Enter for a chance to win the newest ebook by Stacey Roberts. It's about politics, but it is not boring, I swear. (There is no swearing in this book).
I can't watch the news anymore. I have grown weary of watching our politicians act like spoiled children. I am a huge fan of American historical non-fiction, and the more of that I read, the more I think that the country has strayed pretty far from it's founding principles. So I wrote a book about it.
Surreal, way-beyond-prime-time satire. Iconoclastic, politically incorrect, non-linear, over-the-top and jam-packed with losers. Experimental scenarios blend humor and horror. Emotionally disconnected characters shuttle between their waking and dreaming lives. Superficial silliness juxtaposed with deeper, darker sociological and philosophical commentary. Profane, funny fiction for adults with open minds.

ENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A COPY OF GONE AT MIDNIGHT BY JAKE ANDERSON!
A Los Angeles hotel with a haunting history. A missing young woman. A disturbing video followed by a shocking discovery. A cold-case mystery that has become an internet phenomenon—and for one determined journalist, a life-changing quest toward uncomfortable truths.
Twenty-one-year-old Vancouver student Elisa Lam was last heard from on January 31, 2013, after she checked into downtown L.A.’s Cecil Hotel—a 600-room building with a nine-decade history of scandal and tragedy. The next day, Elisa vanished. A search of the hotel yielded nothing. More than a week later, complaints by guests of foul-smelling tap water led to a grim discovery: Elisa’s nude body floating in a rooftop water tank, in an area extremely difficult to access without setting off alarms. The only apparent clue was a disturbing surveillance video of Elisa, uploaded to YouTube in hopes of public assistance.
As the eerie elevator video went viral, so did the questions of its tens of millions of viewers. Was Elisa’s death caused by murder, suicide, or paranormal activity? Was it connected to the Cecil’s sinister reputation? And in that video, what accounted for Elisa’s strange behavior? With the help of web sleuths and investigators from around the world, journalist Jake Anderson set out to uncover the facts behind a death that had become a macabre internet meme, as well as a magnet for conspiracy theorists.

*EARLY COPY GIVEAWAY*
The riveting story of a trading prodigy who amassed $70 million from his childhood bedroom--until the US government accused him of helping trigger an unprecedented market collapse
On May 6, 2010, financial markets around the world tumbled simultaneously and without warning. In the span of five minutes, a trillion dollars of valuation was lost. The Flash Crash, as it became known, represented the fastest drop in market history. When share values rebounded less than half an hour later, experts around the globe were left perplexed.
Raised in a working-class neighborhood in West London, Navinder Singh Sarao was a preternaturally gifted trader who played the markets like a computer game. By the age of thirty, he had left behind London's "trading arcades," working instead out of his childhood home. For years the money poured in. But when lightning-fast electronic traders infiltrated markets and started eating into his profits, Nav built a system of his own to fight back. It worked--until 2015, when the FBI arrived at his door. Depending on whom you ask, Sarao was a scourge, a symbol of a financial system run horribly amok, or a folk hero who took on the tyranny of Wall Street and the high-frequency traders.
A real-life financial thriller, Flash Crash uncovers the remarkable, behind-the-scenes narrative of a mystifying market crash, a globe-spanning investigation into international fraud, and the man at the center of them both.
