On my Kindle

Here’s what’s on my Kindle as of July 6, 2013.
Most of these titles — the ones that have a link to their Amazon page — I’d like to read and review. I’ve indicated with a “Reviewed” link the books I’ve already reviewed. Most are here on Honest Indie, but a few — the non-novels — are at Amazon. No link means the author has taken the book down. I’ve also indicated books I’ve read, but not reviewed.

As you can see, it’s a very long list, and growing. But getting through it is a labor of love.

  5. Would you be interested in a YA fantasy adventure fiction with slight romance?

    My new novel is called “Dynasty O’Shea” available on https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/251290 and http://www.amazon.com/Dynasty-OShea-Throne-Gammalon-ebook/dp/B009VWXWQ2/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_img_2

    I appreciate what you’re doing for indie writers. I have two new business books published in September 2012. TRANSFORMATION OF A DOUBTING THOMAS just received honorable mention in the New England Book Festival- targets out-of-work people, complacent employees, and business leaders–all have a stake in this recovery. FROM FEAR TO SUCCESS dedicated to practical approach to get over the anxiety of public speaking. http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00A6Z5IUQ

  8. P J Willett says:

    I am amazed at the service you provide. I am very excited at the prospect of you reading my book.

    ‘Will Proles’ Rise’ A YA novel about a victimised member of the underclass who discovers he has the ability to rise up. Will he make the noble decisions that he seemed so capable of making when he was powerless?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Will-Proles-Rise-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B009Y6AVIM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358702742&sr=8-1

    I would love a sincere review.

  9. My first novel, Miriam the Medium (Simon & Schuster, 2004) was nominated for the Harold U. Ribelow Award. My new novel, Kaylee’s Ghost, (CreateSpace, 11/27/2012), is intriguing mix of family drama and contemporary fantasy, A mesmerizing story about life here on Earth and after we’ve passed on, Kaylee’s Ghost is also a domestic drama spanning five generations, a tale about forgiveness, letting go and discovering who we are meant to be, no matter how unusual.
    Like Miriam Kaminsky, I am a phone psychic who lives in Great Neck, N.Y.. Articles have been written about me in such places as Redbook, The Jerusalem Post, the Dutch Magazine, TV GID, and the Long Island section of the New York Times. I’ve chronicled my own psychic experiences in Newsweek (My Turn), and The New York Times (Lives) which can be read on my website at http://rochellejewelshapiro.com
    The “where to buy”:
    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_14?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=kaylee%27s+ghost&sprefix=kaylee%27s+ghost%2Caps%2C741
    A blog review by you would be so appreciated. Publishing with a big house opens doors. Indie writers have to squirm through the mailbox slot. :}
    Thank you for your great contribution. Sincerely, Rochelle Jewel Shapiro

  27. http://www.amazon.com/Could-Heat-Death-Necessary-Life-ebook/dp/B00HI1GX8M

    Hello. My name is Mike. As Kane S. Latranz, I am a free lance writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in Albuquerque. I’ve had a realization for some time now about an aspect of entropy in general and about the theoretical heat death of the universe in particular, a projected future state of complete entropy, that I turned into a short book. If you might be interested in a review copy I could get one to you later this month.

    Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Michael R. Donohoe/Kane S. Latranz. 505-615-9011
    Could a “Heat Death” be Necessary for Life?

    The Musings of a Panentheist
    Authored by Mr. Kane S. Latranz
    Edition: 1

    WE HAVE MET THE “HEAT DEATH” OF THE UNIVERSE IN PROGRESS, AND IT IS… US?

    “Organic cells form, reproduce, and die within complex organisms that are born, reproduce, and die, within species and civilizations that eventually segue into new species and civilizations or simply carry on until they become extinct. All because stars are born, age, die, and are replaced, some former and current stars facilitating habitable planets and life.”

    The quick version is simple and seems irrefutable. “We are star stuff.” Star stuff comes from dead stars. The death of stars contributes to the theoretical heat death of the universe expected to run its course trillions upon trillions of years from now. Wouldn’t it be fair then to say that the existence of Earth, life, and you and I are aspects of the heat death in progress? Yet I have never found this pointed out.

    Although it relates to disorder in certain respects, people often become confused about “entropy,” the second law of thermodynamics, as disorder. So, it is being redefined in many introductory textbooks for physics and chemistry as energy dispersal thanks to retired chemistry professor, Frank L. Lambert. “Energetically, the second law of thermodynamics favors the formation of the majority of all known complex and ordered chemical compounds from the simpler elements. Thus, contrary to popular opinion, the second law does not dictate the decrease of ordered structure in its predictions, it only demands a “spreading out” of energy in all processes.”–Frank L. Lambert, from the website: :2ndlaw.oxy.edu.

    This all comes as a confirmation of something I have wrestled with for some time as a non-scientist, although science does run in my family. Doing a lot of reading that sometimes left me scratching my head in regard to the traditional definition of the second law, (Such as work by Stephen Hawking.), I discerned many processes that would be defined as entropy that also happen to be necessary for evolution and life.

    All of these issues are addressed in the title essay in this short book which was rated 5 stars on Goodreads. There are also several poems pondering aspects of science and/or spirituality, often from a Panentheist perspective, one of which appeared in Philosophy Now Magazine.

    Celebrated physicist and author, Louis Del Monte. “Excellent question. Yes, life is an aspect of the “heat death” in progress.” via Twitter. https://twitter.com/KaneLatranz

    “…Latranz is a burgeoning Albuquerque author with obvious skill at his craft.”~Local i.Q. newspaper.

    Greetings,

    I thank you for your efforts. People willing to read books by independent authors are taking a risk with the most valuable asset, time. I hope you’ll consider spending some of that on my novel.
