Hello friendly follower!

Hello, I was wondering if you would be interested in a swap. I'm working on a new novel called Loved by Darkness, and need some fresh opinions, as it's still in rough formation. As of right now it's only a 7min read, so don't get scared. Just let me know what you'd like read in return. Thanks! P. S. I update the story daily.

Hey there! Up for a swap? Can you please read Burning Rage?

It's a contest entry reliant on hearts,(only heart it if you think it deserves it please)and I need about 15o more hearts before the 19th. can you help me out?

If you want to do a swap, then please read my swap rules and I have to warn you that it might take me a while to return it.

If you do free reads, than that would be awesome if you could read my story.

If you are not open to swaps or free reads(or if I already asked) than I apologize for spamming your wall.

Good afternoon (morning, night) how are you on this fine (terrible, all right) day?

I am going to do something phenomenal, ask you, dear figmenter, for a swap.

Okay, not that astronomical, but better than spam, right?

If you concur with this insanely original idea, please read Angel of Despair, and give whatever reaction you deem fit. It is for the Brandon Sanderson contest, so keep in mind hearts are what wins. But, I'm not looking just to win the competition, I also want to win your heart. So don't give it unless you think I deserve it.

After you have read my short story please, leave a comment on my wall to tell me what to read.

Danke schoen for reading this, and I'm very sorry if I ruined your day. Ttfn, ta ta for now!

Good day to you, Mari.

I assume that, being a member of Figment.com, you are a writer, and there's a fair likelihood that you're a reader as well. Being a member of Figment.com also means that you've probably had to put up with an endless stream of *shudder* wall swaps--and here's another. Kind of.

I've taken on the endeavor of entering the Brandon Sanderson contest, which is unfortunately a heart-based contest. So, here I am, on my virtual knees seeking your lovely time to check out Forbidden Fruit, and heart it ~if and only if~ you like it. I don't want fake hearts. This is not a heart swap. I want to earn hearts by being worthy of yours.

In return for your precious time and opinion, I'll give back--thricefold. I'll check out some of your stuff, give my critiques and praise, and, if I like it (and I probably will), promote it & you on my blog--if I love it, elsewhere as well. Not to mention, my verified author status has gained me a bit of a following--so it might be worth it.

In either case, keep being darling.


Isabella Rogge

Author of Sanguine Moon

TL;DR: Aiiii darling, honest swap?
