If you haven’t checked it out already, this could be your last chance to find out why the citizens of Kindle Nation have made Tonya Plank’s debut novel Swallow one of the top 100 paid bestsellers in the Kindle Store!
(Editor’s Note: Ordinarily I don’t say much to embellish the material provided by authors and publishers for our sponsorship titles, but it’s not often that — for a mere 99 cents — we get to play a part in discovering a new novelist who is destined for very big things, as you can see from the 5-star reviews from some of the top Amazon reviewers to the great blurbs and book description below. As one of Tonya Plank’s first readers among the citizens of Kindle Nation, I promise that you are in a for a real treat. -S.W.)
With a cast of characters that includes a pornographer father, a sister with a knack for getting knocked up by denizens of the town pen, a tough-talking fashion maven, a painter of male nudes, an eccentric Sing Sing-residing client and a bevy of privileged Manhattan attorneys and judges, Swallow
is a dark comedy about the distance that can separate fathers and daughters, and about a young woman’s struggle to survive in a world of pedigreed professionals for which she has no preparation.

“Swallow, which I’ve just started reading, hooks you from the opening pages with its breathless urgency and captures what it’s like to live in NY now, with money worries and ambition and myriad obligations breathing down your neck, and none of it written in cutesy chick-lit’ry. So give it a try.” –Vanity Fair Online, James Wolcott, January 15, 2010
A shy, young Manhattan attorney from a small-town, working-class background struggles with psychosomatic disorder Globus Hystericus, which causes her difficulty eating, speaking, and even breathing. This multi-award-winning, well-reviewed often comical novel centers on class privilege, gender equity, and the distance that can separate fathers and daughters.

Young, headstrong widow Anjali Kapadia runs her parent’s chic boutique in New Jersey’s Little India, but she’s the last to find out that their store is financially insolvent. When her parents bring in her wealthy, controlling Uncle Jeevan to rescue the business, Anjali is initially resistant to his changes, but soon has to admit that they’re working—and that she’s falling for her uncle’s mysterious business partner, Rishi Shah. Focusing on the immigrant experience, culture clash (and resolution) and family ties, Bantwal has a forgettable story, and her Little India doesn’t do much to distinguish itself—interesting for those unfamiliar with Indian culture but with little else to offer. Readers will wish Bantwal had done more with her appealing characters and New Jersey setting. – Publishers Weekly

Erotica by Adair, Dominique
Not only is James Patterson the bestselling ebook author of all time with over 1.1 million copies sold, but he and his marketing team get it. Instead of whetting readers’ appetites with just a chapter or two, Patterson has been making a regular practice of providing real, meaty previews like this one — at 768 locations it’s longer than Stephen King’s expensive novella Billy Blockade. The full novel comes out July 26 and you can pre-order the full novel here, but you don’t have to wait until then to start reading the first few chapters by clicking here.
by Kay Kenyon – 4.3 out of 5 stars (27 customer reviews)
Starred Review. At the start of this riveting launch of a new far-future SF series from Kenyon (Tropic of Creation), a disastrous mishap during interstellar space travel catapults pilot Titus Quinn with his wife, Johanna Arlis, and nine-year-old daughter, Sydney, into a parallel universe called the Entire. Titus makes it back to this dimension, his hair turned white, his memory gone, his family presumed dead and his reputation ruined with the corporation that employed him. The corporation (in search of radical space travel methods) sends Titus (in search of Johanna and Sydney) back through the space-time warp. There, he gradually, painfully regains knowledge of its rulers, the cruel, alien Tarig; its subordinate, Chinese-inspired humanoid population, the Chalin; and his daughter’s enslavement. Titus’s transformative odyssey to reclaim Sydney reveals a Tarig plan whose ramifications will be felt far beyond his immediate family. Kenyon’s deft prose, high-stakes suspense and skilled, thorough world building will have readers anxious for the next installment. (Apr.)
