Ripping Yarns
« on: January 18, 2013, 04:30 AM »
Hi there!
My name is Bev Allen and I write "ripping yarns" :)
More correctly, I write YA scific action adventure stuff, but with enough guts, blood and sex for it definitely not to be for the junior end of the YA audience. Think 16 to 96 age group.
First novel, published by Taylor Street is here

Good old Amazon allows you to read the opening few pages for free, but if you want to check me out first, there's some of my short fiction on my Goodreads blog

If all goes to plan ( editors etc), my second book will be out sometime this year.

Happy reading everyone. What would life be like without books.

Sis I edited this to add the other thread we were talking on with links to your Flash Fiction and books:

You've all made me feel so welcome...thank you.
I'm checking with my publisher to see if it is okay for me to put a sample chapter of my book on here somewhere. Give you all a better idea of what I can do when I have a BIG word count puddle to splash about in :)

I think the samples would go here:  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

If I am wrong Drypen will whack me with the rolling  pin and tell me where to put it...   Why I was helping Suze learn to do something and Drypen threatened me with it.  I don't know why, it only took her 4 hours to get it straightened out with Suze.

That's our specialty. One of the best things about this site IMO is the fact that while you may disagree with someone fighting, name calling, and general nastiness is not allowed. We commonly call ourselves a community vs a forum for that reason.

A sample chapter would be awesome! We also have several members who regularly get ARC's from net galley and the like and review your genre. Quite a few bloggers too!

I must say, little brothers have their uses. He did a great job loading the sample for me.

You totally lost me. I have no idea what you're talking about, Philo. How much is still left in your bottle of vodka?

If you haven't seen Doctor Who: School Reunion you wouldn't get it.
Sarah Jane Smith meets Rose Tyler who is the Dr's new companion. 
Mickey says "Oh man it's every man's worst nightmare: The new wife and the ex"

If anyone is interested, I am doing an interview on Goodreads tomorrow. It will be in the Young Adult Book Club and I am doing a giveaway of "Jabin" 20 ebooks, so if you want a chance of getting one, you need to go see.

Don't worry about updating both of them.  I'll do it.  Just update one of them or tell me the facts and I'll update.  I'll  create the event on your page too if you want.
Pm me.  It would be easier than emailing me.  Click my name. Go to my page and go to send a  message.
