    Phoenix (Phoenix Elite #1)

    Elora Rae Gannon believes her life is over. On her sixteenth birthday she receives news that she is a mythical monster of hellish proportions and if that's not bad enough, she receives this information in the form of a letter from her dead mother who also informs her that she must become part of an elite secret society of others like herself or die. Sucky birthday, huh? And just when she thinks she's got it all figured out, her new-found family in the Elite forces her to break ties with her human BFF shortly before her BFF just up and vanishes. With her world in utter upheaval, Elora makes the move to a new school- Marlind Prep, with full intentions of finding out exactly what is going on behind the scenes and why her best friend has vanished- all while trying to figure out how to successfully make out with her boyfriend without sucking the very life out of him!

Figment is moving to Underlined! Either transition when Underlined opens or find a new writing website. Save your writing!

Yo! I know it's been awhile....actually, more than awhile, since I was even on Figment, but I've come to ask a huge favor.

A very, very close friend of mine is a budding writer, and I hope to encourage her and help her along as she travels this path that all of us on here know so well. If you could drop by and say 'hey' or better yet, give her a review or two, I would be deeply thankful!

Cheers, and thank you for being awesome!

Hi! I have really loved your reviews on my previous two flash fiction pieces, and I just wrote another and would love to know what you think! It is titled "Three Minutes" and I will swap it with something of yours that is similar in length! Thanks so much!
