Amped Up! is an urban fantasy/sci-fi novel about a young woman who has the ability to unconsciously amplify the talents and abilities of those she cares about--especially if those abilities happen to be supernatural! This is the story of the woman's meeting with her three lovers, and how she amplifies their psionic abilities in a fantastic way--as well as a story of what happens when word of her amplifying abilities reaches the ears of those who seek more power. Will her amped up lovers be able to keep her safe from harm?

This is a sample of a completed novel. It includes the prologue, chapters 1-3, 13, and 18. I would greatly love feedback on these chapters, especially whether or not you'd like to see this book published based on the chapters read. Thank you for reading!

TW/CW: This story features and explores some very dark themes in places. The female lead struggles with self-esteem issues that are further exacerbated when she is bullied and a slur is used against her. Her instructors are not nice people, expressing viewpoints and ideas that are not okay. One of her lovers-to-be is an assassin who goes after high profile, corrupt, and harmful individuals, but he's an assassin nonetheless. While the chapters posted don't actually cover this in any real detail (I think it's mentioned in passing in one instance in chapter 2), I want to point out that neither the female lead nor her lovers have had very pleasant pasts and are struggling to deal with these past pains and, in a few cases, past abuses. There is a happy ending for these characters, but they have to face a lot of adversity that gets pretty dark to get to that happy ending. If you are triggered by exploring these themes, even a brief mention of abuse, I would give this story a hard pass.
