  1. You have Anne Frank’s diary and The Lord of the Rings on your list, so there is hope for you yet. May I suggest adding Dune, Ender’s Game and Stranger in a Strange Land? I’d also add Solaris and Roadside Picnic and Inhabited Island and Hard to be a God, but none of these books are available in English (the alleged translations simply do not count as “available”, or as literature at all). But first perhaps you should start with Podkayne of Mars, The Menace From Earth, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and Have Spacesuit Will Travel.

    While I hold not a candle to all of the above, you are welcome to review my book on Amazon. I am in need of a few good reviewers. Drop me an email if you’re interested.–ebook/dp/B01A0AM7IW/

  2. Hello.

    I am currently looking for bloggers who wouldn’t mind posting materials for my book, preferably during the week of its release, beginning on 11 July 16. Materials might include (but are not limited to) reviews, cover reveals, guest posts, excerpts, etc.

    I Was, Am, Will Be Alice is a young adult, time travel sci-fi of about 300 pages. The synopsis follows.

    When Alice Carroll is in grade three she narrowly escapes losing her life in a school shooting. All she remembers is the woman comforting her in the moments before the gunshot, and that one second she was there, the next she wasn’t.

    It’s bad enough coming to terms with surviving while others, including her favourite teacher, didn’t, let alone dealing with the fact that she might wink out of existence at any time.
    Alice spends the next few years seeing specialists about her Post Traumatic Stress as a result of VD–Voldemort Day–but it’s not until she has a nightmare about The Day That Shall Not Be Mentioned, disappears from her bed, is found by police, and taken home to meet her four-year-old self that she realizes she’s been time travelling.

    Alice is unsure if her getting unstuck in time should be considered an ability or a liability, until she disappears right in front of her high school at dismissal time, the busiest time of day. Worried that someone may find out about her problem before long, Alice enlists her best friend (and maybe boyfriend), Pete, to help her try to control her shifting through time with limited success. She’s just about ready to give up when the shooter is caught. Alice resolves to take control of her time travelling in order to go back to That Day, stop the shooting, and figure out the identity of the stranger who’d shielded Alice’s body with her own.

    Thank you so much for your services. I hope we can work together, soon.


  3. Hello.

    I am a fantasy author who is looking for reviewers and readers for my first novel. I have the second coming out later this year, and though the first has received some great reviews, I really want to reach more of a younger audience as well. If you are open to helping an author get his message out there, I would love to look at what opportunities you might have and help here in any way I can. I could give you a synopsis, but that can best be found by visiting the website

    Thank you for your time, and keep clinging to your love of books. There is no better pastime out there.

    Best regards,
    Joseph P. Macolino
