ah the darkness of
a treacherous heart, darkness
itself bows before!
Maria (mariathermann.wordpress.com/) suggested me jukepopserials and scribd- and after my initial trying five sites, i loved these two very much. Thanks a lot Maria, these helps mean a lot to me, God bless your huge heart and your amazing talent!
It gives you the promise of quite a good readership, it clearly shows you what you have shared, and how many persons have accessed that plus it allows you to sell your work, collects its commission from your sales.
I really love websites where i dont have to fumble around like walking in a maze.
the site address is scribd.com
my profile there is scribd.com/ sharmishthabasu
Next one is jukepopserials, I loved it too… if you go there and check out the way it helps its writers you will know why Maria praises it and I too have started to like it.
my user profile there is sharmishthabasu again, I try to keep this id wherever I can… the same spelling helps :)
the site id is – jukepopserials.com/
If you want to make some money and have confident on your works try it out.
His dinner was waiting for him on the table.
Indu sat down on a chair opposite him, giving him company.
“You wont join me? I will be glad if you do…” he asked before starting.
“You most probably will ruin your appetite if you see me nibbling on buds or sipping dewdrop…” Indu smiled, we elves dont need much energy from outer sources, the earth provides us our necessary energy.
“Some of us take up human eating habits, just for fun.. some never eat or drink… some follow the middle path.. I belong to the latter group.” She said, “Enjoy your food…”
He finished up and she left.
He picked up the box and went to bed with it.
There was a gentle glow in the room, that seemed to be observing his movement, the minute he opened the box the light became brilliant enough for reading.
There were letters and a diary. The letters were old but the diary was comparatively new, it had his father’s name engraved on it.
He opened the diary.
If you are reading this diary you must be my son or daughter, well, there is no use trying to keep track of dates and times in this realm, so I am just skipping that part.
You are not only my child, you are sitting on the same bed where I was sitting when I opened this box, given by Indu, the elf.
As I have been suggested by my father, enter the red room first. It is easiest.
In the hall of the temple, there are things you should must carry before entering the rooms.
0ne, a cloak- it will make you transparent like wind, light, creatures will be able to feel you, and may be see you too but wont be able to do anything to you… not even in the darkest rooms, but in the darker rooms they will try to trick you to lose the cloak, because just like wind, light you wont be able to touch, feel or taste anything while you are wearing that cloak.
two, a weapon – the weapon will be of your choice… it will allow you to penetrate any form of energy, creature that you will encounter in any of these rooms, but… they too will have the power to shield themselves, especially in darker rooms.
three, a ring – if you want to escape or are bored… just want to go home, wear this ring, it will take you back to the hall, but remember, once you are out of a door you wont be able to enter there again. No matter what you do.
four, the vial – save it like your breath my child, this vial will contain a liquid, enough for ten consumptions, every sip will bring you back to full health, even if you were almost dead. Save it for the darker rooms.
I wont spoil your fun by telling you what are in those rooms, but my child, think well before getting addicted to the thrills of those rooms. Think well, if you will rather prefer to live a luxurious life in the realm you belong or live the life of a warrior in this one.
I chose latter.
much love… your father.
He placed the box in the bedside table and laid down.
The light started to dim, soon it was almost dark inside the room, just enough light was there to walk around the room in case…
He fell asleep and slept like a small baby.
He woke up, he assumed he has slept long enough because his body was relaxed. But the room was still dark, but it slowly started to brighten up when he opened his eyes fully, it was daylight outside… and he could hear the fabulous melody of birds and creatures that all of a sudden entered the room.
Perfect environment for sleep… he thought…cool! Ah! if only this feature could be transported to the world he lived in. So many people will bless him!

Jukepopserials.com has accepted my first story, it feels really good, when someone is not averse to pay money for something you have written.
You will have to check out the paying terms and conditions though, the amazon account they allow to create accepts only US citizens.
As money is not my top priority right now I have just asked them about the rules of payment, if they accept Indian accounts then I will have to ask my bro, because I dont have one but he does.
Will keep you updated.
Now, if you want to share your long stories, divided in chapters with serious readers, and you love to know where you are standing you should try this site, jukepopserials.com, they dont make a fuss if your work has been published before, that is a really great thing and I certainly am grateful for that. Because over the years I have written some long stories in WP that I will love to get tested. God bless them!
Now, if you join there do check out my story too and if you will vote for it that will be just great :)
Thanks a lot Jukepopserials and Maria (mariathurman.wordpress.com), Maria for showing me the site and jukepop for liking my story. Thanks again and God Bless!
Just love it!
When I checked my story today I was totally surprised to see that it has won its first vote… that felt really good! Believe me!
It feels so good….
Hope my stories will win more hearts, votes and I will become one of their permanent authors.
Wish me luck!
In my new world men will be finally cured from the idiotic notion that they are the superior or better of the two genders.
In that world men and women will live in harmony, will live like they are supposed to, two essential parts of human civilization. Equally beautiful and precious.
Women will have full right on her body and no woman will ever be exploited in that world, nor men. Women will be as safe as men are in that world.
They could go anywhere, live anywhere on their own, at any hour of day and men will act like human beings.
