If you would like to request me to review something for you. You can post it here or start your own discussion under your name. And know that there is a folder call "Current Projects" in which you can post your upcoming work....

As for me specifically...I will review pretty much anything that fiction and only certain nonfiction &/or historical titles...

Kristen Taber | 78 comments Hi, Jessi! Whenever you get a chance (and if you're interested), I'd love to get your thoughts/review on Aerenden: The Child Returns. Information for it is here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

I'd do a cover link, but for some reason, the book is no longer showing up when searched on Goodreads. Odd technical day :).

Jessi, here is the blurb:

Fifty/Fifty and Other Stories is a collection of eleven outstanding short stories by Northern Irish author Matthew W. McFarland.

In 'Fifty/Fifty', a policeman is called out to an attempted suicide on the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. His previous experience with 'jumpers' has led to one death and one life saved - his current record is fifty/fifty, but all that is about to change.

In 'Defenestration', a man is thrown from the twelfth storey of a building in mysterious circumstances. As he falls towards almost certain death, he contemplates his fate, killer whales, flying cats, and the untapped potential of the human mind.

In 'The Burning Bar', a man enters a burning building to rescue the love of his life, and becomes trapped, as the whole place collapses around him. Will he manage to escape before it is too late?

'What Have You Done?' deals with the legacy of the conflict in Northern Ireland, as a civil servant comes face to face with an ex-terrorist, leading him to discover how the previous generation coped with living through the worst of the Troubles.

These, and seven other stories, touching on sport, fatherhood, arachnophobia, faith, and cannibalism, make up an exciting collection of short fiction which will leave readers wanting more.

Jessica McQuay (jessica27) | 14 comments Hey Jessi,

My YA Fantasy novel, Black Moon Black Moon (Paige Tailor Series #1) by Jessica McQuay , is coming out this Thanksgiving. I'd love to give you a PDF copy for early review if you're interested in reading it. Below is the same blurb you'll find about it here on goodreads. =D Trailer for the book is on the goodreads page for it as well.

"Am I losing my mind?"

Paige couldn't help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?

Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she's always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?




Let me know if you're interested. Thanks!

Jessica

Hi Jessi,

I'd like to offer my title for review consideration. It's called Incidental Happenstance, and it's been getting favorable reviews here and on Amazon.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

It's a modern romance novel, and is a pretty easy read...let me know if you or one of your other reviewers in interested, and I'll provide any other info you need!

Thanks, Kim

Prudence Hayes | 4 comments Are you interested in reviewing "When it Rains: The Umbrella Collection"?

If so, let me know :)Here is alittle about it.
http://amzn.com/B00AZSCI48

With rain chasing her at her heels and her fear of rain flowing through her veins, Nora is in a downward spiral mentally and trying to grasp onto anything that will stop her. For many years she has been trying to come to grips with her parent’s death in a car crash and a voice that she incessantly hears in her head that announces only evil.
She lives amongst a testosterone filled family; Pops, her uncles and cousins that have never wavered in their love but are often overshadowed by the darkness that overwhelms her.
With the loss of a friendship, running into the man that killed her parents, and her family confronting her about her issues, all with the sound of the voice echoing throughout, she is brought to the edge of insanity and to her breaking point. Will she win the battle in her mind or succumb to defeat?
