Bronsen Hawkins (indiesentreader) | 4 comments My book, Surviving: High School, is a YA fiction about a highschooler who is trying to get his life back to normal after the death of his father. He is struggling with being who he was and who his father would have wanted him to be. And all that is topped with him having to deal with all the pressures that high school naturally has.

All in all I welcome anyone to read it, and I love reviews.

Luckily, the yacht is disabled by space debris, and Sarah is rescued by a young merchant, Pall Swiftcar, who takes her aboard his freighter. Unluckily, there has been a misunderstanding, and the merchant thinks they are married. While Sarah sleeps, he sets course for the asteroid belt (the hoop). Sarah is about to encounter several asteroids inhabited by people of very different cultures, and she is going to experience danger, hard work, and romance.

E.M. Tippetts (emtippetts) | 10 comments In January I'll release the sequel to my chick lit novel, Someone Else's Fairytale, so here I'll tell you about Fairytale (I've got other books out as well):

Jason Vanderholt is the hottest actor in Hollywood. Chloe Winters is a college student who hasn't bothered to see most of his movies. When they meet by chance he is smitten and she becomes the woman every other woman in America is dying to be, but it just isn't her fairytale.

Readers have been very generous with this book, both in terms of sales and reviews, and for that I'm most grateful! The sequel is called Nobody's Damsel and will be out Jan. 5.

Cindy Lyle (cindylyle) The Dragon Within

Deep within the mortal world of Eiddoril, war rages and the blood of innocents flows freely. Once ruled by the four elements—Earth, Fire, Water and Air—Eiddoril was a peaceful, beautiful land. Now, after three hundred years of being ravaged by an evil lord and abandoned by their true gods, the people and land of Eiddoril are dying.

In the kingdom of Gareth, an orphan girl is raised as one of the royal family. But when she begins to have vivid nightmares of a past that is not hers, she cannot help but wonder if she is somehow a part of that past. But how? Her questions lead her to Fitch, an old magic user, who helps her discover a shocking truth. Karah is not human, but instead part of a long-forgotten race charged with the responsibility of saving her realm. Armed with a desire to seek the truth, Karah sets out on a dangerous quest to defeat a deadly enemy.

In this fantasy tale, Karah must somehow find the strength to fulfill a destiny that has the potential to forever silence the dragon within. She cannot fail. The future of the world depends on her.

I would love to hear from anyone who has read my book.
Happy reading everyone!

Amanda Torrey | 1 comments Hi everyone! Thanks for this group! :)
My debut YA is Teen Fury: Unleashed. (I'm sorry, I have no idea how to link it??)
Here's the blurb:

Adopted at birth, fifteen year old Felicia Murphy has no idea she’s the offspring of a Fury and a god of Mercy. The discovery will soon shatter her world...

Felicia’s reputation as stable and trustworthy means everything if she’s to win the grant for the troubled kids she mentors.

Snakes emerging from her head, massive mood swings, and a strong thirst for vengeance do not fit into her plans. She has no time to worry about her adoptive parent’s separation and the unwanted discovery that her biological parents are supernatural freaks. She can’t confide in her friends; who would believe her?

As her life spins out of control, she allows herself to be distracted by the two new guys who are suddenly showering her with attention, pulling her in different directions.

Felicia has choices to make. Embrace the Fury and risk everything, or find a way to tame the beast.

It's currently on sale for only 99 cents on all of the ebook retailers. Or if you're interested in a free copy in exchange for an honest review, please contact me on Goodreads or my email: amandatorreyauthor@hotmail.com

Thanks so much! :)

Jessica | 3 comments My book:
Delta Project: Hide

D005 has been a part of a secret government program known as the Delta Project her entire life. She has been genetically modified to be stronger, faster, smarter and to heal faster. Trained in hand-to-hand combat, weaponry and battle tactics, she has been worked to physical and mental exhaustion every day of her life. Raised without love or care of any kind, she has no idea what it means to be happy – to be free. And now she has run away. But then she wakes up on the rocky shore of the Missouri River with no memory of how she got there, or why there are bullet wounds, scratches and bruises riddling her body. Her entire past has become a blank sheet except for a recurring nightmare of her running through the woods with dogs chasing her and voices shouting at her that she can never hide. As she struggles to understand the kind of life she has never had, emotions she has never felt before, and the mystery of her past, she is helped by Brianna Hartman and Reid Phelps – the two teenagers who discover her. When she goes to live with Brianna at the Hartman Ranch, she must also learn to deal with Bri’s brother, the gruff Cormac Hartman, who is running from his own past. He seems to hate her from the word go, but when she discovers his crude attitude is just his way of dealing with the hurt he is feeling, she decides to make it her mission to draw him back into life. Then a mysterious stranger comes to the ranch and her new world comes crashing down around her as her past comes back to haunt her

Jessica McQuay (jessica27) | 7 comments Black Moon is a YA/NA Paranormal Fantasy

Black Moon (Paige Tailor Series, #1) by Jessica McQuay

"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?

