Hi everybody!
I'm new and so is my novel. I just wanted to give you some idea of what its about and get to know you. I'll start with the main character.
Amora Madre has just experienced the shock of her life. Not only has she learned that her childhood imaginary friends are real, but that they are not human. She soon finds herself in Washington, D.C., having been chosen by the Intergalactic Supernatural Intelligence Agency (ISIA) to fight an evil supernatural syndicate determined to destroy the balance of good and evil on Earth. Amora’s mission is played out in the novel and it is in current times.
I was inspired to write Liberation while living in Washington, D.C. Visiting monuments and the National Archives made the story's fragments come together as if the Andrusian race were calling me to write their chronicles. The novel has a special twist regarding the nation's capital and its founding. I was incredably inspired by the tangible sense of power I felt walking the streets, viewing the monuments, and considering what happened to make the United States a land of freedom. In Liberation, the concept of American freedom reaches a new level and so do the supernatural challenges that the nation and planet must face.
The novel is available in Kindle as well as print. Please visit Liberation's web site :

Might I point out that it's spelled "powerful"? I'm not trying to be a spelling cop here, but a misspelling in the title of an advertisement for a book tends to make a bad first impression of the author's writing skills (also, putting a thumbs-up icon on your own post is kinda tacky).

You've left out a very, very important piece of information: where to buy the book. The best marketing campaign in the world won't do any good if people can't buy what you're selling.

All authors have editors (or should), yes, but that does not excuse an author from attempting to spell, punctuate, capitalize, etc., correctly when promoting their book. Would you trust an auto mechanic whose car leaves a trail of fluids and spare parts as it rattles down the street?

In any event, do I understand correctly that this book is only available for the Kindle? (I still can't find a "buy my book here" link)

Hello Maria and welcome to MobileRead!
thanks! I feel like I'm learning to drive or like its my first time on stage. I don't even know how to edit my own stuff or where the spellcheck is or anything. I'm just getting the hang of everything, even the lingo.

thanks though!

I didn't think you'd ease up. I mispell words. It happens and it might happen again...really. Specially when I don't see a spellcheck.

I put Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com at the bottom under the signature. I'm just learning to edit... about the link, do you want me to hyperlink the words Amazon.com?

When one types in the message box, and a word is misspelled, then the word will be underlined in red. At that point, highlight the word and right click on it. You'll see some possible choices (assuming the word is not grossly misspelled).

However, to the best of my knowledge, that spell check does not come into play when typing in Titles for threads.

I don't believe you can edit your Title thread. (I may be wrong; let me check on that.)
