Andrea Randall (andrea_d_randall) | 1 comments Hello. I'm a inspiring writer. I have a million book ideas that I associate with my over active imagination and my own weight of otherwise useless knowledge. However, my passion for reading has limited my ability to decide on a genre. Thank you for allowing me in the group. Perhaps, I can rope two or three of my stories into at least one category.

I'm an everywoman, author, artist, reader, blogger, and... anything else when I can find the time. Because apparently I love torturing myself. Why? I don't know.

Alex Morritt (alexmorritt) | 1 comments Hi, I'm Alex, This looks like an interesting group. I have recently published a fictional short story collection Impromptu Scribe which is available as a Kindle edition from Amazon sites worldwide. This is quite a departure from my previous two works which are more in the realm of poetry & photography travelogues: Glimpses of Guatemala (2012) and Guises of Guyana (2013). I look forward to participating and meeting more of you. Thanks.


message 26: by Raquel (new)

Raquel (rockiealv) | 2 comments Hello Everyone! My name is Raquel and I am an avid reader, a new author, and a ridiculously inexperienced onliner (I'm sure that's a word...).

I've discovered that I love bringing my random thoughts and dreams to life but am less keen on the technical aspects involved: marketing, formatting, art, and did I mention marketing? This hermit is going to have to learn to stick her neck out of her shell and sell herself! Ha ha

Anywho, I'm excited to be here, especially since I may have found my next read (thank you, Lucian).

Alexandra Engellmann (engellmann) | 5 comments Hi everyone! I'm Alex, author/reader/blogger. I'm Russian, but I'm such a huge fan of English that I can't remember the last time I read a book in Russian. I write urban fantasy/action, and my first book "Sky Ghosts: All for One" is published on Amazon Kindle. Besides, sometimes I write short stories about pretty much anything, you can find them in my tumblr blog http://engellmann.tumblr.com/
I'm new to GR, but already in love with this group and hope to find new amazing friends here :)

message 37: by Dara (new)

Dara Yu | 2 comments Hi, I'm Dara. I'm a reader, blogger and an aspiring author. I already started my first novel but I can't seem to finish it. I have all kinds of stories in my head but putting them into words can be hard, considering English is my second language. And writing my stories in my native tongue can sound pretty tacky on my part, so it's not an option for me. But it's great to be here in GR as I get to meet lots of like-minded bookworms. :)

message 39: by Anthony (new)

Anthony O'Brian | 2 comments Hello,

Great to stumble on this group! I am first a READER, second a WRITER, third an AUTHOR, and fourth a BLOGGER. (You don't want to know all the other hats I wear!)

Interestingly enough, I am prepared for release of another in the Summer Days series and will be making the first title free for a limited time when that date rolls around.

I suppose that means this group will be among the first to hear it. We just finished three book giveaways and I wish that I would have known about everyone here and I would have posted for you to check it out.

Thanks and good to be here!

~Anthony O'Brian


message 40: by Ellie (new)

Ellie Crowe (ellie2) | 2 comments Letting Evil InHi there. I'm an author and a reader. Great to read your posts and to join this group. I was inspired to try some more PR this morning when I read this great review for my book from SuziQ:
*****Chilling abduction, drugs, cheating husband, sexy Brazilian Federal Agent, January 11, 2015
By SuziQ - See all my reviews
This review is from: Letting Evil In (Kindle Edition)

LETTING EVIL IN by Ellie Eden 5 *'s

I was only going to read for half an hour when I opened this romantic suspense book.....could not put the book down! It was a fast paced adventure with a cheating husband, savvy teen son, desperate young lover, drug lords, sexy agent, and a heroine that drove me nuts. Set in the tropical paradise of Copacabana Beach outside of Rio, Brazil, a wronged woman searches for her missing husband. Kristi does not want to believe her man is a cheater, a fact that made me want to shake her. The plot races, twisting and turning, to a hopeful/happy ending. Great book--don't miss it.

Hi Stephany - my latest book Letting Evil In is set in Brazil. I'd love to set a book in Columbia - I will have to visit it first though. Nice to know there are passionate readers there!Letting Evil In
