Taking the saccharine out of sweet and the empty moralizing out of fairy tales since 2016
I specialize in what I call Post Genre work, weird and intimate, emotionally intelligent and humanistic.
We update twice a week at the moment, Wednesday and Friday. I dare you to find another writer on this platform who has kept this steady an update of at least twice a week updates of 2,000 words + chapters since I began uploading. You can't.
Magical realism, fantasy, science fiction, drama, the macabre, the weird, romance, eroticism, the deepest roots of storytelling tropes & mechanisms - these are my focus.
Do not bug me with your work. There's no nicer way to put this than to be blunt and up front, and if you ignore this message, I will just send you something patronizingly nice or just "no".
Here are some sounds to put in your ear holes while reading either version of my novel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSenUDlXqtik16cNZnWSbPgWYsPq6FS6Z

Kait Nolan is stuck in an office all day, sometimes juggling all three of her jobs at once with the skill of a trained bear—sometimes with a similar temperament. After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. This Mississippi native has something for everyone, from short and sweet to Southern contemporary romance to action-packed paranormal—all featuring heroes you’d want to sweep you off your feet and rescue you from work-day drudgery. When not working or writing, Kait’s hanging out in her kitchen cooking and wishing life were a Broadway musical.
Her books are available on:
A passionate believer in helping others, she has founded a writing challenge designed for people who have a life (aka we NaNoWriMo rejects who can’t give everything up for the month of November). Please check out A Round of Words in 80 Days. http://aroundofwordsin80days.wordpress.com

Greetings. I am Marianne G. Petrino. I have self-published Thundercats fan fiction for many years. My web page had all of my work to date. Sadly, in recent years, I have neglected it while I attempted to carve out a place for myself with more formal self-publishing, which began with the National Novel Writing Month of 2010. So on August 19, 2015, I took the web page down. Maybe I will put it all up here or on the archive for the Organization for Transformative Works. Still pondering my next move with the Thundercats fan fiction.
Before my "career" as an "author" came to a whimpering end, I had self-published two urban metaphysical, chick lit novels with an Italian twist, one travel memoir, and a young adult equine science fantasy. This last book only had a short sale run. I am putting it up here on Wattpad, so that more people can enjoy it, because I think it is my best book, and it might also do some good. ) If you enjoy my story, Silver Hooves in the Darkness, please consider making a donation to combat Fragile X, an inherited disease. You can check out the National Fragile X Foundation ( http://www.fragilex.org/ ) and Fraxa ( http://www.fraxa.org/ ). Thank you in advance for your consideration and kindness.
I continue to be involved with the SF Microstory contest on LinkedIn. That group has published an anthology of flash fiction called The Future Is Short: Science Fiction in a Flash. Volume 2 has just come out. Both are available at the usual online sources. You might be inspired to join the fun. I intend to post some of my entries that are not in the anthology.
My writing style tends to be formal and in third person, not a popular combination these days. However, I like to think that I tell a good tale. So I hope you will consider taking a journey in reading with me.

I'm a 30-something lover of all things paranormal, urban fantasy and sci-fi. When I'm not busy writing or crafting something in my workshop, I can be found reading, playing video games or binge watching tv shows with the hubby.

I have a B.A. in Linguistics. No this doesn't mean I'm a polyglot but I do have some knowledge of language and languages and how they work. This also doesn't mean I'm a prescriptivist grammar nazi. Feel free to ask me something if you want to take this in university.
I've taught English in Russia for a short time. Mind you that teaching English as a foreign language is different than English taught in high school/secondary education (bit more focus on the skills than analyzing literature). Don't be surprised if I question the use of something if I read your story.
I don't do exchanges (read for reads, edits for edits) or requests. If you're interested in what I've put out that's awesome. If I like what you do I'll take a peek. I may break away from this when I have the time but I don't have any at the moment.
