L’Amore Perfetto By Cynthia Kimball @cynthiakimball

Posted on

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Cynthia Kimball for letting me post about her novel!

 

L’AMORE PERFETTO BY CYNTHIA KIMBALL

Introduction by Cynthia Kimball:

L’Amore Perfetto is a charming feel-good romance for someone who doesn’t want a difficult/complicated premise – and for those who want to feel teary and say “ahhhh” when the ending comes. A recent reader said she was suggesting it to all her high school and college friends. Another reader is in her 50s and adored it.

 

Book Description:

Romance meets a modern-day fairy-tale.

L'Amore Perfetto By Cynthia KimballNicki hates to date; the whole putting herself out there night after night after night is not her thing. Unfortunately, her roommate is the exact opposite. When Kristen comes up with her newest man-catching ploy, joining a discriminating dating service that accepts less than 5% of its female applicants, Nicki sees an opportunity and gets Kristen to agree that if she applies and does not get accepted, that Kristen won’t bug her about going out for nine months.
Full steam ahead, she jumps into the multi-step application process. Each step increases her desire to make it to the next one and when she makes it, she is thrown into a world she didn’t know existed. Will she falter in this new life or will she make it to the end and meet her soul mate?

 

Author bio:

Ever since she learned to read, Cynthia Kimball has been imagining stories. As soon as she learned to write, she started penning them down. A bibliophile, Cynthia enjoys many genres of books including sci-fi/fantasy, romance, erotica, non-fiction and all things Shakespeare. As an artist, ideas can strike at any time so she carries a tiny book around to make notes on as inspiration hits.

Her newest novel, L’Amore Perfetto, is what she calls ‘Romance meets modern-Cynthia Kimballday fairy-tale.’ While not what she considered her normal genre, the story flowed in six days and after a year of editing, re-editing and sitting on it, she elected to send it directly to the e-audience. Humor is a major part of her writing and this story made her laugh while writing it and continues to do so today. Enjoy!

Due to the positive response to L’Amore Perfetto, she is currently working on a new dating service story as well as a few young adult stories that have been floating around her mind for awhile. Currently, besides L’Amore Perfetto, she also has a Sci-fi/Fantasy novel out In Search of the Drasta and a book on Green Cleaning.

She is just getting started releasing the wonderful books, novels, and novelettes she has written. Stay tuned for more coming your way.

Library Tales: Take 3 Revenge is Forever By Thianna D @the_weremouse

Posted on

It’s my pleasure to introduce you all to Thianna D! Thank you to the author for taking the time to do this!

Thianna D will be hosting the Erotic Holiday Countdown on her blog from the 1st December until the 31st! See Thianna D’s author bio below for further details. Don’t miss it!

 

Please Note: This book is for 18+ readers and contains scenes of a sexual nature.

 

LIBRARY TALES: TAKE 3 REVENGE IS FOREVER BY THIANNA D

Introduction by Thianna D:

I have long since had erotic fantasies about and involving books. Maybe it has to do with my first erotic experience was from something I read, or maybe it was the years I spent in libraries, either way, they made way for my Library Tales. The first 2 Library tales are BDSM oriented. The third one takes a divergent turn.

Library Tales: Take 3 Revenge is Forever
Genre: Explicit Paranormal Erotica

In this book, vampires are a naturally cruel species. To them humans are nothing more than walking/talking blood bags. Once mature enough that they don’t kill everything they drink from, vampires tend to capture humans, bleeding them a little daily or weekly, using their bodies for their pleasure until they die. They are known as vessels. Once a vessel, that individual lives only to serve their master.

Camilia has been forced into the life of a vessel by her guardian Blayton and no matter how badly she is treated, she refuses to give him the one thing he demands from all his vessels. This excerpt takes place after she finally realizes what she is to him.

After that her days became monotonous. Elixer six times, steak three times, fucked into oblivion at least once. Over and over, day after day, until she had no idea how long she had been there or even who she was most of the time. And yet, even as her weakness and her desire for him increased, so did the desire to remember who she had been. Because of that one need, she was able to deny him the one thing he insisted on from his vessels and had never been denied before.

Her complete surrender.

 

Book Description:

Library Tales: Take 3 Revenge Is Forever By Thianna DThis library tale is darker than the other Library Tales. It also does not contain BDSM. Instead, this tale takes place in a castle in the Scottish Highlands where Camilia finds out her guardian, the man who has been spanking her ass in his private library for four years for perceived transgressions, is in fact a vampire.

Join Camilia as she fights against the irresistible draw to the vampire who controls her every move. When she thinks she has won, she finds out she has lost everything. How long can revenge last when she now has to obey more than him?

