OP is a fa-


mous author!
User avatar #38 - gravitystereo (05/09/2013) [-]
you missed two commas in the back description alone
come on

Like I said I'm missing a few things, and I do know that; this is the first book I ever wrote, so of course there's gonna be mistakes. I will take this knowledge and use it to make the next four better. Иметь хороший день.
User avatar #61 to #46 - aviatrix (05/10/2013) [-]
But dude, that's... basic English grammar right there. I'm shocked such glaring mistakes made it past an editor. Did you have and editor?

You should have had this anon as the editor, he's onto it.
#304 to #61 - teymos (05/13/2013) [-]
no, because i was a little low on money.
#306 to #304 - teymos (05/13/2013) [-]
I mean I'm not saying that i didn't edit it myself, but that was my downfall. Sometimes to see it, others must see.
User avatar #312 to #306 - aviatrix (05/14/2013) [-]
Okay, okay. It's more understandable if you didn't have an editor.
#313 to #312 - teymos (05/15/2013) [-]
yeah trust me it wouldn't have been bad.
User avatar #246 to #61 - ydosac (05/10/2013) [-]
Not really his fault if the editor missed it. It's his job to create a great story not to be perfect at grammar. I know I would perfer a great story riddled with mistakes than to read something boring with perfect grammar.
User avatar #255 to #246 - aviatrix (05/10/2013) [-]
Being a good writer is about having both. Otherwise, you're any other child with a good imagination. Being a writer is bringing that to life with ethereal descriptions and fluidity in words. Combine that with the right characters, development, and meaning, and you've got yourself one hell of a novel.
#305 to #255 - teymos (05/13/2013) [-]
The story is good everything is good but i did bad on the back. Yes there may be a few mistakes but this is my first book. Harry Potter, the first book had a few mistakes, and the last book was art. I still have four more books planned out and i will get better. All of this negativity is what i call feed back, and they didn't even read the book.
User avatar #298 to #255 - ydosac (05/11/2013) [-]
I get what you are saying but I think you can tell a good story without having perfect grammar
User avatar #148 to #61 - owmowmow (05/10/2013) [-]
I think its Xlibris who published his book.
#12 - kosicandavid (05/09/2013) [-]
Congratulations !!! I hope that one day you will be reputable author !

#281 to #23 - teymos (05/10/2013) [-]

Your back cover is missing commas all over the place.

I'm getting close, need to get the money to pay for an editor/publisher, then I'll have two novels published, as a new author XD.

Totally not like he said it's his pen name at all...
User avatar #205 - RaptorJesus ONLINE (05/10/2013) [-]
The back cover was a goddamn nightmare... missing punctuation, terrible writing, and it made me feel like i was reading a 5th grader's fictional story assignment or some **** ...
User avatar #208 to #205 - bigbeaufort (05/10/2013) [-]
Yeah, I was about to point that out. Perhaps he should have had the internet proof read it first?
User avatar #149 - AnAnon (05/10/2013) [-]
After reading the summary on the back...I think this would suck to read, but would probably be an interesting movie.
#151 to #149 - teymos (05/10/2013) [-]
dont judge a book by its cover... This is the first out of five so I'm gonna be taking the knowledge i get from the first one and make the second one better and so on
User avatar #317 to #151 - Obot (05/15/2013) [-]
Question for you, I have seen a lot of posts saying that you personally know that this first book is pretty bland and generic (both in writing and grammar) , now I have to ask you if you think it's a good idea to continue a series that has gotten off to a boring start or to go back and re-write the first book?
#320 to #317 - teymos (05/16/2013) [-]
yes i will continue with the series, like you've been reading and I will stand by my statements. Its my first, just because a few family members dont like it doesn't mean i stop. This isn't the main book anyways. Rebirth is, I just wrote this one because when you read it you won't get confused. Now just because a few poeple ( ******* anons) don't like it, oh well.
#321 to #320 - teymos (05/16/2013) [-]
well except that guy done that he's cool
User avatar #169 to #151 - HorriblyCrazy (05/10/2013) [-]
I'm kind of on the same page, only because of how the summary is written.

That being said, I don't know the story and it might be an amazing book. English and Literature are just basically my life, and so improper grammar drives me up the wall.
#273 to #169 - teymos (05/10/2013) [-]
For a first book ever written, i knew that my grammar was going to be a little off, however this is why I posted it on FJ, because for me to see it (because this is my dream) i will need others to burst the bubble
User avatar #152 to #151 - AnAnon (05/10/2013) [-]
=) If I see it at the library I'll pick it up and give it a chance. Congrats at getting a book published.
#154 to #152 - teymos (05/10/2013) [-]
Thanks

Description:
When the ESF/ AGAST war broke out both sides would use any angle to their advantage even assassins. As the war continued they to were forced to choose a side. However when one assassin rose up with a gift the two sides tried to not let the other one have him. However he too was forced to choose a side. In the year 2173, Teymos became not only the most powerful assassin in the galaxy but also the most wanted. As the bounty rises old friendships will be tested and new bonds will be forged in blood.

Op basically payed money to be self published. I won't comment, at least he invested in something he cares about.
#59 - dmustaine (05/10/2013) [-]
Dude you write like **** . Other people have pointed out your lack of commas but neglected to mention the fact that the entire back cover was atrocious
User avatar #60 to #59 - dashgamer (05/10/2013) [-]
I was just about to say something to that effect, but you beat me to it. I really hate it when novels that are officially published, that have been perused by professional editors, have glaring flaws in grammar and syntax, and when they let crap like this through: an overplayed theme with a writing style that lacks all the style.
The cover is all I have to judge the book by, but even from that I can confidently conclude that the whole project is an affront to literary integrity and standards.

don't bash OP about his back cover, ffs. It's not his fault, but the editors'.
#17 - anon (05/09/2013) [-]
The grammar mistakes and run-on sentences on the back made me question how you would ever get published.

I think I read this book before, called Order of the Phoenix or something
#309 to #75 - teymos (05/13/2013) [-]
its not Harry Potter, its not even close. And besides her book is way better than mine
#310 to #309 - jinapayne (05/13/2013) [-]
I know, I was just joking
#311 to #310 - teymos (05/13/2013) [-]
still, do you know another word for rebirth, but isn't a word that's dead give away?

There's also four more books planned out

There was a senior named Alec Martin at my High school this year who just left, would you happen to be the Alec Martin who just graduated from the Hillsborough High IB program?
