I wrote a book. Now it's nothing phenomenal, (way to sell it, self) but I've published it on Amazon and I'd really love it if people checked it out. It took me just about nine months to complete, and I'm hoping to continue the series with a short story introduction of a major character that takes place between the book I had out, and the other two to come. I'm about half way through the short story, but I'm not sure there's enough interest in my little project to warrant continuing. Although I may do so anyway considering how much I love writing. Who knows you, might love this little book written by a fellow nerdfighter, which would please me to no end. Anyway, here it is. Let me know what you think, and DFTBA!
I've just had a look at your excerpt - it was good! Effusive praise is not my forte, so I'll only say this:
It had a surprisingly honest undertone.
I think you should continue, whatever the rest of the world thinks of it. My stories are always either too incomplete or not good enough (usually both) to show the world, but I won't stop writing them. Stories are things in which one can immerse oneself; whatever the rest of the planet, this one is yours and is what you think it must be.
They're like friends, waiting to be carved out of the dull, grey rock; you know?
As I say, my praise is generally repetitive or/and devoid of any point, so I won't try a long-winded critique; but I liked it. I really did.
DFTBA :) And good luck!
Thanks! That really means a lot! And I am still writing, although this book took nine months (In that way it's also like a person) to be ready. Now I have to work on the two novel-length sequels, the short story sequel, and an unrelated book that I think highly enough of (rare for me to like my own work that much) to want to get an agent and get it properly published (Although that one is the slowest going, the need for it to live up to itself is occasionally unbearable, but I'm marching slowly through it) AND I just started back at school. But you're right. I can't stop writing. I know it's a rare thing, but I think if I work at it hard and well enough it can be my carrier someday. Here's hoping. Thanks again!
