|Josepha; A Dull Life||Genevieve Fosa||Novel||5||n/a||Aug 29, 2014|
Summary:There is a lot in this first chapter that I probably will not include in the final version. I simply sat down and started writing in order to get the juices flowing. Even so, I would very much enjoy getting some feedback on this. The story involves paranormal activity and time travel, and I have been writing it in order to entertain myself, so it should be fun to read. Thank you in advance for you input. Genevieve

Threads of information begin to appear as Airen, a noblewoman and her priestess friend Jaylene run to help another Wolf named Kha. If they can reach him, there is a slim chance of saving the woman he loves. To anyone reading this, I'm not a sensitive soul who needs to be buffered. I'm seeking truth...brutal and honest critique. How else am I going to improve unless I know what needs to improve? Feel free to whack away. I look forward to your comments and critique. So you're aware, these chapters are in a loose format until I start to stitch the story together. Sorry about the non-linear format. This will improve as more of the story appears. Hit me!
|The World Of Phyries||Jube||Novel||1||n/a||Aug 26, 2014|
Summary:As a recent member to TNBW site, this will be my very first offering for review (fingers crossed). This is a work of fantasy where a world was created in imitation of Earth. Different races and supernatural creatures have traveled to this world in search of a new beginning. I hope you will enjoy following Talmas and his friends as they will grow to find fate has chosen them for a different path than those around them. The feedback I am interested in is: 1. content - did this introductory chapter seem interesting? 2. Suggestions on any different word or sentences that work better are welcome. 3. Did it make sense or is there anything that you felt seemed confusing as the reader? I guess the most important feedback to me is - Does it seem like I can put together a decent story or should I pack it in? Thank you for your feedback and be sure to email me if you have anything you would like me to review in return.

|The Sorcerer's Progress, Book 2: Earth By Fire||njc||Novel||1||n/a||Aug 9, 2014|
Summary:The second volume of The Sorcerer's Progress. Although listed as Fantasy, I prefer to think of this as a story set in a fantasy world. // I have a lot of work to do yet back in Book 1, but the first chapter is rattling around in my mind and I wanted to get it out. // The title is provisional. I picked it a while ago, but because things have moved around, I might need to change it.

|Shock Me, a Purgatory novella #2||Susan Stec||Novel||0||n/a||Aug 1, 2014|
Summary:~~With dueling points of view, the author allows the reader firsthand knowledge of tempting desires destined for failure in a world where this union is unacceptable on both sides of Purgatory~~ She's a doppelgänger, a myth, a night-fright, and as singular in existence as an individual's dream—a demon's blunder. She has no name, no identity...unless she wears a human, but she's unwilling to kill her host as her elders strongly advise. She'd rather borrow a human life, entertain feelings of the flesh and then release her host. Until she met Gaire that was enough, but now she wants more than being a creature from Down Under and pretending to be a part of what's above the sewers of Purgatory. Gaire's a rogue. Moving from place to place and hiding from those who want to kill him has been his way of life for thirteen years, without a hitch. He can't fight what he is. They won't let him forget what he did. And because of that, he's sworn to never attempt another relationship...until he met CeCe. Now, on the run again, he can't stop thinking about the girl who has changed his life forever.

Finding that stone is the only way to stop Queen Qabala and Eversor from dominating existence itself, if they can get to it first. But as they near their journey's end, Nerris must confront the very ghosts of his past and find some way to live with them in the present before they destroy his fellowship for good.
|The Sorcerer's Progress, Book 1: Children and Beasts||njc||Novel||2||n/a||Aug 1, 2014|
Summary:More of the story's themes are going to come out as I continue to post, so I'll give you the full (provisional) titles so far: The Sorcerer's Progress/Account I: Original Sin/Section 1: Ceremony of Innocence/Book 1: Children and Beasts. Sorry to confuse all who've reviewed it so far. The repub's and new chapters forthcoming will bring in Mellaen's activities while her daughter is in training. Massive action will still wait a while. This story is (still) in its early project stage. I'm working on the outline of a story that should WELL exceed 200,000 words. As I go, I write episodes and sections to see how they work--and to see if I can actually handle the material. So these "chapters" are episodes, connected or disconnected. I'll try to give you enough background to follow along with things. Although it's under the fantasy genre, I prefer to call it a story set in a fantasy world. It's quasi-medieval; sorcery is a surrogate for medicine and technology. This isn't the magic of Harry Potter; it's the manipulation of Elemental Power present "naturally." I quote the word because there is a creation myth involved. I'm not sure how far into the story it will be presented.
|Ghost of a Chance (Ghost Dance vol. 2)||Don_P_Chambers||Novel||2||n/a||Jul 15, 2014|
Summary:The sequel to "Ghost Dance", which was workshopped here last year. If you haven't read that, some parts of this may be confusing, although I try to include a few asides to explain some of the important plot points of the first book.
This is a first draft, so all comments, suggestions, and criticisms are welcome.
Please note -I have changed the ending of the first book from earlier drafts - Lydia and other members of Amara's family survive, and Ghost only destroys one star, not eight. He hides the other eight missiles, just in case.
|The Greatest of all Nephelim.||cyeote||Novel||1||n/a||Jul 8, 2014|
Summary:The Greatest of all Nephelim is a sequel to Succubus Tear. It details the journey of Rinnah Lamentson, a human-Succubus hybrid.
I always intended book 2 to go over the immense backstories of everyone... The book is far from complete, but I want to see initial impression.
