I’m an author from Argentina who writes stories in english. I recently published a short story on Amazon and I want to increse its exposure
Here’s a description of the story:
Isolated. Dark. Endless. The railroad tracks are a place where anything can happen with only the night as a witness. And the worst thing is most of the time they go unnoticed.
Kenny made a habit out of walking over them, completely ignoring their existence. Until they called him. A messenger in the form of a wagon came to get him. To take him away. No matter how much he tried to avoid it, he had no choice. Now his life is in danger.
Hiding in Third Person
Hiding in Third Person is a story within a story. A mental patient tells a wild story of two boys running from a killer. The boys take refuge at an abandoned military facility in the Central Jersey Pine Barrens. The patient’s story ends in a bloody showdown, and the disappearance of one of the boys.
Doctors do not take the man’s story seriously. One orderly is compelled to prove the story true, even though to do so will put him in harm’s way.
Bio: After retiring from the military, I became a high school teacher. The two main characters in the patient’s story are loosely based on several boys I have taught over the years.
Melody J. Bremen
Melody J. Bremen writes books for middle grade and young adult readers. She lives on a distant planet where all they do is write and read books. (Sometimes they eat jelly beans.) She has a faithful computer named Oswald.
Descendants of H.G. Wells & Leonardo Da Vinci build a Time Machine based on their famous ancestors’ works. Rather than go through history eliminating evil dictators they decide they’d rather make love to the sexiest women in history instead. However, they get more than they bargained for as they get caught up in some of the most famous conspiracies of the last 3,000 years from Cleopatra to Elizabeth 1st and beyond, with Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Jane Fonda, Princess Diana, The Kennedy’s and many more household names front and centre of some very interesting storylines. It also features a very poignant love story between Marilyn & Frank Sinatra as a core story.
The novel features lots of thrills and twists plus the author’s trade mark tasteful ultra-erotic element. Although not a comedy story it has more funny moments in just one chapter than most comedy feature films, such as when Marilyn is kidnapped through time to this Century and even struggles to get a job as an M.M look-alike! The book is full of water-cooler moments that will leave you on a high with a smile on your face.
If you are already a fan of any of the characters mentioned you’ll love this book but always remember this is Science Fiction and although some things may seem familiar they are not always as they seem. History will never be the same again!

John David Buchanan
I have a lot of hobbies – playing guitar and drums, cooking, inventing, and most recently writing science fiction. After 36 years in the environmental business I decided it was time to ease out of writing technical reports and starting writing science fiction for fun. I was going to write one book – Jump Starting the Universe. It has turned into three books, the second being The Edge of Nothing and Everything, and the third – World Eaters (in-progress and hopefully will be published in June 2017).
I have an overactive imagination and believing in the “let no story go unwritten” I’m writing a thriller titled The Obsession of Mr. Pendergrass . I’ve posted short chapters on my website –
www.jumpstartingtheuniverse.com – and on Goodreads. Ultimately, the serially released chapters will be expended and published as a full novel. Check out my author page on Facebook- John David Buchanan – and twitter @JDBuchanan. Did I mention the epic poem I’m writing? The Rune of One – to be published in the distant and unforeseeable future.
