Rustin Petrae (rustinpetrae) | 50 comments Hello everyone. My name is Rustin Petrae and I am hoping to find some reviewers for my anthology, Forfeit (which is a collection of 8 short stories). Each reviewer will receive a Smashwords coupon to get the book from. Here's a little more info on my anthology.

Forfeit is an anthology that features eight original short stories from author Rustin Petrae (Histories of Purga Novels & The Bane Pack Novels). The theme of this collection is the word forfeit. In each story, a character is has to forfeit something important to them. Their minds. Their ideals. Their innocence. Their lives. Sometimes they are forced to give up them up. Sometimes, they do so willingly.

The Phoenix's Gift: A man is forced to watch as his daughter lays in a hospital bed, dying. But then a stranger comes along and offers a gift.
The Chained Man: The fate of a man just trying to live his life seems like chains that he can’t escape.
The Lonely Death: With no memory, no name, no history, no anything, the only thing that a man can cling to is the job he’s called to do.
Watching From Afar: Ripped from his life, a man is turned into a rampaging monster against his will. Now, he has to fight what was done to him so he can regain his humanity.
The Tunnel: A woman suddenly finds herself stuck in a tunnel with no seeming end to it. With nothing to do but press on, she walks forward.
Burn Zone: Two detectives must unravel the mysterious fires plaguing their city before more people get hurt. For a guy that can see ghosts and another that can semi-read minds, you think it wouldn't be that hard.
Cat's Paw: The past and present merge in this supernatural thriller where a young boy has to confront the harsh and terrifying reality that a murderer is killing kids in his neighborhood.
White Rose: An agoraphobic braves the outside world on a bus full of strangers but it's not long before they start. The death songs. Soon after, there's a wreck and the death songs end...along with the lives of those making them. They all die...except one. Now he has to find out why. Why this girl? Why did she survive when no one else does after their song ends?

I would like to thank everyone that signs up. I really appreciate it.

Sue Foster (brownie27) | 4 comments Hello

I would love to review as the style of the stories seems right up my street. However I haven’t heard of Smashwords. I’m in the UK so not sure if it is used elsewhere in the world.

Anyway, best of luck to you

Rustin Petrae (rustinpetrae) | 50 comments Hi Sue. I would love to have you review my stories. Would a .pdf version work for you?

Sue Foster (brownie27) | 4 comments Hi Rustin

Many thanks for your response.

I think a pdf would be an problem for me 🙁. Not sure I have a device which would allow me to read it

Kind regards

Rustin Petrae (rustinpetrae) | 50 comments Hi Sue. Do you use a smartphone, tablet, or something similar? If so, a .pdf file should be viewable. You just have to make sure you have a .pdf reader app.

Allen Bagby (allengbagby) | 6 comments What is the total word count? Are you able to provide it in a Kindle format?

Rustin Petrae (rustinpetrae) | 50 comments Thank you Sue. What email address do you want me to send that to?

Hi Allen. The total word count is 74,110 and I can provide you with a Smashwords coupon where you can download a .mobi (Kindle) version for free. If you would like that, let me know and I will provide the code as soon as the book is live. Right now it is still in review.
