a/n: Hi everyone! Gonna start cross-posting my original fiction to my fanfiction account, too. That way I have it in more places and it's backed up. If it gets to be too much of a bother, just let me know. Should only see three or four posts like this a month though. Thanks!

~ Synopsis ~

They say that there’s a monster in these woods; Hadrian’s heard it all his life. But it's only a myth, a warning given to children by exasperated parents. The fog-choked woods behind the village are vast and empty. There are nothing but animals beneath the trees.

Then, a villager is found dead, and life takes an unexpected turn. The woods are suddenly much more sinister. To prove himself and his courage, Hadrian must venture there alone.

Only to discover that a monster is indeed very real. And it takes a very familiar form.

~ Excerpt ~

Hadrian watched his breath puff out in front of him, a grayish mist in the biting air. The breeze flowed down from the mountains looming over his village and seemed to carry a chill year-round. It only worsened after the sun set. His thick cloak did well to combat against the cold, but his lips were freezing. As were his ears. Hadrian loosed his hair from its low ponytail and let the long strands settle over his ears. There, one problem solved.

He stomped his booted feet to warm them and his dark eyes again searched the depths of the forest. He saw nothing. The torches could only pierce so far into the moss-streaked trees, and he was loath to admit that he didn't like peering into the unknown. He held half-imaginings of things lunging at him from the black, with claws and teeth aimed for the vulnerable skin of his throat.

It was all Omi's fault. If he hadn't spent their entire childhood filling Hadrian's mind with all sorts of dark tales, Hadrian wouldn’t have such an active imagination. But here he was, pretending the darkness had eyes and the moss had limbs with which to grab him.

Hadrian shivered and his hand fell to the hilt of his sword for comfort. His mum had often accused him of having too strong an imagination. It served to worsen his fear, and now was no exception. But as his fingers traced over the symbols etched into the pommel of his sword, he felt comforted. The familial glyphs of bravery and honor were a reminder of the vows he would soon take.

He lifted his eyes to the sky and peered through skeletal branches to catch sight of the moon. It was a pale orb crawling higher in the sky, marking the continuation of another cycle. Only a couple hours left in his shift. Then, he could return home to a warm bowl of vegetable stew accompanied by thick bread, crusty around the edges. Hadrian's mouth watered at the thought. His stomach growled. His mid-shift snack seemed forever ago.

Hadrian paced to keep the blood flowing, and made certain to keep track of the low fence which surrounded his village. He kept one eye on the forest at all times. The bare, bony trunks of the trees gleamed white in the darkness, only their upper regions full of leaves thick enough to blot out all light. He imagined beady eyes glowed back at him and shivered again.

The worst of creatures in the forest were wolves and the occasional cougar. Both occasionally ventured down from the surrounding mountains, drawn by the scent of human life. Sometimes even a bear would wander out of its lengthy hibernation. Those were the existing dangers, in any case. But few spoke aloud of the mythical monster that haunted the woods: the Troblin and its terrible hunger.

The Troblin's existence had long been legend. A tale to scare children into behaving. Something to keep them from venturing into the forest on their own.

Don't be late for supper or the Troblin will get you.

Foolish youngsters are dinner for the Troblin. He'll be crunching on your bones before long!

Or, Hadrian's personal favorite, Listen to your parents, or face the wrath of the Troblin!

Hadrian didn't believe in the Troblin, but sometimes, looking into the forest as he did now, he could imagine a lumbering beast amongst the scattered trees. He could see hairy hands reaching out of the dark. He could hear the plop-plop of thick saliva dripping from pointed fangs and a slurping tongue.

Hadrian jerked his eyes away from the forest and skimmed the fence line. He was here as sentry, after all, to protect those within the village and warn them in case of attack. The nearest settlement was a week's ride away, across ever-expanding plains that were baked by an unforgiving sun. Hadrian's people didn't worry about other humans. It was the wild animals they feared.

Well, the wild animals and the mythical Troblin.

Good evening!

