I HAVE A WATTPAD ACCOUNT UNDER THE SAME USER NAME AND AM THINKING OF LEAVING FICTIONPRESS.

REQUESTING BETA READERS FOR "I Am Not Your Maid!" & " Monster"!

"Think of a book special to you, and how much bleaker and poorer your life would be if that one writer had not existed—if that one writer had not, a hundred times or a thousand, made the choice to write. You’re going to be that one writer, one day, for somebody you may never meet. Nobody can write that book you’re going to write—that book that will light up and change up a life—but you."— Sarah Rees Brennan

“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ― George Orwell

"Writers don't write to get published.
They write for the love of writing.
Because if they were not writing,
they wouldn't know what to do."

About Joflower:

Greetings. I have been a member on this site for over 12 years and used to write teen fiction while I was in high school. Now in my mid-twenties, done college and university, I am pursing my love of writing again in hopes of getting published some day. It was difficult to find my creative voice again after years of structured essay writing, but now I'm getting more ideas than I can keep up with.

Current projects:

Wild Child - (Young Adult - Fantasy/Romance) - ON HOLD
Maj lived alone on an island with her animal companions for as long as she could remember. Life was simple and innocent for her--until a crew of sailors washed ashore. All that changes as she becomes entangled with the lives of the men. Moreover, she finds herself strongly attracted to one of them. As Maj struggles to understand herself & her growing feelings for a certain captain, she comes to realize that there is something different about her. Why does she have no memory of her past? Why can she talk to animals but the men can't? Who are her parents and what happened to her family? And what does the God of Death want with her? But when Maj learns the truth will she sacrifice everything she knew--and the man she came to love? (tween/teen fiction)

I'm Not Your Maid! - (Manga - Humor/Romance) - ON HOLD
How does a player get the girl? By stealing a kiss. Works every time. But the girl he wants is out of his league. The solution: blackmail her innocent co-worker.
A cosplay maid is about to get her cover blown by the hottest guy in school - unless she agrees to his demands.
Yuriko is a goal-focused student working at the new cosplay maid cafe in Toronto. With her sights set on Tokyo U next year, she has no time for distractions outside of her school work and her new job. Then Dash walks into the cafe - and her life.
Dash is the gorgeous, popular guy at school who can get any girl he wants - except for Elizabeth, Yuriko's co-worker. He is arrogant, over-confident, flirtatious, and knows how to get what he wants. He's not about to give up, even after Elizabeth turns him down.
It's like a game to him and he'll use Yuriko to get close to Elizabeth, but what happens when Yuriko falls under his spell like every other girl?

Monster (Origins of Darkness, Book 1) - (Paranormal - Romance/Mystery) - ON HOLD
"If you want to keep your life--stay away from me. I don't want to be responsible for your death."
If you had the power to kill, would you?
In Mikayla's world, it's an ability that she must conceal behind a disguise in order to protect them all--from herself.
She's a leather jacket wearing, motorcycle driving, flip you the finger, 17-year-old badass with a deadly secret.
She is a monster. And monsters are not worthy of kindness, friendship, family, or even love.
Then the Wright family welcomed her into their home, and Isaac stepped into her life.
Suddenly, her life, her self-control, her chaos--it was all spinning out of control.
Could you love a monster, even if it meant risking your life?

The "Origins of Darkness" series is a prequel to my upcoming series, "Darkness Falls" (Which I've been told sounds similar to the MI series, but keep in mind I've never read that series... yet). Darkness Falls has a lot of interesting and deep characters that I won't be able to get into details with because the series isn't about them. Thus, Origins was created for those characters, and I'm writing Origins first so that I have everyone's stories (background) fully developed. Plus I love these characters, so I want to write more about them, ha.

Origins of Darkness:
Book 1 - Monster (in progress)
Book 2 - Renegade (coming soon)
Book 3 - Seraphim (coming soon)

Coming in the future:

Awake my Heart - (Romance - Drama/Angst)
Because of You
- (Romance - Drama/Angst)
The DD - (Historical Fiction - Drama/Romance)
To Be Lily - (General Fiction - Drama/Sci-fi)

Trilogies coming in the future:

Life Burns - (Action - Romance/Drama)
Darkness Falls - (Paranormal - Drama/Romance)
