  1. Wow, thanks Stephanie, Jill, Rachel, and Roseanna!! This is a great way to celebrate!

    I love reading mystery, suspense/thriller, historical romance, and contemporary romance.

  2. Congrats on the 400 members!

    My current novel is an Adventure novel, I like them cause they generally have a little of the other genres mixed in.

    I like pretty much all genres (No horror or anything though) however I lean towards Adventure, Historical and Mystery.

    Question - is there a way I can leave contact info without it being public? And what kind of contact info are you looking for, email, address?

    Thanks to all the contributes, this looks awesome!!

  3. Thanks Stephanie, Jill, Roseanna, and Rachel!!!!

    Congrats to have finally reached 400!

    My current novel is a Historical Romantic Suspense. I write Christian Romance with pretty much any other genre.

    I enjoy reading anything with Christian Romance. It's always a plus if it's Historical. I am fascinated with the earlier times. I love the way they dressed, talked, and, well, I loved everything they did.

    I would love to win any of these prizes, since they all would help me so much!

    I love to read historical fiction, mysteries, thrillers, almost anything really, but mostly conservative, Christian stuff.

  7. This is so exciting! I like to read alot of historical fiction and any novel including horses is pretty good to me. Right now I'm trying to write kind of a medieval fantasy...in that it's medieval wepons, etc., but a different world.

  8. Congratulations on reaching 400!

    I'll admit I haven't been on here long, but I'm very glad I stumbled across this place. It's really helped me out developing characters and plot. Thanks for doing all this to help out the next generation writers!

    When it comes to reading, anything before the 1800's and I'm a historical nut, though I must admit I'm particularly fond of medieval and ancient history. And while I don't write historical, you can bet more than one culture has weaseled it's way into my fantasy races. The current novel I'm working on is a fantasy with lots of action and fairytale twists (I blame that last part on watching too many Disney classics).

  10. Wow! Exciting news on the 400 followers! That' so awesome!

    My favorite genre to read is historical fiction. I especially love mystery/suspense historical books.

    However, when I write, I usually write contemporary. I am not sure why I write a write a different genre than what is my favorite to read. Maybe because I feel like I do not know enough and do not know how to research adequately to fully give my reader understanding of the time period. Like Roseanna White did. Like Elizabeth Camden. Or Brock and Bodie Thoene. I shall have to work on that.

    Thank you for much for the giveaways! We appreciate it so much. And thank you to each of you for putting time and energy into contributing to this blog. Especially a huge thank you to you, Mrs. Morrill. Thank you!

  13. This giveaway looks incredible! And this blog is great - encouraging, helpful, and inspiring. So thank you! I've mostly been writing contemporary YA fiction lately, although I like to try different things. And I read basically anything I can get my hands on (but generally I prefer books that make me think).

  15. I enjoy reading a lot of sci-fi, but could never write it (okay, that's a lie. I'm writing one now.) But I mostly write a lot of romantic comedy young adult novels. Also, hurt-comfort novels are fun to write (wow, what was wrong with THAT sentence?)

  18. I read lots of Christian historical romances and plenty of fantasy/fairy-tale-ish novels and YA. :) I'm also up for the occasional sci-fi/dystopia (I enjoyed the Hunger Games, for instance).

    I write fantasy, but I want to become a historical writer, and my WIP is my first attempt at historical romance. :)

    Thanks for this great giveaway! :)

  19. Wow! Critiques, books, snacks, pencils, paper, cd, mug.... You four are amazing! Thank you so much!

    The genres I most enjoy both reading and writing are mystery and dystopian. I just got my hands on Dorothy Sayer's first Lord Peter Wimsey novel and read it in two days. :) And That Hideous Strength is about my favorite book ever. (Though, I'm not sure that quite qualifies as dystopian...it's really close, anyway. :P) My current WIP is a YA mystery, but I have several ideas for YA dystopian novels after I finish my mystery.

