A catastrophic pandemic ravages the globe, reducing the human population to extinction levels and cleansing the world of mediocrity.

They realize that not dying was the easy part.

Now a year later, they navigate a bleak world… one without technology, without modern medicine, and without law and order. They must unify their diverse strengths not only to rebuild civilization, but to battle those who would forge empires through brutality and oppression.

A Flock of Turtles & Free Kindle Books

You would think if I abused my body enough times that it would get stronger and used to the abuse. No. Just no. I played a little hard last night jumping from a higher distance than I should…repeatedly, and this morning I am paying for it. The exercise in our Parkour class was to try and land softly, but I was having too much fun landing with a thud that sounded like King Kong. It was an awesome noise! Coach said it’s not good for your knees and back and it putting too much strain on them. I thought I would pay for it in the future. The future was sooner than I thought and this morning I can barely walk. Thankfully my seat has wheels and I can get around rather nicely. As long as I can reach the coffee machine all is good. Lesson not learned.

Becalmed: A Carolina Coast Novel (Carolina Coast Stories Book 1)

4.6 Stars (154 Reviews)
Genre: Contemporary Fiction | Women’s Fiction | Religious & Inspirational Fiction | Religion & Spirituality

FREE for a limited time

When a Southern woman with a broken heart finds herself falling for a widower with a broken boat, it’s anything but smooth sailing.

Heart of Excellence finalist — Selah Awards Finalist

With her days chock full – designing jewelry for the shop she co-owns with her best friend, sailing her sharpie, and hanging out with girlfriends – Tadie Longworth barely notices she’s morphing into the town’s maiden aunt. When Will, a widower with a perky daughter named Jilly, limps into town in a sailboat badly in need of engine repairs, Tadie welcomes the chance to help. Her shop becomes Jilly’s haven while Will hunts boat parts, and Tadie even takes the two of them sailing. It’s the kind of thing she lives for, and it’s a welcome distraction from the fact that her ex-boyfriend Alex, aka The Jerk of Jerks, is back in town. With his northern bride. Oh, and he’s hitting on Tadie, too.

Those entanglements are more than enough, thank you very much, so it’s almost a relief when a hurricane blows into town: at least the weather can match Tadie’s mood. When Will and Jilly take shelter in her home, though, Tadie finds herself battling her attraction to Will. Even worse, the feeling is mutual, tempting them all with what-ifs that petrify Will, who has sworn never to fall in love again. Mired in misunderstanding, he takes advantage of the clear skies and hauls Jilly out of there and back to his broken boat so fast, Tadie’s head spins.

With the man she might have loved gone, and the man she wishes gone showing up on her doorstep, Tadie finds herself like a sailboat with no wind; becalmed, she has to fight her way back against the currents to the shores of the life, and the man, she wants.
