Louie Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland Beyond The Black Door by A.M. Strickland sounds amazing! It's about this teenage girl named Kamai who journeys into people's souls while they sleep. Whenever she goes into a soul she always sees the same black door that her mother tells her never to open, but when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable, she opens the door.

Rachel Bosston To be honest, I'm interested only in "Agent Running in the Field" book. I wrote my own short story using material from essayexplorer.com about a spy, who used iwriter in his daily job. I like spy stories and hope that it would be interesting to read. Maybe I would find inspiration for my next story and probably I would use essayexplorer again for this. Hope that one day I'll see my book in this blog.
