|Big Hearts||MrsPiddles||Novel||3||n/a||Apr 17, 2014|
Summary:It wasn't enough that reckless snowmobile riders smashed into Kimber Blackwell's champion team of Belgian draft horses and her antique sleigh full of happy children. It wasn't enough that the horrible accident not only killed her beautiful horses, it also killed her soul mate, her high school sweetheart, Tim, and caused her late term miscarriage, but it also caused the death of a ten year old child riding in the sleigh. The cold hearted ambulance chasing lawyers, representing the injured parties, realizing that Kimber had been the sole heir to a three hundred acre horse farm in the rich farmland of Pennsylvania, complete with an estate built over three generations, would not settle for mere insurance payments. They took everything. Now Kimber must find herself before she can come to terms with her loss. How can she overcome her irrational fears and learn to trust, to find love again when all she can see is the memory of Tim? Note: I have written mid grade stories up to now, this story has been bubbling up in my head for years, so I'm finally letting her run. I would love feedback on pace, character building, readability, believability, and anything else you would like to tell me about.
|Southern Drift||Rory Noel Hawk||Novel||2||n/a||Mar 29, 2014|
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. ****Previously titled "Fatboy", a title I never figured I'd get to keep since Harley Davidson owns it and I dont want to go through any legal mumbo jumbo getting permission, yadda yadda.****

Summary:Looking any kind of feedback from nits to larger issues.
|A Twist Of Fate||Jax Franklin||Novel||4||n/a||Mar 1, 2014|
Summary:The murder of half-breed, Grady Jackson's family threw his life into turmoil. Added to that, an important decision to allow his Kaylee a year to contemplate marriage to a half-breed will ultimately end badly… Fate dealt Grady a blow that caused him to spiral into years of bitterness and self-pity... After ten years of allowing his demons to control him, he now feels strong enough to confront the past with the hope that he can move on with his life... Interestingly enough, fate has a way of coming full circle, though at the time, we do not always understand the whys and wherefores of it all... Join Grady and his Kaylee on a bumpy road filled with jealousy, hatred, and greed.... Can their love withstand such odds…? Perhaps too many years and too much pain and angst lie in-between to bridge the gap… Although, I tend to believe that where there is love and compassion, so lays the path to the real meaning of love and commitment – and just maybe forever after… Enjoy the journey....!
