Profile Information

Hi, I'm Ashley Marie, also known by my artist name, Aianarie. I am currently in the editing stage of my 380-page novel, The Otherkind. It is the first book in a four-part series. Simultaneously, I'm writing several short stories, as well as a prequel for The Otherkind. I try to write at least 2 pages (I usually do much more than that) and 1 poem a day, so as not to get rusty!! :P




My first post here at Booksie is one of my short stories, entitled One Word.  I added "(Goodbye)" because the site apparently already had a work with the title.  The original short story was awarded an Honorable Mention in Springfield (OR) Public Library's 2010 Teen Short Story Contest, has been published by, and is available for public reading at the library.  The version posted here is an updated version, but I would say that 95% of the short story is as featured at the library.




As I mentioned after the summary, the chapters of The Otherkind posted here are the originals.  I didn't really post it here to recieve serious critique (if you see grammar mistakes, though, do let me know), I know it's very poorly written (some of it doesn't even make much sense at all XD)--I wrote most of it when I was 15 and 16 years old.  You can see the drastic changes in substance and style as you get into the later chapters (I wrote chapter fifteen and on from as far as two years ago to as recent as May this year).  I just wanted to share my humble beginnings as YA Fantasy writer, and see what you guys think of the story. ;)




I hope you enjoy my work.  Thanks for looking. :-)
