    New Skating Novel - Life On the Edge

    Life On the Edge is a new novel written by our own TanithandBenFan! It's available now as an e-book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble (paperback version will follow soon).

    All the links can be found here:

    Life On the Edge

    I've read the book and love it. I may be a bit biased...but I hope you guys enjoy it too.

    Here's the synopsis of the novel:

    Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

    Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily’s dreams of gold.

    Thanks so much for the promo, lovesdance!!!!

    DarkEyes, I hope you enjoy the book! It's a feel-good story that people of all ages can enjoy. Having a book published has been a life-long dream, so it's been an exciting few days! I'm so grateful to everyone who's bought it so far. If you do read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts, whether it be here or through a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    I'm aware of that, but I choose not to. When I'm on the computer, I'm usually doing other things.

    Astraea Press. They're a small publisher but have grown quite a bit since opening a year ago.

    Jjane45, the book has changed a lot since I posted the link here I tightened it up and completely changed the second half of the book

    I love seeing people excited about it! It's getting great reviews so far! My publisher doesn't do any advertising since they're still on the small side, so word-of-mouth and social media are two of the biggest ways I'm trying to get the book in front of people. If you read it and enjoy it, please spread the word!

    Jennifer,
    just wondering if you might be having the book done up in ePub format for people up here in Canada who don't use Kindle. I thought about purchasing a Kindle but was told it limits me my reading material.
    If it's already in ePub format, would you mind providing a link? I'd love to purchase a copy for my Kobo eReader.

    If you buy it through my publisher's website, it offers you a variety of file choices to download after purchase (ePub, PDF, MOBI, PRC, etc). Here's the link to my book on their site. Let me know if it works! Thanks so much for checking it out!

    It's changed a lot! The characters are the same, but I rewrote much of the book after working with some writing critique partners. Some of the events are the same, but I think you'd find this version to be much more polished. You should check it out.

    My friend said the same thing about the skate, but she couldn't find a good photo with an elite skater's skate to use.

    Thanks for the quick response. I wasn't sure how much you "hang" around here so I fired off an email shortly after I made my post here. Much to my surprise, I already received an email from them telling me pretty much what you said. Now where did I put my credit card ...

    OK, I placed my order and I have it in the format I supposedly need but my program doesn't see it ...
    le sigh ...
    guess I'm off to learn how to add an ePub file to my Kobo
