I'm an aspiring author who has wanted to write a novel and get it published for some time. I had no idea this site existed until I read an article on The Guardian online (a British newspaper). About a young English woman who used it to submit a few chapters for her novel, The Dark Heroine ( a book which has gotten published and given the author a six figure sum). Not that I'm hoping that would happen because believe me, NOTHING like that would ever happen to me. Really, I must have bad luck. 

I'm a fan of espionage movies and tv series (like Lara Croft, Salt, Bond, Hanna, Gone, Spooks, and Strike Back). Vampires aren't really my thing ( I faint at the sight of lots of blood), however, after doing some research I learned they can be symbols of something. LIke feeling like an outsider or being unconventional in society's ways. I'm also an advocate of women's rights, so I like having strong female characters. Infact, my novel on here, Fangs and Bullets, has an anti-Bella Swann protagonist: Ivy C. Hammond. The C stands for Constance, a middle name I think suits the character. I chose the name Ivy after researching that the flower symbolizes "protection"- a concept which is present throughout the novel. As both a vampire and an operative of MI6, she must save the world from mortal threats ( ie. terrorism) and immortal threats ( rogue vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, etc). Paradoxically, both "fangs" and "bullets" are equated with "death". 

I'm also a fan of exercise, nutrition, dark chocolate, the celebrity Orlando Bloom, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings franchise, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, horses, cats, dogs, art, music,photography, fashion, and travel.

I'm Ivy Hammond. You might not have heard of me yet.. It's because I'm two secret things. If you want to know what they are, do one thing: read the following pages.

Clever title. I like it. I've read the first few pages, and it's very humourous. Good job at writing something so original!

This is interesting. Glad I came on here, had a look, and found this one. I'm a Brit fanatic and history lover, so this book has those two things...
