Ah, thank you so much for the warm welcomes. I already feel at home :)

Just wondering, is there a place here where you can post your own historical fiction, like short stories, and critique one another?

The admins had a discussion about this a while back and decided that there were so many critique sites that it wasn't necessary to have one here, especially with the risk of people later claiming plagiarism. (Not to mention the animosity that sometimes ensues when writers get their feelings hurt by criticism.) Also, there was a forum on the old site for people to post their work, and only a couple of people utilized it.

However, if you post your work on another site, like your website or a blog, you're welcome to announce it here and ask people to come to the site and give you feedback.

Hi Lauren,

Not sure about frogs in boxes! but welcome to the forum. Like you I've just joined so still hoping to make aquaintences. Unlike you I'm definately not a mouse - not actually sure what I would be if I was an animal, probably something large and fearsome or large and ??? whatever!

Anyway I hope you enjoy the discussion and like me I hope you find more thrilling books from previously undiscovered authors.
