Halloween Hangover

kindlecountdown-sg

There’s candy left in the bowl to give away,
but no one knocking, begging, or dressed up anymore…
so I’ll give the goodies to all of you!

For a limited time (72 hours), Survivor’s Guilt will be on Kindle Countdown!

Regularly priced at $2.99… this special will offer the novella for 99¢ – $1.99, depending on how quickly you react!

Sale starts 11/13/14 and ends at midnight 11/15/14

SURVIVOR’S GUILT

Presumed dead in the tragedy of 9-11, Ryan Kolstad saw his missed job interview that morning as something other than a failure—he saw opportunity. Believing his family would be better off, he walked away.

Under the guise of a new identity, he’s spent a decade punishing those he deems unworthy of the loving families they take for granted. But Ryan suddenly finds himself questioning the lies and rules he’s come to live by… when he finds himself on the other side of judgement.


This novella was originally published as part of the Waking The Dead exclusive, limited edition collection of four novellas (from Thunderstorm — also included were Buried Memories, Crossroads and Grave Wax). This is not my normal subtle thriller style, nor is it in your face horror, this is brutal reality and often consider “crime thriller”.

If you didn’t grab Waking the Dead, are a collector of all editions, or simply don’t have this one, now’s your chance to grab it. Go ahead, treat yourself to one last sweet before you make that dentist appointment to undo the damage of October.

Available at Amazon

(apologies to those in other countries — kindle countdown is only for US stores, please go there to grab part of this deal!)

Share Me for Halloween

skullbook2Have you purchased one of my ebooks? If so, first and foremost, thank you. I appreciate your support and hope you enjoyed it. That said… you should share it!

When you have a physical book you enjoy, what do you do? You pass it around. Before ebooks, we did it all the time. You handed off what you enjoyed and told friends/family they should read it. Or you were the one borrowing from others. It was a beautiful tradition—even with the occasional rules about bending bindings and dog-earring pages. So why not do that with your ebooks? Why should this tradition be gone just because the book isn’t physical?

In the spirit of the season, why not give a friend a good scare? Go ahead… spread the love. Consider it Trick or Cyber-Treat to someone who may not have read my work before. I mean, after all, Amazon offers it and I agreed to it, so what the hell, let’s abuse it!!

At the top of the Amazon page for the book you’ve already purchased, above the title, you’ll see this:

And clicking it gets you this lovely window:

 

loan2Fill it out, hit the button, and spread the love. Two things to remember: a. you can only do this once per book, unfortunately. b. they do not need a kindle to read it. For more details on the how’s or why’s, click here.

Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

 

ps: I will not receive payment or notification if you share, so please let me know if you do!!

…on the Seventh Day there was an eBook!

Six Days…

Originally published in a limited edition as part of Thunderstorm Books maiden voyage of the Maelstrom series, alongside Brian Keene’s “A Gathering of Crows” and “The Rising: Deliverance.”

Same novel, including the intro from James Moore, but of course, I can’t re-release it without adding “something” for giggles, right? Sneak peeks at other works, story notes and more are all tucked inside… like the good old days, when books were only on paper!

“Kelli Owen has pulled off a kind of dark magic with this book and done so with an assurance rarely seen in a first novel.  She’s made us care deeply about a flawed character completely alone in the dark, a scary one-character play peopled with everyone she’s close to…which is no mean feat for any magician.  And the ending packs a hell of a wallop.”
~Jack Ketchum, author

“This is one HELL of macabre, psychological mystery. Owen has a terrifying talent for pushing the reader’s buttons, one right after another, until you’re trapped in the same lightless, inescapable cloak of HORROR as the main character. One of the most suspenseful books I’ve read in long time, and a stellar debut.”
~ Edward Lee, author

“I’ve heard multiple people (some of whom should have known better) who genuinely believe that women can’t write horror or suspense or anything stronger than a romance or a good cook-book. I’ve never believed that. There’s far too much evidence to the contrary, but even if there weren’t evidence to disprove that asinine theory, the volume you hold right now would make a joke of the very notion.”
~ James Moore, author

“This is the best debut novel that I have read in years.  It truly is a brilliant work and I am proud that Thunderstorm gets to be a part of it.”
~ Paul Goblirsch, Thunderstorm Books (Original publisher)

“…serves to create a claustrophobic cocktail of unease and uncertainty.  In today’s world of omnipotent narrators and worn out horror clichés, it’s refreshing in a very Chianti and fava beans sort of way. Owen has set the bar very high with her debut novel, a bar I have no doubt she will be able to surpass.  Her blend of human observations, horror sensibilities, and gifted prose portend great things for her in the future.”
~The Word Zombie, Reviewer

Take advantage of the limited-time introductory price of $2.99, and see what the heck all these crazy people were talking about!

FREE ebook

Gypsy girl say what?!

That’s right… FREE. For a limited time (ohhh how about through Friday the 23rd) only, you can download the kindle version of Waiting Out Winter for FREE.

Find out what the hubbub is all about. Beware the flies that are coming out of hibernation now that the weather is warm. And learn for yourself why the world doesn’t end with a boom, but rather, with a buzz…

It’s Spring today, and we should celebrate. Let’s call it my birthday present to all of you.

All I ask, leave a comment and rating after you’ve finished it. On the amazon page or on my message board. Let me know what you thought…

Nick and the boys return from the summer’s last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut. The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast—very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.

The 6th installment of the Elemental Series from Thunderstorm Books… Cover art by Nick Tripiciano… FREE for a limited time.

Happy Spring!

More Buzz…

ibooksJust a quick addendum to the buzz swarming around Waiting Out Winter…

iBooks has finally caught up. Waiting Out Winter is now available as an epub through the iBooks Store. If you have an ipod/iphone, you can use this link directly from your device to load the page and grab the novella.

Of course, for the Kindle users out there, we still have amazon.

And for anyone that reads digitally but doesn’t use either of those readers, you can convert them to whatever format you need using Calibre.

Happy Thursday!
