  1. If you could meet any character from any book, who would you get to know? I would love to chat with Hermione Granger from Harry Potter; I feel as though she would have interesting stories and that we could relate to each other easily.
  2. We all have baggage. Real friends help you carry it. It’s 1983 in Boscobel, Wisconsin, in the southwestern corner of the state, known as the Driftless Area. Ellis Sayre is different. He’s a twelve year old orphaned Native American. His adoptive parents lost a son a few years ago and welcomed him to deal with their grief. While stealing day-old bread for a friend in need, Ellis and his two best friends—George and Mason—witness a murder by a local kingpin. Authorities disagree with their story. They call it made up. The boys are trapped, worried for their lives, sending them on a flight to Gr
  3. So I have compiled together a list of amazing novels with brief summary in the video below. Let me know what you think about these novels Have you read any of them? have u seen the movie? Did you like them? thanks
  4. The Sweet Spot, by Anneli Lort, caught my eye recently, during the excitement of The Open Championship, and it's quick ascent into the top 10 of the sports fiction chart, but it is, undeniably, a romance novel. The Sweet Spot tells the tale of strong female lead, Olivia, who is recovering from an unhealthy relationship and an unforgiving heartache. She moves out of busy London to heal in the countryside, taking a career opportunity to ghostwrite a globally famous, golfing legend's autobiography, Sebastian. The setting of Appleton Vale is so beautifully described that t
  5. An old and terrible threat comes back to haunt Mankind. A race of ancient aliens are hell-bent on dominating Earth and replacing humans with their own kind. An ageing but brilliant archaeologist makes a shocking discovery in modern Iraq. A secret meeting occurs between Vampire elders and the US President. Our modern day SAS hero Captain “Bullet Proof Pete” and childhood friend “Vinnie the Terminator” join forces with their American allies to defend Earth at all costs against the alien menace - but our hero is torn apart by guilt for leaving his wife and family. The US President stands alone -
  6. Hopefully this is the right place to ask as there were not many other threads in relation to this. I really like history. I am going to read some non-fiction books (that can be interesting), but I have a feeling that Historical fictionbooks are more fun and gripping? More of a 'cant put it down' book collection as opposed to non-fiction (although I am most likely wrong). There are so many historical fiction books out there that look great (lots of reviews), such as 'Wars of the Roses' by Conn Iggulden, ones by Bernard Cornwell (more medieval). How does one find the great books to read, tha
  7. -Firstly, I just want to say Hello . I am new here and I thought it would be best to introduce myself in my first ever post, as the 'Please Introduce Yourself thread' is no longer working! -Secondly, as my topic title mentions the term non-fiction, I apologize if this is the wrong forum to ask my question, as it's about fiction and non-fiction, so I was not quite sure where to post my thread. *So I apologize if this first post by me looks really boring to and long to read. I just wanted to write some brief info about me and books/ interest in history, before I got to my question. But tha
  8. Hello all, I'm the author of the Remaker Series, a book series I started back in college. My first book Mark of the Remaker was released last January. I've just gotten through finishing the second book and I'm now in the editing phase of the project. To put it humorously and enthusiastically: It’s a science fiction fantasy book series. Think of it as Lord of the Rings meets Steampunk (a sci-fi genre), with a dash of Star Wars (minus the whole galaxy and spaceship bit), and peppered with Pirates of the Caribbean (with a few unknowns. Nothing poisonous…maybe). It's available on Amazon i
  9. My fantasy Ebook 'Secret Code of Magicians' is going free from 20th Feb to 24th February, 2015 Though it is the 3rd volume in the series, 'Magical Ventures of Loli and Lenny,' yet it can be read independently from the first volume and second volume Available at Amazon.co.uk - Please use the link at the top of the page. Also at Amazon.com - Please use the link at the bottom of the page. “Magical Ventures of Loli and Lenny,” is a fantasy series for children and middle grade. Packed with adventure and mystery this series will keep the young readers hooked as they follow the two
  10. Hello everyone, I've recently joined and am hoping to have a good read of the forum over the next few weeks and get to know some of you. However my first post here is to alert anyone who's interested in philosophical fiction, or even slightly bizarre but meaningful fiction :-D that I am the author of 'Ox Herding: A Secular Pilgrimage,' available on Amazon as both an ebook and paperback. It's an adventure story akin to 'Alice in Wonderland,' but for grown-ups, and with meaning. :-D Incidentally, if anyone wants to write a review (which doesn't have to be long or particularly deta
  11. Forgive this preamble to announcing my book release and thanks for bearing with me. In 2004 the novelist Tony Saint lamented, in the Telegraph, that he was not even the fifth best novelist in Waverton after his first novel had failed to reach the shortlist of the annual Waverton Good Read Award. Never heard of the WGRA? You are not alone. A little history, then. A family doctor in the village of La Cadière d’Azure, France, decided it might give his patients something to think about beyond their ailments if he got them all reading and voting on the latest novels. So Le Prix De La Cadière d’Azur
  12. http://www.theguardian.com/books/2013/aug/06/self-publishing-showcase-linda-gillard Interesting article on self publishing. My favourite book by Linda Gillard is A Lifetime Burning. I discovered her when she gave an author talk at a Bookcrossing meetup in Oxford. Because she is a cross genre writer publishers found her difficult to fit into one of their slots and dropped her. She decided to self publish and is doing very well thank you! I was disappointed when her books moved to Kindle as I don't read ebooks, but I have now discovered that she is in paperback once again. I have just orde
  13. Hello from the Backwoods!!! Backwoods is the author of Unremembered, Off Grid, Stronghold (coming soon!) and This Land We Call Home (writing in progress).
