Promoting My Boys

Alright, I know some people think that as a Promising Writer I ignore what is happening else where. I don't. I love to read which is how I have ended up working with as many different writers as I do. I think if you check it out, you will find it is that way with most of the authors, Hosted, Promising, or otherwise. We enjoy writing and we enjoy reading. (I'll admit I would like to know where both Andy and Nephy find the time for all their reading and reviewing. I am way behind their curve. laugh.png )

 

Any way for anyone who takes the time to read my blog, and thank you for doing so, I'd like to suggest four authors I am presently working with. If you haven't read their stuff please take a minute and do so.

 

First up is Mark. I've been working as his beta the longest. His story is dark, bad, and bondage laden. He takes you down the dark trails of Masters and slaves. It isn't a light read but a dark look at the steamy side of an earlier English life. His story is called The Legacy. Here is the link to it.

Next up is Billy. I came to Billy's story after the story had begun. I liked what I was reading but noticed one or two things that I could do to help him. He was willing to listen to my suggestions and suddenly I had a second person to beta for. Again his work is vastly different from my own. He looks at the awkward growing up ages of his character Andy. From intolerance to religion, nothing is off topic and yet he has a gentle way of taking anyone along for ride with him. The story is still building up a good head of steam so if you get the chance read it. The link is below for that as well. Billy's story is called Trials and Tribulations.

Daniel89 I found looking for help as he advertised in the thread. Something about the honesty of his plight drew me. Daniel is not a native English speaker, English being his second language. However his story was something I hadn't read before. What he really needed was someone to tweak his work so it didn't sound stilted when going from one language into another. The poor boy got stuck with an American instead of an Englishman so have a heart if something is off. His story of two men who meet one frozen winter day shows all the heartbreak and tenderness of a new romance. His background deals with horses and that world isn't one I knew so I found the whole thing very special. Take a shot and give it read and comment. His story is entitled Where Horses Dance.

Finally there is Midnight Man. The poor guy had barely joined when I met him in chat one night. Amazing how some ribbing and kidding around will get a guy to open up. He had this story he was working on. He had the first chapter done and I asked to read it. Well he is two chapters into it now. Again his work is completely different from the rest. He deals with a special breed of people stuck in their afterlife called Harbingers. To say more would deprive you of a great read. Considering again that this is his first piece here I consider myself lucky get to help him. Give it a shot if you like something quirky and dark. Midnight Man's tale is called Harbinger.

So those are the writers I'm working with. Each and every one of them talented and original in their own way. I am grateful to have the chance to work with all of them. Now those are wildly different stories worth taking a moment to read. But, hey I'm always looking for something else worth sitting down and devouring. So if you have any suggestions feel free to leave them. In the mean time all I can say is I wanted to spotlight my boys so I am. Give them some love by reading their work, leaving a comment, and letting them know if you enjoyed their tales. I think you will.

Good suggestions on new writers,

 

Oddly enough after all the years of my writing, I have never been considered a promising writer sad.png

 

Probably its due to my hiatuses of several months, whether it's due to unemployment slump after my first batch of stories, my break ups with boyfriends, or just my own stress level at my current job.

 

I never quite developed a fan base for my writing; although some people do think it's unique and fun from time to time.

 

PS: It also doesn't help that I chew through editors every other week, not because I am unbearable but they all leave the web permananelty after I have them edit: my first editor left due to losing his apartment, my 2nd left without telling me why, and so on until Dannsar left recently.

Hi Wayne. Nice of you to recognize the new talent.

I have been reading "The Legacy" by Mark. It is a good read.

 

Mark has some poetry that I have just become aware of. I think it deserves a look ,too. Not that I'm partial to poetry or anything.

 

I will sample all your "boy's" works. Sadly, I only seem to find time for samples and no solid reading time.

 

And Kudos to you for putting in so much time and effort.

 

Thanks for all you do,

 

Joe

I wouldn't worry about editors. I use enough of them myself. The good thing is I have come across ones like Frosty and Cia who manage to make my mundane stuff look good. But when I did Accidents Happen I can't tell you what I went through. Three editors and only two actually touched it. It was rough but keep going. As for promising, well, even I am not sure how that happened.

Most of my "boys" have done various other projects as well. I just figure if I can get someone to read one thing they might just check out the rest. Besides I have enjoyed your stuff as well Joe and I've suggested other writers as well, like Percy.

I'll try my best to check them out next time I have time, but I can't promise anything. There is one poor person on this site I feel really bad about because he's waiting for comments since January, and I just can't make it. It's easy to read forums and blogs in my breaks, but with stories I like to be much more throrough, so that I can actually say something about them.
