|The Secret of Murinar||Unbar||Novel||0||n/a||Mar 7, 2014|

|The Sorcerer's Progress, Vol 1: Children and Beasts||njc||Novel||0||n/a||Mar 5, 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/Volume 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.
|Journey To Landaran||Judy Goodwin||Novel||2||n/a||Mar 5, 2014|
Summary:Aidah and Tavish, twins and troublemakers extraordinaire, may have bitten off more than they can swallow when strange things begin to happen around them. They already know part of the problem--Tavish is a firestarter. But Aidah has shown no Talent as of yet, though there has been hope since she was born that she might carry the rare Talent of Spirit Magic. Far away in the city of Landaran lives their Grandess Korva, Protector of the Doane the greatest Spirit Mage of the land. In the mountain village, Aidah and Tavish's lives have never been touched by the war that has raged between the Doane and the Innis Empire for over two hundred years. That's about to change. Note: This is my latest project--I'm working on the last few chapters now, but thought I'd get moving on having others look at the earlier chapters. This will be the first book of a five book series. I caution readers that there are some darker issues tackled in this book, including rape and child abuse. All types of criticism are welcome--this has not gone through a lot of editing yet. Thanks!
|Ghost Dance||Don_P_Chambers||Novel||1||n/a||Mar 5, 2014|
Summary:Have you ever woken from a dream with a great idea for a story, even if you're already working on another one? That's what happened here. I was halfway through writing one novel also being workshopped here, and suddenly I had to write this one.
It's an urban fantasy/mystery; boy meets girl; girl can jump between two worlds, but has lost her way home; boy helps her back in a very interesting way. Girl asks boy to help find her brother.
I'll warn you, there is sex here, and it happens early (Chapter 2). It's a little graphic, but not too much. So if you don't like that, you've been warned. I would like feedback on whether you think sex that early would be a turn-off to some readers - I doubt I will change it, but I could make it a little less graphic.
Update: 9 Feb 2014. I'm starting to revise the first part in preparation for beginning the second part, incorporating fixes for nits and other suggestions from all the great reviews. I'll update the Chapters here as a go.

Now Yanos Clansmen have rampaged across the countryside, kidnapped a mysterious girl, and fled back into Abissarra, knowing it is forbidden for Murkana, Gyall, and the Dragoons to follow, but the denizens of the Yanos are about to learn the hard way why they call Murkana and Gyall, Black Dawn and Madlaugher.

|The Dictates of Faith||amy s||Novel||2||n/a||Feb 10, 2014|
Summary:Jaylene never asked to be a leader in her church; she wanted to live a life of service. Then the Lance chose her. The symbol of her Order was more than just a cavalry weapon; it was imbued with the essence of the goddess, Behira. Carrying it meant that Jaylene could call her Order to war. After touching the Lance, Jaylene became a general and she hated it. However, the rank carried a privilege that no one else enjoyed. She was allowed to choose her own priorities, looking for trouble and finding solutions. For a while, she helped a lot of people with the help of a group of friends who called themselves the "Wolves". Then a disaster happened and Jaylene died. Sometimes the second-life is more important than the first. In the world of Behira, miracles are only a breath away and hope is all that keeps the world from ending. Thanks for any time you can spend on this! Amy
