(If this breaks some rule that I wasn't aware of, please forgive me, for I've been away for some time now.)

Incredible lame pun aside, I just felt like sharing the fact that I do indeed have some novels I've written and am writing - two finished, two in progress. I'm not sure if anybody here's much of a reader, but it is worth mentioning. My main novel series is named RAVAGE, and I'll have links to both of my books below.

As for subject matter; basically if you love werewolves, then my works are a dream, because it's a zombie apocalypse story but with werewolves. Survival, drama, despair and ascending from darkness are obviously the prominent themes but it's still got plenty of romance and comedy to share. In both the original novel, RAVAGE: Apocalypse of Wolves and the prequel RAVAGE: The Book of Hannah, I also take satirical stabs at the current regime of the United States, in a sort of exaggerated way (does "Trumperial Trump Troopers" sound satirical and/or funny enough?) that might amuse some people, though that background's sort of mentioned sparsely.

Both books are available as eBooks (you get a discount if you live in the UK, as sort of promotion and/or tribute to having a story set predominantly in the United Kingdom and with mostly British characters barring two protagonists, some Italians, and Middle Eastern soldiers that show up in the final act), though currently only the first novel's available as a hard copy edition. If you've got five bucks to spare, you can get both books as digital copies anywhere, but like I said, it's discounted if you live in the UK.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077XP56W1 - RAVAGE: Apocalypse of Wolves - the original novel, that's five years into a nation wide apocalypse where quasi-werewolves under the control of an evil spirit being are dominating the UK and basically turning it into a post-apocalyptic nightmare and hunting ground.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BV97KJ1 - RAVAGE: The Book of Hannah - a PREQUEL (I had to stress that - it does contain spoilers to the original in monologue passages) to Apocalypse of Wolves, that focuses heavily on the titular character, the comic relief of the original novel and one of the more complex characters, with it being a bit of an origin story that puts higher strain on both comedy and dark subject matter. Oh, and the cover's hand drawn by yours truly. I think it sucks but it's a placeholder and I'm commissioning an artist on DeviantArt to design a better one.

I can't make mods for games or games like most of the talented men and women here, but I can write like there's no tomorrow. Lemme hear your thoughts, and if it's not too much of a pain in the ass, pick up a copy of one or either novel (by the way, if you don't own a Kindle, that's no hassle - you can download a Kindle app for any iOS device, sign into your Amazon account, and buy it there; you should be able to, at least to the best of my knowledge).

How long did it take you to write those two novels?

The first one; about two years, though I also began writing the second one halfway in, and it ultimately saw a bit of an adrenaline surge to meet a personal release date, which sped up its creation whereas the original was just kind of a "when it's done, it's done" sort of deal.

Enjoy the premise for both works, unfortunate that I have time to read usually throughout the day but I will certainly keep these works in mind as I appreciate the effort of indie writers and their innovative and experimental ways.
