      Hello! I’m new here. I’ve been debating as to which group I should introduce myself in, and decided this one couldn’t hurt, as my in-progress series is perhaps best described as “realistic fantasy.” Anyway, I’ve been writing as long as I can remember, but it hasn’t been until recently that I decided it was time to take it up a notch. I’m here to learn and improve…

        Hi! Welcome! I’m also relatively new here myself, and I’m so glad you’re joining us. I’ve had tons of fun here and learned a lot, and I hope you will, too!

          You can also introduce yourself in the Introduce Yourself page!

          Nice to meet you!

            Hi Zee!

            It’s always good to meet other writers!

              Oops, sorry! I didn’t realize there was an Introduce Yourself page.

                  Well, I went ahead and posted the first chapter of my WIP on the Contemporary Fiction Writers forum, because I think it might fit a bit better there than here…but I’d love feedback from anyone and everyone. In fact, I’d really like to find a couple of critique partners who’d be willing to give me a more in-depth chapter-by-chapter look at the whole thing. I’d be happy to do the same in exchange.

                    Welcome! (As Thwapling said, it’s all good that you missed the ‘introduce yourself’ page.) When I joined I stumbled on it by accident. (;

                    Have you ever published a book? How old are you? What are some of your favorite things to do? Do you have any pets?

                      I went looking for it and I STILL haven’t found it. LOL. Anyway, I’m in my middle thirties, so a bit older than some of you here, I suspect.

                      I have self-published two books so far, Wrong Place, Right Time, and Final Chance. They’re the two prior stories in the series I’m currently working on. You can find them on Amazon, but they’re published under the name E.B. Roshan instead of Zee (for obvious reasons.)

                      As for pets, I used to have several birds, including a one-eyed finch named Tambal. Now I have two young boys, so I don’t need pets.

                      Thanks for asking!
