    Another fantastic story. I seriously don't know how you keep coming up with all these amazing stories. This one is as well written as usual, a great premise and well executed so far. Looking forward to more :)

    Sounds a good book, will add to my bulging TBR list. If you like this you may enjoy Stephen Baxter's Flood series, or Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy :) Good review :)

    mumbled "Movellas and all that"


    I used to get up each morning and before work I'd check Movellas for new messages and stories to read. This last few weeks have been a drudge to log on. The blog page is full of spam, now the mumbles page and the stories page are affected. It's almost as though we've been abandoned. I've tried to stay loyal and keep up reading new stories, but it just seems that the heart and soul is missing. There's still some great writers left and some stories to read.

    Whilst I will always come back on here, it was my first writing site, I won't be as regular as I once was. One of the projects I've been working on is https://lovethisbook.club. I'm aiming to give writers, published or aspiring, a place to promote themselves, as well as provide author advice and recommended books. It's open to anyone who'd like another place to promote themselves.

    As I say I haven't left and will still be participating in the Give Away and putting stuff here to read.

    As I say I can't pull myself away from here completely. After almost 6 years, it's still in my DNA and would love for it to resurrect itself as a writing site. I'd be back like a shot. Met so many great people on here who've helped me cope with various things over the years. It helped my anxiety and depression having somewhere to go and not be judged for who I am, but what I do.

    lovethisbook isn't meant to replace this place, just offer a bit of support to struggling authors. @[The Intelligence Division] I love music but don't have talents in that direction, hence the focus on writing, although my writing at the moment isn't doing anything. If you have any ideas how if a similar media site would be of interest let me know :) @Rain :) Thanks for looking, you're welcome to join. The forums are as slack as here but I live in the hope they get going :) @[Katie Pharoah] Marvelous about the job, what are you doing ? Hope the writing goes well.

    So I'll still be around but can also be contacted on my social media (links in profile) or via my website :)

    Me too. i think its also a seasonal problem/ its summer now and many writers are on vacation and taking summer breaks which is a shame. tbh movellas activity peaks through winter months and christmas season before dying out again

    Everything has their peak and off seasons. @[Shaun JH Nightshade] My new job is in digital marketing, so social media, blogging and the like :)
