Author Ioana Visan is pleased to announce the release of her apocalyptic novella Human Instincts:
Dr. Deanna Nichols is a geneticist searching for a cure to save the world. After the war nearly destroyed it by releasing an aggressive virus, it was the vaccine that killed the humanity’s chances for progress and survival. Deanna feels guilty because she has participated in creating the vaccine, and General Mackenzie never lets her forget that.
Their luck changes when they are contacted by the convicts held in a secret military prison hidden in the arctic desert. The C deviance criminals are willing to negotiate and provide unaffected DNA samples in exchange for supplies and a visit paid by the doctor herself. Suddenly there’s hope, so Deanna embarks on a dangerous journey to a grittier reality than she had expected.
Could a woman alone save the world?

Author LB Clark is pleased to announce the release of Music Speaks, an anthology of short stories featuring authors Christopher T. Grace, Ann Cathey, David Antrobus, Pam Bainbridge-Cowan, Erin McGowan, James Clark, Laurie Sorensen, JD Mader, and LB Clark.
Music is everywhere, seeping into every corner of our lives, and it has a special kind of magic. It can spark a long-buried memory, bring people together, change a mind, or even save a life.
Within the pages of Music Speaks are eleven short stories from nine independent authors. These stories cover a wide range of genres—from romance to dystopia—but they are all unified by a single theme: the power of music.
100% of profits from the sale of this book will go to the MusiCares Foundation—a non-profit organization that helps musicians in times of need.
Music Speaks was published 6/17/2012 by Lone Star BookWorks. It’s available in ebook format through Smashwords, Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble. It will soon be available in print as well.
Author Steven Greenberg has just released his new dystopian suspense novel, Enfold Me. It became available on May 28, 2012 and can be purchased through Amazon.com and may be loaned through the Prime program.
Written by an Israeli, Enfold Me is a dark journey into a chillingly-realistic post-Israel Middle East.
Precipitated by a massive earthquake and an Iranian-led attack, the fall of Israel rips Daniel Blum from his suburban life and scientific career. Alone and scarred, he endures subjugation and terror in Hamas-controlled Northern Liberated Palestine.
Now, Daniel must follow George Farrah, a figure from his past, deep under the Carmel mountain and through Egyptian-controlled, quake-ravaged Tel Aviv. Haunted by tragedy, Daniel strains the bonds of duty and family as he and George uncover a secret that could alter the region’s balance of power.
Dr. Ezra Marcus of the Recanati Institute of Maritime Studies at the University of Haifa says, “The key to this narrative’s success is its verisimilitude: it is too familiar, too realistic and much too uncomfortably believable. The result is engaging and tension-building story that grips you as it disturbs you.”
Everyone had an agenda, and was it only coincidence that they came together in the same village nestled in the ancient Taconic Mountains? Completely involved with their own pursuits, the visitors were unaware of older agendas within the dying town and on the ridges of the brooding mountain with its secrets, dark mysteries, and the seemingly ageless Boudine Sisters.
And if the result could be laced with humor and absurdity, it was always tempered by this truth: sometimes, deep in the heart of the New England mountains, something is going on, both lighter than air and darker than starless night.
Tale of the Taconic Mountains was published in March of this year by eBookit. It is available for purchase on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and eBookit.
