His Death was only the Beginning… Shepherd Autrey is a Quaker, a physician, and a man deeply disturbed by the madness around him as the War Between the States bears down on his America in 1863. Dared by a friend to take an active role, Shep volunteers to provide humanitarian aid to the victims of Sherman’s scorched earth campaign in the Shenandoah Valley. There he runs foul of a Confederate recruiting drive and finds himself hanged by the neck from a tree. Awakening in a strange land which can’t possibly be earth, Shep is plunged into battle and saves the life of an alien warrior prince. Hailed by bloodthirsty killers as the bravest man alive, Shep combats his conscience, his flagging faith, and an ever-growing number of people who want him dead.

The paperback and Kindle versions of Steven H. Wilson‘s SF/Fantasy novel Peace Lord of the Red Planet are now on sale for $3.18 on Amazon!


By Your SideWhile haunted by visions of her brother’s suicide, psychic-medium Miranda Lorensen is called to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to investigate a series of bizarre deaths–some of which are also suicides. Miranda and her team of paranormal investigators quickly find themselves confronted by a vengeful spirit awakened thirty-three years after a bloody family tragedy. Miranda realizes that only she can stop the entity before it claims its final victims, but will her obsession for saving lives redeem her for the brother she failed?

The paperback version of Phil Giunta’s paranormal mystery novel, By Your Side, is now under $8! We honestly have no idea how long these sales will last as prices are adjusted by Amazon’s capricious algorithms without notice.

Firebringer Take Two on Sale at Amazon!

Ghosts, Vampires, and American History…

We have no idea how long this sale will last, but the paperback version of our paranormal double novel—FREEDOM’S BLOOD by Steven H. Wilson and LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS by Phil Giunta—is on sale at Amazon for $5.93 (normally priced at $10.99)! We happened to notice that Amazon adjusted the price, as they are wont to do from time to time.

The paperback is formatted like the classic ACE double novels of the 1950s-1970s where you read one story then flip the book over to read the other.

Looking For a Few Honest Reviews, or A Lot of Them

We’re always grateful for the support of our readers and are thrilled when you come back time and again to buy our latest releases whether online or at conventions and library events.
 
We would like to ask a favor. We’re looking for more reviews for our books, especially on Amazon. Whether good, bad, or “just okay” as long as they’re honest, it would be an immense help to us. You see, once a book reaches 50 reviews, Amazon helps to promote the book by giving it more exposure on their site. Thus, reviews are critical to an author’s career.
 
We deeply appreciate the reviews we’ve received so far. The overwhelming majority of them have been effusive. We also know you’re busy, so even just a one-line or two-line comment would be wonderful. If you want to go into detail about why you liked the book, even better!
 
So whether it was Steve Wilson’s Arbiter Chronicles or Peace Lords of the Red Planet, Phil Giunta’s Testing the Prisoner or By Your Side, Heroic Park by Lance Woods, Diane Baron’s Gal Wonder or The Fandom Fifty, Firebringer Take Two by Phil and Steve, or our Middle of Eternity anthologies, we would love to hear from you on Amazon.
