Kindle Paperwhite & author Case Lane [giveaway]

Do you observe the future?

Case Lane is a global writer, traveler, entrepreneur, and observer to the future. Case's overall theme for writing and entrepreneurship is 'prepare for the future.' In her thought-provoking Life Online book series the majority of people are non-technologists who have to learn to live and manage in a technology-controlled world they do not understand. Case envisions a next century world where the essential battle is between the advancement of technology and the instincts of our basic humanity.

Educated in communications, political science, business, law and economics, Case has lived and worked all over the world, and has been a reporter, diplomat, digital media corporate executive and lawyer. You can find all these influences from her knowledge and experience in the books.


The Life Online Book Series is speculative science fiction for thinking people considering the impact of future technologies. Book #4 is next to be released! But in the meantime, start with book #1, The Motion Clue, and work your way through the series.

TO PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE unknown forces created The Network to manage all human activity by linking camera, sensor and satellite surveillance to online personal data. But when an undetectable drone blows up an energy plant, humans face the horror of an unprecedented investigation into the system they thought was the front line in cyber defense. Have we reached the end of our control over machines?

The Motion Clue is a future tech cyber thriller about a clash between a global cyber security team of individual experts and rogue technologists working as colleagues and adversaries in a battle to reverse engineer the most terrifying technological threat the world has ever encountered.

Care to get to go inside the author's mind? Time for an interview with Case Lane.

What inspires you to write?
I have stories in my head, I always have. And my writing is related to my own experiences and interests. What usually happens is I will start thinking of a scenario. For example, right now there is a lot of discussion about self-driving cars. What about airplanes? Could we get to the point where planes operate without pilots? That led to the premise of my next book in the Life Online series about a plane that goes off the grid. Once I have the general idea I can start writing. At that point, the inspiration is in wanting to get the story completed and out for distribution.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Once I have the story decided and I know when I want to release the book, I set a deadline. When I'm actively writing to hit a deadline, I aim for 5,000 words a day. So the length of time depends on the length of the book. The Life Online books average around 115,000 words each, so about 23 days. But that said, I can edit and re-edit forever. If I do not set deadlines I will keep re-editing, not to change the basic story, but certainly to reset dialogue, or change scenes around. I cannot read my own writing without editing. So without deadlines, I would probably still be working on my first book.

What are you working on right now?
Book 4 in the Life Online series is about supersonic airplane travel and the trouble that can happen when the plane goes off 'The Network.' All of the Life Online books are about our next century world where we operate our lives, as you can tell by the title, online. We essentially no longer think as humans because everything is done for us. So within that world, each book picks a different theme and tells the cyber tech thriller version of what could happen if we let this all come to pass.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Keep writing. Be persistent. Keep at it. I know many people want to write a book so I recommend that you start immediately and write a few words every day until it's done. Because of technology and the ability to access a global market of readers, anyone can publish a book and find enthusiastic readers. And there's a great variety of styles and approaches that people can use. What hasn't changed is the readers' interest in good stories. So don't worry about technique or style or market size or any of that - just get the story together and finish the writing you started.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is so brilliant. The narrative has stood the test of time - more than 200 years - and still applies today to circumstances of human behavior and attitudes people have to one another. And of course it can be read over and over and not lose its appeal.

So who wants to win something?! Case Lane and I have partnered up to give away a Kindle Paperwhite (worth $120) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Furthermore, the Life Online series prequel, The Origin Point, can be downloaded free at all the online ebook stores.

$50 Amazon gift card & author Peter Meredith

Fun and scary, you'll be turning the pages about the undead 'til the very end.

Peter Meredith is the multi-genre author of 28 novels including The Undead World, which is a 10-book series. He has also authored The Trilogy of Void, The Hidden Lands Series, The Sacrificial Daughter, A Perfect America, and Sprite.

Having tried his hand in real estate, as an emergency room nurse, and a CEO of a national lighting company, Peter has come to find that his true addiction is in writing books.


Warning! In this first book in the series, called The Apolocalypse, there is violence. There's both zombie on human violence, and human on human violence. There are also sexual situations.

The novel is not about an ex-Navy Seal with a fallout shelter filled with canned goods. Instead, The Apolocalypse is about real people, some of whom stay alive by their wits, strength, or speed. Some are lucky and some are ruthless, making decisions based on the necessity of survival. Quite a few are downright evil.

Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest.

It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are ruthless, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.

So who wants to win something?! Peter Meredith and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card and the conclusion of the AM13 Outbreak series

Need a bit of suspense and terror in your next book? Consider this zombie lover if you haven't discovered her on my blog already.

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


Author Samie Sands has a three-part zombie series called AM13 Outbreak, which you probably know by now if you've seen our previous features.

The third book called Extinct, shown above, kicks zombie butt as good as the first couple books in the series. With so many twists and turns in this concluding book, the zombies will be spinning like tops!

All three books in the zombie book series are available now, and you can get them free on Kindle today!

Writing books about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse is one thing—but Georgie Blake can’t believe it has become her reality…

She never expected her fictional stories of blood, death, and the consumption of human flesh to jump off the page into the real world. She certainly didn’t think she’d survive this long if they had. As a shy novelist, she was sure she’d be one of the first to die.

Safe in the Sanctuary, Georgie holds on to hope for a cure...

But that’s not all she holds on to. The government has promised the people of the Sanctuary that they can return home. The rumours are rife that there is an antidote on the horizon. But even if not, the infected are dying out, throwing the treacherous AM13 virus to the brink of extinction. If the infection dies out, this horrible nightmare Georgie is living in will be a distant memory.

Until everything that’s right goes terribly wrong...

Soon after meeting some new friends in the Sanctuary, Georgie learns she’s going to have to face the monsters outside the walls if she wants to return to her old life. But for a scared, introverted bookworm, it may be too much to consider...

Will Georgina conquer her fears of the dead to return home, or will she be one of the countless others who have gone Extinct?



So who wants to win something?! Like our previous features, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card & children's author Damien Macalino

A superhero with hooves?

If you recognize the name Macalino, it might be because I've previously featured Tonya Macalino - a wife, mother, and author of futuristic thrillers and children's chapter books.

Tonya's son, Damien Macalino, is a professional builder of wacky worlds. As a member of a family of writers, Damien published his first book in third grade, WHAT IF AN ALLIGATOR ATE AN AVALANCHE, an alphabet book for kids with a sense of humor!

Wow. What was I doing in third grade? Certainly not writing any books, and probably sorting my trading cards...

Super Moo is recommended for ages 6-10

Now in fifth grade, Damien steps into even wilder territory with his first children’s graphic novel, SUPER MOO: BOOM, BOOM, SPLAT!

Where can you find him? Damien is often in the jungle of his stacks of books and graphic novels, in the wild woods exploring with his family, or on the open plains of the soccer field with his friends.


Meet Super Moo, the superhero with hooves!
Super Moo is almost bored with his awesomeness. Easily able to defeat bad guys with his Sonic Moo, greeted (mobbed) by adoring fans wherever he goes, Super Moo would really rather be reading his Ion Bear comics than taking combat advice from his sidekick Super Backack.

But when Super Moo's arch-nemesis returns badder than ever, will sheer awesomeness be enough?

Or will Super Moo be the next one to go Boom, Boom, Splat?!

Grab your horn phone and stay tuned!

So who wants to win something? Damien Macalino and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
