Well, it is exciting to me anyway! I have a new website...and publisher for my next original book! If you have a moment, please check me out at Rennie St. James (no spaces or dots) dot com. You can get info on the next book there and feel free to contact me using that site too!
Thanks for humoring me...now back to the Profile...
I am fairly new to the FictionPress site but I have been an active Fanfic writer for CW's Arrow for over a year now. I won't repeat the info from my profile on FFnet but I will give some basic details just to introduce myself on this site!
First, I have always been an avid reader (both books and fanfic) for most of my life so I know there's nothing more wonderful than falling in love with amazing characters and an incredible story! I also know that a great story stays with you forever and can change you! Now, I won't pretend that my writing will do that for you but I know that is what I aspire to anyway! :)
I did the basic writing in school and college as was required but I didn't fall in love with writing until I posted my first Arrow fanfics in December 2013. It was a terrifying and exhilarating experience and I very quickly become addicted to it! I truly can't imagine what I would do if I wasn't writing so I hope to continue regardless of the format.
I am very glad I took those first steps into the writing world as it is now a very important part of my life. It was difficult to post that first time and even now, after 25 stories, I still get nervous every time I post something! Fortunately, I've found most reviewers to be sincerely kind, welcoming, and encouraging. I write just for myself but it is so much better when you can share it with others and they enjoy it too!
I do absolutely enjoy writing fanfic as I am able to work with established and beloved characters in an existing world and time frame. However, I couldn't resist the pull to create my own characters and world so I have used Amazon to self-publish my first book (Nadya's World)! A prequel to the book is currently posted here and will hopefully add an even greater depth to the characters and that story. I have just decided to post the full book here as well - a new chapter each week so check that out pls! I'm working on a continuation of the story/ sequel but it will focus on more than just Mia (for those that read my Arrow fanfic, I have created my own Team Arrow)! ;) I don't think anyone would need to read Nadya's World to understand the as yet unnamed sequel as I will cover the salient points but once again details add depth! It is still a work in progress but I am having fun and hope to self-publish in April 2015.
I am certainly open to comments and suggestions so always feel free to contact me via PM or reviews! Thank you so much! Happy reading!
*BTW, for those wonderful readers from the Arrow fandom, thank you for checking this out! I know I couldn't make the leap to an original work without all the wonderful support I received from you guys! I do think my writing style is pretty similar to my fanfic stories so hopefully you will enjoy the short pieces here too! As you guys know, I do love hearing from you so pls don't be shy now! :)
Introduction to Nadya's World - Short story with a different character study for each chapter - 1st person POVs. As the title suggests, this story serves as an intro for my book (details below).
Nadya’s World [also available on Amazon]
Mia Rayner discovers a secret family past that reveals she is meant to be a protector of mankind and more specifically the protector of an 8 year old seer in a Romani tribe. She soon finds herself thrust into a new world of mystery and excitement as she agrees to train with an abrasive and reluctant warrior instructor. As her life starts to change, Mia realizes she must decide which world is hers and whether or not she will accept her fate as a rahki.
