Black & White, by Wes Albers

This week we're welcoming Wes Albers' debut novel, Black & White, a police procedural with a gritty, real-life perspective of the work of a street cop in San Diego. Wes Albers writes with more than authority. His many years on the San Diego Police force taught him not only how the system works - and doesn't - but also what the heart and soul of a city's front line defenders really look like. Already receiving rave reviews since the pre-release at the Southern California Writers' Conference last month, this book is one you won't want to miss. Not only because it's a singularly good read, but because if you miss it now, you'll be left well behind.

*Special note: As part of our craze for discounting digital books this month, Black & White is only 99 cents on Kindle and Nook. This will not last!

March Madness

Some of us don't know much of anything about "March Madness" except that it's a really clever way to refer to anything unique happening this month. And we certainly have a lot of unique going on these 31 marvelous days. Most of you are already following Jessica Therrien's whirlwind blog tour and have hopped on Mike Sirota's blog bandwagon. Teresa Burrell has a number of author events throughout the month, and VMK Fewings will be joining Jessica Therrien at Anaheim's WonderCon in just over a week.

But beyond the belongings and the happenings, catching up on reading ZOVA titles has never been more digitally appealing than it is this month. We've got a handful of titles available for only 99 cents, which - let's face it - is about as awesome a deal as you can find. Here's a list of some of the steals:

Jessica Therrien's Oppression introduces Elyse who has lived almost ninety years, aging five times slower than other people. Discovering after all these years that there are many others like her, she enters a world of fascinating abilities, new friends, and terrifying secrets.


The Burning Ground, by Mike Sirota, tells the story of a small gold mining town a century and a half after the slaughter of a Maidu Indian tribe and the brief camp of settlers who mined there.


Michele Scott's novel, Happy Hour, has been enjoying tremendous success since its release. The story of four friends whose lives intersect over happy hour every month is one most women can readily relate to.

The Stone Master's Vampire Series spans several centuries and multiple countries. It's a sweeping saga of passion, betrayal, and immortality.

3. Take the quiz to find out which Greek god you are!

Extra special points if you can identify the burly fellow on the left.
