|Quest the Insane Elf|
7/5/06: I will not be updating on FP anymore (though I haven't in at least a year). Just figured I'd make that official. If you want to beta read the new rewrite of The Fairies' Game or want to reread anything I posted on FP before, shoot me an email. Posting on here isn't worth giving up first publishing rights...and I'm getting close to that point in my work, I think.
The obligatory extended summaries for what's left:
Trail of Shadows: The second book of "The Fairies' Pawns" series (first part being The Fairies' Game, now deleted but in rewrite). It's kinda painful to read because I had big issues with Toby, but Rystal was always my favorite. It runs a double story line of two Outcasts: an orphaned boy with a voice like no other and a jaded, cynical femal soldier hiding from her memories, who are both unwilling to come to terms with the destiny the Fairies made for them. Random review sez: "the battle scene in White Flag Over Crimson Snow is one of the best I've ever read..."
End of All Treasures: Finally, the characters of TFG and TOS come together to stop evil people from taking over the world and all the old cliches...If you're either a)tired of fictionpressers who have grand ideas for a sprawling epic but abandon it halfway, or b) looking for something that is plot-wise and style-wise very high quality among FPers, give it a try. It's finished (yes, I decided against a fourth book, don't kill me!), and I know how to punctuate dialogue. Oh, and the ending is...unique. I'm not being arrogant. It's just an observation. Random reviewer sez: "OH MY GOD. The first thing I did when I finished was stop breathing..."
My personal recommendation for Fictionpress reading these days is Queen of Glass by SJ Maas. There. I've admitted it: I still read stuff here, hypocrite that I am.