    I have a question: would the 4-page critique be the first four pages of a WIP, or could it be any four pages?

    Thanks again!

    What genre do I write? Wow, I don't have a specific genre. I write a little bit of everything, actually. I don't write horror, and I'm working on romance, but other than that, I write a lot of genres.

    I read almost everything, but I don't really like historical fiction unless it's set in London.

  26. Congratulations on reaching 400 followers, that's fantastic - and what an epic giveaway! I'm so excited to enter. :D Thank you all so much for hosting!

    Currently, my WIP is a contemporary fiction; so far, I've mostly written contemporary fiction and some historical fiction novellas. However, I'd like to try some other genres (like fantasy) at some point. :)

    I don't have a favorite genre to read...I have three! I love a good fantasy - especially high fantasy novels set in another, magical world with rich storylines and prose. (However, I've enjoyed many different kinds of fantasy! :) I also love contemporary fiction with depth; books that deal with issues teens today face. And I can't turn down a good historical fiction, particularly if it's set during the 1900s! I will read just about anything, but those are my top three favorite genres. :)

  30. I'm in the midst of finding a genre that I consistently like, but greatly prefer reading books with strong threads of adventure and suspense. I try to create that in my own books. I primarily write fantasy, after being practically raised on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. However, my current WIP contains dystopic and sci-fi elements as well. I've also written current-day romance, and romantic suspense -- but my calling lies in writing about other worlds, I think.

  31. I like to read:

    Thriller

    Dystopian
    Classics
    Murder mysteries or just plain Mysteries.

    As for writing:
    Fantasy
    Historical
    Action
    Sci-Fi
    And fan fiction.

  36. I like reading stuff from most genres - just not non-Christian-ly stuff. Subject matter and writing style means more to me than genre.

    Also, I like to write realistic fictions, mostly. I've tried fantasy and historical writing, but world-building and research do not come naturally to me. :P I fully intend to try again at some point, but success is uncertain.

  38. Wow congrats on 400! And what an awesome giveaway. I don't write (if I won the critique would totally go to one of my sisters) but when it comes to reading I'm a rather eclectic reader. I like the stories to have some romance and be Christian or at least clean, but other than that I have a pretty wide range from western, to suspense, to regency, and YA.

  41. Oh wow, these are some juicy giveaways! :D

    Let's see...

    The genres I like to write are:

    Fantasy
    Contemporary fantasy
    Historical Fiction
    YA

    And then sprinkled into all of those genres are a little bit of romance. ;) I don't like to focus just on the romance though, I dig deeper into everything around my MC's.

    As for what I like to read; it's pretty much the same as the genres I write. Though I do prefer fantasy over all other genres; I can never get enough of it.

  47. Four hundred followers?! Wow! That's amazing! Kudos!

    I write fiction, but especially allegorical fantasy fiction for teens and young adults. ;) That's the genre where I feel able to use my talents most naturally, and my writing style seems to fit it perfectly. I used to write just for siblings and friends, but now I'm finishing whole books and looking into getting published! :D

    As you may have guessed, my favorite genre is fantasy. Dun-dun-dun-dunnnn! ^_^ I love allegorical fantasy best, like "Lord of the Rings", "Narnia", "The Door Within", and such. I like seeing the deeper meanings behind stories. Going beneath the surface of the story, if you will. :) However, I also enjoy historical fiction, novels, and practical information books (like crafting books and DIY handbooks). My number one criterion for any reading, however, is this: first of all, it must be fairly clean. So if it's a Christian book, I usually don't have a problem with it. A second criterion is that the book's message must be in line with my beliefs. Anything that endorses witchcraft or disrespect towards parents, for example, is definitely off the list. Again, Christian works normally meet the requirements.

  55. I started out with fantasy, although I primarily referred to myself as a fairytale writer. However, a few years ago I switched to science fiction and never looked back. The more I immerse myself in it the more irreversible my condition seems to be, to the point where I check out books from the science section at the library that I can't even understand. (I failed math...)

