I am an aspiring artist and author living in England. I write fantasy fiction that spans a range of genre's, usually involving lots of blood, violence and sex. Some of what I have written can be found on my fictionpress.net profile under the same username and I have released my first book on Amazon kindle (Fledgling: A zenros Story). I am entirely self taught and am very open and eager for help improving my style and work both written and visual so feedback and advice is always greatly appreciated. You can also find me on Facebook, Fictionpress, Tumblr and DeviantART under the same username.

    mumbled "Leaving Movella's"

    So yeah, I'm leaving Movellas. Sorry guys. :( I'm finding this site impossible to keep up with (It keeps changing on me) and lately I've discovered that my work can apparently be downloaded to read as an eBook without my consent? Sorry, that doesn't work for me! It's fine for me to upload my drafts for public reading and review on the internet but once a book is complete, I remove it, edit it, and release it as an ebook for sale on Amazon Kindle, so having a feature where people can download the draft copy without asking me is extremely counter productive and in my opinion... rude. For those who were enjoying Childe, you can find the completed Childe I on fictionpress under the same username. Please be aware that as it is now completed I will be removing it in the next few weeks for the edit and re-release process. You can also find me on my facebook page 'Dixie990' and on DeviantArt. Thanks for all the support you guys have given me thus far, I hope to see you on one of my other pages!

    mumbled "Childe is back! :D"

    So... when I put Childe on hold I promised it wouldn't take long to get things fixed and running again.... and... that was a LONG time ago. I can only appologise. There is a comically literal 'bump in the road' of real life that has slowed me down monumentally more than I would like and even my beloved writing projects had to be put on the back burner while I dealt with the dealing of that! BUT.... it's finally DONE! Childe IS back and just as badass as ever so please do give it a read and let me know what you think of this latest (and definitely FINAL) version! I plan to go back to my old fledgling ways and release a new chapter every fortnight (weekly is a bit more than I can manage atm) but there may be a short delay in chapters towards end of September / start of October because of that bump in the road thing. I will get new chapters out as quickly as I can. BIG thank you to everyone who's stuck with me and a BIG thank you in advance for your continued patience. :) Don't forget you can keep up with updates and my related artwork on my Facebook page, Dixie990. See you soon!

    mumbled "I'm still here!!!"

    Time for a token progress update to assure people that I'm still alive and kicking.... mostly. Has the website changed while I've been away?? I think it's changed... I can't find the right buttons (not that I could find them before but y'know...)

    Last time I posted Zenros was imploding... It seemed the more I worked on it the more issues I found with the background work that served as the foundation for Childe and indeed the entire fledgling series. Of course, when it rains it pours and while I was desperately trying to salvage as much as I could, real life came a long and made some rather spectacular and major changes to my life as well that slowed down progress. BUT on a much brighter note I can now happily say that I fixed it! The timeline is back on track, my vampires are waiting patiently for orders and I even managed to reign in real life to something more manageable so.... back to work for Dixie990! I am now going through the process of re-reading EVERY chapter of Childe. It's getting a thorough clean up, edit and, in some cases I've re-written scenes and chapters entirely to improve quality and fit with the alterations I've had to make. I am, however, doing my best to keep as much as I can the same as it was so that my current readers should, theoretically, be able to pick up where they left off with relatively few issues rather than start over. Today I'm working on chapter 8/18 (there will be more chapters than that in Childe but 18 is what I have written already) and that's taken me about 2 weeks so, theoretically I should be able to get back to regular posts very soon, (providing real life doesn't rain on my parade anymore!) Fingers crossed, right?? :D

    mumbled "Appologies"

    2 years agoReply
    My first Mumble and it's an apology! I'm still getting used to this whole 'My work is on more than one website' thing, so while I kept my readers up to date over on Fictionpress & via my Facebook page, I forgot to add any kind of comments here on Movella's. Basically Childe hasn't been updated in a while... I know, and I'm really sorry to anyone who's been waiting on that... truth is I made the mistake of ironing out my timeline a few weeks back only to realise I was working Childe on the WRONG one... one that was ten years old... and it caused SERIOUS plot holes and continuity errors in Childe. (Things like the character Casey would have been at least a century dead by now, and would never have had the chance to meet Heather and Nick having been born at least a century ago.... blah blah blah...) Because ALL of my stories are interlinked and set in the same universe problems with Childe mean problems for all my stories, including seemingly unrelated work set ten thousand years before and after so... right now I am sitting at home, bashing my head against my keyboard as I try to prevent Zenros from imploding. I THINK I've just about fixed the timeline issues (after reorganising the entire Zenros cosmos) and I'm now going over all my stories to make the necessary edits. I'm also giving Childe a polish while I go, cause I figure may as well do the job properly... so yeah... that's why there's been no updates and a lot of silence from the land of Dixie990. Sorry about that peeps... I'll be back soon! ;)

    That's okay, you update faster than most people, so even this wait is like NOTHING in comparison. The timeline flaws... actually made me laugh. That sounds like something I would do, except far worse. Take all the time you need- it's still far FAR better than a once a year ASOIAF fanfiction!

    Ah, thanks muchly. :) I hate being inconsistent is all, and I write A LOT (I'm technically a self-employed author now that Fledgling has been released on Amazon), so I figure I don't have much of an excuse for not updating regularly really. XD
