Hey guys, I'd love some feedback on my book if anyone's willing?
Blurb: Set in the future, civilization is on the rebound from an apocalyptic event. We meet Dionysus, the most notorious criminal to be found with murder and arson as just the tip of the iceberg! But Cynthia might just discover that he's not such a bad guy after all, in fact he may just be a good guy in disguise.
I've belonged to this site for a while now, but only started taking it seriously a short time ago. Recently, I uploaded my first semi-successful attempt at science fiction, and I would love to get some feedback on it. The concept was a broad one: how would the world be changed by a global nuclear war? Humanity wouldn't survive. at least not in the state that we are now, but the world would continue to spin. The radiation would be vented out of the atmosphere within 400 ... See More years, give or take a century, and the world would continue spinning in it's newly modified form, this time without human interference.
That was where the idea came from. I placed my characters in cryogen for 500 years, and woke them up in this new world. I've done my best to avoid political, religious, or moral subtext, in the interest of just writing a decent sci-fi. I would love to have some feedback! Thanks for being excellent.
Just discovered your group. Good to find fellow writers.. We live in Newfoundland - don't know any other SF writers out here - perhaps you.do.
Have written some fairly good nuts-and-bolts stories - but the market for these is shrinking. But it's more important for me to share the ideas than to make money.
Also can contribute some practical engineering ideas for travel at light speed, and faster, which I'd be happy to share. Plus a sound understanding of quantum ... See More and medical science. . .
Who's your moderator, and where might I go from here. Do please e-mail.

(The dot between David and Playfair is important, without it the message goes to the other David Playfair in Australia - a nice guy but not interested in SF.)

Ive written and updated my story Hayley to include another chapter in between three and four. This is the link to my story if you want to check it out https://www.inkitt.com/stories/scifi/80992?ref=a_90e1c23b-f232-4ae1-b70b-16d8519662e9&started_reading=true
I still need a blurb, but its a new story that Im working on creating. Its about a girl named Hayley who was born with a mutation. The year is 2186. Earth was left nearly uninhabitable as the Alliance tries to find new homes and ... See More new planets to colonize. They left Earth behind. The Alliance is made up of different casts with the top being the Elites, the second is Midlanders and the third is Grounders. The fourth tier is the beggars or people without a home or money. Hayley struggles to grow up in a universe. This will be my first book in a trilogy that i am planning on.
So, I'm thinking of creating a cyberpunk story, but my knowledge of cyberpunk is severely lacking. I have some basics figured out for conflicts of the world I want to create - which are the basics of cyberpunk in general - as well as some positives about the world. I even have character types I plan to explore. What I need is some suggestions for material to read that's in the genre in order to make me more familiar with it. Anyone got any suggestions?
Hello, I'm new on Inkitt and have published my first book: To Dream. Here's the teaser:
Painting small strokes on the canvas cut like a knife. A knife covered with my own blood and filled with my own guilt. I couldn't believe what I was doing was wrong. I loved dreaming.
To Dream-by Catherine Kopf
If you want to check it out, I've left the link below. It's a cross between both Fantasy and Sci-Fi!
Thanks for reading and feel free to review!

So I have my basic story idea and two main characters plus some other minor ones. I've worked out a lot of what their world is like, I've plotted a future history from now to the point where the story takes place. I've worked through a lot of the societal implications of the new technology I need and tried to list, for myself, the obvious spin off technologies that would arise from the major new technologies. I've started on some maps of the various worlds and important ... See More cities. I have deliberately not yet started writing the main story as I want the world to be a consistent place where, once I get started on writing the story, it should flow from the world in which the action happens.
My basic characters are outsiders with a few (fully explained) oddities that give them some advantages, but also a few problems. I'm aiming at the YA audience and planning that the main characters will be attracted to each other although not a couple, or at least not for some time. Maybe a few books in if I get that far.
Very much Sci-Fi rather than fantasy, but I won't be ramming technology down people's throats, There may be a child character knocking about who can occasionally ask the important questions that need to be brought up and answered, but I won't overdo that.
This is the first time I've attempted this, do any of you have any suggestions? Is the way I'm going about it a valid one? It seems viable to me, but what do you think?
Hello scifi fans. New to Inkitt. Just posted my scifi/mystery novel MURDER BEYOND THE MILKY WAY. Would love to hear anyone ideas on how to attract readers.
Hello, all. Today I've just joined Inkitt and immersed myself if this community of readers and writers. Doing so, I also uploaded the first part of my book I've worked on for quite some time, called Heaven and Hell. It's a romance, sci-fantasy novel that fits into the YA genre nicely. I don't want to say more before I spoil or give away anything else. Oh, and I've also submitted it to the fantasy contest just to test the waters and see where everything goes. Constructive criticism, feedback, etc
is greatly appreciated as this is the first time my manuscript has been brought public.
Introducing myself, I'm a high school junior that loves both the sciences and literature (although of course language arts is my highest subject). Reading and writing are no stranger to me as in fact they are my constant companions through life. I'm from California and love travelling; I'd love to study abroad and meet new people and places to not only affect my writing but also my perspectives.
Nevertheless, I'm hopeful that Inkitt is the trunk of where I can branch out to read other's stories and vice versa. Whilst making lots of friends :)
Strap in, blast off, and discuss all things Sci Fi. Talk steampunk, space travel, time travel, and all else in between.
