    2 years later, my second novel is finished

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Flying Geese, Mar 15, 2016.

    I've grown so much as a writer here. It took me a long time to really understand my strengths and weaknesses as a writer. My first book taught me the basics of writing and constructing a coherent and consistent storyline. This book is where I let my imagination run free, and to be honest, there were lots of times I thought I wouldn't ever finish it because of its complexity. But it's finally done. I consider it a love letter to the fantasy genre.

    I wanted to thank a few people in particular for the advice, critiques and beta-reads they've given me along the way:

    @KaTrian @JayG (who has apparently been banned) @jannert @Nicoel

    Thank you!

    If you want to check it out, you can search for "The Valiant of Wind" and probably find it on Amazon or Google

    Congratulations. I don't know you and I wasn't around 2 years ago but always happy to hear someone finish a project.
    I wish you all the best on getting it out there and read.

    This is great news! Congratulations. :) You're further than T and I. We should really get past the editing stage and already send it out to the world. :p

    ETA: If you want it to appear in our Bookstore, PM Wreybies. ;)

    Congratulations, Michael.

    Loved your comment about thinking the first novel would never be done. That's where I'm at. (sigh) :)

    Thanks everyone for the support! I haven't written at all since I released it, but I really can't wait to get back to writing! Hopefully, I'll have some awesome things to showcase in the workshop before the end of 2016!
