IF YOU HAVE ENTERED THE YOUNG WRITERS PRIZE, I AM MORE THAN HAPPY TO DO A READ FOR READ! :D

Hey, people! Kirky here. I’m an editor, university student and former Inkie. RIP, Inkpop. So long and thanks for all the fish, HC. We all love red herrings.

Pretty dormant when at uni. More active when home and I do come on about once a day to reply to messages and read comments (and stalk my favourite books) wherever I am, so do message me!

I read a fair amount on here, but something has to seriously impress me for me to vote for it. As in, something I’d pay for because I think it’s publishable (even if it’s one chapter out of hundreds). But I’m also a stickler for grammar, so unless a chapter blows me away, I’m unlikely to vote unless the grammar is practically flawless.

If I really enjoy a book, I’ll put it on a reading list. If it’s in the one entitled “I recommend reading these because they’re awesome”, it’s worth checking out.

I don’t do read for reads, and I don’t read on request either. This is because I don’t have time to. Also, I’m a critic monster and a grammar Nazi. I suspect a lot of you wouldn’t like me critiquing your work as, when I critique, I analyse pretty much every word you use. Unless you can take it and are prepared to do the same in return, it’s probably not worth asking me for a read for read. Besides, if I want to read something, I’ll go find it on my own. I have my own tastes in books, and reading is my downtime.

I also don’t appreciate people asking me to update, so here are the ETAs for updates so you don’t have to nag:

Wow... I just stayed up all night reading your book, Plan B. (y) It was FANTASTIC! And different! Really unique! I hope that you're able to get it published one day! <3 You are so talented!
Kirkinator commented on Plan B - Chapter Thirty-two


The last few days of the half term dissolved into complete chaos.  Brookie’s fans were all over the place, and Fran found herself beset by her own group of fans, a larger group of anti-fans, and a...

It wasn't relevant to the story to include it, so I didn't.
Kirkinator commented on Plan B - Epilogue


Mathilda grumbled to herself, clearly annoyed that the other two weren’t taking her side.  She displayed a vehement dislike towards dresses that nearly rivalled her dislike for some of Brookie’s...

It would have been unbelievably cliched, overshadowed all the important things in the story, and also wouldn't really have been the best thing psychologically for either of them.  (Which is all explained in the appendices.)  There wasn't anything in the way of romance between them -- that was all read in.

Would you believe my mom listens to lee min Ho, the other boys over flowers cast, and random songs from her k-dramas like the soundtrack from faith aka the great doctor.

She has a fascination for Lee min Ho.  Loves all his shows.
