Let the adventures begin!

As of today, entries are officially being accepted for the March 2016 contest, "On An Adventure!"

As a reminder, here is the original blog entry, including instructions on what the terms of contest entry and final prizes are. Y'all have two weeks to get your entries in, but with us utilizing the Kudos system for votes there is a minor advantage to posting earlier, though not as much as you might think! (Just look at the last contests' entries to see THAT!)

Is there a sequel to ....

.... Ellie Dauber's "Bikini Beach: Purse Snatchers"

This excerpt is why I ask if there is sequel

The Boss was in her office working on some papers when there was a knock on the door. She looked up from a bill of lading. “Come in, Felicia.”

Felecia Ormand walked in and sat in a chair opposite the desk. “How did you know it was me?”

Tommy - The Trials and Tribulations of a Girl?

I've decided that when your 73 that recovery from major surgery takes a lot longer than when your in your 60's. And that the doctor was right, you will have good days and bad days. It looks like it's 2 steps forward and 1 step back (sometimes 2). Well, yesterday was a good day, so look for a new chapter of Tommy sometime this morning.

Found something interesting about The Candy Cane club

While Searching through Tanya Allan's books on Kindle. I came across Candy Cane Club (BOOK 2)

It is called Dead End and came out 4 yes ago. I heard previously that there would be a 2nd book but didn't know it had been released.

I really loved the first book and would definitely recommend. I now have to re read the first book before I do the second. I do not know if it is available through big closets links, maybe Erin can check and add the link

Thanks all



Dear Commentator

I need help. I accidentally uploaded the wrong chapters (3,4,&5) and when I went to delete those chapters and insert the correct one, it did fine except the title still reads incorrectly. It should read chapter 2

Will you please fix it for me?

Also, what's the HTML code in here to add extra blank lines between paragraphs?


Starcraft 2

I was taking a break on YouTube and happened to start a video called StarCraft 2. In the clip, they were involved in some sort of boring space war as usual. The male soldiers were completely covered in this combat Armor while the female soldier was in a form fitting body suit that left her Ass and back completely naked.

Sadly, I think that some of the stories here come as a result of watching those videos, or playing those games, or reading those books, or comics.

Trying to find a 'Supers' story

Don't know if the story was part of a Universe or a stand-alone

It was quite dark.

MC mutates, becomes catatonic, ends up in an institution

While in the institution is abused along with the other patients, used for drugs testing.

MC's begins to come out of the catatonic state, finds they have telepathy, telekenesis.


Hi all!

Thank you so much for all your support, comments and Kudos on Witch's Apprentice. I'm going to do another editing pass on it and make some corrections for future viewings but I'm also considering a slight spin-off of the series with a story focusing on Skuld and what happens next with her story from her point of view. Let me know if you'd like to see that.

Things are calming down with the move so I'm hoping that now I've got some stability I'll be able to work on things more.

Thank you again!

advance warning

Well i'm having a bit of a time of things this week but I have got 1902 Sunbeam part 2 completed. The plan is to post it tomorrow.

Another mild day today, blue skies and sunshine this afternoon and some new lanes explored. Was a bit disappointed when I got to my Lunch stop of Rufford Abbey that they were having a Christmas Fayre! It's barely mid November, I thought Xmas was in late December?

News of Karen Lockhart

Hi Everyone,
If' you've been wondering about Karen Lockhart and her current novel 'Ginny's Story', I'm sorry to inform you that she is currently in hospital after a fall. I am in touch with her cousin and will post any news. There are no chapters of Ginny available to post at present. Some of you know that I do the proofing, so as soon as I get another chapter I will proof it as soon as possible. I'm as keen as everyone else to know what happens next.
Regards, Bronwen Welsh

Psyren's Redemption - The Gateway Predicament

Indigo Knight's attack has had its desired effect and Ashira was spared from a death at Babalawo's hands, but will she recover from her injuries in time to finally defeat Chemosh or will they all suffer a fate worse than death?

Follow this link to read this week's part.

This one to read the entire chapter.

