Author has written 9 stories for Hunger Games.
I discovered the Hunger Games trilogy by accident a couple of years ago and have found this series to be extraordinarily compelling. I have always enjoyed reading for the sheer joy of becoming immersed into a story and recently have discovered the world of fan fiction. I admit that I was disappointed by how the trilogy ended with Mockingjay and I am thoroughly enjoying how fans like myself have "fleshed out" this series and I have been inspired to attempt a story or two myself!
I had an epiphany recently...and that is that fan fiction is basically literary karaoke! I don't mean that in a disparaging way, either, as I really enjoy singing karaoke :-) In both fan fiction and karaoke, you take something that someone else has created, whether musical or literary, and tweak it until you put your own personal stamp on it!
FYI, I do make an attempt to respond to every review that I get, if to do nothing more than to thank the reviewer for reading and reviewing my story! After all, you all have a lot of choices here!
Another FYI - I appreciate constructive criticism, BUT...I also appreciate being able to respond to said criticism. Flame reviews that are posted under the guise of "Guest" with no way for me to directly respond to the reviewer will be reviewed and will be subject to deletion at my discretion. Thank you for your consideration! That being said, I do value ALL constructive reviews - in the long run they make me a better writer :-)
