Pick up a timeless Amika Press read, My Name is Luke, free on Kindle now through Friday. Kirkus Reviews lauds Jim Ruddle’s debut novel:

“In this heartwarming tale about growing up in New England in the mid-19th century, Ruddle includes plenty of interesting information about the sea and the colorful people who work on it…It’s also packed full of historical information, which the author weaves seamlessly into the narrative; at one point, for example, Luke talks about national strife and the just-invented telegraph: ‘You could work that telegraph until the wires started to smoke, and it wouldn’t make folks love each other.’ An educational, engaging story about 19th-century New England that’s particularly suited for readers passionate about sailing.”

Free on Kindle, for Halloween! Monster City: A Hardboiled Horror Mystery

Free on Kindle, today through November 1! Monster City: A Hardboiled Horror Mystery

Kirkus Reviews says:

Cowlin’s debut…stands out as a worthwhile read. The well-built, horror-inspired world of San Monstruo offers just the right balance of humor and creepiness to keep readers on the edges of their seats without being quite terrified. The novel shines the most brightly, however, as the author explores what it means to be a monster. There’s one in everyone. A fun read for PI aficionados and kitschy horror fans alike.
