Crescent Suns eBooks

Publisher info

Crescent Suns e-Books is a co-op non-publishing house agency, designed with the intention of helping those indie authors who are not certain how to publish their stories or how to produce a quality cover for the stories they are ready to publish. We also (for a nominal fee) will read through your finished manuscript and proof it to eliminate common errors in spelling, grammar, syntax, formatting, etc., providing you, the author, with each error needing to be corrected. For a slightly higher fee we will edit your manuscript for you, eliminating all of the above errors without altering the flavor or intent of your creativity.

We do not accept every author who asks for help, mostly because some who have emailed Crescent Suns e-Books are already so polished that they have no need of our services, yet only lack the confidence to publish their stories on their own. We also will not accept those authors who by our estimation have no talent or skill in writing and would be wasting their money and our time enlisting our services. Yes, we realize this may only be our opinion, but that is the one we must stand by. Any story we decline is not with intent to belittle the author or the work submitted; it simply does not meet the criteria we set. Each author not accepted by Crescent Suns e-Books is perfectly able to publish his or her own works at Smashwords.com without our assistance. We wish all of you well in your endeavors.

Still others subscribe to the services of Crescent Suns e-Books by having us act on their behalf as their publisher online. That does not eliminate the need for those authors to "get the word out" on each of their authored masterpieces, since there is only so much we as a publisher can accomplish, but we are willing to assist in every manner possible to those who seek our help.

Do you have a story completed, but are not certain it's ready to be published? Send an email to: crescentsunspublishing@gmail.com. Please be patient - we have a lot to do currently and will answer each and every email received in as timely a manner as possible.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was raised in the US military. We moved all over America, so I didn't grow up in any one place. Finding myself in a new city every couple of years meant everything was new and I learned to see it all in a different way, describing it in my head even as I wrote to old friends and told them where I was now living.
When did you first start writing?
Not until high school. I wrote my first fiction story in an English class as a group assignment to write and perform a Science Fiction play. No one else in my group had written anything all week, so I sat down the night before the assignment was due and wrote the entire script in a few hours. We received an "A" for the play and the rest of the assignment went smoothly.

Smashwords book reviews by Crescent Suns eBooks

  • Smashwords Style Guide on March 18, 2010

    Out of all the books I've ever read this book is the most important. Without Mark's help found in this book I wouldn't now have my first seven books published and ready for people to read. Mark made it easy to follow in order to get my work published. Sure, I messed up a few times, but that was my fault. Now that I know the proper way to follow Mark's work (Do what he says)it's super easy to get my latest book uploaded to Smashwords, along with the cover. Thanks, Mark.
  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on March 18, 2010

    Thanks to Mark's advice in this book my ebooks are already generating more downloads. It's not hard advice to follow (not rocket science for sure) and works easily enough. Thanks, Mark!
  • Who Censored Roger Rabbit? on April 15, 2010

    I've always loved the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" and since this is the book that movie was taken from I figured I'd give it a try. There was a lot different from the book to the movie, but we all know that's how the movie biz works, right? The differences were nothing to lessen my enjoyment of the book, rather they enhanced my reading, since I didn't know automatically what to expect from start to finish. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who has understood from our beloved Roger what the true essence of the universe really is.
  • Resurrection on Jan. 02, 2011

    Enjoyable storyline and plot. Good that there was a limitation on the protagonist as far as what he could do with his unique ability. Characterizations were great. Sara Reinke can definitely tell a compelling story. The only detractions were the intermittent misspellings, but the overall story was great.
  • The Birthday Surprise on Jan. 02, 2011

    The Birthday Surprise was a surprisingly enjoyable read. My only criticism is that is was too short. I would have enjoyed being titillated a bit longer (pun intended) by the eroticism of this story. Great job on Jessica Morse's ability to write a compellingly erotic story.
  • Monster Story on March 03, 2011

    McCarty Griffin proves with Monster Story that she not only understands what monsters are all about, but that she can take her knowledge and turn it into the best werewolf story ever placed on the market. Move over Lon Chaney. Take a hike you Twilight wannabes. McCarty Griffin is the new alpha in the werewolf pack and she has the story to prove it.

  • A Day For A Day on March 03, 2011

    In this debut novel from Donna Lee Comer you will find a slightly slow-paced, but nonetheless interesting story that is well worth the time spent on it. If your heart is weak or you can't stomach violence toward children or women, don't read A Day For A Day. If you enjoy hard-edged drama and deranged serial killers, start reading it now. For a more in-depth review on this eBook, visit here: http://crescentsunspublishing.blogspot.com/2011/01/day-for-day.html
  • Dangerous Times on March 03, 2011

    This story has its intermittent errors in grammar that need to be cleaned up, but none of them are enough to detract from a story that is as imaginative as it is fulfilling. Phillip Frey proves with Dangerous Times that he can deliver a tightly written page-turner that will leave you waiting for the sequel.

