Hey, everyone. I am a little late to the party, been on Inkshares almost four months now, crowdfunding my gritty epic fantasy (seems more appropriate to call it that rather than "dark" or "grimdark" fantasy), Bane of All Things. Not setting any records for speed of pre-sales, but BoAT has kept chugging along to be current leader for pre-sales and second in Trending after that whirlwind Ricky Ruszin below. 

Kindly check BoAT out and give a follow or a review, if not a pre-order, if you like what you read. It’s also a fundraiser for a cause close to my heart up here in snowy Canada, Autism Ontario.

Hi everyone!

I’m new (well, two weeks "new"), but haven’t really introduced myself in the forums. My name’s Ricky from Maryland (hey, fellow Marylander, A.C. Schulties!) and I write novels in the mystery/suspense/thriller genre.

My novel, "Showtime," is currently funding on Inkshares, and we’re up to 100+ in two weeks, so I’m happy with that so far! It’s been tough (a lot, a lot of hustling), but I think/hope it’s going to work out.

"Showtime" is about a college-age student named Jordan who is unhappy with his life (no job, doesn’t know what he wants to do when he graduates) and, on top of everything, his last remaining grandparent dies. It’s only in clearing out her house that he discovers her TV allows him to travel to the past, which he attempts to use to reverse the televised talent show tragedy that ended her life.

If it sounds like something you might be interested in, I’d love any feedback on the opening chapters (and, of course, pre-orders)!

Nice to meet you all!

Hi, everybody! I’m Alex, I live in Maryland, and I’m new on Inkshares. I’ve started uploading my first SciFi novel, KZAR I: Jupiters. 

Jupiters is about a genetically engineered super soldier who battles enemies in reality and in nightmarish dream sequences as he struggles to find his place in the world. Check it out here: https://www.inkshares.com/books/kzar-i-jupiters 

I’d greatly appreciate any feedback, especially constructive criticism. And I’d love to hear about similar projects and any way new members can help each other grow. Thanks!

Hello, everyone! Just popping in to introduce myself. I am a Pacific Northwest girl who also happens to be a voracious reader (mostly of speculative fiction) and a longtime writer.

I have half a degree in Creative Writing, a love of long-distance running, cats and dogs, and a travel bug that won’t quit. I live in Vancouver, British Columbia with my husband. My current novella, "Brimstone," is being serialized on Inkshares mostly for fun and feedback.

Feel free to come chat with me! I love meeting other readers and writers. I am also on Instagram under the username "blackwaterpress." Warning: it’s a mess of travel photos, books I’m reading, and writer’s tears.

Hi Everyone! Keylin here, I’m a first time Inksharer and my debut novel, Highwings (YA fantasy), is up for pre-orders now.

A little bit about me, I eat my pizza backwards because the crust is by far the worst and you just need to get that over with first. I can’t pick a favourite colour because it would hurt all the other colours feelings. And I love writing (as we probably all do here).

Would love to know more about you all, and your books, so drop me a DM sometime :)

Hello Community Members,

Please, show some love and enthusiasm to my first ever book, "In Warm Blood!" If you’re into mystery/thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and consists of characters that make you question whether demons are soulless monsters or in fact innocent souls that have been tarnished by society, then this novel is the right choice for you! If you think cold blooded murders are the worst, then where would a murder committed in pure emotions fall on the spectrum?

Pre order now and share with your family and friends. I have till Dec. 14th to pre sell at least a minimum of 250 copies! All the help I get is much needed and appreciated.

Thank you, Fiza H.

Hello, everybody! I’m KC, Pacific Northwest-based, first time Inksharer, and excited to be here! This looks like a really cool, supportive community. I’ve been doing the screenwriting thing for a -long- time and have only recently pivoted to novels. Full Cold Moon is my first -- check it out if you like mystery, magic, and not being able to sleep at night ;-)

    Hi, so I’ve decided to publish a book I wrote, but it’s been hard because I need to pre sell 750 copies before 90 days are over. So, I was wondering if you’d be interested in a mystery/thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you question whether demons truly hide behind angelic faces? This is the link to my book. Pre order now and share with family and friends. I’d appreciate all the help I can get!

Thank you,

Fiza H.

Hi, new myself but seems like a great place to find like minds and support.  From experience the best advice I can give is to keep putting words down. No matter how bad you think it is, it can be edited, re drafted, polished. Some of my best ideas rose out of stinkers. Have fun!

Hello everyone! I’m a complete newbie, to Inkshares and to writing. It’s always been my dream and I figured I’d finally give it a go.  I’m starting with a mystery titled "Retirement Kills," hopefully it doesn’t turn out too awful. If any of you vets have any tips or suggestions you’d like to make, I’m always eager for help!
Hope you’re all doing well!

Hi everyone! I found Inkshares through a book jacket at my local library. I’ve envisioned my writing on bookstore shelves since I was in early elementary school and am excited to finally start out on that journey. I’m definitely interested in hearing feedback to strengthen and hone my skills. I also enjoy reading as much as I can and having access to the great pieces here has already been quite fun. I look forward to new friends and advice!

Hello!  I found Inkshares through an online review of A God in the Shed while searching for new author resources online.  What an amazing idea!  My only writing so far has been academic, but like art and photography, I enjoy writing fiction whenever I can find time.  

This summer, I find myself with a couple of months off between jobs, and I’m taking the opportunity to finally finish the first draft of a hard sci-fi novel I’ve been poking at for a few years.  I’m very close to starting a draft here on Inkshares, but I have a few questions about building a readership on other sites simultaneously.  Would it be advisable to also post my work on sites like Medium, Goodreads, and other indie publishing sites?  Or, is that considered bad form if I’m attempting to get published on Inkshares?  I’m new at this, so I want to start out on the right foot.

