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.
3/15/18: "The Lawn Gnomes Are Communists: and 12 Other Possibly Bizarre Short Stories" is available on lulu, amazon, NOOK, and the i books store. I've failed to notice until now that fictionpress does not show links. My wattpad is the exact same name as my account here, and to find my lulu account( the self publishing site and bookstore that i use to distribute out to others like amazon), simply search up the only work I have out as of right now. For my Serious published works, i write under "Xemjas R. L'shole"
