    1. Re: Does anyone else have an authors personality and engagement effect their experience?

      Even though I still liked his novels it kinda soured the whole thing for me. Like I can't fully separate the author from the fiction at that point even if I try. Now my favourite author is Brandon (...)


    2. Re: First person POV Novels

      Everything I write is first person and fantasy of some kind. I'm not sure if my fight scenes are super strong or not, but I'm pretty sure they're not terrible lol 


    3. Re: August Thread - Promote your Story

      https://i.ibb.co/2cFXtYx/Wicked-honey-over.jpg Juniper Savine has three goals: first, to clear her father's name. Second, to win the competition to become the king's head chef. Third, to get revenge. (...)


    4. Re: Do all stories read like games on this site?

      Mine don't, and I'm writing four of them *shameless plug* 


    5. Re: New book, new cover

      A very well done cover. I like the slightly crooked smile. Shows the character's got an attitude. Thanks! And she definitely does, I’m glad that came through :)


    6. Re: New book, new cover

      Very nice! I love your artwork. It's like Disney with a twist. Thank you for choosing to release this here instead of Vella. XD Thanks! I’ve done a lot of art for Disney merchandise, maybe it rubbed (...)


    7. Re: New book, new cover

      https://i.ibb.co/GTgQwtg/Wicked-honey-over.jpg I originally meant to post this one on Kindle Vella but realized it would take forever to start getting reads there, so I pulled it and posted it here instead. (...)


    8. Re: Dealbreaker Tropes

      “Finally, the wailing-screaming-gnashing of teeth when it comes to death.  Sure, I cried when I watched Bambi.  I was five.  Seven years later, I straight up executed Bambi's daddy from fifty yards. (...)


    9. Re: Review swap for a story that isn't the RR usual

      One of my stories, Stormstruck, is a paranormal fantasy romance in a modern/high tech setting with gothic overtones, necromancy, and all kinds of magical monster-related things. If it sounds interesting (...)

    11. Re: Fantasy with Autistic Characters

      My main characters for Stormstruck and Mirefall are both autistic :) And Stormstruck is urban fantasy, too. I'm autistic myself so I tend to write my characters that way by default. links in signature (...)


    12. Re: Escape to a glittering world of art, magitech, and transforming lesbians

    13. Re: Art and Writing: One or the Other or Both talents?

      I think I’m equally good at art and writing, perhaps better at writing—though it’s visual art that I do for a living (my book covers are some examples of my work). I find visual art to be much more challenging (...)


    14. Re: Where did inspiration for your fictional world come from?

      For Mirefall it came from walking through the woods after they'd flooded a bit. The tannins of the dead leaves seep into the water, creating a melting-rainbow effect almost like an oil slick. I was like (...)


    15. Re: Vampires: Are they overdone? Is there still something you can do with them?

      As long as you can bring something interesting and a little different to the table with your vampires and their lore without abandoning the things that make them compelling, I think they're absolutely (...)


    16. Re: Dealbreaker Tropes

      Surprised no one mentioned this, but I never really liked the prophecy or chosen one trope.  It's never explained how someone a thousand years ago prophesized someone or something happening all those (...)


    17. Re: Dealbreaker Tropes

      Tell me about the tropes you absolutely hate, please.  The ones where even if a book is perfect for you in every other way, you’ll drop it the instant this trope shows up


    18. Re: Posting story previews on RR: is it not cool?

      If you're upfront from the beginning, it's probably technically okay, but most people won't like it. I think Vella is going after a different market--Kindle Unlimited customers who are already in (...)


    19. Re: Posting story previews on RR: is it not cool?

      I was considering Vella so it's good to know that they have these weird requirements, so now I know I don't want to work with them. I've generated a huge following on Wattpad but only 1% have expressed (...)


    20. Re: Posting story previews on RR: is it not cool?

      You would need to be upfront about the story being a preview and not post your three chapters and then mention it at the end of chapter three. You're going to just lose a lot of potential readers because (...)
