Interesting idea that the main character may explore artworks in ways no one else does! Iā€™m an artist and when I see an elaborate artwork I often pretend if I could travel inside the picture and what would I discover!

I would like to see your book chapters be available as audio so I can listen to it while I am doing something else!

I would be devastated to wake up to a world with no moon. The moon is my favorite part of the sky. This acts as a reminder to not take things for granted. Here one minute, gone the next.

Beautiful. 1. I am no poetry expert. I enjoyed the read. 2. I love the teaser. 3. I am serializing my WIP novel but am not currently reading one on Substack. I am genre picky. I'm not usually a fantasy fan but I LOVE the description of your story.

This was great, Priya!

I did not know the moon was edging away! That makes me sad too. But I loved your poem about it leaving.

I also really enjoyed the snippet of your novel, it is written very well, and the story flows in a way that is engaging and leaves me wanting more.

I look forward to reading it as it comes out :)
