Author has written 4 stories for Horror, and Fantasy.

I go by Xem or Xemjas. I've always had a passion for writing. I chose to join fiction-press in hopes that opening my horizons could not only further expose my works of literature to a wider audience, but could also help me improve my writing. I'm a fan of most genres, but I've always had a particular fondness for horror and fantasy. That doesn't mean I like any other genre any less from what I can say off the top of my head though.

I don't have much else to say, so feel free to just read what I post and give honest criticisms. I say this because too many people see "constructive criticism" as only the good parts of their story or book being shown off. If you have a criticism about one of my stories or works, consider the following before you say it:

"Is this thing in there good/bad? Yes, I think it is" but also "Why is this thing in there good/bad? Here's why, and here's reasoning/proof to support my point."

Obviously the format that you're going to give your criticism is up to your own style of commenting. All of that aside, I hope enjoy what you see on here.

Update: 11/17/17- If you're interested in my work on other sites, I have a Wattpad where I post the same content along with a few different and more exclusive works.

Update: 12/14/17- I now have my first book out, "The Lawn Gnomes Are Communists: and 12 Other Possibly Bizarre Short Stories"! Some of the stories in it are ones I put on my wattpad and my account here for sampling and preview purposes.

A new employee doesn't get the inside joke that's shared within an office clique. Maybe it's better to not understand things sometimes though, right?
