From the award winning author of ‘No Hope for Gomez!’ comes a collection
of impossible tales. Permeating the cracks between the past and the present
is the realm of Unspent Time; time that was allotted but never spent. This is
where we find the stories that could have been true. Such as the story of Kiala, whose caretaker disappears one day, leaving her
as the sole Huntress to battle the giant octopi to feed her village. Or the
revealing tale of Goki Feng Ho, the ancient Chinese art of decoding the
meaning of car license plates. And the heartbreaking story of the man
responsible for choosing the colors of the insides of your shoes. And let’s not
forget the story behind Unspent Time itself, the metaphysical ramifications of
which will leave the scientific community feeling mostly indifferent about it
for decades to
come… For the launch of the new novel I decided to discount it to $0.99 for today
(PC and eBook), give away some exclusive content, and raffle off two Kindles.
All entrants will get:
  • An exclusive spin-off novelette (not available for purchase anywhere!)

 Sound bites from Unspent Time: 

“I'm looking into my past lives. I'm convinced some of them still owe me money.”

“I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish 
their sentences.” 

“I didn’t actually want to do it,” Kiala told the boy. “The universe just kind 
of conspired to force me to make a fool of myself. It does that quite a lot, 
actually.”

“Sadly, my socks are like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike.” 

Here's what reviewers had to say:

"A veritable page turner of nonstop laughs!" -- Reader Views
"An unputdownable read. a Coens Brothers' film in book form."   -- BookReview.com 
“Extremely witty and clever writing.”  -- California Chronicle
"A Party for your Brain!" -- Warren Baxter

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
