Hi Arlene,
I just wanted to ask you if you could help me raise some money for various children's charities. I have written an ebook (Nasus Reklaw & the Never Ending Orange Grove) for children and all the proceeds will be donated to help children with cancer related illnesses and for those who need foster care. If you could find time to read my sample chapters and possibly review/bookshelf the book at you earliest convenience I would be truly grateful. The book is available on Amazon and if you would like to know more about the book and the charities involved please visit

Best wishes
Ryan xx

This is my first book, the death of my son gave me the strength to start writing it. It is all real, but sometimes, it reads as a fiction. Incredible stories.Please take the time to check it out and give me very needed feedback and a little help to get noticed by the publishers. Thank you

Hey there, Arlene. My investigative piece ‘THE CASE OF THE DROWNING MEN: Investigating the Smiley Face Serial Murder Theory’ is being featured this month in Crime Magazine, a leading resource for followers of true crime. I’ve also previewed it now on Authonomy. You up for solving some murders…?

(And if you hate the book, then please consider backing the other truly excellent ones on my shelf—tons of talented writers on this site who could really use some extra support!)

Kind regards to you, and best wishes—

Hi Arlene,
Thank you for your continued support of Deshay of the Woods. It especially comes at a great time now as I’m making a push toward the desk. It’s been stuck in what I call the “20s Limbo” for some time, so I’m calling upon those who have supported it in the past for help (assuming they still find the book worthy). However, in that process, I don’t want to take for granted your support. It means a whole heap and I’m humbled by it.
Thank you so much.
All the best and happy writing!
(Deshay of the Woods)

Arlene, You left my book WHO KILLED THE PRESIDENT a favorable comment last fall, but I notice you didn't back it. Would you consider doing that this spring? My book reached the top 20 but now is falling backward. Thanks so much if you can find the space on your shelf for even one day. Wanttobeawriter.

There is now a Children's Reading Group and we would like you to join. Benedict Brown and I have set it up to bring some much-needed attention to the many children's authors on this site. Please invite the others you know and we'll be delighted to welcome you to the group.

Words cannot express how thankful I am to you for all the support you’ve given me in helping me to reach Harper Collins’ desk! In the past 2 years I have made so many friends and learned so much and it is those friendships and knowledge that I appreciate the most now. No matter what happens in the review I appreciate and am thankful for you! I want you to know that I will be remaining active on the site. If you make a press for the desk please let me know and I will find a way to get you a permanent backing.

I also know that you’ll be looking to fill the void my book is leaving on your shelf soon and I’d like to recommend two of my favorite books for you to take a look at! Both of these ladies are wonderful with read-swaps and have helped me immensely in editing!


T.Donna Robison has written a true-life story, No Kiss Good-bye, about her escape from Communist Romania in the early 1980s and it is such an important and inspiring read! Here is her short pitch!

The consul proclaimed our sentence: "As long as I live, you will not enter the United States."

Copy this link and put it in your browser to take a closer look and make an amazing friend!


Cara Goldthorpe has written an inspiringly vivid fantasy novel, The Awakening: Dawn of Destruction, cleverly exploring the plight of the human race - in all its weakness and glory. Here is her short pitch!
It was coming. A plague of darkness greater than ever before...
She had to stop it. But she didn’t even know who she was.

Copy this link and put it in your browser to take a closer look and make another amazing friend!

I cannot express to you enough the value how having these two ladies as your friends! Please consider them to replace my place on your shelf!

Have an amazing day! I’ll be around!

Dear Arlene,
Mrs Maginnes is Dead is a comic murder mystery that has driven many authonomites to fits of hysterics. It features Byzantine gold, a Gypsy, a homicidal goat, five unstable sisters hell bent on getting their hands on said gold and getting rid of said goat with the help of said Gypsy, communist transvestites, a Shakespeare-quoting grave robber, a valorous detective hell bent on stopping this nonsense, true love, and a purple and pink plaid couch.
Won't you have a look? A book on your shelf is soon going to get a medal, and I am sure that a change in decor would lighten up the room
I return all reads, although not quickly, with careful, thought out, witty and sometimes even helpful comments.

I could truly use your support by you placing me on your bookshelf for the next 3 days to assure that I make the editors desk. I won't forget the favor.

ClaireLyman wrote 747 days ago   

I wanted to say thank you! At some point in the last year you've left a comment on Inevitable, and it's now in the top five, which is exciting :) and it's partly thanks to you. 
If you liked it enough to back it, I'd really value another few days on your shelf - the top five is a precarious place! (I've already slipped from 2 to 4!)
If we'd agreed a read swap and I owe you a comment, please nudge me - I'm hopeless at keeping lists but do intend to get to them all!!
Thanks again!

Hi Arlene, wondering if you'd be interested in a read swap.

Mine is an epic fantasy tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, warriors and assassins as they are faced with challenges of a changing, fantastic world.

Please get back to me if you're interested.

All the best.

Hi Arlene,
Can you give a friendly Lion a hand till Sunday? :-)

Scott Toney wrote 751 days ago

Have a fantastic day!

As The Withering is about to make the review desk I was hoping you would consider putting my new paranormal thriller “Lykaia” in its place afterwards. I am set to begin March at #1 but books have fallen from the position before. I would truly appreciate your support even for a few days.

These are just a few of the comments Lykaia has received.

- “This is one of the best written and orchestrated paranormal novels I have read on or off Authonomy…..”

- “… is a great example of a horror/fantasy tale told well…”

- “This. Is. A. Fantastic. Read.”

- “I can honestly say that I would go into a shop and buy this without a second thought.”

- “Lykaia is a stunning read. Gripping. Chilling. And loaded with suspense.”

- “My first werewolf book. Are they all this good?”

I am always happy to return the read for honest comments and backings.

Kind regards,

Arlene, I commented on and backed Treasure Kings nearly 3 months ago. Wondering if you'd have the time to take a look at mine: Who Killed the President? I'd appreciate it a lot if you could. Wanttobeawriter.

Hello gifted writer and future best selling Author. I would like to take this time to personally invite you to come read my new book. I can assure you that my book is truly unlike anything you will find here on Authonomy. If you enjoy it, please support my efforts by backing it. I will read your work and support it if it is good. Thank you kindly and have a blessed day

I noticed that you've supported a good friend of mine's book, The Book of The Forsaken, and was wondering if I could convince you to take a look at my book, The Ark of Humanity, and consider lending it your support as well. Here's the pitch.

God flooded the earth to annihilate humanity's sins. What if that sinful race didn't die when floodwaters covered them but instead adapted to breathe water?

Let me know what you think. Have a wonderful day!
