Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

Dear all, 

since we talked about setting up a chapter discussion within the fiction group, i thought it would make more sense to give it its own thread.

and to make it more efficient, we could follow an easy submission form.

Name of author

name of work

publisher

website or link where one can purchase/download the entire work

excerpt of the book (prologue or first chapter) as a link

 

As for comments, they are obviously welcome and expected, but let's keep it to constructive criticism as direct messages to the author so as not to crowd this thread and make it hard to navigate. what do you think?

 

Ok, let me give it a go:

My first chapter of The War Gate is available via the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/The-War-Gate-ebook/dp/B008SDVEQU/ref=sr_1_1?s...

Here is a brief description:

Welcome to The War Gate, a paranormal romance/thriller with a time-travel twist.

“This was a solidly written tale with a trace of fantasy and complex thought used in defining the concept of leaping from one time gate to the next—excellent job of structuring.”
Terrie G, Bitten by Books, 4 out of 5.

“The War Gate is a captivating book. Mystery, magic and the paranormal blend together in a perfect mix. I would thoroughly recommend this book to fantasy enthusiasts who also like romance.
Orcid, Aurora Reviews, 5 out of 5.

Tag Line: Through a miraculous conception, Avalon Labrador must give birth to herself before she is executed, to solve her husband’s murder and her own wrongful conviction.

When the reincarnated Avy Labrador is kicked out of her stepfather’s house on her 18th birthday, she has no idea that the man who raised her framed her mother to cover his murder so he could acquire a major software empire. Now, years later, with the help of her magician boyfriend, Sebastian, Avy is about to discover that her birth was otherworldly and for a purpose. The ancient Roman God Janus was so appalled by the heinous murder of Tom Labrador by his brother Drake that he opened up a War Gate.

Avy has received half of her mother’s soul light and half of a God’s essence. Her mission is to put the real killer behind bars. The only catch: she must learn to “Gate-Walk”, that’s time traveling to the layman. She soon finds out that she is a drunk driver on the space/time continuum super highway.

Just when she believes she has too much on her plate to contend with, she learns that she’s pegged the wrong man as the killer…her boyfriend is not who he appears to be…and Janus, the so-called God of new beginnings, doorways and gates, just might be the biggest conman and liar she has ever met.

The War Gate has a heavy mystery structure, as well as paranormal/magic and romance elements.

War Gate Author's Note: The antagonist character, Wax Man, is not for the squeamish. I warn you ahead of time that he is the most disgusting, vile creature/human you're ever likely to read about. Not for younger readers under 13.

Nineteen years ago, a war was waged in the Dream World between the Dream King's armies and the Nightmare King's armies. This was because the Nightmare King broke the Sovereign Law Of the Dreamworld and had a child with the Princess Of Dreams. A child, whose power can build or destroy the Dream World. This child was cast into the human world to prevent disaster. Now, nineteen years later, he must fight to restore order to both worlds.

Here is Planet Janitor; Custodian of the Stars, a SF adventure/thriller akin to Starship Troopers:

http://www.amazon.com/Planet-Janitor-Custodian-Illustrated-ebook/dp...

Captain Zachary Crowe and the crew of Planet Janitor Corporation are adept at handling environmental clean-ups and close system jumps to collect precious ores and space trash. The problem is they have yet to complete an assignment without a mishap to add to their not so stellar record. Scraping the bottom of the barrel, Orion Industries contracts Planet Janitor for a clandestine operation that no one else wants, offering them more money than they could spend in three lifetimes. The mission entails a 12 light-year trip to a newly found habitable planet in the Tau Ceti system. The crew will lose 26 years on Earth due to the cryo jump, but that is the least of their problems. What they find on Tau Ceti will rattle their wits, test their courage, and threaten their very survival.

Hello. I am a new member and some time ago attempted to submit my first chapter (EUREKA MAN) for consideration. I haven't heard anything back yet and was wondering if my submission has been received correctly. I notice that the date of your post is 2012. Is there anything more current I should be following? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Patrick Middleton

Consideration for what? This is only a forum.

Thank you for your reply. By consideration I meant that I was curious if anyone had read the excerpt and what they thought of it. Pardon me if that was unclear. 

Ah sorry. I didn't scroll up and see. And no I haven't read
