Hello Forward Motion!

I'm completely green when it comes to forums like this and to writers workshops in general.

Like many on here my main hobby is writing. I have completed a novel (circa 100k words) and am working on my second.

The first is a SciFi/Fantasy fusion piece, attempting to be in the mould of Frank Herbert/Steven Erikson/R Scott Bakker.

It is supposed to be a fairly edgy, weighty novel that is driven by the readers emotional engagement with the two lead characters.

I am not sure how successful I've managed to be in that, but I was hoping to see what other people thought about it. I really struggle to find suitable readers where I live and my wife is suspiciously enthusiastic about it.

I am a very keen reader in the ScFi/Fantasy genres as well as in literary fiction, so am looking forward to reviewing and reading some of the work on this board.

Welcome! :)

I'm active here again after a long absence. And I'm more a novelist than a short story writer--and I, too, am in the market for 'first readers'.

But 'weighty' and 'edgy' don't neccesarily ring my chimes. However, if you're a good storyteller like Frank Herbert was, I might be swept into your world--anyway, I'll give you an honest opinion. :).

BTW, don't be suspicious of your wife's enthusiasm. Treasure it!

:)
