Krista Breen (KristaMichelleBreen) | 2 comments Quicksand: The Mysterious Disappearance of Dakotaroo

The first book in my seven book series, Quicksand generally appeals to horse crazy kids who value strong friendships and fast paced mystery.

Kindle available.

Reviews posted on Amazon and Goodreads would be great.

Cordelia Dinsmore (CordeliaDinsmore) | 3 comments I would love an opportunity for someone to review my MG novel, Michaela's Gift. It's a bit on the light fantasy side, but mostly a story of relationships. Anyone interested can email me at

Marcy Blesy (marcyblesy) | 1 comments Hello. I would love a review of my MG contemporary fiction novel. It is available as a kindle book.

Here is the blurb for "Confessions of a Corn Kid"

Twelve-year-old Bernie Taylor doesn't fit in. She wants to be an actress but not your typical country-music lovin', beef-eatin' actress you'd expect from Cornville, Illinois. No way. She wants to go to Chicago to be a real actress, just like her mom did before she died of breast cancer. Bernie keeps a journal that her Mom gave her and writes down all her confessions, the deepest feelings of her heart, 'cause she doesn't want any of those regrets Mom talked about. Regrets sound too much like those bubbly blisters she keeps getting on her feet from trying to fit into last year's designer knock-off shoes. But it's not easy for Bernie to pursue her dreams. Her dad just doesn't understand. Plus, she's tired of being bullied for being different. Why can't middle schoolers wear runway fashions to school?

Then, during the announcement of the sixth grade play, Bernie's teacher reveals that there will be one scholarship to a prestigious performing arts camp in Chicago. Bernie knows it's her one big chance to achieve her dream. She spends too much time dreaming of the lead role in the play (which includes kissing Cameron Edmunds) and not enough time practicing her audition lines. She bumbles her lines, blows her audition, and battles her bully, Dixie Moxley, reigning Jr. Miss Corn Harvest Queen. She digs in with the heels of her hand-me-down knee-high boots, determined to win that scholarship-somehow. If she doesn't, she'll be stuck in Cornville forever, far away from the spotlight she craves.

Valerie | 1 comments Could use some reviewers for my Hobbit parody--any format of ebook is available.

Title: An Unexpected Parody: The Unauthorized Spoof of The Hobbit

Valerie Estelle Frankel has won a Dream Realm Award, an Indie Excellence Award, and a USA Book News National Best Book Award for her Henry Potty parodies. She’s the author of many books on pop culture, including From Girl to Goddess: The Heroine’s Journey in Myth and Legend, Buffy and the Heroine’s Journey, Katniss the Cattail: An Unauthorized Guide to Names and Symbols in The Hunger Games, Teaching with Harry Potter, and Harry Potter: Still Recruiting. Her latest book is the Hobbit spoof, An Unexpected Parody. Learn more at

“Three books were given to the fans, with many appendices to boot, and from them sprang a mighty genre.” An Unexpected Parody: The Unauthorized Spoof of The Hobbit revisits the film with mayhem, mirth, and magic missiles—or at least, crumpled newspaper missiles. Torn Teepeeshield, the Hot Prince of the Dwarves, puts aside his developing stardom in dwarf cabaret to quest to the Lame Old Mountain and destroy the dragon Erpolushun, or in the common tongue, Smog. Gonedaft the Grey, formerly known as Gonedaft the Grizzled and Gonedaft of the Rainbow Tie-die that He So Can’t Pull Off, recruits Bumble Baglunch, country gentleman and professional coward, since as an avid comic book fan and all-around geek, Bumble’s too smart to fall prey to obvious fantasy clichés. Together with Bobbin, Noggin, Rover, Clover, Sloppy, Ploppy, Frappe, Hottie, Spottie, Quaff, Sloth, and Ezekiel the dwarves, they journey across Renfair Earth to revive their franchise. Destiny may be a word writers use to pave over plotholes, but Bumble is determined to triumph nonetheless and play as good a game of goblin golf as his ancestors.

A.J. York | 2 comments Delilah Dusticle has special powers, she can completely eradicate dust. With her quiver pouch of special dusters Delilah can run up walls and reaches places others just can’t. As a maid in the Fenchurch-Whittington house Delilah’s unusual skills soon lead to her being promoted to Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover. Until one day a broken heart leads to her powers taking an expected turn.

This is the first in a series of touching and funny stories about Delilah Dusticle. Follow her on a journey of self-discovery, friendship and adventure.


A suit of armour standing beside her in the hall coughed and shot out a puff of dust from its helmet. “Staff are not permitted to fraternise with the family and any shenanigans would lead to instant dismissal,” wheezed the armour.

“Don’t I know it,” said Delilah who then waved her duster at the falling dust cloud making it vanish in mid-air. For good measure she selected her dandelion duster and polished the armour, who was very ticklish and kept giggling. She then made her way to the staff kitchen for dinner.

I would like a review for my ebook, I can email over a mobi file.

Susan Day (susandayauthor) | 12 comments Dogs in Space!

