13 Responses to List your 2013 Eligible Works here!

  1. Here’s a rundown of my eligible works this time around…

    By Sword and Star
    Publisher: Anthropomorphic Dreams Publishing
    Link
    Length: Novel
    Rating: Open to interpretation. (Personally, I’d
    put it in General, but that depends on how kid-friendly
    the “General” category is supposed to be.)
    Blurb: Prince Tiran of Silverglen may be heir to
    the throne of all Asteria, but he’s always felt more at
    home among the villagers, no matter how many lectures he
    gets from his father. But when the elk-lord Roden
    slaughters the royal family and claims the throne for
    himself, only Tiran is left to avenge their deaths and
    take his place as the rightful king. His journey will lead him from the shadowed heart of his forest home into the treetops with the squirrel-clan of the Drays, across the western plains, and among the mysterious and deadly wolves of the Northern Reach. With his allies’ help, Tiran must become the king his people need him to be – or risk fulfilling an ancient prophecy that will spell the end of Asteria itself.

    relationship with its owner than either of them
    expected–but is love truly enough to make you real?

    Length: Short story
    Rating: General
    Blurb: When Santa finds himself one reindeer short for the Christmas run, the frost-elf Boreas enchants a replacement. But there’s more than elf-magic being worked, and when an ancient foe threatens them all, the gingerbread reindeer finds he’s made of more than just flour and sugar.

    [b]Rating:[/b] Adult
    [b]Synopsis:[/b] The BDSM scene runs the gamut from hobbyists to serious lifestylers whose existences owe themselves to the worship of roles and gear.

    [i]Best Interests[/i], from ROAR Vol. 4

    [b]Rating:[/b] General
    [b]Synopsis:[/b] Fame and celebrity can mean anything from being popufur to the President. David Kibber has just achieved the latter. But he’s got a few strikes against him: he’s single, not too bad. He’s a lion, which humans have pretty much gotten used to or they wouldn’t have elected him. Oh, yes, and he’s gay, which they don’t know. And they especially don’t know about his secret boyfriend, who David had to dump for the good of the campaign. But, as election night winds down and he prepares his victory speech, has he made the right decision? Or will the boyfriend pull a stunt they both regret?

    [b]Synopsis:[/b] Donkeys aren’t supposed to run in the Kentucky Derby. But Cyrus’s brother Ken has made the cut, and he’s up out of state to run against the thoroughbreds. Though this story isn’t about Ken. It depicts a unique moment in time and place, a period of transition for a young male donkey preparing to leave his family’s southern plantation to head off to law school. But first, he has one last fling with the family’s cook and caretaker, an older male alligator who has helped usher him into manhood and who encourages him to follow his heart even when it means breaking societal taboos. Set against the backdrop of the radio broadcast of the race, it reveals characters through absence and hopefully entertains to boot.

    There you go. If the formatting doesn’t take, I’m sorry; I suck at coding these windows. Good luck to all!

    The Man With Two Shadows
    Publisher: AuthorHouse
    Rating: General (novel)
    Cover Blurb: Have you ever felt uncomfortable in your own skin? Maybe there’s a reason…

    Jeremiah Pym is a private detective – not the flashy gun-toting gumshoe of old, but a quiet, respectable shamus of modern day who earns a modest living on domestic intrigues and background checks. After being hired for what should be a routine surveillance job, Jeremiah witnesses a kidnapping, barely escaping with his life. The next day, however, not a trace remains of any kidnapping… or anything else that he saw.
    Trying to put the puzzle pieces together leads the detective on a convoluted chase that brings into question everything that he’s ever known about himself. With the help of his Native American mentor, Edgard Moon Bear, Jeremiah discovers that the key to the mystery may be found in another world – a world where therianthropes (human/animal hybrids) are the sentient beings, and where hundreds of years of slow change has allowed some of these beings to wield magical powers.
    As Jeremiah learns the secrets of his own past, he comes to learn who and what he is… and why his existence is central to the continued survival of two worlds.

  10. Fred Patten says:

    I have had a book published, but it is not eligible for the Cóyotl Award because it is an anthology and I am the editor, not the author; although I have written an Introduction to the book and individual Introductions to each story. “Second” by M. C. A. Hogarth was first published in 2010; the others are original in this book, published in July 2013.

    Title: What Happens Next; An Anthology of Sequels

    Publisher: FurPlanet Productions

    Blurb: ““… and they lived happily ever after. The End.”
Do they really? The best stories always leave you wanting more. What
 happens to the charismatic characters next? It is hard to believe, after all the adventures they have gone through, that life will be trouble-free for them forever after. Even if they do live happily ever after, what are the details?

 Second by M.C.A. Hogarth; Alysha Forrest. 
Festival of Vampires by Brock Hoagland; Perissa and Maelith. 
False Doctrine by Kevin Frane; Iolite League.

    Oops! I goofed! You want works published during 2012. Well, I had two books published during 2012, but they are still not eligible for a Cóyotl Award because they are anthologies and I am the editor, not the author. Both were published in June 2012.