One day an orphan found her family, and soon discovered wings, Hybrid blood and a hidden chest of inner talents. Talents so dark, they could stop a breath.

In the world of creations, a half-angel, half-human Hybrid played the air with her fingers like a classical pianist. Entangled between her fingers, on laced strips of leather, hung red Pebbles that could unlock whole worlds.
Alex tumbled into a snow lapped graveyard. Wounded, bloodied and now lost in her identity. She could but make one choice, one decision. However, how far would she go to find herself, and what would it cost?

The cost would be more than she ever dreamed!

Cheri (cherilasota) | 6 comments Excited to learn about everyone's books! I've got one YA novel, Artemis Rising, that just got a new cover--though I've not gotten it up on Goodreads as yet! Artemis Rising

This story is an unusual twist on two ancient mythologies.

On the voy­age home to the Azores Islands, Eva accepts the pagan name of Arethusa but learns too late that her life will mir­ror the Greek nymph's tragic end. Her mother reveals that her des­tiny lies with Diogo, the shipowner's volatile son. But Eva has a vision of another...

When the ship founders in a storm off the coast, Tristan, a local boy, saves her life and steals her heart. Destined to be with Diogo yet aching for Tristan's for­bid­den love, Eva must some­how choose between them, or fate will choose for her.

I also have a contemporary short story out on Amazon called Mending Time.

Jack walks Aurelia home every day from her college classes. She just doesn't know it. What will it take for her to notice him? Is he willing to take the risk and accept the consequences?

My newest came out in November and it's YA SciFi/Adventure
Knot in Time by Alan Tucker
Here's the back cover copy:
My name is Darius Arthur Heisenberg, but most people call me Dare. If my last name sounds familiar, it’s probably because of my great-great uncle Werner Heisenberg. He was a physicist who came up with something called the Uncertainty Principle. But listen, Uncle Werner had no idea how uncertain things really are.

I work for a group, called the Keepers, that label themselves the custodians of time. And, believe me, time is a mess. It needs all the custodians it can get. Which is, of course, why the Keepers selected me, a nineteen-year-old high school dropout, to join them. I recently worked as a janitor for a couple months. Perfect fit, right?

Okay, it didn’t make much sense to me either, but I wasn’t in a position to turn down a steady job and a roof over my head. Besides, all I’m supposed to do is travel through time and save the universe as we know it, how hard could it be?

Yeah, better hold on. This could get ugly.

Sara Burr (sarafurlongburr) | 12 comments Hello,

My first book Enigma Black (Book 1) is a Science Fiction/Dystopian/Romance about a young woman's quest for retribution after the murders of her family at the hands of an unknown entity.

Here is the full synopsis:

When she was just seventeen, the course of Celaine Stevens' life was permanently altered with the murders of her father, mother, and brother in one of a series of mysterious and violent explosions occurring across the country. Struggling with picking up the pieces, she's haunted by the memory of that day and her promise of retribution against those responsible for her misery. But just as she seems to be getting her life back on track, an encounter with a mysterious stranger promises her the vengeance she desires, ultimately turning the former target into the assassin.

However, as she soon learns, all choices come with consequences. And the consequence of her choice threatens to destroy the very fabric of her being.

I also posted a book trailer in this forum.

Enigma Black can be found at:http://amzn.com/B00ABVO2ZC

As a special December promotion, I will be willing to gift the book to the first three people who send me a direct message on Goodreads with their e-mail address (so I can have it sent there).

Thomas Hay (wwwthomaslhaycom) | 36 comments Hello, is it me you are looking for? "An Abduction Revelation" is my previous memoir transformed into a Sci-fi novel. But is the Sci-fi novel really Sci-fi? www.thomaslhay.com.


message 27: by Melodie (new)

Melodie Ramone (melodieramone) AFTER FOREVER ENDS is contemporary fiction. It's kind of being pigeon-holed as Contemporary Romance, but it's much more than that. A genre bender, really, it combines fictional memoir with a life-long romance and then throws in a twist of magical realism and paranormal that runs throughout the story.

Here's the official synopsis:
Orphaned by her mother and brushed off by her dad, fifteen year old Silvia Cotton has lived a lonely life. That is until her father moves the family from the Highlands of Scotland to the Midlands of Wales. It is there she is enrolled in Bennington, a private boarding school, and meets the charming and rebellious Dickinson twins, Oliver and Alexander. Her regrettable life is changed forever.

