My Quarantine Gift to You!

Times are scary right now. The world is a mess, it doesn't matter in what country you live or what your religious or political believes are, the world is a big mess. I've been struggling for the last week to get work done because of all the uncertainty in the world. I live in the Netherlands, in an area that hasn't been too badly affected yet, but I've got friends all over the world and my heart goes out when I hear about shutdowns and quarantines and things like that.

I'm trying my best to stay positive, to not let the uncertainty mess with my head too much, but sometimes, that doesn't work.

Because of that, I'm putting all the first books in my series to free until the middle of April. I can't do much to help you, my readers, out from this tiny place on earth, this earth we all live on and which is currently being ravished by a virus, but I can do this much.

I will also link a Facebook group at the bottom of this post where more authors are sharing their freebies in the coming days, to make stocking up on reading material easier on our wallets. We don't ask for anything in return, you can just pick these books up for free, but a review or a share on social media is always appreciated.

 

Please, take care of yourself and your loved ones! Wash your hands often, with soap, make sure you have enough food at home to last you a week or two in case you or a loved one gets sick so you don't have to go outside (we don't want to spread the virus even faster), but don't overdo it or you might end up with a whole lot of spoilt food, and take care of yourself, take care of your physical and your mental health!

This post is going to get REALLY LONG, because I'm going to post cover, blurb and links where the books are free, so that you don't have to jump around this website to find things, that's why I'm going to create a couple of easy links through the post so that you can jump around at your leisure.

Don't forget to get all the way to the bottom for the Facebook group with even more free books and I'll see if I can also find a Twitter hashtag for those more inclined to the birdy platform.

Helheim Fallen Online, the next generation VRMMORPG will be released on 2042-04-02!
Sign up NOW to win a chance to be a beta tester!

Willow's life hasn't been easy. She's autistic, living in a community closed off from the rest of the world ‘for her own safety', and the only way she gets to interact with anyone is by logging in to the BASE (Bioelectrical Augmented Synapse Enhancement) platform and play videogames.
Her life revolves around playing VRMMORPGs with her close friends and making a little extra money on the side by trading items in the games so that she can buy pizza or new games when they come out.

The game she’s saving up for right now? Helheim Fallen Online, a Norse mythology inspired game, said to be changing the landscape of gaming forever.
Only, there are rumours going around that some people who get the beta invite for the game are going missing. It’s just a rumour, until her best friend Violet wins one of the beta keys and disappears, all traces of her gone, like she was never even there.

Now Willow is fighting against the clock to not only find out where Violet went, but why more people are going missing every day, and the only way to do that is by illegally getting into Helheim Fallen Online, play the game, and expose whoever is making people disappear.
And, above all, make sure she doesn’t get caught in the meantime and disappears herself.
She has ten days to pull it off.

The first flowers each spring bring big changes along with them.
Two women, thinking that they are too different, find that those differences don’t have to be bad…

Dani lost all her dreams in the divorce three years ago, but she’s finally saved up enough to live her own dream this time. So, she moves to the island with her young daughter, Rose, to open a flower shop, ready for a new start in her life.
Her heart is still tender, but when she catches a glimpse of her daughter’s teacher, things start to change.

Kim is the only one of her siblings who still lives on the island. She loves her job as a primary school teacher but with siblings with big careers, she feels like she’s always behind them, never the same. She teaches, takes care of her parents and still feels like she’s not doing enough, like she’s supposed to do more.
That is, until she gets a new pupil in her class whose mother makes her rethink everything she ever presumed about her life, who makes her rethink everything she believed in.

Spring is coming and that means teaching about plants and colours and how things grow. A tour around the town with Kim’s class, trying to spot spring flowers and a couple of little lambs, brings the women closer together. But it’s not until an intimate moment at a dinner party that things start to get intense.
This year, will there be more than just flowers blooming on the island?

A chance meeting in the online game Destruction of Elysium changes the lives of a healer and a tank forever.

The digital worlds of MMORPGs are Alex’ only safe space. Online, she’s the great AlexTheDestroyer, leader of one of the biggest raiding guilds in Destruction of Elysium, a max level tank who can handle any monster and she knows her way around every dungeon. In real life, she’s just Alex, a clumsy girl who’s hyper and too impulsive.
Until she meets a healer who seems to be able to heal more than just her online character. Only, Alex can’t fall for her. The guild desperately needs a new healer, or they’ll lose their top rank.
Can she risk the fate of the guild just to confess to the one girl who really seems to get her?

Fleur is a girly-girl who loves flowers, dresses and being a healer in her favourite MMORPG.
But in this online world, like in real life, she feels like she’s only playing a role, never truly herself.
That is until she meets a tank who seems to match her play style perfectly. She’s curious but also a little wary.
Can she really trust someone she met in a videogame?

