  8. I ask three questions when looking over a romance novel. Are there sharks? Is there revenge done deviously by a dwarf? And finally, is there ice cream to mix with all of that love?
    If you have ever asked these questions without the proper responses, I promise, at long last you have found it in "My Novel Affair."

  11. Fans of Stephen King, Jack Kilborn, and Blake Crouch… prepare to meet the Devil.

    In the vine-twisted swamps of Louisiana, the shadows have teeth.

    Jack Winter has spent his entire life running from something no one else can see. His childhood is his darkest secret, but after a near fatal accident along a deserted road, the darkness he was sure he’d escaped rears its ugly head… and smiles.

    But this time, he isn’t the only one who sees the soulless eyes of his past. This time, his six-year-old daughter Charlie leans into his ear and whispers: "Daddy, I saw it too."And then she begins to change.Faced with reliving the nightmares of his childhood, Jack watches his daughter spiral into the shadows that had nearly consumed him twenty years before. But Charlie isn’t the only one who’s changing. Jack never outran the darkness. It’s been with him all along. And it’s hungrier than ever.

    A new breed of dark fiction: the subtlety of Seed will haunt you, and the end will wickedly satisfy.

  12. "The Commander and the Den Asaan Rautu", book 1 in the Haanta Series.

    The Kingdom of Frewyn is being invaded by the Galleisian infantry and at the forefront of the battle is Boudicca MacDaede, a First Captain in the Frewyn armed forces. Her regiment is charged with defending the borders between the two nations, but when Frewyn’s last line of defense falls, Captain MacDaede enlists the assistance of a Haanta, one of giants from the islands to the far north. Promising to free him from his imprisonment in exchange for his help, she gains his trust long enough for them to win the battle and save the Frewyn border from being breached. The giant’s freedom is granted, but Rautu cannot return home unless he redeems himself in the eyes of his people for past his transgressions. He is offered a place by the captain’s side, and together, they defeat the Galleisian forces and become the saviors of Frewyn.


    One year later, King Alasdair Brennin takes the Frewyn throne, Boudicca is made commander, Gallei and Frewyn reach an accord, and Rautu is granted an invitation home. He is eager to return and see his brothers but finds it difficult to leave Frewyn without Boudicca at his side. He has become accustomed to her company and the idea of being made to live without her begins to distress him. Rautu invites the commander to the islands in hopes of finding a way for them to remain together, but when they arrive at the white shores of Sanhedhran, not everything goes as planned: one of the dangerous Haanta magi is freed, Rautu’s three brothers are strangely missing, and the neighboring nation of Thellis leads an attack on the islands.


    Together, the commander and the Den Asaan Rautu must find a way to unite their two nations and defend against the Thellisian fleets, but can they do so successfully when an envious Frewyn king, an impending war with Thellis, and a cruel Haanta military leader would keep them apart?

  13. I'd love a plug Sirra...my newest book, Take This Regret, was just released on 07/28/2011.

    There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives. For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth.

    Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child.

    After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life.

    For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.

    When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they’ve committed the unforgiveable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate. Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal?

    They say everyone deserves a second chance.

  16. Secret Storm: contemporary romance

    "I want to let you in, Jack, but I.... Oh hell, I just want you. I know you're not what I need, but I don't care. Take me to bed now and we'll sort the rest out later."

    The last thing Sara Jensen needs is another risky relationship. She wants Jack, but she's been hurt too many times to trust him even though he's more than a friend. Jack won't trust her, and that hurts more than her ex's betrayal.


    Jack Wheeler wants Sara. His long denied lust burns barely contained. But a dangerous secret comes back to haunt him, a secret so horrible he can't trust anyone with it, not even the woman he desires more than anything.

    For the first time since they met, they're both available, but the timing couldn't be worse. Sara's not too eager to trust a man again, and Jack refuses to reveal his secret. Getting involved now is complicated, but Sara and Jack have waited long enough. Neither one of them can control their desires. But there's a storm approaching, and as hard as she tries, Sara can't run away from Jack's past. Jack won't accept her help, and Sara doesn't know how long she can wait for him to realize he needs her.

  18. Would love for you to check out my book: Nate Rocks the World:

    Nate Rocks can do it all: part super-hero, part all-star athlete, part rock-star… part fourth-grader?

    Ten-year-old Nathan Rockledge cannot catch a break. After all, life as a fourth-grader can be hazardous what with science projects to deal with and recess football games to avoid. Everyone, including his best friend Tommy, seems to have bad luck when hanging around Nathan. Throw in an older sister who is a royal pain, a dad who is stuck in the past, and a mom who keeps trying to poison him with her awful cooking, and poor Nathan’s life as a fourth grader appears to be completely doomed.

