Definition of "Action and Adventure Genre": You may ask yourself, how does an Action and Adventure ebook differ from a Thriller ebook? Fair question. They may seem similar, but the main aspect of an Action and Adventure ebook is the element of consistent physical danger as a main part of the storyline. So, while our reference to Tom Cruise and, for instance, his Mission Impossible series was slightly tongue-in-cheek, those stories would actually fall into the Action and Adventure genre. Another important aspect of the Action and Adventure genre is that the pace of the novel using action is actually just as important as character building and setting--which makes the genre differ from others in a significant fashion.
Some examples of Action and Adventure bestselling ebooks are James Patterson (most of his Alex Cross novels), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Tom Clancy (most of his Jack Ryan novels), and A.G. Riddle (The Atlantis Gene).

Here are heroes fighting new battles and struggling to conquer the ghosts of the past. Here are quests both small and far reaching; heroism both intimate and vast.

Okay, so you’ve clicked on “Read more” and want to know further details about my novel:
Floating Hair is a gothic horror novel, with a female perspective, set in north-eastern United States.
David, grieving for his lost wife, returns to Malsham: finding new love, and a town filled with romantic, sexual, and criminal lives.
And some bad men. Especially one…
In 1692, Lucy was burned as a witch to conceal his crime: the ravaging fire destroying every aspect of her identity. In the centuries that follow, no-one is held responsible. But now she is given a chance of retribution…
On a cold October night, there is a light in the sky. The population of Malsham watches its blazing progress, before it crashes into the lake. In that moment before impact, some become psychically bound: their lives forever linked.
The explosion resurrects Lucy as a relentless fire vampire. Initially unable to leave the waters, she births small dragons which feed upon those who will not be missed: the homeless, the friendless, the outsiders… She gains sustenance from their endeavours.
Rain deluges the region. Hauling herself from the lake, the rainwater coats her skin: churning from transparent into disparate dark colours. Allowing her to hunt.
Then, when she is strong enough, she summons the fearsome winter and…

Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, investigates a puzzling new murder case that implicates Scotland Yard inspector Robert Treadles in the USA Today bestselling series set in Victorian England.
Inspector Treadles, Charlotte Holmes’s friend and collaborator, has been found locked in a room with two dead men, both of whom worked with his wife at the great manufacturing enterprise she has recently inherited.
Rumors fly. Had Inspector Treadles killed the men because they had opposed his wife’s initiatives at every turn? Had he killed in a fit of jealous rage, because he suspected Mrs. Treadles of harboring deeper feelings for one of the men? To make matters worse, he refuses to speak on his own behalf, despite the overwhelming evidence against him.
Charlotte finds herself in a case strewn with lies and secrets. But which lies are to cover up small sins, and which secrets would flay open a past better left forgotten? Not to mention, how can she concentrate on these murders, when Lord Ingram, her oldest friend and sometime lover, at last dangles before her the one thing she has always wanted?
With its stunning turrets and beautiful rose gardens, I always thought Audley Castle was perfect, set in the idyllic English village of Audley St. Mary. It’s a place I love to call home. But behind the trimmed hedgerows, stately gardens, and birdsong, a killer is waiting…
If you enjoy beautiful English settings, twisty murder mysteries that leave you guessing until the big reveal, and adorable dogs, this series is for you.
Book 1 - Cream Caramel & Murder
After being forced to close my charming café in this quaint little village, I'm thrilled to get a job in the Audley Castle kitchens, making divine treats for visitors and serving the Audley family who live in the castle.
The joy fades when I take my beloved dog for his daily walk, and he leads us to the body of a family friend, Kendal Jakes. Seemingly caught in the act of tampering with evidence by the castle’s security team, I become the number one murder suspect in their investigation. It’ll take more than my skills with a piping bag to solve this crisis.
Book 2 - Chocolate Swirls & Murder
When I get involved in volunteering at the prestigious annual food fair in the castle grounds, I’m shocked to learn about the death of a visiting pie seller. And it was no accident. When the castle’s head of security tells me to keep my nose out as I ask a few questions, I know I should listen, but I can never resist a puzzle.
Rather than focusing on perfecting my entry for the Audley Castle baking contest, I ask how a pie slicer got stuck in a man’s back in a crowded food fair! As I investigate the victim’s life (and death) I learn about his shady business dealings. Could that be the reason he was killed? Or does the presence of an ex-girlfriend have something to do with it?
Book 3 - Vanilla Whip & Murder
When the loveably eccentric Lady Philippa predicts that Blaine Masters, a guest of the Audley family, is about to die, I need to listen. It’s eerie how she seems to see the future.
I'm determined to warn Blaine, but he refuses to take me seriously. In fact, he’s downright rude when I try to help. Then he’s found dead at the bottom of a set of stone steps in only his underwear. It doesn't take me long to learn there were plenty of people who hated Blaine. But who is hiding the truth about how far they’d go to get rid of him?
book 4 - Cherry Cream & Murder
A pinch of murder in paradise, a dash of ruined reputations, and a splash of rivalry. English country living has never been deadlier. I’m in a bind, when I’m given the crucial task of preventing a death by Lady Philippa Audley. The problem is, I have no idea who's about to die or how they'll meet a sticky end!
When the killer strikes during a friendly longbow shooting competition, everyone is stunned. Was this an accident, or did someone target the victim? As I hunt for the truth, I discover work rivals, a neglected girlfriend, and intense jealousy.
If you love amateur female detectives and English eccentricities, then don't miss your chance to binge-read the first four books in the Holly Holmes cozy culinary mystery collection. To be enjoyed with a slice of cake while nestled in a comfy chair!

