A big thanks to everyone for taking the time to read my Breedline adventures. I've enjoyed sharing my series with you. I've had wonderful and helpful feedback. FanStory has been, and continues to be, an amazing learning tool for me. I continue to grow as a writer with each book.
All four series of the Novels of the Breedline are available on my website at, Amazon, Barns and Noble, or wherever books are sold online.
I hope you enjoy my story as much as I do creating them.

Big hugs,
Shana :)

scongrove: If you are not a fan of dark fantasy, paranormal romance, supernatural with some horror... my stories may not be for you. I love advice and I can take criticism, but please be positive and kind with your words. If you flat out don't like the story, please move on. Most readers here are very kind and positive. Some have really helped my writing skills, and I thank you for that.

    nor84: No one is supposed to review with a comment or argument that says "I didn't like it." If you are being given a low rating without explanation, I would suggest reporting the incident to site administration. Reviews are supposed to be based on errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, i.e., errors in the presentation, not just because someone doesn't like the type of story, or has a different opinion about the topic and rates low because of it. We are supposed to be helping others find their mistakes to improve their craft, not attacking them.

scongrove: I would like to take the time to thank everyone that has supported me here on FanStory. Your dedication, helpful advice, and kindness always makes the difference. YOU give me the confidence and motivation to keep on writing my story. I will always be grateful for all of you. I started here on this website with a story stuck in my head. I didn't know the first thing about writing when I began sharing my story here in 2014. I've definitely never took writing classes, and still do not. I learn from YOU. My background is in art. Although I have to admit, I lost my drive to create artwork on paper a long time ago, but I find that this is just another form. My reward is to entertain readers with my adventures of the Breedline. Thanks so much for your time and friendship.

Big hugs to all!
Shana :)

scongrove: A special thank you to everyone that is giving me wonderful feedback for my fifth series of the Novel of the Breedline. It's still a working progress, but every bit of your advice makes the difference. Bless you all!

scongrove: Hello everyone on FanStory! I have a question to anyone who reads this. I would love your response. I notice not many seem to enjoy reading Fantasy or Supernatural. My books have that and so much more. Drama, mystery, adventure, thriller, romance, and a little horror. I see that some take a look, even though it's not their usual genre, and they find they enjoy the chapter. Do you think I would get more readers if my genre was romance or thriller instead of fantasy or supernatural? Just a thought.
Thanks for reading!

    nor84: It's not usually easy to be good in all genres. I write about WWII, but there's action and romance. I've had people say they don't like war stories who became fans.

    I am basically a thriller writer, or that's what an editor suggested I write. I don't think I could write an entire 'sweet' romance or a great horror novel, although I have written short pieces of both.

    nor84: My suggestion is write what you like. Write to please yourself, not for reviews. They mean nothing outside Fanstory. If you want more reviews, you can promote your material, although some of the reviews may not be particularly useful.

    scongrove: Thank you, nor84! I appreciate your response and I will definitely take your advice. I love to learn from others here on this site. This is how I can improve my writing. Knowledge is power.

    rwilliam: I switch it up. Sometimes it's fantasy, fiction, etc. People who already follow you will still get your chapters but you might pick up more readers if you change it up now and then. You could do romance, drama, horror, etc.

    Randa Dayle: I like to read good writing, and yours is. I think you have your heart and passion in your stories and I would hate to see you give that up.

    fm wright: Like it just the way it is. Don't change a thing.

scongrove: I am very grateful for everyone who has given me advice on FanStory. I have definitely appreciated all the help and hope to keep improving my writing skills. Thank you for your patience and kind words. Positive feedback does make a difference and builds confidence. Although unnecessary negativity can tear a person down. Please remember we are all human and make mistakes. Some of catch on quick while others need more time. We are all unique in our own way. :)

    If you can do those things, you will find success...or success just might find you.