Last Call

I’ll be deleting Jessica Jade from BigCloset on Monday.

A larger Jessica Jade - Metamorphosis gets uploaded to Amazon. If you’re interested, it’s 35% longer, actually 3/8th. I’ve used all your suggestions and written several new chapters. It’s been reworked and the expanded version just reads better.

I start posting Wildcats 4 chapter by chapter on Thanksgiving

Magic (Politics) is... Late, again. Sorry!

Hi, those brave souls still hanging in there with me on Hannah's current political Odyssey!
(Translation - I gotta do an update on why my latest chapter is late, bear with me everyone :3)

Editing hit a bit of a snag this week and while I was hoping to get the chapter up and ready to post by this morning, it hasn't worked out.
I'm sorry to anyone who gets antsy without their Hannah-fix (Winlyn, I'm looking at you lol) but I'll try to get the chapter up as quickly as I can once things are sorted.

It Can Only Go Up From Here

6,800 words into “It Can Only Go Up From Here”.

The story takes place one month after the events in “To Be a Different Someone” and I decided to include the social and political issues that I didn’t want to hang onto Jennifer’s shoulders in the first book but it just seems that it had to come to place that there are going to be people who will hate her for no reason except their own prejudices and intolerance.

January 2019 Contest Prizes Teaser 2!

Another weekend, another teaser of some of the books you can find in the Doppler Press bundle being offered as a prize in the Reader Retention contest!

For those of you who may have missed it here are the rules. For everyone else, here's the next two books to be revealed from the curated list!

My Choice:

Preview of my latest project

I've been a bit busy, and the whole recovery thing from Hurricane Harvey is very slow, laborious, and the conditions keep making me sick. 14 months and counting until our house and lives are whole again - or as close as possible. While I've been very much slowed, I have been working on a few projects. I figured y'all might like a preview of one tiny bit of this already-massive project. It's quite likely that I'll try to sell it. It's tentatively titled "Corporate Coup"

Searching for two books

I'm looking for two Science Fiction books that I read "about" 20 years ago. I can not remember if one of the characters was TG or anything.

In the story was a character who had a machine something like a spinning wheel in which they cut the spools of time and spliced it, thus altering time.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

November - Sandal's?

Just a quickie - well I got my ride in, 115km (that's @ 75 old fashioned miles I think) and visited the Sandal's up near Wakefield. Had my sandwich and flask of coffee sat overlooking the Castle which, after the 'good ole boys' (aka the Parliamentarians, think Trump but with a more vindictive nature) got done with it in the 1640's is but a shadow of its former self.

Story about

A Lad sent to stay with his aunt by mother, I can't remember if there is a father, mother going away

Mother call every night, all seems fine until he notices itching in chest

he tries to get help from mom, mom believes aunt she is moms sister after all.

help finally comes from female friend, friend i think lives next door, the only one that aunt lets him accociate with

This relationship is aunts undoing as, the friend is M2F but aunt thinks her parents are as ill as she is

Mom finally arrives at the hospital and begs forgiveness

By Your Side, Waiting - New Book on Amazon

Word Count 72,000+

In this YA story, High School Juniors, Jordan and his best friend Rose have been friends since childhood. Rose has a crush on Jordan yet he seems oblivious. Along with friends, they form a band for a talent contest. A follow-up concert at a charity event may provide an opportunity to publish their songs and sell them on the internet. This story explores romance, young love, and family interactions as our protagonists learn family secrets in their search for success in their music and their personal lives.


Figured I would clue everyone into where I've been, at least with my writing and lack of posting.

I had a heart attack two weeks ago, or at least that what the doctor tells me. I think the ER wanted to keep me at least over night, but they decided to let me go after experiencing my unique scene of humor :)

While that could have been bad, it actually wasn't. The truly bad was finding out I am now blessed with diabetes as my A1C came back 245. Then they also found unusual liver enzymes.

