Craig Furchtenicht | 87 comments Count me in. Here is my link to ebook. It is also available in paperback on Amazon. Dimebag Bandits is a crime/drama with plenty of action. Not for the faint of heart.

Lucia Amsden | 2 comments Thanks for starting a site to help us get the word out on our books. Count me in also! " My Book, "Breaking Eggs: Finding New Meaning with Chronic illness", was just declared the winner among books on health in the New Mexico/Arizona 2013 New Book Awards Contest!

Breaking Eggs is a guide for those grappling with chronic illness, inspired by my years as a practicing therapist living with arthritis.

It's available on Amazon as a paperback and on Kindle.

Alex, not to discourage you, but if you are planning to promote other books on your website, you may want to check the grammar in your invitation.

Adrienne LaCava | 2 comments No One Can Know "A riveting historical thriller…featuring brisk pacing and engaging characters." ~Kirkus Reviews
In1964 Texas, a plucky twelve-year-old and a CIA operative on the lam become unlikely allies when a weekend at the ranch turns deadly. Reader G says, "This is a must read."

What would you do if you knew you only had days to live?


Would you freak out? Would you waste it in self-pity, resentment, or denial? Or would you go and pursue everything you've ever wanted to do?


Nearly a decade had passed since Nathan stood inside someone's home, since that terrible September morning when he lost everything he ever loved.


Outside, a hurricane sounded like it was beating palm trees against the siding. Nathan didn't know the sickly woman who'd rescued him from the throes of the epic storm. Her name is Miriam and she is about to change everything he ever thought about the meaning of life and what lies beyond.


Nathan discovers the strength of love can piece his shattered world back together and heal wounds that cut deep into his soul. With the clock ticking toward the end of Miriam's life, he never figured the perils he and this dying woman were about to face by knowing the most horrible knowledge one can know.


Read what Kindle Nation Daily called "the sleeper hit of the year" what Kindle Fire Department called, "riveting, touching, and deeply heartwarming, a book that will stay with you forever"; an Indie Book of the Day winner in 2012.


It will affect you!

Michael Stephenson | 7 comments Hello, Alex.

I was wondering what kind of site this would be? what audience are you going for? What type of books are you interested in promoting? How do you intend on drawing viewers and readers to the website? Do you already have a blog or something where you have an internet presence a group of people following you or will this be something completely new from scratch? And what will this 7 dollars get you on the site: a front and center promotion or just a permanent listing in the sites catalog? I would love to submit any number of my books especially my book A Negotiation of Wounds (Negotiation Series, #1, but would like to have more infor also. Thanks.

The good news is I have another idea that may help everyone that is interested, I want to promote everyone's books on YouTube but I will have to charge a small fee of $5 for site upkeep.

Saurabhdey | 2 comments Hi Alex,
I've written a story which I believe leaves a big question on the way society exists today. The rules of the world have been changed in this fantasy world, where a regular art school student strives to get out of the taboos of the society. This society is absolutely okay about sex and related topics even if religiously considered but considers something else a taboo.

Please consider reading my my story, I think you would like it. Any comments will also be valuable.

I have written a chapter book for children aged 6-11
called The Floor. It is about a classroom floor that comes alive in the evening to help a young boy overcome bullying at school. It incorporates a very cheeky floor and many humorous moments that not only make it a good read, but also provide support, laughter,ideas and hope for those who are being bullied at school.

It is now available as a Print and a Kindle Edition.

Michael Stephenson | 7 comments I would like to be on your site. My name is Michael Stephenson and my book is A Negotiation of Wounds (Negotiation Series, #1. It is sold on Amazon Kindle.

In the same vein as TV shows like Scandal, The Good Wife, and House of Cards, A Negotiation of Wounds delves into the world of high-stakes divorce where sex and punishment are all part of the game as battle lines are drawn between Amanda Matthews and Reed Matthews in the war of public perception.

A sexy, visceral, fast-paced ride through an oft-overlooked subject in fiction (one that many of us encounter at some point in life), A Negotiation of Wounds takes the reader on an emotional ride through deception and romance as one couple seeks to severe the ties that bind.

I would love it if you all took a look at my book. Thank you.

Cinda MacKinnon | 21 comments Hi Alex-
How can I resist? I hope you will consider adding A PLACE IN THE WORLD, a multicultural-literary novel. Please see reviews and a sample at: http://amzn.to/19wSFfX

"When her Colombian husband deserts her on his family's coffee farm in a remote part of the Andes, Alicia struggles to make a life there for herself and her son even as a nearby volcano rumbles to life. This passionate story, about a young biologist and a multinational cast of characters, is like a South American Out of Africa in the final decades of 1900’s."

