    No shit - she hasn't been published yet, but this is her 3rd book.

    I proofread and edit them all, and to date this one is much more polished, with a better focus on character development - which I keep ragging her for.

    3 full novels by 21...keep telling me I did a bad job raising this little girl by myself as a teen. It won't work.

    I have permission to release up to Chapter 7 out of 30, if anybody cares to see how much she's developed as a writer.

    she needs to write about romantic teenage vampires having interracial relations with teenage zombies. all the pre-pubescent girls are eating that shit up. if she writes the stories with european landscapes the publishers will fly her to europe so she can sign books for the kiddies. every few days there's another recently published teenie authoress appearing on twitter about their latest romantic monster books.

    She's going to deal with a LOT of rejection. Thankfully, she has her mom's ego.

    And she just won't stop - she tells me that writing is therapeutic for her. :dontknow: She also writes songs and poetry. She's GOOD...I know I'm jaded, but I'm not stupid. I'm her harshest critic. She's good.

    That's very cool, if it's something she almost has to do then she has a passion for it and she's well on her way.

    Good for proud momma too.

    She's only 21. I find them more geared to teenagers, and have told her as much. Solid market, but it's a struggle for me sometimes to get through them, 'cause I'm old.

    She writes what she knows though.

    It's cool that she's so passionate about it. Any way you could talk her into throwing in some vampires or wizards?
    It's hard to get published, but remember they all laughed at J K Rowling.

    She refuses to conform, Froggy.

    No idea where she got that trait from. :whistle:
