    Hi there! I’m relatively new here. I just wanted to tell you this 😉 So, I stalked the forum before I got permission from my parents to join and I saw a discussion where you were talking about your book (The Cry of the Lost). So, out of curiosity I clicked the link and read what you had written so far. That was about 6 weeks ago probably and I’ve been keeping up with what you’ve written since then. I just wanted to say that I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! The message you are sending through it is AMAZING!!! Just wanted to encourage you to press on and finish it! 🙂

    • @brooka3 Hey there, fellow stalker! 😉 I’m glad you like the novel so far! I post a chapter every few days or so if you want to keep reading it. I honestly didn’t think it was that good, but I am my worst critic, lol. If there’s anything I can improve on, please don’t hesitate to comment in the Doc! (Nobody’s commented so far besides me.) I would love to receive any comments or questions or pointers anyone has!

      If you’d like to read something else I wrote, I just published my first novel last month. I wrote it when I was 13, so the writing style is more underdeveloped, but again, I’m my own worst critic. It’s on Amazon, if you’re interested. Just look up “The Hunted Past” by Myriah Joy Grabish (my real name, but don’t tell anybody). Cassie Hartfinh is actually a character who comes in later in that story. It’s a whole trilogy actually, but so far only the first book’s been published.

    • Well, now you know you can, cuz I’m only 18!! Anytime you’re ready, I can maybe answer a few questions. By then hopefully I’ll have published my other finished novels, and I’ll be a pro enough to help you.

      • That’s so cool! I’m 16 and am working on a novel right now. I’ve never actually finished one before but I’m doing the OYAN curriculum with this one so I really am hoping to!!
        Oh awesome! Thanks so much!