 

Author Bio:

Thianna D has written her entire life, but it wasn’t until she started writing Thianna Derotic that she truly found her passion. She writes both het and gay erotica (m/f & m/m), many with BDSM themes. She is also hosting the Erotic Holiday Countdown on her blog Dec 1-31, 2012, 31 days of free erotica by 7 different authors, including herself. Added to all the free erotica you can read, one lucky reader will win their very own original erotic story. Currently, she has a gay bdsm erotic series The Blake/Dusty Chronicles, of which 8 of the 10 are published. There are 3 Library Tales with more on the way, and one paranormal erotica called Twice as Nice: Anya’s Tale.

ZEKE BY WODKE HAWKINSON

About ZEKE:

ZEKE By Wodke HawkinsonZeke is a dark novel of sexual obsession, psychological manipulation, and looming peril.

Sue Cox is a naive college student who falls for the exciting new clerk at the local used bookstore. Captivated by Zeke’s brooding good looks and menacing but irresistible charisma, Sue capitulates to his will, leaving her wide open for exploitation. Zeke begins to exert subtle control and entices her to leave town with him. As they travel, his behavior grows more deviant and increasingly volatile.

After Sue’s car is found deserted in an outlying cemetery, the police dismiss her parents’ concerns since it appears Sue left willingly. The Coxes immediately hire William Falstaff, a small-town private investigator. He begins his inquiry with only two objectives. First, to verify that Sue’s departure is voluntary.

Posted on

It’s my pleasure to be hosting Lee Chambers on my blog today. Thanks, Lee!

THE PINEVILLE HEIST BY LEE CHAMBERS

Biography:

Writer, producer and director Lee Chambers has been lecturing and producing award-winning films and education film production workshops for over ten years.

Expanding his creative talents and feeding his love for story-telling, Lee decided to turn his attention to novel writing, his debut novel The Pineville Heist becoming a Number 1 Best Selling Thriller.

Born in Canada, Lee’s roots are in Yorkshire and he moved to England in 1995Lee Chambers where he completed his post-graduate diploma in Film Production at the Leeds Metropolitan University.  He worked professionally in London on film and television productions for the BBC and Miramax before heading to Los Angeles in 2002, continuing his work in the music industry and working on music videos, returning to Canada in 2004 to take up a post as a Professor in the Film Production Program at Confederation College.

In 2005 Lee developed the Make It Short Film Project (MISFP), a project which allows Lee to share his passion for film, while educating communities in the art of film production and allowing them a rare and valuable opportunity to experience life on a ‘real’ film set.

MISFP has attracted Academy Award Winners such as Paul Haggis and Roger Corman, coming on board as Executive Producers; Vincenzo Natali, Genie nominated Director of Splice lent his support as Executive Producer for Lee’s Australian produced 2011 Eyes on the Road.

Lee’s short films have been nominated and won awards around the world, his heart-warming 2009 When Life Gives you Lemons short, starring Basil Hoffman, has been shown in over 60 festivals worldwide.

About the Book:

The Pineville Heist By Lee ChambersThe Pineville Heist was developed from the award winning screenplay of the same name I co-wrote with Todd Gordon.  Having already attracted a Distribution and LA Sales Agent, The Pineville Heist is currently in the funding stages of being developed into a major feature movie starring Booboo Stewart (Twilight saga fame) in the main lead role, exciting times!

“Aaron whipped through the long grass as fast as his legs would carry him. His eyes were filled with angst and adrenaline. He was still in shock. Not every day you see a dead man. Not every day you see that much money either – he glanced down at the backpack in his arms. Must–keep –running.”

Seventeen year old Aaron stumbles into the aftermath of a five million dollar bank heist gone wrong. Hiding under a canoe, Aaron partially catches the murder of one of the robbers. In the chaos he sneaks away with the money and heads straight for the closest place of safety, his high school. Terrified, Aaron tells his shocking tale to Amanda Becker, his drama teacher, but it doesn’t take long for one of the psychotic robbers to show up. In the locked down school the pair are relentlessly pursued in a quest to get the money back and wipe out the evidence.

Posted on

I’d like to give a big thank you to Catherine Gardiner for taking the time to submit her debut novel to The Novel-List.

 

FORGOTTEN (IN THE SHADOWS, BOOK ONE) BY CATHERINE GARDINER

About Forgotten (In The Shadows, Book One):

Forgotten (In The Shadows, Book One) By Catherine GardinerSycamore Heights, where everyone keeps a deadly secret.

Katrina Harvey has just enrolled into the senior class of Sycamore Heights High along with her foster sister, Jessica Sinclair. Unfortunately Katrina is no ordinary enrollee as ten months previously she was brutally attacked and has been left with amnesia.

Almost a year after those horrific events took place Katrina is being stalked by someone, or something, who doesn’t want her to remember her past and will do anything to keep it that way.

Moving to a new town is never easy, as Suzanne Harvey is well aware, but focused on finding her older sister, Katrina, fate has led her to Sycamore Heights. Now, as Suzanne gets closer to revealing secrets from the past, someone from the present doesn’t like what she could unearth, even if that means they drive her to the brink of insanity to keep the secrets forgotten.

