ALL WOMAN, A JAKE STONE THRILLER (BOOK FIVE), JUST 99 CENTS


The fifth installment of  the  popular  new series with a fresh take  on the battle  of the sexes,  All Woman,  A Jake  Stone  Thriller  (Book  Five),  is now available  at the following  online  book sellers:







“A new cult classic.”

“The Jake Stone Books are just plain fun.”

In this fifth installment of the popular new series, The Jake Stone Thrillers, Jake's lovely but ferocious friend, Snowflake, meets her most formidable opponent to date.  Can Jake help his beloved Snowflake overcome this deadly foe, or will he fall prey once again to his many weaknesses?

If you aren't yet acquainted with this rollicking new series, check out Deception, A Jake Stone Thriller (Book One) for a novel take on the battle of the sexes.  http://www.amazon.com/Deception-Stone-Thriller-Thrillers-ebook/dp/B005M2ROW8

"I grabbed this novel for $0.99 and started reading out of curiosity- after a few pages, I couldn't put it down! Mr. Peters writes in a very fresh, authentic style, and the characters have a real charm. The plot is well developed and keeps the pages turning. I'm already buying the next few books in the series. Do yourself a favor and check it out!" Tiger03

"In this fifth volume of The Jake Stone Thrillers, Snowflake must battle a lethal foe with almost supernatural strength.  This book features what has to be one of the most bizarre fight scenes of all time.  At about 60,000 words and over 200 pages, this is the longest book in the series, which to date comprises nearly a quarter million words.  I hope that Peters has another couple hundred thousand words in him.  The evolving relationship between the often hapless Jake and the always dynamic Snowflake is just too rich and quirky to end now."  Theodora K.

"T.L. Peters' way of writing is wonderful."  Kyanara  

“Because of Amazon and Kindle I'm reading authors I would not have been exposed to normally. I've read the complete Jake Stone series and have truly enjoyed them. The character development of both Jake and Snowflake and their daughter Fierce was excellent. I just had to keep reading and buying the next installment and did not want the series to end.” Old White Lady

New Reader Community Set To Launch This Friday, March 28

Press Release

Inkbok Promotional Release 

In the fast-paced ever changing landscape of the book industry, one company, Inkbok.com, is planning to shake things up a bit by first breaking all of the rules. 

Set to launch in late March, Inkbok will offer unlimited reading of thousands of books, articles, poetry, short stories and more on Android, iOS and web for $4.95 per month. Romance, mystery, children’s, self-help, business, fitness, science fiction and biography are a just a few of the over 50 genres represented on the site. Inkbok arrives on the heels of similar subscription-based e-reading services launched in the past few months, though at roughly half the cost - other services at $8-$10 per month and Inkbok at $4.95 per month. 
The question on everyone’s mind, however, is how could $4.95 unlimited reading possibly be good for publishers and authors? 

“The truly unique and innovative aspect of Inkbok is our community model of business,” says 30-year-old entrepreneur, Joey Ebach, founder of Inkbok. “It allows us to meet our three foundational goals: low cost reading, fair royalties, and giving back.” For authors and publishers, this “community model” means sharing in the total gross revenue of the website, meaning every dime of member fees, advertising, email blasts, book promotions and more is shared with authors.

Each month, Inkbok takes the total gross revenue generated from the site and splits it three ways: 60% to authors/publishers based on how many times their work was read, 30% to Inkbok, and 10% to a charity that the community votes on. “As Inkbok grows, it will benefit all of our authors and increase our impact on the outside community. There is nothing like this in the literary industry today,” says Konrad Urbanowicz, Inkbok’s Vice President and head developer. With Inkbok taking only 30% of it’s gross revenue to cover all of it’s expenses to run the site, pay employees, and make a profit, Urbanowicz is certainly correct that there is nothing else like this.  

This gross revenue sharing model is a new alternative to the traditional royalty system the publishing industry has used for years, and Inkbok may have struck a chord. In the past three months, they have gained 80 publishing partners and over a thousand authors. “The response thus far has been nothing short of amazing; our collection is growing exponentially,” says Urbanowicz. 

When asked why a platform like Inkbok is needed, Todd Ebach, President of Inkbok, stated that people have a natural desire to search and discover, readers included, but they don’t want to pay for the process by buying each book. The team at Inkbok believes that offering readers the freedom to discover through a subscription model will result in more people reading and more exposure and royalties for authors. “We want to recapture that exciting feeling of spending hours in an old used bookstore and never knowing what you might find.”

