This story is getting longer than I had anticipated. Also, call for beta readers.
I've been writing the story of Scholar Forizano Lysvalo and his experiences with dark sorceress Lady Lyria Spellspinner and her family. I must say, I'm starting to feel a little restricted by the short story format. I've just finished the second story, "Secrets," and the tale is not complete yet. Already kinda begun the third story, "Becoming." I *had* hoped to finish the initial tale in two stories, but it just didn't work out that way. Hopefully it won't go over three parts, especially since I have two other story ideas that will have to wait until this particular tale is done. But I'm not interested in novel-length stuff just yet. May eventually string the stories together as a novel, but for now, they are short stories.
In the mean time, anyone who wants to beta-read "The Outsider" and "Secrets" to help point out flaws, plot holes, grammar issues, etc., the time draws nigh. Those already on the beta reader list will be sent those soon. Anyone else who wants to help beta these, please PM me with your email address or email me at fayanora at gmail dot com with your username so I know who you are.
