novel. It deserves the five stars." -- P.M. RICHTER
***JENNIFER LONG ON RUNNING OF THE BULLS***
"Christopher Smith did it again. This book is packed with suspense, and delivers both characters that you will love and loathe. A time or two near the end, I found myself actually on the side of the villains and I really hope those two show up in Park Avenue. The story moves quickly...as most of the action all happens in one day. Makes it terribly difficult to put down. Smith paints a great picture of every character- I found myself chuckling aloud a time or two. Well written, well planned- I am definitely going to be reading more from this author. Can't wait for Park Avenue!" --JENNIFER LONG

Product DescriptionA 200-year-old treasure waiting to be reclaimed.
Abby Thomas’ 11-year-old student Merri is finally warming up to her. And her friendship with John Roberts is also heating up. He’s definitely marriage material. Except for the fact that when she tells him about Beautiful Houses he thinks she’s crazy.
Because a computer program that allows you to rewind and fast-forward the lives of people from long ago is surely pure fantasy. But then John sees for himself that it’s not.
Together they use Beautiful Houses to help the “Old Dears” next door with their family tree. Rummaging around in their history, they discover that the 85-year-old twins have been keeping a secret from each other since 1941. And the ladies’ ancestors have a few secrets of their own, too.
Convicted in 1871 of murder and arson, Reuben Buchanan is a blight on the Old Dears’ family name. But was he really guilty? Abby and John must get inside the mind of a murderer to find out.
But there are also heroes in the ladies’ family tree—like Reuben’s ancestor Nathan Buchanan. Abby and John’s amazing software takes them on a virtual trip back to 1803 when Nathan log cabin sat just outside Lewis and Clark’s Camp River Dubois where the men spent the winter gathering supplies and training for their cross-continental expedition.
Nathan Buchanan’s cabin was added onto through the years, and at one time it was a stage coach inn called Shake Rag Corner. Today it is a condemned derelict. But while watching its history unfold, Abby and John discover a 200-year-old treasure waiting to be reclaimed—and that God’s promise to bless a thousand generations really is true.

Product DescriptionAlexa Hartfield. Author, local celebrity, fashion connoisseur. She chose Fairbury for its close proximity to Rockland, its small town atmosphere, and its low crime rate.
Then someone made her life a literary cliché. A mysterious accident with a light bulb sparked an interesting idea for her latest novel—and for Fairbury’s new serial killer. The first replication infuriated her. The second left an even worse taste in her mouth. The third blasted more than her self-confidence, and the fourth beat her down so far she’s considering giving up writing completely.
Who is killing Fairbury’s citizens, and furthermore, why and how are they using her novels to do it?

Praise for TRUE COLOURS:
“A masterful tale of secrets and romance, wrapped in intrigue and tied with love” Amazon bestseller Sally Clements
"This is how romance novel should be written - the characters are sexy, interesting, independent, and believable and don't even start me on the setting... !" M Scott
"Loved it, couldn't put it down. This is a wonderful mystery romance and you don't find out the major "What?" until the very end of the book." Addicted to Books
"True Colours is an intelligent romance with pace, plot and oh so much passion. Sexy and sassy, it is one of those books that once you get started you can't put down, and yearn for your bed all day so you can pick it up again when you turn in for the night...The last time I enjoyed a book this much was when I read one of Jilly Cooper's doorstops, and True Colours has all the raunchy (but none of the racehorses) page-turning qualities..." KTK
"I absolutely loved everything about this book. In fact with so many five star reviews you are all going to think the author is paying us. It's just a really enjoyable story. I found myself rooting for both of the main characters. It's rare to find a book where their is conflict between two characters yet you can be rooting for both of them to have happiness. Their love story is very romantic. I was expecting a typical romance storyline, but this book weaves in a bit of suspense. Nothing too scary which is perfect for me. It is truly a beautiful story. I even enjoyed reading about the other not-so-nice characters in the book. This author knows how to paint pictures with words. I will be looking for more from her in the future." Sue Sells Stuff, Longwood, Florida
Product DescriptionA powerful, well-written and poignant college novel about the intense emotions stirred up by an all-consuming first love. Colin and Karl are best friends & college sophomores enjoying an adventurous social life at a preppy, upstate New York college. However, when Colin meets beautiful, green eyed Jasmine from California everything in his life is soon turned upside down.
With drop dead gorgeous Jasmine from Laguna Beach you never know what will happen next and every date is truly an adventure. Funny as hell with characters that feel completely real & you won't read a better coming of age story about teenage angst and first love than this one.
What readers are saying:
"This book seems like a real classic to me, something you remember for a long time afterwards. Anyone who's interested in love, relationships, treachery, decency and the sadness of loss and the excitement of new relationships, or of someone entering adulthood and not knowing how to handle it, will like this book. It's absorbing, and it's heart warming. Most of all it's got a lead character you can really like. It's a feelgood book that really makes you think. Start reading it and you won't want to put it down. Don't miss it, I believe it's going to be a classic."
"Colin falls for the incredibly beautiful, but flawed Jasmine, and can hardly believe his luck when his feelings are reciprocated. As in life though, things don't necessarily go smoothly, but throughout the tale my attention was held and I was bound in, by the well drawn characters I cared for deeply...I was with Colin every step of his journey, feeling all of the highs and lows with him. It is a story told from the male perspective, but I suspect this romantic drama will appeal to both sexes. College life is described so well, so that the reader gets an authentic feel for student life."
"A great book...Enjoyed this book very much Colin to me was a great main character as he meets Chester I begin with some great laughs between the conversation that they both have together. One of my favorite talks they had was when Chester tells Colin "take a drag of this it will take you to Disneyland". I just LOLOLOL there was some sadness, but the laughter, & enjoyment I received from reading this book it was great 5 stars Bert Murray."
"I love the author's natural, conversational writing style. The story is very well written and the pace is excellent, it held my rapt attention right to the very end. I like the way the story made me feel as if I were actually an observer, watching events unfold as they happened, rather than merely reading about them after the fact. The story-line and characters are so utterly realistic and believable that I kept forgetting this book is a work of fiction."
"From the first page, I was drawn into Colin Preston's world and completely immersed in it. I needed to know what happened to Colin and his friends. They are real people instead of characters in a book. I have known them. The story takes place in a college setting, but the conflict is ageless. Most of us have been in this situation or a similar one. We are fascinated by love and its power to fill us with ecstasy or to make us miserable. I enjoy movies because I am in the scene, seeing the actors and listening to their words all at once. Somehow, Bert Murray is able to convey the same feeling. With perfect clarity, the best choice of words, and a little pixie dust, he created a world so real to me that I was surprised when I realized I'd just been reading my Kindle in my favorite chair. I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially if you're older and sometimes wish to be young again."

Product DescriptionAMAZON BESTSELLING AUTHOR STEVEN JAY GRIFFEL'S EVERYMAN NOVEL
THE DEADLINE is the story of David Grossman, a Baby Boomer approaching sixty who loses his high-paying corporate job, forcing him to review his options and priorities. Desperate for a last chance at personal fulfillment, David makes a one-year deal with his wife. If he fails, his life-long dream is likely over and he must return to the corporate grind, “a life lived under the steady lash.”

THE DEADLINE is a truly engaging story, as only Steven Jay Griffel could write, about people fighting to achieve their dreams, no matter what the odds.
