book by its cover
15 February 2017 17:18 (GMT)Hi this is my first posting on the forums so my apologies if this is in the wrong section.
I have a question if anyone is able to help?
I like my E-books to have a specific cover, sometimes to match the tree book version I have and I've noticed that some have updated to recent release versions rather than what was originally loaded - is there a way of changing the covers back? Importing and changing to a preferred cover choice like you can within Goodreads.
Any helpful comments welcomed
kindle brick wall
27 January 2017 17:58 (GMT)Kindle brick wall
I have just purchased a paperwhite and tried many times to get a book onto my kindle
Rather than give up is there anyone I or near Gainsborough who could do this for me
I am sure once all is set up I would then be able to use it myself
I have read many bits of how to. But alas. Still stuck and I desperation searched for a site who may offer hands on
Hope I entered all
Kindle Paperwhite won't charge
26 January 2017 13:56 (GMT)My Kindle Paperwhite isn't charging. The battery level is low but not critically low and when I connect to a power source, the battery indicator light goes amber for about 10 seconds and then changes to green. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting many times with the same result always. I also tried charging through the computer and this hasn't worked either.
I'd appreciate any advice on how to solve this issue.

His Grandfather's Garden
Jannie Jaacobs was in the second-hand car business. Or, to be more specific, Jannie was in the business of getting cars started. (Even if the keys were not always available.)
But having re-located his business from Capetown to Jo'burg (with a considerable degree of urgency and haste), Jannie was presented with a problem.
He was no longer able to dig his beloved Grandfather's garden for him, and the Old Man had now injured his hip.
...... Jannie had to find a solution: fast.

eRom: UK only double deal
23 February 2017 21:36 (GMT)Hello. My first time promoting on this forum . One series - two books. Not sure where else to put it ....
Desire for Touch....
Has it ever been like this for you? Hands and heat and need become the world? … Have you ever been loved like this?
Avienne Rivers hadn’t. The investigative reporter focused on work, family and friends. If she needed a man, well, that was easy enough. There were always willing men. For a night or a week.
Now, Avia was on her way to interview a sex-toy manufacturer. What was she supposed to write about? The benefits of a pink sparkle dildo?
But Benedict Hart turned out to be a charming, funny, accomplished man who made Avia warm in a cool mountain breeze with a dimpled smile, a direct gaze and a passion for life. And, he made clear, for her.
But this Alpha female wasn’t about to turn into a compliant mass of quivering nerve-endings at the crook of an elegant finger. Still. That finger was attached to a strong, warm hand and a beautiful man. And there was definite quiverage going on in certain parts of her body.
Besides, you just flashed on him throwing you down here in broad daylight on his terrace. He seems like a good guy and he wants to give you great sex. It’s not Of Human Bondage, it’s just experimenting with something different. And it'll provide depth to the story.
And then Ben touched her. And she was lost.
What she didn’t know was: so was he.
This is a love story.
80k words. A frankly sexy D/s Romance novel. Book 1/3, HFN, no cliffhanger. desire for Bliss, Book 2, available now.
Desire for Bliss
Have you ever known the power of surrender?
Investigative reporter Avienne Rivers hadn't. Until one compelling man made her want what she never thought she'd ever want. Made her feel what she didn't know she could feel.
Dr. Harley picked up her notepad. “Tell me what brings you here, today,” the sex researcher said. “Besides a story.”
Avia hesitated. It’s a story. First graph. Five Ws. “I met a man Wednesday morning, was in intimate sexual contact with him by afternoon, was committed to having continuing sexual contact with him by evening. He did things to me I swore I’d never do and by early this morning, I was convinced I was falling in love with him.” She took a breath. “And I consider myself a grounded, sensible person.”
"This is Wednesday, four days ago?" Avia nodded. Harley made a note. “Do you believe he cares for you?”
“Yes. I’m sure of it.”
“And you mentioned you have strong feelings for him?”
Avia gave a helpless shrug. “He’s smart and strong and caring and beyond sexy and beautiful. I don’t know how to not love him.” Avia smiled ruefully, “Truth is, I feel like Wednesday morning I drove into some alternate reality. A place where- " She felt the heat suffuse her face, but pushed on. "- where I want to ... submit," she finally forced out. "My life is still my life, but everything’s changed. The way I see myself as a sexual being and a woman. It all so happened fast I’m not sure I know what I think or feel or believe.”
