Stories Needed for Wattpad Monthly Magazine - January 2020 Issue

Hello, everyone! Luli here from the @TeamOfDreams profile. Every month, I select a book to review that is aligned with that month’s theme and it is showcased in our monthly magazine!

I would love to connect with some other writers here and offer you the opportunity to be featured in our magazine. Because these reviews are meant to build you up, there will be nothing but positivity in the review. If you would like me to share constructive criticism, I will either do it directly on the book or in your PMs if you express a preference.


Requirements

- Your story must have at least ten chapters and be updated regularly on Wattpad only. The reason for this is because we want to recommend books that will have an ending and are accessible through Wattpad.

- Your word count per chapter must not exceed 3,000 words. I do have a busy life so if you have 10,000 word chapters, you’ll have to break those up to be considered.

- Your story must be proofread. It is difficult to understand or attempt to understand a book when it is littered with grammatical or spelling errors. This is not an editing service, this is just to help writers get noticed and receive some much needed praise where it’s due.

- Fanfiction is allowed so long as it is an open fanfiction in which knowledge of that fandom is not needed to understand the story. No erotica, flash fiction, or poetry please. We have poetry and flash fiction sections in which you can submit your works for possible inclusion.

- Submitting your work for my consideration does not guarantee that you will be featured in our magazine. To increase your chances, you must have a blurb and a first chapter that captures my attention. It also helps if your book follows the month’s theme. You are free to PM me about your possible blurb or first chapter feedback before submission but please keep in mind that I do have a busy schedule so I might not respond right away.

- It is first come, first serve. I will announce which book has been selected in this thread.

- No backseat critiquing. Please respect my opinion and try your best to avoid controlling how I review your book. It’s a lot less enjoyable for me if there is constant nitpicking. I do have a rubric and it has been quite effective.

- It doesn’t matter how many reads or votes you have. If you meet the requirements previously mentioned, you are eligible!


This month’s theme can be defined by one word: dream.

Number of chapters currently available: 31

Blurb: Elgin is your average city filled with people, trains, fog, victorian era fashion, goat people, and the best alchemy shop one can find. Nothing too bizarre, aside from the children.

Title: Lazari

Genre: Fantasy

Number of Chapters Currently Available: 31 with a prologue and an epilogue (completed)

Blurb: Isma al-Uzkariah, eighth prince of the sultanate of Mour, is far more content spending his days holed up in the palace library with a good book than taking part in numerous hunting parties like his brothers. An outcast even among his siblings, he yearns for a simpler life - one where he is free, as his deceased mother wished for him.

On the night the Sultan falls gravely ill, Isma is approached by Scha Rabeez, the Crown Prince’s betrothed, who urges him to take the throne instead. When he refuses, she curses him with the form of a little boy. Powerless and terrified, Isma flees the palace and eventually falls into the reluctant company of an outlander called Einar Blodvarg, whose grim silence hides a dark and tormented past. Guided only by a letter from a grandmother he has never met and the dubious assistance of a pair of siblings who are not at all trustworthy, Isma must now find a way to be free of the curse before Scha destroys his family - and the whole of Mour with them.

The Apprentice Assassin

Fantasy
Chapter’s 20
The%20Apprentice%20Assassen

Magic, power, and blood. It’s all about who you know. Thomas was raised to be a fighter. With no known magical power to speak of. He pushed himself harder to gain the respect he desired. Joining the military at sixteen, he rose through the ranks as fast as he could, even going so far as to accepting vision-enhancing implants. Seven years later, his hard work finally paid off. He and his squadmates are sent on a mission to the eastern continent to recover secret documents from a rogue faction of spies. The information is said to contain information on the Flara, a group of shady billionaires who are slowly buying up every corporation they can get their hands on, and the weakness to the Cantorians. An evil group of seemingly immortal creatures with powers beyond the human scope.

Title: Restoration
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, etc
Subplot: Romance
Books: Trilogy
Status: Under Reconstruction
Chapters: 26
(Chapters are above 3k words, but they are broken off into parts to make it easier to read)

Book 1 has completely been reconstructed/ edited and is within its cleanest state. Roughly 100 parts, maybe slightly less. As such, it has been released and marked completed.

Summary:

Power is something that is a double-edged sword. It can do much good, but at the same time cause much destruction. Maria, who was once whole, and lived with pride and honor is now in two. One half good, and the other half evil. Both reflections of Maria herself. Now bound to the weaker half, under the name of Cyra, she aims to right the wrong that has been comitted. Though what wrong could that be? Will she succeed? Or will her enemies?

“Even though my intentions were good, that is but an excuse. Such an action is unforgivable…”

“My other half…when will you cease this pointless resistance, and join me to become whole once again?”

“I will no longer live in your shadow, Maria!”

Now a fierce battle begins. What will be unraveled of Maria’s past? Why does her evil half despise her? All of this may be answered.

It’s a trilogy, and all books are connected.

Hello! I’m not sure if it quite fits the theme, but I’ll apply for consideration just in case.

Title: The Wings of Storm
Genre: Portal fantasy adventure
Blurb:
Tahro Akagi shouldn’t live in two worlds at once.

Yet, forced to spend his days studying by a no-nonsense mother, he longs for adventure. At a moment of desperation, Tahro finds himself in Saishuu Riku, the lands of his favourite book. Engrossed in this world more than he ever thought possible, Tahro saves a character’s life.

But if a butterfly’s wings can bring thunderstorms, then his every breath is another flap as it flies, his every heartbeat a danger to those around him.

Unwittingly, he becomes entangled in a web of conspiracies between ministers, a murderous witch and a kidnapper with butterfly-patterned knives. Tahro learns he’s changed the plot too much. Events that should happen don’t and his new friends are caught in a crossfire he wants no part in.

And when his friend is kidnapped, saving her could put everyone else in danger. Yet Tahro can’t stand by and watch.

Title: My Secret Mobster Boyfriend
Author: AthenaKosalla
Genre: Romance, General Fiction, Action/Thriller, New Adult
Number of Chapters: 10, ongoing with weekly updates
Cover:

Blurb
“I only have three conditions: you’ll accompany me whenever your presence is needed, don’t tell anyone this isn’t real and do not fall in love with me.”

Dark prince meets nerdy doctor: Cate needs a boyfriend to avoid dreadful embarrassment at her upcoming high school reunion. Dray needs to bring home a girl with marriage potential before he will be allowed to take over the family business. In the absence of better options they agree to help each other. But with them obviously living in two completely different worlds, can this fateful deal really work out or will everything just end in an epic disaster?

Note: The “dream” is relevant in my book for two reasons. 1st: the female lead, for some reasons, ends up changing her original dream/vision of the future. 2nd: she suffers from certain dreams due to a trauma.
