We’re glad to meet you here. We’re a band of people who read bountiful books – and write them, too!
If you’re like us, you’ve been frustrated by how hard it is to find the kind of reading material you like: bigger-than-life books in the grand tradition of the Literary Fiction classics, and ambitious Fusion Fiction that pushes the envelope of modern publishing by crossing several genre lines.
We all love reading language that paints pictures inside our heads, and we’re not bothered if we occasionally have to pick up a thesaurus or dictionary, to learn some new vocabulary we found in a great book.
We want to read stories that make us think and feel: to laugh, cry, get mad, have hope, be happy, surprised, satisfied.
We’ve often been so disappointed by modern fiction, that we’ve thought, “I could write better than that!”
And many of us felt driven to do so – but you don’t often find our novels in bookshops or on best-seller lists. That’s why we’ve come together here.
So whether you’ve arrived eager to explore the broad horizons of challenging tales that will reveal new heights and depths of meaning, or to get help with finding new homes in the hearts of readers for your own imagination’s beloved, beleaguered characters –
Welcome to a Renaissance of great reading, at the Masterpiece Marketplace.
