Thanks, Irish M. A few to start the day from my wish list:

The Recruit: A Jack Noble Short Story - 27 pages - Publication Date: September 13, 2012
In late summer of 1994, Jack Noble, a former All-American quarterback, is in the middle of the toughest event he's ever taken part in. Marine Corps Recruit Training.
After eight weeks he's managed to make enemies of every drill instructor and every recruit in his platoon.
Then on one particularly humid South Carolina day, an odd sequence of events changes everything.
Contains an excerpt of Noble Intentions: Episode 1.
Length: 5000 words

Case Theory (David Brunelle Legal Thriller #2) - 27 pages - Publication Date: April 24, 2012
SHORT STORY. Assistant D.A. David Brunelle has a problem: a woman and her child have been murdered, a killer is in custody, but something doesn't add up. Namely, the bullets. Either the cops botched the crime scene, or there's more going on than Brunelle knows. He'll need to figure it out quick, before the defense attorney walks a murderer out the door.

The Great Bedroom War (Book Two of The Return to Redemption series) - 234 pages - Publication Date: July 11, 2012
Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® Finalist
She's trying to forget the pleasure in her ex's arms
He's doing his damnedest to remind her
Fledgling entrepreneur Samantha Riverà is in charge of her own life for the first time and determined to keep it that way. She's attempting to banish her call-all-the-shots ex-husband from her dreams, but it's kind of tough forgetting the Zorro look-alike who's willing to do anything for her, except give her the only two things she wants--another baby and his love. When their 14-year-old daughter Dani--who's maintaining a shaky remission from leukemia--rebels, Sam foolishly seeks advice from her Don Juan ex, who, incidentally, could charm the knickers off a nun.
When Nicolàs Riverà returns to Redemption, PA, to help control his defiant daughter, he discovers he not only has serious competition for Sam's affection, but Dani has a crush on a boy who is the last kid Nick wants her interested in. The boy is a horn-dog rebel who reminds Nick way to much of his teen-aged self.
Sam never understood that, to a second-generation Latino man, familial responsibility is número uno. She also has no concept of how terrified this reformed bad-boy and businessman is of losing her to another high-risk pregnancy. The death of their premature son devastated Nick, and his refusal to sire another child incited The Great Bedroom War that ultimately destroyed his marriage. Now, he'll stop at nothing to get his family back--even if it means blackmailing his way back into his ex-wife's home to become a greater presence in his sick child's life--and, with any luck, Samantha's bed and heart.
Approximately 83,000 words

Fire Heart (The Titans: Book One) - 543 pages - Publication Date: September 7, 2012
When mercenary Will Blackmane discovers that he is the living embodiment of a Titan - a god from an age all but forgotten - his world comes crashing down around him. Hounded relentlessly by the beings who drove his kind into exile, he must become the leader the world needs and unite the warring nations of Pallamar under one banner if he and his allies are to survive. His only chance of success rests with the other Titans, finally returned after five hundred years of hiding - and with Clare, an extraordinary soldier from an annihilated city far to the west. The growing bond between them is a strange and unexpected one, but it may be all that stands between them and the encroaching darkness.

Off to an early morning meeting. Will try to stop in later. Hope everyone has a healthy, pain-free, and happy day!

Judy

I wondered if the deals were Kindle related since there are no details.

For those looking for Dr. Pepper with real sugar, have you checked around Passover? We always see the big sodas with real sugar at that time of year.

Irish M, thank you for the start this morning. Late or early, frills or no frills, it all counts once it's there. Hope you have a good day.

@Nospin - I am happy to come here and see you again! I have missed you, but that is my fault, not yours!

First, I would like to thank the following, because without their posts I wouldn't have gotten the books THEY found and I didn't! That's why I don't just go with the eReaderIQ email, but check here as well because others find things I don't.
@Robb - thanks for Silver Hollow
@DonnaBeeGood - thanks for Mandarin Yellow (Socrates Cheng mysteries)

Otherwise, not too much out there today. I picked up:
Free Gift With Purchase (I got this because I have decided that being single in my late 40's is now inevitable and the thought of the dating scene just depresses me more than I can say. . .maybe this book will make me laugh because my current situation certainly doesn't)
My Forever Girl -- The Curse of Fin Milton Novella (In The Shadow of Etherea) (not sure what this is except a novella with some tie-in to a previously offered free book)
Music Speaks

That's it for today, unless you guys come up with something more exciting!

Continuing on my fairy tale kick:
Snow White Blood Red ( A Grimm Diaries Prequel #1 ) This Grimm Diaries Prequels are a number of short books in the form of epistolary diary entries. The diaries are more of teasers for the upcoming series:
The Grimm Diaries, allowing you to get a glimpse of what to expect of the series.

