About the Book

The Karma Code (Daniel Davidsohn)
After a controversial American researcher is murdered in a remote Finnish village, Boston investigator Harry Walker receives a call from Candice--the victim's grieving niece. Determined to uncover her uncle's murderer, Candice finds herself in need of protection from the same forces that led to her uncle's demise.

In a fight for survival through Finland, Scotland, and the United States, Harry and Candice face the greed of investors and rogue agents, who all want to get their hands on what is being called the Karma Code, an experiment potentially capable of accessing a surviving consciousness and predicting a person's fate.

Unless Harry and Candice can find someone to trust amid the treachery around them, they--and the Code--are in danger of disappearing for good.

Bucky is smarter than the average sheep. He is destined to become leader of his flock, which lives peacefully on the idyllic hills of California's Central Coast.

When Bucky learns an awful secret, he attempts to warn the sheep of his flock of the true intentions of the shepherd and the dog who watch over them. But the sheep think and speak in simple sheepisms and are unable to accept or believe what he has to tell them.

One old ram, the black sheep of the flock, believes him. He tells young Bucky of a mythical ram named Zeus and his flock of wild sheep who live in freedom on Liberty Mountain. The two sheep must decide whether to remain with the flock or escape. The decision is made and they set out into the wild in search of Zeus and his wild sheep. A harrowing odyssey ensues.

If you liked ANIMAL FARM, CALL OF THE WILD, or WATERSHIP DOWN, you must read THE SHEEPLE.

About the Book

The Download (R.E.Carr)
Click to Read an Excerpt
It's not every day that your roommate accidentally teleports you across time and space, but Jennifer MacDonald is not having an ordinary day. A chance encounter with a custom-built computer and an ancient pyramid sends Jennifer to a faraway land with six warring civilizations and an ancient prophecy that has a visitor from the stars at its heart. All she has to do is unseal one measly, missing god.

Now the fate of an alien world is in the hands of a gal who's never landed a steady job or boyfriend, but at least she has watched a few years' worth of archeology documentaries. Hopefully that will be enough to get by, since it seems like most of Earth's lost civilizations ended up stranded in this extraterrestrial zoo too. Also, there is the trivial matter of a Mayan assassin sent to kill her...

We are all our own worst enemies, but maybe Jennifer has a chance to break that mold.

Nathan is glad to be moving on with someone new and can hardly believe what is happening now. Wild child and amateur porn star, Bella Broadhurst, loves bullying that "emo whore" Aubrey with the other girls, but mostly she loves partying, hookups, and plain ol' drama when terror arises. And Kendra Coke is just a new teen mother working on a delicate relationship when things start becoming utterly bizarre.

Chilling sleep disturbances and figures hiding in the corners of their rooms are just warnings of what is to come. Be careful what you read, they say. Read carefully...

Indie Author Interview: Anita Dickason


Indie Author Interview with Anita Dickason - Author of the Thriller & Suspense / Paranormal Sentinels of the Night.

Anita Dickason is a retired Dallas Police Officer. During—what she refers to as a phenomenal career—Anita served as a patrol officer, undercover narcotics officer, advanced accident investigator, and SWAT entry/sniper. She has launched another career: Author and Publisher. Anita designs book covers and provides manuscript services to help other authors publish their writings.

Interview with Anita Dickason

Author Anita Dickason
Author Anita Dickason
Alan Kealey (Indie Author News): What is your (writing) background?
Anita Dickason: For most of my career, it has been technical or business: educational courses, presentations, case reports, speeches, and such.

Who are your favorite writers, your favorite books, and who or what are your writing influences?
Mysteries, first and last. Add in the paranormal and I’m hooked. There are so many talented authors it’s difficult to choose one over another, but Heather Graham and Carla Neggers are at the top.

When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer?
In 2013, I conducted a reconstruction of a 1966 automobile accident that killed a key witness to the Kennedy assassination and wrote a book detailing the results of my research--JFK Assassination Eyewitness: Rush to Conspiracy. It was my first published work. I so enjoyed the experience I decided to try my hand at writing fiction and wrote a 500-word short story. I entered it in a contest, and much to my amazement won third place. That bit of encouragement was all it took.

"There are days when all I do is type."

Tell about your writing process. Do you have a writing routine?
There are days when all I do is type. Then I may go days, even weeks before starting again. For me, the rather erratic pace seems to work. It lets my characters and plot steep in my mind.

"The most difficult are multiple POVs"

What do you find easiest about writing? What is the hardest?
