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.

The Shiro Project by David Khara

No downtime, the story is fast paced and addictive. A thriller whose pages we turn eagerly to know more about the hero's adventures while traveling and reliving the pages of our dark history.

MG/YA Steampunk Fantasy For Review
http://amzn.to/1t7OJtB

The Kingdom Lights
By Steven VS
Publisher: Neverland Publishing Company
Published: October 2014
ISBN: 978-0990314844
ASIN: B00ONEAB4O
Genre: Middle Grade/Young Adult Steampunk/Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: EPUB, MOBI, PDF

In a world where cities float, airships sail the skies and mythical creatures are summoned in a pinch, Celes Vale is distinctly average. Living in the shadow of his talented cousin and his powerful aunt and uncle, Celes is resigned to a future of soot, factories and well, more soot.

But on the night of his twelfth birthday everything changes. A blinding light, a whispered voice and in an instant Celes becomes the first ordinary child in history to develop magic, sending him on a fast-track ticket to the greatest of the floating cities, Gardarel. Boasting grand, elegant buildings wrought from shimmering white stone, the entire city appears as though it has been built from light, and so it has come to be called the Kingdom Lights.

Though some welcome Celes, others want the dirt-ridden up-start off their city—preferably head first. Nowhere is this clearer than in the attitude and actions of the beautiful and haughty Lady Ban and her sneering nephew, Marcus Blackwood. But Blackwood, with his gang of goons and unimaginative one-liners, is soon the least of Celes’s problems.

With a little magic and a lot of detective work, Celes and his group of Scurriers and Wisps unravel the dark truth behind Lady Ban’s prim, perfect smile—an alliance to the villainous Wardens and the masked man who leads them. However, in his attempt to expose Lady Ban, Celes unwittingly stumbles onto an even darker conspiracy—a plan that could lead to the complete destruction of Gardarel itself.

Literary Fiction/Coming of Age For Review
http://amzn.to/1CVfw2D

White Chalk
By Pavarti K. Tyler
Publisher: Evolved Publishing
ISBN: 978-1622532988
ASIN: B00DTNV7B6
Genre: Literary Fiction, Coming of Age
Formats Available For Review: ePub or Mobi

Part Lolita, part Catcher in the Rye, White Chalk breaks all the rules.

Chelle isn’t what most people consider a typical 13-year-old girl—she doesn’t laugh with friends, play sports, or hang out at the mall after school. Instead, she navigates a world well beyond her years.

Life in Dawson, ND spins on as she grasps at people, pleading for someone to save her—to return her to the simple childhood of unicorns on her bedroom wall and stories on her father’s knee.

When Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle is desperate to believe his arrival will be her salvation. So much so, she forgets to save herself. After experiencing a tragedy at school, her world begins to crack, causing a deeper scar in her already fragile psyche.

Follow Chelle’s twisted tale of modern adolescence, as she travels down the rabbit hole into a reality none of us wants to admit actually exists.

Recent Praise:

Ann Pearlman, Pulitzer Prize Nominee and Author of The Christmas Cookie Club said " Tyler’s eye for what happens to many of our teenagers, and the psychological burdens of growing up too fast, too ignored, too alone, too poor are spot on and insightful."

Rachel Thompson, Award-Winning Author of Broken Pieces calls White Chalk "a primer on the brutal effects of abuse, neglect, and self-esteem."

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
http://amzn.to/1rOTOvz

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.