The ultimate voyage of discovery ends with the truth about yourself.
Michael Anderson never thought he would set foot on an Earthlike world. Born on the farthest edge of the solar system, he only ever studied planets from afar. But when his scientist parents open a wormhole and discover signs of intelligent life on the other side, Michael is the only planetologist young enough to voyage to the alien star.
He is not alone. Terra, his mission partner, is no more of an adult than he is. Soon after their arrival, she begins keeping secrets from him. But she doesn't realize that her darkest secret is one that he already knows.
Twenty light-years away from humanity, what they discover on the alien world forces them to question their deepest beliefs about the universe—and about what it means to be human.
The ultimate truth requires you to sacrifice your innocence.
Sixteen years ago, Estee's parents abandoned their scientific mission to the planet Icaria and made the new world their home. They thought it would be decades before anyone else came to this rugged, edenic paradise. They were wrong.
Young, fearless, and free, the only other people Estee has ever known are her own immediate family. So when a military expedition arrives from Earth, she is innocently drawn to all the interesting new people, their large, noisy vehicles, and their strange weapons.
But her parents have a secret. There is a dark side to Estee's homeworld, whose distant past is linked to Earth's terrifying future. Now Estee is the guardian of those secrets, and she must do all in her power to keep them from falling into the wrong hands.
As the marines begin to hunt her, Estee makes an unlikely friend in a young lieutenant. Together, they must unlock the secrets of Icaria's past to break the cycle of violence and restore their shattered worlds.
THE STARS OF REDEMPTION
The ultimate redemption can only be gained after you confront the past.
When the scientists at Heinlein Station punched a wormhole through the stars, they created a temporal paradox with dire ramifications for the future of humanity. Now, Estee and Khalil are trapped in the product of that paradox: an ancient, alien ghost ship that has wandered the stars for millions of years, biding its time for the final day of reckoning.
Her family broken and her homeworld shattered, Estee struggles to care for her younger sisters as they search for a way back home. But Khalil carries wounds of his own. He blames himself for the loss of his platoon, and wants nothing so much as to end the pain—even if it means becoming a martyr.
Only Estee and Khalil can stop the ghost ship from unleashing its devastation. Temporal paradoxes are never quite so simple, but fortunately, there is always a path to redemption.
Ancient doors not only reveal strange new worlds, but also awaken primeval evil.
Emmeline Augury jumps into the portal narrowly escaping from the clutches of the Imperial Command and the Orias. But the portal opens into the 21st Century. Gripped by fear that she could change the timeline, she frantically locates the second piece only to discover it has been taken by one of the most powerful men in New York. Running out of options, she forges a plan which, if successful, will protect the timeline. But if she fails, all hell will break loose.
In the 24th century, Titan's and Prometheus’s jump has thrown them in the path of an inferno, to a system governed by a strange and powerful Sphere. Narrowly escaping that fate, Commander Anastasia Waters figures out that the Sphere might be at the heart of the mystery of the phantom asteroids. It holds many secrets including the jump point closest to Earth. But it is home to primeval evil and boarding the Sphere might cost her more than she bargained for.
While the crews of Titan and Prometheus try to find a jump point closer to home, Emmeline secures the artifact. But catastrophe strikes when the Orias queen unleashes her wrath, shaking Emmeline to her core and burning everything in its wake.
Trying to reach for the impossible, are like Icarus. They might fly, but their wings might just melt.
Seth thought he had his life all planned out. After retiring from the Marines, he sought a career in the private sector. Moving up the corporate ladder proved harder than he thought, and when he suddenly loses his job, he wonders if he might be wasting his life.
Until a car accident changes it forever. Finding himself marooned on an alien prison planet, he must team up with a rebel in order to survive. But the environment isn’t the only hazard to overcome with bloodthirsty genetic anomalies and dangerous inmates on the prowl. It seems the only way to survive is to escape the planet, if he can find the necessary allies and equipment to achieve the impossible.
For no one’s escaped Lakon Prison before. But then, they never tried to cage a Marine.

