@Prstncharlie, I found this list of questions relating to finishing someone’s novel, and I was wondering if you’d answer it for me?
You don’t have to, but if you do, here are the questions:
1. At what point did you feel like “Ah, now the story has really begun!”
2. What were the points where you found yourself skimming?
3. Which setting in the…[Read more]
@Darkfire2010, I forgot to do this, but can you answer these questions about my book for me? No pressure if you don’t want to. I get it, interviews are daunting.
(I’m working on incorporating your feedback into my book, by the way).
These are the questions if you want to answer them. Thanks! 😊

That’s no problem, but it’s a little late where I am so I’ll have to come back to this post
Okay I’m back
1) I think it was when Lilith was going to have her heart torn out and she sent out the letters, I really thought I was getting to the crux of things
2) I don’t remember doing a lot of slimming, but it’s say probably a little after the middle, which isn’t very specific but I can’t really remember
3) Definitely the cabin in the…[Read more]
@Darkfire2010, sorry, I have more follow up questions.
1) Ah… Interesting. So do you think there’s too much exposition?
2) Okay… That means I need to work on the bonding between Lilith and Iohann to make it more engaging.
3) That’s the exact effect I was going for!
4) Lilith had the desired effect then. That’s good to know.
5) Yes, that’s wh…[Read more]

Lillith, I’m so grateful for your writing. The Purest Heart has always been shaping up to be a wonderful book, and I can’t wait until it hits shelves! I’ll be the first one to snag a copy 😉 Your journey has been so amazing to watch, I should be the one thanking you! Thank you, and good luck with everything.
~Cove <3 <3 <3
@Thecoven4ever, your words mean so much, and my journey would’ve been nothing without you to guide me and offer support. Thank you, and I can’t wait to see what you think of my book when it enters the world for real. 😊
Wow! This is so exciting! Congratulations!!
I’ll be on the look out for the book when it’s published! 🤗
Thank you dearly for the mention. It genuinely makes me feel appreciated.
I am always happy to support anyone who is a talented writer such as yourself!
Best wishes on your journey! 🎉😀
Of course I included you @Thesgeturtle, you were one of my first regular readers! You’re so nice, and I hope you like how my book turned out. Thank you, and I hope to see you again soon. 😊
Lillith!!! Your story is amazing and I’m so happy for you!!!!!
Ah! I am so happy for you! This is great! Congratulations!
Just tell me when, and once it comes out I will storm the shelves. Seriously, it such a wonderful story, I will shamelessly buy them all. Lol
But in all seriousness, we are all so proud of you. You have done such a magnificent job, I don’t think anyone could have done any better. ❤️
Thank you so much, @Stargalaxy9000! I couldn’t be happier knowing you know how much I appreciate you. You’ve always given me undying support and I cannot wait until you read my book when it’s published. Thank you so much! ❤️
<3 So excited for the Purest heart to be published I will be buying it and trying to convince everyone I know to buy it too!! 🙂 You're such talented writer but what I most admire is your dedication, it takes a lot of determination to continuously write and rewrite and take criticism and never give up on it. I think that's really amazing and…[Read more]
Thank you so much, @Darkfire2010. I’m so flattered you think I’m dedicated and inspirational, (😂), and I can’t wait until you get to read the polished version!
OH MY GOSH YOUR WRITING’S GONNA BE PUBLISHED THAT IS AMAZINGBALLZTASTICAL AAAAAAHHHH
*Berry slides over next to me, arms up and singing* “CEEEL-E-BRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!” *by this point she’s started happy-dancing*
*i toss confetti upon you* WOOOO!
Well, I’m trying, @Boomboompancakes, nothing is guaranteed, but I’m glad I have your support, as always. So thank you, and I hope you like it when it’s finished. 😂
Wow Lilith. Your words mean a lot right now. I hope that when the time is right, and you feel that spark of inspirational hope, you will send that pile of more than just paper to a publisher. You inspired me to write a story. It is only about 50 pages right now, and not very good, but it is mine. Your story will become the next thing to brighten…[Read more]
Thank you so much, @Why-wont-you-work-for-me. Your words mean more than you could ever know. I have a feeling this draft will be the last, so hopefully I’ll be sending my book out to a publisher as soon as they reopen submissions. ❤
You’re so kind to say my book holds enough potential to brighten up the world. It’s all I could’ve ever hoped,…[Read more]
Yay awesome! Unforutantely I don’t have tik tok though :(( But that’s still great!
@Thecoven4ever, I was wondering how far you’d gotten through my book? There aren’t any problems if you haven’t started, I just wanted to check in. 😊
I’m about a quarter of the way through, and loving it so far! You’ve really nailed Lilith, she’s a great character.
Thanks @Thecoven4ever, that’s really encouraging. I’ve been a bit low lately after being told Lilith and Iohann aren’t likeable by two of the friends I thought I could trust to not give me advice and then not tell me how they needed to be fixed. Anyway, I’m glad you’re enjoying it! ❤️
Dear Soman, as you have written several books yourself, I wanted to ask for your guidance. I’m on my tenth rewrite of my novel, because it’s just not been good enough in the past, (so many mistakes!), and as I’m rewriting I’m finding it quite tiresome to get through. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just boring. It’s completely necessary to my…[Read more]
Sure. If it’s boring, I cut it. I only keep stuff I find compelling.
Sorry I took so long to get to this
I’m on Iohann’s chapter Suspicions
😂 If only that were true. I’m the least patient person I know. It’s fine that you’re not very far in, take all the time you need. The ‘honeymoon’ period is officially over and I’m hating myself for beginning this crazy journey I’m worried I’ll never make it to the end of. 🤪
What do you think of it?
As a writer myself, I would like to ask, have you ever had to force yourself to go on a break? I finished my ninth draft today and have told myself I’ll go on a break until the end of March, but I’m still itching to write, despite the immense emotional exhaustion. Thanks! 😊
I have not reread it yet, I’m sorry! I’ve just been pretty busy lately. I’ll definitely get to it soon though!
Yes! And thank you so much h for letting me read it
I can’t tell how far I am in, but I don’t think I’m far because I’m reading it in spare time
Really enjoying it! 🙂
This isn’t a suggestion, as he is too old, but Joshua Bassett reminds me so much of Tedros. ❤️
Joshua Basset’s only 19, which is cutting it close, but still under the age limit Soman would tolerate.
Thanks for the reply @Bookworm003, but I wasn’t saying it as a suggestion, I was just saying he reminded me of Tedros. ❤️
