    Hey there! what have you been up to lately? I haven't been on Movellas in a while and I miss chatting with you! I was wondering if you're on Twitter? I'm on there a lot more and I'd love to stay connected with you. Feel free to add me if you like: https://twitter.com/ink_and_quills :)

    hey dear! I've not been doing much, just flitting between college work and writing and having a crisis over major writers block with one story. What have you been doing? I see you have a writing tip blog, I've just been looking at it and it's so pretty and great!
    I actually did away with my Twitter early last year because I never used it. But I do have a Tumblr if you want my url? And I also have Facebook?

    Same here! Except instead of writer's block I am suffering from extreme procrastination. Bah. Have you broken through your writer's block yet? Aww thanks, I'm so glad you like it!!! :D I've been working on it for months haha.
    Hmm I don't have a tumblr and am not sure how that site works (I know, I know lol), but I do have Facebook! I am here: facebook.com/kaitlin.hillerich
    Also, I have a random picture of a tiny turtle devouring a strawberry as my cover photo. Don't judge o.o

    Procrastination has taken over my college work. Nope, not yet, it's because I'm sorting out how to change it so I can work with it properly and not have. I'm going to be using it for help and advice from now on!
    It took me a while to work it all out and now I can't keep to the same theme for more than a few months. I've surprised I've had my current url for as long as I have (but it's precious so that might be why).
    I've sent you a request. Aww, that picture is so cute!

    Wow. You have me hooked! You have a fantastic style and write very well! The story is very interesting so far and there's a lot of tension with Jay. I'm curious to know more, especially what she did to be made a Glacial. You definitely have a very promising future as a writer! Excellent work, can't wait to read more :)

    Dreamless. Emotionless. Detached. Glacial. Violet has had her ability to feel emotions wiped from her, turning her into a Glacial. Any emotion she ever feels from now on will be the result of an injection...

    I just finished the prologue and the first chapter and I'm already hooked! I loved how the prologue started out all normal and then I was totally caught off guard and jarred by the girl with the creepy illness! Did not see that coming. I really like your writing style, you use a lot of sensory detail that made me feel like I was experiencing the story. At the end of chapter one where she's taking the girl back to her house, you should probably mention that's where she's going. I was a little confused at first but was able to figure it out. Great start, I'm curious to keep reading when I get a chance, especially after that cliffhanger in chapter 1 haha.

    This is a great beginning! I love the idea of her being a notorious criminal, and I really like the name 'the Raven'--very mysterious. I also like how you start right at the action and the story gets going right away. You also do a good job of weaving in pieces to make us curious--what did she steal and why? How did she become a notorious thief? What is the moonstone? What's her real name? You make me want to keep reading and get the answers.

    I do have one suggestion--your setting is a medieval-style fantasy, but your dialogue feels too modern. There's nothing technically "wrong" with it and you have some great lines (like the part where she demands his shirt, or when she tells him to go do his "apprenticing"), but I would consider tweaking the vernacular to match the time period. If you read a few YA novels set in a medieval time period you'll get a feel for that sort of dialogue.

    I'm curious to find out what happens next! :)