    Yay! Congrats on 400 followers. FOUR HUNDRED! That is SO awesome! I remember (because of the free-write contest we had) back when it hit the 256 mark. This blog has gotten so much popularity lately! :)

    I usually write contemporary SciFi/Fantasy and the rare piece of off-beat realistic fiction, or most often, a mix of them all. Mostly I do novels and short stories, all for teens. (I guess I would say 14-plus-ish?) I like to read these kinds of things too--I'll read anything that has interesting characters (especially villains) that I can connect with, but the first thing I go for is YA SciFI. :)

    I like many genres, but don't really read sci-fi or paranormal. My favorite to read are the classics (Austen, Dickens, etc.), which was contemporary at the time but is now historical. I also like to read fantasy and some romance.

    As for writing, I like ... all. I've tried my hand at contemporary, historical, suspense, even sci-fi. My most major WIP is non-magical fantasy, but I want to write an awesome historical novel someday.

    I did a lot of meandering aimlessly through different genres until I tried historical fiction; thence I fell madly in love with it, and never looked back. I'm working on a series about the war of 1812 right now. I love the research you have to do in historical fiction, and the challenge of trying to write the way writers did centuries ago.

  67. Woot woot!

    I do a lot of online writing. Since I'm a young writer, I feel like I'm using the quick-to-critique edge of the internet as a whetstone. I'm in a science lab full of experiments where there's a crowd waiting to tell me if I'm getting it right or wrong.
    Right now I write BBC fanfiction - Doctor Who in particular - and original short stories once in a while. I really enjoy, and plan to write in the long term, dystopian fiction. Also, one of my dearest ambitions is to become a show writer/runner for the above-mentioned TV show.
    I guess fanfiction's unlikely to get me a prize, though ;)

    I write Christian fantasy, but am trying a historical fiction as of now. I read pretty much anything beautiful - romances, Jane Austen, poetry, Shakespeare, but with a Philippians 4:8 motto. (If you're wondering what 'beautiful' means in this instance, think of the feeling you get when you watch an old Audrey Hepburn movie)

  70. Even though I am an antique teen I absolutely LOVE these writers! They transport me to new and exciting places and free my imagination to explore new friends in unusual places. I would love to hone my craft to draw people in the way you do. When life gets hard, I can look forward to escaping to your dimension with new challenges and wonders. ~cherihorgan@yahoo.com

  75. I am in love with ALL of these great prizes! I joined GTW last summer, and immediately felt like I was home. Stephanie, Jill, Roseanna and Rachel, you all are such blessings to me! Thanks seem so lame for all the inspiration you've given me.

    The genre that I am currently focusing on right now is YA Christian Fiction, but I'm hoping someday I can be Christian Suspense Romance author as well... we'll have to see what God has in store for me! :) I love to read Christian Fiction books, especially if there is romance in it(to be honest, I get a little bored if there is none... :P), and Christian Historical Fiction I adore, though I don't know if I'll ever be brave enough to write it...again, we'll just have to see what God's plan is for me! :)

    Thanks!

  78. When two of my friends told me of this blog, I had to admit, I didn't expect much. But this blog has helped me improve so much in my writing.

    I like to experiment with my genres, but at the moment, I enjoy writing science fiction and Christian novels for teenage girls. At a church camp, my writing has been prophesized over, and I feel a great calling in this area of my life to serve my God. I am currently working on a YA Christian fiction novel. It's going very well!

    My contact details are: jesszelli@gmail.com. Thank you for all the brilliant blogs, awesome contests, and helpful tips. I heart Go Teen Writers!

  80. Four hundred followers is awesome! You deserve to have so many too!

    I like to write mainly fantasy. There's something incredibly freeing about creating your own world, especially when it has magic in it. However I also dabble in a little real world fantasy too. It's all fantasy in the end.

    As for reading, I read fantasy (no surprise) sci-fi, and just about anything else apart from horror and romance. One day I'll get the hang of these genres. A new one seems to pop up every day.

