About Me: *deleted all the personal crap I put on here when I was 16* ___________________________________________________________ I'm 19, a lit and creative writing student, an avid reader, devoted writer, over-protective pet owner, literal OCD-ist, and occasional human being. _______________________________________________________________ I only post small pieces of work on here, so check out my novella "Tallulah" in the link below. I'll do swaps when I have time, and free reads on occasion (if I have the time and your work interests me), but I don't do heart swaps. I read and offer honest feedback just as I'd like my readers to do for me. ______________________________________________________________ Check out my novella on Amazon: Four-year-old Tallulah's life revolves around playschool, cBeebies, and her stuffed teddy, Baby-Bear. It also revolves around Mummy's Bad Days, the men that come to the house, and most of all, the mysterious "Papa". She doesn't know that other four-year-olds don't make their own meals, or hide from strange men in the middle of the night. She doesn't know that everything in her life is balanced on somebody else's decision: the right to keep her mother in her life, to leave her in her home. Nor does she know of the biggest decision of them all: the decision to bring her into this dangerous world, or to stop her before she can even begin. A decision that's still going on, every day of her life, in one moment of her mother's. __________________________________________________________ Tallulah by Rubie Mainprize http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00N5917AA/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_9X.nub013Y0S4

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been on Figment. I just wanted to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the support and encouragement you gave me as a little fledgling writer by reading my stories and following my work. I’m not sure I would be at the stage I am now without you.

However, now I have branched out from Figment to other places. If you still wish to read my writing, or to support me as a writer, I’d like to invite you, if you use these social medias, to follow me either on my tumblr blog, kira’swriterthings , or on my Facebook page here. This way, I can better connect with you, and vis versa. Not only do I post my writing, but also writing tips and advice, if that appeals to you.

Most of what I am focusing on is the first in my fantasy series, Clover Raine and the Black Dragon, which is currently in the beta reader stage. I will be sharing my experiences as I work forward and publish, hopefully helping others in the process. I’m also in the planning stages for a writing vlog.

Thank you for everything! I wish on you a thousand good hair days.
