It’s been just over one month since The Demon Girl was posted on WattPad, and boy oh boy do I have an update to deliver.
The story is now Featured alongside other impressive works, and the response is wonderful. I feel all warm and fuzzy. Ah, I started a thread to see if anybody would be interested in putting forward a few lines of their poetry to introduce my ten chapters, and I've got some really good ones. I've posted them below, so beautiful. I’ll be posting links to the poets profiles on my website shortly. I’ll definitely be doing the same thing early Spring for the sequel. Anyway, The Demon Girl passed 14,000 reads! I'm thrilled, and pleased to be a part of the community.
I want to give a shout out to @TheShadowThief and @Archleone for wonderful reviews of the Demon Girl and fabulous WIP’s. I've enjoyed reading @Archleone's the Knight Casefiles: Revelations, which is told by Christopher, a champion of humanity chosen to wield the power of a powerful sword called Gram. Christopher’s witty personality is fun to read, but the various supernatural elements, like a fierce Valkryie warrior for a guardian, keeps things interesting. And @TheShadowThief's The Eternal Winter, a story told from the P.O.V of a wolf, a story that captured my imagination and had me thinking about the story at random times over the last few weeks. Lastly, I want to mention @Warrior_Prophet who’s poetry I can’t get out of my head, in particular this poem, Pledge of the White Night.
I do try to respond to everyone who fans me, but they get queued with comments on other sites, tweets, emails, facebook and goodreads comments (gasp), but I will respond to answer any questions and say thank you as soon as I can, so bear with me.
