Derrick is no ones hero. He is barely dealing with his mundane life when all of humanity is forced to confront the extraordinary. Overnight, all across the world, mysterious machines appear. They offer people the chance to purchase almost anything they can think of. Weapons, medicine and even super human abilities are offered, seemingly for free.
But following these machines, come the Scourges. The most dangerous creatures, diseases and machines that infest the universe. Ever growing and battling, these empires of horror and hunger will overhelm and devour the Earth and its inhabitants. Unless Derrick and humanity can stand against all the horrors that battle between the stars.

Gods, demons, and heroes. Typical MMO fare—or so I thought.
When my guild dragged me into Jeriskyr Online, I expected I’d be playing the latest VR game. Nothing could have been further from the truth. You see, the gods like to trade people. Chosen by the gods of Jeriskyr and betrayed by my own, I found out that this virtual world is all too real.
Now, I must choose between my own people and a cocky incubus.
It should be an easy decision, yet I find my loyalties torn between the tyrannical and backwards Issradian Empire, or the oppressed demon kingdom, Nabyr-zahn. To embrace injustice or betray my own race.
Or maybe I’ll just burn it all down.
I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for their support in this journey. The first book, of which a sample is included here, is available on Kindle in ebook and paperback form on Amazon and is now enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. Much editing and gnashing of teeth has taken place since the first drafts were uploaded here, so I hope you enjoy. I will continue uploading Book 2 as chapters are completed.
Everyone on the street that day saw a lunatic wearing strange brass goggles, swinging an invisible sword on the sidewalks of downtown Seattle. But Jacob recognizes what the man is really doing—playing a game in augmented reality. When the game’s creator offers him his own goggles, Jacob enters a city he thinks he knows. But towering monuments of Victorian architecture have replaced the skyscrapers. Airships float between the buildings. Fearsome enemies, from steam-powered rabbits to clockwork werewolves lurk in every shadow.
But with the game comes a quest, and to the victors go the deed to Steam Whistle Alley, the social and financial heart of the game. Jacob, his biosynthetic monkey Banjo, and the rest of the team must face off against foes who want the alley for themselves. Some of his adversaries, however, aren’t playing games. They don’t want the alley. They want the company, and the death they bring is not the kind Jacob can respawn from.

The God of Balance, Nalithor, was born a Devillian prince. Twisted monstrosities and unhinged deities are a threat to the world’s mortals. His duty is to restore order, yet his superiors block every move he makes.

King Grey has unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in a world governed through martial ability. However, solitude lingers closely behind those with great power. Beneath the glamorous exterior of a powerful king lurks the shell of man, devoid of purpose and will.
Reincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, the king has a second chance to relive his life. Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however. Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again.
What defines endgame content? Is it raiding epic dungeons to take down the strongest bosses there are, or is it facing off against other players to climb the ladder and become the top PvPer? Is endgame content gathering materials and crafting the strongest and most exotic equipment that there is, or is it all about playing the market and amassing more wealth than everybody else? Some people even argue that fashion and minigames are endgame content!
Ryouta has already done all of that. Having spent most of his life playing MMO after MMO, he now finds himself wanting to live a virtual life that is far more relaxed and casual than what he is known for.
To Ryouta, the true endgame is fishing.

An inexplicable reincarnation into the magical world of Harry Potter!!
An avid fan of the series is born into this magical world with quite detailed knowledge about it. With his fore knowledge, he has the ability to influence the timeline or characters in many ways. Let us see how the story unfolds now …. after this new character has entered it.
All characters belong to the magical writer JK Rowling. I sole own Darius and let him play in the open sandbox that is Rowling's world.
What if you were transported to a fantasy world with no special abilities, no OP weapons and no status screen to boost your stats? Never mind finding the dragon’s treasure or defeating the Demon Lord, you only need to worry about one thing—how to stay alive.
A group of young Brits wake up in a strange, fantastical land with creatures from myth and legend. They are given archaic weapons they don't know how to use and told to do their best.
Convinced it has to be some kind of virtual reality RPG, all the people summoned form parties and set off on their adventures, leaving behind the people nobody wants in their group.
Story of my life, thinks Colin.
BOOK 8; Welcome to Shrine Island starts April 2nd.
Chapters released three days a week, Monday-Wednesday-Friday.
We all have dreams of becoming powerful, becoming the cool mage that rules the world, living as the dashing rogue who can steal a kingdom's entire royal treasury undetected, or perhaps, the valiant knight whose prowess on the battlefield is unmatched by all.
However, when the apocalypse strikes, you can only use what you have at your disposal, be that guns, baseball bats, your fists, or maybe, just maybe, a shovel.
One young man who goes by the name of Darenzo has just had his world altered into one that is now the focal point of some sort of experiment.
Just at the end of his shift at the skip site, a worldwide announcement was made, that not only changed Darenzo's life, but also the lives of all of the Earth's inhabitants.
Can Darenzo survive and thrive in this changed world? Or will his growing madness best him? The answers to these question can only be revealed with time.

