Hello everyone! I noticed that postings here are slim. The book that I just wrote and am desperately trying to get an agent for (I don't even have the energy or strength to talk about the next step of publishing) is a YA paranormal fantasy book. It has elements of horror, elements of history (Ghosts from the prohibition era) and a tiny bit of teenaged romance between two gifted individuals. I would like to get our genre some more representation here on this site!! Let's Talk! Anyone have a paranormal story that you want a few chapters reviewed? I'm your girl!

I think a lot of people see supernatural and paranormal as being passé in the era of everyone wanting billionaires with riding crops they don't know how to use right.  Supernatural is still my favorite genre, and I'm still writing it.  I've got chapters of a new book that need to be reviewed, but they won't make sense without reading the first few books.  If you're willing, we can exchange some stuff. :)

I LOVE your 50 shades reference! I would love to review your work. Maybe you can just give my the cliff notes versions of the previous books so that it'll make sense?


Thanks!

Your book concept sounds great. And I agree, this forum is quiet. I'm currently on submission with an urban fantasy manuscript and am working on a YA ghost story manuscript. I'm a fan of paranormal. :)

Yeah, this group was started a while ago and the person who moderated it kinda evaporated into the ether. I don't even remember who it was. But there's no reason dedicated readers and writers of it can't resurrect this forum. Feel free to ask questions, start threads, and boost activity in the forum overall.

I'd love to have this forum going strong! The current book I am querying is paranormal/urban fantasy and I love the genre!

My current novel I'm querying is an epistolary mashup of horror, gothic romance, paranormal/supernatural/mystical (dark?) fantasy.

Agreed, by the way; this genre has huge potential to tap into.

I'm surprised this forum isn't more popular! I wonder why?

 

I'm working on an urban fantasy/supernatural, mythic fiction sort of story, with Gods and ghosts and psychopomps and more. I'm pretty sure that'd fall under this category, right?