  81. Ooh exciting!

    I have written a fantasy/hisfic hybrid, fantasy, historical fiction, futuristic, and am currently writing a contemporary. Ideas for a western, sci-fi, and more futuristics/contemporaries are in the works as well.

    As for reading, I love mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction, old books (think 1800's old) and, well, pretty much anything. With the exception of magical fantasy and steamy romances.

  86. I would have to say that my favorite types of books to read would be along the lines of fantasy, science fiction to adventure novels situated back in WW's (like the Biggles novels).

    I also have tried many times to write stories, They normal end up to be a futuristic fantasy/science fiction.(Like Avatar and Artemis fowl) Currently I am trying to write a science fiction trilogy.

  92. This is so lovely! Thanks so much for putting this up! ^_^

    I don't think I could pinpoint a favorite genre. It's all about the individual books for me, the substance of the stories. I've found that is dystopian novels, fantasies, contemporary general fiction, mysteries... (I'd like to say I'll read any genre depending on the story itself, but... paranormal romance just doesn't hold that much appeal to me. I avoid it on purpose. =P)

    As for writing... my first novel was a kind of medieval adventure-ish thing, I'm currently working on a dystopian, and I have a few ideas/WIPs for contemporary "Man Who Learns Better" type of stories.

  93. Wow. 400 followers is amazing! Congrats!

    I love to read and write historical and Christian contemporary. For historical, Civil War and WWII are my favorites. For contemporary, I like books that make me think and strenthen my faith.

  94. I read a lot. I write a lot. Period. I'll pick up any book I can get my hands on from dystopia to nonfiction. But I'd have to say my FAVORITE is Modern Day Fantasy. I love the thrill of what CAN happen, the POSSIBILITY. I love creating my own world based on possibility. Because there, not even the sky's the limit then. The whole universe is.

  95. WOW! Congradulations! ( I dont' think I spelled that right.)

    I read mostly fantasy (like dragons and stuff) but I also like almost anything historical, romantic, adventurous, or funny, but I will read almost anything. I like to write historical fiction (my newest 'book' is from Jesus's time period), fantasy, and a little dystopian. Christian stuff is also fun to read and write.

  99. Sweet!! Thanks for having this giveaway. All the prizes look fun.

    I write mysteries. The only ones I've actually written down are reality based, but I'm planning a fantasy-mystery, and a dystopia that will probably have a mystery in it.
    I read mysteries and fantasy.

    I write fairy-tale twists, fantasy and historical fiction. I read everything because I don't believe we should be confined to "our" genre- I think every genre is brilliant if the book is well written.

  103. I feel like I jump around genres that I write. I enjoy writing YA fantasy as well as dystopia, but also horror and poetry. Right now I'm working on a Dystopian world that explores human disorders and the mind. :)
    I can read almost anything. For example, my current favorite books are The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, as well as 1984 by George Orwell. I feel the need to "mix it up" when I read, not sticking to one genre for too long.

  104. Yay for GTW!
    I read LOTS of stuff, but mostly Fantasy and Fiction. I write Fantasy, Fiction, Fairytale retellings, spin-offs, and modern translations (I also dream of being a graphic novelist, writing & illustrating them.)Like Stephanie, I can't write anything without a bit of romance (or a lot of it, hehe!)
    My favorite books are the Blood of King's trilogy (by you know who!) and Princess of the Midnight ball (Jessica Day George)

  105. Congrats on reaching 400! This sounds really awesome.

    I read a lot of different genres, mainly fantasy, historical fiction, thriller, mystery, horror... And so on. I just can't decide which one I like better.

    I write all kinds of different things too, although I write a lot of short horror stories. I tend to write stories that have a few genres mixed in. Fantasy, historical, thriller, mostly the stuff I read is what I write. I also can't help putting a little bit of romance into it, but mostly I just like putting gruesome horror into it XD.