Locked into a fierce friendship with Alexander and lost to a whirlwind romance with Oliver, Silvia finds herself torn away from everything she thought she knew. Married too soon, she moves with Oliver to a rustic cabin deep in a Welsh wood and embarks upon a life she'd never planned for, surviving on hope she never knew existed and faith she never knew she had. She makes her way through university and onto a career, only to surrender her ambition to raising her children and living a life that was strikingly "normal". But what is normal? Certainly not what ensues in the wood.

True love, faeries, friendship, loves lost and gained. Old magic, fate, doubt, strength and courage, Silvia's story could belong to anyone, but it is her own. Simple yet extraordinary, told with wit and candor, Silvia recalls a life of joy and sorrow, laughter and tears. As she unravels the tangled web of her days, she reveals the secrets that exist in an ancient wood, how hearts given freely can become the stuff of magic, and how true happiness is never any further than one's own back garden.

message 28: by Galen (new)

Galen Watson | 2 comments The Psalter is a Wilbur Smith meets Umberto Eco religious thriller/ historical fiction. The modern-day thriller weaves in and out of a 9th century historical fiction until they merge at the denouement.

A medieval prayer book, a religious prophecy, and a forgery that changed the church—forever.

Father Romano has run afoul of the modern inquisitors before. This time, it leads to a medieval manuscript and murder. Was it an ordinary theft gone wrong or something more? The Carabinieri in Rome would like to know.

Michael Romano is an American priest working in the Vatican's Secret Archives with a penchant for stepping over the line. Church Inquisitors have noticed -- and they aren’t happy. Nevertheless, Romano is also the Church’s senior paleographer, an expert in ancient manuscripts, and his expertise is needed to examine a ninth-century codex known as a Psalter.

Father Romano’s examination leads him into the past as he uncovers an historical narrative of medieval forgeries, Saracen invasions and a legendary fight for the richest kingdom on earth. Yet he has unwittingly become a target for those who will stop at nothing to possess the secret of the Psalter.

“Are not all legends based on a truth? She is here. She has been born of the blood from both worlds but has been hidden from her true calling. We can feel her magic. It pushes at us from beyond the veil Priestess, and as for the assassin, his weakness is the one he is sworn to protect. They walk as one.”

Joey looked around the room. Who was she talking to? They were alone. She was crazy, more crazy than Billy. A list of horror movies raced through his mind at lightning speed; replacing his anger with an emotion he thought had died long ago, fear.
She leaned back over Joey, grasping the arms of the chair for support. He turned his face away from hers, fear filling his eyes. Tears ran down his face and soaked into the collar of his shirt. She straddled him again and turned his face towards her, stroking his cheek gently.

Larry Kollar (lkollar) | 12 comments Which one should I talk about? I have three launched, and a fourth ready to go at the end of the month.

White Pickups by Larry Kollar My first novel, White Pickups, is about surviving in the weirdest apocalypse ever. It has some great reviews so far, all 4- or 5-star. I'd recommend it for mature audiences (17+), as it does have a lot of rude language and a couple of fairly explicit sex scenes. I'm calling it "paranormal" for lack of a better genre. The conclusion, Pickups and Pestilence, is in beta and is slated for launch is late April.

Accidental Sorcerers by Larry Kollar My newest launch (yesterday!) is Accidental Sorcerers, a YA fantasy novella. An untrained boy awakens an ice dragon, lives to tell about it, and that's just the beginning. This one is OK for ages 12 and up. It doesn't pretend adolescent temptations don't exist, but the focus is on honor, love, and loyalty.

Beth Michele (bethmichelewriter) | 6 comments Hi all,

My debut New Adult novel Love Love will be released soon. Here is the synopsis, and thanks!
---------------

Gabrielle Willis is smart. She's funny. And oh yes, she's a bit klutzy.

When Gabrielle leaves sunny California bound for the energy of Manhattan, she was willingly leaving the life she had known, for the new life she would create. But was she really leaving something behind, or was she running away.

On the outside Gabrielle Willis has it all under control. A new life in Manhattan, a great roommate, and a good job. But she was haunted. Haunted by a a memory she's tried to forget, and by a family who's abandoned her. But what happens when what's on the outside is only an illusion, and in perfect contradiction to what's buried deep within.

Enter Dane Rhodes. He's gorgeous, smart, and sexy as hell. Just what Gabby wants, or so she thinks. But when she meets Brad Dixon, the sweet guy with the crooked smile, he begins to make her see that the very thing she is trying to run from, is the very thing that just may push her to see the light.
