The running gag of my high quality written prose has been going on for quite some time. It is time to clear the mystery about it, once and for all.
It started because of my application for admission to one of the Graduate Degree programs of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University. I got talking with a few of the professors (no names!) via emails, potential advisors I was hoping would be interested in having me over. One of the professors expressed surprise and appreciation for, in his words, was my “high quality written prose“. I found it amusing, but also slightly condescending at the time (“what did you expect?“), even though I chose to politely let the “compliment” slide.
I remember sharing it with my internet friends in some of the chats, and it just kind of stuck, and now Novi’s high quality written prose is as much fact as it is immortalised legend. Go figure.
You know who really has high quality written prose? This awesome bunch of writers who aptly call themselves The Superstars, curated by the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Lauren K. Nixon. I know some of them personally, and I consider it my absolute honour that I am a friend to such amazingly talented people, and a privilege knowing they are equally adorable and kind souls in real life.
If you are reading this, I urge you to check them out. You may or may like their kind of storytelling, but everything in this world is worth a look at. You never know.
Here is the link to Lauren’s website. You will find the complete list of books, as well as the respective links to the various online stores they are available at (Amazon UK | Amazon US | Kobo | Nook | Smashwords | Barnes & Noble | iBook). If you do explore their tiny but beautiful world of stories and decide that you enjoyed your stay there, you would be kind enough to leave an honest review at the store and/or on Goodreads.
Bonus: Coming soon!
