[Edit:] I'm sorry--I was so absentminded and forgot to add this credit: The beginning landscape picture is a picture that I commissioned from Dilekt. I didn't render that one. Everything else (well, except the shot of that scraggly book, which was a random photo) was done by me. My apologies! And thank you all soooo much for the critiques. I can definitely see how the text is fading too fast and why it needs to be lengthened.....I guess I didn't notice it because I'm so used to reading it that I personally can read it okay. Also, I'll try to fix the jerky quality. See, it's hard for me to tell because it doesn't look very jerky on my computer, but I guess it does for most others' computers........hmm...........I did a regular motion tween for them, so I'm not entirely sure how to smooth it out. Still, I'll fiddle around some more with it as I'm revamping the trailer. :) Thanks again! [End Edit]

Any help from all you skilled Flash users out there is HIGHLY appreciated! These are my tragic Flash skills--this is the first time I've ever tried using the program. O_____o

So anyway.....for the past day I've been tinkering around in Flash, hoping to finally learn this program that I've never touched but wanted to for the longest time. What came out was this thing--a semi-trailer sort of thing for TGS......and it kind of sucks, I know. I know, like, 3 commands in Flash. :) The music, while nice in parts, sounds disjointed at the connecting points, so my apologies on that! All sound clips are freeware from Flashkits [link] . I hope this runs somewhat decently on your computer and doesn't crash anything. I can't really tell from my comp. Also, beware--the file is somewhat large, about 1.4 MB, so if you don't want to wait for it to load, I understand. :]

This is also in the works. Once I acquire some decent Flash skills, I'll be adding/revamping this to make it more presentable and hopefully make it some sort of intro for the website [link] Anyway, that's all--hope you enjoy it a little!

I miss the website. Where can I read the story now? :C

I saw the ebook, but I still miss the breathtaking artwork of the website.

Aw, thank you! I think most of the art is scattered around in my deviantArt gallery.

I love this story! Are you going into publication? Is that why the website is gone? If so, how much is the book and where/when can I buy it?! Even though I followed the story from chapter three to the end on the website of the first book I still want a copy of it to read at bedtime! Its just so magical! When will you continue the saga too? I want to know what happens next!

Hi there! Thanks so much for your kind words! :hug: The Glass Sonata isn't getting published, but I did get a book deal recently for my newest story, Legend. (It also stars Day) It will be coming out in December 2011 (next year), from Penguin Books, and will be at all bookstores. :)

Really! I'm definately buying a copy! What author name should I look for? I know there are hundreds of titles called 'Legend' so I want to make sure I get the right one :P

Actually, I was also wondering if you could help me with my novel I'm writing... I've kind of hit a rough spot and can't get past a certain plot point without making it sound so... childish. Feel free to say 'no' if you want but would you mind looking at it and maybe giving me a bit of critical feedback? So far everyone I've asked has just said; "Wow I like it, write more..." or something along those lines but I'm looking for some constructive criticism and a little help... I know I'm a complete stranger and you have no reason to do me a favour, but I won't know unless I ask.

Also, Are you still going to put your story 'Glass Sonata' up somewhere? Like fictionpress(.)com or something? I really want to read it again... and the sequel! :D

Sorry for the essay!

Regards
Zer0

The book will be titled LEGEND by Marie Lu. :) Look for this cover: [link] ! And yeah, at some point I'd definitely love to post Glass Sonata back online somewhere, although it probably won't happen until after Legend comes out.

I'm so sorry to have to turn down the kind request of reviewing others' work, but I'm afraid I'm not allowed to look at and review unpublished manuscripts. :( It's a legal thing (publisher's fear of getting sued) so I have to turn down all such requests. I'm sorry to be a bummer! Wishing you lots of luck with your writing, though. A really great book to pit your manuscript against is called Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass. It helped me a lot when revising my novel. Hope that helps a little!

All your trailers are interesting, but.... they all seem to tell a different story ^^; I haven't read the story or anything though....

I remember seeing this on the site. I wish it wasn't down/gone. Lovely. Much better than I can do (which is nothing xD)
