The 13th Quilt: The Memoirs of....

SJ McClanahan

A woman recalls her courtship at the waning edge of Antebellum Tennessee.

It is the summer of 1860, and a young planter's daughter finds herself teetering on the brink of innocence as her freedom, and her future, are stripped from her. She has become a commodity in a crooked land deal, and is faced with a harsh reality: she must marry an older man from Murfreesboro's most secretive family, or her father loses their small plantation.

And yet, despite the turmoil of deceit and betrayal, she learns that a man being born to a name doesn't make him a part of it—and things aren't always as they seem.


The Proposal (or: Why Kerry Me....

Hana Bathir

A bipolar sorcerer takes his girlfriend and a "borrowed" spell to get a dragon's treasure.

I'm a little nervous, which is a feeling I go to great lengths to avoid.

There's an outside chance that this might not work, but it probably will. Either way I'm fine with it. I'm not really nervous about the dragon, so much as will she say yes? And also what's-his-name, that one wizard, wants to kill me. It's all over money, anyway. If we get eaten, the debt issue will be the last thing on my mind; if I get the treasure, I can pay him back, and everybody's happy, right?

RCG Review: Shooting Star by Madison Alexander Okay, before I start into this review I must ask one question: why, oh why are there only four chapters here! Please tell me you have more. You can't just leave me hanging on Davis like this, and Reid waiting out in CA. Where Chris Hemsworth might... view book

HFRG Review of Gone for a Soldier by Kathy Kelly Garlock I can't help but agree with the other comments that this is a well-written and promising piece of work, but in my own words I must say that I'm very impressed with how you have taken a real phenomenon and built such a captivating story.

HFRG Review: Gunpowder by Daniyal Ahmed I've only read through chapter two thus far, but from what I can tell you have a good premise and talent. However, I agree with one of the reviews that mentions the benefits of more research. As I'm sure you know, King James English (especially in the b... view book

Club Nora Review of "Borrowed Light" by Olive Field This is so well-written as a memoir I find it hard to believe that it's fiction. The world and the history are concrete and engaging. Your use of accents and the lyrical approach to the narrative made this distinctly Irish, which drew me firml... view book