    Armed only with his sketchpad, his imagination, and his wits, Nathan Rockledge navigates the perils of the fourth grade in style, to emerge heroic, as Nate Rocks, proving that even a ten-year-old can accomplish great things.

    Not all is lost however. Give Nathan a sketchpad and a pencil and watch as his drawings transform his otherwise hopeless life into heroic adventures as Nate Rocks. Time and again, Nate saves the day – winning The World Series, fighting evil forces to keep the world from darkness and even saving Christmas. When his sister nearly drowns while swimming in the ocean, Nate Rocks the World one more time, proving that even a ten year old can accomplish great things.

    Follow the quirky and imaginative adventures of ten-year-old Nathan Rockledge as his cartoons come to life.

  23. Hi Sirra,

    I can see that you have had lots of requests, so completely understand if I am too late! Just in case though, my Young Adult novel is Kit-in-the-Candlestick.

She tries the door handle and tumbles inside, only to find herself banished to the strange and inhospitable land of Lethe.

    Pursued by hidden enemies, and in a desperate race against time, she attempts to discover the whereabouts of a missing girl and unlock the magic within her amethyst necklace. On her journey, she meets Tom, a boy as lost as she is, and together they try and find their way home.

    Kit-in-the-Candlestick is a fantasy novel for older children and young adults with magic, mystery and romance.

  24. The Hambledown Dream.

    http://www.deanfromaustralia.com

    http://http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035FZLL0

    Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya - the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer.

    Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction; all while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago.

    As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams - memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he's never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he's never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown.

    Hoping you might find a spot for me in the future. :)

    The first chapter and a reading guide can be downloaded from my website: browsingrhino

    Secrets From The Dust at Amazon

    @BrowsingRhino

    Set in Australia between the 1960s and early 1970s, this historical saga follows Margaret, an Aboriginal girl who is snatched from her family and brought up by white foster parents in the outback, under the government sponsored assimilation policies. She stubbornly tries to maintain her culture until she can escape or her real parents find her, but then she discovers that she is growing to like many of the customs and material possessions of her captors, producing a crisis of cultural identity. By the time she grows into a beautiful young woman and moves to Sydney to study nursing, she has already suffered the disappointments of unrequited love and the forbidden desire for her foster father. She tries to hide behind the identity of a Southern European, but the highly charged political environment of Sydney and her love for a political activist forces her to confront her true identity.

  37. Thank you for the opportunity to share my novel with you.

    Tasha loves Jamie. Jamie loves Helen, his wife. In fact he absolutely adores her. He loves his daughter, Beth, too.
    Well, a girl can look, can't she?
    When Helen dies in a car crash, the question arises again: can she look now?
    Jamie is consumed by grief. This is a delicate situation. Jamie is in torment. If Helen was a saint in Jamie's eyes before, she is so much more now.
    Maybe Tasha should go for Darren instead.


    New Beginnings is now available from Amazon (ebook & paperback)

    Summary:
    Natasha Arden loves music, food, sex, clothes (not necessarily in that order) and her boss. Will she find heartache or happiness?

    Six months ago, Tasha lived with her Mum and thought she was in love with boyfriend Gavin. When her Mum became too ill to live at home, Tasha moved into a rented flat and started a new job. Now, having struggled to move on after an acrimonious break-up, Tasha starts the New Year with a new blog and a long list of plans. She has good friends, a great social life, and plenty of plans.

    Working for a children’s charity which provides short-term accommodation for teenagers with family difficulties, Tasha loves her job. Settling back into single life, and looking forward to the future, she's foot-loose and fancy-free with no problems ... except for the huge crush she has on her boss. Unable to tell anyone because he's married, Tasha pours her heart out in the only way she can - in her blog.
    Tragedy heralds a series of new beginnings ... and some unexpected endings.

    …..Twenty-two years ago, when I was twenty-seven, I gave birth to a baby girl……..

    Thus begins this touching, heartwarming, oft times humorous, and true series of vignettes of life in the trenches raising a spitfire baby girl with Down Syndrome. This thin volume is filled with inspirational quotes, beautiful photographs, and an overall message of the joy of life.

    While each section is a complete tale within itself, Treading Lightly: Reflections of Steps Along The Path, follows the steps of “Our Girl’s” transformation from birth through the years of “her college”.

    Leaving the reader as “Our Girl” steps teetering upon the threshold of the adult world. Confronting it as a young woman: bright, intelligent, fun loving and eager to learn. Facing her future with hope, a bit of fear, and the neverending love of her parents, brothers, and family.

