Hi! Would you be interested in a book swap? Mila takes place during 43 AD when Rome conquered Britain, taking hostage a young mother, Mila, and selling her as a gladiator. After surviving a battle in the arena that was supposed to end her life by using the fencing skills her father taught her when she was young, Mila's master Servius Mummius Philo decides to make her a deal. If she fights for him and wins back his status as an entertainer, he will grant her freedom so she can find her son. Mila agrees, not knowing that in order to win her freedom, she'll have to win the respect of her fellow gladiators, reject a lovers advance, and unveil lies that could end her chances of finding her son once and for all...

My name is Peter Reich, special investigator to the Pope and former captain of the Swiss Guard.

I need your help.

A few months ago, I was approached by a young Spanish woman who claimed to have evidence of a U.S.-led plot to assassinate the Pope and take control of the Vatican.

My son is dead. My wife is missing. And my only friend has turned against me.

I am alone and in hiding.

I do not trust anyone, perhaps I can trust you.

This is my story.

Hello Lisa,

Hope you are well. Maybe you would like to try out my new satire, Doghouse Blues. Here is an endorsement:

I was attracted to Doghouse Blues from the pitch alone because it was so very different. There are so many budding writers out there who want to earn the same sort of money as J K Rowling by writing exactly the same kind of book and , to be frank, I am getting a bit tired of it.
This, on the other hand, struck me as being an original piece of work. The product of a lively mind and written by someone who is an excellent observer of the real world out there and who knows how to translate his observations into print. Just the right amount of dialogue, which carries the story along well.
I have not read the complete book (yet) but have dipped into it fairly freely to see if the momentum is maintained. It certainly is.
Philip John

Looking forward to reading your comments on the Doghouse Blues webpage.

All the best,

Clive

Hello, my name is James Revino. I am the author of ‘Hollow.’ I was wondering if you might be able to take a look at my work and tell me what you think, good and bad. Any critique would be much appreciated, it is the best way to improve. Of course, if you wanted to back it, that would be great as well. Have a good day, and thanks for your time.

Hi,Good morning,

Please read this mail attentively. A France Based investor from your country who was a business tycoon,a cocoa Merchant and a contractor with Ivory Coast Government who died in a plane crash on Tuesday August 16, 2005 in Venezuela has come to the limelight in our bank because since 2005 that he died his portfolio and investment of 9.8 Million Pounds has not been touch because no name next-of-kin was found in his bio-data form, If you are familiar with Investment Banking affairs,those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity with some levels of detachment from conventional processes - now this investment has generated a huge accrued interest to the amount of 1.3 Million British Pounds after this end of the year general auditing because he was operating a pounds account. The bank management has therefore authorized me as the Funds Manager/Managing Director of the Investment Banking Division of this Bank - Standard Chartered Bank (www.standardchartered.com)to locate any living relative of this investor to apply for an inheritance claim so that the accrued interest can be paid to the family of the late Depositor which is inline with the banking rules, ethics and operatives. This is where your name came in and this mail is at your door step.

Pls contact me immediately so that I can furnish you with the detail. Mind you, I do not care whether you are truly related to this investor or not but for the fact that you know nothing about this money before and I am the one that comes to you - we are sharing this money 50/50. and it didn't end there, the bank will only as of this moment based on your request release the accrued interest of 1.3 Million British Pounds to you as the next-of-kin which simply means the investment will still remain and every year you will be collecting the interest on the investment which we will be sharing 50/50 subsequently, I will see to it that this arrangement work-out perfectly cos it is risk free as I have taken

I'm terrible at advertising, but still, I know I have a good story. Please if you could find the time, come read it. I would love to add more material to my own read list too, so yes, tell me about your story, I am eager to set up trades, and I often read entire stories and do in depth reviews. Also, if you need someone to help you out, I know a few resources for book workshops, agents, publishers. Yes, I know where all of it is, I just don't know what to do with it.

Well anyway, here's where I actually plug my story:

The Case of Thomas Crain: Lost and Found.

