Let There Be Books!

*First a note from Sarah — Okay, because there was confusion before — I did not read these books and they’re not personal recommendations.  They’re books my readers send in to promote.

I’ll turn this over to the Oyster, but before I do, this week I have something on countdown sale.  I think Crawling Between Heaven and Earth is on sale for 99c for another 24h give or take after which it will creep slowly back up to 7.99.

This book contains my first published shorts and is a good snapshot of who I was at that time.

Btw, it’s number one in fantasy anthologies (It’s not, it’s a collection, but what does Amazon know.)  Thank you. – SAH*


Good morning, Huns and Hoydens! Another fabulous weekend is upon us, and to get you started we’ve a small selection of books for your enjoyment. Do remember, please, to go leave reviews for the books once you’ve read them, whether to praise them or offer constructive critiques. One more note, since there seems to have been some confusion recently: these books have not been reviewed, curated, or endorsed by Our Beloved Hostess or myself. The Beautiful but Evil Space Princess is simply providing a platform for the writers among the commentariat (and occasional lurkers) to advertise free of charge, and I simply put it all together. No warranty, guarantee, deputy, Model T, contract, compact, hijack, fel pact, gentleman’s agreement, endorsement vehement, negotiated easement, pachyderms indecent (in case of bereavement), handfast, hold fast, bypass, repast, top caste, bombast, or martial satisfaction on the bloody field of honor is, has been, or ever will be provided. *catches breath* [Ed.: But he doesn’t know the territory!] So, if you have words for sales or rent, future entries can (and should!) be sent to my email. Happy reading!

Champion for Hire

Portals of Infinity: Book One

William is just your typical engineer fresh out of college with a stressful job, a boring life, and not a lot of prospects of anything better in the future.

Until one weekend while hiking in the woods he stumbles across a portal to another time, or perhaps another place. The more he investigates this new world the more he realizes that it may just be able to offer him a lot more than the one he’s been living in.

However, there are forces at work beyond anything that Will has ever come across before and the local Goddess seems to have taken a liking to him. Will may soon find himself getting an offer he cannot afford to refuse.

The Pericles Conspiracy

William is just your typical engineer fresh out of college with a stressful job, a boring life, and not a lot of prospects of anything better in the future.

On sale at Amazon this weekend

Josephine Ishikawa’s last shift as Captain of the starliner Pericles changed the course of history, but no one knows about it. The powers that be took charge as soon as she got back to Earth, with only a select few permitted to learn about the beings she encountered during the run from Gliese, or the eggs they entrusted to her care.

Satisfied that the government would make good on her commitment to return the eggs home, Jo returned to her job of getting Pericles through a major maintenance overhaul and then back out to the stars. But when she learns that the authorities reneged and have begun experimenting on the eggs instead, she faces a difficult choice: keep the life and career she loves or embark on a quest to rescue the eggs and keep the promise she made to their dying parents, out in the depths of space. That quest could cost her more than she ever imagined as it plunges her into a shadow war against a planetary government that will stop at nothing to keep its secrets.

Also available from these fine booksellers:

  1. I could have sworn I sent mine in. Guess not :/

  2. Always a lot of good books here– Thanks Free Oyster and Sarah

  3. What is the difference between a collection and an anthology?

  4. Amazon managed to impress me today.
    I went to buy Crawling and Amazon told me I’d already purchased it a year ago. Just read the first two stories and dang kiddo you were good even back then, if a bit loquacious.
    Will read a couple more then enter my comments on Amazon.

  5. I have a bunch of these stories already, but 99 cents for the rest? Who could resist?

  6. John is a friend of mine, and he’s very excited, his book is rocketing up the rankings, well into the top 50 in a couple of Sword and Sorcery categories.
