From Zumaya Otherworlds – The Marvelous Mechanical Man

The Marvelous Mechanical Man
by Rie Sheridan Rose

Josephine Mann is down to her last two dollars when she bumps into Professor Alistair Conn. The professor is in need of a lab assistant, and Jo desperately needs a job. Obviously, it’s the Hand of Fate.

Professor Conn has created a wonder–a 9-foot-tall automaton Jo dubs Phaeton. When an evil villain steals the marvelous mechanical man, Jo and Alistair track him down and get Phaeton back. Unfortunately, it’s a given the evil Blessant won’t give up without a fight, and Jo’s longing for adventure suddenly becomes much too real…and deadly.

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon as well as in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

From Zumaya Boundless – “The 9th Man” by Dorien Grey

The 9th Man
by Dorien Grey

Beware of strangers bearing gifts.

A serial killer is on the loose, apparently targeting gay men at random for death by a most unusual means, and the homophobic police force seems much more interested in meeting its parking ticket quota than in bothering with a bunch of dead faggots. As the body count mounts, it’s up to PI Dick Hardesty to find out not only to find what all the dead men had in common, but who killed them, and why.

Purchase the trade paperback from Amazon as well as in ebook for Kindle and NOOK.

ISBN:    9781612710860
