Siouxsun Lakeland | 8 comments I am a writer I have not published yet. I am wondering if there are any others here trying their hand at this?

Jessica | 1 comments I have written most of a novel and have to heavily edit it. I've really been procrastinating over it even though I just had the files from a dead thumb drive recovered.

Siouxsun Lakeland | 8 comments Jessica I have a place you can go to have it edited and it might cost you about 10.oo and you will get lots of feed back if you are interested. I use it myself its great!

Jenn (kenderhearted) I am also in the process of "editing" (more like procrastinating). Self-publishing seems to be the way to go these days. It costs a lot less and takes less time, but you have to put in a lot of effort to do everything yourself. Yay for ebooks.

Is this an adult ed class or a writer's group? I couldn't find any information on the library page or the Adult ed page.

Tommy Carbone | 1 comments Hi All,
The Lobster Lake Bandits is a book set in Maine (and yes, Bangor is mentioned) - with a little of New York City. The story will transport you to our north woods for a historical fiction mystery. I wrote this book to spotlight the wonderful wilderness of Maine. If you like travel adventure, check it out.

Brian SMART | 2 comments Hello all. New here and glad to see a community near me of like minded people. I'm a retired chief now looking to show my creative side in other ways by working on my first novel. This I'm hoping to be the first story of a trilogy of trilogies. I would love to be able to bounce ideas off of other people and perhaps find mutual beta reading exchange. If anyone is interested please send me a message. I would love to hear for anyone.

S.A. Larsen (salarsen) | 1 comments Hi Brian, I'm newer to this group too. What genre and age group are you thinking about writing in? I'm a children's author with two books out through traditional publishers. I write middle grade and young adult literature.

Thank you for the greeting. The first set of book are classic fantasy along the lines of R A Salvatore with bread crumbs of Sci-Tech which will lead to the second set of books. I'm tailoring it to be enjoyed to both young and odd alike. I have the first 24 chapters written at around 59k word and at about 1/3 of the way through the first tale.

In the end it will be Trilogy of trilogies, three genres, three periods of time, two distinct worlds and one connected story line. It's something I've been toying with since the 80"s but because of my currant circumstance I finally have decided to actively turn it into reality. I would love to find someone to give it a critical look and be able to bounce ideas around to help me better craft the final narrative. I welcome any advice.


Brian
