Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments Hi
Is it possible to set up a group for children's fantasy? I have two books

Noor Al-Shanti | 36 comments How long are they? A couple of us have been trying to set up groups for short fantasy and I'm thinking maybe these could fit there and we can get a group going...

Toran and the Alphabet Fairy is 65 pages (age group 4-6 years)
and Ronan's Dinosaur is about 80. That's under 10 k words (middle grade).
We could do one book each. I'd nominate the second one Ronan's Dinosaur
Yes please get others together!

Noor Al-Shanti | 36 comments Hey mods! We've got a few people with short works of fantasy looking to start a group!

There's me, Nadishka, and from my earlier thread there's also Tristen (see posts here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...


There's also Laura and Lorna from this thread here:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

That's five people already, is that enough to start a group?

Laura Koerber | 120 comments My book is not fantasy. It is realistic literary fiction. If you make the group for short story collections of any kind, I could join. ANd my book is definitely not for children. Tamira Thayne has a lot of children's books and story collections I will tell her about this thread.

Tristen Kozinski | 52 comments I have a fantasy short story, but it's not for children. Perfectly happy to join a general group though. :)

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments How long is the word count for 'short story'?

Noor Al-Shanti | 36 comments Ah, sorry guys, I got too excited when I thought we could get a group going and didn't notice some of your posts weren't fantasy related!

So how about we just make it a general short fiction round?

I'm thinking anything below 20K words, which would cover shorts and smaller novellas, but we can change that if someone wants to make it longer/more flexible.

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments There has to be something in common to make it a group. short stories sounds good.
But then there will be different genres and we may be asked to review something we don't really like


message 10: by Tamira (new)

Tamira Thayne (tamirathayne) | 24 comments I have a paranormal prequel story I'd like to join with if so. I think it's around 8,000 words.


message 11: by Nadishka (new)

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments We have five or six now. Mod can we make a group? for short stories?


message 12: by Laura (new)

Laura Koerber | 120 comments My book of short stories is about 120000 words I think it is a fast read though.


message 13: by Nadishka (new)

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments I changed the title since this is now short stories and not fantasy...
Do we have at least 6 people?


message 14: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Keene (goodreadscomchristopher_keene) | 35 comments Singular short stories? Perfect. Sign me up.


message 15: by Nadishka (new)

Nadishka Aloysius | 107 comments OKay so we have Christopher
Tamira
Noor
Laura
Tristen and Me
Isn't that enough to get this accepted? Have I left anyone out?