    Tales to be cherished, pondered; read and re read. Take them to your heart, and remember: “A society is judged by how it treats its most helpless members: the very old, the very young, and the handicapped”.

    Share the wealth. And pass the message along.

  40. Su, as per our discussion on twitter, here's the link to my book, A to Z Stories of Life and Death.

    It is available on Amazon, Smashwords and Nook.

    Blurb:

    Twenty-six A to Z stories, based on the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, question our moral compass: How do you judge a teacher toying with the sexuality of her teenaged student? A boy who decides to murder his mother? What thoughts rage inside a pedophile serial killer before he shoots himself? They challenge the concepts of beauty, truth, and morality, by revealing the face of the other side.

    The stories focus on a crucial juncture when a character's life changes, for the better or worse, because of a choice or decision. Some of the characters in the stories confront death, others talk about life with its quirks and whimsies. Each voice, ranging in age from a six-year-old to a centenarian, has its own riveting story to tell. Together, this collection of stories at over 12000 words attempts to prove that when it comes to stories, depth can sometimes replace length and breadth.
    --------------------

    Hope to improve my next work based on any off-the-cuff suggestions you might have :)

  42. Hi Sirra,

    I loved your blog on the ugly side of Indie publishing. I would appreciate your time and consideration reviewing my book, "The Leaf Catcher." I am almost certain you haven't read anything like it before. It is an epic poem like Dante's Inferno, but written in a way that is more accessible to the modern English reader. It takes place in a late 16th century European village where a humble village gardener will teach his son, and the reader, the most important values in life as he endures great suffering under the rule of the prince of the land.

  43. Hi, Sirra! Nice of you to do this -- if you'd ever like a freebie coupon at Smashwords for a free download of any of my books, holler. I write about Trevor Wolff, bass player for the band ShapeShifter. He is larger-than-life, so large that it's taken four books (and counting!) to hold him.

    Here's the link to my books page: http://westofmars.com/west-of-mars/the-books

  44. Sounds good to me.

    KAT AND MOUSE, GUNS FOR HIRE. When mercenaries Kat and Mouse sign on a series of seemingly easy jobs, they suddenly find themselves targeted by a biker gang, a team of corporate commandos, a cybernetically-enhanced special ops agent, a stalker, a band of kidnappers, and a Japanese crime syndicate. Now these sassy sisters-in-arms must survive the onslaught and still get the jobs done.

    The entire first season of the cyberpunk pulp adventure web serial is now availabe in a "boxed set" for Kindle (http://amzn.to/j2ETRE) or Nook/epub (http://bit.ly/pyh1Xq)

    My story, The Aristotelian is available on Amazon and also on Smashwords. A teenaged Sherlock Holmes investigates his mother's murder while his brother Mycroft unsuccessfully tries to keep him out of trouble. Will a locked-room murder be too much for an inexperienced Sherlock Holmes?

  49. Ninja Kitty, thanks for such a wonderful blog! I appreciate the balance of idealism and realism throughout. I hope you (and other readers) will enjoy this opening novella in The Zombie Bible:

    DEATH HAS COME UP INTO OUR WINDOWS

    595 BC – Jeremiah 38. God is weeping behind her veil in the Temple while the dead are eating her city alive, and her words are coming out through the mouth of her prophet Yirmiyahu. Trapped in a dry well while his gaolers toss zombies in after him, the prophet will have to fight to survive the hungry dead, dehydration, and some truly wrenching memories -- memories of atrocities witnessed, lives lost, and sacrifices made that shatter the heart.

    This is the first installment of The Zombie Bible, a series that gazes, unflinching, at human history and religion's many encounters with the dead. Read this story. It has teeth. And heart.

  50. Em sits at her desk, her hands soaked in blood. No wounds, no pain, and no idea where the blood came from. The reds and greens swirling across her computer screen scream jungle battle. She’s certain she was there. Fighting through the jungle to stop a battle, storming into a courtroom to save the accused, facing a firing squad of armed ruffians…
    Are her “three wishes” coming true?

    And, Yves? He is there to arm her with special powers, to send her into battle, to watch over her. His first assignment as a supreme power is to clean up the mess on Earth without going down there himself. Meeting his superior’s expectations is a huge challenge. Falling in love with Em threatens to ruin everything.

  53. Looking for someone interested in reviewing. Been out as self published and has been accepted to a publisher and waiting for contract.

