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 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.

Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation by Neha Yazmin @NehaYazmin

Posted on

I’m pleased to introduce Neha back to share her latest novel with us. Her first blog entry is regarding her contemporary romance novel, Chasing Pavements.

POISON BLOOD, BOOK 1: REVELATION BY NEHA YAZMIN

About Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation:

Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation By Neha Yazmin

“I don’t know what blood tastes like to a human. I’d never even licked a tiny drop of it from a pricked finger, let alone suck on a bleeding cut. The shedding of blood, my own, or anyone else’s, always made me scream or panic in fear and revulsion. Now it’s my only food source.”

Elisia Dalton, more commonly known as Ellie, is not a typical teenaged vampire. She still has her humanity and conscience. Her human memories and growing pains. And the same distaste for blood.

Still reeling from the secrets she uncovered before she was turned into a vampire by the mysterious immortal Christian, Ellie is also finding it hard to come to terms with what she has become. And the revelations keep coming.

Book one of the Poison Blood series reveals why Ellie is not like others of her kind.

 

Author Bio:

She writes both contemporary and paranormal romance. Her debut novel ‘Chasing Pavements’ was first published as an e-book in summer 2012. She is currently working on a number of projects.

ANTics by Dakota Douglas @_DakotaDouglas

Posted on

Today’s author is Linda, otherwise known as Dakota Douglas; author of ANTics, a Middle Grade children’s book, for ages 7 years old and over. A big thank you to her for taking the time to do this!

 

ANTics By Dakota DouglasANTics By Dakota Douglas

About ANTics:

InhabitANT is a hidden world where thousands of ants eat, sleep, work, raise children and wage wars. Their fiercest enemy is an evil spider, a massive devious beast with magic powers, called RepugnANT. Three young ants –ExuberANT, BrilliANT and HesitANT – stumble across the fiend while looking for food for their nestmates. Their frantic efforts to escape the murderous monster thrust them into one heart-pounding adventure after another. The eight-legged brute is in hot pursuit and he’s vowed to catch them and wipe out their nest. The pals need to escape his clutches and alert the nest, using Zube’s own special powers and Brill’s clever brain. But is HesitANT up to the challenge? Watching his family wiped out by slaveraider ants has left the little ant nervous and timid. Can he shrug off his fears to save Zube and Brill from the world’s craziest spider and save InhabitANT in time?

About the Author:Dakota Douglas

I’m a retired newspaper reporter from the North East of England, following my childhood dream of being a novelist. As a kid I read books under the bedclothes by torchlight. Now I dive under the bedclothes, torch in hand, to scribble down conversations between my nutty book characters in case I forget them in the morning.
I’ve written stories since I was about eight years old. I had a toy typewriter (there weren’t home computers in those prehistoric days) and there I would sit, just like a real author, writing novels. I was a huge fan of British children’s writer Enid Blyton, but I invented my own characters, settings and storylines. My dad created me a book cover, on which I proudly put my name and the title of the book.

When I wasn’t hunched over my toy typewriter, you could see me smashing a tennis ball again the brick end of a block of garages beside my home. For hours on end I perfected my lob, backhand and forehand shots – all the time spinning stories in my head.

The love of writing led me down a career path as a journalist. So when I retired in 2011, it wasn’t a surprise that I returned to novel writing.

My first novel is a children’s fantasy story called ANTics. I get a lot of inspiration for my stories from dreams. And ANTics came from a dream after watching a group of ants carry a potato crisp back to their nest.

I believe you’re never too old to try something new or challenge yourself. In other words Reach For The Stars.

Chasing Pavements by Neha Yazmin @NehaYazmin

Posted on

I am pleased to share with you all the first Author submission to The Novel-List, courtesy of Neha Yazmin.

 

Chasing Pavements Book Cover CHASING PAVEMENTS by Neha Yazmin

About Chasing Pavements:

“It was very stupid but it was also very true. Mukti was in love with him and she didn’t even know his name.”

To introverted and socially withdrawn singer and songwriter Jamie, life has no meaning unless childhood love Sarah returns to him. Roaming through life without living it, shutting the world out, he has long since given up on a potential career in music.

It is only when he meets the unexpectedly inspirational Mukti, who instantly falls in love with him, that Jamie is lured out of the black hole he has banished himself to for years. Suddenly, his creativity knows no bounds and he feels torn – he has to see her, but what will she make of his tortured soul? Little does he know that Mukti has her own secrets and is just as troubled as he is. Her name translates as ‘freedom’ in her native tongue Bengali, but she is anything but free.

Torn between his unconditional love for Sarah, and his undeniable need for Mukti, Jamie’s life is in more chaos than ever before. And when his estranged mother Tanya becomes intent on sabotaging his relationship with Mukti, Jamie stands to lose the two women he cannot live without.

Set in contemporary London, ‘Chasing Pavements’ is a unique love story between two unique characters who will stay with you after you have turned the final page.

 

What Others Said About Chasing Pavements:

Chasing Pavements is like one of a kind.   I loved the book.   It touched me in such a way that I felt lost for a while without having Jamie and Mukti in my life.   I can’t believe that this is the author’s first book; the way it’s written is excellent.  I was captured from the beginning of the story.  A must read.” *****
~~~
“Unputdownable. I loved the London setting. The story is well told. Neha has a way with descriptions that make the scenes really vivid. The songs were a great mechanism to add to the story telling. I look forward to reading Neha’s other work but I hope I don’t have to wait too long!” *****
