    1. Thank you. :) For a preview-like thing, I do character interviews which can be found in the archive.

    1. I'm not published yet, but you can read the sample chapters and character interviews. I'm working on publication. ;)

    2. Oh, soooo where are the sample chapters?

    3. On the blog. You can check in the popular posts, archive or blog search. :)

    4. Um so I looked around for sample chapters but couldn't find any? Maybe you've deleted them or something, I just thought I'd check out what you write:)

    5. Yeah I did a long time ago. XD I've changed them so much since. I have a flash fiction out in a magazine currently.

    6. Thank you! I'll have links up to buy it in the monthly summary post and I also have them up on my social media.

  4. I think you need to hire an editor. Otherwise have someone re-read your posts. So far I have been the only real critic but much of what you have written could easily be tweaked.

    For example an 'anti-religious society' would just be an atheist society, or possibly one of deism. Both of which are along the lines of anti-religion, one opposing worship in general I suppose and the other believing in a higher power but not the institutions of man.

    'Technological laboratory' or have they awoken in laboratory that's riddled with wires, monitors and buzzing sounds. So much so it could be called a metal leviathan with the brothers nestled by its beating organs.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I do have people re-read my posts usually. If you're referring to a typo or such. They happen like the couple in your last paragraph.

      That's one context on taking the phrase. I'm sorry you disapprove of my wording. This society persecutes anyone who practices religion aka anti-religious.

      I don't quite understand your last paragraph. If you're thinking I lack description in the back cover copy you must understand such things should be made short. Excess description is unnecessary.

    2. Thank you very much, "Anonymous", but I will have to kindly ask you to back off. You act like you know what you're talking about, but I seriously doubt that you do. You cower behind anonymity to make flawed points and give critique when you are not asked to. However, should you decide to lend your advice again, it would be best if you speak with civility and use proper grammar yourself -- two areas in which you are most obviously lacking.

    1. Aw thank you. ^ ^' I'll have books to beta soon and I'd love a new beta reader if you're up for that. ^ ^ You've made my day with all these comments. I do have a Goodreads account but I'm not very active. ^ ^' I'm mostly active on Facebook, Twitter and Blogger. :) Thanks again for commenting!

    2. A beta reader is someone who reads a book before it's published. :)

  6. Wow! Really looking forward to reading these!

    1. Thank you! I love winged creatures as well. ^ ^ Unfortunately that book has had to take a back seat for now since the other two are hogging attention haha, but I'm glad you like it!

    2. I agree! That one sounded the best to me.

    3. Cool! It's actually my back burner story. XD It needs so much revamping lol.

    4. I thought it sounded like it has a lot of potential.

    5. I think they do too, but they need a lot of changes first. XD

    1. Hey!

      That's weird that it's not working. You can email me at howellvictoriagrace@gmail.com

      This sounds cool. I'll take a look at it next week. I have lots of info on my books in the characters section. :)

      Thanks for the offer!

  9. Hi, Victoria! I've been reading your blog for quite awhile, but unfortunately I'm unable to comment on any of the posts :(. I just wanted to say that your books all sound INCREDIBLE, I want to read them so bad! Are you going to add Silver Hood to this page? I would love to hear more about that story as well :).

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hey! I've heard that from a couple people. I really want to see if I can get this resolved. Would you mind emailing me at howellvictoriagrace(a)gmail.com so we can troubleshoot? I have some theories. If I can solve it with you perhaps I can use it to help others. Oh thank you! That's so sweet of you. ^ ^ I may need some betas in the coming months. The only thing about Silver Hood is that just right off it has some major spoilers, but I will try to make a spoiler free synopsis lol. Thanks so much for commenting!

    1. Alrighty, I'll email you :).
      I would definitely be interested in beta reading any of your stories, they all sound really good!
      Writing a synopsis without spoilers can be awfully hard sometimes (well, actually writing a synopsis is hard by itself), huh? Especially for the second book in a series!

    2. Excellent! Thank you. I replied.

      Sweet. I'm putting out an official call in the next Monthly Summary.

      It is!