    “What are wisdom and intelligence” chronicles the life of an average American’s struggle through a society eclipsed by a man made distortion of true reality. This 430 page book shows people the everyday roller coaster of an average Jim in 65 chapters peppered with the morals, ethics and coping skills learned through life experiences. Written for my children, this book has an intense feel of introspect; and by reading this material, it will take you back to a lot of your own memories and give YOU back to the basics of YOU.

    Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Fred Bubbers

    Three stories about two neighbors who meet as young children and grow up together on Long Island during the late 60′s and early 70′s. The comforting and loving world they live in changes around them as their families fracture, society descends into chaos, and a war rages on. In the aftermath, they left on a wrecked, smoking landscape, searching for a new way to live when all of the sign have been burned down.

    Reviews:

    “These three separate stories about neighbors Johnny and Miriam growing up in the 1960s and 70s make for a moving and elegant novella. I very much enjoyed the directness and strength of the prose which has its own bleak beauty, and the push and pull of relationships and family was very well portrayed indeed. The ending is perfect too. Highly recommended.” *****

    -Anne Brooke (Amazon)

    “This collection has two lovely tales of growing up in Port Jefferson, New York, plus a remarkable story of complicated love — sexual and familial — amid scenes of poverty and emotional desolation. Bubbers has a fine, almost photographic sense of place and time, and a great talent at capturing the texture of life. The final story which gives its name to this collection, “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” ranks with some of the best short fiction written today.” *****

  59. Hi all!

    I'm Jeff Shanley, author of MATHION: BOOK ONE OF THE MAVONDURI TRILOGY, a YA epic fantasy novel. My book is available on the Kindle and Nook, and all associated iPhone/Android apps for just $0.99 cents! Below are the links to Mathion from both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as a synopsis.

    You can follow my blog at http://www.mavonduri-trilogy.blogspot.com or follow me on Twitter @Mavonduri.

    Enjoy!

    Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Mathion-Book-Mavonduri-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B004NIFH8A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326933367&sr=8-1

    Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/mathion-jeff-shanley/1029480467?ean=2940011986383&itm=1&usri=mathion

    Synopsis:

    In an ancient time long lost to legend, a race of men known as the Wolven inhabited the land of Ánovén. To the north lay the land of Kânavad, home to a brutal, savage race we know today as Werewolves.

    At the age of seven, the Wolven prince Mathion encountered a dying White Wolf, and received two gifts that would forever change not only his life, but the course of history itself. Centuries later, with a White Wolf at his side, Mathion gathers together a small band of warriors, consisting of both friends and family. Their mission: help the city of Kihar east of the river defend itself against an advancing army of werewolves.
    Along the way, Mathion learns of a secret that he has carried with him all his life, and a power that can change the tide of a war that has raged between the Wolven and the Werewolves for over twenty thousand years. Little does he know that his enemy is well aware of this secret. And they will do anything to obtain the final piece of a puzzle that, if completed, could condemn the world to eternal darkness.
    When someone close to him is captured alive by the enemy, Mathion attempts the impossible: to venture into the enemy's homeland itself, and infiltrate the Black City, the stronghold of Lord Azgharáth, the oldest and strongest of the werewolves. With this choice, events are set in motion that will hurtle these lands toward a final confrontation, and an epic journey is begun that will change everyone's lives forever.

    What some people are saying....

    From Barnes & Noble.com:
    "Mathion is an adventure and a half! The author has pulled off the incredible..."

    Glenn G. Thater, author of THE HARBINGER OF DOOM series, on Amazon.com:
    "No werewolf fan should miss this one!"

    Nick Gono, Goodreads.com:
    "If the first book is anything to go on, the Mavonduri trilogy is shaping up to be a great read and a fantastic series."

    kingofclowns, Smashwords.com:
    "A fluent epic with an outstanding mythology combined with traditional well thought story telling."

  62. I've got a fun Regency-set paranormal romance you might enjoy call Magic In The Storm (by Meredith Bond).

    Morgan Vallentyne is trapped. A direct descendent of Morgan le Fey, he knows he is destined for greatness — but cannot access the magical abilities that should be his. When he learns that he has only one month to achieve his full powers, he begins to lose hope. But after a violent storm throws a beautiful girl into his path, the magic begins.
    Adriana Hayden is desperate to be free. Born to paint the natural world with unprecedented passion and vision, she is fenced in by the conventions of 19th century English society. But after meeting the handsome and mysterious Morgan, her world begins to open to enchanted possibilities she could never have imagined.
    Brought together by the forces of nature, their love is fanned by the winds of fate. The only way to fulfill their destinies is for each to unlock the powers of the other — through the magical tempest of their passions.
