|WHO'S NEXT PLEASE?||Ray Johnstone||Short Story||4||1.04||Jun 18, 2013|
Summary:When is it time to go?
|The Do-Over Bride||K. Ellis||Novel||4||n/a||Jun 17, 2013|
Summary:Jocelyn Brooks is about to take the matrimonial plunge. Again. But this time, she wants to do it right. On the day of her wedding, she looks back on her four most pivotal relationships and winds up discovering how they've helped mold her into the woman she is today- the woman who is about to marry her future husband, who may also be a man from her past. This is my first novel. I'd love feedback on content as well as formatting since I've never been trained/educated in either. My only "research" has been reading other chick-lit so any feedback is appreciated! Thank you!
|Fatboy||Rory Noel Hawk||Novel||0||n/a||Jun 15, 2013|
Summary:Fate has a funny way of unfolding, especially for those who try to escape it. It’s Fight or Flight time for twenty year old Sabrina. For more than a decade after her father’s death, she’s endured both emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her depressed mom and abusive brother, Richard. It’s during a brutal beating from Richard on her nineteenth birthday that Sabrina gets a disturbing glimpse at all the rage she’s been suppressing. It lurks there, trying to seduce her into an act of revenge she knows she’ll regret. This glimpse is the catalyst that ultimately fuels Sabrina’s desperate decision to escape the only home she’s known. After more than a year of saving up, Sabrina sets out to define the long-overdue liberation from her toxic family. However, her elation to be free doesnt last long when she realizes she's not that great at independence. Dropped off in the middle of 'Bumfuck, Louisiana', she becomes inexplicably drawn to Mason, the first ‘normal’ person she meets after three long nights on the road. Even around Mason's deceptively easy-going nature, Sabrina begins to question whether leaving her home was enough to escape becoming a version of herself she feared most. **** Mason’s a good guy, anchored by a less than stellar past. Impulsive mistakes from when he was seventeen have kept him from fulfilling a promise he made to an important person in his life. Older and wiser at twenty-one years old, Mason embarks on a journey to North Carolina, determined to set things right. Just as he begins to realize that facing the past can be a lot harder than embracing an unknown future, a girl walks up to him at a Louisiana gas station out of the blue needing a ride. It doesn’t take long before Mason is reacquainted with his impulsive nature as he struggles to keep up with unpredictable Sabrina. Now if he can just get them to Raleigh, N.C. in one piece, he can finally start over. There, he plans to confront all the obligations his poor decision making in the past has been holding him back from accomplishing. There’s just one little problem--some of those past ‘mistakes’ are not as willing to let sleeping dogs lie. •••••••••warning•••••••••• This story contains vulgar/expletive language throughout, gun violence, and touches on the topic of (non-sexual) physical abuse themes. This is by no means 'erotica', but sex/sexuality is a pretty constant theme.
|What Price Love||Jax Franklin||Novel||2||n/a||Jun 14, 2013|
Summary:Historical Romance / The Old West What Price Love begins the four book saga of the Allister Family. The Allister series starts with Chance and Breanna’s love story, followed by her son's stories, of which one son is an adopted half-breed. What Price Love is a woman's journey into first love, loss, tragedy, and the promise of new beginnings. Along the way, Breanna learns that life with all its heartache can once again flourish with steadfast love. Breanna’s devotion to her sons gives her the strength to persevere over many years of heartache at Luke’s hands. Chance, her childhood hero, who has loved Breanna from afar all these years, shows Breanna that she does not have to settle for what society deems is proper propriety. Gossipmongers be damned, because a lady should not have to be abused and ridiculed just because it is the husbands right to do so if he chooses!
|TELL ME A SECRET||Ann Everett||Novel||6||n/a||Jun 14, 2013|

|Shadow Wolf: Remembrance||Natalee||Novel||1||n/a||Jun 6, 2013|
Summary:SHADOW WOLF BOOK 1: Remembrance: In book one my heroine will travel back in time with the help of her Guardian, a giant spirit wolf, to vanquish a great evil in hopes of breaking an ancient curse. But the evil wasn't defeated, only the mortal form it took. This evil's true objective was to use the heroine to free its master, The Arch Ruler, from the enchantment that has kept him trapped for over a thousand years, for she is the only one with the power to break the seal of Ardun, a Superior order of immortals. Sophia considers her life pretty much normal, that is until she befriends a gigantic wolf, who happens to push her down a waterfall. Technically, the fall wasn’t so bad and she would have forgiven her four legged friend, but when she emerges from the water, she finds herself several hundred years in the past, in Scotland of all places, abandoned by the wolf. Lucky for her, she is rescued by a handsome Scotsman, or so the arrogant lout says. Really, what’s wrong with the man? One minute he drives her mad with his kisses, the next he accuses her of being a witch. Cameron’s nights are plagued by dreams of a spirit, begging him to remember something long forgotten, and his days are tormented by a lovely stranger, who very well could be a spy from the enemy clan. What is a laird to do? Keeping the lass will only anger his mistress and cause him great distraction at the time of war, but the thought of sending her away leaves him barren. When Sophia saves his life, he learns that maybe there is more to life than empty passion and the sound of clashing steel.

I tried 'other' but didn't get any response so now I'm trying 'romance' although I don't know if it fits typical romance model very well. Opinions on best genre would be appreciated as would any comments on story.