This novel is a participant in The Writer's Pledge
Min was born in a tribe of Goblins, where she became a hunter due to her great stats. As a hunter, she lived a simply life with her hunting friends, leveling peacefully. But what happens when the Elven Kind discovers a great source of Mithril in their little cave system?
Warning: This fiction will contain great amounts of sex and violence. Goblin society in my story is a carnal one, where everyone has sex with everyone, even there own siblings... maybe parents too, who knows. Min will be subject to gang bangs by her hunting friends from chapter 2 onwards, albeit, willingly. Rape might enter the story in the future and it also might not.
This is a story I write on a whim, just for fun. I can't promise very regular releases, since I work 12 hours every day.
Harem tag is more of a reverse Harem tag, I guess. Although, it's also possible that she will become part of a harem. I haven't really planned anything :P
It appears that I have transmigrated to another universe, but where is my crippled dantian and broken meridians? How come I don’t have garbage talent? Surely there must be a world shaking artifact waiting to be found right???
What’s that, I’m the young master who the hero is going to trample over? The stepping stone that’s forgotten in 20 chapters?
“To hell with that, I’m the one who is going to be doing the face slapping here”
(The mc is going to defy every cliché trope I can think off and turn things his way)
I don't own the cover. It just fits my image of the protagonist and I'll probably change it in the future.
The average person can easily understand that when it comes to living in a villain-infested, crime-filled city like Brockton Bay, treating life like a game can get you killed.
It's kind of ironic, then, that Greg Veder has always been far more serious about games than he ever has about life. (Worm/The Gamer AU)

Author’s Note: Hey, if you like Town building please come in and read my story. My main focus will be writing a fun story about a struggling MC trying to gain power and a little bit of safety in his new life. Since I am starting a business and have a family I will be posting infrequently. Additionally, there will be errors in spelling and grammar, but I am being up front about it, please leave specific feedback and I will gladly correct it. Cover art is not my own and I will be returning from Hiatus soon 4/27/18

Death and Reincarnation.
Kuroe Makoto, the tomboyish ace of her high school track and field club, never spared a thought for these things before. However, when she falls asleep in her Tokyo home after an exhausting marathon and wakes up in a fantasy world, those concepts become her reality. And unlike in the common light novel setting, she isn't reincarnated as the naturally good-looking and talented human hero who gathers a harem effortlessly.
In fact, she isn't reincarnated as a human at all. She is reborn as 'Chaos', child of the demon queen and heir to a kingdom at war with humanity.
Maou Shoujo Magical Chaos puts the Japanese high school girl in a tentacle monster, in this strange tale of a sound human mind possessing a horrifying creature's body.
Join Chaos on her oftentimes humorous but also perilous journey through a world of sword and sorcery, as she discovers a newfound appetite for life, terror, and having sex with demi-human girls.
This story features just yuri, as the female protagonist only has interest in other females.
Current Release Schedule: One to two chapters every week. Expect an announcement if I can't keep to that.
Pledge of Completion: With the release of the ebook on Amazon, I pledge that this series will never be dropped, and see completion.

In a future where virtual reality MMORPGs become mainstay, a cynical 14-year-old girl plays the most popular game with two controllers, controlling two characters at once.

The following is an edgy adventure of survival, relationships, and growth into adulthood in a world where everything is trying to kill her.
A child blessed by the Astral.
An unprecedented destiny.
Watch his path, as he marches up the stairway of Heaven.
A March of a Sovereign.

[Adventure, Wuxia, Martial Arts, Fantasy]
This is a Qihuan novel; it has eastern and western fantasy elements. More often than not in Xianxia or Xuanhuan there is a severe lack of character development, being a western writer I'm changing that. My characters, from my totally unbiased view, feel fleshed out and actually have emotions.
This is my first attempt at a novel, I'm writing as a means to better convey my thoughts. I will, hopefully, steadily improve chapter-by-chapter.
I'm very open to feedback and constructive criticism. As one can see this is a cultivation novel, so you know how this goes. I've decided to jump-start the whole rags-to-riches scenario. He is strong from the start and is given the utility to do so.
*The cover art is not my own, all rights reserved to the owner. I will take it down if necessary.
*The style of the recent chapters is comparatively different than Chapter 1.

Nathan Jacobs was just another kid from suburban US. No super powers, no special skills, and, more importantly, no direction. With his senior year of high school coming to an end, Nate is approached by representatives of the international law agency, UNIX. They want him, as well as a team of two other teenagers to infiltrate a college in the mid Pacific called Nowhere Island University.
However, Nowhere Island University is not a normal school. Nate, due to enrolling in the Academy of Military Science as part of his mission, is thrust into the brutal Hell Semester, a special course for the people who want to be mercenaries. There, he meets mob hitmen, former child soldiers, mysterious martial artists, cat girls working for secret societies, and many more strange people.
Meanwhile, events outside NIU are transpiring, threatening to destroy the world, or maybe just kill a huge amount of people. Can Nathan stop it? Or will he die in Hell Semester?
Updates every Wednesday.
Vincent was relaxing in physics class when he and his entire class were teleported into a vast other world, where everybody called themselves cultivators and fought with magical martial arts.
Vincent gained power over plants, allowing him to turn seeds into all sorts of vegetation. He ventures out into this new world filled with phony cultivators to set the record straight. He can make one declaration with absolute certainty, “I am the only real cultivator!”
You will see an overpowered main character with a cheat ability. You will see "comedy". You will see a normal guy who gets teleported to another world. You won't see ruthless MC who turns kills everybody that offends him. You won't see philosophy essays. You won't see harem. You will see classic wuxia elements like Qi cultivation and alchemy. You will see good grammar.
It's essentially everything I like about light novels, web novels, and wuxia all shoved into one story.
If you’d like an unholy mix of overpowered main character, wuxia, fantasy, and LitRPG - give The Only Real Cultivator a try.
The Arcane Magnus dies, only to find himself in the body of a ten-year-old noble in a medieval Kingdom. In this world where magic is undeveloped, he shall once again pave a new path.
