This week's feature has a little something for everyone! Remember, if you download one of the freebies, just send the author a quick tweet to say thank you for the free gift (their Twitter IDs are after their names) or even better, leave them a comment or review after you've finished the book! Reader comments are the golden nectar that feeds a writer's Muse.
Speaking of feeding the Muse, first up we have an imaginative urban fantasy, Tracking Shadows (approx. 73684 words) by Regan Black (@reganblack). This one reads like a suspense/mystery thriller with paranormal elements--a lethal combination if I ever heard one!
Trina Durham has a sterling reputation among assassins, thanks to her unique ability to induce deadly illusions. She left Chicago when Slick Micky killed her best friend, but this job offers an irresistible chance for vengeance.

The third and final entry is another thriller that's based in the all-too-real-world of St. Paul, Minnesota. Deadly Stillwater (approx. 107650 words) by Roger Stelljes (@rogerstelljes)
Mac McRyan, a 4th-generation cop, is faced with a complicated brazen daytime kidnapping, a media storm surrounding the case, and political scrutiny. From the searing streets of St. Paul to the icy shores of Lake Superior to the murky waters of the St. Croix River, "Deadly Stillwater" is a non-stop rush you won't be able to put down until its last thrilling minute.
This book is priced at FREE so no coupon code is required. Warning, it's book 2 of a series, so you'll be addicted after the free read and "have to" visit Roger's web site to find out when the next one's released. Hint: he has a newsletter, sign up for it.
Tomorrow I'll have another SciFi Saturday Snippet to share, as my progress on the SciFi thriller continues ever-so-slowly but steadily. I wish I could just focus on this book and not do anything else. I think I need to find a different job sooner than next winter. If I decide to watch TV, I might also have a bit more done on the Cartooning Dicky artwork, since that's something I can do while I watch TV. For writing, I need to turn off everything (including the internet) and turn on the music ^_^
Shabbat Shalom, everyone!