The word “community” seemed to be the driving force of our conversation. When asked about this, Joey Ebach replied, “Reading is a conversation between the author and the reader. Our desire is to bring this conversation into real time, connecting authors with readers, and readers with other readers.” The team views Inkbok as more than just a business, but a place where stories and ideas are created, discussed and shared. “Early on, we chose not to seek out funding from investors or venture capitalists,” says Ebach. “If we did, they would have never allowed us to give 60% of our gross revenue to authors and 10% to charity; that’s not exactly profit maximization. Rather, we are a group of book lovers working to create the best reader writer community in the world.”  

Inkbok is due to launch to readers on Friday, March 28. For more information, visit Inkbok.com.

DECEPTION, A JAKE STONE THRILLER (BOOK ONE), JUST 99 CENTS


The first volume of the cult classic about Jake Stone and his quirky friend, Snowflake -- DECEPTION, A Jake Stone Thriller (Book One) -- is available at e book sellers world-wide, including through the following online links :







“Deception was a fantastic read that had me on the edge of my seat. Every time I thought I had Jake Stone's mysterious woman figured out, she did or said something I wasn't expecting! This is a great read if you're looking for a powerful mystery thriller, and I can't wait to see what else comes out of this series.”

"I grabbed the first volume of The Jake Stone Thrillers for $0.99 and started reading out of curiosity--after a few pages I couldn't put it down.  Mr. Peters writes in a very fresh, authentic style, and the characters have a real charm.  The plot is well developed and keeps the pages turning.  I'm already buying the next few books in the series.  Do yourself a favor and check it out!" Tiger03

“Great series, loved each and every volume in this fast paced, futuristic series. Loved it! No amount of words can say how unique these stories are!”

“Because of Amazon and Kindle I'm reading authors I would not have been exposed to normally. I've read the complete Jake Stone series and have truly enjoyed them. The character development of both Jake and Snowflake and their daughter Fierce was excellent. I just had to keep reading and buying the next installment and did not want the series to end.” Old White Lady

“A New Cult Classic.”

“A gripping story”

“Love this writing style. New characters are easily introduced while developing the intriguing story line. Rapid moving story allows you to see what you are reading.
I am officially a fan.”

“Never have I read so much about female kick boxers/karate chopping, muscled, strong legs and shapely ankles of "Amazon" women…”

“I originally bought a Jake Stone novel because it was 99 cents. Then I got hooked and bought all the rest of the novels! I love Snowflake - she gives feminism a new face! Jake is a lovable, henpecked guy. The women are all great. I can hardly wait for a new one to be published.”

“I have purchased the books in this series from 1-9 and have enjoyed reading them all. They keep you reading and wanting to know what happens next.”

“Snowflake has managed to keep Jake alive through 16 episodes without becoming irrelevant, and that is more than most serial heroines could do, especially when functioning as a wife and a parent of a nearly as awesome daughter. Good thing that Snowflake knows better than to allow Jake to roam the beaches at Cancun alone, or the 16th would have ended before it began. I am about half way through what will be a one night read. These books are great as a wind down after a long day. I rate this a five because it is a great value, it doesn't upset me, and I always end up with a wry smile. Keep them coming, TLP!” Linda A. Root, a “prosecutor” and author of the acclaimed Queen of Scots Suite.

CRACK UP, A DIRK COBB THRILLER (BOOK ONE), JUST 99 CENTS


Crack Up, A Dirk Cobb Thriller (Book One), is available through the following e book stores:







"There are lots of surprises in this opening volume of The Dirk Cobb Thrillers, the most exciting of which for me being the introduction of Jake and Snowflake from the popular Jake Stone series as allies of Dirk as he battles one deadly villain after another.  Fans of the Jake Stone books are sure to get a kick out of Dirk's description of the lovely but ferocious Snowflake and her often hapless man Jake.  I might have pictured this unlikely couple a bit differently, but then again Dirk is a guy with plenty of quirks of his own.  An enjoyable and entertaining read whether or not you are acquainted with the Jake Stone books."  Theodora

"First rate entertainment!!  Peters supplies loads of action and plenty of fun."
