After growing up in Victoria, I moved to Queensland in 2002. Currently, my schedule involves juggling work, work, work, and work, no time for sleep, and writing - but I hope to knock out a couple of those works someday soon.
Developing interesting characters, and delivering stories with purpose, are the key things I seek in my writing.
I don't own a cat, but there's a stray which occasionally hunts outside the window at night.

Vampire Granny Visits - For Dinner
by BD Branchy
Dusk has fallen, Hildur is asleep, when granny arrives, for dinner. And she isn't a vegetarian.
Caution: This is no lovey-dovey modern version of vampires. You are warned. It's also possibly the darkest of all stories in the series. Won't say more, because it'll be a spoiler.

Smashwords book reviews by BD Branchy
- Obsolete Protection

I couldn't decide on 2 or 3 stars.
The writing began rather jagged, before managing to settle into a rhythm.
I had trouble feeling anything for the protagonist. He certainly didn't care for him, relate to him, and his emotions felt artificial.
The world setting was perfect.
As a prologue, did it encourage me to read the rest. Sadly no.

It's not illegal to use a comma, particularly when a sentence is 40+ words.
Grammar doesn't need to be perfect, but really. The only horror here, is how this story hasn't been edited. It's positively dreadful.
Sorry, but it is.

This is a good first draft. The language is like having a foam block, marked out, but the cutting, and filling hasn't been done.
Quote: "I leapt over the prone form of a trooper who came sliding down the stairs and sprinted forward, pushing men in front of me."
This sequence of events makes zero sense.
Saying this, it isn't horrible, and with work, it could have been very good.

I was hoping for something insightful, or maybe funny, or maybe interesting in another way. In the end, I don't even know what your intent of this piece is.
I'm sure your other works are better.

I like your writing. The first half of this story is almost perfect. I found the latter part did lose the plot a bit, a little frazzled, but maybe if you have a fan club, they'll love it.
I'll see if there's any of your stories which sounds like they'll be to my taste.

The letter was the right way to present this story. Not sure about the ending, but that's just me, and is otherwise a fine piece of work.

The biggest tyranny is where only one viewpoint in life is permitted, and any deviation of that is death.
Wrong = right, tyranny = freedom, but I guess that every despot thinks they're better than that. It's called delusion, and this isn't good delusion at that.

I would encourage anybody who starts reading this, to read it until the end. The ending really makes this story.

Really good solid world, characters, and storyline. I was able to picture the surroundings, and I cared to see what what happen with the main characters.
Only tiny things, I didn't really feel as if the prime character was female in the beginning, and some of the paragraphs were a bit long, but these don't detract from an excellent story.