So I've got the mostly finalized draft of my fantasy novella Monster ready for feedback. I intend to self-publish this at some point in the next couple of months. I'm looking for someone to give it a read through and offer me some feedback on pretty much everything.

I'm not really looking for grammar call outs as I want to get the revisions done before I worry about comma placement, but I am looking for commentary on characters (how interesting they are, whether they are flat or rounded or cliche), on plot (whether it's interesting, cliche, etc), on the construction, the setting, the tone. Whether there are plot holes. Whether something needs clarification. Whether I haven't put enough description in or too much. Whether it flows, too fast or too slow. Who's your favorite character and why? what would you have liked to see more of? Is this the type of novel you could see yourself purchasing? So on and so forth.

If anyone would like to offer to take a look at this for me, that would be awesome! It's about 62 pages, 32K words. I'm looking for a turnaround time of about four weeks, though if you can get it back sooner, that would be even better.

As I said, it's a fantasy and the worst you'll see in it is some foul language and some mild violence. I think it was originally marketed as a young adult story but I think it could go either way.

I'm very willing to offer feedback for anyone else in return or to offer fic in exchange for someone willing to provide constructive feedback. Or, if you can't offer constructive feedback but would like to make yourself available as a grammar nazi when I get to that point, I would love that, too. It really helps to have a second pair of eyes on things because while I know what I wanted to accomplish, I don't know if I managed to do it or not.

You can comment here or ship me an e-mail at dracoqueen22@gmail.com or PM me or whatever makes you comfortable. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help! <3

a/n: Good morning. And yes, you read that right. One of my New Year resolutions was to bring posting my original fiction back to my main journal. Many people find it easier this way and I'm all about making things easier for my readers.

This particular update is way on down the road. And I'm in the process of fixing the masterlist so that on dreamwidth, it links to dreamwidth, and on livejournal, it links to livejournal. But for now, all of the masterlist links to dreamwidth. My apologies. It'll be fixed by February. Until then, if you prefer to read on livejournal, you can always follow the tags. They, at least, are accurate. :)

Title: Interlude
Series: War of the Animum, Fifth Story
Summary: The eye of the storm, the calm between one battle and the next. Our crew stop in Toran to rest, resupply and consider their next moves. Idle minds have nothing to do but wander and the past never stays quiet.

Great news everyone! My original fiction The Seeker is now available for purchase in both print and digital through Amazon! Excitement all around. I would be pleased as punch if anyone felt like taking a look at it or even buying a copy. I'm publishing it myself so all of the royalties come straight to me so you'd be helping out a starving artist and in the meantime, hopefully buying something you can enjoy as well.

PG-13 for fantasy-typical violence and language
Summary:


It was marked as the end of an era and the beginning of a new age. It was a sign that Normaud had advanced from its history of barbarism and deceit. The Seeker abandoned her sword and shield, ending a line that had served the monarchy for centuries.

Now, decades later, someone has taken the heirs of Normaud. Only she can find them, emerging from her self-imposed retirement to take up the blade once more.

Normaud's enemies are many, and time is against her, but the Seeker will do what she must to see the heirs restored to their rightful place, even if it means surrendering her own life.

Good morning everyone~

Just an FYI, you've got 30 days to buy The Requiem of Janus before all rights revert back to me. I'm pleased and proud of how long the first run of my first novel lasted. Almost four years! So I'm hoping when I can finally manage to get back on track, I can keep this going.

So take this opportunity to get your copy today. :)

You can buy it directly from Torquere Press or from Amazon. And if you want more information about the book, here's the link to my discussion page and it's accompanying free reads: http://n-wilkinson.dreamwidth.org/29555.html

Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years. I really appreciate it. Here's hoping the new novels will see just as much success.

 
dracoqueen22: (samcham)
Well, thanks to RL August was a bust but here's hoping September will be better. Not that I didn't have some accomplishments. I got "Wayward Sons" posted and I finished "War of the Animum: Interlude". Woot! I've mostly got my n_wilkinson livejournal/dreamwidth up and going. Just a few links to smooth out and some missing fics to upload and then it'll be good to go.

What's on tap for September? 

Plan of attack! )