  • Half-Inch on April 10, 2011

    If your stomach is squeamish or you cannot stand violence against men (heh), then perhaps Half-Inch is not the story for you. If, however, reading a well-crafted tale of revenge and triumph is more to your liking, then download your copy of McCarty Griffin's imaginative novella and begin devouring page after page of exciting and well-plotted real-life drama that could one day find it's way onto the front page of the daily newspaper. Half-Inch, by McCarty Griffin is a spell-binding, mesmerizing story of our times and worth the read.

  • The Accidental Rebel on April 13, 2011

    Though interesting and certainly of high enough quality to be worthy of a full-length novel of its own, there were so many errors of almost every type within this short story that the enjoyment, at least for me, was completely ruined. Why the author of this story failed to take the teeniest bit of time in order to proof the outgrowth of his own creation is beyond my understanding. It took me little enough time to read this story; certainly it wouldn't have taken much more time than that for the author to make certain this imaginative piece was of the highest standard.
  • Reverse Metamorphosis Book One of the Irrevocable Change Trilogy on April 14, 2011

    In this raw, unbridled look at how an assassin might be made, R.E. Schobernd reveals intricacies of underworld crime that suggest he might know more than he's willing to admit, except within the pages of his fictional writing. Irrevocable Change is a chilling look into the life of an underworld hit man unlike any you have ever read before or are likely to read ever again.

  • The Blood That Bonds on April 25, 2011

    In The Blood That Bonds, we are thrust into a realm that is decidedly not of romance and frivolity as the heroine (Simply named "Two"), who is trapped in the role as a heroin-infected-prostitute and can't escape, beaten and abused by the pimp who "owns" her, meets Theroen, a vampire of no mean power, who falls in love with her and she with him. He turns her into one of the denizens of darkness, but these are vamps with a difference, due to their particular bloodline - up to a certain point in their night-existence these vamps can revert - if their sire dies - completely.

  • Needing Nita on May 01, 2011

    Author Norah Wilson is exceptionally gifted when it comes to writing about lust - and sex - and the fulfillment thereof. Needing Nita is one such example of that talented gift. It may be a short, short story, but it's free at Smashwords.com and worth the read even if you had to pay for it.

  • Where She Belongs Book One on May 05, 2011

    Attorney Matthew Kingston is beginning to realize his younger brother might be connected to a mob family and engaging in criminal practices, up-to and including murder. Advertising executive Justina Lindsey is begining to see things about her boyfriend and almost fiancee that suggest he is not only the son of a crime boss, but actively involved in his father's criminal activities. In Where She Belongs, by Lisa Vandiver, we discover a convoluted storyline as well as dramatic plot involving two star-crossed lovers whose passions might lead each of them into more trouble than they already have on their own.

  • Land of Nod, The Artifact on May 14, 2011

    This well-crafted adventure may perhaps be written as a story for young adults, but it has all the requirements to make it equally as interesting a tale for adults (if you will excuse my using such a coarse and vulgar term) who yearn to be more than what we - er, I mean they - are; who see in this adventure tale the possibility once more of becoming that which each of us knows is buried deep within our beings, waiting, panting, begging to be set free. Land of Nod, The Artifact, by Gary Hoover, an exciting action/adventure story that will set your minds free to be all that you knew you always were to begin with.

  • The False Man on June 04, 2011

    An excellent drama of life through the eyes of a man forced by circumstance to assume the identity of not only a dead man, but someone he himself killed. The False man is one of those stories impossible to put down, because it makes the reader want to know what exactly is happening in the bizarre life of this False Man.

  • Mortal Ghost on June 09, 2011

    Mortal Ghost is a soul-searching story of mystery, drama, love and adventure that will keep you turning page after page after page until the end comes looming up at you and you realize there needs to be more. Perhaps there will be, but for now, the author leaves us with a satisfying ending that weaves its way into our minds and hearts and lets us know this author knows how to tell a story.

  • Clip on June 14, 2011

    Clip, by Kenneth Wayne is provocative in more ways than one as he weaves this spellbinding novel that explores and explodes myths about many theories some of us just might hold as truth. For the full review on this eBook visit: http://crescentsunspublishing.blogspot.com/2011/06/soul-travel-on-sexy-side.html
  • Fatal Boarding on June 22, 2011

    In Fatal Boarding E. R. Mason gives an adventurous account of life among the stars for those who prefer traveling "out there" rather than remaining land-bound. For a fun adventure with plenty of fast-paced action, download your copy of Fatal Boarding from Smashwords.

  • Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish (A Free Short Story) on July 12, 2011

    Excellent story. Stephen Leather at his best. This is a locked room mystery of the highest order. Just as with the old stories that have all but gone out of vogue (unfortunately) Inspector Zhang excels at looking at the clues he has available and deducing who the murderer is. Forensics be hanged! With a detective like this Asian Inspector, who needs DNA?
  • God in the Machine: a short story on Aug. 07, 2011

    Interesting short story. Good writing skills and progression, but leaves me with too many unanswered questions. Still, well done.
  • Frannie the Titless Wonder on Sep. 06, 2011

    Hit another home run out of the park for Nikki Palmer. She keeps writing hot little erotica numbers that are intended for one thing and one thing only (I think) and that's to get people aroused. This latest offering from this High Priestess of "hard romance" does exactly that in a strange little story about a girl with no tits who meets a nerd with no sexual control. Do they mesh together enough to get the job done? Read the story and find out for yourself.
  • Briefs (A Collection of Short Stories) on Sep. 21, 2011

    Dive on in and see what's waiting in this collection of briefs. The first one will definitely grab your attention, and if you're male, make you hard, if you're female, make you wet. Rush knows his shit when it comes to sex.
  • Buttcrack Betty on Oct. 06, 2011

    As usual Nikki Palmer has written a humorous and highly sexualized story that I can only label as "Hard Romance". It stops short of being plain old porn, but goes far beyond the usual romance story, so what else can I call it? If you want an entertaining read that will make oyou laugh and get you off, Buttcrack Betty is the one to do it.
  • Pace's Naughty Christmas on Dec. 12, 2011

    Phew! That was an interesting read. Rebecca Glass has a style all her own that always makes me hard so that I shiver as I read the sexual scenes in her books. This one was no different.
  • The Freebie on Dec. 15, 2011

    This is a GREAT book. The sex is a little lighter than most erotica, but that's good, cause the plot is more developed. Actually this story reminds me more of a classic literature story written back when people knew how to write. Not like the crap most people publish these days. Kathy Rowe is growing in her experience in writing and is on her way to being a serious talent to butt heads with. Wouldn't surprise me to see a "Big Time" print publisher checking her out real soon. And to think this book is FREE on here.
  • The Chocolate Sword Swallower on Jan. 01, 2012

    K. Rowe has a unique style for an erotica writer. She doesn't always write a story the same way most in her genre would. Instead she seems to see the story and let it dictate what tone it will take, making each one she writes a unique experience. This one is like that. Here we have a story that shows us how things might be if a circus sword swallower got it on with a man who has a dick longer than most men's forearms. What developes is a steamy story that makes us wish we were one or the other of the participants. Reading this story will make you yearn to run away and join the circus, but only in the hopes of finding a sexual experience like the characters in this story.
  • Dreams and Deja Vu on Jan. 15, 2012

    A truly sexy, HOT, mysterious story by Gwendolyn Cummings. This story moves us through a period of years with lots happening in the lives of the main characters in their real lives as well as their dreams. Much longer than what most erotica stories give us, too. Dreams and Deja Vu is a romantic/erotic read you will enjoy.
  • Triple-Forged Coupling on Jan. 18, 2012

    Interesting and provocative short that on the outset appears to be straightforward M/F sex and turns out to be...Well, you read and find out.
  • HYM and HUR on Jan. 26, 2012

    Anyone here old enough to remember the Twilight Zone? How about the early short stories of Isaac Asimov? If you are you'll get my meaning when I say reading Hym and Hur was like watching an episode of the Twilght Zone or reading one of Asimov's early stories. It has that "old time" feel to it which I find comforting and refreshing. Not many people write the way the "old masters" did and I think that's a shame. Hym and Hur is a brief, but interesting concept that perhaps could be expanded on a bit (Which is why I only gave it four stars), but still, it gets the story across in a fun way that made me feel as though I was sitting in front of the old black and white TV we had when I was a kid watching Rod Serling introduce this week's show. Definitely worth reading.
  • Riding with Jesse on March 09, 2012

    This is Gwen's BEST story to date. Loved the artistic style and imagery in all the scenes. The eroticism was seriously arousing to the max.
  • The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success on March 27, 2012

    The book everyone has been waiting for and it's FREE. Thanks to Mark Coker for giving us what we need to make all our books a success.
  • Spanking the Bride on Aug. 12, 2012

    I just finished Spanking the Bride (That sounds so wrong when I say it like that) and I have to say that Gwendolyn Cummings did a very good job in portraying a story wherein the bride has a condition of liking sex - with more than one man - a bit too much. If you enjoy multiple partners (All at once) and a variety of sexual innovations, Spanking the Bride delivers.
  • Blood Bath (Seven Free Jack Nightingale Short Stories) on May 02, 2014

    An excellent story from Stephen Leather on one of his most enjoyable characters. Jack Nightingale is at best a rascal hiding in sheep's clothing, especially in how he treats his long-suffering assistant, Jenny, but the style in which he is written leaves us always wanting to see more of his adventures. Then there are the other stories in this volume, each one penned by a different author and most of those are written in the same manner in which Leather intended his hero be viewed. There is one story amongst these I could live without, but all the others written by, Alex Shaw, Andrew Peters, Conrad Jones, Matt Hilton, and Robert Waterman, exhibit the wonderful style in their writing that makes me want to find other books by these authors and read them as well.
