James Erich (jameserich) | 51 comments DreamsBook one of my "Dreams of Fire and Gods" YA Fantasy trilogy will be released tomorrow, December 15th!

Blurb:

A thousand years ago, two factions of gods, the Stronni and the Taaweh, nearly destroyed the Kingdom of Dasak by warring for the land and the frightened humans who lived there. Then suddenly the Taaweh vanished and the Stronni declared victory.

Now, as tensions escalate between the emperor and his regent, Vek Worlen, the Vek's son, apprentice mage Sael dönz Menaük, finds himself allied with a homeless vagabond named Koreh. Together they flee the capital city and make their way across a hostile wilderness to the Vek's keep, mere steps ahead of the emperor’s assassins.

But Koreh has dreams—dreams of the ancient Taaweh—and he knows the looming war between the emperor and the Vek will be nothing compared to the war that is about to begin. The Taaweh are returning, and the war between the gods may destroy the kingdom once and for all. Dreams (Dreams of Fire and Gods, #1) by James Erich

Jo Ramsey (Jo_Ramsey) | 1017 comments I have 2 new releases!

Listening Skills is a sequel to my short story Life Skills. Brian's girlfriend Trista isn't entirely happy with their relationship, and his boyfriend Javier wants something more. For Christmas, can he give them both what they want?

Accepting Me is a follow-up to my novel Cluing in (and would have been a follow-up to Opening Up, except that isn't out yet...). All Shane wants for Christmas is for his family to accept that he isn't interested in relationships, romance, or sex.

Ibis3 | 62 comments I'm pre-announcing my release, since I imagine people might be rather busy over the next couple of days. I've got a short story I'll be putting up for sale likely tomorrow if not later tonight, and I'm hoping you'll come round to look for it. It's a Victorian Christmas tale of two youths who bridge some differences to forge a (more than) friendship that will last a lifetime. Style is a bit Dickensian (think of it sort of like I'm kind of imitating myself imitating someone writing at the same time as Charles) and includes some Dickensian elements (no ghosts, but a harsh boyhood, a happy family Christmas celebration, and a major coincidence).

Russell Sanders (goodreadscomrussell_sanders) | 18 comments My young adult novel Thirteen Therapists is now available for purchase on Amazon, with an ebook version on Omnilit. The book is a coming of age/coming out story about a high school senior boy who has mother problems and eventually boyfriend problems. His newest therapist (he's had twelve others) helps him wade through all the mess. It is listed here on Goodreads. Check it out!

Well this works, then. There is usually a little delay - congrats on having it out there now.