 

About the Author:

Catherine Gardiner was born and raised next to rolling green meadows in Yorkshire, England where she resides with her beloved border collie. When she is not writing she is either researching for her upcoming novels, taking photographs, cooking or going for long leisurely walks along a nearby river. She first conceived the idea for her novels when she was doing a creative writing course in college and had to walk home alone through a wood where she often imagined what might be in the shadows. She also thinks her love of writing and her passion for all things creative is due to her Irish roots.

Paper Dreams by Phyllis J Burton @PhyllisBurton

Posted on

Many thanks to Phyllis for taking the time to get in touch with me to submit her book to my blog.

 

PAPER DREAMS By Phyllis J. Burton

About the Author:

My  Dreams

My name is Phyllis Burton and I live near Farnham amongst the Phyllis J Burtonbeautiful west-Surrey hills in southern England, which have given me the inspiration to write: I love putting my thoughts and those of my characters down on paper.    I started writing for my children and eventually moved on to bigger things.  Now, I read my stories to my grandchildren.  I’ve written quite a few short stories, one of which was recorded and read on radio, and two short-listed in competitions.   I’ve written three one-act plays, (two produced and directed by me).  I love choral singing and enjoy water-colour painting.   I painted the cover of my first novel (A PASSING STORM) which was published by Trafford in 2006.

A few days ago, (20th August, 2012) A PASSING STORM was reissued and republished by MATADOR (Imprint of Troubador Publishing Ltd.) as an ebook/Kindle version on Amazon.

I feel quite excited now that A PASSING STORM  has been reissued and it can join PAPER DREAMS on my bookshelf (and hopefully other people’s too).   Every author wishes their work to do well and I am no exception.   A paper-back version will be issued later on this year.

I am part way through my third book, which should prove to be really exciting.

 

About Paper Dreams:

INHERITANCE?

Do people ever think about the word ‘Inheritance’?   To some, it may remind them that their lovely Uncle Bertie has not long to live and they can look forward to ‘inheriting’ some of his hard-earned money.

Others might fear that a particular disease can be inherited from a family member:  whilst some perhaps might think about inheriting some of their good or bad looks, or being too fat or thin, short or tall.    ‘Oh dear, my darling new-born baby girl has inherited Uncle George’s nose’, you might exclaim!   But fear not, babies nearly always change as they get older.    But, the expectation that the latest arrival to your family might possibly have inherited your grandfather’s brains, could either put you into a panic or set your pulse racing.

So, when you think of the word ‘Inheritance’, what does it actually mean to you?

There are television programmes where celebrities search for their roots.  Their expectations are sometimes dashed when they discover skeletons in very old cupboards.    Doesn’t every family have those?

If someone dies without leaving a will, and no relatives can be traced however distant, then this money will eventually find its way into the Government’s coffers.   In fact, the Government inherits quite a tidy sum every year.   But there are companies who make it their business to find heirs.    They go to vast lengths to find anyone related to a deceased person.   Quite often, people are totally unaware of the existence of a relative and eagerly receive any money due to them.   Sometimes only one person is lucky and so receives thousands of pounds and yet others find their hoped for inheritance, gradually decreasing as more and more relatives come up on the Heir Hunters’ computer screens.

In my latest book, PAPER DREAMS, a romantic thriller, (Harold Hapsworth-Cole) the only known heir to a vast fortune, is sitting in a hovel in Malta, penniless and dreaming of his inheritance now that his aunt (Marjorie Hapsworth-Cole) has died.

Paper Dreams By Phyllis J BurtonMeanwhile, following Marjorie’s death, young librarian Katie Nicholson is in the attic of Epton Hall (an enormous, crumbling and creepy mansion) cataloguing the vast library, when she discovers  love letters written in 1953, and a birth certificate, hidden in an old book!    These letters prove that another heir exists, and any hope that Harold might have had of inheriting the estate, flies straight out of the window.

Imagine his fury when he finds out that he has a cousin!    Well, what would you do?   Would you just sit at home and bemoan the fact that your uncle had an affair with someone living in Canada, and there was a child who could inherit everything?     This knowledge, quite literally drives Harold insane and his quest to find the usurper of his hoped-for fortune, brings him into close contact with Katie, with disastrous consequences.   But despite his evil endeavours, Katie makes it her ambition to see that justice is done and that the right heir inherits everything.

So you see, the word ‘Inheritance’ means an awful lot to many people.   What does it mean to you and are there any skeletons in your cupboard?

PAPER DREAMS was published by MATADOR on 1st December, 2011 in paper-back and Kindle versions. 

 

What Others Said About Paper Dreams:

Part of a review taken from THE SELF-PUBLISHING MAGAZINE (Summer 2012):

“The book itself feels substantial, the cover is attractive and its quality is good.   It is a galloping very enjoyable read and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, that’s well worth its price.”
