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.

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.

The first book in the Melody of the Gears saga, an epic story telling the long and sordid history of the world of Giliath. His Brother's Keeper is the culmination of ten years of hard work which have amounted in a series of seven books, a full working language with its own alphabet spoken by the tribe of the ancient Nendeeni, and a myriad of potential spin off ideas. This story completely breaks through genre lines and it could fall anywhere in the categories of Young Adult, LGBT, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Steampunk, or Supernatural.

The Melody of the Gears: His Brother's Keeper

I'm currently looking for interviewers, blog spotlights, and most importantly reviewers! I'm more than happy to share the PDF version of the book with anyone who would like to do a review or spotlight, and could do the same for the paperback version (though it will take me more time to procure and send, obviously.)

Some background on the book and a synopsis:

I'm twenty-five years old and have been working on developing the world and characters within this story for over ten years. The world of The Melody of the Gears has become a labor of love for me, a story that is about representation for minorities of all walks of life, and an interesting world where the prejudices that we're familiar with don't exist-- there aren't even words for them! My influences include many Young Adult authors but I specifically remember being inspired by Garth Nix, K.A. Applegate (especially her Everworld series!), and Cassandra Clare, more recently. 

So far, I have seven books fully outlined and planned in the series, as well as a guide to speaking the fully functional language of the Nendeeni that I created to add depth to the world's history. 

I set out to write heroes for the LGBT+ community, so that queer people could find themselves in these books as the hero; not as simple tragedy porn. 

Synopsis: Paragon City: The last bastion of humanity on a dying planet. Within its desert embrace unfold the stories of many people: 
 
The workers at a famed brothel, the fate of a queen on the run, ladies who will not be used as tools any longer, A doll with a human heart, and a strange young man who can’t remember anything but his name. 
 
With his arrival in the unchanging city, everything is about to change.  
 
Leo is the golden boy at Club Wisp: a famed brothel and secret base of operations for the Iron Mutiny. As the people’s resistance against a tyrannical monarchy and their demon allies as well as manning Paragon City’s entertainment industry, the Iron Mutiny has their hands full. 
 
Leo’s fate— and that of the endless war they’re fighting— changes forever when a beautiful amnesiac forces him into a magical Contract and out of his comfort zone.  
 
The fabric of their reality begins to unravel. Can the Iron Mutiny survive the biggest change of all?

Feel free to contact me here or by email at hazel.blackthorn89@gmail.com if you're interested!

[Note: There is mention of many adult themes in this story, but this is NOT erotica. ]