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have!

Hi all I’m Daniel and I’m new on inkshares. I’ve been writing  for a little bit but I still class myself as a newbie, I heard about the site from a friend on twitter and I thought I’d give it a shot. I currently have two chapters up for my book the beginning and I’m currently writing my third, I also have chapter four done and waiting to go up.

I would love to get this book published and some pointers on how it could be better or how my writing could be improved. I write fiction with a little bit of realism mixed in and I think it works well. I can’t wait to hear from all of you

I’m Andrew and am completely new to inkshares. The way that I discovered the site is actually because a teacher of mine used it to get his book published. 
I’ve personally never written more than a short story before but this is my first attempt at a full-fledged novel. 

The fiction novel I’m writing is called Rejects and it follows the life of a young girl in a dystopian country known as Dravia. I’ve written well over 8 chapters for it by now (two have been posted on inkshares as of writing this) and am planning to hopefully be done with the whole writing process by September of 2018.

I’d be eternally grateful for any questions, comments and concerns left on my story and I’ll definitely be giving the books by other authors in this thread a read in the meantime!

Many thanks,
Andrew Hennis

Hello to all!

I just joined InkShares and am very interested to see how it works.

I’ve done a lot of technical writing but this is my first attempt at fiction. Any comments on the work in progress would be greatly appreciated!

My novel, RESET, is a hard science fiction story set in multiple time periods ranging from the late 1980’s to c.a. 2050. I’ve put a number of draft chapters out on the story page.

Looking forward to learning from you! Thanks for the warm welcome.

Hello I’m Devin, I like writing horror and just recently heard of Inkshares and thought I would give it a try, I like the idea of being apart of a supporting group for writers and thank you.

Greetings! I was recently told about InkShares by an Indie author so I thought I would explore it. I am working on a series called Upon Stilted Cities (samples on my page) as well as several shorter novels. Currently, I only have one piece of fiction published in a literary magazine that is due out end of this month. The short-story is science fiction and is called ’On Arrival". I also write horror, occasionally fantasy and poetry. 

I am an anthropologist by education and training and I love exploring questions about the nature of humanity and different ways of knowing. Nice to meet you all!

Hey, how did I miss this thread until now? Okay, so hello, everybody, I’m also brand new (kinda) to the site and I think this whole thing is a great idea. I am wanting to get in on this slack page, but I don’t see a way to DM most if not all of those I’m supposed to DM to get it. Could I get some help on that front?

Hello everyone! Brand new to the site and looking to make some great connections and get my second novel in my Ministry of the Wraith series off the ground. The book is called The Last Reaper. So if you dig horror thrillers with tons of action slide on down to my page and check it out. Other than that, I’m super excited to be here and looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi everyone. Just discovered Inkshares via a blog post written by one of the guys who work here. I decided I’d get my children’s book on here and share it with all my contacts to see how things go. Any advice on pushing up pre-order interest is more than welcome.

Hi! I discovered this a few months ago when my friend RH Webster’s book, Lucky, blew up during a science fiction contest. I entered the horror contest about a week ago with my book, The Wolf in the Woods. It’s a collection of 13 supernatural, surreal stories.

I also write the webcomic Dan the Snowman (danthesnowman.com), a comedy action adventure. My brother is the illustrator and also designed the cover for The Wolf in the Woods. I know it probably seems strange for a comedy writer to also write horror, but it’s all just subverted expectations, right?

Hey all, I found this place through the Writers and Artists yearbook and I’m still a little curious as to how this all works. I just uploaded a few chapters for my book Assholes Unanimous, so if you guys could give me feedback and an explanation on how preorders work that would be awesome! I can also give feedback on your work  as well.

Hello, I just discovered this site thanks to the Horror contest, and am loving what I’ve seen so far, how the site works, and the community. I submitted the first 20,000 words (roughly a third) of my novel, Fell, in the contest and would love to get some feedback and followers, and of course pre-orders if you’re so inclined. I’d gladly welcome any tips from the community in general as well, and look forward to discovering and supporting new talent here.

I envision Fell as the first book in a series, so there’s a lot of setup in the sample I put up; from there the action really begins. But it should still be enough to let a reader know if it’s the kind of book they would enjoy and want to see more.

I also have a daily webcomic that I recently started back up after a hiatus of a few months, called Skull. It’s a humor strip but tells a story. Current strips are on my Twitter, and past strips are archived on EricMee.com. I’d love to hear any feedback on that too.

Is there any way to resend it or troubleshoot the problem?

You need to share the link with people, or post a thread asking for feedback (if you want any) - generally there is a large Writer community here, not Readers. If you want Readers you have to go get them, and the Writers aren’t usually browsing for new projects. :)

Just a quick note to the entire Inkshares family. I’ve only been up-and-running for a few weeks now, but I’m already struck by the energy I’m steadily drawing off of this place. I should have known that surrounding myself with a fraternity of writers would do exactly that, but it’s been much more than I expected. So often what we do is such a solitary endeavor, staring at the screen and that taunting cursor, that it’s easy to assume the hurdles and obstacles and celebrations that you’re experiencing aren’t being experienced by other writers here, there and everywhere. This site is a welcome reminder of all that. Thanks for the many kind welcoming words over these past couple of weeks. It’s good to be here.

Welcome to Inkshares! We have a very supportive author community here, but sometimes the forum isn’t the best way to communicate. There is a community Slack which has been set up for questions, fun, and networking - and we’d love to invite you to it!

Just DM @C. Brennecke , myself, @Michael Haase , @Alisa King  , @Evan Graham , @Craig A. Munro  or @Regina McMenomy, Ph.D. with your email and we will set you up!
