We've decided to open a thread for book promotions. Closes 1st January.

Post your books here.

We would advise you to stagger them if you intend on posting several. Posting them one at a time, will achieve a bigger marketing impact.

We'll feature some of them on our Facebook page.

This is one of my favourite books. I've read it three times because it's about time-travel, it's got lots of history and it's set in a village that I've visited in Somerset. I've just found out James Long has written the sequel. Yum yum.

A highly Recommended Real Read

It is so strange this was the movie the young girl saw before boarding that fatal bus in which she was gang raped last month by a handful of hooligans.It happened in New Delhi, India. Whereas in the movie, the boy named Pi survives, she did not. She was thrown out of the running... Show more

This is where you can submit the first page of your BookRix book for critique.

We are focusing on improvements with grammar, spelling, punctuation etc, so if you think that's an area you'd like some help with, copy and paste the first page of your story and put the title in the subject line.

Don't worry about getting it wrong. We all got it wrong at some point. Still do! Remember, you have to start somewhere and we're all here... Show more

Hello!

Here is a short story about two very different women meeting in hospital.

Native speakers, please let me know, if there are any errors in grammar and spelling. Nevertheless, enjoy the story!

Julia's Journey http://www.bookrix.de/_ebook-andreas-f-julia-039-s-journey/ Nana loved these days in autumn; she used to do long walks through the forest to enjoy the smell of the frozen earth and breathe the icy air that was around her. There was so much to discover when ...

What’s the core of Hinduism?

My dear friends,
I am filled by joy and happiness from my heart that you had selected this book to turn the dreams of about 1 billion peoples into reality. There is no word to explain this emotional feeling which is coming out from my heart. From almost the 1000 years this warmness, this emotion, this joy, and this response I (Hinduism) never feel. I only had feel and seen the... Show more

Poor Adverbs. Should they stay or should they go now... By: AlphaOmega

Yup, we're talking about those pesky, -ly ending words called adverbs. Some say eliminate them all. They bring nothing to the story.

Others say, noooo leave them. They make the story so much better.

Like everything else, if they're done correctly, they're fine. Imagine an adverb in every sentence. She adorably, laughed loudly at the stupid dog barking furiously at the man going up the ladder in his leathery shoes. Haha...... Show more

I tend to see them as verbal special effects. The best way to explain this is to look at the difference between movies of the last century and those of today. During the early days of cinema, special effects were the realm of the foley artist - producing the background sounds,... Show more

I've noticed this a long time ago and it grated on my nerves. Never wanted to enter in a debate about it, but since it's still ongoing, I'm gonna make a post.

Why, oh why doesn't SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) exist in either posts or books? This applies to most young ones on here. Also, those who have English as their second language have the habit of doing it. But the young ones who speak it as their first... Show more

Not to mention a complete absence of formatting. What professional book is written in one paragraph from start to finish? Or doesn't differentiate between speakers in the dialogue parts? For that matter, what good book is nothing more than whining and seeking revenge from the... Show more

Many are just written for fun. What amazes me most is that some people are able to read them and understand them.

I try, I really do, to read the stories but it's hard. Only a few manage to capture me till the end and they're those who have a sort of plot. I regard many of the... Show more

Hard to say. They don't even teach cursive writing anymore, so who knows if they teach other stuff related to good writing. What's more likely, though, is that because of the current "snowflake" culture and "helicopter parenting," the kids who have melt-downs when they're asked... Show more

Ha, here they teach cursive writing for a year but the kids never use it again. We parents grumble that they should remove it, it's useless :). No one is ever satisfied.

judycolella

In today's tech world there are really only two practical uses for cursive: a personal signature, and the way it improves right/left brain function during a child's early school years in terms of coordination and increased learning ability.
