Indie Authors For Ben Wolverton! Featured Book Of The Day

For more about what this group is, click here.

For the month of May, you can help a young man recover from a terrible accident, just by buying books.  Ben Wolverton is the son of a sci-fi writer who injured himself back in April, and the writing community is pitching in to help raise funds to support his recovery.

One of those members of the writing community is author Rusty Carl.  Rusty blogs at "The Blutonian Death Egg", where he shares thoughts on illustrating, writing, and, for some reason, fish tacos.  Rusty also writes books, including the phenomenal "A Dead God's Wrath."

**************************************************************

In 1895, deep in the Southeastern U.S., a sleepy little town is home to one of the most violent criminal families in the country. When Thomas O’Brien witnesses the brutal murder of his best friend and the kidnapping of his beloved Mary at the hands of the O’Malley brothers he thinks things can’t possibly get any worse.

But when a mysterious stranger shows up to help, Thomas begins to suspect this man is more than he seems. This stranger pledges to help bring Mary safely back from the O’Malley brothers, no matter the cost. 

Tom’s real nightmare is about to begin.

At just under 10,000 words, A Dead God’s Wrath is a Science Fiction novelette.

***********************************************************

You can buy "A DEAD GOD'S WRATH" on Amazon for as little as $0.99, and all proceeds in May will go to help Ben Wolverton's recovery.

Books by Briane Pagel.  Pagel is the indie author of books like

Eclipse, a harrowing sci-fi story about an astronaut who wanted nothing more than to reach the stars, and did so -- but it took murder to get there.  Or did it?

the After: Saoirse's life didn't begin until she died in a plane crash. But with everything perfect in the After, why is she so unhappy? With the help of a possibly-unfriendly William Howard Taft, Saoirse looks for, in her afterlife, the meaning she never had in her life.

The Scariest Things, You CAN'T Imagine: short horror stories that will leave you lying awake at night wishing you'd stuck with something lighter.  Try "The Grave-Robbers," in which New Sam learns that there have been a lot of prior Sams born to Mom and Dad.  And they're all down in the catacombs...

All these books and more, just $0.99 on your Kindle.

I'll write a post about this too in the next day or so. I'll try to put up another short story as well. Maybe one or two sales that way at least.

You guys are so thoughtful. I bought David Farland's books when they did the book bomb in April. Million Dollar Outlines and the one about Resonance with writing were both wonderful craft books.
