Oh. My. What a concept! Seven novellas in one ebook, written by seven authors, each independent but tied by a common thread and one character. Action and suspense abound in each story, and the countdown of seven hours adds to the urgency. Since each one stands alone, though, they can be read without staying up all night. Assuming you can stop without going on to the next one, that is! Just to whet your appetite, here's a glimpse of a couple of the stories.

Rearview by Mike Delosso
Professor Dan Blakely has it all . . . until a false accusation leaves him in financial ruin with nothing to fall back on and little hope.

In a moment of desperation, he decides to do the unthinkable. But when he loses control of his SUV and careens down the side of a mountain, his plans take another turn.

Trapped beneath the frame of his mangled vehicle, Dan is visited by a mysterious stranger who offers him three choices. Filled with regret, Dan makes a decision . . . but little does he know that his troubles have only just begun.

The clock is ticking. What will you do with the time you have left?
This is the first book by Mike Delosso that I have read but it won't be my last. Tension infuses every page of this story, and I felt as if I had to read faster as if the ticking clock would run down before I finished! The perfect choice to begin this septet, Rearview will keep you glued to the page.

Whole Pieces by Ronie Kendig
In each installment of 7 Hours, a character is visited by the enigmatic Thomas Constant, who makes a heart-stopping statement: “You are about to die. But you may choose from one of three options: Live seven more hours, travel back in time and relive seven hours, or accept the inevitable and die now.”

After a brutal attack left him without a limb and his team dead, former Green Beret Haytham “Hawk” Wilson is angry at life and God. Bitter, he pushes everyone out of his life. Every day he relives his decision to send the Afghan boy home rather than following orders to kill any who came upon his hidden team. So when on his deathbed at age 36, eaten alive by grief and regret, he’s offered the chance to relive any seven hours, Hawk is determined to go back, kill the boy, and save his team. The decision is simple . . . until he gets there.

The clock is ticking. What will you do with the time you have left?
One of my favorite authors, Ronie Kendig is a brilliant writer whose passion for our military shines in her books. I couldn't wait to read her novella, and she delivered in spades! The inner struggles of a soldier, the fierce loyalty to his team, the compassion for the innocent. . .and a surprising discovery all combine to make this the type of high-stakes military drama that has become Ronie's trademark.

Each of the e-novellas are available individually now for $2.99 each on Amazon; the entire 7 Hours Omnibus containing all seven stories will be released on July 1.
