Hi, basically i love to write romance fiction particularly the historical romance genre. I don’t know why that kind of stuff has always interested me but it has. I guess my writing is somewhat inspired by my favourite romantic authors like Judith Mcnaught and Jude Deveraux.
Apart from romance i also love to read horror stuff especially by Stephan King. I have read almost all of his books and loved them all. I also love to read classical literature; I have read many of Shakespeare’s plays and most of the work done by Charles Dickens, the Bronte sisters etc. Maybe that is why my writing style is a little different to most romance writers. I think I do possess a unique ability and a distinct voice. I hate tooting my own horn but I really do believe I am an above average writer.
My biggest weakness is an inability to stay interested in one story for too long although I have as of late been able to conquer that failing somewhat. I have written two other romance novels which unfortunately aren’t complete. The one I am going to post here is my third, I really don’t have a title for this one yet but it’s a romance time travel novel set in the high Middle Ages. I plan to post several chapters but that depends on the response. If hopefully ppl like it and I get enough constructive comments I will keep on posting subsequent chapters. I hope no one finds that cheeky but believe me; a lot of work goes into my writing. I have to do a lot of research to make my settings and characters believable and relevant especially since it’s a historical novel.
Lastly I would be happy to reciprocate with comments of my own for any one who reads my work. Just remember I have a critical disposition and some ppl find that a bit off putting.
P.S I am a guy living in London and I like writing Romance and no I am not Gay lol. Many ppl laugh at this fact which is why i have never been able to share my work with anyone. Till a month ago I was too ashamed to post my work on a website cuz of this but i have recently found out that many other blokes write romance fiction. It is high time too, we can write it just as well as the girls.
O.k here is some important information. You might be wondering why i have removed chapters 2 and 3 from Booksie and why I am not updating, well i have only recently decided to shift base. You can still find this novel, at www.wattpad.com, i have added 4 chapters there. My username is pheonix-on-fire and the novel is called "A Christmas Wish". so come on over if you are curious to know how this story progressess. I am planning to serialize this novel so you'll have plenty of chapters to enjoy. If u guys want to know why i made the move there are 2 reasons
1) I am concerned about the plagiarism on this site
2) It is so much easier to edit and fix my work on wattpad. They also have brilliant support and lets face it the site is more fun, Sorry Booksie. Here is the direct link to my novel, enjoy ;-)
or just look for pheonix-on-fire
