Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Last Election

We're well into the 2012 election season, so here's this week's pick.

2012 A.D.

Washington, D.C.:
During the run-up to the presidential election, incumbent President Emmanuel Bonsam slowly spirals into insanity and contrives a murderous plot to hold on to power. Aided by his lead “shadow agent” Jorge Delgado, Bonsam sets out to exterminate anyone who threatens his reelection.

Lansing, Michigan:
Governor Samuel Clark chooses U.S. Speaker of the House Kenna Martineau as his vice-presidential running mate. They soon discover that running against Bonsam is a dangerous game.

La Costa Maya, Mexico:
A team of archaeologists exploring the Maya ruins of Chacchoben uncover an ancient artifact marked with strange symbols never before seen. UVA student archaeologist Ixchel Cobán is haunted by horrific visions of President Bonsam as she unravels the artifact's mysterious message.

The Last Election is packed with riveting action and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the captivating start to the dramatic climax!

Right now, this is free in the Kindle Store.


Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Missing Link

It may not be the best book you ever read, but it will sure keep you entertained.

While civilization is steadily destroying itself, IT cubicle-jockey and cyberspace junkie Brent Porter enlists the help of his grumpy office building security guard, Mickey, to find his missing computer gamer girlfriend, Molly. The trouble is, Molly’s fallen down her laundry basket and into a lewd and confusing world of nonsense, in a retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with a twist: the heroine is dumped into the deepest, darkest bowels of the Internet.

So while Brent and Mickey are searching for Molly in a city that’s gone to complete chaos, and Molly’s fighting off porn freaks, viruses, and scammers, who’s going to save humanity from the Internet (and itself)? Well, that would be the Downriver Boys, a group of homeless people who’ve never had to rely on technology to survive. These vigilant vagabonds, led by a war veteran and a half-brilliant, half-insane madwoman, will have to rely on everything they know about survival so that Brent, Mickey, and Molly will even have something to come back to.


Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Breaking News

Despite ABS News producer Bill Ramey’s distaste for seamy news stories, he pursues evidence that links Senator Gerald Smith to the disappearance of a beautiful blond coed. Nothing is as it appears and soon Bill uncovers dark secrets that someone would kill to protect. As the news story unfolds Bill Ramey and Senator Smith are swept into the funnel of a media tornado that neither of them can control. Though Bill tries to hang on to his integrity, he becomes one of the players in a dangerous game of media manipulation.

Give this a chance, it's free.


Australian Open Day 8: Match of the Day

Ana Ivanovic vs. Petra Kvitova

On paper it looks like it could be a good matchup.

Petra Kvitova comes into the match looking for her first career win over Ivanovic.  Ivanovic has a 3-0 career edge, but they haven't played since 2009.

Kvitova had a scare in her last round and Ivanovic looks in good form.

Kvitova has been my pick to win the tournament and if she is going to, I expect her to turn in on in this match.

Look for three sets, but Kvitova pulling away at the end.


Australian Open Day 5: Match of the Day

Alexandr Dolgopolov vs. Bernard Tomic

A night session match on Rod Laver Court that should attract a lot of attention. 

Both are playing some of their best tennis and both are looking to make a long run in the event.

Dolgopolov is 3-0 against Tomic, including two wins in 2011.

Most observers think Dolgopolov's game frustrates the big Aussie and I agree.  Dologopolov neutralizes Tomic's strengths and with the courts playing a little slower, the Aussie will have his hands full.

I like Dologopolv in 5 sets.