Missing: Thomas Crain, age 9
Missing: Jessica’s mind, age 140
Young Kyle, the son of the president of an entire planet, the most feared in the known galaxy, has come to earth to hide from a rebellion on his home world. He is accompanied by his body guard, a girl named Jessica with power unparalleled among their kind.
Jessica, being a tad on the crazy side, drags her charge to a police station and grabs the photo of the first kid she sees and begins obsessing over finding him. Nothing odd about that, right? Now the pair embark on a journey desperate to figure out why they’re on said journey, and to find the lost Thomas, respectively. Worse yet, they’re only 100 and 140 years old, mere children! Well at least they look like mere children, and by their race’s standards they’re just that. Now they must fight corrupt cops, monsters and even powerful organizations to find one lost child they’ve never met. In the end, both fear they could lose the other, but neither will give up this mission. They must find Thomas… but why?

Please come and read my story, The Case of Thomas Crain: Lost and Found.

Hi Lisa. I'm finding it hard to get fiction readers to read my book, as it's a biography. I read and comment on so much and only get 'I don't do biography' in return. So I'm looking through interesting bioography books to hunt for read swaps that I will enjoy and hope the author will take a look at mine. If you want a read swap I'd be very happy. Your book looks very interesting, but I have wasted so much time that I'm checking who would be up for it.

Narcissus wrote 602 days ago   

Greetings, Lisa,
Below is a short "tease" from the opening of chapter 10 of Isles End. If you like it, maybe you'll take a closer look....?

* * * Abaddon’s crimson eyes glared down from above and watched as a seemingly unimportant group of men left the new offices of Advanced Bio-Cell. His scarlet gown billowed around him as though huge gusts of wind supported his position there in the sky. But it was his own mastery over the very air that kept him hovering high above.
He was, after all, a prince of the air.
In league with the many that had long ago inherited the space above and below and all around the small repressed planet, he accepted his position as a poor substitute for the grandeur he once enjoyed.
His vermilion face and body pulsed with a dull glow, giving his rich dark form an enchanting and irresistible appeal. Of all the many facades he had created for himself, this was currently his favorite. He was provided with a measure of glee when reflecting on the human expectation of how a creature such as himself might appear. But the expression of his sharp cold features confirmed he was no average spirit. He exuded power and calmness. Fierce, elegant and admirable, he studied his surroundings with keen awareness. * * *

Thanks, Joe :o)

Hello there, Lisa!

In the mood for a fast paced read? Perhaps you would be interested in hazarding a few chapters of 2175! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be on the edge of your seat! Follow Angelo Rodriguez as he is confronted with the age old question, “Can one person make a difference?” As his eyes are opened to the dystopic world around him, Angelo is forced to choose sides in what looks to be an imminent war between those who rule and those who wish to fight back.

I would truly appreciate any time you donate to reading 2175, and would be immensely thankful for any stars, feedback, watches or shelves you can spare. I’m always good for a book swap, and I will always comment back. It has already risen 4000 positions in three weeks with strong support from this community. Your support could push it even higher!

I hope you can drop into the world of 2175 soon. Thanks!

Hi Lisa, fellow memoirist, just peeked at your book and I saw so much of me in that first chapter, the first paragraph! Would you be interested to swap a few chapters?

Here's a bit about my true-life memoir:

A 38-year-old mother. Two young daughters. A father left behind. An immovable adversary. No Kiss Goodbye is the story of my unexpected escape from communist Romania in 1981, at fourteen, along switchbacks that months later led to America.

Here’s the link: http://www.authonomy.com/books/39263/no-kiss-good-bye. If you find it worthy of your support, a few days' backing would mean the world to me. Thank you so very much!

Hi Lisa,

Just a comment on copy write. You may have a problem with using Pepsi's brand name. Look into it. My wife used a lot of song lyrics in her first book and decided it was better to rewrite them. I look forward to reading more. Let me know if you post more chapters. Thank you for writing this.

My wife Jenny-B has tow books up that you might enjoy. Have a look. "Reflections" deals with women and self image. You may find common ground there. Her new book is quite amazing - Liminal Lights. I won't wreck the surprise ... very cool idea.

Enjoy your weekend! JC
