"The world of Euteria was once a place where young cats could roam free, yet now the time has changed as humans flooded the secret world. The once beautiful domains are now choked by the hands of the humans who yearn to control and cage the magical cats. Now is the time to fight back, but who can take down such powerful humans? The very obscurities that engulf Euteria, are now at the mercy of the Flame Point who must rise to salvage it. Yet, will the damage the humans caused be deemed too much? Submerse yourself in a world of dark twists, where promises are broken, hearts are betrayed and hope becomes a fleeing memory. Plunge yourself into the world of Flame Points."
I have loved writing from the time I could comprehend that it was possible for me to write my own stories. I was reading a book in sixth grade, went to my mother and raved about how amazing it was and how lucky the author was to accomplish such a thing. My mother told me that I could accomplish writing a book, that nothing is out of my reach. I took her advice and started writing. Now, almost a decade later, I am writing my own book in hopes that it will be published, just like that book I read so eagerly, many years ago.
My dream in life is to publish a book that people can connect to. It has never been about the money, the fame or recognition. I have lived by a motto that if one person picks up my book and connects with it, have it touch their heart in a way that can help them, that is my dream.
My readers are as important to me as my family. Your feedback, support, criticism and advice are what helps me strive to become a better writer. I am honored that so many of you are interested in my soon to-be published works. If you are a watcher of mine, I will sign a copy for each and every one of you that are interested, as a thanks for all that you have done for me.
If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
Ah, I haven't been online in a long time--or long enough to comment back to everyone's notes and comments. I'm sorry if you commented or noted and I have not responded back yet. I do plan on responding!
RAMBLE STARTS HERE: First of all, I feel like I should explain some things... 1) I haven't been on a lot because of school. Like, literally it takes my whole life. I am majoring in Creative Writing AND English, so my life and minds is in a constant essay-induced coma. I got accepted into UCR () I know, it has been a long time coming. I'll be transferring as a Junior so at least that makes me feel a little better. Words from the semi-wise, don't switch majors when you only have a couple classes left ^_^; bahaha, eh, you live and learn right? 2) On top of school work I have three novels in the works. Flame Points, as many of you know, Dark Wings, as you guys also know, and a new one that's still a secret for now. It's called Damned or Divine. I also have my newspaper writing job, so I write columns offering pet advice and creative writing stories. On top of that, I work at a retail job. So, you can sorta understand how DA has been semi-gone from my mind atm. I do plan on slowly coming back, but also, once I get settled and everything, it'll become easier. Or maybe a life as a creative individual is always busy, because our minds are constantly clicking.
WRITING UPDATES: 1) Flame Points, as many of you know, I planned on re-writing it. Sweet baby Jesus, I re-read what I wrote and realized holy crap, it definitely needed work. So, I'm happy to announce, that the story is completely changing, new plot, same characters, different names and not as dark... somewhat. You all know I love writing my dark stories, haha! Anyways, I finally wrote out the entire outline and am very happy with the direction so I am beginning to write it. 2) Dark Wings, has gone through the beta reader stage. It has received rave remarks--which was surprising, but I would hope working on a story for 5 years, re-doing it 3 times in different POV's would make it better. I remember when I broke up with an ex (which is when I get most of my creative juices going, haha) I wrote Dark Wings every single day, all day. It ended up being 160,000 words. So... you can imagine how much I had to cut it down. So, not only was that cut into two novels, the plot changed haha. An Artist is never satisfied. Oh, anyways, yes, so DW is moving into the hands of two Professors that I highly trust, and once I get their edit through--I'll be sending it to an editor and off to a publisher. *Fingers crossed* Which my mom randomly told me that Dr. Seuss and J.K. Rowling got denied for publication over 20 times. Isn't that insane?!
INSTAGRAM: So, I actually had no idea what instagram even was. Like, I'm actually the kind of girl that hardly uses apps. I think the only one I have and actually use is Facebook. Anyways, my friend, who begged me to get one, for some reason I have no clue of, said it is an amazing app that lets you see people post pictures. I thought, how is that even entertaining? I can do that on FB... But eh, I gave it a try. And I actually like it. I just started, but it sorta makes me feel like its my own little world in there--much like writing makes me feel like. I will most likely post my writing on there--some poems and some quotes. Also, I will probably post some of my baked goodies on there as well as fitness and diet ideas. I think I know how hard it is to stick to your diet because diet has always been my issue. I'm a beast in the gym but when I have to eat--I like to eat EVERYTHING. Haha. Sorry for talking so much, I just wanted to let you guys know what I have been up to. (Oh btw, I will probably post a lot of cat stuff on my accnt since... I'm a crazy cat person, which would be obvious from Flame Points haha!)
What to expect from me: More writing samples, my commissions/art trades (sorry guys, I'm really trying to keep up with notes), and just being a happier and more active me. Love you guys, and if you have any questions that you would like to ask, shoot me a note or comment below!
THIS. JUST. HAPPENED. AHHH! "Sierra" was a major success!!!! I have been talked to by many people who loved this story! Many have volunteered to be beta readers of mine for the "Dark Wings" publication/editing process. Life is getting better and better!!!!!
I couldn't have gotten this far without all the support from this site. Thank you everyone.
I had a choice to make. It was simple, or at least was deemed as such by my superiors. I committed my life to an oath, a series of sentences that branded and controlled my life—almost as much as Eva Castle controlled me. I’m constantly torn between my honor and this woman. I prayed that somehow I could attain happiness in both spectrum's—but I had been denied. It was no secret that she was off limits, as she was a winged being, imprisoned by my kind, by the same humans I swore to protect. Disobeying the crown would surely be a sinister price, but yet would I be willing to pay to become the hand that was to save her? Or was I to leave her behind?

He was different, a warrior that fought in a battle that he did not wish to win. I care for him dearly, a yearning I could only feel for him. Yet, as realistically as I knew I would never escape from my imprisonment, I knew the choice he would have ultimately made. I was a fallen Angel, a thorn in the eye of this dreaded planet, yet they were right in forcing me into incarceration, for what I had been destined to do to this world would not be favorable. That man, that human however, he intrigued me and I watched as a seed grew within my body, becoming a vessel between this world and my own. I cannot lie that I was wavering in thoughts about this warrior of a different realm. Who was he to me?
Hello there, it's Reiyaa here, but you can call me Rei. I am here to strengthen my art of writing by taking on story commissions and dropping little teasers of my personal book Dark Wings. I plan to get it published in the near future, so you can watch my editing process located under the Dark Wings box.
To tell you a little more about myself, I work at a pet store called Petco as a sales expert. So, if you have any problems or questions about reptiles, birds, small animals or fish, you can drop a comment down or shoot me a note. I am a lover of animals and I am majoring in Veterinary Science. I also have a columnist job for my local town and there I write Pet Columns.
All these characters belong to me. They are all stars in their own stories. The little kitties are from my series Flame Points, while the Angels are from my story Dark Wings.