In her short story collection, Even Greater Mistakes, Charlie Jane Anders upends genre cliches and revitalizes classic tropes with heartfelt and pants-wettingly funny social commentary.
The woman who can see all possible futures is dating the man who can see the one and only foreordained future.
A wildly popular slapstick filmmaker is drawn, against his better judgment, into working with a fascist militia, against a background of social collapse.
Two friends must embark on an Epic Quest To Capture The Weapon That Threatens The Galaxy, or else they’ll never achieve their dream of opening a restaurant.
The stories in this collection, by their very outrageousness, achieve a heightened realism unlike any other. Anders once again proves she is one of the strongest voices in modern science fiction, the writer called by Andrew Sean Greer, “this generation’s Le Guin.”
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

He is forbidden from following the Lightweaver Path.
The "touched" still serve the brightlands, working the mines to extract sunstone; to deliver it to the Lightweavers, the saviors, preservers, and rulers of Ashathar.

He's the only chance the Ming clan has to ascend in prominence amongst the brightborn, to remain among the Lightweavers for the next generation.

“Cory Doctorow straps on his miner’s helmet and takes you deep into the caverns and underground rivers of pop culture, here filtered through SF-colored glasses. Enjoy.”—Neil Gaiman
New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow has been hailed as one of the freshest voices in science fiction, and this collection of intriguing novellas is yet another reason why.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live through a bioweapon attack or to have every aspect of your life governed by invisible ants? In Cory Doctorow’s collection of novellas, he wields his formidable experience in technology and computing to give us mind-bending sci-fi tales that explore the possibilities of information technology—and its various uses—run amok.
“Anda’s Game” is a spin on the bizarre new phenomenon of “cyber sweatshops,” in which people are paid very low wages to play online games all day in order to generate in-game wealth, which can be converted into actual money. Another tale tells of the heroic exploits of “sysadmins”—systems administrators—as they defend the cyberworld, and hence the world at large, from worms and bioweapons. And yes, there’s a story about zombies, too.
“He sparkles! He fizzes! He does backflips and breaks the furniture! Science fiction needs Cory Doctorow.” —Bruce Sterling, award-winning author of Schismatrix Plus and The Difference Engine
