Writers:  This is a page to post your information on your self-published books when you are looking for reviewers.  Please add your information to the appropriate discussion forum for your genre. (I will delete posts that aren't in the appropriate discussion.  If your genre isn't listed, you may add the genre as a discussion.)

 

Reviewers: This is a group to give helpful feedback and honest reviews.  If you choose to review an author's book, please do your best to write respectful and helpful reviews (in other words, please don't agree to review and then bash the author on your website).  The important thing is, this is a group to try to help these authors.  That does not, however, mean that you have to write glowing reviews.  Just consider whether it would be better to post a negative review on your site or to send a private message to the author regarding your concerns.  If you agree to review a book and decide it's not for you and you don't want to finish it, please send an email to the author and explain why.

Young Adult/Middle Grade Fantasy For Review
http://amzn.to/1rPJmOt

Bobby Ether and the Academy
by R Scott Boyer
ISBN: 978-1482084825
ASIN: B00FFHPKLW
Published: September 2013
Pages: 366
Genre: YA Fantasy, Middle Grade Fantasy

“There is no such thing as magic.” That’s what the mysterious stranger named Cassandra tells Bobby after helping him narrowly escape from the small army of secret agents who surround his house. What follows is an amazing adventure – from indoor forests to vast archives, from a labyrinth of jade mines to the dark recesses of a bear’s lair. Along the way, Bobby will learn that, while there may be no such thing as magic, there is powerful energy within us all. In fact, the entire universe is connected by energy – and he has the rare ability to control it.

Join Bobby and his best friend Jinx as they avoid school bullies, a suspected assassin, and meta-human henchmen alike to unravel the many mysteries of the Academy – the ancient and enigmatic monastery in Tibet where kids with extraordinary potential are sent to study. But is the Academy truly what it claims to be?

Fantasy Novel Available For Review

Noddy In Wonderland
By Paddy Bostock
Publisher: Wings ePress
Published: August 31, 2014
ASIN: B00N842F76
Genre: Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: pdf

In his wildest dreams, Afghanistan war veteran Noddy Stoddart fantasised about becoming king of Liverpool, even though his brother, Knobby, told him he was crazy. But shooting government minister St John Jaunston in the bottom with an air rifle on a visit to the city leads bizarrely to Noddy’s dream coming true--as president of the newly created People’s Republic of Liverpool.

Outraged as Noddy and his Goth/Punk girlfriend set Britain against him through further “bottom blasting” and then faux vampire actions before escaping to a castle in France, the prime minister initially threatens ancient punishments. But, facing Cabinet backstabbing and the loss of a general election, he succumbs to realpolitik and invites the miscreants home as voter bait.

Mistake, because that’s when--with a little help from his friends, and the involvement of an elf and his dog, Noddy takes full advantage.

After the World Trade Center towers in New York City were destroyed, the United States begins to track the terrorists down in Afghanistan. When America initiates its “War Against Terrorism” with military action in Afghanistan, the relations between the West and Muslim countries, and between Christian and Islamic religious groups, begin to deteriorate and become dangerously tense. Meanwhile the Architect meets an old high school classmate, and they slowly drift into an affair, even though she is a married woman. The love affair heats up even as military, religious, and terrorist tensions reach a climatic conclusion.

Synopsis:

J Collins, used tire distributor thinks he couldn’t have met Rachel Patterson, non-profit director of The Dreamcatcher’s Organization under a more embarrassing circumstance. If the first impression is everything, then J is sure she will be clutching her purse and crossing to the opposite side of the street at the sight of him. He soon learns his assumption is quite accurate when he repeatedly meets Rachel in the elevator of the building where they both reside. For Rachel, these untimely meetings are a constant reminder of why good men are in such short supply. That is until the elevator breaks leaving J and her stranded inside. J and Rachel soon agree these meetings of chance are better described as divine appointments. However, the people in their worlds disagree especially when J becomes an expendable casualty of an evil plan devised against The Dreamcatcher’s Organization. J and Rachel’s faith is tested beyond measure to hold on to God and each other when the truth about J’s past is exposed and a past love of Rachel’s comes to Richmond, Virginia with an agenda of his own.
