Welcome to the first day of our second year of 12 Days of indies! For those who aren’t familiar with how this works, each day we will have a list of indie books priced $2.99 or less with a brief description and a link to buy. We encourage our readers to buy at least 1 book each day and let us know in the comments which book you think we should buy and review for next year.
We have some cool giveaways for those who participate. Even if you don’t participate every day. Even if all you can do is share the post and not buy, that is ok. Be sure to enter the Rafflecopters each day to be entered for a chance to win.
While 12 days of Indies is not an OWS exclusive event, it is an event that OWS feels very passionately about. We appreciate any support you can provide to help share Indie authors with the world.
So, on to the awesome list of offering’s for today!
Up first is an excellent preorder, the exciting sci-fi thriller Tattoos by Stacy Overby. Tattoos releases December 15th, just in time for filling Christmas stalkings.
One hushed cry in the middle of the night, and Eli Thorson’s life unravels. A highly trained Black Ops specialist, he is used to danger, but Eli’s path forces him to confront the illusions he’s been taught his whole life — ones that make him question all the good he thought he was doing.
Unable to work for a command that defiles the oaths he swore, he works to untangle the web of lies and deceit he finds woven throughout his worlds. The tattooed marks of his profession run more than skin deep. As a Specialist it is his duty to protect the people, the laws, and all the United Earth Government stands for, even if it means taking down the entire Black Ops division to do it.
Up next we have the clever contemporary fantasy A Year Since the Rain by Shane Wilson.
Alan —a heart-broken and stubborn computer programmer—took much in his life for granted, including the vast supply of water in his town. But when the rains stop falling and the rivers dry up, he begins to realize how temporary it all can be. His life begins to unravel as, across town, a sinkhole threatens to swallow every bit of the place he has come to call home. Taken on a journey of self-discovery by the magical women in his life, Alan is drawn into an unexpected affair and comes face-to-face with a Mystic who walks through his dreams. For Alan, dreams become a new reality, and reality erodes into something of a dream. As his town transforms into an arid wasteland that crumbles beneath his feet, Alan is compelled by the inevitable to strike out into the unknown or perish.

Up next is the frightful horror short story collection The 13: Tales of Illusory by Stephanie Ayers.
Have you ever noticed how life can shift all of sudden? You’re going along thinking everything is great and then WHAM, you get hit by a bus. Well, maybe not a literal bus, but you get what I mean, right? I’m talking about that moment in time when everything changes and life as you know it comes to a crashing halt.
My name is Abigail Freeman and for me, that moment came on my sixteenth birthday. It wasn’t anything so dramatic as getting hit by a bus. In fact, it was so subtle it didn’t even seem like anything at the time. A cool breeze where there shouldn’t have been one. A stranger in the park. And then everything I thought I knew was turned inside out. What do you do, when you find out you aren’t who you thought you were?
