Please review information below to determine if this is the group for you.

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 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. ]

Today i am going to go a little off topic, last night i watched the big bang theory 'The Relationship Diremption' (In the UK we are a bit behind!), well i almost died!! at the beginning of the episode Sheldon Cooper talks about CERN and the large hadron collider, he was wishing the had created a black hole, and that they had discovered a way into alternate realities. Well Sheldon Cooper, it seems that i answered your dreams!! my book is EXACTLY that, i even refer to super symmetry another favourite of his.

I only wish Chuck Lorre and his team had seen my book.

So if you like the Big Bang Theory plaese check it out, and if you are another Sheldon Cooper then i am sure you will LOVE it.

I'm offering a eBook gift via Amazon for anyone willing to read and review my new science fiction romance A Seacat’s Love. Send your email to Seaanan@gmail.com

 

New Release! Received 4  5-stars.  Now committed to helping Leonora and Tigif remain safely out of the clutches of a wrongful government and find a way back to their home planet, Rick faces many difficult choices—but he doesn’t want to repeat the past and make another devastatingly wrong decision. His relationship with Leonora grows in fits and starts, constantly undermined by Tigif’s devious plots, and Leonora is threatened by Tigif’s increasingly forceful advances. As they avoid a massive government dragnet, fight off dangerous feline fevers, and try to retrieve the aliens’ ship, heated emotions of jealousy, distrust, and resentment that arise in the confusion put their very lives in jeopardy.