Randy Charles (randycharles) | 8 comments Hi, Alex,

Not sure if you are including short stories but I just recently published Three Times A Lady: A Short Psychological Thriller (approx. 9,000 words).

"Emma Burns is a stay-at-home-mom and writer who spends her days playing catch-up. Catching up on the writing that she never seems to get done, rushing to not always be the last mom to pick her kids up from school each day. While Emma may be flying through life by the seat of her pants, she has it under control. She can handle it. But after two seemingly unconnected encounters with strangers, she starts to doubt her ability to handle anything. She doubts herself.

‘I don’t know. I honestly don’t know what happened yesterday!’ Emma told her husband only a half-truth. The whole truth is that she doesn’t know exactly what happened the day before, but she has an idea. The whole truth is troubling: Emma has been missing time. Picture coming to, hours—or days—later, and not remembering a single second of your life in that gap. Where did you go? What did you do?

Like those precious minutes on the clock, Emma is losing it. And, once she figures out what happened, she discovers that she has lost much, much more than time."

Please do consider this work I would truly appreciate it!

Please consider my book for your website: The Kings of Cantium: Book One. It's book one of a 4-part series of novellas.

In the Iron Age, the world is changing.
At night, Isa Uliac lays down her scythe and dances by the fire, her reward for long hours in the fields. The land of June never changes - until the Remi come.

These strangers solve problems that should have taken years to unravel. Soon they build roads through the fields and demand tribute. The people of June no longer dance and sing. When the Remi nearly kill Isa's brother, she knows that she must act.

She sets off for Cantium, an old ally of June that no one has visited for generations. Only this legendary kingdom could defeat the Remi. But Cantium isn't what Isa expected. Can she overcome her horror at what she finds there and convince the Cantians to help June, before it's too late?

I can send you a .pdf file if interested but it will also be free on Amazon Dec. 13-15 and Dec. 27-28.

Thank you!

Maria Bradley (mariakb) | 7 comments Hi there,
thanks so much for creating a new website for us. If I am too late for the first 50 I will be happy to pay the $7. My books are Only Human and the second book in the series The Blood Wars-Crystal Secret. The second book will be out next week. Here are the blurbs and links:
Only Human Only Human The First One by Maria Bradley
Aecia is a deformity; a curious case of two members of the same species producing another one. Her disability is merely the fact that she is human in an all vampire society. Her life is a macabre theatre production with her as the leading lady. With no friends, she carries this burden alone, until her desperate loneliness creates ‘Amica’ a blonde, blue-eyed and carefree human friend whom she writes to in her diary. When she becomes involved with a real friend ‘Garok’ her life takes a disastrous turn for the worst, but as her terrifying fears are realised she discovers that maybe she is not alone, and as each calamitous morsel of her life explodes into chaos, she finds that her own birth has been the catalyst to events that will shake the foundations of the tyrannous vampire world forever!
The Blood Wars-Crystal Secret (Only Human#2)
The Blood Wars-Crystal Secret (Only Human, #2) by Maria Bradley
Aecia has enjoyed her freedom as a human for only a few short months when her uncle Kasen goes missing! Fearing the worst, she embarks on yet another dangerous quest with her family and friends, and they are hurtled into a conflict which will become as historic as The Great War, in which the bloodthirsty vamps were the absolute victors.

These are the first battles of The Blood Wars, and the secrets they uncover will terrify Aecia's soul, and plunge her into an age of confusion, life-threatening danger, and quivering doubts about the one truth she holds as sacred inside her heart; the fact that she is human?

The Dark Proposal (The End of Eternity #1) by Megan Cashman

Claire McCormick has graduated from college and is eager for her new life to begin. She thought it would happen when she began dating Daniel Bertrand, who was everything she wanted in a boyfriend. But just as her dreams are about to come true, Claire’s life is turned upside down when Daniel reveals to be a bloodthirsty vampire, with the intent on making her his eternal companion. No matter how much Claire tries to rid herself of him, Daniel is too evil to defeat. She has to come to terms with reality, as she faces a vampire world fighting to survive in modern times, with many of them unaware of how devious Daniel can be.

The Dark Proposal is the first book in a trilogy that follows what becomes of Claire and the vampires.
