Shawn Seward | 1 comments Frank Made Lunch

Summary
Blood lust builds in Frank’s heart. His stomach begs for human flesh. On the days leading up to Halloween, Frank’s already questionable sanity deteriorates. He spends his nights working at the local haunted house called Terror Mansion. This only serves to aggravate his fragile sanity and fuel his murderous behavior. The question is not whether Frank will kill and eat, but how many will be killed before he is stopped.
Laura is a college student and works at a local hamburger shop. A new relationship leads to conflict with an unwanted admirer. She thought he was the worst there was until Frank gave her free tickets to Terror Mansion, for her and her friends. This is a Halloween the city will never forget. This is the Halloween of Frank’s ascension.

J. Bailey (jleighbailey) | 1 comments I'm giving away 5 digital copies (in epub, mobi, or pdf) of my September 15 release of my LGBT YA romance/adventure book DO-GOODER (200 pages) in exchange for honest reviews. It would be awesome if reviews could be posted the week of the 15th, but not required.

Here's the blurb:

No good deed goes unpunished, and for seventeen-year-old Isaiah Martin, that’s certainly the case. The gun he was caught with wasn’t even his, for God’s sake. He only had it to keep a friend from doing something stupid. No one wants to hear it though, and Isaiah is banished—or so it seems to him—to live with his missionary father in politically conflicted Cameroon, Africa.
However, when he arrives, his father is so busy doing his good deeds that he sends Henry, the young, surprisingly hot do-gooder with a mysterious past, to pick up Isaiah and keep him out of trouble. Even while Isaiah is counting down the days until he can go home, he and Henry get caught in the political unrest of the region. Kidnapped by militant forces, the two have to work together to survive until they are rescued—unless they manage to find a way to save each other first.

PM me if you are interested. Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone,

I'm Lisa J. Skye, the author of Timecrest. I've been writing YA stories for a long time, but Timecrest is my first interactive story. Writing an interactive book wasn't always how I wanted to tell a story, but the more I learned about the medium, the more that I wrote for it, the more I grew to love it.

Believe me, there are still times when I'm greatly challenged by the limits I face in writing an interactive story, but those times are few and far in between the good times.

I hope you give Timecrest a try, because it's not only my story, it's yours.

Her life seems hopeless, until she stumbles upon a mysterious cave near her home. What she learns from the cave's extraordinary inhabitants will change her perspective–and her life–forever.

Tony Duxbury | 3 comments REDHAND: A post-apocalyptic sword fantasy. Five short stories featuring the same protagonist.
It is the new age of barbarism, hundreds of years after the collapse of civilization. Most of the vast knowledge that mankind had accumulated has been lost. The once great cities are either piles of blasted rubble or crumbling ruins. After society imploded, humanity turned on one another. Decades of war followed. The survivors banded together in tribes and clans. All the bullets and bombs have run out. It’s back to edged weapons and blunt instruments. Technology has taken an enormous step backwards, and so has humanity.
He belongs to a band of wanderers, mainly peaceful people who gather and hunt. One day they suffer a raid by a group of warriors and in the aftermath, he finds himself alone. All his family and friends killed, and he left for dead. The only survivor was his little sister, which the raiders kidnapped. He vows to rescue her. After a night of mourning, he sets off to get back his sister, not yet a man and without any idea how to go about it. The shock of the raid and the grief that followed it fundamentally changed him. He surprises himself time and again as he tracks down his sister’s kidnappers and gets her back.

Patrick Jean-Jacques (patrickjean-jacques) | 2 comments Promethean Shadows by Patrick Jean-Jacques

When Will picks up an old photograph, he stumbles upon a dubious connection between past global disasters and the Promethean organisation. As Will starts to dig deeper, he unravels a plot, which began in his past and will end in his present. Faced with danger on multiple fronts and surprising allies, Will must stop a threat to the nation that becomes both perilous and personal…

PROMETHEAN SHADOWS is a contemporary thriller about Will Cox, an aspiring journalism student whose investigative research unwittingly makes him a target of the mysterious Promethean organisation and the British government. As the elusive and calculating leader of the Prometheans draws closer to him, Will becomes more determined to uncover a web of intrigue and lies that began in his childhood. As events from the past threaten his future, Will must try to prevent two catastrophic events that threaten to send Britain into the dark ages.

For any new (an old) author, the proof of the writing is in the reading. So, I'd be extremely grateful for all your reviews, particularly regarding characterization, pace and style of the story. I hope you enjoy the first in the Promethean Saga...

Thanks everyone!!

Hannah Sandoval | 2 comments Hi, everybody. Happy to have found this group. As a professional ghostwriter and editor operating under my own business, PurpleInkPen, I’ve worked on over two dozen novels in varying capacities. My own YA fantasy novel, Arcamira, is set for release in March 2020 from the hybrid publisher Cosmic Egg Books. It’s a fantasy-paranormal crossover wherein classic high fantasy species like elves, fairies, and griffins face off with paranormal monsters like vampires and werewolves. It’s made for readers seeking cinematic action sequences and fast-paced plots that are family and friendship driven, not romance reliant. I’d love to swap books with a fellow YA fantasy or paranormal author.
Arcamira Description: When the elf princess, Atalanta, is snatched from her palace and a vampire crashes a ball at the castle, all of Arcamira is on high alert.

To uphold their alliance with the elves and to satisfy their desire for adventure, four young royals set out with a search party to find Atalanta. The small band of warriors quickly find themselves facing down a monster, unlike anything they've ever seen. The vampires and werewolves they believed extinct are rising up under the banner of Tyrannus, a hybrid of two fearsome species forming an army to rid Arcamira of humans and elves...

An act of war. A hybrid king. Adventure awaits, and Arcamira hangs in the balance.
