My name is Emily and I'm currently trying to fund my current collection of short stories through Inkshares, a publishing model based on the idea of reader-promoted content.


A little about my project:  

"Conversations: A Collection of Short Stories" is a contemporary work of fiction composed of conversations, each of which stands as a separate story. These conversations take many forms, and often lead to very different results, but all of them explore the distinguishing marks of human nature.


About Inkshares:

Authors raise support for their work by getting the word out, and those interested in purchasing the book may do so via a donation. If the funding goal is reached, contributors receive their copy of the book. If the goal is not reached, then all donations are refunded. Upon reaching the funding goal, Inkshares works with writers through editing, design, and distribution process.

Some more about me:

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Cinema Studies from The State University of New York at Purchase. I am the recipient of the 2014 Pinch Literary Award in Fiction and a 2014 Jane Austen Short Story Award Finalist. Previous publication credits include work featured in Read. Learn. Write., Fifty Word Stories, The Toast, Popmatters, Bibliosmiles, and Enstars. I live in New Jersey with a very small, excessively enthusiastic dog.

The Girl They Sold to the Moon is finally here in e-book format on Amazon for $2.99! Don’t miss this award-winner—it’s fast and furious—a dark and edgy Burlesque in space.

Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Girl-They-Sold-Moon-ebook/dp/B00LDFLR0S/ref=s...

Eighteen-year-old Tilly Breedlove's father has just pawned his daughter for a huge cash advance to escape a penitentiary sentence. She’s whisked away to Luna-the Tranquility Harbor Mining Company, 240,000 miles from home. Family Trade and Loan, an unscrupulous company, is more than willing to take her on and exploit her talent. Forced to be an exotic dancer, she performs risqué shows for the filthy, but filthy rich ore miners--a far cry from her classical and modern dance training. If she isn't resisting obscene advances from bearded "Prairie Dogs", she's fending off jealous head-liner acts who view her as a threat to their status-and when those jealous showgirls say "break a leg", they aim to cause it.

The only reprieve she finds in this shop of horrors is a few close ward friends, a sympathetic dance coach/choreographer, and Buddy Gunner Bell, who just might become the love of her life. It's just enough to stem her psychological meltdown. A tragedy on the Moon base lands Tilly back on Earth. Tilly plots a daring escape plan with her friends. Their plan requires split-second timing and a daring dash. If she can just get past the corporation's airtight security.

HOW DOES A WOMAN BECOME FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT JUST BEFORE HER EXECUTION, WHEN SHE'S BEEN IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT FOR 14 YEARS? THE INMATES SCREAM, "IT'S A GHOST LOVER!"

 

http://www.amazon.com/The-War-Gate-ebook/dp/B008SDVEQU/ref=sr_1_5?s...

 

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.

“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.

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.

**THE BIGGEST GIVEAWAY YET!** Here it is! It's no secret that authors need reviews (as well as likes). I have a goal of obtaining 200 reviews in 2 weeks in preparation for my pitch to a few big wig publishers! YIKES! I believe that we can do it! If you help me reach my goal, I'll give away a KINDLE from Best buy! If we fall short of 200, I'll still giveaway a $50.00 giftcard (to your choice Best buy or Amazon) The winner can also elect to get the gift card instead of the KINDLE (in case you already have one).

Drawing will be on Feb. 1st (I will quit sending out PDF's on the 17th but you can still "pay to play" by buying the kindle, nook, paperback and submit a review by the 1st)

Here are the rules!
Email me at Author.KB.Lever@aol.com to obtain a PDF file of Manipulating the List (or you're welcome to buy it to support me - Amazon.com or BN.com). Once you've completed reading it - go to Amazon.com AND BN.com (must go to both!) and leave an honest review! Once you've left your reviews send me a new email that says 1) your name 2) your reviewer name on the sites. Then keep an eye on www.facebook.com/TheImmortalCompanionSeries to make sure the NOTE (KINDLE GIVEAWAY) has your information to show that you have entered! Winner will be emailed as well. Thanks and Good Luck!

The Zombie Chronicles by Chrissy Peebles

Book trailer: http://youtu.be/ociUHiL1g70

Released July 30th, 2012

Edited by Autumn J. Conley

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a warning to those readers who are looking for a more violent read with gruesome descriptions of blood and gore. This is NOT that type of book. This particuilar story is based more on action, drama, and survival.

Val was bitten by a zombie and now she’s scheduled for lethal injection. Breaking all the rules, Dean Walters snags vials of an experimental serum. But it can’t be tested until Val turns into a zombie: something authorities won’t allow. Her execution is scheduled to happen before transformation is complete, giving Dean only hours to break her out.

When their helicopter crashes straight into the heart of Zombie Land, his rescue mission becomes a fight for survival…and giving up on Val is NOT an option.

Available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008R53WBO
