Congratulations, Hermione! I know you’ve been working hard, and you’ve told me you’ve made good use of the Super Secrets many times. May this be the start of many more great things for you! Well done!

Thanks!

Hmm. Both a lot, and a little. The plot itself hasn't changed at all since Dave saw it, but the characters have more depth and there have been a number of prose edits as I've learned more and improved my craft.

If you're interested in an HM that reached publication, check it out! It's a fantasy about Grundar, who wants vengeance, and Epohar, who just wants to survive. Enjoy!

Nice! I especially love your openings. Tonight, Grundar would kill the Wizard. Can't stop reading after that! Not to mention that it does double duty, with the end circling around to the beginning.

Nice job! It seems like a story that you could even expand to novel length - lots of potential in that world!

Finally got a chance to read it. Reminded me of Lies of Locke Lamora (which I really like so this is only meant as a compliment) with the heist and fantasy aspect.

I especially liked this description:

"...Wrinkles pressed on wrinkles ..." Congratulations again!
