Hi, here's an excellent Christian book for you to read/back. It has strong Biblical symbolism in it but it's also a great wacky story. I've spent years and years writing and polishing it to create an easy to read work of art. It's called "The Water Works of Clear Wash City". Hope to see you on authonmy again sometime soon. You can find out more at the website Tim waters.

Hi! My name is Megan and I'm new on here. Trying to get some people to read my book :) if you wanted to read it I would be appreciative. It's called Precious Jewel, if you would like to check it out.

Hi, there! I was hoping that you'd take a look at my middle-grade novel entitled The Fourth Mistake. It's about a girl living a less-than-perfect life and feeling a desperate need for change. I believe it shows the light that shines within all of us, and that sometimes it just needs to be dusted off.

After one year on the site and over 700 reviews, I have accepted many of the suggestions (sometimes, I admit, through gritted teeth) and Apocalypse Then is now fully edited. I believe it is ready for the desk and ask, If you find the time, that you take a look at it. If you then believe that it is good enough, please consider placing it on your desk. All the best DD ;o)

I'm seeking readers and backers for my Mirror In The Sky.

If you comment on and/or back my book I will shelve your book (or any other book you nominate). I will shelve your book EVEN if you don't like my book enough to back it. So you can't lose!

If you would like me to comment on your book also, message me and I will do so

Your premise sounds interesting. I'd like to know if you want to swap comments. I'll read and comment on your submission this weekend, if not before.

Dear Lynn,


The miracle book that will change the whole world history! Who is going to rule all countries in the world within next five years, CUPID (god of sexual love) or Liberty Fairy? Sex or freedom? My book has 45 chapters. To save valuable time, you can read any ONE of the following three topics that may take 30 minutes for each topic.

1) FIRST TOPIC (Freedom and Equal rights for women):--
Teenage girls start Angels Party under holy Angels and fight against Cupid and males with 100 revolutionary ideas in Election Manifesto as 1) Separate Parliament for women to be elected by women only. 2) Compulsory free education till the end of degree for all. 3) Lie-detectors in all courts—judg(e)ment in one day! 4) All politicians must retire at age 60. etc, etc. Read chapters: 8 and 9.
If you are NOT interested in FEMINISM or POLITICAL REFORMS, read the next.

2) SECOND TOPIC (Sexual Revolution):--
Infuriated by Angels’ doctrine of Celibacy, CUPID unleashes sexual frenzy with Tvs showing dozens of tactics to bed hundred types of girls in serials ‘Hear CUPID how to seduce girls!’ and ‘101 honeymoon nights of the bride’—Read 100 pages on Cupid’s tactics on seduction, and the bride’s sexual ecstasy in 6 chapters from 16 to 21.

3)THIRD TOPIC (Final battle):---
To terrorize all girls, Government led by CUPID tries to repress it with ‘Holocaust’ by mass gang-rape of thousands of college hostel girls in the country. To avenge this mass gang-rape, the final battle breaks out. Liberty Fairy and Justice Fairy appear (in girls’ and women’s mind) and lead them in war against Cupid and males. Read the breathtaking final battlefield scenes in two chapters no: 42 and 43. Who wins the war?

If you like any ONE of above three topics, you can hono(u)r me and ‘BACK’ my book. I will reciprocate the same to you. But if this message annoys you, I apologize; you need not bother to reply.

(Author of Third World War)

Hi Lynn
I've been getting some great advice and support recently for my novel SPIN, and I'd be grateful if you'll have a look at it too and tell me what you think. I always return reads and try to offer constructive feedback if you are kind enough to read mine, or I'll go first if you prefer. Do let me know.
All the best
Bob Steele [SPIN]

I was wondering if you’d like to look at my book,
Godmother’s Wand…

Here is a synopsis: Mary Howard plods along in the small city of Baltimore, where unhappy at home, she flings herself into the arms of chance. In mid-air, she encounters an adventure. Can she learn to clean an oven, entertain two hundred guests at the Plaza Hotel, and sweet talk the devil in Hades? Find out in Godmother's Wand.

Thank you, Patricia

Hi Lynn, I've begun reading your book and have put it on my watchlist. Maybe you'd like a look at The Swan Bonnet. It's set in 1920s Alaska when the swan population was endangered. Katherine