"Myrna and the Grievous Error" is gone

I have deleted "Myrna and the Grievous Error" due to popular demand - two people. However the lack of votes also indicated problems. The story has been replaced with "Myrna and the Genetic Disaster". The stories are pretty much the same for about halfway. After that the story is expanded considerably following the lives of Wanda and Tamesha, Penny, and Sydney. I particularly like how Penny reacts to her estranged parents. All around, more detail and a happier conclusion.

Kris Traverse

This appeared in the comments for her story published last week I think it got pushed off the front page by new comments before many people saw it.

Sadly I must report that the Adventures of Alexa and Jenny have come to an end.
The Author and my good friend, Kris Traverse
Passed away unexpectedly last week. A heart attack. She will be missed greatly!

Tommy - The Trials and Tribulations of a Girl?

Hi all.

Well, it's my turn in the barrel. I've been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. So, on Wednesday 11/7, I will be having my thyroid and some lymph nodes removed. I should only be in the hospital for two or three days (I hope). Then I get to glow. I get to take a radioactive iodine pill.

Hopefully, I won't leave Tommy's readers hanging too long by their acrylic fingernails.


break from Gaby

Well only a short break. Instead of writing new Gaby today i've been going at a short stand alone story. It's been slower going than i'd hoped but i've got over 2000 words down, there may be another couple of thousand to go - I know the plot, it just needs fleshing out.

I'm making no promises but it might be ready for Wednesdays update. No spoilers other than to say there are bikes involved, a death and the lead character is rather bland.

Well i'm off to bed, the weather is set fair for tomorrow so i'll get a bit of a ride in.




I have mentioned the National Novel Writing Month before and I am participating again.

This time there are even more reward offers there than before. For the first time apart from publishing possibilities there are

a cash prize of $1000
and two ruuner up prizes of $500 each!

Writing Code

I'm thinking of writing a tale about a person of indeterminate gender who mostly lives as a woman. This person supports herself by writing code, sometimes nefariously. The world is well advanced into a threatening Global Warming cycle that has been happening for over three generations, and surprisingly humanity is so pressed to survive that wars and most criminality has stopped, but not before over half the population is gone.



I've been reading for years but this is the first time I've signed up and now when I went to post the first part of the story, I messed up. But, in signing up I managed to screw up where I don't have any way to access posting or editing a story. I need help from someone behind the curtain.

Thank you,


Blog Entry 4th November 2018

Hi all

Just to let you all know that uploads over the next few weeks may be a little erratic. I'm still going to be writing, but I've received some news recently that sort-of goes beyond 'bad' into 'devastating'. So if I take longer between chapters, or if the quality wobbles a bit (more than usual), please do bear with me.

And here's a song that sums things up-


Fantasy Story

Medieval type time period.

Heir to the throne protects the kingdom by use of magic, and His actions become a feat legend as he disapeared.

The act changes his gender.

I seem to remember something covering the MCs eyes, I don't think she was blind I think she had no eyes or eye lids just a layer of skin where the eyes should be, so the cover was to alleviate the distress to others.

January 2019 Contest Prizes Teaser 1!

Details are somewhat settled on the prize front, and this time we've got something super special for all of you avid readers out there: book bundles!

Yep! Miss Erin's putting in some overtime to help with this 'un, and we're going to offer two bundles of (platform free) ebooks for our top two prizes!

First place: 15 Doppler Press eBooks, 12 curated by me and Erin and the other 3 winner's choice

Second place: 10 Doppler Press eBooks, 8 curated by me and Erin and the other 2 winner's choice

Amalgamated - Psyren's Redemption - Double Length

When they light clears, the tables have turned and Sapphira, Ashtar and Amy pose are stronger than they ever had before, but will they prove Chemosh's downfall or does the once-god have one last surprise up her sleeves?

Dark Odyssey

Dark Odyssey kindle.jpeg

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. She was supposed to have been cured. She had been cured. All of those horrible impulses and instincts that had ruled her life were supposed to be gone. She was supposed to be able to live her life like a normal teenage fey girl… with paranormal abilities… going to a special school for fey like her. Okay, ‘normal’ was a bit of a stretch, but she wasn’t supposed to be a raging nymphomaniac anymore.
