The Book Bazaar / KB Authors: Coming-of-Age Novels
« on: April 25, 2017, 05:39:21 pm »
I'll start off! I normally write YA/paranormal stories. This is my first dip into the ordinary human world.

DESCRIPTION: It's that nothing age--too young to actually do anything but old enough to want to do everything. So, we wait, always chasing tomorrow. But sometimes, there is no tomorrow. That realization hit me hard, a real epiphany. I knew I had to do something to make it all worthwhile, and not just for myself. But also for her.

As a fan of slice of life/coming-of-age/adventure books (ie. Catcher in the Rye), and movies like Paper Towns, Edge of Seventeen, or any 80s John Cusack/teen flick really, I loved Chasing Fireflies. -- Joe Vercillo

On the surface this is a fun story about teenage hijinks, but lurking in the background is a consideration of some of life's big questions... While an obvious fit for the young adult reader, it's a story that will appeal to an older crowd, too. Even grandfathers like me. -- Books & Pals
Chasing Fireflies will keep you entertained from start to finish. Imogen Rose handles a tough subject with humor and care. -- Allirea's Realm

Chasing Fireflies is a captivating glimpse into the life of a teen on the verge of adulthood. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment! -- Vickie Boehnlein

Awesome cover, right? It was done by our very own Phatpuppyart.

I read somewhere that there is a way to link your books so that you don't have to post individual links to the various international stores. Does anyone know how to do this?

With all the new editors available to us, how do we judge which are competent? As far as I know, anyone can set up as an editor, so how do we tell that we are hiring someone who is up to the task? I know most of them do sample edits, but to be honest, I couldn't judge a sample edit... that's why I need an editor.   ;D

Recommendations are definitely something to look at, but what else should we be looking out for?

Das sagen die Kritiker
»Ich liebe es, wie die Zeitreise in diesem Buch eingesetzt wird. Ich habe noch nie erlebt, dass es auf diese Weise gemacht wird, und ich glaube, dass es dem Genre Übersinnlicher Liebesroman eine originelle Wendung gibt.« - Amanda Hocking
»Ich glaube, es hat einen sehr cleveren Aufhänger und vereint eine ganze Reihe von Genres - Jugendbuch, Fantasy, Science Fiction. Es ist schwierig, auf dem Hochseil so vieler Genres zu balancieren, ohne auf einem von ihnen den Halt zu verlieren, aber ich will verflucht sein, wenn du das nicht mit Bravour durchgezogen hast.« Terry Goodman (Leitender Lektor bei Amazon Publishing)
»Twilight trifft Die Frau des Zeitreisenden!« - Stephen Windwalker

»Portal.... wenn die Liebe nur der Anfang der Geschichte ist« - KindleObsessed


Komm und finde mich vor zwei Jahren…

Sechs Worte, die den Eishockey spielenden Wildfang Arizona in eine alternative Dimension geschleudert haben.

Plötzlich lebt sie das Leben einer umschwärmten Cheerleaderin. Sie wird aus dem glücklichen Leben mit ihrem Vater gerissen und in ein neues, fremdes Leben mit ihrer verhassten Mutter gestoßen.

Alle kennen sie als Arizona Darley, aber die ist sie nicht. Sie ist Arizona Stevens.

Während sie versucht, Antworten zu finden, stehen für sie nur zwei Dinge fest: dass ihre Mutter Olivia irgendwie für alles verantwortlich ist - und dass sie ihr altes Leben zurückhaben möchte.

Bis sie Kellan trifft...

Writers' Cafe / AWESOME review from KindleObsessed!
« on: December 02, 2011, 01:10:30 pm »
Thank you so much, KO!  :-*

For full review:


I have this little black book I carry everywhere in my purse, it’s small, tattered and to most people looks like it is filled with junk, but to me it’s important. See…a few years ago (ok…like 15)  when I wrote my first book I strived to be just like everyone else.  I thought conformity is what the world wanted, (an a-typical 3 part story with exactly 2 upsets and 1 very dramatic ending.) Then one day when I was curled up in a chair in the library I spotted (laying on the floor in a corner) this beautifully bound book with gold inlays and pages so old they looked as though they would crack when turning them. Curiosity obviously getting the best of me I picked it up.  On the first page I saw this:

  “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” – Herman Melville

That one phrase changed my life, AND my perception of what people expected.  So I wrote it down, in a little black book, and put it in my purse.

Now, I can’t tell you exactly how many times I have read that 1 phrase since I wrote it down, but every time I read a book, and then bask in the brilliance of it’s originality I think of Herman and his wise advice. THEN…I think of the authors that exude this quality more than most.

Imogen Rose is one of these authors.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Welcome to Bonfire Academy!

Set in the foothills of the alpine mountains in St.Moritz, this exclusive private school caters to a special kind of student. Enter at your own risk... but if you are human, you may not want to enter at all.

WARNING: This YA story is set in a school for paranormals who are very different from normal human teens. Thus, the language and some scenes might not be appropriate for younger YA readers. Recommended for those sixteen and above.

The Book Corner / Looking for dystopian YA fiction by Indie authors
« on: September 26, 2011, 06:14:57 am »
Hi! I am looking for dystopian YA books (like the Hunger Games and Divergent), but by Indie (self-published) authors. I'd love some suggestions. Thanks!


Louise Voss, 42, shot to the top of the Kindle charts after publishing the book in digital form herself after being rejected by literary agents.

It attracted the attention of publishers HarperFiction, which offered her a six-figure, four-book deal.

As a result, her ebook Catch Your Death will also be printed and stocked in bookshops in the traditional way.

Writers' Cafe / Agents: Your experience?
« on: June 03, 2011, 05:48:08 am »
I was reading an interesting blog post about agents and wondered what your experience has been...

1. Do you have an agent? Do you want one?
2. How did you find him/her? Did your agent find you?
3. Has your agent shopped your book?
4. Do you feel an agent is important?
