If you are reading this then you must be quite bored. ;) I suggest you stop reading this and read something anything by EmberSnowCat, Twilightspire, or Dean Kuch. Or maybe peek in my portfolio. *Wink* If it's mind bending, delicious poetry you crave, head on over to Christopher Sheldon or Despiser. :)

If you wish to read my stuff, I will attempt to describe my work. (Hey, you can't rate my info paragraph so I can write whatever the heck I want! And if I miss a comma...or five...there's not a dang thing you can do!)

My poetry = Dark lines, often seeped in emotion and southern ramblings, with metaphors as thick as my accent. (Ha ha. I want to LOL here.)

My "Realm" = A labor of love. Ok, Rya and gang wouldn't appreciate that synopsis. Redo. Realm is the story of one badass chick with issues and some pretty awesome friends from another dimension. Did I mention the magic, King, monsters, hot guys, and mayhem?

One last thing. (Guess I should include something about me here.) People have told me several times in my life, "You're not like I thought you were going to be." I always wonder what this means. Now I think I'm starting to figure it out. They say this when I've allowed them to see the real me. The me who is woven into my rhymes and stories. So when you read my stuff, you are actually meeting me. (But you aren't subjected to seeing me in my faded Darth shirt with my cray-cray hair and smeared eye liner.)
You are not broken, Rya Deckland. And I will run my sword through any bastard that says differently. - Des - REALM book 2

cephira: Anyone have suggestions for self-publishing children's books?

    Cumbrianlass: You can do it yourself through Amazon's Createspace.

    cephira: Thanks. A friend asked me and I have no clue about reputable self publishers for a children's picture book.

cephira: I've been a member for about 6 years and have never had an issue with "standard members" reviewing my work...until now. I think that a few trolls make it their mission to destroy it for other standard members. This person joined this month, has nothing but blank space in their portfolio, and apparently, nothing to say other than basically, "I hate all dark writing, so your writing sucks." I don't give a pachyderm's patootie about their comments, but I do wonder if the 1 star rating will deter others from reading my new work? I'm also wondering if I should block standard members' reviews. Any thoughts, FS friends?

    mrsmajor: For the reasons you have mentioned...I do block these is clear to me that some are here simply to be unpleasant, never really intending to give a real and thoughtful review...I agree while the words, are not worthy of concern...I don't know how the stars might effect I just block them...

    nor84: A one-star rating that has no merit can be removed by the site administrator. Find 'contact us' in one of the pulldowns at the top of your screen and send a message to Tom.

    When you have a few reviews on a piece, the lowest, the first one-star and first six-star are dropped off. I never pay attention to the reviews someone else has given a work, and I think that's the way most members work. If someone read the comments in that review, they wouldn't hold it against you.

    But I suggest contacting Tom AND blocking standard members.

    michaelcahill: I'm usually madder than the author. Hahaha. Nor84 has it on the money.

    Emily George: What are standard members I thought you just joined wrote and reviewed. I realize we are all at different skill levels but I hope that's all
    June 15, 2015 at 11:16PM
    cephira: Thanks everyone for your advice. And, Emily George, "standard" members are people who have not paid to join the site. They have limited access to certain features and can't enter contests. They can read and review.