My latest release is free on Smashwords until Feb 21, 2015.
The link is

Please use this coupon code at checkout: AG57P

The book is available in a variety of formats including mobi (Kindle), iBooks, Sony, Kobo and PDF.
Reviews gratefully received 

Come on! How hard can it be to find a replacement for the moon? Just head into space with a Moon Detector and it should be easy, surely? Well, maybe not for our heroes. They are after all dogs and prone to, well, shall we say, ‘little’ accidents. For example, knocking the spaceship off course; heading directly into the sun, being attacked by aliens… being scared to death of traveling in space…

And there’s a more!

Down on planet Earth things are going well either. Speed Bump Charlie, the wicked cat, has hatched a plot so extreme and so heinous it cannot be recorded here. If you have read the other books in this series you’ll know that he does not like dogs. They spoil his freedom by chasing him up trees; they get far too much attention from their owners and worse; they leave slobber in his food bowl. This time Speed Bump Charlie and his side kick, Furball, think they have the best device in the world that will rid the world of dogs forever!

Can Astro and the gang really find a replacement for the moon? Can Speed Bump Charlie use his ingenious device to lure every dog in the world to their doom? And can, Alfie really ‘blow’ the spaceship back on course?


Thank you!

Susan Day (susandayauthor) | 12 comments Grab a copy of Astro is Down in the Dumps for a limited time from Smashwords.

Use the code ES84Q when you get to the checkout.

You can download it as a mobi (Kindle), kobo, iBooks, PDF and epub!

I would really like your feedback and ideas. This is not my favourite format because it's too restrictive. The print book will look much better when it's published (very soon) but you'll be able to see what it's all about.

I want to send a copy of this book to every school and library. I have set up a crowd funding campaign and all monies from sales will go to this support this plan. To get the book noticed it will need reviews. If you have time could you please leave your thoughts about the book on Amazon, Smashwords and Goodreads?

Thank you in advance!

The Sound Catcher by Graham Garrity

The Sound Catcher

Children's Fantasy/Adventure 7-12 years.
140 pages. Illustrated.
Suitable to be read to younger children.

Once a sound is made it does not disappear, as most people believe, but becomes a stray sound, floating through the atmosphere and popping up in some unusual places, often with alarming consequences. Since Chloe banged her head she's been hearing lots of strange sounds. She's also met the Sound Catcher. Seated on his Sound Machine they zoom around the country capturing as many stray sounds as they can. At first Chloe finds it exciting. But things take a turn for the worse when she hears the stray sound of a mystery voice planning something diabolical. In order to stop whatever it is that's about to happen they need to gather more clues. Will they succeed or will they be too late?

Available for review as PDF or Free on Kindle Unlimited.

Graham Garrity (grahamgarrity) | 5 comments Please help. I'm looking for reviews for my book, Bullies, Ghosts and Jars Full of Smoke.

Bullies, Ghosts and Jars Full of Smoke by Graham Garrity

Bullies and Ghosts can be scary. But they can also be lots of fun.

Sometimes, in order to stop bullying at school, you need to become a ghost hunter.

Phil Lewis is perhaps the last person you would expect to be involved in paranormal mystery and adventure, but when he and his brother Andy find themselves at the mercy of the school bully, Caligula, action and adventure await with a challenge to catch a ghost in a haunted house.

The haunted house in question is Degville's Dungeon. Nobody goes near it because of the ghosts of Degville and his son, Percy.

But when Phil and Andy stumble onto the house's grounds they meet with more than just a paranormal mystery. Bob, the elderly security guard, takes pity on them and invites them inside, where they tell their story, and together they come up with a cunning plan that will hopefully put paid to the bullying at school once and for all.

Phil and Andy will become ghost hunters, and challenge Caligula to catch a ghost at Degville's Dungeon. The plan then is to lead him on a mystery adventure round the grounds and scare the pants off him. But things are never quite what they seem, and in trying to frighten the school bully, the two brothers might find they've stumbled on something to chill the stoutest of hearts.

A PDF is available for review purposes.

Thanks for reading.

D.S Allen (DSAllen) | 2 comments The Bone Whisperer by D.S. Allen
Hi, I am looking for reviews for my new release. It is upper Middle Grade/younger YA. Set in Ireland, it is a mystery adventure with paranormal and environmental themes. It is Book 2 in The Adventures of George & Flanagan series, but I think can stand alone without any problems. If you are interested, please let me know! Here is the blurb:
Who couldn't resist the lure of a treasure map and the prospect of untold riches?
But, as George and Flanagan are about to discover, treasure hunting is a dangerous business. The stakes couldn't be higher as Tam McMaster, local bigwig and 'first man of Ballymagee', plans to build a new property development exactly where 'X' marks the spot. Can George and Flan stop the development and save the treasure? And, more importantly, can they stop the destruction of a beauty spot that is a safe haven to Ballymagee's wildlife?
Along the way, George must convince Katie and Dougie to help him battle his own demons as the curse of the mysterious White Lady strikes again.