Ben Hart pounded along the jogging track that meandered through the foothills acreage he called home. On his runs, he worked through his problems, came to decisions. But this time, he wasn’t thinking about expanding markets or engineering problems. He was thinking about a woman.
Ben had had many women. He liked women. Liked how good he could make them feel. But he'd given up looking for the kind of caring, intimate relationship he craved. So he’d built an empire, instead, out of sexual support products everyone else called “toys” and erotic romance books.
Then Avia Rivers interviewed him for an erotica article.
Avienne … The scent of her skin. The light glinting off the gold in her hair. The way she cocked her eyebrow at him when she challenged his ideas. ... The way her head fell back and throat worked when he touched her. The furious blush that swept her neck and face when he triggered the humiliation response that so deeply aroused her. The warmth in her eyes whenever she saw him. Her acceptance and courage, wit and intelligence -
You’re falling in love with her, you effing idiot, and it scares the hell out of you. Because now, you have to show her who you really are.
90,000 word erotic Romance novel. D/s. Book 2/3. Can be read stand-alone. DESIRE FOR TOUCH, Book 1 in the RiverHart trilogy where Ben and Avia meet, now available on Amazon.(No cliffhangers)
FREE today only: Psychic Warrior. Based on a real Special Ops Program
23 February 2017 13:36 (GMT)Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton and a small team of US Green Berets who were originally trained in Trojan Warrior program are thrust into the Psychic Warrior program. The team, called Bright Gate, must battle Chyort on the virtual plane and take their own avatars into the real world. Their mission seems simple. Stop Chyort. If they fail? World War III...
Psychic Warrior takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars and then reinserts the covert operatives into the real world. The results can be devastating. Mayer uses his real Military experience in the then-classified Special Forces Trojan Warrior program, which was actually conducted, and writes a novel about the new frontier of warfare: the mind.
The Russians sink the submarine USS Thresher in 1963 using their classified psychic project, but something goes awry and all are killed. All except one scientist who plans to take the project to a higher level. Decades later, the Russians unleash Chyort, also known as the ‘Devil’. Chyort is a cyborg that can project into the virtual world with almost limitless power and reassemble his avatar anywhere in real world to wreak havoc. As the Russian mafia steals 20 nuclear warheads to auction them to the highest bidder, Chyort implements his own plan of revenge.
FREE today: The Jefferson Allegiance can stop an Imperial Presidency
19 February 2017 15:26 (GMT)The Jefferson Allegiance
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson 1787.
The 4th of July 1826. As Thomas Jefferson lies dying, he gives his part of his Jefferson Cipher to Edgar Allen Poe, with instructions to take the disks to West Point. In Massachusetts, John Adams entrusts his part of the Cipher to Colonel Thayer, the superintendent of the Military Academy. As Thayer rides away, Adams utters his final words: “Thomas Jefferson survives.”
In the present, Green Beret Paul Ducharme has been recalled from Afghanistan after the ‘accidental’ death of his best friend, the son of one of the Philosophers. While Ducharme is visiting his friend’s gravesite in Arlington, an old man is executed by a member from the Society of Cincinnati know as the Surgeon, who is seeking to gather all the pieces of the cipher. In a nearby restaurant, former CIA and now Curator at Monticello, Evie Tolliver, waits anxiously for her mentor to arrive, but he’s killed by the same assassin at the Zero Milestone. His heart and the Philosopher’s head are displayed as a grisly message on top of the stone, echoing Jefferson’s famous head-heart letter.
Ducharme and Tolliver, the unknowing heirs to become the next generation of caretakers of the Jefferson Allegiance, team up and must battle the Surgeon to assemble the Cipher and find the Jefferson Allegiance, a document that has kept the balance of power in the United States for over two centuries.
The Society of the Cincinnati was founded in May of 1783. A leading member was Alexander Hamilton, and the first President of the Society was George Washington. Thomas Jefferson was not allowed membership. The Society of the Cincinnati is the oldest, continuous military society in North America. It has its current headquarters at the Anderson House in downtown Washington, DC.
In 1802, President Thomas Jefferson, well known for his strong opposition to a standing army, established the United State Military Academy, the oldest Military Academy in North America. In 1819, Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia, the first college in the United States to separate religion from education. It has its current headquarters in Philosophical Hall on Liberty Square in Philadelphia.
