Welcome to AW, Maria! It's nice to meet you & congrats on finishing your first novel! :)

You'll love it here, I'm sure. AW is, in my opinion, the internet's best writing resource and community. There is more information tucked away within the forums on all aspects of writing and publishing than you'll ever need and the folks here are very friendly. AW is large, so it can be easy to get lost/overwhelmed at first but if you take your time getting to know the place you'll be comfortable soon enough.

Please carefully read the Newbies Guide you were linked to when you registered, plus the stickied/pinned threads in each subforum. These will help you understand the overall rules of the forums, as well as the etiquette and culture of the various spaces within.

You'll likely enjoy our Romance | Women's Fiction room as well as our grand Science Fiction | Fantasy hall. Too, check out our International District, where we can connect with members from all over the globe. Our Novels subforum might also be a nice place to start exploring from.

Explore, lurk if you like, join in conversations you find fun or interesting if you like, make friends, enjoy yourself!

See you around the boards :D

Welcome, and congratulations on finishing your first novel. Is it fantasy, romance, or a mixture of those two genres you mentioned?

I just registered earlier this week myself, and so far it seems to be a great place :)

It is a mixture. It's more a fantasy with romance that moves the plot forward.

And welcome to you, too! What kind of fantasy is your novel?
Thank you! My writing is all over the place, but the one that I just finished is a fantasy that involves Egyptian gods and it's set in our world with a twist. I almost want to say is urban fantasy, but it's not set in a specific city per se. :)

I feel this. My finished novel is also partially set in our world, but I'm not quite comfortable with the urban fantasy label. It doesn't quite feel accurate, yet nothing else fits.
