Hmmm...what can I say. Well first I can explain the strange nickname. You see, I call my husband BooBoo, which started out aas a joke but ended in that permanently becoming his nickname. I rarely refer to him by his name anymore. To counter this, he decided to name me BooBerry, after a cereal that many people don't know actually existed. (or does it still exist?) lol.
Anyway, a friend of mine told me about this forum where I can read a lot of creative stories from aspiring authors or from people who just love to tell a good story. Since I love to read and tell stories, she felt like this would be a good place for me to visit. She also tells me it's a great place to get reviews on your work and to be able to tell the author what you think of their work. So, I decided it would be a good time to join up.
This being said, I love to read. I love it with a passion. So, if anyone would like me to read and review their stories, please don't hesitate to PM me with your requests. I am open to just about anything but prefer something with a supernatural twist. I love stories that involve ghosts, aliens, wolves, vampires (unless they are based on twilight. Though, twilight was an awesome work of fiction, there is only so much of it I can take. NO MORE SPARKLY VAMPS!) and anything that is very imaginative. I also love romance, drama, humor, etc.
There are, however, exceptions to the things I am willing to read. I am an adult and don't mind sexually explicit material as long as it's in good taste. There should be a good storyline to the story and the story should have more substance than just sex. I don't like simple 'jerkers.' What do I mean by 'jerkers?' Jerkers in my opinion are stories written like porn, very descriptive sex scenes with no real story behind them at all. I also would prefer not to read any explicit slash as I prefer the traditional M/F pairings. I'm not homophobic, I just prefer not to read any of those. I don't mind angst, but would prefer not to read a lot of explicit material about a incest, near rapes, rapes, etc. I just recently came across a story that was going well until I found out that the poor girl is almost always being molested, nearly raped, and had been raped before by a brother. There is only so much of it any girl would be able to take and most of it is ridiculous. There's no reason any character should go through that more than twice in a single story. (Just a personal opinion) I am also not interested in reading anything close to child porn. (No need to explain this)
Other than those few exceptions, I'm pretty much open to anything with good taste and a good storyline. I have no problem following stories from beginning to end and offering constructive reviews when needed.
I am also working on a story of my own that I will begin posting soon enough. I am open to any critism you may have on my style of writing and the story all together. I am currently looking for a good beta who wouldn't mind editting my chapters from the beginning to the end of the book. I will post a summary of the story here once I'm ready to post it. In the meantime, I will be doing a lot of reading. :)
Ok. I have a few chapters of my story ready so I'm going to go ahead and begin posting.
Okay I deleted Undone because I'm not really into the story myself. So for now I'll only be working on one story.
