Final 2 Free Days! "In The Beginning" Intro To Sci-fi Thriller "Haunted... Road Not Taken" Free Sunday, Oct. 23 and Monday, Oct. 24

"How often do you find yourself unhappily committed to a book?" asked Pollens. "I believe "HAUNTED" would not be in this category, but I want readers to have... the "IN THE BEGINNING" option ... FREE on Sunday, Oct. 23 and again on Oct 24."

    BEAVERTON, OR, October 19, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Here's a bit of what the story is about...

In spite of years of successful academic achievement, Dr. Harold Treadwell, a PHD psychologist at Philadelphia's Jess Hawkins University (JHU), has extremely low self-esteem. Memories of a year's earlier incident plague him and he loses himself in the complexities of a sleep-study research project.

Harold's proposed research focuses on sufferers of undiagnosed and untreated mysterious pain... mental and physical difficulties that appear without warning and ruin lives. Harold spends five-years designing a sleep-stasis chamber... a necessary apparatus in the proposed study. Finally, he submits a grant application to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its approval is in doubt until an unexpected source of support with NIH influence surfaces.

"That much is all in the "IN THE BEGINNING" intro," explained Pollens, "and I believe is enough to excite readers who will want to get the full tale." The intro runs more than 35 pages and more than 7000 words. The Kindle eBook version is normally available for $2.99 at but will be free during Oct. 23 and 24. Get it by entering "Allen Pollens, 'IN THE BEGINNING' in the Amazon search window or use this link:
