Help a new author get a great (at least I think so) new book get noticed! If you're planning a vacation to Disney, know someone who is, or even if you just want to learn more about Walt Disney World, PLEASE check out (and review!) my new Disney travel guide called: Discover the Magic: The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Walt Disney World.

http://www.amazon.com/Discover-Magic-Ultimate-Insiders-ebook/dp/B0087OR36U/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1338987315&sr=8-3

Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Hi there. My book contains 21 short stories and 13 illustrations (including the cover).

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Albania-The-Moon-ebook/dp/B0089FB8CM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339261619&sr=8-1

A hard-hitting, yet poetic, collection of short stories laced with dark humour and wry social observation. A vivid cast of characters are brought to life in tales of lives on the margins, from the frustrated and disaffected of London flat shares and menial jobs, to the joy of clubland and football miracles, demented dogs and underground voices.

"Jimmy Wilde's writing is as crisp as Raymond Carver's having, refreshingly, more in common with the American short story than with the turgid canon of the British short story."

If you're interested in Southern literary fiction, please check out RILEY'S BLUES.

http://www.amazon.com/Rileys-Blues-ebook/dp/B008738TSC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1339481272&sr=1-1

Wade Riley’s dream of country music stardom is about to come true: Theo Sweet—a rich businessman with connections in Nashville—has taken a liking to him. But before the dream can fully materialize, the sinister reality of his benefactor’s bizarre private life forces Wade to choose between the fame and fortune he covets and the well-being of Theo Sweet’s beautiful daughter Mara, whose Zen-like utterances may be genuine expressions of wisdom and affection, or merely the deceptive and spurious by-product of the schizophrenia that so tragically haunts her. Accompanied into the dark underworld of the rich and the insane by an ex-college-football-sensation-turned-philosopher, Mara’s fiery stepmother, and a legendary bluesman, Wade writes a country ballad that’s sure to send readers reaching for a Bible, a bottle, or both.

My name is J.J. Knight. Here are my two books:

The Seattle Massacre:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Seattle-Massacre-Ripper-Series/dp/1475215789/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1340378074&sr=8-11&keywords=the+ripper+case+series

Trails of Blood:

http://www.amazon.com/Trails-Blood-Ripper-Series-Volume/dp/1477598715/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1340378074&sr=8-10&keywords=the+ripper+case+series

Description:

The story starts in Seattle on October 1st, 2010. A family of three were found murdered in their home. Homicide Detective Richard Holcomb is assigned to the case. However, it quickly becomes more that just your average serial killer case. The killer, known only as Jack "The Ripper", challenges Richard directly, putting his own family at risk.

I would put a description for book 2, but that would incline for spoilers.

Like a number of others, my suspense novels just seem to be sitting there, although readers and reviewers generallly love them.

Check out The Lightning File; In the book, reporter Josh Radley discovers an Arabic file holding the key to a terrorist plot targeting US interests from Canadian soil. Just when he needs to concentrate on breaking the mysterious file, he finds himself frustrated with his marriage and attracted to a beautiful Pakistani psychiatrist.

I too have published my first novel on Kindle. Mystery, action, romance.

http://www.amazon.com/The-Armageddon-Bug-ebook/dp/B00825DISG/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1339611619&sr=1-1

I also was published back in 1996 and 1997 on two real estate related books now both out of print.
"The Complete Home Buyers Bible"
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000WE45SM and the other

"Save $50,000 On Your New Home"
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0471155624

I lost both books when my computer crashed several years ago and can't find the backups.
I have the copyrights reverted to me and would like to post on Kindle but don't have an electronic copy. Were you able to obtain one from your publisher or were you smarter than me and kept your backups? billmolloy2@gmail.com

This is my first novel now on Kindle. My reviews have been great from my friends and so far one from someone that sounds like he knows what he is talking about. He pointed out that my editing was poor and I agree. I edited myself, not a good job. Although, he did like the book and said he was "hooked". Mystery, action, romance.
I would appreciate you avid readers out there to preview the book and offer an honest opinion. Much appreciated. Also, it appears that writing a series may be the way to go? I offered this one for free on Kindle, 1300+ free downloads and I agree, doesn't do much for the bottom line. Wet the appetite with one and write several more?

I am having a hard time promoting my book as well. I can't think of any other way to promote it besides through my facebook friends.

I use Twitter, Youtube and Facebook to promote my work. I managed to get people to buy a few copies on the first day (Rey de Noches) although I have to continue doing what I am doing.

I want to announce that I have two Ebooks for download. They are ninety-nine cents each. The first one is "Modern Day Parables and Dreams" by Thomas and Christine Schrader. It can be used as a great 37 day devotional that is interesting to read and it will promote spiritual growth that will lead you to a more fulfilling and closer walk with the Lord Jesus.

The download address is http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Day-Parables-Dreams-ebook/dp/B007CJV3Y4/ref=la_B007DJNGJI_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1342024506&sr=1-1

Also I have an ebook "Soul Winner's Pocket Guide." It is easy to read and fits in your pocket. It comes in handy when you are witnessing for the Lord. It has Scripture that answers the hard to answer questions that people have and it also has the Scripture for the Roman's Road to lead a person to Christ. Easy and convenient to carry in your pocket or purse. A handy and easy tool for witnessing. The dowload address is

Just had my first novel accepted and published on KIndle - The Silence and the Tears. It languished for years in a drawer, though I had a few kind comments from traditional publishers, even a really nice one from a literary agent, so now I have set it free on Amazon. If you're a fan of time travel stories please check it out. Power to all your pens!
