I am an auto-didactic writer currently re-writing a partially written rough draft of my second novel and uploading my revised first novel on a steady schedule. I have not missed a single upload deadline since I've begun, and, boys and girls, we're going to be well over 90 chapters in by the end of it!
I specialize in what I call Post Genre work, weird and intimate, emotionally intelligent and humanistic.
Magical realism, fantasy, science fiction, drama, the macabre, the weird, romance, eroticism, the deepest roots of storytelling tropes & mechanisms - these are my focus.
I typically write about being broken and the healing process - the "un-heroic". I am anti-everything.
Feminist, cynically optimistic, prone to gallows/inappropriate humor, Anarchistic, Bohemian, libidinous, untrusting of any group of rich people, reader, Bisexual, Satanist/Anti-theist/whatever you wish to call a dislike of faith institutions, gamer, movie and television fanatic. Incurably dandere. The high level of low end.
If you're interested in my work, why not Beta read for me? PM me for details.
Do not bug me with your work. There's no nicer way to put this than to be blunt and up front, and if you ignore this message, I will just send you something patronizingly nice or just "no".
Here are some sounds to put in your ear holes while reading either version of my novel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSenUDlXqtik16cNZnWSbPgWYsPq6FS6Z
I do not expect anyone to do anything AT ALL with this, but if you're not attached to your money, here's my Amazon Wish List, if you want to throw money at someone who doesn't deserve it. I have to say, gifts make me feel appreciated, but so do hugs: http://a.co/8tr0yeQ
Kait Nolan is stuck in an office all day, sometimes juggling all three of her jobs at once with the skill of a trained bear—sometimes with a similar temperament. After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. This Mississippi native has something for everyone, from short and sweet to Southern contemporary romance to action-packed paranormal—all featuring heroes you’d want to sweep you off your feet and rescue you from work-day drudgery. When not working or writing, Kait’s hanging out in her kitchen cooking and wishing life were a Broadway musical.
Her books are available on:
A passionate believer in helping others, she has founded a writing challenge designed for people who have a life (aka we NaNoWriMo rejects who can’t give everything up for the month of November). Please check out A Round of Words in 80 Days. http://aroundofwordsin80days.wordpress.com

My name is Robert Darius. I'm 24 years old, anime fan, all around rockin' guy. I'm in the middle of editing my first novel, which is an urban/epic fantasy set in my hometown of Prescott, Arkansas.
Speaking of, I'll be uploading the first book of my series onto this website. I mean, that's half of what this website is about, right? Feel free to give it a read, and if you like or have anything to say about it, leave a comment or a vote. It'll be good for the soul. I promise.
Hate it? Think it's downright dreadful? Don't be shy. Let me know.
I'm constantly editing the sections, so if you get a notification, then that's probably why. You could read it again. Just throwing that idea out there.
That's about all.
Greetings. I am Marianne G. Petrino. I have self-published Thundercats fan fiction for many years. My web page had all of my work to date. Sadly, in recent years, I have neglected it while I attempted to carve out a place for myself with more formal self-publishing, which began with the National Novel Writing Month of 2010. So on August 19, 2015, I took the web page down. Maybe I will put it all up here or on the archive for the Organization for Transformative Works. Still pondering my next move with the Thundercats fan fiction.
Before my "career" as an "author" came to a whimpering end, I had self-published two urban metaphysical, chick lit novels with an Italian twist, one travel memoir, and a young adult equine science fantasy. This last book only had a short sale run. I am putting it up here on Wattpad, so that more people can enjoy it, because I think it is my best book, and it might also do some good. ) If you enjoy my story, Silver Hooves in the Darkness, please consider making a donation to combat Fragile X, an inherited disease. You can check out the National Fragile X Foundation ( http://www.fragilex.org/ ) and Fraxa ( http://www.fraxa.org/ ). Thank you in advance for your consideration and kindness.
I continue to be involved with the SF Microstory contest on LinkedIn. That group has published an anthology of flash fiction called The Future Is Short: Science Fiction in a Flash. Volume 2 has just come out. Both are available at the usual online sources. You might be inspired to join the fun. I intend to post some of my entries that are not in the anthology.
My writing style tends to be formal and in third person, not a popular combination these days. However, I like to think that I tell a good tale. So I hope you will consider taking a journey in reading with me.
I'm a 30-something lover of all things paranormal, urban fantasy and sci-fi. When I'm not busy writing or crafting something in my workshop, I can be found reading, playing video games or binge watching tv shows with the hubby.

So, I must've rewritten this thing about eighteen thousand times, and it either comes across as super professional and stuffy or uncomfortably casual.
Where to start, hmm, I'm Aaron, a 23 year old not-so-fabulous gay living in America--aka, the country burning down in flames at present. I'm the (sometimes) proud father of a particularly prissy cat, and the even prouder uncle of two wonderful babies. My mom is my number one fan, and I look forward to the day she hobbles me like in 'Misery' and makes me change the endings to my stories.
With that, yup, Stephen King is my favorite author, and I hope to write as many books as him one day (seriously, though, does that man ever take a vacation?). By trade all my stories are LGBT with a strong, gay lead--I think visibility is important, and I suppose I have to be the change I want to see, so I'm trying to put more work of this spectrum into the world. Also, please forgive me any errors you might find, I swear I'm trying so hard--I go through two different editing processes before I post, and even after that I have people helping me spot the mistakes. Yet, somehow, magically, I am embarrassed and enraged to always find more the next day, so sorry about that.
But wait! Hopefully that won't distract too much from my stories, and I promise you'll have a crazy good time if you choose to take a peek at one of my works. Basically I spend all my free time in the darkness writing, and updates can come within the same day or a week later, depending. Anyways, I'm pretty simple, I like rock music, Xena, horror movies, and taking care of the elderly. Bet you didn't see that coming, gotcha! Plot twistin' already...
Well, I'm done rambling. If you've got any questions, thoughts... concerns... please feel free to drop a message in the ol' inbox--I promise I'm just constantly sitting on top of it waiting.