When Alex and Fleur meet offline at the yearly guild meeting, everything they ever knew starts to shift…

One clueless queen-to-be, four princes to change her world forever.

Before her vital first cup of coffee in the morning, Litha finds out she’s a witch and is suddenly transported to a magical world she didn’t know existed. As if that wasn’t strange enough, it turns out that she’s prophesied to be queen and her parents only took her to the human world to protect her from those who want her dead. But now she’s at Lughnasadh Elite Academy and face to face with her four potential… kings?

It doesn’t help that all four princes are sexy and hot and make her insides squirm when she catches sight of them. There is Bane, the werewolf prince, all broody and with hair sticking up like he just got out of bed. Kit, the incubus prince, whose wicked smile melts anyone’s unmentionables. Rune, the dragon prince, protective and with muscles like he’s a moving mountain. And last, but definitely not least, Finn, the fae prince, quiet but intense, with eyes like a summer forest.

According to the prophecy, Litha will marry the true ruler of the four kingdoms. But having grown up human, in the human world, she has no idea where to start making sense of all of it, and the four princes pursuing her really don’t help with trying to figure it all out.

He's trouble. She's falling apart.

LIZZY
I should have known he was trouble when I watched him drive his motorbike onto campus, leaving a trail of people whispering as he made his way into the Art Building.
Word around here is, he doesn’t date. So why do his eyes keep following me? Why does he want to talk to me?
Rumor has it, Hunter’s good at two things: making art, and getting into fights. I love art, but I can’t stand violence. I’ve been on the receiving end of it too many times.
My life is simple, it needs to be if I want to graduate and keep my eating disorder at bay… I sleep, I eat, I go to class and I definitely Do. Not. Date.

So why do I feel so safe in his strong arms?

HUNTER
She’s like a spooked little mouse. Not my type at all. Until she looked up at me and I was caught in her azure eyes.
But I won’t let her get close. In the last four years, I’ve lost everyone I’ve ever loved. I will never trust anyone ever again. The second I do, I’ll find myself alone again. So, what’s the use?
So I create big metal installations, I go to class when I feel like it, I drink and get into fights at the bar.
I have to stay away from Lizzy, because my darkness will only make hers worse. I know I have to, but that isn’t what my heart wants. When I see the pain in her eyes, I can’t resist her. I want to help her, touch her…

Protect her.

One coastal town full of memories, three boys she used to know.

Fleeing her abusive ex, a dead-end job and no prospects for anything better, Mia returns to the coastal town where she used to spend her summers as a kid. She hopes that sorting through the old things in her grandma’s house may give her an idea of what she wants to do for her future. What she didn’t expect was to run into the three boys who used to make her heart race.

It starts with Dylan, the brainiac, now a maths teacher at a nearby secondary school. Then Mal, the joker, who plays guitar in a band and composes music. And finally, Tom, the protector, a single dad who works as a carpenter.

But dark shadows hang over them all, they all have demons in their past, and secrets. The guys she meets aren’t the same as the boys she used to know, but neither is Mia, who may be keeping the biggest secret of them all.

A fallen angel with wings black as night…

Florian has been trying to get rid of his angel powers ever since he lost his last charge in an accident that was entirely his fault. Ever since he spends his nights bar tending at the local gay bar, ignoring his angel nature and pretending to be human. Until one night, he meets a sexy man with purple hair on the roof of the bar and he wants nothing more but to spend the night with him.

Seth has been wearing his demon brand for years. The price to pay to bring his band to the top. But these days, life is nothing but a drag, so even though he has to protect his rock star image, he goes to a gay bar, hoping to find some solace. When he climbs up to the roof to take look over the city at night, a beautiful man proposes to spend the night together, and for the first time in years, he accepts. Is this a mistake, or is there more hidden behind the eyes of the beautiful stranger?

The plan was only for the night, but will the men be able to let each other go, especially after the secrets they reveal the next morning?

No matter how much you try to leave your past behind, it doesn’t always leave you…

Sean
After being hired for my dream job, I move back to the small minded town where I grew up, for the job and to finish my degree.
I’m surrounded by my past, by old classmates, old neighbourhoods and old prejudices against gay people.
But on my first day back, my eyes fall on something new around here. A goth guy sitting at the front of the class and I can’t keep my eyes off him.
Even though I don’t know him, I feel like I need to protect him, no matter what.

Jules
I can’t stay in the same place for too long. People start to notice that you don’t age, that you don’t get older, and add to that that the chance of vampire hunters finding you gets bigger the longer you stay…
I know that I’m running out of time in this town. I need to move on. I just need to finish my degree and then I can leave and start over somewhere else.
But when my housemate/blood donor turns on me and forces me to leave, I suddenly find myself asking for help from the new guy in our class.
Leaving doesn’t look as appealing anymore…

Yesterday, my sister called me and told me that Logan passed away, leaving behind an Omega and a child.
Today, I’m at Logan’s funeral. Why am I offering to look after his little family?

