I've completely given up with this thread (people aren't complying and making it easy AT ALL). If you want to be added to the library ask me via my blog. Should be listed if you click on my name.

"It was when Joe come back from the dead our troubles begun, I reckon. Things was none too cheery 'fore then, of course, what with us thinking him drownded, Tom and me, but... well, it'd've been better all round if he'd just stayed dead. Them was the fun times, I'll allow, when I think what come later..."

Two boys hide in a graveyard at midnight so that when devils come to claim the soul of a man buried the previous day they can fling a dead cat at them, curing one of the boys of his warts. Such, strange to recall, was the incident that set in train the central narrative of Mark Twain's classic novels of childhood in the West of the 1840s, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

"The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves," explained Twain in his preface to Tom Sawyer. But what if all those superstitions were true?

Huck takes the principal characters of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and sets their lives in motion once more - this time in an enchanted Missouri where being barked at by a stray dog or serenaded by a whippoorwill really is a sure sign that you will die, where hairballs from ox stomachs are powerful amulets that foretell the future, where touching a snakeskin or looking at the moon over your left shoulder will bring down bad luck, and where every wind that stirs the trees and mist that clouds the Mississippi is thick with the voices of ghosts.

A nighttime trip down the river ends in disaster for Huck and Tom when their raft overturns and their best friend, Joe Harper, is swept away to certain death. Stranded on Jackson's Island, a series of mishaps enforces their stay until they learn the terrible truth: that Lady Miz, the spirit of the river, feels cheated and has sent Joe back to fetch his friends - any way he can.

But as if a ghostly Joe Harper wasn't enough to contend with, another Joe is back in town - Injun Joe. If this bloodthirsty bandit discovers that Huck and Tom know his secrets a vengeful Mississippi could become the least of their worries.

Many a twist, turn and torment must be overcome before Huck and Tom confront their demonic antagonists and fight to save their lives - and their souls.

Read Huck here - available free until 12 April.

My swashbuckling Renaissance revenge tale Arise, Black Vengeance is also available to download (price at time of posting £1.32).

PS: Thanks for your initiative, Louise!

Genres are difficult for the writer to decide on! These have been included by others under "Romance", whereas I would prefer to think of them as "Literary Fiction". They're not in the traditional HEA mould, and one (Flowers for Alys) has been suggested as a YA story. If they don't fit the requirements, I'll understand.

Wild Honey is a small, quiet love story involving two people who might have nothing in common, or everything. They meet first as children, then grow up into different worlds - and meet again by accident.

A Day to Go Gently tells the story of one woman's journey through life, as she remembers it over the course of one day, which happens to be the longest day of the year. Her story begins on a small farm and continues through childhood, leaving school to go to work, and meeting a young man who becomes a major part of her long lifetime, taking up a fair slice of the story.

Flowers for Alys is a bit different, and set further back in time. It concerns what might appear to be an ordinary family, although in fact the people and the way they came to live together are anything but ordinary. The events which overtake them all, leading them to unexpected endings, may be caused by ignorance, prejudice - or simply looking the wrong way at the wrong time.

When the Snow Refused to Fall is about a young boy named Tom, who loves Christmas and snow and all that the season ought to bring. His mother is a lone parent, a mature student and has more complicated thoughts about the whole thing. Tom makes a wish and tells Father Christmas about it - then changes his mind. That's when things begin to get more tangled than ever.

In the Image of Ravenna Ravenna is no longer young. In fact when she sees her own reflection, she feels as though she is turning into her mother, with whom she lived until the latter's death. She ekes out a precarious living through the skills in her own hands, forced by ever-incoming bills to be always on the alert for new clients for her drawings and paintings.
Edward has also reached his middle years. On the death of his mother he left the house they had shared for so long and moved closer to the university where he lectures in History. He is liked by his students, who refer to him affectionately as "The Prof", although he has not yet reached those giddy heights in his career.
Both live alone. And yet . . . someone watches over one of them.

I also have a non-fiction book about the history of a local church: St James the Less, Penicuik 1882 - 1982

They're all available in paperback or for Kindle.

Done.
I've added everything under 50,000 words to novellas, and those over to their genre.

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Apr 2012 11:23:42 BDT
Looks great Louise, just one question. Your website says it's a bookstore as well. My two books in your list are in the Select program which means I can only sell through Amazon whilst they are in Select. Is that a conflict? Or are you an affiliate with Amazon. If it is a conflict, then you'll need to pull down those two titles. Would appreciate clarity on this.

Love to shop says:
It's not a book store. I provide an opportunity for people to buy from the links given to me by the author. So, providing I was given the PURCHASE LINK TO AMAZON this won't be any problem.

Have you clicked on your book to see where it takes you? Maybe you should check I had the correct link? Let me know. :)

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Apr 2012 11:50:51 BDT
Thanks, Louise, that's a great idea. I don't have a website at the moment, but I am working on that and will make sure that appropriate links are made. (This is one of the reasons I haven't yet created the site - so many things on my list of "to incorporate"!).

For my own part:

A series of heroic fantasy novels:

The Death of Kings (The Count of Trall)
The Demon's Consort (The Count of Trall)
Fields of Battle (The Count of Trall)

Cheers!

Lynne says:
Thank you, Louise. You probably already have mine but:
Children's fantasy;
Gertie Gets it Right (eventually)
Zac's Destiny

Posted on 9 Apr 2012 13:30:56 BDT
Love to shop says:
Marcus - you're up.
Lynne - I have Gertie, but didn't have Zac. They are both in YA now, or should I put them in children's fiction?

Bill says:
My new fantasy novel, Fish Stocks Limited (The Infinity Fish Trilogy) is a tale of fish, love and rum on the mythical world of Expiscor. Follow Ambrosius Codwich, a fisherman caught by fate when he falls out of his treetop world into the mist below. Things fantastic show their tail-fin in the turbid mists, and soon Ambrosius is caught up in a maniacal mission to hunt for the elusive Infinity Fish.

Also, I have a short story about what happens when luck isn't so random (I guess you could put that under the "paranormal" heading). It's called 3 + 3 and is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!

If you could add these to your list I would be grateful.