The first book in the Series will be out in January 2013, called SNOW WHITE SORROW.

Series Description:

The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse was broken and they allowed to wake up every one hundred years.

We had a previous one of these recently.
Lie Down in Green Pastures (The Psalm 23 Mysteries #3) Even though they work right next door to each other, Cindy and Jeremiah come from two different worlds. Cindy is a church secretary; Jeremiah is a Reformed rabbi with a mysterious past full of danger and excitement. Together they have faced down a serial killer at Easter and a murderer of homeless people.The two unlikely companions continue to forge a strong friendship as they explore personal history and faith with each passing adventure.This third volume in the Psalm 23 Mysteries series finds Jeremiah and Cindy matching wits with an unscrupulous land developer. In a fast-paced story set around St. Patrick's Day, murder invades an idyllic landscape, challenging them to save hundreds of teens even as they try to discover the source of their unexpected danger.

I also found the latest prequel released on Nov. 6

Blood Apples ( A Grimm Diaries Prequel #6 )

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?.
In this short diary, Prince Charming tells how Snow White was really killed, and how he came to meet Rapunzel and Jack the Beanstalk. Is it true that he really knows who wrote the original fairy tales and handed them over to the Brothers Grimm? And more importantly, Prince Charming explains why apples are red.

Hi there and thanks to Irish M for starting us today.

Just two from my TBR list

The Secret of Lies by Barbara Forte Abate
Named a Finalist in the Indie Excellence Book Awards, 2nd place for Newbie Fiction-Royal Dragonfly Book Awards, Honorable Mention Eric Hoffer Book Awards, Finalist Global eBook Awards

Propelled by an insurmountable sense of desperation, Stevie Burke is recklessly abandoning home, husband, and outwardly contented life under cover of night; at last resigned to defeat in her long battle against the tortured memories of the past.

Days later, lost and floundering in a dreary motel room without plan or destination, it is a long ago song playing on the radio that gently tugs Stevie back through the dust of remembrance. 1957 - The last summer spent at the ancient house overlooking the North Atlantic. A season which had unfolded with abundant promise, but then spiraled horribly out of control - torn apart by a shattering tragedy that leaves a family impossibly broken ...

Elephant Girl: A Human Story by Jane Devin
Written in three distinct voices -- child, teen and adult -- Jane Devin takes readers on an intimate, imaginative and often harrowing life journey. Born unwanted and raised without love, the child-author invents a rich inner life to see her through years of trauma. Leaving home at 16, the teen-author struggles to find happiness and a sense of place in a world that feels confusing and unfamiliar. Then, years after stumbling into an adulthood mired in tragedy and broken dreams, the woman-author finds herself at a crossroads. The choice she ultimately makes is as stunning as it is brave.Told in unflinching and often lyrical prose, Elephant Girl goes beyond a singular life story to speak of powerful, universal truths and the ability of the human spirit to redeem itself.

In a culture of bootstraps and bromides, it has become unfashionable to talk about the long-term effects of child abuse and being raised without love or nurture. Unlike psychologist Harry Harlowe's infamous experiments with monkeys and maternal deprivation -- where all his subjects ended up abnormal or dead from what has been termed "emotional anorexia" -- abused children are supposed to be more resilient. In fact, it's a common belief that child abuse isn't really that big of a deal and that abused children will eventually enter into adulthood with the same knowledge and tools as those who were not abused, or at least be able to gain them quickly and easily. Less acknowledged is the fact that there can be long-term and even lifelong physical, social and emotional consequences of child abuse. Oftentimes, the one affected doesn't even realize what those consequences are until well into adulthood. High anxiety, hyper-vigilance, thwarted sexuality and brain damage that went undiagnosed until the age of 46 were just some of the after-effects experienced by the author of Elephant Girl: A Human Story.

Nospin - somewhere along the line, I missed the reason you are being sent condolences. You needn't go into it again, but just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you. As always, glad to see you here. I've been missing some myself lately, doing some Christmas shopping online.

I've got to get into some decorating for the kids, but it's hard when your body won't cooperate. That junk is heavy! Of all the chores involved with Christmas, one I'm having the hardest time with now I started myself. When I had only two small ones, I started having a Christmas treasure hunt before we opened gifts at my house. Now the number has grown to five, and developing Christmas-related clues, about 4-5 each for a Kindergardener, first grade, second grade, fifth grade, and a two-year-old really taxes the small brain cell I have left. Not a prayer that the kids will let me forget, they love it. Any ideas out there? All assistance appreciated.

Not had a chance to even search for books, so I'm stealing as you all post. Thanks.