Sterling
Logan and I had everything we wanted: a house, a beautiful daughter and lots of big dreams. Then he was ripped away from us in a car crash.
His family is too busy to help me out after the funeral, so one of Logan’s old friends steps in.
Only, in all the commotion, I didn’t keep an eye on the calendar, and my heat starts at the most inconvenient of times.
And why is Logan’s friend reacting to my heat? Only true mates are supposed to react to a mated Omega…

What’s an Alpha to do? Well, maybe ask the cute Omega who seems to be in need of some cheering up after his Alpha leaves him.
Nothing should go wrong if I invite him to be my fake husband for the weekend, right?

Aiden
After my sister leaves me her three-month-old to look after, I want to be the parent that she can’t be for him.
Life as a single Omega parent won’t be easy, but I’m sure I can manage. Although, even I can’t resist the looks from the handsome Alpha who runs the cafe I frequent, or the way that he makes me smile during this crappy week.
What could go wrong in accepting to be his fake husband for a weekend?

Nathan
I’m supposed to be an author, but I haven’t finished a book in years. Not since things got out of control. So, to hopefully get back on my feet, I move to a new city, start teaching at college and suddenly find myself intrigued by two Omegas that pass me by every morning.
One day, on a whim, I follow them and see something I shouldn’t have seen. A kiss. A beautiful kiss. And it stirs something inside me…

Zeke
I fled from the arranged marriage my parents set up for me and I was ready to give up on love entirely, and then my best friend saved his younger Omega brother, Wes, from a bad situation and suddenly I was falling, head over heels. It’s amazing to be at Wes’ side and to see him flourish, even if our relationship is a little complicated, we’re making it work. Maybe love isn’t so bad after all.
What I hadn’t counted on was the Alpha walking into the cafe, and the way my eyes keep getting drawn to him…

Wes
After my brother saved me from my abusive ex, I’m getting my feet back under me. I’m finally doing the things I was never able to do, like having a job and going to college. It’s not easy to combine it with caring for my four children. But with my Omega boyfriend Zeke and my brother’s family at my side, we make it work, they’re all the people I’ll ever need.
Until, one morning, an Alpha walks into the cafe that I work at, and he asks Zeke and me out on a date, together…

The Mating Ball used to be a yearly event where bachelor Alpha werewolves meet potential mates, but now it’s a party mostly used to hook up with as many people as you can.

Ethan, one of the humans hired to entertain the werewolves, goes into the event with only one expectation: getting paid for having fun. The prospect of maybe meeting an Alpha female is only a bonus.

Max, a successful Alpha, has been getting pressure from all sides to settle down and prove his Alpha genes. Two problems: he doesn’t believe that the Mating Ball works and he is only interested in men.

Once there, he meets Ethan, who catches his attention immediately, but the man insists that he isn’t gay, or interested in Max.
As the ball comes to an end, the two men can no longer deny their attraction and take off together. Only to wake up to a very special surprise.

BASE Status: Update (BASE Status 2) – E. Engberts

After the new Flowers and Keyboards serial starting up again, I couldn't leave this one behind. So, here is the second book of the BASE Status series!

This will update twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday!

Some people who may have clicked around here or on the Engberts website, may already have seen that, just like Colour Her, this book is also available for pre-order (everywhere but Amazon because of stupid Amazon rules) while it's running as a serial. The tentative release date for BASE Status: Update as a full book is the 9th of July.

If you've not read the first book, BASE Status: Online, you can buy a copy or read the first draft as a serial through here: BASE Status: Online

With all that out of the way, let's get to the story!

Augmented reality like you’ve never experienced before!
No more need for headsets or other devices to dive into a virtual world, everything comes right from your BASE unit!
Try out this brand new experience with Shades of the Spirit World!

After saving Helheim Fallen Online from certain company destruction and a lot of people from harm, Willow’s life seems to be going in the right direction. She has a job, her best friends in the guild she plays in and plans for the future. A future that she never thought she’d be able to get not even six months ago, a future that was kept from her because she’s autistic.

Now an update to the BASE (Bioelectrical Augmented Synapse Enhancement) unit and platform open up a world of opportunities for her. It promises a full virtual reality experience but as an augmented reality instead, something she’s been wishing for for years.

The new game that’s going to be released at the same time as the update, Shades of the Spirit World, at first just seems like a fun way to spend the time. It’s not the most complicated or involved of games, but it looks beautiful. That is, until some strange things start to happen in the AR world. Some AI are showing very human traits, more so than anything she’s seen before.
And when there are reports of AI going rogue and killing other AI, something the game hadn’t been programmed to do, things start to get really interesting. Read More!
